Your job is to masturbate, and while that’s as awesome as it sounds, it can be difficult to keep things hot and heavy. Here’s a quick list of tips to get you through hours of touching yourself.
Invest in lube.
Do it. Do it. Nobody can stay wet forever, and your vagina will thank you. Here’s a super helpful resource for picking out the right kind for your needs.
While you’re investing: sex toy cleaner.
This one isn’t a method of keeping things lubricated, but I thought it was important enough to make the list. Assumably, you’ll be using toys. Stay sanitary, ladies and gentlemen.
Have a partner help you out.
You get paid for sending nudes, but whose sending you private photos? Before going online, or while you’re on, consider have someone in your real life get you in the mood. I’ve known girls who’ve had their boyfriends sext them as they’re performing to help keep them feeling sexy. Not a bad idea, in my opinion.
No partner? No problem.
Porn! Or in my case, erotica! I have a private tumblr account devoted to it, and that was all I ever needed to get me good and prepared for some hot alone time. Thank you, internet.
For safety tips, click here. Don’t forget: if it goes in your butt, it shouldn’t go in your vagina, or mouth afterward & always pee after vaginal penetration. Happy masturbating. Stay wet, friends.
You’ve turned the camera off, you’ve got somewhere to be. Great news, you can still profit. Here’s a list of ways to make money while offline.
Sell Your Snapchat
Here’s how: Make a photo collection for tokens, making the second photo an image with your Snapchat username over it. Chaturbate will show the first photo as a preview of the image set, so I used the Snapchat logo.
Sell Your Nudes
Like selling your snapchat, you can do this by selling a photo set on your profile. Anyone who checks your account when your offline will have the opportunity to purchase your sexy pictures.
Members of your Fan Club should get special access to your content. Examples of this would be your photo collections, social media, customized videos, panties ect.
Sell Your Used Underwear
Speaking of panties, you can sell ’em. You can’t sell them through Chaturbate, but you can sell through another site and link it to your twitter & camming accounts. Be sure to use a website that is designed for this as most buy and sell websites do not allow used underwear to be sold.
Thanks for reading! Check back next week for a post on masturbation.
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.
To catch you up to speed, I’m considering going back to being a cam model. Click HERE to see Part One. Here’s what I’d do differently the second time around:
I’d keep Twitter. Actually, I think I would use the same Twitter as I use now for this blog to promote the site to cam clients. I’m pretty unsure about that, but what I’m positive about is that I would never download Snapchat again. If you have read my older posts, you know that I hated that app, as it made me feel like I was constantly working. It was home of the unsolicited dick pics, and dudes who thought they’d bought a cyber-girlfriend.
The last time I cammed, I spent most of my shows on my rug in my bedroom. Sure, I did okay with my Lovense shows, and such but I didn’t have anything that made me stand out from the other girls. This time I plan to get a pole and put it to good use. Another idea I had is having another person (who isn’t Rosie) come on screen with me for a couples show.
I had a really bad habit of responding to my regulars in the private message, even when they hadn’t paid for it. It took my attention off the main screen, and there were times where it felt overwhelming to flip back and forth through the people messaging me. This time around, I vow to only open the private messages if they’ve been paid for.
What did you think? Ex-cam models, what would you change about your experience camming? Check back next week for an interview from a fellow cam girl.
I’m considering going back to camming. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into the things I would do differently, and the pros and cons of the job in an effort to figure out if this is right for me.
Con: Some nights it feels like it takes forever to get started. For whatever reason, there will be nights that are dead, especially after you’re no longer showing up as being a new broadcaster. I mean, sure, it gets better once you develop a good following, but there are simply nights that aren’t worth your time.
Pro: With my busy life, I wouldn’t be able to find a second job that tends to my schedule. With camming, I can work when I need to. Working from home is a major bonus as well.
Con: I’ve talked about “the circle jerk” in previous posts, but it wouldn’t be a pro and con list about camming without bringing it up. It isn’t like I didn’t expect to be objectified- I knew what I was signing up for. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t get irritating when you see “I deserve to see pussy xx” and your fifth dick pic in ten minutes on your screen.
Pro: On the other hand of that, you will undoubtably be showered in compliments. I’d be lying if I said a piece of me didn’t eat up being called “beautiful” and “gorgeous” every time I logged in.
Con: A weird thing about being a cam model that nobody seems to talk about: there is constantly people messaging you trying to give you advice. Everything you offer is too cheap, or too expensive. Someone always has an idea to get you more views. Truly, the constant stream of people correcting your stream gets exhausting, and if I do go back to being a cam model, it’s something I’d need to start ignoring.
Pro: You’re constantly touching and edging yourself for an extended period of time. Some of my best orgasms have happened on camera, or shortly after it’s turned off.
I’m still undecided, but I’ll be sure to keep you all updated. Check back next week for part two: what I would do differently. Thanks for reading!
If you’ve looked around at other cam rooms, you’ve probably realized that a lot of people use a sex toy called “lovense”. I have personally used it, and think it’s an easy, and fun way to make your cash.
What is it?
There are multiple types of toys you can purchase, such as Lush (the most common on camera), Hush (see Butt Safety!), Domi (personal favourite), and more. The toy connects wirelessly to your chat room, and will vibrate as the people in your room tip. The toy also gives you a code that allows someone else to control its vibration patterns via their personal electronic device. You can sell this code, or give it to the person who tipped the most through the show. I found this to be the best method, because it kept people interested, and almost made it a competition.
How much should you charge?
As with anything, you can charge what you want! Here’s what appears to be the “going rate”:
1-14 low 3 seconds 15-49 med 6 seconds 50-99 med 10 seconds 100-499 high 60 seconds 500-999 ultra high 60 seconds 999+ ultra high 200 seconds
Where can you get your own?
Glad you asked. Click HERE. Honestly, Lovense makes making money easy, and I recommend it strongly. Thanks for reading!
No matter your gender, if you’re a cam model you’ve probably figured out that your clients are primarily male. It’s no secrets that women seem to be less inclined to these websites, which can be tricky if it’s women you’d rather be talking with.
If you’ve ever seen a show of mine, you would think I’m a bisexual with lots of interest in people, no matter how they identify. That was a lie for my audience. In all truth, I’ve only recently taken on the label of bisexual, and throughout the entire time I was on camera, I was exclusively dating women. Honestly, it was fun pretending to be someone else, but it came with its issues.
Even now, I would say that it’s rare for me to want to date a man. I have been, so obviously I’m not gay, but I certainly lean to one side of the spectrum more than the other. Since being with men wasn’t something I was even considering at the time, it was uncomfortable to constantly have men chase me. On camera wasn’t so bad, because it was a genderless bot typing to me as far as I was concerned. Snapchat was really where the problem was. Constantly, boys faces appeared on my phone screen as they told me how sexy, perfect, beautiful I was. Their eyes looked dull as they requested photos of my body. Never mind the occasional surprise dick pic I would receive. It’s funny, really. I had all these boys at my disposal if ever I wanted an interactive experience, yet I ignored them for low-quality lesbian porn.
The next problem was much harder. I went on plenty of dates, but there was only ever one girl I felt confident enough to tell about this part of my past. She was accepting, embracive even, but it’s no secret that not every reaction would be like hers. Maybe my worry isn’t justified, but I always feared that any girl I would date would not understand a “straight for pay” lifestyle, they would think I wasn’t “gay enough”, or maybe they’d think I only wanted them for male attention. Trying to find a relationship as a cam model felt hard enough as most people look down upon sex workers, but then to add in the extra stress of trying to explain pretending to be into men for cash- well that was hard.
Lastly, it makes you feel like you’re lying. My regulars frequently commented on how “authentic” they believed me to be, yet here I was, pretending to be something I wasn’t. As someone who was already struggling with identity issues, it made things even more confusing for me. I felt guilt, and confusion every time I made up a story about sleeping with a guy because I knew I wanted nothing to do with that. I knew I only wanted to seem available for my male viewers.
No matter your sexual orientation, whether or not you lie about it on screen, you’re valid. I’m not going to lie, being “straight for pay” sucked, but I did it to keep my regulars thinking I was enjoying their unsolicited advances. I didn’t enjoy the discomfort of men flirting with me, the struggles in real life dating, and the fact that I felt I was lying every time I logged in but I did it, and I don’t think that’s something I would change.
