In my experience, it’s pretty much been “the later, the better”. I see the largest volume of clients at night, from about 10 pm on into the wee hours of the morning. That works fine for me though, because I’m a natural night-owl anyways!
I agree with sexxxilicious; this definitely isn’t a 9-5 type job, as most of my clients are “nine-to-fivers”, so I have to make my money when they’re at home enjoying their down-time. But that’s okay, because the money is good and I’ll make more in four hours at home on the computer than I would have made in eight sitting at a desk away from home.
I sleep at night because it’s important. I tried to perform a show with my wife at 2 a.m. once and, even if the money was good, we felt awful the next day. We decided to put our last show at 10 p.m. and made that a rule. Performing late is not for everyone, our health is important too.
At night and on the weekends are the best times to work. You have to wonder why guys would want to spend their weekends watching webcam girls than sports, but they do. Unfortunately, we would also like to have that time to get out and have fun, so it sucks working every weekend.
