Support For PSOs & Tips On PSO Forums

As many people working in the adult industry do not disclose what they really do to family and friends (even with the most open-minded folks, there will be places and times it’s just not appropriate to talk about), working in the adult industry can be a very isolating experience. So having coworkers, comrades with which to conspire and confess, can be emotionally beneficial — not to mention the practical tips you can learn from those in the same business with you.

For those who work from home, you might want to consider forums and message boards for phone sex workers. Message boards and online groups are also another way to investigate phone sex companies before you begin working as a phone sex operator.

To be honest, the message board I once used a decade ago is long gone and I’m not sure where it was moved to… These two were recommended by a few of my friends:

A Google search will help you find some more.

Don’t be afraid to register or request a membership. Some may require you to be a working PSO to join; but others just want to (try to) keep out the riff-raff. Or callers.  (But you should know that many regular clients of phone sex services will do their best to access these “private, PSO only” places, so you would be wise to always believe at least a few are there — and they might be your callers, or your potential callers.)

If/when you register, you may want to use a new free email account and create a specific ID to ensure your privacy — even if you are already a working PSO. (When you register or join, if you must provide proof of your working phone sex status, usually this information is only seen by a site administer or can otherwise be marked private.)

Why keep even your phone sex operator ID secret — and from other PSOs, yet?

Aside from the fact I already shared, that callers will be lurking about, and so you might want to be incognito, there’s more….

The honest truth is some of these places can be where you’ll see “women at their worst.” It’s not just the understandable “close to the vest” attitudes where each PSO sees every other PSO as their competition (which, frankly, you are in many ways), but there are those who are territorial and, frankly, petty. This is not unique to phone sex workers or women per se; if you’ve spent your time in any group or community, online or off, you’ve seen this happen time and time again.

Keeping to yourself, reading and lurking, is best until you learn not only the lay of the land (specific forum rules), but figure out which members must be handled with care — or completely avoided.

Trust me, if you talk too much without knowing what’s what and who’s who, you’ll end up putting your foot in your mouth or really stepping in it, however unintentionally. You’ll end up wishing you could just disappear; with an ID not tied to you or your phone sex character, you can. Or at least limit damages to your professional phone sex identity.

Some companies and platforms for independents offer forums for the PSOs who work there — be careful, doubly careful, as these are often accessible by callers and you won’t be able to change your forum ID as it typically is tied to your PSO character’s name.

Don’t let all this scare you off forums and networks for phone sex operators; it’s no different than any other online group, really. It’s just a bit more complicated because it’s a professional network — no matter how casual and sex-ridden it appears. Remember that, and you’ll likely do just fine. You’ll learn a lot and have a place to go to find people who understand what your day was like.
