Reduced Rent in Exchange for Services


In searching for an apartment in Toronto, I came across this ad for a furnished room for rent, in exchange for services… Here’s the content of ad:

$1 Bright, furnished room in exchange/reduced rent for services (Bloor/Dufferin)

I’m looking for a female to clean, cook, and dress provocatively in exchange for rent.

You must be a hard worker, polite, and submissive in nature.

I am offering a large furnished room with balcony and private washroom. Kitchen is shared. Close to subway.

The space is available immediately.

I am a sane, fit, professional, attached male living alone.

Serious replies only.

What do you think?

The ad was taken down by Craigslist a couple days later…
