It's a situation we've all been in- some chap talking extremely loudly on his cell phone on the bus or the train. He's usually arguing about groceries or something fairly innocuous. What if he were asking someone whether they preferred him to lubricate his behind with honey or peanut butter? It's something we've all contemplated on the long commute home.
But now it might become a reality. Mobile technologies mean that the old fashioned phone sex offices with rows of operators dealing with customers are no longer necessary. These stations have been shut down and phone sex workers are now free to roam about as they will, getting their job done on the go, with the kind of no-nonsense know-how that makes Britain great. And as we all own a mobile phone, this field of work is now open up to everyone, no longer the exclusive reserve of a small elite. Whether in line at the supermarket or in a crowded elevator, you too can be faking orgasms and forgetting how old you said you were earlier in the conversation to earn a bit of dough on the side.
Some prudish commuters object to the practice, finding it objectionable to have an old lady next to you cup her hand over the receiver and ask you what it is they call a fanny nowadays. But others see the positive side, saying for example that it really helps build vocabulary. "In a single bus ride, I learned over 75 synonyms for moist" said one man from York.
