What’s It Like To Be Employed By A Phone Sex Company?

I have to confess that I’ve never worked for a phone sex company; as a former independent escort, I felt comfortable and knowledgeable enough to be an independent PSO. However, over the years I’ve met enough successful women who readily admit that working for a company first was the best thing they did for their phone sex careers. Here’s what they’ve shared with me about working for a phone sex service.


The hours are not as flexible as you might think; like any full or part time job, you’ll need to maintain scheduled hours in order to remain employed with a phone sex company. While you are required to work your set hours, there sometimes is the option to work additional hours (i.e. work an additional shift) when you want to make extra money; but you never have the freedom to just take calls when you feel like it.


Sometimes phone sex companies attempt to sign phone sex performers to non-compete contracts. You should verify if this is in the employment agreement, and consider the restrictive implications of it, before you sign it. Sometimes this non-compete clause is negotiable; but you can’t negotiate what you are unaware of. So read that agreement or contract before you sign it.

Many phone sex companies expect PSOs to “troll” for clients and/or work dispatch. Depending on the company, this work may be paid for at a different rate than your phone sex performance work. It’s wise to ask about this work, the expectations, and rate of pay. And, in cases of trolling, whether or not you are given a budget for, or reimbursed in any way for, money spent on ads, membership fees, etc.

In some cases the PSO’s compensation for trolling is a higher rate on calls received (sometimes with a quota of new clients to meet in order to achieve this higher rate). Other times, there is only the required generation of client quota — which, if not met, leads to the PSO losing her job. If this seems strict or unfair in anyway, compare it to many retail and sales jobs which have similar expectations and requirements.


In cases where you work on location for a phone sex company, there’s a mixed reaction… Kind of like a double-edged sword…

On one hand, you might feel strange having phone sex, describing or pantomiming sex, around other people — people who are either only seeing/hearing one side of the conversation, or who are on a phone sex call themselves.

But on the other hand, this means you have coworkers with whom to pass the time between calls, ask the advice of, get ideas and support from — all of which can be quite wonderful when you’re starting something so new.

Overall, it’s this sort of on-the-job training that many phone sex professionals say taught them much about the phone sex business and the adult industry in general.

Some learned phone sex work wasn’t their cup of tea. Others enjoyed it, became good at it — with many in this category feeling confident enough to go independent and keep more money per call for themselves.
