Ethical Advertising for Escorts and Companions
We are an advertising platform which puts escorts first. We aim to include all genders and demographics, provide fair pricing and focus on continual development. We developed Tryst in response to the 2018 take down of popular and vital ad site Backpage.com and it's affiliate cracker.com. Sex Workers across the globe needed a new and reliable Backpage alternative, so we stepped in.
Sex workers deserve the same services and rights as anyone else, Tryst is here to raise the bar. Run and developed by sex workers and technologists, we've put together an advertising platform which puts escorts first. We aim to include all genders and demographics, provide fair pricing and focus on continual development of the platform.
Why Tryst is different:
We cater to all genders
Tryst is inclusive of all genders. Whilst the male side of the escort industry is finally being represented on platforms, non binary and trans workers are still finding themselves very much left out of the conversation. During building Tryst, we consulted with a number of non binary and trans workers to find out exactly how we can help cater to their side of the sex worker community.
We don't use exploitative pricing models
High monthly fees are something which have become lodged in our industry from exploitative non sex work friendly sites like Backpage. Regardless of how high or low your rates are, you should only be paying for the value you get from our platform or any other platform. We don't believe in taking percentage cuts or charging hundreds of dollars because we can. We have set our prices low to ensure that all escorts have the ability to advertise.
Financial Hardship Program
We know that financial hardship is absolutely apart of this industry. We have developed financial hardship program which is dedicated to keep sex workers afloat through hard times. The program has a set amount of places per month which allow for complimentary advertising for two month. This allows time for escorts to get back on their feet whilst being able to keep their ads online.
We ask clients to support the community
Through Tryst we ask clients to put their money where there mouth is. Clients have the option of upgrading their free accounts to a client account which not only provides access to many more features but also enables them to give back to the community.
Upgraded client accounts are charged a small monthly fee which goes directly into the sex work community. Whether this is towards workshops or the financial hardship program, all client membership fees are for community development.
We are focused on social
Social is a such a huge part of both the marketing process and client selection process so we've made it a priority on the platform. As a part of our Beta form we have implemented Switter login which allows for easy sign up and an easy access point for clients to see how you are as a person.
We are dedicated to bridging the gap between sex and tech
From our beginnings in 2017, we have been dedicated to bringing the worlds of sex work and tech together. Our team covers both of these fields and believes in fully harnessing new technology to raise the bar in escort advertising and client management. You deserve the same level of support, analytics, development and value others are provided with outside of sex work.
