- New website sets up attractive travellers with high-rollers
- Calls for open-minded people who lack money for travel
- Founder denies allegations it's a "front for prostitution"
SEXY and you know it? Longing to travel the world?A controversial new website promises to set up attractive women with high-rolling and “generous” men willing to pay for a beautiful travel companion.
The Miss Travel site launched this week, calls for “open minded people who love to travel, but lack the budget to do so”.
The site has been accused of being a front for prostitution, with Gawker calling it the “#1 prosti-travel website”.
Founder Brandon Wade rejects the claims, telling US media that escorts are not allowed to use the site, no money is exchanged and sex is not discussed on the website.
A quick glance at the site brings up a flood of sexy pictures, including women in bikinis.
As well as having to post a photo, “attractive” travellers are required to reveal their age, build, hair and eye colour, race and height.
Among the ad descriptions are “Hot Girl seeks Financially stable man”, “Naughty babe looking for a sugardadie “, “Model/ PhD student @ yr disposition” and “Smart. Classy, sophisticated lady.”
The site reminds members that online dating is “risky”, and experts say meeting someone in this way is not usually a recipe for a successful relationship.
“Relationships steeped in equality, mutual respect and intimacy do not begin with ‘Fund my travel experience because I'm hot',” sexologist and relationship expert Logan Levkoff told Msnbc.com.
Mr Wade is also CEO of the controversial “sugar daddy” site seekingarrangement.com and seekingmillionaire.com.
