Phone sex is a growing as a cultural phenomenon and the increase in ads for phone sex in The Independent Weekly has some readers and staff concerned. The periodical has continued to run the ads due to the money from the advertisements which go towards reporting and writing the paper, an increased use of 900 calls in the Raleigh-Durham area, and their anti-censorship stance.
