Overshare culture taken to new level with #AfterSex selfies
Published 02/04/2014 | 11:45
The latest TMI trend is the #AfterSex selfie - where couples Instagram a picture of themselves post-coitus.
Young couples have taken to sharing pictures of themselves immediately following intercourse and posting them to Instagram.
The trend, which mostly consists of selfies but features some tripod photographs, offers an unsettling insight into the private lives of strangers.
Worringly, many of the couples that have engaged in the trend appear to be quite young.
See our gallery of the 'safe for work' images below.
Of course, many Twitter users have taken to mocking the ridiculous trend.
