You Can No Longer List ‘Prostitute’ on Your LinkedIn Profile

Pin it


Bad news for all those people looking to expand their professional network while simultaneously purchasing sexual favors: LinkedIn is cracking down on profiles that promote sexual services of any kind.

Which, of course, begs the question: who goes to LinkedIn to look for hookers?!

Apparently there are plenty of people promoting “escort service for hire” and “nude massage” on the networking site, and according to HuffPo, it’s possible to literally list “prostitution” as one of your skills, right there along with “Powerpoint” and “conversational Spanish.”

But again (and, apologies if I’m harping on this too much)…who are these people who used LinkedIn, perhaps the least sexy networking site of all time, to find prostitutes?! Haven’t they ever heard of Craigslist?
