Up personals sex free dating site
"Craigslist isn't the only one making changes since FOSTA's passage.
On Friday, the adult-ad forum City Vibes disappeared.
Under FOSTA, this won't apply when paid sex is concerned.
That's why sites are scrambling right now to prohibit any content that could get them held liable. Department of Justice has urged against passing FOSTA, calling it unconstitutional and saying that it would make prosecuting sex traffickers harder.
I brokered my best ongoing "casual encounter" through the Craigslist personals.
I know others who met long-term partners and even spouses that way.
Many sex-trafficking survivors and victims groups vocally opposed FOSTA, saying it fails to address the things they really need (like housing and job assistance) and will make saving future victims harder.Online ads have allowed an untold number of victims to be identified and found.What's more, the digital trail of ads, emails, and texts can provide evidence that makes catching and prosecuting the perpetrators easier.Prostitution, mind you, is not sex trafficking, which has a distinct meaning both colloquially and under the law.In the simplest terms, prostitution involves consent and sex trafficking does not.It protects web platforms from being sued in civil court or criminally charged by state prosecutors for third-party (i.e., user-posted) content.(It doesn't apply for federal crimes.) Section 230 says that unless they create the content in whole or part, these platforms shall not be treated as the speaker of such content, and good-faith efforts at content moderation (like banning ads that explicitly mention illegal acts or auto-filtering out content that contains prohibited words) do not change this.For countless folks who came of age in the 00s, finding a partner via the Craigslist personals section was a rite of passage.I remember pouring over the ads with friends, amazed at the sheer variety of sexual and romantic asks and desires out there, the strange and tantalizing mix of anonymity and eros and possibility.And on Thursday, Reddit banned several sex-related subreddits, including r/Escorts, r/Male Escorts, and r/Sugar Daddy.Reddit said the purge was enforcing its new content policy, which bans "transactions for certain goods and services," including "paid services involving physical sexual contact." But frequenters of these subreddits say they were forums for sex-work news, tips, questions, and camaraderie, not places where sex workers advertised their services.
