Stickam sex cams
The gifts came from total strangers and online friends alike, people the girls had gotten to know through their Web sites.
Katneko's younger sister, 15-year-old Brandi, was so impressed by all of the goodies arriving at their home from people the girls had never met in person that Brandi set up a personal page on her big sis's site so she could beg for her own loot.
There are cam boys too, but -- chalk it up to hetero-horndogging -- it's girls who rule in the popularity game of the cam portals, gathering fan clubs and shaking down gifts.
The wish list is the perfect tool for cam kids because it allows them to ask for exactly what they want and have it sent to their house without ever revealing a home address -- the e-commerce vendor, whether it's Abercrombie & Fitch or Amazon, doesn't reveal the "wisher's" location.
What if you put up a wish list, but don't show skin?
"They're gifts, and like all good things, acceptable.The cam universe is "basically like high school blown up exponentially," says Marissa, 24 (old, by the standards of this world). Popularity rules." Some of the better-known cam girls have fan clubs with hundreds of members who swap photos and exchange e-mail with their idols. Outwhore." Marissa won the contest, but was accused by other contestants of showing too much skin to do it.Earlier this year, the cam world even had its own version of the reality TV show "Survivor" -- called Survivorcam -- where 16 cam kids competed for 0 by completing various silly, bawdy and outrageous immunity challenges in front of their cams, some claiming to be as young as 14. Like everything else in the insular webcam community, the meaning and morality of the wish lists is hotly debated by the cam kids themselves. If you don't show your tits, does that mean you're not "whoring for hits"?;-)" Even so, Perfekt got so much booty from her fans that she has since taken down her wish list: "A lot of people were very generous -- too generous in my opinion -- around the holidays and the guilt was too much for me to swallow." Cam sites range from simple photo galleries to elaborate diaries and art projects; some have live cameras and others just feature stills captured from video cameras.
They're as diverse as the girls who create them -- and, in the grand tradition of their ancestor, Jennicam, they offer a strange mixture of distance and intimacy.
So the relationship between the online pen pal or fan can remain entirely virtual, yet still produce the goods.
