Ok I don't think I really do, I think I'd feel a bit grubby but I was speaking to a mum at school who was telling me this is what she does during the day and can make about £200 a week!

I have visions of Big Mo in Easties being Miss Whiplash whilst doing the ironing. I could well do with an extra £200 a week though - who couldn't?

Anyone done this?

There was an ad on the telly last night for a programme on the ladies who do this - called phone sex - think it was channel 4?

Maybe we could all watch it then give opinions would hate to rule a good career choice out just for being uninformed! wink

I saw an ad for a programme on C4 I think, next Monday I think.

I think I will be watching grin.

takingiteasy Thu 08-Mar-12 12:37:10

Oh I've not seen that advertised! Will be watching with interest. I thought sex chat would have died a death with all the porn etc out there nowadays - apprarantly...

My mate did this about 25 years ago and was earning around £10 per hour even then!

She did say you need a strong stomach and the ability to not burst out laughing grin

I would have thought though that with the internet, people would use sex chat lines less and less these days.

I dunno if I could do that without laughing.

Besides, nobody could be turned on by my nasal, fag ash Lil voice!

I do quite fancy setting one up like a woman in Italy Hear me moan, once callers wankers got through, it was a recording of woman saying "When are you gonna get off your fat, lazy arse and do some work round here" etc, etc.

Brilliant I thought, however she was prosecuted under Italian Trades description and given hefty fine sad. some people have no sense of humour.

Hmm, is probably the least of all evils, but its still a job within the sex trade, i.e. debasing yourself to make a man get his rocks off. £200 per week sounds wonderful, but not at the expense of my dignity, thanks.

So I guess YANBU as its your choice, but it wouldn't be for me personally.

I would like the money but I don't think I could do it without laughing.

WorraLiberty Thu 08-Mar-12 12:48:13

Why do people assume it's only men who use sex lines?

inoutshakeitallabout Thu 08-Mar-12 12:53:10

i do it, full time income for 40 hrs, never had a woman ring in yet and been doing it 4 years smile

inoutshakeitallabout Thu 08-Mar-12 12:53:58

oh and u dont debase yourself, what rubbish!

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 08-Mar-12 13:02:32

If i needed the money, Tbh i would do it. My child can't eat my principles.

wineandroses Thu 08-Mar-12 13:06:14

ThePathanKhansWitch hahahaha! How funny is that? Marvellous idea.

wineandroses Thu 08-Mar-12 13:07:07

ooh cross post - I meant the woman in Italy, not your child eating!

bejeezus Thu 08-Mar-12 13:11:39

my friend did it- dont think the money was great, but it was a while ago. she did it for the laugh-but got bored and sleazed out

Same friend also was a receptionist in a brothel. Lots of the women working there did it in secret- their husbands/partners thought they were cleaners/factory workers/whatever...they were just getting xtra money for xmas/holiday etc

LulaPalooza Thu 08-Mar-12 13:18:18

takingiteasy - how many hours does this woman have to do to earn £200?

inout - how much do you earn for 40 hours a week? (feel free to tell me to FO if you think I'm being too nosy).

If it was £200 for a 40 hour week, I wouldn't do it. Have no moral objection to the nature of the work, but I do have a massive moral objection to making money for someone else whilst earning less than minimum wage.

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 08-Mar-12 13:18:33

Wineandroses it made me laugh.smile

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 08-Mar-12 13:20:00

Lula great post! That's my kind of objection. Yes OP, do make sure your paid correctly.

NaughtyMrChicken Thu 08-Mar-12 13:21:37

You don't get an hourly wage usually with chat lines. You are paid by the minute.

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 08-Mar-12 13:23:31

Ooh really?? interested now so the idea is to get them to a head and keep them there?

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 08-Mar-12 13:24:15

Nobody would earn fuck all if my husband was a regular BTW.

takingiteasy Thu 08-Mar-12 13:25:02

Yeah that's how she explained it, she might log on for an hour but not talk for an hour, she gets paid for actual call time. From what she was saying she logs on at school times so I'm guessing 9-3 give or take an hour, say 4 days a week. So probably does work out less than min wage but she's on her arse, in her own home, mopping the floors and making the dinner inbetween.

wineandroses Thu 08-Mar-12 13:25:25

What a great name NaughtyMrChicken. What's the rate per minute? Do you work on a chatline?

inoutshakeitallabout Thu 08-Mar-12 13:25:42

no i dont mind lulapalooza, its those who never have done it who ASSUME its bad which gets on my nerves and btw for those who try to claim it is, it is nothing like a prostitute or anything else !

it changes depending on traffic etc as you only get paid for the calls, not for being logged in, but for 40 hrs a week on average, its always a min 300 and on great weeks 450-500, most in a week was 1000 but i was talked out and did about 70 hrs over the xmas and nye week and you have to allow time to build up regular users and i have many who i never talk dirty to but just chat about their work, hobbies etc

yes many talk dirty, but it is words on a phone, no worse than an actress talking dirty in a film and certainly no worse than god forbid getting the baps out for a sex scene

for many, they are older lonely men, divorced single or widows, who just want to talk to a female who wont prejudge or think they are odd

i have a character who i 'act' and earn enough for me and my family to supplement the income choosing own hours to fit around school or weekend clubs, working whenever suits, and being there for home time, school runs, ill days etc

its a great flexible way to work for those who dont judge as soon as they hear 'sex' in a sentence lol
