Blown To Bits

Prostitution Is Now a Bits Business

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008 by Harry Lewis

The New York Times reports on a web site where you can rate prostitutes on a 0 to 10 scale, like for rating college professors. The man who started the prostitute-rating site said he did so because “There was no way to hold people accountable for their actions.” Some prostitutes¬†are reportedly worried about what will happen to their business if the site closes down. The rankings have gotten so important that one “escort service” threatened antitrust action when it was excluded, claiming that being listed was “essential to effectively compete in the upscale escort services market.”

Who knew? A lot of people, apparently; the site gets up to a million hits a month.
