    Wow- this is a no-brainer. Anyone who's ever looked at personals on Craigs List knows that there's prostitution going on all over it. You'd think they would be happy to have it all in one place. ;)

    I don't see this as Craigs List's problem.

    Haha! I had to go look with that kind of hook, and lo and behold it sure looks like it. Ads for "ma$$age", or asking for "60 roses". LOL... too funny (and not very subtle).

    Seriously though, who cares? I mean, besides the usual suspects. I just don't understand why it's legal to pay two people to have sex in front of you while you film it for distribution, but it's not legal to pay one (or both) of those people to have sex with you with the camera turned off. It just makes no sense...

    No- it certainly doesn't. It's completely silly. I hope this gets thrown out.

    I'm still waiting for the Video Professor to offer the adult version of "Buying and Selling on eBay/Craiglist"

    Sort of need the know how to properly consume and sell sex in the modern age.

    Especially if the first lesson is still free. ;)
