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. 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?
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
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!
Want to make more money as a cam girl? I’ve complied a list using my personal experience, and advice from other cam models about how to do just that.
Make More Money as a Cam Girl
Build a Schedule
Okay, so you have to do more than just making a schedule. You have to actually follow through with it. Some of the most successful cam models prepare a schedule up to a month in advance, and get their audience excited for the shows to come by promoting it on their social medias, and reminding their followers in the chat.
“Don’t forget that there’s a bondage show happening Monday night at 7pm!”
“Be sure to come back tomorrow night for the Lush show”
It’s no secret that viewers come to your room wanting to see you naked. If you’re already naked, and masturbating, what incentive do they have to pay you? That’s why I recommend saving your full frontal nudity for privates, paid social media, and when token goals are achieved. Similarly, if somebody asks you to do something, like showing your feet for example, kindly let them know that they need to tip first.
Token Goals: also known as “Countdowns” or “Tip Goals”, is when a model sets a monetary goal in exchange for a service. (ie. 2,000 tokens to orgasm)
Praise Your High Tippers
If you look at other models rooms, you may notice that a majority have their highest tippers usernames attached to their profiles. Thank everyone who tips you, but pay extra attention to those who tip you well. Being public about appreciating your Tip Kings will let potential tippers know that this is the way to get your attention.
Spend Time in the Free Chat
Nobody likes a cam model that sits on their phone, ignoring their users until they reach their tip goal is reached. If you want regulars, consider spending time chatting with your viewers in the free chat. Play up your persona, and make yourself as likeable and interesting as can be.
Pro tip: If nobody is talking, sing or dance along to your music. Prompt your viewers by asking them questions about themselves.

Whether your first show is soon to happen, or you’re an experienced cam model, the atmosphere you design is a crucial part in getting views. Here are five things to consider when setting the stage for your audience.
Pick a Background
A lot of people in the cam world tend to start out by filming on their bed. The perk of this is that it’s comfortable, but the downside is that a majority of cam models have the same setting. I’ve heard of people doing quite well outside, in their bathrooms ect. Personally, I set up a rug on my floor to stay comfortable, but also to offer an alternative background for viewers.
*Quick Tip: double check there’s nothing in the background that could hint at your location, or who you are. Examples of this include flags, university logos, and so on.
I’ve visited other models chat rooms, and the number one thing I notice clients being turned off by is a messy background. You need to realize these people are buying a fantasy. They don’t want to see your dirty socks next to you rolling around for the camera.
Make a playlist of not only mood-setting music, but also music that you like. When traffic slows, you’ll be thankful for a song you can hum or sing along to while you wait for things to pick up. Just be sure to keep the music at a level where you can enjoy it, but your customers can still hear you speak clearly. They’re here for personality. It’s also worth noting that it’s much harder for someone to steal your show and post it as porn if you’re playing music since it becomes a copyright issue.
Lighting and angles are the two most important aspects in making you look good for the camera. The best tip would be to set up your light source behind the camera. Invest in a great light if you can, but if not, a high power lamp will be just fine.
The Main Attraction
The main challenge of being a cam model is finding a way to stand out from the crowd. You aren’t going to be able to accomplish this by throwing on your nude undies and stained bra. Consider investing in matching underwear sets, lingerie, and even costumes. Catholic school girl, teacher, and cosplay tend to be costumes that get the most attention, but you can be creative and dress however you please. I once dressed up as a mermaid, since I have red hair. It didn’t last long, but I had a lot of fun with it!
The final tip. When setting up up your surroundings, make sure you have your toys cleaned, and ready to be used. Perhaps even place them in the shot to grab viewers attention. To get sex toys, check out Pink Cherry or Lovense!
I hope these five tips to setting a stage was helpful. Be sure to catch next weeks blog about the entire reason we have this job… Money! Disclaimer: next weeks blog is about the technical stuff, but don’t worry, there will be one on tips to make more dough coming soon. Thanks for reading!
So, you’re thinking of becoming a cam girl? Great. Here is a brief list of things to consider, and things to do before you get started.
Some Things to Think About First
This is arguably the most important thing to consider. While becoming an online model is a legal and valid way of making extra income, not all employers will view it that way. If you work with children, politics, or anything of the sorts, perhaps being a cam model is too risky.
When it comes to the men watching you, some moral conflicts can occur. A lot of them are married, and aren’t shy about it. Some will even want you to talk about their wives, or pretend she just caught him cheating. It’s a fantasy that you have to be willing to play along with. Aside from cheating clients, you also need to be aware that some men seem to be under the impression that they are “buying a girlfriend” and will want to always be in contact with you. Most importantly, you need to be aware that some clients will attempt to locate you. While there are plenty of precautions you can take to keep yourself safe, this will always be a risk.
A lot of the appeal in working in this industry is that you get to make your own schedule. While this is true, being a cam girl will still take a lot of your time. To be successful, you’re going to need to make a regular schedule, and engage in social media while you aren’t on the clock. Snapchat was the demise of my cam model career, as it made me feel like I was constantly working.
Before You Start
Still want to become a cam girl? Glad to hear- there are lots of perks to the job. Here are some things you need to do before starting.
Lock it down. Update your Facebook settings so that people can not search your name. Make your Instagram private and detach your real name to the account. Change your Snapchat username to a nickname. The last thing you want is for someone to accidentally stumble upon one of your personal social medias.
Social Media 2.0
When it comes to setting up social media for your cam girl persona, make sure you use an email specifically for this. Do not attach any social media to your personal email. You’re going to want an Amazon account, a Snapchat (probably), and a Twitter. Some also opt to have Skype, Kik, and Instagram but all of these are at your own digression.
To sign up, the website you use will need your real name, a scan of your ID, and a photo of you holding your ID close to your face. Your real information will be safe with your website.
Quick Tip: It can take a while to get verified. I remember having to re-submit my scans and photos upward of 10 times. Pay close attention to the guidelines, lighting, and angles (ie. the photo may not be accepted if admins cannot see the top of your head). It’ll happen.
