Gay "Naked Roommate" Craigslist Ad Captures D.C.'s Attention
Creepy Craigslist ads are definitely now a dime a dozen, but a man searching for a naked roommate has taken the site's reputation to a new level thanks to attention from D.C. Curbed.
On the ad, which boasts of a room in Chinatown for $1 (with a catch), Curbed writes:
This poster has a "unique" offer but it sounds more like a sketchy and possibly illegal offer. This man is looking, ideally for a straight or bisexual man with a girlfriend to be his naked roommate, although he said he'll accept a gay man if it comes to that. Nude houses show up on Craigslist from time to time, but usually those involve normal rent payments. Those who weren't already creeped out by the stipulation "$1/month rent to make lease legal" might be by the end of the listing.
Here's the ad itself:
Want to live in a penthouse in chinatown for basically free ($1/month rent to make lease legal)? Then read on. I’m a male looking for another male (straight or bisexual w/girlfriend prefered, but masc gay is cool too) to be my naked roommate. Sounds crazy, but this is for real. You should be 26 or younger and very attractive. Arraignment would be mostly “looking” but some “touching” will be required (how much/often is negotiable).
Think that the poster will find a roommate?
