    What are peoples views on the Phone Sex industry? Is this a taboo subject?

    I'm thinking of writing a Hub about the Phone Sex industry, and how to become a phone actress - is this too raunchy for Hubpages? Will people be offended?

    It is something that fascinates me - I'm quite a liberal person and I see no problem with phone sex - however I've heard people liken it to prostitution - and link it with infidelity.

    I'm curious to hear what peoples opinions are around the subject?

    This is probably a taboo question for some, but I am not aware of the industry. However I have had phone sex with my boyfriend. Don't worry if you are talking about something that might offend their "morals" or we would not have anything valid to say. I say good on you girl! There are a lot of liberal people. I have heard of men and maybe some women getting "addicted" to 1-800, #'s.. but no in my opinion it is not prostitution, unless it is physical touching and a lot of ladies have to resort to this type of job to pay the bills. "Sexting" is more the prob these days, you never know the tone...maybe all the zombies need to hear the voice of their "lover" to feel affection. Good old fashioned love letters would be sweet smile

    If it's an informative article about the industry and what may motivate the phone actress and clients it should be okay. As long as the hub does not contain any overtly sexual sample conversations it shouldn't be disabled.
    Naturally anything sexual in nature when offend some people especially if it is out of the realm of marriage. My guess is most people would consider phone sex with anyone other than their mate/spouse to be a form of cheating or soliciting sex with a prostitute. The same could be said for those who engage in webcam sex with strangers. In fact the advent of computers with built in cameras may have taken a slice out of the phone sex industry. Men are visual creatures for the most part.
    Paying money to have someone bring you to orgasm will be considered prostitution or selling sexual services in the eyes of most people whether it's on the phone, via a webcam, or in person. However I don't believe phone sex or webcam sex is illegal the way physical sex for pay is.

    I admit I have a friend or two, females, that work in the industry.
    Believe it or not, they say 90+% of the conversations aren't even sexual. Men apparently call the lines just to talk to a woman they believe is attractive. Many conversations are much more like being a psychiatrist than a sexual partner.

    When it is sexual, I am told, its usually some weird fantasy that is barely sexual. Some men fantasize about being shrunken and eaten, others about being berated and mistreated. It's a weird world out there.

    So I think to liken it to prostitution is taking it a bit far.

    Personally, I don't take offense to the idea, but you're right, some readers on hub pages may.

      Touchy subject but interesting answer. I hope this  finds a way to make it a real issue in today's world. Marriage is a institution set on old values, if women are out their earning their keep, we have the right to defend.  Equality still...

    In all honesty, I would definitely be interested in reading a hub about this. I am always finding interesting topics and this one definitely piques my interest.  Please write it!
