Airbnb User Says Man Who Rented His Home Threw ‘Overweight Orgy,' Trashed The Place

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A New Yorker who rented out his home on Airbnb.com returned to discover the renter allegedly throwing a sex party featuring “Big Beautiful Women.”

Ari Teman, 31, says he rented out his apartment over the weekend while he would be out of town. He gave his keys to David Carter, 32, and stepped out to dinner. When he returned to his apartment to get his luggage, Teman found a half-dozen nearly-nude overweight people moving his furniture around, throwing some of it in the hallway.

“There was a huge posse of large men and women in hip-hop attire looking like they got tossed from a club, hanging out in front,” he said.

Carter was throwing a “BBW Panty Raid Party.” While he rented the apartment for $300 a night through Airbnb, he was charging a $20 cover for each guest.

Teman said Carter was a nervous wreck over being caught.

“This guy had a look of horror on his face,” Teman said. “He didn’t expect to see me for a few days. He said, ‘They shut us down, man, they’re shutting it down.’”

There was a bag of condoms and liquor strewn across the floor, he said.

“I caught them taking my white sofa out into the backyard alley,” he said. “You assume most people have basic human decency and won’t destroy your stuff.”

The damage to his belongings was so extensive, Teman’s been living in a hotel since the March 9th incident.

Airbnb says that “problems for hosts and guests are incredibly rare, but when they happen, we try to help make things right.”

The website agreed to pay Teman $23,817 to cover the damages to his home. Teman estimated the damage was more like $67,000.

“I just don’t want to touch anything in there,” Teman said. “I threw sheets all over everything.”

Carter told the New York Post the he didn’t throw an orgy.

“I had six people, friends and family,” Carter said. “He is making a big to-do because he is being evicted.”

He says he booked the apartment as a place for his in-laws to stay while in town for a wedding.

If the flier for the party, found online, is any indication, this is the second “Panty Raid Party” he’s thrown.

“He had a verified account and he seemed legit,” Teman said. “He had three positive reviews and so I approved the deal.”

“I was not arrested. I did nothing wrong,” Carter told The Post.
