Today we interview Alec. He is a camboy. If you have any questions for Alec, feel free to comment on this article, i will make sure he answers all of you 🙂
How old are you?
I’m 31 years old.
Do your friends/parents know that you are camming?
Yes, except from my grandma everybody knows 🙂 They are pretty cool and open people.
Having physical sex with member?
Nope, I’m only available in a digital format 🙂
How did you come up with you alter ego “Alec Hardy”?
Well, I always loved the name of ‘Eric Everhard’, I think it’s genious! I really wanted to incorporate ‘Hard’ somehow, so Hardy came pretty easily. The first name was a bit more difficult. I was brainstorming one night with a friend who suggested Alec and the first thing that came to my mind was Alec Baldwin who almost always plays a rather sexual person, so I fell in love with the idea, and Alec Hardy was born 🙂
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
Yeah, I have full sleeves on both of my arms, most of my chest is covered and a small portion of my back. It has a few references to the adult industry. I have Quagmire from Family Guy when he discovers Internet porn and one of his arm is like huge compared to the other haha. The other one is a butt plug on my back :))
Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m pretty good with computers, so the music sounds waaay better than the other camgirls’/camboys’ when I’m online. I sometimes even go online just to broadcast what I’m listening to (with the occasional cock of course 😛 ).
Has anyone from your camming network bought you anything from your wishlist?
Not yet, and I don’t personally know anybody who has gotten anything. I think it’s more for the very popular camgirls/camboys, who have thousands and thousands of people fighting for their attention 🙂 I’m a much smaller (and much more personal) fish in this sea 🙂
Have you ever had an embarrassing moment caught on webcam?
Hell yeah 🙂 Especially in the beginning. I was too afraid to say no to anything, so I tried to work out whatever request came in my way. A guy took me to private, wanted me to hold my balls in my hand and slap them from the front so hard that he’d hear it through the mic. I thought I could make this work by actually hitting my other hand instead of my balls. Well, I was wrong. The first one he immediately noticed, and for the second one I actually hit my balls by accident. Holy shit it was so painful… But I deserved it… I learned that if I’m not comfortable with something I should simply say no. That’s way more respectful towards the client, and saves me from a lot of embarrassment and pain (literally) later on.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’m pretty happy where I am at the moment. I almost moved to Cabo san Lucas, Mexico once but some personal life issues came up so it only ended up as a vacation. But my plan B if life goes really south and shit hits the fan is still Mexico 🙂
Do you have any crushes on anyone at your camming network?
Nobody in particular. I love cheerful people.
What is the wildest request you’ve received while webcamming?
The wildest one was kind of personal so in respect of the client I can’t share that one, but once someone wanted me to put my entire feet into my butt. I’m not that flexible. Neither is my butt 😀
When you like a guy how do you show it?
Well, I just say it. I’m a pretty straightforward guy. Also I’m more flexible in regards of requests when I like someone 🙂
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I can get emotional really easily. I can cry even on a toilet paper commercial, haha:D
What is a quote you live by?
Roughly translated to english it would be something like “If you’re a big boy in the evening, be a big boy the day after too.” Which means something like if you have some responsibilities and you decide to postpone them for something fun, don’t say you’re tired when the time comes to make up for it.
What is favorite thing about your camming network?
The people. So many fun, nice, cool people. Sure, you get your occasional weirdos, but I think I’m lucky regarding this.
Only using 3 words, describe yourself?
Funny, witty, horny!
If we looked inside your purse right now, what would we find?
Just my credit cards, IDs and gym pass. Oh, and a drawing of a butt plug lol.
What are some things that turn you on?
Fun people, toys, girls, boys, toys, flirting, toys, the occasional group sex and of course toys!
Do you have any fetishes?
Nothing in particular. I like butt stuff and showing myself to everyone around me haha.
What is your favorite sex toy?
Currently my Lovense Hush butt plug, but I’m already waiting delivery of the all new Lovense EDGE prostate massager.
Who do you think is the hottest camgirl on your camming network?
MyCherryCrush. I just love the style. Great wigs, always matching contacts, and really nice plugs! Amazing :))
When do you see the Career Being Over?
As long as someone is presentable and alive, I don’t think there’s an age limit.
What makes you proud to work in the sex industry?
I’m proud of what I do. I think everybody watches porn, everybody interacts sexually with someone, and I don’t really like prude people or bigotry. I think as long as someone is in control of what happens to him/her and is not using others against their will but gives pleasure and a fun time, it’s an amazing thing to do and it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
Do you have friends in the industry?
Yes, a few, but not too many.
What is the hair color that you keep most of the time?
My natural hair color, which is dark brown, but it’s getting gray fast 🙂 Most of the time it’s trimmed to 1mm, so the color is not too determinable I guess.
What makes you different than other camgirls?
Well, I’m a pretty honest guy. If I smile, I really like you and not just playing pretend. I’m more like the guy next door / colleague who is skype-ing with you after you finish in the office 😉
What is your height, weight and body measurements?
I’m 182cm high, 88kg, muscular with a few extra pounds and ~18-19cm long (a bit thin though) 🙂
Your opinion on future of camming?
I think VR might play an interesting role. Interactive toys like what Lovense offers too. And I can’t even imagine what else. Technology is changing so fast that it’s pretty impossible to predict anything. But whatever it’ll be, I’m sure it’s gonna be amazing 🙂
Your comments on some camming trends that you might have witnessed?
I simply cannot understand how some girls/guys have the Lovense toys inside them and start shaking uncontrollably for a 1 token tip. I mean seriously… it’s a 200g device…. Sure it can vibrate really powerfully, but shaking a 60+ kg body like that… you would have to be in an epileptic shock or something. But I guess there are people who want to see that 🙂 Not me though, I think it’s hideous…
Do you have a job outside of camming?
Yeah, I’m a full-time web developer. Sometimes when I code from home I go online, stream music and myself of course and show an occasional dick, and almost always get sidetracked by people who come into my room. I just can’t stay away for too long 🙂
Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend? How do they feel about you camming?
Nope, not at the moment 🙂 But I’d only be with someone who’d be completely okay with what I do. If not, they aren’t the right type of person for me anyway.
What are tippers’ most popular requests?
For the ones who actually tip: ”Show feet” 🙂 I love foot fetish people. No idea why, I just love them 🙂
Would you ever consider doing porn?
Not professionally. I really like shooting videos, I’m selling them on a lot of platforms like manyvids. You can chek them out at https://www.manyvids.com/Profile/768775/AlecHardy/
Professional porn is not so healthy I think. There’s a great documentary and a spinoff documentary series on Netflix actually that I think everybody should watch! It’s called ‘Hot girls wanted’. There’s also ‘After porn ends’ and ‘After porn ends 2’. I highly suggest you go and watch them. They are really eye-opening!
On an average, How much money do you make (numbers in Per day, Per week, Per month). (Combined all sources)?
Well, as this is a secondary income for me it’s not representative to full-time models, but I’d say I can easily get around $10/hour. A full-time camgirl can easily make 6-$10.000 / month if she puts in the hours.
Percentage breakup of your income? (like Camming, Selling videos, pics, Sexting, Phone sex etc)?
Camming is 70%, selling videos is around 28% and the rest is 2%
Your top 5 tippers contribute what percentage of your total camming income.?
About 80%, so yeah… take good good care of your regulars people!
Number of websites you cam on?
Chaturbate is my no1 site. You can find me there at https://chaturbate.com/alechardyxxx . Sometimes I’m also on-line on youkandy and bongacams. I tried livejasmin but it’s not my cup of tea. Basically you can find a profile of me on almost any adult related site, just search for ‘alechardyxxx’ 🙂
Your comments on Using games, competition and tip wars for more income. Do you use them?
Yes yes yes! Hell yes! I love them, and they are an amazing tool to motivate your viewers to tip. Nobody is going to tip if you’re just sitting there like a potato jerking off. Well okay, someone might, but it’s likeliness is comparable to someone buying the full version of WinRAR… 🙂 As confusing apps and bots may be at first, get to know them, because they have a HUGE potential to increase activity in your room and ultimately your income!
How long have you been camming for?
How many days you work?
I get online 3-4 times a week. If I’m really overwhelmed with programming work I do morning/afternoon quickie shows, which are like “50-100 token to cum”. Usually I do these when I would jerk off anyway, so why not make somebody smile, and for 50-100 tokens a cum show really is a bargain, so try to catch me when I’m doing one next time! 😉
How many hours you put in each week?
About 20-25. It’s insane how easily you can put in a lot of hours just by offline work. Editing videos, promoting on social media, learning about new fetishes, etc.
On average, how many tokens do you earn per show?
It really depends on the type of show. For a quickie, on average 100 tokens. For ‘normal’ shows somewhere between 100 and 800 tokens, it really varies.
How long are your broadcasts typically?
A few hours usually. 2-3 on average.
What’s the most money you’ve earned in a broadcast?
I don’t remember exactly, but a few hundred bucks.
What does it cost somebody for a custom video?
5 minutes: $13.99,
10 minutes: $20.99,
20 minutes: $29.99
You can order them on my manyvids page. The direct link is https://www.manyvids.com/Custom-vid/768775/
How do you get clients? The best strategies you use?
I think the best way is to be online. Camsites drive a huge amount of traffic to you, it’s highly the best way to make yourself visible.
How much role social media plays in driving clients. Which networks give the best results. Also mention some tips and tactics that other newbie camgirls can use?
Twitter is cool, but I think it’s a bit overrated. I have camgirl friends who have over 30.000 followers and they make up only a small fraction of their income source. But if you want to be able to interact with your friends I highly recommend you have a good profile which you update regularly. I used crowdfire to boost the number of my followers which actually worked great. Got about 50 new followers / day, so try it out! You have to put in some work every day, but it’s about 5-10 minutes, so I think it’s worth it.
Help other Camgirls:
Give us three camming networks that you recommend in decreasing order of your recommendation. (#1 being your favorite, then #2 and so on)?
#1 is chaturbate. Huge site, a gazillion users, amazing tools, apps, bots.
If you’re not comfortable with doing free shows, and would only do privates, than go for LiveJasmin (I don’t really like them though. They are too strict, and the shares are shit)
#2 is youkandy. You’ll have a plethora of options from camming to selling content. Go check it out
#3 is Bongacams. I really like the interface and the people on bongacams.
What is your message for all camgirls / camboys out there struggling?
What advice would you give to anyone else wanting to get into the sex industry?
This is work just like anything else. You have to put in the hours if you want to earn money. And I think it’s just as hard as any other job, just in different ways. So don’t expect free money, that’s the exception not the rule. The highly successful camgirls you see earning tons of money and having incredible amounts of followers are putting in sweat, blood and hard work to get there and stay there. Also it’s just like any other business. There are ups and downs. Traffic is great sometimes, and shit the other month. If you want a fixed income, go work in retail :))
Tips/tricks/hacks for getting popular and making money in camming for newbie camgirls?
I don’t really belive in hacks. Be good at what you do. Research. Read. And I mean read a lot. And then go and read some more. Observe others, learn, educate yourself, practice and you’ll do great. You’ll mess up a few times, that’s sure, but it only means you’re trying. Strive to produce quality content and try your best to give great shows. That’s all, no need to worry too much about it, it’s all fun after all 🙂
Questions apart from Camming:
Your Favorite Phone Sex network and why?
Ifriends. That’s the only one I use, so I don’t really have any experience with others.
Your Favorite sexting network and why?
I tried snapchat and kik, found both to be a time waster. Just a bunch of bots or horny teenage boys. I’m sure it works for some, but for me it was a bit disappointing. And I did put a lot of hours into it. But try it out yourself, maybe you’ll find that it’s just the thing for you.
Your Favorite network to sell nudes and why?
Manyvids. I love the quality web interface, the support, and everything about it. I think it’s the best site out there for selling content at the moment.
Your Favorite network for creating fanclub and why?
Modelcentro. It has tons of great features, and you can create an amazing fansite in a few hours. Check it out, it’s great. Also you can check out onlyfans. I don’t have too much experience with it, but it also seems pretty cool.
