Sex lines increasing in popularity

Phone dating is becoming more popular in Ireland with both men and women now using the service.

Richard Brennan of voicemingle.com said that business is increasing and more women are using the service.

He told the Irish Sun, “We started the business sixteen years ago and today it has thousands of regular users.” He went on, “Phone dating is more popular than people think. We have over 300,000 people who have used the service in recent years. It is far more mainstream than you would expect.”

Brennan stresses that the service is directed to helping people meet “the one” and not a common telephone ploy. He said, “People are searching for ‘The One.’ The service is similar to internet dating but unless you agreed to meet them, you might never see them. It’s like a nightclub or a bar. The people in it are real, there are no employees or fake people in the party.”

It is easy to understand why some would be hesitant to use a phone line. In January of this year the Herald reported on a scam that targeted mobile phone users and tricked them into calling a foreign sex line with charges of up to 150 euros.

Brennan said the service is popular with women because it is anonymous and secure. He explained, “The service is totally secure. Most people use aliases, phone numbers are not passed in the service and it is a policed environment. Women come for different reasons, some to meet a future partner, some for casual dating and others for no strings attached fun.”
