Couchsurfing? That's for Pussies

My reason for stopping with - an awesome concept by the way. I actually once met the founder at a henna party in Berlin - is that I'm no pussy. Or, more to the point, that I don't have one. Tis harsh but true -- like castor oil. 
just stick to beats the stress of campaigning for a free pillow
Couchsurfing only works for female travellers because far and few between are the folktales where knights rescue dudes in distress, people feel safer letting strange women inside their homes, and hosts readily like the ego-stroke of having lots of females pass through their pad (because, yeah, some of them will open up...even if she has to return to do so; it's a numbers game).

I've had scant success; so scant that I just stick to hostels and small hotels now. It beats the stress of campaigning for a free pillow. California and Germany, with a sum of five cities between them, were the only places in the world where I experienced couchsurfing. Five cities out of a dozen countries, and dozens more locales, does not a positive endorsement make.
