Have you ever taken a picture and double taken because it looks much ruder than you had intended? Well, it turns out that it’s a pretty common occurrence. All over the world, slight changes in camera angles and lighting are turning innocent snaps into some seriously inappropriate viewing.
It’s not just people who’ve got dirty minds who misinterpret these pictures, either. They look so far from reality that, to the unsuspecting viewer, they’re as X-rated as they appear to be. It’s only with a considerable amount of staring that the innocent truth becomes apparent.
Here are 16 snaps that look rude, but are actually perfectly innocent…
1. Look at the girth on that, um, sausage?!
Okay, admittedly the packaging of this giant sausage is a giveaway, but who knows? Maybe some poor animal lost its manhood in the most humiliating way possible, and now it’s mistakenly being sold as a German sausage. It’s enough to put me off Oktoberfest.
2. I wonder if this was advertised as a full body massage
Massages have long been associated with “happy endings”, and this ad is doing nothing to dispel this stereotype. Thankfully, however, it’s biologically impossible for a person to have a vagina on their neck, even if this “lady box” looks pretty convincing.
3. What a lovely pair of… knees!
We live in a world where female nipples are constantly censored, so it’s no wonder that this picture looks like full frontal nudity on a first glance.
4. Surely not?!
Female pubic hair is a contentious issue and many people opt for a “landing strip” instead of a full Brazilian, but this is just a close up of an eye!
Unintentionally sexual optical illusions frequently go viral on the internet. Whilst memes are all well and good, they’re created to make people chuckle, but these accidental NSFW pictures are a lot better because they’re so accidental.
