It’s hard to imagine being sexy on Face Time, given that for most people it's just that thing that happens to your i Phone when you press the wrong button sometimes.Also, doesn't it make your head look like a thumb?
This is what I’d believed, but I apparently I had it all wrong.
To an increasing number of men with erections and enough data allocation left on their monthly plans, Apple’s pocket Skype is yet another masturbatory aid to add to the arsenal—a new platform for people to talk to girls they’ve met on the internet and paid to strip naked in a private one-on-one show.
Of course, looking at it like that, it makes sense; succeeding in business is all about moving with the times.
In that respect, the business of taking your clothes off is really no different from journalism or the medical-supply industry.
Amy Lu Bennett, a 26-year-old glamour model from the UK, is a case in point.
Anticipating the demise of the men's mags that kickstarted her career, Amy Lu switched her attention to the internet and started her own site, Xtreme Playpen.
She posed topless for her own photos and videos and built up a network of girls who would do the same.
She also became a cam girl, working for Playboy TV, selling cam sessions on the internet, and pioneering the latest industry trend: Face Timing men, one-on-one, for cash.
“Face Time is personal,” says Amy Lu over the phone, while a guy tattoos the face of her dog, Miffy, onto her leg.
“Men want that intimacy of being in your bedroom and talking to you on your phone.
For them, it feels more like having a girlfriend, and actually—aside from guys who pay—I don’t really Face Time anyone other than my boyfriend, so I suppose it makes sense.” If you google girls who strip on Face Time, you won’t get a lot of joy; it’s a trade that still largely exists within chat rooms and private inboxes.
