Default Webcam 101

Alrighty ladies...

I have now gotten over a dozen pms asking questions about webcam....lol. Rather then have to take the time to respond individually to every single one, I thought starting a thread would be a much easier method. A Webcam 101 if you will, or a webcam Q&A and since other ladies who post here cam as well I'm sure they can chime in.

Basically I want those who are considering webcam or those who have questions about it to ask away... anything goes. We all know I'm unabashed when it comes to discussing things so feel free to ask me whatever whenever pertinent to camming....

I've gotten everything from what cam do I use to what internet connection to what sites I work for to what to expect from the people on cam....

so anything everything goes... if you got webcam questions, HIT ME LADIES!

xoxoxo

If anyone has a fear of what the judges think consider this Sheila, Bleck, Elena Seiple, Rita Rae, and Athena Siganakis all do webcam and what do they all have in common.....won Pro cards within the last year!

Really good point Scott!!!

I don't know if all the girls are concerned necessarily just with what the judges will think but with what goes on during a chat, what the people who come to cam sites expect from the girls etc..... least that was my concern prior to camming...

Ladies, Alli knows what she's talking about and will pull no punches in giving you the info needed. Good point by Scott too in regards to those who do webcam and pro cards.

I want to chime in here as I was one of the first girls to do webcam on ftvideo then on hb....I have been doing cam for over 4 years now....it has changed alot since I started.....I want the new girls to know you do NOT have to resort to what some of these girls are doing now.....my chat has always been cleancut and I have remained grounded in who I am......I have seen and heard alot of what has been going on in the cams and to be honest it does disappoint me but as long as you are following your heart and do what is natural for YOU and you are comfortable in your skin then thats what matters.....there are still fans out there who appreciate a fit muscular physique and who love to chat to someone who is positive and upbeat etc ...it is what you make it!.....if anyone has any questions they want to ask me then Ill be more then happy to share what I know about cam as well....

Debbie's right in saying doing what's comfortable for you is what's important.... just as with any other area of life there are positive and negative people, cam is no different. There are people who will come into your chat and be negative and deragatory but in all honesty for every one of those I get in my chat, I get 10 admiring fans who really want to talk about my training, want to see and compliment my physique, and are obviously willing to pay for it...

I agree, what people do in the cam rooms is their personal choice, its not who they are on stage. You do what you feel comfortable with, I have been doing cams on and off for 5 yrs now, its a great way to meet fans, because when we compete we cant always meet others who are there to support us. I have fun with male and females on cam, I have met so many nice peeps out there!

Great way to interact with fans::

Just an observation....maybe it's because it's a fairly new thread...but....there have at this time been 116 view....and 13 posts...of which ONLY ONE seemed to be inquiring about anything.....
I think what most are missing is that no matter what anyone says...there is currently a stigma attached to webcam work...even though some may be completely innocent communication....I think this is evident by the responses...who actually responded....98% of people who do webcams...and NOT the intended audience....

There are some things people just don't want to talk about in the open...like I said...even though it may be completely "innocent".....that's always been a problem with open msg boards....there is a solution to this situation...but it involves a little admin work...

Its a good observation, and EXACTLY why I wanted to start this thread, or at least attempt to generate some conversation about it. There have been threads about webcam before yes, but they've mostly been "do you disagree or agree with webcamming". I wanted this to be a place where girls could ask whatever they wanted- literally be like "i've always wanted to know_________ (fill in the blank). I've gotten A LOT of pms about webcam and I feel that not only is this more time efficient for me but it's also a good place to publicly answer questions other girls may be wondering as well.

I understand there have been other threads I just felt perhaps this would be a good place to answer any and all questions girls may have....

OK, so what stipulates one on one or chat room. For instance, if you're in a chatroom and someone wants to do one on one how do you go about doing that? Does it go by appt. only?

that is great and i respect that, but you only answered one of my four, i think, questions. and that was the one about the money. so that led me to believe it is something that is not openly talked about like you stated.

i still have no idea what you do on your webcam and what you talk about and who you talk to. so if that is something you don't want to discuss, i respect that. otherwise, i really am curious. not judging in any way. what you do in your home is your business. you opened this up for discussion though so i asked. you however did not answer, making me feel like i should not have asked.

You talk about whatever they want to talk about. It can range from training/diet to religion to absolute nonsense. In the 2yrs I've done it I've only had 2 or 3 bad apples. I love my guests! They are our fans and they have helped me afford to do what I do best...compete! Once you go into private chat (that's the paid chat) it's up to you how far you want to take it. Some sites, like HB, have rules you have to follow. And your private chats are monitored there as well to make sure you are not breaking those rules. But it is completely up to you in regards to your body. No one is judging anyone here. We all have our limits. So don't feel you have to do something because so and so is doing it.
