    Is it for the experience or fun or....??
    I can think of some advantages of paying for a model even a non-professioanl one.

    Time is money. You pay for their time. You don't want to let people to think you are taking advantage of them. And they will be more forthcoming for the future shoots if you want some more.

    Model Release without payments I don't think they would want to sign away model releases. And without model releases those photos would have limited commercial usage.
