Phone Sex Character Development

One of the things I find very useful in creating phone sex characters is to view them as real people, with real personalities and motivations — just like characters in novels and films. This way, you can create more realistic characters for your callers to interact with as well as more easily immerse yourself more in the role, reacting as that character rather than trying to think of something to say on the spot when Johnny asks, “Where do you live?” or “Is this your full time job?” or “Why do you do phone sex?”

Worse than having to think up something on the spot, is trying to recall what you said — in case it’s asked again of you later.

One of the tools writers use to create their characters is what’s called a Character Profile Sheet, which addresses the basic outline of the character as well as provides information which might explain the character’s motivation. You can take this character development as far and deep as you’d like, but here are a few basic questions to know about “yourself.”
