Career as adult video performer ‘made me rich,’ Dice says in new ‘Daily Beast’ first-person essay.

[Damon] Dice.. tells what he says is his own story of his entry into adult. After graduating from East Carolina University in 2011 with a hospitality degree, he moved to Los Angeles and quickly sank underwater financially as he tried to develop an app that “live-streamed video from bars, clubs, restaurants, festivals, and charity events to the user’s phone.”

So he “Googled ‘how to make money fast,’” and apparently without hesitation followed the first advice the search engine turned up — webcamming.

“Next thing I know, I am doing live-sex webcam shows with one of my girlfriends from college. Money was starting to come in, and I was able to keep my company afloat,” he wrote.

“At the end of the day, [we] filled out the waivers and [we] stepped in front of that camera. Life is about decisions—sometimes the results turn out how we expect them to, and sometimes the results will lead us down a path that we would have never in our wildest dreams anticipated,” he wrote in the Daily Beast essay.
