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?The only people who seem to use Face Time are long-distance grandparents, people with babies and tech-wankers.
This is what I’d believed, but I apparently 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 to journalism or the medical supply industry.
Amy Lu Bennett, a 26-year-old glamour model from Berkshire, is a case in point.
Anticipating the demise of the lads' mags that kickstarted her career, Amy Lu switched her attention to the internet – where readers had already migrated in droves – 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 Jack Russell, Miffy, on to her leg.
