I know there is a lot of stigma attached to being a webcam model so I’m writing this article to show you that there are real, normal people doing this kind of work and we’re really just like you, except our kind of work is probably not something we dreamed we’d end up doing as kids.
What did I want to be as a kid? My seven year old self will tell you I wanted to be an astronaut. And my 15-year old self will tell you I went through a phase where I wanted to be a nurse. My 23-year old will remind you of my lawyer phase and the woman I am today will tell you that on any given day I am any of these things because I ended up being an adult webcam model when I did grow up and the thing is, I actually love my job.
I am what people in the industry call an amateur webcam model and I’ve only been doing this for about 8 months now but I’m hooked. I started accidentally because I stumbled across a webcam modeling site one night while desperately searching for a job. I caught wind of a rumor at my retail work place suggesting I was going to be laid off. Things had been super slow at work and since I was the last person hired I knew when laying-off time came, I would be the first to go so I hit the net with nothing but hope just trying to find any open position and when that site turned up in my google results, I looked out of curiosity then I thought why not give it a go and so I did.
The first night was uneventful. I wasn’t comfortable getting completely naked so I wore my bikini and I flirted with about 7 or 8 men in that three hour period. I made all of nine bucks in tips but I was hooked and even though that first week was nerve wrecking, I grew bolder by the day and I became a little less shy about performing on cam. I also quickly learned a few tips and tricks from my own customers – they would tell me what they wanted and sometimes they wanted me to be a nurse or that one older man who wanted me to pretend to be his personal astronaut and read him updates from NASA but my favorites are people who come into my room just looking for a friend and a shrink of sorts – those clients are the real reason I love my job as a webcam girl. The fact that they are some of the big tippers is a bonus!
