How much do phone sex operators actually make?

For students that are turning to phone sex, many are attracted by the flexible hours working for easy money? Many companies require you to undergo the application process before explaining how much they will pay you, as explained in this previous post.

Premium rate business advices that you can earn up to £19.000 a year to take 15 phone sex calls a day, if they can last around 6 minutes. These are prices that are for the company rather than the individual. It is unlikely that individuals will earn such high amounts as companies only pass along a small percentage of the profit.

The standard amount individuals receive is 20% of the cost of the call. This would mean a PSO working on 20% would receive £16.20 for completing 15 calls. Doing this everyday would be £113.40 a week for around 10 hours work, a very appealing prospect for students.

These figures show the potential there to be made for phone sex companies who could make vast amounts of money by employing lots of PSO’s.

However some people pose a very different idea of how much can be made through being a PSO. This yahoo chat claims “I work as a pso/text sex operator and I make around £100 a week if I’m lucky that’s working about 25 hours a week, you can earn more if you work more hours.”

Obviously the validity can be doubted on websites such as these but it is a good way to gather data as people are more willing to give information online anonymously.

There are many different ways of turning to phone sex for money based on how far people are willing to go, sex texting can still give the opportunity to earn small amounts of money anonymously with flexible hours. Students willing to use webcams and speak to clients can earn double the amount of PSO.

Website jezebel explains For the modern day sex worker, phone sex alone often doesn’t pay the bills. One Niteflirt girl’s personal website advertises that she also sells panties, offers live cam-shows, sells videos, makes custom videos and works as an erotic dancer with the rest of her time. This tweet from hash-tag #niteflirt user @xxxdynamitexxx sums it up, “only 11am—already filmed 8 new clips, then logged into #niteflirt and immediately had an intense 15 minute call. Phew, I need a nap! :)”

They go on to explain that Sallie, a Niteflirt worker had this to say: “Some Flirts get enough work to support themselves, others get no calls at all. It is NOT possible to just sign up, post a picture and get calls. It requires skills in marketing, design, writing, and basic HTML. Hard work and even luck are not enough. We see new Flirts complaining in the forum that they’re getting no calls, or begging for help. Well, it is not as simple as talking dirty and collecting a check like many people think.”

It seems that to become a PSO making good amounts of money it is important to be committed in providing a profile and dedicating time to accepting calls whenever they are offered. Based on data collected it seems unlikely people use phone sex as a full time job but can be a good source of money for students receiving student loans.
