Phone Sex Recordings

Many phone sex companies will offer prerecorded phone sex listings, so that clients can get their fix when you are not around or may have a “sample” or way to “test” what your services may be like. These are typically sold at a per minute rate, just like live calls; but a number of sites offer the ability for you to sell your own recordings, such as an MP3, at a single flat fee.

The question I’m most asked about this is whether or not these recordings should be sold at a lower per minute rate. (In cases of MP3 files, the fee ought to be based, in part, on its length; so this is a similar concern.)

There are pros and cons to the idea of lower pricing for phone sex recordings…

While the typical thought is that you only put the effort into the recording one time — and that you’re not reacting to individual caller needs, so it “should” be at a lower rate. But, personally, I find solo phone sex performances to be quite a lot of work. There’s the scripting of them, the reading and rereading of them for a smooth recording (sometimes quite a number of attempts before a great recording is achieved), which is certainly more work than collaborating in the moment with a phone sex partner.

Also, there are a number of clients who enjoy recorded calls even more than live calls. Some even listen to the same phone sex recording over and over again — like children with a favorite bedtime story. If this favorite erotic story was a downloaded file they may play again and again without any further fees going to you, you may have lost money.  Especially as many of these phone sex customers feel they are completely anonymous, disconnected from you and your services, and so they feel they do not owe you any tip, feedback, etc.

Given all this, why should phone sex recordings automatically be priced as having less value?
