Anonymous asked: What made you choose ELM and C4S over sites like, say, MyGirlFund? What kind of pros outweighed the cons? I know you don't like to answer questions about this but I'm unsure as to a couple of things, I'm trying to make a pros/cons list

sterlingsea:

nah it’s cool - I don’t mind answering specific questions like these!

the answer is a tiny bit long.

when I first started selling videos, I sold on ELM and MyGirlFund. I sold on those because I saw other GodsGirls models selling there.

I quit MyGirlFund because

  1. I’m terrible at interacting with shitty customers on a one on one basis like that - if someone pisses me off by trying to push me past my boundaries, underpay me, or communicate poorly and blame it on me I’m going to tear their head off. Which led to loss of sales.
  2. People were more interested in custom videos than my premade videos, and I prefer to have one or two clients for custom videos at a time. Not ten.
  3. Time wasters and scammers were overabundant on MGF. As in 2/3 of clients I interacted with were trying to milk me for freebies or were trying to scam me. With other sites, it’s more like 1/10.
  4. Camming was hella sketch, so I never used it as a camsite. 

I found out waaaay more shit about MGF after I quit

  • They advertise with photos of models that don’t even work for them
  • They always, always favor the customer in case of a scam. Even if that scam left the model bald (srsly google that it’s a trip). 
  • They don’t care if customers stalk you (has happened).
  • They don’t care if customers blackmail you (has happened).
  • They don’t care if customers threaten your family’s lives (has happened).
  • They will not allow you to protect your identity by covering or not showing your face (it’s not always something that works, but a model should have that choice).
  • They change their policies without a forewarning or even updating you after.
  • They will ban you if you complain about any of this
  • And after they ban you, you don’t get any of the money you earned if you didn’t cash out first.
  • Basically check out this blog

I still know people who use MGF and are fine, it’s just that there are a lot more risks to navigate compared to other sites.

Why I’m still with ELM

  1. Weekly payouts! (Monthly or bimonthly is the norm)
  2. If I don’t want to do any custom work, I don’t have to
  3. I can sell anything if I want to. Not anything, but I can sell physical goods (I’ve seen panties, socks, posters, polaroids, pubic hair and things that are probably illegal to ship but hey that’s not my business), scripts and erotic stories, skype cam shows, custom videos, and pictures in the same place.
  4. Virtual marketplace - although it’s a bit hard to compete with everything advertised in one place, I know I don’t need an outside fanbase for my content to be seen
  5. Option to post videos for resale or forbid resale
  6. Can run sales
  7. Can schedule content release

Things I don’t like about ELM

  1. People price their goods too low, puts pressure on you to sell low too
  2. Your inbox is flooded with irrelevant notifications, making it hard to keep up with real messages from buyers
  3. They use a credit/token system. No one likes this. Everyone hates this. 

Why I’m using C4S

  1. Legit company. They’re huge, and have been around for a long long time. They have their shit together.
  2. A tiny bit outdated, but not complicated.
  3. Pay is always on time.
  4. Huuuge market. Even if I never advertise that I put up a new video, it will always be purchased several times over.
  5. If I don’t want anyone to contact me, I won’t be contacted. It’s my choice to put my contact information on my store (honestly there are months where I don’t want to do custom content outside of one or two regulars. no one can ask me for free videos or try to scam me or annoy me if they can’t contact me).
  6. Can schedule content release
  7. Tribute option for tips! Yay!

Other sites that I know about:

  1. Kinkbomb - I looked at it once. It looked just like Clipvia but with fewer buyers.
  2. Clipvia - I have a store but had issues with the site (mostly problems uploading). I’ve also heard they pay late on a regular basis and site’s support is shitty. I may try it out more, but it will never be the main source of my income
  3. Rude - no. just don’t use it. no. I tried, once. it’s awful, complicated, outdated, and requires you to do things like film a free video and post pictures of various parts of your body for free. I spent an entire day on it and I never got finished with their requirements.

Hope that helped!

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

In spring of last year I recorded some bass for a song on my friends Lexi and James’ new Lillian Gish album. They’d already been working on it on and off for some time and at that point they were sure it was nearly finished. I was blown away from what I heard of it back then. Now it’s over a year later and it’s finally finished! It’s amazing!!! Give it a listen! They’ve put their heart and soul into it and come up with something only they could make. I’m on track 11.
Tracklisting:
1. And Sing Do the Ghosts of New Amsterdam 02:21
2. The Critic 05:39



3. Take 01:03

4. Dead Leaves 05:01
5. Requiem For Lizzie Harts 05:01

6. And Sing Do the Ghosts of New Amsterdam, Part Two 02:54

Lets do an experiment: reblog if you would feel safer hanging out with trans women (regardless of what genitals they currently posses) than Cis women who are transphobic and deny trans women’s obvious womanhood.

re-reblogging because duh
