Lighting tips for Cam Models – How to look best on camera

“ If there is not enough light or well-placed, the webcam will try to compensate for the software (to add light, contrast, etc.) which can lead to a decrease in the number of frames per second it can transmit.”

In addition to having a great webcam, you need to remember that lighting is a really important factor in looking your best on cam!. Great lighting is fundamental for any cam model. You want that dewy look that makes your skin shine, looking delicious as ever? Then you need fantastic lighting. What’s more, you also need to set it up properly and make it work to your advantage.

Why is lighting important?
Light is not only important in terms of final quality on video chat sites, it has a well-defined role in reducing the load on the webcam. If there is not enough light or well-placed, the webcam will try to compensate for the software (to add light, contrast, etc.) which can lead to a decrease in the number of frames per second it can transmit. A low number of fps (frames per second) can affect your activity, the quality of video streaming, the position in the pages of the sites you work on and so on. You want lighting that will make you pop. Furthermore, you need something that will trap the attention of your audience and have them yearning for more. To achieve that, everything has to be visible. Every curve, dip, and peak of your body has to be detectable. If you’re worried that too much lighting will make your flaws stand out, don’t be. Proper lighting will always work in your favor.
There are both budget options, which do not cost much and options that are closer to the professional environment and which include umbrella lights, softboxes, etc.

Three-point lighting setup
Three-point lighting will illuminate you and your cam room in just the right way. This is a traditional setup. Most models use it, for one simple reason: it works! It eliminates all shadows, and it’s both effective and subtle. Having only one light source will cause a lot of shadows, especially if you choose only to have backlighting. That will leave your body looking like a simple silhouette, and you won’t be able to show off your assets. On the other hand, having just one harsh front lighting source is also the wrong way to go about lighting. You need multiple light sources.

Main light
Some models use their overhead light as the primary light source. This is the key light, and it’s supposed to be the strongest. It should illuminate the entire cam girl’s room. Although an overhead light can work, a traditional three-point setup usually has the primary light behind the camera, diagonally from the model. The intensity of the main light should be the strongest out of all three light sources. You can use LED bulbs or go for the 300-watt equivalent fluorescent studio-quality bulbs. The main light is vital because, as it shines down on you, it will create a lighting base. However, it can’t work magic all on its own.

Support light
Fill light should also be placed behind the camera and slightly elevated. Both the main and the support light should shine on you at a 45-degree angle. Support light is usually the one with the accompanying equipment. You can mount umbrellas, reflectors, or a softbox to it. Why is support light so important? The main light is quite powerful, and it comes from a single source. That means that it will cast shadows. The support light will soften those shadows or remove them altogether. Fill light needs to be dimmer and softer than the main light. So, don’t go overboard with the super-strong light bulbs.

Backlight
The final piece of the three-point lighting setup is the backlight. It helps cam models look more defined and sharp, and it also enhances exposure. The backlight can be a standard lamp you already have at home, as it isn’t supposed to be bright and harsh anyway.

AI Sex Robots – the new sexual competition

Now that we have intelligent TVs, refrigerators, lighting bulbs, cars etc., it was only a matter of time before our most primal and intimate lives became smarter through artificial intelligence. Life-sized sex dolls combined with animatronics and artificial intelligence are starting to hit the market.

Although they’re still largely in the development stage, these prototypes offer a hint of what fully functional sex robots may look like in near future. Today you can already take home a robotic love doll or download an AI sex doll personality for romantic and sexual conversations.

With testing underway, this is also a time when public discussion may very well influence the design and appearance of artificial lovers and the ways in which people may interact with them.
While you can see sextech is much more than sex robots, the reality is that much progress has been made to create sex robots that are very realistic and that you can customize. There are companies that are almost ready to unveil robots that seem to have a heartbeat and can mimic breathing. Ultimately, they are working on having sex dolls interact and communicate with partners as if they were human. RealDoll, makers of Harmony and other versions for men and women, offer technologically advanced AI-driven robots that can blink, move, and more. While these bots are available with a hefty price tag, according to Matt McMullen, founder of RealDoll, they expect to have no shortage of customers.

This year, besides the existing sex robots on the market, Reall Doll company created the first “elderly male” sex robot. The grey haired robot has been made at the request of a customer and was posted on the company’s Instagram account. According to Sex Tech Guide, the wrinkly model was built specifically for a client. RealDoll captioned its Instagram post: “Okay we get daddy issues, but this might be a whole new level…”.The company’s flagship sex doll is the artificially intelligent Harmony doll. It’s also working on a male sex robot called Henry.

Sex bots will become hyper-realistic with features such as built-in heaters to create the feeling of body warmth. They will also have sensors to react to your touch. One company is even developing a head that can speak, smile and sing for its robot sex dolls. Sex doll Harmony claims to be the first to offer an “emotional connection”. Experts say these specialised robots will start to appear in ordinary homes in the next decade.
While news headlines and science fiction treat them with fascination, robotic lovers are still viewed as taboo to some degree. The development of sex robots has even been protested. Those who have publicly displayed their creations have also dealt with ridicule. So it’s likely other projects are underway and won’t be revealed until they surpass a certain level of quality and realism. Read more articles here

The Cock Cam – Going places a camera has never gone

Ran out of gift ideas or you want to start your Christmas list early? Well, here is something that might interest you!
Ladies and gents, we would like to introduce you to the Cock Cam! That’s right, there’s now a gadget that fits around a man’s penis and records all the action. It’s a cock ring with a camera!

UK sex toy-maker Julz, calls the Cock Cam “a revolutionary sex toy that allows you to record all of your erotic moments at never seen before angles, store and view videos on your mobile device through the Secure Mobile App, taking your sexy home videos to the next level.” You heard them: it’s time to take your sexy home videos to the next level, ladies and gentlemen.

Videos can be recorded in infrared night vision or HD modes in 90-minute stints. The $160 wi-fi connected device runs on a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 90 minutes running at up to 1080P video and at 15 frames per second, can then be stored and viewed through your smartphone.

“All footage is stored directly to your mobile device,” Julz says. “Your footage is never stored on the app… the app is used to operate the camera and view the footage only. Check your mobile device’s security policies, data is not stored on the app or on any cloud storage.”

According to the creators, the device works much like a traditional penis ring, helping to boost performance and endurance in the bedroom. But, it has added features for a new level of intimacy. “It is great for long distance relationships, getting creative and sending footage to your partner across the globe.”

The camera can be removed from its silicon housing for… cleaning purposes, and if you ever find yourself single with no one to mingle with, you can use it as a security camera.
Would you ever buy one? Like as a gag gift in your friend’s Dirty Santa gift exchange? Read more articles here

myonly.chat – Transform your Telegram channel into your ATM!

“ I guess we all owe it to ourselves to have a purpose in life and to use what we have to leave a legacy, create something.”

Are you a content creator or business in the adult industry trying to bring more traffic to your platform and promote it safely? Then look no further! Myonly.chat is a premium Telegram service that helps content creators or businesses sell access to their Telegram channels. It’s a subscription and tip-based, adult-friendly and safe to promote on any social media. Overall, a service that empowers content creators.
We had the pleasure to meet Andra Chirnogeanu, myonly.chat CEO, who gave us more details and insights of their recently launched app.

How did you come up with the idea to create myonly.chat?
I’ve worked in the adult industry for the last 6 years and all these years I´ve encouraged performers to take control of their content and their social media. When myonly.chat started, the idea behind it was ¨let´s do something that doesn’t put us in competition with anyone but can help everyone make more money¨. We´re not a platform, we´re providing a service, a way to make MORE money from your content, to bring more traffic to your platform, to promote it safely. I want everyone to win and it saddens me to see that in an industry so small, people are so divided.

What is the difference between myonly.chat and other similar services?
As mentioned before, myonly.chat doesn´t store content. The content is diverse, from text messages to audio, photo and video. 100% payout, the 24/7 support from our account managers, and the fact that this is not ANOTHER platform, but a service where you can monetize the content you already have. There’s also the fact that Telegram is an app that’s safe to promote on social media, it’s available for both Mac and PC, and most devices running Mac or Android.
An added benefit is push notifications, which, unlike browser notifications where fans have to opt-in, Telegram has native push right to your fan’s mobile device or laptop. And if creators needed more reasons to use the myonly.chat service, there’s also the fact that they can stream exclusive shows to their fans.

What are the goals of My Only Chat?
We´re looking at perfecting the service, making it easy to use for everyone that wants to join. The goal has always been to make people monetize what they’re good at. There is no one like you out there, and that’s something to celebrate and get money from. Nothing in this world is for free, why would your content be?

Where do you see myonly.chat in 2 years?
Hopefully fully adopted on every site that provides services, offer them our API and white label to use as a new revenue stream for their users and models.

Do you think that being a female CEO brings along more benefits, or more disadvantages?
I´ve never been a male CEO, so I wouldn´t know the difference. Timothy Leary said ¨Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.¨ In all seriousness, I believe any executive position comes with challenges and it´s a matter of personality, rather than sex how one deals with those challenges.
I don’t compare myself to anyone, as no one is me, or goes through what I went through, or had my background, struggles, privileges etc. I guess we all owe it to ourselves to have a purpose in life and to use what we have to leave a legacy, create something.
I´ll be foolish not to use all that I have, as a man would use physical power in certain situations, let’s say, I’d use my wits or smile. That just proves you know how to work and take advantage of your differences rather than seeing them as a disadvantage.

How many content creators do you currently have signed in?
At the moment we’re doing this interview, at the end of August, the number of creators using our service is 103.

Was it difficult to redirect people’s attention to a new platform?
For sure it takes time, and myonly.chat has just started a few months ago. People were very curious and wanted to try it, to see how it works. We´re changing, adapting, improving every week, seeing what works and what doesn´t, while keeping our principles about what the creators should get from it. We don’t want to redirect them as in choosing a unique platform to be on; we encourage creators to sell their content and have their ¨eggs¨ in as many baskets as possible.

How hard is it to start your business in these uncertain times?
Starting a business is easy, everyone can do it. Keeping a business going and making it successful (this is different for everyone) is the tricky part. You have to be patient, passionate, and not too proud to ask for help. We make mistakes when we think we know
everything.

Tell us a few words about MyOnly.Chat’s CEO.
I get up every morning and I take a few moments to pray. I´m not a religious person by any means. Praying is my time of giving thanks to being awake and healthy, able to do what I love, have people that I love in my life, and being overall happy. This is not something that people know about me and I believe it’s the first time I’m talking about it in an interview.
My career in the adult industry started 6 years ago because I was stubborn to get into something I knew nothing about and learn about it. The reason why I accepted the MOC offer was that it was a challenge to learn more about something I didn’t know. This is myonly.chat´s CEO in a few words: grateful, curious and ambitious.
