This work aims to identify the body representations posted on social networking sites to reveal how men and women expose their bodies and what body parts are valued. The data collected on 317 men and 315 women's profiles of an infidelity site. Initial results indicate that the photos are crisp and clear in most profiles (92%), allowing to identify a person. Blurred and/or dark photos are meant to camouflage themselves; but only 4.7% Blurred, dark (3.4%). In the open profile photos, women post more photos (91%) than men (59%). Men expose more in the private gallery where there is a predominance of nudity with genital exposure. On the quality of photos, women profiles follow hegemonic patterns: explore sensuality, smile, relaxed. The photos of men are neutral, stating that men are not expecting sensuality in a heteronormative official website. There are no significant differences between men and women whose body parts are presented in a photo. The pictures show aspects for assessing the body's way as revealed in everyday life, i.e., the social body: face and torso, allowing identify who the person is. As for the clothing that appears in the photos, most, regardless of gender, is the social body, which is indicative of the dress code for this situation. In conclusion, the body, which appears in photos posted, playing a hegemonic pattern of male and female.
