During the process of learning how to become a webcam girl, one of the questions you may be asking yourself is: can I cam without showing my face? After all, camming is a great way to earn cash while meeting new people. However, given the sexual nature of webcam modelling, you may not feel comfortable putting your face on camera at first. Therefore, it’s a popular choice by some camgirls to go anonymous and not show their face at all.
Before you make your decision to go incognito, it’s important to understand some of the drawbacks and benefits of hiding your face on cam. Here at Off The Record models – a leading webcam model management agency in the UK, we have supported and mentored many women through the journey to become a webcam girl. This includes providing them with the tools and advice needed to be successful in this industry.
Here are the advantages and disadvantages to being an unidentified cam model from the camgirls at Off The Record Models:
Hidden identities avoid friends and family from finding out.
There are a number of ways you can hide your identity while on a webcam. These include using a different name and changing your home location. As a result, you can keep people you know from finding out about your webcam work – if that’s what you’re concerned about.
Allow yourself to be carefree.
With your identity hidden, you can be exactly who you want to be. You can create your own persona! For example, one of our camgirls who uses a fake name and location said: “The benefits I have found of being anonymous is that I can be this professional and serious woman at work, but then when on cam I can let my hair down and be someone carefree and fun without judgment! It’s really exhilarating and I enjoy living this double life! It is not because I am not proud to be a cam model. I really am and am proud to be part of OTR, it’s more just to protect my status at work.”
Anonymity works great for specific niches.
You may not want to show your face but there are other areas of your body which can work well for webcam models. If you are happy to get naked and perform sexual acts on camera with little to no chatting then that will work for you. In the experience of Chastity Rose: “My sister has an Only Fans and she only shows her feet and legs. She is disabled and so she markets herself for foot fetishes and disability fetishes.”
Prepare for a lower viewership.
As a webcam model who is unidentifiable, you should expect to see a smaller pool of viewers than if you were to show your face. One of our camgirls said: “I have to keep fairly anonymous for my full-time job as I work in the NHS and it would be extremely frowned upon if it came out. That being said, I do have my face in pictures and understand that this would enable me to be found. That is a risk I am willing to take! I make sure my location and name is completely different and I do not slip up when on cam. I also check everyone’s location when they come into cam with me, so if anyone is from my area, I kick them out immediately.”
You could accidentally reveal information.
Many anonymous camgirls have mentioned to us that this type of camming can make things worrisome and stressful. What is supposed to be considered a fun and entertaining career with no judgement or worries can be made difficult by anonymity. For example, if people start to question your location, you may slip up and give away your actual location. Therefore, you will need to do some research into the details of the character you are essentially playing and keep this information in mind when camming.
Viewers want to build a connection.
Despite what many people might say, webcam modelling is all about the connection between you and the viewers. For Camilla West, one of our most successful camgirls, she started off by not showing her face on a webcam. However, it was clear that “the guys want to see what you look like in your photos before clicking into your chat room. Once I’d started uploading photos including my face, I got a lot more calls!” This is because the connection is made easier when they can see your face.
