Lately it hasn't been easy finding models using CL. And one that I did find asked for quite a lot of money considering how little I required as well as how uncompelling their portfolio was. Has CL lost its magic? lol.

yes.




besides them shutting down the adult section, you have all these jealous MF's who will flag your ads and models who over value their work.

definitely, when I first looked for models on Craigslist in 2005/2006 I found a lot of excellent experienced models to work with. Now it's almost, but not totally, impossible.

and I totally agree about the flagging problem.

The 'Adult' section is alive and kicking in the 'talent' section.
lol

There's probably 2 decent postings per 100 adult entries.

Maybe where you are, but not out here.  I can't even get a massage!

It works fine for me. I get a couple of models a week there, all trade.
