The site sold advertisements for high-priced male prostitutes for several hundred dollars, then charged customers up to $299 per month to access the ads and this business produced more than $10 million since 2010. It was drawing 500,000 unique visitors daily. A criminal complaint cited several ads that referred to various sex acts, offered reviews of sexual performance and listed rates ranging from $150 an hour to $3,500 for a weekend. Prosecutors seized the website’s domain name. “I think we do good things for good people, and bring good people together,” Hurant said. The website took its name from a British slang term for a male prostitute. “We don’t advertise sex, we advertise people who want to meet people,” said Charles Hochbaum, Hurant’s lawyer. The seven defendants are charged with conspiring to violate the Travel Act by promoting prostitution.
