Default Would You Be A Web Model?

okay, so now you're online. you post pix sometimes. maybe you even have a few professionally done glamour shots. you adore the compliments and expressing yourself as the gorgeous fat woman you truly are. naturally you get invitations to be a web model. could you ever see yourself being one? why or why not?

Personally I would say no. If I ever did anything like web modeling I would expect to make a decent amount of cash but the sad reality is that most models simply don't. I gave this a whole lot of thought when I first became involved in the fat community and observing fat porn has led me to certain conclusions:
  • The most successful models are either pears or hourglasses
  • Fetish sells - and the biggest seller is feeding and feederism
  • The softcore porn game is dominated by male people who tend to want to look at fairly young, extremely fat, white girls
  • Most black models tend to do hard core porn and belong mostly to multi-girl sites.
This list is based entirely on my observations - I could be completely wrong - but for me it made the web modeling thing a huge no-no.

Also the models I enjoy best are the ones who care about what they're putting out there. Modeling is crazy demanding in terms of time and to do well you have to give it your best. The sites I have joined and keep going back to are the ones where the girls look like they're having a blast and looking fabulously fat while doing it. I'm also pretty sure you've got to have a fairly high level of tolerance for idiot customers - or a really amazing sense of humour!

I tried it...never made anything substantial at all but I also wasn't willing to do any hardcore stuff or a lot of the fetish things. The industry is so saturated now that unless you REALLY stand out with something special you won't make the $$$ that would make it worth it.

I havent been approached doubt I would be

for me the pics I have on dimms are as far as I go nudity and such wise I am not willing to put a full nakkey pic of me out onto the internet plus I just dont think I would be good at it and I have enough trouble with the creepy men on dating sites I dont think I could handle it on a webmodel scale

I think its a matter of to each their own if it is something your passionate about then go for it

I think if you are going to do it, you have to do it well.

Models like Ivy and Violet, Kellie Kay, Ginger and Sasha do it with style. They always wear cute clothes, and produce high quality and stylish photo sets.

Like all adult sites if it is done in a sloppy manner with no consideration of personal presentation etc, it does not look good.

Having said that, my opinion is probably that of a female observer.

I guess these things are not high on the list of priorities for a male consumer of the product.

I would enjoy pin-up modelling and the styling tasks that come with it, but seeing as I'm not into catering to gaining fetishes and not tremendously large, it's unlikely I'd have a serious opportunity to model for the fat-interested community. Corset and other selected fetish modelling, sure.

Nope. I wouldn't want anyone I knew to see me half naked, and I really can't be bothered to keep up with all the shaving! lol

I could probably play the fetish angle quite well and make some cash but I don't think it would be enough to make me do it.

Plus, I think the days of any old fat person becoming a paysite model are gone. You need need to be something special to make the serious money and I am not.

I don't think I could do it. I don't mind being appreciated, but I think that level of attention and exposure would make me feel uncomfortable.

I've been approached by a couple of places. As much as I admire the patience and talent most of these ladies have, I worked hard and went to school so I could get paid to write. That was my dream. I would love to do both, but unfortunately, the industry I am in now would have zero acceptance for this as a second job for me. So I can't risk something that is so important to me for a little extra money, especially since the income is typically less than what I make at my job now.

I've been approached about it since before I was legally of age to do it. I've also though about it. A lot. But I don't see myself being one. I don't have the confidence in my appearance while naked or nearly naked to actually pull off the gig. And I'm more than sure it would show in images that I'm not confident when my clothes are off.

If it wasn't for my confidence level when it comes to nekkidness, I would definitely at least give it a shot.

Even back in the day...never. I would never have found it appealing for a number of reasons. When I used to post a few more provocative pictures ( and if I do it again, I would feel the same ), I put it out there because it was a novelty - I did it for me - and in a very distant and floaty third place, I put it out there for others.
To ' work ' at something like that would, for me, be soul-sucking. To know I had to come up with new spins and would have to, if I wanted more money, be so thankful ( even pretending to be...and while I could be a fantastic actor, there isn't enough bleach for my brain when it comes to some things ) for so many total ick comments and people?...horrible, horrible, thought. I have worked many retail jobs, and while I didn't always give a shit if somebody had a nice day, I wasn't giving up much of anything.
Even if people snagged any picture I put out here, I didn't have to pay any price that for me would take away any of the positive reasons that are attached when I pull the trigger on a decision like sharing myself in that way.
I will leave it at that, as there are way too many things I want to say about it.

I pretty much agree with all of this.

I was a plus-size model for three years and did take my clothes off back stage at shows and working with designers and photographers but for me it was more about fashion and showing that fat was beautiful in such an unforgiving field, at least as it was ten years ago. Although one can argue that any kind of modeling can be sexual and is empowering and although I've been approached several times, that sharp sexual focus is not for me.

When I first joined the BBW community men often suggested that I should be a model. Every once in a while I still get that comment. I find it to be a very, very flattering compliment. That being said, no one who runs a site or produces BBW web models has ever asked me to work for them. If they did I would be highly flattered.

Even though I've thought about it once or twice I don't think I'm the type who could pull it off. For one thing I'm very shy. If I take a daring picture I take it of myself. There are a few I have dared to share but most of the time they stay hidden in my "Look At Your Own Risk" file which has grown quite dusty. To be a web model I would need to be braver and more confident than I am. I would also need a photographer. Being that I'm so shy if I posed for someone else would be a session in blushing and manic giggles...Not attractive.

Even if shyness and lacking confidence wasn't an issue I couldn't be a BBW web model anyway. I'm a preschool teacher and Miss Nancy's bum should not be floating randomly around the internet.

No way I could ever do it its just not me at all.
I did have a guy from England want to do a profile for an issue dealing with purposeful weight gain but I declined the offer feeling I would end up being ridiculed and worse hounded to death by creepy people.

I don't think that makes you bitter but it would make anyone who takes the risk of opening themselves up like that a bit angry. To bare yourself for others (and I don't mean just getting naked) takes courage. To be encourage to do so and then to be let down by the same people would not only be disappointing but hurtful. I don't blame you for being a bit mad.

I remember once that while I was at my very first BBW mini bash type event a man pulled me aside in the elevator and said, "You're beautiful. You should be a model. I'm a photographer. I'll take your pictures if you want." I was completely and totally flattered...and extremely naive. When I told my friend about it she said that it happens a lot and if you want to be a model you have to know who to talk to. I was still flattered but the images flitting through my head of being a world famous BBW supermodel were dashed. Ah well, I'm too short to be the fat Heidi Klum anyway.

i take all of my own personal pix too. i like the control. i'd have to be very comfy for someone else to take a good photo of me. with the combo of someone i'm not relaxed with and a flash in my eyes i tend to look like a scared kitty when someone else takes my photo.


i love the idea of taking photos that people enjoy but not the idea of somehow being "for sale"

Nope,

The idea of having a stranger fapping off over a pic of my naked body creeps me out.

I've thought about it, even considered it from time to time but the idea of those pictures turning up in the wrong hands definitely freaks me out. I think I would like it but I wouldn't exactly want my friends or family to see sexy, naked pics of me.

Also, because I'm planning on being a teacher it'd be my worst nightmare to have one of my students go "hey ms. M look what we found... now give us all A's and unlimited jolly ranchers!" Or even worse, a parent or someone in administration

My other qualm about web modeling is I feel you have to gain to be really really successful. I find gaining to be hot but I personally wouldn't want to get to the size you need to be to make money. I'm pretty happy where I am right now and I feel like viewers would get bored with a model who wasn't willing to grow. Maybe there is an interest for fat women who aren't willing to grow (I wouldn't know as I'm not well versed in the porn industry but I do wander over to the paysite board from time to time) but I have yet to see it. I also think even if I didn't intend on gaining originally, all that positive attention would temp me to the cookie jar wayyy too often (and I'm a big visitor as it is )

I think some models say they want to gain because that is what their audience wants to hear.
They may not actually really want to in real life.

I'm pretty sure just about every woman who's ever been on a fat friendly site has been told she should model The thing with modeling is that you can't just be another pretty face or a hot fat girl. There are too many hot fat girls out there for that to be a differentiator. I love to take my own pictures - and I love being naked in my pics. Taking nude pictures of myself was a crucial part of my fat journey and I still love the sense of control and the power I feel when I take the pictures and, if I do decide to post them, I thoroughly enjoy the responses I get. But, like Mossy, if I had to do it for paying customers the fun would very quickly be leeched out of it.
