Sex chatlines for pahrump area
Craigslist allows people to post classified ads for everything from cars for sale to help wanted to “adult services.” And just as the site has revolutionized the way people sell their trinkets and bookends, it has changed the way men and women sell sex, according to Kennedy.
“There are just very, very few resources that are dedicated to those types of operations,” she said.
Kennedy described the issue as “overwhelming,” saying, “It’s an insurmountable problem.” Most resources available to combat sex crimes on the Web are devoted to child prostitution.
“It’s scary because we think of craigslist as being so innocuous, but it’s really the tip of the iceberg,” Kennedy said.
The media relations arm of craigslist did not respond to multiple requests seeking comment for this story.
• More than 80 percent of the ads included phone numbers, most with a 702 area code.
