In our XCams review, we take a look at what separates this European platform from other top adult cam sites.

Does XCams provide the best value private shows? Is it a good site for models?

Let’s get started!

What is XCams?

Launched over a decade ago, XCams is a European cam site offering a truly international selection of models.

Headquartered in Switzerland, the majority of models are French or English speakers and largely covers Western Europe.

However you can find some Eastern, Southern and Northern Europenas along with a handful of Asian, Latina and Middle Eastern ladies.

The site offers some free cam shows but many are premium meaning you will have to pay to participate.

However, most offer free chat in public sessions right from the off so you can get a taste of what they are about before you commit to a Private or VIP show.

XCams is pretty popular within its home territories right across Europe but also picks up some good international traffic from those customers who want to experience some Continental flair.

However, much of its traffic comes from local countries with Germany, Switzerland, France and Belgium accounting for almost around 80% of visitors.

What’s Special About XCams?

The main sales pitch of XCams is the fact that it is a truly European offering and its models are mostly bilingual with customers being able to find broadcasts available in a range of languages, including:

  • French
  • English
  • Spanish
  • Dutch
  • German
  • Italian

Not only do the models speak multiple languages but the site itself is also available in different languages.

XCams offers a good choice of models who have interactive, tip-operated sex toys as well as HD broadcasts.

In fact, around 80% of the shows you can watch are available in super high-quality resolution.

When you first land on the site you will be presented with a board of thumbnails, each with a still image taken from the current live stream which does give you an indication of what each channel is about before you click to enter their room.

You can filter this board down using some pre-set choices on the main menu which includes popular choices like Brunette, Blonde and Redhead as well as Small Tits, Big Tits and XL.

Or, if you have something (or someone) specific in mind, there is also the option of a keyword search or advanced search which gives you selections from:

  • Age (use the slider to choose a range from 18 to 60+)
  • Origin (European, Asian, Latino, African, Arab etc.)
  • Hair (Brown, Black, Red, Blonde)
  • Cupsize (A-B, C-D, E-F)
  • Figure (S, M, L or XL)
  • Extras (HD, Piercings, Tattoos, Fetish, BDSM etc.)

Shows on XCams

Most models on XCams are available for free adult chat but they don’t get up to much unless you are prepared to show them the color of your money. This can be done using the Tip function or by:

  • Activating their interactive sex-toy
  • Going Private
  • Going VIP

The cost of this varies by model but, typically, costs:

  • 5-10 credits per 10s of operation – Interactive sex-toys
  • 5-10 credits per minute – Private Shows
  • 10-20 credits per minute – VIP Shows

Private shows allow guests to turn on their own webcams and VIP shows will let you use your microphone and/or webcam.

Tips are offered on a pre-set scale of 25, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 credits or you can choose a virtual ‘gift’ from a menu which includes:

  • Cunnilingus – 75 Credits
  • Whip – 10 Credits
  • Chocolates – 3 Credits
  • Week in the Maldives – 80 Credits
  • Porsche 911 – 900 Credits
  • Spanking – 35 Credits

Bear in mind that some models have an automatic 15-second preview before guests must pay to participate.

Models on XCams

The site has more than 60,000 registered models, of which, around 300-400 are broadcasting at any one time.

xcams shows reviews

There is no specific ‘niche’ but instead XCams caters to a wide range of mainstream categories and has a mix of female, trans and couples broadcasting on its platform. 

Most solo female models are aged between 18 and 25 but they also have a decent selection of mature women aged 40+.

Many of their models have been nominated for Adult Webcam Awards including:

  • WafWaf – Best Smoking Fetish Cam Show
  • xxCarmel – Best Live Masturbation Show
  • Mallena – Top Part-Time Live Webcam Model & Best Live Masturbation Show

What you don’t get on XCams is a whole load of ‘bumpf’ and there are no extensive profiles to browse through with rules, wishlists and personal information.

You could view this as a negative as many cam site audiences prefer to know more about their models but for us it was quite a refreshing break to just simply chat with these models without all of that detail.

The fact that all chats launch in (near) full-screen mode also helps with the idea of jumping straight into the action; no ads or pop-ups, or anything to distract from the model you have chosen.

What Does XCams Cost?

You can create a free user account with XCams and this will give you access to some useful features including being able to register a username and save the details of any free chats plus bookmark your favorite models.

However, if you want to get into private chats and VIP shows or tip any of the models then you will, of course, need to load up your account with tokens.

The site adapts its currency depending on where you are accessing it from and the default (as you’d expect) is Euros.

The cost of credits therefore depends on how you are buying them and in what quantities as bulk purchases are available at discounts.

Roughly though, each credit will cost you €0.20 to €0.30 (approximately $0.23 to $0.35). This means that the cost of private shows is the equivalent of:

  • €1-€2/min ($1.15-$2.30) – Private Shows
  • €2-€3/min ($2.30-$3.45) – VIP Shows

This is fairly cheap by industry average, with lower prices than LiveJasmin, Flirt4Free and Streamate, but higher prices than IMLive and Chaturbate.

Available to buy in bundles of 40 to 1,000 credits you will get more value if you buy in bulk.

Payment for credits can be made using all major credit and debit cards as well via your mobile phone, Bitcoin, Skrill and PayPal.

There are free cam tokens available for new customers with our latest estimate putting the value of their introductory offer at roughly $6.75.

XCams Review: The Best Euro Cam Site?

The design of the XCams site is pretty slick and offers a fast way to get started camming and is particularly useful for anyone who is new to this kind of online entertainment.

Each show launches in (near) full screen mode without any extraneous detail about what models want for breakfast or what rules they have in chat and things they like doing.

Instead, you can just start chatting.

The mobile version of the site is also pretty good and offers clear audio and video with full screen features.

However, not much comes for free here and unlike sites such as Cam Soda or Strip Chat you really do need to pay to go private if you want your chat host to perform for you.

But this isn’t expensive and compared to many cam sites on the market, you can get a reasonable 10-15 minutes of show time for under $20.

For a taste of truly European cam models, we do think that XCams is one of the best around. It compares favourably with other Euro rivals, including BongaCams and Cam4.

It’s easy to lose track of time simply browsing through the varied selection of Dutch, French and German girls here who definitely break the mould if you are used to the more ‘traditional’ North American cam girls.

review of

There is also a good selection of mature ladies who aren’t so much MILFs or cougars but genuine gray haired ladies who fancy themselves as cammers.

We stumbled across one or two foul-mouthed Grandmas who would strike fear into any seasoned submissive and think XCams could definitely market these ladies in the fetish markets.

Overall, this site won’t be a standard go-to for many audiences but certainly should be for anyone who is tired of the cookie-cuttter girls they can find on most cam sites.

So, enjoy, or as they say in the Netherlands, genieten!
