Girls "in your area". 30 minute call will cost you $150.

What blows my mind is that there's still shit in this basic category on tv.
1-900-GOTOBED should be a help line for the parents of toddlers.
I love the sound of women's voices and I was never even vaguely tempted to call one of these.
When I was in middle school, I used to call 1-800 numbers like these from payphones. Of course it was a pre-recorded sales pitch for the actual 1-900 number, but I used to think they were hilarious.
Yeah, me and my friends would sit around when we were bored and just dial 1-800-(insert naughty words) just to see which ones would actually work and what you'd hear. A lot of them were pretty amusing. We all thought 1-800-FAT-CHICKS was pretty funny.
I remember 1-800-BIG-TITS was especially funny. There was a phone booth right down the street from our house (this was in the mid 90's), and my brothers and I would go there and dial whatever combinations we could think of, then absolutely fall apart laughing at the prerecorded sales pitch.
"Only" $3.00 a minute (in 90s money) to listen to an invisible stranger talk to you about doing naughty things that you can't actually do, or even see.
How could you not feel like a grade-A jackass when you got that credit card statement at the end of the month?
"$1 per minute, $5 for the first minute"
They just needed you on the line for a split second so they could charge you that $5, I suspect virtually nobody ever made it into the $1 minutes.
Actually no that's stupid, I bet tons of guys did because as a species, people will jerk it to ANYTHING.
Back in the day the local cable station fucked up one time and broadcast a bunch of commercials for local bakeries and things with the audio from these instead.
The best was the time that they accidentally broadcast a 2 hour PBS documentary about mid 20th century military technology with the audio replaced by an audio book of some Michael Crichton novel about time travel. Lots of mid 90s CGI reconstructions of howitzers and stuff.
Now imagine them all speaking in Rusty Venture's voice.

All those women are old and crusty now.
Preview image would make a good postmodern, Tumblr-wave album cover.

You're the guy I couldn't imagine anyone being.
It is a pleasure and a privilege to know you.
