On a good night, “Bridget Grey” can make up to $60 an hour stripping online. Then, after she shuts off the camera and steps away from her computer, she opens Snapchat and other messaging apps to continue working.
Bridget (her stage name) is a live-cam model who specializes in “findom,” a fetish involving financial domination. As a professional dominatrix, she says she’s there for men when they need to lose control.
The almost-21-year old has been stripping for private audiences primarily on ImLive and MyFreeCams, porn sites dedicated to webcam performances. But, like other online personalities who want to make it big, Bridget is learning that she needs to expand her digital footprint.
The popularity of messaging apps is giving her many new opportunities to succeed.
“You have to stay on top of it to create a bigger [fan] base,” Bridget said about all of the emerging apps. “Everybody is going to start using them.”
