Fake your pregnancy and lock him in....

Holy Cow..... I guess there is a market for everything:

http://www.inquisitr.com/931471/positive-pregnancy-tests-craigslist/

There’s supposedly a market for positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist. Both The Huffington Post and Salon ran stories this weekend claiming that pregnant women were picking up extra money on Craigslist by selling the pregnancy tests.

As a result, any number of people believed the stories and tweeted or retweeted them on Twitter as the stone cold truth.

But is it true? I immediately went to my local New Orleans Craigslist. At the time I checked, not even one person in my city was trying to sell this supposed service. That seems odd if there’s really any money to be made.

After all, peeing on a stick isn’t a tough job. And $25 for nothing is still $25 for nothing. So you figure if there was a market for it, then somebody might actually be doing it.

The Huffington Post story seems to be a classic case of overstating the problem. Their writer claims that a woman in New York originally offered to sell positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist for $25 in May, setting up a stream of copycats.

But the stream of copycats actually seems to be a trickle. The media reports on the positive pregnancy tests seem to always quote the same three or four ads.

I did find a current ad in the Philadelphia Craigslist, so there are indeed some women out there advertising this service:

“I am pregnant and am willing to take a pregnancy test for you that will be positive. Use it however you like no questions no judgments. I will take test right before you pick up. I will also be willing to bottle my urine if you need to seal the deal that way.”

Salon said that the fake positive pregnancy tests are likely being used to prank dirty dog boyfriends by giving them a bad moment. I suppose they’re right.

It seems like that’s the only thing they could be good for.

HuffPo suggested that they could be used to trick boyfriends into getting married, which only suggests that their writer has missed the last four decades. Nobody around here is getting married until they actually see the baby — and usually not even then.

I won’t say that it’s a 100 percent hoax that positive pregnancy tests are being sold on Craigslist. A few women are in fact trying to sell these things. But I have no evidence that anyone much is buying. Let me know if you do.

    I am actually in shock that people would sell their positive "P"sticks to help others trap people or the fact that craigslist lets them sell it.

    oh thats just wrong now on the other hand I would be more than glad to sell my pee especially all that HCG I had earlier in the pregnancy. It's almost pure profit if you think about it.

    I am shocked at how desperate people can be that they step down to this level.

    Oh dear. WTF? I have always found it so hilarious how women on television fake pregnancies with baby bump padding and somehow keep their men from touching their bellies for months and/or attending doctor's appointments. This scenario is not realistic.

    They just had an episode of "What Would You Do?" about this very topic. It was pretty funny to see the reactions. :laugh:
  • that's both gross and appalling! Maybe those buying it should buy better personalities....

    Exactly. It is crazy for someone to think that a pregnancy will somehow fix a troubled relationship. That makes no sense.

    Actually, I know someone who may have done this. Twice. "Doctor visits" included. She probably learned it from one of those cheesy television fake pregnancies though.

    ive never understood that either...it seems it would be hard to fake a pregnancy there are some pretty obvious changes that go on in your body. Poor guy gets the fake pregnancy but non of the benefits like the fabulous booty expansion or the boobie expansion.

    they must be great liars
