My Life on the Line

Posted: 24/02/2013 23:00

For A Good Time, Call... is without doubt the funniest and most outrageously true-to-life film made to date. And I should know - I felt as though it was built around my life as a sex chat girl! So much of the story mirrors my own experiences.

The film is about two girls who, due to circumstance and against all odds, embark on a very successful sex chat line from their own home. The film is out on DVD on 25 February 2013.

The similarities between the film and myself are endless: from working for a company, then starting up their own sex chat line; using sex toys for sound effects; even the callers phoning from bizarre places such as taxis, offices and toilets at work; talking about stuff the girls have never actually experienced themselves; building a rapport with some of the regular callers (something which I myself have been 'doing' for over four years); the main character training her flat mate to talk dirty (as I have been training girls for the past year now); and, most surprisingly of all sharing writing with one of Kate's callers to which I have gone one step further and have written a book with one of my ex callers, Alix James! (He, of course, being a writer himself!)

That's not to mention decorating going on while doing sex chat: I was actually filmed by Channel 4 as part of a documentary, My Phone Sex Secrets painting my kitchen wall while taking a call with one of my regulars!

The actors are excellent; so funny and talented. They complimented each other beautifully in their clash of personalities. Just an amazingly accurate portrayal of life as a phone sex operator! It's an absolute must-see comedy and will without a doubt broaden every woman's sexual horizons. If you ever wanted to know what happens on a chat line this film, without question, reveals all.

While the subject matter is rather unique, phone sex has been around since the 1980s. Once performed by operators at call centers, now, thanks to telephone technology, it can now take place in the chat girl's own home. The phone system is such you can 'log on' and 'log off' when it suits as the working hours are any time you like, 24/7. Great if you are an insomniac!

As for setting up your own chat line from home that's a pretty straightforward thing to do and, just as the two girls did in the film, you can make big bucks this way. I myself made £7k per month and that was me just working alone. I was the only girl my callers chatted with - no matter the age, size or hair color they wanted the girl to be! And, on occasion I did two-girl calls. Now that was a talent. It really tested my skills as an actress because at the end of the day that's what you are; an actress helping the caller act out his or her fantasy. To be a good chat girl all you need is a wild imagination and a sexy voice.

For me, however, the one thing they didn't cover was the 'Agony Aunt' side of the chat girl. Quite often a caller would come through to talk about any sexual hang-ups they had. Or sometimes even just relationship advice! I guess guys find it easier to talk to a faceless voice. I know from all my years of doing sex chat that guys find it hard to discuss incidents that happened to them in their younger days. Some men just can't talk to a therapist about abuse they suffered when they were children. So, quite often you, the chat girl do give relationship advice, counseling and even occasionally become a sex therapist to the caller!

This particular side of sex chat has always been of most importance to me. I am not just a dirty talker, I am a very good listener and believe me, I've heard it all! I never judge or ridicule. I am there for them in whatever capacity they want me to be.

Most people ask me: "Why do guys use phone sex as a form of sexual release?" Well, that's easy. In a world so consumed with not offending anyone, and not being allowed to be themselves, for those few minutes they share with me they can be whoever they want to be and just to let themselves go - and I have the ability to take them to that secret world of sexual desires and help release them of all their demons that haunt them daily, allowing them to go about their everyday lives as happier and more fulfilled men.
