Sex with a prospect?

Has anyone done this before to try and get a deal across the finish line?

If youโ€™re asking if I have gotten boned on a deal before, then yes, yes I have.

No, I'm asking if you've ever tried to have sex with a prospect to win a deal.

Closers close, shooters shoot, revenue hides all sins and trust me, what happens in the bedroom is straight sinning.

I've personally never mixed business with pleasure, but I've seen it happen.ย  I was once at a company where a VP level leader was having the baby of the #2 clients key decision maker.ย

Went to a huge business conference in Vegas. Hotel lobbies are literally palatial, so hardly a public spectacle. But saw an attendee, make an indecent proposition to another attendee. Played the friend card, right up until he made his move, and it was like a scene out of the movies. . She was hitting him with her purse screaming โ€œIโ€™m married and so are you. You should be ashamed!โ€ repeatedly, in the lobby of MGM. Hilarious.

Yea but it actually caused them to cancel the deal because my product came up short against the competitors. Guessing the other sales rep had the same idea I did๐Ÿฅฒ

What is this fresh click bait?ย  No, the only one getting sexed with on any past deals has been me, and it was NON consensual.ย ย

the bigger the deal the higher the stakes. Not worth it. I've done it and when it goes bad, you will regret it. People are never who they pretend to be at work.ย

Back in my small business days I lost a deal to a rep at our main competitor who banged the prospect. Worse thing is she brought another rep out to also have sex with the guy to seal the deal. Guyโ€™s business closed down less than a year later so I guess thatโ€™s fitting.

This sounds more like the plot of a porno than a scenario that would play out IRL. Youโ€™re trying to close the deal and showing them โ€œyour giftโ€ is the thing thatโ€™s gonna get it done? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
