The U.S. Congress has passed the Stop Enabling Sex-Trafficking Act (SESTA, also known as
The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act or FOSTA).
SESTA amends Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, a federal law which has served as the bedrock of protection for online publishers – from Facebook, Yelp, Reddit and Twitter
to The Erotic Review (TER) – from being held liable for user’s posts on their sites. Under SESTA / FOSTA, the U.S. government can prosecute websites and those that operate them criminally for posts made by users. As a result of this new law, several large third party websites has made the difficult decision to block access to the website from the United States until such time as the courts have enjoined enforcement of the law, the law has been repealed or amended, or the third party websites have found a way to sufficiently address any legal concerns created by the new law.
TER (The Erotic Review), an excellent portal to advertise US tours and local US providers, is not alone in responding to this threat to your First Amendment Rights: Craigslist has pulled all of its Personal Ads, Reddit has closed a number of Subreddits and sites such as CityVibe and Men4RentNow have gone completely dark. Other websites have taken or are expected to take similar actions. At this moment we do not know if this will effect other countries (e.g France, Germany, Greece, UK, Sweden...), therefore I highly suggest our friends (new as old), to sign up for our newsletter on our KEEP IN TOUCH page to be in the loop of upcoming tours, new faces or any other news. Maybe one day third party advertisement might not be legal at all!
I highly support the ambition to hinder trafficking as there is a huge (hidden) problem, not only in Asia. It is around us in our Western Society, a modern slavery that unfortunately is growing. Not all women has a choice, not all enjoy what they do, at least we have and do at this place!
