    Damn... considering most of the reviews come from there, its a pretty big blow.

    Seriously this start to ressemble more and more like the "Sexpocalypse" (yes yes i know, im copying youtube addpocalypse term)

    C-36 was pretty much a dumpster fire, but it seem this whole fosta thing is "no fucking around" litteraly and figuratively for the Americans. With backpage going dark and TER blocking every american related... ouch.
    Here's to the people we've met, and the people we've fucked And to those of us who have had no such luck Here's to beer in the glass and vodka in the cup Here's to poking her in the ass so she won't get knocked up Here's to all of you and here's to me... Together as friends we should always be... But if we should ever disagree... Then fuck all of you and here's to me! - Tucker Max

    Until the matter gets resolved (and hopefully it will eventually), I would suggest our American friends on the board to access TER with a good VPN using another country (but not to connect to Merb, as this is not allowed).

    Regards,
    Matt.

    Thanks Matt,

    This article is worth reading just to look at the author's picture at the bottom.

    Jalimon, this doesn't have anything to do with politics. Neither political party supports sex work or sex workers.

    I am reading a lot of chatter that the higher end providers might move to this site.

    tnaboard.com

    It is hosted offshore, has expressed a willingness to fight FOSTA, and is something of a clean slate.

    Usasexguide and ECCIE are still up for now, but have always catered to a more downmarket group.

    It will be interesting to see if U.S. providers and johns start invading non-US boards, and to see if social media becomes the new advertising venue.

    I am not sure if that will work though. There is already an attempted exodus from Twitter to Switter due to Twitter's nastiness to sex workers.

    Thanks for the VPN information.

    I just checked TER this morning to find that Iíve beeen blocked. This crap is scary and the idea that the Republicans look the other way while Trump gets to screw pornstars but normal joes like us are blocked from even looking at reviews or adds is hypocrisy itself.

    Yes, it appears that ECCIE is dead.

    A message now appears on usasexguide that a major change may be coming and may be announced on a Facebook page if the usasexguide goes dark.

    http://www.usasexguide.info/forum/

    It is a bit like Stephen King's book The Stand. Some people will mix with others they did not previously associate with before. I am not sure how well the downmarket usasexguide guys and the $500 an hour TER guys will do together. Of course, new offshore sites and foreign VPNs might solve the problems.

    If itís separate forums on a message board, they will mix fine. You just create an LDL and HDH forum and each of those groups stay on their own turf. Thatís how it worked on many boards in the past.

    The FOSTA/SESTA bills were overwhelmingly supported by both Republicans and Democrats. Also, it was not President Trump who initiated the current legislation. But he will probably be forced to sign it for political reasons.

    Only one political party truly stands for liberty in America-the Libertarian Party, which, in contrast to the Democrats and Republicans, has taken strong stand against the legislation:

    Anti-trafficking bill also endangers safety of sex workers
    www,lp.org

    by Staff on February 28, 2018

    “...Without question, Internet platform providers should not be criminalized for speech indulged in by their users, whether or not they are aware of the content of that speech,” said Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark. “Gutting Section 230 is not a solution to stopping human trafficking. Internet giants like Facebook and Google may have the resources to fight the onslaught of lawsuits that would likely ensue. Small startups do not.”

    It’s important to distinguish between the victims of sex trafficking, who are forced into captivity by violent abductions and imprisonment, and the people who choose to engage in sex work for any number of voluntary reasons.

    “The common understanding of sex trafficking involves the kidnapping of victims and forcing them to work as sex slaves,” Sarwark said. “Kidnapping and slavery are already illegal, and perpetrators should be vigorously prosecuted. Anyone kidnapped or enslaved is a victim. For people voluntarily engaged in prostitution, though, neither the sex worker nor the customer is a victim. Both are acting voluntarily. Prostitution is legal in some jurisdictions in Nevada, and it should be legal everywhere.”

    The real danger for sex workers comes not from their line of work but from the legal system that keeps them hidden and makes it difficult for them to benefit from institutions that protect the rest of us from violence and abuse.

    “Whenever government tries to make consensual activities a crime, not only do the activities continue unabated but their illegality creates collateral damage by driving the activities to the black market,” Sarwark said. “Prohibition had little effect on the consumption of alcohol, but it increased the profit margin in booze and created a great new business opportunity for organized crime. Richard Nixon’s war on drugs did not measurably decrease the use of drugs, but it made billions for murderous drug cartels. Likewise, victims of sex trafficking will see little benefit from FOSTA. Sex workers who enter the trade voluntarily, on the other hand, will be pushed into a much more dangerous working environment.”

    Libertarians believe that society suffers not from too few laws but from too many. One of the top priorities of Libertarians elected to office will be the repeal of old, antiquated, counterproductive laws like those prohibiting consensual adult activity. More than 2,000 Libertarians are running for local, state, and federal office in 2018 to help make the United States more free and prosperous.
    Renault: I have often wondered why you don't return to America. Did you abscond with the church funds?
    Did you run off with a senator's wife? I like to think you killed a man. It's the romantic in me.
    Rick: It was a combination of all three.
    Renault: And what in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
    Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
    Renault: Waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
    Rick: I was misinformed.

    Trump has to give something back to the Evangelicals for their undying support of him. They see him as their vehicle or tool in order to get him to accomplish their agenda. Why else would they support this three-time married/pornstar fucking sex maniac if they couldn't get anything out of it?

    Evangelicals are no fools and have a very strong lobby in DC. And it's working. Next you'll be seeing abortions being banned. Just watch.

    On another note whatever happened to the First Amendment?

    Guys, it just isn't a political issue. It used to be when the liberal Democrats in the 1970s explored legalization and decriminalization, but they went the other way on this. Now Democrats Kirsten Gillerand, Kamala Harris, and Heidi Heitkamp are the ones leading the charge for these new laws, and the votes are 97-2. It just isn't a political issue.

    Ralph Nader said it best. It is the DemRubs party. They are voting the same way in this.

    I don't trust the Libertarians on this issue either. They don't believe in much taxation, and when the police need to fund their departments through non-tax revenue, they do so through asset seizures and forfeitures. And sex workers (and johns on their way to appointments) are a major target.

    Hopefully the courts provide relief, but I doubt it. If not, a hooker and a John uses technology to minimize risk, and eliminates activities outside of closed doors that could create legal problems. The industry created some of these problems in the U.S. by shoving it in people's faces.

    Just like Ms. Bedford did in Canada by not accepting reasonable zoning restrictions, which brought us the wonderful c-36. Hookers and johns are in the minority, and in politics the majority wins.

    Wonder if sites like seeking arrangement will be affected?

    I agree with the Patron analysis. The LE history on this is they go after cash businesses. All of the escort agencies busted in the past in my area were on grounds of income tax evasion, not on the bases of trafficking or promoting prostitution. In the USA and particularly in my State, there is not as much tax revenue as needed to make budgets, so LE compensates with forfeiture monies. Virtually all of these cases got resolved with enormous amounts of restitution to State LE and taxing authorities.

    I remember for many years, a full service, high volume massage parlor that operated in a city in CT with impunity because the owner was smart enough to donate money to police charities. And advertise that fact. It's legalized bribery, but it is what it is. LE left him alone and shut down other MPs in that city to meet Mayor's agenda.

    Money is what is driving all of this. On the federal level, money is needed for making budgets. Everyone forgets that until Trump fired Comey, the FBI operated almost completely independently and with their own autonomous agenda. The FBI is the most autonomous law enforcement agency in the world, at least since the SS under Hitler. Which of course led to Hitler ordering the execution of Rohm. But even post-Comey I believe that the pre-Comey agendas remain in place.
