Sex Sells: 3 Webcam Girls Talk About Their Lucrative Careers

The adult entertainment industry is booming. Instead of releasing a sex tape or starring in an adult film with a male actor as the lead, these girls are taking control of their careers by choosing to strip (or not strip) for the camera.

Webcam girls are women of all ages who make money in the comfort of their own homes by posing for men and sometimes doing sexual favors for them without having sex with them in real life. Three webcam girls, or models, are speaking out about their careers, each of them highlighting their unique experience with the industry.

Jenny is a former webcam girl who is now raking in the money with her sexy maid service. As reported by the Daily Star, she has been making £50 per hour or $65 USD per hour for the past five years. Jenny originally joined Cleaned Bare, a company that provides the "dirtiest cleaning service around" because she wanted to make some extra money. She revealed her experience with the job, insisting there is no intimate contact involved.
"It's strictly viewing but I would [have sex] if I fancied them. I don't mind if they want to masturbate but I won't let them touch me. I did date one of the clients for a while but he didn't like the idea of me cleaning for anyone else so it didn't last long."
Most of her clients range from young guys to older men. But, all of them have something in common: they don't get to see scantily-clad or naked women, that often, adds Jenny.The Mirror recently interviewed Jayme Jones, a former stripper and aspiring model who claims that a career in webcam modeling has helped her cure her year-long battle with anorexia. In June, 2015, she decided to become a webcam girl in order to pay her bills and live the life she wanted. Jayme bought a HD webcam (a must in the industry) and set up the space in her extra room to cam.
Thanks to her new job, Jayme now earns about £52,000 (about $68,463.20 USD) per year, and even receives gifts from some of her clients. Best of all, she finally won her long battle with anorexia and has since gotten her body confidence back.

"Being a cam girl has helped me find my body confidence and overcome my eating disorder," she said in an inclusive interview with The Mirror. "Online I get showered in compliments, but in your day to day life that would never happen."

When she started camming, she only "mostly chatted to clients," charging them up to £2.99 per minute or $3.94 USD per minute. Now, she works six-to-eight hours per day and sees up to 100 clients per day. She often participates in an online group chat where clients can watch her and speak to her once, or she will speak about their fetishes in private.

"When I was anorexic I wanted to be a model. But since camming, I don't mind extra weight. I feel sexy."
Oftentimes, webcam modeling is not all that it's cracked up to be. Sometimes girls will receive weird requests or they could have their personal information exposed. There are also risks like being outed by your friends and family, even if you're already in the public eye.
Celebrity Big Brother star Chloe Khan's "lavish" lifestyle has been exposed as a "sham" by her ex-boyfriend. Ian Hough, who had a six-year relationship with the 25-year-old and is the father of their child, revealed to The Sun that she became a "self-made millionaire" by running a webcam business in her home.
"She's not a millionaire or anything close to that. Yeah she did try to build a webcam business by recruiting girls from the estate in Wakefield, but no one wanted to know. All the girls she went to high school with turned her down."
Chloe is using the exposure to her advantage. She told The Sun that her adult webcam business has given her the lifestyle she was seeking for in America. Her business now has employed over 50 people.
"My lifestyle is pretty incredible now – it's mansions and private jets and everything else that I could only imagine when I was younger."
Webcam girls have become of the most popular search terms due to the growing popularity of the industry. Former sex workers and high school graduates have turned to the industry as a way to build their empire and pay off their college education.
