If you’ve frequented cam websites to find juicy cam girls doing their thang for the camera, there’s a big chance you’ve been too distracted to consider what her life is really all about! Camming is an amazing subversion of porn, and it brings an element of ‘live nude ladies’ to the experience. As much as it’s a carnival with tons of bells and whistles, it’s also a business. For cam girls, the idea of camming is something that brings forth financial independence and the ability to work on your own schedule.
Let’s get into the basics of camming
Ok, you probably know what camming is, but let’s break it down a little bit. Camming is where guys like you pay to watch a livestream show that a sex worker puts on. There are also opportunities to video chat one-on-one with your dream cam girl for a bit of extra cash, which is like any porn lover’s dream. But, when it comes to the livestream, you are watching a beautiful cam girl do some amazing sexual things for the camera while you remain in a group chat with her and the other viewers. When it comes to what exactly is being displayed on the camera, it can come down to so many different types of things…
Masturbate with their hands
As their fans what they want to see
Eat sexy foods
Get up close and personal with the camera
Invite friends on occasionally
Sexual domination exercises
Use a vibrator
Wear sexy costumes
Cater to their viewer’s ultimate fantasies
And so, so much more…
The possibilities of what you can see on a cam site are pretty much endless. It’s like a cam girl’s own sexy live reality TV show where she is the actress, director, camera girl, and producer! It can be really fun for a cam girl and quite liberating as she is essentially the creative director of the entire operation. Everything is totally in her control. And, while it’s fun, it is a business at the end of the day.
The business of camming
A cam girl can come up with her own content, schedule, and business model. But, there’s a pretty clear one that most models follow and it goes a little something like this: Taking the morning to update her profile. Staying relevant to her fanbase is perhaps the most important aspect of being a camgirl. Some fans become pretty ruthless and expect the world out of cam girls, so they’ve got to truly act like it is a business to make money, meaning they need new, relevant sexy content on a daily basis. Remaining logged on for the better half of the day. The time at which a cam girl logs on is up to her, but it’s smart to consider when people are online the most often and to consider different time zones. For some girls, this is a daytime job, and for other cam girls, it gets raunchy at night. Evening actresses are often attracted to the night because they are single moms or have a different job during the day. While they are logged in, they can take requests for their clients. The work is short for successful cam girls, making up to 1K per day for about 4 hours of straight streaming. However, they do work on the content, staying sexy (AKA going to the gym), getting outfits together, and getting dolled up on the off-hours. So, it does tend to end up working out to being a full-time job.
Some girls come up with gameplans for the day or plan fun events. Most cam girls operate on a weekly schedule which can consist of things like masturbation Mondays or tickle Tuesdays. It’s up to the girl herself what her content ends up being and it often comes down to what she enjoys doing and what her fans enjoy.
Let’s talk money
The amount of money a cam girl can make is in the six-figures-per-year range. Especially successful cam girls can make even more. That money comes from subscribers, private shows, donations, and money for taking fan requests during live shows. Men love to watch cam girls because it’s a relatively new version of porn that feels much more intimate.
Like any job at which there is either sex work involved or displaying your intimate moments in the public eye, there’s a downside. For one, to be a successful cam girl, you must accept the fact that your business isn’t going to be a secret. You’ve got to do a lot of self-promotion, including having social media accounts, posting often, and advertising yourself. This isn’t something you can keep hush-hush on the sidelines of your life. And, when people know that you work in the sex industry, there can be a bit of judgment that is thrown your way. So, you’ve got to have a skin that’s thick enough to handle that judgment and the name-calling.
There are also going to be hecklers and bullies on the internet. Here’s the thing about the digital age: It gives way too many bad apples a platform behind a screen to be abusive and horrible to those who don’t deserve it. So, with that thick skin, you’ve got to also have a firm sense of self. And, you’ve got to know your limits. A popular request for cam girls is the humiliation request. For some reason, there are guys who love to watch women get sexually humiliated. If you enjoy it, then, by all means, go for it. But, don’t do anything on camera that you don’t totally enjoy doing. And, don’t give into abusive requests just for the money. Cam girls are empowered when they are in total control of the situation.
It’s something that can also take a toll on their real-life relationships. So, cam girls need to make sure that they are comfortable with a smaller pool of romantic options. They’ll also want to make sure that they are upfront and honest with their future partners so that there’s no ‘big reveal’ when it might be too late for your SO to trust them. There are plenty of fish in the sea who would love to be romantically involved with a cam girl, so it shouldn’t change life too much when it comes to that.
