How to Become a Fetish Cam Model - Everything You Need to Know

Last Updated September 18, 2022

These days, working from home has become the norm in many industries. People all over the world have discovered the joy of running their own schedule, and deciding how their day, and work day will look like. Things are no different in the live cam world, which has multiplied its performer numbers in recent years with all genders, sexual orientations, and fetishes. Becoming a live cam model is not hard, but how do you know which is the best fetish webcam site for you to perform on? Read on to find out.

CamSoda.com

CamSoda is the best freemium platform around, providing the main gallery page that displays all the live streams that very moment. On top of this, the site loves to give away free content, even to those not even registered. There's an Exclusive Vids section with full length movies CamSoda produces, as well as Reallifecam and Nude in Public to be found on the bottom of the main page, which gives you even more free spy-style cams. Users and models alike enjoy using the mobile feature which allows for cam2cam too, at no extra cost. And of course, the countless fetish tags allow for users to find their niche, and for the models to tag themselves only in the fetishes they want to perform, for example: #squirt, #anal, #toy, #pvt, #massage, and so many more.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex).

Site Focus: Freemium.

Earning potential: Earnings are between $0.05 to $0.055 per token a user spends, which about half, and 50% is an impressive number to make in live cams. However, the site boasts that models can make up to 85% due to other costs (Free tokens, chargebacks, etc). Prices of a fetish show per minute range between 6 tokens a minute (the lowest amount), to 120 tokens a minute, which is rare. Each model decides how much to charge in that range, but usually a beginner starts on the lower end of the price spectrum.

Payments: Weekly, via a payment method that will enter when you register, either direct deposit to your bank account, by check, or Paxum. If you go over the $500 minimum that week, you can also receive your payment with a wire transfer.

Privacy: You can control areas of the world you'd like not to show up. Also, you can decide you want to be DMCA protected, which means that no one is allowed to use your image or video without your consent.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

LiveJasmin.com

LiveJasmin is the premium equivalent to CamSoda on the preemium end of live cams, just as popular and successful, but geared to different users. As there is no nudity or sex allowed in the open rooms, the models appear in their choice of clothes but are not allowed to show any naughty parts. When you first enter the site, it's astounding how beautiful all the profile pictures are, as most are taken by professionals, just like the models themselves. You can apply as a new model of course, but you are subject to vetting on a higher level than a freemium site, and sometimes your shows may be monitored for quality control. The site offers 24/7 support to both models and users, as well as a state of the art mobile platform with c2c. As the model, you can choose which Willingness tags you want to be known for, which is an indicator to the fetishes you want to show, such as Dominant, Striptease, ASMR, JOI, SPH, and others. You can also select the specific Fetish section, to be counted among the fetish models.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex).

Site Focus: Premium (Sex/nudity only in private).

Earning potential: A credit on LiveJasmin is worth roughly the same as $1, which makes things easier to calculate. You'll receive up to 60% of what members pay, and you can earn an additional twenty percent if the member got to the site because you brought them in (These require special codes given to you by the site). When you start performing, there will be a New sticker on your profile picture, and you'll be able to charge the minimum, which is just under $1 per minute. The more you earn, the higher you can bump the rate. Starting off, it'll be a 30% earnings amount, which will raise up to 60% if you work full-time, consistently. Keep in mind the site has plenty of contests and awards to be won, no matter your seniority on the site.

Payments: Bi-weekly, using one of the following: Paxum, ePayService, WebMoney, Bank Transfer, or Directa24/postal check if you reach the minimum amount needed.

Privacy: The site will automatically block users from your own country. In addition, you can select further privacy settings from your account.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

Flirt4Free.com

If fetish is your bag, then Flirt4Free should be the perfect fit. It offers its very own mini-site known as the Fetish Community, with over 50 fetishes that range from vanilla, to super extreme. For those who know the site, they're coming not just for the premium features like mobile with c2c, 24/7 support for users and models, HD cams and amazing advanced filters, but the fact that both members and models get their own fetish Forums, a fetish Blog and even a fetish Education Center. So, as a fetish model you can really build up your visibility on the site with all these devices, not to mention the countless contests the site holds for all models (There's even a dedicated Top 20 fetish models section). The site also gives every new model an hour-long Feature Show, free to VIP members, so you can flaunt your stuff and show them what you've got.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex).

Site Focus: Premium.

Earning potential: Chats on Flirt4Free range pretty drastically in price, starting at just 5 credits per minute to 150 credits per minute (Rare). For users, the cheapest chats are group ones, specifically the Party Shows and Groups Shows. The Group shows require only tipping to reach a goal you may not reach, but it's great exposure as it's the main place you can show as much skin as you'd like. The site prefers not to publicly announce the percentages you can earn, stating the amounts you could earn "potentially", depending on how many hours a week you work. For example, if you work only part time, 20 hours, you can make around $2,000. Double the amount for full time. This amount makes sense, considering you have so many options to earn more, with the contests, awards, videos you can make and sell, and group shows you can start.

Payments: Bi-weekly, either with a wire transfer or a postal check.

Privacy: Flirt4Free gives you all of the control, along with blocking your own country and others. You can also decide to kick someone out of your room if you so choose.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

ImLive.com

ImLive is one of the original live cam sites, and it shows. Not only does it boast countless awards, recognition, millions of users from around the world, it also attracts lots of stars from the porn world to perform on it. The site offers a state of the art mobile platform with cam2cam, for hosts and users, as well as 24/7 support for both as well. It provides excellent filters and an easy system to find exactly what you're looking, including a special Fetish breakdown of categories. The site provides plenty of features beyond live cams too, with such gems as the Multi-Viewer allowing you to view 6 shows at ones, or Fulfill your Fantasy in which users post detailed desires on the host's board so you can decide if you want to make that member's dreams come true, and negotiate the price too.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex).

Site Focus: Premium.

Earning potential: As an ImLive host, you can receive between 30% to 100% of what members pay. For every ImLive credit you earn, you are paid $1 USD and prices per minute range from $0.98 to $14.90, depending on your category, what you decide to charge, your seniority, and the rating you are given by your fans. You also earn commission for referring guests who become paying members. You also get paid for their Discount Club joining, the price of which you get to decide. In addition, specifically for fetish performers, you will get paid for viewings of your professional videos or expert tutorials. ImLive also offers continuous benefits and competitions where you can win cash prizes, gifts, and special shows to get more visibility and promotion on the site.

Payments: Bi-weekly, either with a mail order check, Paxum, bank wire transfer, direct deposit, ePayService, CosmoPayment, PumaPay, Emoneyflow, or Wire Colombia.

Privacy: In addition to 24/7 live host support, you have complete control on what you choose to disclose in your account, as well as which countries you block. You can also decide to permanently block certain members at your discretion. It's also important to note that uniquely to ImLive, there are forums specifically for the hosts, so you can defer to your counterparts and get advice in addition to the ImLive team.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

Stripchat.com

Stripchat is the king of kink, and offers hundreds of fetish categories, this is a great place for a beginner host to get her start. All performers are amateurs, between 3000-5000 online on most hours. Among the categories you can find the HD one offering rooms up to 1080p HD, Recordable Privates with models allowing free show recordings, as well as the crowning jewel of the site, VR Cams. Stripchat is one of the only sites in live cams that offers virtual reality. That's great for users, but also for the models, as these rooms are usually the most expensive, with only 20-30 performers online — and thus in high demand. Lastly, there's a general Fetish category in case a fetish model wants to keep her options open.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex), and groups are welcome too.

Site Focus: Freemium.

Earning potential: There are so many ways for a performer to make money on Stripchat. Private chats range between 8-200 tokens a minute (Average of $2.40 a minute for users), while group shows, not including tips that a model earns, can get her up to 60 tokens a minute. From these amounts the model will receive $0.05 per token spent on tipping or shows. Taking into account the fact that Stripchat pays for all transaction and VAT costs and doesn't charge its models in cases of chargebacks and refunds, the percentage paid to you varies between 50-60 percent. Beyond these basics, expect to make more with offline tips, a tipping menu in your open chats, members joining your fan club, or users purchasing videos/pics you make/take. Then there are also referral programs, contests, and setting up block sessions with a fixed price for members you know can handle it.

Payments: Weekly, with Eby Paxum, COSMOpayment, ePayService, ACH/Direct Transfers, Checks, or Bitcoin/Cryptocurrencies.

Privacy: You have complete control and can ban specific users from your room, as well as specific world countries directly from your account dashboard.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

MyDirtyHobby.com

MyDirtyHobby is very different from the other sites on this list, for a few reasons. The first is that there are no open rooms, at all. You can't even enter a model's room without paying for the pleasure. This is great for a model to ensure she gets paid, but it also makes the site much smaller than most, with only around 150 performers online, and that makes the competition steep. This also means that you need to work extra hard to get seen, and so perhaps this site is best suited for models that have a name in the live cam biz and are bringing in new users rather then creating new business. Another difference is that the site isn't just about live cams, but also about videos (Over 400,000), pictures (Over 3 million), and even virtual reality events. That being said, it is the dirtiest site from the sites presented here, with every fetish under the sun showcased, and encouraged.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex).

Site Focus: Premium.

Earning potential: You earn 50% from all the DC (Dirty Cents) you bring in, and you also receive 25% from every video and picture you sell. This site is also unique in that you can actually create your own Channel on the site. This looks like a mini-site within MyDirtyHobby, which allows you to post anything you like, and connect to other platforms. This is a great option to bring in more members. Price of chat for users ranges from €0.60 to €1.25 on average, and this includes cam2cam.

Payments: Monthly, with a minimum of €50, via Wire transfer, check, Paxum, or FirstChoicePay.

Privacy: Much less than other sites. There is no option to block users, or block particular countries. However, the site does automatically block the country you stream from, so if you're from the US, no one using a US IP address can see your model account.

Taxes: MyDirtyHobby is authorized to issue invoices in your name for VAT purposes. Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

Chaturbate.com

Chaturbate is a freemium leader and known for having a wide variety not only of female models, but male, trans, couple and plenty of groups, too. It's also beloved for providing fantastic HD quality, the only on this list with 4K HD. The site works on tags, and they are endless. Though not alphabetized, you can easily use the search button. Models can tag themselves in an existing tag or create their own for particular fetishes. The site's performers are also huge fans of outfits, cosplay, roleplay, and games, so if becoming a new character every day is your scene, this will definitely be a great fit for you and the audience you are looking to get. And don't forget to connect your account to your social media sites, which will widen your visibility.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: 1 or 2 (For couple performers, any sex), and groups are welcome too.

Site Focus: Freemium.

Earning potential: Every 20 tokens you earn is the equivalent of $1.00. Private chats can get you between 6 to 200 tokens per minute based on the price you select to charge. There are quite a few ways you can earn other than private chats, such as a tipping menu, spy shows, monthly subscriptions to your fan club, content such as clips and pics, users tipping for your toy buzzing, and you can even sell access to your social media platforms.

Payments: Bi-weekly, using Paxum, CosmoPayment, ePayService, Skrill, Bitcoin, Check by mail, Wire Transfer, or Direct Deposit (USA only). There's a minimum of $50 to get any payment. There's also an option to receive daily payouts, but take a look at the site's excellent host FAQ section to learn more.

Privacy: Check out the Settings & Privacy tab below the broadcast window to configure your room and privacy settings. Customize restrictions and features, such as blocking your region from entering your room, setting a password, modifying your private show settings, or enabling your fan club.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

FetishGalaxy.com

FetishGalaxy is a unicorn on fetish, with a relatively small selection of 80-100 performers, all uniquely fetish inclined. Each model as she signs up decides whether she is an Expert, an Educator, a Dominant or a Submissive. This is a great help for members coming into the site knowing what they're looking for. This is also great for the models as their niche is clear. There are open free rooms, but nudity is frowned upon, and is rare. To get to the action, the user will usually need to go into a private chat with a fetish performer. With over 30 fetish categories and super low premium costs, it's one of the best fetish sites. However, there's one flaw, the performer's HD cams. If you really want to stand out in the FG crowd, get a great camera and connection, as many models still use only SD cams.

Accepted Genders: All.

Number of performers: Solo.

Site Focus: Premium.

Earning potential: FetishGalaxy is simple in the sense that 1 credit on the site is equal to $1.00. Prices of private shows vary from a very low minimum of $1.00 per minute. with an average of $2.50 per minute. But depending on your level of expertise and what you offer, you can charge up to a max of $14.90 a minute. But this amount is rare on the site, as there is such a small amount of performers. Members can tip you, join your club, purchase videos and/or pictures. You get between 30% up to a full 100%, which changes according to your standing on the site (Ratings, popularity, members who have purchased club subscriptions).

Payments: Bi-weekly, either with a mail order check, Paxum, bank wire transfer, direct deposit, ePayService, CosmoPayment, PumaPay, Emoneyflow, or Wire Colombia.

Privacy: As each model decides in which one of the four categories she is in, there's all the control you could want on your account, after selecting your category, and you can also switch between them if you like, though that could cost you dedicated fans. You have full access to blocking countries and users from your room. The site also offers 24/7 live model care from the support team.

Taxes: Models must complete the necessary freelance forms, the 1099 and W-9, and report their earnings independently.

Freemium vs Premium

The world doesn't work in black and white, and neither do live cams. There are plenty of sites that blur the line between freemium and premium, not just as far as cost, but features too. Generally speaking, freemium sites all allow nudity and sex and kinky fetish fun in the open rooms which are free and tip-based, whereas premium sites discourage, and even forbid it. However, when you take sites like ImLive and Flirt4Free as examples, you can see that the rules are not enforced as harshly, especially in group chats.

When it comes to pricing, it's the same thing. Stripchat is a great freemium site, but the price per minute is rather high considering all the free action you get in the open rooms. And when it comes to features like HD broadcasts — typically a premium offering — but on Chaturbate, you get up to 4K, which no other premium site on the list offers. And so, while there are clear differences, such as model/performance quality, price, and features, most sites stay in the grey area, offering multiple options from both ends of the live cam spectrum.


How Much Can I Actually Make as a Fetish Cam Model?

That's an excellent question that depends very much on the model, the site/s she performs on, and the amount of time she dedicates to the gig. As a part time model, it's harder to make a living because statistically speaking, you get the most viewers the more you're online. You never know when a high-roller is going to join the chat. But this also depends on your visibility as a performer. When you go into CamSoda, for example, choose any room and you'll find links to the girls' social media accounts, such as Twitter, Tik Tok, Snapchat, Instagram, and others. Also, many choose to offer their own website or an account on a paid-for creator platform such as OnlyFans.

Earning potential also depends on the type of fetish performances you can perform. The more specific and niche, the harder it may be to draw a crowd. If you are on LiveJasmin and assign yourself only ASMR, there will be less of a mass flocking than if you also add yourself to a few other available fetish categories on the site. The bottom line is, you need to spend time and effort into building a "brand", or a "presence" to be successful, and if you do, you may be able to lower your hours, after you've built up your client base.


How Many Sites Can I Sign Up For?

This depends on the site. For example, Flirt4Free happily allows its models to stream at the same time to multiple platforms. Other sites forbid it, and insist their performers stay exclusive to them. In theory, if you work mostly for freemium sites like Chaturbate and Stripchat, you can sign up for as many sites as you'd like. Often users will go on several sites and see the same model performing on many of them at the same time. However, this is something you may want to consider not doing as a brand new model without experience, as juggling users/members chatting you up, tipping you, and making requests can be challenging enough on just one site. Consider that a site like Chaturbate could have dozens, and even thousands of members in one room all at once. However, sites like LiveJasmin and ImLive will usually have single digit amounts, because it is more of a premium site, and the chance to get to see some free skin is slim to none.


Is There a Fetish I Cannot Perform?

Another great question. In general, freemium sites don't place restrictions, as what is considered extreme is usually performed in private chats, so no one will monitor what you do with a member in private. However, in the open rooms, it's best to look at the fetish categories on display and see what is the norm on that site. For example, Stripchat has hundreds of fetish categories, but it doesn't offer some that Flirt4Free and ImLive do.

If you want to perform on a site like LiveJasmin, which is far more strict, it's important you don't stray from what's on offer as far as fetish, as that may get you kicked off the site as a performer. However, things are different in private chats, especially on a site like ImLive, which offers a feature called Fulfill Your Fantasy, which enables the member to post a fantasy request that only the models can see. If you see a fetish there you're dying to perform but is not listed under the other categories, be smart and contact the 24/7 live support to make sure it's ok to give that user what he's craving, and you can express yourself fully.


Conclusion

As a fetish lover, you know how unique we all view are particular inclinations, and performing on live cam sites is no different. If your passion is fetish, the more likely candidates to match your sensibilities would be the freemium sites, especially CamSoda, Stripchat and Chaturbate. That being said, a premium site like Flirt4Free could be beneficial too for a new model, as it has multiple sections on it dedicated solely to fetish, and it also offers 24/7 support which the freemium sites mentioned do not.

For a new model, we recommend focusing less on the earning potential, (as vital as it is as a goal) and more on how to be as visible as possible, on a site that everyone loves and enjoys. On CamSoda, for example, you can tell the models are having a blast, and they're also connected to their social media accounts, even their Amazon wish lists. Wherever you start, we hope you find your fetish bliss on a site that compliments your style of performance. Now, go break a leg!
