When you think about adult content, you usually envision videos or live shows. Rarely do people consider erotic audio — or even just talking dirty to your lover — as erotic content. Meanwhile, “sexting” is now an official word in the English dictionary, and companies that allow models to chat with clients privately (and safely) are sprouting up.
This just proves that the art of sexy communication is desired and, thus, profitable. In fact, phone sex — yes, it still exists — and sexting are incredibly lucrative fields of the adult industry. And really underrated ones, at that.
Here’s a fact: For better or worse, men make up the vast majority of the sex worker client pool. And while it is true that men tend to be more visually aroused, there is something to be said about erotic storytelling. No, I do not mean the written word. I mean verbally speaking.
When telling a story and using “sexy sounds,” one can weave a tale so incredibly titillating that the listener can genuinely envision precisely what is happening in their mind’s eye. But like anything, telling stories in this manner takes practice.
So, how does one become the next master of sensual audio vision? Here are some basic steps to help you find your sensual voice and increase sales while doing so.
Step One: Find Your Tone
The first trick is finding your sexy voice – as in the tenor, tone and feel of your sexy vocal vibe. Everyone has one, and each one is relatively unique.
For some, it is a higher pitched youthful voice. For others, it is low jazz — like a raspy growl. The key is to make sure it is natural. Sadly, if you are like me, when you are trying to do something “naturally” you may over think it, and the result will sound totally wrong.
Pro tip: Watch porn that truly turns you on or teases you a bit. Once you are turned on, just talk as if your lover is there. That is your personal sexy voice! That is the sound your windpipes click into whenever you are feeling super sexy.
Step Two: Practice, practice, practice
Ok, so you have your sexy voice — What’s next? You have to practice using it!
Pick up some erotica and try reading out loud. Try to stay in that hyper-eroticmood you were in to find your voice, and do a search for free erotica online. As you read, really try to get into the story like an actor would. Purse your lips, close your eyes and pause dramatically when you see fit.
Practicing talking this way will help you gain confidence in this new voice. It will become second nature to you and thus allow you to switch it on whenever you need it.
Step Three: Your New Voice, Your New Moneymaker
So now that you have your newly acquired sexy voice with the confidence to use it, how can it be applied to allow you to bank off of it? For phone sex operators, the answer is obvious, but really anyone in the adult industry can truly profit from having their sensual voice perfected.
For webcamming, having a great, welcoming and hyper-sexual voice really sets the mood of your show. Whereas the viewer may have been wishy washy when he entered the room, an excellent sexual voice can send them to instantly wanting a show. Like wise, it can turn someone watching your show from a first timer to a dedicated fan. Your inner vixen vamp vocals will be what brings your client base back more and more.
Don’t think that just because you are moaning that this trick won’t work. We all know that sometimes we are not the most turned on during a cam show, but despite this, if you know your own sexual vocal range, no one will be any the wiser.
Fancy yourself a clip creator? Just like with webcamming, inserting and taking advantage of your golden vocal chords will increase the returning customers you have.
While you will not have a live audience to play off of, pretend that your lover is right there and you are speaking to them. Wait, you’re a fem domme and do not want to talkto the camera as your lover? Don’t worry, your sexual voice STILL works in this scenario — you just change the words you will use.
Your voice is what sets the tone that creates exactly what your viewer/listener will be experiencing. The atmosphere between the ears is what makes/keeps a clip so enticing. Do this once, and your viewer will want more and more and more of your content.
Sit back and watch as they buy your entire library as you sleep!
Vocals for the long haul
This tool – your sexy voice – is a long game strategy. Don’t stress out too much about if your personal sound is not “perfect.” (What is “perfect” anyway?) All good things come with time, after all.
Instead of stressing, practice playing with your voice and finding what works best for you. It is through repetition that we humans discover what works best for us.
Your personal voice will evolve over time, just as you do. The biggest takeaway is to have fun with it. That moment when you know your client is connecting to that sound you are making will genuinely help you refine it — and appreciate how incredibly sensual you are.
