The Real Roni Raye A.W.A. Winner, ‘Best Milf Cam Model’

Fan Voted – ‘Top Milf Cam Model Show 2017’

Q. How did you get started as a cam model?

I started modeling for adult men’s magazines & doing amateur videos in the
early 90’s, while also working as a phone sex operator and did that 20 years.
Since I have always enjoyed modeling, flirting, teasing, etc, becoming a cam model seemed to be a natural progression. I started working as a cam model in 2010 and I really believe my prior experience in adult entertainment gave me a little bit of an advantage since I had already built a fan base from long before.

Q. What do you consider your breakthrough moment as far as when you became really successful as a cam model?

Well, what really made me excited was when fans were visiting my cam room and telling me they remembered me from my early days in the business. Then I noticed a regular fan base coming back for repeat cam shows. But honestly, winning this award was the real
breakthrough moment, because it was my very first award and really made me feel recognized for all my hard work and time that I put into it.

Q. What advice would you give to other cam modeling professionals?

I think so many models get into this business thinking that they are going to
make a ton of money right from the start…they believe that they will just be able to log on and magically the cash will come raining down. It just doesn’t work that way! If you look at any successful cam model, there is a ton of WORK and preparation that goes into their success.

  • Make sure you have a good quality cam and mic ( I use a Logitech C920)
  • Make sure your lighting is good
  • Promote yourself
  • Set boundaries and stick to them.

This is something I have learned through the years. Make up your mind what you will and will not do. If something makes you uncomfortable- don’t do it. Too many visitors on these sites think that if they throw money at a cam girl she should do anything he wants! At a cam model, we are in control- we choose what we want to do. You CAN say NO! If you don’t want to do something than it’s that simple…”Sorry I don’t do that!”. When I first started I thought I had to accommodate every request given to me in free chat. If you remember “Your room, your rules” motto you will be fine.

Be prepared to have good and BAD days. Not every day will be busy- you can only hope for the best and what the day brings and the rest is out of your hands. There are things out of our control like tech issues on the cam site, slow traffic, etc. If you feel yourself becoming frustrated, log off for awhile! I will tell you from first hand experience that when you aren’t happy it comes through on cam. I can’t tell you how many times I have been watching other models and I can tell by their facial expressions, tone in her voice and attitude if she is having a bad day. There is no doubt some days things will get to you- it’s best to just remove yourself and come back at a later time. And there are those days that no matter how many times you do that it doesn’t get better so it’s best to call it a day.

Q. What are your current goals?

Well after 25 years in this business, I have never had a paid fan membership site until recently. I launched my site www.realroniraye.com in Jan 2017, so I am excited to see how it goes. My current goals are to continue working as a cam model, create new material for my site, and hopefully get new members as time goes on. I have always loved showing off and really enjoy the positive feedback I get from my fans.

Q. What trends or changes do you see taking place in the cams industry?

I really think the latest trend is the interactive toys or any other tech gadget that brings the model and her fan closer. At one time I was thinking the 3D cam would become a thing but not sure how that will take off.

Q. What do you see happening in the short term as far as changes in the Adult Webcams Business?

Well obviously this business has become vastly popular. There are tons of cam sites and tons of new models. It seems that it has become even more acceptable these days than it was back in the days of filming homemade amateur videos. I think you will see many models leaving as quickly as they enter the business because they aren’t cut out for it.
It takes a certain kind of person who can handle it. Not many models can do this full time and sustain the income it takes to survive.

I think there will be more new cam sites that come and more that go. It is certainly a competitive industry. Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but I would love to see cam sites offer more benefits and recognition to their models. At the very least more bonuses or incentives.
