let's become camgigolos
I remember some months back there was this amazing movement where in the United States, a bunch of roasty camwhores on social assistance were receiving supplementary income as "gifts" which didn't affect the welfare they received since they did not declare it as income, but they got reported to the IRS and were subject to review. It was glorious.
I worked full time as a teenager and in my 20s, but lost my job and fell into a depression for years. I had saved up a lot of money, so I lived off my savings and only got on welfare recently when they ran out. I would like to begin working again, but because I have no recent experience, my resume is horrible and nobody wants me. If I cite that the last time I worked was 5+ years ago then they will want to know why I haven't worked, and they will think I am lazy or a bad fit.
One thing which I think would expand my prospects is if I had a vehicle. You can have up to 10,000 in assets and still receive welfare where I am, however a vehicle is exempt from this. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere near enough to buy one. I spent most of the welfare on high rent with some left over for food (thinking of going to a food bank but they only let you get 3 days worth per month, so that's ~10% of my needs)
I also need a reliable computer that doesn't crash after 15 minutes of activity and need a reboot. I'm beginning to feel my obesity more in my 30s (painful to stand for long periods) and have painful inner thigh moles which cause pain after prolonged walking. My doctors never seem to like me and never seem to agree that my health coverage should include the removal of these moles, or receiving psychiatric counseling for anxiety and depression.
So what I was thinking is: I basically have no pride, no reputation… and I want money. Even if I could find a job, it would be for minimum wage and welfare would just "clawback" all of it (reduce my bux to compensate) so I couldn't actually increase my savings to work towards gaining a vehicle or modern computer to increase my independence and employment options.
I wonder if maybe being a camwhore is the answer? Women already, both IRL and online, get "gifts" constantly from beta orbiters which they won't declare as income when they're on social assistance, so I feel no guilt at all in attempting this since I would never be able to approach the success they get in it. Odds are to get equivalent compensation, I would have to spent a lot more time, or do much more degrading things, or be much more physically fit, or some combination of the three.
Where do you get started on this type of thing though? What websites are trustworthy in protecting the privacy of male performers and making sure they get their gifts? I believe there are lots of wealthy elder faggots out there full of thirst for young men (even wizards in their 30s) who have saved up plenty of money to spare on gifts since they will often be confirmed bachelors without children aren't seduced into parting with most of their assets by succubi. I don't mind giving them some perverse happiness (perhaps if they are content watching me do stuff voluntarily, they may be disinclined to rape young boys?) in exchange for gifts.
I guess the main thing is to set it up where it's not guaranteed payment, so donations are inconsistent but you can sort of negotiate it like you will be "bored" and "tired" and not want to perform, unless people "excite" you with gifts.
I like to think I am so abnormal and detached from normal sexual identity that this wouldn't bother me, but I'm not sure. Part of me still wants to cover my face to reduce the chances of being stalked IRL. There's also the chance my mom would throw me out (I pay about 200 less for renting a room from her than I would a stranger) if she found out about this… but then again she'd probably throw me out if she found out a LOT of stuff I do online…
Could this negatively affect self esteem? I believe it would be less of a risk than having actual sex IRL. The thing is… because I am overweight, I don't know if I'd be able to make anything. There are probably a lot more attractive guys with the same idea who the elderly homosexuals would want to give gifts to instead of me. But perhaps if I do begin this, it will give me more incentive to improve my health, get physically fit? This could make me eligible for more actual jobs too, since if I way less I could probably stand up for longer periods without pain, or my thighs would chafe less if there was less fat pushing them together.
I'm wondering if anyone knows some guidelines or tutorials for getting into this sort of thing. I don't think it's something I'd want to do longterm, but if I'm going to be sitting at home unable to find work, I figure anything I can do to increase my assets which I could them use to acquire work would be a good way to spend my time.
