The camming conundrum

Main Entry: co搖un搞rum
Pronunciation: k&-'n&n-dr&m
Function: noun
Etymology: origin unknown
1 : a riddle whose answer is or involves a pun
2 a : a question or problem having only a conjectural answer b : an intricate and difficult problem

I am going with 2b for my definition.......

Ok, got that out of the way. Last night I fired up my camera with this nickname... the problem with doing that is that I can't view cameras since this is a standard membership.

My silly thought was that someone from the blogs that new the nickname would see it and come say hello.

Problem #1 - there were over 200 guys broadcasting at the time.

Problem #2 - I blocked single men from viewing me, sorry, have no interest in being hit on by men, nothing against you guys but I get tired of saying 'no, not going to drop my pants for you.'

Problem #3 - My camera and AdultFriendFinder don't seem to get along, so getting the broadcast working was tough, but i did manage to get it so I was actually broadcasting an image AND listed on the camming list.

Needless to say I had one person that I saw try to view me, and it was a guy so he never got connected. Meanwhile there were women with 500 people viewing them - lol.

I do sometimes long for the days of Cuseeme when you could go from room to room chatting and there would actually be several women in a room. Even better was way back in the dark age - pre IM programs where the only way to communicate was in the chat window.

Today there are still programs such as cuseeme, many are pay only, and of course you can in theory cam one on one with friends IF you both have cameras you know how to use and are both on at the same time and the planets align.

Why am I saying all this? Hmmmm good quesiton. Just to the ladies - check out the guy cameras from time to time - I doubt many of you are looking for the 'cock cams' and I can promise you you won't see mine if I am on - lol.

and for those women that do cam, how the hell do you decide among 500 guys who wo IM with? I have only managed to IM with ONE person camming on here and that was someone I knew from the blogs - I feel foolish competing with 500 others for someone's attention yet it seems to be the only option....


good lord this post is all over the map....

I hate mis-spellings... I know it is KNEW not NEW (3rd or 4th paragraph).

I'll fix it later - but if I fix it now the post will go back into never never land for another few hours.

Being standard does have its drawbacks. Many of the profiles are even off limits. Has it always been like this on AdultFriendFinder?
Papy - (I'll probably get ostracized for this one, but hey) So let's you watch the whole show of 4 guys, what's your point (sorry this is on your post Nick)

reisen..... I dunno - I know that if you had a female profile you could look and and message all other profiles (gee - think maybe a bunch of us guys made up female profiles so we could cruise?) - now I am not so sure, I too can view some profiles with my standard membership, I am sure there is some logic to it but I am clueless as to what that might be.

waggypolly, actually I normally am not a voyeur, I like to chat with cams, and usually with both cams pointed at our respective faces...... not gonna say I haven't watched people here, I have, and enjoyed it, but I would still like to be able to turn on my camera and chat now and again. As for aking a woman to cam elsewhere, see ya have to be able to ask them, and being as most women camming here have 100-500 people viewing them, its hard to get a word in edgewise

Sexy, From my perspective - being the doubtng Thomas I am, the camera is one more bit of proof that the person on the other end of the net is actually a female (although even that is not 100% proof as I have learned).

Don't forget there are a lot of guys out there that want to be seen by other guys. You are very much correct though in your feeling that mean in general are more interested in the visual where women go for the written/mental - which is why I think you find a much more proportionate ratio of men to women here in the blogs

This also, in my opinion, helps explain the abundance of penis pics women are bombarded with - men send women what they themselves want to see - naked body parts.

Very well writen Nick , I must agree, visual is nice sometimes, but mind stimulation is so much more
