8 Reasons Why Being a Phone Sex Operator is The Best Job During Covid19

"I almost feel guilty that my income has skyrocketed since the pandemic," says Marissa P. in her October consultation. 

Marisa found her way to Total Lip Service in March of this year when the global pandemic first struck. Even before her full completion of the Phone Sex Operator Custom Program with Total Lip Service, she was already earning as a PSO. Luckily for her, by the time her job reduced her hours, she could quit because she was already making a full-time income as a Phone Sex Operator. She went from a call center floor manager earning $34,000 a year to a phone sex operator earning $32,000 in her first six months. 

"I trained three months for forty hours a week at my old job, and one day for fun, I calculated that time and came to 480 hours!" she exclaimed. "I can't believe I'm making double with just 6 or 7 hours of training! Not to mention I only take calls about 15 hours a week, so in literally less than half the time, I'm making double." 

While business is booming for phone sex operators, the global pandemic has many people worldwide wondering where their next paycheck will come from. Many companies are laying people off left and right with plans for further job cuts. According to the New York Times, 22 million people lost their jobs in the spring, and there are predictions of even more layoffs soon. 

Right now, more than ever, it is time to find a gig that is not only virtual but also something that can withstand an economic crisis during and post-COVID. 

It's important to know that while most industries are crashing, some are thriving. The virtual sex industry is one of the few industries thriving amid hardship. Many thought of phone sex operators as a thing of the past until Total Lip Service started creating and bringing more attention to phone sex operators making six and seven figures even pre-COVID. In this blog post, I will discuss eight reasons to become a phone sex operator right now. 

Even during quarantine and shutdowns, Phone Sex Operators can still earn a substantial income

COVID has been bad for many businesses, and that’s an understatement. However, the phone sex operator business has largely been unscathed. In fact, business is booming with loads of callers looking for virtual affection during these lonely times. As a result, PSOs have been making good money especially during shutdowns when most callers are marooned in their homes with no sexual partners. 

Because the service is virtual, there are no COVID risks. As a matter of fact, you will be reaping big during this pandemic.  You can receive calls from pretty much anywhere and make decent money pandering to the whims of callers from around the world. Callers know they can get affection with no risk of infection. It doesn’t matter what time zones you are in, there will always be a caller somewhere wishing to get their rocks off over your sultry voice. 

It’s the perfect avenue to make clean money during this pandemic. The only ‘negative’ you can think of is what to do with the amount of free time on your hands and all the money. You won’t have to worry about when the pandemic will end or how it is affecting business. In fact, you will be secretly hoping it doesn’t end as you smile all the way to the bank!

Freedom and Flexibility 

Most phone sex operators can work from a cell phone, meaning they can work from virtually anywhere. While many people are losing their jobs, more and more people are becoming phone sex operators because of the flexibility of where and when you can work. This is perfect for someone who is now trying to balance homeschooling their little ones and working at the same time. Unlike most jobs, as a phone sex operator you can choose your hours. Since it's over the phone, it's even possible to take calls while at home or even while you travel.

One PSO told us she likes to drive to the lake and take calls in her car while enjoying the view. Another one takes phone calls from her car in her driveway, all while donning pajamas and bland t-shirts. Phone sex operators truly have unlimited freedom and flexibility. 

You also get to spend more time with your family. Think about it this way: Before the pandemic, you probably had to go to an office and leave your little ones until later in the day. As a PSO, you don't need an office. Plenty of the people we have trained at Total Lip Service love the convenience of taking phone sex calls just one room away from their living room.  They can therefore be with their family for more hours while making more money. It is a luxury not many can afford.

Phone sex lines are busy with an influx of Phone Sex Callers due to the pandemic. 

"I used to get a handful of calls a day, which was okay because I can keep one caller on the line for a long amount of time. Now calls are a lot more frequent, and I'm getting a lot of first-time callers," says Lisa, who's been an operator for three years now. 

More than ever, people have to resort to virtual interactions if they want to interact with another person outside their family or home unit. Because of this, many men have to seek companionship and even extramarital relationships virtually. Total Lip Service conducted a survey of 200 strippers and escorts, and 86% of them reported a dramatic income decrease since the pandemic hit. On the contrary, we surveyed 280 Phone Sex Operators, and 78% reported a dramatic increase in call volume. So while many jobs are cutting back on employees, phone sex lines desperately need operators to cover the significant influx of phone sex patrons. 

During this pandemic, people have lost their jobs and are going through a tough time. You will be surprised by the number of lonely men out there looking for a sultry voice to soothe their ears. All they need is someone to make them feel alive. As a phone sex operator, you can be the voice and get a hefty pay while you're at it. 

Phone sex clients will pay your bills without ever seeing you. 

This is a much preferable option versus having to join the millions applying for rental assistance, filing for bankruptcy, or suffering through foreclosures.  Many of our Total Lip Service PSO Program graduates reported that a phone sex caller paid their mortgages, car notes, rent, down payments, groceries, school supplies, and medical bills. One operator told us she has a loyal client that has paid her rent and car note every month since the pandemic hit. Not one of the customers has seen the operator, and most don't know what the operator looks like. 

*Please note this survey was conducted on Total Lip Service's trained operators, and this is a PSO skill taught in our Phone Sex 101 Course. To keep yourself and your identity safe, please make sure you know what you are doing because this could go horribly wrong, putting you and the careers of many operators in danger if done incorrectly. Our Phone Sex 101 Course teaches our trainees how to stay safe and conduct their business in both smart and profitable ways. 

Trained Phone Sex Operators Earn $2 Per Minute

The Economic Policy Institute states that the average American makes $19.33 per hour, which pales compared to a trained Phone Sex Operator earning $120+ per hour for talking on the phone. This means the average person takes six hours to earn what a phone sex operator earns in just one hour—leaving more time to help the kiddos with homework or take some much needed outdoor time. It's no wonder that many people are trading in their current professions and training to become phone sex operators.  

Talk to Fun Interesting New People

Working as a PSO is an opportunity to engage in fun [and erotic] conversations with all sorts of people interested in stigmatized fantasies. Many of our trainees love the connection they create with clients. It is a chance to meet interesting new people every day and get to hear what drives their fantasies.  This type of virtual connection is fulfilling, and PSOs certainly enjoy the 'therapy' they provide for your clients. It could be the trigger you needed to spice up your own love life and probably make your sex life more interesting. 

You will love the connection and fulfillment that comes from providing satisfactory services to your clients. Sometimes, it is the things that people cannot do that turn them on. As a PSO, you will be providing your clients with that outlet you can consider a service to humanity!

Help Someone during this Hard Time

During this pandemic, people have lost their jobs and are going through a tough time. There are plenty of lonely and depressed people who've not had the intimacy they enjoyed pre-COVID. Most of the callers are middle-upper class white males who form a high percentage of people prone to suicide and depression. As a PSO, you will be playing the role of a therapist, helping your clients cope with the stress. Sexual connotations need not dominate the call. We’ve had PSOs use their sweet voices to talk their clients out of suicidal thoughts and instead filled them with positivity. You can use this platform to pull someone out of mental and emotional turmoil. 

Additionally, the service you will be providing has the potential to prevent people from being rapists and pedophiles. Think of it this way; callers can talk about their most twisted fantasies with you, safe with the knowledge that you can’t see their awkward mannerisms. Releasing that sexual tension can help them focus their energies elsewhere, since you will already have fulfilled their sexual fantasies. As a PSO, you also have the power to keep the conversation going for long, even completely changing the topic from sex. 

You get to be your own boss

As a PSO, you will be working as an independent freelancer, so you essentially get to call all the shots. You handle your finances, schedule, rates, promotions, and what have you. This comes with its fair share of challenges, but ultimately, it has its perks. If you are business savvy, there is enormous potential to make good money. With a little patience and persistence, you can make decent enough money so that you no longer need a day job. How do the prospects of not having to deal with your grumpy boss sound?

They no longer have to worry about securing another job. If you ever had a dream of making enough money and chilling in the middle of nowhere, a PSO gig will no doubt be an appealing proposition. 


While many are struggling during COVID-19, phone sex operators are prospering now more than ever. If you have an open mind and find yourself in a position where you want to earn a significant amount of money easily, then becoming a phone sex operator is right for you. 

Please keep in mind that you do not have to pay to become a phone sex operator. However, if you want to charge $120 an hour or more for phone sex, you must be trained, and you must invest in it just as you would any other six-figure business. This is where Total Lip Service can be of great benefit to you. We offer all the training needed to charge top dollar for phone sex, as well as the services required to work on the most elite phone sex sites and/or have your very own phone sex site.
