“Control the cock, you control the man”- My Phone Sex Secrets

Channel 4 has recently aired a show called “My Phone Sex Secrets” , which is about 56 year old Jenny Ainslie Turner who is a phone sex worker. The hour long documentary is full of tricks of the trade and how Jenny has found her way to easy money. Earning money by the minute and doing something she enjoys, as she claims “I never tire of talking about sex,” phone sex is a solution to all her financial difficulties.

The documentary has also focused on two students who have also opted to be phone sex workers to help fund their university expenses. *Marnie, 19 started her job as a phone sex worker when she was struggling for cash, however has chosen to leave that behind and her university as she felt being a phone sex worker has lead her to a life of loneliness. She has now chosen to photograph escorts and strippers as her career option.

Similarly Rosa, who was broke in her first year of uni, decided to try out her charms in the phone sex industry. We watched her take tips from Jenny and slowly seen her become a professional in her own right. She quite enjoyed faking orgasms and controlling men. Shes decided to stick to being a phone sex operator as its a fun way of earning extra cash.

But what do others think about this? A forum on www.mumsnet.com have been discussing it. Allthegoodnamesweretaken says

“To me it seems like the show is trying to show them as empowered women because they are taking advantage of men’s weaknesses for financial gain, when to me phone sex work is still sex work. You’re still degraded for a man who you have no emotional connection with’s sexual gratification.”

On the other hand, someone who chose this route as the job centre continuously failed to help her find employment said

“I saw a job in a sex chatline office advertised in local classifieds. It paid £12.000 a year and it was night work but it was a choice between that or workfare. Ive done workfare and ive done chatline work and guess what. Out of those two choices which were the ONLY two choices i had at that time,it wasnt the chatline that i found degrading.”
