The company said the idea came together as part of Fleshlight’s belief in the power of the webcam market, and Flirt4Free’s interest in continuing to help grow their models’ brands.
In January, 2015 the first Cam Stars were announced following FLirt4Free's three-month long annual "Flirt of the Year" contest. Fans were able to vote daily for their favorite Fleshlight Mold prize model.
“We wanted to get users involved on helping determine the first Fleshlight Cam Star to really have the models users are most interested in buying a mold of,” said Jamie Rodriguez, Flirt4Free brand manager. "The models who won truly are cam models who are well-rounded and widely appreciated across the site.”
The female Fleshlight Viewer’s Choice winner is Canadian Cherry Devivre, who won in her first year on Flirt4Free. “Being a web cam model has opened tremendous opportunities for me. In less than a year's time I’ve already gained my own online audience and become one of the Top Flirt4Free models. The key success in this business I found in being able to provide your fans with the most exclusive experience and show them your true self. I never faked my feelings or pretend to be someone I’m not, and I think this is what people find attractive the most,” Devivre said.
American Jake Orion was the Fleshjack Viewer’s Choice male winner. Orion pushed hard for three months to secure his first place finish but wasn't sure what to expect. “Texas was great. Honestly had doubts about going at first, not knowing my comfort level of the situation. I was treated with the utmost respect and I as well returned the favor,” Orion said. “It was a very professional experience and I would be happy to go back. It's an honor to be the first cam star ever and really hoping for the success on my product. Not only is it the company’s job to advertise the product, but mine as well.”
Devivre also commented on being a Fleshlight Cam Star. “Ever since I started broadcasting I have never regretted the decision I made leaving the corporate world. And I could have never imagined that I would receive such an amazing reward as being nominated for the First Ever Fleshlight Cam Star. I can’t describe how happy and grateful I am to all my fans for getting me here. I often think of an expression ‘being in the right place at the right time.’ Out of all the web cam sites out there Flirt4Free is definitely the most unique and trustworthy. And it’s a truly an honor to be part of their team.”
Both companies plan on announcing four more girls and four guys to the line of Cam Star molds over the next few months, and having the Fleshlight molds fully integrated into Flirt4Free so customers can purchase the mold of the model they’re chatting with without leaving the site.
“We are delighted to be working with Flirt4Free and within the live cam sector. In my opinion, cam girls/guys are the biggest entertainers in our industry,” Fleshlight COO Brian Shubin said.
