Warning: contains foot fetishes and chastity belts

An aspiring lawyer studying at the University of Edinburgh has tickled the funny bones of nearly 30,000 people by tweeting some odd messages she received from a landlord.

19-year-old Erin Clark will be moving to France at the end of this month to study at the Paris Institute of Political Studies. Desperate to secure a roof over her head, Clark began seeking a flatshare online.

She was likely pleased when she received a message on Facebook from someone called ‘Francisco’. He told Clark he has a “big studio flat” on offer with two beds, a kitchen and a balcony.

But then things took a bit of a turn. Francisco said:

But I explain you the conditions, I’m submissive and I’ve got a foot fetish, so it would be for free in term of money, but I’m asking 2 services, licking sometimes your feet:) And then, I wear a chastity device, you might wear the key of the chastity device in a bracelet, so I’m not looking for sex, I’ve got the device:) Would you be interested in?

Clark — who told Legal Cheek she is currently applying for summer placements in solicitors firms — decided to tweet the messages (pictured below). Perhaps understandably, they’ve now gone totally viral, racking up over 4,000 retweets and 23,000 likes.

Did she expect this reaction? Clark told us:

I didn’t tweet it with the intention of it going viral — I’m not trying to embarrass the guy involved. I just thought it was a funny and odd interaction my friends would enjoy.

Funny and odd, yes. Then things got even weirder when the foot-loving landlord sent Clark a photograph of a “cb 3000” male chastity belt.

Mmm. The question on everyone’s lips, surely, is: will she be accepting the offer? To this, Clark said:

No, I don’t think I’m about the ‘cb 3000’ lifestyle.
