How to Become a Webcam Model
Not so long ago the BBC reported that the number of women turning to webcam modeling as a way to increase their earnings was on the rise. This has only increased since, and although there has also been a significant number turning to escort and fetish work through sites like Adult Work, the prospect of webcam work is much more accessible for many.
One of our sponsors, iFriends, deals with webcam models. Their site is an emporium of webcams, with everything from webcam dating to out-and-out porn. When you’re on the outside, it’s easy to imagine that the many young men and women models are somehow stuck in a digital world, and even if you allowed yourself to think about them you would probably picture them being hired by a casting director and working out of something resembling a brothel.
The truth is that the men and women that work for these sites often work out of their own homes, plying their trade in their own bedrooms and living rooms. The iFriends network, and other networks like it, post links to their services on their website and when someone pays to watch them, they pay the webcam model a majority share, keeping a little back for themselves. This works for everyone involved: iFriends have so many models and so many customers that they are still able to make a huge profit, even though they only take a small cut from each model; the models are happy as they can get a great return for their services and they don’t have to worry about advertising; whilst the customer is happy because, well, let’s not get into that.
There may be some moral issues for the webcam model, but many are okay with it. This is the 21st century after all and few people see anything wrong with flashing a bit of flesh to please someone who is willing to pay big money for the pleasure. The model often doesn’t have to perform any sexual acts and a lot of what they do is teasing, often while semi-naked. They don’t need to watch or listen to the customer either, and merely have to communicate with them through instant messages, often in a one-on-one basis.
We’re looking at this from the outside, but we have known many webcam models who have gone into this job cautious, yet remain in the job months down the line, as happy as can be and often earning in excess of $4,000 a month. We’re not where to tell you that you can earn millions doing this, and anyone who does is lying, but as a part-time job, it is clearly very profitable. If it’s something you want to do full-time, and you are prepared to put the hours in, then you could easily earn in excess of $500 a day, but that would require a lot of work and it would also require you to be very popular with users of the site. Some popular models have been known to make a lot more than that.
Open to All
The beauty of the internet, and of the users of iFriends, is that anything goes. It doesn’t matter if you’re 20 or 70, it doesn’t matter if you’re into BDSM, balloons or smoking, there are models willing to give you what you need, and as one of those models you stand to make a lot of money for doing very little.
Anyone can join up to this service. It is true that young women make the most money, particularly if they have great bodies, but young men can also make a lot of money on the gay side of things. Busty women, BBW women, mature women and every other shape, size and age of women (providing they are above 18) can also make a fortune through this service.
The sign up is free and you can do as little or as much as you want, so we say go for it, what have you got to lose?
