Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
But make sure the website is clear that the escorts are not offering sex, but rather than the fee paid between a client and them is for time spent together only. Advertising for sex is illegal.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thanks for your quick response, Alex. Can I say; "to view the services provided by x person please click here" and the link would take the visitor to a page in the escort's private website where she lists her "services"?Do websites advertising for sex are prosecuted often? There seems to be a lot of them.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
As I have indicated, as long as they are not described as offering sex that is fine, otherwise its prostitution. You van say to view services offered by X click here.
I can't say whether many are prosecuted or not, there are no government stats for this.
Can I clarify anything else?
