One enterprising twentysomething Brooklynite who is totally gunning for a role on Girls has come up with a creative solution to the problem of Park Slope’s sky-high rent prices. Instead of getting a new roommate when hers moved out, “Jennifer” decided to convert her spare room into a BDSM dungeon. It’s not Airbnb — it’s AirBDSM!

Jennifer” currently manages three dominatrices, collecting 40 percent of the $150 to 250 sum they charge per session. They find submissive clients (men only) on Backpage or FetLife, and vet them using Spokeo and social media before they’re allowed over to the makeshift dungeon. “Jennifer” earns about $3,000 a month, which is enough to afford her $2,100 per month three-bedroom Park Slope duplex. 

Unfortunately, her landlord recently terminated her lease (“I do have about 45 strange men coming in and out of the house every month”), so she’s looking for a new apartment where she can take her booming BDSM business. The place should be a two-bedroom in Park Slope for under $2,000, with enough room for crushing male egos with stilettos.
