Privates vs. Password Shows

This week’s post was going to be on being gay as a cam model, but in all honestly I ended up needing to write it in a public space. Since there’s an older gentlemen continuously looking at my screen, I chose to take a different route and do a technical piece for you. Glancers understand that less.

When I started, I thought private’s and password shows were essentially the same. They’re not. Here’s a quick post on the difference.

Password Shows

  • When you start a password show, it kicks the audience out of your room, and they won’t be able to return until you’re off.
  • There is no option for your other viewers to “spy” on your show. I had viewers who were super into this idea, as it made them feel like they were getting something more exclusive. It’s a good option to bring in those kind of people.

New girls beware: When I first started, I had someone try and convince me to set a phrase in the password show section, saying that it would get me more views, as it acted as a hashtag. That didn’t make much sense to me so I didn’t do it, but in case someone is a little smarter about how they phrase it to you, just know they’re scamming you for a free show.

  • Money: Always take your tokens up front for these shows because you will hear “I’ll pay you in a gift” or “I want to make sure I like your show before I pay you”. That pay cheque will never come.

Private Shows

  • -When you leave for a private show, your other viewers won’t be given the boot. A message will appear across your screen to let them know you’re in a private, and they can leave your cam open if they please.
  • -In my opinion, private shows are where it’s at. Because you get paid by the minute, this is where you can get dirty and make your killing. And people know that this is where you get scandalous, so not only will you be collecting tokens from the primary client, but also from those paying to “spy” on the show.
  • -Money 2.0: The website does the work for you. If your client runs out of tokens, the private show will automatically end. There’s no guess work. It’s great.

 

A final note before you go: Don’t be that girl that obviously drags things out to keep them in your private show longer. It makes for bad business. Keep it subtle.

  1. Add a minimum time requirement to your show.
  2. Instead of asking how they are, talk dirty to them before taking off any clothes.
  3. Instead of being neutral, prolong your fake orgasm and pretend to be edging.

Make it rain, girl, make it rain.

Check back next week for our scheduled post about being gay as a cam girl!

 

Love always,

The Time I (Kinda) Did Porn

I always knew that having my cam show recorded and re-uploaded on a pornography website was a possibility. I didn’t, however, think it would happen to me when I first started, when I had only a thousand followers. One Friday, a regular of mine messaged me a link to a video of one of shows on a website I hadn’t heard of before. You could see images from the show, but would have to pay to view the whole video, which meant that whoever had taken my video was now profiting from my work. And not only that, but I had no control over who could see the video, as there was no way to geoblock.

I was sick to my stomach. I messaged my flatmate, Rosie, who was also a cam girl, and she too found herself on this website. I emailed the support centre, but never did receive a reply, nor were the videos ever removed.  Rosie decided to fill out a form to have the video taken down, which is when she read that the website harbouring our videos was actually a network site of Chaturbates. This meant that the site that employed us was also recording us, and selling our content without paying us those profits.

So what can you do about this? There is an option in your settings to make it so that network sites can’t sell your videos. The downfall of this, however, is that you aren’t advertised nearly as well, and certain users simply aren’t capable of accessing your cam room. You have to take your pick: do you want less viewers and to have a company profit from your content, or do you want to stay off network sites and struggle with your rooms traffic? If you don’t want to appear on network sites:
Settings & Privacy > Appear on Network Sites > No
Additionally, if you play music in the background of your shows, a lot of websites won’t be able to post it (at least with sound) due to copyright issues.

Personally, I started off horrified of what was going to happen with these videos out there, but thankfully nothing has to date. Once I was done being sick to my stomach, I went back to the videos and took screenshots of the photos they used to advertise the videos. Now I have some sick ass nudes.

I hope you learned lots, and enjoyed todays post. Catch me next week with a post on being gay whilst being a cam model!

The 7 Types of Viewers

In my experience as a cam model, I’ve learned there are seven types of people who will watch you on camera. Here’s what it comes down to:

1. The Kayla

When I was on camera, there was this one user named Kayla who regularly watched me. She always brought up lesbian sex, taboo sex acts while on your period, and other things pertaining to her infatuation with womanhood. She also commonly asked for free things, claiming it would be okay to show her for free because she was a woman. A reverse image search on Google would show her profile photo was taken from Google images, and “she” was almost definitely a man pretending to be a woman for his own pleasure.

2. The “Send Pussy xxx” Guy

First and foremost, this guy is a total idiot. He’s in his early 20’s, he has his daddy’s credit card, and an attitude that the world owes him something. He will throw money at you, but you wonder if that’s so you’ll do what he wishes, or if he just wants to prove that he has the money to do it. He’ll send you messages such as “I have a big tip waiting for you if you send me that pussy xxx” or “I’ve already given you so much, I deserve this x”. You feel the need to deal with him because he pays, but he is near intolerable.

3. The Guy Who Bought a Girlfriend

Some people go to cam websites looking for a way to get off. Others visit these sites looking for someone to talk to, someone that will play the part of a girlfriend for the right price. This guy will eagerly buy your snapchat, and then never leave you alone. They want to know where you are, how you slept, and if you’ll send them a photo of you blowing a kiss. If only someone would show they how to download Tinder.

4. The Chaperone

The Chaperone is almost exclusively older men who have somehow stumbled upon this website. They tend to be respectful, and actively police your chatroom to ensure nobody is saying anything too vulgar. Often times, they aren’t even interested in talking dirty at all, and would rather talk about literature, and science. You love this guy for giving you a break from the hyper-sexualization of your room but his presence ultimately brings down your cash flow.

5. The Actual Creep

One of the main reasons I quit being a cam model. He took a particular interest in me because he lived in the city I was pretending to live in. Because of this, he would actively search for me in public. I wasn’t in the city he believed me to be, so I was safe but nonetheless it taught me a lesson that there will always be people who take things too far.

6. A Typical Grey

A “grey user” is someone who doesn’t have any tokens, but still wants the benefits of spending them. They make demands, and beg you to show them your body, then usually get frustrated and rude when you don’t. Not all grey users carry this mindset, but the ones who do probably make up the majority, explaining why some models have their settings so that grey users can’t speak in the chat rooms at all.

7. The Ones Who Make It Fun

Finally, to complete this list is the good guys. Your regulars who visit your chat room to compliment you and make it fun. These guys are respectful, tip for requests, and have no issue telling off rude users who circle in. They make your life as a cam model fun, and are the reason you do what you do. Be sure to thank them from time to time.

 

Did I miss any? Be sure to let me know if I did! See you next week for a post dedicated to the time I (kinda) did porn.

A Short Guide on Poop

So here’s the deal: I had planned to do an entire week about anal on camera. I had a few ideas such as reviewing anal sex toys, bleaching your butt, and so on. The problem was that I couldn’t come up with enough material for each post, and frankly I’m simply not interested in butt stuff so I decided to drop that idea. The upside is that you guys get a bonus post out of it! Enjoy this quick blog about now pooping yourself while taking dildo anally, and on a cam website.

Not Pooping Yourself

So, you’ve decided to do an anal show, or maybe you’re reading this because you want to privately try butt things. Whatever the case, here’s a few quick tip on avoiding everyones nightmare: accidentally pooping yourself.
The #1 tip is simple. Poop a few hours before you put anything in your butt. You can’t accidentally let go of something that isn’t there. The second tip is to eat a lot of fibre, so that tip #1 is possible. Some professionals also recommend eating bland foods, rather than spicy foods to not upset your bowels.

P.S. It’s going to feel like you’re pooping yourself. Calm down, you most likely aren’t.

Looking Clean

There’s probably going to be a camera getting some up-close and personal shots of your butt, so you want to make sure it looks clean. Obviously, the best and safest way to clean yourself up is to just shower with warm water and mild soap. Some people also chose to douche. This typically isn’t recommended, but is not harmful when done in moderation.

Okay, so now you know a little more about poop. Check back Friday for the regular post of the week!

Butt Safety

Let’s talk about anal! Below are some quick tips to safely masturbating with your butt.

Less Pain, More Gain

  • Lube, lube, and even more (water-based) lube. It’s something you hear often, and it’s with good reason that you do. Trust me, lube will make your experience so much better.
  • Start slow! Put small things in your butt before putting anything of significant size in there. And no matter what you put in there, be sure it has a base. I don’t need any of you ending up in the ER because a toy got stuck in your butt.
  • Fingernails hurt. Cut them.

“Cum” Prepared

Before your first anal show, make sure you figure it out off camera. You need time to figure out works for you without the pressure of your audience. Furthermore, just because you’re nervous, doesn’t mean you should get drunk or high to try this out.

“Don’t just be drunk or under some sort of substance and just trying to get it in there. That’s how a lot of women end up hating anal sex because you tend to be tensed up and not working with the process.” -Doctor Van Kirk

How To Not Give Yourself an Infection

Once something goes in your butt, it does not go anywhere else in your body. It does not go in your vagina. It does not go in your mouth. It does not go near your eyes. Repeat: once something goes in your butt, it does not go anywhere else in your body. This also goes for your fingers since bacteria can be trapped under your nails, no matter how short they are. Wash your hands thoroughly!

Clean all toys well, and use condoms over dildos. If a toy is used in your butt, it is now an anal toy. Buy something else for vaginal simulation. Please.

Be sure to check back next week for another post. Get excited because it’s a list of show ideas (you’re welcome).

& again, don’t put anything in your butt without a base.
Love always,
Amy

 

 

 

Socializing Naked

I’m going to start this article off with a quick burst of honesty. As an online model, I hated social media, and couldn’t stand to use anything but Twitter. Sure, it’s quick and seemingly easy money, but it makes it so that your viewers can contact you at any point in your day, instead of just when you’re on camera. This led me to feeling like I was constantly working, and ultimately caused me to dread the sound of SnapChat notifications. Here’s a few quick tips to make social media as a cam girl less about working 24/7, and more about creating a more fun and intimate experience for your clients.

Twitter

Twitter is the #1 social media used by models, and viewers. It’s relatively common that cam models have a free account, where they can post when their viewing or if there’s any change to their schedules. It can also be a great way to interact with your followers, without getting too involved (ie. surveys, like this tweet if..”). The key to this, however, is to ignore your direct messages. Save the one on one conversations for paid content, otherwise everyone will just use your free platform. Wouldn’t you?

 

SnapChat

If you haven’t already figured out, I despised SnapChat. It was ten dick pics in a row followed by a black screen with the words “Show pussy. I got a big tip waiting for u so I deserve it xx” written across it. Repeat. To avoid this, set extremely clear boundaries about your expectations. For example:

SnapChat is 369 tokens. No dick pics, or demands… unless they’re asked for 😉 Snap you soon! 

My flatmate, who was also an online model, would only check her social media 6 days of the week. She said it was a crucial part in keeping her from feeling like her job revolved around her part time job as a cam girl. Furthermore, for no reason should you ever feel guilty for deleting someone who does not respect your boundaries.

 

Instagram

I didn’t actually use Instagram as a model, so perhaps I don’t have a whole lot of room to talk about it. Here’s what I know from checking out other models accounts, and from talking with those who used it. Not many people will pay to follow your Instagram, as they usually feel they can just see you naked in the chat room. If they’re paying for the platform, clients will typically want to use something where they can chat with you.

Skype

Treat Skype as a platform for private shows. Take the money upfront, and make sure to keep an eye on the time so that you aren’t giving more than they paid for. Also, it’s worth noting that Chaturbate will not let you send messages containing the word Skype. If a customer is inquiring, insert a space between each letter so the algorithm doesn’t pick up on what you’re trying to communicate.

 

Email

Not really a social media, but it seemed relevant enough to include it. Since you have to make an email to set up any social media for your online persona, you might as well use it. Email is an awesome way to arrange privates, and you can attach it to your Amazon account to know when someone has purchased an item from your wish list.

 

 

A Couple More Quick Tips

  1. Remember this is your job. Stay professional, and don’t use any social media to rant. It’s not a cute look.
  2. You can make deals! If your social medias went for 400 tokens ea., why not sell two together for 600? Even in the cam world, people love a good Buy One, Get One 50%
  3. Turn off your push notifications so that messages from your clients aren’t appearing on your phone screen. You wouldn’t want someone from your real life to see that, and say “who’s messaging you?”
  4. As Rosie says, “know your value plus tax”. It can be hard to pick a price for your social media, as you want to start off more inexpensive and increase price upon increased demand. Try your best not to undercharge!

 

Social media can be a lot of fun, and is a fantastic way to get to know your viewers. It’s also an effective way to let them know about changes in your schedule, or any other relevant information. It’s totally up to you what you want to use, and how you want to use it! I hope you enjoyed this post, and I look forward to seeing you in the next one. (It’s about butts!!)

Love always,
