ALMOST TIED UP
In late summer last year, my friend and I needed to make some side money, so she and I were browsing Craigslist and found a man wanting two girls to tie him up and give him a massage. At first we were a little sketched, then we saw that he would pay $800. We really needed the extra money (it was rent and deposit time of the year) so we sent him an email with our pictures and told him what we’d be willing to do: tie him up, give him an hour-long massage, untie him and then we would leave. He seemed into it, even when we wrote that in no way would we do anything more than tease him with a massage. Read: no happy endings. He accepted and gave us his address in a nice part of town, and we were all set to make some cash. We even exchanged a few emails with him and he seemed pretty normal save for his weird fetish. However, a few days before we were about to begin our new careers as bondage masseurs, we told a good friend about it and he highly suggested we bring him along as a bodyguard. We emailed our new fetish friend again and asked if he would spring for $50 more to bring our man to stand at the door, outside even, just for safety. We assured him our friend wouldn’t interrupt and he wouldn’t even have to meet him. We’d pay our guy $50 each of our own money to total $150 for making sure we weren’t disembodied or worse. We were sure this wouldn’t be a problem as the guy seemed fairly generous and polite—but his response was anything but. He called the entire thing off and basically said we were incredibly rude and horrible people for suggesting such a thing. Yeah, we pretty much owe our guy friend our lives.
