“It’s not about sexuality; it’s about them using stupid practices”: Advertising phone sex lines

As Shyla*, a phone sex operator shares in a forum,

“I am a phone sex operator who is just getting started and not having much luck. I am very good at what I do but I cannot seem to get the callers”

 The reason she claims for decline in the business is due to the lack of advertisements for the business. Advertising and establishing themselves is a great task to deal with in working as a phone sex operator. The charge for advertising phone sex services in online media varies according to the trafficking opted by the client. It is usually a lot higher than what is being paid for normal advertisements. Because of these higher rates some phone sex operators prefer to work on a well built platform like Niteflirt, Myphonesite or Talksugar. But, there also problem exists. There are low call rates in this, as said in an interview with us by a phone sex operator, who has been working in the field for about 6 years,

 “Some companies will take advantage of a phone sex operator by offering less than beneficial compensation to someone who doesn’t know any better”

Phone sex, as advertised by various media:

Most of the national newspapers have banned advertisements for services of sexual nature. Before this ban phone sex commercials have been present in some newspapers. Newspapers like The Sun have carried advertisements of phone sex companies. These advertisements were banned as they portrayed women’s body as a sexual object. Countries like Mexico, Spain have also banned advertising sexual content in newspapers. There are magazines who still advertise phone sex.

Phone sex commercials widely known as the late night commercials, have been there for a while in television industries. In a related forum, Laht* says

“All you have to do to stop this phone sex thing is run an advertisement on television that shows what the real sex-talkers look like”

Unlike these usual advertising, phone sex companies had also started ‘phreaking which literally means hacking of phone lines. Many calls by customers have been redirected to hot chat lines. One affected person says,

It’s not about sexuality; it’s about them using stupid practices like this to try to entice the general public to use their business. If I wanted to use a phone sex line it would take me 30 seconds on Google to find the number of one. They don’t need to have a million phone numbers all forwarding to their sex line. They’re just hoarding numbers and it’s illegal”

Websites and online Webpages are a go-to spot for majority of these phone sex companies to advertise themselves. The selection here takes place based on the number of hits and trafficking posed by the site.

A phone sex operator says,

“Marketing for phone lines isn’t difficult, per say but there are a LOT of people doing it so getting noticed is where most people run into problems”

There is a great deal of effort put in advertising these phone sex sites. Financially, this requires a lot of stability to establish themselves in this field.
