And finally… cease and desist

One of Italy’s most prestigious art galleries has threatened Pornhub with legal action over an interactive museum guide recasting famous artworks as “priceless porn”.

And finally… cease and desist

The online porn giant’s “Classic Nudes” initiative highlights “some of the sexiest scenes in history at the world’s most famous museums”.

The Uffizi Gallery in Florence has its own dedicated section of the interactive guide, with a map to find the “naked bodies rendered in paint, bronze and marble in this marvellous museum”.

The guide also features extra content including videos of adult film actresses recreating some of the scenes on display or providing audio commentary.

However, gallery bosses have said the use of its content is “totally illegal and has been done without permission”.

A spokesperson for the Uffizi said: “Our lawyers are drafting a cease and desist order to be sent to Pornhub. This material should be taken down immediately.”
