Washington, Sept 6 (ANI): Craigslist website might have self-censored the Adult Services section of its website, but ads alluding to sexual services and prostitution can still be seen in the Casual Encounters section of the site.

The ads discovered across a number of regional Craigslist sites explicitly mention monetary exchange for sexual favors, seek "fun time$," offer a massage from an "attractive independent female" or seek a "mutually beneficial" meeting, reports ABC News.

Just a few days ago, the Adult Services section was replaced after a group of state attorneys general had released a statement that they believed the section should be eliminated.

"We hope to work closely with them, as we are with experts at nonprofits and in law enforcement, to prevent misuse of our site in facilitation of trafficking," Craigslist spokeswoman Susan MacTavish Best said last week.

In the past, Craigslist has maintained that the Adult Services section was for legitimate adult services, not prostitution. (ANI)
