Webcam sex sites cash in during lockdown

By Marcel Gascón

Bucharest, May 6 (efe-epa).- Lockdowns triggered by the pandemic have devastated many economic sectors around the world, but webcam sex sites have seen demand double in recent weeks.

According to a market study by SkyPrivate, an online platform that connects adult studios and webcam models with clients, there are between 100,000 and 300,000 models in Romania who offer their services via video link.

The Balkan country is one of the three top global powers of the sector, along with the United States and Colombia, according to the report.

“I think we are seeing a record high for both registered subscribers and models because people are at home and spend more time on the Internet,” says Ionut Militaru, head of the video chat agency Unique Studio in Bucharest.

“User traffic has grown 100 percent, although revenues do not necessarily reflect this increase,” says Militaru, who started as a video chat model for adults when she was 18 and at 32 is a veteran who knows the sector well.

“Many subscribers are locked up in their homes with their families and cannot connect as many hours as when they accessed webcam sites from work or in a hotel room during professional trips,” he explains.

His wife Cristina says there has been an explosion of consumption among users who do not face any obstacles.

She says there has been a 50 percent increase in revenues, an upward trend two other video chat studios and digital platforms that offer advertising opportunities to agencies and adult webcam models, confirmed.

“A subscriber who normally spent three or four hours is now connected up to ten hours, even 14 hours,” says Cristina Militaru, 33, who continues to model in her studio.
