Women wanting phone sex
p.m.: Squeezed between parents in back seat with Husband driving to family dinner.
Text from a number I don’t recognize: “Hope new year is good so far!!! Okay, I had broken one of my phone-sex rules: no phone numbers. Then I clear the entire conversation from my phone, just in case anyone sees it.
Today, we came across a scary Twitter thread by a woman whose friend received more than 50 calls in an hour from random strangers asking for phone sex (you can follow the thread here).
Her phone number had been put on to ‘New Friends for Whats App’, an app that essentially provides random strangers with a list of numbers they can call when they’re “feeling lonely”.
” Apparently, it’s for anyone who is tired of always chatting with the same people on Whats App. The features, it says, include browsing many photo options and chatting with many beautiful girls or guys. Considering that the woman was sexually harassed in this case and hadn’t submitted her number to the app, there’s obviously a completely suspicious way the app gets its numbers that isn’t being indicated.
It reminds us a bit of the infuriating recent reports about phone recharge shops in UP selling women’s numbers to men who came and asked for them. One of the people who replied to the above mentioned thread then found that New Friends for Whats App wasn’t the only app like this: There are a whole bunch more, one of which is even blatantly called ‘girls phone numbers’.
"Tuning into men's voices, instead of getting caught up on their looks, was the same as a person suddenly going blind, only to find their other senses enhanced. My job behooved me to reach beyond the little mind games, straight into their pants and grasp them by the balls.In each of these apps, who is allowed to submit numbers and how is it regulated?
