Video Chat Rooms are open 24/7 for you to log on and get off live with Squirt.org members from around the world. We encourage you to check out the different rooms, chat with members, and turn on your camera if you’re looking to show yourself off!

Welcome to the Video Chat Rooms! We want you to enjoy yourself, but Chat Room conduct should be guided by common sense & basic etiquette.

  1. Don't post, promote, or distribute content that is illegal.
  2. Don't harass or threaten another user.
  3. Don't disrupt the flow of chat in chat rooms with abusiveness, pressing one key repeatedly or inputting large streams of text, so the screen goes by too fast to read, etc.

This is online vandalism, and it ruins the experience for others.
