Thats what photographer Phillip Toledano learned while snapping pictures of sex simulating operators for his new book Phonesex (Twin Palms).
Toledano photographed nearly 30 phonesex pros of all ages and backgrounds including college students and a 60-year-old mom and was surprised to discover the complexity of their job.
He says phonesex operators must have very vivid imaginations in order to make their customers freaky fantasies come true.
They must also understand human psychology because more often than not, they turn into guidance counselors mid-session.
For example, Toledano talked to a phonesex operator who had a customer shoot himself right in the middle of their conversation.
Another phonesex rep helped a happy couple conceive a baby by talking dirty to a caller everytime he went to the sperm bank.
Toledano explains, These operators form very intimate relationships with their customers. Sometimes their customers call them just to talk.
With the rise of the Internet, Toledano fears that the phonesex business only has a few years left before it goes down.
