The real-life Girl 6
I don’t know about the next woman, but talking dirty on the phone is so weird for me. I usually clam up and feel awkward AF, so I never understood how one could be so comfortable with it. I remember staying up late at night, catching all of the 1-800-HORNY commercials attempt to lure men (and women) into calling for a late-night chat.
I haven’t seen those commercials in a while, and honestly, I thought the occupation was a thing of the past, until now. A 32-year-old woman sat down for an interview and dished on her life as a XXX phone operator.
In a time where webcams are all the rage, a 32-year-old woman talks dirty to hundreds of customers via phone. Sarah, whose real name won’t be disclosed, has been working as a phone sex operator for close to four years.
In 2006, Sarah began chatting with strangers on Second Life, a virtual, online world. She became a virtual escort on the game and fell in love with the “entrepreneurship of it.” After an IT job and midlife crisis, she went in to the phone sex business.
“I thought, ‘Hey, I’m gonna try this thing and see what happens.’ Three years later, it’s been bumpy, but this is my full-time gig,” she told VICE. In the interview, Sarah opens up about the world of phone sex. Here’s what she had to say…
On the Money
“It’s definitely a pay cut. Over the past three years in just four accounts, I’ve made about $43,000 (and I could probably factor in a couple other accounts). You can set up your own 1-800 number. I’ve thought about doing that. The complication is that somebody calls the 1-800 number, and you go into payment taking mode—taking their name, credit card number, billing information, and then you switch into the naughty stuff once you’re officially on the clock. I don’t like that switch. I’d rather something else do that and I just talk, so that fee is helpful. It’s a little less administration.”
