Whilst it is extremely gross and icky, the old ‘rent for sex’ agreement has to be one of the oldest tricks in the book, although I’m fairly certain that we all assumed that it doesn’t happen anymore.

Well you would be completely and utterly wrong as this creep of a landlord was filmed offering rent for sex in his £650 a month Cardiff flat. Undercover reporter Sian Thomas met up with him at a fancy restaurant to discuss the details of the contract.
You can read what he said below or watch the video, whichever is easiest for you:
I don’t want to suggest anything that makes you run a mile but I want to help you out.
I don’t know if you have heard of a sort of a friends with benefits sort of arrangement.
If say for example we were going to go down the route of once a week, if we were going to do that then I wouldn’t be interested in any rent from you at all.
There you have it -just have sex with me once a week and the flat is all yours. Fantastic deal. You can probably forget about ever having a boyfriend over or even ever having a boyfriend ever. I guess for some people that’s an attractive proposition though.
Anyway, the sting was broadcast on S4C Wales last night as part of a ‘sex for rent’ feature on the show ‘Our World’. Predictably when the landlord found out about the hidden camera, he sent a particularly apologetic grovelling email saying he didn’t mean to do it and asking them not to expose his identity:
I should have trusted my gut and not done this. I’m such a fool, but this will ruin everything I have left everywhere.
I have absolutely no intention of ever even considering doing this again, tonight has really given me a reality check and I’m ashamed of myself.
Please don’t expose me for a monster.
I guess that’s why they blurred him out but that’s probably too good for him if you ask me. I mean if this hadn’t have been a sting who’s to say he wouldn’t have gone through with it – even to propose something like that you’ve gotta be a bit of a wrong ‘un so I’d bet that he would go through with it. The world needs to know about people like this.
