A new and creepy crime is affecting Airbnb. Apparently hosts are setting up cameras to record their guests. Makes me sick just thinking about it.

I've seen documentaries where pervert landlords did this with tenants. With better technology available it must be getting easier and easier to do this kind of thing these days. It's really sickening.
I'm Orlf. It's a Norwegian name.

Is this really something to get one's knickers in a twist about?

I'm not sure I would care all that much even if I discovered that I was a "victim". We are all on camera all day, every day anyway so what's one more?

Ah but you don't perform private matters in public, one would expect that if your penchant for a bit of carnal delight complete with baked beans and pickled eggs, it could at least be carried out in the privacy of your rented accommodation, and not transmitted to your landlord for his own satisfaction

Honestly, even then I wouldn't really care.

Wouldn't you want royalties for the video of you on pornhub though? @k89bpa

I'm in no position to judge @kenralph :-D

I wonder if this would be seen as a problem in a more sexually liberal country or if people had more confidence generally in themselves.

Someone somewhere should do a study. :-)
