10 Photos That Show the True Face of Jealousy
These 10 Photos Show What It Really Looks Like to Be a Phone Sex Operator
A new book by photographer Phillip Toledano asked nearly 30 women (and men!) what it was like to be a phone sex operator and then took photos of them to put alongside their experiences, The Daily Beast reports.
One woman in a wheelchair told Toledano about one time when "a caller shot himself with me on the phone" and she heard "[t]he unmistakable sounds of a gunshot followed by the heavy and wet sound of a body falling with a thud to the floor. Things like this always scare me."
Though that's about the darkest experience you could likely have as a phone sex operator, the book details mostly lighter tales of callers wanting to talk to women with super strength, people who wish they could become the size of a tampon, and of course men who want to hear a woman tell them they're "pond scum."
While it's not suicide-level bizarre, the book also features a story about a truly upsetting fantasy that a male phone sex operator was asked to indulge in involving him having sex with the man's girlfriend and then coming "on the baby" and then on his girlfriend's breasts "so the baby could eat it."
Many of the participants are trying to put their children through college or pay for their own education or are in far more dire situations, such as one woman who said that a regular customer's generous tip helped her be able to leave an abusive relationship.
"If I didn't work this job, I could have been killed by that man," the unnamed woman says. "I'm getting paid to talk to all kinds of people and deal with their fantasies, as well as delving into my own. And you get tips and gifts."
Toledano says he hopes to "pull back the veil" of what most people think when they think of phone sex workers to reveal "the expected, and the unexpected, all at once."
You can see 10 of the gorgeous images (and their quotes below it) from the book here.
"Tuning into men's voices, instead of getting caught up on their looks, was the same as a person suddenly going blind, only to find their other senses enhanced. I learned to listen to men in a deeper way. My job behooved me to reach beyond the little mind games, straight into their pants and grasp them by the balls. I think if all women did phone sex before they lost their virginity, they would make much better choices."
"Definitely the most amusing part about the job was when my partner would be in the room with me, usually reading while I worked. She'd only hear half of the conversation, so she'd either think it was absolutely hysterical or, sometimes, kind of sexy. I'd usually try to avoid eye contact with her during a call, because I'd see her stifle a smirk or make a gagging gesture or look at me wide-eyed, pantomiming utter shock, and I'd start laughing uncontrollably. Sometimes I could work that into the call; other times I really couldn't."
"I've only been a phone sex operator for a few months now to help with extra income — I'm a single mother of two young boys. I'm in a loving relationship with a wonderful man who loves my kids and treats me very well. He understands that I'm only doing this part-time, to help save money for my children's college fund."
"I have a naturally high voice. I'm also immature and submissive. The voice I use on the phone is somewhat a representation of those qualities. There's one specific voice tone I use when pretending to be sexually aroused. Imagine a Catholic schoolgirl getting de-virginized by her history teacher. 'Oh, oh, Mr. Johnson, it's so big! You're gonna hurt me!'"
"I really am not into guys. I'm into ladies. I really don't like when I get calls from guys for the simple fact that I'm not into them. I was at one point in my life but that boat has docked and bounced. I personally don't like dark-skin people. If I met them face to face and if they were dark-skin, I would get nasty with them — I just don't like them. My wife doesn't know I do this, but what she doesn't know won't hurt her, right?"
"To simulate a bed rocking, you can use certain things to cause that sound. Knocking the bed board against the wall, or knocking a chair against the table. Some clients like to hear the sound of your dick slapping against the phone. This can be done by actually slapping the dick against the phone, or tapping your two fingers against the mouthpiece (preferred) ... I have fun doing what I do. I share myself with individuals who're not getting what they need at home. I feel like I teach them how to please themselves, by telling them where to put their hands, and how to stroke themselves."
"I am a straight male who speaks to women. They want me. They want me to talk to them, and to take them to another world. I'm good at it. I'm a pro. A ladies' man. I speak to younger women. I speak to older women. I speak both Spanish and English. I have been thrown offers left and right. They want me to meet up and have my way with them, but I keep it only to phone conversations."
"I was young when I started in the phone sex world. I had no choice. My grandmother had gotten sick and I needed to be able to help her, and I still work and make good money. I wanted to do whatever she wanted — go shopping for her, take her to get her hair done, take her to the museum ... As a virgin, it was hard for me to talk about sex to horny men. I had to read books and watch porno films with my friends — they'd point at something on the screen and say, 'Use that in your phone calls!' ... I am a girl with a big heart that loves life, and loves people."
"I never thought I would work in the phone sex industry. All those years doing customer service, my customers would comment on my sexy voice. I thought I was being professional, not sexy. This work is customer service. It's just your customers leave with more than a smile."
"I'm 60 years old, have a B.A. in cultural anthropology from Columbia University, and [have been] married for 25 years. I have a son in his last years of college who lives at home. He's a 4.0 with a double major in English literature and religion. Men call me for an [infinite number] of reasons. Of course, they call to masturbate. I call it 'Executive Stress Relief.' It's not sex; it's a cocktail of testosterone, fueled by addiction to pornography, loneliness, and the need to hear a woman's voice.
