First diagnosed with ALS then Lyme disease now it is 13 years later and she is basically paralyzed from the neck down and I take care of her full time.
All of our friends left when she got sick and Eevie has been so sweet she is like family." Boggers says Eevie gives them advice about their teenage daughter, they have each other's personal phone numbers, and she's planning to visit them.
"And then there's the whole other clientele, which is married men who aren't getting laid." These demographics kind of surprised me—all the models I talked to emphasized that most of their regulars are unhappily married men or workaholics, not lonely, single social pariahs.
And to further Bambi's emphasis on the community experience, there is a community among these viewers, too.
He said one guy described the experience as "less like a strip club and more like a pub with a hot bartender who everyone wants to make laugh," which seems pretty accurate.
Another described the models as "therapists who get naked." "I think the main appeal, for both models and members, is the instant connection," Dunne wrote in an e-mail. Camming is like love on tap, and as the community grows and evolves, it only becomes more nuanced and plentiful." o what's the money like?
Eevie—like many of the models I spoke to for this article—broadcasts herself through the site My Free Cams, or MFC.
("Eevie Lain" is her screen name.) Generally speaking, models get tipped via tokens (which translate to real cash) to masturbate on camera, but they can also create "topics" that aren't sexual at all.
But almost three years later, visitors to Eevie's room still ask for the coffee stand. He replies in the group chat box: "i haven't been around all day but Sarah has been watching." I ask Eevie who Sarah is, and she says that's Boggers's wife.
For example, Eevie works only about 14 hours a week.
(She declined to disclose exactly how much she makes, but let's just say it's more than what most middle-class families earn.) From what I've heard, virtually every woman with a friendly personality is capable of making a meaningful amount of money camming if she keeps at it.
Even women with moderately reliable camming incomes, like Bambi, can sometimes earn hundreds of dollars and other times nothing at all.
(The sites that host the rooms take a significant cut of the models' tips; MFC has one of the most generous policies, taking 40 percent.) It's especially hard to calculate income when you consider how infrequently successful cam girls work.
