Blogging the Fringe: Phone sex and the intersection of art and commerce
For the 2011 Victoria Fringe Fest, All Points West and On The Island are featuring blog posts by several Fringe performers.

I've been touring Phone Whore around North America for close to a year and a half--the tally is well over 100 shows by now--and the most common question audience members ask me, after "do you ever get any calls from girls?" (not yet) and "do you ever get turned on while working" (once or twice) is "when did you stop doing phone sex?"
Note the past tense, as if I must have thrown it over a long time ago for the glamorous and high-paying field of solo Fringe performance. Or maybe it's that people imagine Phone Whore to be a confessional, a sort of semi-repentant "look at the crazy stuff I said for money, can you believe it?!" Everybody knows that confessional tales are most effective when the things one is confessing are over and done with.
