How to Protect Your Privacy as a Performer

It’s easy to get hooked on the fame that comes along with being a top webcam model. After all, who doesn’t want to wake up every day and get glammed up for adoring fans who can’t wait to spoil you with tips, tokens, and gifts? With celebrity, however, comes the responsibility of keeping yourself and your loved ones safe from fans who could become a little overzealous about the prospect of meeting you in person. That’s why it’s important to ensure your privacy is protected at all times, even if you have an online career that requires you to be in the public eye. At Cams.com, we care about the safety of all models, so we made a list of easy ways you can stay safe while loving what you do.

Keep Your Personal Social Media Accounts Private

One of the most important things you can do as a webcam model is to ensure your real name and social media accounts are protected. Set all your personal accounts to “private” and remove your real last name as an extra line of security if someone does find your personal profiles. You should also avoid tagging your location in posts when you’re out and about, as you don’t want to provide the general public with information about where you are and where you like to hang out.

Keep Personal and Professional Photos Separate

Your success as a webcam model relies heavily on the sexy photos you post, so by all means, feel free to post away. Just be sure not to use any pics that are also posted to your private accounts, however. You may have a few shots you love and want to share with your fans, but if a fan decides to use one for a Google Image Search, it will lead them right to your personal social media accounts, your real identity, and worse yet, your loved ones. Be sure to check the background of each photo as well to ensure you’re not giving away your location, as simple things like street signs and local landmarks can lead people right to you.

Don’t Reveal Your Location During Shows

It can be easy to slip up during a hot chat and reveal your location, so exercise caution when getting chummy with your favorite members. Even something as simple as mentioning a local event you attended or a hangout you like to frequent can be enough to tip someone off on where they can find you.

If a Fan Sends You a Link, Don’t Open it

It can be tempting to click on links sent to you by fans during free chat or even a private show but avoid opening them at all costs, even if they’re sent by a member you know well. One simple click can make it possible for a fan to find your IP address and pinpoint your exact location. So rather than having them show up at your favorite restaurant or bar and waiting for you outside, they could potentially show up at your door, which is something no cam model wants to deal with.

Make Sure Nothing That Gives Away Your Location is in View

Ensure your camming space is free from anything that could give away your location, such as local posters or even memorabilia from your hometown sports teams. If you’re broadcasting near a window, also make sure nothing is visible that could make it easy for someone to find you. Something as simple as a landmark or building outside your window could provide a map right to your camming space.

Use the Tools Your Platform Provides

Platforms like Cams.com offer geoblocking services, so don’t be afraid to use them if you want to block people in your local area from viewing your webcam room. If you want to exchange messages with a top fan and let them know when you’re going to be online, stick to the private messaging feature your platform provides, rather than communicating via other social mediums you have less control over.

These tips make it easy to protect your privacy and enjoy your time online. Until next time, stay safe! Read more articles here

Next toy generation: WOOD

It’s a thing!
Bioplastic toys are being reinvented, and everything is going green!

Until now, sex toys were largely made of plastic and silicone, some of them even having included in their components phthalates.

But not anymore! Sex toy companies are quickly readapting their product lines to respond to environmental issues, now offering their premium products in greener, recyclable, and sometimes even biodegradable materials.

In the lead-up to World Environment Day on June 5, why not choose a more natural accessory for helping you reach the height of pleasure?

Taking care of yourself care be seen in a positive way, but it can be seen even better if you do it in an environmentally friendly way.
Due to the pollution intensity, like other industries such as fashion and cosmetics, sex toy companies are rethinking their production models in order to reduce their impact on the environment.
Until now, erotic toys have been made on a large scale of plastic and silicone, and components have even included phthalates — those polluting materials and chemical compounds that can, on top of it all, be sources of allergies and other irritations. And that’s before we even talk about the batteries that need to be replaced regularly — or not — depending on the use of the toy.

Such observations have prompted many brands in this domain to reinvent themselves and unveil greener alternatives. Not content with offering safer devices since last fall thanks to the introduction of the first international standard dedicated to sex toys — ISO 3533 — manufacturers are also betting on materials that are much more respectful of the planet.
So what better way to respect our environment than to make wooden sex toys?
The idea may seem a bit scary, but in fact, wood is an ideal alternative to plastic when it comes to combining pleasure and sustainability.
And they have been made since 2010 by Thierry, a carpenter from Vosges, France, with wood from the famous forests of his region.
As weird as it may sound to you, this idea is a winner among the fans around the world. No chemical substances, no plastic, and definitely no battery: these sex toys allow users to reach pure bliss without harming the planet, and at a lower cost! Right now, you can find two different companies in France that make these green sex toys from local wood, and the prices are low at both of them.

There is another alternative to wood, since not everyone is comfortable using wooden erotic toys, and that is BIOPLASTIC, which the manufacturers find eco-friendly also.
And bioplastic, while some may not see it as such a green material, appears to be the most popular solution among industry players.
Womanizer is one of the brands in the news in recent months with the launch last year of its very first eco-friendly sex toy, Premium Eco. This pulsating air clitoral stimulator was designed from biodegradable Biolene, a material developed by the brand, composed of corn starch. And the intimate accessory can also be easily recycled since it can be completely dismantled.

Many other brands of adult accessories are now banking on bioplastics, such as Blush Novelties, which offers an eco-friendly version of its Gaia sex toy with Biofeel, a starch-based bioplastic that is both recyclable and biodegradable, or Natural Pleasure, which offers a vibrator made of recycled bio-sourced plastics, except for the motor, housed in a package made of recycled cardboard and paper.
Meanwhile, Ohhcean has worked on a whole range of sex toys made from plastic collected in the oceans. Help reach the ultimate pleasure while cleaning up the planet… Two birds with one stone, in short. In partnership with Tide Ocean (#tide), a company specialized in upcycling, the brand already offers three vibrating intimate accessories that provide pleasure without polluting Mother Nature.
Initiatives that prove that sexual bliss can be perfectly compatible with respect for the environment. A green revolution that probably most of the consumers are waiting for! Read more articles here

Do sexual Fantasies depend on gender?

Fantasies are sometimes (but not always!) a window into what people want to experience in their relationships or outside of them.

First of all, what are sexual fantasies?
A sexual fantasy or erotic fantasy is a mental image or a thought pattern that stirs a person’s sexuality and can create or enhance sexual arousal. The person’s imagination or memory can create a sexual fantasy. It may be triggered autonomously or by external stimulation such as erotic literature or pornography, a physical object, or sexual attraction to another person. Anything that may give rise to sexual arousal may also produce a sexual fantasy, and sexual arousal may, in turn, give rise to fantasies.

Spanish scientists have studied how some psychological variables such as erotophilia (positive attitude towards sexuality), sexual fantasies, and anxiety are related to sexual desire in human beings.
With a few valid and reliable instruments to evaluate sexual desire, the Spanish researchers have been forced to adapt by using the Sexual Desire Inventory by Spector, Carey, and Steinberg, which is a tool that enables the researcher to measure, on the one hand, the solitary sexual motivation and, on the other hand, the interest in having sexual intercourse with another person (didactic sexual desire).
This is a very important fact because “it gives relevant information about possible disagreements in sexual desire that may appear in a couple”.

So, do you think men fantasize about the same things as women?
Well, think twice!
The incidence of sexual fantasies is almost universal but varies by gender, age, sexual orientation, and society. In general, the most common fantasies for men and women are:
Reliving an exciting sexual experience.
Imagining sex with a current partner.
Imagining sex with a different partner.
And in the same time, the next most common fantasies involve oral sex, sex in a romantic location, sexual power or irresistibility, and rape.
Male fantasies tend to focus more on visual imagery and explicit anatomic detail. Men are more interested in visual sexual stimulation and fantasies about casual sex encounters, regardless of sexual orientation.
On the other hand, women’s fantasies tend to focus more on mental sexual stimulation and contain more emotion and connection. Thus, women are more likely to report romantic sexual fantasies high in intimacy and affection, for instance, associating their male partner with heroism and viewing them as chivalric rescuers. Evolutionary theory explains this finding, such that women may be likely to show commitment to their male partner in return for his investment of resources to help raise her offspring, thus increasing the offspring’s chance of survival.

Moving forward to the types of sexual fantasies, some of the frequently emerged patterns include men’s greater tendency to report sexual fantasies falling into the following categories: exploratory, intimate, impersonal, and sadomasochism.
Exploratory fantasies include those of homosexual encounters and group sex, while fantasies of watching others engage in sexual intercourse and fetishism are classed as impersonal sexual fantasies. Women are also likely to report fantasies involving a same-sex partner or those with a famous person. However, both sexes have been found to prefer intimate fantasies over the other three types outlined, including fantasies of oral sex and sex outdoors.
Sex differences have also been found regarding the Paraphilic sexual fantasies, which are those fantasies that are considered atypical, such as incest, sex with animals, and so on.
Even though the sexual fantasies defer by gender, there are still some common ones, more precisely 8:

Being dominated,
Having a threesome,
Having sex with another woman (in women’s cases),
Enjoying a romp in public,
Talking about your sex life with your friends,
Having sex with total strangers,
Having sex with someone you know that’s not your spouse,
Mixing pain with pleasure/BDSM and making love in a romantic place.

Finally, when describing gender and gender roles, it is essential to consider that gender roles are schemas of the self. Sexual fantasies and gender roles are relatively separate concepts that have little influence on one another. Read more articles here

Is Sexual Wellness the next big thing in Self-Care?

Taking ownership of your sexuality doesn’t have to be a self-destructive experience but an empowering one.
We as women are often told to be more feminine, sexier, more agreeable, more of “this” or more of “that,” but never really asked what we wish for? We all agree that we need more of ourselves, more self-love, and more auto-discovery.

There is no shame in the self-love game! It is a gap about which nobody likes to talk. Also, speaking about sexuality is usually filtered down to a hush. However, it’s time to break down the barriers and get real. We need to shake off the stigma surrounding sexual wellness once and for all. Read full article here
