LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s amazing what total strangers are willing to do for casual sex.

That’s what Henry Russell learned while writing his new book, Craigslist Casual Encounters: The Hilarious And Disturbing World Of Seeking Sex Online (Haha Publishing).

Russell wrote hundreds of fake ads for the “Casual Encounters” section of Craigslist hoping to get back wacky responses.

It worked.

For every ad he posted – especially “women seeking men” ones – he’d get 30 to 100 messages from horny dudes willing to do anything for a one-night stand.

About 300 men reached out after Russell claimed to be a woman looking to get off by punching a guy in the face.

Several weird nibbles came in for an ad offering sex with a blow-up doll.

Russell was most surprised at how many people replied to the posts using their work emails, including lawyers and professors.

One demented doctor even asked Russell if he could “run sharp knives” all over his body.
