    Craigslist has yanked its personal ads section in the wake of an anti-online sex trafficking bill that passed in Congress this week. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, or FOSTA, makes websites criminally liable for content that its users post, including prostitution ads and sex-trafficking content. Craigslist — whose personals include bawdy categories such as casual encounters — said it pulled ads because it wasn’t worth running afoul of the new law. “Any tool or service can be misused,” the website said in a statement. “We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other...
  • Man allegedly posed as porn recruiter, tricked women into sex

    SEATTLE (AP/WSVN) — A Seattle man is accused of posing as a porn recruiter and tricking women into having sex with him. Now he can add a consumer protection complaint to the criminal rape charges he is facing. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Wednesday that he sued Michael-Jon Matthew Hickey under the state Consumer Protection Act and the Commercial Electronic Mail Act, seeking restitution and thousands of dollars in penalties. Hickey’s been held on $200,000 bail at the King County Jail on three counts of second-degree rape since his arrest in Las Vegas in October. Authorities say he created...

    The Washington State Attorney General's Office last week filed a most unusual consumer protection lawsuit — charging a Seattle man with running a scheme for nearly a decade where he set up a fake talent agency for adult entertainers in order to trick women into posing nude and having sex with him. Michael-Jon Matthew Hickey is accused of creating a fictitious business and using deceptive ads with bogus employment offers to find his victims. The lawsuit alleges Hickey offered and advertised commercial services solely for his "own personal gain" and to "satisfy his sexual desires" with no intention of following...
  • California Democrats legalize child prostitution

    Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right. SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution. This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California's state government with a two-thirds "supermajority." To their credit, they are sincere in their...
  • Rolling Stone Reveals How 'Sex Workers' Are Opposing Trump

    Rolling Stone has a new article about how "sex workers" are supposedly so outraged about the election of Donald Trump that they are now actively working to oppose him.  Is that for real? The magazine hasn't exactly had a very good track record on sex related stories after that discredited article about a certain rape on campus  has proven. However, even if the article by Mary Emily O'Hara is not true, I have to give her credit for fictitious comedy writing starting with a social worker named Erin who moonlights as an "escort." The extent of Erin's political opposition to Trump builds...

    Amnesty approves policy to decriminalize sex tradeLONDON (AP) — Amnesty International has approved a controversial policy to endorse the de-criminalization of the sex trade, rejecting complaints by women’s rights groups who say it is tantamount to advocating the legalization of pimping and brothel owning. At its decision-making forum in Dublin on Tuesday, the human rights group approved the resolution to recommend “full decriminalization of all aspects of consensual sex work.” It argues its research suggests decriminalization is the best way to defend sex workers’ human rights.
  • Salzburg brothel offers free sex in tax protest

    A licensed brothel in the city of Salzburg has been offering free drinks and free sex in a protest against what its owner says is unfair taxation. The Kronen Zeitung tabloid reports that the news “has spread like wildfire, with punters lining up to get inside”. Salzburg’s “red light district king” Hermann ‘Pascha’ Müller, who owns the well-known Pascha brothel, told the paper that he no longer wants to be “the tax office’s pimp”. German-born Müller told the Kronen Zeitung that he’s already had to “turn away hundreds of disappointed customers” as he has had a full house since the...

    Jeffrey Epstein is back in the news at last. Epstein is a Florida-based hedge-fund manager who, having raked in billions, used his money and his organizational skills to set up an international pedophile network, shipping young girls by private plane to interested parties across the planet. The physically repulsive Epstein (he looks like a Satanic Fred Gwynne) got away with this for years thanks to his money and his social and political connections. Implicated in his crimes is no less than Prince Andrew, the ne’er-do-well hustler scion of the British Royal house. Also involved is another member of the...

  • More than 60 organizations and agencies call for repeal of new prostitution law

    TORONTO – More than 60 organizations and agencies from across the country are calling for the non-enforcement and repeal of new prostitution laws that came into force on Saturday. The groups – which include the Canadian AIDS Society, John Howard Society, and Native Women’s Resource Centre – want the new law repealed and the full decriminalization of sex work in Canada. The sweeping new changes to the way prostitution is regulated in Canada follow a Supreme Court decision last year that found the old laws violated the rights of prostitutes. The groups say the law will recriminalize sex work while...

    For countries that choose to regulate prostitution, it remains a vexing question: What’s the best way to do it? Canada’s answer, as Colby Cosh writes in Maclean’s, is to “put the concept of prostitution back into the Criminal Code.” He adds: “For decades, we had these leftover Victorian laws against ‘living off the avails’ and keeping a ‘bawdy house’ without any actual ban on prostitution itself. There are economic reasons to legalize sex work, too. According to The Wall Street Journal (paywall), the sex trade contributed £5.3 billion (about $9 billion) to the British gross domestic product in 2014.

    Football's world governing body Fifa has cleared Mexico of improper conduct charges after claims their fans used homophobic chants at a World Cup match. The fans shouted the Spanish word "puto" ("male prostitute" in Mexican slang) every time Cameroon's goalkeeper took a goalkick at the game on 13 June. But Fifa now said the incident in question "was not considered insulting in the specific context". A leading anti-discrimination organisation criticised Fifa's move. Fare, which brings together activists also fighting inequality in football, said the ruling by Fifa's disciplinary committee was "disappointing". It added that the governing body needed to take...

The owner of the legal brothel, Dennis Hof, also announced that Sterling is banned from entering any of his six other brothels in the state. "A lot of NBA players come here to party," Hof told the Huffington Post. "Out of respect to them,...

    An Oklahoma nonprofit that works with sex workers is holding a candlelight vigil for a 21-year-old woman whose naked body was found last week on a conveyor belt inside an Anaheim trash-sorting facility. Outreach workers with No Boundaries International, a nonprofit based in Edmond, Okla., said they had frequent contact with Jarrae Nykkole Estepp in Oklahoma City in 2012, when she was featured in several videos of street life posted on YouTube and elsewhere. The nonprofit planned to hold the vigil Monday evening. Estepp's body was found Friday morning amid the trash at the Republic Services recycling plant in an...

    SANTA BARBARA – A department of feminist studies professor has been accused of going berserk after coming across a campus prolife demonstration that used extremely graphic displays, leading a small mob of students to chant “tear down the sign” before grabbing one of the signs, storming off with it, then allegedly engaging in an altercation with a 16-year-old prolife protestor who had followed the educator to retrieve it. Much of the scuffle was recorded on a smartphone by the 16-year-old, Thrin Short. The yet-to-be-released video is now in the custody of Santa Barbara law enforcement officials, who are investigating the...

    How Facebook Exploits Underage Girls in its Quest for Ad Revenue Sophie Bean, 14, of Sequim, Wash., said she was thought she was “liking” a Facebook ad related to fashion modeling. Instead, it promoted a Facebook page that recruited adult webcam models. “I just thought it was for modeling, and I’m interested in that, and I thought it would help me out,” Sophie said. Sophie wasn’t the only teen connecting with the page, which Facebook statistics show is most popular with users 13 to 17. Clicking on it didn’t pull the teens into nude webcam modeling, but did mean they...
