If you have a nice ass, big ass, etc. (and aren’t afraid to show it), angle your webcam and body so that your face is just out of view.  This position is great because you don’t have to waste any energy smiling or pretending to be interested:



If you have big breasts, you can show them off without working too hard and without your viewers getting bored.  The key is to position your webcam in just the right place so they can still get a feel for what you look like.  Don’t just sit motionless.  Viewers with a titty fetish will appreciate if you caress them, shake them around, etc:



The same principle works for guys.  It’s all about how you present yourself:



When members ask you to show them your face, you can give them a free peek.  But if they want more, tell them they have to tip or go private.

In my post Show Your Face, I talked about why it’s a good idea to let viewers see you.  But the above tips are a different school of thought: Don’t give them what they want unless they pay up.  This way you can be certain that your hard work doesn’t go to waste.  Just like Honey Dip Jay brought up in my last Q&A blog post:

“Don’t listen to the guy that says bend over show your butt get naked then I will take you to private because most of the time they are lying.”

Interview with New MFC Cam Girl, Honey Dip Jay /blog/2012/12/03/mfc-cam-girl-honey-dip-jay/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=mfc-cam-girl-honey-dip-jay /blog/2012/12/03/mfc-cam-girl-honey-dip-jay/#comments Mon, 03 Dec 2012 08:37:18 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1890 Todays’ post is another cam model interview.  This time, it’s with a new cam girl who goes by the nickname of “Honey Dip Jay.”  Jay is currently in college and has been camming on MFC for less than a month.

You mentioned that you just­­­­ started camming a few weeks ago.  What made you decide to do this kind of work?

I first learned about cam modeling while looking for a job on craigslist. My curiosity led me to research what cam modeling and the results I found were fascinating. I liked the idea that I can sit in front of the camera smile be beautiful talk to new people and make money at the same time. I didn’t fully decided to be a cam model until I stop working at my old job and couldn’t find jobs in my area that were hiring.  So I thought to try something new and exciting with my life and become a cam model.

How has your experience on webcam been so far?

My experience so far has been wonderful. It’s fun and vibrant, I’m not going to lie there are those moments when it can get dull when not many people are logging into my show. Also you can get a few annoying guys but when the room is full and I’m laughing and chatting with new people it’s very exciting.

Is this something you think you will do for a long time?  Or is it more of temporary job to make extra money?

For now it’s temporary so I can have extra money while I’m in college. But in a year from now if I see that I am getting more popular and I’m making more money I will continue for about another year or two but no more than 4.

In your email, you said you’re currently working on My Free Cams.  You also mentioned that you applied to both the LiveJasmin and iCams network.  I’m familiar with iCams, but I suspect that many of my readers aren’t.  How did you find out about this relatively unknown site?  And why did you choose this site?

I love to research so I came across a few articles talking about iCams. Also I follow a cam models vlogs on youtube and she also mentioned them and how she likes them. So that kind of made me go with them.

You go by the nickname of “Honey Dip Jay.”  How did you come up with this catchy nickname?

The name came out of the blue. I have no idea how it popped in my head but I love it and my fans like to call me there “HoneyDip”. By definition a honeydip is a girl that is fun and vibrant and also beautiful and that fits me perfectly. It also is a guy’s secret lover and that is what I think some of the customers would say that I am to them.

Which do you think is more important for camming, a good personality or a sexy body?

A great personality is the most important thing. A girl can look flawless but if she comes off as rude or boring no one wants to stick around for that. Looks alone can get you only so far in life.

Are you comfortable being yourself on webcam?  Or do you prefer to keep distance by switching on a webcam persona?

I’m myself for the most part. In free chat I’m just normal Jay smiling laughing joking and having fun. I give a little sexual tease here and there. But in private that’s where the other side of me comes out lol

What do you think is your greatest asset as a beginner webcam model?  In other words, what do you think your customers like most about your shows?

My regular customers have told me that they like my shows because I’m not like most models they run across. I’m not snobby always begging the guys for tips I’m friendly to everyone I always smile and bring a certain energy to my shows.

Do you have any beginner tips for aspiring models reading this post?

Don’t listen to the guy that says bend over show your butt get naked then I will take you to private because most of the time they are lying. Most important be yourself and do what you feel is comfortable and what you want to do in your shows. If one model is getting naked in free chat and playing with toys doesn’t mean you have to do that too. You will find that some guys will come to your shows and tip just because you are real and you are being yourself.

Is there anything else you would like to share with my readers?

Come follow me on twitter if you want to learn more about me and come see a show on MFC.

Special thanks to Honey Dip Jay for contacting me for the interview.  Please add her on twitter (@HoneyDipJay) and check out her My Free Cams profile.

Also, models interested in working on the iCams network will need to apply through Streamray.  Streamray is one of the largest webcam networks with models appearing on both their flagship site, Cams.com, in addition to their network sites including icams.com.

Finally, if you’d like some free model exposure, please contact me for an interview.

Fetish Webcam Model Job Review (FetishModels.com) /blog/2012/07/25/fetish-webcam-model-job-review/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=fetish-webcam-model-job-review /blog/2012/07/25/fetish-webcam-model-job-review/#comments Wed, 25 Jul 2012 07:56:11 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1593 Today I’m going to be talking about the relatively unknown webcam model job, FetishModels.  Whether it’s latex, pantyhose, or smoking, live fetish webcams is one of the most sought after niches on the net today.  Of course, fetish webcam jobs are nothing new — sites like LiveJasmin and Cams have been recruiting fetish models for years.  But what Fetish Models does differently is brand their site to fill an unsaturated, highly targeted niche.  In other words, people with fetishes will find this site, and they will spend a lot of money to satisfy their needs.

What’s most exciting about this network are the options given to models.  It’s a lot more than just “camming.”  Fetish, tattoo, and alternative models can be hired for TV shows, photo shoots, and video shoots, in addition to live webcam services.  So to all you kinky models looking for some extra attention, pay attention because an excellent opportunity exists right now.

Dominate On Cam

Every cam girl who does domination shows knows about the muscle and body aches.  There will be days where your vagina, butt, or both will be sore as hell from the dildo play.  Lots of people out there will have you believe that camming is all fun and games.  And it is, sometimes.  Enter fetish models.  Compared to your fluffy flirting and chatting, members will expect more from your show.  That said, you don’t have to go “hardcore” to make money.  And you can control your own limits and do only that which you’re comfortable with.  So if you’re performing a foot fetish show, then you might only have to play with your feet.  It all depends on what you’re offering.  Regardless, you will benefit from doing fetish shows no matter what site you work on.  (And if you’re already on LiveJasmin, then you really should consider creating a “Fetish” account.)

Model Commission

Money.  I guess this is the real reason any of us would even consider working on cam.  Fetish Models lets you decide how much you want to charge for private and recorded shows.  You choose anywhere between $1.99 and $5.99 per minute.  For recorded shows, you can upload them and make commission every time someone purchases your clips.  So you can literally make money while you sleep.  Payouts are made on the 1st and 16th of each month.  Payment options include check, wire transfer, direct ACH bank deposit, Paxum, or Payoneer.

Network Sites

When you become a fetish model, you are given the option to become your own internet business owner.  Below are the main network sites that you will be working with and what each site has to offer.  Please note that other than the actual cam modeling, uploading videos and running your own pay site are optional.

Fetish Girls

FetishGirls.com is the web’s #1 fetish webcam and movie clip site.  You can upload and sell your videos and photos, even if you’re offline.  Each time someone buys your stuff, you get paid.  You can also receive tips and gifts from registered members, in addition to your paid private shows.

Fetish Network

If you’re serious about your online modeling work, then you should consider having your own network site.  The staff will work closely with you to create your own unique, high-quality pay site.  Everything you need to get your site off the ground will be provided.  This includes creating, marketing, and maintaining your own custom site.  All the technical aspects are handled by their team, including website hosting and accepting payments from members.  All you have to do is upload your videos and photo sets.

Cash Fetish

Here’s where things go from “camming” to “business.”  CashFetish.com, which is another site you will be working on (if you choose so), lets you create a Wishlist of items.  Basically, members can visit CashFetish.com, have a look at your profile, and buy some cool stuff for you like perfume, lingerie, or sunglasses.  You can easily add and remove items as you wish with each purchase going directly to your Fetish Model account.

How To Become a Fetish Model

To getting started on the #1 fetish modeling network, you will need to click on the “REGISTER NOW!” found here.  Fetish Models is the only site dedicated to exclusive fetish cams.  One thing to consider is your experience level.  If you’re new to camming, I recommend that you first try out a beginner-friendly site like LiveJasmin.  LiveJasmin has a huge Fetish category and it’s quick and easy to get started with their Easy Registration Form.  (On another side note, if you’re looking to perform anything fetish, don’t bother with myfreecams.com as they seem to favor the obedient puppet girl over the independent fetish performer.)  Whatever you choose, domination and fetish shows sell everywhere.  So if you’ve been looking to show off your kinky side, you now know the go-to-place for lovers of whips, chains, and fetish cash.

Interview with Streamate Model Emma Lovett /blog/2012/07/24/streamate-model-emma-lovett/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=streamate-model-emma-lovett /blog/2012/07/24/streamate-model-emma-lovett/#comments Tue, 24 Jul 2012 08:34:51 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1578 I recently caught up with Streamate model Emma Lovett.  Emma has been camming for about 10 months on various cam networks, both as a solo performer and a couple with her husband.  In her email, she said “this is what I was meant to do!”  After reading her 5-star member reviews on her profile page, I knew she would make a perfect addition to my Cam Model Interviews.

In this Q&A, she talks about how she and her husband got started in webcamming, and how she was able to quit her regular 40-hour/week job and double her salary with what she calls “the easiest job in the world.”


How did you first learn about webcam modeling jobs?

My husband would regularly look for modeling jobs or administrative work on craigslist. He had seen some ads that mentioned webcamming but I didn’t take it seriously. I never really thought I could do that and not be creeped out by it. Eventually we stumbled across the MFC wiki page and started reading about webcamming. It seemed like a great way to make a bit of money, which we desperately needed. I decided to give it a try since hubby was cool with it and everything.

Why did you decide to become a cam model?

Initially I just wanted to try it out. I’ll be honest we were sort of struggling a bit and barely making ends meet. The first time I did MFC my husband and I had our doubts about the legitimacy of the whole thing. We thought it might be a scam and it wasn’t real money we were making, it was just too easy. I made $1800 in my first two weeks and when I got that first paycheck and it was REAL money…I was hooked! I was used to working my ass off for 40 hours a week and getting less in a month than I did in two weeks camming. And all I was doing was smoking weed, being silly and the occasional striptease.  This was the original Emma Show and simply consisted of me being loud and annoying, jumping around my apartment chasing my cat and naming things. But people loved it… for a while anyway.

What do you enjoy most about this work?

There is so much about this work that I absolutely love. First of all, I love being my own boss. I love not having any responsibility. I can work when I want, for as long as I want, if at all. I’ve been fired from a job for being late one time because I was hungover. That can’t happen with my current profession. I can go out any night wake up in the morning and if I don’t feel like working, I don’t have to. And that’s extremely liberating. Besides the freedom, it is in my blood to entertain and I feel the most alive with an audience. I truly enjoy meeting people online and putting on a good show for everyone. I was born to entertain!

What is the most difficult thing about being a camgirl?

Honestly, this is the easiest job in the world. I know this doesn’t hold true for everyone because we’re all different but for me personally, I was born to do this. I love my work. I love buying cute outfits, I love decorating and staging shows, I love doing my social media and I even enjoy the great feeling of accomplishment after doing a bunch of paperwork and calling a million phone numbers. But if I had to pick something that I feel is more difficult it would be dealing with a huge crowd. When there are a lot of people in a show and they’re all talking and trying to get your attention it’s really hard to read everything and please everyone. You sort of have to skim through all the text, recognize what or who takes priority and respond to it appropriately. So even though it’s the best job in the world, there are times when things get challenging but who doesn’t love having tons of people in their room!

You mentioned that you also do couples shows.  How does performing with another guy compare to doing solo shows?

Well I started with The Emma Show on MyFreeCams which is just for girls and it was great. MFC was my introduction to the industry. Unfortunately, that website has a camscore function which sort of dictates how much traffic you get in your room and once I let that drop it was pretty much over. The first day that I got on for two hours and made no money I switched to Streamate. Streamate allows a couples show and I was already doing skype shows with my husband when I was on MFC. So it seemed natural for us to just have our own camshow together. Performing with my husband has not only proven to be far more lucrative and stable as a business path but has also made us a lot closer. We have a fantastic relationship because we live our dream. All we ever wanted to do was be together and that’s hard to do if you spend 8 hours each day apart. But now our job is to love eachother and interact in fun and new ways. It’s made us a lot stronger as a couple.

Have you had any bad experiences with clients?

You have to deal with hecklers, it’s part of the job as an entertainer. But that’s why they invented the ban button. Anytime I feel a person is creating a vibe that detracts from the energy I’m trying to put out or takes the “Emma” out of me, I ban them instantly. I’m getting really good at this process actually. I can usually spot a bad apple before it even gets rotten. Don’t get me wrong I let people make fun of me and stuff because I’m so obnoxious its expected. It’s hard not to make fun of me but if people don’t do it in a fun loving way its very obvious and they get banned. I’ve also had a guy from Mexico convince me to send him videos in exchange for items on my Amazon wishlist and never got anything. But I’m fortunate and the vast majority of people I encounter are genuinely kind people and I truly have a brighter outlook on life having met a lot of them.

Do you tell friends and loved ones about your online work?

Well my biological family disowned me when I married my husband at 18 so his Mom is really our only family and she knows what we do. We’re very open and comfortable with Mom and I’m sure she loves having her bills paid by us for a change considering we used to live in her room. We’re also honest with our friends and even strangers about our work. As far as our friends go everyone is insanely jealous that we make such a great living and work so little. In fact we’ve already helped a few of them get into the business. So yes we do tell people about our work because it’s what we do and it’s what we love doing.

What advice would you give to a friend who is just getting started as a webcam model?

Don’t go at it alone. I’ve had my husband by my side every step of the way and I couldn’t imagine doing it without his help. I think of my job as a reality tv show and it takes a crew to run a show. It’s also a lot more difficult to deal with the business side of things alone. My husband is my agent, manager, technician, lighting guy, sound guy, and co-star all rolled into one. If you’re a single girl my advice is to find a friend you can do it with. This will make it more sexy and fun and two girls are always better than one(:

Is there anything else you would like to share with my readers?

Yeah come check out the Emma and Eddie Lovett show! Hahaha(: But on a serious note I’d just like to thank all my fans who watch my crazy life unfold every day. You guys are my inspiration. Also I’ve only been doing this for about 10 months so I’m not a seasoned vet in the industry or anything. I’d love to do another interview 6-8 months from now after things really develop. I’m currently working on a blog and website and if you wanna keep up with Emma you can find me on twitter (@LovettEmma), add me on facebook (emmalovett92) and check out my tumblr (emmalovett.tumblr.com). Oh and if anyone plays skate on xbox my gamer tag is LOVE FLUFFFFF. That’s fluff with four F’s haha!


It’s clear from this interview that Emma “gets it” when it comes to cam modeling.  I would like to personally thank Emma for taking the time to help me with today’s post.  Models interested in working on the Streamate network of sites can sign up through their model recruitment site Internet Modeling.  And if you are a current model looking to share your experience, please contact me.

Hiding Your Webcam Model Job /blog/2012/06/05/hiding-webcam-model-job/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=hiding-webcam-model-job /blog/2012/06/05/hiding-webcam-model-job/#comments Tue, 05 Jun 2012 05:35:04 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1571 There may come a point in your webcam model career when you are ready to say goodbye to your 9-5 day job and work online as a full-time cammer.  When this happens, people will ask you about your new job.   It’s important to not only expect this question from family and friends, but know how to answer it in your best interest.

There are several ways to go about this.  One option is to simply be honest.  If you are secure about yourself and comfortable about your work, then you have no reason to hide.  That said, I suggest you hold off being honest with people until you’ve given it enough time to know if the job is right for you.  It’s not a perfect job, but it can be incredibly lucrative if you got the body and personality for it.  Be prepared for negative responses.  Some people will be envious of you.  Others will look down on you (see my post on Webcam Performer Or Online Prostitute).  But never forget that comments from critics can’t affect you unless you allow them to.

Of course, not everyone who becomes a webcam model is thinking “career.”  Many just want an alternative way to pay the bills.  If you fall into this category, it’s best to keep your online work private.  This way, you won’t need to worry about anyone treating you any different than the person you already are.

Here’s a typical conversation that you might encounter:

Them: “Hey, I heard you quit your job.  So what are you doing these days?”

You: “Actually, I work online from home.”

Them: “What?”

You: “Yeah, it’s basically a customer service job excect I can work whenever I want.  Actually, it’s pretty easy work and it pays pretty good.”

Them: “What exactly do you do?”

You: “I do freelance work for various sites.  I first got started at workingsol.com but there are tons of sites out there if you do your research.  Another site I’ve been working on quite a bit lately is demandstudios.com which is a freelance writing site. ”

There are many sites you can use to replace the above examples depending on your personality and skills.  Another great resource site for all you single moms is WAHM.com which stands for “Work At Home Moms.”  Whatever site you choose, make sure you look into them first so that you’re prepared and actually know what you’re talking about.  If they keep probing questions, get a piece of paper and write the websites down for them.  This shows them they need to do their own research and also proves that you’re not bullshitting them.

Keep your answers short and to the point.  The sites that you are giving them are all real jobs, and normally they won’t drill you anymore after this point.  But if they ask, “Can you get me in?”, tell them that they need to apply themselves at the site in question.

The last option is to be economical with the truth.  Tell them you work online and get paid for chatting and flirting with guys.  “Yeah, it’s great!  All I do is chat with horny guys and they pay me big bucks.”  Livejasmin does have a non-nude chat category, so technically you’re not really lying.

Bottom line, to tell or not to tell is something only you can decide.  As a general guideline, don’t tell anybody until you’ve tried it out for at least a month.  Some friends will surprise you with their ignorance — and others with their open-mindedness.  Just remember that who you are doesn’t change no matter what you do for a living.

LiveJasmin and CameraBoys Registration Tips (2012) /blog/2012/02/23/livejasmin-cameraboys-registration-tips/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=livejasmin-cameraboys-registration-tips /blog/2012/02/23/livejasmin-cameraboys-registration-tips/#comments Thu, 23 Feb 2012 09:24:27 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1554 Time sure does fly.  I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I first reviewed the LiveJasmin and CameraBoys webcam jobs.  Since then, I’ve reviewed Internet Modeling, iFriends, SakuraLive, Sexier, HomeCams, and Flirt4Free.  It’s now 2012 with new adult cam sites popping up left, right, and centre.  Over the coming months, I plan to review Cams, 5PointsModels, MyFreeCams, and Fetish Models.

In today’s post, I want to clear up a few things about LiveJasmin and network sites CameraBoys and MyTrannyCams.  I understand some of you reading this are still undecided about whether or not webcam modeling is right for you (read my very first blog post Becoming a Webcam Model — The Untold Truth).  For those of you who follow me on my blog, you know that LiveJasmin is my #1 recommended site for beginners.  That’s not to say it’s the “best” site for everybody, only that new performers make more money (on average) on the LiveJasmin network.  For new male models, I recommend CameraBoys, which brings me to the first point I want to clarify.

New male performers have asked me whether they should register at LiveJasmin or male webcam model CameraBoys site.  The fact is that whether you sign up through LiveJasmin or CameraBoys makes no difference; ALL new male livejasmin webcam performers will now appear on LiveJasmin AND CameraBoys under “Boy” and/or “Gay.”

For transsexual performers, MyTrannyCams is the most successful live TS network.  To become a transsexual webcam model on MyTrannyCams, you will need to sign up through the LiveJasmin registration page.  Transgender webcam models appear on both MyTrannyCams and the “Transgendered” category on LiveJasmin.

All new LiveJasmin Performers must submit two photo ID copies, one with only photo ID and another with your face and ID.  LiveJasmin requires that your photo and identification details are eligible.  Unreadable photo IDs are rejected.

Once you submit your photos, you are registered.

Here are here are some LiveJasmin and CameraBoys tips for AFTER you register:

Make a good first impression

Your first minute in free chat will be recorded and used as your profile teaser.  Since this teaser will be used for members in free chat, there is no nudity allowed.  Try to make a good first impression by showing off your best features and using seductive camera angles.  If you’re not satisfied with your teaser, you can change it in your profile settings.

Upload a variety of photos

Make at least 6 photos for your profile gallery.  Mix it up with a variety of angles and positions to get more customers interested.  It’s also a good idea to both non-nude and nude photos that show off your sexiest attributes (personality, face, breasts, ass).

Start building a following

When you first start at a webcam performer, you will be placed in a promotional period at a discounted price of $0.98/minute.  This promotion period lasts for 4 hours in private or 4 hours in free chat, whichever comes first.  This promotion period is a way to build your regular customers and start making money right away.  After this period, you can set your own cost anywhere between $1.99 and $3.99 per minute.  This is where you can really make some serious money.  (Read my How To Get More Minutes in Private Shows, 4 Mistakes LiveJasmin Performers Make in Free Chat, and Give a Great Private Show!)

Set your schedule

You are free to chat any time you like, though it’s best to shoot for 8pm-2am EST (peek hours for English speaking members).  Also make a point to set your schedule on your profile.  By failing to do this, you are missing out on potential customers who had viewed your profile but didn’t know when to find you online.  Consistency matters.  And when you do go online, try to stay for at least 90 minutes since it can take up a while for things to get busy.

To get started with the world’s #1 most visited video chat site, fill out this LiveJasmin Easy Registration Form. Also, if you run into any problems with the registration process (or if you have any questions or concerns about webcam modeling in general), feel free to contact me.

Flirt4Free Webcam Job Review (Video Secrets webcam4money.com) /blog/2012/02/22/flirt4free-webcam4money/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=flirt4free-webcam4money /blog/2012/02/22/flirt4free-webcam4money/#comments Wed, 22 Feb 2012 14:01:48 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1504 There seems to be a lot of confusion about the Flirt4Free Webcam Model Job.  At one message board, one model complained about the low commission saying that “F4F is just super greedy!”  Yet on the same forum, another girl said “they do have among the highest $ per minute so you get more for less work.”

The Flirt4Free model registration page doesn’t give you all the details you need.  And despite being one of the biggest live networks, information was hard to come across online.  Like most webcam jobs, models are left in the dark until after they sign up.

The Video Secrets Network

First, the basics:  Flirt4Free is the flagship site of Videos Secrets — one of the largest adult companies online today with a network of sites running strong since 1996.  Flirt4Free offers Live Girls, Live Guys, and Live Shemales.  Webcam models apply through the registration site Webcam4Money.  Once registration is approved, your profile will be placed on the Video Secret network of sites including Flirt4Free.

What Makes Flirt4Free Different

Flirt4Free focuses on providing the best customer experience.  Visitors to the network are more likely to register and purchase credits for live shows.   As one camgirl mentioned:

They do pay less % wise, but the customers are quality (long shows yay!)”

Just like any job, there is more to consider than just commission.  Here’s what another camgirl had to say about the Flirt4Free webcam job:

“I do like to setup and their webcam models area is nice to connect with other models. Also, they had trips and stuff to meet. The sense of community is a cool addition…..felt like a “real” employer.”

Model Commission and Payment

First of all, you will not be flirting for “free.”  You will earn money when customers spend credit on your private shows, recorded shows, as well as tips and bonuses.  Customers pay between $3.00 and $15.00 per minute for live shows.  This is the highest per minute rate that I know of.  You get paid 22.4% to 26.66% of what your customers pay you.  So although Flirt4Free members pay the highest rate per minute, models are paid the lowest % commission.

Similar to LiveJasmin and CameraBoys, Flirt4Free has a tipping system in both Free Chat and Private Chat.  Tipping can account for 20% or more of a model’s revenue; this alone is a good source of motivation to provide a high-quality experience for your visitors.

Recorded Shows

Flirt4Free will record ALL of your live sex shows.  This is either an incredible bonus or a reason to worry, depending on who you ask.  After a private show, it becomes available to registered members as a VOD purchase.  This means that even after you log off, you get paid every time a member watches your recorded shows.  This feature makes it possible to literally make money while you sleep! Keep in mind that you will NOT be paid for your recorded shows after you close your account with Video Secrets.  If you do decide to quit, you will need to send them a request to have your VODs removed.  (There have been model complaints about recorded shows not taken down even after they closed their account.)

LiveJasmin Performers, Think Like a Porn Star! /blog/2012/02/21/livejasmin-performers-porn-star/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=livejasmin-performers-porn-star /blog/2012/02/21/livejasmin-performers-porn-star/#comments Tue, 21 Feb 2012 07:34:51 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1495 When most LiveJasmin performers and webcam models think about camming, they think of going online to flirt, strip, and deal with abusive jerks:  just put in the time, ignore the haters, and collect your paycheck.  The models who’ve really “figured it out” will earn their living without even taking it the stripping level (read my interview with “Never Nude”).  It just goes to show that successful webcam models come in many forms — this isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of job.

I’ve always pushed the idea that your personality is your most important skill in selling private shows.  But it’s also true that webcam models who ACT like dirty little sluts also do very well in the private room.  I’ve received a couple emails from porn stars looking to make the transition into the adult webcam world.  Not surprisingly, they had no problems making the transition.

If the idea of getting online to perform makes you nervous, you’re not alone.  Your webcam is turned on.  You’re looking your sexiest.  And you’re about to be taken into private where you will be told to perform sexual acts by a random stranger online.  Assuming you’re performing solo, you are safe in the comfort of your home, yet the free chat room makes you feel as if you’re performing for an audience!

A good idea for any new webcam model is to think like a porn star.  Underneath all the social programming and religious bullshit, lies an inner slut completely uninhibited and waiting to be liberated.  I don’t care if you’re a guy, girl, straight, or gay, we are all sexual creatures.

So how do you act like a porn star in front of your webcam?  Release your “Inner Slut.” That’s how!

Of course, this is only webcam modeling.  Your job is to simply “act” like a slut.  Here’s some porn star behavior that will convince your customers that you are worthy of their money.

Eye Contact

Sexy eye contact can be extremely arousing!  When you’re online, you should be looking directly into your customer’s eyes.   That is, look into your webcam.  This will make him feel like you’re “together.”  Make sure your webcam is set close enough to your bed or wherever you perform to make him feel “close” to you.  From time to time, lean in towards the camera and lick your lips and give him a kiss.  Do this as if he’s right in front of you.

Voice Tone

Speaking slower is sexier.  Deliberately slow down your voice as if you’re talking to your boyfriend/girlfriend at the most intimate times.  As you get more excited, your voice tone should reflect this.  Moan as you continue to excite yourself.  As excitement escalates, so should your breathing and moaning.

Dirty Talk

Dirty talk is one of the webcam model’s most powerful tools.  A camgirl or camboy who knows how to effectively use dirty talk can earn more money with less effort.  There are no limits to how far you can take it, though it’s good to start off slowly and build it up:

  • “I’m getting so hot and horny right now…”
  • “I haven’t had my pussy pounded for way too long…”
  • “I want you to fuck my little ass, Daddy!”
  • “Treat me like the dirty little slut that I am!”
  • “I want you to shoot your hot load all over my face!”

Combining effective dirty talk with seductive eye contact and body language is VERY hot.  Don’t be surprised if you double your time in private chat using these techniques alone!

Orgasm

Whether you fake your orgasm or not makes no difference.  What’s important is your perceived pleasure.  One way you can extend your time in private chat is to extend your fake orgasm.  Just when he’s thinks you’re about to cum, tell him:

  • “Baby, I’m gonna cum soon…” (continue to masterbate)
  • “Baby, I’m going to cum so fucking hard…” (continue to masterbate)
  • “Oh God…fuck…” (moan and masterbate more)
  • “Baby, you gonna cum with me?” (make strong eye contact and continue to masterbate)

If you’re performing on LiveJasmin, you already know you get paid per minute.  And once you’re about to orgasm, there’s almost zero chance they will stop paying you at this point.  Build up slowly to the orgasm and extend it as long as you can.

Guys have an added level of difficulty here since it’s harder to fake orgasm.  Your goal is to keep erect and have them believe you are just about to shoot your load:

  • “I’m getting close…”
  • “Oh God, I can’t take it much longer…”
  • “God, I want to cum so fucking bad…”
  • “It’s coming…oh fuck…”

Then when you do cum, keep the show going!  Now is the perfect time to extend your private time with some “cum play” for your customers.

Bonding

Many customers will stay in private even after your sex show is finished.  They may want to ask you questions and get to know you better.  Now you can give them the “girlfriend experience” (or “boyfriend experience”).  This bonding time AFTER your sex show could mean the difference between a one-timer and a repeat regular client.  Not every guy is only interested in sex.  Many will want to chat afterwards as well.  If you can make him feel as if he’s your favorite, there’s a good chance he will be back.

Webcam modeling is all about the details.  And you don’t have to be a porn star to become a successful webcam performer.  With practice, you’ll start developing your own style and techniques.  And as you continue to build your sexual confidence, you will notice yourself enjoying your online work more.

HomeCams Webcam Job Review /blog/2012/02/01/homecams-webcam-job-review/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=homecams-webcam-job-review /blog/2012/02/01/homecams-webcam-job-review/#comments Wed, 01 Feb 2012 07:01:06 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1475 One of the biggest complaints I get from webcam models is spending too much time in free chat without pay.  It’s too bad there wasn’t a site that would pay you every hour so that you would never waste time…

It might surprise you that there actually is a site just like this.  The site is known as HomeCams.  It hass only been around since 2010 so it hasn’t had as much exposure as other sites.   Despite being new, it boasts an impressive 3+ million visitors per month! But the real beauty lies in their guaranteed payout system.  Pay attention because the HomeCams webcam job is unlike any other site I’ve worked on.

HomeCams uses a payout system that guarantees a minimum fixed hourly wage for new models (first 100 hours).  In other words, no more spending time in free chat without pay! New cam girls are guaranteed $7/hour, male models get $6/hour, and couples get $9/hourTo qualify for the guaranteed “base salary,” you need to fill out your model profile page (including pictures), work a minimum of 6 hours/week, and must average 25 tokens/hour.  Private Chat rates go from 10 to 25 tokens/min, so you only need to do few shows to be in the guaranteed system.

Now you might think that $7/hour is too low, but keep in mind that the rates above are your minimum base salary ONLY.  After you earn more than your base, you will be paid 40% commission for ALL your private shows — a higher than average model commission.  And when you refer new customers (from social network sites like Facebook and Twitter, for example), you will get 80% of the total amount billed to your referred customers!

How Does It Work?

HomeCams offers several chat modes, including “Free Chat,” “Members Only Chat,” and “Private Chat.”  You can block free chatters and focus on multiple paying members in “Members Only Chat” or you can earn money 1-on-1 with the high rollers in “Private Chat.”  They also have a unique “Hardcore Themes Show” where you are paid a fixed rate (up to $200) for each performance.

In order to maximize earning potential, you will appear on the entire HomeCams network of sites, including PrivateFeeds, their original site and one of the most popular live cam sites today, as well as 14 niche sites (if category matches) including VIPcams, RealLiveGuys and AllManCams (guys, gays).  You have the option to block your country or specific state/province (US and Canada) so you can block your area without losing out on the entire US market.  You can also block specific sites within the network.

How To Register?

Registration is free and will only take 10 minute.  In most cases, you can start working 2-3 hours after you create your account.

STEP 1 – Visit the model registration page.

STEP 2 – Enter a nickname, password, and email address.  Click “Create My Account”.


STEP 3 – On the next page, fill out your payment details.


STEP 4 – Submit a copy of your photo ID (must have full name and date of birth).  Click “Save & Continue”.


STEP 5 — Submit model release form and “Confirm”.

Once your application is approved (usually within a few hours), you can start working right away with a guaranteed hourly pay and 40%-80% commission.  Enjoy! :)

Interview with “Never Nude” Webcam Model /blog/2012/01/30/interview-nude-webcam-model/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=interview-nude-webcam-model /blog/2012/01/30/interview-nude-webcam-model/#comments Mon, 30 Jan 2012 07:15:15 +0000 Luke Madison /blog/?p=1466 I’ve gotten numerous emails asking me about the Non-Nude category in LiveJasmin.  For those of you who don’t know, LiveJasmin has a “Hot Flirt” (no nudity) category.  Beginner webcam models often want to know if they can earn a lot performing as a “Non Nude.”  Usually I tell them to avoid this category simply they won’t make as much money. Or so I thought!

I caught up with a webcam model (she prefers to remain anonymous) who was kind enough to answer my questions about working as a non-nude webcam model.  I would like to personally thank her for taking the time to help me out.  She calls herself “The Number One Never Nude.”

In this candid Q&A, she talks about her experience as a non-nude camgirl and shares some valuable advice for new models.

How did you first get started in the webcam business?

I have been on a webcam since I was 14 years old, dancing around for fun and chatting with friends. When I turned 18, I found out I could get paid to do the exact same thing, without getting naked or doing anything sexual. I said,”Why not?” and started getting paid to play the piano on cam. I learned how to make the real money, and what it was all about as I continued on a site called “Cam Pals.” The name “CamPals” even made me think it was just about being paid to be friends with people online.

What was your first experience on cam like?

I had fun. I was used to being on cam for 4 years already, so I just did what I was used to doing: dance, talk, and entertain.

Which cam networks have you worked on?

I started on CamPals and then went over to MyFreeCams.

Are you comfortable telling your friends about your online work?

All of my friends and closest family members know what I do. They know I don’t get naked, and think it is fantastic that I am going against the curve, like I have been doing my whole life. Some even come and watch me work some nights. It’s no big deal. I’ve even worked with my mom in the same room, as I cooked and danced in the kitchen.

What do you like most about your online work?

The attention and the money are great. Every girl wants to be in the limelight, slathered in flattery, and get paid to be themselves. I make more on webcam than any other job I’ve ever done; even after getting my degree.

Have you had any bad experiences?

Yes. I’ve had a major stalker come from Australia who found my name, number, and address. It was very scary.

You call yourself “The Number One Never Nude,” what’s your secret to success?

There is no secret. I am myself. I keep my clothes on. And I don’t give in, no matter how many tokens or money I am offered. Really, I’m the only “never-nude” I know of on the web. So by default, I am number one. There are girls who say they don’t get naked, but if you take them private or on skype, they are masturbating for you. I don’t lie. I’m honest. I’m genuine.

Are there any unique challenges for performing only non-nude shows?

The unique challenge is when people think your privates couldn’t possibly be worth the time and cash. I love it when they take me and I prove them wrong. These ones normally become addicted and want to see me every night after that! Some girls talk shit about me on the web, saying I scam people, but everyone who reads my profile, topic, or listens to me speak knows I don’t get naked, dance in bra and panties, or even do nipple slips. I’ve got a clean record of no nudity, no slip-ups, and I like to keep it that way. Many men and most of my paying customers respect me and pay me more just because they know I am not going to give in, to anyone.

What advice would you give to a new camgirl just getting started?

I would say, beware. Beware of the men who want to “get to know you personally.” Beware of the tempting money offers, because you will probably regret it. And, “Do Not Forget Who You Truly Are!”

I used to have this thing going where I would recruit girls to be a part of my never-nude crew. I knew many girls who needed money and I thought, “If I can make so much and have so much fun, why not help my friends?”

I recruited a best friend of mine and she totally turned out to be the biggest slut I’ve ever met. I never knew this about her until I introduced her to a webcam. She showed that side of her to me that she never had before. She used and abused men for their money or drugs, did skype sex shows without telling me, and even met men for sex in cars to get money, drugs, or flights. It was very heart-breaking to see someone destroy themselves and their entire reputation in a matter of months. She did many evil things to me as well, including harassing my friends and family. I’m not blaming the webcam world for it all, but it will definitely open doors to a Hell that one could never imagine.

Do you have any other camgirl tips you’d like to share with my readers?

Don’t get greedy. Enjoy the fact you’re making more than $8.50 an hour like most Americans right now. Save money for your real passion and to do what you truly love. Rather it be a chef, a designer, an artist, writer, or anything else, don’t plan on being a cam model forever. Make your money while you can, in the most moralistic way possible, and then leave without leaving anything online that will hurt you in your future endeavors.

No, you will not be able to be a teacher, political figure, or public icon. No, it will not make you famous. And no, it will not make you any better than you are before you started.

Find a boyfriend who understands and cares for you and your work. Relationships and trust are very challenging as a webcam model, and most guys will become jealous of the guys you are entertaining online. Don’t get with a douchebag who will abuse your opportunity.
