Airbnb Doing What It Can To Stop Orgies From Happening In Your Home, OK?

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky is working really hard to make sure that people aren't throwing orgies in your home.

In an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo News, Chesky revealed that the site has banned thousands of Airbnb members from the community for throwing wild parties, trashing apartments, or even turning apartments into temporary brothels.

Surprisingly, the bad press doesn't seem to be hurting the company. TechCrunch reports Airbnb remains popular among investors and continues to grow, particularly in Europe.

Chesky told Couric he'd like to move beyond finding members a place to stay and plans to focus on booking activities and other aspects of the hospitality world. These future plans won't work if customers are too afraid to list their homes on the site.

But, as Chesky assured Couric, the site has been working tirelessly to stop those problems, doing everything from removing members, to implementing insurance policies, to hiring 100 employees to ensure that the company is always focused on trust and safety.

Will it be enough? That remains to be seen. And with Airbnb's other concerns (like violating "illegal hotel" laws in cities like New York) only time will tell whether Chesky's startup will maintain the steady growth it's enjoyed thus far.
