How To Avoid UTI’s or Bladder Infections

sex, uti, camgirl

One (another!) thing that became new to me once I started camming was Urinary Tract Infections (aka. UTI’s or Bladder Infections). I had never had one before and I didn’t start getting them until I was about a year into camming. I’m a very clean camgirl, which helps, but I have had to basically go OCD on being clean(er) in order to further prevent any more flare ups. Here is what I do to keep my lady bits happy and try to avoid this occurring again:

    • WASH YOUR TOYS!  Every time you use them! For my non-electronic toys I use a diluted (with bottled water) version of Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Castile soap in a spray bottle to wash my toys (under HOT running water!) and then dry them thoroughly with a CLEAN towel. For my electronic toys I use a clean, dry washcloth and toy cleaner spray.
  • PEE AFTER EVERY PRIVATE!  I’m serious! Anytime your stick anything in your vagina or even rub it GO PEE as soon as you can! This will help flush out any bacteria that has gotten into your urethra/urinary tract. Do not hold your bladder for too long – even if you have to log out of Free Chat to do so.No UTI!

  • DRINK LOTS OF WATER!  I find myself constantly in a conundrum with this one. I’m trying to avoid peeing so I can stay on cam longer but if I don’t drink enough water I end up with a UTI – Grrrrrrr…. I’ve started a schedule to make sure I drink what I need to: 1 bottle first thing when I get up – 1 bottle about 20 minutes before I log off for lunch (1-2 hour break)- 1 bottle 20 minutes before I log off for dinner (1-2 hour break) and then I sip 1 bottle during my night shift so I’m not up all night peeing 🙂 drink water, pee, uti, camgirl
  • CRANBERRY /URINARY SUPPLEMENTS & JUICE: Take a cranberry/urinary health supplement and drink a bottle of cranberry juice before bed. AZO has a wonderful line of urinary related supplements that are absolutely AH_MAZING!
  • PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS IN YOUR LUBE! You may very well be using something that is not good for your body or that your skin is sensitive to! Try different lubes to see which are not as irritating to your sensitive girly bits 🙂 Lube reviews are cumming soon! A few of my favorites are below!

Happy peeing!

What To Wear on Cam? Wear what works for YOU!

Be Yourself, camgirl, wear, model

One of the best things you can do for yourself as a cam model is to just be you If you are a newbie, I know you have been nosing around the sites, watching models and trying to see how this all works. I did the same thing. Obsessively taking mental notes on what the model’s were wearing, what their rooms looked like and how they conducted themselves. If you are a seasoned veteran you are either in there to see if the site is having tech issues, spying on your haters or looking to see what the other models are wearing (I’m guilty still!).

During your research you may notice there are 2 types that stand out the most:
  1. Models with fancy looking rooms wearing fancy lingerie.
  2. Models with normal looking rooms wearing panties and a bra or t-shirt/tank top.

These models all have their own hustle and are doing what works for them. I’m here to encourage you to do what works for you! You may think you will attract bigger spenders with all of the fancy lingerie and expensive heels but I want to let you know that this is not always the truth. Yes, some members prefer that type of model, but you may be surprised at how many of them don’t.

I’m more like #2. Occasionally I’ll wear something fancy, but I NEVER wear heels. Okay, I did once and took them off after 10 minutes. Oddly enough I do best in a tank top and panties, and the occasional nice bra with matching panties set.

When I started out I was trying so hard to be like model number 1 but it just didn’t fit my personality. So much so that a few members pointed it out. The lingerie doesn’t match the girl – LOL! Don’t get me wrong, I will whip out the occasional show stopper lingerie set with garters and shit and my members enjoy it but then I go right back to being me 🙂 No joke, my top 3 highest earning days have been with shitty hair, a tank top or t shirt and panties (I keep those sexy though!).

My main point with this post is to encourage you to do YOU! If you are like model #1 – DO IT! If you are more like model #2 – DO IT! If you are nothing like either of those and are artsy, crass, into cosplay, nerdy, ghetto, laid back AF, whatever –  then do it! JUST DO YOU! You will be somebody’s flavor!Be Yourself, camgirl, wear, model

If you aren’t sure what your style is, try a few and see which one you feel more comfortable with! Your earnings and enjoyment of your shift will tell you everything!

Camming is not just surface appearances! It goes deeper than that! Camming is confidence and you being comfortable with yourself and comfortable with what you are doing. THAT is what makes the money! These guys can sniff out fake and awkward like a shark smelling blood. Don’t cheat yourself by putting up a front!

A Spouse/Partner Perspective on Being In A Relationship With Camgirl – Guest Blog – PART 1 – Trust & Communication

Okay ladies (and curious men), I brought my husband in to do a guest blog post for us. I thought it would be really nice to bring into view how being a camgirl MAY (everyone’s situation is different!) affect your partner and your relationship with your partner from their perspective.

This is HIS perspective and we have a very unique relationship which allows for us to enjoy the fruits of my (and his!) open mindedness and willingness to share intimate parts of myself with others to help secure a good future for the both of us moving forward.

__________________________________

Part 1 

Trust

So, your wife, and or girlfriend, wants to be a cam model, eh?

Well, it’s not a bad deal at all…if you as a spouse are prepared for it.
My wife is a cam model. I know what you’re thinking; how can I let thousands of men and women look at my wife in the most intimate of ways? It’s easy…trust. But, there are some things you should know about being a husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend of someone in this industry.
First off, if you are the type of partner that has to check your partners phone, emails, letters from home, whatever, then this is not something that is going to sit well with you and you should make your feelings known. Basically, if you’re not okay with thousands of people seeing your partner buck naked with dildos and lube flying all around the room right from the get-go, it’s not going to get better for you or your feelings about it.
If you are at ease right from the start but only have a little hesitance about how all this works (this is normal), you’re probably going to be just fine with your spouse bouncing on fake dong’s all day for cash. If you can be at ease, which I am, about the love of your life sharing herself with the rest of the world, it can be quite the lucrative adventure for the both of you. It just requires you to get out of your own way and let the money come rolling in. Let’s put it this way. I’m married to a top cam model. We have a bad month if she, say, makes 6 grand for that month of work.
Camgirl, relationship, trust
When she first started doing camming, I was curious as to how this worked and what could be made income wise from it. I was also worried about her safety as well. So when my wife first started this whole thing, I used to sit in the room with her just out of cameras view, sipping on a cold beer while I heard thousands of men carry on a conversation about how bad they wanted to fuck her. I watched her do what she does with me privately on a more amplified level of display. I used to laugh to myself, and with her, about how if that guy that just took her private only knew that her husband was sitting behind the laptop flipping through a magazine while drinking a beer.
After awhile, and after I knew how careful my wife is with our safety earning an income in this field, as well as after I realized how this all worked, I quit going into the room with her. Now the only clue for me to know that she is having a good income day is when I hear moaning and movement coming out of her cam room every five seconds. It’s the sweet sound of the savings account growing a little fatter.
As I mentioned above, trust is the key foundation, just like any relationship for any way of life is, that the two of you must have before venturing into this endeavor. Trust me when I say that your camming partner will see better looking options while camming than you. You must learn to accept that.
She will get hundreds of offers to meet up or even get paid thousands of dollars to just hang out with other men. You have to trust your partner to have her, and your, best interests at heart when these offers are made to her. IT WILL HAPPEN. My wife doesn’t meet any of these men or women. Most cam models do not either. Hopefully, your partner isn’t one of the few that take it outside of the camming world behind your back. That’s why rock sold trust is key here.
Trust, True Love, Camgirl, relationship
Communication

My wife and I have very good communication. That in itself creates more trust. She will tell me about every offer that she gets to meet, which guys and girls ACTUALLY turn her on (Yes fella’s, most of you couldn’t turn on a light switch. Remember, my wife gets paid to tell you that you’re a sex God), she tells me about the mild and disgusting requests she gets, and so on. She doesn’t hold back when she starts to tell me about her day.

Just so you know, I do not ask. I do not brow beat her about anything. My wife freely talks about her day just like most of us do that work in office’s or wherever. My wife camming and her talking about her day doing it have become so normal to me now that it’s no different if she was a plumber or something. You too will get that way if you have trust, real trust, between the two of you.

Effective Communication, relationship, camgirl, cam model
As I mentioned above, again, how can my wife and I allow her to be so exposed to people in the most intimate of ways? Besides trust, the first time my wife cammed it was a Sunday Afternoon. The first hour she cammed, she made one hundred and fifty bucks. This is when I started to notice that this was a legitimate way to earn an income. A damn good one too. I just had to step aside and let her do her thing. When I get home from work each day, my wife out earns me, on shorter shifts, usually 3-4 to 1. All it took was for us to trust one another and the rest has been taking care of itself ever since.
I will have more parts to discuss on this topic coming soon. Like how it affects your sex life and social life, along with some other things that you should be aware of before getting involved in this career path as a partner. Until next time!
_____________________________________________
I hope you enjoyed reading my husbands perspective! I know I did but I’m biased LOL! I look forward to his other posts 🙂
It’s very important to provide an outside perspective because camming does and will effect your relationships. You may think going into camming that it shouldn’t have much of an impact but it does. I agree with him 100% about trust and good communication being essential. Those traits are essential to every relationship, however need to be fully present and consistent moreso when a couple has a partner that is a camgirl/cam model (or any type of sex worker!)!

 

Types of Members – The Entitled Financially Well off Asshole

You will encounter many types of guys online while you are camming. They range from the “grey” (member with no funds) that parks in your room constantly and never adds money. To the “whale/unicorn” – most of whom are pretty damn nice and don’t say much oddly enough UNLESS they are the whales that take you private for 2 hours JUST to chat and hang out. They do exist! Then you will get this guy (maybe). I’ve had 3 of these and they are somewhat rare but they do exist. Like unicorns. Unicorn assholes.

I’d like you to meet the Entitled & Financially Well Off Asshole:

There is another type of “whale” that I want to give you a heads up about. This is the guy that starts out hanging out in your room with very little money and tips you a few bucks here and there – running his mouth the whole time. As annoying as these guys are sometimes if you humor them they can become quite lucrative!

They almost always try to start drama between you and another model or member, or they are rude to your other members but nice to you, and you debate getting rid of them. I had one guy do this to me for a few days – he then comes back into my room with almost $900, tips me $50, and then returns a few hours later with $3 to sit and chat and chat and chat. I ALMOST banned him. I actually hit the button to do so but didn’t confirm and let him remain however I started ignoring him a bit. I’m SO GLAD I did not ban him!

He spent almost $3K on me in 3 days after that and continues to spend a pretty decent amount on me a few times a week still, which is why I put up with him. When he pays my car payment in 10 minutes it’s REALLY hard to tell him to fuck off.

Dudes like this guy just LOVE to impress you with their money but are difficult to deal with because they are essentially pains in the ass. They act like the chatty freeloaders, say stupid shit, do mean things to your regulars like take you private after a huge tip from a very old very NICE regular and then laugh about it in private like you think it’s funny too. (Stupid fucker – all you did was piss me off). He then tries to make you work around HIS schedule – asking you to come online when it’s convenient for him, usually at really weird hours. It’s their way of trying to use their money to control. Don’t fall for it. Show him that YOU are in control and not desperate. Inaccessibility can be an advantage. More about that in a future post.

Also, he inundates your message box when you are offline…. Tells you what to wear, asks for free shit in free chat. <- That one REALLY pisses me off because you don’t want to give the cheap assholes in the room anything for free or have them misunderstand that all they have to do is ask for free shit and you will do it. I ALWAYS have to do damage control after this happens. Sometimes for DAYS.

These guys act like they own you because they’ve spent so much money on you. I think that’s the most frustrating part of it. And I NEVER let them have control which just makes them spend more oddly enough…… At least that has been my experience.

You will  likely have a dude like this (or 2 or 3+) that you will have to deal with. Just keep smiling through clenched teeth and take his money honey!

Typical Day on Cam – What To Expect – Part 1

I’m still giggling a little every time I read the title to this post. You can absolutely have a typical day on cam, however, the thing with camming is that everything can change in a matter of seconds. I’ll focus on the more redundant and mundane aspects of a day on cam that you can expect, anticipate and almost set your watch to in this post though.

Free Chat:

Guest: Hi BB – You start typing or saying hello to respond – Guest leaves.

Guest: Hi BB, Hru? (punctuation optional) – You: Great, hru? – Guest: Better now that I see you (or something excruciatingly similar) *shoots self in the face*. After about the 10th time of this you will become visibly annoyed when they say it unless you have really good “poker face”.

Guest: Show me ___ and I’ll tip/take you private/exclusive. This one pisses me off to no end and they almost always get a lecture on being a cheap asshole.

Guest: ASS/TITS/FEET/DO SOMETHING BB (Hello NEVER comes before this – they just come in and say this shit without so much as an introduction.)

Guest: Where are you from BB? Where do you live BB? (Why? Do you think I’m going to actually meet some faceless guy that is perusing a camsite with $0.15 in his account with an appallingly uncreative username referring to his massive penis?)

Guest: Make me hard BB (Well YOUR cock is in YOUR hands so how the fuck is this my responsibility in free chat – UGH!)

Guest: runs mouth (or fingers in this case I guess) filling up your chat box with boring nonsense and never tips you or takes you private.

Guest: (insert vulgar dirty talk publicly – tells sex story publicly) You: Can we talk about this/that in private? Guest: leaves or just keeps fucking talking.

Private/Paid Chat:

Guest: Takes you into paid chat with 1-3 minutes worth of funds without warning. You get 15 seconds into private and he starts demanding you show your pussy or cram a toy in your vagina immediately. Leaves 40 seconds into paid chat after clearing out an active and actually interesting chat room.

Guest: Pussy now BB You: 

Guest: Faster BB

Guest: Takes you private with 5-15 minutes worth of funds and 5 minutes in you are juggling 3 dildos (one hanging out of your mouth held by your lips because you are out of hands and you are annoyed enough you are gnawing on the tip of it and hoping he doesn’t notice),  one in your pussy and one in the other hand while pinching your nipples simultaneously, wiggling your ass, moaning his name and waving your feet at the camera because he has a foot fetish too. Cue circus music…..

Right. In. The. Feels.

Guest: Asks for something against site rules. You say no. He keeps pushing the envelope. You 5 times out of 10 have to ban his ass so YOU don’t get into trouble, and the other 5 they just leave.

Guest: Says nothing. Absofucking-lutely nothing. Could have anywhere from 1 minute to 2 hours worth of funds. Doesn’t say a damn thing or respond to questions so you just go into “auto-whore” mode and do the usual routine because you have no idea what in the fuck he wants/is thinking/or if he’s even watching you. This could go on for 3 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes (this has actually happened to me – asked him to type hello every few minutes or so to let me know he was there but his hands were busy).

Well?

Guest: You have a super nice session and towards the end or partway through he starts talking about meeting. You politely redirect the conversation/bluntly tell him no/keep dildoing ignoring the chat box and he will NOT STFU. 

I KNOW I am missing some here so expect a part 2 LOL.

Hair Extensions – My Experience with Microlink Strand Style

When I started camming I had about bra length hair. Very thin and very fragile. I had always hated my thin fragile hair and wanted to try hair extensions but never had the guts (I was afraid I would be judged because of them – women can be harsh!), a reason to or the means. Once camming started to really take off for me I decided fuck it, why not. I have nothing to lose (except a few hundred dollars) and if I hated them, I would just remove them. The constant blowdrying, brushing, and curling of my natural hair started causing a LOT of damage and I felt like if I let things keep going the way they were I would have to start cutting it off incrementally due to damage anyway.

My first experience with hair extensions was an impromptu decision to go into Sally Beauty and “see what they had” – AKA, I come out broke with a ton of beauty supplies that will take me fucking YEARS to go through (I have a bad habit with that store, they need an SBS Anonymous group). I bought 2 packs of the Satin Strands iTip extensions in 22″ length, a package of their  (waaayy too small for their iTips) micro links and this hook like tool. I used a pair of pliers from around the house to crimp the beads down onto the tip of the extension.


I spent 6 hours of my Thanksgiving Day installing the mother fuckers….. UGH! 

I have to admit – even though I did a shitty job the first time, and it was obvious I was wearing poorly installed extensions I noticed an increase in my income almost right away. It wasn’t crazy big but it was noticeable and I started getting compliments on my hair.

I decided to spend some cash and buy twice as many of the Satin Strands extensions and then have them professionally installed. HUGE mistake! I paid almost $400 for the install at a “professional – LOL” salon and $200+ for the hair and thennnnn….. My hair looked great until I started to itch like crazy and figured out what was up. The stylist apparently didn’t sanitize her tools and gave me fucking lice. Once I removed the extensions I was able to see how much of my hair she had ripped out while installing them. I went from bra strap length hair to not even shoulder length almost GONE hair. I was practically bald, I’m not kidding 🙁 After crying for HOURS about this and $600+ down the drain I had to just figure out how to do it by myself.

I decided I needed to find thicker strands that blended together beautifully and find hair that held up well to washing, blow drying and styling that would hopefully be easier to install. After spending (no joke!) a few HOURS on Amazon I ran across these! ZOMG! When they came in and I opened the package I was INSTANTLY in LOVE! They were 3 times thicker than the Satin Strands and were thick all the way to the bottom! They were CHEAPER, AND they matched my hair color almost perfectly! Hooray!

 

Installation was super easy (took me 3 hours for a whole head) with these new extensions, a good tool and the correct size of micro links. The hair looked more natural, felt stronger and held up better than the Satin Strands hair. They were easy to maintain and the glue on the tip wore out before the hair did! Awesome! I only had to move them up every 3-4 weeks and they looked great! A full reinstall was needed every 6-8 weeks but ONLY because the glue on the itip would get gummy, the hair was still in phenomenal condition.

So, basically I was able to save HUNDREDS of dollars a month by figuring out how to do this myself. The process definitely required a lot of patience but it paid off in the end 🙂

Self Care As A Cam Model – Recognizing Burnout

It’s very easy to get burnt out as a cam model. I’m actually writing this for you while in a deep state of burnout. Thankfully I am on my period so I’m getting a break from the source. This is the only time in my life where I have actually been HAPPY to get my period! Yay! No makeup, dirty hair, sweats and nobody demanding anything of me – it’s the most blissful time of the month. LOL!

The first question you may ask yourself is “Why is she still doing this if she’s so burnt out?”. Easy answer. The fucking money. When you start earning large amounts of money and set financial goals (which you must do to get the most out of this job!) you don’t really have a choice. You have to go online. BUT you have to learn to be more gentle with yourself during burnout so I use a different approach to camming when I’m burnt out. More on that in another post 🙂

Signs of Burnout:

  • Easily irritated.
  • Snapping at guests/members quickly when you see the same bullshit game trying to be played. I prefer to kindly tell them to fuck off instead of lashing out at them to toss their “dick into a blender cheap mother fucker”. BUT when the burnout bitch is in full effect……
  • Dreading going online with a dread similar to walking The Green Mile. Every little thing is a distraction before you finally login. Chipped polish, cats need water, hair isn’t perfect, the fridge needs to be cleaned out and maybe I’ll go detail the car because I haven’t washed it in 9 months because I’ve been online 14 hours a day…… Justifying anything else that needs to get done because you would rather just not today.
  • Sitting online quietly picking at your nails or fucking with your phone/music when you are normally pretty active and engaging. Frequent, deep sighs included.
  • Depression. I’m not kidding. Camming will stop being fun. You will sleep a lot more, sleep in late, blow off shifts to go to bed early. Every mean/douchebag/dickhead comment will cut you to your core instead of rolling off you like it usually does. Your give a damn will be non-existent.
  • You get new outfits or toys/hair done/tan/manicure etc. and you just don’t care – it doesn’t perk you up the way it used to. Doing your makeup becomes a chore and you would much rather just chill with your dirty hair in a pair of yoga pants watching a documentary on sliced bread then hear another “ur so beautiful bb” “can I see your ass/pussy/tits/feet before I take you private bb?” “want to meet and fuck me bb?”, etc…
  • Did you twitch just seeing BB – yeah, ur fucked LOL.
  • You will start wishing the guys would hurry up, cum and STFU even though you are in paid chat and are making money because you are that sick of them.You dream of some random guy just coming in, tipping you a shitload of tokens/gold and GTFO without saying a word so you can take some time off….
  • You start considering going back to your day job. You fantasize about a cubicle farm and not having to touch your pussy for 6 months……

Rest easy beautiful and REMEMBER to take time for yourself. You have to. Your hustle will go to shit if you don’t and you will find your income and placement will suffer. Yes, you may lose some cash but you will gain it back when you come back refreshed, happy and horny again! I promise! Your custies WILL miss you and they WILL come back and they will SPEND on you because of it. These guys can smell burnout like sharks smelling blood. Take care of you first so that you can take care of them…. mmmmm-kay?

Self Care As A Cam Model – Causes of Burnout

If you are just starting out as a cammodel I’m sure you are sitting there wondering how on EARTH one can get burnt out on camming. How can someone get burnt out being in their own home, having orgasms all day and making excellent money while doing it?! I assure you, this is VERY real and you will know it when you feel it! Sex work in any form tends to have a very high level of burnout.

Causes of Burnout:

  • Begaars/Freeloaders – Beggars will likely be a huge source of your burnout. You will be asked for free stuff all damn day. “Tits BB, Ass BB, Pussy in Free Chat BB, If you show me ____ first I’ll take you private”, etc, etc, HUGE fucking eye roll here….HUGE! These guys will wear you the fuck out. And it never, ever stops. It tends to get worse after the holidays and during the summer. Also, these dudes will compliment you to death and not pay a dime. As soon as they start complimenting you over and over just know you will not see a token or gold from them. And then there are the mother fuckers that just sit and stare without ever interacting with you.
  • Hearing the same shit. Every. Fucking. Day. Occasionally you will have a guest say something unique, but the longer you do this, the less it happens. The phrase that currently sends me almost homicidal right now is: Me: “Hru?” Dumbass: “Better now that I see you.”. UGH! STFU!
  • Constantly having to be “on”. If you cam long shifts like I do, you have to be “on” for so many hours a day that it becomes draining. You have to smile, flirt and be happy (which is not my norm personally,).
  • Physical burnout. Your body will get sore from long days. Your thighs will hurt, your shoulders and arms will hurt and if you have had a good day or two your pussy will be on fire.
  • Isolation. You spend all day in a room by yourself.Yes, you are interacting with people but this job is VERY isolating. Especially if you do not make friends with other cam models or have anyone to download your day onto or bounce ideas/frustrations off of.
  • Repetition. Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s almost always the same thing, the same request, the same show, the same dudes, day in and day out. When I first started camming the guys were pretty creative, it seems like less and less that I get creative shows with creative guys who want to have a good time physically AND stimulate my mind and I his.
  • Slow traffic/bad money. This will always burn me out the fastest. Slow days happen, but you still have to sit through them because you never know who will show up and make your day. When you have a group of guys that have spent all they are going to spend (you will learn to recognize this pattern in time) and just talk, talk, talk because you are stuck in free chat all damn day because it’s so quiet….. You will keep them around for entertainment purposes during the slow times, hoping they will spend again but they will more than likely just sit there and drain you mentally.
  • Trolls: Trolls are always there, and the really sad part is it’s usually a jealous model who is trolling you. More on trolls in a different post…….
  • Site drama and bullshit. When your site starts ripping you off, processing bullshit chargebacks and cutting your traffic when you get to a point that your commission increases – you will burn out quickly. You spend a lot of time trying to get to that 40%, 50% 60% cut and then they pull your traffic back to direct it to models at lower tiers this can be extremely deflating. It starts taking you 2-3 times longer online to make what you used to make at a lower tier. More hours+less money= burnout!

These are a few contributors to my burnout, yours may be different.

Biggest Cause of Burnout Right Here!

Camgirl 101 – Lighting, Music & Room Setup

LIGHTING:

Lighting and room set up are very important to the vibe you have and the paying traffic you will attract into your chat room! The better lighting and equipment you have, the more money you will make!

Admittedly when I started camming, I used a desk lamp and 2 floor lamps for lighting, yet still managed to be successful. Now I own a continuous light softbox set by Limo (on Amazon for $69) and noticed a sharp increase in paying traffic to my room when I installed them 🙂

The men want to be able to SEE you, of course! BUT, you don’t want to have so much lighting saturation that you look “washed out” either!

You earnings can certainly be affected by lighting placement and the “mood” that the lighting sets in your room.

Check out this wiki on 3 point lighting – SUPER helpful!

MUSIC:

Music is important to the mood of your cam room as well as lighting!

Obviously you would want to listen to any music you enjoy, but keep in mind that you are trying to set a tone that earns you money. Imagine if you were to walk into a bar/restaurant and they were blaring something that made you uncomfortable or that you absolutely couldn’t stand. You would leave? Right? The same theory applies here! Neutral music is the best option if you want to make money.

Volume of the music is important too. I have gone into a cam model’s chat room and have had to immediately click out because it was INSANELY LOUD!!  Not good! Always try to keep the volume low enough to where it can be heard, but is not overpowering. Often during privates I will turn the music down to where it is barely audible but can still be heard. This helps to deter would be assholes from recording your video with sound and reposting it somewhere else because they would be breaking copyright laws and could be sued by the artist.

FYI – my “go to” when I am camming is the Portishead station on Pandora. Be sure if you use Pandora, you either purchase the “Ad-Free” version for $4.99 a month OR set your geographic area to somewhere you don’t live for your safety 🙂 I also have a “Camming Playlist” on Amazon Music.

Make sure your music makes you feel good and you enjoy it, just be sure it’s tasteful! You wouldn’t be blasting ghetto gangster rap in the middle of a corporate office so don’t do it on cam! Remember, treat this like a job and you will benefit greatly!

This is no bueno if you want to make money!

ROOM SETUP:

Firstly and most importantly BE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE! However you choose to cam (in bed, laying down, sitting up, edge of the bed, chair in front of a desk, on the floor even!) always be sure you are comfortable and are displaying a flattering camera angle.

Be sure that what area the members can see is well lit, clean and inviting. Solid background colors work best, with little accents of color to provide interest. Keep toys out of view and stash some lube within reach but off cam just in case you need it!

Don’t be afraid to show off some personality either! Stuffed toys, posters, art, etc.! Believe it or not a good majority of the men that visit would like to see who you are, and would like to know about your interests because it makes their time with you a little more personal (which also keeps them coming back for more!).

Be sure to hide anything that reveals your location and/or has personal information on it. I personally have NOTHING in my room that will give anyone ANY idea of where I live, or places that I frequent. More about this in THIS blog post!

Don’t be that girl!

Provide a warm, inviting and comfortable room and I assure you, you will be rewarded for it!

 

Camgirl Myth – All Camgirls Are All Sluts

Oh boy, this is going to be a fun post, lol! This myth needs to be addressed for many reasons because I think this is a huge misconception about camgirls that needs to be addressed.

Are we more free with our bodies than a good majority of other people? Yes. I have absolutely no problem sharing my body visually with another human for stimulation purposes and being monetarily compensated for it. I’ve been a stripper AND a camgirl. I prefer being a camgirl because I really don’t enjoy having some gross drunk slob breathing all over me and trying to bite my nipples off. Or the frat boy that keeps trying to take me home so he can “fuck the tits off” of me. I just don’t enjoy being groped and fondled for 8+ hours. But, that’s just me. I hate people, lol. Especially when they can touch me!

For those of you women that do strip/escort I have nothing but respect for you! You put up with WAY more shit than I do! At least when I get tired of their shit I just log off and go soak in my tub or pet my cat.

Yes, as a camgirl more of you is exposed and you are being watched by an unknown number of people as you grope and fondle yourself into an explosive orgasm. I prefer this. Maybe it’s because I don’t like to be touched (with the exception of one special man). Maybe it’s because I REALLY like the money too 🙂 Maybe it’s because I have no fucks left to give. LOL. Either way, there is nothing wrong with being an exhibitionist. Absolutely nothing. Especially if it helps you get your bills paid and look forward to an early retirement!

Fuck yes!

All camgirls hook up with their customers or escort on the side. Um, yeah, wrong! I won’t speak for ALL camgirls of course – I am aware there are some that actually do and I don’t judge! Your hustle is your hustle! Get that money honey! BUT, there are a pretty good majority of us that are married, have life partners or are even *gasp* CELIBATE!

All camgirls have an insatiable sex drive. Ahem. Some of us may have more of a sex drive than most but honestly, by the end of a cam shift the very last thing I want to do is think about, talk about or have sex. I’m worn out! My drive to stuff my bank account full is stronger than my sex drive. Sure, I enjoy my time on cam and have great and often multiple orgasms but I am by no means insatiable 🙂

Me after a long cam shift…

We are all cheaters. This is far from the truth. Those of us that are involved in trusting relationships with our partners do not use this as a means to cheat. Some do and thats their prerogative but you cannot lump us all into the same pile. I am happily married and have no desire to be with anyone other than my husband.

But aren’t you helping other people to “cheat” on their partners?! That’s all about perspective. If someone is jerking off to me on cam while his wife is at work, it has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with him. If it wasn’t me he would just find another model or watch porn. I’m fine with my lights being on because he needs a quick wank. Also, basic male psychology – men are visual and crave variety. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t love his GF/Wife, it’s just visually stimulating for him and makes him feel good.

There is nothing wrong with being sexually open minded. Nothing! That doesn’t make somebody a “slut”. In my book, there is no such thing as a slut, just people who aren’t open about their sexuality judging those of us who are 🙂
