Funny, I blame Allentown prostitutes for the surge in my pants

One of the guys I work with was picked for soliciting an undercover Allentown cop a few years back.  The other guys made fun of him, not for trying to pick up a hooker, but because he was dumb enough to try picking up a hooker where the police typically run sting operations.

Yes, but the ladies of negotiable affection have moved well past the "roses" code.

Or so I've heard.

Don't ask me why you may be right because it's still rock and roll to me. So tell her about it, big shot.

Well we're hookin' here in Allentown
And they're hosing all the peep show rooms down
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
Cruising the block
Risking a fine
Well our fathers bought their porn all softcore
Spent their paychecks on barely more
Met our mothers at the titty bar
Asked them to dance
Cover their scar
And we're hookin' here in Allentown

But the Syphyllis was handed down
And it's getting very hard to pee-eee-eee-eee, eee-eee-eee, eee-eee-eee, eee-eee-eee.

Well we're hookin' here in Allentown
For the Craig's List chick who never showed
For the promises the meth-heads gave
If it got hard
Because they were shaved
So the misdemeanors hang on the wall
And our lawyers never helped us at all
No they never thought that whore would squeal
After giving her coke
And copping a feel
And we're hookin' here in Allentown

After Craigslist got rid of the "erotic services" section some invaded the good ole causal encounters section, and a bunch moved over to backpage. And the personals there are pretty clear that it's a sex for money situation. Frankly I'm shocked that they don't just have vice division set up to arrest hookers from craigslist and backpage

protip if you're looking to meet a "casual encounter" tineye or google image search the pictures before writing. You'll save the trouble of a bunch of hookers telling you that you're "wasting their time."

double protip: if their phone number is in the post 100% of the person on the other end of the phone will be asking for money for sex.

Just last night on the news, we had a story of a gal busted for prostitution, her boyfriend for pimping her. She showed up at a Ramada here in Albuquerque, she said she couldn't find a sitter, and had her 1 and 3 year old kids with her in the car. Hopefully offered a discount.

Pretty sure it's "generous" now. Annoyingly spelled with dollar signs.

Well, most of them will set up video call pre-interviews using vline.com etc (they charge $20+ for 5 mins)

This is the free market operating

Actually there is no reason why prostitution should be so hard difficult

It's been legal here since 2003 and actually, society hasn't collapsed, there hasn't been an epidemic of drug abuse, child rape or human trafficing

All that has happened is that the grit has been taken out of the wheels of commerce - no pimps to pay, no need for cops to waste time on victimless crime, women get full protection of the law (both criminal ans employment law)

Not perfect - and no business is - but a lot of the negatives have been taken out, without dong any of the damage that the moralists fretted about

I hate to tell these officers, but the website has nothing to do with the surge in prostitution. The surge is everywhere. Every major city across the US. I am more surprised it took them this long to become aware of BP, and it's only one of many sites.

I work with 2 vice cops, and here in Charlotte, here are some interesting facts:
* When the iPhone took off, many street hookers moved indoors and online. Mostly centering on craigslist since it's completely free and gives a sense of safety through false anonymity.
* When CL closed the 'adult' section, many women moved to BP,  but some just moved to the Casual Encounters section of CL.
* The online method allows these women to use fake and old photos to hide scars, the wear of abuse on their bodies, etc. to attract johns.
* Many of these women are kidnapped, abused, or hooked on drugs, then forced into it.
* Ever wonder why so many of them have tattoos? Hint: It's human branding in many cases.

Now, to add insult to injury here, the moralist nutjobs forget the following:
* In cities around the world where prostitution is legalized and regulated, there is a lower amount of gang-related activities.
* In those same cities, there is also a lower number of women and children kidnapped and forced into prostitution. And in the cases that do exist, law enforcement has more resources to recover those women and children before they are put in that situation, and has a much higher rate of recovery than in the US.
* and in those same cities, where it's legal income, they pay taxes, get healthcare, and have legal protection.

In Charlotte alone, it's estimated that over $1M changes hands within city limits any given day. Per year, that's $24.6M in state income tax lost. State-wide, it's over $250M annually in state income tax they miss out on. That would make up nearly half of the current state budget shortfall. Add in legalizing marijuana in a method similar to the Netherlands across the state, and that shortfall becomes non-existent. You also have law enforcement spending more time going after pedophiles, child prostitution, and gangs for their more heinous crimes.

It's not perfect, and I don't have the perfect method, but to me, with the state Allentown is in, it would make far more sense for them to legalize it in a controlled way. Hell, it would drive up tourism, the girls would be safer, and the income from tourism alone could turn the city around.

redmid17: Allentown is a horrible, horrible place.


That's the understatement of the year.  I was in Allentown about 6 years ago, just before the housing bubble went bust.  Even then it was beyond depressing.  I don't know how anyone could exist in such an environment and not have their soul crushed.
