Though it's tastefully shot and insightful in the treatment of its subject, Cam Girlz contains scenes of a sexual nature and viewer discretion is advised. The film is directed by Sean Dunne, the author of American Juggalo and Florida Man.
There's the former pizza restaurant manager who struggled to make ends meet, and despaired over spending more time at her job than at home with her husband and small child. There's the young woman who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, but nevertheless exudes the free-spirited exhibitionist tendencies of an erotic entertainer behind closed doors. There's the ambitious entrepreneur who is driven to market her most precious commodity - herself - to financial independence.
Each of these ladies make their living off the lens of a webcam, providing flirtations and amorous distractions to eager clients over an internet connection. Many of them are defined by a unique beauty you don't see on the covers of mainstream magazines; they're the brand of authenticity that could live across the street, and they appeal to the desires of those who seek a genuine encounter where sexuality is offered without discrimination or shallow judgments.
Cam Girlz takes us into the private lives and thriving home businesses of these women, and works to remove societal barriers by allowing us to recognize ourselves in their shared drive for success, self-fulfillment and security. We see them relating to their husbands, boyfriends and family members. We're also presented with a perspective of the men who watch and interact with these women on the other side of the camera lens.
Many of the women in the film were raised to believe that overt displays of sexuality were inappropriate and unbecoming. Their individual paths to enlightenment are fascinating to observe, and they find their fullest expression in front of the camera. It is there that they feel most empowered to break the chains of oppression by embracing one of the most important aspects of human need. For them, erotic performance is not an act; it is about existing fully in your own skin and being honest about who you are.
Their office is a laptop, and their business is the art of seduction. They're the Cam Girlz, and they're ushering in a new age of sexual expression.
