The phenomenon of cam-girls in Romania
Thousands of women and men work in the European country offering online sex sessions for international clients who pay thousands of dollars for their services. The largest online site in this industry has more than 30 million users every day.
It is the fastest growing sector in the pornographic industry.
In Romania, thousands of women work as “cam-girls” or “girls on camera” from studies or from their homes. It is a market that operates 24 hours a day seven days a week and most of the clients of sex cams that connect online are in North America and Western Europe. In the heart of Bucharest, on the sidewalk next to a high-rise apartment building, a group of young women smoke, talk and laugh. It is a common scene in any city. But it’s morning and these girls wear elaborate makeup, extra high heels and revealing outfits, very different from the summer dresses of other people who pass by the place.
Inside the building, Studio 20 occupies the first two floors. Forty rooms give impeccable runners, covered with images of glamorous women and not very covered. If the door of a room is closed, it means that a woman in there is interacting with an international client through a webcam. And while someone is alone in the room, everything is legal.
In this world of virtual relationships and cybersex, women in front of the camera are called “models” and men who look at them are called “members”.
Lana, one of the models, works in room number 8. The room has a large circular bed with cushions and there is a wardrobe with some of her outfits. “I usually wear dresses, lingerie or leather clothes,” she says. In one corner of the room there is a huge TV screen, an expensive camera behind and professional lights. Many pairs of eyes may be watching Lana live through adult websites. But the young woman only earns money if a client asks for a private session. Lana works eight hours a day and earns an average of US $ 4,700 a month, 10 times the average salary of Romania. As Lana’s employer, Studio 20 also earns about $ 4,700 a month thanks to its private sessions.
What happens during a private session through a webcam?
Most of it is just conversation, the model also plays a role play and a minor part includes nudity and masturbation. Sometimes customers try to push her to do “things she does not want”, but in general it is the model who directs the show. The important thing is to make a paying customer stay online as many minutes as possible. This is one interesting phenomenon brought about by the Internet about how “sex thing” is brought to many people at once with private lines.
