Before the internet, there were dirty mags, and phone sex adverts. Remember when this was a common site in the big UK cities? I often wonder if men actually went into these phone boxes, looked at the sexy pictures of half naked women and actually called the line from the phone box! It’s quite an alarming thought these days, I mean, imagine leaving the pub on a friday night and needing a taxi. No mobile phones, so you had to use a phone box. Imagine all of them occupied by horny men with one hand pressing the receiver to their ear while the other was inside the trousers. Hehe – I am too young to have been out and about at that time of night when this was a common site, but it does get you thinking about how far we’ve come.

Personally, I’m quite glad to be writing a phone sex blog here, rather than traipsing around London’s phone boxes, pasting half naked pictures of my self to the wall. And also – I’m guessing that this was technically vandalism, even though it was common practice. It would have been just my luck to get caught by a policeman, well actually now I think about it, some of my sex dreams start out like that, but I’m sure it would be different in real life.

Even though most of us have grown up in an internet age, there’s still something intimate, personal and downright exciting about phone sex. I think, for those of us with an imagination, we can take ourselves to sexual places that we can’t just by watching porn. There’s also a lack of intimacy when you are watching two oiled up plastic actors from LA do each other like robots.

Looking at these slightly seedy cards, adorning the inside of this 90s telephone box, it gets you thinking about life pre internet. I’m sure everyone here enjoys the fact we can see tits or cocks on demand, but as things have evolved, why do so many people still enjoy phone sex?

The organisation, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington say that phone sex still makes telephone companies nearly $500 million per year in the USA alone. (Source, Wikipedia)

Why is phone sex still so popular?

I can only speculate, but from my point of view, any time I want phone sex I can get it, and yes, I enjoy porn as well but porn doesn’t replace phone sex. A flirtatious conversation with another human being who’s full attention is on you scratches an itch that porn movies never will. After all, porn was freely available before the internet, just ask anyone who was at school in the 90s. Video tapes were passed around and copied, there was always one tech geek with an AV setup at home, and still phone sex was popular, as it is now.

From a guys point of view, sure you can have a wank any time you want, but can you get a girl to help you have a wank anytime you feel like it? And if you can, how long would it take you to reach that stage… probably hours. I get calls from guys with a hard cock in hand, needing some personal attention to help close the deal, and because, if I’m logged in to the phone sex line, I’m already horny anyway, I can whip my knickers off (if I’m waring any) and join in the fun.

Aren’t webcams better? I hear some of you say. Camming is fun, sure. I’ve been a bit of a tart on my webcam in the past, but if you are a guy, and you have a hard cock, persuading a real woman to help you on cam is tricky and time consuming. You have to have a cyber sex buddy willing to do that with you, and they won’t be in the mood when you are all the time, so you head off to a commercial cam site like www.Imlive.com (which is a damn good live webcam site by the way). But there are two things about cam websites that make phone sex different. You can be whoever you want on a phone sex line. The voice is sexy, and your mind does the rest. It’s half fantasy, which means your imagination can go wild. Also phone sex is generally a hell of a lot easier and quicker to get, not to mention cheaper. All our lines are charged at 36p per minute (plus network extras) while you can spend pounds per minute on a webcam chat. And there’s no registration or credit card payments with our phone sex lines, the lines just charge your phone bill.

So in the internet age, where hard core sex is available on tap, when people ask, why the hell to people still like phone sex, maybe this gives you some insight. Of course, the only way to find our for sure it to experiment, so if you’ve not tried it, have a go. You’ll be surprised at what a sexy voice on the telephone can do to you.
