Interview: Couples on Cam

Have you ever wondered what the difference was between solo and couples camming? Here is the interview I did with Ed & Krystal regarding their experience.

Are you dating in real life?
We are an actual couple. We’ve been together, off and on, for 3 years. We enjoy a “semi-open” relationship as we invite girls on the show and Krystal will share me with them.

Do you think couples get more tokens and views than solo performers? Why or why not?
Couples vs. singles is probably a lot closer than you would think. But I would guess that couples get more views based on what I’ve seen. We do both couple and singe shows, and we generally get more viewers when we do shows together.

Do you only do couples shows? Or do you individually do solo shows as well?
We do both kinds of shows because our viewers  like to get one-on-one attention. But they love to see us together too. It really just depends on the mood of the rooms sometimes. If the solo thing isn’t coming across like we want, we’ll switch to a couples show.

From time to time, one person may receive more attention than the other. Does this ever bring up feelings of jealousy? If so, how do you cope with it?
We have a funny situation related to that. I built a decent following doing solo shows while Krystal was…….well…. she was in jail – but that’s a story for another time. LOL. And this group of loyal followers never fail to let Krystal know they are there to see me for the most part. Example: We were doing a threesome show and I had to step off camera for a second, to talk to someone at the door. While I was gone the girls were sitting there visiting with the viewers and they were flooded with “Where’s Ed?!” and “Is Ed coming back soon?!”. Two beautiful girls sitting naked on my bed, and the room wanted me back on cam. We have a great sense of humour about it, so it doesn’t bother us much. The best way to cope with any kind of jealousy issues is to just communicate boundaries and set up “rules” before uncomfortable situations create opportunities for jealous feelings.

Do you feel camming helps your relationship, or is it strictly for financial gain?
It started as a way to spice things up in the bedroom, but it quickly turned into more. Somehow, we felt closer to each other by sharing our most intimate things with total strangers. It built a sense of trust between us that has bled over into our everyday life. We are a team now, striving for the same goals. The money is great and we love our big tippers, but we are not in it for the cash.

Whose idea was it to start camming?
It was totally, and 100% Krystal’s idea. She was surprised I even agreed to do it! It just wasn’t in my character to do something like that. I was married for almost 20 years and had 7 kids before I met Krystal so this was outside my comfort zone. But I took to it pretty fast and found out a lot about myself in the process. Now I wish I had started a lot sooner!

Thank you so much to Ed and Krystal for agreeing to do this interview.

Interview: Evanu on Viewing Cams

Welcome back to the blog. Today we’re diving into another interview, but this time with a viewer.

So, you’re a viewer who hasn’t cammed in his life?

Evanu: Oh yes. Good thing too. I hate to think where the Lovense would have to go.

What kind of cam categories are your favorites? (ie, couples, trans, single female/male ect.)

Evanu: I feel honoured and privileged to be in the bedrooms of the single females. I respect them as being younger and often quite lovely. This is wonderfully supportive of my orientation and it makes me feel more manly.

What makes a cam model special?

Evanu: I look for personality, style, freshness and creativity. I like interacting with positive and playful models who seem present and responsive. Life force is important for me and I enjoy models who appear to love what they are doing. Especially when they are experiencing release through orgasm. This is a visual gift different than any other types of media since it is live, personal and interactive. 

What makes cams better than porn? (if you consider them to be, and if not, what makes porn better?)

Evanu: Oh, there are a lot of things. Top on my list is the aspect of how relaxed the models are in their own environment. They are self managed, directed and often quite disciplined. I feel that this venue provides many opportunities for self discovery and personal growth. Over all, I think it is a wonderful form of adult entertainment.

Do you consider watching cam models to be cheating?

Evanu: This is a great question. The answer would depend on the deeper motive for visiting. If a person is in a relationship with a close partner with whom they are having sex, I feel it is important that a man to be able to stand in his own reality and discuss this with his partner at some point. Living in a state of hiding, cheating and being mousy about one’s life and sexuality shows a weakness of character and personal integrity. But, discretion is important, too. It is important to consider your partner’s feelings before sharing, and know how to approach something that may be a sensitive and touchy issue. This also, I feel, may be valuable for opening discussion with her on topics that relate to human sexuality and eroticism.

What is the importance of tipping? /how much do you feel is an appropriate amount?

Evanu: I have never heard the phrase “Thank You!” used to often. Tipping is something that males need to consider wisely and must understand who or what is in control. One can tip over into debt quite easily, while another stays in the background absorbing visuals and never providing support for the models. The same is true for other media. I feel this is something each patron must decide for themselves based on how much they can afford and budget, and how they might choose to approach the venue. There are thousands of models available at any given time. How does one decide who to visit and support with tips, and why? There are also questions of control. Seasoned models know how to draw tips from naive visitors.  I think each person who enjoys the venue must recon with this issue at some point and learn to control themselves. This will lead to more consistent and enjoyable viewing, I believe. It is an important aspect of the male psyche to protect, support and maintain his household and friends. If I connect with a model and spend time in her bedroom I tip continuously but modestly as fits my budget. I am finding that it feels better to support a few rather than running around exploring new territory and squandering my resources. As far as an appropriate amount. Many models suggest a price list for what they are prepared to deliver. I think one should honor them when asking for services but never be afraid to negotiate. It is clear that models tend to be quite generous. We should respond in kind with someone we admire and respect.

————————

& of course a little self promo- tell me about your blog (when it started/why you started it/it’s goals & purpose)

Evanu: Having been a life coach for sex workers for many years I have come to view the camming venue as one worthy of support and positive input. I feel I have valuable resources to contribute to those who engage interactively there. I enjoy seeing others engage in self discovery and sharing their knowledge and experiences, especially when I have had a hand in their process as a facilitator.

What is the beautiful peoples project?

Evanu: The Beautiful People Project is about perfecting relationships and personal power. How we arrive at these things is very much a function of support groups of people who bring their best selves forward to share their wisdom and experience to increase stature, grace and elegance in their lives. The presence of these elements in a person’s life leads to greater and greater levels of happiness, satisfaction and joy coming from a place of personal self worth and giving. 
Thank you Evanu for reaching out to me, and collaborating with me to do an interview from the perspective of a cam viewer.

Interview: Rosie Hennessy

1. Who are you? (Stage name/Identity)
I’m Rosie Hennessy. I identify as bisexual with a preference to ladies.

2. How did you discover camming?
Well, I found out my partner has viewed cams in the past. Because I thought camming was only privates, I felt cheated on. Later I found out public chatrooms existed and that he’d never cheated in the first place. It was quite the drama.

3. What makes you different from other cam models?
I partake in the little kink. So I dress up like a little girl and act like one too. Guys really enjoy it and will try and be the highest tipper so you’ll call them daddy.

Little Kink Note: Most “littles” don’t act young 24/7, but when they do slip into their age regressed alter ego it’s called slipping into a “headspace”.

4. What tips do you have for new users?
Find something that makes you unique and play it up. Don’t be afraid to stand your ground. Never give away your name and location. Only get Snapchat if you’re prepared to work a lot.

5. What is the most outrageous thing someone has asked of you/done?
I had people really obsessed with the idea of getting off with their siblings. It was weird. They would message me and say “they were both watching me together”.

6. How has camming influenced your self image?
For the most part I think it’s improved it. It’s good to know people think I’m hot. I will say sometimes (especially with snapchat) I felt like a piece of meat. Overall though, I’d say it gave me some more self confidence.

 

A huge thank you to Rosie for talking about her camming experience with me for this blog. Be sure to check back next week for a post on making money when you’re offline.

Love always,
Amy

Interview: Living With A Cam Model

1. How would you describe living with a cam girl?
Interesting. That’s probably the best word to describe it.

2. What is the funniest story from the experience?
When you were live in the kitchen and I needed water. Oh, or there was the time I had a hook up over, and I heard you on camera.
3. What influences has it had?
I actually considered becoming a cam model myself, something I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. I thought it was taboo, but learned a lot of people do it and now I’m more comfortable with the idea.
4. Do you view cams?
Yes.
5. Have you ever come across a roommate?
I’ve never seen either of my roommates on the cam site, because of geo-block. Although, I did find someone else from my personal life on a website where his video had been uploaded to. Because it was stolen from the actual cam website he used, it didn’t matter if he had geo-block settings on.

6. Have you ever appeared online?
My voice did, so I made an alter-ego to go along with it. His name was Zach, and he even had his own twitter (now deactivated).
7. What advice do you have for someone in a similar situation?
It may be weird at first, but eventually you get used to it. Then it gets fun, and your life gets more exciting.
8. What is the main difference between living with a cam model, versus a non-model roommate?
It was more of a “nobody give a fuck” attitude. At times, we were more comfortable seeing each other in our underwear and were more open in the house. The downfall is that you live with a secret
9. Secret?
I thought the entire ordeal was interesting, and exciting so I wanted to tell my friends about my living situation, but because of privacy, safety, and stigma, I didn’t tell anyone about my roommates line of work.
As you read, “Zach’s” twitter is de-activated, so there isn’t anywhere you can find him, but I hope you enjoyed the read none-the-less. Catch me next week with a “Technically Speaking” blog on using Chaturbate settings!
Love always,
Amy

Interview: Chaturbate Profile Designer

Welcome to the first post of the Interviews series! To start things off, I decided to reach out to the man who coded for me when I was a cam model. Meet Jonny, better known as leedsladlooking4 on Chaturbate.

What is coding?

Html code is used to create electronic documents that are displayed on the web. Pages can contain a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. It can also be used to display hosted pictures.

Why is it important that cam models having coding on their pages?

I believe the best way for a cam model to be successful is to create a brand, much like any other business. And having a nice colourful and informative page is a great way to achieve this.

How much do you charge?

I charge 1000 tokens to create a profile, for that I include future updates such as birthdays/competitions/fan club members adding etc

*1000 tokens is equal to $50.00

How long does it take you?

A really intricate profile can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.

When you coded for me, you didn’t ask for my password. Is there any reason a profile designer would need to sign in as the model?

No, and they shouldn’t unless they trust their guy a lot. I had one girl ask me to log into her account to set up apps and bots but I believe it is something Chaturbate has a policy against. It’s not needed for the bio code. That is just a simple copy and paste at the models end.

What is your favourite thing to code?

The pages that have lots of information on them, sometimes a profile can look a little bare if there is not much to work from.

Anything you would like to add?

I think Chaturbate is a great site to meet interesting people, and see boobs while you are doing it!

I highly recommend that whether you’re new or experienced in the industry, you check out Jonny’s page. In my experience, he has been nothing but respectful, and his work is among the best to chose from. Check out examples of Jonny’s work, or visit his twitter to inquire about his services.
