("Eevie Lain" is her screen name.) Generally speaking, models get tipped via tokens (which translate to real cash) to masturbate on camera, but they can also create "topics" that aren't sexual at all.Right now, Eevie's goal topic is taking off her dress, and most of the tips coming in are for her topic of drinking wine."They were a younger couple, they had a 2-year-old boy at the time, and they'd been trying to get pregnant again for like a year, and it wasn't working.They watched me, sometimes together and sometimes separate." When the couple finally got pregnant and received the results of the gender test, "They made a video of them opening the envelope together and sent it to me that day, and they named their little girl Eevie Juliet." It's not that crazy to imagine this kind of intimacy and fondness developing between long-distance friends over years—what's surprising is that these connections grew out of a form of sex work.A cam session is usually hours long, and most of that is spent talking."Even when I was camming vigorously almost every day to raise money for my move, I would still only masturbate [on camera] maybe four times a month," said another cam model I met with who goes by the screen name Bambi. Especially if you're a medium-income cam girl, it's a lot more about the community...One person Eevie seems excited to see in her room is Boggers (that's his chat screen name).

Eevie—like many of the models I spoke to for this article—broadcasts herself through the site My Free Cams, or MFC.This "average," however, includes the models in the top rooms making six figures a month and those making less than a cent an hour.Even women with moderately reliable camming incomes, like Bambi, can sometimes earn hundreds of dollars and other times nothing at all.

She's wearing a little black dress and drinking merlot from a shatterproof wineglass one of her viewers sent her after she'd broken a real one on camera.And to further Bambi's emphasis on the community experience, there is a community among these viewers, too.The men recognize each other in rooms, greet each other, and start friendships and feuds. If I do have some basic or random guest who's like, 'Show me your asshole,' these guys will be like, 'Get the fuck out of here.' It's a community of people jerking off to you, but they're also your homies.Neither she nor her viewers seem in a hurry to reach the topic.Most of her viewers right now are her "friends," who seem happy just to hang out, listen to her talk, and reminisce about their shared stories. "People still come into my room asking about the coffee stand," says Eevie.If you're just interested in hanging out all night because you just got off work and you have no girlfriend or friends, then it's a nice two hours.We talk, I make jokes, we listen to music, and I smoke weed and they can drink with me or smoke with me, and it's kind of like hanging out.
