Nude Madonna photo from Steven Meisel's Sex sessions up for sale

A nude photograph of Madonna is going up for sale.

The provocative image was taken by fashion photographer Steven Meisel but was never included in her controversial 1992 book Sex.

The 1990 photo is expected to fetch over $10,000 when it goes under the hammer at Bonhams in New York next month.

NSFW PHOTO: Go to The Sun for the nude Madonna photo.

Madonna – who would have been around 32 years old when the photo was taken – is featured sporting bleach-blonde hair and dark eye make-up.

A strategically placed bed sheet saves the shot from indecency as she sprawls out naked on her mattress.

HOT SHOTS: Madonna.

She stares seductively at the camera as she places a lit cigarette into her mouth with a pair of manicured fingertips.

Her tome Sex contained a series of sexually provocative and explicit images, all captured by Meisel.

Despite a poor critical reception, the book went on to shift 1.5 million copies in a matter of days.

It coincided with the release of her equally raunchy fifth studio album Erotica.
