Okay. I feel sick. Feels like I'm a failure as a cam girl. (I'm also hardcore PMSing, so excuse the dramatics.)

I have been making out very nicely on MFC, no complaints about live camming, but I already have a few requests for videos.... and I just can't crack the code! My entire thing is "realistic, natural, genuine"... so learning from watching porn doesn't help me one bit. I feel the need to act for the camera when it's recording and I freeze up, no idea what to do. How do you girls make your content? I have no one to tape me, just my webcam to shoot from (I'm very new to camming and sexuality in general, not confident in ability to be sexy, fall back on cuteness and quirkiness.) Any ideas? :-\

Wait, what? If you are going genuine? Just act real and rub your clit like you would when the cam is off? You can watch yourself on the computer while you film? That's what I do.

Maybe I don't fully understand the question.

I don't rub my clit off-cam, I masturbate in a totally boring way with a totally unsexy power tool. I think that's why 'sexy = faking' to me... which I don't mind, because really we're all performers in this industry, but I get hung up on wanting it to LOOK genuine and not fake.

I think the biggest difficulty for me is knowing how to fill the dead air. I can just go lay on my bed with my "sexy vibe" or rub myself, but I have absolutely no idea what to say/do without making it look like a straight up act. "Hey baby... mmm, you're making me so wet. Are you grabbing that hard cock for me?" It sounds porno. Which is fine, unless you don't want to sound porno. =\ Or maybe I'm over thinking it...

I think you're over thinking it.

Obviously don't scream or say "OHMYGODFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!" over and over. Some porn, holy hannah. Turn off. lol.

But you can have dead air, nearly all guys just want to see you enjoying yourself and getting off. You can add in dirty talk if you feel like it or if it's requested,

Guy: "Say my name, say you want my cock, talk dirty to me, etc"

Otherwise do your thing. Guys will tell you what they want.

And I have to ask...unsexy power tool? Do you have a dildo? That doesn't sound safe??

Come on ladies, it wouldn't be the first time someone has drilled their pussy with a power tool..... lmfao ;)

Really though, I also think you are over thinking it. Unless you are obviously fake like overboard fake, they aren't even going to know the difference. What do you do in your private shows? Do the same thing on video and you'll be fine.

Or you can just not do custom videos? You don't HAVE to do them... I don't do them. Too time consuming for the amount paid, IMO.

Thank you ladies so much, there's always great advice here. Even just the reassurance that guys won't know the difference if it's not over-the-top fake (I always forget they don't know how I really am personally o.o). This was actually really helpful! I do want to give it my best shot, because lazy income sounds awesome... I don't remember the real term for income from selling content. XD But if all else fails, I'll just stick to live.

Btw, no it's not a literal power tool, just a rather bulky back massager that wasn't meant for sexy time. Damn if it don't get the job done though, lol.

I feel where the OP is coming from!

in the past I would have such "fits of perfectionism" (for lack of a better term) while shooting custom videos

I remember once I had to sniff my pumps and masturbate and it was THE DUMBEST thing EVER! So awkward! And the guy was actually paying me decent money I think I got from him like $150 (directly to payoneer) for maybe 3 customs...

But now I have decided no more customs and that I would keep my store along very strict lines - only stuff that i can say "i'm feeling it" - stuff that doesn't make me feel awkward. Idc if a guy is willing to pay me $20 directly to my payoneer for a 2 minute nose blowing video, i just don't wanna do it.

to the original poster: i had the same problem as you. so i filmed myself in many different positions toying myself, i wasnt even slightly horny (id already came) or enjoying it, i made some fake moans... i never moan in real life cause i'm a silent wanker. i looked at the camera a few times in flirty ways. at the start i stood up and swayed a bit on the bed (my attempt at sexy dancing lmao). ok the video was like 1hr long and it had loads of FAKE content in it and was filled with parts where i got bored and picked my nose for a bit. and then parts where i was googling sexy poses to do as well. what i did next. i downloaded Windows Movie Maker. Put the video in it, and clipped out all the shit of me thinking what to do next, I came out with a 30 minute fucking epic sexy as fuck video that i've sold over 100 of. So yeah. Thats how I did it anyways.

EDIT: Oh yeah i forget to mention that I actually orgasmed about 2 minutes into the scene because well it felt nice at first and I am captain-fucking-cum-quick, so I actually edited it to make that scene come at the very end of the video, lmfao. i dont squirt or anything and my cums are quite boring so I just like zoomed in on my vag with the lube in it (i have cream coloured lube that looks like cum its so good for pretending to have a very creamy cummy orgasm cause like otherwise my bodys well boring and u cant even tell if i've came or not....... wtf.......)

There is a Star Wars porn parody that my boyfriend and I watched; there's a scene where Chewbacca hooks up with two Stormtroopers (all the Stormtroopers are female), and one of them just kept saying "Fuck fuck fuck fuck!" the entire time. SOOOOOO distracting. It was hilarious.

Anyway, to OP; don't sweat it. If guys like you for what you do and they're asking for videos, then just make a video of what you do during your shows. If you've got a plain and simple show with no special tricks or anything, and they like it and want a video, then make the video plain and simple with no special tricks! Voyeur-type videos might work well for you. Set the camera up where you know it's going to catch the best of what you do, and then just forget about the camera. Don't look at it, don't pay attention to it except to turn it on and off. Since your show focuses on the "realism" aspect, make it real; get yourself off just like you usually do. :-) (Sometimes being a vanilla girl is awesome; I love getting to do whatever I want, no matter how simple it is.)

As a part of the 'how the hell do I look sexy' club, I had the exact same problem as you did when I started camming. This is how I handled it.

1. Find solo girl masturbation porn on a tubesite
2. Grab a mirror and roughly (no need to be perfect) try to mimic the face expression of the girl and mimic phases and the sounds she is making
3. Wash, rinse, repeat until you feel comfortable
4. Film your clip.
5. ........
6. Profit!

this is how I for real cum- it's ridiculously hard for me not to just scream fuck ESPECIALLY with my hitachi! I only use my hitachi when requested at this point- but when I do I have to TRY to tone it down.

^^ Is now wanting to watch Star Wars porn. Also, I scream obscenities a lot of the time when I cum, too. LOL

Speaking of making content, I have a feeling this virgin buyer on ELM has just fucked me up the ass and ripped me off (I did a sph custom vid for him and mailed the worn panty, and the credits haven't been released to me yet). And the way ELM works, you have to send the guy the custom vid BEFORE he can approve it and have credits released to you. :( Maybe I need to stop dealing with 0 point virgin buyers and only deal with experienced buyers (like the first custom vid custom I had...I liked him).

TeenageAnnie and ThatOneGirl, I am going to have to try both of those methods out! It sounds kind of tiring to film a huge clip of lots of different tries at being sexy, though I do enjoy video editing so that could be seen as a fun project. If it just gets too frustrating, I will have to go with the 'voyeur' approach and just hope that I don't get a ton of complaints about it seeming like I was "ignoring" anyone. X) I'm sure glad I didn't come into this industry the way many girls seem to, expecting to just sit pretty and get $$$ in my lap, cause I'd be in way over my head. I knew this would take a lot of hard work, at least to get things off the ground, and the advice here is awesome in helping out with doing just that! Cheers, ladies.

Practice makes perfect!! Seriously. I put off doing videos for soooo long. I started off by doing shorter videos and just practising. Then it just seemed more natural :p.
