Man who offers rent for sex defends action, says “it is an honest arrangement”
One of the landlords demanding sex from potential tenants in lieu of rent has defended the action saying the arrangement is not illegal and that it doesn’t make him a pervert.
The landlord, who chose to remain anonymous appeared on, ‘This Morning show’, presented by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield and backing the cameras told them, “it is an honest arrangement between consenting adults.”
According to ‘This Morning special investigation’, his justification comes after recent figures claimed 250,000 women in Britain are being offered free or discounted rent in exchange for sexual favours.
He said, “I’m doing nothing wrong. It’s an arrangement between two adult human beings. ‘I’m not looking for a sixteen-year-old, an eighteen-year-old, I want someone of my own age. I’m not looking for somebody that’s vulnerable, and if somebody is vulnerable, I wouldn’t be interested.”
He explained his personal reason for the arrangement; “I’m seeking an arrangement. I’m very honest in what I say. I’m very forward and honest and don’t tell lies. I have been married and I have a family.
“But I find that modern day relationships do not work and if they do they only work for a short period of time. Most females lie. They are working to an agenda.”
“I offer them a life, more than a fully stocked fridge. They are still in touch with me. I’m not a pervert. It’s an arranged relationship. I have a fantastic life and I just want to share it.” He concluded.
Researcher Enya Quin-Jarvis came across a ‘hundred of adverts’ across the UK, offering the ‘friends with benefits’ living arrangement on Craig list, Metro UK reports.
