It may amuse you to know that when I visited Buenos Aires in 2013 for the specific purpose of dancing tango one of the rules of the house I stayed in was that men one did not "know well" were not to be brought home - for precisely this reason. There are many such houses, accommodating foreign dancers, and I was told by my hostess that there are people who use that very method to get inside.

Hi, Ms. H.,

I thought you and your readers might enjoy some more details in the case of the Tango Burglar and the plight of Gertrude Pike: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Shields-3475 . Juicy stuff! I feel so sorry for her.

Cheers!

Oops -- sorry, s/b "Hi, Susan,"...
