COVID secure coworking spaces have arrived.
Adult webcam company CamSoda has launched pop-up studios for “cam girls” so they can have a workspace where they don’t have to worry about disturbing roommates or family with their work. potentially loud and erotic.
A trial for the concept was recently opened in Medellin, Colombia, where lockdown orders are still in place. CamSoda took advantage of the hard-hit real estate market and converted one of the city’s many empty warehouses into studios with individual disinfected capsules. Models go through a temperature check before entering, and pods feature a laptop, bed or sofa, and webcam. They are cleaned after each use.
“The quarantine over the past few months has been incredibly difficult for all of us. And for many of our models, it was particularly difficult to find a place to cam, ”said Daryn Parker, vice president of CamSoda, in a press release.
Camming was one of the few professions that could continue and thrive during the coronavirus pandemic by nature to be ideal for remote working, making it one of the only forms of adult entertainment capable of producing smoothly. security of new equipment since March. But for cam girls who don’t live alone, the quarantine posed a unique work-life balance challenge.
“There has been a surge in traffic to adult cam sites, as well as a large influx of new models looking for ways to make money while staying socially aloof,” Parker said. “These models, both veteran and newcomer, have children, spouses, parents and roommates who are now at home 24/7, and it has become almost impossible for them to broadcast. in private without interruption. “
Before the pandemic, the company hosted sex workers at its CamSoda home. Due to the social configuration of the space, with artists often mingling between shifts, CamSoda decided to give the new pop-up pod model a try.
Following its success in Colombia, CamSoda is preparing to launch co-working cam modules in the United States, starting with states hard hit by COVID-19, including Florida, California, Texas and Arizona.
