    So how much money do web cam guys make?

    Now that we've learned you can make a huge amount of money (or hardly any at all) on YouTube, do any of you guys know what the top web cam performers bring in? What's the average? I assume it's hugely lucrative for the companies that run the sites, but what about the guys who spend hours (or so it seems) on camera attempting to get viewers to pay to see them jack off?

    Re: So how much money do web cam guys make?

    From befriending a few, most make a pittance, but in a foreign country with depressed economies, that pittance can be enough to keep them in pot, or living in mom & dad's home while not working. A lot of them are gym rats without careers and just want to not have to work. Unsurprisingly, many are completely straight but looking to financially exploit their favorite thing, their bodies and their muscles. Others have no fake physiques, but enjoy the micro-celebrity.

    A few do it for supplemental income.

    And, the very very few, handle audiences well enough to become sort of stars within the cam world and are actually favored and sponsored by their host site, and appear at conventions for porn, etc.

    In one way, it is good for fans of amateur porn that the internet has democratized the industry. And, it affords a lot of men who don't want to dabble in actual prostitution as consumers to flirt with guys with no harm, without all that great "ambiance" of strip joints. And, it's a sign of the times, with a generation that prefers texting to actual conversation and talking, it allows a forum of interaction with nothing more than texts and a one-way Skype-ish format.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Some of the guys appear in what look to be small cubicles minimally furnished and decorated. I have an image in my mind of a warehouse space in, for example, Prague or Madrid, filled with this spaces, but on second thought, this just seems almost too bizarre to be real...

    It depends. The ones who sit impatient demanding money never get anywhere. It depends on the model/master/alpha (whatever) and the viewer themselves. I don’t do cam much anymore as that’s more a newbie thing. Back then on average I would say 300-400 a week. I’ve had weeks where I’ve made 900 or 2300. And I would have a month making 800.

    Although my fan base is larger, this is a young man’s game. What I make now is anywhere from 700-3000 a month. I have bad months where I make 400 and good months of 6 grand. After almost a decade things have shifted. We’ve seen a wave of trolls giving the rest of us a bad name not even knowing the true nature of domination or power of seduction. Not all of us are robotic machines with a script. A lot of the “troll wave” or so consists of scam artists that has tainted the industry in so many ways. It’s become dangerous almost. I’ve heard and witnessed so many sad and disturbing things.

    Also, if you work on a major site like flirt4free or livejasmin (I hated their system!) you are going to get totally screwed. Also depends on the website or if you are operating independently. That’s why I say those cam sites are for newbies. Corporate cam boys tend to be inexperienced.Coming from someone in that business, thought you’d like info coming from the horse’s mouth.

    Not at all. There are most certainly syndicates operating such studios in St. Petersburg in Russia, and surely elsewhere. They often have straight men who are in debt and working it off. You can tell the St. P. ones more easily, as they have very dated wall paper and often velvet upholstery like an old-world brothel.

    Most of what happens on cams is boring like bad porn. It's the exception to find a man who understands the power of the medium and engages with his fans and enjoys being an entertainer too.

    A part of their audience is there for live porn, but an even greater part is there for chat, as many countries still have gay shaming and many closeted men have no coffee shop or place to go to hear other gay men, etc., much less flirt.

    I would venture to guess that true kink cams make money on a different scale that the jerk off cam sites.

    You bit it on the nail. Some of the guys I talk to are lonely people. It’s sctually sad how some of these people have low self-esteem. Sometimes I get close to to them and I do care about them as human beings. Some wanna get off to seeing me do whatever they’re into on private cam. I don’t have to report to a company. I tried to bargain with sites for a higher percentage after I developed a solid base but got nowhere. So I told them to fuck off. They still profit off my original videos and I don’t make a dime.

    You have to enjoy actually doing it and getting into the mind of the other person.
