Cam Sites VS Porn Sites – What’s the Difference?

We know the adult industry takes many forms but one of many questions seem to fall on the categorisation of what does or does not make something ‘porn’ or the differences in between. It’s fair to say a huge amount of you won’t care for the answer, as long as it’s ticking all your boxes and helping you achieve the end goal.

So take these two different mediums for example, they both have a huge commonality – they are there to please you. And they do. They both do the job well. Your preference is the key though and there’s a lot to be said about the both of them. I mean hell it’s 2017, you have so many options these days!

  1.  Break it down

    What are these two types in a nut shell?

    Porn site – An extensive collection of videos or images, from pros to amateurs, free sites to paid sites. The content is there ready for you at your beck and call.

    Webcam site – An extensive collection of models, live, for you to interact with and get in on the action.

    Their outcomes? Your pleasure. Let’s have a look at the nitty gritty details!

  2.   The good ‘old fashioned’ porn sites

    They’ve been around for years and have grown to be the go to when considering porn, they are the most widely talked about internet forum for the freaky deaky. Before that of course, there were the magazines but they were quickly overridden once the internet met its fame and people discovered how to record and upload videos. They were pretty awful to start with until the graphics got better and technology advanced, even to the point where mobiles were more compatible with that type of viewing.

    Features ? There’s a lot of them!

    • Most of the sites were founded several years ago so the amount of content has grown, there are literally millions of videos for you look at.
    • The content is pre recorded so you can go back to it time and time again. Some sites even let you make lists or a play list.
    • User generated content – while not all of the content is of good quality in it’s imagery, most of the videos are made by actual individuals who have a passion for sex and don’t do it as a living. This can be good and bad, it means you get the realism and see actual couples but the pros are the ones that give you the ‘money’ shots and are more reliable with their content. Either way, there’s a lot to look at.
    • Community – Most sites allow users to comment on the videos thread and interact with other users. You can also rate the videos which gives them a ranking, helpful to other users who just want the cream of the crop.
    • Mainly free – most sites are free and you don’t have to sign up for the content. However if you are looking for something in particular or something a bit taboo, you can expect to have to pay for that.
    • Larger categories – I’m not just talking about the models here, I’m talking about the type of porn. When most people think about porn they think stereotypically about a man and a woman or lesbians/gay men but other forms such as CGI monster porn and special characters such as Disney princesses etc have taken the industry by storm. So in terms of pleasing fetishes and individual kinks, the porn sites certainly have the upper hand there which makes them more versatile.
  3.    The Live Webcam Sites

    This pretty much does what it was on the tin but they are becoming extremely popular, especially with the rise in virtual reality technology. You remember the film Demolition Man? Set in the future where they have sex through machines that stimulate their brains and thus their organs, deemed much safer and cleaner than actual human to human contact – yeah that’s us in 30 years time. In fact there will come a day where we only swap fluids for breeding purposes – watch this space!

    Features:

    • They are live. This is both good and bad, good because when you have them in front of you, that’s real time and they are responding. However it doesn’t mean they will be there all of the time so if you like a particular model, you better have a back-up strategy for when she’s awol. Everyone has a night off now and again.
    • The majority are free to join and some you can view quite a lot even just as a guest. You won’t be able to chat but who needs words when pictures say so much more!
    • A big pro to this is the interaction, you can talk to them, tip them, practically pay to see them do things and then get them in a private session to do whatever you want. As long as you have the money for the tokens, the night is young and the entertainment is just getting started. So it is much more of a pay to play environment but the rewards are worth it if that is what you need.
    • Sign up bonuses – many sites give you rewards for signing up and will give you more rewards for your loyalty. It’s much more than just a site, it’s a brand and a culture.
    • Realtime interaction toys – As well as the normal chatting and viewing, most sites now have the interactive toys as well, you can literally make them climax or at least give them a helping hand. There are also the reverse type toys as well where they can give the viewer pleasure by connected devices, it’s not as common yet but the industry is rapidly shifting that way.
    • There are hundreds, sometimes thousands of models to choose from and many cover an array of fetishes.
    • There are also men on cams, couples (straight and gay), group sex, friends, transgender etc, so your choices are well covered.
  4.    Overview

    The main difference between the two are you get really early on is the availability of the content. While traditional porn sites are recorded media, Webcam sites offer a live ‘now’ aspect so you are seeing the content first hand as it happens. Also just viewing like a voyeur and viewing as a contributor are worlds apart. I can view a porn video as many times as I like but on a cam site I can ask for something to be done and tip to make is so, I can tell them to do something differently which helps them at the same time, I can tip them and watch them react to it. It’s a whole other level of reciprocation that you can’t get from the traditional content sites. As technology grows, so do we and we are always searching for that ‘real’ experience and cam sites are leaps and bounds into that for us.

    If I had to pick one? Well I like reliable and I like being able to pause a video when I want but once you’ve had a taste of live action TV where you set the standards and have your needs met, it’s hard to go back because in comparison it all seems boring after that. Cam sites have a lot more to offer and will continue to grow with us.
