cam girl explains how online porn has changed in 18 years, from shaky webcams
#1

Camming — live-streaming sex shows, typically from a bedroom — has grown into one of the most lucrative parts of the adult entertainment industry, earning models upwards of $100,000 a year.

In fact, the pandemic has fueled the multi-billion dollar camming industry, as lockdowns created an audience (people who couldn't go out), and new models (people who lost jobs and sought ways to make money from home).

But long before the pandemic, and long before Beyoncé rapped about camming, there was ImLive.

ImLive, now a stalwart of the industry alongside CamSoda and OnlyFans, entered the market in August 2002, 6 years the first known "webcamming" stream JenniCam — a woman streaming her life from her room in Carlisle, Pennsylvania — went live.

The early aughts were the "wild west" of camming, ImLive vice president Adrian Stoneman told Insider. They relied on webcams, shaky internet connections, makeshift payment processes, and word-of-mouth to build up a following.



"Back then it wasn't even heard of," Stoneman told Insider last week, on the cusp of the site's 18th birthday. "If you said you went online and spoke to people and did things online and were able to get paid from it and make a living from it, they would have looked at you like you're insane."

It was a far cry from the slick productions that go viral on social media today. And few have a better perspective on that than HottyTEEN69, an ImLive camgirl who has omitted her name for privacy. She joined ImLive right at the start in 2002, and has been with them ever since, earning a full-time living.

Speaking to Insider, she explained how the market has changed as ImLive comes of age.

It is expectable that home lockdown will only boost the popularity of the Rec Cams sites. I think very soon we will be able to learn the actual statistical findings of this year. People are bored and stressed because of the pandemic and growing unemployment. And they are looking for affordable relax and entertainment. And they can easily find it on such resources.
