Since the early days of live Internet broadcasts by Ringley and Amanda, the phenomenon of camming has grown to become a multibillion-dollar industry which has an average of at least 12,500 cam models online at any given time and more than 240,000 viewers at any given time.Camming websites typically fall into two main categories, dependent upon whether their video chat rooms are free or private.

When webcam models create their live Internet broadcasts, they perform the activity known as camming.

A third-party hosting website which transmits multiple webcam models' video-streams is known as a camming site.

The websites provide the transactional platform, and then collects and distributes a percentage of the tips to the models.

For public chat rooms, the model's portion of a tip is a little less than half.

However this is not the first time that conversational interaction had become a boon for the erotic entertainment industry.

The Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theatre strip club is credited with the invention of the lap dance when during 1977 their new stage, New York Live, pioneered customer-contact shows with strippers that came off the stage and sat in the laps of customers for tips.

Tips are electronic tokens that viewers can buy from a camming website, and then give to the models during live performances.

The tokens can also be used to buy videos or souvenirs of the model.

Similar camming sites such as Chaturbate, Cam4and My Free boast 4.1 million, 3.7 million and 2 million unique monthly visitors, respectively.
