BongaCams.com is a live xxx website that will surely remain on the market for years to come by the looks of it. Although somewhat of a novice in the sex cam industry, it already has more than 10,000 registered models, so you’ll surely find something (i.e. someone) that suits you.
At first glance, BongaCams resembles a social platform – the profiles of hosts and customers are very detailed, with features resembling those of popular social networks. Community members can become friends, and message each other. The overall atmosphere is quite pleasant and laidback.
A fun feature at Bonga Cams are the weekly popularity contests – the Top 3, in which the winner gets $1000, and Top 15, in which the most popular model is awarded $500. Users can also select performers on the basis of these popularity lists.
The interface and the accompanying features, such as the Advanced Search option, are extremely simplified and user-friendly; they certainly go to great lengths to keep their customers (satisfied). That said, you’ll have no issue whatsoever with using the site on more than one device as the switch from the desktop version to the mobile one is seamless and smooth. Also, it is extremely important to note that the site can be used in 30 languages, which is the greatest number we’ve encountered so far. If you don’t find what you’re looking for in the FAQ section, the Customer Support can be reached 24/7 in a number of ways – via phone, Skype, email, and fill-in form.
There are two kinds of registered users i.e. members. To become a Basic Member, you need to enter a username, password and a valid email. You can create a user profile, take part in public chat sessions, and check out the hosts’ profiles and media galleries; but sadly, nothing more than that.
Once you enter your credit card information and purchase tokens, you get up to 5 tokens for free and are automatically upgraded to Gold Membership. You’ll be given a full screen view, a friend list (actually a favourites list), unlimited access to all chatrooms, and the ability to receive alerts and send messages to models.
The performers (about 400 of them online at any time of day) are very friendly and eager to please. Their profiles contain a lot of information and are full of animations, emojis, and other bubbly ‘accessories.’ Although most of them come from Russia and (Eastern) Europe, it seems that all of them speak satisfactory English. The tipping is done in bulk of 20, 50, 100 and 200 tokens.
Speaking of expenses, Bonga Cams is a token-based cam website. We’ve calculated that one minute can cost you anywhere from $3.50 up to $7 on average, so that’s a huge price range if there ever was one. There is, however, a handy sidebar that shows how many tokens you have left, so you’ll be able to keep an eye on those expenses.
The tokens are bought in batches of 15 up to 835 tokens, which cost from $2.50 up to $79. This means that the price of an individual token can be anywhere from less than 1 cent up to almost 20 cents, depending on the package you decide to purchase. The users are also given the option of purchasing extra tokens with text messages (in this case, 10 tokens are charged $1.92) and bank transfers ($50 for a package of 555 tokens).
When it comes to chat modes, there are three basic ones: apart from the standard Group Chat (15 tokens/minute), Private Mode (30 tokens/minute) and Full Private Chat (45 tokens/minute), there’s also the Spy Mode that gives you a blurred preview of the selected chatroom at 7 tokens per minute. The standard Free Chat session is free of charge, but you won’t get to see much as the models usually don’t get ‘carried away’ in this chat mode.
BongaCams will also grant you up to 5 bonus tokens when you complete your first purchase. There’s also the Invite Your Friends option – if you invite new people to the site and they spend money while on it, you win bonus tokens. Extra tokens are also given to you if you end up on the top 5 list of biggest spenders of the day; number one spender is awarded as many as 200 bonus tokens!
With an interface as perky and attractive as its gorgeous models, we’re certain that Bonga Cams will take the lead in years to come. This is an adult cam site for the next generation of users who want to experience equal amount of lightweight fun for the pleasure they get from hot webcam shows.
