Chaturbate Live Cam Site

Chaturbate is a pornographic website that features live webcam performances by individual webcam models and couples, generally including nudity and sexual behavior ranging from striptease and erotica to more explicit sexual actions such as masturbation with sex toys.

Female cams, male cams, couple cams, transgender cams, private shows, and spy shows are the six categories of the site. The gender-specific categories are free to see, but private shows need payment. Spy shows are private performances in which the audience does not engage, therefore they are less expensive to see than private shows. As of April 2022, Chaturbate was the 57th most visited website worldwide and the sixth most visited pornographic website.

Chaturbate Concept

The term "chaturbate" is a combination of "chat" and "masturbate." The audience is permitted to watch for free (with the exception of private events), but "tips" are required to see specific sex acts.

Models are able to synchronize remote-controlled vibrators and other sex toys so that they are triggered when "tipped" and the frequencies are impacted by the amount of "tips" offered, with the purpose of "customers paying to attempt to give [the models] an orgasm." There are popular chat rooms with up to 20,000 concurrent users and more than 500,000 subscribers. This is due in part to the "follow" option, which notifies viewers when the model is live.

Another feature of the site's inner workings is the employment of "mods" (short for "moderators"), who are volunteer users who ensure that broadcasts adhere to Chaturbate's policies, such as no violence and no underage models.

As shown by Projekt Melody, an artificial intelligence "cam lady" with around 20,000 followers, models need not be human. Chaturbate did, however, ask the operator to provide proof of age.

The site generates income by deducting between 40% and 50% of the model's profits. The audience earns income for Chaturbate by purchasing tokens using credit cards. Each Chaturbate token is worth $0.05, and models must earn at least $50.00 in order to be paid. Tokens cost around $0.10 per viewer, depending on the quantity purchased in a single transaction.

In 2016, Chaturbate was the presenting sponsor of the 33rd AVN Awards and an exhibitor at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in both 2016 and 2017. In 2020, the site collaborated with indie Canadian filmmakers Ethan Cole and Daniel AM Rosenberg to create the 10-episode YouTube video series Cam Girlfriend.
