I don't understand WHY that's popular, though.

Think of it this way. Cam shows have perks that pre-recorded shows (or random internet porn) do not have, such as:

- It’s happening live in real time (compare to live sports on TV... there’s an element of excitement knowing you’re experiencing it as it happens)
- You can interact with the model (subject to her terms, and subject to your own comfort level, but still... it’s not even an option with pre-recorded stuff)
- If the model’s tip menu has options that I enjoy and I have tokens to spend, I can basically customize my experience

On top of all that, I’m also attracted to the idea of trying to please the model by making the Lush vibrate. Especially if the model reacts authentically (or is good at faking it, lol). And even more so if continued Lush tipping leads to progressively bigger rewards (after a while clothes come off, positions change, she makes herself squirt, dildo joins the party etc). Then it becomes a game within a game, for some members. You’re tipping for the show, but also seeing what the next X amount of tips inspires her to do.

One model that I frequently visit is insanely sexy while responding to the Lush. Her facial expressions and subtle moans alone keep me tipping. Sometimes I’ll spend triple the price she charges to get fully nude just to keep her moaning and touching with her clothes still on. I don’t even care if it’s authentic. It’s real enough to captivate me. :)

It's made with high quality silicone so it's not porous and very easy to clean (warm water and soap is enough) and any bacteria, funghi or viruses won't survive long on it's surface outside of human body. I completely understand not everyone will be comfortable with the idea of using previously used sex toys, but as long as they are made with not porous body safe materials and properly cleaned it's not really a health risk or uhygienic.
Thank you a lot for your input! I admit that I'm not an expert in materials so I actually thought it could be dangerous for the second person who uses it.

Anyway, you're absolutely right, not everyone would feel comfortable using a "second-hand" toy. I personally wouldn't.
But if there's no actual risk & someone feels comfortable, so be it.

That's the reason why I'll never understand permanent freeloaders who aren't willing to spend any money EVER.
Like, what's the point?
If you never tip, interactions you get, vary from very limited to non-existent.
I also don't get why these dudes stay in one model's room for hours. Do they wait for someone to tip for a show? It can take quite a while. Do they open 1000 tabs at once in hope to see a free show somewhere? It doesn't make sense (+ too much pressure on their phones or PCs).

I literally see some dudes almost every stream. They were greys back in 2016. They're still greys now. So it's not "I'm a newbie and I want to make sure it's worth it" thing. No excuses.
They miss out on so many things.
Yeah, they don't value models' time and energy, it's obvious. But it also clearly shows that they value their own time either.
If you don't want to interact via conversation or tips, why choose cam-sites? There are tons of "free" (stolen) porn on the Internet which doesn't require any interaction.

I believe that the whole point of camming is interaction.
If you're not a part of interaction, it can't be as fun as when you are.

This is one of the things I still don't (and will never) understand after a few years of camming.

You made a great point, though!

I bet some of them are just opening rooms in different tabs and then forgetting about it, honestly. Or like you suggested, they’re opening multiple rooms at once and waiting to see the action pick up in one of them. I agree that they’re missing out on the funnest part by not participating, and probably also wasting their own time.

Occasionally you figure out that one or two of the “passive regulars” in the room are doing work for the model or vice versa (boosting her traffic through various methods, or helping her with payment processing in exchange for a cut, etc). I know a model who was “independent” in the sense that she didn’t work for a studio, but was paying a guy for the services listed above. She eventually told me she was starting a new account because she wanted to handle her own payouts. She’s been on the new account for a few months. One of her “passive regulars” with perfect attendance - I’m talking about anytime, any hour of the day, he’d be in her room doing seemingly nothing - has not visited a single time that I’ve noticed. And when that stopped, so did her regular surges in traffic from light-blue male broadcasters. Its not hard to figure out. Lol

I would say the thrill of creating instant interactivity with the model for a low amount of tokens. A single tip can elicit a moan and some movement from the model (fake or real doesn't matter to most).

@Smoothie You said a whole lotta words to say "she's like a video game!", my dude. But, you do have a way with words be nice about it. I should have known. Everyone love toys.

@Beawaresweety I hear that. I've had greys that have been on the site for years, that never want to contribute, so I outright ask "Why don't you want to support sex workers?" or if they beg I tell them "If something for free go to PH, and go leave the people alone while they're at work. You want me to come to where you work and start yelling at you to do stuff, and not pay you? No? Then, don't to it to other people." I have a regular that's a grey, and I talk to that person if my room is empty, and I feel like that person is disappointed when my attention shifts to tippers. I don't know what part of "I do this for part time income" that person doesn't understand, but they'll have to learn.

I've been in the game for a short while, and I've already gotten a lot. "I'll wire you the money", "I'll buy your videos directly from you using CB tokens (wasting my time, instead of buying them on the website)." I had a whole conversation with a guy that works in an airport that said he doesn't support any of the models on CB. He got my on Instagram and does follow4follow with any of us that are also on Insta. Just collecting people on social media, and not following, buying, or paying models.

I'm not interested in getting an IST because most of the freeloaders really are scumbags that could contribute, but don't (while I understand that some people have different situations as to why they can't contribute). I have too many days of quiet chats of people waiting for me to do something for free of waiting for someone else to start tipping. And, they can keep waiting. I'm not buying an interactive sex toy (because that's more than Lush) for that.

This. I also don't care if it's a fake. Good fakes, that's what I am paying for, a fantasy! I only visit engaging lush model, right now only one, I found it is the most fun for me. It is ok when others like more social interaction as on MFC. Personally, I get more fun and satisfaction from a long private with lush interaction! It is also fun in public, but mostly I have to run the show alone these days, even with 200 people in the room. Use the lush in the right way and it generates tokens on the fly! The model I visited before made between 20-30K during a 5 hour shift, almost every time I visited. She'd set a squirt goal every 500, which is really cheap I think. But it worked, the rain kept pouring down in a steady stream.
 
lovense has a wishlist, a good tipper might send you one, not expensive compared to tokens.
Yes. I have a lovense wish list too and the great thing about it for models is that they won't reveal your address to the buyer so you can feel safe and you don't need to spend money on a PO box.

One helpful tip with the lush is make sure your settings are not too high lol. There were times where I had hours of queue in my lush because I put the response time too long on some of the levels. The most important thing is you are having fun and interacting lush or no lush.

I refused to wear a lush and my wearnings was low, only from few regulars still got tips, but with lush doing at least 5 times more tips then without... guys dont see the reason to tip if you dont react for them .. they wanna know you feel them not just u sit there and they tip ..when they tip and u have lush is like they fingering your pussy :) 1 tk 1 finger, 2 tks 2 fingers ... 1000 tks a fist :)))

Just one viewer's opinion, but I can't stand the lush. Looks like some kind of weird pink tail. It's not a deal breaker, but I definitely prefer models who don't use them.

As far as tipping reactions, I've seen some good ones, and I always assumed they were good actresses (which I can respect).

As another viewer, I'm 100% with you on this. I've said it before and I'll say again -- I wish there was a way to do exclusion tags on searches for CB, or even MFC (but CB is where I frequent), especially given its popularity nowadays. It would greatly improve the site experience imo if one had the option of filtering out #lush or #lovense etc.

For me, it's not a deal breaker either if a model uses one, but it is a deal breaker for me if the 'tip menu' is only the lush times-per-token menu. If I am looking for something, I'd rather just give one (or a few) bigger tips and be done with it. However, the whole lush dealio promotes a bunch of smaller tips in succession. At least on CB, whenever you tip, the tipping amount screen covers a chunk of the model's video. It's rather annoying. Maybe there's a way to get by it, but I haven't figured it out.

I don't mind the Lush and like it in some cases. But I'm with you on the resulting mess on Cb's chat. Wish there was a way to not display or minimize it but don't think that there is.

Actually, Cb's chat is kind of a mess overall. Way too much crap coming up all the time in the chat box between bots and notifications and Gifs, etc., etc.
