Is Cam Modeling, Sex Work Feminist? Stripchat Polls Performers

LIMASSOL, Cyprus — Stripchat recently interviewed a group of its most popular webcam models and asked their thoughts about feminism and whether or not doing cam work — or adult entertainment in general — was considered feminist.

“This is a question that women have been asked for a while now, and the argument is, ‘how can we be feminists if we are objectified as sex objects on a daily basis?’ I get that many women see it that way, but I have a different outlook on this,” says a Stripchat performer from New York who prefers to remain anonymous.

“Women in the U.S. are incredibly lucky — in 2018 we have more choices in how we can live our lives than at any other time in history,” she adds. “If I want to own my own company, work in an office, stay at home and raise kids or entertain clients in front of a webcam… I can. There are no limits to what we can do. That’s my idea of feminism… I’m going to do what I want.”

A Stripchat model from Florida says she likes to think of herself as a feminist, but understands that many people might disagree.

“You’re having a man tell you what to do on the other end of a webcam as you entertain him for pleasure. That in itself, I suppose, is the opposite of what a feminist believes in,” she explains. “I see both sides. But I love what I do, so it works for me personally.”

“I love what I do, I love working for Stripchat and I make my own hours and I’m building my own wealth,” confides a performer from California. “It’s nobody’s business to judge.”

“Feminist, not feminist, I don’t care. I’ve built a business spending time with a lot of great people,” she concludes. “If they’re happy, I’m happy. What does it matter?”

According to the company, Stripchat is a live cam site that creates an interactive striptease experience between amateur models and their online paramours in a discreet, secure setting. Offering an intimate feel, the token-based membership site is free to join and easy to navigate, with hundreds of private chat rooms and exclusive Cam2Cam performances, as well as photo and video content, messaging and more.
