Despite the Coronavirus outbreak that wreaked havoc on most businesses, there are companies and industries that have remained ‘pandemic-proof’ and have sustained steady growth and enjoyed profits.
The survivors who turned crisis on its head
There have been several online businesses that have thrived.
Those that have made the most of the windfall gains are online education (teaching and training), health, pharmaceutical, streaming services, video downloading, courier services, content, agriculture, self-care product companies, remote work-from-anywhere jobs, and essential retail services.
These industries have beaten formidable challenges of the global lockdown, by moving online and leveraging digitization to make the best of the crisis. The Covid outbreak has propelled several people into learning and for some further honing their technical skills, and expanding their exposure to online/virtual landscape.
Online adult entertainment is the new game-changer
Alongside these, one of the game-changers creating waves is online/virtual adult entertainment. Whether it is selling Skype shows to make money, or performing as a webcam model on the live cam sites, there is a whole new gamut of exciting and engaging personalized adult entertainment activities to engage in and offer services for.
A win-win for everyone – performer, client and the operating network
Whether it’s a guy, girl, transgender or a couple, and irrespective of the orientation, there is enough room for online intimacy stuff like mutual masturbation, sex chat, dirty dancing, stripping, flirting and live sex. There is a boom in the adult entertainment industry, with even Coronavirus inspired porn doing the rounds and catering to the audience’s fetish and kinks.
Adult entertainment has experienced a sudden surge in numbers, especially as there are restricted travel hassles, stay-at-home orders, work-from-home situation, and a few and far between opportunities for people to meet in-person and get intimate.
The online/virtual sex industry is on an upswing as there is a huge demand for camming models who can provide relief to a frustrated audience, who wants a temporary respite from the clutches of harsh realities, and a sense of doom, morbidity and vulnerability due to the Coronavirus pandemic implications.
Demand for camming models sees a spike, with the number of users doubling up as subscribers/members to the live cam sites, and the traffic to the adult sites growing by leaps and bounds.
People are seeking some semblance of normalcy and respite
As most of the people are forced to stay cooped up in their homes, there is an undying desire to feel acknowledged, strike a conversation and engage in an interaction with a real person. That’s where the porn gets stumped by the rise in the popularity of live cam sites, where the performer offers personalized experience and a live connection virtually, and people consuming it feel satiated enough to pay for it.
That’s why there is an unprecedented trigger in the requirement and application for the cam performers /webcam models. For the webcam models, all they require is a robust internet connection, a good web camera and lighting coupled with oodles of self-confidence, a knack for experimentation, boldness coupled with a lack of inhibitions and any pre-conceived notions centring around the adult entertainment industry.
Dodging the bullet
Some of the camming models have easily notched up $3000-4000 a month, by working for eight hours on live cam sites, and this revenue is shared with the sites for their hosting, thus helping the adult entertainment industry circumventing the economic instability and downturn that most other professions have suffered.
