Is it balls? Is it a vagina? Is it balls in front of a vagina? These are the questions the internet is asking after Airbnb revealed its new logo to the world in a puzzling webcast today.
The “Bélo” (NOT MAKING THIS UP), as Airbnb refers to the mark “internally” (NOT MAKING THIS UP), is supposed to reflect the “hierarchy of decisions” that users make when booking a place to stay. But for most of us, it just reflects genitalia.
Okay yes and balls? I challenge you to name a sexual area not evoked by the Airbnb logo http://t.co/ptp3YUHM7j— Nitasha Tiku (@nitashatiku) July 16, 2014

The new Airbnb logo is like the FedEx logo, except the hidden arrow is a penis and not hidden pic.twitter.com/OgnwZ8WxQi— Neetzan Zimmerman (@neetzan) July 16, 2014

So which genitalia-made-for-sharing do you see, sexually frustrated internet user? Or maybe it’s just a hug, ever think about that?
