BongaCams is an adult live streaming platform that features content made by webcam models, couples, and camboys. Typical shows include erotic performances that generally involve nudity and provocative yet engaging activities for the viewers; ranging from teasing, stripping, erotic chatting to masturbation with sex toys. All site visitors are able to join online chat rooms, while models earn money by hosting private shows and getting tips from registered users.

Currently, BongaCams is one of the largest adult live streaming platforms in Europe and is ranked as 33rd most popular website in the world by Alexa (October 2021). On a global scale, the platform competes with the U.S based platform: Chaturbate.

BongaCash (affiliate program) and BongaModels (model platform) are part of BongaCams community.
