    Do you know if you are able to block specific regions on twitter?

    • Cat May 05, at 11:57

      No, Twitter does not offer geographic restrictions.

    Ladies, a new site has just launched! I would love to have you become a “babe.” There is a 70% payout, you receive tips, can do privates and we also have a game that will be very popular. If you have any questions message me! Check out the page at […really? Redacted].

    I was really debating becoming a cam girl and have come back to your articles serveral times , they’re super helpful in my decision. My only this is , I don’t feel like I have the body for it. I’m not over weight but I am a 21 yr old mother of two kiddos. So my breast are definitely not perky , but that’s my only dilemma. Do you think this would be a problem, also I only have a Mac apple laptop… would that webcam work?

    • Cat April 19, at 07:18

      There’s a lot of misconception around what “body type” is acceptable for cam work. I think this post may help you with some context on that.
      You’ll need an external cam for best results. Check out this post for more info and some recommendations. Just make sure to get something compatible with Mac.
      Hope this helps! And thanks for checking out O Camgirl.

    Just wanted to say thank you! I’ve been thinking about camming for almost 2 years now, but I’ve been too nervous.
    After reading your article how-to-conversation-for-the-socially-awkward-camgirl (and many, many others but without this one, I wouldn’t have been able to do it!), I turned on my cam and became myself, but with no shame or insecurity. I even got 175 followers my first show and made a decent chunk. It was so much fun and I feel more self confident than I ever have and I was only on for two hours! ! appreciate your site for helping me to over come my fear and take the plunge.

    • Cat December 06, at 21:12

      How wonderful! I’m so happy to hear that O Camgirl helped you overcome your initial fear about camming, and that your first broadcast went so well. That’s really awesome. Thanks so much for taking the time to share. 🙂

    hi i’m really interested in becoming a cam girl but i’m not sure which site is legit. Do you think you could put me on the right path??

    • Cat August 28, at 10:12

      Hi Scarlettletter,
      We’ve reviewed a few sites for you here. My personal favourite is Chaturbate. Let me know if you need any more help with this.

    Hi! I am English and currently live in England and I was wondering about payment as in would the dollars be converted to pounds automatically or is that something I have to do after I get the money?
    Also is a british accent a particular fetish I can use and cash in on?
    Thanks xxx

    • Cat August 25, at 09:52

      Hi Katerina!

      Most sites pay out in US dollars and depending on the payment method you’ll convert to your currency when you deposit it. If you use Payoneer (I highly recommend this as an International payment option), the conversion happens automatically when you use the card or withdraw the cash from an ATM.
      I wouldn’t call your accent a fetish – however a lot of members will absolutely adore you for it and it’s certainly something you can benefit from advertising in hashtags and your profile. 🙂

      Thanks for reading O Camgirl!

    Hey! So I was curious to hear your over-all opinions on the sites I-CAMZ and MongoCams? Thanks! xoxo

    • Cat July 31, at 08:54

      Hi Lolani! I-CAMZ is just a Streamate studio. Streamate itself is good, but in general I recommend staying away from studios and signing up with them directly. MongoCams appears to be a fairly new, small site. Check out our cam site reviews for more options. Thanks for stopping by! -Cat

      • Lorain Wild August 03, at 15:26

        Thanks for the advice Cat, after some further research as well I’m starting to get a little more of a hang of what are sites, studios, and agencies. So far I’m on chaturbate, and have broadcasted a few nights already & just got approved for streamate and in the process of signing up for mygirlfund. I honestly could not have done this without the help from o cam girl. Thanks so much for creating this blog <3 Wish me luck! hehe – Lolani Wild

  8. Abbey September 16, at 22:26

    Hi Cat! I love your site. I’m a camgirl – sort of part-time at the moment – who has recently started her own recruiting agency. We’re not a studio, just a few camgirl friends from college who wanted to help aspiring models avoid the mistakes we made, and of course make money.

    We recruit for 5Points, Internet Modeling, Chaturbate, etc. Never have they taken a model’s commision to pay us. We either get a lifetime commission paid by the studio/agency, or we get a flat fee. This never comes out of the camgirls’ pockets, as far I have ever known.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Cat September 16, at 22:40

      Hi Abbey! Thank you for your kind comments. If you are recruiting for studios/agencies who are recruiting for the actual cam sites, I would wager that they are taking a cut of the models’ check to pay themselves if not you. I do know this for a fact about Internet Modeling. I do appreciate your comments. Best of luck with your recruiting! Cat

    • Cat August 15, at 23:22

      Hi Nikita,
      They are a studio that sets you up with Streamate and takes 43% of your earnings. As always I recommend signing up direct and take out the middle man! Best.
