  • Things that she found in her “office” was a computer, a camera, a bed and a nice backdrop (which she found really weird)
  • Said that she was not trained at all
  • It all started with chat then everything started to get nasty in the chat room but she just went with the flow because she did not want to look stupid or embarrassed
  • Saw the money meter going up at the side of her computer but was not sure what was going on
  • When the guy who got her in private asked her if she had a toy, she thought that he was crazy and that he was referring to a doll or something
  • She agreed to take her top off eventually since it is a normal thing to do in modeling
  • Eventually, she took off her pants as well and did everything all the way, she was thinking that since she masturbates, why not masturbate and get paid at the same time
  • She was getting around $2.50-$3.50 per minute at that time
  • On her first day, she stayed at the studio for about 8 hours and made more than a grand which she got paid at the end of the week
  • Was paid more compared to the other girls in the studio because she was very entertaining and was happy on cam her first day
  • Did not try other camming companies because she was doing well with that company
  • Was doing cam shows 2-3 times a week but eventually came in more often because of customers’ requests

  • Diamond is doing very well in Asia and in the UK
  • Taking up college, being around business people who know how to market themselves and do different things to keep themselves up there helped her in putting up and maintaining her own business
  • Diamond will not over saturate herself though; she will only perform for companies that she prefers, do the things that she likes and make sure that she is taken cared of
  • She could be found in different social networks and has four different Twitter accounts because she does not want her impostors to hack her URL
  • According to her, research is the name of the game when working for webcam companies
  • She is making a great living out of cam modeling so there is no need to shoot movies all the time
  • Since she moved to Florida, cam modeling has become her main source of income
  • Diamond did and is still doing different conventions related to adult and fitness
  • She learned how to continually evolve
  • She enjoys what she is doing and will stick to it because it gives her the chance to meet different people especially since she does not go out a lot
  • Usually spends her time working on her sites or with family and cousins
  • For Diamond, it is important to enjoy what she’s working on, but she doesn’t want to forget to plan for the future
  • She will not do things that are not in line with her plan
  • She started her site around 2005 because her cam modeling career was doing well
  • It is good to have an agent especially when you are starting out because you still don’t know who to trust
  • An agency can help you get into opportunities that you can’t get in by yourself, though right now, she does not need an agent as much
  • Diamond researches companies she might work with before making decisions
  • According to her, it is good to have someone with a good reputation that can get you what you want and direct you to the right way; someone who has your back and would work for you
  • Don’t forget to take some responsibility in selecting an agent
  • Nowadays, it is easier to get in the cam modeling industry because there are more sites
  • Recommends looking for sites that have a lot of girls because more girls means more traffic and traffic is the key to getting private sessions
  • She also recommends looking into how much a site would pay per minute and what it does because each site is different
  • Says it is important to have your own personality
  • If you are not doing as well as you like, try talking to other cam models and look online for cam model sites that could help you
  • These days, a lot of porn stars are becoming cam models because they can’t find work but Diamond feels that it should be the other way around
  • One should think about making money for oneself and not making other people rich all the time; this is mostly the case for contract stars
  • She was asked to be a contract girl but she turned it down
  • Going around different sites would help aspiring girls because if you stick to just one site, some people may not be able to visit that site, may be banned from such sites or they may not like the site that you are in
  • When you are on different sites all the time, your making money almost always
  • Watch the traffic of the site. If it gets slow, you could leave that site and move on to another site; it is also a good way to manage or balance your time
  • Traffic depends on who is online and what is going on
  • Know when to take a break or go to another site
  • Don’t be in so many sites either; it is important that you pay attention to everyone and treat everybody with the same respect
