Kendra Sunderland has become something of a celebrity in her hometown of Salem, Oregon.
Last year, the 19-year-old says she would be stopped for autographs, which she loved, and guys often asked for pictures.
“Members do get close to each other so we are worried for these young women.
You can kind of cross into the cons of Craigslist and Backpage and all the issues they’ve had.” Both Craigslist and Backpage became havens for prostitution and, in some cases, sex trafficking.
According to a criminal complaint filed against him, Berrett spent more than 0,000 on My Free alone through 2,200 transactions, and sent ,800 to one cam model in particular to “pay for her college tuition bill, new tires for her car and pay her parent’s utility bill.” Berrett also purchased chocolates, flowers, electronic equipment, wine, shoes, a TV, a handbag, a laptop computer and an i Pod for some of his favorite cam girls, according to the indictment.
But mostly, she says, “People would recognize me and stare. It’s OK, you can talk to me like a normal person.’ But they all just really stare.”Sunderland’s fame was largely the result of an hourlong video she made of herself at Oregon State University’s Valley Library last year in which she stripped and masturbated on camera for a live audience.
The performance was recorded by someone who was watching online, Sunderland says, who loaded it to a number of porn websites.
After applying for and being rejected from a number of waitress and bartending jobs, she looked into camming on the suggestion of her brother’s friends.
Like thousands of other young women over the past few years, Sunderland found a website and sent it a few photos, a scan of her ID and a short description of herself and almost immediately started performing live webcam shows.
