More About Phone Operator (PO)
Phone operators are advertised on a variety of adult websites. Their profiles are usually the stuff of fantasy, with images of pornographic actresses accompanying a list of turn-ons and areas of expertise. These may not have any bearing on the phone operator’s real-life character, although basing a phone sex persona on real-life personality helps make the calls more authentic.
Phone operators sign on to their employer’s website, which reroutes incoming calls to a personal cell phone. Phone operators are free to sign on and off at any time, although they are best served to log on late at night and in the early hours of the morning when website members are most active.
As fake images are used on phone sex websites, a phone operator's looks do not matter. However, phone operators must have sexy voices. Phone operators with accents are in high demand. Phone operators must also have good listening skills and vivid imaginations. They should be able to follow the lead of callers, but also able to improvise to ensure there’s never a lull in the conversation. Good organizational skills are also important, especially when dealing with repeat clients.
As phone sex work pays well, is anonymous, and can be done from home, it attracts women from all walks of life, including aspiring actresses, college students, and stay-at-home moms.
