Chaturbate has a huge number of male webcam models. As you scroll through the male category page, you will find a boatload of men on cam. Most of these guys aren't professionals looking to earn money. They are mostly straight guys jacking off on cam, while trying to convince cam girls to join their rooms and watch them for free.
If you are looking to be a professional male cam model, you can easily build a loyal user base for yourself. These users will log in to Chaturbate, just to watch you when you log on.
You can set your profile up, so that only certain genders and locations can see you. If you want to be a male cam model, but not a gay one, you will have to make yourself hidden to men, otherwise that's going to be the majority of the users who visit your room.
On Chaturbate, you get 5 US cents per token received in tips. That's about 62% commission. You can get paid twice a month, with a minimum pay out of $50.00.
