The Purple Paradise Club's Classifieds System has been shut down

Dear Members,

It is with great sadness that I regretfully announce that I have shut down our club's classified advertising system.

I was forced to make this decision for the club due to our original business idea of bringing working transsexuals together with their male admirers to party at our member nightclub not working out in the way we hoped it might.  We had plenty of paying male customers but we could not attract enough transsexuals. Unfortunately we have not been able to build a viable business out of our concept idea and the classifieds section of our website is therefore not viable from a business stand point and is costing us money and time with negative returns at high risk to the club and to myself personally.

The club was willing to continue running the classifieds section despite of all this as it's the most popular section on the clubs website but we have unfortunately ran into problems with the Australian Government. A seniour compliance officer from The Justice Department of the Victorian State Government contacted us on Friday to advise us that a number of our transsexual advertisers are in breach of the Sex Work Act 1994 (the Act) and the Sex Work Regulations 2006 (the Regulations).

Unfortunately the club cannot afford any situation that brings us into contact with the legal system and the risk of maintaining the free classifieds greatly outweighs any returns we have made in the business of bringing working transsexuals together with their male admirers to party. Personally i'm willing to fight for my beliefs and to go to jail for them but this didn't seem a fight that was worth it given the failure of our concept. In life one must know when to hold em and when to fold em and especially what battles to pick.

Our understanding is the shut down of Backpage resulted in many transsexuals losing their only viable income stream and it has caused many problems in these peoples lives some of whom are our own members which greatly saddens us. We expect that the shut down of our own classifieds section will result in disruption to our member transsexuals income streams and once again they will be forced to move over to yet another classifieds site in order to survive due to regulations we believe are outdated and greatly unjust. 

As a law abiding organisation we have always set out to comply with the local acts and regulations even given we believe they're outdated and greatly unjust and we will do so in this case.

I made my personal views of what needs to be done in Melbourne to fix the situation in the video at the link below which I made a while ago.

Essentially what I would like to see in Victoria to improve things is:

1. A bar, pub or nightclub may sell alcohol and sex on the premises is permitted.
2. A bar, pub or nightclub may employ prostitutes as either full time workers or as contractors for the purposes of providing sex on the premises.
3. Prostitution to be recognised as a skilled occupation and accorded all the rights and responsibilities of a skilled occupation.
4. Due to the increased power of western women, the rise in institutionalised feminism and corresponding low supply of suitable sex partners for Australian men - a prostitution VISA to be introduced which enables sex workers from South East Asia - in particular Thailand, The Philippines and Vietnam to legally work in Victoria as sex workers.
5. A bar, pub or nightclub may employ Asian prostitutes who are in Australia on a skilled prostitution VISA for the purposes of providing sex on the premises.
6. Prostitution may operate legally in commercial areas of the city wherever alcohol is sold.

Whilst governments may have won this fight they have already lost the war when it comes to local compliance of unjust laws long term even if they don't recognise this important fact yet. Our understanding is that a worldwide blockchain based adult classifieds system that uses cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin is currently under development that works in a decentralized manner and cannot be shut down by any government due to what happened with Backpage. 

Sun Tzu: “Every battle is won before it's ever fought.”

The problem with centralised systems is the government can simply raid the companys office, arrest it's CEO and shut down the system. It would only be a matter of time before that happened to us and really - who wants to deal with that shit?

Governments can't shut down decentralised systems as there is no office to raid, no CEO to arrest and nothing to shut down in a central location. That's why decentralised systems are the future of technology whether governments like that situation or not and technologists like myself are actively working in this area to make sure decentralization, privacy and freedom is the default for the world and it's people.

We are watching this space very closely and are interested to see how this goes and how regulators and law makers respond globally. We will keep our valued members up to date with what happens in this space and will recommend a decentralised adult classifieds advertising system when it becomes available.

It is our hope that the western world can move on from a highly legislative rule based "you must not" type approach to sex work which if we look at the realities of human behaviour is not doing anyone any favours.  I write this from Pattaya, Thailand where I am on holiday for the next month.  It's amazing the freedom available to us western men and the acceptance available to the ladyboys in this city.  It just feels so very, very different to Melbourne.

As CEO of the club I apologise to each of you our valued members for the disruption my decision will cause you.

Best Wishes and Kind Regards,
Jarod
CEO Purple Paradise Club


Expectations for our opening night Trans Tuesday @ Platform One

Club Members,

Let’s talk about expectations for Trans Tuesday - our first members night @ Platform One on Tuesday October 3rd at 8:30 pm.

It’s only one week to go before the night. So far we have 10 transsexuals and 15 men confirmed as attending. The gathering will be intimate. Platform One will be cordoning off a section of the club especially for our needs and keeping the music to a level where we will still be able to talk and get to know each other without having to shout. The music will be a mix of dance and trance favorites to appeal to the diverse age range of members confirmed as attending. Security will be present on the door. If you have not yet paid for your ticket you will be able to pay in cash on the night.

A small, intimate gathering gives each member the opportunity to mingle and get to know one another.

Remember that this is the first get together of members. Future events will be possible and be limited only by your imaginations and what kind of events you want us to arrange for you our valued members!

The main goal of the night is for the clubs male members to meet and get to know a bit about each other, socialise with the clubs transsexual members and if the feelings right arrange an intimate liaison ;-)

As this is the first member meetup we hope it all goes really well and everyone has a great time!

We're always looking for ways to improve the clubs services as remember the club exists for your benefit as members so after the night if there is anything you have in mind for future events please do let us know.

We look forward to meeting you all on the night!

Kind Regards,

Jarod

Discussions have been held with a nightclub owner for our first night!

Discussions have been held with a nightclub owner in the Melbourne CBD. The deal we have negotiated is for a regular, once a month Tuesday trans night running from 8:30 pm to 1:00 am with the venue hired out exclusively for members of The Purple Paradise Club. We'll make an announcement shortly advising members of the nightclub name and exact CBD location.

The nightclub has been carefully chosen due to it's high quality, highly experienced management, well trained staff and perfect location. It's situated right next door to a short time 'sex on premises' venue which is open 24 hour hour a day, 365 days a year and has 30 private lockable rooms which are perfect for our members intimate encounters. The idea is for you to socialise, party, get to know the ladyboys present on the night and then if you make a deal simply pop right next door where a room will be available for you. The premises also has a spa, steam room, sauna, free internet and WI-FI, a large cinema room and a funky cafe!

Just so we're all on the same page with this - Melbourne has almost no suitable Thailand style 'short time hotels' that are appropriate for our members activities. The only place we were able to find with open minded management markets its services towards the male gay and bisexual communities. Please be respectful and courteous to our gay and bisexual friends who may be present at the venue when you visit with your trans partner.

Discussions will be held shortly with the venues management to make a deal for venue entry and private room hire fees exclusively for our members.

Our Video Sharing (YouTube clone) site is now live!

We're pleased to announce that our video sharing site is now online. Our signature production technique will be creating high quality content of our nights which puts our transgender clients in the spotlight whilst preserving the privacy of our male clients. More info about this to come shortly.

By implementing our own video site we completely eliminate being dependent upon YouTube which has demonstrated they will put their large, corporate, buttoned down, politically correct advertisers first and demonitize content deemed "not advertiser friendly". Our content and our advertisers will almost certainly be deemed too controversial for YouTube so right from the start it's best we have our own systems in place to empower our valued business advertisers and business clients.

We're looking forward to creating lots of quality content for our members and delivering exceptional opportunities for our advertisers!

Our discussion forums are now live!

We're pleased to announce that our discussion forums are now live.

The Purple Paradise Club has created a discussion forum for you - our valued members where you can build relationships and get to know each other, find out more about what each other wants and post new discussions of interest and importance to the trans community. This is something really useful that you simply wont find on Backpage and the best part is it’s FREE! Click here: Purple Discussion Forums

Sign up and connect with each other today!

Our nights are coming soon

We need to hold some further discussion with the owner of our first choice of venue for our trans nights to make sure everything is in place, signed off and ready to go with his venue and the venue next door which has the short time rooms. He is overseas on holiday at the moment and will be back in the country in a few weeks time. During this time we're refining our back end IT systems getting everything ready for ticket sales and working to get other things fined tuned.

Please be patient with us whilst we get everything organised.

Why not take this chance to become a member of the forums and tell us more about what you would like on the nights?

We have a night!

We're proud to announce that we have partnered with Platform One Nightclub @ 8 Banana Alley Flinders St, Melbourne to bring you our first exclusive, private, members only transsexual party nights!

If the night is successful future trans nights will be held at Platform One once a month on a Tuesday night. Sign up to The Purple Paradise Club today (you will be invited to buy tickets soon). Come along to the opening night on Tuesday October 3rd 2017. Tickets will be on sale shortly exclusively from this website.

Expectations for our opening night Trans Tuesday @ Platform One

Just a quick update in regards to expectations for our opening night Trans Tuesday @ Platform One on Tuesday 3rd October 2017:

The Purple Paradise Club has been actively marketing towards both males and transsexuals and advertising what we're about for the last few months on backpage.com.au under the Melbourne Transsexual Escorts section. Since our ads started to run in April we have had over 227 men and 23 transsexuals sign up as members to the club. The results indicate that there is very strong demand from men for a transsexual party night in Melbourne. Thank you so much to each of you who have become members - we very much appreciate you supporting this new concept!

Now - It has been easy to gain male members but gaining transgender members has been much more challenging. As you can see from our membership numbers the ratio of male to trans is over 10-1. Perry and I have thought about the issue and are putting together some more advertisements with the goal to attract more trans members to the club and party concept. We hope that our efforts once complete will attract more trans members. If you're a male please do encourage the transsexuals you see in person from backpage to sign up and become members of the club and ask them to get their free tickets to opening night. Guide them through the process on their smart phones when you're with them if need be. It really is in their best self-interest to support the club and come along to opening night where they will meet more Melbourne men under the one roof that are interested in their intimate services than anywhere else in Melbourne. Remind them that the success of the night really does depend a lot on a good ratio of male to trans members.

Perry and I would like to emphasise that the goal of the club and night is to bring transsexuals and their male admirers together to party and make it easier for members to meet and do business with each other. There is no central act, band or other distractions on the night - just great music we all love that will be played by a DJ in the background. The goal of the night is for members to interact with, dance, mingle and get to know each other.

Please do keep firmly in mind that this is a new concept, a new venture with high risks. We have the best of intentions to have a great party night but if we cannot attract enough transsexuals to the party then let's use the night as an opportunity to connect with each other as men as equals. Imagine what kind of ideas we could come up with for future events if we work together. There is great power in bringing all of us together in this manner.

We thank each of you for supporting Trans Tuesday @ Platform One and we look forward to meeting you all on opening night!

Thank You!

Trans Tuesday Opening Night

On behalf of Perry, myself and the staff and management of Platform One we would like to say a big thank you to each of you who attended Trans Tuesday @ Platform One last night. We very much appreciated the opportunity to meet and party with you! Thank you for being patient with us as we got things started and worked everything out for the first time and for all the great ideas and suggestions several of you gave us to help us build the night up for future trans events. Our first gathering was intimate and well received and it gave us the opportunity to meet, develop a connection and get to know each other. One of the great quotes of the night from one guest was from the movie Field of Dreams “Build it and they will come”. I was amazed to hear that because Perry had originally suggested it for some of our marketing! We have taken careful note of all your great ideas and suggestions and we look forward to implementing them at future events. We hope to see all of you again at our next event!
