It’s a question I come across all the time on forums – can a straight male make money in the highly competitive world of webcam modeling. The answer is a definite yes, but there are some caveats.
The first issue is whether you are comfortable performing for other men. I was once at a swinger party where a band was hired to entertain. That didn’t mean that the members of the orchestra were swingers. They were just playing music to earn a living. So if you’re a straight male who performs for both women and men, that doesn’t make you gay or bisexual. It’s just means you’re an adult industry performer. Nothing more, nothing less.
You might ask yourself why a gay customer would want to videochat with a straight guy. Good question. It just so happens that there is a market for straight-gay webcam sex, just as there are tons of gay websites that feature straight guys. I guess being straight makes you a gay sex virgin, which some might find appealing.
But lets keep in mind that there are also women who love to hookup with straight guys for webcam sex. In fact, giving the increasing popularity of the CFNM fetish, many cougar aged women are increasingly seeking out video encounters with younger men. Promoting yourself as a virtual online gigolo might help you attract quite a following.
So, what are the top male webcam sites you should consider performing on? We would recommend modeling on Chaturbate for a few different reasons. First off, the site openly accepts male performers, which is not always the case with other services. Second of all, Chaturturbate has a very large audience. Eyeballs are currency in the webcam sex business, and nobody comes close to the number of viewers found on Chaturbate. And last but not lease, they always pay on time and you can retrieve your earnings easily at any ATM machine using a Paxum card. This blog post does a good job of explaining the benefits of being a Chaturbate webcam model.
As is the case with female performers, it’s important to get the basics right before you start shedding your clothes in front of paying customers. First off, you’re going to need high speed internet (with a focus on both upload and download speeds) and a decent computer. you’ll also need a decent room/decor with decent lighting. And don’t scrimp on the lighting – it can make or break your webcam shows, and by extension, affect your earnings. Look at all the top cams on Chaturbate; what do they have in common: great lighting and fast frame rates. Also invest in a decent HD webcam with hardware video compression. We really like the Logitech C920. It’s not too expensive and features great video quality and speed.
