If you've been looking for a backpage replacement, this guide is just for you.
We've tested and reviewed almost 70 backpage alternatives, and now narrowed it down to the 10 best new sites.
These sites range from directories to classifieds, and have escorts that have rates anywhere from $50 to $500. No matter what you used backpage for, this list has something for you!
#1 Tryst.link - Best Overall Replacement
Tryst is our pick for the best new backpage replacement. It's the "home of the independent escort" so the providers here can charge rates that cut out any agency fees. You'll find sex for as low as $80, as well as some exceptionally stunning escorts that charge anywhere from $150- $500 an hour.
One thing I love about Tryst is that the providers here actually pick up the phone! Every profile is verified and active, the response rate is incredible.
On the Tryst homepage you can browse listings for escorts near you. If you plan on traveling, you can use the search bar to find escorts in other cities. You can also use filters to search for men, women, couples, and non-binary providers.
All the escorts on Tryst are verified, so you won't see any spam, ads, or fake accounts, which is a big advantage over other backpage replacements like bedpage or doublelist. Each provider also lists their contact info, rates, travel schedule, bio, and availability. The contact info is very detailed, you'll find their instagram, twitter, email, phone number, and website, making it easy to get in touch and book short notice hookups.
Tryst was created by the people behind Switter.at, another good backpage alternative. Many of the sex workers using Switter started using Tryst as a place to post listings, giving it a big user base right from its start.
#2 - Slixa
Slixa has super hot escorts. If you want to have one of the hottest nights of your life, Slixa delivers.
It's one of the pricier sites though, the 'VIP' section has ladies like Adahlia, who charge as much as $400 an hour. Okay, that's not exactly like backpage, but it's still fun to browse and if you can afford it, more power to you.
There's also girls who aren't VIP. They cost closer to backpage girl rates, and will be anywhere from $50 to $200 an hour.
#3 - Ashley Madison
Ashley Madison isn't an escort site per say, but it's definitely a good alternative to backpage, and one of my new favorite places to go for sex.
The site itself is meant for married people looking for casual sex and affairs. Since not everyone is willing to date a married person it's easier to find horny women here if you're okay with keeping their secret.
They have a system where free members can message paid members, but free members can't message each other. The result is most women on the site are using it for free and guys have to pay, which balances out the guy to girl ratio really well.
#4 - Seeking
Seeking Arrangement is another interesting alternative to backpage. You can use the site to post ads for sugar relationships, in which one partner takes care of the other with cash and gifts, in exchange for regular sex.
A lot of the women on this site are broke college students or hot women working 3 jobs and financially stressed.
I've used the site a lot, and it ends up costing as much as an escort would. Most girls on here are happy with a $100 dinner date, or you buying them a $200 dress in exchange for sex.
#5 - AdultFriendFinder
AdultFriendFinder is one of the easiest ways to get laid for cheap.
There's a genius system behind the site. Free members can message subscribers, but not other free members. The result is many horny women use the site as free members, and wait for guys to message them.
It's way easier to meet women (or guys) on the site than any other hookup site i've found. And since the subscription is only $25 a month, i've saved money on escorts and scored lays I wouldn't have thought possible a few months ago.
I'd definitely recommend checking it out, it's been one of the best bangs for the buck post backpage.com
#6 - Switter.at
Switter is both an escort directory and a social network for sex workers (and our pick for the 2nd best backpage alternative).
Switter works kinda like Twitter, but only sex workers can have profiles. You can follow your favorite escorts' and like their 'toots' (Switter's version of a tweet). Whenever they post you'll get updates in your news feed and see their latest musings, sexy pics, or any special rates. It's a brilliant system that adds a new dimension to purchasing sex, a vibe that's even better than backpage.com in my opinion.
You can also go straight to the listings section at https://listings.switter.at. To view the listings you'll need to make an account by signing up with your email. You can then search by location for any sex ads near you. These come complete with a menu and list of rates.
Like Tryst.link, Switter has no spam or ads, which is a must for a good backpage alternative in our opinion. Both are made by assemblyfour.com, a kind of non-profit sex worker co-op, which helps make it a super unique platform, and the future of finding escorts online.
#7 - EscortDirectory
The name escort-directory.com sums this site up. It's one of the bigger backpage replacements, in a directory style.
Lots of backpage girls were posting here years ago, and now that backpage is down, this is their main spot to post.
One thing I love about this site is the cheaper rates. The girls might not always be as gorgeous, but you can really score sometimes and get a hot night for only $100. It depends on how hard you look.
Unlike our top two picks, there is more ads and spam on this site, which is one reason why we gave it a boot down the list. Be careful that the girls you message are verified and that their profiles seem legit.
#8 - DoubleList
Doublelist is a site for personals ads and finding casual sex. If you used backpage to just post ads for free sex, then this is site is something you should check out.
About a year ago this site was a ghost town, but it's since picked up steam and has grabbed up most of the personals refugees.
If you want to find escorts it's a little more underground, you'll need to comb through the posts to find posts that offer rates.
The site is well organized and has different sections for M4M, F4M, M4F, etc. You can post pictures and see others.
It does censor your language automatically, which is kind of funny. Instead of seeing "looking to suck some big cock tonight" you might see "looking to wetten a large phallus this evening".
#9 - Bedpage
Bedpage is a site that looks the same as backpage, but is pretty much all fake ads and posts.
It's almost worth checking out just to see how ridiculous the spam is. If you can find an actual legit ad on the site I will buy you a beer.
Even in San Francisco, where backpage used to really shine, you'll just find the above fake listings. Fake bedpage ads are easy to spot from a mile away, tons and tons of emojis.
I have a theory that the owners do not allow anyone to post real ads because they do not want to get in trouble with the law like backpage.com did. It also appears that ebackpage, yesbackpage, and ibackpage are all owned by the same person, since they all link to each other on their homepage.
Even though it's not a good alternative, we still include it as an honorable mention to backpage.com.
#10 - Rubmaps
Did you ever use backpage to score some quick $30 blowjobs or handjobs? Then rubmaps might be a good alternative for you.
It shows all the massage parlors that have 'happy endings'. Each parlor shows the names of the masseuse (so you can ask for them) and the price they charged for an erotic massage.
You can then read other peoples' reviews to learn the details of what you can expect and how to navigate your way to getting jerked off.
The downside of rubmaps.com is it does have a $20 monthly fee to see other reviews. But you can still see all the parlor details and locations for free.
#11 - EscortMonkey
Eroticmonkey has cheap escorts and hookers that always pick up the phone. It's one of my favorite new sites like backpage.
Rates here will be as low as $50 an hour if you look hard enough, and even lower if you don't want penetration or just a quick hand job. There's also expensive escorts too, but more like $200 expensive, not $1000+.
On each girls' profile page you can see all their measurements and rates. They also leave a hand written bio where they make their pitch on why you should fuck them over their competitors.
Erotic monkey also lets people leave and read reviews about each escort, but you have to be a premium member to see the reviews, which costs $30 a month. I'd recommend skipping premium and using the free version, unless you are really curious what the reviews have to say.
#12 - AdultSearch
AdultSearch.com is just as much a sex guide as is it is an escort site. You can see listings for local working girls, but right next to that there's lists of strip clubs, erotic massage parlors, sex shops, and even gay bath houses. They also have a forum where you can ask questions or see recommendations for escorts.
The way it's structured makes it good for planning a vacation or trip to a new city. You can reserve an escort to take care of you, and plan a sexy itinerary all in one spot, essentially.
If you are an escort it's important to note that they charge $10 a month to post an ad, and you can only post one ad at a time unless you email them with more verification.
#13 - Eros
Eros is an elegant version of Backpage with a lot of sexy classified ads offering a slew of erotic services to anyone who needs them.
Unfortunately, some of these posters came under the long hand of the law resulting in a Homeland Security raid because they allegedly offered a bit more than massages and this scrutiny seems to echo the likes of the Craigslist Personals and Backpage shutdowns. But Eros has a system in place that allows anyone using the website to report suspected trafficking, so all users can enjoy a variety of nice, clean, and legal services.
Users will see a beautiful array of VIP college girl escorts, milfs, XXX stars, and more models from their fantasies. Each post has descriptive bios, age, name, location, availability, services, and more relevant info after selecting someone special.
Extra subcategories on the eros escort site are Trans, Dancer, and Tantra.
#14 - CityXGuide
This site was actually taken down recently. Please read our post on cityxguide alternatives for more information.
CityxGuide mirrors Backpage’s escort classified ads section by listing them according to each country, state, and city. Many of the ads are dressed up in fun emoijis and logos, fonts with words and phrases that advertise the poster’s most valuable attributes, assets, and offered services.
These pages show the contact information of the poster, including email and phone numbers, and full body hooker pics along with a list of measurements, ethnicity types, body types, hours of operation, and incall and outcall availability.
#15 - KinkyAds.org
Kinkyads.org is meant to be like backpage.com, but 'for kinksters by kinksters'. It's a good place to search for casual encounters if you want something more than just vanilla sex.
For escorts near you, try searching by city. Then narrow down your search even more by using the fetish categories. If you love feet fetishes, bondage, or ABF, then this is a great site to add to your bookmarks bar.

Backpage Alternatives For Sex Workers And Escorts
It's no secret that sex workers and escorts have been hurt hard by the backpage.com takedown. We can still rely on on-going clients, but finding new ones is a challenge without a reliable platform. We've all been scattered in every direction.
Some sites worth trying first are Switter, Tryst, and Slixa. Switter is the sex worker equivalent of twitter and the site I use the most instead of backpage. All the sex workers on twitter who have had their accounts banned and ghosted for no apparent reason, are now going to switter to advertise their services.
Like all things in sex work, experimentation is key. It might take a while to find a site that has the perfect clientele for you.
Backpage Replacements Going Forward
I used backpage.com for almost 5 years before it went down. The day it happened, I couldn't believe it. Everyday I was googling at least 10 times to find a good replacement for backpage, but never found anything that was quite a good match.
Backpage.com was a life saver for all of us. It's a place where you could go to meet some beautiful and gorgeous women, that would help you get through even your darkest times.
Leila was a 28 year old stunner from backpage.com, she was the most gorgeous woman I ever met, and had out-call rates of only $100 an hour. I met with her every week and she lifted me up and made life great again.
Backpage provided a priceless service, and while we'll miss it, it's good to know sites like Tryst.link and other backpage replacements will help us fill the void.
