    Default Since BP Went Down: Are Stings and Busts a Thing of the Past?

    I've heard talks of cops targeting girls through social media sites like Tinder and SA but I cant find any actual news articles on this occurring.

    In fact, ever since BP went down, while searching "prostitution/ escort busts" during my tours, nothing comes up except cases from when BP was up. Even election season was quiet.

    Makes sense that cops are probably not bothering with trying to arrest 1 or 2 girls at a time (a waste on city dollars) and they know getting through the Eros girls is like pulling teeth (due to verification requirements)

    Anyway, does anyone have any actual links to post- BP escort busts?

    I'm sure it happens, but for the most part you're right. The beauty of BP was that cops could easily arrest girls. They send a message and have a prostitution arrest in an hour. To arrest a girl using a site like SA or Tinder, he's going to have to keep a conversation going pretending to be legit (probably for at least a day or two, if not longer), meet her verification requirements, provide enough information for the girl to feel comfortable meeting him, meet her in said place. It's not a productive thing to do. Most cops want to seal the deal as soon as possible and get multiple arrests before his shift is over.

    Makes sense but its also funny considering the narrative since BP’s downfall and Sesta passing has been that sex workers have to mow be extra vigilant when really, it seems like we dont have to as much as before. I wonder where all the “social media stings” rumor came from anyway. Not saying it hasnt happened but no way can it be a common occurrence.

    LE is everywhere from social media to SA and even dating/hookup sites. Trust me. They're just looking for the lowest hanging fruit(easiest girls to bust). If you're too much of a challenge for them, they'll move on to someone else. They're not going to put too much resources into busting 1 girl unless she's involved in something that can net them several charges like prostitution AND drug dealing. I've seen them take an escort agency down around here but probably because they were able to get multiple girls who were doing both of those.

    Trust they are not a thing of the past. Not going into detail.... I returned to dancing initially for a reason. I'm now just a dancer only until I get a vanilla job and keeping it that way.

    I think I understand what she is beating around the bush about...…….

    For many decades contact with LE has always been a risk associated with working in the adult industry. As of 2018-19...FOSTA/SESTA has cut into the use of electronic communication for both providers AND LE.


    It's easy for an indie girl to have contact with LE if someone actually makes a point of siccing them on her, OR she has some sort of problem that comes to the attention of LE. (It even happened to me and I am the queen of being discreet. I was mentored by the best in that regard.)

    LE does not regard working women in any respectful light. We are pawns, "little girls lost" or whatever patronizing shit Officer Bar Brady wants to throw at us. We just "go through the system" like everyone else.

    As for NOW...….We're all stuck taking measures to protect privacy, get rid of problem clients AND learning the ropes to promote ourselves within the bounds of our new social reality.


    To address the OP question.....YES stings/busts still happen. It's just life.

    Ah this is like the full circle of military life, the adventure, the danger, the Jodie

    You can assume whatever you want to. The reality is that LE are still out there and will still be doing stings and making arrests. The media does not report every sting or bust that takes place. You never know when or where LE will strike. I do personally know escorts who were recently busted and are currently facing a court appearance and possibly charges and jail time. I'm not giving any more details other than LE are are out there, watching. Some are dressing in plain clothes and using normal looking cars instead of LE cars. In some states they can engage in sexual activity and make an arrest afterwards. It is like that in my state so beware.

    Google and you can find articles everywhere on prostitution stings:

    And once you are on their radar if you work on a higher $ level than a backpage girl, they keep watch. Not worth the PTSD from dealing with them on and off for 2 years at all. ...and it started because it was reported many times by some old guy who had nothing better to do with his life lol. Not worth the nightmares and stress I still have from dealing with that. It was a drawn out investigation not a sting I was sucked up in. My place was also searched this year as well WHILE a customer was still having his appointment since the idiot opened the door for LE and I told him not to. I just stick to dancing only and finding a normal job now lol. Scared me straight. I was in the game for years so I was not stupid with playing it, but these last 2 years were hell for me. Kinda all I'm going to say about that nightmare...it's no glam job IMO but it really helped me when I needed the money bad so I'm appreciative of that .

    ….dang. See, this is why I'd rather not live in Florida. You never know if a crazy man, a boa constrictor or an alligator is going to mess up your babies.
