I Have Stretch Marks. Can I Still Be a Webcam Model?

Hey Cat, I’ve been watching a lot of the girls lately to see if this is something I’d like to do. They all seem so perfect. Great hips, small waist and big boobs. While I’d still like to do it I have to ask about stretch marks and one awful scar I have on my stomach. They don’t bother me so much but will they bother the gentlemen? Think deep depression scar above pubic area. I had a tummy tuck and got necrosis. I haven’t had it revised yet.

Hi Simoriah,

 

It may seem a trite thing to say, but I honestly believe that confidence is sexier than any “great hips.” Your question hits a chord with so many potential camgirls’ fears about a physical flaw, myself included.

 

As for your stretch marks and scar, you are not alone! So many ladies have expressed similar concerns going into webcam modeling. I solicited some honest feedback from just a few of the ladies over at WeCamgirls. Here’s what they had to say about your situation.

 

None of us are perfect! We all have marks, scars, sizes that may bother us. But I just wouldn’t focus on it. Depending on the color and contrast, makeup can do wonders.

Attitude trumps everything else. Be positive, sexy… and customers will come.

 

I am pretty much in the same situation. I worried at first, but in the end it didn’t matter at all.

 

I was really self conscious of my body before I started camming. I got really bad stretch marks from my pregnancies and I still hate them, but guys either overlook it, or they love them. Of course there will be guys that make fun, but the good guys definitely outweigh the bad ones. I have learned to love my body, flaws and all.

 

I’m 80 or so pounds overweight and I have stretch marks on my hips and my belly. My belly is also big enough that I am sometimes mistaken for being pregnant. I don’t do mass camming on a site like Streamate, I do individual shows on Skype only. I’m sure on a big site, I’d hear more comments. No one has ever mentioned my stretch marks at all. And I get a decent amount of shows. Including phone sex calls, most days I get 10-20 calls and shows (most are shows). Occasionally someone mentions my belly – but 9 times out of 10, it comes up because the caller LOVES my belly.

 

One lady made a suggestion that if you are nervous or feeling self conscious about your scar, you could try covering it with sexy clothing until your confidence grows. A corset or waist cincher might help, for example.

 

The point here is that we all have something that we want to hide about ourselves, but in the end we’ll all find that we didn’t need to hide at all. This I can say from experience as someone with extremely small boobs. I armed myself with padded bras when I first decided to try webcam modeling, but I didn’t need them.

 

 

The gentlemen who are worth your time will not be bothered by your stretch marks or scar.

 

Thank you for asking your question. I hope this answer is helpful to you. Please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions or concerns you’d like addressed.

      Hi! It’s a common misconception that being “toned” is part of the camgirl job requirements. It is not. Having stretch marks does not need to hinder your success. You’re right that lighting is important and I would recommend looking on youtube for some simple “3 point lighting” tips. We’ll cover this topic here soon as well. You’ll get out of this job what you put into it. Hope this helps!

    I have them on my thighs, arms, waist, legs and stomach. It gets so frustrating sometimes I want to just quit but I’m a determined person and I believe that I am hot because people tell me that and I know I will be a lot harder if I didn’t have the stretch marks and if I didn’t have the stretch marks I wouldn’t have to do cam modeling so it’s a challenge for me but at the end of the day I know that I’m still hot I just have flaws that I have not come to realization with the yet. My question is that I always have to wear long sleeves because I’m very insecure about the stretch marks on my arms like how can you be sexy when you have sleeves on all the time? Could you answer that Cat?

      First of all, I applaud you for not quitting over this and for trying to find solutions instead. I understand that the stretch marks are hard on your confidence, but let me remind you that confidence is sexier than anything physical.
       
      I don’t think you need to hide, but I definitely understand the feeling. Instead of always wearing long sleeves, maybe try some accessory like some sexy arm warmers – I found some that actually look pretty nice. Check these out.
       
      Of course we are our own worst critics, so I bet your guys wouldn’t even be bothered if you decided to let go of the insecurity and say fuck it, I’m hot! 😀

        Hi Cat It’s me again Nina And I just wanted to let you know that last night was my first night Showing my bare skin on cam my arms. Tonight I will be wearing two piece lingerie set. I decided yesterday That I was not going to let my stretch marks control my life anymore they are part of me which I love And I know that long as I have the right lighting They won’t be able to be seen anyway because they are really light So I just wanted to thank you For a freeing me of five years Of torturing myself Hiding my body Not enjoying things I wanted to do n not feeling free. I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart For helping me Realize that if I don’t accept myself How can I expect anybody else to or any of my customers to online to So thank you so much Cat. I’m sexy n I’m so hot stretch marks don’t matter Besides cats are sexy..lol I’m a sexy little human tiger

    Wow checked in today to see this. Actually made me cry a little. You go above, beyond, and probably out of your way to answer a question. I have a lot of respect for you as a woman. Thank you doesn’t even come close to what I feel right now but all I can express in writing. So thank you.
