Cam girls are revealing the ins and outs of the business. It’s become the new way for every day girls to enter the adult entertainment business and to earn an unlimited amount of money. Camming or webcamming involves engaging in sexual acts in front of a webcam. The webcam business is booming at an estimate of a billion dollars. Now cam girls are giving a glimpse at the sexy and strange that happen in the business.
A new documentary on Netflix called Cam Girlz, gives people a peek into the new form of adult entertainment. That’s not the only documentary that’s lighting up Netflix. Roshida Jones’ Hot Girls Wanted only tells half of what really goes on in the amateur adult entertainment industry. It follows the lives of five cam girls. Hot Girls Wanted also shows the negative side of the industry, while Sean Dunne, the creator of Cam Girlz, argues that camming “women to take control of their sexuality and become their own directors.”
Rosie Reed is a former cam model. She started performing with her boyfriend after she saw a post on camming on Tumblr. Reed went solo after her boyfriend wasn’t interested in the business. She enjoyed being in front of the camera and performing her shows. Reed says she does fetish shows, female domination, and vanilla shows, which are non-fetish shows. She works 15-20 hours a week, including time for preparation.

With all the talk about cam girls lately, some are wondering if these women are the new adult film stars. Natalie Star, a top cam model and mentor on the site Flirt4Free, says that she sees girls raking in money every day.
“I see porn stars applying to be cam models daily. Our models are making more in months than porn stars have ever made in their life.”
Not everyone will make that kind of money, especially in the beginning. Some models from MyFreeCams claim they average up to $20 per hour, while some from Cam4 claim they only make $40 to $50 per day.
Even men are looking to the webcam business to make money. Former adult film star Jake Orion explained how he made the foray into camming.
“I’ve done scene work and I prefer cam to porn because the pay is 100 times better. I make more in 90 days than most porn stars make in a year.”
So why is the webcam industry a booming business? Probably it’s because these cam girls and cam guys create a fantasy for their customers, in real time. An added benefit is that customers can speak to the models as they act out their sexual fantasies via webcam.
Sean Dunne describes webcam models as “therapists who get naked.”
“I think the main appeal, for both models and members, is the instant connection. People need that outlet… Camming is like love on tap, and as the community grows and evolves, it only becomes more nuanced and plentiful.”
Contrary to popular belief, camming is nothing like pornography. In fact, it’s more interactive and hardly sexual. According to The Stranger, a typical camming session usually lasts a few hours, and most of it is spent talking rather than performing, according to another cam girl named Bambi.
“Even when I was camming vigorously almost every day to raise money for my move, I would still only masturbate [on camera] maybe four times a month. It’s a lot less sexual than people think. Especially if you’re a medium-income cam girl, it’s a lot more about the community… If you’re just interested in hanging out all night because you just got off work and you have no girlfriend or friends, then it’s a nice two hours. We talk, I make jokes, we listen to music, and I smoke weed and they can drink with me or smoke with me, and it’s kind of like hanging out.
“The younger guys are people who work too much, like car mechanics and a lot of blue-collar jobs where they just come home and they’re exhausted, and they don’t want to go out, and they just want someone to talk to and then there’s the whole other clientele, which is married men who aren’t getting laid.”
There’s also the weird side of the camming business. Some cam girls revealed that they received strange requests for farting, cleaning while naked, and simply conversing with the guys. Of course, there are stranger requests, but most of them are x-rated.
It’s no doubt that all of the constant talk about cam girls will inspire other women to join the ever booming industry.
