According to this Jezebel article:
Yeah, we talked about it a bit when she was first on. You can check out the conversation on the MyFreeCams thread here: https://www.stripperweb.com/forum/sh...=1#post2534905
The general consensus is that she's not doing it very often and that apparently while she's very nice, her shows haven't been very engaging (though they were very popular, so I'm not sure if it's been new people every time)... she's more of a novelty than a threat to the other girls on MFC. I figure she's bringing in more traffic and those guys will stray to other rooms.
The only thing that annoys me a bit is that she trash-talked the adult industry and said she was never coming back. A little holier-than-thou attitude. And now she's back! Hah. Dana DeArmond (who I freaking love) summed it up pretty well:
Just my two cents.
EDIT/CLARIFICATION: I don't think Jenna is a bad person, I think she is a sad person who's made some poor life decisions and had some very bad things happen to her. I hope she gets the help she needs.
I agree that camming is very different from traditional porn.
That said, it irks me when people make sweeping generalizations about anything, and then revert to their previous viewpoint when they're in a bind. Pretty sure a lot of porn star ladies felt slighted by the way Jenna left the industry.
Hope that clears things up and no one thinks I'm a terrible heartless bitch.

I don't feel threatened by porn stars working cam. It struck me as odd when I saw this on my Facebook feed, this morning.
I feel bad for her though. She's clearly battling some personal demons, and the people who should be supporting her are not getting her the help she needs.
Always liked her. I think she made very poor business decisions, she seems to be broke. I look at her today and she looks so old with major work done to her face. I do feel sorry for her too. I would hope she would break from the adult business all together, it does not seem to be good for her.
I have grazed through her book it was sitting at a thrift store, very sad. She seems to have hated what she has chosen to do. She clearly is back on drugs of some sort.
Well, I don't blame anyone for trash talking their profession. To each their own. The adult industry has been great for some, and horrible for some. Though she's obviously had a great financial career, and fame to boot, she has also been chewed up and spit out like a lot of others. If she wants to talk shit about the industry, it's her right as it doesn't treat everyone the same. As for her going back on her word, she may be referring to "industry" as in porn, porn and not necessarily platforms. I put MFC in a platform/independent sort of box. She's making 50-60% there, possibly more so she's sort of working for herself in a way. I like DD as well, but she only gave the site more traffic than anything lol. No one knows what the future holds, a lot of things we swore we'd never do again, we end up doing. To me, DD is coming off as a jealous bitch.
When Jenna was a porn star, camming was not a thing. There is a lot that goes into shooting like getting tested every 2 weeks or less. People take that never spread my legs thing literally. I'm pretty sure she meant she would never shoot porn porn. Not solo modeling stuff. Its still porn yes, but solo stuff has absolutely no risks when you already have a bunch of B/G content all over the internet.
Not to mention, the industry completely changed circa 2009 with the recession. Social media became thing so all the shitty companies went under. You know, the ones with the bad reputations. Word of mouth experience travels instantly now. Girls are treated really well in porn now. It may not have been like that in the 90s.
Long story short: The world changes, things change, people are allowed to change their mind. Deal with it idk? Its not a big deal. She's doing very well on MFC every time she logs in.
I came here to find out about this. I try not to be too worried about the porn stars, but I sometimes feel like I cant compete. But then again, a lot of men love us amateur ladies, it really appeals to their fantasies.
Sometimes I see porn stars in public chat trying to get their Gold shows going, and some of the guys in there are like "I just watched that video of you on _____ where you were getting gangbanged...it made me cum sooo hard!" *facepalm* They're claiming to be huge fans of these ladies while not chipping in for their very reasonably priced Gold shows, and the models are being patient and are all smiles. Kudos to those models for being able to handle that so well.
she has a book that came out (was ghost written): Sugar. Fiction. Not great in my opinion. She has had some DISASTROUS interviews lately (google them). Going on MFC was likely more of a publicity stunt. She did promote (finally) that she was on MFC in one TMZ clip (this was after denying that she'd ever be in the adult industry again while on MFC). I've noticed she hasn't been on at all lately, and she may have been punished by MFC because of all of the bad publicity around the interviews.

Like no one has ever said "Take this job & shove it" oh wait, that was a song in the 70s. How many times have we seen porn stars make big retirement announcements but come back 6 months later, she did manage to last what 5 years or more. Which is way longer than most. Soooo NONE of you ever had days where you said "fuck this job." Including miss Dana DeArmond http://pornstarbabylon.wordpress.com...ople-hate-her/
Porn companies make all the money & residuals don't exist in porn. I love porn, but it really isn't or ever has been fair to the performers financially wise.
Yes, she did make money with club Jenna but how much went to Jay in the divorce? Many rich people lost their houses in the past 4 years due to the housing & banking market. Many people all over the World have suffered many financial losses & investments over the past 4 years, so how was Jenna to be immune from that?
She is going through a divorce & custody battle, doesn't that cost money?
Now who many A-list celebrities can get Larry King out of retirement to do a show on them? Have CNN clear their schedule & put it on the air? Who Barbara Streisand, Spielberg.... Now that is a power play even by Hollywood standards.
How many porn star or porn companies can get MAINSTREAM media outlets to interview them? That is POWER! plain & simple. That is media power many top stars of Hollywood would die for. Even more brilliant is to be a hot mess & have those interviews go viral. No one wants to see a porn star with her shit together, no they all want the hot mess to prove porn people are the worst. She is getting publicity like crazy, she is crazy like a mother fucking fox if you ask me.
No porn company pays residuals. At least with MFC she is getting a fair cut of the money like all of us get.
How much is she making on MFC in an afternoon, what $5000.. Jenna can easily make $50,000 to $80,00 a month on MFC. Now what job pays that kind of moneY? How many porn stars even on cam can pull in that kind of money?
She is getting paid what $20,000 to host the xbiz awards. Let me get this right, $20,000 for one night of work & keeping her clothes ON!
If she were to do porn again, can guarantee she would get 10 times what the current top porn girls get paid today. There isn't one single porn company out there who wouldn't LOVE to get her 1st scene.
Yes, she is still banking over what any porn star makes today over & above... Jenna went out on TOP & she is coming back on TOP! No matter what haters say, she is still on a level no other porn star or porn company has EVER gotten too.
I don't pity or feel sorry for her, but give her PROPS!
Part of the mystique of most of us is that we're "normal girls". Guys feel like they have a shot with us. They see us as attainable. Porn stars, on the other hand, are just an impossible fantasy for them.
Niteflirt, MFC & Streamate Cam Girl
Her appearances on cam, have been much like her recent interviews, sloppy. It's obvious she's intoxicated while on cam. Because she is the face of porn, I think this gives people even more incentive to call us all alcoholic drug addicts. What she does in her personal life is on her, but she represents all of us and I wish she'd be sober while doing it!
Trust me, her behaviour on cam won't effect mass opinions any differently than any other cam girl out there doing the same shit she may or may not be doing on cam.
I don't get why so many people are jumping on some lady they don't even know and have never talked to. It's so easy for anonymous people to be talking about some woman on a forum, yet, how would any of you feel about having a thread posted about you somewhere and people shit talking??? I am sure MANY of you have had this happen before.
