* This is how the late Dr. Albert Ellis, who was a psychologist, sexologist and sex and love researcher described the guys who make obscene phone calls:
-->"They are crazy and compulsive. I think they are essentially harmless and are the sort of [[SituationalSociability people who lack the guts to do more than make a telephone call]] and hide behind the anonymity of the telephone. The act is a toned-down form of sexuality.

* In ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'', one of the many sick pleasures of VillainProtagonist Patrick Bateman is to call random women and threaten them while making grunting and sucking noises. He enjoys this immensely, but mentions his enthusiasm for it coming to an abrupt halt when one of the women he calls calmly asks, [[CrossesTheLineTwice "Dad, is that you?"]]


Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'', Dennis explains to the rest of The Gang his system for manipulating and tormenting women. One example is to nurture dependence on you, which he achieves by disguising his voice and making threatening phone calls to her, then "taking care of" the guy harassing her. A later step in the plan has him completely severe all contact with her and not explaining why, during which time he starts making those calls again.
