A shocking of adverts explicitly offering accommodation across Greater Manchester in exchange for sex have been posted on the site. A shocking of adverts explicitly offering accommodation across Greater Manchester in exchange for sex have been posted on Craigslist.
If you need a place to stay I can offer you a room for free in return for regular sex. Our investigation highlighted at least 12 adverts in which rooms in Greater Manchester were offered rent free between May and July this year.
We also discovered for rooms elsewhere in the UK which specifically targeted homeless and vulnerable people. Under the Act, it is illegal to cause or incite prostitution for gain.
But the law says nothing specific of sex-for-rent deals. Earlier this year Craigslist closed its dating section in the US following a new bill against sex trafficking. Adverts were found for properties in 38 different UK towns and cities, the majority of which were in London. Craigstlist has taken action to remove some of the more explicit adverts. But other, less explicit adverts have been up for more than a month.
