Craigslist Swaps Out “Erotic Services” for “Adult Services”

It’s all in the name!

Philip MarkoffWhen Philip Markoff murdered Julissa Brisman, nobody called him the “Murderous Med Student.” Instead, he was dubbed “The Craigslist Killer,” because he contacted his victim through the popular online bulletin board.

After weathering an avalanche of bad press, this week, Craigslist’s Jim Buckmaster announced that the company is replacing their previously unmonitored “erotic services” section with something they’re calling “adult services.” Though the ads will mostly remain the same, unlike in the past, they will be monitored; with any ad deemed too blatant a quid pro quo arrangement deleted. The price of placing each add will double from $5 to $10, but reposting will be offered at half price.

Why sex workers are too often the victim

Whether or not this wipes out prostitution on the board remains to be seen (and seems highly unlikely), but Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said, “You’re not going to have the volume of it, you’re not going to have the ease of it.” My guess is that sex workers will simply come up with a new coded vocabulary to offer their services-like the way horny drug users say they’re looking for a “ski partner” in the personals. Snort.

How a company with only 28 employees is going to monitor the thousands of ads that come in each day is a mystery. But hey, maybe Craigslist will start hiring ad monitors -good news in this economy.

  1. How is this going to do anything?? Sounds like the same ads will be placed under a different name — only now Craigslist will make more money off them!

  2. So you know how the story goes.. I heard about this stuff from one of the moms on my sons soccer team and since I don’t know her that well I figured I’d ask for some reviews. The pictures of what comes out of your colon are almost too wild to be true .. [url=][/url] .. Hopefully I don’t have strings of miniature hot dogs coming out of my colon.. I don’t feel that clogged… Has anyone personally tried this product?

    I’m kind of skeptical about new products because I’ve tried stuff that doesn’t work soo many times. In the last few months I’ve lost a ton of weight and I’m feeling really energetic lately. While I was losing the weight I was using power cleanse along with acai nutriburst and had amazing results. I’m just thinking that DrNatura might help me flush out anything that power cleanse left behind.. (If there is anything..) You can read my blog post on when I was on the acai berry and power cleanse diet – [url=][/url]

    Also another thing to consider is I’m a lot more active than I was before I lost the weight.. I don’t want to have any problems with diarrhea or farting in public.

    Thanks in Advance! 😉
