Camgirl, clip producer and PSO Katy Churchill gives some tips on how to create and sell audio files. This includes how to produce decent audio on an extreme budget and the best places to sell the audio files. Katy also shares her blanket trick that can improve the audio quality, especially if you're recording in large empty rooms! Here's Katy's bootleg audio recording tutorial and tips on how to make money selling audio files.
Blog Version Here: https://webcamstartup.com/camgirl-recording-audio-cheap-tutorial/
Producing The Audio Files On A Budget
Katy shares her methods of recording audio files on a budget and the cheapest setup available for models who want to get started. If you already have a mobile phone, then you’ve already got the most expensive piece required. The rest can be acquired insanely cheap, and you might have everything you need
Using Smart Phone Apps To Record
If you’ve got a smart phone, there will be a voice recording app on it. This can work just fine for recording audio files. The exact name of the mobile app will vary based on smart phone, but every phone comes stock with one. There’s also plenty of options in the app stores, if you are looking for something different.
Headphones With Microphone
You can find cheap headphones with built in microphones all over the place. Katy found a pair for $7 at her Local Walmart. This is by far the most affordable way to start recording audio files to sell. Simply plug the headset into the phone and start recording. The audio quality of the headset is much superior to that of the phone’s built-in microphone.
Using A Blanket To Improve Audio Quality
One way to improve the sound quality is to cover your head with blankets. This is especially true if you’re trying to to record the audio in a large, empty room, or a room with hardwood floors. Using the blanket system can help reduce the echo and reverb within the room. Katy personally does this in her bed, but it could work on a couch or anywhere else where you can comfortably place a blanket over your head and record the audio files.
Recording With USB Headsets / Computer
Another easy way to record audio files is through a USB headset and your computer. There's tons of headsets out there and there's some pretty affordable ones. It's basic and it works. Katy uses Audacity for audio editing. Audacity is a free and open-source audio editing tool available for Windows, Mac and Linux. You can record directly into the Audacity app.
Katy Demonstrates The Setup
In the video, Katy demonstrates the smart phone and cheap Walmart setup, both with the blanket and without the blanket. You can see the noticeable difference the blanket makes. You can also see the quality of the audio recording that the
Where To Sell Audio Files
Phone Sex Sites
Some phone sex sites will allow you to phone in and produce a recorded listing. Phone sex site members are able to call in and listen to your recorded listings, which makes the PSO money. Recorded listings are charged by the minute. If you are going to do recorded messages, it's recommended to produce and edit it and use something other than your built-in phone microphone. Audacity works great for this and you can even cut and splice audio files if you make a mistake or don't quite like the way one part sounds.
List of Phone Sex Sites: https://webcamstartup.com/pso/
Selling Audio Files On Adult Clip Sites
Some clip sites allow models to upload and sell audio files and a couple even have categories dedicated to them! iWantClips, Clips4Sale and ManyVids all have categories dedicated specifically for audio files.

Doxxing is a major issue in the adult industry, and especially when it comes to camming. Camgirls might get doxxed out of malicious intent, or they might actually get doxxed by accident by an ignorant fan or customer! Doxxing can occur on social media, on the camming and clip sites, forums and communities and other places. Here's information on how to prevent doxxing and how to deal with it.
Blog Version: https://webcamstartup.com/doxxing/
What Is Doxxing: Doxxing is where your identity and personal information is exposed. Doxxing is usually intentional, but it does happen by accident as well. Whether malicious or not, it's a major issue. Privacy is a huge concern for camming models and for good reasons! There's a lot of creepers out there, and there's also a lot of stigma towards sex work.
How Pornstars Get Doxxed: There's a lot of things that lead to doxxing. It could be another model after a falling out that might have 2257 documentation on file. It could be a customer who got the contact information through a payment app. It could be a customer who finds the personal social media accounts of a model. It could be an ex boyfriend/girlfriend after a falling out. It could be someone you know personally who sees you in porn.
How To Avoid Being Doxxed:
What's Their Reasoning: First off, is this malicious or not. It could be someone you know personally who sees you online and shares it without understanding the consequences. If this is the case, the 1st step should be to contact them and explain why it's not okay.
Reporting The Doxxing: If you can't get the person to remove the information themselves, you can report it to various places. Most the camming and clip sites will have a zero-tolerance policy towards doxxing and will react accordingly. Same with social network sites as well. Twitter, where a lot of doxxing occurs, has a report feature where you can report someone for posting private information. There's even a list where you can indicate what type of information is being removed. Twitter will even suspend accounts over this.
Blocking Specific Words From Chat: Some of the camming sites (MyFreeCams in particular) you can block specific words. This means that you can block your legal name, as well as any real life nicknames. You can also block other terms, like your city, street name, ect.
Regional Blocking: It's smart to use the regional blocking capabilities. In addition to blocking your home region, if you know where the people who are trying to dox you are located at, you can block their region as well.
Blocking / Reporting: Most sites will allow you to block individual users. You can also report the individual to the site(s) and get their entire IP banned.
Pursuing Legal Actions: Doxxing is illegal in most places and legal action is a possibility. Not only can leveraging the law help mitigate the doxxing issue, but the sites are more likely to take the situation seriously if there' legal action or pending legal action in place.
Being Doxxed By An Ex: You never think about it while going out with someone. How could your significant other possibly do anything malicious against you? But it happens. They'll log onto social media and dox you on their accounts, they'll log onto your camming site and clip sites, they'll harass you anywhere possible.
Going To The Police: It is possible to go to the police, although with internet crimes (especially adult industry) it's very hit or miss. If the situation is putting you in danger, however, this is something you should definitely consider.
No Contact Order: If you get a no contact order placed against the person doxxing you, suddenly it's no longer just a doxxing issue, there's also now a court-ordered no contact order.

For those looking to get into the adult industry, it can be very tempting to use payment apps such as Cash App, Venmo, PayPal, ect. Unfortunately, these apps are not adult-friendly. Even if you're using a merchant account instead of a personal account, it still doesn't work.
This is because the adult industry is a high-risk vertical. That means that we have a high chargeback rate (where transactions are reversed due to fraud, husbands lying to their wives ("I didn't buy that!), ect.). Chargebacks aren't profitable to companies like Venmo or PayPal. Therefore, they don't cater to our industry. This is also why adult-friendly payment processors charge a large percentage; to offset the cost of chargebacks.
As tempting as it is to get 100% of the money, you will eventually get banned. It might not be today and you might actually fly under the radar for a while, but you will eventually get banned. And unfortunately, once banned, you won't be able to use the service for your own personal sending or receiving of funds.
It doesn't matter if someone's wife catches their husband buying porn and they're covering their tracks, or you become a victim of the ThotAudit that's going around (FYI: Reporting camgirls / premium Snapchat girls / indie pornstars to the payment apps is easier than reporting them to the IRS) or the app just catches on to your transactions. It will eventually happen.
There are some high paying platforms for models (IndieBill, Unblur, Erotifix) that pay out 85% and cover chargebacks. That is actually an incredible bargain, all things considered. If you jumped into CCBill or another payment processor, you'd be getting charged points, an upfront cost and you'd be dealing with chargebacks.
If you're interested in receiving payments from clip sales and camming from PayPal, there are some sites that support PayPal payouts. They can do this because they're only using it for payouts and there's no chargeback risk on payouts. They can't use PayPal for customer transactions though, as that's where the high-risk is at.
If you're interested in PayPal payouts, we've got a directory of sites here: https://webcamstartup.com/paypal/
The other thing about these payment apps is that the people using them are not verified. There's a lot of catfish around, and these catfish use these sites for payments. All the camming sites and clip sites are required to verify their models to stay compliant with age verification laws (2257 Compliance). Because of this, everyone on those sites are verified and you know they're not a catfish.
On the flip-side of scamming, there's a lot of malicious customers that know they can get free content, simply by charging back / reporting a model to PayPal, Venmo, ect. By initiating a chargeback, they get their money back, they get free content or services, and you not only get charged-back, but the payment is reversed and any funds in the account might also get frozen.

2019 WTF (Webcam Training Forum) Aug 27-29th in Russia
Unboxing and review of the The Magic Wand Chair by Lucy's Novelties. Setting up the Magic Wand Chair is easy. Once unboxed, it sets up just like any other chair would. The chair looks and feels sturdy.
You can read the blog version here: https://webcamstartup.com/lucys-novelties-magic-wand-chair-review/
The chair has a hole in the top of it. Any sex toy can be mounted to the bottom of it. There's grips at the bottom of the hole that's designed specifically for the Hitachi Magic Wand. Although it's designed for the magic wand, other sex toys can be mounted on the chair as well.
Aerie grabs her vibrator to test out the Magic Want Chair. There's two main things to adjust the clamps. There's a wing-nut that can be adjusted, and a lever that makes the chair clamp down on the toy. Pro-tip: When adding your magic wand to the chair, make sure the buttons are facing out and not covered by the clamps.
When set correctly, the clamps have a real firm grip on the vibrator. Aerie can shake the chair and the toy without the toy budging from the chair. If the thickness isn't set properly, the vibrator will either move if it's too loose or it's possible to damage or imprint some toys if the settings are too tight.
The clamps appear to be a plastic or rubber-like material. The material isn't slick, so the toys won't move once gripped. They're also soft enough to not scratch or damage the toys. The divots on the toy also work to grab anything clamped down.
The positioning of the hole is perfect for Aerie. When sitting in the chair, the sex toy is right on her entire vaginal area. Not all body types are the same though, but it's possible to adjust where the chair is holding the vibrator, either moving it up or down. It's also possible to set it super low and sit on top of the vibrator.
Aerie thinks the chair would be perfect for BDSM / bondage / forced organism, but the chair can also be used for vanilla toy content or camming shows as well.
It doesn't need to be a wand-type sex toy. It could also be a dildo clamped into the chair a s well.
Although it would be possible to create your own chair, the clamp mechanism is fairly complex and would be difficult for anyone who's not a serious handyman to replicate. Would it be possible? Yes. Easy? It's a little more complex that drilling a hole in a chair. So for the price point of $170, it's worth it.
Because the sex toys are clamped into the chair, it leaves both hands free to do something else. When camming, you're usually multi-tasking. It could be messaging people on the site, tweeting or something completely different, but it's always nice to have both hands available to do something else. This makes the hands-free aspect to Lucy's Novelties Magic Wand Chair very convenient.
