Margot sipped her wine and refreshed her inbox. She'd never done anything like this and could hardly wait to see what sort of response she would get to her ad. Nothing yet. Maybe she should have included a picture? Just something to entice. She looked around her bedroom and, spotting the full-length mirror on her closet door, thought she could use that. She wished she had a friend to take the pic for her, then, as she thought about how much she hated those silly self pics teenaged girls used to flood the internet, it occurred to her she could simply place another ad looking for a guy who might be interested in photographing a horny, nude, somewhat plain electrical engineer.
She was about to start creating the ad when the first response came in. It was from some person using the name "Studly." The email simply read, "Send full nudes. Will respond with same." Right, she thought. So I send this person nude pics, never hear from them again, then find my pics on some porn site three years from now. I don't think so.
She deleted the email and returned to creating her ad when, unexpectedly, somebody rang her doorbell and knocked at her door.
