About Interactive Male

Interactive Male is a gay men’s chat line with 25 years of experience connecting guys and getting them the hot chat they crave. You can make discreet, immediate connections with thousands of great, local gay men or find some intense gay chat with guys across the country. No photos, no questionnaires, just a safe, discrete place for you to live out your wildest desires. Men from all walks of life use Interactive Male. From that hot butcher down the street with the huge forearms, to that intriguing skater with the washboard abs you’ve seen at the park. They all come to Interactive Male because guys can be themselves here, no matter how far they want to go. Don’t worry, you’ll fit right in!

No, all the men on the chatline are real guys, just like you.

  • Call your local number
  • Grab our most popular package - Membership has its privileges!
  • Record your greeting in the Live Connector
  • Browse the hot greetings while the other hot guys on the system hear yours
  • When you hear someone who pushes your buttons send them a message or send them a request to connect one on one, man to man, for some private, uncensored, intense chat.

A Voice Mailbox works like a richer version of email. It’s for guys to leave you messages when you’re not on the line, or if you’re busy in the Live Connector side of the system. You can listen to all the hot mailbox ads in each of the categories, and record your own so other guys can leave messages for you. Be detailed and clear so you get the best results. Pick up your messages when you want, respond to the hot ones and make a date to meet in the Live Connector for some intense man-to-man chat.

The Live Connector is like walking into a bar full of hot men, except you don’t have to deal with the crowds, the high drink prices, or the attitude. In the Live Connector you can browse through all the men by listening to their greetings. Find someone super interesting? Send them a message, or, if you’re really turned on, send them a connection request to get into a private, steamy conversation where you can both explore your wildest fantasies.

In both the Live Connector and the Mailboxes, you can be yourself – who you really are – no matter who you have to be at work or at home.

Free Trials

Yes! To get your free trial:

  1. Dial your local number
  2. Select your language
  3. When asked for a Membership number press the # key.

If your phone number is eligible the system will then offer you a free trial. After that you just need to call from the same phone number to enjoy your free time on Interactive Male, the hottest gay chatline around.

No, you can ONLY use your free trial account from the phone it was issued from. However, new free trial accounts will not be issued to a phone number that has previously been issued one.

Your free trial may not work if:

  • Someone has already used a free trial from this number before.
  • The system cannot read your phone number on call display. You can try pre-dialing *82 to display your phone number to our system.
  • There is no time left in the membership.
  • It has been more than 7 days since your free trial was issued.

You must be calling from the phone number the free trial was originally issued. Or it may be that someone has used a free trial from this phone number before.

You should look up your local access number, and try calling us that way. In the unlikely event that we do not provide local service to your area, call our friendly, 24-hour, toll-free Customer Service at 1-800-661-6168 and they'll help you get connected.

No. The customer service agents have no information about free trials nor can they issue them.

We have great deals for new members that make it easy to get on the line and meeting new guys, including a double-the-minutes package that gives you lots of time for a low price. To hear all of our amazing deals and to buy time, call the local number for your area.

Sending & Receiving Messages

Once you enter the Live Connector, our prompts will guide you through the simple process of recording your name and greeting for the guys to hear. Remember to speak clearly, directly into the phone and avoid loud areas or loud music.

Your greeting is what you record in the Live Connector for the guys who are online to hear right now. Your mailbox ad plays 24/7 for guys to hear and then leave messages for you. The Live Connector is for when you want some hot talk right now, while mailboxes provide a fun back and forth flirt, especially if you’re looking for something really specific.

What would you say to that handsome man that cruises you as you’re walking down the street? Something hot and inviting, or something playful and coy? Your greeting should say what you want to give for a first impression. Keep in mind it should be easy to understand you so avoid loud noises or music when recording it. You’ll have a much hotter experience if the guys can hear and understand what you’re saying!

Speak clearly, give lots of detail about what you’re looking for and above all else, be yourself! Make sure you listen to it afterwards to make sure it recorded properly (you can always re-do it). You may want to write out what you want to record first and practice saying it.

If you hear from a man who just isn’t your type, simply delete the message and move on. If he is persistent and keeps messaging you, you can block the caller from sending you messages by pressing 7, when the system prompts you. If you think the guy is doing something illegal, or is underage, you can also press 7 again, after blocking him, in order to flag him to our customer service department for investigation.

Send them a message back! You can do this back-and-forth as many times as you like until you decide you are ready to take it further. Interactive Male's best feature is that you decide when you're ready to proceed. We keep your personal information private at all times so you can give it out when you’re ready.

We want everyone to have an enjoyable, satisfying experience using our system. We will not tolerate:

  • Any discrimination based on age, gender or race
  • Any references to illegal activity
  • Threats of violence or harm

Having a Mailbox means you are on the system 24/7 for guys to hear your ad and leave you messages in response. It will do the work for you while you’re at work or asleep. They are free to set up and we have 5 categories to choose from, so the question really is “Why wouldn’t you set one up?”


Yes, a paid membership may be used from any phone.

Your membership number gives you access to Interactive Male, and your pass code is like your bank PIN number so it is important to keep these numbers private and not to share them with anyone.. To protect yourself and your mailbox from fraudulent use, call our friendly, 24-hour Customer Service at 1-800-661-6168 if you lose your numbers. For your security, you might be asked to verify your personal information. Remember your membership number is different from your mailbox number.

DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM. No one from Interactive Male will ever contact you while you are on the system. If you get a message from someone claiming to be from Interactive Male make sure you block and flag them but pressing 7, then 7 again, after hearing their message or greeting.

In the Live Connector, time is deducted from your membership once you are listening to other greetings of guys using the Connector. In the mailbox system it is free to listen to ads and time is deducted from your membership when you reply to ads or listen to the responses in your mailbox. Time is deducted from your membership on a per-minute basis and the system will inform you when time is being deducted.

Your Membership will last as long as you want as long as it remains active. To keep your Membership active you need to log in and use time. If your Membership remains unused for a period of 3 months it will be deactivated without refund.

The system will inform you of your membership balance when you log on. You will be given the option to purchase more time when your balance is less than 20 minutes. The system will also warn you when your membership balance reaches two minutes.


You may pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, Pre-Paid Credit Card, PayPal, Check-by-Phone, or Western Union.

Find out more on How to Buy.

When you use a credit or debit card to place your order online or on the phone, we use the discrete billing name of TELIGENCE to keep your purchases private. The phone number that appears goes to our discrete billing department where they do not divulge information unless they are talking to you.

Charges will not appear on your phone bill unless you call using one of our 1-900 numbers. However, if you call one of our local access numbers from outside its local calling area, long distance charges may apply.

(For our 900 customers) Your telephone company handles the billings for the 900 number you have called. Charges will appear in a separate section of your regular phone bill as UCI.

Checks can actually be used over the phone if you are a US customer, and US and Canadian customers can pay by Western Union if you want to use cash to purchase. We don’t take any payments through the mail.

Call the system regularly to find out about our current promotions.

Yes. Since 1990 we have been approved by the top banks in North America to provide secure credit card processing for our members. All credit cards presented are securely directed to the financial institution that issued the card.
