For all you folks out there who spend hours ogling the male form — whether on True Blood, American Ninja Warrior, Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling, or on your personal spank bank — let it be known that you can book a private session with a buff dude online. Meet the Cam Boys.
Of course, given the prolific industry of camgirls (which held the world's first camming convention earlier this month), that there is a male equivalent isn't exactly a revelation. Naturally there would be a market for chatting with a dude, watching him masturbate, or maybe even just watching him eat food. Over at BetaBeat, Jordyn Taylor chatted up Mike Hard, a construction worker-turned-camboy to discuss his experiences.
What do you typically do on camera?
I was and still am new to the business, so my camera routine would change. Sometimes I would strip tease, sometimes work out in my boxer briefs — even work out naked. Other times I'd pleasure myself on cam, if that's what the viewers wanted to see. I developed the way I perform by trying to please the viewers and make them happy. If I gave them a great show, most of the time they'd give me a five star rating. Of course you can't please everyone, because I don't do certain things.
Do you think there's more of a stigma against male webcam performers than female performers?
Yeah, I'd say I believe so. [It's odd], because a lot of people say how men are all about sex and it's all we think about, but the reality is females think about it just as much, or sometimes even more than we do. That, and they show their sexual side more than most of us males do. Hell, I watch some of my female friends on their cams — females are truly beautiful and very sexy, just everything about them. Males, we are known to be hard and tough.
"Hard and tough" says Mike Hard. Still, I'm very taken with the idea that cam boys can make their earnings just working out. With or without clothes—it doesn't really matter. At the end of the day, don't we all just appreciate someone exhibiting the glory that is the human body?
