How does Alexis feel about cam talent? Is camming a prep for shooting scenes for studio paychecks?
She starts us off with a little personal history. She cammed early on in her career and wanted to get back into it.
She’s never regretted the move.
“Camming’s great, honestly. If you have the extra time [and] want to make some extra money, you can hop online and start making that money from home. It’s so simple.”
Is the cam girl going to become the new porn girl?
“I think what you’re gonna find is the cam girl is gonna dip into shooting because it is gonna help make her name more [recognizable].” Alexis asserts. “I think it’s a good way to get your name out there.”
The popular MILF model talks about her personal situation.
My “private Snapchats and Only Fans,” Alexis says, represent “the wide range of my hustle as a performer, I could make money in so many directions I don’t even have to step my foot on set anymore [and] I love being on set, so don’t get me wrong.”
She brings up what most cam girls will tell you, it’s all about content.
“We’re producing our own content. We’re producing our own Only Fans, our Snapchats, ManyVids and stuff like that.” Alexis reminds us that “all the different cam sites” are available to every girl.
“It’s all related. If you are a performer or a cam girl or anything like that, you should definitely be cross-referencing everything. Having that variety is great.”
Producer and Performer
On the other hand, Alexis warns against putting all those proverbial eggs into one basket, particularly when it comes to social media, a cammer’s life blood. Citing Instagram as an example, Alexis points out that they can block you “and poof it’s gone, you lost your business. You’re off the face of the earth.”
Like any good money manager, Alexis insists on diversification when it comes to online offerings.
Incidentally, making it all work is to a girl’s advantage.
“Doing camming is teaching you how to be a producer [and] that makes you an even better performer.”
Of course, cam girls are communicating with the fans directly and in Alexis’s view, this has benefits for the studios.
“I always tell the producers and directors, look for the cam models, because they’re used to dirty talking and looking into the camera and pretending they’re getting a response back. They’re used to improvisation by themselves.”
The Amateur Stuff
I mention that camming and homemade porn seem to be inseparable. Alexis believes this is a good thing.
“Homemade porn is on the comeback now with private Snapchats and Only Fans. I sit at my house and do content all day. I get online and ask my fans what do you guys wanna see?”
For the most part, she works alone.
That is empowering, actually, and not difficult.
In the end, it comes down to the basics. “When you think of it, we’re all shooting our own content,” she says.
If that is true, then is the cam girl an updated version of amateur porn.
Alexis lights up with certainty at the question.
“Yeah! Way more because people are doing boy-girls and girl-girls. What amateur porn does is it gives the average person [the fan] a connection. And so, if people can connect, you can have a sale.”
Finally, I ask about the three-legged-stool of porn and is camming the fourth leg?
Alexis thinks so . . .
“You have shoots, escorting, feature dancing, [and] camming.”
Then she expands the possibilities by including “our private sites and our producing” into the income mix.
And don’t forget to think about convenience . . .
“I mean even some cam sites now are mobile, or can stream from your phone. If you can be mobile, you’re gonna be in everyone’s hand.”
“So, I think you probably have about five legs [on that stool].”
She’s nailed it, I think, and concludes with a positive note that defines the personality of Alexis Fawx.
“Rather than just looking at myself as a pornographer, I look at myself as a brand, a business. I mean turn your passions into businesses [that work] for you.”
