Web Design

13 posts in this topic

Hi All,

First time post, just after some opinions on Escort web design. 

I'm currently at Uni studying web development and design, due to the nature of what I do, I often advertise for private work to help fund my way through Uni... Or beer money! ... Recently I have had a few requests to develop escort sites to which I declined, but this got me thinking, what is the legal situation surrounding this... Actually hosting and design a be-spoke website? Has anyone have any experience in this field and care to offer some advice? 

Thanks in advanced

J

if the lady is truly independant and working alone you should be OK

if more than 1 lady is working in one place its a brothel, and there is a chance you could be done for aiding and abetting. (Brothels are illegal)

be careful with too explicit pix. the US has strict rules on this, and you need to make sure minors cant see em.

Nothing illegal, provided that you don't exercise any control over the escorts, such as taking calls, bookings or arranging travel etc. That's assuming that the escorts are older than 18.

As Silverado said, you are not in in way on the wrong footing with a law, if you design, or design and host website for WG.

I am not sure about if you going to get any "beer money" though for doing, it. Maybe just for a pint or two. :). Seriously: I think you might be a bit late, to accumulate any dosh from making escorts websites. Of course, I am sure it will be little few who might employ your skills, (as you said, and I believe you, some did enquired).

I don't know why you said that you also want to host it, as I would thought that majority of escorts would prefer to find theirs own host ( for around £2-£3 a month), as well that they will be in the control of thirs domain, FTP, etc.

In our days majority of the escorts build websites themselves: with the Wordpress, Moonfruit, (just to name a few) various templates downloaded from the net, and plethora of the others WYSYWYG tools which they can be used for free, without knowing any coding.

There are well established professional website design companies also, who particularly specialise to build websites for the escorts, if they want something more snazzy. They do it with a CMS (content management system), so if its any updates, changing pictures, text, etc. escorts can do it themselves, and not depend from the particular webmaster. I am not going to name them here, (I don't want to be blamed to promote them, and I was not asked to).

Anyway: if you got some enquiry to make a website.. do it, while they offering dosh! Because, usually there are so many new aspiring webdesigners, (and they are very good!) do it for free, just to build theirs portfolio. (as well as to sneak on unpublished escort pictures, and feel they might get some kind of freebie).

Do you really think the majority of girls can understand how to use Moonfruit?

I really doubt it

Pay up and get a 1/2 decent website

OI!

What is so wrong with Moonfruit may I ask?

:)

Good old Moony has served me well these last few years thankyou very much!

It couldn't be easier to build a site and anyone who knows their way around a keyboard can do it.

The main advantage over having a web designer do it for you is that you can alter or amend it any

time you wish to..... without waiting for your web builder to get around to making your adjustments.

Are you joking? It's a piece of p*ss. Or are you one of those who thinks if we weren't doing this job, we could only get a job stacking shelves? *rolls eyes*

Well I can only speak for myself, but I had a go once to try and help a lady I knew and can categorically state that I wouldn't be able to build one if you held a gun to my head (but then again, I've stacked a lot of shelves in my time and whoring is the only reason I'm not still doing it as a way of killing time between cleaning offices and pulling pints). I manage my site content myself thanks to my lovely website lady's idiotproof CMS, which I've had since the beginning and as far as I know these are far more common than they used to be - I've never had to wait for anyone to make changes on my site and I doubt many others would if they had the choice.

As well as Moonfruit and the rest of the usual suspects there is also Wordpress, which IMO is much easier to use and even I managed to completely overhaul my blog with it - some of the websites I've seen that ladies have made with WP have been fantastic, and generally a lot less problematic than the Moonfruit ones. Unless someone is wanting a seriously flashy all-bells-and-whistles type site, I don't think there's going to be a massive market for web design for businesses as simple as ours, to be honest. Mine cost under £200 all-in three and a half years ago and far fewer people did their own then.

I don't see the problem.

OP is doing occasional websites for money. Escorts have asked him for websites, so why not? They're just another client.

Whether he makes a fulltime career from escort sites is another matter, but as it's not illegal, why not continue designing websites for his clients?

Whether they can do it themselves or not is neither here nor there.

Maybe they could learn it, but hate computers and don't want to?

A relative of mine gets her car valeted because they do a good job and she can't be bothered the time and effort to do it herself. Kinda the same, no?

P.S. I was gonna slag off Moonfruit for looking absolute shite on mobile devices, but I've just tried one, and they've changed their design it seems, so it's now not so bad.

No need to get all antsy dear. Its only a message board.

I assume a few of you are capable of using Moonfruit but I think the majority of WGs would not have a clue

Why did you decline? There are no issues James. Escorting is a perfectly legal activity. Nudity appears in the national press every day. Thousands of Escorts, swingers, Escort agencies, have no problems hosting and displaying their websites.

If you would like to Email me I have need of an exciting young web designer. Artistic flair and a fresh approach are more important to me than experience or portfolio. I will need to see some proof of your ability before we engage, I will supply the hosting, the domain name the photographs and text I will take care of the SEO . You would design and I will of course pay the going rates.

You can find my email address via my profile here on Punternet or by google should you wish to advance.

I have a degree and several professional qualifications, (all mathematical), however when it comes to websites my brain turns to marshmallow.

I tried to set up a Moonfruit site and failed dismally, hence the 69d one.

Right brain/left brain. Some people understand computers and some don't. It does not have much to do with intelligence. I use my intelligence to pay someone to knock one up quickly rather than waste my time trying to set up something sub-standard.
