Are camgirls soon to be replaced by robots?

Camgirling has taken off in recent years and many performers are involved in it, with more and more signing up to camming platforms each year. But isn’t this sector already evolving too quickly? Will robots replace camgirls soon?

The Minitel (for those who knew it) and the pink phone have been replaced by porn streaming over the years. And the latter is itself being replaced little by little by camgirls and camboys, with live shows, the possibility of direct exchanges and seeing your own fantasies come true on demand. So naturally people would say that camming has a bright future ahead of it. But this doesn’t take robots into account. Thanks to virtual reality, they really can  accomplish everything, even the impossible. It’s therefore a legitimate question to ask: are robots going to put camgirls out of work? 

 

Chaturbate, first to launch sexy 3D avatars 

Camming platforms innovate through the services offered to their members, and go even further with sometimes surprising projects. This is the case of Chaturbate with the ProjektMelody, which they present via one of their avatars: 

“A year ago, I was just a PC cleaning software. Life was quietly going on until I opened a suspicious email… In an instant, my code was corrupted by a porn virus. It was as if I had been struck by a lightning bolt. I woke up, thirsty for sex.” 

An extract from the project presentation which speaks volumes. And to support her words, the robot (or Melody for friends), plays on her charms and claims to be the first hentai camgirl in the world. This super sexy 3D avatar, strongly reminiscent of Japanese manga, wiggles and undulates in front of the camera and caresses herself live for a handful of bitcoins. Like the virtual Youtuber Kizuna AI, this avatar is manipulated in real time by a human operator.

On Chaturbate, her location is listed as “Virtual Little Tokyo,” and under smoking and drinking preferences, “literally impossible.” Her date of birth is listed as July 7, 2000, but more specifically, Melody was born in July 2019, whenProjektMelody ajoined Twitter.

 

An immediate resounding success

If you doubted that this 3D robot could be successful with Internet users, you would be surprised. According to Motherboard, this kind of sexy digital puppet would have gained thousands of followers in just a few days (almost 15,000 in 3 days on Chaturbate and 700 to +20,000 on Twitter). This might be worrying for camgirls and camboys who spend time behind their camera to earn a living. Because the avatar never gets tired and can be permanently online. And then nothing hurts or annoys her. Unlike a real human being, which is worrying because it could release some really dark fantasies.

Still in Motherboard, one of them known as Lennox May, expresses her concerns: “There is a huge gap in terms of vulnerability […]. A model has to keep face when faced with trolls. Or when she is in an uncomfortable situation. As the client asks her to do things she does not feel comfortable doing.”

A freedom that could become dangerous and allow some to cross the red line. And then dehumanizing this service can be at risk for those who already find it difficult to respect the women and men working in the erotic sector. Why have respect for a robot? It’s just a robot… at the risk of confusing reality and virtual in the long run.
