Here are the real faces behind adult phone lines (just a little NSFW)

Phillip Toledano’s book Phonesex is all about unveiling the people behind adult hotlines and delving into their personal lives to hear their stories and perspectives on the industry. But how Toledano came up with the idea for his book is surprising.

It was while caring for his father who suffers from Alzheimer’s that Phillip Toledano came up with the inspiration for Phonesex. Because his father suffers from memory loss, it was up to Phillip to keep the illusion going that his mother was still alive and well. He began telling his father that his wife was only vacationing in Paris (even though she has passed away).

‘My father and I kind of lived in this illusion that I had created and we participated in that lie together’, he told The Huffington Post. ‘One day [my dad] was looking through a magazine and found ads for phone sex and [I] realized it was exactly the same thing as what I was doing with my father. Two people agree to participate in an illusion together’.

In Phillip Toledano’s photo series, he shot phone sex operators in their homes where they work – some with children, some with pets. It’s an eye-opening look that smashes the fantasy of adult hotlines and introduces the real people behind the telephone.

You can read about the operators’ personal lives in Toledano’s book, Phonesex, available here.
