Or a client run site? But any ads you make you will have control over. Joyfinder - Pricing info unknown. Has free posting options Listed front page on google searches. Backpage is a huge resource for so many sex workers around the world, and even though there are many other platforms, since advertising is expensive, many workers only used one site - the most popular one.
I will make a new post dealing with this in a while, but for now, here's an interesting article on how this may affect all of us. Here's an article on what it is and how it affects Australian sex workers by Gala Vanting follow her on Twitter.
Look up "escorts [your city]". It's the first place clients go to look for escorts. Their ads are just gone, and many haven't saved the text they put on there. I use it, and plenty of my friends who would fall into the "high class" niche use it - it is not class specific. Lucky you for being privileged enough to never use it though, if that's you! But lots of people have lost what is effectively their only source of income overnight.
Do what you can to help! Back up any websites you create, don't buy too far in advance, keep checking them to make sure they're still available. I have removed several directories from this list for being dodgy. Punter Planet it getting no more free traffic from me, especially since their owner decided to make it so that sex workers must pay to see their own reviews, unless they message him to beg for it.
This is a change that's coming in soon. Not sorry to hear you must be bleeding money, Andy. Do not contact me to ask that your site be added to the list, or get some marketing peon to do it. This is a personal blog, and sex workers are literally dying because of what has happened - this is not a game, and you're not making quick bucks off us.
You vultures in the comments disgust me. L is now in her 50s. She rents an office in a nice building with a receptionist, and, for a dozen years, hand jobs have paid all her bills. Unlike a lot of women in the business, L actually knows therapeutic massage, and so this, with an orgasm at the end, became her niche.
Everyone calls it different things, but that's what works for me. After her initial forays on Craigslist, L moved to advertising on Backpage, where the clients tended to be less flaky. She kept their numbers, and ignored their calls. But for everyone else, she told them to look her up on Backpage—she was easy to find—and give her a call. This worked for her.
She was her own boss, with flexible hours, time for herself, and with a few exceptions, she always felt safe. She also felt like she was performing a valuable service for her clients, who, for whatever reason, needed her. I just waited until he was done and ready to say what was going on. He'd been working himself to death and denying his physical needs to avoid the pain of his wife's passing.
I helped him get past what he was afraid to face by himself. Not all of L's clients are grieving widowers, but, despite stereotypes of men who pay for sex as brutal, aggressive, women-haters, they aren't all bad guys, either. The law, however, as well as cultural stigma, prevents sex-buyers from coming out. L would like to continue this work, but last week, Backpage, her one source of clients, disappeared.
When L went to Backpage last Friday, she was greeted by an unfamiliar image. Where classifieds used to be, there was a notice saying that Backpage had been seized by the FBI. Earlier that day, she would soon find out, the Feds had raided the homes of Backpage co-founders Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. According to documents unsealed on Monday, the two, along with five other Backpage employees, have been indicted on 93 charges, including conspiracy to commit money laundering and facilitate prostitution.
Backpage says that the company blocks ads that involve minors and reports them to law enforcement, but the site has long been accused of enabling both prostitution and human trafficking.
Human trafficking, however, exists in far more industries than just sex: The International Labour Organization estimated that, as of , there were 4.
Sex is just a part of the human trafficking problem, but it's the only part we hear about. There is good reason for this: There has been a sustained effort on the part of anti-sex work campaigners to conflate human trafficking with sex work, despite the fact that not all sex workers are victims, and many sex workers are just like L, who chose to work in this trade. In fact, some sex workers say the ability to post their own ads on sites like Backpage actually helped them get out of trafficking.
I didn't have to justify it to anyone. For the very first time, the oldest profession has transparency, record keeping, and safeguards. Backpage did make their jobs safer. Online classified services give sex workers an opportunity to vet their clients first—and they allowed sex workers to trade information with each other about who to trust and who to avoid.guide to the Vancouver sex scene: Prostitution, escorts, erotic massage and getting their services on the classified sites, such as Craigslist and Backpage. 10 Apr She'd been out of massage school for a few years and was making about $20 an At the time, sex workers on Craigslist simply moved from "erotic “Everyone moved there,” L says, “escorts, dominatrixes, the whole rainbow.
