If you think phone sex=prostitution then you obviously know nothing about the industry.Talking about sex and having sex are completely different things.Some of the men who call do not even end up talking about sex at all.Some are lonely and want someone to talk to, some want advice, sometimes about sex sometimes not.You really should not criticize something you know nothing about.The phone sex industry is not for everyone, it takes a very open minded individual who is comfortable with his/her own sexuality in order to be successful.I was a pso for several years and I am not ashamed nor do I feel I did anything immoral or wrong.Some of the women on this board have been more verbally abusive than any caller I could have encountered while working the phones.lol.
And to any current or prospective phone actresses out there, ignore the "holier than thou" attitude you get from here.Do what you gotta do to provide for your families.If you are comfortable with your choice that is all that matters.Because it is your choice and don't let anyone else here tell you different.

As far as judging goes, I leave that up to God. But I wouldn't want to be you when your husband finds out (assuming he's in the dark about what's going on). Surely you don't think that he would approve? Either way, lieing is NEVER right. I suggest you 'hang up the phone' and go hug your baby and your husband and pray for forgiveness and move on to something you can be proud of. God Bless.

I must say I have been a phone actress for 2 years now and recently have begun to make 25.oo an hour at it and your husband is wrong and it is ignorant to believe that they can find us, yes, we are safely hidden it is technologically impossible for us to be found, so get off your high horse until you know what you are talking about. Then again ignorance is bliss you can take this and make excuses for your moral inaccuracies

Don't believe that you are safely hidden behind a blind phone number. If they want to track you down, they can. You are putting yourself horribly in danger. And since the original question referred to households with children, you also put your family in danger.

No one is exploiting women.Theses women are choosing this occupation of their own free will no one is forcing them.
These services are not promoted to "young boys" if a minor gains access to a phone sex number and an adults credit card to use, then that would be failure of a parent to supply adequate supervision in their home.
These phone calls are routed through sophisticated computer systems and callers are not able to "track you down" as you claim.And as far as the callers being "sickos"? Give me a break, most of them are normal everyday men.They could be your neighbor, your boss, even your own husband.Like I said in another post don't criticize something you know absoulutely nothing about.

ok ladies we seem to have gotten hung up on the whole phone sex thing.

heres another one, still related to the sex industry, but lets see how you feel about this one.

i used to sell sex toys, and naughty underware at home parties, (women only) infact in the four years i did this i only ever saw one guy at any of them and i did two or three parties a week.

so is this an ok job ? or a big no no ?

a lot of the parties were for hen nights (girl equivelent of a stag night, i'm not sure what you all call them =)

RaiinyDayz please understand you and your child are what matter the most right now, think you are doing what you need to do to take care of your child. Judgement on that decision can't be made unless we walk in your shoes and no one can.
You might think about an out and save girl save. I think you can make it in another business doing something you dont have to hide from your child in her future. Do not be ashamed and I am not saying you are wrong I do not think that, I am just saying right now it is a means to an end. It keeps food on the table and roof ovr your head, keep your eyes open for more opportunities.
I sell tons of things over the internet to stay home wiht my babies and help with bills I can help hook you up to a few things if you need a little help. Email me. I want to help not hinder!

Wow! I was looking for a Christian site for Spirit filled moms at home and boom! Its open country here huh?

Times are hard for sure. They always have been but what in the world is left of a woman after she does this for a living. And asks others not to judge. Who's judging who? Is God even importsnt in all this. Is He not able to do a little thing like find you decent work from home?

With all due respect to the women here who are unsaved and in need of a Savior, He has a better plan for you and its not about food and shelter. Its about Christ and women being able to stay at home and raise godly seed by faith in His Name. Jesus didn't say it would be easy. He siad it was right. No I don't want to offend anyone here but where is faith in Jesus Christ instead of the want ads?

I'm a newbie here and I may not make any friends here but ladies all the energy you are throwing to the evil one is amazingly misdirected.

Thanks but I don't need to be saved.Unfortunately it sometimes it is about food and shelter.Sometimes it's about being there to put your children on the bus and be there when they get off the bus.Sometimes it's about being able to pay for the little league program or having the flexible schedule to be able to volunteer to go on field trips.
I have had several homebased positions and none of them have earned me the income that I have made as a pso.It has enabled me to live in a decent safe area with good schools and was able to pay my vehicle off early.
Whos judging who you ask? Well here it's those who are self rightous and feel they have a right to tell everyone what is right or wrong.
I don't have a problem with the job because I am not uptight about sexuality and I know the difference between having sex and talking about sex.
I will decide what is right for me, thanks.You don't have to agree with my choices because that is exactly what they are MY choices.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to toss a few words in on this topic; I just finished reading every single post and boy, did that take awhile! )
I would like to thank seena, McPaige67, happyathome and many others for trying to work through the tangent arguments that developed in the early pages, and for their interesting points and ideas to bring us back on topic. (see pages 6-9)
I would like to point out that we have finally had someone post a response to seena’s request to clarify how working in the phone sex industry harms children. That was a big point under how being paid for phone sex harmed anyone, as asked in Cheryl’s opening questions.
On page 13, xkash04x posted a reply on Oct. 6/2004 that gives a real, first person example of what happens when the kid finds out about what mommy does. And Guess What? She turned out just fine. And Guess What? I quote: “in all honesty i respect my mother for what she did.” So the claim that this particular job hurts your children really has no basis. Not only has no one (in over four years!) been able to come up with a concrete example of when it has actually damaged their children or their family (or even families of someone they know), we have a person who has specifically told us that it didn’t damage her, in fact, she respects her mother for accomplishing everything she did.
Kinda says it all, doesn’t it?
Personally, I agree that this job, just as when you consider taking any job, should be considered carefully, thoroughly, and fairly – especially with your spouse, if you have one. Whatever job you take will affect your life, how you divide your energies and time, so therefore s/he should have some input on it, right? Or do people think spouses are just for doing chores? ;o) Many people have agreed that this particular job, since it deals with such a taboo topic as sex, really does require some extra consideration – ya gotta be comfortable in your own skin and what you’re doing, and ya gotta be sure that everyone’s in agreement, and ya gotta be sure your kids are kept separate from your work. Makes sense, right?
Anyhow, just thought I’d summarize a bit for people who are dropping in and don’t want to read it all like me ) Note, I am ignoring the religious element to the debate, as it has been quite thoroughly discussed – I’m not interested in provoking another page’s worth of religious contention.
Thanks everyone!
~ Sharon

I do not see anything wrong with this type of work - its safe - your not hurting anyone & you get paid to talk "act" and you dont have to go to auditions day in & day out - LOL
I told my hubby about this to get his opinion & he thought it was histrical! LOL LOL - like the Aerosmith video ( big woman with kids running around and a sultry sexy voice doing just this!) LOL I asked him if hed think it was cheating & he laughed & said babe - "your home,safe & when i get home You might not let me get dinner first!" LOL LOL
I say - if your kids are in school, you do not have to go out to the sleezy bars & get grouped for the $$, your not giving out pers. info. & not carrying on after the "call" then go for it!!
Have fun!
life is too short & hard to put our kids welfare in danger in the hands of others to care for them when there are alternatives!!

Wowee...

I guess you could say this is a rhetorical question-but I have to wonder along with others who have posted here, have you christian women personally reached out to those you criticize here helping in some way, large or small, with the material needs some of these ladies post about? Have you pm'd them or emailed them to see if there is some way you can help tangibly? Or do you feel that giving your "opinion" is enough to "convict" them into repentence for their own benefit and that of their children?
But I'm praying for them" you say. Alright, that's no small thing, but it can also be a good cop-out too can't it? You think that's enough when you could really DO something, those of you who have some spare resources that is.

Now, there's another sort of phone acting job I'd like to address: Don't look too closely at the preachers you watch on tv and their incomes, where they get all their money, what they do with it, how they train their telephone bank people to answer the phones, the scripts they require to be used, the methodology they train with, with the main intention being to keep the caller on the phone long enough to "pledge" seed money they don't have so God will bless them with an "increase". Guess what? The dear souls who pray with you on the telephone when you call weeping and sobbing about your own pathetic situation and needs, as genuine as YOU really may be, the person who takes your call isn't required by the television ministry to even be a believer (because there are laws against not hiring people of the same religious belief as you) but he/she IS required to get you to believe THEM and has it all scripted out and memorized step by step, designed to get you to fork over money you can only have faith you'll have at a later date or empty your bank account right then or both. Yes I'm generalizing about televangelists but I also applied for those phone jobs for several bigtime ministries at different times in my life. They SHOW you these things if they like you well enough to give you the tour of their facilities. And yes, some of these "ministries" use home workers.

Think about that the next time you get the urge to pray with your hand on the tv screen...

Hooray Resmyrranda!!! I do not do this work personally,but have considered it because I need to work at home for medical reasons.I've been following this thread off & on for awhile now and have felt such disappointment in how so many here felt the need to judge other women in choices they have made to stay home and be with their families doing an "acting job" that hurts nobody and enables them to pay their bills and put food on the table.
I am sure many of these women who judge watch soap operas,go to movies and read romance novels,all three are filled with talk and scenes of a sexual nature.IT IS ENTERTAINMENT,and reading and watching them is a choice.Phone acting is a job,a safe job done in the comfort of ones home.These women are not half or totally nude on a movie or tv screen acting,but entertaining adults on the telephone.They are comfortable in their sexuality and seem to be making a nice living talking on the phone anonymously,harming none.
As compassionate human beings why not try being supportive of other women rather than judging.

JC

Well, I read most of the ongoings and my thoughts are this: Some of us have many skills that will allow us opportunities. Some of us have skills but are limited physically when it comes to being out in the workforce. Some of us are struggling mothers who only want to provide the best upbringing for our children. If phone sex does not harm the child, and the mother can be at home then who are we to challenge a women who's only opportunity and best skill is to provide entertainment? Although the choice to do the job (and it is a choice) may not be for us, why do we feel we have to judge. As my mother said, "Walk a day in my shoes" and that says it all. All circumstances are different as our our lives. Lets remember we are all here reading and posting, sharing and learning for a common goal. It seems somewhere in the thread that was lost.
A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
Peace.

I think that it is smart. I don't do it but I heard there is good money. I respect anything that anyone is willing to do (except one thing) to support their families and spend more time with them.

Thank you.

I just found this site tonight and have been going through all the posts. Its occurred to me that everyone keeps referring to phone actresses as someone who is assisting someone with an addiction, which in turn is breaking up families and causing extreme distress for their significant others and family. Did it occur to any of you how ridiculous that sounds. That is like condemning someone who works in a factory bottling beer or in the clothing industry making g-strings and teddies. Unfortunately this is a difficult world to live in where it is difficult to find a job that you like. I work in a call center for a cell phone carrier talking to people all day. I have just recently begun looking into becoming a phone actress. When I go to work, it is expecting to be yelled at all day long. I really hate going to work. So I'm sorry if the thought of me taking calls at home from men who are looking for a little fun without being bullied and yelled at is offending to some people. I believe the saying goes that those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw the first stone. Everyone has problems, no relationship is perfect. Believe me, I am a single mother of 2 kids. My daughters father left me for another woman. He was the love of my life and I would have much rather him had called a phone actress if that is what made him happy. So everyone out there who condemns without knowledge should be ashamed of yourselves. It is gods place to judge, not yours. If anyone would like to talk or knows of a legitimate phone actress job I would love to hear from you. asweet79@hotmail.com

I just found this site tonight and would like to take just a minute to express my views. I am a single mother of 2 kids. I am also taking care of my 70 yr old grandmother. I think that everyone who is condemning phone actresses as being the person that is destroying relationships and families really need to wake up. You are saying that being a phone actress is assisting with an addiction. So do you feel the same about people who work in a bottle factory that pkg beer, or the people who work at clothing stores that sell g-strings or teddies. I think that the phrase is "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw the first stone" is appropriate. No ones lives or relationships are perfect. Do you use condoms or birth control because that is also not right in gods eyes. Have you had your tubes tied or your husband been snipped because that is also against gods views. I work in a call center for a cellular phone company 40 hours a week being yelled at and bullied. I recently started looking into a job as a phone actress, because I can barely keep a roof over our head and food on the table. I make $500 less a month than what I need just to pay the bills, that's not even adding in expenses for food on the table or gas in the car. So condemn me if you wish but I will do what I have to and you can do what you have to. No one is asking you to do it and no one is forcing you to believe in our point of views. We just want you to understand that not all of us have a choice in life and its given to you to do with it what you can. So yes, I will do what I have to do to make my life better and to take care of my precious babies.

I just found this site tonight and would like to take just a minute to express my views. I am a single mother of 2 kids. I am also taking care of my 70 yr old grandmother. I think that everyone who is condemning phone actresses as being the person that is destroying relationships and families really need to wake up. You are saying that being a phone actress is assisting with an addiction. So do you feel the same about people who work in a bottle factory that pkg beer, or the people who work at clothing stores that sell g-strings or teddies. I think that the phrase is "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw the first stone" is appropriate. No ones lives or relationships are perfect. Do you use condoms or birth control because that is also not right in gods eyes. Have you had your tubes tied or your husband been snipped because that is also against gods views. I work in a call center for a cellular phone company 40 hours a week being yelled at and bullied. I recently started looking into a job as a phone actress, because I can barely keep a roof over our head and food on the table. I make $500 less a month than what I need just to pay the bills, that's not even adding in expenses for food on the table or gas in the car. So condemn me if you wish but I will do what I have to and you can do what you have to. No one is asking you to do it and no one is forcing you to believe in our point of views. We just want you to understand that not all of us have a choice in life and its given to you to do with it what you can. So yes, I will do what I have to do to make my life better and to take care of my precious babies.

Let's look at the bigger picture...some of you feel that phone sex is wrong, some of you do it so your kids are safe at home, which is admirable--much more admirable than putting your kids in daycare...but what about other WAH jobs--say inbound customer service for W*** where you are required to "upsell" which in my book means harass callers into buying a product? Is that any better? Or what about transcription for Doctors who prescribe things for patients that aren't medically necessary so they can make even more money for the insurance companies? There is more to morality than sex. Are the companies that you work for investing in something that you don't believe in--such as pro-choice or pro-life? Would you quit if something your company did was wrong like the CEO embezzeling funds? How far does your belief in right and wrong go? Yes, its easy to pick on the phone actresses because their job is the most visible, but are you ready to examine your own self and your own employer more closely? "judge not lest ye be judged"

I find it so amusing that some think of phone sex nothing short of prostitution. Then let's throw in a couple verses from the Bible and soon we're all going to be on our knees - Hell Fire and Brimstone! Oh ye almighy!

Wow, that is really judgemental. No matter what your excuse is or the way you want to twist it around, what it comes down to dear Jewel, is that you're talking about something and judging someone on something that you have no clue about. If only you had the guts to get on the phone and give a person pleasure. I must tell you that you've given me pleasure just by reading your ignorant comments. They're funny - I'm amused.

It's so good to hear that we are all in your prayers. May the Lord bless you as well.

There isn't anything wrong with making a living by talking on the phone, no matter what's being said. (as long as no one is being hurt and everything is kept honest) It's a living. I'm sure that the phone sex operators have just as much dignity and class as anyone else and possibly a little bit more than yourself? I don't know so I won't judge.

What's funny, Christians like yourself, they like to "bash" others, I've experienced in my line of work. I'm a psychic and spiritualist. For someone who claims to be so holy, your words sure spread alot of disgust and hatred by being so judgemental and trying to make others feel inferior because you happen not to agree with their line of work. Step out of your sugar coated world and revisit the real world, Sugar.

WAHMs' who are doing what they have to do and want to do - MORE POWER TO YOU! Express yourself girls and make a living! There's only ONE person you have to answer to, and that's God. Not people like Jewel or anyone else for that matter.

Good luck to all and brightest blessings.

As a Husband,and a Father who has a Wife, that does phone sex for a living 60 plus hrs. a wk.I can honestly say I have no problem with it.After my wife was forced out of her job in retail where she was making 40+ a yr.we had to do something to make ends meet, we live in a small town in Ga.where plants and industrey in general, are packing up or closing all togather.Infact I came up with the idea Myself, found the website, and gave Her the phone number to call.Bottom line,its
talking on the phone, She does that anyway,if see wants to get into it Herself, so,She is Her own person.Now She makes almost what She was making before as I found a job that even pays ya 7.00 hr. down time (there has been no down time )Maybe its Her age 23, but She dosnt mind going to work anymore because it a short walk from the chair to the computer,She gets to home school or oldest, and spend lots of time at the park... with both. As fare as God is concerned yes phone sex is a sin, but so is likeing your sisters ride a little to much, a sin, is a sin, and God forgives all. sorry about the spelling (:
