Angel Jones is one of our Tuesday Treats. When she agreed to do a feature with us, we were nothing short of excited. She patiently waited while we finished moving servers and made adjustments to the site. When it came time to do the interview, Angel did one better. She took the time to give us some insight into what it is to be a cam girl. It's so much more than sitting there and looking pretty. A great deal of work goes into being a webcam model and we appreciate Angel taking the time to give us some perspective.
My name is Angel Jones or just AJ for people who know me. I'm 26 years old, and I'm a cam girl, as a full-time job, something like the escort of the virtual age. Men (and sometimes women) come to me for companionship, consolation, conversation –– and most of all, sex. In exchange, I broaden my horizons. I get to interact on a very intimate level with people from all over the world. And, of course, I get money. And a pretty good amount of it at that.
But it's not all peaches and cream. It's not like you can take off your shirt and suddenly the financial world is your oyster. Being a cam girl is deceptively hard, and camming really is a full-time job. It's about promoting and marketing your own business, creating a name for yourself, finding that little niche in the grand scheme of things where you fit in – all the while being the product, the showgirl, the bread and butter. The truth is, it takes time to build the fan base that will turn over into a decent income. It takes hours upon hours of grueling labor, replying to thousands of messages a day from needy clients who live in a fantasy world where they're your only priority. At the same time, you're maintaining your body, your hair, your face, your image, to stay presentable, fashionable and on top of the trends. There's no time for a sick day if you want to make real money. Even when you're not on camera, you are still working. It doesn't stop. Camming is a 24-hour-a-day job. Basically, my entire life is now about camming. I rarely have time for myself to go out with friends like I used to or to have a significant other. I’ve become more like a ghost in my real life and have dedicated all my time and energy to this for the past 2 years.
A day in my life consists of waking up around 2-3 pm because I’m European but I actually live in the US time zone – another thing that has changed since I’ve started webcamming. The first thing I do is check my phone for messages I get on my social media accounts and reply as many as possible. Then I just make a huge coffee and make the plans for the day – what outfit I’ll be wearing, what kind of pictures to take…all related to camming. Then I start doing my workout, which takes between 45 min and two hours. I get a shower and get directly to work. While I put on my face for the day which means hair, makeup, body maintenance and that takes about an hour, I’m monitoring my Twitter and Snap accounts. When that’s done I usually take a few promo photos that I can upload on my profiles during the day to keep them fresh. Then, it's finally time to start my real work day.
By the looks of things, you'd think that this job is easy. It's really just girls sitting around and looking pretty, isn't it? In reality, cam girls go through a lot to pay our bills. We deal with so many different kinds of people, some very nice and sweet and generous, some “trolls”, freeloading clients who will join our chat for the sole purpose of making our day hell. I’m sure there are a lot of people who think that cam girls are degraded wastes of potential and talent. In reality, a lot of us are smart with college degrees, business-oriented women, and men. It varies just as any other job does.

Then there’s the work I do while I’m actually on camera, enjoying the job itself. I have to catch the right angles and make sure I look attractive and seductive at all times. Cameras can make for some seriously unflattering angles, let me tell you. On top of that, you need to know how to keep your balance in interesting positions on 6-inch heels.
There are an infinite number of fetishes out there. The saying is, “If it exists, there's a fetish for it”. It is so true. Every minute spent with a paying client entails assessing that client's personal needs to find out what will satisfy them and bring them back for more. Some fetishes are very dark and difficult to deal with, but it’s up to me if I want to do it or not. I smile and I accommodate them, and smile more and pretend I am whatever they want me to be. I've been a dominatrix; I've been a submissive slave. I've been years younger than my real age and I've been years older. All of these things are just a daily part of my life. It's not all darkness and despair; sometimes there are really great days, days where it all pays off – where a sweet regular client will give you a “just because” tip or a new client will come along who has a really awesome personality and is buckets of fun, or an anonymous follower will buy you something nice from your wishlist. Like any job, webcam modeling has its ups and downs and that's what makes the whole thing so much fun.
I really do adore my job. I'm just a normal girl on cam or off cam, of course, I'm a bit naughtier on cam but that's the whole point :). I'm a hard worker and very ambitious. I love meeting new people and encouraging them toward sexual release. I love showing off the body that I've worked so hard on. I love the endless stream of compliments. I love the friends I've made and the connections I've discovered with coworkers from all of the ends of the earth. In fact, my best friend is a cam girl and she’s the reason I got into all this. Yeah, I love the attention. I'd really love for people to come away from this realizing that sex workers are people too. We work our 9-5 jobs just like everyone else – and actually, we work a lot more than that. We are deserving of love and respect and admiration and praise: the same as the next person. And camming isn't all it's cracked up to be. Sure, it's a fantastic job and I'd never trade it for anything else in the world… but it takes a certain mindset and a certain work ethic. It's not for everyone. It's not just about sitting there and looking pretty.
I'd really love to thank all my fans and followers for being so supportive and so sweet to me – I know I wouldn’t be here without them and I’m so grateful for that. Thank you guys, love you so xoxo !!!
