Rental Roommate Nightmares: With Sex $100, Without $400

We have an exciting batch of Rental Roommate Nightmares from Craigslist today. Some are downright tragic and depressing, while others are outright creepy.

Today you can get a room for $100 if you have sex with your roommates -- and for $400 if you don't. Or rent an apartment with three people on SSI. Or share a mansion in exchange for your body. Plus there's much, much more. Ohhh, the insanity.
Las Vegas:
$150 large room with bath (summerlin)
looking to rent large bedrooom with full bath walk in closet gated com. with pool and parking call us mike and leslie looking for a stripper or a good looking girl that would want to have sex with us or just him we both aer good looking and fit that is why the rent is so cheep no sex then pay 400.00 a month ok one way or another call seven o two nine nine four six three three zero .

Our Take: I like the implied bitterness: if you are going to have sex with your new roommate then the rent is only $100. If you don't want to the rent is $400, but things are going to be really awkward around the house.

Las Vegas: $1 If U are a bifemale and.......
down w/ sharring your body w/ our bodies then rent is FREE 4 U. This is for bi-girlz only that like the idea of being in a mini mansion (almost 5000 sqft home) on over 1/2 an acre in the center of Vegas w/ an inground 8ft deep pool, pool table, arcade machine, cable, wifi hiSpeed internet, 7bdrm, 4 full ba, near everything. U must be down w/ sex w/ a cpl (She is bi & He is STR8) and one on one w/ either her or him. Be like a 3way polyamorus relationship and regular day to day living. We pay for the bills & food all U need is 2 bring yourself. Because CL has alot of fakes We are ONLY accepting voicemails that are left w/ contact #, no emails or texts. This will weed out the fakes and keep the spam out of our email. Race is not an issue w/ Us She is WHT, He is a Mixed Male

Our Take: It seems like there is a lot of serious drug-taking going on here. This ad makes no sense whatsoever. Somehow I imagine your new roommates to be over 100 years old in their mini-mansion. But all you've got to do is share your body--no strings attached!

Las Vegas: $300 Share large 1 bedroom (near strip)
Hello! An older gay man, with a foster son and his wife, seeks a similiar man to share a large bedroom in a two bedroom apartment, situated at the beginning of strip! Rent includes electric, free internet, cable tv. Ground floor apartment with plenty of gated parking! Close to strip and buses! You must be clean, neat, prefer non-smoker or smoke on patio. No heavy drugs, or use of alcohol (moderate okay)! Need someone who will guarantee to pay rent on time! You must respect privacy and be honest and respect others.
Foster son and his wife are on SSI; she is on oxygen with COPD.
Finally, although I'm gay (closeted) you may be straight as this is not about sex!!!!! Don't reply with
out photo (face only!)

Our Take: Why does this ad make me almost want to cry at the sad poetry of life. At $300, it's a good deal for a room; all you have to do is be a closeted gay man who likes hanging around with 3 people on SSI--one of whom is on an oxygen machine. Nothing depressing here.

Miami: $30 a week looking for a female to share a room (miami)
i am looking for a female to share my room with, your share would only be $30 a week, the only thing is we would wave to share the bed, but dont worrie im not looking for sex all im looking for is someone to be there, so i have someone to talk to ... You woul have your own keys, and it is a secu there is no lease but we would let the landlord know and your name would be on the receipt so you will have the right to be there.

Our Take: It just gets sadder and sadder. Why do all these potential roommates who want someone to share a bed for almost free rent NOT expect sex? The best thing about this scenario is your new roommate would allow you to have your own set of keys. How gentlemanly.
