Some fans communicate multiple times a day with models through social media.
Unlike traditional pornography, the interactive nature of the camming medium titillates with the promise of virtual friendship.
A webcam model often performs erotic acts online, such as stripping, in exchange for money, goods, or attention. Since many webcam models operate independently from their homes, they are free to choose the amount of sexual content for their broadcasts.
In 1996 an American college student and conceptual artist, Jenny Ringley, created a website called "Jenni Cam." Her web camera was located in her dorm room and automatically photographed her every few minutes.
However this is not the first time that conversational interaction had become a boon for the erotic entertainment industry.
