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.
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.
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 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?
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.
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.
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.
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
Remember this is your job. Stay professional, and don’t use any social media to rant. It’s not a cute look.
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%
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?”
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!!)
Welcome to a brief guide to understanding your chat settings on Chaturbate. Let’s just jump right into it.
Font & Size
When you’re on camera, it can be hard to read what your viewers are saying in the free chat. To avoid some unattractive squinting, maximize the size of font, and change the colour to committing that pops out to you.
Settings > Font Size > 20pt
Settings > Chat Color > Chose your colour
On occasion, the chat may randomly turn back to the default settings. Don’t worry, it only takes a moment to change it back to your preferred settings again.
“Notify When Leaving”
A default setting of the website is to notify you whenever mods, fans, and users with tokens leaves your room. I found this to be both distracting, and annoying. To turn this off:
Settings > Notify on Leave For > No Users
You can also do this for notifying you when someone enters the room, but personally I recommend leaving it on so you can be sure to greet those users.
To add graphics to your chat type a semicolon (:), followed by a word to prompt options to chose from.
For example :tipifyoulike or :dancingBear
Removing Grey Users
“Grey users” or “Greys” are Chaturbate members who have not purchased any tokens, and therefore cannot tip you. I had a few grey regulars who were pretty respectful, and just enjoyed coming to my chat room to hang out, and enjoy the show. There are, however, a lot of grey users who demand models show their bodies, and engage in sexual acts without tips. As you can imagine, this gets pretty frustrating, so some chose to block grey users from typing in their chats. Here’s how:
Settings > Chats Allowed By: > Users who have tokens
There are a nice few ways to customize your chat. Play with your settings, and figure out what works best for you! Thank you for checking out this “Technically Speaking” article. Check back next week for an article on the do’s and don’ts of social media used commonly by cam models. Thanks for reading!
I once knew this girl who referred to her period as her “Shark Week”, which I thought was both hilarious and cleaver. A couple of us even got her a little bag with a photo of “Jaws” on it to keep her sanitary items in. Welcome to your quick guide on surviving your period as an online performer, inspired by sharks.

Take a Week Off
While this solution may be the best route for models who are new to the business, it doesn’t always work for those who are more well known, and have already gained a sizeable following.
The trick most cam girls use is simple. Take the string of your tampon, and tuck it in. Do not cut it. With this trick, you can still do clitoral, anal shows- anything that doesn’t involve vaginal penetration.
Change Your Birth Control
There are some birth controls that cause you to have your period once every three months, or not at all. Talk to your doctor for more information, and to find out if this is an option for you.
Not something I’ve ever done, but there are plenty of girls who add #period to the title of their show, and continue on as normal. There’s a market for everything when it comes to the sex industry.
PS. You should always thoroughly clean your sex toys after each use, but pay extra special attention when on your period.
(Note: this is technically against Chaturbate’s policy, as they disallow mentions of menstruation.)
I’ve never personally met anyone who uses a sea sponge, but this is a common trick used in the porn industry. The two key things to remember when doing this: A make up sponge can not substitute a sea sponge, and you must boil the sponge first. Also, make sure you are totally comfortable taking it out before you put it in. That would be one awkward trip to the doctor!
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.

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.
