For liability reasons, I've always had a voice recorder behind my bed to record the audio of all my sexual encounters with women. I've had a lot of online hookups and reading about all the horrible stories of false rape accusations has me taking precautions to protect myself. This week, it paid off.
Here's the story.
This one girl I met through Bumble was throwing out suspicious signs. She was a 20-year-old single mom and steered our initial conversation to my career. She definitely seemed like she was looking for a sugar daddy and her profile said she "wanted a guy who has his life together and would treat her like a princess". She drove in from a town over an hour away to do drinks with me so I knew that she was planning on staying the night.
Now for some background about myself, I'm finishing up my master's degree, and in about a month, I'll be permanently leaving the city I currently live in to start medical school in another state. I didn't mention this fact to her until after we'd already had sex because I knew it would throw everything off. I ended up casually mentioned this to her the morning after, and she predictably flipped out. She started screaming about how she was drunk the night before and I took advantage of her.
I kept my cool and didn't mention anything about the recording device. Last thing I needed was for her to fuck with it in any way. I just needed her to keep talking to dig herself into a hole. Note that the recorder was still recording from last night so everything she was saying during her tantrum was all on tape. I let her do most of the talking, but I steered the conversation to her basically admitting that she wanted to have sex the night before but was now upset about it because she found out I was leaving. Bingo.
No accusations yet, but I'm confident I'll be covered if, on the off chance, she does try. Something gives me the feeling she's been pumped and dumped before so this can't be all too new for her :)
Funny part about all this is that I'm broke as hell. I'd be a terrible sugar daddy right now because I won't be making any real money until I'm almost 30.
Here are details about how I do it.
I purchased a dedicated voice recorder and set it behind my printer on the table next to my bed. The one I use looks like this, but there are plenty of other ones that are cheaper and have better microphones. Mine's almost 10 years old at this point so I'm sure there's something better out there by now, even though audio recording technology probably hasn't changed much.
I have a 64GB SD card which is enough for 1000+ hours of recording. I simply set the recorder to record before I go out and let it run throughout the night. The battery life is almost 24 hours so doing this isn't an issue. If you have one with lower battery life, get a cheap external USB battery pack which can extend the battery life of the recorder to days/over a week.
Using a phone/computer for recording is also an option but you'll likely need a special external microphone because the microphones built into these devices aren't built for capturing audio in a room.
When things are getting hot and heavy, I say in a joking way that the girl has to ask for it nicely if she wants my dick. This is both sexy for her and establishes consent on the recording. The situation doesn't always lead to this, but I make an effort to usually do this.
It's much better if you live in a one-party recording consent state. These states require that only one person in the conversation knows that a recording is taking place for it to be legally admissible. Other states are two-party states and require that both parties are aware if a recording is taking place. Even if you live in a two-party state, I still suggest you make a recording because it can't hurt. It won't be admissible in court, but it'll be a useful tool to deter the girl if she tries pulling something later. If you live in a two-party consent state, do not reveal that you have a recording to her over any traceable means. Only mention it or play it for her in person after you've made a copy for safekeeping. As far as I know, it's a felony if you record a conversation without the other person's knowledge in a two-party consent state.
After having sex, think of a reason to have the girl send you a text message later in the day. I usually feign interest in whatever pet she has and tell her to send me a picture when she gets home. This provides more physical proof that we were on good terms after having sex.
In retrospect, I could have avoided all this drama if I'd kept my dick in my pants and not banged a gold-digger, regardless of how attractive she was.
