Sex sells – we all know that. But it also pays. A lot.
23-year-old Australia resident Amy Stockham makes $82,000 annually by getting behind her webcam and chatting with men online for just a few hours a day. The best part? Only a small portion of what she does for her clients is sexual.
“I do show a bit of bum and boobs,” she told The Sun, “but 90% of it is just talking.”
It turns out that Stockham’s clients are willing to pay $7 a minute to hang out with an attractive woman for a bit. Stockham says she gets all kinds of bizarre requests.
“I’ve seen it all,” she says. “I get a lot of guys coming in wanting me to humiliate them and take the mick out of their size … Some guys like me to tell them to sellotape their bits to their bellies, then there’s the leg shaves — they just like to watch me shave my legs.”
One of her customer’s routinely asks her to watch him iron clothes.
“I have one guy, a midget, who comes on, and likes me to watch him iron, and then he does a little dance,” she says. “I’ve had guys in a private message for three of four hours before just getting drunk, and another guy who was just watching Come Dine with Me — I love those ones. It’s just acting. It’s not stuff I’m into, I just tell them what they want to hear. I enjoy my work and I’m open about it.”
Prior to finding her current line of work, Stockham lived paycheck-to-paycheck and worked at a supermarket. Her new career has completely turned her financial life around.
“We’ve been able to save up $34,500 to buy a house next year,” she says. “We’ve got a nice private rent on a three-bed house, we’ve bought cars and I’ve had my boobs done.”
Stockham’s family and partner are so supportive of her work that they even joined in and held a few sessions of their own with clients.
“My family knows what I do,” Stockham says. “They’re fine with it.”
