The accused Zumba prostitute, who allegedly used her workout studio to have sex with up to 150 married men, posed for naked pictures with her seven-year-old son, the child's father claims.
Benjamin Hopkins has petitioned the court to given him custody of the son he has with Alexis Wright, 29.
The boy is currently living with Wright, who is free on bail in Wells, Maine, after she was charged with 106 counts of prostitution, invasion of privacy and tax evasion.

The Portland Press Herald reports that a photo of the young boy was found on a camera that police seized from Mark Strong, Wright's alleged partner in the illicit business.
'My son appeared naked covered from the waist down with only a sheet. Alexis was fully naked rubbed up against my son,' Mr Hopkins said in court filings.
He said the boy is currently in an 'extremely dangerous situation.'
The arrest of Wright has rocked the small seaside town of Kennebunk, Maine, where she ran a successful Zuma exercise studio.
Police have said they have a client list of 150 local men who paid Wright for sex. The case has caused national intrigue and local scandal after the names of 39 of her clients were released by police last month.
They include a former mayor, a prominent attorney and several well-known local businessmen.
Wright has pleaded not guilty to the prostitution charges.
Mr Hopkins said a Maine Department of Health and Social Services caseworker called him on October 17 and informed him about the photograph after learning about it from Kennebunk police.
At a court hearing on Wednesday, the judge dismissed Mr Hopkins' petition on a technicality after neither he nor Wright showed up.
Police said they are investigating the photograph, but have not charged Wright in connection with it.
In addition to her alleged work as a prostitute, Wright also posted several sex videos online. Some of her clients have also accused her of secretly recording their sexual encounters and posting those on the internet, as well.
