If you are reading this, then you are wondering, “What exactly is a cam model and what do they do?” To put it in the most simplest of terms, a cam model is an online entertainer. That’s it. Like all entertainers, they can be male, female, couples, and transgenders. How you choose to entertain your audience is completely, 100% up to you.
- What are you comfortable doing?
- How do you want your audience to see you?
- Is there a niche for your chosen form of entertainment?
These are questions that each model must ask themselves, and must have an answer for, before they even buy their first piece of equipment. Before we get into all that, I would like to talk a little bit about the types of cam models and what the majority of people will be expecting out of you.
There are two types of cam models. Nude and non-nude. Each type has many different types of people who are willing to do different types of things. Which route you choose will affect which cam site you work for. Some sites are better suited for the more daring models, while other sites are better suited for those who want to keep their clothes on. I will start with the non-nude model.
Non-nude models are people who are not willing to get naked on cam. While there are many of these models out there, very few of them are successful. To be non-nude, you have to offer your audience something unique and intriguing enough that they will be willing to pay you for it. You have to be able to captivate your audience.
- Some girls play card games
- some do exotic dancing
- some play instruments and sing.
- There are also those who pick a fetish like Femdom, (Female Domination), or Findom, (Financial Domination), and roll with that.
Just know that it takes longer to build a good customer base when going non-nude regardless of which way you choose to do it.
Then there are nude models. These are people who are willing to get naked on cam. Each individual in this category is different from the next. One might only be willing to strip. Another may be willing to go nude only in Private. Others may be willing to jump on a Torso and ride it like a rodeo out in Public chat. It just depends on what they are comfortable with and what the rules of the cam site are.
Most all sites have the basic rules of no blood, vomit, or water sports. Some cam sites do not allow nudity in Public, or Free, Chat. Some do not allow nudity at all. Just make sure you read over the site rules before you sign up with them to make sure you are comfortable with them and so that you do not end up doing something that will get you banned from using the site and you lose whatever money you made thus far.
Models get paid depending on the site they work for. Most cam sites allow models to do shows in Free Chat after reaching a specific token goal amount. They get the tokens by having members tip them for doing flashes or something off their Tip Menu. Some sites only allow the girls to get paid when they get someone in Private Chat. All sites, as far as I know, allow models to sell pictures, videos, and even items like worn panties and homemade cookies. Again, be sure to read over the rules of the site before you sign up! Make sure to read our tips on things you should do before you start as a cam model as well.
