    Airbnbs used as 'pop-up brothels' in south-east England.

    Prostitutes doing deals on Airbnb.

    Prostitutes are breaking the law by sharing properties from short-term rental websites such as Airbnb, BBC South East has found.

    Buying and selling sex is not illegal in the UK but keeping a brothel - more than one sex worker in a property - is.

    Sex worker Charlotte Rose said Airbnbs were cheaper and accessible, and rentals were shared for safety.

    Airbnb said it did not condone such behaviour.

    A group of MPs has launched an urgent inquiry into pop-up brothels.

    Well, it had to eventually happen didn't it ?

    HERE is what Airbnb is supposed to be used for.

    Quite simply, Airbnb should not be allowed to do this.

    True Zathrus, but just like hotel rooms in the past have been used for prostitution, and it is hard to find out which of these rooms are being used by prostitutes, the use of Airbnb for the same purpose will be hard to nail down too.

    I am sure that the receptionists at every hotel know what their rooms are being used for, and using the same argument, I am sure that Airbnb will know about this in their properties too.

    If they are generating enough revenue by allowing prostitutes to use their properties to ply their trade then I would not be a bit surprised if they might avert their eyes to the problem.
