Behind the Scenes | Melissa Sweet
A look at some of the amazing business people who are proud to call themselves adult.
Melissa Sweet is an absolute legend. Melissa is based in the US so we don’t get to hang out as much as we would like, but we first met Melissa at one of the adult conferences earlier this year. Melissa is a performer (cams), she is a fetishist, she is a talented artist and most of all she is a an absolute ‘sweet’heart — see what we did there, it is her surname…
One of the things we love the most about Melissa is that being a performer she understands all of the issues that the industry face because she confronts them daily but Melissa is also a crypto nut so she really gets intimate.
Melissa has been into Bitcoin for the last 3 years — she got into the market when bitcoin was around $250 (today it is currently hovering around $9K). So next time someone from GenPop (the general non-adult, non-crypto population) asks me “Will sex workers and pornstars even understand crypto” I am going to send them straight to Melissa who can give them a schooling I’m sure they’ll remember.
Tell us a little about how you got started in adult?
MS: I was watching anepisode of Family Guy, and Lois was a phone sex line operator. I was really hard up for money and thought to myself, I wonder if
that’s lucrative? I searched for phone operators and I found camgirls on Myfreecams.com. As soon as I discovered what a camgirl was, I was signing up to become one!
Favourite aspect of the industry?
MS: Freedom! I have the ability to choose what type of content I create, who I work with and the control how many hours I put in.
Biggest myth about the industry you would like to dispel?
MS: I think many people have the misconception that sex workers are doing this against their will. I have never done anything as a sex worker that has gone against my own personal beliefs. I am proud of what I do!
Favourite performer and/or favourite site and why?
MS: I have such a long list of performers I admire, Sophia Locke is one. I have always been loyal to MyFreeCams.com because that is where it all began for me in the adult entertainment industry.
What do you think the biggest benefit of crypto for adult is?
MS: The ability to send peer to peer money internationally without the large percentage of fees for me to pay. I believe cryptocurrency will bring many positive and innovative things in the adult industry!
