    The Camgirl’s Guide To Safety Online 

    There are a lot of reasons to want to protect your online identity and real information from falling into the wrong hands. Whether you’re new to camming or a veteran such as myself, these tips can help protect you, keeping yourself and your loved ones safe from encounters or bad experiences becoming personal. Here are some tips to keep you safe. Below is a full, detailed description of why.

    Be vigilant. Consider under all circumstances:

    Your real name
    To never divulge anywhere online your real name (especially family name), family members’ names or even pets’ names.

    Places you frequent
    To never give out the name of a gym you frequent, restaurant you eat at or any other establishment that your name may have, at any point been registered with. This also applies to clinics, veterinarians, banks, etc.

    Review your pictures before posting
    To never post selfies on social media of you sitting in your car, unless you’re certain the car type, color, make, model, is not visible in the shot. The same goes for pictures of any recognizable area near your house (can a street sign be seen in the background? A park name? Another car with the license plate visible, showing they are in New York, for example?). To you, it may be nothing. New York has a lot of people, so good luck finding you, right? While it may not pinpoint your location to would-be predators, stalkers, etc., it does provide a clue and a very dangerous one if you even accidentally let a few other tidbits of information slip. For example, you live in New York, regularly attend Gold’s Gym. You also mentioned having to swing by the vet to pick up your dog, moments later. A simple Google Earth search shows me the approximate area of Brooklyn you’re in.

    You and man’s best friend
    Posting a picture of your dog online or allowing people in your chatroom to see what they look like, even for a split second, puts you at risk of being recognized when you’re outside with your dog.

    Clothes
    Keep camming clothes separate from the clothes you wear outdoors. Wearing the same thing outside that you wore in a session online puts you at risk of being recognized in the street.

    Did someone call your handle out in the street?
    Ignore. Just ignore completely and continue walking. Take the same safety precautions you would take in any situation that you feel unsafe in the street (head to an area populated with a crowd or into a nearby business establishment).

    Protect your computer
    Be sure to have an anti-virus program (McAffee. Norton, etc.). If you don’t know how to properly install it or adjust the settings, have someone knowledgeable with computers do that for you. Be on the lookout for keyloggers and malware on your hard drive. If a computer is given to you by someone (a website you work for, for example) for whatever reason, it would be wise to bring it to a reputable computer shop and have them look for keyloggers, malware, viruses, and report anything malicious or suspicious to you. The same goes for any software that comes to you in the form of a cd or one that the site wants you to download, directly off their website (especially the latter). Scan it or have someone check it out for you to see what exactly it does.

    Social media access
    Never give up your social media access. For example, when you go to sign into a website and a window pops up, asking you to “sign in using your Facebook account” (or other social media), do not allow it. Same goes for signing in with apps. ONLY sign in using the website’s sign-in form. Chrome (browser) is among the most secure and lets you save and store your username and password for most sites (good news for the lazy and for those needing quick access).

    Home address
    If possible, as an added measure of security when signing up to a new camming website, use an old address or one that you intend to soon move away from. Do not give the new address if there’s no reason for them to have it. If your checks come to you via Fed-Ex or other courier, you may want to consider an alternative address to have your paychecks sent to where they will be accessible for you to pick them up. My own experiences with a specific website that I worked for taught me that none are to be trusted, even the so-called ‘big box sites’. Nobody in them should be trusted. The further you can keep them from your personal information (current address, phone number and all the above, except of course they need your real name to issue payments to you), the safer you will be. Believe me when I say, the websites can be worse than any ‘customer’ or ‘hacker’ you will encounter online, though it is always wise to keep yourself safe from both.

    Feel free to contact me here or directly at my email address, amanda36c@gmail.com if you have any questions or comments. I can also be reached on Twitter under the handle @amanda36c.
    Happy safe camming, ladies!

    Lessons In Porn 

    Hmmm, Stormy Daniels is suing Trump, claiming nondisclosure agreement invalid. This means she can sing about the (alleged) affair all she wants and in as many places as she wants, and for as much money as opportunists are willing to dish out.

    So they were having an affair, right around the time his wife was pregnant and there apparently was no payment made to her at that time. When the story later surfaced, the lawyer is the one who decided, on his own, to offer her a settlement, in which Trump himself was oblivious to. Oh, so that’s how it went, is it? She agreed and took the money. Or did she? And now that it somehow got leaked that Trump never signed the nondisclosure agreement, Stormy and lawyers found a loophole to void that contract.

    And now the question is, which comes first; The book or the movie?

    My take on this is mixed. I try not to be judgemental because of my own position as a camgirl. This is not to be confused with porn star though and I certainly never had sex with anyone other than my spouse, not even for money. Still, I can’t judge people for their decisions in life. We all live and learn. One can only hope that their lessons don’t wind them up in places they’ll regret.

    Thinking about it, I had many opportunities to advance my career but that side of the industry never appealed to me. The fakeness of it all and the scammers frankly made my skin crawl. The big money, fancy parties, powerful people, glitz, glamour is just a lure. The real money floats to the top and there is no low they won’t sink to in order to ensure it stays that way. Porn is a very dark world and there is a hellish, ugly, scary side to that area of the sex industry. I’m glad I chose to never be a part of it. I may have made some doozies in my life but in this case, it’s what I didn’t do that I will be thankful for having the sense to steer clear of. I didn’t need to sell my soul for fortune or fame. I was comfortable with my little camming gig, far away from those dangers, both mentally and physically. I did work my ass off over 20 years in the camming industry, only to be left with sfa. Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zilcho. Zip. Actually, it did spawn a desire for me to learn how to build websites. So all is not lost.

    I do hope that Stormy is able to learn from all this and get the hell out of that shithole industry. It’s never too late to create a better life for yourself.

    Sexual Harassment And The Porn Industry 

    While sexual harassment remains a hot topic in the news and especially in Hollywood, we’re yet to see this ugliness revealed in the porn industry, where you’d think it happens in abundance. The slimy pimps and scumbags, bums, lazy creeps, opportunists and abusers keep their hands ‘too clean’ to ever be associated with behavior so rash. Or is it just that ‘sexual harassment’ is the least of their crimes?
    Something to think about.

    Anon, The Pawn 

    Days after posting my last article, someone going by the name “Anon” decides to tell me about how someone at iFriends had tampered in her account settings as well …

    While the ip of that person remained consistent throughout all of their posts, the email address they used had changed, right at the same time as did their entire attitude about this. By law, I can’t display their ip here so I’ll just say that the ip (blocked out) in each post is the same.

    The first set of posts were made on August 13th. Then, roughly 24 hours later (give or take an hour), she messages me on Facebook with a desperate plea for me to delete her posts …

    Not wanting to bring the conversation to another platform (I wanted to see the ip of the person, to verify it was still the same one because people play games in this industry … all the time), I asked her to keep it on my blog …

    That was on the 15th. Then, she closed her Facebook account. It was only created for little me (or perhaps just a change of name).

    After a three-day silence, she posts again in my blog, this time under a completely different email address but with the same ip number. Here is what she wrote …

    Well, all I can say to that is … bullshit. The sudden 180 in attitude tells me a game is being played here. That condescending load of crap about me “leaving this behind me to find peace” is laughable. I’m not that frail. I have been calling them out for years now, and look — I’m still here. My blog is still here too (despite their many attempts to get it taken down). What I can’t wrap my mind around is her apologizing for accusing a company of deliberately tampering with her account! Nobody else could have done this. I can say from personal experience that it isn’t the first time this has happened either. Why would anyone in their right mind accept that sort of treatment? Why put up with that? Her answer now was to kiss their ass in a response like this? There’s something wrong with this picture. The second set of messages on WordPress (right above) were all from that second email address she used. Very different.
    So Anon, what’s really going on?

    A Virtual New Low 

    So this is the porn industry’s answer to how men can live out their fantasies of banging a porn star. Is it not obvious the goal here is to keep men single and spending on virtual sex for the rest of their lives?
    Promoted mostly to men in long-term marriages or relationships who are “bored with the same woman all the time” (their words, not mine), this product offers a virtual porn star that users can imagine they are having sex with, complete with visions of their dreamgirls in this little gadget attached to their head. How soon before the ‘real’ woman decides he’s just not worth losing her dignity, self-respect and sense of value over? How more impersonal can sex get? At the risk of revealing my age, this is reminiscent of a little toy we had in the 70’s

    I’m sure someone thought this was in good taste but I’m also pretty sure their taste buds were covered with some thick substance while this was all being brainfarted in their mind. Forget about the woman they are actually sticking mister Insatiable Sexual Appetite into . She is just a piece of meat.

    Lust over a porn star while you do some sucker who doesn’t care that you’re not even into her. The real woman is merely for nothing other than that ‘real skin’ feeling while your mind gets aroused by a porn star that would otherwise never give you the time of day. Hey, porn industry, why not sell masks too so that when your customers take their wives/girlfriends out for dinner or to a movie, she can wear the face of your favorite porn star? For those who can’t afford to go all nine yards and get her plastic surgery to make her look that way?

    Want to talk about degrading? What self-respecting woman would ever allow herself to be in that situation with a man? To someone like myself, who has seen enough of their scumbagism, this is not at all surprising. The industry just can’t seem to get it right with their treatment of women, can they? And they never will. Once again, the porn pigs have sunken to a new low.

    Pussy Love 

    What did you think I was talking about?

    He’s almost 1 year old and every bit as cute as when we first took him home.

    Porn And The Real World 

    Much the way a lot of folks wonder what they ever saw in an ex, I look back and wonder about my career choice in the porn industry. There are a lot of things I would have done differently had I known I would have wasted 20 years of my life, working and driving toward a goal that, all along was unattainable. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. Had I worked independently all along, for myself, not reliant on the sites, I could have achieved a high level of success, enough to compete. The scum club wouldn’t have that though. But did I want to compete with that? They own everything, under more names than I can list off the top of my head. Was I really in this for the long haul … or did I just get caught up in what offered freedom from the daily grind? That’s what it was in the beginning, when it was all fresh. Thinking about it, is the real world is really any different than the porn world?

    In the porn world, we’re brainwashed by the big companies, we’re treated like dirt by them, promised one thing and then given something else after we’ve bought into it. We’re expendable, replaceable, disposable and recyclable. We’re told to never bite the hand that feeds us. It’s funny because we’re actually the hand that feeds them. A very bullying attitude takes over once they have you where they want you because they have what they wanted and now, frankly, you can go to hell.

    Everything in the contracts are to benefit them, not us. There is nothing to protect us from being screwed over by them. In fact, they alleviate themselves from any wrongdoing, accidental or not. Let’s just blame the servers. Those damn things only work when the site is billing customers (got a fully functional 24/7/52/365 operational there). 😉

    Sometimes, when you’re in it, you  don’t see things as clearly as when you take a step back. What’s the difference between the porn world’s treatment of people and that of the real world’s? Not a damn thing.

    It’s All About That Buck 

    There seems to be a new mentality taking over in the way products and services are marketed today.

    It’s bad enough that companies use trickery to sell their products. If the question is “how do we make more money?”, those creative minds have endless solutions. Lessening quantities rather than raising the prices is one popular way that comes to mind. The ‘new and improved’ look of a package only tells me to look for how much less is inside. The boxing of packages to display a larger look is good for a chuckle, too. With all the waste in the world, how economical is it to use both a package and a box for a product? And flashback: filling packages with air (a trend set way back by the chip companies). The tactics are endless. One of the latest is the companies adding water to sauces and spice mixes. Chicken soup mix in powder form was great. All you had to do was add boiling water. Did people suddenly decide it was too hard to add water and demand the companies to add the water for us? Doubtful. People don’t ever demand better anymore. They don’t demand anything. They just accept what’s out there. Buy it or leave it on the shelf for that one idiot that is sure to come along soon because they’ve ‘got to have it’. Do the companies care? Nope. It’s all about that buck.

    Noticed those gorgeous sleek plastic containers with gaps on the bottom and curved in all the right places? It’s called ‘illusion’. You’re actually getting less. That’s what all those gaps are for. Less product inside, versus the old plain design. Look at the quantity. Cereal boxes are thinner on the sides than they used to be. You only notice this after you go to pick it up (if you’re paying attention). Again, look at the quantity. I could go on for days but I’m sure you get the point. It’s all about that buck.

    As if all that isn’t bad enough, in their ads, they tell you what to buy and where to buy it but what they’re not telling you anymore is just what makes their product better than the others on the market. You’re the consumer and they’re telling you what to do. What’s wrong with this picture? Shouldn’t you be telling them what to do? Money doesn’t just fall from the sky for me. I work hard for it, so I want the best bang for my buck. When did selling your product become a lost art? Since when do consumers need to be told what to do? Companies should be using creative ideas to improve their products, not finding the cheapest materials and trickery in what’s blatantly obvious to feeding their bottom-line. They should be competing for our business, not bullying us around. It’s all about that buck.

    It all starts with marketing and even the ads speak volumes to the true character of these companies. Their agenda could not be more transparent. Television ads, for example love to pitch the same themes over and over for each product out there. But what do “You need this” and “Because you’re worth it” really mean?

    Translation: “You need this” = we are trying to brainwash you into buying this crappy product which has no selling value, so we must try to appeal to you submissive idiots who always do what you’re told.

    “Because you’re worth it” = We made it damn expensive but will appeal to that self-pampering, entitled nature we know lurks deep inside you.

    Ads never target their male audience with this type of nonsense. For some reason, men hear the translation right away. “You’re worth it” says “It’s a rip-off. Steer clear”.  Admittedly, I often take that male approach, rather than my life savings, shopping with me. If the price isn’t right, wait until it comes down. If it doesn’t, screw ’em. I don’t need it that badly. I’d rather walk away with dignity.

    Yes, it is all about that buck.

    Disrespect For Women – Whose Fault? 

    How innocent are women when men are deemed ‘disrespectful of women’ (verbally)? Take Trump, for example, is he completely disrespectful of women? He certainly had decades worth of experience with the type of women who throw themselves at rich men. In this old video, the way he speaks of women prior to meeting Nancy O’Dell, really speaks volumes to his character.  He knows he can buy and sell people and he’s not wrong. Sure, it’s disgusting the way he talks but they let him get away with it. For example, watch the part of this clip where Nancy O’Dell prances around, flirty and completely unbusinesslike, not exactly acting ‘married and unavailable’ (starting at around the 5:23 mark)

    https://youtu.be/L0YwoPdGBN8 and it should provide a good clue as to what makes him so sure he can get away with what he says he does. People enable him. She hardly portrayed herself as any type of ‘innocent victim’ in this video. They knew the cameras were rolling, so there’s no element of surprise.

    His views on women are no better than the multi-billion dollar porn industry’s. They wear the same glasses when it comes to women. Commodities. Nothing more. There to serve.

    Sometimes, we only have ourselves to blame. Women need to know that their own behavior determines how they are treated.

    I know women often fall victim but is it really fair to place all the blame on men for thinking they can get away with this or should we share in this and own our behavior, which ultimately lead to them not taking us seriously or getting mixed signals in the first place?

    Care to weigh in?
