I am a 26 year old young woman on my first bike tour and wanted to get some feedback from other young women about their experiences on WarmShowers. I've had many wonderful hosts on this tour who I will remember forever, but also two very negative experiences where I had to flee from hosts in a hurry. In the first case I arrived and the host was drunk, pressuring me to drink alcohol, and asked me to sleep in his bed with him. I left in the first hour without ever unpacking my bags and slept in the park instead. The second kept staring at my chest, and I came home to my belongings thrown in the yard while he stood over me yelling in his underwear that I was abusive and a liar since I hadn't spent enough time with him that day (?). For the second one, I was honestly scared for my safety and rode away as fast as I could, since this was some seriously aggressive and bizarre behaviour. Both of these hosts had dozens of positive reviews from other guests and hosts and had been active in the community for a long time, but it seems as a young woman, positive reviews are not enough to protect you from sexual harassment and intimidation.
Is this a common occurrence? I am surprised to have such harrowing experiences with well-reviewed hosts, and I'm wondering if my experiences are common among solo woman riders specifically.
Also, is there a way to block or report users? The second host is sending me unsolicited text messages calling me names and I'm afraid he will do this on the WarmShowers messaging too.
