There needs to be accountability when placing ads online. Backpage does each local community and the adult entertainment industry an injustice by allowing anyone to advertise on their website. Licensed outcall entertainment providers review all applicants and insure that minors are not taking part in this business. Our official response on this way of advertising is that we feel it’s a total disregard for protecting individuals, minors, who are not able to protect themselves or that may be forced to work in an industry they do not wish to work.
We would like to extend an offer to Village Voice Media, Inc. and offer our location to verify advertisers. We would also like to encourage other licensed outcall entertainment providers to do the same in their city. It’s not only law enforcement and the local communities duty to help keep minors safe but the outcall entertainment industry as whole needs to do their part as well.
