Being a Cam Girl In The Porn Tube Age

I talk a lot about how being a cam girl is a good idea for sugar babies, for the main reasons that (first) the time demands of each are very compatible, and (second) if you’re good at one, you’re likely to be good at the other. But I don’t spend nearly as much time covering the actual work of camming. So I want to take some time to discuss it here, and maybe help some people to succeed in the field.

What you’ll learn in this post:
1) Why cam girls are the new pornstars.
2) How to use the porn tubes to make bank.

First, let’s briefly go over the current state of the webcamming industry. What cam sites today basically are, are the evolution of “traditional” porn sites on the internet. You know how animals in the wild who face changing conditions have to evolve in order to adapt to those conditions? It’s been pretty much the same for online porn.

 

Why Cam Girls are The New Pornstars

There was a time when you could sell porn with at least some success, but as getting it for free has become easier and easier, making money off the stuff has grown harder and harder. It’s been especially bad over the past ten years or so, and just keeps getting worse. You know just like everyone else does: if you want porn, no matter what kind or from what genre, just run a quick Google search and you’ve got a high chance of finding what you’re after in under five seconds.

It’s kind of like trying to sell air: the shit’s everywhere and it is literally free, so why would anyone pay for it? Today, while there certainly are still some websites that try to sell old style porn pics and videos, they are either extremely rare (because they’re dying a slow, horrible death) or using some kind of gimmick to stay alive. Think of being a cam girl as exploiting one of those “gimmicks”.

Being a cam girl means being a pornstar

Essentially, being a cam girl is being a pornstar. You’re producing the porn live in front of its audience (and in fact recording it is actually a big no-no, not that this stops a lot of people), but it’s still porn. That’s not to say that all cam girls explicitly penetrate themselves or even get naked on camera, because some don’t. But there are performers in adult videos who don’t have to do anything but show their bare feet or sit in a chair fully clothed and order their viewers to jerk off, in order to gratify customers in their particular niche. It’s literally exactly the same for many cam models.

So how is it that cam sites are not only surviving, but flourishing today? I just got through saying they’re the modern pay-for-porn sites, and those are dying on the vine. Surely just seeing the girl that a man is whacking to on a live camera instead of recorded video can’t make so much difference that he’s willing to cough up cash. So what IS making that difference?

The same thing, it turns out, that drives the “free” business model used by most camming sites right now (the ones that try to set up a hard pay wall of one sort or another are, generally speaking, struggling by comparison). They don’t even try to charge viewers for the show, because that kind of content is so readily available for free. What cam sites have — and this is all the marbles right here — is personal interaction.

Cam girls thrive in the age of free porn because they provide that personal element that tubes can’t deliver.

When a guy sees a performer he likes, not only does he get to watch her do interesting and sexy things (whatever that may be, for him) to the point of getting him off, but he can actually talk to her before she does it, while she’s doing it, and after she’s done doing it. And he can talk to her about whatever; not just sex, but the kinds of everyday minutia that allow him to get to know her personality and interests. This creates the feeling of a real emotional bond, and even a friendship. Guys may love rubbing one out to Victoria June or Lana Rhodes, but they can’t hang out and chat with these women after they’ve zipped their pants back up, not even online.

The allure of being able to interact with the girls is so powerful for men that it makes them willing to not only pay for the show, but to pay for it even when they don’t have to. Voluntary tips (and paid private shows, salable content, and even online sugar daddies; but mostly tips) drive this business, and they make the difference between a thriving business and a website full of naked girls sitting in front of their computers for free.

Since the second kind of site wouldn’t stand very long on its own, that means that tips are the reason successful cam sites like MyFreeCams and Chaturbate exist as titans of the adult industry in an era of free porn.

 

Leveraging Porn Tubes as A Cam Girl

Still, let’s not talk down the current state of online pornography too much. It turns out that free porn can help you tremendously in being a cam girl. The major tube sites (the modern porn industry’s concession to the impossibility of charging directly for their product) are immensely popular, and they accept amateur content. You can win yourself huge exposure by simply recording your own explicit content, and uploading it to the likes of RedTube and Xhamster.

Upload to porn tubes and get more exposure as a cam girl.

You won’t get paid for the videos themselves (unless you get accepted into either the Pornhub or XVideos partner programs), but you’ll build a name for yourself in the adult industry. And take it from me: guys love, absolutely LOVE, interacting with cam girls whom they recognize for their favorite porn sites. Earn some fans for your videos, and they will endlessly adore you as a cam girl. This leads to great ease in building that valuable emotional connection with them, and in time, to monster tips.

So, let’s be clear about all this. Becoming a cam girl is about way more than just sitting in your public channel and diddling yourself with a bored expression on your quiet lips. Do that, and you’re (probably literally) better off selling cookies on the playground. You need a winning personality that engages with the audience in a fun and interesting way, which draws them in and gets them to like you personally.

You need to cross-promote, posting content on the porn tubes to get recognition and fans as an adult performer who will be delighted to see you and talk to you on your camming site. And above all, you need to remember why free porn doesn’t work anymore, and what exactly you need to do to succeed in the modern porn world working as a cam girl.

Obviously, you’ll also want to pick the best site to start on when becoming a cam girl. For most people, this will be either MyFreeCams or Chaturbate, but probably Chaturbate. It’s got such a huge army of loyal viewers at this point, the other girls there tend to be very friendly and helpful to newcomers, and the income potential is virtually unlimited when you do the job right. This is really the best place (out of many available options) to get started as a webcam girl.
