PEOPLE HATE THAT, AND
ITS A BIG TURN OFF FOR THEM (don’t be like want to go “Private”, I want to go
It shows people here that your all about the money, NOW
don’t get me wrong, we all know we are all here for the money, but they don’t
need to know that.
Seem genuinely interested in the clients! Ask fantasy
and fetish questions!
Should I use audio in free chat? If so and no one
talks really when there is a whole room full of people, Turn the audio off, go
on an audio strike until u cum, they might not like it, but they will get the
Tell them there's always Audio in “Private”.
Maybe put some tunes on, when the microphones not on,
and dance around.
Seduce the cam. A lot of girl’s and guys don’t even look at
the camera and they sit there and stare at them selves in the preview window.
Eye contact makes them feel more important to you, and it’s just a respect
Lighting is HUGE!

right places it can really go ALOT of good for the way u look on camera. Show

How can I see other models at work?
To see other models performing you will need to visit the
customer side of the site you are not able to use
your performer account log-in information to log into the customer side of the
site. You can visit as a free “grey” member or take advantage of the 120 free
credits with free registration offer to become a “white” member.
What happens when you get days that are slow?
Don't let it get you down! I would try a few shifts at night when I was
performing nights were always my best but you have to find a schedule that
really works for you.
Post a schedule… If you post a schedule, members
will know when you are on and hopefully visit you. Use your Bio, be sure to fill
it out so we can have a way to know something about you. Use your Diary in the
bio to keep members informed of schedule changes, vacations, anything you wish.
Use emails to add that personal touch after someone takes you private, to let
them know they are appreciated and wanted. Keep notes on members, it makes a
difference when a model remembers something about us, especially since we know
you see so many members each day.
It takes a while to develop a
clientele. You should develop your own style, but it would be a good thing to
not just “randomly” visit models, but visit the Top 20 and see why they are in
Top 20. “Most” models will welcome an incognito model in her room. You can
always “whisper” ( type / and then the models name ie. /penny) to them who you
are and that you wanted to see how they ran a room because you noticed they are
one of the top models. When you do visit models, however, please be respectful.
Do not let other members know you are also a model unless the host mentions it
herself. Do not flirt with the other members or attempt to 'poach' them. And
this should be obvious but it has happened: do not beg to see the host model's
body/clothing/whatever. She has enough beggars to deal with and in time you will
see for yourself how incredibly annoying it is. Also remember that the chat room
is run by the model hosting it and that people are in there to see and talk to
HER. Most models don't appreciate it when the members in their room start paying
more attention to one another - greetings and comments are fine as long as they
don't take over the entire room. She is, after all, trying to work. :-P Ask for
advice, through emails or the Model Forum. Your fellow models are very helpful.
I can tell you that MY top 3 models all have different styles in open. Of course
it is the body, or for me usually the face (eyes and smile), that catches a
person's eye, but it is the personality that makes a person want to return.
Do I need nice Pictures…
Post pics that are you.
Don’t put up pics just because you saw someone else post a similar one. A good
head shot for your bio pics is a must, a picture that showcases your smile and
eyes will catch attention. Members always ask to see feet, ass, legs, boobs,
tats or piercings (if you have them), so pics that you can display with some of
these will allow you to say, “See my bio pics”.
You have the ability to
“Ban”, “Ignore” or “Kick” troublesome visitors to your room. For Greys you can
do all 3. For Members (White or Gold) you can only ignore. You do these
functions with a right click of the mouse over the member. “Ignore” will allow
to basically “ignore” someone who won’t shut up, whether they are whispering or
typing in open. Ignore stops when they either log out and log back in, 24 hours
have passed or they go private. “Kick” will allow you to kick a grey from your
room. “Ban” will allow you to ban a grey member from the site. The Ban will last
24 hours, and you have to type a reason why you banned him or her. You can also
“ALERT” a monitor to an abusive member (white or gold) so they can be watched
and removed if necessary. You can Alert with a right click or Alert button.
Remember to post or have someone, who is a regular in your room, post the
abusive person in the Chat Timewasters - "The Good-guys strikes Back" thread.
Also report “Time Wasters” there. See post to understand who to post.
• You will find that there are many members who are pro
model and helpful.
• On the flip side, there are a few bad apples in the
bunch, but they are out numbered. Affliction (He starts out 'normally' and will go “Private”.
However, he assumes that one or two shows entitle him to ALL of a model's
attention and becomes insanely jealous when she talks to other members. If this
happens, you will find it incredibly disruptive and if you don't pay him enough
attention, he may well start sending you abusive emails as well as abusing you
in open chat. The best way to deal with someone like that is to keep logs of
this abuse and copies of the emails and then send them to your manager or studio
admin to have him 'permanently' removed from your chat room. Be aware, however,
that the 'permanent' ban is not actually permanent and he will come back
eventually. He certainly picked the right name for himself!)
• Remember to use the Model Forum as a resource and also to
ask questions which only fellow models can answer.
What is the etiquette when visiting another model’s
Ensure you do nothing that could be seen as trying to steal
customers from that room. The easiest way of doing that is to simply watch and
say nothing. If you wish to communicate then ensure that you have chosen a nick
name that does not resemble your model name. Do not say anything that implies
you are a model whilst in open chat. If you wish to tell the model that you are
there, and that you are a model too, then do so by whispering. (You will need to
be a registered member to do this however)
Remember that they are working. Ensure that you never
distract them from their work, demand any of their attention, or put any focus
How do I whisper when visiting a model?
Only registered members (whites and yellows) can whisper.
To whisper to them type a forward slash then the first few letters of THEIR
model name followed by a space and then your message. So to say hello to a model
called “Best Model” whilst in their room you would type:
When I came out of a “Private” show other people in the
room said they had seen it, did I give a free show, is there a bug?
Whenever you go into a private show when logged on as
standard, premiere or multi-user then an animated pair of curtains drops in
front of the camera feed window with words suggesting they start paying to join
the show. To tempt them even further all white and yellow members get to see a
very short glimpse of the camera feed every now and then. Approximately every
thirty seconds the curtains open to reveal a much smaller version of your camera
feed, this sneak peek lasts just a couple of seconds.
This helps to increase the number of voyeur minutes you get
as well as giving more chance of getting back-to-back privates.
How can I mute my microphone in free chat?
Hover your mouse pointer towards to bottom of your camera
preview window, a grey bar will appear, you can click the icon at the right of
this bar mute or un-mute your microphone feed.
My microphone is turned off but I can be heard in my
private shows. Why?
You can mute your microphone whilst in free open chat, but
as soon as a paid show starts your microphone will become live again. If you
really want to keep your sound off you will need to un-plug or turn of your
microphone at the source. Alternatively you can right click the preview window,
choose “settings”, click the small picture of the microphone and slide the
“record volume” slider all the way to the left. We do however suggest leaving
your volume on, customers do like to hear how excited they make you even if you
don’t talk to them.
Why is there an icon next to some customer’s names?
There are two possible icons. One will appear if the
customer has added any information to their profile. To view what they have
written double click the icon. The second icon appears if you have added any
personal notes about the customer.
How do I add notes about customers?
Double click the blank space to the left of their name in
your chat window, or if there is an icon double click that. You can also
right-click their name and select “notes and Bio” from the list. That will open
their bio window, in the bottom part of that window you can make notes that can
only be seen by you and will be accessible every time they enter your room.
Please note whatever you write cannot be seen by the
customer or other models.
How do I whisper to members?
You cannot whisper to anybody other than a monitor or your
studio, and then only if they are in the room.
To whisper type a forward slash followed by their name, a
space and then your message. For example:
/studio is my lighting okay
/monitor please help me deal with this annoying customer
You can whisper to members when you are in a semi-private
show by using the same method.
What is a fake show?
If you click the “fake” button whilst in free open chat it
will look to all members as though you have entered a paid show. All whites and
yellows will the short “curtain peeks” which can help you improve the atmosphere
in your room by showing what they will see in a paid show.
When you enter a fake show you will not be able to type any
more, a red message will appear saying you are in fake and there will be a
message in the status bar at the bottom of the window.
You can also earn if customers start paying to view the
fake show as a voyeur. If that happens you will be notified in the same was as
when you go into any other paid show. You still cannot type to these voyeurs and
they will have no way of knowing that you are pretending to be in a show. Should
all voyeurs leave you will return to the previous chat window, but you are still
in fake and cannot type or be seen properly until you click “fake” again to end
Why can’t I log in, why am I being thrown off mid-show,
why is my cam freezing and my sound going wrong?
All those problems are normally caused by connection
issues. In particular the upload speed. First of all try closing all the other
open programs you have running, including messenger programs. If that doesn’t
solve the problem check your bandwidth. We recommend that the minimum upload
speed should be 0.5Mb (or 1Mb for Premiere).
To test your bandwidth visit http://www.speedtest.net , and connect to a US
server to conduct the test. After the test you can click the option “copy to
direct link” to provide our technical team with the results should you need
If your bandwidth is too slow you will need to contact your ISP to upgrade the
What does approved music mean?
For copyright reasons you cannot broadcast and music that
we do not have the correct performance license for. Therefore you may only play
the royalty free music that we have provided.
You can download this free music by selecting the type you
like from the “free music” link on the left hand navigation menu. Each link will
download a zipped file with a collection of pieces of music. Please note these
are large files so may take a while to download. Once they are downloaded unzip
the file so that the contents can be played.
I’m having problems with my model-email, why can’t I see
Most problems with the email system are caused by browser
compatibility issues. In particular, Internet Explorer. As with the customer
side of the site we recommend using Mozilla’s FireFox browser to surf the site.
Switching to this free and easy to install browser generally fixes all issues
Google’s browser, “Chrome” is also a good alternative.
Why can’t I create threads or reply on the straight/gay
This is probably because you are logged onto the site using
a studio log on and not your performer logon. Studios cannot post in these
To post log out, and log
back in to using the same name and password that you use when you log onto the
performer application. Remembering to select “live performer” as the log-in
type. Now when you access the forums you will be able post easily.
What do I do with abusive, annoying or spamming people
in my room?
The first and easiest way to deal with these situations at
the start is to simply ignore them. Very often they get bored and leave. If
ignoring doesn’t work you have a number of options. With grey members you have
the ability to kick or ban them by right clicking on their name and selecting
the appropriate option. Always write an explanation for the action, as excessive
use of these features is investigated.
If you are having problems with registered (white or
yellow) members then press “Alert”, write an explanation of the problem and give
the member’s name so the monitors can take the required action. If a monitor
enters you room you can talk to them via whisper (/monitor your-message).
Sometimes you may not see the monitor take action and the member will simply
leave due to the action being taken.
Try to enlist other members to help you out, or ask them to
“save” you and you may get an extra “Private” out of it!
How can I block my local area from seeing me?
Contact your studio (or account executive). You can block
any US State or any worldwide country from seeing you. This doesn’t rely on what
the customer tells us, but utilizes the IP address of the computer, which shows
the physical location of the computer.
Please note: After requesting this it can take 48hrs to
activate. If you activate it for your local area you will not be able to see
your own profile. Finally this system is not fool proof, computer savvy
customers can find ways around the block.
I’ve blocked my area, how can I see my reviews?
The menu on the left of these pages has the link “reviews”
which will show all your reviews.
Why can’t I see my profile on any of the
Most likely because you have asked to block off your local
area! And as you live in your local area you can’t see yourself either! So that
you can read your reviews simply use the “Reviews” link in the left hand menu of
these model admin pages.
When I try to set my schedule it automatically puts me
in for six hour shifts, what am I doing wrong?
6 hours is the default shift length, if this isn’t suitable
for you speak to your studio manager who can change it for you. If you don’t
have a studio, or you have access to your own sub-studio account settings then
log on to the site using the studio user-name and password to change the
schedule default length.
Why can’t I delete a schedule entry?
Only studios can amend and dele schedule entries. So please
contact your studio.
How can I tell if somebody works for the
Network when they are
talking in my chatroom?
First of all remember that a Monitor or your studio owner
could be watching you at any time, so don’t break any rules.
VS staff will never ask you for a free show. Anybody that
has a username starting with a “vs_” for Example vs_brad is a staff member. No
customers are able to pick user names that start with vs_.
If your studio owner talks to you in your chat window the
text appears in Blue (the same as your text)
If a monitor talks their text appears in Red. No customers
can make their text appear in Red or Blue.
How do I enter a Promotion?
Some of the promotions have a special category and some
don’t. For those that don’t you simply need to log on and work during the promo
day(s) to be in with a chance of winning.
If there is a special category and you wish to take part
then once the promo starts (normally at midnight Eastern US Time) log onto your
bio admin page and change the
category to the new promo related entry, which starts with the word SPECIAL.
Note: your bio will automatically return to it’s previous
type when the promotion ends.
What is Premiere?
Premiere is our premium service. Our customers pay 50% more
to chat to premium models, and free (grey) guests are unable to visit the
premiere free chat rooms.
Our premiere models are chosen on a case by case basis.
There is no set criteria, but as this is a premium service we expect the models
to have the best equipment, with high internet speeds and with the right skills
to command the $9 per min price.
If you think you have what it takes to work in premiere
then contact your studio or account executive.
What is semi-private?
Semi-private is a type of log-on that allows you to have a
paid show with multiple customers at once. When you log-on in semi-”Private”
mode you do not enter free chat, nobody can see or chat with you until they
start paying. The rate is half that payable for standard.
During a semi-private show unlimited paying customers can
join the show, each can see, hear and type to you. You can whisper back to each
of them. If chatting using cam to cam you can see multiple cam feeds at once,
but you cannot hear them. They all can, however, hear your voice.
What is Video Chat?
Video-Chat is another site on our network, it is separate
to the main group of sites and offers free chat with multi-user paid shows at $3
per minute, so half the price of standard chat on the main network sites.
What is a conversion ratio and how important is it?
Your conversion ratio is the Number of minutes you have in
a paid show compared to the number of minutes you are on-line. So if you are
logged on for 100 minutes and spend twenty minutes of that in paid shows your
conversion ratio would be 20%.
This is a premium network, to maintain our position as the
best cam network we need to ensure that we only have the best models. To
maintain that we watch your conversion ratio. If you fall below 2% for two
consecutive weeks (Monday to Sunday) then you will be moved off the main network
onto the Video Chat site. Before the addition of Video Chat to the network models
in that fell into that category would’ve been moved off the site altogether.
How much do I get paid? When do I get paid? How do I get
paid? Why haven’t I been paid?
All questions regarding
or contact your account executive. This is the person that signed
PAYING YOUR TAXES
We are contracted entities and that means you can actually
start up a BUSINESS very inexpensively and start to write off things like:
*Of course verify this with a local accountant who is
familiar with ENTERTAINERS of ANY KIND*
- Portion of your house that you use for your web cam
- Portion of your internet bill
- New computers, web cams or renting of electronics that is
needed for your work
- New Lamps and light fixtures or wall coverings etc.
- Adult toys, Lubes
- Costumes which include; underwear, lingerie, shorts etc.
anything that you would/have worn online
- Portion of your Fitness Services ie: Gym Membership,
Personal Training. Keeping in shape IS YOUR BUSINESS (I offer help online too:)
These are just some of the examples that I have used as
both a Professional Union performer and Exotic Entertainer over the past
decade...EVEN your PHONE can have a portion written off if your calling your
PRIVATE clients (ONLY) as it was written on here that we can do that now.
A quick inexpensive "doing business as" license is very
cheap and if you make up to around 30-35K a year you don't need to incorporate.
If your making more than you should think about a
corporation or LIMITED LIABILITY company so that you have even more write offs
and less headache around tax time...the Limited Liability option is the better
of the two for Models.
No point in paying out of pocket for that 100-200 Dollar
toy or costume when your "business" can!
