Sex for an Xbox 360?

Craigslist ad purported to be from two female gamers who would do <i>anything</i> to get the next-gen console.

How far would you go to get an Xbox 360? Well, if one Craigslist.org ad were to be believed, two Boston-area women would do just about anything to get their hands on the next-gen console. Under the headline "trade sex for an xbox 360," a person claiming to be a 22-year-old woman said "Me and my roommate are totally hard core gamers, but our desperate (sic) attempts to get an Xbox 360 have gotten us nothing so far." The poster told responders to "send me a photo of you holding the system, and tell me what I have to do to get it." She did not mention any particular lewd acts but said her roommate was also willing to join in, despite being "really shy." But while the poster was apparently willing to debase herself to get an Xbox 360, she still had standards. "I'm looking for the PREMIUM system, not the ****ty watered down one," she said. Was the ad for real? We'll never know. Inquiries sent to the e-mail address went unanswered, and the posting has since been removed by the ever-vigilant Craigslist Community.

Craigslist is such an awful place to keep trying to find legitimate things all the times. Yeah it does have some great real deals on there but I found that there are some equal or even better alternatives to expand your options. I found some great gaming tools on this classifieds platform for example http://www.europegiant.com/free-classified-ads/514/interactive-wireless-gaming-console/ . It does have all that Craigslist offers. It's better to look everywhere... Another great one is Gumtree.

That's sad on oh so many levels. Personally, it's degrading for both because the girls want to whore themselves for a system, and the dumbass guys who'd do it just for a one-time stand of pleasure.

Funny thing is, I know some guys who would go out and buy one for them, and then trade it in. So which is sadder, the girls willing to "work for it," or the guys willing to get it for them?

what the? how could? why would? isnt that? how did? wha???? thats just sad and degrading on so many levels. i wonder how many girl gamers are shaking their heads in digust because of this. i wonder how many guy gamers(including myself) want to see pics. i wonder how many girl gamers are wondering if they could try it. im wondering how many guy gamers are wondering why im wondering so much.

That's funny...I hope it's a joke though. And to you Sony nerds, how about waiting couple of month's (when developers figure the 360 out) before you start slamming the 360.

how different is it from hookers doing things for 50 bucks, atleast they were getting some major cash. They could sell it for 700 and then they would be ladies of the night, not cheep sluts.

lol..really funny story...i don't think the 360 worth that much.

Seriously I could at least recall 9 different women i've known who've done the same thing, we've all heard of gold diggers who will settel for less. One hoe named Amy at my HS gave it up for a cookie and I know because she told me!

That would be like someone coming up to you today and saying they doubled up on a guy for a Sega Genesis! What are people thinking?

I bet it's my friend/ex. She's been wanting one...and if the way she danced last night was any indication, she would stoop to that low, being a geeky slut.

Hahahaha this is just sad. Only in the Good Ol' US of A. Where morality and dignity is easily thrown out of a window for a 360. *shakes head*

Id give a girl some good DDA for an XBOX 360. Whoring myself out for a new console isnt a bad thing in my books...but i lack moral code so *shrugs*

I'd do anything for an Xbox 360. It's too bad i'm a guy, and a majority of the Xbox 360 owners/reservees are probably guys *lol*

"but our desperate (sic) attempts" why the (sic)? desperate is spelled properly, unless you think desperate is spelled desparate?

what actually will be sad is if some person actually traded the 360 for sex (or whatever, may be asked)... even if it's a threesome.

They could easily get lots of Xbox 360s this way. Too bad the posting was deleted.

Typical Craig's List posting. The guy who answere their ad probably picked up truck tires and a tranny while getting the 360 off his back.
