It's the type of work where your income can increase as you get more experience - many new starters get fed up and quit within a few weeks, hence the ongoing vacancies for adult chat operators.
This involves taking calls from customers who ring up for a chat to the operator's premium rate numbers, they are routed through to your home telephone.
The chat line company charges customers for calling a premium rate 'hotline' number and pays the chat line operator an hourly rate for the time spent chatting.
You'll usually need to commit to being online for a given number of hours per week.
If you don't hit your targets, your payment may be delayed, reduced or cancelled.
On the plus side, if you can tune out or approach the sex chat jobs with an open mind they can be entertaining and reasonably well paying.
There are no commuting costs or extra expenses to find, and you can work from home and do the hours that best suit your lifestyle.
There are higher paying options of adult chat line jobs doing much the same kind of thing, but in online in front of a webcam..get the picture.
Potential male chat line operators should be aware that there are virtually no vacancies for straight men to work on chat lines talking to women.
Don't attempt to set up a chat service on your own unless you know exactly what you are doing and you are 100% sure you can comply with all the legal and regulatory requirements for setting up a sex chat service.
Answer one of the 'chat operators wanted' adverts and see how you get on first!
This makes it easier to get into character and keeps things consistent for repeat callers (You can give repeat callers a 'hotline' code they can use to get through to you again).
