    Backpage's adult section has been shut down by the government.

    Ok not directly shut down by the government as in the government took over the site but backpage shut it down due to repeated abuse of the government trying to illegally use the law as a weapon.

    So expect all the escorts who were using backpage to have to resort to more risky and open methods of finding clients (such as hanging out on the street corners).

    on a serious note, there is no nebulous, nameless ".gov" in this case. Someone is driving this initiative, someone with a name and if past is any indication, s/he is probably some phsycho in power with a small richard or modly twat.

    In the last year, 3 Thai massage parlors have opened in Franklin in a 200 yard diameter of each other. Now correct me if I am wrong but aren't those usually fronts for prostitution? I don't have a problem with prostitution but it seems weird that they opened so close to each other,

    Read about this in the WSJ this AM. As they said: As if some other means won't pop up in about 8 seconds.

    I was listening to some New World Order toolbag being interviewed about currency. He said that if we got rid of currency, it would cut back on illicit trade. That drugs, hitmen and other items wouldn't be as easily obtained. I wasn't ever sure he was just obtuse or truly trying to control the world. He continued to speak and it turned out he was of the latter persuasion.

    The ****ery of this whole thing is it makes life more dangerous to the prostitutes because now they will seek out old school methods, pimps, etc. The internet at least allowed some of these women to become "independent contractors".

    They should give out cards in the local watering holes. There are at least 5 bars in the same area as the parlors.

    When VISA and Mastercard shuttered Backpage's account, they went to Bitcoin

    I suspect it's the same motive as the Utah politicians trying to stop Internet porn -- a personal drive by a few old dudes with weak self-control who don't want to be tempted.

    When VISA and Mastercard shut down payment processing for Backpage, they started to accept Bitcoin, and apparently did pretty well with this payment method. So pimps are already becoming technically astute.

    Sites like Craigslist and Backpage made bank on posting sketchy ads because everybody knew the URL, they weren't usually a source of malware, and because the sites had a good way to collect payment. The barrier to entry for a new player will be the same as always -- name recognition, reputation, and payment processing.

    From the opinions of the experts, it sounds like we should expect LESS prostitution arrests.

    If you follow Arfcom, they have all switched to transgender bolivian donkeys; which they learned from AK shooters.

    The term is "happy ending".
    If you want to see how much of a theocracy UT is, google Zion Curtain.

    2 people want to have sex for a fee, victimless crime, I wish we could focus our attention to the real problems in this country.

    An article I read said the ads have just moved to the dating section of Backpage.

    Unfortunately by making it illegal they have both created a crime, but not just created a crime, but actually created the oppurtunity for a business that exploits the fact it is illegal ensuring there are actually victims. And this happens world wide.

    If not for that prostitution would indeed be victimless.
