Most of her viewers right now are her "friends," who seem happy just to hang out, listen to her talk, and reminisce about their shared stories. "People still come into my room asking about the coffee stand," says Eevie."Everyone misses it." Eevie got her start camming by setting up her laptop inside the bikini barista drive-through espresso stand she was working at, which is apparently a novelty to people around the world. Like, 'Holy shit, there's a girl in her underwear in public.'" The rules have changed since then.Earlier this year, an Oregon State University student was caught broadcasting from the school library, and now MFC no longer allows its models to cam in public.

Right now, Eevie's goal topic is taking off her dress, and most of the tips coming in are for her topic of drinking wine.

Neither she nor her viewers seem in a hurry to reach the topic.

The history of Eevie's camming career is collective, a mutual memory that builds and changes with the people she's connected to, and the stories Eevie told me were my first exposure to how personal and meaningful camming relationships can become. (Sarah's name has been changed for this article.) Boggers asks if Eevie has told me "their story."
