Woman aghast to learn the history of her couch – as people beg her to clean it

The online world has been revered as a source to find just about anything. It is a consumer’s playground and an entrepreneur’s ultimate tool. Thrifting has been as easy as it is in today’s world, and with the help of social media, people can sell just about anything. The only thing that has not changed when it comes to thrifting, is you can never quite tell where the item came from, or what the original owners did with it. One woman was left feeling “mortified” when she learned of the origin of a couch she bought on the Facebook marketplace.

She Bought a Thrifty Couch

Facebook Marketplace has made a name for itself amongst thrifters. There is an abundance of second-hand and refurbished items that you can buy for a fraction of the cost if you were to buy them new from the store. Mallory is a young woman who recently moved into a new apartment in Chicago. She had been on the hunt for a nifty couch to spruce up her new home, and she managed to find the perfect one.

The couch she bought is round in shape, with various sections that you can separate. There is a half-moon section with the backrest, then two other ottoman-like sections that surround a circle in the middle. Mallory was reportedly very excited about her purchase, seeing as she got it at such a bargain. The retail price for a couch like hers is about $4000 online, but Mallory managed to get it for $700.

Not long after she bought it, she had posted a video of it on TikTok, under the username, @malloryonthemoon, to see how many of her followers had seen around couch before. There were many remarks, but Mallory had not expected the answers that she got.

It Was a Swinger’s Couch

There was an abundance of amusing comments with contrasting opinions., but many people were convinced the coach had originally belonged to swingers. For those who do not know, a “swinger” is someone who likes to engage with more than one person, sexually. They are open to group sexual activities and tend to swap partners. The comments suggested that the couch was most likely well-used by the previous owners.

Her Viewers Shared Various Opinions

One commenter wrote: “The moment I saw this I thought of Austin Powers’ swinger couch.” This brings the hilarious movie to mind, but others were a little more concerned than amused. 

Another wrote: “Can I just say I’ve definitely seen this couch before and I’m begging you to get it cleaned.” They had sanitary concerns on behalf of Mallory because they were convinced they were on familiar terms with this couch and knew what the previous owners had done with it. 

Some shared the same concern, with one commenter writing: “Just from looking at the couch I already knew this was a swingers couch and thought she needs to get this cleaned before seeing the comments.” 

Not all of those who viewed the video on TikTok was against the couch having previously belonged to swingers.

Another one of Mallory’s followers commented: “Swingers really do have the best taste in furniture.” Showing less concern but more admiration.

Lastly, some were sharing a similar opinion, with one commenting: “The moment I saw this I thought of Austin Powers’ swinger couch. But girrrrrl, you found gold! Only $700!?”
