Hot Phone Sex And The Morphology Of Storytelling

Hot Phone Sex And The Morphology Of Storytelling

I ran across this Wired News post about how computer-aided phone sex has the potential to revolutionize the industry.

23-year-old Friday Goldman (think it's her real name?) has created the Phonesexatron, a computerized guide to generating phone sex fantasies that allowed her company to boost per-call revenues 43% in less than 6 months.

"The basic formula involves picking an item from each of three columns - Setting, Sex Act, Character - and putting them together into an arousing narrative. As the guide puts it: "car wash + hot blow job + muscle-bound hunk = hot car wash blow job story!""

It sounds like Ms. Goldman has found a striking (and profitable) application of the classic "Morphology of the Folktale," which showed that Russian folktales all had a very similar underlying structure.

It would be interesting to see what other types of literature could be generated based on a collection of common tropes...Morphology of the Tom Cruise Movie, perhaps?
