Landlords Offering “Sex-For-Rent” – Is It Illegal? More Importantly, Should YOU Do It?

Tenant & landlord relationship

My gut is urging me to tread extremely carefully with this topic, although my grotesque mind is racing a million miles per second, crunching through a range of inappropriate gags and sarcasm. Perhaps I’ve already signed up to be the focal point of a witch hunt, and tossed myself into an early grave by suggesting that humour has a place here. Obviously it does!

In any case, I don’t think anyone should be surprised by the fact that landlords substituting fiat currency for ‘sexual favours’ to cover rent is a real thing. I suspect it’s been happening since the beginning of time and will continue to do so, either under terms of consensus or manipulation/exploitation. Similarly, it would be wholly naive to believe that landlords have exclusive rights to foul-play; I’m sure there are equally as manipulative tenants as there are landlords, using sex as a tool for advancement.

Yes, sex sells, but apparently it pays the rent, too.

So, obviously the million dollar question is, should landlords offer sex-for-rent and should tenants sexually exploit their landlords?

First and foremost, we’re all adults here, so I think we can all agree that there’s nothing inappropriate or wrong about two (or more) people [of age] consensually ravaging one another until the early hours, until the last breath, whether there’s a landlord and tenant relationship or otherwise. In fact, it’s rather beautiful.

But what if there’s exploitation involved? For example, in the case of a landlord and tenant relationship:

  • Landlord offering sex for rent (particularly if the tenant is facing financial hardship)
  • Landlord threatening to evict tenant unless they agree to be zipped-up in a leather gimp suit and spanked with a fly-swatter
  • Tenant refusing to pay rent unless they’re pleasured with anal beads and subjected to degrading sexual favours
  • Tenant or landlord sexually seducing the other


On a side note, the narrative is ALWAYS that landlords are one’s taking advantage, so I’m intentionally trying to share a balanced perspective, by making it abundantly clear that it is entirely within the realms of possibility that one of my tenants’ could attempt to manipulate me into boning him/her senseless! Actually, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’d say it’s very possible.

Gosh, people, open your minds!

Landlord charged in first “sex for rent” case in UK

So, onto the reason for why I’m even talking about sex-for-rent and the beauty that is “love making” *vomit*

According to this article on the Metro website, a landlord is facing two counts of inciting prostitution, after being accused of offering “sex for rent”. It’s thought to be the first in the UK to be charged over such allegations.

Christopher Cox, 52, is accused of asking women to provide sexual services and sending him pictures of themselves wearing bikinis in exchange for accommodation.

Prosecutors today told Staines Magistrates’ Court he posted adverts on classified website Craiglist offering a free room to vulnerable or homeless young women at his home in Cranleigh, Surrey.

Cox allegedly wanted them to be willing to be tied up and perform bondage sex acts with him, claimed Prosecutor Kimberly Grabban.

These are believed to be the first charges brought forward for “sex for rent” allegations – where landlords offer free accommodation in return for sexual acts – in England and Wales.


Cox sounds like a straight-up freaky-deaky! I suspect he’s destined to be placed in a padded cell.

What can we take away from this story and the entrepreneurial mind of Christopher Cox? If there has ever been an inkling of doubt in your mind about whether a landlord or tenant can or should replace sexual favours for fiat currency – which, on the surface, may seem totally understandable and logical – perhaps it’s worth taking note of the situation Cox finds himself in. With that said:

  • At the time of writing this blog post, there has been no verdict on Christopher Cox’s fate, he’s yet to be sentenced. However, it’s probably best to assume that sexual exploitation/blackmail is illegal in all forms;
  • and no, you shouldn’t do it. Go figure!

Out of curiosity, has anyone actually slept with their tenant? I don’t mean by deploying any manipulative tactics, I just mean on the basis of “it just happened. Nature is beautiful.”

What the hell is "Peanut" wearing around his right ankle? Is it some kind of garter that has slipped or some kind of frilly schoolgirl sock?

I dont like the look of those stains either especially since you only needed one hand to take the picture! Care to share? Just Googled 'girl builders arse' to even things up but was highly dissapointed at the lack thereof.

I have a tenant just moved in. She is 23, blonde and looks like she needs help lifting her massive tits into bed. I have wondered many many many times about offering this service but how would I handle them, sorry I mean it, if the rent didnt come? I want 'it' but it aint gonna be 'that or the wallet'. This is why landlords masturbate and act so frustrated all the time. We are surrounded by hot women we could go bonk, just to help them through their boring and tedious nights alone. You know, come to think about it, we would be doing them a favour. Thats it, Im going down blondies tomorrow and offering my sex services to her for a modest increase in the rent!

Jeffo - surely this is a service you could offer to all women, not just your tenants? In fact, you should probably avoid tenants 'cause you'll never know what she really wants when she asks come round and fix something!

Although I'm all for it, I bet it could back fire fast, what happens if there a shit shag, or got a manky snatch, then the following month they want the same discount.

You are right. I have 3 apartments and i have alwz used sort of these tricks to fuck all my female tenants. they enjoy the fuck and pay less and receive gifts. I cant see anything they can expect better for them. One of my tenants even invited me abroad to keep her company in return for not paying the rent for the month. I really cant resist the hotties staying in one of my apartments without getting fucked!!!

You are absolutely disgusting! Manipulating people by making them have sex with you so that they can keep a roof over their heads. That's borderline rape! I'd rather live on the streets than spend five seconds in bed with you if I were your tenant. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Anyway, I'd do my landlord he's so cute and sweet. He stares at me a lot and tries to talk soft on the phone. Lol. I think he's to shy to ask.

You ladies who are into it, feel free to make the first move. If Landlord is a decent guy, he won’t want to come off like a creep. But if you’re an attractive younger woman, and you’re late on your rent and ask if there’s *anything* I could do, while licking your finger, that should do the trick.

I hope this is satire but even if it is then it’s not in good taste. I am currently trying to find a new place to stay and as soon as potential landlords find out that I am female it starts up. “I can lower your rent in exchange for an arrangement.”

It is so degrading and disgusting and they are so blatant about it. I’ve been to view flats with my male friend and the landlords seem nice and as soon as it is pointed out I will be renting alone and we’re not a couple I can feel them change completely. Looking all over me, then they try to grab a quick moment alone to ask about it or wait til I’m gone and message me. Makes my skin crawl.

It is really difficult for a young single woman to find a safe place away from these creeps. I didn’t know about this problem until I started looking at tenancy on my own. It is really difficult. Nowadays I try to find female only properties to be safe.

Look up “Sex for rent” it is a serious problem. Men preying on vulnerable women who are homeless or can’t afford high rental fees.

Then you will see that this is not funny at all.

Peanut looks hot. I'd probably fuck him.
However, while a nice arse on a bloke is all very well, there's not many "positions" available to a lady where she gets a good veiw of a nice arse ifyaknowwhatimean so it's kind of a waste.
I would recommend your friend do the "It's hot in here" routine and take if his t-shirt completely. Prefarbly while drinking a can of diet coke for the humour element. Then post a picture on here so we can negotiate.

The only problems I can see with this is that if she is able to get away with not paying rent by having sex once she will likely try it again all the time. If I am renting to someone I want money. If she cannot pay rent then I will give her notice to leave. if I allow her to pay using sex she might try it again in the future, she might tell other female tenants who will then try the same thing, or she might decide to get authorities involved claiming I sexually harassed her. However, as I am also male, the above does seem to be a great fantasy. The only reason I might consider this situation is if she is late with her rent for that month and If she was the one who offered. I would engage in it to allow her more time to pay the rent

I've slept with my landlord before he became my landlord. I went to uni with him and he was married at the time. Then.10 years later we bump into each other and we were both single. I've always had a crush on him so we had one night together.I am 35 and he is 45. That's pretty much how I got the place I have right now but he went back to his ex and so did I. I still have a crush on him but he had a small dick and wasn't very good in bed so I think it all worked out for the best haha.

I just posted a query I have, and found this, love this humour...
I did have a creepy solicitor landlord years ago when I was young and sexy, tell me that there where other ways of paying,whilst backing me up against the sideboard when I'd said could I pay the rent a week late,
I rushed out to show him the garden as he looked like Blakey from "On the buses"

I suggest you take this post down.. Sex for rent is illegal and the first case is now in the courts Numerous homeless organisations campaigning against sex for rent have been made aware of this link and are in contact with your host. With your attitude towards women you should be monitored by police and probation and on a register.

Why would I take it down? Did you even read it?

So to make it clear, I’m not telling ANYONE to do or try any of the above, it would be monstrously insane, and likely illegal! This blog post is written off the back of “locker room talk”, it’s completely bullshit.
