Rental free rooms in exchange for sex?

By 16 February 2009 103

[First filed: February 16, 2009 @ 09:40]

I came across this (http://www.news.com.au/business/story/0,27753,25056894-5013951,00.html) article which reports that there have been ads listed for rent free properties in exchange for a relationship and/or sex.

It stated, “A similar ad on flatmates.com.au read: “$0 to share flat, wanted flatmate/girlfriend to share unit in Griffith, ACT.”

Is this the result of the rental crisis or is this another avenue of singles to hook up?? Desperate times calling for desperate measures?

UPDATED: Many thanks to poptop for finding us Greg of Ragless Circuit in Kambah.

Greg is a 49 year old who would like to offer a 16-99 year old non-smoker a cash-free room:

    Free accomodation in exchange for some regular intimate contact. Own room and bathroom and use of all facilities

ANOTHER UPDATE: Thanks to the miracle of Google’s Street View we can tour Ragless Circuit from our desktops and try to guess which house is Greg’s!

‘Young female flatmate wanted: Inner city apartment, $0pw rental, conditions apply’ show up occasionally on Craigslist.

Personally, I find them sexist.

Noone seems to be forcing anyone to do anything they don’t want…

Abusive and wrong I understand, but sexist? I personally find females attractive, but not men. Does that make me sexist?

how can you find that sexist? if someone advertised it with “young male flatmate wanted” would you still find it sexist.

that’s about the most thin skinned comment i’ve ever seen.

everybody has a sexual preference, i’m sure that includes you, and nobody is legally required to conform to anybody elses sexual preference, at least not to my knowledge in Australia.

if you’re trolling, then well done.

It would seem that any mentio0n of sex or sexuality gets branded “sexist” these days..

Only sexist people get branded sexist. I would believe its been levelled at you quite often PB.

Its probably not sexist to list a preference. But what it may be is abusive. Luring a young girl to a flat with the intention of holding power over her. It would be the young girls who are already vulnerable, who are more likely to answer this add.

It also could be a form of prostitution and thus taxable.

I like sex. And I saw a duck once.

Guess how you structured it. Could be FBT would be payable on the free accommodation.

Really Dexi? I awiat your proof of that with bated breath.

Which just disproved your first point.

Offering accommodation for sex couldn’t be anything other than abusive surely?

Obviously.

Would that make it right?

Frankly I think the sort of people willing to accept this offer are the sort of people willing to rob you blind when you’re not home.

That’s why you would need to keep them locked under the stairs when you weren’t home.

If a young woman already worked in the sex industry, this could be a way of reducing her living expenses.

#15
dexi10:45 am, 16 Feb 09

If you are a young girl and you are considering answering this add you might like to know your full entitlements.

Sex can be billed at $250 (Minimum) an hour, contact time. That would mean that for 2 hours a week of sex, you should have full use of the flat minus him.

The girlfriend experience is far more expensive and would include lifes luxuries. Car, phones, computers, foxtel, jewlrey, regular entertainment, food and wads of cash when asked for. This still does not include full contact and should be negotiated for 5 days a week (maximum).

Don’t sell your self short. Don’t settle for cheap stuff.

Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

It sounds like a nightmare to me. Just imagine your landlord turning up whenever the hell he wanted, and feeling like he owned your body as well as your living space.

Would appeal mostly to the homeless and desperate. Those already in the industry could afford to do heaps better.

After a divorce settlement, the more financially powerful partner often has to pay for some of the other partners living expenses. They don’t get ANY sex.

Now that’s abuse!

I’m wondering what you would have to clean for an inspection! :)

“Those already in the industry could afford to do heaps better.”

Know how to play the player. They do heaps better because they know how to. The Girlfriend/sugardaddy thing is a difficult job. It helps if you go into the job with some support.

I see these adds in the same light as matchmakers penis photo adds. The only winner is the advertising revenue.

Homeless and desperate may have already fled men like these.

I’m sure Skid is just kidding about it being sexist and I find his comment quite amusing.

Abuse? I think there’s far too much consent here to think there’s abouse NECESSARILY going on.

It’s a very interesting ad and I really have to think more before I comment more specifically about it….hmmm…..

It could simply involve a busy home owner who would give free accommodation in exchange for the cleaning to be done, laundry cooking etc. Yes, while it might be rather naive sounding of me, but perhaps this is the expectation, not just a sex slave as has been suggested.

#25
Granny1:09 pm, 16 Feb 09

That’s true, Tylers.

: )

But then again you wouldn’t think they would have to be young and female to clean or even female for that matter ….

pull your head in… if it is a consensual arrangement what is the problem?

Proof, you need to chill out man. That response is a little hard core to anthers point of view!

At the end of the day, it’s probably a dweeb looser with a bunch on money, and believe that by having a girl move in for free, that one thing will eventually lead to another and hey presto – life long partner.

Now imagine if the girl resisted these plans, can you imagine what the angry dweeb would do next?! I’ll tell you…out the door with a bunch of “I gave yo free accommodation and I get no appreciation in return” etc etc. Indeed Granny, sounds like a bit of a nightmare in reality!

I can’t find the ad. It is not listed anymore. Maybe he has found what he was looking for.

Yes, I reckon they would deserve it. More likely your new flatmake would start working at home in the same industry the advertiser is encouraging them to join.
