Short Review:

Adult Cams is an unusual live web cam site which charges a monthly recurring membership, yet includes no live cam shows in that fee. What you're actually buying with your membership here at Adult Cams is access to a network of 30 hardcore porn sites which just happens to have a live cam up-sell included in the members' area. Confused? So was I, so let's get inside and take a closer look.

Content:

Adult Cams is obviously meant to be a live web cam site, but things aren't exactly what they seem here. Unlike most live cam sites which charge a per minute fee, Adult Cams charges a regular monthly membership fee of nearly $30 per month. This fee does not include any live cam time whatsoever, but it does include access to an entire network of 30 sites.

The site offered with your Adult Cams membership cover a wide variety of smutty categories and the package isn't exactly a bad deal, but I was very put off by the fact that the live cam aspect of the site is essentially just a third-party upsell. Adult Cam itself does not have any live performers. In order to access live cam shows, you must visit a third-party site, register a separate account with that site, and pay a per-minute fee for the shows. Since the site that actually provides the live cam shows is free to join anyway, the monthly membership fee for Adult Cams almost seems like a surcharge.

If you want to join up with Adult Cams and get access to these 30 sites then by all means go ahead and do so, but if you are interested only in live cam entertainment, then check out our review of Cams.com, the site which actually provides the live cam shows here. It may be a better deal to simply join that site directly. The 30 site package seems to be virtually identical to that offered by the Pink Visual Pass, which has also been reviewed by the staff here at Review Porn.

Features & Navigation:

Adult Cams looks like your typical live cam site from the outside, and the only hint at its rather unusual a membership set up is the list of included bonus sites found near the bottom of the tour pages. There's really nothing here to let potential members know that the monthly membership fee does not include any actual live web cam entertainment.

The sites which are included in your Adult Cams membership are all listed on the main members page. Each site has its own section with a list of scenes spanning many pages. In general, the majority of each site collection is not downloadable and is offered only for streaming. For each site, you can choose to narrow the collection to include only those scenes which are available for download and at the higher of the available quality levels. A search box allows you to search for keywords among the network as a whole, and there's also a model menu so that you can select your favorite babe. Videos and photos for each scene are accessible on the same page. Most of these scenes do come with a set of photos which can be viewed in a thumbnail gallery or downloaded in a ZIP file, and video files come in WMV format for download or Flash format for streaming.

Conclusion:

As far as I can tell, there is absolutely no benefit to joining Adult Cans when it comes to being able to access live cam shows. The members' area page displays a listing of models, but those models don't actually seem to be available to chat with and you must visit a third-party websites to gain access to any live cam chats at all. Overall I thought this one was poorly thought out and not a particularly good value for live cam fans.
