Though I am fairly sure that at this point no one would be paying to me in or out of my skivvies I would not do it.

Financially I could do much better with my time, I find the current fat web girl scene to be working against size acceptance in general (unintentionally), and I could not be anyone's pretend anything for money.

I have shot for a few sites and a magazine. I do not have the hustle ambition that the more successful (not necessarily the most popular) girls do... some of them cam for 10+ hours a day and escort as well... Even though I have worked in nearly all areas of the sex industry at one point I don't have the energy to juggle them all at once. I find it is like being a drug dealer... yes the money is good but if you average it out to the number of hours you spend (advertising, shooting,shopping for clothes,camming,editing pix,posting composites... etc)...you end up making about minimum wage. If all I had to do was show up and be pretty I would still be in it... not the case.that is the smallest part really.
Being a Pro-Dom works for me.. I feel like i can balance it but producing media is just too tedious and time consuming


True.

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).
thats another reason i wouldn't as well. certain kinds of nudity are fine for the fields i'm interested in but paysite stuff definitely wouldn't pass muster. i wouldn't want to risk so much for something that pays so little either.

and it actually helped a lot while I was still finishing high school because I wasn't working a regular job. .
I just thought of a great name for a company--Barely Legal But Really Fat. I can't imagine it not being an amazing success. I should go register the DNS right now!

I haven't been asked, nor would I say yes if I were. Like Super, the idea doesn't appeal to me. My reasons: My ass isn't for sale*. One look at a webmodel wearing a curly tail and pig nose did me in. When you can't tell the difference between the paysite board and an anti-fat site, I'm out.

*though, it can sometimes be rented.

oh yeah, that playing into prejudice to be subversive, if that, is definitely not for me either. i understand what a lot of people are doing but i'm really tired of a fat woman's sexuality being just another fat joke.

I have thought about it for a good while, but in the long run, I felt it was best not to make such a permanent decision. Once those pictures are submitted to the website, they now become the website's property (understandable, but not something I would want). I would not mind seductive pictures of myself, so long as they were done on my own time. No offense, but I feel the strict timelines to keep up with fresh content lulls the sex appeal of the pictures. Every (figuratively) paysite girl does a shower shoot. Every paysite girl does a "eat a little debbie cake" shoot. Every paysite girl does a "fatty gets half naked outside" shoot. The topics are old, borrowed, and overplayed.

A friend of mine is a web model & she did a miss piggy shoot with Kermit. I though it was cute. *shrugs*

Ultimaltely everyone's level of comfort is different. I wouldn't have the patience to deal with the "fans".

I might do it if I were bored. I have to admit that extra money is enticing.

I am a webmodel. Ive modeld for atleast a half dozen sites or more. I enjoy what I do. However there are some things that I will not do. I mostly work with a small group of friends or my submissives. I see alot of girls workin for multi girl sites while they sign their rights away to their work instead of investin in their self and building their own foundation

I only do things I enjoy doin and thats whatmakes it fun and worth it for me. Not to mention the extra money helps!

You know, the more pictures I post on here, the more I wonder what it'd be like to do it "properly." But I'm not into the gaining/feeding angle, and that seems to be what's popular, so I guess I won't go that way.

I would do one of those little plumpers sites like Big Tits and Round Asses but I'm too shy about showing everything. Someone might find me out.

I gave it a try, but decided it wasn't for me after a few realizations.

- Sexual attention outside my committed relationships doesn't make me feel feminine, desireable, empowered, etc... it makes me feel yucky.

- I don't measure up physically. I'm too fat for the BBW niche, and not fat enough for the SSBBW niche. And there isn't anything remarkable enough about my body to cater to a specialty niche.

- Doing it within my comfort zone (as far as how much of my body I show, what fantasies I feel good about catering to, and the amount of control I want to have over my content) just isn't profitable enough.

- The sex industry prejudice factor. I live in a "right to work" state. My husband's employer has very conservative values. If I were "outed" as a porn/fetish model at his office, he would probably lose his job. Which pays our bills and also provides medical insurance. It's just too much to risk.

Me being slacker me I'd probably try web modeling if I had someone else to take the pictures or work the video camera. I'm positive I could not keep a straight face while doing a video saying how much I love to gain or laying in a bathtub covered with candy so that's out the window. Of course I also couldn't take all my clothes off, not because of real life moral clauses but simply because I'm shy and being vulnerable like that in the wild and woolly world wide web is a bit more evolved than I'm ready to be.

Brava to those ladies (and men) who do it, for sure. :)

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've wondered about that, too, but I'm guessing (I could be wrong) that, while FAs might admire the beauty of a tastefully done nude, it wouldn't stimulate them enough as wank fodder to fork over the cash and subscribe to a paysite. It's pretty obvious that there's a limited set of fat girl activities they're interested in, as evidenced by the fact that 99% of the paysites advertised here offer virtually identical content.

yeah, this!!

i was approached by a couple of sites, and i made some attempts at doing sets. but i got around 10 (usable) pictures in and got bored, or annoyed at my face in the picture. it takes a lot of time and effort to capture good enough pictures on your own when you're not good at it or used to doing it.

despite this, when ive got my act together i do still want to do it, mainly because i NEED the money.. i don't know how much i'd earn but any is better than none. i don't know which site to apply for either :/

but, another thing that worries me is getting found out... if anyone i knew saw or found out and showed my family/friends, i don't even wanna think about what they'd say. also, a few of my close male friends have a tendency to find porn online which they find 'funny' or not 'normal' (for example fetish related stuff) and show it to each other for jokes (yeah, they're that immature lol), if any of them stumbled across me somewhere i think i might die.

I love my job, It pays decent enough...It offers me flexibility with my schedule so I can still spend time with my family and have a life outside of work. It does make me feel feminine and sexy, most of the time. I am my own boss, basically. I have been doing this job for 6 or 7 years... The downsides: 1) Some girls in the industry can be very catty, although I have met some VERY AMAZING PEOPLE... 2) I get burnt out. I am 30 now, and feeling ready to move on with my life and do something new. Some days I just don't feel like putting on make-up and having a camera pointed at me. 3) if you want to make money, it is not always about doing what YOU like to do and you do have to cater to some of the fantasies of your audience. 4) The industry has become oversaturated with new models and amateur sites, and it is harder to make good money than it once was. That being said, if you work your business right (promote your site, do Clips4Sale, webcam) it can still be very lucrative. 4) If you ever want to lose weight, this is NOT the industry for you. Fatness is not only encourage but REQUIRED... Face it, if a guy wanted to see a thin girl, he wouldn't have subscribed to me. LOL

EVEN with all of the downsides it is by FAR the BEST job I have ever had. I have made some great friends, and even met my husband due to it. My life is vastly improved by having had this experience, and when I finally do retire, It will be a bittersweet goodbye. But it is NOT for everyone.

it was great meeting you in Orlando. you are really very cute and pretty. some of my friends and i were discussing how catty people seemed toward you when you seemed very kind and friendly to us. i'm so glad you're doing well. i wish more people had your spirit about it. i think you have a life, a real one, and thats what makes things work for you. a toast to whatever future you choose young lady!

Well if my husband was ok with it..
and i didnt have to do porn well then yea i think it would be kind of awesome. how is it different than modeling any other way?
i mean even in mainstream modeling you do sometimes take off all of your clothes. I think i would love it if it was in a certain context.:p
