Prostitution Ad Ban Creeps Forward, Threatening Social Media and Sex Workers

A measure making prostitution advertising a federal crime passed the House Judiciary Committee this morning.

"This legislation is about more than just," said bill sponsor Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Missouri), promising that the changes would "wreak havoc" on "hundreds of websites."
John Lund Blend Images/NewscomHouse Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia) crowed that the bill "empowers prosecutors with new tools" to hold human traffickers accountable.
But Goodlatte is lying—nothing in the bill addresses penalties for actual human traffickers. Instead, it would allow the government to treat websites and social apps as if they are human traffickers if bad actors should communicate through their digital platforms and tools. (For more about how this would work, see my post from yesterday.) The bill would also make posting or hosting prostitution ads a federal crime.
If H.R. 1865 becomes law, the FBI would be able to prosecute Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Craigslist, and myriad other sites where sex workers advertise and/or communicate with clients—even if the sexual exchange is only alluded to and never completed.*
Goodlatte said that in crafting the legislation, he "consulted with local prosecutors, and also with the Department of Justice." Notably, he does not mention consulting with any sex workers, tech companies, sex-trafficking victims, or any groups that work directly with sex-trafficking victims.
If he did, he might learn that digital advertising has revolutionized the sex trade, making it much more possible for women to work without the aid of abusive or controlling pimps; to screen clients before seeing them; and to generally take more control over their bodies, businesses, and personal safety. Meanwhile, it's also been hugely useful to law enforcement and families for finding victims of exploitation (something that would be all but impossible if street-based sex work were the only option or if traffickers start turning to the dark web.)
But in the delusional minds of folks like Goodlatte and Wagner, everyone engaged in sex work will simply stop if there are no web-ad platforms and all the sex traffickers will simply let their victims go. (Drugs went away when we made those illegal, too, right?) So their goal is to eradicate any web platforms where sex buyers might communicate with sex sellers.
After all, catching actual evildoers is too hard. "Advertisements rarely, if ever, will say the person advertised is a 'victim of sex trafficking,'" Goodlatte lamented. Easier for authorities to stop distinguishing between forced or underage prostitution and sex that free adults consent to have.

Summer Girlfriends Get Away

So I had this vision of something I really want to do with my girlfriends this summer, and I want to share this idea with all of you ladies because I think it would be such a fun thing that maybe you all might want to try something like this as well. I think this will be great for the body and mind and every woman should do this once in a while. What I'm talking about is somewhat of a Spa Day. Only I'm not talking about going out to one of those expensive day spas. 

First off, when it comes to stuff like facials, hair masques, ect... I've always preferred the DIY way.
For the most part, I really don't like store bought products that have a bunch of additives in them. I like all natural made from fresh ingredients. Not to mention it saves on money!

So here's my idea...

I want to take an overnight trip to Lake Tahoe with my girlfriends. When we get there we can enjoy relaxing and sun bathing on the beach.

This would also be an opportune time to get some sexy photo sets done as well.

Might even try getting some exercise in by hiking or biking the Flume Trail, which circles around the Lake, with gorgeous views of the water. There's also paddle boarding as well.

 Getaway Girls Tahoe

Where to stay?

Well I used to always stay at the Best Western every time I went to Tahoe when I was a kid. Just a 3 minute walk from the lake, they provide FREE breakfast and it's located in a restaurant with an actual menu selection not that continental stuff you serve yourself. Outdoor pool to get some laps in and a hot tub to relax in as well. It's also very inexpensive.

So after a day of getting in touch with nature, working on our tans, and a little exercise, it's time to soak in the Jacuzzi for a bit. Letting the hot water and the jets relax the muscles.
What to do in the evening?

If your girlfriends also happen to be camgirls as well, you can always take advantage of Best Western's FREE WIFI and do a Multi Girl Cam Show and make some money!

As we all know, the more girls on cam, the more traffic your chat room will get! I've always made money any time I cam with another girl.

Advertise to your fans ahead of time to really get the most out of your show!


But what if your girlfriends don't cam or maybe you want this to be an actual break from work? What else is there to do?

When I was a kid, we used to go get dinner at Harvey's restaurant located on the 19th floor. It had great food and a beautiful view. But the wait was a bit long to be seated, and it was also a bit pricey. It's definitely a great place to go, but I think I would want to try somewhere I haven't been yet.

This looks like a place I'd like to check out.
Full bar, dance floor, smoking allowed, Friday nights Ladies drink FREE all night, Saturdays Ladies get in FREE until midnight. 

 Opal Nightclub Stateline NV

There's also plenty of casinos to try our luck at as well.

We can try out some of my home made sugar scrubs, face and hair masks and watch a little TV or a movie before going to bed. 

Finally, we'll enjoy our FREE breakfast the next morning at Best Western's lovely restaurant before heading back.

Anyways, that's just a little fun idea I would like to make happen this summer. What about you? Is there something you'd like to do with just you and your BFFs this summer? Do you have any suggestions on where to go for an awesome girlfriend get away. If so please share in the comments section.

The Devistating Effect of Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs have got to be the worst infestation that a person can have. I'd gladly welcome ants, fleas, lice, mice, termites, and even cockroaches in lieu of bed bugs, any day of the week.

Now you may be thinking to yourself, "as far as personal catastrophes go, a bedbug infestation sounds fairly minor". You might even wonder why it pops up in the headlines so often, alongside all of the other "real problems" people have...
Until, that is... it happens to you!

Then you find out it's A FUCKING NIGHTMARE.

I did, when bedbugs infested my home. I didn't even know they were real until someone told me what they were. I honestly thought it was just something people said to kids at night. (The phrase has a whole new dark meaning to me now.)

Bedbugs were first brought into the US by early colonists, where they thrived for many decades. However, by the 1950's, bed bugs had been all but eradicated in the developed world, thanks to the availability of new pest control products, coupled with the widespread use of vacuums and washing machines which helped to control the spread of infestations in living spaces.
But bedbug infestations have now been on the rise since in the late 1990's. So much so that's it becoming an epidemic again. A big reason for this ihmo, is because so many people are just like I was before I got them, which means there's a lack of public awareness about bedbug prevention methods.

(Increased international travel is also thought to be a main contributing factor in the rise of the bedbug epidemic.)

Nobody likes bed bugs and due to social stigma, nobody wants to talk about them, but it’s time we start. It can only get worse if we refuse to address the problem head on. I myself, feel like I'm on the brink of madness here. I'm too paranoid to get a good night's sleep, and I fall in the percentage of people who just so happen to be allergic to bedbug bites, and I have disgusting itchy red welts and scars on my body as a result.

The anxiety, depression, and sleep deprivation that this has caused has resulted in me not being on cam much lately.

I've been so afraid that someone will notice them and know what they are or simply find it such a turn off to look at, that they decide they'd rather not hang out in, or return to my chat room. I think it's horribly unfair that anyone should have to go through this and live in secrecy for fear of being looked down on or judged. So fuck it. I'm making an attempt to try to end the stigma, educate others, to help aid in prevention, and to let others who maybe going through the same ordeal, (but are to afraid to tell anyone) know that you are not alone.

Now before I go any further, let me debunk some rumors:

First of all, bedbug infestations have nothing to do with how clean you are. All classes of people, from all walks of life have experienced bedbug outbreaks. Even multimillionaires like Howard Stern aren't immune.They can infest everything from train seats to wallpaper to baseboards to your fucking alarm clock.
Bed bugs like to travel and are good hitchhikers. They will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures. They can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs can also hide in electrical switch plates, picture frames, wallpaper and nearly anywhere inside a home, car, bus, or other shelter.

Bedbugs can live for up to a year and a half without feeding!

Bedbugs' s saliva contains an anesthetic that it injects into your body while they're feeding, so you can't even feel it when they bite you.

They will routinely travel as far as a 20-foot radius from their hiding places (and back) in one night to take a blood meal. Bedbugs are very adaptable. They move quickly, and can pass through much smaller openings or cracks, than most people expect. Even Ph.D. entomologists who work with live bedbugs for the first time are often surprised.

The amount of false information out there about bedbugs makes things much more difficult in eradicating the problem.

DON'T use foggers/bug bombs in an attempt to get rig of the problem all by your self. YOU MUST GET AN EXTERMINATOR!
(Foggers/bug bombs will only make things worse.)

You're going to need to do a lot of housekeeping and cleaning, because bedbugs can hide anywhere and everywhere, and pesticides can't be applied to everything you own. You'll need to get rid of ALL clutter, and launder everything that's washable in hot water.

You're also going to have to clear out all of your cabinet and dresser drawers for the exterminator to treat. And because of how long they can live (a year and a half) without feeding, you can also expect to be keeping ALL of your clothes, and other fabrics stored in air tight bags for the next 18 months. 

Taking the necessary steps to rid yourself of a bedbug infestation is going to cost an "arm and a leg". You will have to run everything you own through the dryer at least once a week, and you need to get the proper mattress, box spring, and (maybe) couch covers, specifically designed for bedbugs, which is expensive, but you have to do this if you truly want to give yourself a shot at beating this.

I'm trying my best right now, but I am truly at my wit's end, and this whole experience has left me feeling more alone than I have ever felt in my whole life.

This truly is the kind of shit that nightmares are made out of...

*Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation.
*Check your bed sheets for tell-tale blood spots.
*Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays.
*Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.
*Never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation. You might consider having a pest control professional inspect the furniture as it is difficult to detect an infestation if you are untrained.
*Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs.
*Bed bugs are elusive creatures, so it is imperative to seek professional pest control to address an infestation.

If this post sounds familiar, well then it's probably because you might have already read this when I posted this anonymously on ACF. Yes that was me. When I first posted about this I was too embarrassed to come out publicly, but I realize now that I have nothing to be embarrassed about.
I have since moved from the last apartment that I lived in when I first wrote about the subject. I now have the problem again in my new place. I'm not sure if the place was already infested before I moved in, or if I brought them with me from my old place. When I moved in, I pretty much started over from scratch. I threw away almost everything I owned before moving in here for the specific purpose of not bringing those fuckers with me. But I suppose it's still possible that I could have over looked a bug or an egg on one of the few items I did take with me. (That's all it takes) 

So now it's back to the drawing board... Things are a little bit easier though now that I have my own washer and dryer in my new apartment. So I'm thankful for that. But I still have to get new beds (the beds I have now are "captains beds which are the worst kind of bed to have if you have bed bugs) , mattress encasements,  bedbug traps, and a shit ton of vacuum lock bags to store all of my belongings. Hiring an exterminator is only half of the battle, the other half is on me. Unfortunately times are tough right now, and I need a little help. If you've enjoyed this blog, or my other blog, MyFree MFC Profile Help, and would like to show your support, I have a wishlist on Amazon with the things I still need to get to help me fight this infestation. Or just retweeting this post for me would also be a big help as well.

For anyone who may be dealing with a bedbug nightmare of your own, check out this youtube channel I found that has lots of good info on how to get rid of them and what you will need.

I would just like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the angel who bought me the items I needed from my amazon wish list. I was crying tears of joy. Literally, I was blubbering like a baby.
