Sign o' the times

Craig Newmark, the founder of Craigslist on the Casual Encounters section...
“Casual Encounters was created in response to user demand for a section that allowed for a wide range of personal meeting and relationship options, in that sense, it’s probably an accurate inside look at how people like to connect these days. Our users like the ability to be both candid and, initially, anonymous.” - says Craig Newmark (before the recent murders took place). 

Tales of sexual encounters via Craigslist run the gamut from the erotic to the bizarre. Nola, a 42-year-old saleswoman who lives in Manhattan, posts elegantly written ads seeking a man who will meet her in a public place so she can go to the bathroom and remove her panties, which she will then hand to him in an envelope. Nola, for instance, said that she got an erotic thrill from giving men her used underwear, knowing they would serve as fetish objects. She started doing this last June after she thought, “I wear underpants every single day of my life, and somebody’s got to want these underpants.” The recipients, she said, pay her a small replacement fee.
