Hosted by CIH Futures, Futures50 is a year-long blog series which gives a platform to young housing professionals across the sector to get on their soapboxes and write about the things that matter to them.


Sex for rent has been in the media spotlight over the last 2 years as adverts have appeared online offering free or low cost accommodation in return for sex or sexual favours. Looking through Craigslist’ and other sites, the adverts all use a wide variety of euphemisms but my favourite is the laughable “friends with benefits”. Could a predator abusing their position in a market be anything further from a friend with benefits?


Sex for Rent is no doubt one of the worst consequences of a broken housing market and welfare system. Housing Women Cymru have launched a campaign to raise awareness and end this abhorrent practice. Join us to help shape the next phase of the project and deliver a solution that ensures victims are offered the advice and support that they deserve.
