I like to be in front of the camera. Rachel, who played the clarinet in her high school band and considered joining the Air Force after graduation, was excited at the idea of modeling, making good money and a chance to get on a plane for the first time ever. I still didn't think anyone would find out, didn't think my parents would find out. But when she landed in Miami, Rachel said she realized she had stepped into a world she never imagined -- one that she said would haunt her forever.

The scarier, even more callous side of the business appears in due course as the women sign on for niche videos to keep the checks coming in. The sleazeballs doing this are well-versed in the language of female sexual empowerment. It's a key ingredient of the scam.
