How Webcam Models Make Money
Now that the internet has made it possible for anyone to make and sell porn from their homes, webcam modeling or “camming” has become a very profitable profession. So, here is how webcam models make money:
Upload Videos from the Comfort of Their Homes
The large network of camming websites allows amateur pornographers to upload explicit videos or perform live for a chatroom audience. These kinds of websites use a “tipping” system that lets viewers pay to see certain sex shows. In the chatroom, there is a tipper leaderboard, in which the top tipper is getting a show. Big spenders are listed as the cam model’s “favorites”. Therefore, this system applies a soft competitive pressure on everyone to keep spending.
Virtual Tokens as Payment System
Viewers pay using virtual tokens which the website converts into dollars.
There are great possibilities to earn a lot of money working as a Camgirl. One cam model can make in an hour what most people earn in a week. Many models also have Amazon-like “wishlists” where fans can go and buy them things.
Risks for Girls Who Work as Webcam Models
Camming work mostly includes independence and working in a safe place. However, cam models are performing for a large online audience. They can sometimes get blackmailed or threatened into performing acts they are not comfortable with. Another threat comes from the internet “trolls” who try to identify camgirls and ruin their lives just for the fun of it.
Working as a Camgirl can bring you a lot of fun and a great income but you will have to be very careful when it comes to your privacy. And like any other job, it has good and bad sides. So if you find yourself in this business, we wish you to be the best!
