I caught up with Hugo to find out what it’s like to be a 21-year-old boy pretending to be a filthy girl. Hugo: I was supposed to study at a restaurant school in Denmark, but I went to Berlin in the summer before my studies and decided to ditch the school and everything else and move to Berlin. At some point I found an ad looking for a chat administrator.
I was obviously totally broke, so I needed to find a job—anything—so I did. It said you could work from home and that all you needed was a computer.
Did you never think of exposing what it was you were doing? I wasn’t allowed to tell customers anything about that. If you’ve been watching a little bit of porn, I’d say you know how it works. Everybody should try sex-chatting at some point in their lives!
I thought it was pretty interesting and the money was quite good. My interviewer was a girl—she was the recruiter for the company.
It was commission-based, which sounded a bit weird, but I applied. I found out exactly what the job was at the beginning of the interview. It was a pay-for sex-chat where I was sending out mass-messages regarding girls looking for boys.
I had to ask open questions, mention personal things, and find out about things that the customers liked—anything to make them want to get in touch again. It was about finding out their interests and goals. They were just happy about the fact that someone wanted to hear what they had to say at all.It was mostly about showing some interest in their life.
