Then this might be just what you´re looking for. If you meet some conditions, that is. http://www.gumtree.com/london/13/33351213.html It reads:
Hi! You can stay at my flat in a highly desirable location in West Central London for FREE. The property is very spacious and comprises of bedroom, bathroom, living area and dining room, is well kitted out (with flat screen tv, sky, wireless internet, etc) and benefits from two nearby parks, as well as all of the amenities of the area. The value of this offer totals over £2000 a month. What’s the catch? You will need to be a young attractive girl willing to share a bed with a young attractive guy (please don't ask me what this means, as I am sure you know). You will also be happy to keep the apartment clean and run the occasional errand. About me? I’m in my thirties, white caucasian, 6 ft, am well-educated, sporty, and work in investments. I spend a good deal of time working, and even more travelling. That said, I thoroughly enjoy good company, as well as frequenting the many fine restaurants and clubs London has to offer. The motivation behind the offer? My lifestyle makes pleasant, honest, relaxed, and above all, consistent female company hard to come by. Moreover, I need to meet someone different. [...] Please note due to the large number of replies, if any of the above information is missing in your email, there will be no reply.
Nice flat, though.

Apparently a really popular posting in France as well from what I remember some months back.

Yay incredible population densities?

Sorry to bump up my own thread, but after re-reading it I felt like it has the capability of being misunderstood.

Obviously, this was not my ad. My gf just happened to stumble upon it on gumtree.co.uk and send me the link, which seems to be dead now. I just thought it was either sad or hilarious or maybe a bit of both and therefore posted it here.

Sorry if any confusion has occurred.

Really? I hadn´t heard of this phenomenon before, but it didn´t exactly surprise me, either.

The funniest part for me was the "due to the large number of replies" bit at the end.

There's been a string of newspaper articles on the subject in France a few months back. Supposedly, the phenomenon is common and on the rise, but I have never seen any evidence directly.

This is extremely common on the Greek islands. So common in fact, that you can easily find many lonely women who actually live on those islands. The men have such an easy time getting tourist girls to exchange sex for a place to stay during the holiday season, that the female population is essentially perpetually single.

I can't remember what they called it, but they had a term for it even.
