"They Only Want You For Your Sheets" is the headline on NYPost.com for the growing trend in NYC about men & women who sleep with other men & women, and then squat in their apartment for a month or two until moving on to their next victim.
The weirdest part? The WOMEN are the most likely to take in Sex Gypsies.
Forget bed bugs. There’s a new parasite moving into apartments. This one has two feet, a sex drive, and travels with a duffel bag. Call them “sex gypsies” — people who hook up largely so they have a place to stay. They’re not quite homeless, but they’d rather go to your place than theirs. And they’d like to stay for as long as possible. (And no, it’s not just a story line on “Girls”!)
Women often take in sex gypsies because, “women are socialized to take care of others, and dating in general is pretty stacked towards the dudes in north Brooklyn.” Women may also take better care of their living spaces, and be more eager for a relationship. Taking in a sex gypsy beats adopting a cat if you need companionship.
