Looking for a live cam site that offers more than just the basic streaming services?
CamSoda is a fresh cam site with an energetic appeal that offers a youthful take on the world of live streaming.
Launched in 2014 the company is creative with its advertising and brings a sense of humour to its brand which is reflected in the kinds of girls you can cam with. The site has enjoyed stunning growth over the last couple of years, placing it right at the top of our adult cam site rankings.
CamSoda has free broadcasts where the models rely mostly on tipping. This means you can pool your resources with other visitors to enjoy some banging group shows.
And, if you want something a little more intimate, there is always the option of paying for a one-to-one private show.
In this CamSoda review, we take a look at the good, bad and ugly on one of the world’s fastest growing adult cam sites. Is it worth buying tokens? What do models think of Cam Soda?
What is CamSoda?
CamSoda is a live streaming web service where adult models can broadcast both for free and to paying audiences.
The site was launched in 2014 and has been steadily climbing the ranks of top cam sites. It now boasts traffic in the region of 20 million hits per month.
Whilst this is still far short of the top cam site in the world (Chaturbate holds this title with 340 million+ hits), it is catching up fast.
In many ways, CamSoda improves on the formula that made Chaturbate so popular in the first place.
There is a huge amount of free content, and an interface that delivers a smooth and binge-worthy user experience.

What’s Special About CamSoda?
Whilst the basic offerings at CamSoda are similar to those of the competition, the brand has been built on its cheeky and fresh approach to the industry.
From marketing its own silly inventions and staging fake news, to gaining media attention by surfing the waves of popular stories, they are never far from the limelight.
The company famously managed to turn the coronavirus pandemic to their advantage, peddling free cam shows to a world population crippled by lockdowns.
In February 2020, CamSoda offered isolated passengers onboard quarantined cruise ships in Asia free access to its platform.
We’re not such how many takers they received, but it certainly gained a lot of coverage in the press!
And, as recently as June 2020, CamSoda was in the media spotlight again over news of its plans to deploy Covid-Safe pop-up studios to allow models to continue working during the pandemic!
Other innovations and media campaigns which have taken off during the global outbreak include The Semen Zapper – a device to immediately sanitize semen as it exits the body using UV technology.
All being said, the company behind CamSoda takes marketing very seriously even if the marketing itself is mostly tongue-in-cheek which is why the site is now ranked in the top 200 adult websites worldwide.
And that’s not the only thing that sets this platform aside from the competition.
CamSoda offers cutting edge technology and innovation, high rates of pay for its models and excellent quality control of its streaming.
So, let’s take a closer look at the site itself and what the models are offering.
Models on CamSoda
CamSoda offers live cam broadcasting for female, male, trans and couples; however the vast majority of performers on this platform are female with most of the performers being located in Europe.
There is also a good range of models from the United States and Asia.
As well as amateur performers, CamSoda also has a very decent selection of porn stars on their books including Sabrina Nichole, Tori Black, Brandi Love and Dani Daniels.
As well as live cam streaming from independent models and top adult stars broadcasting from their own homes, CamSoda operates its own studio which streams virtual reality live sex shows.
Not many rival sites offer VR cams, with StripChat being one of the rare exceptions.

The most popular channels being broadcast on CamSoda are:
- Latina Cams
- MILF Cams
- Teen Cams
- Ebony Cams
- Nude in Public
- Real Life Cams
This gives you some sense of the diversity on offer here. Dig under the surface and you can expect a whole lot more with models of all shapes, sizes and experience.
From mature MILFs and curvy cougars to young newcomers and even professional adult movie stars.
Many channels come with interactive sex toys which can be controlled using your tips so you can really get more involved as an audience member.
Models offer a range of shows from public performances to more intimate one-to-one private cam sessions.
And, for the voyeurs among you, you can even pay to watch these private shows as a spy.
Other ways to get involved with the models more intimately include cam2cam sessions where you can pay extra for your host to tune in to your own webcam performance.
Maybe you want them to give you jerk off instructions as you beat the meat or suffer some humiliating insults from a femdom as she pokes fun at your junk?
Whatever you are into, the chances are that there is a model on CamSoda who can float your boat.
For many cam models, live streaming is only part of the services they can offer their fans.
With the launch of dozens of adult content sales and subscription sites, it was only a matter of time before cam sites starting offering similar services.
With CamSoda Fans, audiences can not only watch a live stream of their favorite performers but also purchase downloadable content and become a part of an exclusive community as a subscribing fan.
Premium subscription gives you behind-the-scenes access to a whole host of CamSoda stars and allows you to interact directly with content creators.
CamSoda Labs: The Power of Marketing
CamSoda has a unique way of marketing its services and has created its very own product innovations team under the name CamSoda Labs.
Offering up wild and wacky inventions that cause a huge stir, the resulting media madness achieves the main aim of this spin off; promotion.
Over the last six years the company has ‘launched’ patents for new technology as diverse as:
- The RubGrub was a vibrator which ordered you a pizza as soon as you reached orgasm pizza. By adding a little button at the base of this sex toy you could satisfy the post-cum munchies as part of your self-love routine.
- The OhRama Sensory Mask was a type of VR headset which incorporated smell as part of its immersive experience by delivering the scent of panties and private parts.
- Penis Recognition Technology (PRT) was a way to more securely log in to the CamSoda website using Dick-ometrics.
- The O-Seat was a saddle for your bicycle which incorporate a secret compartment for a sex toy.
- And CockBlockChain was CamSoda Lab’s own version of a cryptocurrency which was linked to the value of dick pics trading on an exchange.
Although amusing, these ‘products’ aren’t that useful but the company’s offering of CamSodaLive most certainly is.
Another more SFW way to use their platform and tech to live stream events, CamSoda has been broadcasting everything from stand-up comedy and concerts to sporting events.
The service has also been offered to pornstars and its own models to stream other types of adult content including Voyeur Cams.
Known as LifeStream, these 24/7 broadcasts are the ultimate in spycams and give audiences the chance to see models doing more than just ‘perform’ for an audience.
Fans can tune in day or night to watch their favorite models simply going about their daily lives.
CamSoda and Innovative Technology
Despite the fact that all of these products are all a bit of fun, CamSoda actually does have a reputation in the industry for being innovative with its technology.
Over the last six years, they have been one of the pioneers of 360 degree VR live streaming as well as 3D holographic porn.
From a company who so shamelessly invests in self-promotion, you would expect nothing less than a store selling merchandise for its own brand and that’s exactly what you get with CamSoda Gear.
An online enterprise where models and fans can purchase everything from swimwear, hoodies and crop tops to mugs, pillows and thongs all featuring the CamSoda logo.
Topically, you can even pick up a CamSoda branded face covering/neck gaiter to help keep you Covid-safe!
What Does CamSoda Cost?
CamSoda is free to join which allows you to watch the public broadcasts of any model who is streaming until she heads into a private chat.
Visitors can fully interact with models without spending a dime but unless you tip or pay for a private performance (or if a girl is really bored) then you won’t get much attention until you start spending tokens.
You can tip whatever you like to start the ball rolling and this will get the attention of most girls but what you are really looking for is to get her full attention.
You can do this by taking control of her interactive sex toy and tipping to give her a real buzz.
Available to purchase in bundles, the cost of premium services depends on the girls themselves but can range from 50 for $5.99 to 1,205 for $99.99.
The price of interaction depends on the model and most publish their individual tips menus which will be along the lines of:
- 200 Tokens for some finger in the ass play
- 100 Tokens to flash her pussy
- 150 Tokens for 60 seconds of Lovense control
- 500 Tokens to buy access to WhatsApp
The price of videos, pics and subscriptions are all set individually as are ticket shows.
However, the default for private shows is 30 tokens per minute and spy shows are charged at around 12 tokens per minute.
Most models work towards a tip goal in their public shows so that everyone can benefit from, and contribute to, the show.
You can also upgrade your account to premium which offers some more features including being able to send tips/messages anonymously, private messages the models and view multiple chat rooms.
A premium membership starts at around $19.95 per month and includes 200 free tokens.
CamSoda For Models
Models earn $0.05 for every token they earn on the main camming platform, plus they get to keep 80% of all fan subscriptions and tips generated through the CamSoda Fans platform.
This is a fairly generous arrangement compared to other more established cam platforms.
Payments are paid weekly with a minimum threshold of $20.
Follow CamSoda on Social Media
Most corporate social media accounts can be pretty dull to follow but CamSoda is one of those rare exceptions where the content being posted is not only useful but, often, highly entertaining.
Along with news of IG takeovers by some of the best current cam stars plus details of those crazy inventions, you can also find everything from videos of food fights to stripper competitions pitting robots against humans!
They are well worth a follow on any (or all) of their many social media accounts:
Of course, you can also stay up to date with the companies latest news and innovations via their equally as entertaining blog.
CamSoda Review: Best Modern Take On A Cam Site?
As an audience member on CamSoda, you will either love or hate the design and ethos of this platform.
It’s young, fresh and playful with a fizzy kind of energy that most of the models seem to exude.
With its bright and colorful menus, slick design and abundance of hot girls, it just makes you want to spend, spend, spend.
Which, for the girls, is a great thing and we enjoy a site that has a party atmosphere.
For some, however, a party may not be what they are looking for.
CamSoda celebrates a community spirit and offering free public access across its channels and if you are looking for a more exclusive way to interact with your cam models then you may find that this isn’t the site for you.
Yes, you can still pay for private cam sessions but, in general, the models here are looking to perform to as many people as possible.
This can either be in a ticketed show or just to achieve a tip goal in public.
The benefit of all this is that everyone gets to benefit from the generosity of the many.
This means that plenty of explicit action can be enjoyed on a modest budget as long as you are pooling together for the end-goal.
What we love most about CamSoda is the numerous ways you can enjoy XXX content across their site; from traditional cams to downloadable adult content, 24/7 life streaming and voyeur cams to special events and porn shows, its a non-stop, one-stop shop for all your NSFW fun.
We get the sense that the girls who work on CamSoda enjoy what they do and the top performers are obviously happy with what they are earning as most stick around on the site for some time.
With the added flexibility of being able to monetize their content and gain paid subscribers through the fan platform, there are lots of ways to make money with CamSoda.
Overall, we give CamSoda an effervescent thumbs up; this is one can of soda you won’t regret opening.
