Instagram Model Causes Controversy With 'Degrading' Naked Picture Of His Girlfriend
A pair of models have courted criticism online after posting a pretty daring naked selfie online.
Twenty-three-year-old Hawaiian model Jay Alvarrez shared the racy photograph of himself and his girlfriend, 28-year-old Italian Valentina Fradegrada, with his 6.3 million followers on Instagram last Friday.
The first thing you'll notice is that neither of them have got any clothes on. The second thing you'll notice is that only the couple's hands are protecting Valentina's privates.
So far, so normal when it comes to models on Instagram, right?
People have been really critical of the pair - particularly Jay - online. A lot of the problems seem to come from the caption that he put on the picture which, to be fair, isn't great.
Everyone in the picture seems to be pretty happy and there is no suggestion that either party isn't up for it - however, Alvarrez then backed up the picture by saying: "I wish you were my big toe so I could bang you on every piece of furniture in my house."
That seems to be what has angered some people.
It's worth pointing out that not everyone is so upset about it. The picture quickly got up to 616,000 likes. Those are decent numbers.

However, one online observer said that Jay's caption was 'degrading'.
They said: "Simply degrading picture with a degrading caption."
Another added: "This is honestly disgusting and I feel so sorry for this girl,"
A third commented: "Sad how you brag this woman as an object. Sadder how she doesn't know her value."
As for the pair, they seem to find the whole thing quite amusing. Valentina herself actually commented on the picture with a string of crying with laughter and devil face emojis.
In the parlance of our time, that's a pretty strong endorsement - I think?
As for Jay himself, he then updated the caption - not to change the original sentiment, he left that in - to reflect his disbelief at the storm caused by the picture.
Well, if you will post pictures of this nature, people are going to get stuck in, mate. That's just how it works.
Jay wrote: "I can't believe anyone got offended by this, next time I'll lost [we'll assume he meant post] the video."
Pretty sure that wouldn't be allowed on Instagram, given what you can and can't post on the photo sharing site.
Either way, as long as everyone consented to the picture and is happy with the caption, it's probably fine. That won't stop people on the internet getting involved though, will it?
