Sell Homemade Porn

Subscription Sites

If you’re already making videos, taking sexy photos, and streaming then it might be time to get started with a subscription fanclub or membership where your regular fans can see your content for a monthly price!

Getting started in the independent adult industry

What do you need to get started?

  1. A government issued photo ID. This can be a drivers license, passport, or state ID.
  2. High speed internet connection for streaming or uploading content. 
  3. Equipment for streaming or recording content. 
  4. A private area to film, stream, and work.
  5. Legal information for tax reporting purposes.

Is anyone eligible to work as a webcam model, content creator, or phone sex operator? 

Absolutely! The independent adult industry is very inclusive there are opportunities for everyone within the adult industry regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical appearance, illnesses, etc. 

How much money do adult performers earn?

When you first get started in the adult industry, you can expect to dedicate time to building your brand before you see great monetary results. Unless you already have a pre-established presence online, you will need to dedicate regular hours and consistent schedules to building up your fanbase before you are making the big bucks. Performers that are online consistently and work from home full-time can anticipate anywhere from $1,000 – $10,000 a month, with top earners that spend years building their fanbase making even more!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make money if I’m a man or if I’m trans?

There is a place for everyone in the adult industry and male and trans performers have the advantage of still being an undersaturated market – meaning there is less “model competition” so it is easier to climb the ranks on websites within the male and trans categories!

Do I need a specific body type to make money camming?

You do not need to look any specific way to make money in the amateur porn industry! Some of the top categories across cam and clip selling sites are things like BBW, Alternative, All Natural, and more! Customers in the porn industry have specific niches that they love and just because it’s not “conventionally attractive” does not mean it won’t be profitable in porn!

What are my first steps to getting started camming?

If you’re looking to get started camming you’ll first have to find the site that works for you. If you are a brand new model, you’ll probably want to pick a website that offers a good amount of traffic as well as an easy model management experience! If you’ve been in the industry a while and you’re looking to expand to new sites, you’ll probably want a camming website with a good referral program as well as customization and personalization options to really capture your brand.

How do I pick a website that will work for me?

There are 3 “basic types” of camming! Token sites, private sites, and indie camming. Token sites are similar to crowdfunding and allow the performer to put on a public show in “free chat” (sometimes referred to as freemium) where customers tip in towards a goal or game which the model will perform once the goal has been met. Private sites focus more on one-on-one style shows where you’re entertaining one customer or a smaller group of customers that are generally paying for your time on a per-minute basis. Indie camming refers to offering video chats off of a platform, like Skype shows, Snapchat video calls, Discord, Facetime or other forms of video chatting. There are websites set up as a directory that display performers offering indie shows where you can get listed and take payments!

Can I sell access to my Snapchat to make money?

You can sell access to a Snapchat account but it is against the Snapchat terms of service so you risk having your account closed down for breaking their rules. We highly recommend looking into a fanclub service instead, where you can post your nudes without censorship and the website will also handle payment processing for you so you won’t be at risk of chargebacks like you would be with payment services like CashApp or PayPal. 

Can I stream from my phone?

Some websites do allow you to stream from your phone but the quality is not the best. We highly recommend if you want to start live webcam streaming that you invest in a webcam. There are many good webcams for getting started; we recommend the Logitech C920 or C922 for beginners or the Logitech Brio for those looking to stream in 4k. 

How can I sell my panties, socks, or tangibles?

If you’d like to sell tangible items like panties, bras, socks, shoes, etc. then you’ll need to find a place to sell these items with an adult friendly storefront option. You’ll also need to decide if you want a site that has it’s own built in traffic or if you’ll direct people there for a higher percentage. There are many tangible selling sites, we recommend checking out DirtyMerch.

Do I have to show my face?

Some websites require that you show your face but others will allow you to wear a mask or not show your face, it’s all about which website in particular you decide to select! Make sure to read the terms of service on every website you consider signing up for. 

Can I stream with my boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/etc?

Yes, many website allow couples or group streams. The only requirement is typically that the guest performer is approved to stream or be featured in content on your account by doing ID verification. Some websites even allow you to connect your accounts that are already active to make collaboration easier! 

What happens if someone records my shows?

If someone records your shows without your permission and posts them online for free or for profit, we highly recommend getting DMCA service coverage. These companies will help get your stolen content removed from the internet. We highly recommend checking out BranditScan for your DMCA needs, they can even get catfish accounts taken down!
