People Are Confused By This Weirdly Sexual New York Apartment Listing
A decent one-bed apartment in New York might be a tough thing to come by, but it seems the realtors of this property wanted to go the extra mile to make it stand out and clinch some new tenants - and they appear to have the dream candidates in mind.
The original listing for a rental in the city has gone viral due to its unusually sexual tone, describing the pad as the ideal place to invite "dutty guests" to "romp & play, all night".
A screenshot of the ad was shared on Reddit this week, with the listing reading: "A sexy king-size one bedroom where you'll find four, very large closets in which you can hide from your very, naughty playmate.
"And should you be lucky enough to be found, the two of you can retreat to the king-size bedroom where you both can romp & play, all night.
"Tired of playing with only the two of you? Well then, invite many more dutty guests to partake in communal games, held in your stadium-sized living room.
"However, be mindful not to let your guests stay past dawn though, else they'll be sure to be beamed at by glaring sunlight; not good for the walk of shame."
For those who are interested in this kinky little flat, it'll cost you a cool $2,500 (£1,912) per month - in other words, you're going to need your "naughty playmate" to chip in.

The online community certainly saw the funny side, with one commenter writing on Reddit: "I guess the adjectives of 'charming,' 'bathed in sunlight' and 'cozy' are done."
Another wrote: "Hmmm I guess they never read the NYC Safer Sex and COVID-19 guidelines."
A third suggested that the listing was posted as a joke: "Maybe one of the agents sent it to another as a joke, and they pasted it before actually reading it.
"Otherwise, I think I'd be too nervous of what a black light would find to rent that place!"
Despite the lighthearted tone, the original listing has since been removed and edited with a much more standard description:
"Stadium-sized living room, 4 spacious closets, A kitchen you can actually cook and eat in, Southern and Eastern windows, all about, Cheap. That's all, folks."
