How to Start Camming on a Limited Budget

start camming guide
 
If you’re looking to try out camming but worried that you don’t having the right tools for the job, do not fear! The reality is, it is much easier to become a camgirl than you may think, and doesn’t require much money (or any at all!).

If you’ve already decided that you’d like to cam, and settled on a camsite or two (See my post about best camming sites here), the fact that you don’t have the latest and greatest technology (webcam, laptop, lights), shouldn’t hold you back from taking the leap. It is better to start sooner rather than later and not let perfectionism and hesitation stand in your way.

 
So, Here Are All The Basics You Need To Start Camming Today!

Webcam

Laptops these days have built-in webcams, though the quality is often not the greatest, so I would urge you to spend some money on a webcam before you start. A basic webcam, like this one from Logitech, is only about 20-30 bucks and should be affordable enough. You can also find used ones on Craigslist. After you reach your first payout, webcam should be one of the first things you upgrade, along with lights. A better webcam will equal more views, and more views equal more tips. Though, most of us have started with just a basic webcam.

 

Lights

Lights are often neglected by beginner camgirls, because they don’t realize how important good lighting can be. It elevates the quality of your feed and makes your basic webcam produce better video. Before you buy your first umbrella lights, you can use the lights you already have in your house. Just position a few table lamps or floor lamps in front of you to create a great diffused light. If you do want to buy something before you start, I recommend a ring light, which is pretty affordable!

 

Laptop

Laptop is the least critical of the camming tools, so as long as your internet speeds are okay, you will do fine with whatever laptop you have at the moment. After a few months of camming, you could upgrade your laptop to one with a better processor, more RAM/memory, and better graphics. Here are some great options for when you’re able to buy an improved laptop for camming.

 

Lingerie

When starting out, lingerie requires the least upfront investment, because you can start camming in your regular clothes/pjs/underwear. In fact, lots of members love the girl-next-door, “normal” look and are not expecting you to be coming online in fancy lingerie. I think most of us start out this way… and some girls continue with this look for the rest of their camming career! However, if you want to have some outfits before you start, I recommend Pinkcherry or Yandy for affordable lingerie.

 

Toys 

Like lingerie, you definitely do not need any toys to get started, and some girls will *never* use any toys in their shows. It is totally up to you and what your comfort level is. If you’re interested in getting some toys, my recommendation is Lovense tip-activated toys, because not only are they fun, but they also make you money!

Don’t be intimidated when you see camgirls with perfectly set up camrooms, with the latest and greatest technology or fancy lingerie. Rememeber that they all started the same way and no one is an expert starting out.

BEST REALISTIC DILDO – VixSkin Dildos

VixSkin dildos have long been camgirl favorites, because not only do they look hyper-realistic on cam and in videos, but they also feel like the real thing. They are made with 100% body safe materials: proprietary “VixSkin” construction layers soft, textured silicone over a firm yet flexible silicone core, for a highly functional and unbeatably realistic feel. They warm up and retain heat upon insertion. It truly is the *most* realistic dildo on the market and a great investment for “work”. 😉 They also come in different skin colors for that ultra realistic look.

You can find so many beautiful varieties with shapes, designs, and colors to suit your mood. They can look so feminine and definitely make a statement on cam! Icicles in particular make great-looking glass dildos. Here are a few options that a lot of camgirls go for:

MOST LUXURIOUS TOY – Lelo

LELO tops the list of most luxurious toys on the market. They are made with beauty in mind and, while they are pricey, they are incredible to use and look gorgeous on cam. They’re made with the smoothest silicone and all models are waterpoof, which is a huge bonus. They have so many varieties of toys, from small vibrators to rabbit vibes, to G-spot massagers that it’s sometimes hard to choose, but having a Lelo toy in your toolbox is indispensable.

MOST USEFUL TOY FOR CAMMING – Lovense Tip-Controlled Vibrators

The most “useful” toys for camming are the tip-activated vibrators that not only respond to sound (like Ohmibods), but also to specific tips! The tip amount changes the speed and power of the vibrations and it’s not only fun to use, but is also really fun for viewers, since they get to directly influence it by tipping. Lovense toys are the real deal (don’t listen to critics calling all tip-activated toys fake), and they have become very popular in the camming industry.

Buy Lush and Nora Lovense vibrators on Amazon or through Lovense.

You can check out my post on Tip-Activated Toys to see a comparison between different models (Ohmibod vs Lovense).


MOST INNOVATIVE  TOY – Womanizer

Womanizer has got to be the most innovative toy on the market right now. It’s the first sex toy to feature “PleasureAir” technology. With this technology it is possible to stimulate the clitoris without direct contact for the first time, creating an unprecedented orgasmic experience. It creates a “sucking” sensation that leads to the biggest orgasms and some even call it the best toy since the Hitachi!

⋆ Best Tip-Controlled Vibrators for Camming: OhMiBod vs Lovense

best tip controlled vibrators

There has been a lot of interest in tip and sound-activated toys and using them for cam shows. There has also been talk of them being a scam with girls faking their orgasms and lying about the strength of the vibrations from the tips they get (Particularly on Chaturbate). Hopefully this post will clear this up!

Currently, there are two main companies that manufacture sound-controlled vibrators – OhMiBod (and Lovense. OhMiBod got a lot of hype with their Club Vibe that vibrated with sound, which girls used on cam to have it interact with the tip sound from the speakers. However, Lovense has gone a step above and created their vibrators to respond specifically to tips, which make them the perfect toy for camming. Girls who use OhMiBod toys are not exactly telling the truth when they say that higher tips equal stronger vibrations, but who can blame them? It’s a VERY lucrative setup for making money on cam.

 

OhMiBod Review

OhMiBod was first on the market and a few years ago, and they’ve now come out with a variety of interactive toys. In partnership with Kiiroo (#1 maker of male interactive sex toys) they’ve created two toys that will connect to other Kiiroo devices are are app-activated!

 

OhMiBod Esca 2

  • Touch-sensitive technology that reacts to your body’s natural movements.
  • The built-in sensor technology allows for bi-directional control of connected devices. Either of you will be able to drive the action.
  • This interactive G-spot vibrator is fully compatible with one of the worlds’ most renowned sex toys for men: The Fleshlight Launch.It also syncs it to other interactive vibrators like the KIIROO Pearl2.

Buy Fuse

 


Lovense Review

 

Lovense took app-activated vibrator game to the next level by introducing a Chrome extension (in addition the Lovense smartphone app) that gives you full control of how your toy will respond to tips. Eg. If someone tips you 10 to 20 tokens, it will vibrate on a low setting. If someone tips 20-50, it will go higher, for 50+ tokens it will rotate, etc. It’s highly interactive and innovative! It’s also very easy to install and work with and really fun for the viewers. This extension is compatible with Chaturbate, Myfreecams, BongaCams, CamSoda and Flirt4Free.

There are currently 2 vibrators in the lineup and 1 buttplug:

Nora

Hitachi Magic Wand – Camgirl’s Best Friend?

camming hitachi magic wand

 

If you have money to spend on only ONE vibrator, ever – make it the Hitachi Magic Wand. It’s been called the “Cadillac of vibrators” due to its strength, performance, and orgasm-power. It has a cord and a powerful motor (which makes it pretty loud – its only downside), but it puts all other cordless and battery-operated vibrators to shame. It’s become an icon in the sex toy world and its plain white look is so easily recognizable. I’m sure you’ve seen tons of girls use them for cam shows… with great results. 😉

A little while ago, it went through a rebranding and is now called the “Original Magic Wand” with the Hitachi name now absent from the newer packaging; it’s also now sold by Vibratex. So, with many fakes on the market, look for Vibratex listed as the manufacturer. For example, this particular magic wand is the real deal:

 

hitachi magic wand cammingbuy hitachi magic wand camming

 

Despite the name change, many girls still call it “The Hitachi” for short, no matter how much Hitachi wanted to separate itself from the product. I personally don’t care what they call it, as long as they keep making it! It is a truly irreplaceable camgirl (and everyday-girl) toy.

The Magic Wand has 2 speeds – “normal” and “OMG orgasm”, but if you want to be able to control it, you can by getting the speed controller version, which is really handy if you’re more sensitive or want to be able to vary the speed. Here is one sold on Amazon:

The original magic wand doesn’t come with any attachments, but if you’re someone who likes to experiment and likes insertable vibrators, there are attachments you can buy that fit right on top and take the “Hitachi Experience” to the next level! Warning: This is not for beginners! The vibrations are strong enough as it is without any insertable parts, and many girls can’t even handle having their bare skin touched with the wand, so it greatly depends on your sensitivity and experience level.

This is the most popular kit for the Hitachi – with the blue straight and curved G-spot attachments:

If you’re looking to buy that special toy for yourself, or if you’re reading this and deciding what to get your favorite camgirl, you definitely can’t go wrong with the Magic Wand!
