If you were to do it during the weekdays, I don't know how busy you'd be, but I know you do still get some calls. For my company at least you have to be 18, have to have a landline phone, you have to have internet connection and AIM installed, you have to have a clear phone voice, and you have to be willing to take the taboo calls. I come home and have dinner with my husband and our daughter, put her to bed, log in, then my husband and I hang out while I wait for calls. The nice thing about being a contracted employee is that they can't tell you when to work.
Or B) They are into something that they can't ethically explore in any other way but with another consenting adult (incest, bestiality, etc.) Sometimes the guys fit into both categories. How do you handle callers who just want an emotional connection? It doesn't bother me to talk to the guys who want a connection. It's sad that talking to me is the highlight of their week for some of them, but I'm glad I can fill that role for them. We usually talk for a while before we get down to sex and then when we do he is always really sweet about it.
It makes me feel more like a human being and less like a human fleshlight. He has a great sense of humor, and I think we'd actually make great friends in real life.
Hi, as you might now, my name is Helmuts, I am the person behind Lust and times by times the functionality as well as design changes.
The obvious reason is that being a sultry phone actress requires you to forget your inhibitions, embrace graphic sexual discussions, and oftentimes transcend taboos. I get paid 30min for time that I am actually on the phone. We have per-minute calls as well as blocks of calls. The tricky thing about it is that you're kinda waiting around for calls. We're not allowed to hang up because someone is freakier than we like. Usually we can manage to get in a little quality time between calls. How do you balance having so little time for yourself? So if I want the night off, I just send them a message saying I'm taking the night off. Are you open with the people in your life about your job? My friends and my sisters know about the phone sex, but I haven't told my mom. How does your husband feel about you talking to other men this way? My husband doesn't mind the talking, except that it interrupts our TV watching.
But there are a lot of misconceptions out there about the payoff for this line of work. The lady pretty much just went through the contract with me, how they operate, etc. On a typical night I make 20 to 60 dollars; I could make more if I wanted to stay logged on longer, but I have my day job, too. So if the dispatcher says a guy is a 5-40, that means I'm going to get paid for a minimum of five minutes. If a guy pays for a five-minute block and he's allowed to have two extensions, it means he's paid for the first five minutes. I'd say my average call is probably around the 20-minute mark. You can't really get into anything you can't quickly get out of. I don't usually work on the weekends unless I'm bored and want to make extra money. He had to wait 40 minutes last night to resume the episode of "Bates Motel" we were watching. I will tell my daughter someday when she's old enough to understand it.
Movies such as "For A Good Time, Call" depict phone-sex operators down on their luck soon raking in the cash from their new ventures. She didn't ask me for any kind of demo, but she did ask me if I was comfortable with elements of BDSM, playing other ages, if I could do any accents, things like that. It pays a bit better than my day job, but the money isn't guaranteed (some nights are just slow), so I won't be quitting my day job. After that first five minutes it's per minute, and they round up. When it gets close to five minutes I ask him if he wants to extend. Of course I have some three-hour calls and some three-minute calls. Webcams do pay a lot more and I've been thinking about getting into that, but the level of work goes up quite a bit, too. I think how I explain it to my daughter will depend on her age.
And tongue-in-cheek articles often emphasize the upsides of the job, including flexible hours and the endless supply of funny anecdotes to share with your friends. So if we talk for 17 minutes and 20 seconds, I get paid for 18 minutes. If he does, he's charged for the seven-minute block of time (the next block up), even if he hangs up at six minutes. This becomes more important when you get to the higher blocks. I think that explaining that mommy's job is to talk to people on the phone is a decent summary when she's young.
But a recent Reddit AMA with an unnamed phone-sex operator reveals that, unless you truly love what you do, this job is not as rewarding as you'd hope. Honestly, my day job is in a call center, so it's not really that different.
The 25-year-old mother and wife writes that she holds an office job by day and works from home as a dispatch phone-sex operator by night. I did some searching online for phone-sex operator (PSO) companies. I got a call a few weeks later, had a phone interview, and they got me set up to start working the next night. As she gets older, if I'm still doing it, I'll explain more to her. I plan on doing it as long as it's still fun and I'm making money.
While she says she loves what she does most nights, she also acknowledges that it is unlikely that she could fully support herself with this job alone. I'm going to have to eventually explain sex, porn, all of that. It's really important for me that it's my choice to do it.
Here are some of the questions and answers from her AMA that shed more light on what it's really like to be a phone-sex operator. I feel like this is just another extension of that. My husband had a bad habit for a little while of saying things like "shouldn't you clock in now? An overwhelming amount of the guys I talk to fit into one of two categories. I had a customer get mad at me because he said I was confusing him with another guy and he was mad I didn't remember him, but I take pretty detailed notes so that doesn't happen.
