Despite the rise of social-networking sites, where meetings to exchange sex for cash can be arranged out of the public eye, old-fashioned sidewalk solicitation is still strong in Escondido.
Craig Carter said. Most of street-level prostitution in the city takes place in an area downtown referred to as The Square, bordered by Mission Avenue to the north, Washington Avenue to the south, Quince Street to the west and Broadway to the east.
The average age of prostitutes has gotten lower during the past 10 to 15 years, posing a concern for law enforcement, Carter said. Though the number of transactions taking place tends to ebb and flow, over time it has remained constant in Escondido, Carter said. Oceanside police Lt. Joseph Young said patrol officers monitor prostitution each day in the downtown corridor. He said officers are finding both female and male-to-female transsexual prostitutes on the street and are seeking customers via Web sites such as MySpace or Craigslist.
