- Plenty of models online Ė rarely fewer than 1,000
- Great variety of models, and no shortage of absolute stunners
- Lots of variety in terms of shows, too, with lots of creativity
- Many models are on daily, and for many, many hours
- Most models are polite and obliging and look after regulars
- Likewise, most members seem to be respectful
- The site can be as cheap or expensive as you make it
- Easy to browse models, and I love the live preview feature
- Many models offer upsell videos/private galleries for tips
- Simple to buy more tokens (although arguably this is a con)
- Billing by CCBill or Epoch (depending on your preference)
Points marked with * don't bother me personally:
- Clearly, MFC can be addictive and expensive
- Itís easy to overlook hotter models due to low camscores
- No ideal way to bookmark favourites/hide least favourites
- The website is quite basic/low-fi in a few respects
- Less popular models can sometimes be a big clingy
- No hardcore action*
This is my first cam site. As people have said before, itís an addictive concept but if you do have self-control it should be a fairly inexpensive way to enjoy some pretty hot talent.
There is a huge mix of models, and although itís personal preference, about 15% are really hot, 30% are good looking, 25% pretty average, 15% not really to my taste and 15% being pretty ugly.
The homepage displays all available models as profile pics, but you can toggle onto live cam preview mode which is a great feature and makes it easy to jump into a room that suits your immediate taste.
You can filter what models you view, too Ė you can filter by region (eg, Asia, South America, USA, etc) and how the models are sorted.
You can watch all cams as a free member, although most models mute basic/free members meaning you canít chat.
The majority of models follow a pretty simple principle of flashing for tips, working towards various targets such as topless, nude, masturbation/toys or cumshow.
Many models try different and fun ways of getting members to tip such as clearing a whiteboard of various token amounts to go nude, a lucky dip whereby you tip an amount and behind a card will be an action the model performs, strip poker etc etc.
Some models will do the same format with every show, some will mix it up.
You can be a freeloader on MFC, but you have to be careful. You can only really get away with being a freeloader in a busier room where people are tipping. In moderately busy rooms, itís generally fine if youíre not asking the model to do too much. If you go into a quieter room, the model will probably be pleading for tips. Tokens are a maximum of $0.10 each. Typical tip amounts are:
10 tokens is probably the least you can tip without being stingy
50 is generally a typical amount for a tit-flash
50-10 is typical for a pussy flash
The amount for models going topless or nude varies too much to even summarise, but the lower the camscore, generally the lower the target (or at least, more flexible).
Other things models will often accept tips for are Skype shows, adding them as a friend on MFC, even giving you their phone number. If privates are open, theyíll often expect a specified amount of tips before going private.
A lot of models offer videos, often hardcore, for tokens. Hang around in the room before buying just to make sure the model isnít offering a special discount (most generally do).
INTERACTION FROM MODELS
The least I have got from models is Ďthank youí in reply to a compliment or tip. Most are better than this, though, and normally address members by username and engage in conversation. Most do this verbally, some with the chat function. Some models are more about stripping than chatting, some are the other way round.
Most models are really chatty and engage well with fans, particularly if English is their first language. Lots of others make an effort, while some others just sit there looking bored.
Less popular models will often instigate conversation by PM, which is nice but obviously their agenda is to encourage you to tip. This is a bigger problem in the less popular rooms. One model I follow is particularly clingy and will PM even when youíre not in their room.
When browsing, I normally click on Ďmenuí under their thumbnail as that shows how many people are in the room. If the number is under 10, thatís a quiet room and thereís a higher chance youíll feel obliged to tip.
You donít need to have a membership to browse and watch, but in the majority of rooms you need to be a premium member to interact with the models. You only need to buy 200 tokens to unlock these extra features.
Topping up with more tokens is easy; you can top up with 200 ($19.99, $0.10p/token), 500 ($49.99, $0.09p/t), or 900 ($74.99, $0.08p/t). Itís easy to top up using CCBill or Epoch.
Keeping track of favourites isnít as refined as it should be. You can get emailed when a favourite comes online, but thereís no on-site notification. It would be nice just to see a page of favourites and whether theyíre online or not.
Make sure you scroll right down the cam show listings. Thereís a greater chance of ugliness, but thereís a lot of hotties who havenít amassed a high cam score. Some are hot and some really try, but I guess itís a Ďrich get richerí scenario where the models with the high cam scores will get more-and-more popular.
Read modelsí profiles before you join their room. Some will take great pleasure in tearing you a new one for asking them to go nude for 10 tokens when theyíre actually non-nude models.
Itís a great site with a lot of great models and a respectful membership. The interface is a bit clunky and not as refined as it possibly should be, but itís an addictive site that can take up a lot of time (and money).
If you liked my review, let me know and Iíll let you know which camgirls to look out for.
Was a member approx. 2 months prior to this review.
- 1,000 models online at any time. Many from US, Canada, UK.
- Unusual cam site: each room is different and has its own rules.
- Public chat may have nudity, masturbation, girl- girl action.
- Token packages vary from 0.10 to 0.08 USD/token.
- Same price/minute for all models: private, 60 tokens; spy, 20; group, 10.
- All private shows recorded by the site. Unlimited free replays.
- Archive of all text chats: public, private, group or private messaging.
- Token tips as a currency: videos, panties, skype shows, raffle tickets, ...
- Detailed log of tokens spent: tips, privates or group chats.
- Model profiles often have room rules and contact info (email, twitter).
- May opt to receive free SMS or email when favorites come online.
- Interaction with fellow members: lounge, messaging, watch their cam.
- Ignore option for all guests or basic users or any particular member.
- Models get 0.05USD/token: around 60%; at other cam sites, 30-35%.
- Billed by ccbill or epoch. No regional pricing.
- Myspace ainít dead: it lives in most models profile layouts.
- Chat allows irritating emoticons and font face/color combinations.
- Very unpolished interface: pop-ups, ugly icons, frames.
- Buggy site: random lags and stutters. Every browser has own issues.
- Site often fails to notify when favorites come online or finish a private.
- ĒTrue privateĒ shows, where no one may spy, cost 80 tokens/minute.
- Lack of categorization: geographic region or model self-tags only.
- Models often ask for 100+ tokens to Private Message them.
- Daily spending limit for new members is too high (300+ USD).
- Very few adult models or porn stars. Almost none is popular here.
- Many models are obsessed with their Cam Score or ranking.
- There doesnít seem to be any policing / moderation.
- Boy- girl shows are not allowed but some models offer them off-site.
- Some members tip obscenely high amounts to models.
This is a pretty unusual cam site which probably explains its popularity. I have, in fact, seen models who were popular at other sites switch to this one. You do have the chance to take a model private / group as in any cam site. But then there are the tips and the public sex shows for tips.
Some models donít even accept privates; the way they get tokens, apart from the occasional public show, varies from just sitting on public room talking to viewers and thanking them for tips they send out of free will to playing a game or setting up some scheme of their own so people send tokens their way. They may also have some raffle going on, whether itís for an iPod, used panties or, occasionally, a chance to meet them in person. Some take this a step further and bring along their cam while driving, laying on the beach, riding a train or on a plane. And people still tip them. Believe it or not, some of these are quite up in the rankings, meaning they probably make more tokens than others that just do sex shows.
Even though every room is different, site offers models few tools to manage it. Models may set up a room topic (a line of text at the top of the page) and have a profile page where they may explain what they offer at length. But apart from that, site offers nothing but tip collecting. For instance, if she sets a countdown for a public show, she has to notice all tips and subtract them from the goal, using a calculator if needed. Raffles usually require a supply of papers, pencil and a fish bowl: you tip and, if the model notices, writes your name in as many papers as the tip allows and puts them in the fish bowl. Raffle always last for days but thereís no public record of existing raffle tickets.
Public room may also be watched with a free account (basic users) or even with no account at all (guests). Models may block guests (almost always) and basics (frequently) from talking. Since public shows are easily recorded on the userís computer and end up around the Internet, itís not usual for models to add some kind of watermark on their cam feed with their name to get some credit.
While other cam sites try to milk every bit of interaction between members and models, MFC looks the other way when models offer skype shows in exchange for paypal or amazon wish list gifts. Needless to say that email address, twitter account or personal website address will be listed on their profile. Itís not unusual to see models offering to sell used panties, videos, picture sets or even their private phone number for a certain amount of tokens or its equivalent in paypal / gifts. Site also prides itself on giving most of the earnings to models; many models publicly say that they are getting 0.05 USD/token which is around 60% of what users pay; afaik, other sites pay models 35% at most. The downside is that you end up underestimating your tips because itís easier to calculate what the models get (x0.05) than what it costs you (x0.08+).

-Tons of models
-Lots of good looking models
-Decent video quality
-Good Chat Layout
-Same price per minute for all models
-Some of the models have tried to edit their own profile pages, and you can't read them.
-I've seen the entire site crash a few times, not sure if it's bugs or server overloads
-Models ranked by cam scores, so the shows become all about how much people tip, how often, etc.
-Men not allowed on the cams with the women
This system at first glance is pretty amazing, some of the girls doing masturbation, and toy play in free areas, but then you realize that men can't be on the cams with them, and that is something I'm more than happy to pay extra for. The site has crashed a few times while I was paying for a group show, and sometimes the models seem to be a little stressed out from some of the comments made by viewers. Overall it's not a bad cam site, just needs a few tweaks.

+ Models from all over the world. US, European, South American. Most Asians are actually on a separate site.
+ There are softcore shows in public chat all of the time. Although each model is different, and some will never get naked in Public.
+Usually between 600 and 1000 models on at any time.
+The Profile system gives a good way for models to tell you a little bit about themselves.
+The Profile system is very nice and allows for a great deal of customization.
+A rewards system that gives you more options and cheaper tokens as you spend more money.
+The Lounge is a great place to find out where the free shows are happening. It's also a great place to find out about fun new models.
+I've only contacted Customer Service 2 times, and received resolutions within 24 hours both times.
+Private chats are recorded, and you can view at anytime.
+Models can easily view your cam. And many will!
+Models get paid better than at most sites.
+Group shows are inexpensive at 80 cents per minute.
--Although true of every Cam site, it is Expensive!
-The picture size is very small compared to Live Jasmin. They really need to up this.
-They can be pretty strict especially with American models. Generally the American Public shows will be tamer than the non-American shows. No penetration in public. Although foreign models seem to not get in trouble for it.
- They do not allow BDSM, Peeing, Skat (thank goodness) anywhere on the site.
- If you want to have a conversation with a popular model, be prepared to buy their affection. The most popular models will have 40+ paying customers in their room, so good luck getting noticed.
- Privates are ridiculously expensive at $4.80 per minute. Or $288 per hour!
- The site can have stability issues occasionally. Although this is getting better.
- They need a built in translator. Especially for the models.
- Even in Groups, some models won't do much without extra tips.
- Many members can be absolutely horrible to the models.
I've been a member at MFC for about a year now. My biggest gripe is the cost. I initially did a few Privates, but now I refuse to do them. There are much better things to spend close to $300 an hour for!
I mostly stick to Group Shows as a result. Since you can get these for about 80cents a minute, a 18 minute show is still under $15. And if you are willing to make some friendships with some of the lesser known models, they are plenty happy to have someone who will stay in a group show and will give you all the attention you want.
Another option that is gaining popularity among the less popular models is they will do a Skype/MSN/Yahoo show for a set number of tokens. Many of the non American models will do a 20 minute show for between 200-300 tokens or roughly $20. Just remember though, the popular models will likely charge 500-1000 tokens for a 20 minute show. However, once you get a model on Skype, and establish a relationship. Always ask if they are open to payment via Paypal. In this way you can often give the model more money, and save money yourself. Many models will do a 20 minute show for $15 over paypal since they get all the money.
Some of the Reward type of things you get are as follows:
1) Once you have purchased 10000 tokens you get access to a Lounge chat room that is much more mature.
2) Eventually you can get your token costs down to less than .08 per token. You can purchase 3775 Tokens after awhile for 299.99, which works out to 7.95 cents per token.
3) Once you spend 1000 tokens on one model you get access to a private gallery with pictures from privates they have done.
I've really enjoyed my time on MFC, as long as I don't think about my Credit Card statement to hard. But it is possible to have loads of fun there, and get to chat with some beautiful, and some cases very intelligent women. If you are mainly looking to chat, there are lots of models on there who are bored often, so are very happy to just chat.
Bottom line is, MFC does need to do some serious technical upgrades. But at the core of things, their business model is good. And if you are willing to pass on Privates, you can have lots of fun for a reasonable amount of money.

-there are usually 800 to 1200 models online at any given time, and another similar amount offline. There are many, many very attractive girls here! Every body type, nationality, porn niche, and personality type can be found here.
-I hope the site administrators dont get mad at me for saying it, but it is easy to enjoy most of what this site has to offer without spending a dime! You simply go to the site and enter any model's chat room as a guest. You can also register as a "basic" by giving them your contact info (name and email). Guests and basics cannot join group shows or do privates, but many models do strip shows and masturbation shows in their public chat rooms once paying members have tipped the requested amount.
-for paying members a video is made of all private chats you do, and kept indefinitely in your archive
-you can add a large number of models to your favorites list, and get notified by email whenever they log on
-private messaging/emails to models
-MFC is more expensive than most webcam sites ($5 a minute for private chats if you buy 900 tokens at a time). Some models do offline Skpe shows for online tips that work out to a cheaper rate than this.
-one of my biggest gripes is the lack of a user comment section for private chats. You can rate the private, and send a comment to the model, but you can't make a comment that can be read by the general membership. You can leave a comment on her profile page, but the vast majority of those are not comments about private chats.
-As others have noted, you can get addicted to webcam sites, and MFC is no exception. In addition to blowing a lot of money, you can also waste a LOT of time here. If you're low on self discipline, you're probably better off never visiting the site.
-the spot a model gets on the homepage is determined by her cam score (which is essentially based on how much money she makes). At times this seems unfair-maybe they could come up with something different
MFC and Streamate are my two favorite webcam sites, and I meant to write this reveiw right after I did my review of Streamate, but I ran out of time. Both sites have good and bad points.
One thing about MFC that is different from other webcam sites is how the membership interacts with the models. Its a little difficult to explain, but the end result is that you can get to know a model better at MFC than probably any other site. The chat room has a list of all premium and basic members on the right, a chat display in the middle, and the model's video feed on the left. The more popular rooms will often have an active ongoing discussion between the members and model that can include anything as the topic (how her day is going, what type of sex she likes best, etc). If you go into a models chat room on a regular basis, over time you will learn a lot about her. In addition to this, there is a private messaging system, so you can talk one on one with a model if you have anything to discuss with her that you don't want the general membership to see (like what you would like her to do in a private chat). Most models do some type of countdown show, where they will do a strip show and/or masturbate after a certain number of tokens have been tipped by everyone in the room. This usually results in a lot of time for the members to interact with the model. This along with the combination of active public chat and private messaging results in a better interaction with the models than any other webcam site I've been to. Again, its a little hard to explain, but MFC definitely does this well.
A few things are worth noting for new members or persons who have never been to a webcam site before.
First, many models work multiple webcam sites. If you see a girl typing for no apparent reason, she may be interacting on another site. So there will be times when you type a comment in the chat room and the model doesn't immediately respond. It doesn't mean she's being rude. Other sites have their own unique sounds that you may learn to recognize if her sound is on(MFC has a distinctive "chime" sound when the model gets a tip).
Second, video quality will vary with the models equipment. In general, it's still not that good, and no where near true HD quality. MFC did recently add a full screen video option, but if a model is streaming at VGA quality, it will be pixelated. This is one of the more disappointing things about webcam sites, but obviously will get better over time.
Third, there are a lot of European girls here, and not all of them read and speak good English. If you have specific requests for a private chat, make sure she understands what you want before you the click the button.
Fourth, there are a few models on every site who are "time wasters" in their private chats. They will stall for time by typing questions, dancing, and generally not getting naked and doing what you want them to do. When I encounter this, I end the chat very quickly, but not before I let them why.
Finally, you really need to set yourself a monthly budget if you are going to use these sites. It is very easy to blow a lot of money. You have to ask yourself what you are looking for at a webcam site that you can't get from a regular porn site. If you don't have a good answer, then stay away from them if you don't have self discipline. I did what a lot of people probably do, initially spent a lot more money than I should have, before settling down to spending very little.
MFC prides itself on paying the models more than any other webcam site (supposedly 50% of the tips versus 25% to 30% at other sites). That's all fine and good, but I wonder if they do anything to help new models learn the ropes if you will. I've seen quite a few new models who are very attractive and you would think should do well, but they end up doing poorly, having their cam score fall like a rock, and dropping down to page 2, where very few members go (btw check it on a regular basis--there are some really hot girls there too). They may have a FAQ for new models, but I've seen too many new models make common errors that result in their cam score dropping. Things like not showing their face on their video feed, setting a token target for a strip show that is way too high, wearing too much or otherwise not showing enough of their body to get members so horny that they can't resist taking them private, etc. Having just said that, I guess I would be remiss if I didn't call out all of the assinine members who type rude comments, and the never ending crowd of freeloaders who never tip the models. I really feel bad sometimes for some of these girls. They put up with a lot of BS on a daily basis, and everyone's always wanting a free show. So guys, be nice to the girls, and do tip them if you can.
Bottom line, you can have a LOT of fun at MFC (and other webcam sites), but be careful with your wallet.

Great looking babes. A large selection of ladies to choose from also. The ladies with HD cameras gives you a real nice feeds. Not really necessary to spent a dime to really get off. The girls are friendly.
The cost of Privates and groups are expensive. You need a good amount of self control to not over spend.
If you are into the live cam scene. It probably the best run site. The babes are hot.

-Many, many American, European and Asian models online, including some pornstars like Aria Giovanni and Teagan Presley and nude models like Ashanti (MET) and Mullty (My18Teens, etc.)
-Great variety of models. Girl/girl, BBW, Glamour, Teenie, BDSM, Squirt, etc.
-You can see pretty much anything for free
-Terrific interface with tons of options
-Huge member community
-Model and member profile pages
-"No guys" on camera. Pro for me. YMMV.
-Daily spending limits (negotiable)
-Reasonably quick replies *most* to inquries, complaints
-Privates are expensive.
-Camera, lighting, sound quality controlled by models and can vary greatly in quality.
-Frequent rudeness by members toward models and members. The price of a low membership cost.
-Rankings susceptible to manipulation (Most won't care).
-Inquiries, complaints occasionally ignored.
-You can spend a LOT of money there, which you may or may not have.
So I haven't been visiting here so often because I've been passing a lot of time at this site. If you find yourself with time on your hands and a few bucks, this is a great place to spend them.
You can experience most of the content without paying a penny, but it's really worth spending the US$19.99 to have access to the private/group shows, lounge, private messaging, model ratings, tipping of favourite models, etc.
Costs work out as low as ~$0.08/token after the first few purchases. Models/studios get US$0.05/tk. True privates: 80 tk/min (US$6.40). Open privates (chat hidden/sound & video open): 60 tk/min (US$4.80). Spying on open privates, no chat: 20 tk/min (US$1.60). Group shows: 10 tk/min (US$0.80).
Free shows: Free!
Tips: As much as you can afford and then some.
Some models don't do privates or groups, but prefer to entertain members in free chat and collect tips. They can also change their minds and only do privates with people they like.
Some models allow anyone to PM them for free, others are selective, and others request a tip for the privilege.
The lounge is the town square. You can view free shows, shoot the breeze, gossip about models, spy on privates and view group shows from there. It's mostly used to discuss models. You can link model names and other members can see a current snapshot of their room and a brief profile of the model.
My Free Cams is not the kind of place to depend on if you are PRIMARILY interested in private chat unless you have a lot of spending money. Many of the models are also listed on other sites that charge less for that privilege. It would probably be considered bad manners to ask a model if she did cheaper privates elsewhere, so do your own research.
The beauty of MFC is that you can spend hours (24/7) there chatting with (mostly) beautiful models in various stages of undress and in various stages of arousal without spending a penny, if you so choose. Models are doing this to make money, so tipping is always appreciated, and recommended, but it is not essential to the enjoyment of the site.
Models have extensive profiles where you can learn as much as they'd like for you to know about them and message walls where you can express your admiration. Members may also create profile pages if they like.
A site by geeks for geeks. The interface is the most sophisticated I've seen anywhere. The search function could use some improvement, but beside that the account management and other options are many and useful.

Excellent site! They have hundreds of beautiful girls live on cam, including everyone from some hot college girl in her dorm room, to famous porn stars. You can have lots of fun without ever spending a dime. Or you can pay for a private show, or tip the model for a little something extra.
The site takes a huge percentage of the tips that the models get. i don't really agree with this. i understand that the site has to make money off of the private shows, but 100% of tips should go to the models, in my opinion.
It's a great site. A lot of the girls on there are really cool, and they're all super hot!

A fascinating site when you are horny and also when you are not.
Usually between 800 and 1400 models are available and can be viewed in my favorite setting "Cam Previews Small" where you see a quick picture of what was happening on the model's page only moments before.
This is a fascinating microcosm of model performance with everything from non-nude pretty girls chatting to active models performing self gratification or gratifying other models with hands, tongues, and dildos.
The site is free and for many can provide hours of free entertainment. The temptation to go from just a "guest" to a signed up member to a paying "premium member" who tips and gets extra status with the models is VERY TEMPTING, however.
No male models, no trannies, no heterosexual couples. Only females here.
If you have a lack of self control, you might be like me and spend huge amounts of money here to be a "big shot" and have some of the prettiest girls you've ever seen smiling, kissing, oohing and aahing when you greet them. It is a fantasy experience that is far more addictive than the sex you see here. Chatting with pretty women who pretend you're important is very addictive....BE WARNED.
On the whole I love the site and have spent lots of time looking for another cam site that compares.......none do so far.
