How to afford Park Slope: A BDSM dungeon in your place

Better him as an occasional guest than having a roommate, we guess?

Living on your own: it’s the dream of real and fictional NYC residents. Unless you’re ludicrously rich though, it’s a dream that’s gonna be out of reach. That being said, if you find yourself facing the prospect of having to replace a roommate so that you can make rent, maybe instead you should take a page out of one enterprising Park Slope resident’s book and just open up a BDSM dungeon in your apartment. It’s either that or living with more people who drink your beer when they come home drunk, so it’s up to you.

“Yennifer,” whose name was changed for privacy by Brooklyn Based, told the website that when her roommate left their $1,800/month three-bedroom in Park Slope, she decided that she would turn the extra space she had into a BDSM dungeon to rent out to dominatrixes and submissives to use. Instead of doing the whipping herself, Yennifer told the site that she manages three dominatrixes who use the space to work over their clients.

She compared her practice of hosting a rentable BDSM dungeon to using her apartment like an AirBnB, except for high-roller dude who want to get abused by women substituting for European tourists looking for a charming apartment to stay in while they search out the real Brooklyn. Which look, when you’re pulling down $3,000/month by taking 40% from what your dommes were making is a pretty good deal. The only downside is that she didn’t have her lease renewed, which she chalked up to her neighbors ratting her out to their landord, but that hasn’t dissuaded Yennifer from trying to live the roommate-free life going forward. She’s currently looking for a 2-bedroom that will give her some privacy, but if has some trouble reopening her dungeon, might we suggest trying opening a phone sex emporium at her place.
