    Well backpagers in the US will be saddened by the news that sex ads have been shuttered in this country. That's the new.

    They can axe the whole section but the oldest profession in the world is the oldest for a reason like they say in Jurassic Park Life Always Finds A Way :rolleyes: you just have to start google-ing in the dating sections words like "generous" or "companion" and they'll prolly be there now.

    The same guys are simply advertising under "dating" now.

    BP has never been much of a source for me. I can't actually recall ever finding someone there. CL has been more useful. I still think so even now years after the escorts section was removed.

    Pretty much EVERYONE has simply moved to the "dating" section on Backpages, including the (in)famous DYLAN at Babylon Spa.

    The one poz thang about that BP section (at least here in NYC), was that hidden among the deluge of guys you wouldn't want walking behind you on a dark night lol, was the occasional hidden gem. Struggling actors or starving frats in need of some quick funds who were non-pros who NEVER considered scorting before to whom a RB or RM Ad was way too real of a commitment and a short-lived BP Ad was something these str8 bois were more comfy with.

    My question is can U S escorts put an escort ad on, say BP London, and one under dating on BP New York simply directing readers to the London ad? Or is that just too convoluted? I mean, really, the alt right can't control the whole planet.

    Altnright, reqlly? Is trying to stop human trafficking really an "alt right" initiative? I know it's popular to throw that term around based on personal political convictions. But check the other thread re:Backpage in the lounge for a more serious discussion.

    Good point. I apologise for being glib. Thank you for the correction. What is and isn't human trafficking is complex. Sorry.

    "ALT - RIGHT" is a movement that is an ALTernative to the extreme right of the Republican Party. It's ALT-right, not ULTRA-right.
     
  13. The ones who didn't get mugged and yet kept wondering about a diamond in the rough in the pages of BP...
     
  14. I think the "Alt right" would love to bring slavery back!

    Well, sorry again, truly. I obviously know little about this which makes sense as I have been avoiding politics lately. And it looks like I should jump back in or hold my peace. Thank you for the definition. I've been politically active and tried to stay up to date for about sixty years, and admit I'm pretty exhausted by the barrage of conflicting opinion and "facts" confronting us today. Time to retire.
