Philadelphia Police Officer Moonlights as Phone Sex Worker

Imagine your on the phone pouring out your deepest sex fantasies to a police officer and you’re not getting busted.

That can only happen if the officer is also a phone sex worker. That’s the story of  Philadelphia Police Officer Terra Barrow who  had a side job running a handful of websites and phone lines appealing to lusty callers with fetishes both tame and taboo.

How does she do it? Barrow told the Philadelphia Daily News that she stopped running the sites – which featured fetishes that would be illegal if acted upon in real life, like pedophilia, rape, incest, kidnapping and snuff – about two years ago, because she worried that they would endanger her police job.Turns out she had no reason to worry.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said Internal Affairs in 2011 sustained an allegation that Barrow was working in the phone-sex industry on the side, but the department’s Police Board of Inquiry chose not to punish her because of a policy loophole.

“They found her not guilty on a technicality,” Ramsey said, “because [phone-sex work] was not specifically enumerated as prohibited outside employment.”

Now Ramsey says he wants Directive 121, the department’s policy on outside employment, to be amended to bar officers from phone-sex work.

“It may not be illegal, but it doesn’t look good at all for the department,” he said. “There are certain types of jobs that are just inappropriate for a police officer.”

Barrow said she got into the phone-sex industry as “a matter of convenience.”

“It was an opportunity to be home and not have to go out and make [extra] money,” she said.

She left the business after a competitor reported her phone-sex work to Internal Affairs, saying she didn’t want to imperil her police job. Barrow joined the force in April 1999 and makes $65,567 annually, according to city records.

But she still doesn’t see what’s so wrong with being a phone-sex operator.

“It’s a 100 percent legal business,” said Barrow, 35. “It didn’t impede me from doing my duties. I never portrayed an officer. My real name was never revealed when I conducted my [phone-sex] business.”

So remember the next time you’re on the phone, not that you would ever be, but just in case,  you never know who you may be talking to.
