What’s a Bonga?
We did our usual research, as with any other webcam site that we review, but we haven’t found much info on bongacams.com. We know it went live sometime at the beginning of February 2012 and it quickly became one of the most popular free adult cam sites you could find today.
What can you tell us about it then?
Well, I’ll just dive right it and try to give it our usual user point of view review.
We like the design and I personally think it’s one of the best designs I’ve ever seen on a live cam site. I’m not talking about aesthetics, but I really like the site’s structure and the amount of features it lets you access without even having to register.
For example, you can choose how many models you want displayed per page, you can choose the size of the models profile picture (you have 4 choices here) and you can also choose whether you want the profile picture or a live snapshot to be the default one.
Another thing that pleasantly surprised us was that the site is made available in 35 different languages. Yes, you read that correctly, I don’t think I’ve seen another site translated in so many languages.
Go on, get to the models!
Since you asked, models are pretty good looking, at least for a free cam site. Most of the online models (around 350 of them when we visited the site) are girls, but there were quite a few couples and some transsexual models online when we checked it out.
The majority of the cam girls are from Europe (Russia and Romania mostly), but we did find some North and South American models as well.
To put it simple, BongaCams has some of the hottest models we’ve seen on a free cam site. After talking to a couple of them we noticed they all spoke decent English and were pretty fun to deal with.
Sign up already, what’s holding you back?
Nothing, I’m on it!
The signup is basically a two step process. First of all, it’s free, all you need to do to become part of their community is to enter your username, email and password then verify your email address once you’ve submitted the previous details.
Watching the girls is free, the site works in a very similar way to chaturbate.com. They set a goal and once that’s reached, they perform live whatever their goal was. That’s called public chat on Bongacams.
To reach the goal, models receive tips from users. The more users tip, the faster the models reach their goal and give a show. It’s that simple.
For the more conservative of users, there are always group chats and private chats.
Group chat is basically a classic private chat that allows for more than one member to be in the room with the model at the same time. It’s a per minute cost.
Private chat on bongacams comes in two flavors: regular and full private chat. The difference is that if you choose to go into a full private chat, other members cannot spy on your live show, so the model might feel more comfortable to do whatever you asked her to do.
Is the video feed any good?
It’s really good, pretty much worked flawlessly during our testing of their site. Their models seem to understand that besides a good internet connection you also need a good webcam.
We also had no problems with using the audio or the full screen function (full screen is available only after you purchase credits).
Lay it on me, is it expensive?
As already mentioned, you need to tip or go into private chat to really enjoy the site as best and as fast as possible. But that’s not mandatory since most of the shows are done for free and provided you have a lot of patience, you can get a free one if you wait long enough.
Those of you who are in a hurry or want to have fun in a private sex chat need to buy tokens.
They start from $0.14 USD per token if you buy the smallest available package, which is $7.99 USD for 57 tokens. Tokens get cheaper as you buy the bigger packages, going as low as $0.11 USD per token.
Prices vary though, depending on the country you are from and so do the token packages.
Also dependent on your geographical location are the payment options. You can pay by credit card, PayPal, bank wire transfer, bitcoin and a few more.
When you’re watching a public chat room you may tip as much or less as you want, but once you go into either the group chat or the private chat, things change.
Group chat is 15 tokens per minute white the two different private chat options are 30 tokens per minute and 45 tokens per minute if you go for the full option.
This might be one of the aspects that we didn’t really like about bongacams. Although there are not any hidden fees or subscription, it might be hard to tell how much you’ve spending or how much you need to buy in order to have enough credits to spend.
Grade it for me, please!
We don’t do that, but if we did, we’d give it a really big score. We still don’t like a lot of things about bongacams. The annoying popups would be one thing, those things show up until you register and buy tokens.
We think it’s a really good alternative to chaturbate and although there aren’t as many models online on bonga cams, they are definitely worth checking out.
