A webcam model colloquial gender-neutral: cammodel ; female: camgirl ; male: camboy is a video performer who is streamed on the Internet with a live webcam broadcast. Unlike other sexwork such as street prostitution , webcam models may operate from the safety of their home. They hence have no need for pimps which can be seen by prostitutes as "protectors". Since many webcam models operate from their homes, they are free to choose the amount of sexual content for their broadcasts.
Webcam porn is originally created live and for an audience and provides a unique sexual experience to those involved. Scenes are recorded and uploaded to be enjoyed after the show has ended so non-subscribers can watch. Most cam shows feature solo stripteases and masturbation as the ladies pleasure their bodies for the benefit of the audience. Couples are rare but from time to time they fuck on webcam.
