Will trade sex for room

Check out Nicole White's story in The Miami Herald today about classified ads offering to swap rent for sex. When I read it, I didn't know whether to laugh at the ingenuity or cringe at the very possibility that plenty of young, desperate women strapped for housing would answer. What then?
By the way, those who posted sexually explicit ads seeking women or other men were ...you guessed it, men. White found no ads by women making the same demands.
Think of it: Internet as pimp.
Back in the day, we called such arrangements prostitution. Trading a room for sex over the Internet, writes White, is relatively fresh terrain and law enforcement is still trying to figure things out. In fact, they didn't know it was happening.
There's a sliver of comforting news in all this, though. Users of the online ad services such as craigslist police their own. As one recently posted "What's wrong with you people?!!"
Yes, what's wrong with you people. Makes me wonder what type of person would so brazenly advertise for such requirements.

Sex for rent....seems like a good deal. Some women settle for just dinner and a drink.

Ana Veciana-Suarez looks like she hasn't had sex in 30 years. Hmmmm.... maybe if she pretended to be homeless. But seriously, the ongoing war on mens sexuality in this country, with its strange Matriarchal puritanism, is just depressing and is exactly why these poor men have to resort to such desperate measures.
