Rental free rooms in exchange for sex?

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!

What book would Greg take to the National Library speed novel-lovers event?

I wonder if a nice back tickle would do the trick, or a spot of toenail clipping?

I suppose if you ended up on your back every Thursday you could multi-task by planning the shopping list, working out what you were going to wear to work tomorrow and daydreaming about the cute guy you met at lunch. Or you could just lie back and mentally tick off the dollars and cents until it was over …. That might work if you didn’t have to kiss him.

Or maybe he’s so hot that you’d be like, “Oh my God, Greg! Where have you been all my life?! Hit me with your best shot, baby! Fire away!!”

In fact, he may even be performing a valuable community service for the more partner-challenged ladies, and if he was really smart he’d advertise as a companion for the “discerning mature woman – age not an object” and get paid while he was at it!

Maybe Greg’s had a couple of people who’ve been interested, but when it comes dow to working out the finer details of the arrangement – you know, whose job is it to put the bins out that sort of thing, when they get to the “intimate contact” clause it’s been a case of … “you want me to do WHAT! with the chicken?”

Greg has now changed his ad to say: “Free accomodation in exchange for some regular (negotiable) intimate contact. Own room and bathroom and use of all facilities.”

It’s negotiable now…

I have enough knitted Daleks to behave as a flock. My own legion of cuddly evil!!

Meanwhile, back on topic, Greg appears to still be awaiting his perfect room-mate.

I would definitely think so, SheepGroper. I have made a Dalek out of cake, so I’m certain that steel wool would work nicely!

oh, and re the number of sheep, don’t really pay attention to the numbers, just the fact that they are steel sheep. daughter wants to know whether steel wool comes from them…

Every sheep is important – especially since three sheep don’t behave as a flock, only four and above do.

Mind you, if you had enough steel wool, could you knit yourself a Dalek?

ant Wanniassa is a big suburb but it’s big for a specific reason. It had to fit in all the sort of people that would live in a suburb like Wanniassa.

who thought that they were better than kambah…

Ah, all those Kambahrites who like in “Upper Kambah” can feel superior.

I wonder if Greg really put the ad up, or if someone put it there in his name for humour value? Kind like signing people up for free literature from the Church of Jesus Crist and the Latter day Saints.

bugger that. i will stick to being a mid kambah resident. wonder if greg is upper or lower kambah? might explain a lot….

Yep, it’s their solution to the old “What about all those people who died without finding out about your religion? Are they damned as well?” question. The Mormons can be a good genealogical source, if you don’t mind your ancestors becoming posthumous Mormons 🙂

I still think you people have too much time on your hands but good on you for debating the real issues. Isn’t there ANYTHING to do in Canberra? And, Pommie Bastard, well done on your comments. I am enjoying reading about the things that matter to Canberrans. Keep it up. Cheers from your correspondent in Turkey.

I’d say you have too much time on your hands petunia, if you are in Turkey and posting on a site which you hint at being no good. Perhaps go and find an equivalent site hosted somewhere like Cappadocia, and RA to people who actually enjoy it?!

Would you like some? I’m surrounded by them here. I just got some beer (Utah beer, sigh) at teh supermarket and teh lady looked very unhappy about it. I bet she would send you some LDS free literature.

Did you know teh Mormons baptize everyone into the Church after they die? That’s why they have the best genealogy resource in the world.

Isn’t Wanniassa a giant suburb too?

I think that Kambah is actually about twice as big as the next largest Canberra suburb (not four times as previously stated).

I once heard an anecdote recounted by a long time Canberra resident who once worked in the NCDC (which I understand to be a predecessor of the NCA but from pre-self government days). He claimed that Kambah was originally going to be two suburbs – Kambah was the area to the west of Drakeford Drive and the area to the east was going to be called Mount Taylor, but bureaucrats within the NCDC felt that “Mount Taylor” sounded too elitist so the whole lot just became Kambah.

Thanks elena, I had always wondered why Kambah was so much bigger than the average Canberra suburb, anyone else shed some light???
Good comments also on the topic.
