When in comes to being original in 2018, how do you even do it – especially when it feels like everyone is already doing everything?
Work makes it even more complex. On cam, when we’re all surrounded by sexuality and everything related to sexuality and sensuality is so open and out there, how do you separate yourself as a woman and as a performer? What more can you take off? Or, leave on?
I’ve looked to the #girlsfromstudio20 in search for answers regarding how to be an original camgirl in 2018.
“You have to be unforgettable,” Ava Mistique said.
“I know that I’m a sexual being, and I’m aware of how I look. I know that I’m sexy, and I ooze sex,” she continued. “But the reason [I’m unforgettable] is not the big boobs, the big ass or the foot play. It’s what I give them. It’s me.”
According to Mistique, “I make myself unforgettable by never trying to be like anybody else. I see a lot of women and cam models that get boob jobs, ass jobs and fake everything in the hopes that they’ll be unforgettable. They’re walking sticks. They don’t tell you anything. Me: I have my quirks, my craziness, the way I laugh, the way I sing along the lyrics with the singer. And that’s what people remember about me. It’s that, not the effin’ breast size. I’m trying to educate people about that, about what makes us unforgettable as women. It’s our quirks.”

So, to be original, you need to be unforgettable, meaning you have to leave your mark – but what else?
“Your body language says so much about you, you don’t even know it,” Aubrey Novaa explained.
“I can wear whatever stupid outfit I want. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pair of jeans and a t-shirt that says ‘fuck off,’ I can make it look sexy. I can wear a long dress that you would’ve never thought can be trashy and make it look dirty-sexy. It’s all in the body movement,” she added.
Novaa commented on the trend of certain looks and the spaces said looks seem to always occupy on the internet.
“I see a lot of girls posing in the same way on Instagram and in their pics on LiveJasmin — with their eyes constantly looking down, with those big lips and Instagram brows. I’m bored of those. I’m mostly smiling and choosing weird poses, depending on my mood, on my outfit and on the theme of the photo shoot,” Novaa said.

She continued: “Every year there’s a new trend: looking at the shoes, picture from behind, smile covered by hair, hand on the hip, both hands on the waist, etc. You know what I’m talking about. If you want to leave a mark, stop trying to look up pics of sexy poses on Pinterest. Why don’t you look in the mirror, see what outfit fits youbest, try yourbest angles. Stop trying to fit it. Stand out, take chances, don’t wear sexy lingerie just because you saw a girl wear it — wear whatever you feel sexy in. I find myself feeling the sexiest when I wear a pair of shorts and a bra or a big fluffy sweater.”
Saemi Royal said that, “Being unforgettable and original is so simple: have that one thing that is yours. Even if we’re talking about a scent, about the shape of your nails, about your eyeliner, about the way you play with your hair — make sure you have something that’s you.
“Yes, there’s a big chance that a lot of women will have almond shaped nails, but they’re not you,” she added. “If those nails fit you, they’re you. Being original is making yourself hard to forget.”
So let’s review — For one to be original, one has to adapt the environment to herself, not the other way around.
Every inch of you is special and unique. If you’re trying to be original and come up with something new, all you need to do is clean your mirror a bit, and let your personality shin. See your best angles, learn to work them and just smile. In a world that has forgotten how to smile, you go and do it.
