    There seems to be nothing but personal, petty bickering in the comments here. I imagine it’s probably pretty difficult for anyone trying to use this site to discern what sort of help the Cupcake Girls can provide. I can count four people I know closely and personally who have sought help from the organization. They were all treated with great respect and very pleased with the outcome. It was matters ranging from legal assistance to financial planning to actual monetary help. In one case I visited the office with a friend seeking help and saw first hand the respect and diligence they applied to the situation. I will be donating money to them in the future and greatly appreciate the service they have provided to people I care about. I can’t speak for situations I don’t have direct knowledge of, but the task of helping sex workers is a delicate one. I would refer anyone needing help to them and trust them implicitly to help effectively. Sorry to anyone who had a bad experience, I’m sure there were many factors involved. Try not to dissuade people from seeking help that I know they would absolutely receive with no strings attached. Cheers.

      Hi Kevin thats quite the review so I have a few questions for you : Who exactly are you, dude that all these different sexworkers 1) come to you for help and 2) tell you the outcome of their interaction with the Cupcake Girls ? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW !

      Your review is like so suspect it sets off warning bells in the mind of any reasonable person. You are completely oblivious to all the negative feedback on this and other sites. Keep donating money to them, Joy Hoover will need all the extra change you can spare for her high-powered defense attorney to handle those fraud and racketeering charges….

        How would you like me to go about addressing your questions without opening up a can of worms that reveals my friend’s identities and to a lesser extent my own on a public forum?

        1. Sally Anne ( User Karma: -1 ) says:

          Kevin, you missed the point she was trying to make which is what I myself am wondering : How can we know for sure you are a real person and not one of the Cupcake Girls themselves or an operative of theirs ?

          The solutions rather simple : My social media profile is attached to all my comments on this forum. Why not post yours ? It doesn’t have to have a surname, just something to lead us to believe “Kevin” is a real dude, and your not Joy Hoover herself…in ‘cyber drag’

          Ask around the online sexworker community and they mostly all know who Sally Anne …..aka “paperless me” is.

          Who are YOU is the question begging and until you give us a better idea, your review aint worth the time it took you to write it…

    As a clinician, I have been appalled at the Cupcake Girls outting of their clients on Facebook and other social media. When I confronted them about a video one of their clients did but Cupcakes promoted as one of their clients, I was met with “well this client signed a release.”

    No client should be associated with ANY organization per ethical rules of confidentiality. A release should NEVER be used as a means to promote any organization. Confidentiality concerns relationships. If you piggy back off the back of a victim, you have broken ethical boundaries of confidentiality. The client can out themselves but we NEVER out a client. This is an inappropriate use of a release but Cupcakes seemed to think it was OK. Go back to grad school if you need further explanation on this.

      Agreed. You’ll notice ONLY testimonials that are put online by http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com are audio interviews where they do not give out their real names, nor identify where they live or work in any fashion that would allow you to find them.

      It doesn’t matter what they say, or offer, we don’t put video or photographic interviews or testimonials up of our members online. The reasons are simple – we’ve seen too often how one can become victimized this way through blackmail, stalking, inability to rent housing, locate employment, etc.

      There’s no point to it either. When we were trying to prove trafficking was real THEN it was important to put real people on talk show stages so people could see this was real and people were telling the truth.

      Even then we did not use real names. But the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed already – meaning there is absolutely no point to such a practice now unless one is trying to raise money – period.

      However, if the intent is for that person to leave sex work than any photos of them online are harmful. Even by the government. Graduates of the WIN program in Las Vegas for example are forced to put their photos online and in the Review Journal. I hear from those woman that YEARS down the road from those photos – they are having trouble with housing, work, relationships, etc. But the WIN program does that to obtain grant money and could care less who they harm.

      We advise all members of SWA not only to not post their photos online as members, but not even to identify on their own social media, for that reason of any self-identification of having been in the sex industry in any way can have serious consequences years down the road.

      My name is Sally Anne & Ive probably been one of *thee* most vocal opponent of this org, certainly in Vegas. I would appreciate the opportunity to make contact with the writer of the above review.

        Your voice has no impact in this community since you are nothing more than a hater. Stalker. Since you harass people and you never proof yourself.
        Just another scam trying to hurt The Cupcakes Org.

          As someone who has been the feature of numerous articles by well-respected journalists in established media outlets, Sally Anne is most definitely a real person.

          She also supports herself via sexwork by virtue of necessity and doesnt beg online with 15 different fundraisers circulating at once.

          She speaks out against Cupcake Girls the way YOU did against 8 minutes and you are still crying about it on social media. Yet you come on this site….why to stalk Sally ?

        2. Anonymous says:

          That’s a joke “Kamylla” since I know “Sally” to be a sex worker. You however, I’ve caught your voice calling our hotline impersonating more than one person at a time with us thinking we can’t tell your voice from another because of your accent. I say “you” loosely because when “8 Minutes” first went down, the woman who called us the first time said she was from Brazil and had a Brazilian accent. This woman was also just fine with us and asked us to help her.

          However, when hateful lying comments started being posted online about us supposedly from her – we called her and spoke to her in her voice and she denied making this comments. She said she (1) had no computer, and (2) had no internet access, so it wasn’t her. She did state however she had signed an agreement authorizing Domina Elle (another fake name by the way), to post online as her to help with the fund raising – but that she never authorized her to say those things about us. I have it on tape by the way in her real voice that she was “going to call Domina Elle the next morning to have the comments taken down”.

          But they weren’t taken down the next day because she got threatened with having her fund raiser abandoned and her legal representation yanked if she didn’t basically “sit down and shut up” to what went down next. So clearly we’ve got some “catfishing” going on with “Kamylla”.

          From there, a woman with an Asian accent was then making youtube videos with Maxine Doogan and claiming to be “Kamylla”. Not the voice of the person who first called us. A voice that I recognized from a woman who kept trying to lie her way into our local meetings, and also trying to scam us out of the names of attorney’s who donate their services to our members. A voice that also smeared Katherine Griffin-Thomas claiming she had “been enrolled in her program” and saying terrible things about her also.

          However, during the time frame that this Kamylla (whoever she was in reality) was claiming to be in Katherine’s program – Katherine wasn’t operating a program of that kind. I verified this through checking not only with Katherine, but in case she was lying I checked with the local authorities who confirmed it also. Interestingly, it was during that process that a cross-reference was doing which revealed there was no case like the one Kamylla described currently in the Houston legal system.

          In fact, I was offered a copy of the Houston Vice Dept.’s arrest schedule for the previous year, and a copy of their budget to prove to me that no arrest that she described ever went down. Further, that the Houston Jail doesn’t let out anyone on bail who is not American – they’re held in custody until the sentencing as a matter of regular procedure. As for her rent, because of the flooding no landlord was allowed to evict any tenants for non-payment of rent because it’s illegal to ask rent on an uninhabitable unit.

          Our offers to provide free legal assistance, and a job for both Kamylla, and her husband, which would not only have paid $20 an hour working with other ex-sex workers, but also would have met her requirements to keep her visa were refused while SWOP and Cupcake Girls insisted on handling her case. Yet supposedly she’s still in sex work despite expressing a desire to leave. Yet she was supposedly threatened with not receiving the $10,000 if she spoke to us, or accepted any help from us. Interesting way to help a sex worker don’t you think?

          I then received a very distressed message from the woman I originally spoke to as the “real” Kamylla after the Heather shooting with Neal Falls. She claimed that the lawyers that she was given by both the producers and by the Cupcake Girls almost got her thrown out of the country and back in jail again and she expressed regret she hadn’t let our attorney’s help her instead. We had warned her the attorney’s offered were not her attorney’s – but those of those other companies who would not have her best interests in mind. Further, she said the fund raisers had been used for drugs, and that Heather had been handed a large sum of cash with no oversight as to what mental condition she might be in after such a horrific incident whatever the story with that case was. Supposedly that Heather had overdosed and was in a hospital with this woman fearing she might be dead. Of course I take that whole story with a grain of salt because she then offered to go to the press with the “whole story” about “8 Minutes” and the “real story behind Heather” if she received cash wired to her that evening. Go on and sue me for defamation as I have the proof of these statements to back me up Domina Elle.

          I will say however I have found it interesting that it’s been claimed “no rescue group tried to help Heather” which is not true. Local members of SWA had tried to reach her through the local police, and media, as well as I asked messages to be relayed to her through social media – all offering her work, housing, free counseling, and support from other sex workers who have been in the same situation. None of which of our messages were relayed. Which is fine if not that there was the denial they were ever offered. We also have documentation of these offers made – but refused and denied.

          It’s also strange don’t you think that Neal Falls has had no female come forward with any claims of violence in his past, there is no DNA evidence tying him to any prostitute’s murder, there were no souvenirs from any murder found in his car where he was living supposedly, no receipts have come forward to prove any of the tools found in the car were his, no cell phone records have been provided to verify the story about why he was there, and Heather supposedly ran to a neighbor’s to call for help rather than calling from the house? Meaning she was outside and could have placed anything into the car that was found. There has also been no evidence released proving the gun was even his at the time of the incident. I’m only bringing that up because the person who was claiming to be “Kamyalla” who contacted me did bring up those interesting points to me about there being more to the story.

          Especially when I had just started a campaign a month prior to let people know that Peter Todd had murdered Jessie Foster, and two other Las Vegas prostitutes, and the police were letting him continue to pimp as long as he worked as an informant for them – making him a threat to other women. Four other women I’ve had to smuggle into Canada to get away from his reach because the cops won’t let anyone prosecute him for that same reason for his abuse. Meaning shortly after I set up http://www.pimpalert. there’s national media attributing Jessie’s death, and these two other women, to Neal rather than Peter with NO DNA, no physical evidence, nothing tying him to these women, and almost all of his tickets were for traffic violations? Name me one serial killer of prostitutes who lives in his car and keeps no trophies please.

          We have also been contacted by a woman who supposedly worked very closely with Joy Hoover. She claims all of that was for illegal money laundering and she never saw one single sex worker helped. This woman said she also stood by and watched as Joy falsely claimed to the Nevada legislature that “strippers were being denied jobs because of their past prostitution records” to get the law passed she did. A useless law by the way because if you could “prove trafficking” – you wouldn’t have a conviction in the first place. Also, there are lists that many human resources departments and temp agencies in Nevada have of companies who do hire with a prostitution conviction, and many with even a felony conviction. She says that Joy did many of these fund raisers to skim money for herself and also to launder money. She’s debating if she wants to give an audio interview about everything she saw. I will keep you posted if she does – but she did tell us it was okay to repeat what she told us about why people are bailing on the Cupcake Girls.

          I knew they’d fall apart once Charlie Sheen came clean about his HIV status. He admitted he had “spent $10 million to keep his secret” and that money has to come from somewhere with the way you have to report anything over $2500 these days. Charlie Sheen did those concerts with Live Nation he signed in in 2011 – the same year the Cupcake Girls was born. Live Nation’s lobbyist is the same lobbyist that promoted Cupcake Girls all over Nevada to make it appear they gave more services than http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com while in fact denying sex workers the services we offered.

          Why? Look a little deeper because another group their lobbyist is paid by is the Nevada Defense Attorney’s Association. Guess what that means? Since 1996, SWA has been providing free legal services to sex workers. That’s money out of their pocket. You don’t need a defense attorney with a retainer of $1500 and up when all you need to do is stand up and say “your honor may I please attend Sex Workers Anonymous meetings instead of jail?” To which the judge says yes. If you’re in jail – we can get you out and into our program without hiring an attorney. We have also expunged records, and helped sex workers get work permits to work at many local hotels, casinos, restaurants, marketing companies, etc., despite their criminal records through attorney’s who work through us and paralegals. Now do you think the Nevada Defense Attorney’s are happy about that money out of their pockets? Do the math.

          As for Sally, she may be a sex worker but she contacted us asking for a “fund raiser” so she could leave sex work. When we asked why – she said it was because she “had no ID”. We have personally helped at least 10 women without birth certificates obtain ID in Nevada alone (plus other states). We assured Sally we could walk her down to DMV with other records such as health records, school records, or even her immunization records of when she entered the country to obtain a NV ID card. She refused. She kept asking us to make her a fake ID. We asked why when we could easily get her a real one and kept asking her for the records anyone could obtain so that they could. She kept refusing to provide even the papers that are kept on file when you enter this country that can easily be obtained – and those can be used to get an ID card. So can school records, insurance papers, health records, even shot records, can be used to obtain an ID card in Nevada.

          We told her of a job within walking distance that would pay her $25 that loved hiring ex-sex workers doing marketing for casinos and hotels – and she refused to even consider it. But she did hook up with a trafficking rescue in Atlanta that is currently soliciting money for her. Even if this fund raiser hands her $5000 – what’s that good for? One month? Then what? If she won’t accept help to get an ID or even talk about jobs that up starting of $25 – then she’s not interested in leaving sex work. Meaning if she’s an active sex worker – why are people handing her money? I’m supposed to hand money to an active sex worker? That makes me a sucker – not someone helping.

          The Cupcake Girls claims they offer all kinds of services that are actually offered to “indigents” through Chase Bank. I doubt strippers would qualify as “indigent”. This connection to Chase was made by the CFO they hired who was also the head of Congo Justice, as well as the head of the Las Vegas Nigerian Association in 2013. He is no longer head of the LV Nigerian Association because he ran off with some money and almost cost them their 501c3 status after skipping with over $20,000 of their money according to them. This man also took grant money to organize the Southern Nevada Sex Trafficking Task Force’s meeting in October. A task force whose goal is to arrest sex workers by the way if you read the Review Journal about what they’ve done in the last year. They don’t “help” sex workers – they arrest them. Which is what we’ve been saying all along – the Cupcake Girls have been used to gather information for law enforcement purposes. They offer no confidentiality to anyone they speak to – however http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com has refused to incorporate so that they can’t be audited by the government or law enforcement number one. They’ve also rebuked warrants, subpena’s and cash offers to become informants to law enforcement on their members. Something currently both Cupcake Girls, SWOP and this website are not equipped to do.

          When we rebuked all attempts, including blocking hackers, from getting access to our member information for http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com – interestingly the site at http://www.sexworkersanonymous.org was set up. We have been operating since 1987. We have chapters all over the USA, and in five countries now – Canada, Australia, Costa Rico, the UK, and Russia. There are clips at http://www.hightechmadam.com showing we have chapters all over the USA run by people other than myself. I am not all of SWA in other words. After 30 years of service, we did not suddenly go crazy either.

          A member who is a “white hat” computer hacker looked at the site and came back remarking what a “clever way it was to generate a mirror of our traffic”. I asked what she meant by that. She pointed out that if we aren’t coughing up information on who comes to talk to us – how would law enforcement then do the same if they can’t legally get a warrant or subpena, can’t audit us, and can’t pay us to be a snitch? One way would be to set up a site identical to that where those thinking about contacting us would go there to check us out. A cookie is attached, the IP address is grabbed, and note there is no privacy policy on there (or there wasn’t before I made this statement and I have screen shots of this to validate) to stop them from grabbing information and collecting it and then following you on the cookie. Meaning they are generating a mirror log of the traffic coming to our site using that site. Clever.

          Especially when to generate that site they spent two months trying to find one single legitimate member of SWA through all kinds of tricks – to no avail. PROVING – they couldn’t get past our security. In fact, quite a few members of SWA did try and go there to post comments that were positive – that were not posted. We kept documentation of these attempts to prove that site is not up for informational purposes – but a smear only and to gather information.

          Older does mean wiser. I watched as a big shin dig was organized in Vegas around medical marijuana. They kept assuring everyone “law enforcement wasn’t involved” and that it was supposed to be “for” medical marijuana supporters. I’m thinking to myself at the time “who is going to be dumb enough to show up at this thing”. Well sure enough a lot of people. They paid to get in and showed their ID cards. A lot of vendors paid to exhibit there even. Then when the place got nice and full – Metro moved in and started busting people, taking names and kicking ass. Go on – look it up in the papers.

          While you’re at it – go and look at the board structure of SWOP. They are supposed to be a majority of sex workers. However, not one person on that board is engaging in any type of illegal sex work and maybe less than 20 percent of the board are even in the sex industry. Yet they keep encouraging you to have people “vouch” that you’re engaged in illegal sex work, hand over bank information, and show your face at events. While prostitution is still illegal in most of the USA – those meetings could be considered as “conspiracy” or even “terrorist conspiracy” meetings if you are discussing illegal activity of which prostitution is. That’s why COYOTE was about womens’ rights and why when SWA used to work together with SWOP – it was about helping sex workers who couldn’t go to the police to escape trafficking, and also to help them through alternative sentencing and provide exit services. As long as our mutual joint outreach and meetings were for those purposes – no crime was being committed and therefore law enforcement had no “probable cause” to obtain phone tapes, warrants, or send in undercover agents either.

          There is something seriously wrong with the new management of SWOP who would stand by and watch women like Amber Batts, and Letsha Clay, go off to jail where there’s children involved rather than tell them all they have to do is contact us to receive an “alternative to incarceration” so they don’t have to be locked up. Even if you have a mandatory jail term – we can get you out of that. Now in my book – anyone on a sex workers’ side is going to want them to have that tool in the toolbox until we can change our laws to decriminalize sex work.

          Remember, in the 1980’s, the CIA looked like they were in the drug dealing business. http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/10/27/missionaries_aid_workers_used_as_north_korea_spies_by_pentagon_and_kay_hiramine.html Only what they did was throw in jail those who could snitch on them like Rick “Freeway” Ross to silence him, or their competition.

          Now I ask you – who is the independent sex worker a “competitor” of? Legal brothels in Nevada and sex traffickers. Jeane Palfrey by the way when she revealed her “Black Book” wasn’t revealing the names of customers – but of the men who were trafficking her and her escorts like Brandy Britton, who also wound up dead before trial.

          There are reasons why sex workers who don’t want anyone to know who they are, or where they went, come to http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com and anyone who is against that isn’t for sex workers. We receive no federal grants, no money from any church, and we charge no money for what we do. Baskets aren’t even passed at our meetings – and we’re not the ones holding fund raisers.

          You’re smart men and women – you figure it out. If this appears – I’ll be shocked.

            Jody Williams aka “Anonymous” is having another brain hemorrhage, clearly. I explained repeatedly that I’m required to produce my immigration papers before I can get ID even in NV. She leaves this part out b/c it suits her. I also didn’t ask her to make a fake ID, I know a hundred different Mexicans who can do that for me but Ive no need for a fake ID, just a real, legit one. Praise the Lord ; I now have a competent attorney diligently working to get my records. Just sharing my success story 🙂 the rest of yall have fun with Jody, she’s a trip =)

    “Kamylla” is the ONLY individual who has ever received meaningful assistance from Cupcake Girls. No-one before or since has gotten this level of help – or any help actually.

    Kamylla is the woman who is known for having been a paid actress on the now notorious reality TVshow 8 minutes. She is the same person whose fundraiser this spring was widely regarded to be the “flagship effort” of the Cupcake Girls organization. It is no secret that the Cupcakes attached themselves to the Kamylla case due to the enourmous amount of publicity surrounding the 8minutes TV series & Kamyllas resulting campaign against the show.

    The fact that the Cupcake Girls have never before – or since – Kamylla helped any woman get a lawyer shows that this is not typical of the way they operate. Cupcake Girls basically piggy-backed onto a very high-profile, well-publicized case that was making headlines in the media and was the subject of much activity on social media as well. Cupcakes benefited themselves from the resulting publicity and their affiliation to Kamylla helped “cement” their status with the sexworker community.

    The thing thats awful strange and calls for close scrutiny is the fact that they had to look as far as Houston, TX to find a sexworker in need. Cupcake Girls is based in Las Vegas and this city sees more than its fair share of women unjustly arrested for prostitution and other vague collatoral charges such as loitering or “manifesting an intent to engage in prostitution” etc. A substantial amount of these woman are just like Kamylla in the sense that they are immigrants and single mothers and resorted to prostitution out of desperation. The one notable distinction is they didnt appear on a TV show that was the subject of outrage by sexworkers around the world and they didnt have articles & features & writeups about them.

    In Las Vegas alone: law enforcement arrests some 3,000 women a year for prostitution- related charges – this is an average of ten per day, give or take. Many of these woman also wouldve loved to have had the benefit of a fundraiser and a private attorney to fight unjust / inflated charges. But the fact that they werent famous and werent the subject of a reality TV show causes Cupcake Girls to kick them to the curb and tell the to avail themselves of the services of the public defender. I have spoken with various sexworkers and adult entertainers in the Las Vegas area who have requested assistance with legal counsel and were crudely dismissed and told their case was not of “sufficient significance”

    Cupcake Girls spent an inordinate amount of time, money and effort throwing themselves behind Kamylla while giving the boot and the cold shoulder to women in the very area in which they are based. In true mediawhore fashion: their CEO Joy Hoover posted appeals for money for Kamyllas fundraiser, which was being managed by Hoover, while local ladies in Vegas had to scramble to help themselves or depend on court-appointed legal counsel.

    The dynamics of this situation are very, very suspicious and call for this organization to be scrutinized more closely. If the only way a woman can get help is by making the headlines, and then a organization jumps on her bandwagon at the expense of women in their own backyard, something is quite fishy.

    In closing: the Cupcakes dont care about the real life pressing needs or issues faced by the sexworkers in the geographical region in which they have set up shop. They care only about drawing attention to themselves and its a fair assessment that they benefitted as much from the Kamylla fundraiser via publicity as Kamylla herself did from them.

      It is APPALLING that an organization that claims to serve sex workers would call the police for a little online public shaming. Especially when the org has blown themselves up some nice, fat publicity on the backs of sex workers.

      For shame.

    Either the website is down or the operators of this site are now taking sides and turning this into a biased forum. Whichever the case, it is NOT ok to censor comments that are unpopular
    Cupcake Girls clearly have more than their fair share of detractors. In spite of this, it appears this site is not allowing any more criticism of them which amounts to censorship.
    I have personal knowlodge that Sally Anne is most definitely a real live person. As someone who has been the feature of numerous articles by well-respected journalists in established media outlets, her identity has never been in question.

    She also supports herself via sexwork by virtue of necessity and doesnt beg online with 15 different fundraisers circulating at once, unlike Kamylla whose comment reflects above.

    She speaks out against Cupcake Girls the way Kamylla did against the TV show “8 minutes” and a full year later Kamylla is still crying about it on social media. Yet she comes on this site….why to stalk Sally ?

      Kayla – it is a biased forum here and one I believe is gathering information on sex workers for law enforcement. I’ve had at least 10 members of http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com, and also myself, have tried posting positive reviews under our listing, and they have not appeared despite months passing, and other reviews having been posted. So “being backed up” is not an excuse. Straight up rigging this site is. So you are correct Kayla.

    I’m not certain why the same organization is represented on two different pages, but I posted a review of an incident of totally unwarranted slut-shaming in which these women outed by sister’s identity on Facebook after she posted a negative but true review. I already went into detail on this site under the section Cupcake Girls Las Vegas but its worth mentioning here that numerous ladies in the adult entertainment industry set up a website to warn others stay away from these Cupcake Cunts. We hope lots of other victims will come forward so we collectively can pursue this with the authorities. These Cupcake Cunts are scam artists. Heres our website.
