Over the summer I wrote about a woman meeting a guy on Tinder, inviting him back to the Hyatt Regency, and then tasing him. As I noted at the time,
I’ve been together with my wife for almost 20 years. But from what I can remember of my dating life, I was metarational enough to realize that if a woman I’d just met invited me up to her room after 30 minutes in the lobby of a Hyatt Regency, in the morning without any alcohol involved, we weren’t going there for the reason I hoped we were going there.
Little did I realize that the Hyatt Regency Boston has apparently become notorious as a hub for prostitution, and the tasering incident prompted the property to do something about it after “at least 70 incidents involving sex for pay at the hotel over the past six months” according to the Boston police department in a licensing hearing.
A manager at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Avenue de Lafayette says he’s stepped up security over the past two months following two incidents, one in which a man said he was tasered and robbed by a woman he’d hooked up with over Tinder, the other in which a particularly dexterous prostitute managed to remove $4,000 in cash from a man’s wallet even as she performed fellatio on him.

The latter incident with ‘realsexbarbie’ as she’s known on the Cash App is most striking for its pure dexterity because “the only time [the wallet] had been out of his reach – but within hers – was during the act itself.” In order to minimize future incidents they’ve hired the security director away from the Sheraton Boston and added a second night guard to their staff.
