Although she declines to discuss the details, Mazzei also says she was sexually abused when she was younger and suffered from trauma as a result.

Mazzei was envious — & inspired. After all, she was young & attractive sầu, with a form size 2 body and 32B breasts.

After a little research, Mazzei found a platform called My Free Cams, where viewers could watch “for free” & tip “when they wanted.” She studied other camgirls lớn get a sense of how they acted & what people liked. She came up with the persona of Una — a slightly goofy, nerdy character who wasn’t afraid to lớn bare it all.

“It was a combination of a fantasy of who I wanted khổng lồ be, plus the results of my retìm kiếm as khổng lồ which cam girls were the most popular,” she says. The pseudonym Una came from its singularity, & just like her real name was unusual và made up of three letters.

Even with a few technical glitches, Mazzei’s premiere was a soaring success. Visitors were intoxicated by her offbeat humor và, of course, the strategic close-ups. She earned $450 that first night.

‘I’m proud of my sex work. It’s something I celebrate.’

“Here they were, hundreds of eyeballs glued khổng lồ my every move sầu. I was Queen Seductress, và I had found my people,” she writes of that first performance.

In one show, she sat in a foam-filled bathtub wearing a nội y và sailor hat, as her online visitors paid money khổng lồ pick which scrap of fabric should be discarded first.

She found that she got a kiông chồng out of manipulating and controlling the mostly male audience who communicated with her via texted chatlines.

They certainly were generous. As Una, Mazzei raked in as much as $15,500 per month & some six figures a year. She drove sầu two BMWs, rented a luxury apartment in a trendy part of Boulder, Coloravì chưng, and had a manicurist on-call.

To keep business booming, she diversified her act to include girl-on-girl shows and BDSM — a highly lucrative area, she says. She even made an in-person appearance at a porn convention in Las Vegas, where she signed autographs for adoring fans.

It wasn’t all about the money và fame. Mazzei says sex work boosted her self-esteem — &, on a deeper màn chơi, helped her reframe her complex relationship with her sexuality. She discovered how she could control others with her sensuality & body toàn thân. Camming, along with therapy, helped her khuyễn mãi giảm giá with her past trauma from sexual abuse.

Of course, her unusual career had its disadvantages. She had lớn keep her work a secret from her family, and it took a toll on her toàn thân. The most lucrative sầu time for camming was during the night, so she kept weird hours, sleeping most days until 6 p.m. This meant she neglected her real-life friendships because of their opposite schedules — and leaned more heavily on the attention of her online followers. Not all of them were kind, either: A handful of trolls called her “fat,” và one illegally posted her camming videos lớn a porn site.

Those pressures added up. By winter năm nhâm thìn, Mazzei was getting tired of Una.

“I started to lớn feel like I had lost control over my digital identity,” she says. “I wanted to lớn regain the feeling of agency over my own image.”

So the cam girl made a brutal decision: Kill her off.

But Una didn’t die quietly. Instead, Mazzei planned the character’s drunken suicide before a rapt audience of regulars.
