Feeling Comfortable As A Cam Model

Feeling Comfortable as a Webcam Model

​When first starting out on cam, it’s important to figure out what kind of cam model you want to be. Just because you see the majority of cam models acting a certain way, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to follow in their footsteps. One of the most important factors among successful cam models​ is that they only do what they’re comfortable with. Doing only what you feel comfortable doing will make you enjoy your job that much more. And if you truly enjoy what you’re doing, it’ll show in your cam shows.

Despite what you might think from watching other models online, not all cam models get naked. Shocking, right? There is an art to teasing, and a lot of guys are really into that. Not all guys frequent cam sites to watch girls masturbating. Some are there simply to chat and make friends with you, for the company of the other fans in the chat room, and because they like your personality and enjoy interacting with you in a way that they might not be able to with other people in person. If you do decide that you want to be a non-nude model, it’s important to make that known to your fans. Misleading them to think that you may eventually take your clothes off if they tip you enough is wrong and could get you in a lot of trouble. Misleading your fans in that way can actually get you banned from cam sites. You may also start to notice bad reviews about yourself online. You won’t have return customers because no one will trust you. So just be sure you’re upfront about how far you go in your shows.

This is your job and you are in complete control. You’re free to switch up your style at any time. Maybe you decided to start non-nude and then decide a few months later that you want to start showing more. Doing this is completely up to you. But again, just be sure you’re doing whatever you feel comfortable doing. Don’t feel pressured into doing something you don’t want to do. If you’re uncomfortable or not enjoying yourself, it’ll show. It may be a turn-off to your fans to see you looking bored or uninterested. You won’t last as a cam model if you’re doing things that make you feel bad about yourself. The same way it’s ok to start doing something you didn’t do before, it’s also ok to stop doing something you used to do. If something you used to offer has started to make you feel uneasy, you don’t have to continue doing it.

Besides just deciding between being a nude or non-nude model, you also need to consider the kinds of things you want to offer and the types of shows you want to do. Do you only want to do live cam shows, Skype shows, premade content, sexting, phone calls, cam2cam, solo shows, boy/girl shows, shows with other cam models, dirty talk, toys, anal… the list goes on and on. Once again I’ll give you the same advice as I did earlier… only do what you’re comfortable with. Always remember that it’s ok to say no and it’s ok to ban someone who’s being a troll or making you feel uncomfortable.

Competition breeds success

Competition between Webcam Models

Competition breeds success. I will take that to the bank, even though half of you reading this will probably disagree with me. I suppose it’s a matter of opinion (even though I’m right!)

What am I referring to when I say that phrase? I’m speaking on why it’s OKAY to help out other models in the industry. It’s OKAY to share trade secrets. It’s OKAY to allow them to succeed along with you. It’s OKAY to let people know about camming, it doesn’t have to always be in the shadows.

Woah.. Calm down. I know that a lot of models will disagree with me on that last point. I have gotten into many debates about whether or not camming should stay exclusive and in the shadows of the deep dark interwebs. A lot of you feel as though the more girls that come in and saturate the industry, the harder it becomes to make money. I see why you would think that, and I don’t disagree that the more saturated the industry the tougher the competition. But I can’t help but feel like saying things like “We don’t want more models!” “Great, another documentary that’s going to bring even more competition” and other ridiculous, whiny statements are a cop out. That’s right, I said it. Deal with it.

When did people start looking at competition like it was a negative thing? You think that the top athletes in the world got there by bitching about how there were so many other athletes that were also good at the sport, so it isn’t fair because now they don’t look as good? No, that’s ridiculous. They trained harder, they adapted to the situation, they learned the weaknesses of their toughest competitors and they turned those weaknesses into their strengths. They succeeded because the competition forced them to become better, stronger, faster. (If you’re listening to a playlist, I recommend Kanye’s Stronger for this segment.)

How about McDonalds? You think they worry themselves over how Burger King and Wendys are doing? You’re damn right they do, but they don’t sit there and bitch about it, all of those companies are constantly innovating to come out with the next best thing.

That’s just the way that the cookie crumbles, and for every time a model complains about competition, a fairy loses its wings.

What it ends up turning into is this ridiculous back and forth of models being their own worst enemy and them trying to tear down other models behind their backs. They don’t want any documentaries to come out because they are afraid that a thousand new girls will show up in the cam world and make them obsolete.

How about instead of holding each other down and hoping that the competition isn’t going to be intense, we all start to raise each other up? How about we start supporting each other, giving each other advice, helping each other make money? How about we raise the bar. Because once that bar is raised is when the industry is going to be held to a higher standard all around. You don’t like the guys that come into your room and ask what they can get for $1? If we all created strong competition, only the best would survive, and the $1 guys would eventually be non existent because the girls charging $1 would either work harder to become one of the best, or wouldn’t be good enough to stay in the industry. We set our own standards.

I understand that for some of you, that might sound harsh, and I’m not denying the fact that it is. I’m also not denying the fact that I would rather work in an industry where it’s the top 1% and it is constantly challenging me to improve my craft so I don’t fall behind, then to work in one where I get to stay stagnant and live in a delusional world where I think I’m the best around.

When I first got into the camming industry, I said that I had never met a group of women that were more supportive than my fellow cam models, and I stick by that statement today. Whether that’s because those are the only types of models that I surround myself with or because I am choosing to highlight the positives over the extreme cattiness and sabotage that can also take place… I’m not sure.

What I am sure of is how sad it makes me to see models tearing each other down instead of building each other up. Seeing models complain about not being able to make money because of what someone ELSE is doing. For the love of god ladies, stop being a victim. Realize that if other models are taking your money it’s because you have been out hustled. Work harder to improve and adapt your hustle, or choose a different career because mediocrity shouldn’t exist within a luxury service. Period.

I don’t know about all of you, but I would rather be the worst cam model out of 100 amazing ones, then the best model out of thousands of mediocre.

Let’s innovate together, and help others become the type of models that we all should be. We’ll all make more money in the long run if the bar is set to a higher standard, and the only way to

Multiple streams of income

Diversifying your income from Webcam

I consider myself an entrepreneur. In fact, I consider every cam model one. Technically, you are running your own business, and camming on a site is just an extension of that. Sure, it would be easy to log on and cam every day and have that be your sole source of income, and I’m sure that for a lot of models that is the case. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, in my opinion, it is imperative to create multiple sources of income so that you never fall to the trap of depending on a site more than depending on yourself.

Take #Streamgate2015, for example. A day (and by day I mean MONTHS) that will live in infamy for the rest of existence. Streamate glitched and crashed extremely hard back in August of 2015, (and honestly, hasn’t really recovered 100% since then.. But I digress) and guess what happened when the site was barely workable? Models freaked out. They lost their minds. They screamed, they cried, they bitched. They feared for their paychecks and the bills that they owed, yet all of a sudden weren’t sure if they were going to be able to pay. It was a mess.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to sit up on my pedestal and preach to the masses about why the models shouldn’t have been upset, because trust and believe I was right there with all of them. However, I learned a very valuable lesson. One that I take with me every day in my business, and that is that you can never have too many eggs in your basket.

It was literally the worst feeling when the site that I depended on crashed. It was extremely difficult to stay connected and to make money for around a month. It was terrifying, and there were some days where I ate nothing but ramen noodles, and yes, I admit, my electricity was even turned off. I vowed to myself that would never happen to me again. Sure, you could just start on a new camsite, but it isn’t that simple is it? You have to be approved first, and then you have to wait an average of an extra two weeks to even start receiving any money which, at that time I was not financially stable enough to do. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that it is a scary thing when you don’t know whether or not you’re going to make enough money to feed you and your family.

Part of me actually wants to thank #Streamgate2015 for happening. We survived, we prospered, and hell, my income is better than ever because of what I learned from it. My number one takeaway? Multiple Streams of Income.

I realized that in order for me to never be put into a situation like that again, I was going to have to buck the F*&% up and guarantee my own financial stability. Who knows when something like a site crash could happen again?

First, I started making clips (trust and believe, I absolutely loathe clip making) and right away I started seeing an increase in my passive income. Was it thousands? Hell no. Was it enough to pay a bill or two every month? You bet your sweet ass.

Second, I started a white label…. and then I promoted the CRAP out of it. This took a couple months to see a return on, but now I receive 2-4 checks a month in the mail of passive income from members who spend on other models.

Third, I started investing time now to make money later. By that I mean, I started to spend a lot of time (and I mean A LOT of time) on social media. I didn’t see anything from it for a while, and there were days where I would get so frustrated that I wanted to scream, but then after about 6 months of spending at least 3 hours a day on my social media presence, my ish blew up. In a BIG WAY. I can now take damn near 3 weeks off of cam if I feel like it, and sustain more than enough to pay all of my bills and live comfortably off my snapchat sales alone. (Gain followers, engage your audience, the potential for becoming brand ambassadors, spokespeople, and a brand to be reckoned with is there. You just have to invest your time to see a return.)

Fourth, I picked some model websites that I enjoy and I signed up for affiliate programs to their website. Now I can make money off of their work as well as supporting other models in the industry (which in my opinion, makes for a stronger industry as a whole.)

Finally, after all is said and done I started to take a look outside of the adult industry. Now I’m at the point where I am going to invest. That way I can watch my money make money.

So long story short, here I am, 10 months after #Streamgate2015, and I have so many sources of income hitting my bank account that it take actual effort to keep track of what I get paid and when. I feel completely financially stable, and more importantly 100% in charge of how I run my business. If a cam site isn’t working for me, I don’t stress anymore, I adapt, and the only reason I’m able to do so freely is because of branching out of my comfort zone and making sure that the only business I depend on to keep me financially stable, is my own. My advice to you is for you to do the same.

Enhancing yourself as a product.

You’re Not a Person, You’re A Product

There are a few things that happen when I go on the cam-girl forums, twitters and snapchats of the world. The first thing is that I get boobs in my face (on the social media parts, at least) lots and lots of boobs. The second thing I get is annoyed, and I mean that in the most polite way possible. Now, I’m not saying that every cam-girl annoys me by any means, but I get so unbelievably frustrated when I see them complaining about their regulars spending money on others, or how they can’t sell a product to their 60,000 followers on Twitter. Point blank, you’re not a person, you are a product and if you aren’t treating yourself that way, then therein lies the biggest problem.

I know you just read the following words in the paragraph above, but since my entire sermon in the Church of Camgirl Sales revolves around it, let’s just put it in our faces one more time.
YOU’RE NOT A PERSON. YOU’RE A PRODUCT.

You don’t need to take that literal. I mean, you do but not to the point of being a robotic, boring mess with no personality. Of course you’re going to need to have a personality and connect with people on a level that they can develop a sense of loyalty and get to know you. That’s not what I mean by that statement. What I mean is… all of that good “personal” stuff? That stuff that ropes them in and convinces them to spend, is what you’re selling. Your brains, brawn and beauty all wrapped up in a pretty package with a big damn bow on top. You are your own product, therefore you need to learn how to treat yourself as such.

My three biggest tips?

1. Create an Image and stick to it.
When you think of Ferrari what pops into your head? My guess is probably the color red. How about Pillsbury? Nascar? Kim Kardashian?
I could go on, but I think the point I’m trying to make is fairly evident. The Kardashian family is the perfect example. People can say all they want that “they are talentless” but I wholeheartedly disagree. Sure, they aren’t the same type of talent that was needed 20-30 years ago to reach the level of fame and notoriety that they’ve achieved, but it also isn’t 20-30 years ago, and it’s about time that people stopped living in the past and realized that the way consumerism works as a whole has changed. The Kardashians understand that and turned themselves into products in such an amazing way. I mean, they are literally able to sell the idea of THEMSELVES and make millions. In my opinion, that’s some talent. (If that’s not enough for you, they have talent at making money which is the talent I would pick ANY day of the week) They capitalize on the fact that they can post a single picture wearing an outfit, or talking about something and people will run out and fight to death over it in the stores. They create their own demand (which I’ll go over in another piece..which you should probably read… definitely read it. You’re gonna read it, right? LOVE ME!!!!) My point is, they understand the phrase “You’re a product, not a person” perfectly and slay with the execution. (#SlaaaaaaayMama)

I once heard a record producer give advice on how to stand out in any industry. He said that to make it in any industry people have to either be like you or want to be you. Which one are you going to be?

2. Don’t get emotionally invested.
Getting emotionally involved is such a rookie mistake and sadly I see it happen again and again. All too often there is a woe is me story from a cam-girl about how one of her best clients has been going in another girls room spending money, buying another girl presents, giving another girl attention. I’m emphasizing the word another because that’s what you should be doing, also. If your client is with someone else than #ByeFelicia, have fun, Sayonara…because guess what? You’ll find another client. Regulars come and go, that’s just the way of it. Convert someone else, move along. If they aren’t spending on you, then they shouldn’t matter to you.
Woah, woah, woah. Put away your pitchforks and let me elaborate a little. It’s natural that we are all going to like some of our regulars more than others, and form friendships. That’s honestly one of my favorite aspects of camming, it’s amazing getting to know so many different awesome people… but when you start to have expectations of your client, you become no better than a regular who starts to think they are entitled to things because of how much they have spent on you. Don’t be that guy, dude. Just don’t. If they pick up and move along, you do the same. Thanks for the memories, and focus on the future.
And finally…

3. Realize that your social media is your professional portfolio.
I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Aesthetics is an important part of what makes people like what they like and buy what they do. Every food commercial, every clothing line, every professional model is always projecting their best image on commercials, runways and in catalogues. It’s the same thing with your social media. Every picture and post that you make is what people are going to use to create their idea of who you are and what your total image is. So, before posting that pic or tweeting that tweet, make sure it’s something that you would put in a portfolio you were presenting to a job interview, or taking to a potential client. I mean really, when it comes down to it, that’s exactly what it is.

So there you have it. My sage wisdom and advice. You’re welcome. 🙂 (Disclaimer: I’m not 100% sure that I’m all that wise or really the giver of SAGE advice. But hey, it sounds pretty good eh?)

Should I go independent or Not?

Livin’ that Indy Life

Should I go the independent webcam route? Whether this is something you’ve been asking yourself or not, it’s a valid question to bring up. When first considering delving into the Independent cam world, it can be an extremely daunting task. There are so many options out there and it can almost make it seem like you’re drowning.
That’s okay, having no idea where to begin is normal.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in other posts or not, but I highly recommend searching around and joining cam-girl forums to learn some tricks of the trade, and be able to connect and talk with other models in the industry who can help you along if you have any questions.

Start by setting yourself up on a directory site like cammodeldirectory.com or Livecammodelshows.com. If you’re wanting to be able to charge per minute without having them pre-pay in full skyprivate.com is another option. This is a great way to start building up your clientele through the traffic that the sites have on their own.
When I finally took the plunge and jumped into going Independent, I realized that I shouldn’t have waited so damn long in the first place. Honestly, I’ve never been happier. I was a strictly Streamate girl for a long time, and when the site started to be unreliable, I decided that even though it scared the piss out of me, I was going to bite the bullet and transition as much as possible into Indy. Take control of my own destiny and all that.

I started by talking to some of my other cam girlfriends who I knew were already offering Skype shows. They knew some of the things that would make me not such a bumbling idiot the first time I attempted a show. After they gave me some tricks of the trade, I signed up for Cammodeldirectory.com. I heard great things about them having their own traffic, and figured it would be a great way to start to build up my clientele. Then I started advertising on social media, and lo and behold I got my first show!

I was crazy nervous ya’ll, I’m not even kidding. Felt like a brand new baby cam-girl all over again, but I took deep breaths, a shot of tequila, put on some gangster rap and handled that sh*t.
Truth of the matter? It was fantastic, not only did I get to keep a much higher percentage from the show so I ended up making more, but it was so freeing to not have to worry about rules of the big box site that I normally cam on. After that first show I knew that I was an Indy whore for life. I love being able to just switch my skype availability and have show offers pop up. I can watch television, read, knit, whatever the hell I want, all while I wait for someone who wants a show. Sometimes I log on my big box site and make some money while I’m waiting for a skype show to come through! (Ah! The earning potential! I can’t handle it!)

Once you’ve decided on going forward with Indy camming, it’s worth it to create a payment portal for people to book Skype shows with you in advance. Personally, I use mysecretpayments.com. (….which I’ve just started using and am LOVING it!) Setting up a payment portal gives your followers on social media an easy way to book a show with you and pay without having to jump through a million different hoops.

On top of camming on Skype, I also do a lot of Snapchat premium sales and make content to sell independently. The less I have to depend on someone else for my streams of income, the better! (I especially recommend your own payment portal if you sell extras like this; snapchat, panties, signed photos/poster/calenders etc.)

All of that being said, if you don’t have a following independent of whatever site you’re camming on, going Indy can be a struggle at first (at least until you build up your clientele) so if you do decide on dipping your toe into the wonderful pool of Indy, (which I would if I were you) I would stick it out with the site you’re on now, as well. Make it a side ho’ first, and see how you get along with each other. Just like not all cam sites are created equal, neither are cam-girls experiences with Indy. I’ve heard my fair share of stories of models that both hated and loved it. It’s really all going to come down to your personal preference. All I’m sayin’ is .. If you like expanding your money making horizons, then give it a go. What’s the worst that is going to happen?

Games To Play With Your Fans On Cam

Webcam Games for Tips

​If you cam on a site that is set up like Myfreecams, where you spend the majority of your time in public chat waiting for tips to reach your goal, it’s definitely a good idea to play games with your fans. Not only will this make the time go by faster, but it encourages interaction between you and your fans. It’s fun for everyone! There are lots of different games that you can play. I’m gonna go over a few of the more popular ones in this article, but of course you can always be creative and come up with new games that you think your fans will like.

CARD GAMES

There are several card games that are easy to play while on cam. The first is Blackjack. When a fan tips to play Blackjack with you, all you have to do is shuffle the deck, deal a card to yourself face down, deal a card to your fan face up, deal another card to yourself face up, and another card to your fan face up. Your fan then gets to decide if they want to hit (take another card) or stay. The goal is to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over. If they go over, you automatically win. Once they’re satisfied with their hand and decide to stay, you flip over your face down card. Now it’s your turn to hit or stay to try and beat their score.

War or High/Low, is another easy card game to play on cam. All you do is shuffle the deck, draw a card for yourself and one for your fan. High card wins. Easy!

DICE GAMES

Dice games are also simple, yet fun to play with your fans. One of the most popular dice games is Spank Dice. It’s best to either use a 20-sided dice or several regular dice for this game. It’s up to you how you play it. One way is rolling the dice and spanking yourself the number of times that comes up. Another way would be if the number is odd, your fan loses and you don’t have to spank yourself. But if it’s even, you spank yourself that many times.

You can even play Yahtzee with your fans. You roll five dice and show them to your fan. They decide if they want to hold any dice and then you roll the other dice again. Repeat letting them hold or roll dice one final time. Depending on what they end up with, give them better prizes for a better hand: three of a kind, four of a kind, full house, small straight, large straight, Yahtzee.

WHEEL SPINS/GRAB BAG

Wheel spins or grab bag if you don’t have a wheel, is another fun way to entertain your fans. You can put anything you want as prizes. To make the game really interesting, you can even put bad things up as prizes. For example, start over the current goal countdown, add a certain number of tokens to the countdown, put back on an article of clothing, etc.

HANGMAN

Not as popular of a game, but still something to pass the time. Think of a word and draw out Hangman. When a fan tips to play, you give them a certain number of letters that they can guess per turn. If they think they know the answer, they can tip to guess. If the word is correctly figured out before you finish drawing hangman, everyone who participated gets a prize. You can announce the prize beforehand, or make things more interesting by having it be a random draw.

LUCKY NUMBER

Pick a random number between 1 and 100 (or whatever range you want). In order to guess a number, your fans have to tip that number. So if they want to guess 13, they tip you 13 tokens. Keep an updated list of the numbers that were already guessed so they aren’t guessed more than once. The person who tips the “lucky number” gets a prize.

NEVER HAVE I EVER

Never Have I Ever is a lot of fun! You can either buy the actual game or let your fan pick the “never have I ever” scenario. If you’ve done it, you take a sip of your drink. All of your fans can play along!

BALLOON POP

For Balloon Pop, you write different prizes on little pieces of paper and put them inside of balloons. You can make it completely random, or have certain color balloons have better prizes, and those cost more. When a fan buys one, you pick a balloon, pop it, and they win the prize inside.

The Sex Factor: An xHamster Original Series

The Sex Factor Series

If you’re looking for an sexy, entertaining new reality show to watch​, then you should definitely check out Sex Factor! Sex Factor is an xHamster original series that can be streamed online for free. Season one premieres on Thursday, May 19th at 1pm PST. If you’re looking to spice up your sex life, this show could definitely be fun to watch with your significant other. It’s basically a reality porn show with 16 amateur contestants who have never performed in porn before competing for $1 million and instant porn stardom! This isn’t your average TV show, they don’t leave anything to the imagination!

All of the hardcore action will be judged by five famous adult film stars: Lexi Belle, Tori Black, Asa Akira, Keiran Lee, and Remy LaCroix. Throughout the competition, the 16 contestants will find out just how hard it is to be an adult film star. They will take part in increasingly complex and explicit sexual challenges. Things get emotional at times as the contestants come to realize that the porn industry isn’t all fun and games… it’s actually a lot of hard work… no pun intended! 😉

The five judges not only work as judges, but as mentors and coaches to help the contestants through the different challenges and struggles that they’ll face throughout the competition. All of the judges agree that this is one of the coolest projects they’ve ever been a part of. They take a lot of pride in the fact that their judges, and are all excited to find the next big star in the porn industry. Seeing how much energy and enthusiasm the contestants put into everything, made it very difficult to send all but two of them home. But even though sending people home is never fun, watching the whole experience unfold is definitely entertaining for viewers.

The eight female contestants range from age 21 to 26. And the males are between the ages of 21 and 31. All 16 of them are amateurs. One of the requirements when trying out for the show is that you’ve never been in a formally produced adult movie. Even though season one is just premiering, they already have plans for season two of the show! Season two of Sex Factor kicks off with an open casting call at the AVN Awards in Las Vegas January 18th-21st, 2017.

You can find out a little more about each of the contestants by reading their individual bios. Almost all of them have Twitter accounts. Based off of the amount of Twitter followers each had, I’m pretty sure I already know the male and female winners. But don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you. Who else is gonna be watching?!

Show me your Tits BB

please show tits bb

Nothing is free on Webcam.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, and I’ve heard it a thousand times before. “The best things in life are free.” In real life? Maybe. (although I’m going to come in with a strong #debatable). In Cam life? NOTHING IS FREE.

Let’s just get all of the silly questions out of the way now, so we can delve into the truth of the subject.

“What about smiles?” … While it’s true that smiles may not be paid for with cash, tokens or gold (Although it might work if you DO charge for it) they are most certainly paid for with your soul that will inevitably be sucked out piece by excruciating piece from dealing with the gigantic F*$% Boys that you have to deal with on a daily basis. (“Ass BB.. Open tits BB.. Show me a preview and then Private BB)… but I digress.

“If I tease for free then maybe they will pay for it!” Nope. No. NOOOOO. Don’t fall into this trap, beauties. There is so much out there for you, and money is at the head of the pack. Would you ask a clothing store to give you a free shirt so you could test it out before you buy it? How about asking a restaurant if you could try a small version of their entrée dish for free? Pretty sure they would laugh in your face and walk away. At least, that’s what I would do.. In fact, it IS what I do anytime some entitled jerk comes into my cam room and tries to get the milk for free. Repeat after me, ladies and gents. “NO, the cow is NOT for sale and the milk is NEVER free.”

The fact of the matter is that you are providing a luxury service. The key word to remember there is LUXURY. If you are out of their price range than you are also out of their league. (Awe..can’t afford a show? Better start saving up to give yourself a nice big birthday gift!)

Here’s what you do. Sit down, write out a list of what you know you will get asked for and then price out what you’re comfortable charging for each individual thing. Don’t second guess yourself!! If you want to charge high, charge high! This ain’t Walmart, and you don’t need to roll back your prices. The way I see it, it’s better to start your prices higher and lower them if you need, rather than setting the bar low and having to explain to people why your prices are being raised.

Flash? $5

Spanks? $3/spank

Twerk? $15

Blocking them when they continue to try and get it for free? Priceless.

You get the idea. Don’t sell yourself short! If you have people trying to get things for free than you either convert them into a paying customer or you cut the gigantic, pathetic freeloading cord that is their life. (#ByeFelicia)

Have I drilled that into your head enough?

Good.

So here comes the other side of things. Some people that you’re going to encounter like to sip on that haterade that is their miserable existence and call it juice. These people will be climbin’ in your windows, snatchin’ that free pussy up, so ya’ll better hide your girls, hide your sin-caves and hide your emotions cause they monetarily rapin’ er’body up in here.

Common phrases include, but are not limited to:

“I’m just asking because OTHER models do it for this price.”

“If you showed more for free, then more people would tip in”

“But I’ve given you so much money already!”

“You’re expensive”

(Side note: If you didn’t read that in an obnoxiously whiny voice, take it back one time and try again)

If you haven’t already figured it out, these people are idiots. They aren’t worth your time, and more often than not they are either trying to get you to lose your cool, or they are honestly ignorant enough to believe that you would show them something for free… and for what? Because they think they deserve it? Girl, please. You control your room and if you give away the goose, you give away the gander. (The goose being YOU and the gander in this case being the control)

Let’s face it. This is a job that comes with the vulnerability of exposing parts of yourself that most people would never dream of exposing, let alone have the courage to show even their closest of friends. There is a risk involved, there is the knowledge that everything you do while the cam is turned on has the possibility of being posted on the internet ANYWHERE and being seen by literally ANYONE. (If you don’t think this is the case, you are severely naive, and I recommend you research some more about what career choice you’re making before deciding on anything.)

Taking all of these things into consideration, I think we can all agree that we have the right, NAY, the duty to charge for any and all of the services and products that we provide.

Including the pleasure of our sparkling personalities. 🙂

I’ll leave you with this. Ultimately, the decision whether to give away teases and freebies is up to you. It’s your world and we’re all just living in it. All I’m preaching here is that you should never let anyone devalue you as not only a product, but also as a model.

…and hey, I’m not saying to stand up and say to the world “I have the Pussy, so I make the rules. Pay to play or get the F*&$ out”

…but I’m also not NOT saying that.

Top Webcam Forums for Cam Girls

Whether you’re new to the camming world or a veteran, it’s good to have a place where you can ask questions, get advice, vent, and hang out with other cam girls. Luckily there are several large forum sites where you can do just that! In the video, I briefly explain some of the general features you’ll find on each of the big forums. Here are some more details on each:

AmberCutie’s Forum

AmberCutie is one of the biggest and best forums for cam girls! It’s very active, and new posts are made daily. They have both a public section and a section reserved for “verified cam girls”. There are plenty of resource guides in the public section to help new cam girls get started. But if you’re an active cam model and active on the forum, you can apply to get “verified cam girl” status so you can access the Models Only forum. Male and transgender cam models are welcome on the public forum, and there is even a male model thread, but the Models Only section is reserved only for cam girls. They don’t exactly explain their full reasoning behind this, but they do say that it was originally started for Myfreecams models (since the owner cammed on MFC), and since MFC only allows female models, the majority of the posts are focused around cam girls.

The two main public sections on the forum are General Cam Chat and Ask-a-Model. If you’re new to camming, the General Cam Chat section is your new best friend! There are pages and pages full of resource guides, tips and tricks, advice to succeed on specific cam sites, toy reviews, and so much more! Even if you’re a veteran to camming, you’ll find lots of interesting threads to read where you can discuss different aspects of being a cam girl with girls who do the same thing as you. If you’re uncomfortable talking about what you do with friends or family, this is a great place to go and chat with other models who can relate.

The Ask-a-Model section also has a lot of guides for new models. If you have a question about something related to camming, you can most likely find the answer in one of the threads. And if you can’t find an answer to your question, you can always start your own thread. Chances are it’ll be answered by a member of the community in no time. If you need help understanding how forums work and some basic etiquette for cam models, You can view our article titled: Webcam Forum Etiquette.

Wecamgirls

Wecamgirls is another great site. Not only do they have a forum, but they have lots of other features as well. The forum is very active, and you can find models making posts throughout the day, every day. They have threads about every major cam site and content selling site with lots of tips and advice. Even some of the newer and smaller sites are listed on there. There are very useful threads about different adult-friendly payment methods, the best hardware and software to use on different sites, camming equipment, and more. There are even threads to promote your website and sell/buy sex toys, clothes, and jewelry from other models.

Besides the forum, they have an extensive review section with thousands of reviews on cam sites, payment providers, content selling sites, and studios. They also have over 1,000 resource guides.

Stripper Web

StripperWeb was originally started as a resource forum for strippers, but they have added a Camming Connection section for “virtual strippers” aka cam models! There are over 400 pages in that section of the forum alone. There are guides for different cam sites and content selling sites, general camming guides for getting started, equipment info, and just general discussions. You can find a lot of information on the forum, so it’s a good place for new cam models to start if you’re looking for some guides and advice. And if you’re just looking for a place to vent, read other cam models personal stories, and get some tips from girls who are dealing with similar situations, you can check out the Life Support section.

What Is Miss MyFreeCams?

What is Miss myfreecams all about?

​If you’ve frequented chat rooms on Myfreecams, you’ve probably heard models talking about the Miss MyFreeCams competition. It is a monthly competition on MFC that starts at 12:00:01 am PST on the first of every month and runs until 11:59:59 pm PST on the last day of each month. All active models on the site are automatically eligible for the contest, and the top 100 models who earn the most tokens during each month will receive a cash prize. The top girl is crowned Miss MyFreeCams!

There are lots of prizes to be given out in the Miss MyFreeCams competition each month, including bragging rights! The top 250 models are listed on the Miss MyFreeCams page throughout the month, which is good for exposure. The top 100 models all receive a cash prize and remain listed for the duration of the year. The top 20 receive additional exposure on the page that shows rankings from previous years. The top 3 models each month receive a little crown icon on their profile picture, inclusion in the top banner on the website, and a congratulatory tweet from the MFC Twitter page with over 93K followers. The girl crowned Miss MyFreeCams also receives a custom-designed, hand-made official Miss MyFreeCams pendant and matching necklace. The pendant is made with 14K white gold, diamonds, and accent stones that coincide with the traditional gemstone of that month of birth. Each year they use a new design for the crown pendant, making each necklace unique.

As far as cash prizes go, here is the breakdown:

  • 1ST: $1,000
  • 2ND: $800
  • 3RD: $700
  • 4TH: $600
  • 5TH: $500
  • 6TH: $450
  • 7TH: $400
  • 8TH: $350
  • 9TH: #300
  • 10TH: $250
  • 11TH – 20TH: $200
  • 21ST – 100TH: $100

Some may argue that the cash prizes aren’t that large for how competitive the competition gets each month. One reason for that is so that models don’t purchase tokens for themselves in order to boost their ranking. If you’re in the top 100, it takes a lot of tokens to move up in rank. And the price difference between buying and receiving tokens is 50%. If a model just wants bragging rights, she may purchase tokens for herself, but if she’s going for the cash prize, it makes no sense to. And during most months, the top 3 girls are thousands and thousands of tokens apart from each other, so the model would have to spend a fortune to increase her rank herself.

Miss MyFreeCams is more about having fun, pushing yourself to rank higher than you did the previous month, and getting your fans to tip you more tokens to increase your rank! When someone tips you and that tip makes you move up in rank, you should always make it a point to thank them profusely! This will encourage them, and other fans watching, to try to be the next one that moves you up in the ranks. Like with any competition, there is always going to be the models (and fans) who get catty and mean. Ignore them. They’re only jealous and trying to get a rise out of you. Focus your attention on your room and your fans. Maybe if they did the same, they’d be ranked higher that month. 😛

Throughout the month, you can check your current Miss MyFreeCams ranking at any time through your Dashboard. It also shows all of your past rankings. From your Dashboard, you can also choose to keep your username anonymous if you place in the top 250. I don’t think any models do this though because you will only receive half of the prize money if you’re anonymous, and you cannot win first place since your profile picture cannot be shown.

If you decide to cam on MyFreeCams, don’t spend too much time worrying about the competition at first. Focus on making your show great and entertaining. If you do that first, you’ll notice your ranking in the competition increasing, without you even having to do anything different!
