Are phone sex operators essentially like prostitutes?

In the sense that they are paid to accept you for your sexual fantasies, preferences and fetishes?

I've been using a phone/webcam sex service for a few weeks, and I really feel I've connected with this one operator who is aware of my fetishes, and she says I'm cute, gives plenty of advice and chats with me even when I haven't paid for a session. Is she genuinely nice or is she seeing me as nothing more than a customer to entice in purchasing more phone sex sessions?

Also, are the operators genuinely turned on and aroused by the fetishes they discuss during a session or do they sort of grit their teeth with a paycheck in sight?

I feel cynical about the personality of this particular operator, in which see seems unusually nice, friendly and open-minded, and I can't tell if she actually enjoys this or is in this for the money...
Update: Are psychologists and psychiatrists essentially prostitutes by that same argument? In the sense that while they are caring and friendly toward their patients, they simply expect a paycheck from the patient or write a Valium prescription to make money?
