Ups and Downs of Being a Phone Sex Operator By Raven Skye

Being a Phone Sex Operator and Everything You Need to Know

20 years ago when you were working as a phone sex operator you were working in an office building in a cubicle next to dozens of other moaning operators. There are current veteran pso’s who can tell you their horror stories of punching the clock at a brick and mortar phone sex company every day. Today, every PSO works from home thanks to technology and innovation in the industry.

 

What Exactly Does A PSO Do?

Phone sex operators work from home answering the phone, talking to men about sex, fetishes, or just chit chatting. Sometimes you’ll be a naughty Dominatrix doing CBT (cock and ball torture) while other times you may be a therapist counseling them on their sex life with their wives. Every single call and every single caller will be different which is why there are no scripts and you need to be innovative and think on your toes. Many people not in the sex industry or brand new to phone sex think you’ll just be moaning and trying to get the guy off. Sometimes you’ll do that, yes. However, the vast majority of calls will involve fetishes and often times very extreme fetishes. Boy, the stories you’ll be able to tell after working as a pso for awhile could shock a porn star.

 

The Different Types of Phone Sex Companies

There are three types of phone sex companies. They are dispatch, combo, and trolling.

Dispatch – Dispatch companies process the payments from the callers and route the calls to you so the callers never know your phone number or any personal information. These companies pay the least amount per minute, generally,because you do less work than with the other companies.

Combo – Combo companies are a combination of dispatch and trolling companies. These companies will take the calls and process the payments then route the calls to you but you’re going to be expected to help market your characters through Twitter, blogging, using chat rooms, etc. Combo companies pay more than straight dispatch because more effort is required of you.

Trolling – Lastly, trolling companies require the most work from you and they pay the highest rate per minute. When working for a trolling company you’ll need to download and use AIM messenger and Yahoo messenger to talk to your new and repeat callers, create Twitter, Tumblr, other social media accounts and create and post on a blog to market your girls and get your own traffic. You’ll also have to take the callers credit card information and bill the call yourself. These companies require A LOT of work which is why most pay $1 or more per min of talk time. Trolling companies are definitely NOT recommended for new psos.

Networks – Then, there’s also the independent platforms like NiteFlirt and AdultPhonePal. These are like trolling companies because you’ll have to help market yourself. But, the sites will take care of payment processing and routing the calls to you like dispatch companies.

 

The Basics You’ll Need to Get Started

First, you’ll need to decide what kind of PSO you want to be: independent or working g for a company as a contractor. If you decide you want to go the independent route (not recommended for newbie ops because it takes a lot of knowledge of seo, marketing, you’ll have to bring your own traffic, etc) then you will need to sign up on the major platforms which are NiteFlirt, AdultPhonePal, MyPhoneSite, TalktoMe, and a new one is SinCats.com.

Check out some of the other girls’ pages. See what kind of pictures they have up, what fetishes they talk about, look at their reviews, and so on. This will help you decide what you want to specialize in, what fetishes you’ll need to learn about and what kind of profile you’ll need to set up. These platforms ensure that only adults can call you. They process the credit card payments for you and bring in some traffic through their marketing efforts. They’ll pay you probably twice a month, too.

 

Being A Completely Independent Operator

The completely independent operator (highly not recommended until you have at least one year experience) sets up her own website, gets her own 800 number, purchases traffic and does all the marketing. However, you get to set your own rates and keep all the profits versus the platforms which take a percentage of each call minute billed.

 

I Suggest Working Dispatch First

What I suggest is that you start by working for a dispatch company for awhile. All you’ll have to do is sign in, answer the phone and do the call. The pay is generally much lower than combo and trolling companies but much less work is required. Get your feet wet doing dispatch for awhile and learn and grow. Then, if you want, later you can try a combo or trolling company or go indie, or both.

 

Finding Sexy Profile Photos To Use

Secondly, you will NOT be using your own photos unless you really want to. You’ll have to purchase model content from a content website (One option is Classy Content and Google “adult content” or “phone sex model content” for other options). If you’re an independent op and you’re using your own website or are working on a platform like NiteFlirt or AdultPhonePal, you should purchase content for at least two or three different models because you’re going to want to play more than one character to maximize your earning potential. If a client isn’t interested in your blonde bombshell model then maybe he’ll be obsessed with your teen redhead girl. Give them options.

 

It’s Okay To Be Nervous When Starting Out

When you first start out it’s completely normal to be nervous and to not know what you’re doing. Don’t give up! Keep taking call after call, hone your skills, and build up your regulars as you build up your confidence. You’ll be a phone sex Goddess in no time.

Read as much of the forum psosupport.com as you can because there are hundreds of new and veteran operators there posting thousands of very helpful tips and information. It’s also nice to be a part of a community of other phone ho’s.

Happy phonicating!
