Retrieved Archived from the original on Here Media Inc. The New York Observer. The Rise of Rentboys". According to Knight and other escorts, hourly rates were driven down across the industry as Rentboy's diaspora migrated to those sites that remained. Like Knight, escort Abel Rey has relied on personal branding to ensure clients can find him online without Rentboy. He's hosted a YouTube series called " Ask An Escort " since March and kept active on social media, allowing past clients to find him via Google searches.
But while Rey thinks business will always keep going regardless of which websites prevail, he says Rentboy represented a sad loss. Kate D'Adamo, National Policy Advocate at the Sex Workers Project , a New York—based legal aid foundation for sex workers, said that it may have been Rentboy's work in the wider community that made them liable for prosecution.
Others have argued it may have been down to an H1B visa application for an employee made in But if outreach and visibility is what exposes sites like Rentboy to legal action, D'Adamo said, that's a much bigger problem. D'Adamo mentioned RedBook, a popular website for sex workers to find and vet clients based in the Bay Area, which was shut down by the Department of Justice, FBI, and IRS in for "money laundering derived from racketeering based on prostitution. Knight said that "there is no sense of community" in his industry now that Rentboy is no more.
He misses the ease of promotion Rentboy brought to his work. And sometimes, we individually have to fight for basic day-to-day dignity. Knight, like Rey, said he's also made a larger push into social media, and is making forays into other interests—animation, graphic novels and music—to bolster his online presence.
He said that despite the increasingly fragmented nature of his industry online and a depression in hourly wages, the turn away from central websites has helped him. The clients get bored, they want to see something new after a while.
