What Are the Risks of Being A CamGirl, Will I Be Found Out?

Being ‘outed’ is a risk every cam girl unfortunately takes. While many women are able to keep camming a secret from friends and family, know that the risk of being found out does exist. Even geo-blocking one’s own city is not a perfect system. Technical mistakes do occur, and even with geo-blocking cam girls cannot prevent customers from recording private shows and posting them on the internet. Entire websites are devoted to these ‘pirated’ private shows, and further, some sites allow their affiliates to use private show recordings in their advertising campaigns. To combat this risk some cam girls wear wigs or heavy make-up to alter their features, but even that is never a guarantee.

Beyond that immediate risk, the internet is forever. You never know when an old video may pop up, even years down the road, so even after one stops camming the digital footprint of one’s time in the ‘cam world’ still exists. This is a particular risk for women who wish to get into careers in teaching, or any career that involves dealing with children where the stakes in being ‘outed’ are high.

I say this not intending to scare anyone away from camming, rather to ensure that women interested in becoming cam girls can weigh the potential risks and benefits before deciding whether to pursue this work.


Hiding One’s Face on Cam

While it is understandable that many models do not wish to risk being identified as a webcam model, in general models who never show their faces on cam do not do very well. There are a few exceptions to this rule, of course, but in general in order to earn well as a webcam model one need to connect with one’s customers and that is very difficult to achieve when they never see your face.

There are a few tips to minimize risk of being ‘outed’ as a camgirl, which involve wearing wigs, contouring one’s face with heavy make-up and never including pictures of one’s face in profile and gallery photos, but even then the risk of being outed remains. In choosing to work as a webcam model there is always a risk that one’s identity will be discovered, as this is the nature of the internet. For that reason many camgirls argue that in order for the risk to be worthwhile one should maximize earnings as much as possible, and for most that means showing one’s face on cam. In short, if being outed as a cammodel would have a devastating impact on your life, this job is not for you. The risk is low but present, and even if you never show your face on cam there have been incidents where irresponsible cam sites and studios have left identity documents in unprotected directories available on the internet, tying real names to webcam personae. Luckily these incidents are rare but they have occurred. In sum, to be a cammodel means risking the chance that your adult work will be discovered, even if you do hide your face.
