The Cam Whore is a young lady -- typically pretty and nubile -- who teases willing visitors on her webcam in exchange for goods, typically via their Amazon wish lists. Exactly how much a Cam Whore shows off depends on her propriety and "character", but most seem to make a healthy second income from just showing off their underwear. Charging actual money or going into explicit sex acts takes one out of Cam Whore territory and into the ''actual porn'' bracket.

Incredibly, there is now an entirely virtual version of the Cam Whore thanks to the invention of ''VideoGame/SecondLife'', where people will turn their avatars into virtual strippers or lap dances in exchange for Virtual money (Lindens). This can then be exchanged for real currency.

Not to be confused with the derogatory term for people who like to take photos of themselves (and upload them on the internet) ''way'' too often, or with people who insist on being front-and-center in any picture or video taken in their vicinity.

* It's strongly implied that Mari Gotojuki of ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01'' did this or a toned-down version of it before she was recruited by Neo Saiba.
* In ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'', Chi is tricked into becoming one of these for a time, but ultimately rescued before things get ''too'' explicit.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Kate on ''Series/UnitedStatesOfTara'' briefly becomes this during Season 2.
* Nikki on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' was introduced this way.
* Creator/LouisTheroux visited a camgirl as part of his documentary ''Twilight of the Porn Stars''. The girl in question was also a porn starlett who appeared in conventionally distributed adult films, which is a pretty common form of crossover in the industry.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* This is one of the character classes you can choose to play in ''VideoGame/ForumWarz''.
* Midori (a.k.a. Dolly) from ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor''.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', some players would strip their female Night Elf characters out of their armor and have them sexy dance on top of the Ironforge mailbox for tips.
* The entire ''point'' of ''VideoGame/HuniecamStudio'' is to make a camgirl empire.
* In ''VideoGame/HeroAndDaughter'', one of the recruitable party members, Selphie, is a livestreaming ValleyGirl in an otherwise "[[FantasyKitchenSink vaguely-fantasy-medieval]]" RPGMechanicsVerse. When a viewer asks her to show less cleavage, she's outraged, since that would mean less viewers.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* This is how Roz made a living in ''WebComic/{{Shortpacked}}''. [[spoiler:The reason she ended up moving in with Robin was because one of her viewers found her address.]]
