I’ve been spending my entire weekend researching and reviewing classified ads sites. One of those sites is known as Vivastreet and I’m not going to sugar coat anything here – IT SUCKS. There’s no doubt about it, vivastreet.co.uk is so bad and dangerous that using it quite possibly might cost you your freedom. Are you willing to give that up just to get off?
I didn’t think so!
If you said you’d be willing to give up your freedom just for some nookie that you have to pay for then I’m sorry but you, my friend, are an idiot. I say that in the most sincere and nicest way possible.
So, why do I think this site sucks so bad when it comes to hookups and fulfilling your dating desires? It’s because they’re as shady as it gets. In fact, they’re so shady that the DailyRecord.co.uk recently published an article linking the site with sex slaves and human trafficking. What can I say really? That’s what you get for using a crappy free classifieds site.
I’d like for it to be known that I am 100% against hiring any girls to have sex or provide sex services at all, period. If you’re into that type of thing, then you’re not going to like what I’m about to share today. At any rate, here’s my complete review of the site and everything I know that they’ve done to screw over both escorts and consumers.
My Review Of VivaStreet.co.uk (WARNING)
I’ll kick off my review by sharing some details with you about the business. Vivastreet is currently owned by a company called Digital Ventures Services Ltd. This company gets away with a ton of stuff and my guess is that it will eventually get shut down if enough pressure gets placed on the website and their operations.
Not Shy About Things
The first thing I’ll say is that the site is not shy about offering escort services. They have links all over the homepage which literally state that they’re the “popular links” on the site. I’m talking about things like London escorts, Bradford escorts, Glasgow escorts, Edinburgh escorts, Adultwork and even TS escorts. This is ridiculous and something that you should think twice about. No other classified site which largely covers to mainstream consumers makes mention of escorts on the homepage.
The Personals Section
I took a look at the Personals section and here’s what I noticed in the Women Seeking Men section (which is the section men typically check out). Many of the women post in multiple categories across lots of areas. This tells me that most of these women are obviously not local. If they were, they wouldn’t have the same listings across various geographical locations.
I also noticed that lots of the women provide their email addresses and contact information with nothing really verifying who they are or that the emails are real contacts. One thing I found absurd is that the Vivastreet site allows you to email people in the ads and send them your email address, phone number, a message, and even an attachment. This is really crazy considering the fact that there are so many issues that arise from contacting someone and providing them with your personal information without screening them. This is
The Adult Dating Section
VivaStreet.co.uk has an adult dating section which isn’t very impressive if you ask me. It’s within the Free Personals (hint: there are a few sites with free personals sections that actually work – click here to see them) and the Adult section of the VivaStreet.co.uk site. When you enter this section of the site, you’re presented with a disclaimer which you must agree to before entering the section of the site.
The biggest bunch of crap here is that the disclaimer states,
Vivastreet provides advertising space for adult entertainment providers, and for adults seeking adult entertainment services. Vivastreet is not an escort agency and does not play any part in the booking of any services.
How the hell can they say that they do not play any part in the booking of any services? They’re literally facilitating the connection between the escort/sex slave and the consumer. Although they are not booking the services through the site, without a doubt they’ve got something to do with it.
If you take a look at the ads you’ll notice that most of them are either half-ass or they’re so detailed that they’re hard to believe. Oh, and even worse, I found out that MANY of the images of girls shown in the ads are ripped from places like The Chive. Take this ad shown below, for example. It’s quite possible that the person who posted this advertisement did so by ripping a photo from The Chive. They just want your email address to spam you and maybe even meet in person to rob you.
In other words, you will likely not get laid using this posted ad…
Banner Ads & Other Ads
You’ll notice that this Vivastreet site is simply trying to get you to join other dating sites which they’re advertising on the personals page. The sites they want you to join are SecretBenefits.com and 40PlusMarket.co.uk. They also display some fake messaging ad in the right sidebar. Basically, the whole page is one big fake ad.
I’m not even going to get into the escorts because it’s obvious that they’ve got HUGE issues going on here. I’m talking about stings, human trafficking, sex slaves, and so much more. At least that’s what I gathered after doing some researching today.
Conclusion: Stay Away From VivaStreet
Look, unless you want to end up in jail or paying for something you need not shell out for or ending up on a fake dating site, then you’re best bet is to avoid Vivastreet completely. The recent human trafficking article published is really, really, scary as it discusses a lot of illegal activity. At that point, we’re no longer talking about a simple sex dating experience but an illegal and unwanted experience between two people.
Screw all that noise. None of that nonsense is worth it and you don’t need to put yourself or others at risk today with all the fantastic dating networks out there today. Just download one of the hook up apps listed here and you’ll be golden. No need to pay the girls. They’re on the site for sex only, nothing more. Bada boom, bada bing!
