If you’re desperate enough to be looking for a hooker, try Myspace. Now I know you’re surprised that Myspace is still around, but let’s worry about the bigger issue here. Sex workers are taking over the once popular social media site.

According to a recent study by the Urban Institute, Myspace is quickly becoming one of the more popular sites for people to solicit sex on, ranking alongside websites like Craigslist and Backpage.com.

The study interviewed law enforcement, pimps, traffickers, sex workers, and child pornographers in the cities of Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Seattle, San Diego, and Washington, D.C.

According to one pimp, things can getting pretty serious in the digital world. He described a turf war started by another pimp, saying “Once he was on the Internet, Myspace was big, maybe 20-30 guys [other pimps] he was talking to … He’d make someone think they’re friends, then he’d try and get their girls. [He was a] mass manipulator.”

While Myspace is quickly becoming more and more popular among sex workers, the most popular site was Backpage, with Craigslist coming in second.

So if you’re lonely on your Saturday night and looking for something to do, why not try and see if your old Myspace account still works? It’s worth a shot.
