Google Maps Street View: Cameras capture couple in risqué position on Majorca beach

Google Maps Street View was developed in 2007, mostly as a way of helping people with directions. The app allows users to zoom in from a bird-eye-view traditional map right down to street level to get an up-close look at the surroundings.

However, while most holidaymakers don’t case much of a scene, it seems two sunbathers caused quite a stir.

Positioned towards the back of the beach a couple can be seen laying in front of a rope fence, separating the sand from the grasslands behind.

Upon this fence, items of clothes can be seen hanging.

A blue shirt, strewn across the rope appears to flap in the breeze, meanwhile, a tan coloured jacket can be seen hanging from the top of a wooden fence post.

The couple, however, are both completely free from all clothing.

It seems the duo were set on side-stepping any tan lines by basking completely nude in the sun.

Under Google Map’s privacy policy, nudity is not allowed.

Therefore the tech giant has taken steps to try and omit any risqué scenes from its images.

As a result, the sunbathing couple has had their entire bodies covered by a blur.

All that can be seen are their extremities, with the main bulk of their bodies hidden.

According to Google’s privacy policy: “We don’t allow sexually explicit content.”

It adds: “Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps.

“We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.”
