    Making money at home from sex chat lines 16th Mar 12 at 3:55 PM
    There was a thread regarding this but I can't find it anywhere on here?

    Anyone know any companies out there that do this, I'm male so either straight or gay lines I'm looking for.

    you haven't perchance been watching that Channel4 documentary, have you?
    they seem to be populated entirely by women, so you may need to shave your legs!

    but, at around £100 an hour for good clients.......

    From the Q&As on the sites I have looked at, these companies don't recruit men.

    I think you need to google specific mens gays lines instead (which of course are not the ones I am looking at!)

    I think that was some exaggeration about the amount of money they got paid. One woman claimed she earned £500 a night, yet was doing her own decorating between telephone calls, and using Tesco Value emulsion on her tiny little basic kitchenette!

    That was a put up job if I ever I saw one. Those sex chat operators earn peanuts....

    But Breadline Betty!! Just because she looks after her money with great care, doesn't mean she earns a pittance! Perhaps she puts it all aside to spend on good stuff rather than wasting it paying a bloke to paint her walls. Isn't that the whole point of this entire site, after all??

    Some of those sex chat lines don't involve talk, but just text. Not that i've ever used one, you understand. It's just that i remember someone on that last thread mentioning it. So if the Op is a guy he could just do text and call himself BigBertha or something.

    What it may grow to in time, I know not what.

    I worked a chat line for a while but all the ones I researched were only hiring women. It's not easy and you get some very strange people!!!
    I didnt make much but If you can keep them on the phone then it's a money maker. They were just too strange for me!

    You have no chance as a man, a good friend of mine (female) works for a company doing phone chat and shes done it for a few years now, but it is pocket money, she does it in her spare time when her kids are at school, I think that channel 4 program was just made as a laugh, I seriously doubt anyone makes a fortune apart from the people who run the chatlines themselves.
    Remember if you did by some amazing chance find a company to take you on, you have to pay tax on it.
  • loopylooks
    Queenie01 or cherylsurrey would you mind sending me a private message with the name of the company they work for?

    Thank you kindly

    But then MSE isn't in the business of being a moral guardian or marriage counsellor. The forum is "Up Your Income" so it's a perfectly valid discussion.

    If it was the Relationships forum then yes, it would certainly be out of place, but i personally can't really see an issue.

    Do we know why women don't need to call men on the end of a chat line?

    Because we are normally in charge of the finances and actually read the 1.50pm sign at the bottom lol

    I'm male and I used to do webcam and phone.

    It was very good money, however now that I am 23 my chances have gone right down and there is little work for me as I am considered "old".

    I think it's hard for men on these types of lines, unless you get the right company and as there are so many I don't even know which one to suggest.

    Hi, if anyone has any info about good text companies to work for PLEASE could they PM me? Thank you!
