My Redbook siezed by feds – Update

myredbookThe indictment is out and you can see by looking at it the feds ( FBI and IRS) are totally following the money trail. They  have all the money transfers listed and all the assets. Seems you can make millions of dollars off escort advertising, but i already knew that. The people arrested had cash in banks, a couple of cars but no real property at least if they do it hasn’t been found yet.

I cant express enough how important it is to pay your taxes. If you deposit 10K or more into a bank, the bank will report that money to the IRS and eventually you will have to account for that money and if it doesn’t match your income then you are in it deep with the government.though it might take them a few years to find you ans seize everything you have.  In this case i’m guessing The Redbook people will lose it all and lets face it an ad site is a legal business. So it is all unnecessary and short sighted.  They really screwed the pooch on this one and a lot of people are scrambling because of it.

New direction

antique-weather-vane
Which way will the wind blow
New direction, no not One Direction the boy band. How dare you bring them up! The NEW direction is me or rather this site. Say good by to Confessions Of A Message Board Hooker and hello to Jenny DeMilo.com. The archives will stay and there is lots of great material i spent many years writing, venting and all around just saying what i think. Be sure to check it all out. I wrote about the escort world from the perspective of someone in it long before it was fashionable to do so and i id it under my working name. Also a rarity that exists even today.   I was a GFE escort, i am not one any longer. Though i suppose i the eyes of the world i will always be a whore. Its what happens to all sex workers. Work once and forever be a whore. I however worked more then once, i was an escort for years. I am not one any longer. I now work as a Hypno-Dome and professional Dominatrix. So yes i’m still a sex worker but now im on the legal side of the business. Its different and though I no longer get naked with strangers for cash, sex work will always be a part of who i am. I will always fight for the rights of sex workers and my big mouth.. that will never go away. I may still vent and tell it like it is in this blog but odds are it wont be about escorting and the escort world too much as thats not my focus any longer. Don’t be sad though there is plenty to be upset about and vent about in the hypno-domme world. Most importantly how payment processors and financial institutions want to drive us from being able to actually access services that we need to run our very legal business. See theres that once a whore always a whore thing popping its head up again. So if you were a fan of my speaking my mind, that will not stop. I couldnt even if i wanted to.

My focus is hypnosis fetish session recordings and im pretty good at it if i do say so myself. I have a unique style that just screams “Jenny DeMilo” Welcome to my new direction.

Adult Industry Truth

A friend is trying to make a difference for sex workers. She along with others have created Adult Industry Truth. Take the survey and help get the truth out about sex work, your truth, the realties of sex work and how you feel about the work you do. Too many times other people try to speak our truth as sex workers, tell our stories in ways that furthers whatever agenda they have. Lets do something to about that.

From their site:

Our mission statement:

  • To help collect and distribute quality research about the diverse experiences of those involved in erotic labor and commercialized sex industries in the U.S.
  • About our surveys:
    • We want to create safe outlets for those involved in buying/selling sexual fantasy services or erotic labor to be able to share their experiences without fear of judgment or reprisal.
    • We honor and respect the differences between consensual sexual labor done by choice or due to circumstance, versus forced sexual labor, or trafficking.
    • We feel it is important to create data that includes a wide variety of experiences about the sex trade to help provide more accurate information, and understanding about the various erotic labor/adult service industries.

Aphrodite Companions Busted

Busted
Aphrodite Companions was busted the other day. The husband and wife team who ran that NY/FLA escort agency are being held without bail on prostitution and money laundering charges. Agencies get busted all the time, which is why I write all the time about why you shouldn’t work for one as an escort and why its dangerous to use one as a client. Agencies have a habit of being busted because since they are illegal business they tend to bend the legal business rules  yanno like  paying their taxes and trying to hide their income. They look good to prosecutors who if they were going to bust an independent girl would only get a misdemeanor prostitution charge, those prosecutors who in a situation with an agency can all it an “International prostitution ring” bust people on promoting prostitution, pandering, money laundering, tax evasion and so much more. They stack up those charges
What makes this bust more interesting is they didn’t set up a meet with a client or escort and flip them or bust them. According  to court papers recently unsealed done all “digitally”. They’ve got emails and they are also going to try to use TER reviews to help take this agency down. Yes, escort reviews. Yanno the things anyone can write and where any anonymous person can say anything about any one. It will be a long haul for the state to prove anything with reviews ( hearsay conjecture made up i made her cum 5 times penthouse story letters) but they will try. Who knows whats in the emails, I’m guessing the agency owners said shit they should have. Got lazy or careless. It was a year-long investigation and to my mind the worst thing that came out of it wasn’t that these questionable people got busted (they have a long dramatic history fighting with other agencies and not exactly a good rep dealing with the workers who worked with them) but that a TER moderator was reveled to have traded good reviews for free sex of the girls who worked for them. Is that anything new? No mods try that shit all the time and are accused of it all the time though usually it’s not released in court documents for all to read what a low life asshat a TER mod can be. This one according to the state of NY also wrote bad reviews about Aphrodite Companions competitors. What a dirt bag. I hope he gets a subpoena and has to testify in court about what he did and it ruins his fucking life.
This kind of game playing with people’s lives is one of the reasons people hate to be reviewed or why they shy away from the whole review thing. Assholes like this and agencies like this that try to manipulate the situation so they can get laid for free or because making a huge amount of money off the backs of hard working sex workers just isn’t enough for them they want or need more money, a bigger house, a bigger TV whatever the fuck it is. Greed and deceit are rampant.
Fuck all those people for being so damn shady. Fuck the agency for being stupid and greedy,  fuck the TER mod for being a dirt bag, fuck TER for allowing this tool to work on their site. They are culpable as well. I have a feeling these idiots will either plead out and do a few years or the whole thing will fail as it seems on pretty shaky ground if they are trying to use reviews as evidence. Or maybe this TER mod is working with the state of NY to further this bust… wouldn’t surprise me and would be the first time a TER mod flipped and worked with the police. That site is toxic.

Don’t Be a Cunt

Rage against the reviewer
Reviews, reviews, reviews.. It’s all the rage to rage against reviews. Ok, I get it they are problematic but lets not forget that potential clients sometimes read them and use them when choosing an escort to see. We don’t have to like that but it is a fact. Lets also not forget that as much as we may not be comfortable with reviews raging on men who use them from the ultra obsessive reviewer to the casual reader just makes us look like the crazy ones. I’m serious and I know that seems strange coming from me. The chick who in the last decade went to war with review culture and put my money where my mouth was by putting my actual working name on it. However there’s a huge difference between shining a light on review culture, how it affects an escorts business and especially how it makes someone feel to be reviewed in a straight forth manor and being a raging cunt to every man who’s ever read a review and had the unmitigated nerve to say so.

Reviews are currently being hotly debate over on that collective sex worker blog that’s “One Big Service Piece”  people are raging and people are being thoughtful and many people adding their 2 cents to the conversation. I do see a theme though, if any man has an opinion or wants to participate in the conversation be he sending in a email in response to a call for entries or just simply posting a “Hey I never thought of it this way before” comment on a blog post he will get demeaned and belittled. Clearly there are sex workers who can not see beyond their own need to feel slighted, insulted or whatever their personal issue is (it feels and looks personal) to see that maybe, just maybe some client thoughts and perspectives might be insightful, useful or at the very least good to know.

Sex workers are only half of the equation …. sex workers need clients to yanno actually work and if you are such a raging cunt that you cant take a breath before you unleash your pent up anger and furry on some dude who’s just trying to be part of the conversation and may actually be agreeing with you. Well then maybe you need to go into actual therapy.  Men are not the enemy, clients are not the enemy. Yes, there is much change that could happen that would improve the lives of sex workers, but feeding into the stereotype that we are all just man hating cunts out to take their money and don’t really give a flying fuck about them, in my humble opinion not the best way to go about making any kind of change. Speak your mind, tell your truth but if your truth is all “fuck you, I hate you” then maybe you need a new line of work
