Reflectoporn

Reflectoporn is a term used to describe a form of exhibitionism[1] in which a man or woman strips and then takes a photograph of an object with a reflective surface in such a way that his or her naked body can be seen in the reflection. The photograph is then posted in a public forum. The instance generally credited with starting the trend involved a man selling a kettle on eBay, featuring a photograph where his naked body is clearly visible[2]. Other examples followed [3] [4] [5], and the specific term "reflectoporn" was eventually coined by Chris Stevens of Internet Magazine[6].
