Interview with ShanaStorm
Hi Shana, how old are you and where are you from?
My real age is 36, I live in New England in the USA. I have been camming since 2011.
Is webcam modelling your only job or do you do other things beside it?
No, I have a fulltime career type job during the day. I cam approximately two plus hrs ea nite, plus am weekends and some weekend days. I started camming to supplement my income to get a boob enhancement.
Do you tell your friends/family you are a cam model?
My family doesn't know I cam, I told one gf about me camming, unfortunately, she in turn told her BF, who eventually became an ex BF, and he stalked me on my cam site.... so now, I tell no one!
How did you come in contact with the cambusiness?
I was doing toy reviews for a major seller, also hosted some home type toy info and sale parties. I came across the camming industry from that site.
How would you describe yourself as a cam girl?
....Attractive, sexy, outgoing and really love sex and my sexuality. I also did some porn shoots.....to boost my income, for my boob enhancement Camming made me more comfortable doing porn and I know it helped me camming.
Where can we see you and how long have you been working there?
Right now, I'm only on SM.......been my main site for over five years....I have an account on Naked, also looked into a few other sites.
Have you also been working on different sites?
I started on LJ........now I will only work on ppm sites, IMO the token sites bring out the cheap dudes. Seems they think, or want us to think, their tokens are worth far more then they are....
Do you also have a personal website?
I did have a personal website, but the time required to keep it updated was an additional pressure on my time.....so I let it go.
Do you have a special room prepared in your house for your shows?
I don't want to work where I sleep........so.....I use a small room, aka, my junk room. I can leave all my equipment setup and I keep the room locked. I am limited, as other then the bed, the room is unattractive.
How was your first modelling experience?
I spent too much time researching sites, prob about five months. So......one nite I finally started on Naked. Yeah, the guys seemed to know I was new, and tried to take advantage of me. Quick verbal comebacks started working for me almost from day one....I made money the first nite.....I was hooked!
Does being a cam model interfere with your personal (sex) life?
....My former BF was ok with me camming, actually he thought it was dumb! But he did help, but would not perform with me. Said he had performance anxiety!
..Now I am reluctant to tell guys that I date about my adult biz........I try to get their real,attitude toward the sex biz
What's the most appealing thing about your job?
I can work from home at the hours that I want. I really like interacting with most guys....
What do you like least about your job?
Guys that are insulting, rude and cheap!
If you could do it all over again with all the knowledge you have now, would you still be a cam model?
Yes I would, I hope to write an article on camming, with an emphasis on "How To Fail As A Cam Model"!
What's your view on the cam industry in general?
Customer service to models can be problematic, SM is awesome though.....
Too many models are giving it all up in free! Though prohibited by most cam sites, it's all too common.
Do you have a funny story or experience to share?
....More then once, guys have tried to criticize my boob size, 34D, my usual response is what are you looking for? Want me to throw them over my shoulder?
Then there was the time I was unaware that the guys were not in paid.....they loved the show, but never again!
What are your plans for the future besides cam modeling?
...I have a career type job, but I know I can still make money camming, will continue as long as the income is decent.
Any tips for new cam girls?
...Positive attitude, feel sexy......it shows thru. Don't cam if your having a bad day,
What's your motto?
