The number of male webcam models continues to grow as time goes by, but it is still not comparable to that of females in terms of numbers. It’s safe to say that male webcam modeling has come a long way because years back it was unheard of. No man would have been willing to strip naked in front of strangers on the internet because of the stigma and shame that came with it.
However, things are now changing and more men are now willing to join their female counterparts in the camming industry. This does not, however, mean that it is easy for a man to join such an industry; in fact, it takes a lot of guts for any man to start broadcasting live on cam.
Webcam modeling is not like porn movies which are usually pre-recorded; here, you`re performing live for people who will be teasing you and asking you to do crazy things. Interestingly, the few men who have succeeded will tell you that camming is easier and much more lucrative compared to porn simply because you can take webcam modeling as an everyday job compared to doing porn where you will usually have to wait for some time before you secure the next gig.
The truth is you can still make a lot of money as a male webcam model, despite the industry`s female dominance. As a matter of fact, you`d be surprised to learn that there are male performers who make more money than females but it doesn’t come easy because you will need to be strategic.
If you want to be a successful male performer in this business you may need to shed off your self-righteous attitude.
Once you do that, you will be willing to perform shows for gay men who are usually the best tippers and your services will also be in great demand. If you are a straight male performer, you`ll be doing shows for both gay men and straight women.
On the other hand, if you are a gay male model your services will often lean towards gay clients but if you`re good at what you do, you may even perform for female clients.
Making money requires a lot of creativity in a field that has over the years become over-saturated. Thus, once in a while, you will need to find a partner who is willing to perform live on cam with you so that you can increase your earning potential.
Whether you are lean, skinny or fat there will be a market for you but aspire to be fit so that you can attract more clients. The competition in the industry usually means that the sexiest and fittest edge out the average-looking models.
Is it easy being a male webcam model?
It is definitely not easy especially for newbies and you may even get discouraged. However, if you hold on and market yourself the right way you won’t ever regret choosing to cam as a career. The best thing is that it`s actually something that you can do for the long haul and use it to finance other income generating projects.
