I was just saying this to a friend. They could clearly see which way the wind was blowing and any prudent business owner could have seen clear courses of action to avoid this. Instead they decided to rinse the US to the last drop, and now they've lost their income from the UK, Aus, and anywhere else they're a player. Fucking idiots.

Amen.

This is pretty terrifying on the other hand:

"Feds charge Backpage founder after human-trafficking investigation"

/www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/04/07/backpage-prostitution-charges/495701002/

However, Trump is due to sign FOSTA/SESTA today and if he does this 70 year old man can go to jail for a long time. MICHAEL LACEY BP FOUNDER WHAT WHERE YOU THINKING DUDE!!! why didn't you shut down the erotic services in the US much sooner!!  ???

It hasn?t been working since last night. Me and my friend tried posting around 3pm yesterday and that?s when it starting acting up so we knew something was up. It wasn?t until yesterday evening that they fully shut down the site. It?s all over social media.

Does anyone know any alternatives? AW I?ve got already but the bookings don?t come as consistent as backpage does. It?s so awful, and it?s bitter sweet.

This weekend I'll work on my website and do some marketing research.
Will update in the 'Where to Advertise' once I get some results.

I'll stay posted :-)

My 2 cents:

a) They're not directories where other services are being advertised (like real state or looking for a nannie ads), so there;s no "civvie traffic" going to the escort ads.
b) They are sex industry directories exclusively designed for punters, so unless you're one hardly no civvie person knows it (meaning: they get less attention so they're not good when it comes to politicians using the shut down for their own political agenda).
c) They are well monitored and censored with less graphic images). You need to send ID, passport, etc..
d) They don't have 20 lawsuits from parents of trafficked teenagers.
e) They keep themselves low key with servers and headquarters in other countries and don't play "who has the biggest dick" game with the US government .
f) They're not all over the press.

Or all of the websites and directories will run from countries where they won't be closed down...

I`ve found a interesting article explaining what happened with backpage (I didn`t knew some of the details) and this one is clearly pro safe sex work : http://www. dazeddigital.com/life-culture/article/39608/1/why-sex-workers-are-fighting-for-internet-freedom-and-their-lives

I'm hearing rumours in the punting forums/sex industry related bedpage might the the alternative??? it's very slow at the moment and takes some time to load. anyone heard anything? It's worldwide and veeeery similar to backpage and was created very very recently as in March 2018....hmmm....

s://www.bedpage.com/login

https://www.bedpage.com

Copy+paste
"Looking for the alternative to Backpage? Bedpage.com is an alternative site to Backpage; one of the platform for classified advertising. Here you will get services like real estate listing, job listing, vehicle, electronic items and other products".

(Is this a joke?)

No, backpage. I see in the New York Times that backpage and associated sites, cracker presumably, have been seized by Federal authorities. R.I.P. Backpage.

Will keep an eye on bedpage.
