Lusty Lark Meets the Adult Industry
A couple years ago a friend suggested to me that I should get into the industry when I was between jobs. I did a bunch of research and decided I just might be good at this.
Is Camming Lark’s Main Source of Income?
How Much Does Lusty Lark Make on Cam?
It varies depending on how often I work.
I average a couple hundred bucks in a couple hours on Streamate but Chaturbate is hit or miss. YouKandy, Manyvids and other clipsites are awesome for passive income but fluctuate depending on my abilty to produce videos.
Lusty Lark’s Personality Comes Together on Cam
I am very outgoing, bubbly, sexual and very open about my sexuality. I also think I have been very active online for years on adult sites. I am a natural exhibitionist so it just really made sense. I wonder why I didn’t think about it myself first. Hahaha
Lusty Lark’s Experience as a New Model
I was very thankful that I did a bunch of research before starting so I was able to avoid being conned by the “men” who prey on new camgirls. Also, it helped with expectations about how I would do on cam. I mean you always hear those outlandish numbers about how much money cam models make. And yes, some do but they have to have been working for a while and fulfill a specific niche. This is by no means an easy business. You get out of it what you put in. And some people really just aren’t made for it. Most cam models only last two weeks before they fade back into obscurity.
A Challenge Lark Deals With on Cam
I think the hardest thing to deal with is people who want to do things that are outside your comfort zone. Never, ever do this. Make sure you stick to your ideals at all times as it isn’t worth any amount of money.
What Lusty Lark Loves and Hates About Webcam Modeling
Pros: Flexible work schedule, no boss, you run the show
Cons: Freeloaders, rude people, when sites don’t work (and other technological issues)
Lark’s Niche and Secret to Success
The most obvious niche I fit into is Huge Natural Breasts. Also, I market myself as the MILF Next Door. You know, someone that is attainable and natural. Additionally, because I am a small BBW I tend to have fans that are into BBWs and into curvy chicks who are not so big. This really helps expand my fan base.
Webcam Modeling and Lark’s Personal Relationships
I honestly put family first. I tend to change my schedule a lot based on what is going on in my life but this can lead to some serious hits to my income. It can certainly be a challenge being a single mother and a cam model. Especially when my child is sick or is home from school for other reasons. Also, if I cam at night it can be a challenge the next day to be awake and alert enough to be the “optimum parent.” The biggest thing you need to remember is self care or you will no longer be a service to yourself or your family.
How Being a Camgirl Has Changed Lusty Lark
I think the biggest thing that has changed for me is that I have become more of a homebody. I should really make more of an effort to get out and be more social outside of the house.
I have also become more aware of the variety of different fetishes out there. I think the psychology graduate in me finds this the most fascinating aspect about being a cam model.
Lusty Lark’s Words of Wisdom for New Cam Models
Research, research, research. I can’t emphasize this enough. There is so much more to camming then just turning on your cam and dressing in sexy clothes. You need to learn about how to hustle, technology, marketing yourself, about fetishes, things to avoid, different cam sites, different forms of passive income, etc.
