US woman's revenge on cheating ex by strip show sale of his stuff on eBay

March 6, 2011 - Sydney

A heartbroken US woman has taken to eBay to take revenge from her cheating ex-beau by using headless, semi-n*ked images of her modelling to sell his clothes and other accessories.

"Unfortunately just before Christmas time ... my friend and neighbour both confirmed to me that my boyfriend cheated on me," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Taylor Morgan of Florida as saying in a phone interview.

"First one of my friends had seen him out at a club, but I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt until my neighbour actually saw someone leaving the house while I was out on a trip.

"So I booted him and essentially everything that I bought for him over the five years when we were together I still had in the house," she said.

The 26-year-old, who is using a fake name to conceal her identity, said she and a friend came up with the risque eBay fire sale idea over a couple of glasses of wine after she kicked her ex out of the house.

"I guess the whole aspect of him not really allowing me to be very sexy and wear certain clothes-he preferred that I didn't-it was seemingly a great way to get back at him," she said.

Morgan has already sold about 13 items ranging from a Marc Ecko t-shirt to leather sandals, netting several hundred dollars so far and a great deal of publicity.

In her auction listings Morgan models the clothes wearing as little as possible. In one auction of a Kenneth Cole leather belt, which she sold for 15.50 dollars, Morgan is wearing nothing but the belt, which is fastened around her chest.

"It's not his property, it's my property, I bought it and it was in my house," she said.

Morgan said her ex-boyfriend has since petitioned eBay to take the auction listings down, arguing she is using "sexually suggestive" marketing. She is now re-posting some of the listings in the "art" category, using a loophole to sell her photos as digital prints and then including the clothing item as a "gift".

On her website,, Morgan said her eBay revenge has "been a wonderful experience and has helped me get over my ex BIG TIME!"

Morgan added she had received a tonne of email from both men and women praising her for the move and is now considering turning her website into a portal that will allow jilted ex-lovers to sell their cheating partners' stuff.

"I'm realising that maybe there's something there to explore with a website where I can invite women to also share their breakup stories and maybe also give them the opportunity to sell products and things like that as well," she said.
