Phone Sex Operators On ABC Again

ABC is going to run another phone sex segment on 20/20 tonight. While I’ve no idea if any of my comments (as promised last year for Nightline) or earlier network coverage regarding phone sex jobs will be included, but part of the promo for the show includes an article entitled Five Lessons From a Temporary Phone-Sex Operator.

I’ve written enough tonight, so I’ll save my comments on the article for post-show commentary. But that may be awhile as I have calls scheduled at night and over the weekend; thank hevens for DVRs. *wink*

UPDATE: Apparently it was a false alarm in terms of phone sex being on 20/20 last Friday; it happens, as we know. As for comments on the article…

Overall, while a bit generic, it’s not bad. It’s not clear whether the author worked for a phone sex company (and if so, what kind of phone sex company), or if she was an independent PSO. I’d bet she worked for a company; for even though she mentioned the ability to decline or hang-up on callers (which at some companies can get you fired), she doesn’t seem to have worked in a niche nor done any marketing. Your thoughts?
