Want to make a couple extra bucks by doing something easy?
Hundreds of thousands have taken up that offer over the past year using Airbnb, hosting others at their place. A few of those people have mistakenly allowed others to make a few easy bucks in another profession . . . prostitution.
The New York Post recently reported that “One escort service is even saving a bundle by renting Airbnb apartments instead of hotel rooms for clients’ quickies, says a 21-year-old call girl who works for the illicit business.” Recently, Jessica Penzari, a New York publicist found a rude awakening. “When she returned, Penzari was shocked to find telltale remnants including baby wipes and “at least 10 condoms.”
Not only are people renting places on Airbnb for prostitution, but they’re also hosting orgies at rented pads.
Just last month comedian Ari Teman walked in on an eye-opening scene. “Teman, 31, used the popular renting website Airbnb to lease his apartment for a couple of days to a man who claimed to be using the pad to host some wedding guests. But he got the shock of his life Friday night when he returned home to pick up some luggage in time to find building management shutting down a rowdy sex party featuring “Big Beautiful Women.”
While we hate the thought of people’s places being used for these illicit acts, and we know that Airbnb are working diligently to please the owners, we wanted to share some quick ways for Airbnb hosts/guest to have more transparency and confidence about one another by using REPP.
