Online Auction Sellers submit Risqué "Reflective" Photos

Some Online Auction sellers have cleverly got around the "no-nudity rule" but submitting items that had nude reflections of themselves that are not so easily noticed at first. Most of these were intentional, but I wonder how many out there were "accidents"


One of the many trends spawned by the Internet is a phenomenon known as Reflectoporn — the deliberate posting of photographs of items with reflective surfaces to on-line auction sites, with those pictures "accidentally" capturing reflected images of the sellers/photographs in various states of undress.

The photograph that is generally credited with kicking off the Reflectoporn trend is the above-displayed image of a tea kettle, which was posted to, an Australian on-line auction site, in August 2001. That the posting of the revealing image was unlikely to have been accidental was confirmed by a trace of the seller's user ID, which showed him to be one of a group of people who were planting similar pictures on various web sites.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
