Craigslist Says Adult Services Listings Won't Return

Craigslist said that it had permanently closed the section of its sites in the United States that carried sex-related advertising, but it defended its right to carry such advertisements as well as its efforts to fight sex trafficking. "Craigslist discontinued its adult services section on Sept. 3, 2010, and there are no plans to reinstate the category," said William Clinton Powell, director of customer and law enforcement relations at Craigslist.
