“I had a lot of friends and a lot of girlfriends have that job” : Views from forums

Phone sex, after being broadcasted in a real-time show on Channel 4 called “My Phone Sex Secrets”  has become one of the avenues for students to earn and lead a luxurious living in a short time bracket.The forums are filled with discussions, the media definitely has given a mainstream vibe to the phone sex industry. Students are registered with phone sex companies which serves as network operators by linking these Phone Sex lines. In ‘The Student Room’ we posted a discussion thread and received some interesting replies.

“Phone sex has been shown in light by various media and is this really happening one, a reality? Is this sex centered career a good idea to pay your bills? Do any of your friends do it? And if yes how you generally feel about it? What is your opinion about students getting involved in this?”

“I had a lot of friends and a lot of girlfriends have that job. The longer they have that job the more it changes them. I think it’s a great part time job if you need quick money. You can work at home at your own pace. It’s easy cash. I wouldn’t recommend it as a full time job regular job”

“The only thing that springs to mind from your thread is that of Ann Hathaway’s character in the movie Valentines Day where she earns extra money by working as a phone sex girl as a part time job! I really don’t know what I personally feel about this, whether I would participate in it or not. I probably would I suppose, as a last resort, as you’re not exploiting your body (such as through part time nude modelling, something in the press that a few uni students did a few years back to pay for their textbooks!) and it’s anonymous to a degree”.

“Honestly, I don’t think that I could cope with a boyfriend in that kind of business!”

The views that are pouring in from other forums on this discussion,

Heather * says,

“I was with a company you sign up with and they direct the calls to your home phone when you log on. You get paid per minute you’re on the call. I done it last year when OH was out of work and we had a big holiday paid for but no spends.On average though it does work out about £5 an hour”

Most of them who posted replies in this thread had a general quote, that working as a phone sex operator is a easy way to earn some quick cash and they would give it a try to hit some extra cash.

In connection to this, There are also some universities which had taken initiative to take action, the survey on “The Student Sex Work project” conducted by Swansea University which is a three year project funded by ‘Big lottery’ with the overall purpose to promote learning and understanding about student sex worker needs and associated issues is a point to ponder as there Is an increasing number of students turning as sex workers.

Another dimension of this discussion is that if they are in a relationship they expect their partner to be trustworthy and not to be engaged in these sex lines. This is another dimension to discuss upon.
