Trend: Barter Economy: Sex for Housing

Now you can pay rent by having sex

Craigslist has suddenly come under fire from anti-prostitution groups for a recent surge of ad rental advertisements offering low rent to women in exchange for sex.

One recent ad on the site reads: “Upscale executive seeks beautiful female 18-24 to live in his luxury condo in Coral Gables for $1/month in exchange for some light duties. Help take care of dog, cook occasionally. Sex 2x/week. Serious inquires only. Please email a picture for consideration.”

Another reads: "FREE RENT FOR A PARTY GIRL!!!!!!! If you like to party and don't want to pay rent, well then send a pic and some info about yourself. If I like what I see then I'll email my phone #."

Postings like these bartering housing for sexual favors are said to be worrisome not only because they target young women desperate for affordable housing, but they may also be against the law.

''They would be of concern to us,'' Sgt. Kelly Sullivan of the Miami-Dade Police Department told the Miami Herald. "It is a form of prostitution because they are enticing young girls who may be strapped for cash.''

In the paper's survey of online ads seeking sex for rent, no men who posted such ads were willing to comment, and there were no ads written by women seeking men.

Yeap they replaced them with a black label bearing the word “censored.” Those who formerly posted ads in the adult services category will now have to advertise elsewhere, and in fact there is evidence that this process began immediately.
