My Start in the Phone Sex Industry

 

Phone sex is an industry that has been growing in popularity, but has been around for years. Most well known, internet-based companies formed in or around the year 2000.

The types of phone sex or niches as they are called in the industry, are as different and unique as the people who call them. You have your standard phone sex sites that cater to all types of calls. Then you have your more individualized sites that offer domination phone sex, fetish phone sex, and kinky phone sex, just to name a few. For every fantasy, for every caller, there is a site that will suit your needs and desires.

One question that women who are phone sex operators seem to get asked over and over is, how did you get your start in phone sex? You see, I get asked that question a lot, because I am a phone sex operator.

Being in phone sex is not for everyone. You need to have certain characteristics. First off, you need not be shy. You will get asked all sorts of personal questions, and you need to be able to field those questions with quick-witted responses, without getting flustered. Almost all sites post a picture of the operator for the caller, so he or she can get a visual of who they are speaking with. You can either have your pictures taken by a photographer, or do your own for more armature looking shots.

Next, you need to have a great personality. You definitely need the gift for gab. Phone sex is not just moaning and groaning as some people may think. You have to be able to carry on a conversation on a wide range of topics. In addition, you have to like sex and be educated on the topics about which you are speaking.  You may not have done every scenario that the caller is requesting, but you will need to be able to weave a fantasy from the topic that the caller has chosen.

 

My Start in Phone Sex

 

I started in the phone sex industry seven years ago. I stuck my toes in the water of the sex industry when I worked at an adult movie and novelty shop in New York City. My boyfriend at the time was the manager, and I worked at the store with him. We had tons and tons of DVD movies and every adult toy you could imagine and then some at the store. In the back of the store we had movie booths that men, and occasionally women, would go back and view. We also had something that I was unfamiliar with at the time called glory holes…

I can’t tell you how green I was when I first entered this industry. In the beginning I think I blushed every time someone asked me a question about a dildo or a toy. Some of the toys I had never even seen before. I was in my early twenties at the time, and although I was sexually experienced, I had never been in this environment before.

I still remember when I went back to the viewing booths with my boyfriend for the first time, and saw someone enjoying one of the glory holes. I looked like a deer in the headlights, or so I have been told. But, I stuck it out. As they say, you can never look away from a train wreck, and as embarrassed as I was in the beginning, I was intrigued.

I found myself looking forward to work, and as weeks turned into months, I also found myself a bit of an expert on the toys and the videos. This of course came from research. How could I instruct and give advice on a particular item, if I was not a product tester? That’s at least what I told myself. I began to know the regular customers, and one day one of them said something that would change my life. A female customer that was a regular for over a year,said that I have a great voice and I could be a phone sex operator. She said I have the whole package for the job and I should call her company.

I had never really paid much attention to those 900 numbers that I saw on the backs of those adult magazines. She told me that she had been doing it for years and loved it. She gave me the number to apply at her company, and told me to give them a call. I would have never guessed that is what she did for a living. I thought she was just a model, as most good looking girls are in New York.

I went home that night and did a search for phone sex on the Internet. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw what came up. All these phone sex companies popped up. There were so many different sites and so many different topics. Later that evening I talked to my boyfriend and asked for his input. He was all for it. I thought to myself, I can do this. I talked to people in person all day long about sex, and it would be even easier to discuss it on the phone. I called the number for the phone sex company that night.
