IMLive.com is one of the oldest, largest, and popular webcam sites. All that longevity means they know how to make sure members are kept entertained and coming back for more.
Even if you’re new to the idea of watching hot sex live online, you’ve probably heard of IMLive.com. Founded in 2002, it’s got more than 66 million members (also known as guests) and 80,000 registered hosts. If you’re counting, that means you have 80,000 different options to find someone – or multiple someones who can and will perform for and chat with you online.

Indulge in your favorite fetish. Talk to someone sexy. Watch two or more people have a good time together. IMLive.com lets you do it all from the privacy of your own computer or mobile device. That’s right, you can have your favorite show and favorite host in your pocket. (Sounds kind of kinky, doesn’t it?) While live webcam shows are the default method of pleasure on IMLive, uploaded videos, previously recorded live shows, and “best of” videos are all available for viewing and self pleasure.
Joining IMLive.com is ridiculously easy. All you need a valid email for site verification. You’ll choose your screen name and password upon registration. While you can choose any name that suits you, you cannot use someone else’s name or profanities in your screen name. Choose wisely as this is how you’ll be known to hosts throughout IMLive.com.

As you move up in membership, based on how many credit purchases you make, you’ll get deeper discounts to buy credits and to join the Discount Club offered by a particular host. Joining gives you deep discounts on live and recorded chats with hosts you love. The more money you spend, the farther your money goes. It’ll be like being a kid in a candy store…if by “kid” you mean legal adult and by “candy” you mean naked, sexy, hot, kinky, and/or deliciously naughty cam hosts. Which is exactly what we mean.
Once you’ve joined and logged in, IMLive.com lets you scroll through a feed like page and find whoever catches your eye. The default view looks a bit like scrolling through a naked, hot, raunchy social media feed – without the politics or the shouting. Which automatically makes it better.
