Rent A Stranger’s Bathroom For 5 Minutes With Airpnp

The legend goes that the founders of Airbnb set out an air mattress in their living room and welcomed guests, and that’s where the site comes from. Staying in a stranger’s home can be like a bed and breakfast, often without the breakfast. What about when you want to take a crap instead of a nap, though. Is there somewhere you can pay a nominal fee to strangers to rent out a different room of their home?

Yes. There’s Airpnp, which we thought could not possibly be a serious website until we learned that it’s based in New Orleans, and this is Mardi Gras week. Of course. Both P’s in the name stand for pretty much what you’d guess, and potential hosts for your next bowel movement post photos and describe the amenities of their spots just like Airbnb hosts do. Jacuzzi? Free beer? A friend to keep you company in the can? The commode of your dreams awaits, maybe.

Of course, the site is new, so selections are quite limited. We’ll try to hold it until the mobile app comes out.

    Just made sure you don’t confuse the two services.

    “Worst guest ever. Would not accept again.”

    Actually, for a transgender person, if they advertised as trans* friendly this could solve a lot of problems.

    i can see this also being very popular with pregnant women and people with medically needy bladders.

      i’ve explored several locations and it’s… interesting.
      one in brooklyn is free but only if you allow yourself to be photographed for a blog afterwards.
      one in toronto offers toilet use with potential feline companionship for $2 or a shower for $5.
      there are bunches in belgium, which are distinguished by whether they are available to men, women or both.
      makes sense that it’s so popular in europe though, since it’s common to pay to pee there
