It's now come to this.

A group of (obviously gay) young gentlemen in the vicinity of the Tenderloin are advertising on Craigslist this week for a new male roommate. They aren't requiring candidates to be gay, though "queer friendly" is specified, but they will be requiring prospective roomies to strip down to their g-strings or tighty-whities and compete in a wet underwear contest. The winner gets the room for a mere $400 a month, basically a golden egg in the current market. "Runner-ups may get dates."

This is so Tales of the City. We love it.
