As a writer, nothing is off-limits. Well, some things are off-limits. Those that are just morally bankrupt and totally depraved are not going to see the light of day by my pen.
Years ago, a lady who followed me on Twitter said she was a cyber slut in her bio.
When I read that, I followed her link and was surprised to learn of an industry that was in its infancy. Webcam work was turning into a real thing.
My Free Cams is where she worked, and I think they were a pioneer in this industry. On any given night, there might be a few hundred models, and I am certain thousands of audience members.
I had just read 50 shades and was working on Cyber Subs when this came to light.
Why write about sex workers? Why not. We have enjoyed nude actors in films for eons. The porn industry is huge. We are sexual creatures.
The pandemic has more than probably driven more people to different-sex sites than any other thing to date.
As a writer, I am always on the hunt for material for stories. I want that material to come from life, not from the TV or other books. If it comes from real life, it will be dynamic and reflect the times in which we live.
I wrote two how-to books on the subject after investigating what these models were doing. Since my last book, Camming for Couples, I have learned that there are tons of these sites out there. These concepts apply.
Entertainment and business are concepts that get lost with many of these people. Simply turning the camera on and pushing broadcast isn’t going to do it.
I am focusing my attention on other novels and genres. I wrote those two books and kept them inexpensive, so those that choose to play in this fashion have some formulas on what works.
If I were to give out one free piece of advice, it would be this, ‘have fun with it.’
Imagine sitting around in your bra and panties with the camera focused on you. Engaging your audience as if they were all lovers might bring them back as regulars.
The book is worth the price of a cup of coffee. Many buy the e-book and then turn right around and buy the paperback version. I don’t know why but they do.
My friend who followed me sent me down that rabbit trail for a while. A few of my novels have that aspect of life as a plot or subplot.
Imagine playing strip poker with tens of thousands of people instead of your college friends.
My newest material does not include this plot device. I do see this phenomenon as a cultural shift in the way we think.
I would like to see more clothing-optional beaches and places than we have today. I am an artist. The human body takes on a different dimension for me.
Too bad we can’t use Zoom for this. I would wager that people might show up in time if we could.
Much love -TW
