Prostitution is the oldest profession to date and will evolve and continue to the end of time, whether it can be considered a modest earning will depend on the mindset of the individual. As long these cam whores are happy and there clients are happy I dont see a problem. But the rewards are sweet so these girls are always going to be tempted.
They want to feel a connection with a female because they lack that in real life so they all run to Cam sites and literally pay for it. Fundamentally speaking by definition these nude cam women who masturbates on camera or exploit there bodies sexually online in exchange for money/internet pts or w/e are prostitutes. I've been dating this girl for 5 years and a little over year ago I let her start webcamming from my apartment.
What got me thinking was that I was trying to decide whether these girls were pathetic, or very, very smart.
On one hand, they are, for all intents and purposes, prostitutes.
