The Catch: Gay Escort, Tight Quarters, Owl Needed

New, 46 comments

What/Where: According to the listing, its a "semi-one bedroom/studio" in Echo Park. "There’s a 'main area' that contains the general living-room type area, the kitchen, and my desk/work space set up behind the living room area (like a studio)." Additionally, there's a bedroom sans door (but has a curtain) that is available for rent. The poster sleeps in the living room on the couch.

Sounds good, right?: The poster is "fun and wacky," and he likes "Unique souls." He's also smoker-friendly: "I smoke cigs and love it." The rent is $500 and includes utilities.
The Catch: The post's headline pretty much sums it up: "Could You Live with a Gay Hooker in Tight-Quarters?" But let's explore further. The poster wants a roommate who is a "night owl" and must be "very sexually enlightened and OK with my frequent sexing." He is a "47yo single gay guy; I sex a lot, and I escort – often here." He also drinks "copious" amounts of beer, claims he's hardly ever drunk, occasionally dabbles in other stuff but avoids "Meth-heads like the Plague." He also helpfully provides his schedule: "I get to work from the moment I get up (usually no earlier than noon) till 2-3a (sometimes longer); I do projects on the computer for income, and I cruise for sex." Oh, and he's a heavy sleeper on the couch. [Image of Jeff Gannon via Mediabistro. He's probably not the poster. But we have no proof.]
