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.

Making Money Offline

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.

Fan Clubs

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.

Lovense Sex Toys

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!

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.

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.
