Origins:   Sometimes we inadvertently leave behind tell-tale signs of having engaged in activities we'd rather other people not know about. In some cases we'd rather other people not know because those activities are illegal (or at least against the rules of wherever we happen to be), and in some cases it's because those activities are rather private matters we'd feel embarrassed about disclosing publicly.

The photograph shown above is a marevelously humorous example of the latter category. We don't know the origins of this picture, but it looks to be a posed one rather than a genuinely accidental capturing of the aftermath of a quickie on a convenient car hood — the outlines are too sharp (even the most reserved of lovers generally move around at least a little bit), and the larger version of the picture appears to show that the female who 'posed' for the imprint was still wearing pants.
