What now? Sex work advertising post-SESTA

Welcome to my first blog post! It's been a while since I flexed my writing muscles, so I'll be starting off with a brief, fact-oriented post. Fun, right? Let's dive in...

As a result of American legislation, known as FOSTA/SESTA, some of the most well-known and commonly used advertising platforms for sex workers have disappeared or modified their posting restrictions. This includes Backpage and Craigslist, which were my original haunts (note: Backpage's seizure was not related to SESTA. Please scroll to the bottom of this post to learn more about Backpage and FOSTA/SESTA.)

Because of this, clients and providers alike have been scrambling to find alternates. Ever the enterprising individuals, myself and many other sex workers swiftly placed our proverbial eggs in many different baskets. Below is a list of websites that I currently use, in no particular order, linked to my own profiles or ads when possible. Please keep in mind that though many of these sites cater to full-service sex work, also known as escorting, I remain solely an erotic massage provider; my offerings behind closed doors have not changed.

While I'm quite the package, I understand most clients visit many sex workers other than myself, both in Toronto and abroad. Below is a brief list of sites you may find helpful to search for adult entertainers of all persuasions around the world:
