So time for a mini-rant about ManyVids.....

This shit is so confusing, and I can't for the life of me understand who designed this site. First of all if you have to choose between content type, but if you're a straight male making solo content it's not entirely clear which category to choose. And on top of that your content won't show up on MV Gay Boys (despite what support told me months ago), and you can't access that section through the site. I have to open a private tab and do a google search for it....
I agree, it was better when they first allowed guys onto the platform, where MV Boys was solo / male/male content and b/g content had to be listed under producer, it made the site a lot easier for people to find what they were looking for, since MV Straight and MV Gay are sub categories of MV Boys and didnt originally exist, for a large part if a guy is looking for solo male content then unless you are playing up the fact that you are straight in the video they dont care as long as they get to see what they want so having separate categories for gay and straight really dosnt make any sense. I never actually had to make the decision of if I wanted to be listed as MV straight or MV Gay since those sub categories didnt exist when I made my account so mv Just moved all my content into what they felt was the relevant category (which was mv gay as all of my content is solo content).

You can’t categorize your content with multiple options!?! WTF MV?
Nope, and it's not even a per video basis it's account level categorization, as far as I know you cant change it after the account is set up either (could be I have just never found the option / really looked for it). Everyone that I know that does gay + trans + straight content was told by MV they needed to set up a separate account for each, and they wont combine earnings of the 3 stores so each store has to make payout individually. ( That was a few years ago, before the sub categories came in, they were told they had to have an MV producer account for straight content, an MV boys account for gay content and an MV trans account for trans content).

The way it's set up now, I really dont understand what the MV Producer accounts are for...

I was so confused when I made my account with all the producer stuff, because I saw other talking about it but it was still confusing. Reading this whole thing just gave me a headache.

So I've started the habit of banning trolls on Chaturbate. It's really of no surprise to me, that there's more of those than actual tippers. But I still find it disrespectful, that people can come to your room, and not say anything. Grays, that's a given, at least we know they have no money, or at least no interest in spending any. Now I'm talking about the colored names (Lavender, Purple, Blue, Cyan). They haven't tipped, say hi when I greet them, or even reply to my initial PMs. And I don't do initial PMs lol, but I figure to make em feel special, I'll do it. Also, I sort my list by tokens, so I know who has, and who doesn't. A lot of fake, broke colored members, who tip small amounts just to not be gray, it's pathetic. Which is more of a reason to ban them, what good are they for right? LOL.

Just to be fair, if someone tipped me, took me pvt, etc.; after a few days, they come back, they don't spend, but have a good conversation, being respectful, then I'm cool with that. But if they come back after a month and talk about what they did last month, begging or any foolishness like that, they can get banned too in my opinion LOL.

I like to know your experiences and possibly learn from you guys. I've been camming for 10+ years, I'm still a student, there's always room for improvement.

Yay, not sure if any of you are SM guys, but they updated the stream agreement today. Looks like to crack down on bottom nudity in free chat (for one). The way I see it, that should help out all of us, that are serious about making money on SM. Wanted to share :happy: I've been hoping for this for a while, for everyone's sakes :h:

Has anyone ever tried camming with Camsoda? I signed up on that site months ago, and realized they had next to no traffic for guys. I was looking at the site again last night and today and it seems significantly better, even if it still has low traffic. Whereas before I'd see 1-3 models with 1-3 viewers I'm seeing 8 averaging 20-26 viewers. I think I'll try splitcamming on the site for when CB is slow

Edit: Actually after looking closely it seems the traffic increase is mostly anons, though certainly more tippers than before. But hopefully this is the start of an upward trend

Dude, this mentality has got to be a lot of work. Like... worrying about who tips or doesn't. Yes some people are cheap fuckers, but if you spend your time analyzing each one's personality, I feel like it's going to eat up a lot of your mental energy. But I guess our outlook is not something very easy to change...

I see they invest a lot in traffic for guys and it's a good opportunity since most camsites don't even care about us lol.

A lot of the traffic you see on flirt4free (in regards to room counts) is mainly bots, from the second you log in you will have a stream of unregistered users coming into the room, and I noticed it always seemed to stop around the same number (very bot like behaviour) They do have a good base of paying members though, but if they dont feel you are earning enough they will force you to lower your rates (so watch out if you cater to a niche market) and last time I was on there the lowest rate was 10 credits a minute I believe, which is a nice $0.25 cents a minute Support there is terrible, (I have been trying to change my payment method for 6 months and it's still not getting done and they often give wrong information such as an agent told me a credit was worth $0.25, but the actual value of the credit is $0.025, it may have been a typo but it should have been addressed since that makes a massive impact when working out your goal amounts)
They also have deals with studios for them to have priority placement (livejasmin has the same kind of deal too) where studios basically bid for all the top spots on the site.
The site is split over multiple domains too, so to broadcast you use the software, to access your model stats it's one domain, payments are on a completely different domain and there is also a domain where they provide training too.
The broadcast software was pretty good, annoying that you cant resize it (it's a full window application)

So to summerize:
Pros:
-The broadcast window is ok
-Traffic is ok

Cons:
-Forced earnings cap
-Support is awful
-Deals in place with studios to provide them with priority placement

As much as I would want to say I dont recommend it, I cant, there is paying traffic there and there is a chance that you can do well, it's just there are diffidently more downsides to the site than most, but if you find that the site works for you (other than support being absolute crap) then most of the cons about the site wouldnt really be affecting you.

Thank you. I am currently on Chaturbate / Streamate / ImLive / CameraPrive and I am looking to add one more. Flirt 4 Free seems to be good. My chaturbate traffic took a huge hit (I lost pretty much 90% of my traffic) so I have to add more camsites so I can keep my income coming. F4F and CAM4 are on my list (Although I hate cam4 I might have to to on there)

f4f keeps like 80%+ of the money, no? I earn a lot in there but their cut is insane. I have been thinking of doing two sites simultaneously but their system (party chat, no nudity on normal chat, people dont really go pvt) is so different from CB that it would be impossible

Anyone ever done skype shows? I got some requests from twitter but not sure how to get paid for them
If you don't want to rely on riskier methods like cashapp/venmo/paypal then maybe have them tip you on other content sites that give you a higher %, like PornHub, Onlyfans or ManyVids which I believe all give 80%. Crypto can be nice if both you and the client are comfortable using, and of course there are giftcards.

crypto is absolutelly perfect in this regard, but I've asked it and my regs aren't using it yet. Thanks for the info! I'll try using those higher% sites

Lol, you're right. I guess it gets frustrating at times, just playing the waiting game. Honestly, if I made no money that day, but had exciting convo, then my outlook would shift a bit. But I stopped now, it was a waste of time. Found other ways to kill the time ;)

Hey dudes, what about clip and tube sites? Right now I'm doing PornHub and ManyVids, planning to also start on Xvideos, Xhamster, Clips4Sale and Onlyfans.

Which ones do you guys use, and which ones do you recommend avoiding? Are there some that are specifically good for male content?

I did ManyVids for awhile with limited success. That was largely due to the fact that I was lazy and didn't keep putting out new videos though. Eventually I just moved my stuff over to Pornhub for free. The PR for the shows was worth more than I would generally make from MV sales. Not sure if there's a better one for men though, only tried those two.

Honestly I'm pretty sure the clip sites suffer from the same issue as the cam sites for men: Too many guys more than happy to give it away for free.

I've only tried PH and MV, but tbh I sell way more videos on Chaturbate then I do on those two platforms.

CB sells better in here too, but 90% of the sales are when I'm online, I suppose that's the same with you.

Two different things, IMO. Chaturbate = lots of money, lots of time. Get payoff right away. PH, MV= little money, little effort. Takes a while to pay off

I'm happy with results from PH and MV so far, especially because I can do the work while my room is dead on CB. Would like to upload to more websites tho.

Thank you for your answers, Primaltime and Nigerian Prince!

Hey great people;

First post here. One month into Chaturbate and was looking for a forum where a male could ask questions and found this thread. I've read all 19 pages of posts; I sort of found what I was looking for but I'll still ask the original question I had in my head after a bit of history:

I'm 65 (yikes, right?) bearish, and most of the guys who come to my room call me daddy and that's OK. I've got it as a #tag so I am promoting it. I also use the #gay tag so I think that brings a fair amount of men to my room who want to interact with a gay guy which might remove some of that "will he or won't he" thinking. I considerer myself somewhat attractive but have some stumbling blocks there as when I was in my 20's I really was a handsome lad and since the looks have fallen I've not felt all that great about my looks I started camming at the beginning of the lockdown; my company is working from home and I have the kind of job where I can go off the clock for a bit and check into my room and see if I can get anything going. I am mostly on later in the evening between 10:30 PM and Midnight. I am on Chaturbate to make some extra money to pay down some debt and have no fantasies that this could become full-time work for me.

I am not by any means what I think of as "hot" but a lot of the guys are liking it and what they see and that's great. My self-esteem has actually risen a bit since I've been on Chaturbate. I've not have anyone in my personal life I can talk to about this; I am married to a wonderful man who just would not get why I was doing this; so I'm doing it on the sly. That's not my issue (yet......)

Here's the original question: I'm on Chaturbate because I am indeed a performer at heart and apparently an exhibitionist. My first couple of outings were not tip-approved yet but I had great feedback so I figured what the heck and got approved for tips. I've got a small-ish following and some what seem to be really devoted fans. They pop on most every time I get online. That's great. The problem is my tips suck. I wanted to ask what I should be doing differently. Here's how I am online and why:

I have this inert thinking that if people like my room they will tip. I don't have a tip menu; for me it makes me feel like a trained seal working for a hunk of fish (which, it is, but) I hope for the tips to me more organic in nature. God knows I am probably thinking of all this from the wrong frame of mind. When I visit a guy's room who I think has a great gig, I tip for the performer, not so much the performance. I always send a tip note explaining why I gave the tip; could be a nice smile, and great chest, a cute facial tic, or even a nice cock. A lot of times I'll be asked if I want something for the tip and the guys are usually sort of taken aback when I say that I don't need anything, that the tip was just appreciation. I guess I was brought up to believe the "do unto others" thing and it's kind of how I live my life. We'll that's not working for me in my room. I figured if I out on a good show, then tips would just not stop coming. Not happening. I don't think it was cocky thinking, I just did not know how it all worked. Last week I had a great free show; 12 or so people in the room, many purples and blues, and I did the most robust jackoff session of my life including a cum show (which I consumed) and by god I thought it deserved some sort of reward trophy and all I got were a total of 25 tips.

I've been doing some of what's been suggested in the thread so far; leaving my shirt on at the beginning, not showing any dick until later, I greet each person, try to make small talk, and then I sort of get in the flow and want to start feeling the sexy and before you know it I'm hard as hell and whacking and getting great "Oh, Daddy" comments and everyone seems to be having a great time (including me) and yet no tips. When it was over and saw the low tips, while I was panting, I said something to the effect of "geesh, seems to be THAT deservers some sort of tip" for which not came. I now know from a previous post that that was a no-no to bluntly ask for the tip, And I am not going to beg or prod. I do set a tip goal of 500; not sure what's going to happen anyway (there's an attitude I need to correct). I just feel weird with stuff like "show me your hole" (which I don't have a problem doing) but then I should refer them to the tip menu (which I don't have) and they don't get to see the hole. I can't guarantee a cum show since I can't always cum. I am always hard so that's not a problem. And my dick is uncut, a bit larger than standard, with a nice bend to the left that people get into. I think I got the right parts and pieces to be somewhat successful at this game and could use a couple of good pointers. Any assistance you can give is welcomed. You all seem like a great bunch of folk and I hope that I'll be accepted into you fold.

I will devour anything you can teach me.

The fact of the matter is people won't tip if they don't have to. If they can see something for free why would they tip? Of course some of us think differently, but Chaturbate isn't the kind of site where you want to rely on few individuals to make money since most people aren't big spenders. I would say set a tip menu so that people will have the expectation that you do things for tips, and limit what you do/show for free so you can build that expectation.

I believe one of the big differences between male and female cam models is a lot of guys have this idea that male models cam because they find some pleasure in it, and not as a way to make money, and you will notice this quite a bit based on some of the comments you will get. There is not a day on cam that goes by where I don't get multiple comments from some guy who has the idea that I'm just some cool guy looking to exchange contact info with other guys to swap dick pics. Part of this is probably because of the amount of exhibitionist on the site, but I think it also speaks to society in general. I don't believe guys have any difficulty believing that female models do what they do for money,

Prince, thanks for the reply. I know in my gut what you are saying about the tip menu is correct. I'm going to do it; I just have to figure out what it will be. I'll give it a shot and see if it increases my tokens. Thanks again.

gr8 explanation on the tip menu, hadn't ever thought of it that way, but indeed my public tips have raised a lot after I've implemented one (Tip Menu)

I let my tip menu just develop from the most frequent requests. It's super basic and only has a few items on it, Flex, Show Ass, you know the drill. It's really just there so that when it comes up, they can be referred to it.

A lot of people look down on it, but the single most powerful thing you can do to encourage tipping is to get a tip activated toy. The thing that separates camming from porn is interactivity. Anyone can go to Pornhub, Xvideos, or any other place and watch someone jerk off any time they want to for free. Someone watching a cam performance is doing so because they want that added element of feedback from the performer. Again, a lot of people look down on it, but a Lovense is the easiest way to create that feedback.

I dropped using goals within a couple months of starting camming. You live by the goal, you die by the goal. Once you hit it, tipping is done. So it creates a floor for tips, but also a ceiling. Tip menu, same thing, and it's mostly just there as a formality. With a toy, they can just keep tipping to get that reaction out of you, and if you perform just right, they will really feel connected to the show.

The sad fact is, most viewers are anonymous or grey. They came with no intention of ever tipping. The ones that do have tokens, they're saving them for the right performer, the one that they get the most back from. There are all sorts of creative ways to structure your show and encourage tipping, but the toy will always be #1, especially for us solo males.

Thanks Primal. I looked early this AM and there were over 3000 users looking at guys who were tagged with a toy. It was the highest number on the tags. Looks like you nailed this, at least for me and what I need to do. For me, I can't sell flexing (well, IDK, maybe someone will want to see my non-muscular biceps) and I think that's part of my aversion to the menu. I'm still working on the confidence that would let me think someone will pay for stuff So, it looks like it's time to try the toy. I've never really been into bottoming, but I don't have any problem putting something in my bum so I don't have to get over that hurdle. Now it's deciding which one. I'll research that. From what I've seen while watching other guys most seem to have the pink deal (Lush?) that sticks out like a tail. I've always thought it looked kind of silly but I can get beyond that real quick. Have any of you tried the butt-plug looking deal? I used butt-plugs in the past so that would be a non-issue for me but I wonder how many guys are looking for the pink tail to know you are really using something? I've seen a couple of guys with the black base of the plug showing so I know some guys are using them. Also, when reviewing the Lush and Hush on the Lovenes website, they both said they were "sound activated". Do they only respond to sound? I'm doing this on the lowdown so if strange sounds start coming from my room my SO is going to start to wonder.......

Thanks so very much for your support in all of this. What I see here on ACF is something that most viewers will never see; that the people who broadcast are "real" and great and nice people. You guys are so appreciated by me.

Here's a quick edit: Those of you who I could find on CB I've marked as Follow and I'll be popping into your rooms if I see you online. You men are the Masters in my book.

If you're hiding it from your SO, maybe selling clips on sites or nudes on twitter would be better.

CB's tips are loud. I think there is a way to sync the toy to CB directly and thus you could mute the audio... but I'm not sure, better ask someone who uses the toys.

Second the no goal thing, had my highest earning day when I didnt have goals set because there was no end to the show.
Has anyone tried a tip activated cock ring?
As far as I know theres no tip activated cock ring, I have used the edge in that sort of way though, just to change things up, it works pretty well, ssome people are into it, some people dont understand that using something in the way it wasnt designed to be used can still be fun.

The lush (The pink toy) isnt really designed for anal use, the hush (the butt plug) I found was great but mine broke after a couple of months. Now I have the prostate massager (the edge) because of the dual motors in it, it's more intense than the edge but it's not as comfortable to ware for long periods of time as the hush was which was why I started looking at other ways I can use it.

The lovense toys will link to a chrome extension that then links to an app on your phone (or pc if you buy the bluetooth adapter) so that's what is going to make it vibrate, it can be done through sound as well but it's not as reliable as using the extention.

There is a mode that allows you to have it vibrate to music, but you wouldn't use that while on cam. You can set it up to be activated by tips and in the settings menu on CB you can lower the tip volume or silence it completely.
