As the novel coronavirus continues to bring anxiety, fear, and a general sense of suck to the world, many individuals are taking the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic and turning it into a fun and profitable experience!
One industry enjoying quite the boost from the global pandemic is the adult film and webcam world. As millions of individuals find themselves spending most of their lives online, many are turning to webcams and adult stars looking to find some sexy fun during the lockdowns.
Someone who is becoming increasingly popular during the pandemic shutdown is webcam star Heidi Grey (@heidixgrey). Grey – a 22-year-old self-proclaimed “homebody with a generally normal life” – has quickly risen in popularity as one of the industry’s top online performers – and the increase in business through the pandemic has helped her put her passion to even greater work.
So what is it like to combine your passions with a pandemic? We sat down with Heidi to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic is treating her and to see how she has been able to grow her passion-project during the shutdowns.
What led you to the world of adult webcamming?
“Living in Scottsdale, Arizona, I’ve always loved being creative and finding fun ways to express myself. I’ve worked in both sales and the restaurant industry while in high school, and recently dipped my toe into the water of webcamming while working a day job at a tile shop. I love the opportunity to express myself in the ways that I want to – being an entrepreneur has allowed me to combine fun and business!”
Did you have any fears with getting into adult film and webcamming?
“When I was working a day job at the tile company, I always had this fear in the back of my mind that a team member or customer would recognize me from the internet. But then I realized – if I’m going to enjoy my life, I have to go full-throttle and chase my dreams. As a person with a weird and fun personality, I’ve always been up for the challenge. Being a creative in the webcam world has helped me make those dreams come true.”
How are you holding up during the COVID-19 pandemic?
“Honestly, I get this question a lot, and the truth is – my life hasn’t really changed that much! The porn business is pandemic-proof. In fact, business is booming now that so many people are stuck online all day! I’m happy to take advantage of that and bring some smiles and sexiness to a pretty sad world.”
“People would actually be surprised to learn that I’m a pretty normal girl who is actually a homebody. I love working on projects around my house and having fun decorating my place. Adult stars are really just like everyone else. We just enjoy being on camera a bit more!”
