    One thing I like about Lyla is that people can’t come on here and be unnecessarily ignorant to providers. The well known trans escort review board that I have been on for years is not the case, I’ve had multiple unnecessary comments sent privately and publicly on my appearance and things that have nothing to do with my service, and then theres people who have just written complete fabricated lies to garner attention to a post. Regardless of what the name is here, I just hope that type of ignorance will not be allowed. Quite honestly I’ve considered leaving the industry because of blatant transphobia from the same men who book trans providers. It’s toxic and on a personal note I’ve had to attend self esteem and self care therapy because some of it has effected me over the last two years. I have no problem with a respectful negative review about service if its genuine, but trying to tear people down to their lowest and drag them through mud should be unacceptable on any review board. Just my two cents.❤️

    Hey guys, We have some big news; Lyla is getting a name change to EscortReviews.ca. I anticipate that this name change might piss a few people off. After all, we pride ourselves on being a positive recommendation board, not a review board… so, how could this make any sense? 🤷‍♀️ This is where we’re going to be 100% transparent and honest with you, as we always try to be. We want more traffic. In order for us to be successful, we need more traffic to the site. When you look at the most common keywords that people Google to find sites like ours, they usually use terms such as “Canada escort reviews”, “escort reviews in Montreal” and so on. The term “recommendations” barely gets any hits. In order for us to carry on, we need to grow. It’s no secret that Lyla was a bit abandoned and many people stopped coming on here. We’re working really hard to change that, and so far the growth is positive, but we need more. Which is why this name change has come about. We are still going to be a positive board. Other than the name, nothing is changing. We will still only allow positive recommendations/reviews. The site will look the same, the people working behind the scenes remain the same, our mantra will stay the same. It’s just the name that is changing. Why not CERB? Canada Emergency Relief Benefit kinda ruined that for us (but we’re not bitter because what a godsend that was). When is this happening? Pretty soon. We wanted to tell you guys about it before officially changing anything, but now that we’ve announced it we’re expecting the change to happen in the next couple of weeks or so. Will I be redirected? Yes, anyone that lands on lyla.ch will be redirected to escortreviews.ca Any questions? As always, myself and the other Mods are here to answer any queries or concerns you may have. I hope you appreciate what we’re trying to do here and we ask for your continued support. 😘 Lots of love, Lydia ❤️

    You're right. But it stops fake ads or BS girls.

    I agree with most everyone here. All sides are very valid. However, I do believe that if you change the name, you will have a fight on your hands. I 100% support the idea of changing around Lyla to be more SP friendly. Were already labeled as a feminist site... why don't we keep it that way. I had messaged Lydia about a verified client badge, making it easier for us SPs to screen. The client would have to have 3 girls (verified on more than 1 site) vouche for him... like @PiperNorth did for me. As always, you can screen however you choose. But it would help. Bring back the status bar for our own main page. Go through all the forums and take out the word "review" anywhere it is... maybe make the new name CERF(Canadian Escort Recommended Forum)

    Looking back before I got married I was with a friend who was in his early 30's and I was early to mid 20's we decided to go bar hoping in Montreal and ended up alone at a hotel for the night because we didn't pick up any girls. The next morning (Sunday) he buys the Montreal news paper and finds some ladies offering massages nearby, called to book and we showed up. I didn't know what to expect at all so I'm directed to a shower and told to go into another room afterward, simply a mattress on the floor, I lay face down with towel over my ass and wait. The lady which was not chosen by me came in and soon removed the towel and asked what I wanted. So I asked what type of massage was offered she didn't care about that she offered everything from HJ to BJ to FS, I opted for the HJ only and never finished even though she let me fondle her boobs. Things were weird for me. Fast forward to after my marriage, when the old lady lost all appetite for sex, we used to do it all the time sometime 3x a day but she lost her libido, not me. After 4 years of getting only a few times a year 2-3 as a matter of fact, I looked at Craigslist and found a gorgeous black lady who was offering her services and to be honest it probably took me 8-9 months to decide on calling her. Everything was done safely with protection but I was so nervous after I went and got tested about 3 months later and all was clear. I know it was just fear of cheating on my wife and so on, the fear disappeared and about 6 months later I found a wonderful lady from Cerb and visited her for over 6 months. The rest was history. So when I was in my 20's, I really thought "this is too expensive to have some fun, when I can get this for free". And now it's "this is what's going to save my marriage because I need physical contact".

    I am fine with the name change, though that is the 3rd one now in the 14 years I've been on here! If it brings more traffic, then there is nothing wrong with that.

    For me i was always sex worker positive, maybe that comes from being European and seeing way more of this kind of life in the cities of Europe. I love following fellow workers on a lot of platforms and cheering on the ones pushing for positive change in our industry!

    Interesting question. Skipping early associations from the media. My first interaction was on vacation in Hawaii, as a 15 year old. I had fallen behind my group of friends and was approached by an ‘older‘ woman (Lol probably 20). She asked me if i ‘wanted a date’ my reaction was confusion. She said ‘never mind, i don't want to scare you ‘ only later i figured out what she meant. later, at 21, in a sporty car in DC, a woman about my age pulled up with similar pitch. I said sure, she drove to a dark parking lot... I chickened out... too many risk images In my mind i suppose. so i guess my first impressions were confusion, then intrigue, a bit of fear... finally interest. -cbs Of what I thought of those women themselves? Not sure... i was more focused on my own Risk/reward calculation at the time. Only later as i started to get comfortable, did i start to form opinions i was aware of.

    Hi RG, Thanks for your comments and suggestions - helpful as always! 🙂 Yes the town council is still around and thank goodness they are, they're so valuable to me! Mods won't be going anywhere either and I love the idea of a banner to reinforce our mantra. I also wanted to point out to everyone that we have recently changed our verification process off the back of your feedback. The new process can be found on our FAQs but I've pasted it below also. - Send 3 photos of yourself (from your registered Lyla email address) in 3 different poses to [email protected] - The photos must include a sign which must include 'today's' date - The sign must include your username on Lyla - The photos must not be edited in any way - The sign should also include either the word LeoList (if you are also verified on there), or VIPFavours (if verified on VIPFavours), or Lyla (if you aren't verified on either one). We will then review what you have sent to us, and will get back in touch to let you know the outcome. Thanks

    Hi everyone. I apologise for the delayed response, I just wanted to read through everyone's feedback and reflect on everything. First of all I want to say thank you for taking the time to provide these comments - your opinions mean a lot to us so please keep them coming. A few points to address here and I apologise in advance if anything got missed. A few people mentioned we need to work on our SEO strategy and I want to reassure you that we are doing this - we aren't expecting just a domain change to bring a flood of traffic, there are other technical things we are working on so watch this space! Thank you Stephanie Mystique for your suggestion on using Leolist to get traffic - I'm not sure many people realise that they can link their Lyla recommendations to their ads on there so I'll do more to spread the word! Sarahalexxx made a great suggestion about having a verified Client badge but after discussing this with the team we've decided not to go down this route for now just in case something went wrong, however we know it has a tonne of benefits so we are thinking of ways to make this as safe as possible so we can introduce it here. If anyone has any input/ideas on how we can do this please let me know. PiperNorth - you mentioned that you're concerned that Lyla will end up having the same toxicity of other boards. I've been on some other Canadian boards and the misogyny and lack of respect is nauseating. This board will NEVER allow that kind of behaviour. I always say that this community unfortunately has to face a lot of stigma and negativity as it is, our job is to fight against that, not contribute to it. I promise you, our mantra will not change. Reviews will not be sleazy, misogynistic or negative, DNRs will still be respected. It simply won't get through moderation and if people don't like that then they aren't welcome here. I also completely agree with putting Providers first - this is something we will always strive to do and if anyone has any ideas on how we improve please let me know, my inbox is always open. Kylie Karma - I am so sorry that you have faced transphobia - that kind of ignorance sickens me to the core and it will never be tolerated here. Maybe one thing we can do as a brand is take more of a stand against this and raise awareness on the issues that trans Providers face. Your ideas on how we can best do this would be very welcomed. I hope this answers some questions but do keep your feedback coming - we rely on your input to make this site the best it can be, and we will endeavour to ask for input from sex workers more in the future, you guys come first after all. Thank you ❤️

    As a sex worker, I wholly disagree with changing the URL. This will cultivate the same toxic review culture that exists on other review boards (not that it nearly doesn't anyway). Some providers rely on reviews. Some providers encourage reviews. Others, like myself, prefer to be left out of reviews (recommendations, if that word makes you feel better) because that's not how I focus on building my business. This was a place I felt I could do some light advertising but will feel deterred from doing so once the change is made - I do not want to be associated with the toxic, client-centred culture that will inevitably be created/expanded upon, nor do I want to welcome reviews left without my consent, which often happens on other review boards (and I'm sure sometimes here). As Malika asked a few posts above me, did ANYONE check in with sex workers who use this forum at all prior to announcing this decision? Was there any discussion, panel, vote, anything? I'd be curious to know if this would actually fly with majority of the providers registered/relatively active here. Edited to add: If you're looking to change things up and get more traffic, why not offer something here that other review boards with more traffic (MERB, TERB, PERB) don't offer, namely for the providers who use them? There are sections available on those sites for other cities already. What I despise about those sites is that they're client-centred. Why not make this site provider-centred? The more you provide a safe and healthy space for us, the more we're going to send our clients here and link you on our sites.

    A lot of the URLs you're visiting at lyla.ch and other sites are already pretty compromising if anyone bothers to look. "Lyla" won't fool anyone. Anyone who cares about this needs to learn about private browser windows, VPNs, etc.

    Thanks so much for your support, Jessica. We are really prioritising our SEO strategy so watch this space - we aim to be the number 1 board in Canada! 😍 Any feedback or ideas to improve are always welcome, especially from someone so savvy with marketing.

    its most important that we are all supportive of each others choices at this time and any time to be honest! we dont know the situations each provider lives in and what pressures are on her or not as the case may be... so long as the risks are understood by each person that is helpful and i know as a professional each person i have spoken too was already super careful about cleanliness and now its even better!

    I'm curious to know from a Provider and Client point of view, were your views on this industry different before you got involved in it? For me, I have always been pro sex work. The concept of policing what a person chooses to do with their body is an absurd one to me - that goes for more than just sex work IMO. But one thing I wasn't aware of within the industry is how tight knit the community is. The solidarity that fellow sex workers show each other is so empowering, especially in a world where women are often pitched against each other. I seldom see any of that kind of behaviour going on (I'm sure it happens, but it's certainly not as rife as some might expect). So, tell me, have your views changed? Did you once look at sex work in a different light and if so, what changed your mind?

    This has been in discussion on another thread about changes to the site but as Phaedrus mention maybe it should have a thread by itself and I agree. So here is my take on this, we are aware that in the SP section there are things that any clients can't see so why not have the ladies post a recommendation for us clients. Of course this would have to be discussed with the client himself as we should ask any SP about posting a recommendation about her. Any client could have the choice of DNR same as the ladies have about themselves.

    Right...and just because he may have been a good client to her doesnt mean he will be a good client to me Word of mouth doesnt always work for me

    Thanks for kicking off the thread, Notch! I think the big problem with this is that a lot of providers will simply not be prepared to outsource their screening to a board. If someone comes along saying, "Hey, I'm verified by Lyla!", then the reply is likely to be... not to their liking, because they'll still have to provide deposits/references/whatever else. And everyone's going to be unhappy about this as a result; the client will be unhappy because their prized 'verification' is effectively worthless, and the provider will be unhappy because they've had yet another entitled person who thinks the rules about screening don't apply to them because they're special.

    If you do entertain out of province people right now are you comfortable in the fact that for contact tracing in the event of an outbreak you will be passing on a lot of personal information to the health authority?? i am not... along side limited availability and staying with people i trust and can verify this is a tough time to do business in any field... its better to be safe than sorry though and this thread is great food for thought, i love seeing all the responses it helps guide us all to do better and to stay safer

    True, but the new name is a flashing neon sign attracting those that wouldn’t normally be looking. When I was in IT I was pretty lax when it came to corporate browsing, but there are some sites that you just can’t ignore while parsing the logs. Everyone has their own risk level. Sure I can start up a vpn or private window. Or I can choose to avoid sites that make it absolutely mandatory to make that effort. So no more checking in everyday for the hell of it. Maybe once a week if I absolutely need something. The new name is supposed to bring in more traffic, but might have a side effect of reducing participation, which lowers the value of the content. I know I’ll be seeing a lot less ads as a result of the change.

    I think this is great news if it can help direct traffic with search engines. Name alone doesn't do it though, so make sure there are proper keywords, and other SEO function within the site to help more. But this is a great start.
