HIV-infested gay prostitutes are swarming all over dating Apps to rake in big bucks.
The Washington Post reports that, "But location-based apps like Tinder and Grindr — with their frenzied swiping and aura of casual sex — make a particularly good platform for this kind of advertising. “My Danish friend paid off his debt by becoming a gay prostitute,” reads an October 2012 , above a story about a man who used a promiscuous European hook-up site to pay off $70,000 of debt. The Internet abounds with similar stories and confessions: “I used to find queer guys on criagslist & grindr and make them pay me for sex,” reads , from May 2013, “… and I just tested positive for HIV.”
Gay prostitutes, many of whom are illegal aliens, are moving into major cities in the U.S. to drum up more clients.
According to the Washington Post, "Stories like this one, of course, highlight the need for more than just vigilant moderation on the part of social networks and dating sites; if the Internet has become “ for people in the sex industry,” then sex workers operating online arguably need the same protections that people on the street do: safe-sex education and health care, chief among them."
Dating Apps are making no plans to shut down their services.
