Eevie—like many of the models I spoke to for this article—broadcasts herself through the site My Free Cams, or MFC.
Earlier this year, an Oregon State University student was caught broadcasting from the school library, and now MFC no longer allows its models to cam in public.
But almost three years later, visitors to Eevie's room still ask for the coffee stand. He replies in the group chat box: "i haven't been around all day but Sarah has been watching." I ask Eevie who Sarah is, and she says that's Boggers's wife.
They watched me, sometimes together and sometimes separate." When the couple finally got pregnant and received the results of the gender test, "They made a video of them opening the envelope together and sent it to me that day, and they named their little girl Eevie Juliet." It's not that crazy to imagine this kind of intimacy and fondness developing between long-distance friends over years—what's surprising is that these connections grew out of a form of sex work.
But this level of emotional investment is exactly where the appeal of webcams resides—it's not like any other kind of porn.
Right now, Eevie's goal topic is taking off her dress, and most of the tips coming in are for her topic of drinking wine.
