Nikki Lotus is the owner and operator of Sin City Vixens (a cam studio) in Las Vegas, Nevada. She just recently opened Sin City Vixens (@SinCityVixens) in January 2016, but her knowledge is beyond overwhelming. Through the magic of the Adult Webcam Awards (@AdultCamAwards) we connected due to Sammy Brooks (@SammyBrooks69), who I have to thank for opening my eyes to just how large the webcam industry truly is.
“Webcam changed my life, I have learned about people and just how diverse men and women are. I never thought I would learn as much as I have about fetishes. However, if it was not for webcam I never would have become an organizer for the Adult Webcam Awards.” ~Sammy Brooks (@SammyBrooks69)
Before entering the adult industry, Nikki Lotus (@SinCityVixens) was a Director of Surgery in New York. This explains her attention to detail and her ability to run a business within the adult industry in such a professional manner. Never, in my almost decade in the adult industry, have I met someone with such attention to detail while being a people person at the same time with a business mind. She is someone who has succeeded in the webcam industry and is now helping others to succeed in the freedoms that come along with being a webcam model.
“Sin City Vixens has made me more patient, centered, to be able to handle each situation, in the most positive and productive way.” ~Nikki Lotus (@SinCityVixens)
There is so much opportunity for the new girls to make money and/or a career with webcam work, even setting their own personal limits and hours. However, rarely do webcam models have someone to help and mentor them. Well this is what Nikki Lotus does. She shares her wisdom with a loving yet tough approach. Webcam girls are more prevalent than most would guess. However, their success rates vary so much due to so many factors. Nikki Lotus shows girls, women, and TGirls how to be successful while giving them a safe place to be, around people who care about their well-being.
“Sin City Vixens has made me responsible enough to actually get up and go to work everyday.” ~Khloe (@The_Real_Khlo)
Nikki Lotus goes as far as providing vitamins, over the counter medications, low-cost doctor visits, to food high in protein, so the girls who work for Sin City Vixens know they have a safe and healthy workplace. A place to escape to put on their alter ego and go to war for their financial well-being uninterrupted. Significant others often get in the way of doing cam work from home. Therefore, webcam studios aid in the comfort level and ability to work distraction free. Nikki Lotus is very aware that it only takes one tiny thing or interaction to ruin a work day in the webcam world and this may carryover to personal life as well. Therefore, keeping everyone positive and happy is the goal for everyone to make more money and be as successful as possible.
“Sin City Vixens changed my life by helping me get back on my feet and giving me a place to work that I actually love and where I am surrounded by people that are like family.” ~Lynda (@LyndaSinnXXX)
The webcam industry has gotten a bad wrap for being sleazy not only in mainstream America, but even within the adult industry. However, after talking with two transgender webcam models(TGirls) who were amazingly kind and open I learned differently. This was a rare opportunity due to most webcam studios not allowing TGirls in their studios. A big thank you to @The_Real_Khlo and @KayoFlamez for being so patient and open-minded about my lack of knowledge.
I learned about 90% of the time webcam models are on cam they are not doing anything sexual. This was shocking, but also eye-opening. People have a need for intimacy and the webcam industry is a niche serving that need 24/7, 365 days a year. The webcam industry is a billion dollar industry. Simple economics, but yet in a more controlled environment than other niches of the adult industry.
“Caming is the future of the adult industry,” Nikki Lotus (@SinCityVixens)
Sin City Vixens does not charge any fees to the girls working in the studio and it is female owned and operated thus making it extremely rare and/or a one of a kind webcam studio. Also, Nikki Lotus allows TGirls in her studio which adds to the diversity, understanding, and tolerance of the environment at Sin City Vixens. Everyone has their own version of “normal” at Sin City Vixens. They work with people worldwide who have to hide what they love, only to get instant gratification online with a side of shame.
“Hiding what makes you happy does not get you happiness!” ~ZiFi
With all the new technology coming out, Sin City Vixens is already incorporating virtual reality into their studio, which will be up and running by this August. Thus, the webcam industry is not going anywhere. The thing about people who rely on the internet for income is they change with the times and quickly in order to stay on top.
Evolution within the adult industry is in the making!
