Welcome to being alone. Given our current inability to get together in real life, where can you satisfy your… needs? …in the comfort of your own home?

Here are a few ideas. This is, as you’d suspect, NSFW.

As we enter almost a month of quarantine, folks have been taking to services like Zoom and Skype to keep in touch with friends and co-workers. But what about a more basic form of communication?

These are a few streaming sites that let you, the at-home user, stream yourself to people online, primarily for free. What this means in practice is up to you but in theory it means you can hang out naked on the Internet and meet like-minded people. We’ve posted these in order of “indie-ness” which means you’ll see real people versus pneumatic models.

ICanHazChat – This webcam chat forum is based on a few Reddit subs and one in particular is fairly popular. Expect to see plenty of flesh and feel free to cam up for your own benefit.

Chaturbate – Chaturbate is the grandaddy of cam sites and you can be up and streaming – or watching – in minutes.

MakeLoveNotPorn – Another service allows users to upload and sell private videos. A great opportunity to make a little quarantine cash.

CamSoda – This site is more focused on professional performers but you can stream as the mood strikes.

Flirt4Free – Want to make some money? This site will pay you to take your clothes off, assuming people will want to pay you.

Obviously play it safe out there and ensure you don’t give away and identifying info when you cam up. That said, why not share your sassy parts with the world?
