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.
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.
