Transitioning from stripping to webcam was giving me such anxiety I’m surprised I didn’t spend my life savings on CBD. The thought of switching from having an audience at my fingertips to my screen in the comfort of their own home frightened me. How the hell was I going to connect if I couldn’t sell my physical presence? It was foreign to me but with money slowing down due to summertime sizzle out, I was willing to try. What could really be that different about it?
As I got into webcam I realized there actually wasn’t much of a difference at all. Being a webcam model is like being an internet stripper. It’s a perfect comparison. The best way to keep people entertained online was to make sure I was moving around and having a good time – which is exactly what helps in the club. Being the girl who sits at the bar or stands against the wall with a bored face doesn’t translate well to customers. The same goes for webcam. When they can see more than just you sitting staring at your phone, they’ll be more into you.
So how do you decide which one works best for you with all their similarities?
The first huge indicator is how much time you have. Stripping doesn’t take up as much of your time outside of work, once you leave the building your shift is over. With webcamming there’s more overtime spent on email correspondence, filming video clips, selling panties and other media. Even if you choose a camsite that is private show based like Streamate, and not public like Chaturbate the clientele for webcam loves custom content/digital media for sale.
Interaction with customers is a constant in both and a great second indicator. For those who aren’t as comfortable sitting on someone’s lap or possibly being touched, webcam is a more viable option. If you freeze like a deer in headlights when it comes to striking up a conversation with a stranger, working behind a screen could help a lot. Being in complete control of how the other person sees/engages with you is something webcam has to offer that stripping rarely does.
Besides the obvious that stripping is more physically demanding than webcam, for those who like the idea of remaining anonymous stripping is more of a realistic choice. Once you put yourself on the internet you have to accept you never, ever know where it could end up. That key difference is a make or break deal for some.
Both of these jobs rely heavily on what your personal preferences are. Start by asking yourself if you feel like you can dedicate the time it will take to grow your following on webcam. Or if you’re looking for something more fast paced and able to leave behind the moment you exit the building. If you can’t decide, try them both for a month and keep a list of the pros and cons.. unless you end up liking them equally! Those who find their hustle in both careers can easily use them to help grow one another!
