If You're Beautiful, You Can Get a 'Free' Vacation
You can travel for free, but it'll cost you.
"Are you attractive but don't have the money to travel?" asks new dating site MissTravel.com.
Well, fear not! For now you can hang out with a rich but desperate lothario who will give you a vacation—simply for being hot!
"We match Generous travelers who hate to travel alone with Attractive travelers who would love the opportunity to travel the world for free."
A free trip with a stranger who thinks you're pretty? Isn't this the stuff our mothers warned us about?
Oh, and get this—in lieu of traveling with a Generous traveler, you can also earn frequent flyer miles that "may be redeemed for free flights on all major airlines." So you can, you know, take a trip with people you already know.
So basically, you register, find someone who tickles your globetrotting fancy, and then you can propose a trip one of three ways: 1. Travel with me to a new destination 2. Come to Me, or 3. Show Me Your Town.
"Remember, on MissTravel.com, if you end up traveling, the Generous traveling member is expected to pay all travel expenses for Attractive traveling members."
Wade told the Village Voice that sex isn't guaranteed on these excursions, but in the same article he argues that the recent Secret Service sex scandal could have been prevented with the use of MissTravel. So I think it's safe to say that most of these "Generous travelers" have ideas. Especially when a majority of "Attractive traveler" profile pics involve salacious poses accompanied by an abundance of cleavage.
I'm all for traveling on a budget, but I bet beholding the grandeur of the Taj Mahal isn't the same with someone trying to get in your pants.

Are you in an affair without knowing it? Unless you’re a swinger, having sex with someone else counts as cheating. But then there’s the fuzzy area between friendship and infidelity—and chances are, your girlfriend sees those shades of gray as more black and white than you do. “Men aren’t as attuned to identifying ambiguous behaviors as cheating as women are,” says Daniel Kruger, Ph.D., a University of Michigan psychologist, who’s studied gender differences in definitions of infidelity. In other words, what you consider totally innocent could be her deal breaker.
