Porn vs. Webcams

The other day I met a cam-girl.

At first she wouldn’t tell me what she did for a living, but luckily I was able to coax her into admitting she was a cam-girl when I mentioned I worked for Sex.com.

I remember she said, “Oh, so we both work in the sex industry.” The reality is her job is much different than mine, but I went along with it anyways.

As we got to talking about her career as a cam-girl, I asked, “Do you think you’ll ever do porn?”

Without any hesitation she simply said, “No. Never.”

I was surprised to hear that she had absolutely no interest in doing porn because from my perspective porn always seemed more lucrative and less time consuming than doing live web-cam shows.

However, if there was one thing that I learned from Porno P.I. (the regular feature where we try to figure out whatever happened to your favorite, long lost pornstars that could return pending the public’s interest) it’s that whenever a pornstar retires, they tend to continue doing live web-cam shows.

So then I began to think that being a web-cam model was the way to go. Surely if these girls were leaving the porn industry to be web-cam models, web-cam modelling was better than being a pornstar.

Since I am neither a pornstar or a web-cam model and I have no desire to be, I had to find the answer elsewhere.

I was lucky enough to get in-touch with Ms. Victoria Rae Black, former pornstar and former web-cam model, and she provided me with an answer to my question, “Why web-cams and not porn?”

I no longer do either, for a long time now. But I personally chose webcam, because, I could make my own hours, be my own boss, avoid risky situations where I put my body at risk for infections and STI’s and I am a personal web geek that loves to troll in a chat room all day :) web camming is just like stripping, you work alone, flirt, dance and get tips. With porn, you get one big paycheck, but it was always so hard on my body, having sex is so much fun!!!! But it’s a little less fun when you could possibly catch and STD if you catch my drift.

Drift most certainly caught Ms Black. But surely a former pornstar has an advantage over regular camgirls because they have a following.
Apparently, that was not the case:

The only thing that helped a little bit was having twitter with followers to get the word out, I took such a long break in between doing actual scenes and starting web camming that it was as if I was starting all over again.

So there you have it.

Web-camming, though it may seem like bears similarities to being a pornstar, web-camming by in large is more like stripping.

Makes sense. For some reason that never occurred to me.

Thank you very much Victoria Rae Black for clearing that up for me.
