With this in mind, spoke to Jack, a libertarian socialist who worked for a sex-texting company during 2005. The company did 'sex texting' - basically people would text sexual messages in to you (which you recieved on a computer, in a chat room type interface), and you would respond - the messages going directly to their mobiles.Obviously, in all but exceptional circumstances, these messages were of an extreme sexual nature.
I got paid around 10 pence for each text I sent - the customer got charged £1.50 for each one (the mobile network took around a third of this, the rest went to the employer).Then you'd flirt a bit for a couple more, and soon enough (in almost all cases) be having sex text.A few people just wanted to 'chat' - although this was very much a minority.At first, it was easy, and a bit of a laugh - as well as funny talking point with my friends, but this didn't last for very long... This was paid either by paypal or direct bank transfer, and I never had any problems with lack of payment. Firstly, due to checking and updating notes and also getting information that matched the client (to keep them interested, I had to pretend to be local, so had to do stuff like look up info on local pubs etc.if I was asked where I liked to go), this rather never ever happened, because I wasn't constantly doing the 'paid' bit of the job.And often, the person who had worked as this girl wasn't working at that time, and so you would have to pretend to be this person - in fact the allocation of clients was almost totally random, so with the majority of clients you were continuing on from someone elses conversation, pretending to be them.
This was much harder as you had to spend time checking and updating notes (which was unpaid), and could be very tricky with clients who had long, long histories. At first, this sounded amazing, especially as I could type them (140 characters average) with a keyboard - I figured I could average 3-4 texts a minute - which works out at over 20 quid an hour.
Last week, GMB member Irene Everett won the first ever unfair dismissal case for a sex worker, against Essex-based Datapro Service Limited.
She had worked on their live adult chat lines for eight years.
The company got most of its clientelle from a daily advert in the Daily Sport, but traded under various different names - such as 'Local Girls 4 U'. I was pretty depressed and had been out of work for a few months, and got told about it by one of my friends.
I lacked staying power, and only stuck at it for about 3 months full time before it started giving me serious problems, and I had to give it up. Obviously, at first it sounded hilarious - I got to sit at home, pretending to be a girl, and getting guys off, and for (what looked like) not too bad money.
In the end with all this factored in, I was probably only making £3-4 an hour on average, and maybe £6 an hour if I was busy.
