I know that people who look at cam models may think that this shit is easy. We are lazy money hungry (well duh! who doesn’t love money?!) sluts who lay in bed all day and play with our pussies because we are too stupid to do anything else. I’m going to put that to rest right fucking now.
MYTH – Cammodels are lazy. I’m not saying this isn’t true for all cam models, I have seen some LAZY girls on cam. I’ve seen girls sleep, play on their phones all day, watch tv, etc…. But, the majority of the top models on the sites are far from lazy. We work our fucking asses off. We work long shifts doing very physical activity when we are in private. Free chat is where we relax or at least try to. LOL. This is a very physically and mentally draining job. Yeah guys, it’s a fucking job to us. We do this to pay our bills. Get over it.
Physically – Cam modeling can be quite physically taxing. Yeah, it’s not landscaping or construction work but it is physically demanding. If you think I am full of shit, masturbate for 45 minutes solid (furious masturbation – not this casually stroking and sitting on your ass stuff). Then spend 10 minutes talking to people you don’t really want to talk to, then masturbate another 15 minutes in 2-3 different positions, talk for 5-10 and repeat ad nauseam with a permanent plastic smile slapped on your face. Do this for 18 hours one day and consider that you have had a good day and spent a cumulative 10-12 hours of that masturbating. I guarantee you by the end of the day you are going to feel muscles you didn’t even know you had and the only thing that sounds good is a hot bath and your soft bed.
Basically you fuck all day. After you fuck your husband/boyfriend for 4 hours, your body is tired and your pussy is sore. This is no different. And you feel it the next day too when you go down the hall to your fuck palace and log in to do it all over again because you have bills to pay.
I have had cam cuties come in early in my shift, have me ride a dildo for 45 minutes and I am so worn out I almost have to call it a day. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but I’m not really sure how to ride a cock like a madwoman (I provide quality services! haha!) for 45 minutes and not feel it in my thighs.
Mentally – Mentally being a cam model can be so fucking draining at the end of the day that I just want to pour myself on the couch and not talk to anyone about anything. I want to watch mindless tv and eat gummy worms until I pass out.
Camming is (if your doing it right) a sales job and you have to strategize! I spend my whole day learning what makes my cuties tick and using it to my advantage. I spend my day coming up with dirty talk and scenarios on the fly because I am constantly being exposed to new fetishes and ways of doing things. I spend my day navigating freeloaders and learning to uncover new manipulation tactics that these guys use and outsmarting them. I spend my day trying to figure out how to get them to spend more and stay in private longer.
Aside from the sales/strategy game I play, I spend all day socially interacting with people. I am a highly sensitive introvert so this is extremely draining for me. I hate people. I hate talking. Maybe not the best career choice for my particular personality type however it is lucrative so I take one for the team and my bank account and paid off loans thank me for it.
Not all of the conversations are draining, I have had some very interesting and entertaining conversations with some of these men. I know I rant a lot about freeloaders/douchebags but you will have some intelligent, kind and interesting men to talk to, I promise. Those are the guys that make your day better.
However, having to be “on” all of the time can be draining. Please remember to take the time to care for your mental state while you are a cammodel. It’s crucial to your success. Know when you are done for the day mentally and cut your losses. You won’t provide a good experience for your cuties if you are burnt out. You will lose customers if you push yourself too hard. I have experienced this a few times, firsthand and now only log on when I am in a good mood and feeling energetic mentally. My earnings reflect this 🙂
Emotionally – You will experience emotional fatigue as a cam model. How so you ask? When you have all of these men telling you are beautiful/sexy/etc… Blah, blah, blah… You would think that would be energizing but it’s draining because you know that 90% of them are full of shit and say that to all the girls.
You will be trolled/verbally abused. This is a given. You can be the most beautiful and most kindhearted cammodel on the internet and someone will talk shit to you and try to knock you down. Especially if you are beautiful and kind. Men will talk down to you and will treat you like complete and utter shit. Expect this and learn how to block it out – or just troll them back! I find the ban hammer a wonderful tool for eliminating these guys. Just know that once you get rid of one, another is waiting in line. This is no different than working at a hospital and seeing blood. It comes with the territory, you just have to learn how to not let it get to you. Raging bitch on wheels? This won’t phase you at all 🙂
You will hear things/see things that will traumatize you. I once had a man turn on his cam when I had about 300 people in my chat room and he started slicing his hard cock with a razor blade. Not kidding. He was cutting deep and drawing blood. I was absolutely mortified and had to retain my composure in front of the other men in the room. I banned him and emailed support to let them know what he was up to. All with a smile on my face.
You will have pedophiles, you will receive death threats. You will have people tell you things JUST to watch your reaction. DON’T FEED THE TROLLS!
Overall, I do enjoy camming even though this post sounded like a rant most likely, it is the truth! Camming can be very enjoyable, and taxing. If you want to just lay around lazily and not talk to these guys, not give an amazing performance every time they click the private button and just expect them to throw money at you for just sitting there with your phone in your face you will short change yourself financially and are just wasting your time. Do it right, and you will be rewarded!
