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!
Quoted for truth.

I would crash and burn trying to be a web model as both black and an apple.

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?
No.

I made that decision years ago, after my Dimensions print mag cover and feature, when I was approached by a number of magazines and websites.

For one thing, my son was a teen and I couldn't do that to him... Having his friends maybe find out and shame him. Second, I grew up with more guy friends than girl friends, I like guys; and often, because of the daily onslaught of clueless and rude masturbatory idiots, many women in the porn industry end up disliking men. Lastly, I just had no desire to be part of the machine that porn is, beyond my contribution via Dimensions, and that was just for my own purposes. So once was enough. :)

I've thought about it, but only because I've been asked to do it... and I almost did. Do I regret it? Yeah, sometimes because I bet it would've been fun.. but I just don't think I would have ever been 100% comfortable with it. :(

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
Adult web modelling is porn ;)

Just because you're not performing hardcore sex acts, you're still putting up photos and videos online for guys to jerk to and making money from doing so.

There's no shame in it though.

I had thought about it in the past, when I was heavier, and needed extra money. I had contacted one of the sites, but never did anything past that.

I don't think I was ever fat enough to be successful, and actually make something from it. And the more I thought about it - I really didn't want to put myself out there like that, and run the risk of the pictures being stolen and put up elsewhere and made fun of or whatever.

Besides with what sells, and what I've seen posted here, I don't think it would be something I'd feel comfortable doing.

Just wanted to say - I think there's some level of misconception about what sells and doesn't and it's not nearly as simple as big=better. There are a lot of factors about who is and isn't a good candidate and it has to do with all of that, not just scale numbers. Just don't like the idea that people might feel "eh, not looking for me" because of that component alone.


This isn't the purpose of the thread, but I really just wanted to put that out there.

wishing I were someplace else...
I modeled for a multi-girl site once upon a time. I am both proud and regretful of that decision. Porn (not unlike beauty, sexuality and taste) is a subjective term. I didn’t consider what I did to be porn. I don’t consider most of what we see on the Paysite board here to be porn either. However, that is my definition. I do agree, though, that there should be no shame assigned to porn…it serves a purpose and makes people happy. I’ve said it elsewhere, but it bears repeating…my story is neither an endorsement nor an indictment of the paysite models or industry.

I am regretful of my decision to shed my clothes because of some of the interactions I had during my stint as a model. Therefore, I would caution anyone who is considering doing it, to do their research, ask around and pay special attention to any red flags you may encounter. If you don’t trust your own judgment, don’t do it. However, if you have the right mindset and can invest the time and energy into it, modeling can be fun and rewarding.

I worry about my employer and/or coworkers finding out…I worry in the back of my mind that one of my husband’s clients or potential clients could find out and not understand or be as open-minded as I would like. I worry about it more than he does, however, so go figure.

In hindsight, I am sure I took the whole “confidence-fake it until you make it” theory to the extreme. I wasn’t completely confident, but I figured if I had the brass ovaries to strap on a thong and disrobe in front of lights and a camera for all the world (or at least those who paid the $14.95 subscription price to the site or viewed the preview pics here and at other pic posting forums) than I was doing pretty darned good. Moreover, let’s be honest, the validation of positive feedback never hurts. However, that validation can create a bill that can come due far after the validation has faded away.

Therefore, like I said earlier I am proud and remorseful. I have incredible respect and downright admiration for the women who do model with grace and class. For me, however, while I originally sought validation and empowerment through taking my clothes off, I got more validation and empowerment by putting them back on and going on with my life.

I do sometimes think that the number of women who don't have one here will one day be smaller than the number who do. :D OK, so it just seems that way at times.

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.
Not so true, I'm not that much into feederism and frankly I like to see less of it from the paysite girls. One of the biggest myths when it comes to FAs is that we are all turned on by feederism porn which is so not true, for example I don't like eating videos cause they make me hungry lol. What I honestly like to see more of is some more cosplay. I think the reason why you see so many girls doing pretty much the same things isn't as much to do with their fans pre-say as much as it's easier to do eating sets then what I suggested, granted it's still a bit of both, I'm to go off topic with the thread people but I just wanted to throw in my two cents here:).

wanna bet? as a woman who is online in the community i can't tell you how many people approach who are feeders or have the interest. i think because of how that is often taken by a lot of BBWs who are not webmodels they provide a very hefty market for the industry because the models often do things most other BBWs do not want to do because its their job and are getting paid. men always want to pay for the things that most women don't want to do. they have to.

i know men in their 50s who have been looking for an honest to goodness feedee their entire lives and haven't really found one. so often they don't mind finding a fantasy and paying for it . on the other hand, guys who don't need a feedee find it much easier to find a partner who'll have mutual interests without paying. so yeah, i'd say the demand for pay for play would be bigger for feeders since there are plenty of big beautiful sexual women out there that guys who are not feeders wouldn't have to pay to see.

i'll say it again, if you aren't a BBW yourself you don't have a clue.

Once again, with feeling:

No all FAs are feeders. Not all feeders are FAs.

It would not astonish me -- pay-per-view Facebook, anyone?
Consider what their (and Google"s) basic business models are -- customers pay for those services by selling their privacy.

This is just an extreme example of the same sort of thing, but on a smaller scale and to a greater extent.

Well, to the degree it isn't theatre, anyhow.

First off why does it feel like I'm being a attacked here for sharing my own personal preference? I think you've tacken what I've said out of context SuperO, I never said feederism porn isn't the biggest seller just that not every guy is into it and that it's fairly easier to make which is why some girls see the apeal.

let me clarify my point for you. i am well aware that all if not most FAs are probably not feeders. and i'll also add that many guys who like fat women don't consider themselves FAs anyway. as i said, my point was that many BBWs actually love playing around, even with things like cosplay too, in private and even in public to a limited degree. so guys don't have to pay for that. but the feeding situation is very different because generally speaking most fat women you meet want nothing to do with it so those guys who are feeders actually HAVE to pay more often.

people who are engaging other kinds of sexuality are doing it outside of the market place more often on a mutually satisfying level. so, no need to pay at all anymore. that's an issue all of the porn world has to contend with. as people find that kind of sexual fulfillment on their own porn itself has to be more extreme to attract an audience. they have to provide a product not available just anywhere for free. its hard for anyone to compete with free. most fat women don't want to be seen weighed and measured, called piggy and chug down cake batter shakes for anyone for their own self fulfillment.

that doesn't negate people who have that as their own fetish, but needless to say its not the focus of every fat person or every person who finds fat people attractive. all i'm saying is that the for pay porn industry makes product for the people they still have left. nobody is going to pay for cosplay when all they have to do is download pix from a bash somewhere or share pix with online friends who are into taking costume pix and like to be looked at.

i can't do anything about the fact that you feel attacked. its your interpretation and your problem. i'm tired of couching my words for people who are overly and improperly sensitive about who they're attracted to.

Punk, if you see what supero wrote as an attack, you're a very sensitive guy. If you want immunity from fat women's opinions, why not go over to the FA forum, where you'll be protected, instead of this forum, where fat women should be able to talk without guys crying "attack" just because you chose to interpret supero's words as an attack, which they were clearly not.

And you could be right, Mossy.

You came into the bbw forum to post off-topic ( your words ) and to tell us what you prefer in a paysite. Take your personal preferences over to the fa forum.
" Would You ( meaning fat women ) Be A Web Model ". If you don't want to talk about whether or not you would charge money for pictures, then why not just keep moving. And...yes...I reported the post.

I personally wouldn't do it, aside from the major problems it could cause my career, I just can't imagine posting any photos online I would be embarrassed for my mother to see. I respect those who are able to make a successful business out of it, but in my case it would prob. bite me in the butt.
