Sorry to report this, but it looks like a Camland promotional shoot went terribly wrong a few days ago. Molly Cavalli, a pornstar and cam girl for the cam site CamSoda, was apparently bitten on the foot by a lemon shark while being filmed in an underwater shark cage just off the Florida coast. It’s called “shark diving,” and it’s a supposedly safe way to mingle with some of nature’s nastiest sea predators up close and personal.
I guess the folks at CamSoda figured that a video of one of their stars flirting with the dangerous fishies might get some attention on Youtube. Oh, they got some attention alright.
It’s not a terribly unusual thing to surf the major cam sites and find many cam girls using webcams that are frankly unsuitable to film mold growth, much less capture online debauchery. This is probably one of the biggest problems in Camland, since a crappy webcam can cause many models to under-perform during their “newbie stage,” resulting in prematurely abandoned camming careers that otherwise might have held great promise.
Sub-par video equipment can also be a problem in the video production corner of Camland, as many cam girls have chosen to open up new revenue streams by selling self-made adult video clips on sites like ManyVids and Clips4Sale. Indeed, cam girls are now becoming the pornstars of the modern day, displacing major adult video performers at a rapid pace.
Okay people, I rarely get excited about new things, but this just might be an exception. If you haven’t yet heard of the new social media platform called “OnlyFans,” you need to pay careful attention here, because it has the potential to make you a whole lotta moolah.
How many times have you thrown up your hands in exasperation after having had yet another Instagram, Snapchat, or Periscope account pulled due to adult content violations? This is one of the most common complaints from cam girls, these days, and it’s a major pain in the patookie when you’re trying to build up an off-site fan following. I call this phenomenon “social media sandcastles,” because you can end up having to rebuild so many accounts from scratch so dang often, it makes you just wanna poop.
Okay, so many of you folks have emailed me asking how in the Seven Hells to make sense of Chaturbate’s apps and bots. I realize that figuring out exactly how to use and implement these neat chat room tools can be a bit tough for cam models new to the site, so I wanted to help out by pointing you to this excellent explanatory video.
When you’re a camgirl at MyFreeCams, one of the biggest issues you’ll face is the problem of how to raise your camscore. MFC pioneered the use of this ranking factor, which is designed to boost models who are “naturals” at camming straight to the top of the main chatroom listings. This, in turn, helps MFC because it increases the visibility of the models who are most liked by viewers and best able to induce the purchase of tokens by members of the site. The models who can’t seem to make tips or shows happen suffer declines in their camscores which, unless promptly reversed, can basically mean that they quickly descend into the dreaded MFC basement on page 46, never to be seen by humans with aroused genitalia again.
Most MyFreeCams models absolutely HATE the camscore, unless they happen to get tipped a lot, in which case they LOOOOOOOVE themselves some camscore. But, like it or not, it’s something that every single chick trying to make a buck at MFC has to deal with. This post is going to explain how you can boost your camscore by using video sales to significantly increase your inflow of both online and offline tokens.
It’s that time of year again, and cam models all over Camland are delightfully planning their Halloween shows, eager to scare, gross-out, and amaze their hopefully token-rich audiences. Late October is honestly my favorite time to watch cams, since it seems that models really like to bring their A-games during this period and put on a show that will leave viewers speechless.
Last year was one helluva Halloween in Camland, with camgirls getting funky with zombies, humping jack-o-lanterns, blowing dragon phalluses, and doing even more unspeakably debauched things (some involving candy corns, which is just wrong, IMO). A well-known cam model by the name of Kota Morgue even went so far as to do an extremely controversial nude show on MyFreeCams where she had a [CENSORED] hanging from her vagina by a bloody [CENSORED] after a failed [CENSORED]. So, yeah, it got pretty damn freaky.
Cam site viewers love to see what kind of craziness models can think up to do during this time, and they love to reward the freakiest and most creative attempts. I’ve seen token storms rain down on girls who do this right, so putting on a great horror show for your fans can be extremely lucrative.
Well, here we are in late August, and I bet I know what question most cam models and cam site affiliates have foremost on their minds, at the moment — “Why can’t I find ANY gawt dayuum Pikachus on my weed-fueled Pokemon Go hunts?!?” No, just kidding.
What’s really getting panties in a bunch all over Camland is the dreaded “Summer Slump” period, which has been terrorizing models and adult webmasters alike for years and years. A lot of us in the “online pleasure business” noticed a long time ago that, during the summer months, spending on adult websites (whether on cam sites or porn video sites) generally plummets, and our incomes follow right along with it. This has been a problem across the adult industry, hitting anybody associated with the business at just about every level. This slump is so hated and feared that I thought I might attempt to explain exactly why it happens, and what you might be able to do to counteract it somewhat, as we enter the final weeks of this grueling patch.
Can webcam models employ teamwork to dramatically increase moolah production? Well, yes, actually. If you’re used to camming on your own and not sharing information, tips, and other forms of advice with fellow camgirls, you need to listen up, because I might just put you on the path to “mo’ money” right here.
Okay, everybody’s heard the term “two minds are better than one,” right? I’m gonna assume everybody has. The logic behind that statement is extremely sound. Whenever humans embark on any project, having multiple people providing input and ideas usually yields far superior results than if the project were undertaken by a single soul. Well, it’s just as true for webcam modeling as for anything else.
So, one of the things I get asked the most by webcam models is how the holy balls can a girl sell more video clips? As you can imagine, the idea of setting up a well-stocked video store and making daily sales on autopilot sounds really, really good to most camgirls (and camguys). That’s easier said than done, of course, so an awful lot of sellers are eager to know what they can do to get their fledgling porn clip business off the ground. While there are several different porn video clip sites out there that a model can place her store on, I’m going to focus on the biggest one in terms of traffic right now — Clips4Sale.com.
Ever since Chaturbate introduced chatroom moderators, debate has raged across Camland as to whether doing this was a good or a bad idea. On the positive side, there’s no doubt that room mods have made things much, much easier for the cam models who use them. No longer do they have to tolerate, or be distracted by, trolls, spammers, and the “open bobs” contingent.
There is a negative side, though, which this article over at Vice.com entitled “Meet The Bouncers of Camgirl Chatrooms” goes into pretty well. The subject of the piece, Cortana Blue, is one of the highest performing webcam girls at Chaturbate currently. She’s got legions of fans, and her room count, on any given day, is considered “low” if it’s under 2000. Yep, those last two zeros are supposed to be there.
