How to Become a Heterosexual Male Webcam Model

Posted on Monday (Updated May 19, 2017)

Profit as a Webcam MaleThere certainly are a great deal of straight guys that do not appreciate the facts that surround the web cam modeling industry. First and foremost the majority of viewers are men. There will be some women watching your show too, however you will be performing for gay men and guys that go both ways the vast majority of the time.


So, if you're serious about keeping a job as a live male webcam model, you need to be professional about the situation. Despite their sexual orientation, men have a tendency to be more visually stimulated than ladies are. This is not likely to change.

Even if a woman likes looking at a picture of your washboard abs, she's more likely to show that picture to some other guy ("If you worked out more, you'd look like that") than to pay to see more of you. Once in a while you'll be able to enjoy the idea of a woman watching your performance, liking it, feeling aroused by it. Most of the time, you'll need to remember that being a model is a job like any other job.

You are an actor that is portraying a scene for your viewers. What difference does it make who those viewers are? Mentioning your own sexual preference may work in your favor if you want regular paying customer though. Some guys who visit you online may very well feel excited because they want to arouse the heterosexual actor. Some may even attempt to arouse and pursue you, claiming a man has the ability to give you more pleasure then a female. The good news is that you can greatly profit from this without actually believing in it.

If you want to increase the money you make in this industry then the best bet is to tease these men. Let them fantasize that maybe, just maybe, if you met them in real life you would actually contemplate or at least think about giving them what they want, or at least a little bit of it. This does not necessarily mean that you would actually give another man head, or even let him do that for you. You are an actor. The character you are playing might be more open to experiment than you are.

Over the years you will feel more comfortable with this type of performance, it feels more "natural". After all, it’s only a performance. Those men by no means will ever encounter you, speak with you, take a look at you, come into contact with you, or expect anything else related to you in the real world.

Some other aspect of straight men performing for gay men comes up when a client enters into a private paid conversation with the actor. Frequently those men need to go cam to cam with you. Successful websites will advise you to always go along with that. They'll last more, which of course means you will be paid more for those times when you are solely partaking in the session. The customer gets more of a feeling that someone is really getting into the moment with him.

Again, a camera-to-camera act may feel uncomfortable at first, but models do get used to it. On most sites you won't actually have to look at the customer the entire time. For example, on ICamzLIVE, the c2c window will open up with the customer's camera in a smaller "thumbnail" window. You'll see options to switch it around. It's recommended that you at least look now and then in order to view how the customer is positioned. That way you’ll sound as if you're actually paying attention.

This may sound a bit sneaky, but actors must do anything it takes in order to enhance their act. If you're one of those guys who lose the mood (and erection) if you watch other guys getting into it, that's all right. You can look at images of women while chatting with a man.

You can even watch lesbian porn while chatting with a gay customer. Just keep the sound down, if you do. These guys will leave if they hear women's voices in the background.

Being a live actor in this industry is not for everyone. The truly homophobic won't keep this job long. It's nice to imagine that women will be watching you perform. It's even nicer when they are. However, there aren't enough women who are willing to pay to watch a guy pleasure himself to make it worth your while to perform for women customers only.

But if you can keep an open mind and remember that it's only a performance, being a live heterosexual male webcam model can be profitable. Relieving your tension and frustration can actually earn you money! It's all a matter of attitude.
