MyFreeCams.com (MFC) is a website providing live webcam performances by female models, typically featuring nudity and sexual activity often ranging from striptease and dirty talk to masturbation with sex toys.

History[edit]

MFC was launched in 2004,[1][2] and by 2010 was described by industry group XBIZ as "one of the world's largest adult webcam communities."[3] It was reported as having more than 100,000 models and more than five million members.[3] CNBC reported the opinion of an adult industry talent agent that models on the site can make "between $75,000 and $100,000 per month,"[4] leading some established porn stars into becoming webcam models.[4] In 2014 it was reported to be "the 344th most visited site on the internet."[2]

Concept[edit]

MFC is used mostly by amateur webcam models, or camgirls, who earn money for their performances on the site.[5] Customers of the site can purchase virtual tokens, which can be used to tip performers or watch private shows.[6] Customers can use text based live chat to talk to each other or in each performer's channel. The performers use a webcam and microphone to broadcast live video and audio to their channel. Both members and performers can send private messages and mail to each other.[7]

The top 100 earning performers each month receive additional cash prizes and recognition in the Miss MyFreeCams competition.[8]
