Smith, who also goes by the names Ashley Price, Jessica Price and Sarah, advertises exclusively on Craigslist because it is free. It is also effective. Smith said she gets as many as 30 calls a day from a single ad. She said she has been in the sex trade for two years and earns between $10,000 and $30,000 a month.
Like the police, she also surfs Craigslist - but she does it to determine her fees. "Some women charge really high, other charge low. I try to charge in between," she said.
