Real Estate Porn: Your Home as Codpiece

by Alex Stenback on June 9, 2005

"Come on, don’t be coy, you know you want it. You want it bad. You clipped the ad out of the back of the newspaper with shaking, sweaty hands. It went something like this: "Close-in location, 4 br, 3 full ba plus 1/2 , fam rm w/cath clng, hdwd flrs thruout, nu kitchen w/Sub-Zero and Vkng, granite tops, full bsmt f/ home thtr, deck, 1/2 acre lot, good schools, curb appeal, must see to believe!"

While we have yet to hear any tales of yearning homeowners mailing off their ears for a unit in the latest condo development, the Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson argues that real estate has now supplanted our other, um, more prurient interests.

But hey, obsessions, even the unhealthy sort, can be fun – and there’s even a flickr tag for house porn.  Go ahead, shut your office door, browse a little, everbody will just think you are on an important call. You deserve it.
