I’ve always been interested in getting on cam, but never quite pulled the trigger. I ran into a few mental blocks, which stemmed from the pressures I felt about people’s perceptions of gay and bisexual men. Too concerned with what others might think, I forgot to stop and consider that maybe it was all in my head.
There were a few reasons keeping me off cam
Lucky, I managed to work through them, and I’ve explained my reasoning below. Hopefully, it helps you realize something about yourself too!
- Was I fit enough?
There’s a lot of pressure on both men and women to look good. In my opinion, there’s even more pressure on gay and bisexual men to be ripped. Soon enough, I learned that not everyone cares about perfect muscles and that my body was more than enough.
- What would my friends think?
In the back of my mind, I was always worried about what would happen if my friends found out. Well, turns out they don’t care! In fact, they’re all happy for me and completely supportive.
- How would I perform?
The first couple times of being on cam are definitely nerve-wracking, and it takes some consistency before getting used to it. My advice? Just put yourself out there and do it. Soon enough, getting online will be a breeze. You’ll end up having a great time and a lot of fun flirting with the people who stop by your chat room. Visitors only have nice things to say, which makes being on iHeartGuys an even better experience!
At this point, I can confidently say I’m hooked on doing shows. All it takes is a little believing in yourself and a great gay chat community. See you online!
