A mum-of-two was left red-faced after posting a toy mirror for sale on Facebook.
Sophie Baldwin, 25, was looking to clear out her house and decided offer an old toy mirror and dressing table for free on a local Facebook group.
But Sophie, who lives in Anerley, south east London, was left confused, however, after a series of naughty comments started to appear under the listing.
She tried to figure out what one man meant when he wrote he was surprised the image got through "Facebook's nudity filter".
She finally clocked on when she noticed the edges of the woollen house coat inside the pink edging of the mirror inadvertently created the shape of a vagina.
Now Sophie has jokingly suggested she sets up an OnlyFans page following the mishap.
"I was literally traumatised. I was cracking up," she explained. "I joked about setting up an OnlyFans page. I thought I'd keep the laughter in the air and continue with the comments.
"The memory of [the kids'] toys will be jaded by the filthy picture.
"It's light-hearted banter - it was so funny. I [won't forget it] for quite a while."
Sophie's daughters Erin, eight, and Amelia, four, had been lucky enough to get lots of toys for Christmas and their toybox was overflowing.
The girls had long grown out of their mini dresser, so Sophie decided to pass it on to someone else.
But she didn't expect her seemingly innocent picture would attract jokes about more private areas.
Sophie said: "I was decluttering the house.
"Someone commented on the post. I didn't take any notice of it because I didn't know how to take it.
"Everyone was like 'me too'. Someone else commented and it made it click in my mind that that's what it looks like.
"Someone else said it was education for the dads because there's a flower on the top.
"I didn't notice at all until a few comments down the line.
"It's the bottom of my dressing gown and I was wearing a pair of black leggings too. At least I was wearing something under it.
"At a time like this everyone needs a giggle.
"I just thought I might as well keep up the laughter."
The dresser has since gone to a new owner, but Sophie admits she won't forget the incident for a long time.
"It's gone to a new owner now. I'm glad she'll get to enjoy it."
