WHEN sell­ing items on­line, it’s a good idea to pho­to­graph your goods from all an­gles and to en­sure that the light­ing is bright to make ev­ery de­tail stand out…

Un­for­tu­nately, Clive and Joanne Hunger­ford showed off their own goods in rather too much de­tail when they tried to sell their gar­den swing seat on eBay.

For the Wolver­hamp­ton pair in­cluded a snap of them­selves HALF NAKED on the striped seat – and the photo got the ad promptly banned by site ad­min­is­tra­tors.

But not be­fore the seat had amassed a stag­ger­ing 2,356 ‘ watch­ers’!

Clive, 57, said last night: “It was our first time sell­ing on eBay. A friend told us it was a good idea to make your item stand out; there are hun­dreds of gar­den seats for sale and we wanted to make an im­pact.


“As we’re both swingers, we of­ten pose naked on con­tact sites so we de­cided to make our ad stand out. I took my pants off and Joanne wore her best boob­sout lacy num­ber.

“We cer­tainly made an im­pact but then the ad was taken down.

“In the end, we got £ 30 for the seat flog­ging it via a card in the newsagent’s win­dow. Ob­vi­ously we didn’t use the nude pic­ture. Kid­dies go in the newsagent for sweets and pop­pers.”

A glance at the eBay im­age guide­lines makes no spe­cific men­tion of sell­ers pos­ing nude with their item for sale, though the over­view of guide­lines for adult ma­te­rial states: “Sex­u­al­ly­ori­ented adult ma­te­rial is meant for peo­ple who are 18 years and older.

“We al­low the sale of this ma­te­rial, but you can only list these items in the Ev­ery­thing Else > Adult Only cat­e­gory.

“Nu­dity, de­fined as ‘ male/ fe­male gen­i­talia, anus, or fe­male breasts where the are­ola or nipple is vis­i­ble’ is re­stricted.”

But a source said: “We would have thought that was com­mon sense not to pose with your cock out on a swing seat.” TAKEN DOWN: The ad that Clive posted on eBay DAR­ING: Clive and Joanne thought the naked ad­vert would get a good re­sponse for their swing
