As any cam performer knows, variety is the spice of life. Or, rather, offering your fans a variety of options means the difference between making or not making money.
And Lovense is here to help. But I don’t mean “under the table” where you have to play detective to find out which of their toys work with sites like Chaturbate, how to use them in your shows, or what to do when something goes wrong.
Nope, Lovense is out, proud, and wonderfully supportive of cam performers, dedicating an entire section of their site to answering your questions, providing handy tips and suggestions, and umpteen FAQs on what to do if you run into any problems.
To help you navigate the use of smart sex tech toys in your shows, here’s a quick breakdown of setting up your toys, games you can play with them and your fans, the importance of security, and other tips and tricks so you can stand out from other cam performers.
And make money, of course.
Lovense and cam performers: a match made in heaven
No hyperbole; when using their Bluetooth-enabled toys for Chaturbate or other cam sites, Lovense really does have your back.
And front. And sides. And everywhere else, for that matter.
For instance, did you know you can use several of their toys in a room, each programmed to activate for a set amount of time for a certain number of tips so you can have your Osci 2 ready, willing, and able to respond for a few seconds or a few minutes when someone pays you the right amount of tips?
You can also create customized alerts, posts, or messages to let everyone know when any of your Lovense toys gets turned on, letting fans know when they’re the highest tipper, or use sexy prompts to encourage them to keep paying.
All and more compliments of Lovense’s SmartCam software. You can download it right now as part of a bundle including Lovense Connect, their own browser, and the OBS Toolset—for free!
Know your cam platform
Like how no two sites look or have the same type of content, they’re often very different regarding what kind of shows you can do on them.
Fortunately, major players like the titular Chaturbate like to stay at the forefront technology-wise, so using Lovense sex toys or their cam performance supporting software won’t be difficult.
This may not be the case for other sites. So it’s worth your while to check out what platforms you’re currently on and whether or not they can handle Lovense interactivity.
Thankfully, Lovense has a handy-dandy list of where their technology is compatible.
Sites like the following:
If any of your sites isn’t on this list, and unless it’s actually prohibited, you can always entice your fans with the possibility of controlling one of your toys sans SmartCam by using the Lovense Remote app to generate a single-use, limited-time access key.
Know your hardware
That basic level of interactivity requires only a compatible Android or Apple smartphone or tablet.
Though there’s a Lovense Remote version for Macintosh or PC, as well. If that is, the latter is Bluetooth-equipped.
And a Windows computer is what you’ll need to run SmartCam and Lovense’s other cam performance-enhancing software.
This shouldn’t come as too great a surprise as though Apple is gaining ground; for cam performers, it’s pretty much a Windows PC and nothing else world.
Not that Macintosh users are left out in the cold. Case in point, Lovense’s specially designed browser is runnable on both systems, as is their Chrome or Firefox extension.
There are also versions of their SplitCam and OBS Toolsets that work on both, except for Streamster, which is PC only.
Know your software
You probably already know about the Lovense Remote app, which is fine for the kind of somewhat limited customer interactivity I previously suggested.
But if you want to really entice your fans while making your job as a performer far easier, you’ll need the Lovense Cam Bundle.
Or, more precisely, the Lovense SmartCam part for putting together a multi-toy tipping system, sending automatic messages or posts, and hosting private virtual sessions.
Not to mention Lovense’s Keno and Dice games you can stream and your fans can play—with the winners triggering your toy or toys to do their oh-so-very sexy.
And if you’re on more than one platform, that’s where the Streamster Toolset or SplitCam Toolset comes in for sharing your content across multiple sites.
Rounding up the bunch is the OBS Toolset for visually enhancing your shows. But you’ll have to download OBS Studio for Apple, PC, or Linx OBS before you can use it.
Setting up your Lovense show
I know this is a lot to absorb, especially if you’re somewhat inexperienced. But before you start banging your head against the nearest wall, allow me to make a few suggestions.
Like, don’t assume you’re all on your lonesome. Lovense has an impressive array of written and even video guides on every aspect of using their toys and software for your shows.
While it may sound overly simple, you can head off many potential problems by first taking a good, hard look at your hardware.
Particularly your computer and its operating system will be the backbone of your cam performer enterprise. Your smartphone, too, unless you’re not going to use it as a bridge between a Lovense toy and your PC.
Another, if not the most important thing to evaluate, is the speed and quality of your Internet. Yes, it also sounds obvious, but it’s your bread and butter.
Because despite how many interactive sextoy opportunities you promote, the number of enthusiastic performances you put on, how exhaustively you promote yourself, or the time dedicated to fostering relationships with your fans, it’s all worth zilch if you can’t get online or if your shows are a jerky, low-resolution mess.
Connecting your Lovense Toy
If your computer’s up to date, and your Internet is fast and high quality, all you need to get your interactive show on the road is to link up your Lovense toy(s).
Thankfully, it’s easy if you’ve already familiar with the Lovense Remote smartphone app.
But for the uninitiated, power up your Lovense toy or put it on Bluetooth standby mode. Next, locate it via Lovense Remote on whatever computer you’re using, connect it to their cam-supporting browser, then log on to its extension so the start-up wizard can work its magic.
Then, lo and behold, you’re on your way towards combining all the sexy goodness of your Lovense toys with your shows.
If you run into any problems, Lovense is there for you with step-by-step directions doing this and a whole lot more for whatever computer, software, smartphone, or set-up you have.
How to make some extra cash thanks to Lovense
What if your fans want to interact with you but don’t have their own Lovense toys? Then encourage them to—and make some money in the process!
As Lovense has its own affiliate program, which you absolutely, positively must sign up for because after you do, you’ll get nifty promotional materials and a juicy percentage of every product someone buys using your affiliate link.
Suppose your fans feel generous or want you to use a toy you don’t yet own. In that case, you can create a Lovense wishlist—yet another great way to have some of those affiliate dollars coming your way.
The only question remaining is—after dealing with potential computer or Internet issues, familiarizing yourself with Lovense’s software, and taking their toys out for an interactive test drive—what do you do with it all?
Harkening back to my opening paragraph, offering your fans a variety of things to watch and do is crucial to becoming a successful cam performer. This is where Lovense lets you give your fans what they want.
But SmartCam and the rest are merely tools, and if you use them the same way every other cam performer does, you’ll probably get lost in the crowd.
Instead, think outside the box. Like asking your fans what they want you to do with your interactive toys or making it a contest with the sexiest idea receiving a prize.
Or have them join in on the fun by asking them to show what they like to do with their Max 2, Calor, or Diamo—with another extra-exciting reward for the best performance?
Demonstrations are also a fantastic way to turn lurkers into paying fans, so why not become a sextoy reviewer?
Ask them to buy you something from your Lovense wishlist, earning you some lovely affiliate bucks, and then have a special show where you’ll share just how fun it is—with perhaps the fan who bought it joining with their own interactive toy?
Lovense is absolutely the bee’s knees for superbly made, amazing smart sex toys and the go-to place for cam performers looking to add interactivity to their shows.
But remember to exercise your erotic imagination, too, as Lovense plus creativity times determination is what will equal cam performer dollars!
