Vecca Salt did her due diligence before entering the adult industry.
“I’m 38 years old, and I’ve been in the industry since December or 2020 — not even a year on cam,” Salt shared with YNOT Cam.
“I’ve been studying the industry for roughly two years,” she explained. “At first, it was just because I was doing research for stock trading — no joke! After I realized how much capital gain was possible in the industry, I decided to give it a go.”
Read on to lean more about Vecca Salt, who’s both interesting and strategic!
YNOT Cam: Can you tell us a bit about your background?
Vecca Salt: My background is pretty normal. I had a great childhood — Southern girl, moved up north for college on a scholarship, graduated and stayed up here.
I have a great career. I’ve been a martial artist since the age of five, belted in four different arts and continue to teach to this day. I’ve been a personal trainer for almost two decades, and I only have three years left until I receive my doctorate in sports medicine. I love what I do, but I had to make money quick and a large sum. I gave this a shot and it’s been rough, but it’s working.
So, what prompted you to make the jump online?
I started camming because I’m trying to save the life of someone very important that requires stem cell and plasma injections. I’m very open about this when I talk to my fans. Very tough situation. It makes this whole thing quite difficult.
Can you tell us a bot about the ups and downs — as you see them — that come with sex work online?
This industry has tons of ups and downs. One of the biggest downs, out of many, is the fact that people think I’m lying about why I am doing all this. For everybody out there who reads this and knows what it’s like to work with someone who has special needs, I get it.
You see [models] who have epic goals that state they are paying for college, trying to buy their first car, move out of an abusive situation and so on. To all those chicks, rock on. I get it. Nobody has the right to tell us we owe an explanation as to why we do what we do. I have so much respect for everyone in the industry, even people I don’t like. This is a tough gig.
I think for all of the females that do these interviews and chat, we will all say the same thing about one of the worst parts of this industry. The trolling…

That’s definitely a universal struggle if there ever was one in this space – the trolling…
There’s a big difference though between trolls and the people who want to just rip you down because you are competition. It shouldn’t be this way. We need to be lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. Same goes for male models. Same goes for couples. There’s plenty to go around.
There is little to no support systems for models out there. I belong to a discord that is absolutely incredible, then I have a small group on Twitter but beyond that, there is no support system for models.
I’ve had people come in my room, flat out tell me they came to troll me, then say they liked me so they couldn’t. I’ve also had people come in the room, say my first and last name and give out my address and phone number. That’s how serious this can get. There should be more information, continuing education or some type of classes that are available for women getting involved in this business. We need more protection. I cannot stress that enough.
Models need more protection, and it’s getting serious. We just lost someone actually, may she rest in peace, Miss Mercedes Moor. She had a stalker situation, filed complaints with her respective companies, nothing was done and sadly she lost her life. This happened at the end of August, and it really kicked me into high gear when it comes to my love and passion In regard to protecting the rights of women in the workplace.
What do you see unfolding for you in the future?
I don’t plan on webcaming too much longer, but I’m not going to leave this industry. I’ve met incredible people and bottom of the barrel trash. If our companies are not going to protect us and fight for us, then I will. Those who have shown me kindness, I’ve learned their stories and something needs to change.
I would rather be that webcam model on the steps of Congress passing bills to protect performers than on a stage somewhere accepting an award. It’s a personal choice, one sadly that comes from experience, and somebody’s got to do something. I doubt any performers could argue against this. We need to be protected on a variety of levels.
I want to pass laws that protect sex workers, and I’m not going to stop until I succeed. I just haven’t found the right people yet. I’ve started to, and I’m slowly building an incredible circle around me. My passion for this is undying, and it’s not like I’m coming into all this blindsided. It has happened to me.
What happened to me was quite severe and I don’t want to see it happen to anybody else. I’m currently working with a few state legislators to assist me in moving forward with three different protective works that I would love to see pass. It is one of the main things I would like to see happen in the world today.
Can you tell us about how you might incorporate martial arts into all of this?
Martial arts, women’s self-defense and another project I have that is up and coming! I started Kung Fu at five years old… I’ve been teaching women’s self-defense for 14 years. One of the website streaming companies, they were supposed to have this big show that demonstrated women self-defense and it failed. So I have taken it upon myself to try to do my own.
It is my belief that the females in this industry should know self-defense. If no one is going to help them and teach them, then I’ll step up and do it. I have the credentials and the background. I’m ready to go and I just need someone to point me in the right direction. If you are a martial artist reading this, you understand the type of discipline and honor we have in what we do. I’m very proud of my martial arts background. I would love nothing more than to share it with others in the hopes that it would result in avoiding these situations where one could be injured while performing.

Any closing thoughts you’d like to share?
There’s a huge misconception about webcaming. You don’t have to take your clothes off. Now, is it going to make things more difficult? Possibly. There are chicks who do things with just their hands, keep their faces out of the screens, only show their feet, don’t take clothes off at all and only blow kisses or whatever. They rock their shows and more power to them.
I work out a lot during my shows. I do offer classes for models, but only two really participate on the regular. That’s something I would love to do for the future, classes for models for fitness and health, nutrition and all that good stuff. I strive to get people to work out with me, providing a very direct and robotic instructional class where I attempt to teach yoga. It’s comical and I’m laughing as I say this, but I really do wish more people would get up in the morning and work out with me.
Starting your day off with exercise, getting that circulation moving and that boost of endorphins can change your whole day.
