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 :doh:

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 :p 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.

I counter with one of my favorite quotes, take it how you will:
i understand what you're saying and i fully support those who do sell. i know a whole lot of them view it as mainly a way to progress the idea that fat women are beautiful--and it does. i think it really helps other women to see the beauty in themselves. its just that for me personally, i don't care for the kind of male audience it brings. i don't want anything to do with guys on that level because i know the kind of attitude it brings out for many and i don't want to end up hating them for it. i know i would lose respect for them if i had to deal with them on that level all of the time.

I was a Big Cutie for about a year but decided to stop over the summer for personal reasons. From time to time I consider going back into it but now that I've been on both sides of the fence, I don't think it's really for me anymore.

For one, the money wasn't worth it. It wasn't bad really.. and it actually helped a lot while I was still finishing high school because I wasn't working a regular job. I wasn't very successful because of two main things - I have a run of the mill body.. I look like your average fat girl. The other thing is that I wasn't willing to actively gain weight for my site. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm currently trying to work out more and eat better which has caused me to lose and I certainly don't think that'd be compatible with being a paysite model. As is, I've had guys tell me they can tell I've lost weight since I stopped modeling and I've only lost about 25 pounds. The other problem is that despite my genuine interest in feederism, I was a terrible actress. It felt too .. personal for me. I could eat on camera but beyond that, I couldn't voice any of my fantasies .. I guess I just would feel weird having random guys know all of my desires. So, I didn't cater to that market either. I didn't cater to ANY market in particular and that hurt my success. Also, I agree with whoever (indy? I think) said that there's a lot of site ripping and such.. paysite girls don't make a lot to begin with and then there's a ton of guys who just do site rips or share passwords or whatever. It's frustrating, but not really surprising. Things are pretty easy to steal on the internet.. especially with entire forums (chan) dedicated to file sharing and such. It's just an unfortunate reality of going into the business.. lots of people are not going to pay for your stuff.

Secondly, I think the problem for me is that I never really found the paysite format to be appealing as a customer. I've never been a huge fan of soft core stuff.. it just doesn't really do it for me. So, I guess I felt that disconnect when trying to model.. I didn't really feel sexy, I didn't feel that my 'work' was sexy, so it was hard for me to act sexy.. if that makes sense. It became tiring really quickly.

I'm glad BC & Heather gave me the opportunity.. I think BC is THE best paysite modeling site out there.. it just wasn't really my thing.

I've thought about doing cam or clips4sale stuff because I hear there's higher revenue in both. I've done a tiny bit of cam stuff and I liked it a lot more.. I could do it whenever I felt like (as opposed to having deadlines) and it was a lot more general flirtatiousness and showing off .. no outfits, themes, titles or poses.

The other thing I would be super interested in is doing something more artistic along the lines of Suicide Girls. I'm not sure there really is a market for it though. I also don't have the resources (a better camera, a studio or studio-esque room to shoot & a photographer who knows what they're doing) but if it was possible, I'd be all over it.

I would do it as I'd really love a second income and I think it would be fun. But like others have already said, I'm pretty run-of-the-mill in the face AND in the ass, ha, so I compare let alone one-up any of the girls in the biz now.

If only shelf asses could be financed.

ETA: It's also total professional suicide, but I THINK I'd be willing to risk it if it was lucrative enough. But again, this is nice and all, but not a money maker. People like me for my wit. :D

I think it would be fun, I love taking nudes but doubt that anyone would pay to see them. I’m just not fat enough to actually make money being a web model.

I've been asked to do this and it has also been suggested by others. At first I didn't know what a "pay site" model was. I'm 5'10" so I thought they were asking me to do, you know, regular modeling. I was kinda shocked when I actually saw some of these sites for the first time.

I mean, I'm not shy about tastefully done partial or total nudity, but there is NO WAY I would ever do hardcore porn.

I've thought about doing the lighter stuff, but decided not to at this time because I haven't completely decided what I want to do with my future. There is a career field I may enter and, well, these pictures are forever. Once you're on the internet, there is no going back and taking it down.

What about "pin-up" sites that don't contain nudity? Like Jenna VonDell's.

I joined her site for a month for research to see how it was done and was surprised to see that she does not expose her breasts or crotch in any of her pictures or videos.
They are sexy, but classy. However, I wonder how many subscribers she has.

I might consider doing a site like hers. :)

i like things like that too. she's not a BBW but i like Dita Von Teese. i could really see a BBW doing that kind of work. i don't think there is enough just plain glamour stuff of big girls. i'd like to see more things reliant on beauty rather than the weigh in, how big i am pix, eating sets or explicit porn. i wonder why absolutely no one is going for BBW erotica at all since the very basis for admiration lends itself to that very well. the way that some FAs lovingly describe various aspect of a woman's body is like a road map to some fantastic erotica. i just don't understand why the websites seem to run from the beauty/erotica thing so much. but i guess i'm assessing that need as a woman and not as a guy. maybe its the hunger for the lack of good fashion/beauty magazines for and about fat women driving my opinion?

i have an idea about the need for BBWs to be bigger as some women here expressed. i think the websites aim at feeders and other people who like extremes because they can be sure of that market. there are a lot of men who prefer smaller BBWs, but those are guys who also tend to like smaller women as well. i actually feel that BBW websites are a victim of fat prejudice too because they don't often seem to think they can attract an audience of men who appreciate women of all sizes. i think they are making a mistake of concentrating just on the people who like the extreme. they have cut down their audience to just a few guys. by broadening their audience and model size they could probably get more money for their girls and expose men who wouldn't ordinarily think about it to the bodies of women larger than they would ordinarily consider. what better way too to show that women of all sizes are equally beautiful than by showing them all?

I think real burlesque like Dita von Teese is something I could really get into.

Would I be a Web model? At my "advanced" age, oh hell why not ...

How much do I have to pay?
LMAO! oh Pear320, this made me laugh more then it should have

I too have been approached, and highly encouraged by an ex to pose...but I keep having a check in my self about doing it. My momma taught me that if something doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't right. So, I have decided to not do it, but I am willing to do so out of sheer desperation. I am an SSBBW and not the fugliest one either, so I'm sure I would make enough...but my personal moral convictions are a bitch. Not to mention that I have a 6 yr old daughter who just so happens to idolize and worship the ground I walk on....I would hate for her to see them in 15 or 20 years. The last thing I want is her to think that selling risque pictures of herself is ok. Thats not how I was raised, and thats not how I'm raising her. With that being said, definitely not knocking anyone who is, has, or will do it. Everyone has walked a different path in their life and we have all learned different lessons along the way. There is no judgement here, I have actually met some rather nice play-site models, and I have met some who are not so...lovely. When the sun sets, you are the one who has to lay your head down at night, so as long as the decisions you make today, you are still going to be ok with them tomorrow...then go for it, but when in doubt...do without.

I wouldn't do it. Hey, everything ain't for everybody. I work in a pretty conservative field so having a site is just out of the question. Also, in the future I plan to take on more leadership roles and it's just not something I want to haunt me or come up later on. But even if I wasn't in that particular field, the constant updating, photo shoots, etc would probably start to get on my nerves or wear me out. lol Also, most of the sites I've seen really aren't my speed/aesthetic but totally respect the women who do it.

I'm also in the camp where it's unthinkable given my career field.

But I don't think I'd do it anyway. While I appreciate the idea of it in theory and it can be a kind of fun and sexy thought (a friend and I often joke about funny ideas for "my paysite"), I think deep down I kind of like the idea that the only people who get to see my naked body are people who truly know me and care about me - that experiencing the vulnerability of my nakedness is reserved for people who have earned the right to that level of intimacy (and me for them).

Mcbeth, that's the second answer I give when I explain why I don't do it. :) Fully agree.

Yeah, I do worry about the career aspect of it all.. I hope by the time I'm doing something professional my photos have more or less faded into oblivion.. still not a guarantee but hey, what can you do.
