A long time ago, in a faraway land, people had to go buy x-rated magazines, and/or movies to satiate their pornography needs. They also had to go to seedy, hole-in-the-wall, places to watch the real thing.

How to Get Started With Live Couple Webcam Shows
If you both have a private place with a webcam and internet service you are pretty much all set.
Some say that the typical laptop cam doesn’t have the best quality, and as you want to give your audience the very best experience (a satisfied customer, is a return customer) you might want to consider an upgrade.
Purchasing a better webcam may help bring in larger profits, so go out and spoil yourselves. You can read our article on recommended equipment to start webcamming.
Everybody wants to look their best, but it is even more important to do so when in this industry, so haircuts, waxing, and whatever else that needs to be done, should be done, prior to broadcasting and dont be afraid to try new looks from how you would normally look, experiment.
Outfits and costumes are a plus, and so are toys. Having a stash of both beforehand will eliminate the need to refuse requests which will also lead to the loss of revenue, and a customer.
This whole process requires teamwork, so you both should be comfortable with every aspect. This conversation should be had before you put yourselves out there. This is a business, treat it that way.
All items purchased for your cam shows can be used off cam as well to make extra money by selling custom made content and nudes to customers.
What are the best sites to work for?
Obviously, the main reason you want to start broadcasting live is because you want to make money, and a lot of it, but don’t just sign up for the first cam site you see. Check them out.
You want to work for a reputable company, after all, we’re not exactly selling cookies here.
Every site will have its own application process, rules, and regulations. Be sure to read all of the fine print, and feel free to ask questions, if you get no response then you know to move on to the next one.
According to the successful cam partners, these are the top 3 websites for couples camming.
- Chaturbate: This is the most highly recommended. They pay well and have a loyal following.
- BongaModels: Offer Monday through Friday payouts although you have to have at least $50 in your account.
- Livejasmin: Livejasmin does payouts every two weeks, however, they do offer up to 80% share so that somewhat makes it worth the wait.
Safety and Protection
No, we don’t mean condoms. You and your partners’ safety should be the number one priority as not all fans can be desirable ones.
There are some strange people out there, and while most of your audience will be normal, there are instances where an unhealthy obsession turned dangerous.
Take precautions. Be sure not to give away personally identifying information, and turn off the location feature for your pictures and social media sites.
Some sites offer regional blocking, including city and/or state blocking, if in the U.S., look into it.
The Legal Side Of Becoming Cam Models
As we stated before, this is a team effort. Before creating and publishing anything, the two of you need to come to an agreement on several terms.
What happens if you break up? Who will have the rights to published content? Will one of you want it removed from the internet? If both parties agree to leave published content on the sites, what will be the profit split?
These legal issues are incredibly important. They should be agreed upon before getting started, and consider putting it in writing.
Extra Helpful Cam Tips
Decide who you’re going to be on camera. Create a persona and pick a ‘stage name’, it’s important to stick with this but do not be afraid of taking time to figure out which persona and performer suits you the best, as a couple.
Choose a camming partner that you are comfortable with. If you are not comfortable with each other, it will look and feel awkward on camera for both you, and to your audience.
Be considerate / No judgment: If you are in this business you have already agreed to respect peoples innermost fantasies. You may think it odd or strange but smile and go with it. That is what you are getting paid for after all.
If you are uncomfortable with something, speak up. You should not feel forced to do anything. Everybody wants everybody to be comfortable and have a good time.
Be Prepared: Try as you might, someone, somewhere, will likely find out what you do. It is difficult (if not impossible) to keep a secret on the internet. Be prepared to answer questions and to listen to possible lectures.
Remember, a happy audience equals more money for you guys.
We are thankfully past the days when something like this was considered taboo. There is no shame in anybody’s game.
This is a team effort so always be considerate of your partner as well. Find out what works for you. This is not just an industry for bombshell, model, types.
There are niches that literally anyone can fit into. Above all else, have fun with it. This can be a unique (and profitable) bonding experience for you and your partner.
