Why Are Porn Stars Turning To Camming

Posted on Tuesday

The combination of the dying porn industry & the extreme difficulty to make a living wage from porn have combined to drive many porn stars away from traditional porn roles & into a new industry - live cams. The real beauty of it is that anyone can do the same.The world of online adult entertainment is changing with live camming taking the reins from more traditional types of porn such as movies, video clips, and parodies. The days of real worldwide porn "superstars" are fading quickly and being replaced by a new type of star - cam girls.

 

The changing landscape has led to huge changes in the adult industry over the past few years with porn stars flocking to live cam sites and changing their approach to their job. But, why are these porn stars turning to camming? What are the advantages? What are the benefits?

Below, we explore why the live camming market is now the biggest player in online adult entertainment and how it is attracting the world's biggest porn stars as well as creating new adult stars every day.

A Dying Porn Industry

As mentioned above, the porn industry is being overtaken by live cams. Frankly, the porn industry has been on its knees for a long time now. Working as a porn star is incredibly difficult. Shooting often takes place every day with actresses enjoying only a couple of days off a month. That grueling schedule makes the life of a porn star incredibly difficult. That's if you can make it that far in the first place.

The porn market is saturated with the advent of the internet and popular free porn websites. Finding free porn videos online is incredibly simple and this affects the ability of porn stars to make decent money from their professions. For every mega porn, there are hundreds or even thousands of struggling porn actresses performing for very little money and struggling to get by.

The combination of the dying porn industry and the extreme difficulty to make a living wage from porn have combined to drive many porn stars away from traditional porn roles and into a new industry - live cams.

A Thriving Live Cams Industry

While the traditional porn industry has been struggling, live cam websites have exploded over the past few years. An ingenious and innovative idea, live cam sites provide a platform to connect adult stars, or cam girls, with a huge audience in real time. Cam girls perform shows over a live webcam connection while thousands of people can watch, chat, and interact at the same time.

It is estimated that the live cam industry is worth billions of dollars every year and is continuing to grow an exceptional rate. There is a lot of money to be made working as a cam girl and there are no commitments to working hours, performing with strangers, and other aspects associated with traditional porn.

The growth of live cam websites has attracted a huge number of porn stars who can rebrand themselves and begin working in their terms. However, it is not just porn stars who use live cam sites. Literally, anyone can become a webcam model with just a webcam, internet connection, and some determination.

The live cam industry is packed with women who work regular office jobs or study during the day before turning on their webcam and their audience at night for some extra pocket money. The average webcam model can make a very decent amount of money performing for just a few hours a week. However, the top cam models pull in well over six figures a year by just performing on cam.

Working Solo Vs Working On Set

Perhaps the most appealing aspect of working as a cam model for anyone who has previously worked in the porn industry is the home comforts of live camming. Porn stars often have to travel long distances to arrive on set where they can spend more than 12 hours a day performing before repeating the same schedule again the next day. This is extremely tiring and difficult.

However, cam girls are completely in charge of their own operations. Unlike porn actresses who must obey the director, work with a partner, and have little to no say about what happens when the camera is turned on, cam girls are their own bosses.

There are no time limits applied to be a cam girl. Models can work whenever they choose and for however long they desire. They simply need to switch on the computer, turn on their webcam and start making money. Cam modeling is the true dream job with your own working hours.

Beyond the great working times, camming has other benefits. Models can choose who they perform on cam with. In fact, most cam models choose to perform solo shows - a big difference in working with strangers on camera in the porn industry. Solo shows are safer, easier, and more convenient than working with other people which a major reason for many porn stars choosing the live camming career over the porn career.

Making Huge Returns Working Short Hours

Another major factor and perhaps the most important is the income potential from cam modeling. As mentioned before, the porn industry is dying and only the top 1% of actresses actually make good money from being a porn star in today's world. Camming, however, is the opposite.

Live cam platforms have audiences of hundreds of thousands of people, all waiting to pay for models to put on amazing shows. The way that lives cam sites work makes it very easy to rake in a huge amount of money in a very short time.

There are multiple ways to make money by live camming including:

- Gold Shows. The most popular and easiest way to bring in cash is via Gold shows. The idea here is very simple. You sit on webcam while people enter your live chatroom. As viewers enter the chatroom they will see a "Gold Show goal" that you have set. For example "Reach 1000$ for a live strip show". Each person in your chatroom has the ability to contribute to the goal so that they can see you perform live. Similar to crowdfunding, this means that each person only needs to contribute a small number of money in order to see a live performance. By using this method, models can set themselves a target for the day and only perform once they have reached that target.

- Private Shows. A huge money-maker is performing private shows. Private shows are when a member decides they want to see you alone, either just watching you or sometimes by turning on their webcam for a cam-to-cam show. These are typically pay-by-the-minute shows at a rate you decide. For every minute the client is in a private show with you, the number of tokens you earn will increase. This is an enormous earning opportunity.

- Selling Social Media Logins. Many webcam models also use social media such as Instagram or Snapchat to promote their shows. While this is a great idea to get more people into your live chatroom, it is also a money-making opportunity. By selling access to locked social media accounts, you can allow some customers to see extremely private media of yourself or private chat with you.

With these simple ways to make money on live cam sites, many models can earn a small fortune by working very little hours. It really only takes a few minutes to set up a profile, create an ambient atmosphere where you are streaming, and then start broadcasting your webcam. The simplicity of camming is another reason major porn stars have become attracted to the industry and perform on webcam rather than act in traditional porn videos.

Keeping A Low Profile

For women in the adult industry keeping a low profile can be of huge importance. The embarrassment of family, friends, and others knowing about your lifestyle choice can often swing the decision one way or the other. Porn stars have little to no anonymity. They are often marketed by their employers and known worldwide to a very large audience.

Cam models, on the other hand, can enjoy a much higher level of anonymity. Cam sites allow models to choose which locations their broadcasts are streamed in and viewed. For instance, if a cam girl is camming from the United States they can choose to block their profile and live broadcast for all viewers in the US. This means their relatives and friends will never know what they do.

Similarly, models can choose obscure usernames and do not have to provide any personal information. They can protect their live shows from being recorded and enjoy making money as a cam model without becoming known to the world - unless they choose so.

No Script, No Expectations

Freedom is the most powerful word for cam models. Working on a porn set can quickly become tiresome. You need to memorize lines, be able to perform on command, and enjoy very little creativity or input. This is completely opposite to what cam models experience.

Models on camming sites can enjoy full creativity over their broadcasts. They can choose to just sit and chat with customers, dress up in sexy outfits, role play, striptease, or any other number of different ways to attract potential tips and tokens.

There are no expectations on cam models in the same way that expectations are placed on porn stars. It is a huge relief to not have to work in the direction of someone else and instead perform and act exactly how you feel comfortable and want to.

Some cam models use this freedom to create their own brand which they hold the rights to and make a profit from. Merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs etc. can be created and sold with all profits going directly to the cam model and not a third-party company who own intellectual rights to your image. Cam models set their own goals and expectations.

The live cam industry continues to grow every single day. As technology evolves so does the potential for cam models to make money. The advent of smartphone technology has meant that cam girls can now turn on the camera on their smartphone and start camming instantly from anywhere to make some extra cash.

Many of the live cam websites offer a mobile platform, enhancing the experience for both customers and models. As technology continues to grow, people demand instant access to whatever they want. This applies to adult entertainment also. Porn videos can feel so stale after experience a real live webcam show being performed in front of your very eyes.

For these reasons, porn stars are moving away from traditional porn movies and discovering a whole new way to make money. While there will always be some demand for pre-recorded porn videos, the ability to sell and profit from such movies is becoming increasingly difficult and practically impossible for the majority of actresses. So, they have turned to a new and exciting way to make money - cam modeling.

Many models are extremely surprised at how simple the whole process actually is to become a webcam model. From signing up to your first broadcast, every step is very easy with great assistance all the way. The best way to judge how successful cam models really are is to have a look around one of the popular websites.

Head into the live chat of any cam model and look at how many people are there, willing to tip and send tokens for a live show. See how quickly the pot builds as the cam model on screen chats and flirts with customers to reach her goal. Imagine being able to make that sort of money with just a few hours on cam each week.

Cam models are truly the porn stars of the future but with a difference. We likely won't see cam girls reach the heights of fame that porn actresses reached 20 or 30 years ago. However, cam girls will be making more money, working fewer hours, and answering to nobody but themselves.

Porn stars have flocked to live cam sites as they know the potential of these platforms and where the future lies. The real beauty of it is that anyone can do the same.
