Become a BBW Adult Entertainer on Webcam or in Clips!

A lot of people wonder if there are qualifications to becoming an adult entertainer (cam model, pornstar, clip producer, etc) and when wondering this they ask themselves “Can I do this if I’m fat?” or “Will I still make money if I’m heavy?”

There has never been a better time to enter the adult industry if you are a bigger woman. The BBW (Big Beautiful Women) niche is currently a top ranking category across every cam site, clip site, tube site, phone sex site, etc. The most wonderful part about the BBW niche is that it doesn’t really have a “standard.” With other niches, like “Alternative” for example, you need to have tattoos or colorful hair or meet some more specific criteria to “qualify” for that category. To fit in to the BBW niche, you just have to have a larger body type. There’s no need for big tits or a certain hair color or a certain style, so you will be able to enter this niche as long as your body type fits the “standard” while maintaining your own individuality and creativity, without needing to change your look. Moral of the story: there are plenty of porn jobs for plus-sized models!

How do I know if I qualify as a BBW model?

Since the adult community doesn’t really have any “policing” to it, you can self proclaim yourself any category that you feel fits you. If you are comfortable labeling yourself as something, then most of the time that means you qualify for it. If a site feels your tag is not appropriate or that you are abusing the tagging system they will contact you and ask you to remove it, although this very rarely happens.

Do I have to participate in belly fetishes or any specific kinks as a BBW model?

A big concern for BBW models is feeling like they have to participate in fetishes just because they are a part of the niche, when in reality as a cam model or clip producer you will never have to cater to fetishes that you feel uncomfortable doing. BBW models do not have to do weight focused fetishes, unless they feel comfortable doing so. This applies with every fetish or kink, if you are not comfortable doing something then you never have to do it!

Does marketing myself as BBW help me reach a larger audience?

Due to the popularity of the BBW category, if you feel you are eligible to market yourself with the tag then it is highly suggested that you do. There are even groups on social media that will only promote BBW models and this is something I would encourage every model who is eligible to take advantage of. Tagging your content or your profiles as BBW in addition to the other services that you offer will widen the range of people you connect with due to the fact that there are customers who will buy pretty much anything that is produced by a BBW model. It will reach the customers who are only interested in BBW while utilizing other tags along with it will allow you to reach the customer base for the topic or niche that you are creating content for. You can also gain more traffic by utilizing your Social Media Marketing skills.

Are there any sites that BBW models tend to make more money on?

Popular clip and camming site ManyVids seems to be the hot spot for BBW models and their customers. On a frequent basis you can expect to see the search term “BBW” in the trending searches. This site also has many top earning models in the BBW niche that help to notify the site of ways that they can further support the BBW community and help it to grow on their platform. ManyVids is my top recommendation, although many other sites also offer great traffic for BBW models.
