Reasons To Be a Cam Girl

I’ve been a stripper for about ten years now, and I really do love my job. There are times when it can be a serious pain in the tits, obviously, but in the end, I’m glad I got into it and I’m glad I’m still doing it, and I plan to keep it up for as long as it’s possible. With that said, though, I’ve been camming for only a few years, and I really, REALLY wish I’d started up with that sooner than I did.

What’s in this post??
1 – Top 3 reasons to get into webcam modeling.
2 – The best cam site to make the most money at.

It’s been a huge benefit to me in a lot of ways, and if I had only been doing it for as long as I’ve been stripping, well, let’s just say my life would look a lot different right now. Let me tell you how I got into camming, and share some of my favorite reasons to become a cam girl.

Something I learned pretty quickly after getting into stripping is the fact that a LOT of exotic dancers also work as webcam models. I knew about this, but didn’t really think much of it for years. Anything computer-related seemed nerdy and intimidating to me; it felt like I wouldn’t be able to handle the “technical” stuff, and like it wouldn’t be worth my time even if I could.

Looking back, it was a pretty stupid mindset to have. It changed one night when I was drinking with a good stripper friend of mine, who was also into camming, and she really got into the details of what being a cam girl was like.

I remember thinking how simple the process of getting started (as she described it, which turned out to be pretty accurate) sounded, and I realized that I had never needed to worry about being overwhelmed by it. She managed to talk me into giving it a try, and amazingly, I decided to follow through even after I sobered up.

I am REALLY glad I did, though I admit I got discouraged early on, as I made very little money my first week. I’m not normally the kind of person who gives up easily at new things, but I definitely wanted to quit during that period and never turn my webcam on again. I’m very lucky that my friend remained supportive, and told me it was normal for earnings to be “slow and low” at first. I stuck with it, and things got a LOT better.

Today, I can’t even imagine NOT having webcam model work in my life. It’s just become such a huge part of my daily routine, that I legit wouldn’t know what to do with those hours if they weren’t being spent on Chaturbate. There are a lot of things I love about camming, but out of all of it, it’s pretty easy for me to name my three biggest reasons to be a cam girl.


3 Top Reasons To Become a Cam Model

1) It’s Fun

Come on, it’s basically stripping from your bedroom! Oh, except there’s the added bonus of being able to mute any rude and obnoxious people who show up. Wish I could do that in the club. Camming also lets me be more adventurous, since private shows (which are already awesome because they make me a lot of money) provide a place to explore fetishes with my regulars.

And of course, there’s always the chance that you’re going to run into a whale who will drop $1,000 on you like it’s nothing. THAT part makes it a lot like never knowing whether tomorrow might be Christmas, which is pretty exciting.

2) The Money

What other reasons to become a cam girl do you need?? No, seriously, camming is awesome, but it really helps when you’re making serious bank on top of enjoying yourself. Like I said, it’s definitely slow going in the beginning, but after your first two weeks to maybe a month, the money REALLY starts pouring in, and before you know it you’re already making a decent income doing this alone.

Me personally, I call it a bad week if my camming revenue doesn’t at least approach $1,000. The major success stories are even better, obviously: some of Chaturbate’s most popular webcam models are clearing $50K every MONTH, reliably. And remember what I said about surprise Christmas? Not only do whales randomly pop in to give you cash, but thanks to them, sometimes you’ll wake up to find high-ticket items from your Amazon wish list on their way to your door. Hell yeah!

3) It’s Safe

Alright, all kidding aside, and with it firmly understood that I have no intention of cutting stripping out of my life anytime soon, this may just be the single best reason to be a webcam model. I don’t think it’s gonna shock anyone to read that there’s a certain element of risk to working in a club. I remember one time, when I thought I had made a big score by talking a tipsy guy into taking me to the VIP room.

As most strippers know, it can be a serious double-edged sword going into that room with a drunk guest; they’re a lot more willing to open their wallet, which is good, but the alcohol also lowers their inhibitions BIG time and can make them aggressive. In this particular case, the guy I was with apparently believed that the VIP room fee was my payment for a blowjob. I don’t do that kind of thing in the VIP room or anywhere else, but plenty of strippers do, so it wasn’t a totally insane mistake for him to make.

Even so, he went way overboard just assuming, because I swear I never promised him that nor did anything to make him think I was open to it. Didn’t matter. Once he tried something and I turned him down, he completely lost it. He ranted about how much he had paid for the room and how I wasn’t worth it, and then he just started screaming “stupid bitch” at me over and over again.

Long story short, the bouncer heard him and acquainted him with the door, but I was pretty badly freaked. My hands were shaking like a leaf for the rest of the night. Yeah, nothing like THAT is gonna happen over webcam, I’ve got to admit.


All Strippers Should Be Cam Girls

My point in all of this is that if you’re a stripper, there are plenty of reasons to be a cam girl too. I think I really lucked out by starting on Chaturbate, because I’ve been on other cam sites, and while some are good, there really is no comparison. The huge traffic there makes it much easier for newbies to get established and do well.

The site is really simple, too: you apply, you get accepted (everyone does, as long as they’re over 18), and you’re given your own public channel where people can come see you broadcast. The ones who like you can give you tips or ask to pay for a private, one-on-one show with you. All you really have to do is apply the same skills a stripper uses, like being friendly, flirtatious, and sexy, and you WILL build up a roster of regulars who will cause a good income to start flowing in probably within your first month.

It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s safe. And of course, it PAYS. I really can’t recommend camming enough. Again, signup with Chaturbate and give it a shot, you won’t regret it…just be patient and build that fan following!

Being a Stripper at a Top Strip Club

I suppose aiming for the top is a good policy no matter what your line of work, but when it comes to being a stripper, it’s absolutely essential. I’m not saying you have to be the best of the best (though that never hurts), but there is a HUGE difference between becoming a stripper at a sleazy, closet-sized bar full of wandering bikers, and working at a high-end gentleman’s club that enjoys visits from successful rappers and football pros.

What’s in this post??
1 – Exactly what you need to dance in the top strip clubs.
2 – What you need to do INSIDE the club to keep your spot.

The difference, as you shouldn’t be surprised to hear, is money. So let’s talk about what it takes to land a spot in a good club, how to keep that spot, and how much cash you can expect to see while you’ve got it.

The first thing you need to understand about the really nice clubs is that for the girls there, they are INSANELY competitive. Being a stripper in one of these places means being a top stripper, it’s that simple. Obviously each club will have its own high-performers that even the rest of that club’s dancers will envy, but if you’re in a place where your realistic goal is to average $500-$1,000 a day and you’re just upset that your weekly take doesn’t break five figures, please have a moment to contemplate how far ahead of the game you are.

There are strung-out coke heads in the ghetto making next to nothing, literally begging each customer for a dollar after every dance, and they would sell their single-mother babies into slavery to trade places with you.

Part of being a stripper at a top club is looking like a million bucks. Take care to keep in shape, and make sure you don’t skimp on lady maintenance.

And that, by the way, is probably the most important thing about becoming a stripper at a high-end club: Quality. These places can afford to discriminate, and they only take the best girls. Being gorgeous is a must, of course, so naturally you’ll want to hit the gym and start stocking your kitchen with brown rice and vegetables for every meal (old reference from Showgirls; don’t worry, the real stripper diet isn’t quite THAT bad).

But it’s just as essential to have a clean, innocent look that isn’t spoiled by bloodshot eyes or track marks on your arms. You can drink socially with the guests, so long as you DO NOT get drunk, but the first time you show up to the club high, you’re out. While it’s your business what you do at home, these clubs don’t want addicts. Oh, and you’ll actually need to be able to DANCE in order to be an exotic dancer there. Shocking, I know.


What Top Strip Clubs Are Like

As you might imagine, once you succeed in getting onto a top club’s roster, the experience of working there is different from what you’ll get anywhere lower on the stripping food chain. For one thing, being a top stripper means you’re going to find yourself in the kind of place that usually relies on weird gimmicks to stand apart from the competition: Rooftop restaurants, guest karaoke nights, and doubling as a Texas steakhouse where customers eat off plates set on the same stage you’re dancing on.

Being a stripper at a top strip club.

All of it’s been done. Learn early what makes your venue “special”, and do everything you can to support the theme. For that matter, never forget that the club is taking real good care of you just by letting you dance there, so you better take care of the club. It can’t all be about you and your bottom line. You need to make sure you help bring in revenue for them (or they’ll boot you for a girl who will), and the best way to do that is through alcohol sales.

Top strip clubs often have themes, so get with that groove and do everything you can to support that image.

That means customers buying you drinks at the bar, and VIP room visits if you do that sort of thing. This is where having a good relationship with the bartender is absolutely key. You NEED to drink with the guests, and you CAN’T get drunk. Access to the watered-down, overpriced “stripper menu” is essential, so tip out that barhop!

These clubs go out of their way to give themselves a posh, upscale image that attracts well-off guests, and they usually aren’t very subtle about it. I know one place that subtitles its own club name with the slogan, “For those who can afford the finer things in life”. What this means is that just about everyone you meet on the floor is going to have plenty of money, which is good.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re willing to give a lot of it to you, which is bad. Being a stripper always means knowing how to pick your marks, and it’s truer than ever in the nicer clubs.

There are a few clues that will let you in on whether someone is in a spending mood. For one thing, most guys know that when you approach them, you are at some point going to try to get money out of them, so it’s a good idea to read their body language. Does your target immediately fold his arms and cross his legs when you start walking towards him? That’s classic “defensive” behavior; for whatever reason, he’s protecting himself, and his money.

On the other hand, if you sit down next to him or on his lap, and he immediately starts slipping $1 or $5 bills into your top, he’s obviously in a loose mood. Check for alcohol on his breath, too; tipsy men like to open their wallets. And speaking of drinking, one trick I like to use when I mingle with a guest is to remark that my last dance was exhausting, and “I could really use a drink.”

So, you either generate revenue for the club, which helps keep you in their good graces, or you learn something important about the guest. Win-win!


Being a Stripper On Webcam

For what it’s worth, you may also want to know about a much easier way I’ve found to make money, using basically all the same skills as a stripper needs but doing it from home. It’s working as a webcam model, which just means signing up with a camming site and broadcasting publicly using your own webcam. I’ve been doing it for a little while now, and while I wouldn’t give up stripping for the world, camming has given me a whole separate income stream that’s actually just as good as what I make in the clubs.

If you want to give it a try, I recommend signing up with Chaturbate. There are a lot of good cam sites out there, but I’ve found Chaturbate to be the best. It has huge traffic, so you get access to a bigger audience, which translates to more tips each month. The money won’t start flowing in right away, and you may have a few days in the beginning when you make nothing or next to nothing, but if you stick it out, that reverses itself real quick (believe me, you’ll be shocked how much you make your second or third week).

Like I said, webcam money is just as good as stripper money, in the end.
