Transcript shyness about him. He said, I'm goin' tew throw yew ahn he floor an' raype yew." He rarted calling one right after mother, each time asking for /ounger and younger girls, vierder and wierder acts. I re- eived his call again and this ime he asked me where I was. I old him that I was at home vith my parents, hoping to cre- tte a common bond. He asked me oh so slyly what would happen if I walked naked in front of my father. I told him my dad would tell me to get my ass back into my room and put >ome clothes on. Dissatisfied with my less than titillating answer, he hung up on me. He continued calling all night, growing more and more abusive with each call. All of us were completely tired of dealing with him, but we took pleasure in knowing that, at $20.00 per call, he was going to get his ass kicked when his parents got the phone bill. By far the most mentally screwed up person I "met" through phone-sex was a middle-aged man named Chuck. At first, he seemed like any other customer, except for a minor fetish about making love underwater. He began calling often and asking me to have orgasms underwater so that he could hear. Naturally, I couldn't oblige him because of my surroundings, and he called so much that I eventually told him that I was actually in a room with other women. However, he seemed to take particular delight in believing that I was masturbating along with him, so I told him that we had private booths. Eventually, he was calling me up to ten times a day. Many times we did not even talk about sex, but at least once a day, he masturbated. Chuck constantly talked about meeting me, but I told him it was a strict rule that we never meet customers, which was true. Soon it became apparent that he was in love with me. I was careful never to mention anything of the sort to him, though he often asked me if I loved him. To hold him off, I told him that if I ever quit phone-sex, we would meet. He seemed like a nice enough guy, but normal people don't fall in love with a phone whore. He became quite possessive about the things I might have said to other customers and was possessive about me in general. It was becoming pretty scarey for me because it was beginning to look as if his whole life was revolving around the day we were to meet. He promised me jobs, gifts, trips, everything, if I would just quit and meet him. Then I got a "respectable" job, and quit phone-sex. Naturally, I didn't say anything to Chuck despite my many promises that I would. A week later, I went back to pick up my final paycheck. Waiting for me at the office were hundreds of notes to me from Chuck, that girls on other shifts had taken. The women that were still working there told me that Chuck had offered them $500.00 for my real name. He had also told them that he was going to commit suicide if I didn't get in touch with him. I asked Kitty if she thought I should call him. She said yes. When I got home I called Chuck. He sounded maniacally happy and hurt when he heard my voice. He immediately asked me where I lived so that he could come and pick me up. I simply explained to him that I was just doing my job and that I really had no intentions of ever meeting him. He said, bewilderedly, "But you love me and I love you." I spent the next half hour repeating to him again and again that I didn't love him, but he kept saying to me, "Oh yes you do, you might not think so, but I know you'll come around." He started crying and I told him that I was going to hang up now and I was fond of him, and he was a nice man, but The advertisement on the left is used solely for illustrative purposes and is not directly related to the company mentioned in the article. it (whatever 'it' was) was over. He told me that he was going to hire a private detective and find me and that if he didn't he was going to kill himself. I hung up on him. The preceeding article is written by a University of Houston student concerning her experiences while working at a 976 pay telephone number. From prayers to horoscopes to fantasies, the 976 phone services ha ve gained massive popularity over the past year. Advertisements for the 976 phone services have come out of the closet, so to speak. Their dramatic escalation into the public market has been through radio and TV, as well as persons soliciting (in the traditional style of encyclopedia and vacuum cleaner salesmen) in the home and workplace. And their cost has been a burden to many, whether it be children using the household phone to call the Rubik's Cube hotline or City Hall having to update its telephone system to prevent employees from using the 976 numbers. 265
