Model Name: FantasyNicola
Location: Ohio, USA
I cam on Streamate and sell clips on ManyVids.
I first tried phone sex about a year ago, but started camming in August. It’s going much better than phone sex did; the visual really helps.
How Nicola Pays the Bills
I live with my partner and she’s the breadwinner for us. She works in a pharmacy. But camming is what I do to make money. I’m averaging a bit over 100 bucks a week, but I don’t work as often as I could.
Nicola’s Personality and Interests Come Together in Camming
Honestly, I’m very easily bored as a person. But I’m also quite sexual and find other people’s sexuality very interesting. This sort of work keeps my interest where most simply don’t. I’ve tried traditional jobs, but I just can’t get into them. I don’t want to be folding clothes or cashiering. But I do like taking off my clothes and performing. With camming, it’s the perfect adult work for me because it’s legal and I don’t have to leave my house. Full disclosure, I’m mentally ill and traditional jobs and schedules don’t work for me very well because of it, but this allows me to do wonderfully on good days and just not work on bad days with no problems.
First Day Jitters
I was really nervous on my first day because I wasn’t sure if it would work out. I’m not the most conventionally attractive and that worried me. But I didn’t need to be worried, I got so many compliments, on my eyes, my smile, my laugh, my breasts, and my bush. Lol, that last one happens a lot. I don’t shave down there and a lot of guys really like that, apparently. I got asked to do things that I wasn’t expecting, especially to lie on my stomach and point my feet. That seemed random, but it’s apparently a foot fetish thing. Everyone was nice and it was a lot of fun.
Nicola’s Favourite Client
There’s this one client I have who is legitimately the sweetest person I’ve ever met. She comes into my free chat sometimes and we talk. She’s in her 40s and going through a divorce. She gives me the nicest compliments all the time and we chat about what it would be like if we went on a date or something like that. She would let me pick her outfit and we’d walk through the park and go to dinner. It just melts my heart.
What She Loves and Hates About Being a Webcam Model
I love the attention and compliments. I love being able to make money by showing my body and doing things that I generally otherwise enjoy. I love how sweet a lot of the clients are. As for what I hate, when clients try to fake tip me by typing in “[username] tipped you [x] gold” like that will trick me, or ask me if I’ll do things for compliments instead of money; that’s awful. Like, no. That’s not what’s going on here.
Nicola’s Niche & Secret to Success
I don’t think I’ve been working long enough to have a niche yet. But I do plenty of fetish stuff! I love clients with foot fetishes especially, they’re so much fun. I try to keep an open mind and a positive attitude. I’m in the “hairy” category and I do get tons of guys who are just excited to see my pubic hair.
How Camming Affects Nicola’s Personal Relationships
I’ve decided to be open about it in general. Most of my family and friends know and I’m not keeping it a secret from anyone. I’ve gotten mixed reactions from people. My partner is completely supportive and happy about what I’m doing. We talk about clients I have and she loves hearing funny stories. My parents on the other hand, not so thrilled. But they aren’t really happy with anything I do, so I’m not surprised. Yeah, there’s a stigma and people respond to it, but all my important people know better than to be so judgmental.
How Being a Camgirl Has Changed Nicola
Well, I’ve gotten a little better at unapologetically setting boundaries. If I don’t want to do something, I’m not going to do it, and I don’t have a problem telling someone that, be it at work or in my personal life. It’s gotten much easier for me. Also, this has really given me some intense examples of male entitlement, so that was good for my feminism.
Nicola’s Words of Wisdom For New Webcam Models
Remember to have fun and take care of yourself. Some clients will be the sweetest people ever and some will be absolute assholes who want to get something for nothing and don’t respect you. But you’re in charge of what you do, not them.
