Worst of Craigslist: Where sex and video games meet

Enter at your own peril!

It’s time for our weekly adventure to the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist — the scariest, yet most fascinating, corner of the Internet.

Today in Worst of Craigslist, we learn that lodging in the city doesn’t have to be expensive, if you don’t mind someone watching you. We find fellow New Yorkers who are down on their luck, but still looking for fun. We meet one person who tells the heartwarming story of missing his dear friend who has moved out of the city — but mostly, missing his feet. Another person wants you to know your way around Super Mario Brothers (and also a bedroom).

Yet another soul is convinced he can turn your life around and cure your depression. You just need to please him orally. Trust him, it works.

And so, let our shameless exploitation of these Craigslisters begin.

A tale of friendship and loss. Can you help him out?

This guy has the answer to all of your problems. Here’s here to help. You’re welcome.

A nerd’s fantasy. And like any good nerd, he’s meticulous about his video games (and sex). Sure is a lot to remember! Don’t forget — the fireworks are vital.

Who says you have to drop a lot of money for an NYC hotel? There are generous people everywhere…

Interesting tactic: Use your unemployment to score with women. Let us know how that works out for you.

Tired of having sex with strangers? Turn to Craigslist’s “Casual Encounters” for a more meaningful relationship.
