Red Book was a site used to buy and sell sexual acts. MyRedBook.com was started in 1999 and came to a halt on June 25, 2014. The website now states that it has been seized by the FBI as part of an investigation by the FBI and IRS.
Red Book started in the San Francisco Bay area, but over its 15 years it expanded to southern and central California, Phoenix, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest. Red Book had three main components: classified ads either advertising services that were offered or desired, message boards featuring open discussions, and the reviews section. The reviews section was for VIP members that paid $13 a month. In this section, members could review the experiences with their sexual providers.
