Hi!

I noticed that a couple of people were looking for different jobs or work on the side. I've tried webcam modeling / broadcasting and it's working great for me! It's clean safe and I work from home. I also make pretty good money usually about $200/day or night.

Let me know if you need help finding the sites, I know of a few. Just drop me a line, I'm glad to help.

Cheers,
Lora

Hi! I am definatley interested in doing webacm and modeling work! But, I'm not sure how to actuaully get into it....
I've been doing private parties for the past 6-8 months, but I can't rely on them, and I don't care for working in clubs. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Ginger

I've been thinking about doing this too. But I was told that the only really safe place to work is in canada because in the US the company needs to release all of your information to the public. Is that true Lora?

Europe does not have 2257 law.

I don't see any money in cam these days actually. I have hooked up with just about EVERY damn company out there 3 years ago, and you have to do alot of BS to get a 15 minute show. You can not live on cam money.....Unless you hook up you're house....Now that is tempting!!!!

Do you have to live in Europe to work for those site Pamela? Or is it that the company just has to be from Europe?

And if u do it yourself (in ur own house) can u get around the 2257 law?

Actually, after September, it really won't matter much whether or not the webcam host is based in the USA or in a foreign country. In order to legally offer their 'product' to US based customers, the webcam host must either treat the webcam girls as employees (i.e. all video production must be done on site, the webmaster/producer controls who and what appears on camera, and the webmaster/producer must keep a confidential 2257 file of the model's information), or the girls themselves must post their personal info on their webcam page to comply with 2257 'producer' requirements, or run the risk that at the very least the website will be blocked by every internet backbone name server in the USA (meaning that US webcam customers won't be able to find/see you without jumping through specific hoops to do so).

Doing webcam from home, where the girl controls who and what appears in front of the camera instead of the webmaster, makes her a 'producer' under the 2257 law. Therefore it is current entertainment law thinking that if the girl lives in the USA, if the girl controls the webcam content, and if the girl does not post her real name real address and real age for all potential webcam customers to see, that she can be directly charged with a section 2257 violation which is a felony, and also a sex crime (= child porn) offense - i.e. your name may wind up listed in your state's pervert directory right next to child molesters, you may be required to notify local cops and neighbors that you are a sex offender etc.

IMHO between the 'camwhores' and the section 2257 law, webcam is essentially dead (or will be after September and a few very high profile busts occur).

I thought that even if you work now out of the country for a US company they have to have you're records...Actually they do. As i was on a Canadian site (nudes) from an old phone sex co. i worked for, and they had to take them down.

Also she needs to respond, because i don't know of ANY companies that you can make $200 or more for a few hours on cam these days!


Also Melonie maybe i am not reading you're message right, but when i talked to the DOJ, they said you just need to have a Paper file of you're (if you are independent) records for the authorities to see, not customers to be able to see.

Even working for a company, they keep all records, and they turn them over to the authorities if need be, not any customer to see.

^^Agreed. I did webcam work too. It was BS. I think when it was something "new" on the web it was MUCH more profitable. I thought, oh great stripping, etc. and safe in my own room, sweet. Well, money was so so and I went back to dancing it was WAY more profitable. Not worth it in my opinion either.

This is true for STILL PICTURES and for Pre-Recorded VIDEO, but not for webcam live video streams !

Because webcam content is LIVE, it comes under a special heading in the 2257 law, which requires that age and identity info be made available all the way to the final 'destination' i.e. webcam customers, and be updated to the minute, in order to comply with the law. If the video was pre-recorded i.e. an adult video, then the final 'destination' is the video store or cable company or video website, meaning that the personal info can be kept at the level of the video store or cable company or video website. This is legal because pre-recorded video has KNOWN actors and actresses, which cannot/will not change. With LIVE webcam though, it's entirely possible for a new actor or actress to walk onto camera at any moment, meaning that all personal model info must be current to the minute rather than filed months in advance. And since the webcam model is also the 'producer' of her webcam content, it is the webcam model's responsibility to provide the up to the minute info regarding name, address and age of herself plus anybody else appearing on her webcam.

The only entity that I've disclosed my personal details to is the website(s) that I work for. There is no posting of your true identity on the webpages. I have never had a problem with anyone accessing or obtaining my personal information without my consent. It's just never been an issue. Of course the the webmaster/site owners are required by law to maintain records stating who is performing under a particular screen name as well as any "guest" performers who may be performing with that model. As long as the model/performer is being responsible and not allowing undocumented indivduals onto the cam stream, there is really no problem.

As for the money aspect, it's simply what you make of it. If I put in the hours, work and sale hard, I reap the benefits. If anyone thinks they are just going to hangout in front of cam and not exert any effort and still make money, they are wrong (unless they have a very good client base already established). Furthermore, adult cam business is not just dancing and stripping on cam, it's very much sexual in nature. For example, there may be masturbation and adult toy play etc. Many performers also advertise various and sundry fetishes and role play.

Once again, it's not for everyone, but it is what you make it. From my own personal experience I've had no legal problems and the money has been good for me.

Take care everyone and good luck with you endeavors!

Cheers,
