Controversial dating site illegal in some U.S. cities
'Dating for dollars' could land you in jail.
But this might be the first time one of Wade's sites is actually illegal.
WhatsYourPrice.com allows members to pay for dates. One user explained the lure to Milwaukee's TMJ4:
"It just saves a lot of time, because—I'm sorry—but if you are going to pay someone $100 to go on a date, they are going to be a lot more serious than they would if they paid a $30 membership to date 100 different girls on match.com."

But law enforcement warns using the site could land you in jail in some cities. In particular, Brookfield and Oak Creek, Wisconsin have laws that ban people being paid for their time without a license.
"You are being paid for your time. You need a license in the City of Oak Creek for that, and we will arrest you if you don't," warns Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards.

Wade recently appeared on "Anderson" to defend his site among critics who compared it to an escort service.
"We make it very clear that you're not allowed to have sex on the first date," Wade has said, likening his site to a "dating auction."
"That's a completely different thing. That's a rationalization for what it is."
Despite the criticism, the site has over 750,000 members across the country, and singles often negotiate their rate for a first date.
"She could come back and say 'That's not enough. I would need $100,'" Wade explains. "You could then counter that with 'How about $90?'"
His rationalization might make sense to some, but Edwards isn't buying it.
"If you are the person that's being paid, that's who we arrest."
