The history of Eevie's camming career is collective, a mutual memory that builds and changes with the people she's connected to, and the stories Eevie told me were my first exposure to how personal and meaningful camming relationships can become. (Sarah's name has been changed for this article.) Boggers asks if Eevie has told me "their story." He explains over private message: "Eevie has been great, we liked her from the first time we saw her just a real genuine person not fake and all about the tokens and stuff.One person Eevie seems excited to see in her room is Boggers (that's his chat screen name). Which was really nice for us because my wife got sick 13 years ago at age 23.
I talked to someone who cammed with his partner off and on for about a year, under the name dadandson69, on the site Cam4.
Only after they gained a significant following did they start making any money, and even then it was only about $40 to $50 a day.
We get a Snapchat a few minutes later from Boggers—it's a photo of middle-aged couple, the woman in a wheelchair, both smiling into the camera and waving, captioned "hi interviewer." "There's another couple I wound up getting really close to," Eevie tells me after I meet Boggers and Sarah.
"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.
"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...
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. 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.She makes almost 0 in the 45 minutes I'm with her, and she doesn't do much besides talk to me (offscreen) about camming.It varies wildly, though several models I spoke to said that on MFC, the average is an hour.This "average," however, includes the models in the top rooms making six figures a month and those making less than a cent an hour.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.
