Brazilian professional soccer player Neymar Jr. just teased his fans with a very sexy pic on Instagram. The 26-year-old plays as a forward for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team. The steamy snap was shared to his roughly 90 million followers on Instagram.
Neymar took to Instagram yesterday, February 13, to share the X-rated snap which was taken as part of photographer Mario Testino’s “Towel Series.” The pic shows the professional footballer posing nude with nothing but a towel covering his goods.
Alongside the photo, he wrote: “Mario Testino Towel Series no. 150.”
You may have recently heard the name Mario Testino, but not for a very good reason. In January, Testino was accused of sexual misconduct by former assistants and models.
“Sexual harassment was a constant reality,” said Roman Barrett, an assistant to Testino in the late ’90s who said the photographer “rubbed up against his leg with an erection and masturbated in front of him.”
“He misbehaved in hotel rooms, the backs of cars and on first-class flights,” he said. “Then things would go back to normal, and that made you feel gaslighted.”
Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour responded to the allegations made against Testino. She said:
Today, allegations have been made against Bruce Weber and Mario Testino, stories that have been hard to hear and heartbreaking to confront. Both are personal friends of mine who have made extraordinary contributions to Vogue and many other titles at Condé Nast over the years, and both have issued objections or denials to what has emerged. I believe strongly in the value of remorse and forgiveness, but I take the allegations very seriously, and we at Condé Nast have decided to put our working relationship with both photographers on hold for the foreseeable future.
But back to Neymar, who has actually been an outspoken ally for the LGBT community even though he’s straight. In this video, he says: “On the field, there’s no place for discrimination or prejudice, just the art of playing.”
