I think he's probably right. I mean, a lot of what's in Casual Encounters is just straight men looking to meet other straight men. That's clearly not about sex. The rest of it is just innocent dating and some women looking to build their collection of roses.

Lots of gardeners on Craigslist, when you think about it.

I answered a listing in the 'casual encounters' section.

We casually encountered each other at the zoo, where we saw monkeys mate and birds bone.

I would call that sex-related.

I sold my old pickup truck on craigslist, and I think the dude probably boned somebody in it since then.

After a recent rain storm, I had a number of outdoor ornaments that were filled with water. I didn't know how to get the water out of some of my reflecting orbs so I checked on Craigslist.

I saw an ad from a woman stating, "Come to my place and drain your balls for only $50 / 30 mins." I thought, that's pretty quick and not a bad price. After a rather awkward encounter, I can assure you that there are sex-related ads on Craigslist and, dammit, some of them are rather cryptic.

Um.....it's the internet. EVERY part of the site is sex related.

I like to find other straight men to hang around with and talk about model trains.

We do it nude and there is some touching, but nothing gay.
 
2009-04-23 08:38:33 AM  
It would be so refreshing if the operator of a site like Craigslist would man up, disclaim responsibility for what the site's users choose to do, and tell the reporter to GTFO.
 
2009-04-23 08:38:35 AM  
My friends are about to use Craigslist to whore out their dog for breeding. Craigslist is MADE for pimps.

WTF? WHo farking cares. Its adults. what makes humans adults is wanting to have sex. GO WITH IT

I must have been confused about what a tranny hooker is. Must be auto parts or something.
 
2009-04-23 08:41:25 AM  
I want a turducken rammed into my prostate - m4m - 51

/probably has been listed at least once somewhere
 
2009-04-23 08:42:01 AM  
Wait, Craigslist has a non-sex related section?

I had some stones ground into my front lawn and on my sidewalk after the winter season of road salting, but I found the perfect service offer on craigslist. Thanks craigslist!

Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a society that had a healthy attitude towards sex?


The men/ladies/trannies could could make a living in peace, prices would go down, and the frustrated could get laid.
 
2009-04-23 08:44:10 AM  
That Blumenthal jackass wants to make it impossible to post pictures to craigslist? That's outrageous! How else am I going to know if my next couch is worth picking up for free?


Also, it's obvious by the complete lack of success of such postings that these people are advertising services no one wants. Since no one wants to get the services, I see no issue with preventing these ads from being posted.
 
2009-04-23 08:44:11 AM  
I sold a trombone I advertised as hardly ever used for music, mostly stuck up my ass while watching zoo porn in my neighbours' lingerie I stole. It sold in record timing.

There's a lot of sick farkers out there.

I like to sell imaginary items for my friend on craigslist. He got hundreds of calls about his 1967 stingray corvette that he had to sell because he was going through a painful divorce. He also got into the massage business for a while. It must be going well, because he hasn't answered any of my calls in about a month.

Its all about the journey....not the destination!!....I am up for just about anything....no expectations....no disappointments..Just fun and friendship to start with and then what ever we can come up with, it's all good.I have medium length hair (Natural Red Head) 38 C, average height and a tight and toned body. I'd be happy to show you a pic or two or more of me, just ask

It's not sex related except for the sex related section.

On a related note, I got a nice gold-plated razor blade for when I need to scrape paint off of mirrors. Also, a tiny gold-plated spoon for dipping out just the right amount of flour for tiny pancakes. I got them at Blotto's.

You know, Mr. CEO, just because you deny it, it doesn't make it any less true.

Some of the world's biggest sex freaks can be found on Craigslist and mIRC.

Police efforts to stop illegal activity on Craigslist are "outweighed by the enabling environment," said Mark P. Lagon, executive director of the Polaris Project and a former ambassador to combat human trafficking for the US State Department.

Vice cops don't know how to use the interent?

It is no different than the phone book, except those selling sex are a lot more obvious.

Boning is a pain in the azz. It's worth it, though, when the chicken salad is boneless.

We should also force everyone entering a shopping mall or public park to stop and identify themselves, because statistics show that more crime happens in places where more people are gathered, or victims are targeted in those places.

Let's face it, some percentage of any population will be criminals/victims. You have a site as big as Craiglist, offering people the opportunity to communicate, criminals are going to take advantage of that.

More freedom = more risk.

As Americans we should all be completely aware of this fact and embrace it.

Leave Craigslist alone. It is no more to blame for the massage therapist being murdered as Marilyn Manson is for Columbine.

"I would not describe any section of our site as 'sex related,' " Buckmaster wrote in response to a series of e-mailed questions from the Globe.

the very next sentence:
He acknowledged that Craigslist offers an "erotic services"

If "erotic" equaled "sex", you would have had sex with all the showtime after dark actresses you used to watch. See, that's why there are two different words there, because they have related although not exactly the same meanings.

No way. I'm afraid, and we need more things like the patriot act to keep us safe. This is the most free nation on the earth and we should keep it that way by staying safe. The governments job is to protect us and chairman obama can't do that. Only jesus can.

I agree with you 100% about how the biggest sex freaks that can be found on Craigslist.... I could not believe my eyes when I saw people that I went to high school with looking to hookups on there... The one girl I saw on there is a walking STD billboard but you wouldn't know it if you just saw her on street though...

/believes that even educators are big sex freaks as well
//not marrying just because my soon to be husband since he is a sex freak college professor

Everyone knows that Craigslist becomes sentient on August 12, 2023. Better to stop it now than face erotic service wrath.

I sold my old sofa and loveseat on Craigslist ... advertised them as having large cushioned arms perfect for bending that special lady over for farking. I suggested that if they were looking to buy a sofa on Craigslist, they had to know they were buying something that had seen a lot of ass. I just wanted to be straight up about it, and inform them these sofas were built for farking.

$550 for the set, the couple didn't even try to haggle
