Although it’s available, cam girls no longer earn most of their income from private chats, they earn it during the free chat by having members tip them.
Any registered member can tip them and there’s no limit to the amount of tokens(virtual coins used to tip the cam girls. Most models have what you might call a “goal” or a status.
Value of the token depends on each site, but on Chaturbate for example, it starts at around .10 USD per token) one can tip. Usually the goal is to reach a certain amount of tokens.
Private chat is the way to go here, if you can afford it. Depends on the site and the girl you’re looking to hook up with, but it’s usually anywhere between $0.99 USD and $4.99 USD per minute.
That would make an average cam session cost about $3 USD per minute.
If each of those members tip 1 token, she’d reach the goal in no time and everyone in the room would get to see her naked, including guests.
So why become a member if you can watch the live sex show for free?
As with everything today, the more we develop technologically the better the service gets.
