Washington Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton’s verdict on this:
Passion and physicality are indeed facets of love. But the photo was also a bit tasteless. I would not have run that [butt squeeze] photo. It’s a touch too edgy for a family newspaper. And the coincidence of having it on the reverse of KidsPost, with Valentines’ cutouts? Well, Cupid must have had a hand in that, or on that.
