It’s a bad day to be a bad girl because a virtual cam girl is now the hottest thing on the market on “chaturbate,” which is some large cam girl website. Here’s Vice with the scoop:
ProjektMelody is a virtual avatar of a woman who claims to be the world’s first hentai camgirl. When she’s not on YouTube, she gives regular, live shows on the camming site Chaturbate, where she dances and fondles herself for tips. She’s not real, but there’s a real person in there somewhere, moving her arms and speaking into a microphone to any of her 14,300 followers currently in the live chat. She only started streaming three days ago.
…In the last three days since her first stream, Melody has gone from 700 Twitter followers to more than 20,000. The “more rooms like this” tab on her Chaturbate page returns an error: “Sorry, we don’t have any rooms similar to projektmelody yet.” That’s because other cam models are human. Her sudden rise in popularity has made some who aren’t working behind a full-body avatar question what place an anime avatar has on the platform.
After taking a look at her Twitter feed and YouTube page, she seems (to me at least) to be modeled on the world’s most famous e-thot, Belle Dellphine. Like Belle, Melody is cutesy-wootsy, anime oriented and teases sex without being overly graphic….and it’s paying off. Not only was she #1 on Chaturbate, but she already has 701 patrons on Patreon chipping in between $1 and $10 each per month. To give you an idea of how fast she’s taking off, when I looked yesterday, that number was in the 400s.
