A nude photograph of Madonna taken when she was a struggling 20-year-old is going up for auction.
Madonna was paid $25 dollars to pose for the shot which Christie's auction house says it expects to sell for more than $10,000.
Several other photographs also taken by Lee Friedlander appeared in Playboy in 1985.
The photograph up for auction has not been published before and is described as "full-frontal" and "very explicit."
Is it really that shocking to see a nude photograph of Madonna?
