Now that the internet has made it possible for anyone to make and sell porn from their homes, webcam modeling or “camming” has become very profitable profession.
The large network of camming websites allows amateur pornographers to upload explicit videos or perform live for a chatroom audience. These kind of websites use a “tipping” system that lets viewers pay to see certain sex shows. In the chatroom there is a tipper leaderboard displayed and top tipper is getting a show. Big spenders are listed as the cam model’s “favorites”. This system applies a soft competitive pressure on everyone to keep spending. Viewers pay using virtual tokens which the website converts into dollars.
There are great possibility 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.
Camming work mostly include independance and working in a safe place. However, cam models are performing for a large online audience and they are sometimes blackmailed or threatened into performing acts they are not comfortable with. Another threat comes from internet “trolls” who try to identify camgirls and ruin their lives just for the fun of it.
The conclusion is that 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 a good and a bad sides. So if you find yourself in this business, we wish you to be the best!
