In an ode to the nation’s ‘property porn’ obsession, the new advert shows the real fantasy millions of Brits have when they slip between the sheets at night. The 60-second video, comes after research found 60 perxcent of women admitted to indulging in a gentle flick of the phone to view properties they have no intention of living in. Men’s libido for “property porn”‘ is lower, but still, a rampant 43 percent go online to view. Raunchy TV shows like ‘The Undoing’ and ‘Industry’ have caused a stir with full-frontal nudity and debauched sex scenes.

But the new ad, starting this weekend for rental property site Mashroom, features nothing but decadent interiors – but it does feature one ‘nice knob’.

Giving a nod to the infamous M&S food campaign, a seductive voice guides viewers through a fantasy home scenario, inviting viewers to picture themselves in a luxury tub and ‘not that chode of a bath you have’.

Further findings in the research, conducted by OnePoll, found 37 percent keep their ‘property porn’ viewing habits under wraps and do not share what they have seen with friends or loved ones.

And three in 10 said regularly viewing property porn is simply a hobby for them, suggesting that it will be a life-long habit.

Another one in six (16 percent) Brits admitted to being addicted to swiping right on homes that well exceed their budget or current lifestyle.

But a third (33 percent) said the pandemic is to blame for them spending more time looking at properties.

The ad points out the most lusted after features property porn viewers look out for, including hardwood floors, the perfect ceiling rose, and a red hot aga.

Stepan Dobrovolskiy, CEO of Mashroom, said: “There doesn’t have to be a time and a place anymore for checking out desirable homes.

“Long gone are the days of having to stand at estate agent windows or looking at the property sections of newspapers and magazines.

“Tenants can scan homes at the touch of a button at a time which suits them and who are we to judge when and where that perfect time is.

“As well as being good for landlords and tenants it’s also good for anyone who dreams of moving anywhere in the world.

“Property is a rapidly changing market and searching for homes is a form of escapism and entertainment as well these days.”

The full script:

No need to delete the history, when you’re browsing incognito mode. And the other half is asleep, so a hard scroll and a flick through a gallery is practically harmless at this hour.

Oh yes, this one will do for tonight. Ooh yeah.

No more squeezing your mini in, when you can have a fat parking space right outside the front door. Swipe left on that dream.

Exposed features unblemished by woodchip, and hard, hardwood floor? What would the neighbours say?

Oh my, it’s an original Victorian ceiling rose. (mmmmm) You could look at that all day.

Can you feel the heat off that Aga? You wouldn’t stay wet for long with that in the kitchen.

But hang on, maybe you do want to foam up a little? Oh a freestanding tub. Curves. Deep and wide. Not like that chode of a bath you have. “I’ll have what she’s having”, you think.

Oh! Lovely knob.
