Amateur exhibitionists are using internet auction technology to show off their perky privates to unsuspecting E-Bay browsing consumers in a practice known as Reflectoporn.

This mischievous group of Reflectoporn e-flashers are a clandestine bunch, concealing images of their naked forms in the reflections of everyday items up for auction.

A nude man reflected in a 1965 Sears Harmony guitar; the surreal likeness of a stately matron's elongated breasts on the surface of a vintage toaster; a wobbly dripping penis on a silver soup spoon--stuff like that.

Although any below average hornball can set up his or her own lap cam and wait to see who bites, that doesn't seem to be enough for the sexual histrionics of the Reflectoporn set, who prefer to sneak up on their intended victims, unannounced.

Internet Magazine technology writer Chris Stevens told a Daily Record reporter recently, "There's no easier way to expose your naked body to millions of people worldwide without leaving your room. It's the ultimate act of self-expression for a wired generation."

According to an E-Bay spokesman, "We have numerous listing policies which detail items that cannot be sold on the site... This includes any material that depicts, in actual or simulated form, or explicitly describes, in a predominantly sexual context, human genitalia. The same applies to any act of natural or unnatural sexual intercourse, any act of sadism or masochism, or any other erotic subject directly related to the foregoing. If we become aware of any item listed for sale on the site that breaches this policy, it will be removed."

"They (eBay) haven't got the manpower to check every auction," Stevens countered, adding, "There's nothing they can do to stop you (from) photographing your chubby, naked body reflected in a chrome kettle or toaster."

With 16 million items listed on eBay, Stevens seems to have a point. Although anyone caught trying to show their parts on this fine auction site will be banned, sooner or later a photo of an antique harmonica with a corn-hole reflected on its surface (or other great Reflectoporn ideas) will skulk through, and besmirch the sparkling image of a great American institution.
