****Update (5/17/19 10:05am)*****

PrivateDelights seems to be back online and running properly.  I do hope they have taken whatever steps are necessary to rectify the overall situation that led to this interruption in service.  A lot of Sex Workers need their sites to be running at all times for the sake of survival.

A lot of people have been searching the Internet for answers today as to why the website PrivateDelights has been offline.  Many have found their way to The ValleyScott Blog.

I don’t really have an answer as to what is going on.  I have gotten several different error messages when trying to access the site.

I don’t know if it is a maintenance issue, a technical problem, or trouble with their hosting service.  What I do know is that PrivateDelights wasn’t shut down by Federal Law Enforcement.  If LE had shut it down there would be one of those famous “This Site Has Been Seized” redirects.  LE likes to brag when they shut down one of our websites.

Whatever the issue is, hopefully PD will have it fixed soon.  Or at least get a temporary page up to tell us how long it will be.  Information helps to avoid panic and worry.

I would say this should be lesson to all sites to make sure that if you are having issues to get the word out quickly and broadly so that your users do not start to worry or speculate about what is going on.


PD posted this not heir site as an explanation:

Earlier they had a message up that they were down to upgrade their servers.  Two different stories tonight, which is true, I have no idea.  Maybe both.  I’m not going to judge, just going to keep updating this post as I know more.

  1. They are doing site maintenance, recently they’ve had a spike in visitors and the server couldn’t handle the load. They said it would be a few hours. I thought they were likely under dos attack. They’ve been off since about noon….
