The best part of it has been that anytime I want to I can just go into work, and go dance.” She added that, “My profession is webcamming and solo pay-per-view videos. I’m hoping that webcamming can become a more regular thing for me, and professionally-done pay-per-view videos that are solo can become a regular thing for me.”
