Before I started camming I would go into model’s rooms as a guest to experience things from the member’s side as well as try to learn the difference between a good camgirl and a bad camgirl. I wanted to learn everything I could!
I found a stunning model who looked bored and was playing on her phone. I felt bad for her and tipped her a few times and she just looked up at me, glared at the camera and looked back at her phone. I was completely gobsmacked. Keep in mind I had not started camming yet and was broke so that money was hard to let go of. That experience in itself taught me a lot.
I started visiting other models rooms and began tipping less off of looks and more off of personality. That is when I hit the jackpot with appreciative models, and in turn I learned a lot from them! I found a wonderful mature model with a great attitude that I respected and happened into her room one day when she was being trolled and harassed and I tipped her $10. She was so appreciative it almost made me cry.
ALWAYS say thank you, ALWAYS! No matter what size the tip. Positive reinforcement is good sales as well as good human behavior. Reward the positive and they will want to do it more! These guys need to feel they are receiving some sort of reward for their effort. You never know if the member is broke as fuck and that $1 tip he gave you is hard for him to do but he likes you enough to do it anyway.
Some guys may tip you small just to test the waters and see if you say thank you first. Make sure you aren’t some entitled spoiled brat. Some guys like that hustle but more often than not they want to see how you react.
You have to remember, not all of these guys are whales. Some of them are just average Joe’s busting their asses to survive and want to spoil a pretty woman, even if spoiling for them is $5 here and there. It does add up! I treat my less generous members with the same courtesy and interactions that I give my whales. You may lose the whales over time (they always end up coming and going – PUN!) but usually the guys that visit you frequently and tip a bit here and there usually stick around for the long haul and there may be a day where the guy that spends less comes in and surprises you and saves your ass.
He may just be cheap – being able to see that comes with time, the cheap one’s all kind of have the same M.O.. I thank them regardless because they didn’t have to tip me a fucking dime, but they did 🙂 I even thank the guys that try to tip $1 to see boobs. I tell them they need to tip more for that, say thank you and then they usually oblige me by tipping the full amount or they stfu and leave.
I’ve had a member that rarely tipped, and when he did it was a few bucks a day and then he came riding into my room with $300 and dropped it on me in 10 minutes. He still does this twice a week for about 2 months now! He said he likes to spoil me because he knows I APPRECIATE it and don’t act like a spoiled brat! Sometimes being nice to the “cheap” guys can pay off…….
Moral of the story – ALWAYS SAY THANK YOU! Oh, and by the way – THANK YOU for reading my blog!! *kisses*
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!
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 🙂
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 🙂
Prior to starting camming, I did a metric fuckton of research! I read blog posts, joined forums, watched videos and documentaries and I hung out in cam models chat rooms. I learned so much from these other models and was able to utilize their tips, tricks and tactics myself to become more successful!
Thank you so much to you other beautiful woman for showing me the way – you have changed my life – and that is what I am hoping to do for another beautiful girl with enough balls to take this on. Don’t doubt yourself gorgeous – you GOT THIS! I went from making $300-$500 a week to $10K-$14K a MONTH! It is possible!
Here is what I learned from reading, watching, and conversing with other models and what I have learned through application first hand! I remember watching my earnings jump up considerably when I started to apply the following to my camming:
TREAT THIS LIKE A JOB!You MUST be consistent! This is how you earn your cash and how you build a fanbase! Set a schedule and stick to it! Yes, things will come up or you may have a lot of things going on but do your very best to cam at certain times, or a certain amount of hours a day. Things come up, shark week, illness, emergencies – and if they do, make up your time! It’s easiest to do this when you can create some sort of ritual around it.
STAY MOTIVATED! You will have times where the last thing you feel like doing is dealing with freeloaders or shoving something in your pussy. It’s way too easy to not cam because you don’t feel like it. Excuses are like assholes – unless you are severely fatigued/depressed or pissed off plaster on that smile! I’ve had days where on cam was the last place I wanted to be and I threw on a smile and ended up banking! Do whatever it takes to motivate you! Think about those shoes you want, or those debts you are trying to pay off. Think about taking a vacation! Visualize yourself having/doing those things, you will notice your mood instantly changes if you do it right! Whatever gets your mind in the right place and makes you feel ready to play ball (or play with balls! LOL!). Turn on some music that really gets you pumped and dance around, do a shot (just 1 pretty girl – a drunk camgirl is no bueno!), do your makeup extra special or go buy some new panties 🙂
BE FRIENDLY! Unless being a bitchy dom is your niche, be friendly! When I first started camming I was terrified but was quickly put at ease by a few wonderful guys who knew how to have a conversation 🙂 Smile! Be sure you have a smile on your face as much as possible! Goof off, tell jokes! HAVE FUN WITH IT! You will make a few friends doing this if you have the right attitude! Nobody likes the stonefaced camgirl that just sits there on her phone and never says a word. Get to know your regular visitors and you may be rewarded handsomely by them 😀 Try to remember details about your guys, it’s a great way to build rapport and loosens their wallets.
BE RESPONSIBLE WITH YOUR MONEY!Pay your bills goes without saying, BUT always keep in mind that camming can be very unreliable! I have had weeks where I have made $6K and weeks where it was like pulling teeth to make $600. Same placement, same hustle with differing results. You are at the mercy of these men. Let that keep you humble. Pay off your debts and save as much as you can! When you get that first insane payout keep yourself in check. My first mindblowing check was equal to almost 2 months of pay from my previous corporate job and I had made it in 2 weeks! I cried when I saw that cash in my account I was so happy! BUT, the key is, I was responsible with it! I paid down some debt but also made sure to invest some of it back into camming.
BE CONFIDENT! Always be confident! If you hold yourself in high regard (not snobby please!) it will show! Have small boobs? No worries! A lot of men prefer small tits. A little extra weight? So what?! Some men prefer women with a little extra to love! Turn on that cam and know that you are worth every penny they give you! Know that you are beautiful and sexy and they will pick up on that! Confidence is FUCKING SEXY!! Not a confident girl, then fake it until you make it!
I know those 5 things seem really simple to do, and they are! If you put your mind to it and take camming seriously you can make really good money!!
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!
