On top of pay-per minute and fixed-fee private shows, live adult webcam performers are able to bring in more money using remote sex devices, such as interactive smart sex toys, via a tip-based system that connects tokens to real-time vibrations during live webshows.
Customers can control a performer’s Bluetooth or Wifi-enabled smart vibrator during a live webchat, joined by other visitors. The vibrations work tactically via an app or directly via paying tips. There’s also a chance to request for a privately paid show where you can enjoy some one-on-one control.
Combining real-time tactile stimulation with the visual performance bridges the detachment. It almost breaks the fourth wall by allowing two or more parties to engage in an intimate exchange. Performers who offer more personalised interactive adult content, find their clientele are encouraged to splash more virtual cash.
On cam sites, such as CamSoda, you will frequent the Lovense Lush interactive sex toy. With it’s familiar pink antennae poking out of cam performers’ orifices, this clitoris and G spot vibrator responds directly to tips. How many tips you pay typically equals a different vibration strength or speed, depending on the default setting the performer has chosen. Lovense also offers butt plug, wand, and masturbatory stroker versions.
The Lovense Lush interactive sex toy has become so popular that one camgirl said that in her early streams, customers were shocked that she was yet to own one, informing her that she was losing out on customers by not engaging with the “physical side” of webcamming.
Aside from the viewer’s knowledge of this product, it’s widespread popularity may also be due to the “interactive online entertainment system and method” patent created by Lovense in 2017, which covered the interactive control of tip-controlled vibrators. It has allowed Lovense to monopolise over a web-browser extension that automatically connects a device to the live stream. This means that performers can easily adjust the vibration pattern and intensity to suit their price range for their tipping customers.
The OhMiBod Esca2 takes on a similar approach to the Lovense Lush toy, with an added level of interaction with a light on the end of the antennae to convey to an audience when it is vibrating. The bonus of the Esca2 for camgirls is the setting with the high intensity light combined with medium vibrations – just in case those clients get a little over excited, performers will want to have at least some control over their pleasure.
Since the Lovense tip control patent, other cam sites have found other ways to cash in on interactive sex, including bidirectional control. Via the Feel Connect app, Kiirroo’s teledildonic products offer two way stimulation for the performer as well as the viewer. Just as strippers receive tips for private dances, online cammers can offer fixed-fee private shows to receive more virtual cash.
The fun doesn’t stop there. In multi-group party chats, multiple viewers who own compatible toys can simultaneously experience pleasure along with other viewers, while the performer simultaneously rakes in multiple tips from their multiple clients. Score.
As webcamming is a fast growing industry, it is likely we will be seeing much more interactive sex toys come to market, enhancing intimacy between performer and viewer.
