The men recognize each other in rooms, greet each other, and start friendships and feuds. If I do have some basic or random guest who's like, 'Show me your asshole,' these guys will be like, 'Get the fuck out of here.' It's a community of people jerking off to you, but they're also your homies.
The models refer to the people who regularly hang out in their room as "their guys" and talk about them as a crew, a posse, or a group of friends. It's really strange." Filmmaker Sean Dunne interviewed dozens of models—and a few of their fans—for his recent documentary , which was shot partially in Seattle.
For example, Eevie works only about 14 hours a week.
(She declined to disclose exactly how much she makes, but let's just say it's more than what most middle-class families earn.) From what I've heard, virtually every woman with a friendly personality is capable of making a meaningful amount of money camming if she keeps at it.
("Eevie Lain" is her screen name.) Generally speaking, models get tipped via tokens (which translate to real cash) to masturbate on camera, but they can also create "topics" that aren't sexual at all.Most of her viewers right now are her "friends," who seem happy just to hang out, listen to her talk, and reminisce about their shared stories. "People still come into my room asking about the coffee stand," says Eevie."Everyone misses it." Eevie got her start camming by setting up her laptop inside the bikini barista drive-through espresso stand she was working at, which is apparently a novelty to people around the world. Like, 'Holy shit, there's a girl in her underwear in public.'" The rules have changed since then."And then there's the whole other clientele, which is married men who aren't getting laid." These demographics kind of surprised me—all the models I talked to emphasized that most of their regulars are unhappily married men or workaholics, not lonely, single social pariahs.And to further Bambi's emphasis on the community experience, there is a community among these viewers, too.
Earlier this year, an Oregon State University student was caught broadcasting from the school library, and now MFC no longer allows its models to cam in public.
