Rock legend and founding member of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe Tommy Lee has treated the world to a front row seat to one of his biggest acts courtesy of a heaps risqué Instagram post- his dick. Casually captioned with the carefree “Ooooopppsss”.

It seems that the former beau of Pamela Anderson has never read the terms and conditions of the social media app because this evening he happily shared a body shot that went all the way down and just kept on going. Honestly, it just. Keeps. On. Going.

Now, the legends and stories around Tommy’s tackle are about as many as the man himself. Perhaps more. It was the subject of one of the most surreal scenes in the recent docudrama Pam and Tommy, starring Lily James as Pamela Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Tommy.

The scene in question has Stan in full Tommy Lee make-up talking to his animatronic knob, which is happily talking back. This was allegedly based on real life experiences shared by Tommy himself. And it seems as though the musician is still good mates with his old mate.

So far, the Instagram post remains up – you can look at it here if you must but be warned, it is very X-rated. But don’t expect it to be up for much longer.

But perhaps the most thought provoking part of this whole saga is the different ways “fans” react to celebrity nudes. Team Tommy comments are all laugh reactions, encouraging and fairly positive.

But when Britney Spears decided to share photos of herself – which actually had demure emojis covering anything considered culturally controversial – people immediately began wondering if she had mental health issues. That she was a bad role model. That she was a  m o t h e r  and that she should be acting like a role model.

This isn’t even touching on the ongoing issue that the social media platform has with nipples. And breast feeding. And women’s bodies in general, which are routinely policed and censored for the most mundane details.
