MissTravel.com Labeled As No. 1 Prosti-Travel Site

THE DAILY BEAST - May 11 - MissTravel.com links ‘generous’ men with pretty women who wish to travel the world for free. Since its launch three weeks ago, the site has accumulated ~40K users, as well as a wealth of controversy. Gawker labeled it “the #1 prosti-travel website,” alleging it’s no more than a front for prostitution, while sites like Jezebel have questioned the safety in traveling to the other side of the world with a complete stranger. “There’s a big difference between running a dating site and being a pimp,” says MissTravel.com's founder Brandon Wade. “I don’t make money from the money that the women get from the Sugar Daddies, nor am I promoting prostitution in any way. I’d like to think of myself as a telecommunications service provider more than enabling a specific lifestyle.” Regarding the safety issues, the site relies on member feedback for vetting potential psychos, and will, according to Wade, introduce a background check/criminal history option over the next month for a fee.
