Main site I work on: Chaturbate

 

Anna Meets the Webcam Modeling Industry

 

Before webcamming, I had no intentions of working in the adult industry, so I had no experience at all (I hadn’t even watched porn before I signed up)! I was just a young, sexually frustrated girl already sick and tired of the 9-5 lifestyle. One of my closest friends told me about her job as a cam model, and I was so intrigued that I asked a million questions and even researching the subject on Youtube and Google, but I still kept telling her “oh there’s no way I could do something like that” but that was such a lie. In early June 2016, I ended up quitting my job at the retirement home (for managerial issues), so I decided to start camming. I did one show with my friend, and I knew it was the job for me. I ended up doing a solo show that night.

 

How Anna Lee Simms Pays Her Bills

 

As of now, [camming] is my only source of income, and will probably remain my main source throughout college.

 

Anna’s Head for Business Leads to Camming

 

I have always been business-minded and knew that I would be my own boss one way or another.

 

Anna’s First Day on Cam

 

I was spending the night at my friend’s house, as I do often, and I told her that I had already signed up for Chaturbate and she was super excited to help me out! We set up a game of sexy Wheel of Fortune. It felt a little awkward when the show first started, since I was a bit shy, but it made me even more loveable and the compliments and tips started coming in. We didn’t make any sexual contact (besides eating strawberries off each other) but it was still successful. After she went to bed, I decided to play a game of strip dice while doing yoga. It was just as successful, even though I was still a bit nervous. After I came back home, I got more and more comfortable each night, and from the start (and even now) I rarely ever missed a night. Creating fun shows and exploring my sexuality became a nightly goal, as well as building a fanbase and business.

 

Anna Lee Simms Encounters Her First Scammer

 

One of my first nights on the job, I was getting ready to call it a day after playing a game (I believe it was wheel of fortune) since the chat room slowed down quite a bit, but I got an offer to do a “private show” for 500 tokens (which is worth $25 to the model) which was actually a password show, but I was a bit naive to the settings of the website. Basically, I was scammed into doing a private show absolutely free. After it happened and I caught on, I got so angry, so I shut my laptop and took time to relax. Then, I went back onto my public broadcast and just sat and chatted with my audience. I told them the whole story, and I was tipped and complimented so much more than before just for being so nice and inspirational to everyone. Plus, I was ranked really high that night and had a lot of people coming in the room, just to chat with me!

 

What Anna Loves and Hates About Being a Camgirl

 

One of the only cons is the inconsistency of payments. I made over $100 one night, and literally made one dime the next. Of course, I always make enough to pay my rent, but I can’t guarantee a set amount each day or each paycheck. The only other cons I have noticed are unsolicited photos or violating questions being sent to me on my social media. This isn’t a daily thing, but it’s not very uncommon either. I just ignore them or report them and move on with my day.

 

The pros very much outweigh the cons in my situation at least. Simply being paid for exploring my sexuality, building a fan base, and chatting with new and returning friends is a dream come true for me. There is also a lot I am learning about such as self-discipline and accountability since I set my own hours and what I put in is what I get out. I consider that a plus.

 

Anna’s Niche and Keys to Success

 

I am more of the sensual, submissive, silly, feminine type of model. I attract a lot of people that are genuinely friendly and want me more as a girlfriend than a sex buddy. I’m even said to be cat-like and adorable with lots of refreshing positive energy! Genetics aren’t everything, but they can be a big factor as well. Since I am a natural redhead and very young, I am already part of a couple specific niches. Since I know the styles that work for me, I can focus on expressing them more. For example, I now buy mainly light-colored babydoll clothing, I am working on a light-colored room, and I have my webpage set up with a pastel background and bio!

 

Webcam Modeling and Anna’s Personal Relationships

 

I try to be as open as I can, so I have already told my closest friends, a few other random friends, and my immediate family. My father was the only one with an upset reaction to my job, which is understandable for a father like him. Everyone else found it really cool and exciting! I’ve had some of my friends annoyingly talk about how hot they think it is, but it didn’t bother me too much after I stopped paying attention. However, I do have a backup job (basically a lie) that I tell some people that are just far too conservative to understand the sex industry in general, or people that I just feel awkward telling such as my teachers, ex coworkers, strangers, and some classmates. I also am available to make plans more often without having to beg for time off work, and my family loves the fact that they can see me more often.

 

How Webcam Modeling Has Affected Anna Lee Simms

 

Even though it has only been a couple months so far, I feel FAR more comfortable with my body and sexuality than ever before, and I am more in control of my own life. I do find myself getting a bit lazy which ties into the whole self-discipline aspect since I work from the comfort of my own bedroom, but I am finding a good balance, and I expect to be a lot more active in the coming school year.

 

Anna’s Words of Wisdom for New Cam Models

 

Be true to yourself. If you never want to be nude, you never have to and can still be super successful. If you do want to get naked, that’s amazing too! If you want to do something outside of the box (or inside of the box) just do it. It’s very transparent if you’re trying to be the perfect model that you’re not or trying way too hard to be different, but it’s also transparent when you ARE being yourself and people absolutely adore that.

 

 

I have a few more tips for webcam models that I find are very important:

 

  • NEVER do any service without being tipped first. This includes gift cards. Redeem, THEN do the service.

 

  • Make sure your email address, social media accounts, and webpages don’t reveal your real birthdate, name, or location, and keep things away from view such as clothing that reveals your school name, street signs, certificates, family photos, etc.

 

  • Know what is allowed and not allowed for each website you use. Some things may surprise you, like what kind of toys you can use or who you can have in your room with you.

 

  • Never do meetups alone, and keep it in public (I suggest never to do meetups outside of an expo).

 

Thank you, Anna!
