Concepts of Webcamming 

The site: CameraLux is a free to use adult webcam site that offers users – registered and guest alike – the chance to watch real webcam stars performing in a variety of adults-only live chat shows.

The Models : Camgirl (Cam-girl, chat model, or cam-whore) is an Internet term for women who are featured on webcams. The word is used for women who earn money by broadcasting, entertaining, and performing on webcams either from homes or studios.

What is camming and what does it take to be a webcam model? If you’re checking this out, you might have an idea of what it entails and probably want to know more. Read on!

The Process : Camming or (web camming) is signing up on an adult site like CameraLux and broadcasting your webcam while usually doing something sexual, like teasing, stripping, full-on masturbating and getting tipped in tokens by those who watch you. However, there is SO much more to it than that! You can even be a non-nude model, if that’s what you want. There is a vast amount and variety of cam sites out there right now and they all have their own “culture”, rules, and things that differentiate them. 


The CameraLux opening page of the site is welcoming and warm. Always a good start.

The left hand column is dedicated to allowing users the opportunity to narrow down the available free cams that they can view. The filter parameters are based around adult chat preferences in terms of body type, age, appearance and features of their specialties. The list is extensive and caters to almost all of the common kinks that people would expect to find on an adult entertainment site. Alongside each filter option the site also tells users exactly how many active online adult webcams there are within that specific category.

User can choose between genders, categories and Filters to finetune his/her search.

Just What Sort of Adult Chat Fun Does CameraLux Cams Offer

An important question that has to be asked of any web cam site is: ‘what do they have to offer me?’

With thousands of active cam members and with approximately 1000 live cams at any one time, there are lots to choose from. The spread across the available filters ranges from double to triple digits, and there is always someone for everyone. The free chat is restricted only by the models themselves. They are able to show or not show what they want or feel comfortable with. Remember that the main aim is to entice members into paid private shows, so do not expect full on shows for free. After all, the adult chat cam stars at CameraLux need to earn their money.

Each of the models offer a variety of shows.

  • Free Chat
  • Private Chat – one on one paid chat that allows users personal time with the models. What happens within private chat is strictly up to the model. There are certain services that some will provide that others will not. It is generally advised to understand these limits and boundaries before a private show starts.
  • Voyeur Shows – these are shows run at approximately one third of the private show costs for the model, and allow you to watch another members private show with the model. You cannot talk, only watch as the fun happens before your eyes. Not all shows or models allow this, but it is a popular feature when available.
  • Group Shows require three or more members and are a low cost version of a private show. The same rules apply, only the model's attention is shared between all users. Users can leave as they like, and the show will end once all users have been satisfied and ended their link to the group performance.
