Taylor Swift thinks the pics of a DJ allegedly groping her will get people all hot and bothered ... so much so she wants the judge in the case to seal them.
Taylor made the pitch in legal docs in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller ... claiming the release of the pics would "be shared for scandalous and prurient interests."
That's short for ... the press will have a field day with this stuff ... and folks will get super aroused.
Taylor thinks the release of the pics would create unfairness against her ... to the point of influencing a jury pool, saying, "the interest in a fair and impartial trial outweigh any public interest in access to the documents identified above."
You'll recall ... Mueller originally sued Taylor last year, saying he was fired after she publicly claimed he groped her backstage in 2013 at one of her concerts. Taylor countersued ... saying he absolutely did.
In her docs, Taylor calls the pics "extremely personal and sensitive."
