I will never, ever forget my first cam shift. Ever. Not because it was bad, but because it was quite good! Terrifying but good, lol!
I decided to start camming on a Sunday, hoping it was slow so that I could get my feet up under me a little bit before I got really busy. Kind of like dipping your toes in the pool before you jump in. I always like to ease into new things so I was expecting to ease into this. Boy was I wrong, LOL! I had no idea how much attention my new girl status would bring, especially as I am sure that I looked like a deer in headlights and guys that were cammodel regulars could smell the new on me. I swear these guys can sniff out anything sometimes. Bad mood, tired, horny as fuck (occasionally!), grumpy, drunk… etc. They are like bloodhounds. If you are pissed as fuck and have a wonderfully plastic and composed smile on your face they will smell it and you will be wasting your time if you log in.
ANYWAY, I spent 2 hours getting ready. I shaved everything as smooth as I could get it, watched some makeup tutorials for makeup specifically related to photography on YouTube and did my hair perfectly! I was ON POINT! I set up the room with my overhead light, moved my bedside table to the end of the bed for my laptop and camera, put a desk lamp on my dresser, double checked it in the encoder to be sure everything looked good. Put on my best pair of panties, my best bra, grabbed my dildo and a small bottle of lube and logged into the site and started my broadcaster.
My pointer arrow hovered over that start broadcasting button for probably about 5 minutes until I found balls to actually hit it.
HOLY SHIT! Button hit and almost instantly names started appearing in the list next to my screen. The first “hi bb” popped up and I said hello, and then it exploded LOL. That first private started and luckily was short, lol. I was still trying to get used to the software so of course I flailed around for awhile, saying hello and getting an INSANE amount of requests for “ass bb” “tits bb”. Of course that day was my first lesson in freeloaders. LOL
I ended up in a show for almost an hour with a guy and gave it all I had. I was utterly exhausted at the end of it (you will learn how to pace yourself), and logged off to see how much I had made. I made $150 (my cut!) in just under 2 hours! I was completely gobsmacked and totally hooked! Of course my next 2 shift totaling 6 hours ended up netting me about $30 so I got a little bit discouraged but kept pushing on 🙂 I got my first lesson in how one shift can be vastly different from the next.
I think the first 30 minutes was the hardest part of the first shift. As if it isn’t hard enough you are trying to figure out the software, positioning yourself, and how to provide a good experience, you have a lot of manipulative guys that can tell you are new and are trying to get as much as they can for free. Camming can be overwhelming at first, but I promise you, you will learn how to do it! You will learn how to entice the guys to spend, you will learn how to avoid manipulative freeloaders and you will learn what your boundaries are 🙂
So, take a deep breath sexy lady. Put on those panties and don’t be afraid to give it a try! You may be opening the door to a new life you never expected!
