Nimue Allen’s Start in the Adult Industry
I started out making porn in about 2005 before finding my way into webcamming more recently. I’ve always been a bit of an exhibitionist, so when my partner at the time suggested I apply to one of the bdsm porn sites I liked watching, I thought I would give it a go. I loved my first shoot, and it very quickly lead to more, but it took another few years before I came to have the confidence to try camming. It was initially my plan to cam to raise funds to start my own website, but I enjoyed it so much, that I’ve just not got around to stopping, even though my own site has been live for several years now!
Nimue’s Personality and Interests Lead to Sex Work
I’ve always been a bit of an exhibitionist, and love performing. I’m also fascinated by kink, sex, and sexuality – so combining the two was the best thing I could imagine. I’ve been kinky for as long as I can remember, and it was my kink that led me into the adult industry.
Nimue Allen Recalls Her First Day on Cam
I remember being VERY nervous. But at the same time, also somewhat surprised that people were paying money to watch me having fun. I’ve never viewed myself as being anything particularly special – I’m not slim, tanned, blonde and big boobed – so I was surprised by the number of people telling me how sexy and attractive I am. It really made me realise that not everyone is into the same things, and that there’s a lot of people who love BBW’s (even though, when I started camming, I was a little too small to really class as a BBW!)
Nimue Allen’s Most Challenging Cam Session
The most challenging session I’ve had was a very long, very late night session. The guy takes me exclusive about 10 mins before I’m about to log off and head to bed, and spends nearly an hour with me. However, after the first 10-15 mins where I do some stuff that caters to his fetish, he keeps on telling me to “just do whatever you want to do”, with no hint of what he might enjoy. I was exhausted by this point, and couldn’t figure out what it was he actually wanted from me.
I find that sort of client incredibly difficult, because they often do want something specific, but they want *you* to want the thing they want. So as a service provider, you have to work out what it is they want, and then tell them that’s what you want. With this client, I eventually told him what I really wanted to do was to make myself come over and over again. So that’s what I did, until he eventually left, and I crawled into bed!
Nimue’s Pros and Cons of Webcam Modeling
I love the flexibility camming gives me, being able to change my working hours to suit really helps me to be able to do all the other things I want to do with my life, like spending time with my partners, and exploring other creative outlets. I also love getting to meet new people, learning about new fetishes, and helping people to accept their kinks, and not feel bad about their less mainstream desires.
One of the biggest downsides for me is freeloaders, who try to get me to give them stuff for nothing. It’s tiring to keep having to explain that while, yes, I do love the work I do, it’s still work. I cam to earn a living, and if I give it all away for free, then my bills don’t get paid, and my kitties don’t get fed!
Nimue’s Niche and Secret to Success
I’m a kinky, BBW, alt-looking girl, so I fit in a lot of niches, but I think the particular area where I shine is in heavy bdsm and humiliation shows, where I’m on the recieving end.
When I started out in porn, I was purely performing in submissive roles, and that is where most people know me from, and enjoy that sort of show with me. I’m happy to go to some pretty dark places in terms of humiliation – I’m hugely into name calling over my weight and looks, which is an area a lot of performers aren’t comfortable with – and the nastier it gets, the better I get!
How Being a Webcam Model Has Changed Nimue Allen
Being a webcam model has given me a career I love. It’s also given me a new level of confidence – it’s hard to feel down about my big belly, or my thick thighs when people are constantly telling me how sexy they are! Being able to see my fat body through the eyes of people who find it attractive, has definitely given me an appreciation for the fact that even though society tells us to be thin, to have a flat belly and thigh gap, it’s totally possible to be sexy and wanted without those things.
Nimue’s Words of Wisdom for Aspiring Camgirls
If you’re considering becoming a webcam model, it’s important to remember that once you put something out on the internet, it’s there for good, and can be found by anyone, and you need to be prepared to deal with the repercussions of that. But on a lighter note, camming can be a huge amount of fun and incredibly rewarding. Just remember that even if you don’t look like a stereotypical porn star, there will be people out there who will love you, and find you incredibly attractive!
