A Webcam Startup AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Camboys Alec Hardy and Greg Busyman, hosted by Aerie_SM and Katy Churchill. We collected questions from the community prior to the AMA, and also took questions from the live audience
How To You Prepare For Camming / Producing Clips
Greg: I schedule about half my shows, and the ones that I don’t schedule I just find some time. The ones that I schedule, my routine is about to get ready about 10 minutes before hand just to make sure everything is working, and that is basically ‘panic mode’, just like I assume it is very just about everybody else. I don’t spend about an hour doing makeup or anything like that.
Alec: I’m basically the same, I just fire up the software and kill all the other software that’s hogging CPU. Maybe I check the background to make sure that everything looks good, but basically that’s all.
How Do You Stay Hard For Extended Periods – Do You Use Pills?
Alec: No way!
Greg: Not often. The thing is, not everyone wants to see it hard. I’m surprised at how many people want to see it soft.
Growers or Showers?
Alec: I’m a grower. I go from tiny to as big as my arm! I actually have a seven hour porn compilation that I use to keep myself turned on. I don’t stay hard all the time when it’s not need, because why bother, but when someone takes me to private and wants me to be hard, it helps.
Greg: I’m definitely a grower. I’m very self-conscience when I’m small and soft.
How Do Privates Work? Do Privates Or Public Shows Work Better
Greg: I used to think that you’d have a certain amount of inventory that, you know, it takes like 20 minutes to recharge. But some want to see you soft, some want to see you stroking, it’s actually surprising how many people don’t want to see a cumshot at the end.
Alec: Yeah, it’s very much the same for me. There are some that do want the to see me cum, and when I do a public show, it usually ends with a cumshot. A few weeks ago I just finished a cum show and then a regular came by and he’s into hypnotizing fetish, so he didn’t really require my penis at all.
Do You Guys Do A Lot Of Fetish Or Vanilla?
Alec: In shows, I’m mostly doing vanilla stuff, but in privates I do have a few regulars who are into fetishes. Nothing too…..Fetishy. But I’m primarily focusing on clips now because of schedules. And now that I’m focusing on clips, I’m starting to indulge in fetishes. With vanilla clips it’s just a bunch of jerking off and if I don’t change it up, it gets boring.
Greg: I guess it’s the same for me. The thing is; everyone has their own fetishes and the thing that surprises me is the requests I get, whether it’s different body parts or doing different things. I don’t seek it out, but some stuff I’ll entertain.
Greg: How Often Do You Get Asked To Show Your Face?
Greg: I get asked that probably about once per show. At the beginning of my career, I used to, but my stuff got recorded and posted. Due to the stigma surrounding the industry, I didn’t want my face plastered all over the tube sites and rest of the internet. I got in trouble a little bit with my employment at the time, and stopped showing my face.
For some privates with regular customers that I know really well, I’ll still show my face, but that’s the only time.
Do You Do Anal and How Do You Prepare For It?
Greg: I didn’t really at first, just here and there and more as fetish stuff. But a few weeks ago, I got a Lovense Hush, which is a vibrating buttplug that reacts for tips. That toy has done surprisingly well and I’ve had a lot of wild shows where people go crazy with it.
Alec: I fucking love the Hush! I’ve got it charging right here! On Chaturbate they’re huge! I hardly do anal because I love binge-eating and it can make it hard to prepare. I did make a silicon copy of my dick once and people went nuts because I was fucking myself, but sadly, it broke.
How Often Do You Have To “Fuck Your Butt”?
Greg: I’ve been doing this for a long time and I didn’t stick anything up my ass for the first three months or so. It’s really not that big of a deal.
Alec: I don’t really do much dildo fucking, it’s more just buttplugs and stuff. One comment I have for the guys thinking about getting into the industry and are worried about anal; anal is awesome! If you’re not doing out, you’re missing out both personally as well as monetarily.
How Long Are You Able To Cam (Can You Cum Multiple Times?)
Greg: I did a show once for about four hours and I came five times and I could hardly walk the next day.
Alec: My record is like cumming twice. I could cum six, seven or eight times a day, but I only do up to two.
