Escort Reviews - The Erotic Review of Escorts

"TheEroticReview.com" Founder David Elms Arrested in California; Was On Run from Maricopa Charges - credit http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2009/06/theeroticreviewcom_founder_dav_2.php

The founder of the call-girl-finding Web site, www.theeroticreview.com, David Elms, has been arrested in California after two months on the lam from Maricopa County criminal charges.

Phoenix police say Elms:

...was arrested today south of San Diego while trying to cross the border from Mexico into the United States. It is believed Elms fled the United States and possibly went to Dubai, then tried to return to the United States through Mexico today when the Border Patrol arrested him. I am told he is currently in custody and en route to Torrance, California.

Elms is charged with trying to hire someone to injure a man (apparently a local competitor who also happens to be one of Elms' biggest critics).

If commenters on our most recent post about Elms are to be believed, the sex-trade promoter continued to run his Web site while on the run -- despite reports that he'd been ousted from his own company.

Vincent Bond of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency says Elms tried to walk through the Otay Mesa port of entry at about 2:20 p.m. on Monday. He presented a U.S. passport (June 1 happened to be the first day passports are technically required for re-entry to the States) and customs agents pegged him as a fugitive after running his name through their computers.

He'll probably be extradited to Phoenix now, where it'll sure be hotter for him than in Dubai.

 

Another round of problems has hit the popular Erotic Review website.  Recently founder of The Erotic Review Dave Elms was arrested in Phoenix on charges that he hired a hitman to murder two individuals.  This comes at heel of Elms last charges on guns and drug posession charges.  The Erotic Review shortly after these charges released a statement stating that they were cuttin ties with their owner effective immediatly.

The Erotic Review is the largest, and was the second escort review site on the scene, and has enjoyed much success in an industry that the erotic review was a huge figure in bringing the business online.  Although over the years, they have been hit with many scandals from reviews being taken down, to shady business practices, this recent round of legal problems for the erotic review, could be vital to them continuing to be a huge part of the market.  One thing this reporter of Escort News has been baffled with is how the erotic review has been able to mantain their power considering the other quality sites that exist like TnA Review and Bigdoggie.  There are many other quality escort sites that dont abuse power like the erotic review has done in the past, and when it comes to escort reviews, honesty and integrity in the market should be vital to the sites success.  That is one of the main reasons that Eros has been able to mantain such market dominance, and for good reason that they have always conducted their business in an honest manner.

Lets see what changes come of this recent charge to the erotic review, and the alleged cutting of ties with the owner.  This seems like its a press release for the public, doesnt seem to have much merit, reports of Elms owning and running the show have been around for years, and the business name seems to be a very nice disguise for something that has been hidden from the public.  I do have to give lots of credit to Dave in Phoenix and his site Sexwork for bringing the information to the public and to the attention of all hobbyists.

 

 


The Best Escort Resource by Jon Sanders

What is the best escort resource on the internet?  We took a poll of a number of hobbyists to try and locate what they thought was the best escort resource on the internet.  A number of people know about the two main Escort Review sites which are The Erotic Review, and the TnA Review.  Also the two top Escort Directory sites are Cityvibe and the Eros Guide.  The Eros Guide recently got a facelift which greatly updated the already easy to use and modern looking website.  You may have thought that the escort reviews sites were listed at the greatest resource, but another site has trumped The Erotic Review, and that site is the previously mentioned Eros Guide.  The have the best quality pictures, the largest variety of escorts and the most verified and comprehensive information any hobbyist can use.  Their two main cities are of course catering to New York Escorts and Los Angeles Escorts, but if you look through the website you will easily see that they pretty much cover the entire United States, Canada, and Europe more completly than any other site.  Not to mention they also have the Eros E-Zine which is a great resource for old and new hobbyists, plus the poll indicated that the Escorts that deal with them absolutly love them and the level of service they recieve.

America and the Escort Industry by Jon Sanders

The escort industry and business is a huge deal in the United States, I mean we could see that with everything made about Elliot Spitzer.  Roughly 700,000 men or .65 percent of the entire US male population visits an escort at least once a year.  Thats not even to mention the number of women that call male escorts, or the number of people that visit an escort multiple times.

According to one study the average male spends roughly $450 dollars a visit on an escort.  This is a major business in the United States that is riddled with crazy regulation and legal issues that make it more difficult than it needs to be.  In fact this is no different than alcohol prohibition, an industry that is flourishing and not close to going away, should be made legal, and be free to be in the open.  There are a number of positives to the industry that maybee get overshadowed by bad stories, or an overly consevative population that no doubt uses escorts.  If they they didnt who is spending the 109 million dollars on the escort industry.  A great question to ask ourselves? 

 


 

Escorts and the Economy by Jon Sanders

The economy in the United States is in turmoil, but what effect is this economic downturn having on the world oldest profession.  One survey recently pegged the size of the United States escort economy at somewhere over 100 million dollars.  Speaking to various escorts around the country have made it clear that the economy is defiantly having an effect on the way they do business.  Regular clients have fallen off the map, and many are having to seriously consider reviewing the standard rates that they charge.  While we cant gage the effects the economy is having on large escort directories such as the Eros Guide, we have certainly seen the effects that the economy is having on escort review sites.  Looking at the two main escort review sites shows that the TnA Review has a poll on their site that clearly shows most hobbyists have been effected by this.  The erotic review is having to beef up services by introducing a messenger service.  On the other hand one site that has actually increased the charges has been one of the largest escort posting sites on the Internet.  Craigslist.com which features erotic services ads in almost every major city around the world has begun charging escorts to post in their erotic services section.  Also looking at backpage.com a similar site to craigslist has begun dropping rates in some of their cities.

This reporter however wonders if the Spitzer effect has helped or hurt the industry, perhaps what we are seeing is many of the high profile hobbyists that used to partake the company of escort services have cut back, or the fact that certain cities that are stronger escort centers are being hit harder that others.  What the bigger picture here is that the escort profession has been the oldest profession and one of the most profitable professions in history.  Escorting and prostitution has had its  ups and downs over the years, and no doubt that the industry is in a bit of a slump much like every other business in the world, besides Walmart of course.  The escort industry is still remaining strong and judging by the active hobbyist community this industry will continue to remain strong forever.
