    A Generation Of Idiots 

    What we’re seeing in society today lends credence to the old Einstein quote:

    “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots”.

    Well, I can’t say I disagree. We allow ourselves to be distracted by little hand-held devices, putting our own lives in danger. Smart? Texting while driving, walking, eating, working. We call this ‘multi-tasking’ when in reality, it’s an avoidable risk. We sleep with our cell phones within arm’s distance. My gosh, what if someone tries to contact us while we’re sleeping?

    Devices have our attention not only in the car and at home but in the workplace, at sporting events and other outings, at family functions and social events.

    Every moment we spend with our head down is another moment we will never reclaim. To see the world around us, catch a child’s smile, the wagging of a dog’s tail, the approaching car in front of us as we cross the street. We are completely oblivious to what’s around us. We have chosen to blind ourselves to what’s coming straight at us. We just pay no attention. Sadly, to many, texting has become more important than life itself. I shudder to think how many (preventable) texting and cell phone related accidents have occurred in the last ten years. I’m sure those figures will never be released, with absolute certainty or honesty, so let’s all put on the rose-coloured glasses and pretend there’s nothing wrong.

    I saw a young woman with a ball thrower, playing with her dog in the park. After she threw the ball, she got on her device. The dog returned for another throw and she struggled to get off the gadget to toss the ball. It’s not like those ball tossers are hard to work or take long to operate. It took her a few minutes just to take a few seconds to throw the ball.

    So many of us pay more attention to our devices than the people we’re with and that is truly sad.

    What form of logic has taught us that texting is more important than our own lives? We get behind the wheel of our car and decide we are such excellent drivers, assuming that all others around us are as well, that we could easily drive with our heads down, send and receive messages, check e-mail and search Google for a nearby restaurant. Relying on that incredible superpower we all have called “peripheral vision” to kick in when danger approaches, justifies it.

    I survived just fine for 47 years without a device to guide me, think for me, tell me what Kim and Kanye did last week. I don’t need a GPS. I can read a map. It’s not rocket science. I can think for myself and K & K can kiss my ass. The drama of their lives ties right into the title of this blog anyway.

    I can’t help but sometimes look at people on their devices, circling the sidewalks downtown, pacing, bumping into other people, talking loud enough for the person across the street to hear every word clearly. We’re smarter, are we?

    “A generation of idiots.” Einstein wasn’t wrong. Look around.

    Who Wants A Website? 

    A little history, for anyone curious …

    My camming career began in 1997. My debut was with a professional site in the earliest stage of internet porn.
    I spent the first two years riding out a measly ten dollar an hour job, hopeful an opportunity would arise that would allow me to work independently. In 1999 came my chance. I seized it and worked hard over the years, building what I thought was my own business. I even taught myself HTML, javascript, utilizing every graphics program I could get my hands on to design things just the way I wanted them. Coupled with marketing knowledge, my newfound webdesign skills allowed me to build groups and populate them with participating camgirls wanting promotion. Every step forward was another step back once the sites began introducing studios and agencies to maximize profits. There were countless ways for them to fill their pockets more, at our expense; some only borderline legal. Everything from content theft to faking live shows with replays, claiming refunds and chargebacks on the girls’ hard earned money, skimming from them and the outright overbilling of customers. I grew tired of this. Tired of the games, the way when you speak out, you’re punished. I was tired of being harassed, insulted, attacked everywhere I turned, by the same group of pimps who slyly disguise themselves as camgirls in their pathetic efforts to control the industry and everyone in it. The years of attacks and harassment I endured were not from real camgirls. I was only trying to warn camgirls, to help them avoid the paths that would lead to them having to endure what I did, after discovering how the sites stole from us, lied to us, and how they continually manipulate and abuse us. Having grown so tired of this behaviour, I decided to do something about it, so I created CamGirlClubs, a site for camgirls who want to learn how to be truly independent. While a whole slew of other sites in recent years claim to do this same thing, they cannot prove the camgirl actually exists. How do you know a pimp is not behind this? They are, after all, behind every aspect of our industry and have their money-grubbing hands all over our content.

    I have a blog filled with years worth of articles about my experiences with the sites I performed on. I have social media accounts where I talk about the industry in the same light I am right now (not necessarily a good one). That is what a real camgirl does. That is how a real camgirl behaves. She doesn’t ever attack another camgirl for stating her honest views regarding the sites and their antics. That’s someone who feels threatened, acting out in a defensive manner.

    I created CamGirlClubs with the intention of giving camgirls an option to move away from the webpimps and become truly independent. Many camgirls are working on platforms that allow them to offer Skype shows, thinking they are truly independent. Well, hate to be the bearer of bad news but you could be under the tent of yet another slimy webpimp, controlling your traffic and selling your videos. Many of the cam programs you see in our industry are designed and created specifically for them. They even own some payment processors and all-in-one solutions which offer suspiciously high commission rates to the girls. These rates are so high because they’re making money by recording your shows and stealing your customers. Rest assured with these pricks, you will lose business and not even know what hit you. Yes, they are that good. This is why they hide their ownership behind fake names of people who don’t actually exist and companies without a physical traceable location. It’s also why you sign contracts with one company yet that name differs from the name of the site you’re working on. Many of you are familiar with what I’m saying.
    Getting to my point; I’ve had CamGirlClubs up and running for a couple of years but haven’t done much with it until recently, when I decided to implement a Silent Partner Program which allows girls to come on board anonymously, with no one knowing they are involved with us. I created websites for several of them and hooked up others with the ability to offer Skype shows to their customers. I’ve had more than a few requests to build websites for them and thought about it long and hard but didn’t want to take on the commitment. I had other things going on in my life and simply didn’t have the time. With those projects out of the way, I now have the time so I’ve decided to expand on the services offered by CamGirlClubs to include a simple solution for those wanting a password-protected members area to sell videos and have the ability to process Skype show purchases safely and legally.

    What does being truly independent mean?

    We don’t have access to your live video feed. It’s direct, on Skype from you to your customer.
    We don’t have access to the content secured in your members area.
    We don’t have access to your site (only temporary, in the initial set-up stages).
    We don’t have access to your customers’ information. Only you do, through your very own account.
    Choose from a gorgeous variety of stylish templates. We will do all the work for you.
    Low prices. Quality work. Excellent customer service. Repeat and referral business is important to us, so you can expect our after-sales service to be top notch.

    Disclaimer:
    Defammatory comments, libelous statements, slander or any other form of attacks will be ignored. I am not a target practice for webpimps feeling threatened by my presence in their sandbox. I am offering a service. Don’t like it? Don’t respond. I like to keep things simple. Serious inquiries can be addressed to me directly.
    For samples, pricing or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly on Twitter or Facebook.

    Thanks for your time girls and happy camming!

    A Camgirl – Exposed! 

    Just because I’m a camgirl doesn’t mean everything in my life revolves around sex. Allow me to dispel some misconceptions:

     

    I don’t dress like a hooker. Sorry guys.

    I don’t eat bananas seductively in public places. Only at home, and only in front of my husband. Awww dang!

    I’m not the best or the kinkiest in bed. Okay, well, perhaps I just haven’t amassed enough votes. That’s a good thing!

    There isn’t a sexual connotation attached to everything I say. Oh, what the heck am I good for now, eh?

    I don’t shove objects into orifices not intended for them. Beer bottles are for beer drinkers and cucumbers get chopped up for adding to a salad.

    I don’t walk around the house in skimpy lingerie all day. I love my sexy jammies and sweats.

    Conversations don’t begin and end with sex. There are other topics of interest. No, really.

     

    People that sill feel they must stereotype, go ahead. I understand. Research requires work and it’s just easier to be a lazy fuckass and hey, if you’re wrong, you’ll still have 10,000 bigots agreeing with you! :)

    Video Theft & A New Name 

    Last night, a guest entered my chatroom with a very interesting tidbit of information.
    I highlighted his part of the conversation. Since I communicate by audio, my part of the conversation is missing. I blurred out the names of the dot coms to prevent the slimeball pimps from knowing what they now need to hide. I’m glad the members are honest and really appreciate when one goes out of his way to help like this. I verified his claim and am planning to take action against these 3 sites, in addition to the list I already have, of sites my content is (and has been) on.

    chat

    If you have knowledge about content being sold or promoted on other sites, of a performer that you know, contact that performer and communicate your findings to her privately, where you know prying eyes aren’t watching. For example, her Twitter timeline is not a good idea but a private message in a dm to her is fine. The performer should keep a record of every site her content is on. This will serve her well in the future when she finally decides enough is enough and goes after those stealing her content and livelihood.

    What Is A Camgirl? 

    Let’s get some things straight here:

    A camgirl doesn’t sell her body for money. She sells video footage of her body for money.

    A camgirl doesn’t meet with customers in a ‘sex for money’ exchange. That is a prostitute’s job.

    Lumping ourselves into the category of ‘sex workers’ isn’t much of a stretch because we do perform acts of a sexual nature for money.

    A camgirl is someone who performs sexual acts in an online environment on herself or others in exchange for money. A camgirl may work solo or with one or more partners.

    To address some common questions about being a camgirl:

    What do camgirls earn?

    Our earnings vary. There is no standard, as there exist too many variables. Like any business venture, what one puts into it generally determines what they will get out of it.

    Does a camgirl’s family and significant other know what they do?

    For the most part, it’s hard to hide from our significant other or close family members when they ask. Relatives think I work on the internet doing webdesign.

    Do camgirls still enjoy sex in real life or does camming take up all their sexual energy?

    It can, at times, slow us down a tad but it’s nothing we can’t handle.

    Do camgirls ever meet their clients?

    Typically, no but it has been known to happen. Some people treat it like they would a chatroom or dating site, taking only minimal precautions. Personally, I would caution anyone considering it to take a good look at the dangers involved due to the stigma and general attitudes toward the sex trade, which have changed very little over the years.

    Why is the per minute rate so high?

    When I started camming, I was earning 50%. Then, over the next few years, I started to notice other sites were paying their girls only 35%. Shortly after, the site I was on decided to stop absorbing chargebacks and refunds. The performers then had a choice; a drop in commission to 35% with no chargebacks and refunds … or it remains at 50%, less chargebacks and refunds.

    But wait, there’s more!

    35% must have been too much to have to pay out to us, so the sites decided to hire a bunch of girls to ‘recruit’ performers. The girl would be paid a few thousand dollars a month to round up enough suckers who were willing to work for commissions far less than 35%. It proved a success. The sites managed to take a higher commission from the performers. See how the commission rate continues to decline? The girls that were earning 35% before, were bumped down in the listings and gaining less exposure (therefore, less traffic to their rooms) in favor of the girls giving the sites that substantially larger cut. Thankfully, the sites did still allow the 35%ers to get in on the big stiff, signing up through one of those hired recruiters,becoming a recruitee and earning a whopping 3 to 17 % percent less!

    It is the camgirl who chooses her own rate from a drop-down menu with choices such as $1.99, $2.99, $3.99, $4.99 and $5.99. The amount she chooses to charge is not always based on the size of her ego. Let’s first get that straight. It’s often based on paying herself for compensatory damages due to the site’s greed.

    Why is the per minute rate so high, you ask?

    A camgirl is one tough chick, with a tough job, in a tough industry, so the next time you visit your favorite camgirl, remember this and show her your appreciation. Please keep in mind: The sites take a huge chunk of her commission (even with tips), so tip her privately to her Payoneer account or with a gift card.

    Got Bots? 

    Poll results and some interesting facts.

    pollresults

     

    According to this recent poll of members, a vast majority type a greeting or use the chat interface to type “hello”. That’s funny, not at all what I’m seeing. In fact, the majority that enter my room are the silent type. The chat can be dead for hours and only silent lurkers would manage to stay. They could stay for extended periods of time, too. I’m talking record lengths of time.

    I used to think it was crazy to even entertain the notion that the sites could be using bots to make our rooms appear fuller. Why would they do that? They had traffic. They still do. Traffic that no longer pays .. or chats. Hmmm. Perhaps the real question then is why wouldn’t they use bots? It serves two purposes; to keep the performers attentive to the room should a real member enter and want to go private (the sites do still need our content), as well as giving the illusion, to what little members are left floating around in the tumbleweeds, that the site actually has traffic. The same type of thinking that goes into why a restaurant seats its first customers by the window. If the place looks busy, more people will want to eat there. The only difference is that a restaurant can’t fake its customers. A site can and it’s easy as pie to set up.

    Why would they fake customers instead of just buying traffic?
    Simple answer: It’s us camgirls that drive traffic to the sites. All of us, collectively, from our social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.. The sites can keep those advertising dollars snug in their pockets. Besides, the sites don’t survive on what little traffic comes and spends on us. It’s our content the sites want. They couldn’t care less whether we make money or not. It makes no difference to them or their off-shore bank accounts.

    So, would they or wouldn’t they? I already know the answer. This is just food for thought for anyone with lingering doubts about how shady the sites can be.

    Have you experienced the same behaviour in your chatroom? Are the stats shown in this poll reflecting the opposite of what you’re seeing? Post a reply.

    For anyone wanting to post a reply, please note that your e-mail is not given out publicly, only the name you choose to post under. I’m fine with people being anonymous, as long as your posts are not defamatory, libelous, insulting, self-promotional or rude in any way.

    Customers Are Catching On 

    I was delighted to discover that customers aren’t quite as clueless as the sites give them credit for. These customers (who shall remain nameless for their own security), detailed experiences they had on Streamate. In Skype chat conversations with me, they admitted:

    member
    mia
    There was no mystery surrounding the site’s erratic, bullying behaviour toward the more strong, independent-minded camgirls, from what I could see. This aggressive stronghold afforded them power to exercise authority, maintaining control over the masses. Implementing harsh penalties for anyone who steps out of line was a common theme amongst the sites and it worked like a charm.
    It was easy to see why girls would conform. The fear of losing certain priveleges that translate directly into earnings was enough to silence most. Others (such as myself) were given a bumpier ride with that, as well as constant harassment, both on and off the platform, plus whatever was to ensue after obtaining the trademark for Amanda36c, had I not discovered their filing in the first place and opposed it.
    To back up what these members are saying, I’ll add some of my own experiences.
    Once, I noticed an influx of new girls replacing those that normally filled the top spots on the main page. Tired of the games being played on us by these sites, and being screwed over more times than I could count, I started to expose this in a blog. I’ve sat and watched the bouncing and blocking of members to my room more then enough times. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what was going on here (though don’t expect the cowardly sites to admit it).

    I remained firm in my refusal to work under a recruiter for a smaller chunk of commission on promises of higher volumes of traffic. I know how these pigs operate. You give them an inch, they’ll take a mile … and indirectly point the blame at you. Unfortunately, most girls did sign the deal with the devil. Short-term gain must have looked appealing at the time but their failure to see the big picture was the downfall that had the most impact on the longevity of that deal.
    There was another time I noticed a huge change in my room. Traffic entering would vanish immediately or before they even had the chance to type “hello” into the chat. Initially, I thought this was just a glitch but it went on for months, despite my efforts to be in compliance with the site’s recommended system requirements. Members that were persistent and finally did manage to break in, complained that they tried many times to enter my room but it wouldn’t let them in. This occurred in both free chat as well as private. They kept clicking but the system would return them to the listing. In the weeks to come, I started to notice my listing plummet further down the page. From page one, I eventually found myself on page two, being pushed further and further back. Then onto page three and eventually page four (what may as well be the site’s ‘black hole’) because by this time, not only were there no new members to my room, the regulars that were smart enough to find me outside of the site, would tell me I am no longer on their favorites list and they haven’t seen me live in months, when in fact, I was on nightly.

    Relevant to my point, below are two screenshots of cam programs whose features clearly represent the type of activity occurring. All admin panels, controlled by the sites, have the ability to kick and block users from any particular room. While I’m sure their initial purpose was designed with good intent, my own experiences show them used for a less than noble cause.

    features

    makeappear

    Having established that motive for the sites to use the kick and block feature, it would be extremely naive to assume they won’t take advantage of this great money-making opportunity. Where do the users end up when they get kicked? Back to the listings. Page 1. Who’s on page 1? Studios and recruited girls whose commissions are way lower than 35%. Some (if not all) of these studios and agencies are owned by the site itself.

    The same person paid to harass me was assigned the task of kicking and blocking members from my room, under his admin access. The whole scenario is complicated. Sometimes, it’s just wiser to keep my aces in the hole.

    You can ignore this and just keep sending send them traffic from your Twitter and Facebook accounts, wondering where it’s all disappeared to when you notice none of it is in your room, spending. I’m sure they will have no problem shelling out 35% to you, over the girls who accept so much less than that. Just the fact that there exist girls who work for less should tell us all how disposable we are to these sites and how much, in their heart of hearts, they really give a rat’s ass about us.

    They play businessmen but we all know what they really are.
