How to Become a Cam Girl: Mental Prep, Equipment Check, and More.

Apr 1, 2022

If you’ve ever thought of working in the sex industry, you might have thought about working as a cam girl. After all, they work alone in the comfort of their own home, and they don’t engage in sex with other people. So you don’t have the same risks that you might have if you were a porn performer. 


However, working as a cam girl isn’t as easy as it looks. It takes time and dedication to make it to the big bucks, but when you do, you could be making more money than you’ve ever made in your life. Ohh, how elusive yet so sweet…


What is a Cam Girl?


A cam girl is a female model who broadcasts a live video of herself engaging in solo seductive or sexual acts through which she earns money.


But What Does a Cam Girl Actually Do?


The list of seductive and sexual acts is endless, from fingering yourself to inserting phallic objects into your vagina. As long as you are comfortable doing it, you can pretty much get up to anything. Of course, as this is a solo thing, you won’t be having sex with other people unless you invite a special guest onto your Livestream, of course! 


At the beginning of the Livestream, most girls wait to gather an audience before they actually start performing. And each sexual act normally comes at a particular price.

Why Should You Become a Cam Girl?


Being a cam girl has proven itself to actually be a very lucrative business endeavor. You can expect to make three or four figures just from a couple of hours’ work – if you are a great and consistent performer, of course! 


Out of all of the sex work activities out there, being a cam girl is perhaps one of the safer options because you can do it from your own home, and you don’t have to have sex with anyone else, getting rid of the risk of getting pregnant or catching an unwanted STI. And it’s also quite self-indulgent; you will get requests from your audience to do certain things, but you could also ignore them and just spend two hours masturbating and get paid for it. 


Many women have gone into cam girl work to supplement their income, whether they’re at college or working a full-time job. In the 21st century, it has become clear that one job is not enough to cover the costs of modern living, so everyone these days should have a side hustle. And for a lot of women, this is being a cam girl.


Cons of Being a Cam Girl


Sex work is still very much frowned upon these days, which is crazy considering how many of us are having sex. Having sex is fine, but doing anything sexual for money is, for some reason, still not entirely accepted. So if someone you know finds out you’re doing cam work, they might not react all that positively.


Being identified on camera is one big con. Cameras don’t lie, and if your face is visible, anyone who knows you will know you’re doing sex work. Websites like Chaturbate give you the option to block certain countries or towns, eliminating the risk that someone you know will find out.


However, there is still a risk. You can also choose not to show your face, but the models that earn the most tend to be the ones showing their face.


Another con of being a cam girl is that it’s a stay-at-home job. This is also a pro, but if you are dedicating a lot of time to being a cam girl, you will end up spending a lot of time at home. If you’re a person that likes to stay active and go out and about, staying home to be on camera might not be for you.


How to Mentally Prepare For Becoming a Cam Girl


Being a cam girl isn’t like working as a barista at Starbucks. You will be naked or half-naked on camera to potentially millions of people. How do you even prepare for that?


The answer is to just be confident and have no expectations in terms of earnings. Do it because you enjoy it and not because of the dollar signs. It may be a lucrative side hustle, but if you don’t like getting naked in front of millions of strangers? Don’t do it! 


In terms of mental preparation before working, it’s a good idea to get into a ‘sexy’ mentality. Put on your favorite sexy music, get into your chosen lingerie outfit and meditate for a few minutes, channeling your inner sex goddess. Get into a place of zen, take deep breaths and relax. Relaxation goes hand in hand with sex. And you want to promote a positive attitude while on camera, so it’s no good being stressed.


In addition to being relaxed, it’s also important to be on guard too. There are some idiots out there, and you might have to report some of them. You don’t have to do everything the viewers want you to do, so have a mental note in your head of how far you’re willing to go.


What Equipment do you Need to be a Cam Girl?


All you need to start working as a cam girl is a laptop or computer with a good webcam (or another camera device hooked up to it), a good wifi connection, and whatever accessories you intend to use. 


Because you won’t be having sex, it’s a good idea to have a variety of sex toys to use to keep your content varied and interesting. There are also a lot of app-controlled vibrators out there that your viewers could interact with. Even without toys, all you really need is a good webcam and good internet. As you get more experienced, you could think about upgrading your setup. 


Advanced Equipment for Cam Girl Work


So you’ve been working for a while and think it’s time to upgrade? If you want to take your content from amateur to professional level, here is what you need to get there:


  • A computer with the following minimum requirements: Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive
  • Lighting: The lightbulbs in your room won’t cut it. You’re going to need some professional lighting fixtures to light yourself up in the best … well, light. The best idea is to have one primary light on full brightness, then another light on lower brightness to the side, and an even lower light at the back.
  • Wireless mouse and keyboard: If your computer is best placed a bit far away, it’s handy to have a wireless mouse and keyboard to be able to interact with your viewers without having to get up.

The Climax


Being a cam girl is different and, at the same time, not so different from working as a barista to earn extra money. After all, they are both legitimate jobs! The difference is that you could potentially earn a lot more than a barista. 


Being a cam girl is a very lucrative side hustle if you are the right person for the job. You have to be body confident and enjoy sex or talking about sex. But you don’t have to fit into a mold. Don’t think that you should do cheesy dirty talk just because that other model does it. If you’re going to go into cam work, do what is right for you. If there’s something that you hate doing, don’t do it. Period. You should finish a cam session feeling empowered, not embarrassed.


At the same time as being lucrative, cam work can also be risky. After all, your face is likely to be on show, and someone might recognize you. You never know. So be aware of who might be able to see and recognize you and a potentially negative reaction. If this is something that is stopping you from cam work, why not choose a site that gives you the option to block certain locations? Then you don’t have to worry about Uncle Bob seeing your shaved cat. 


If you’re going to take anything away from this article, take this: only do something if you like the idea of it. If you hate the idea of doing sexual acts for money but need to pay off your car loan, maybe think of another side hustle instead? At the same time, if you don’t mind the principle of selling sex for money, cam work might just be up your street.
