We were both hungry for intimacy and physical touch after years of wandering in the desert. Lily Penza, 46, had been overweight since her teens and suffered from dangerously low self-esteem.

At age 28, she moved in with the first man who looked her way.

I know it seems strange to eulogize what was basically an online red light district, but in my experience there was a brief moment when Craigslist Erotic Services transformed both the meaning and the means of being a sex worker. I'd come back to New York after an extended period away with the realization that yet again, I was flat broke. I had never blended my massage work with anything remotely sexual.

There one could open a virtual lemonade stand which operated according to self-imposed rules and regulations. Craigslist Erotic Services made sex work accessible to people who would never have considered doing it otherwise. A struggling writer and artist, I'd been earning a living as a licensed massage therapist. Nor had I ever so much as glanced at the erotic services section of Craigslist.

I'd used Craigslist once before to find a subletter for my Brooklyn apartment. I was a professional dater and a longtime veteran of internet dating. And I was having a lot of crappy experiences with men of dubious integrity. I had studied a variety of healing modalities and been praised by my clients as being extraordinarily gifted. But one day it came to my attention that many "providers" who should have been posting in the erotic services section were posting in the therapeutic section. But for some reason, after that, I kept looking at the erotic services section. I never would have expected it, but reading the ads had begun to turn me on.

That had worked out incredibly well, so I decided to advertise my massage business there (in the therapeutic services section). I confess that at that time, I was pretty disappointed with my love life. It had occurred to me more than once that I might as well be getting paid. I just want to pause here (in part because I can already hear the voices of my detractors and also because I don't want to appear insensitive to any human suffering).
