Most cam girls live on their tips. The site their on takes two thirds of the per-minute cost (on average) leaving what little is left for her to average not much more than minimum wage. Like a waitress in a fancy restaurant, however, cam girls live off their tips. That puts a lot of pressure on men to be there and provide for them. Don’t fall into the trap. Think before you tip and you’ll see how often you’re tempted to just throw your money away. Save your tips for when they really count by avoiding tipping in these six situations.
If She’s Performing for Someone Else
“Don’t tip her unnecessarily”
It’s pretty common to go into a group chat and have someone request something that blows you away. Maybe you just never thought to ask for that, or maybe he beat you to it. Anyway, he tipped her, she performed the act, and you loved it. It’s a big temptation to throw in a few bucks or a couple tokens on top of what he’s tipping her. Resist the temptation. You’re paying for something that someone else already paid for when you do that. Instead you should save those little tips up to one big tip that will let you request that same thing (or something very similar) from her at a later time. For now, just enjoy the fact that you got a great look at something thanks to the wonders of a group chat instead of a private session. Thank the guy who requested it, but don’t tip on top of what he gave her.
If She Milks the Performance for Time
On adult cam sites a performer milking a performance for time is the equivalent of a cab driver taking the long way around. If you ask for her to get dressed in a costume she says she has but then she spends ten minutes finding it and another ten putting it on slowly (this doesn’t count if she puts it on in a very sexy way, some sort of reverse strip tease sounds like a good value for your money situation) she’s just wasted twenty minutes that you were paying for. If she keeps doing this, you should take the extra money out of her tip if she doesn’t do something special to make up for if.
If there’s lot of dead time on camera this rule also comes into play. If she’s not very good at keeping the conversation going there may be a lot of awkward lags in the conversation. An experienced, competent cam girl makes sure that you’re never bored when she’s on camera. If she doesn’t do that then you know that you’re in for a boring, clumsy show. If you’re paying for wasted time then you should just take it out of her tip. You have a budget to stick to (probably), so don’t let her force you to blow your budget out of the water because it takes her six minutes to put on a pair of tights. That’s not your problem.
If She Breaks Character
A lot of what cam girls are selling is the illusion. She makes up a persona that men will love and she turns into anything you want her to be. Friendly or unfriendly, easy going or high energy is all part of her charms. If she breaks character a lot (say, to scream angrily at someone who’s being rude in her chat) she’s broken the unspoken contract that you had at the beginning. She’s taken you out of the moment, ruined the illusion that you had of her and wrecked a lot of what she had going for her. That’s not the way for a camming adult on a site to behave. Sloppy service isn’t something that you should pay above and beyond for.
If She Refuses All Your Requests
Cam girls have limits too. Just because she didn’t want to do one kinky request you had is no reason to stiff her a tip. However, if she just wasn’t willing to do anything you wanted (even the vanilla stuff), and she had a bad attitude about it and gave a lackluster performance when you did make her go off script and do a personal request for you that’s crossing a line. If she’s not willing to provide service than she shouldn’t be working, and it’s as simple as that. If you wanted to watch a show that wasn’t personalized to you and that you didn’t have any control over you could have watched some porn instead. If she’s not willing to work with you then you know that she’s not willing to work for a tip. You also know that the next time you hop online to view adult cam sites you’ll pick another cam model.
If She Delivers a Very Lackluster Performance
Out of all the reasons out there, this one is the most obvious. If the service is bad, don’t tip for it. That’s all you have to do. If she half-asses her performance, isn’t snappy or engaging, doesn’t respond to flirting or warm up as the session progresses then you’re totally within your rights to skip the tip. If she was a waitress who dropped your food, got your order wrong, and didn’t even apologize would she be getting a 30% tip? Of course she wouldn’t. Tips make up a cam model’s wages, but that assumes that she’s doing her job. If she’s not even doing her job than there’s no reason for her to be getting good wages on top of everything else. You can explain why you’re not tipping too if you don’t intend to see her again. Don’t be rude or demanding; that’s the kind of thing that will stop her from taking you seriously. Just say that you really felt like she was phoning it in and you didn’t see anything that would be worth a tip.
If She’s Just Hanging out in Free Chat
This is another case of tipping being unneeded. Most websites for camming adults have a free chat mode where the cam models can hang out and hope that their can find a client to take them private. This means that it’s free to watch her, she’s flirting, and she’s not doing that much. She has to leave something to the imagination, after all. So why would you tip her when she’s in a free chat? Unless she’s doing a strip for tips game, you can save your money and think about keeping it all together and actually buying a private session with her if you like her that much. It’s just unnecessary to tip in free chats. Choose only a legit cam site to give away your tips. Visit thecamsitesguide.com to get more information on an adult cam site and about tipping habits.
There are lots of times when it’s rude not to tip a cam girl. Thankfully for your wallet there are just as many when it would be pointless or just plain ill thought out to tip her. Keep a good head on your shoulders and really think about every tip you’re giving. Did she earn it? Did she go above and beyond to make you comfortable? Did she perform well? Did someone else already pay for this, or should no one have to? Once you know the answer to those questions you’ll be able to more effectively budget your money so that you can get the most out of your camming experiences.
