Software platforms were custom written to handle money collection and transfer, connecting caller and sex worker though neither could see anything but the platform's phone number, and metering the connection.Details vary significantly from one platform to another, but the provider may be given a personal page on the platform to use however she (sometimes he) wishes.Leonard convinced magazine owner Carl Ruderman to purchase more of these numbers and the business began to be successful using the magazine to promote the service.
Verizon provided billing services to calls made in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine.AT&T and MCI offered nationwide collection services, with a cap of per call.The incentives for providers were then reversed; rather than earning money from keeping the customer on the line (orgasm delayed), they earned more from bringing the caller to orgasm quickly, so as to move on rapidly to another call.Unused minutes were rarely usable on a second call.The sexually explicit conversation takes place between two or more persons via telephone, especially when at least one of the participants masturbates or engages in sexual fantasy.
Phone sex conversation may take many forms, including: guided fantasy, sexual sounds, narrated and enacted suggestions; sexual anecdotes and confessions; candid expression of sexual fantasies, feelings, or love, and/or discussion of very personal and sensitive sexual topics.
Phone sex is a conversation between two or more people on the phone where one or more of the individuals is describing the act of sex.
Phone sex takes imagination on both parties' part; virtual sex is difficult if the operator does not put the images in the head of the caller and the caller must be open to the pleasure as well.
Leonard recorded her own voice informing callers of the contents of the next issue of High Society magazine before its publication.
Later she recorded others such as Annie Sprinkle "talking sexy".
Originally phone sex services consisted of a managed network of dispatchers (live or automated) and erotic performers.
