Dominate Camming With Authenticity

Dominate Camming With Authenticity

I started my career two years ago, on Twitter, doing financial domination and humiliation. I think it’s hilarious that men pay me to watch them do the dumbest things to themselves. Sometimes, if the men were boring me, I’d just take their money and ignore them. After a few months, I started creating fetish and female domination videos and uploading them to clip sites. I’ve always been a fun, spoiled brat who loves taking men’s money and laughing at them, so becoming a dominatrix and making femdom content naturally suited me.

At first, I conformed to the style of a stereotypical dominatrix — lots of black, vinyl, PVC, leather and dark latex. But this did not reflect my personal style. Why should I play out some stereotype? Why be another copy? I want my fans to love me, not this person costuming as a PVC-clad domina. The real “me” is so much more interesting than a cliché.

I love wearing pink things and that now reflects in my clips. I realized I could dress cute and still be dominant. Why be an ordinary domme when I can be myself?

So, instead of continuing to mimic what I had seen others doing, last summer I decided to dress more like myself. Now, most of my clips include me in shiny and colorful dresses, bikinis and lingerie. I love wearing pink things and that now reflects in my clips. I realized I could dress cute and still be dominant. Why be an ordinary domme when I can be myself?

My work has evolved with my own personal growth. Goddess Venus fits my own vision of what I think a Goddess should be. She’s a woman full of laughter, joy, charisma, beauty and life — that you’d naturally love to worship. A Goddess doesn’t care what others think of her. She is authentically and unapologetically herself.

Sharing this vision with my fans has created a deeper intimacy between us. By allowing my authentic style to shine through, they’re able to connect with another layer of me. This is important to me now because it’s allowed me to attract clients and customers who appreciate my genuine self.

To grow my client and customer base, I spend a lot of my day on Twitter replying to others, creating my own posts and replying to other performer’s posts and liking their tweets. Twitter has always been at the core of my work — out of all of the popular social media platforms it is the most adult-friendly. When I first started, I posted a lot of photos and videos because they get higher engagement than simple text posts. Once I gained a bigger following, I reduced the amount of photos and videos I posted and directed people more to my private fan club for additional content. I try to post a new photo every few days to entice fans.

To promote my clips, fan club and phone/video/chat sessions, I use fetish-specific hashtags, which help customers find my content. I also use auto tweets through iWantClips that trigger each time a new clip is posted and when I make clip sales. These are also tweeted with hashtags. I do have to be careful with auto tweets though because my account can get shadow banned if the ratio of auto tweets to organic tweets are too high. Shadow banning is what happens when an account gets limited, but you don’t realize it because it isn’t formal. To prevent this from happening, I write my own tweets and replies throughout the day.

Another thing that has really helped my business is attending adult industry conferences. Not only do these conferences provide beneficial workshops and classes, they also host mixers and networking events. Meeting my peers in person has created stronger relationships than those only maintained online. And it’s fun! I’ve been able to meet clip artists and porn stars who I’ve been friends with online or following for years. The conferences always have really fun parties — some of them even have a pool!

We don’t just have a good time though — we also all benefit from sharing knowledge about our trade with one another. Working together works: participating in a community has increased my social media reach, through cross-promotion, and has opened me up to career opportunities I wouldn’t have otherwise had.

If you see me at a conference come say “hi.” I’m the friendly dominatrix most likely wearing pink.
