What makes this legend particularly interesting from a folkloric standpoint is its age — tales of secretly-filmed sexual encounters antedate the development of the home video market by several decades.

Between supers, landlords, doormen, roommates, house cleaners, dog walkers, nannies, pet sitters and assorted friends and neighbors, a surprisingly large number of people may very well have keys to an apartment you're renting or Airbnb-ing. But consider the case of Aksana Kuzmitskaya, a young woman who claims her former landlords installed secret cameras in her bedroom and bathroom, filming her private life on 70-odd occasions.
Which means there are that many people who could plant a hidden camera in your bookcase and secretly record your every move for their own sick pleasure. In exchange for cleaning apartments at their Upper West Side building, they had given her room and board.
“If you have pets or roommates, people become oblivious to things moving around,” says Morris, who jokes that someone could install a camera on his own rather messy desk and he’d never know it.
