“There’s a large amount of people that are looking to jump into this industry for the first time, and that saturates the market quite a bit,” Toronto-based Cam Model Cecilia Morrell told The Times.

“I think people are not only hoarding toilet paper, they’re hoarding money, because no one knows when their next paycheck is coming,” added Raie, a British Chaturbate model.

“I’m meeting a whole bunch of people more frequently than I normally would, but there’s not much more money,” CamSoda model Mileena Kane told the paper, explaining that while her viewership has risen, each individual fan is tipping less than was typical before the shutdowns hit.

“Sure, do it, create an OnlyFans, start camming — but that means you have to support sex workers all year round now,” she told The Times. “You can’t just dip in and out of it because you think it’s easy and then trash us in the end.”
