“Butt Selfies”! New Instagram Trend Casts A “Moon” Over Nature! These #CheekyExploits Are “Bumming” Out Law Enforcement!

Welcome To The Great Outdoors!

Imagine seeing this incredible sight one night – the moon shimmering over a tropical island…it’s one of the reasons everyone is flocking back to the great outdoors…but perhaps they misunderstood what a “moon” shot was all about:

Now THAT’s A Look At Nature!

It’s the latest social media craze: “mooning” beautiful locations around the world! A website told the story of kids around the world who are capturing nature in the most revealing way!

With shows like “Naked & Afraid” showing many a bare backside, the idea of “mooning” nature has become the new internet trend…

I guess it was the natural progression of nature – I mean, we’ve had “mooning” for decades now, and with social media, the options to share these whimsical moments are now infinite.

However, the above photo has created a controversy, as it was taken in New Zealand at a location considered sacred…here is that story:


One website specializing in these “moonshots” is called CheekyExploits, and that’s exactly what it is: bare bottomed pictures taken all around the world – and it has over 215,000 followers on Instagram!

You can find many more – all highlighting funny pictures of bare butts against beautiful backdrops…

The Empire Strikes Back!

As with any social trend that thumbs its nose at society, there is always a response from the establishment.

There has already been pushback from social media as well as traditional law enforcement. The picture above is from a South Africa post that got a lot of attention…and an immediate response from South African police, who released this warning to anyone thinking of “mooning” in their country:

“The law forbids such displays of public indecency and individuals could also find themselves at odds with the code of conduct at hotels.

“What starts out as a little fun could end with a public or private prosecution. It is also inadvisable [to post] semi-nude images on social media as these can be used by others – out of context. “

There are shots that are taken way out in nature, and some that are done as an obvious dare – like this one: you NEVER wanted to see the Golden Gate bridge this way, did you?

Oh my, is all I can say. OH MY.

In fact, you can find a ton of “moon shots” of solo men, solo women, groups of men and women together and separate – it just never ends:

While these sites are being done by a wide variety of people – and a wide variety of quality, my friend Sara Underwood has been taking beautifully stylized photos in nature and posting them on her Instagram account for years now:

Sara currently has 7.9 MILLION followers, and these professional photo shoots enhance nature’s beauty…

Check her instagram site out here:


Of course, while Sara worked for me at G4, she willingly donned a bacon bikini for a comedy sketch:

This is a great picture, and I will always appreciate that Sara did that for us – and it helped me discover another funny social media trend:

Celebrities Eating Food!

Yes, there are websites that share pics of celebrities – not wearing food like Sara, but just eating it!

Check out my story, which includes a classic shot of Robert Plant eating a VERY MESSY ice cream cone!


Let me know what you think of this latest “butt baring” trend on social media!

  1. Everyone loves a butt selfie.

  2. I like those selfies from the young ladies, John. As for the men, those I could do without. And as for my own, that’s never going to appear online, trust me. I think Vinnieh would like this post.
    Best wishes, Pete.
