Is Phone Sex Still Relevant?

In the age of the Internet, the phone sex industry became confronted with the fact that it might become obsolete. After all, with (often free) Internet porn at the click of a button, and the infinite choice of online visual pleasure, it’s easy to assume that phone sex would become outdated in just a matter of time.

Many people consider phone sex to be old-fashioned in this rapidly developing, high-tech era. The phone sex industry has definitely drastically changed over the past 20 years, but to the surprise of many, it did not go belly up. In fact, phone sex hotlines managed to stay in business and continue to thrive and remain a flourishing multi-million dollar industry.

What’s the key to their success, and how did the phone sex industry manage to develop in the age of Internet porn?

More visibility due to digital marketing strategies

Phone sex operators are no longer limited to the phone, but can also find clients online and incorporate online activities into their services. The Internet actually improved the phone sex industry, because clients can now browse through phone sex operator profiles in all kinds of different media and can use their smartphones to call directly from the websites and ads.

Phone sex operators today don’t just market themselves in magazines and on TV commercials anymore, but also promote themselves online through websites, blogs, vlogs, and social media. By investing in these platforms, phone sex operators can easily build a solid and loyal client base.

No Internet needed

On the other hand, sex hotlines also continue to do well because the Internet is not necessary for this service. This creates a bigger demand for phone sex because the millions of people who still live without everyday Internet access are able to call sex hotlines even though they can’t engage in the Internet sex industry. The same goes for people in areas with very slow our outdated connections and data infrastructure.

Anonymity

Just like Internet Porn, Phone Sex offers you a strong sense of anonymity. This is something that is still extremely important to people. The thought that you can be whoever you want to be and that the person on the other end of the line can’t see you, is liberating and comforting for many people. 

After all, a lot of people still feel like paying for sex is a taboo, and are ashamed to be seen doing it. The beauty of phone sex is that you still feel connected to the person you’re talking to because you can hear their voice.

Antidote to overstimulation

A lot of people today suffer from overstimulation of the senses. The antidote to overstimulation of the senses? just the voice and the imagination.

With visual inputs coming at us from all around, every single day, it can be a relief to switch off the visual aspect for a while and just sink into the sexy sound of a total stranger’s voice, while letting your imagination do the rest. The freedom to create your own images is fulfilling for people who, for example, have very specific sexual preferences and fantasies.
And adding an interactive element to what is basically erotic ASMR, beats listening to "raunchy" Youtube videos any day.

The price is right

Though prices for phone sex vary per company and per phone sex operator, the rates tend to be good. People usually pay a few cents a minute or pay for a specific block of time for a personalized one-on-one session. You also have more costly services, but choices can be made to a listeners discretion. You can always google a service that fits what you are willing to spend.

One-on-one time with a real person

Phone sex is a great, and risk-free way, to have actual one-on-one time with a real sex worker. You can keep coming back to the same Phone Sex Operator and it will feel more interactive and personalized than watching classic porn. 
Just Like Cam Performers, you can ask your favorite Phone Sex Operator if they are willing to use interactive toys and play with you over distance.
If you have a remarkable fetish, you might feel bashful confronting a partner or sex worker with it. But the sense of invisibility will allow you to dive deep into roleplaying and safely give a voice to your most sexual desires.

Companionship and Sharing

Did you know Phone sex hotlines are not just used for sex?
In fact, many people call these hotlines because they just feel the need to talk to someone. A lot of people find it easier to talk to a complete stranger than to those closest to them about their personal issues, and others simply don’t have anyone to talk to.

People who call phone sex operators for companionship would have a harder time sharing their stories if the person on the other line could actually see them. That’s why the phone is such a good medium: it provides safe distance as an emotional buffer, while still allowing for a personal touch.
