The start of this Craigslist ad for a “Personal Assistant to Director (Foreigner)” begins like many of these do: with insinuations (“Open Minded Ladies only”) and more insinuations (“Females only”), and a few more of those (“Age between 22 to 29… Pleasant looking, well-dressed, well-groomed”). But then, three-quarters of the way down — far enough for the poster to have finished his whiskey — the pretenses disappear:
Attending to my personal needs including sexual needs if need be. You should be open minded and willing to provide sexual favors to me and selected clients. You sohuld also be willing to accompany me to parties and dress according to my instructions and then proceed to after-party for sex afterwards. I do not need sex every day, and some times I will only require oral sex. But you should regard it as part of your job to make sure my sex needs are met, since I will be alone in China for a few months.
Disclaimer, of course, that this can be completely fake, but let’s forge on…
Qualified candidates must also provide Chinese tutoring, translation help, administrative and secretarial assistance, human resources, and companionship (“spending some time with me travelling to other parts of China for leisure purposes”). In other words, if you are the perfect woman, there’s a guy willing to pay 21,500 RMB per month in exchange for your dignity and soul.
Credit where it’s due: at least the guy’s upfront. Even if this is fake, let it stand as an example to the sex trollers out there on how these ads should be done. If you’re seeking an escort, make it clear. One would hate for a candidate, after sending in two photos and “a letter of interest describing yourself,” to hold illusions about what the job actually entails.
