Are cam shows the future of porn? Perhaps they’ll never actually replace traditional porn, but there is something to be said for the excitement of getting to directly connect with a porn star and tell them to bend over and show you their starfish.
Sites like Flirt for Free and Cam 4 have been around for a while, and nowadays Randy Blue, Corbin Fisher, and COLT all host or advertise live shows. Even the New York Times sat up and took notice a couple months ago with a feature story about the trend. They noted obvious stuff like the fact that unlike traditional porn, cam shows can’t be pirated, and if you want to talk to porn star (or cam star) and make them do stuff, you have buy tokens, making it all a brilliant money-making model for pervs who want to be (almost) hands-on with their masturbation material. It’s estimated that camming now brings in about $1 billion, compared to the $5 billion currently made in the regular porn industry, both gay and straight.
One time golden boy of the traditional porn industry Zack Randall, who appeared poised for a comeback in 2011, appears to now be making a living down in Phoenix doing cam shows like this one yesterday from the comfort of his own home. Care to spend some tokens to make him shave his beard?
And of course GayHoopla just launched this past summer, featuring cam shows with Sword fave and GayHoopla founder Dmitry Dickov, among others. Guys like former Fratman Tayler/Doc TayTay are obviously made for the medium, because they’re free-wheeling exhibitionists who don’t need a script, and who obviously get off on the immediate interaction and attention not to mention that such immediacy and intimacy with dedicated fans can lead to other rewards, off one’s Amazon’s wish list, for example. And cam shows aren’t limited to these solo situation either in fact on Gay Hoopla tonight, Friday November 15 at 7 p.m. PST, Cole Money and JJ Swift are going to be doing a live sex show, and fucking for the home audience.
What do you think, readers? Are cam shows fun? Boring? A waste of money? Do tell us.
