    Default How to do Skype (or any) show and have the guy's cam blocked so I don't see him?

    Hi.

    I'm just starting on MFC and there are some things that have been requested that aren't allowed on MFC, but I am fine with doing them in a skype show.

    The things is, my agreement with my SO is that I will not watch the guys- so no cam 2 cam. He's not thrilled but ok with me camming to faceless guys, but he doesn't want face to face (or face to dick) interaction. I totally get that and I agreed with him.

    For him to be ok with the skype shows I need a way to automatically block the guy's cam so he can see me, I can't see him. I don't think it's possible on skype because, of course, usually people want it the other way around! Does anyone know of an alternative to skype where I can do this?

    1-I don't understand why your BF only accept a part of your job. it is ok to get naked, but not to watch !
    2-As I know there is no way to block guy's cam automatically, the only way to avoid watching is sticking a post-it on your screen or covering him by a picture from ur computer or internet page.
    3-I see it hard to interact with the guy if u r pretending to watch him, he may cum at the first 2/3 min and u can't even pretend to be interested.

    On an iphone you're able to take the other party's cam feed off your screen (don't ask me how, I just know I had a regular customer who got an iphone and couldn't figure out how to get his own feed from filling the screen, so he could actually see my cam as well). I guess you could always minimze the skype screen and put a post-it over the box, but if you don't provide any feedback to the guys who DO have their cams on, some will notice, and will be less likely to return to you.

    Like NaughtyCamGirl stated, you're going to run into difficulty if you pretend that you're watching, when you're not. The reason alot of guys like skype is the one-on-one interaction, with a larger c2c option than is available on alot of big box sites (I'm excluding bargain hunters from the discussion at this point). A cam2cam session is highly dependent on visual cues that you'll be missing if the guy's cam feed is blocked, and the quality of the show you provide will probably suffer accordingly.

    Why not try being honest about the fact that you don't do c2c? From what I've read here, alot of mfc skype-hunters are looking for a discount from the regular mfc private rate, so if you're charging less than you would on the site, be upfront that c2c is not an option. I bet that you'll still have alot of guys interested in the skype option.

    I'm not going to delve into the somewhat arbitrary agreement you've come to with your guy...that's none of my business. Recognize, however, that not doing c2c will make it more difficult to create the sort of bond I find big spenders are typically seeking when they visit us. It's a constraint you'll have to work around, if you're not willing to renegotiate the terms under which you and your guy are comfortable with you camming. Personally, I'd never allow my guy to define the terms under which I run my business, but that's my philosophy and my relationship. I'm not going to try to pressure you to adopt the same.

    I'd try honesty, though, if you're going to accept the current arrangement. Just state you don't do c2c.
    I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else's whims or someone else's ignorance.

    Tell the guys who are buying skype shows that you don't watch cams, then once you are on skype, use the "phone call" feature so it will be just voice, and then after the call has gone through you can turn your cam on.

    Maybe I worded my post poorly, as it seems to be misunderstood...

    I have no intention to lie to the guys. I tell everyone before private that I don't do C2C. The problem is that, by default, video chat on skype is both ways unless the other person doesn't have a cam. I'm trying to find a way to default no cam for the guy. a post-it covering it or minimize won't cut it with my bf.

    For my bf, it's like this. Anon guy's jerking off to me doesn't bother him. He is not comfortable with me playing with myself and watching other guys jerk off. He doesn't go into as much detail, but I get that he doesn't want me playing with myself while watching, if it's some cute guy with a big dick cumming over me. To him, that's too close to being with another guy or getting off to another guy; especially since he knows it excites me to watch a guy cum.

    I know not doing C2C costs me money, but I love him so the compromise is worth it to me.

    I second peaches - this will only work if you tell them that you don't do cam2cam, but you can use the phone feature and then turn on your cam only. But be prepared for guys turning on their cams anyway - guys are assholes like that. I would make sure that you tell them that if they turn on their cam without permission, you will end the show and keep the money.

    I thought if i switch from phone call to video mode both cams come on automatically. I guess I need to try it with a friend tomorrow.

    That's a good idea about warning the guys in advance that if they turn on their cam I will stop the show and keep the money. Just wondering if that will get me in any trouble with MFC if they complain (my understanding is we are not supposed to do skype shows but, like many things on MFC, they look they look the other way). I assume they would not look the other way when it comes to complains and I wonder about impact on my camscore also if pissed off guys start rating me 1

    Still hoping to find an alternative where the guys CANNOT turn on their cam and thrust their dicks within my eyeshot (how's that for mental imagery- lol).

    There's no reason you are obligated to watch guys, on skype or any other IM.

    To disable viewing the caller's cam:

    SKYPE> Preferences> Privacy> "Allow Video & Screen Sharing From": NOBODY.

    Problem Solved. Whenever a guy calls your skype, only your cam will broadcast. You will see "Accept Caller's Video" and just press the red "Decline" button. It shuts them down. Guys may complain about it but its the perfect opportunity to start capitalizing off the privilege of having their exhibitionist-fetishes indulged. Simply say, "I charge $xxx for cam-sharing, dear. Would you like to tip/tribute the amount? As soon as I see the Tribute come through, I'll accept your cam." Some will act really pissed off but most will be compliant.

    I've been charging guys $20 a pop to watch their cams on NF, through Skype/YIM shows for a few years.

    Thanks so much. I'll try it with a friend in the morning. If the answer is this easy I will be so happy!

    Honestly, if you are very upfront, and tell guys that you do NOT cam2cam, that skype is a way to talk to you and hear you in real time (like a phone call) and see YOU, but not to have you watch them, you should be fine. Yeah, you'll still get some guys that complain, but those are the same guys that take you into a show to watch you dp with two 10in dildos, even though you told them you don't do it!!

    My point is - guys will always complain. At least, some guys will. All you can do is make your terms explicit from the beginning.
