Cam Modeling FAQ

Beginner models usually have a lot of questions and doubts. Here are the most frequent ones:

1. Do I have to have set working hours?

The beauty of cam modeling is that you’re your own boss. It’s not really a 9-to-5 job, and you can determine your working hours. What’s more, cam models have some liberties that people in other industries don’t. Retailers have to serve all clients, but you don’t! You can pick and choose your clients, hours, setting, and working days. However, keep in mind that some websites have a steady audience that comes from a specific part of the world, which means that you have to consider time zones.

2. Am I limited to one website/platform?

No, thanks to split camming, in theory, you can broadcast on as many websites as you want. However, juggling more than a few simultaneous broadcasts and chats can be difficult, especially for a beginner. So, don’t bite off more than you can chew.

3. Do I have to be a member of a webcam studio to be a webcam model?

No, you don’t. Being a member of a webcam studio means that you have the support, guidance, and someone showing you the ropes of the business. However, it also means that someone will be taking a percentage of your earnings. Being an independent webcam model and starting your own business is ultimately the more lucrative option.

4. Is experience relevant for webcam modeling?

No, all you really need is the determination and willingness to put in the work. Projecting an image of a confident and charismatic personality will make you seem very attractive, which will, in turn, draw people to you. Therefore, all you need is motivation and some tips and tricks to get you started (which you can find here).

5. What should I do if my viewers are rude, abusive, pushy, or offensive to me?

Unfortunately, this will happen to you. People will try to take advantage of you, or simply be mean, abusive, rude, or annoying. Remember that you always have the option to leave the chat room, be it private or public. You don’t have to put up with rude behavior.

6. What about looks? Does it matter if I’m not attractive enough?

If you like what you do, your audience will pick up on it, and they will enjoy watching you. Enthusiasm can make up for a lot, and it can certainly make up for you not looking like Linda Evangelista. What’s more, the adult industry is full of niches and markets that cater to specific needs and desires. So we’re sure you’ll find at least a few that have viewers who’ll be delighted to see you perform.

7. How about my gender and sexual preference or orientation?

Cam modeling isn’t just for girls who cater to straight men. However, some websites don’t allow men or people of other genders on their platform. What’s more, models catering to the non-straight audiences should check the Terms and Conditions of a platform before they sign up for it.

8. Will I have to get completely naked?

Getting naked isn’t a requirement. While most people do enjoy just that, others look for companionship or a sex chat partner that’s easy on the eyes. Again, it’s all about finding the right niche for you and doing what you’re comfortable with. If you’re willing to put in the work, you’ll be able to earn money fully clothed. For example, you can do sex chats, be a dominatrix (if that’s your cup of tea), or any of the other options available out there.

9. How do I protect my image and work?

This is a real possibility — people can use your image or videos to resell them or catfish people. Since this is a violation of the Anti-Privacy Act / Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), you have ways to protect yourself. Read more about it here.

10. How do I protect my privacy?

Most platforms will offer their models the option to block specific regions, countries, or cities. This lowers the chances of you being recognized, but it also restricts the traffic.
