HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
travel and host

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Tried to do it in mexico city and brazil, but instead was sexually harassed and propositioned at every turn! I had to report SO MANY creeps!
Men, I don't want to sleep with you, and I will NEVER want to sleep with you. And yes, I can say that without even meeting you. So don't waste your time and mind by trying to convince me otherwise, i'll just report you and get you kicked off the site.
IF you are a gay man or a woman (straight or gay) I would love to stay with you while I travel! So contact me if you see i'm in your city.
IF you're a straight man from whatever city i'm in, i'm open to having you be my walking tour guide, but that is IT.
