NSFW: Adult Film Brand Lets You Edit Yourself Into Its Porn Using Deepfake
By Yoon Sann Wong, 22 Aug 2018
Adult film company Naughty America is aiming to live up to its name with the controversial deepfake technology. The notorious tool has already sparked a debate around the non-consensual usage of a person’s identity and invasion of privacy.
This AI-fueled face-swopping tech is capable of pasting celebrities’ faces into adult videos—previously experimented with that of Gal Gadot, Emma Watson, and Scarlett Johansson—creating fake porn to terrifying and utterly believable detail, and convincingly recreating identities in politics such as Donald Trump.
While some brands including Twitter and Reddit have taken a stance by banning face-swopped porn, Naughty America wants to capitalize on this technology by enabling custom-created and consensual deepfake pornography.
Personalized VR porn films
It has announced its new service that customizes VR porn films for its viewers, which it has demonstrated in these highly NSFW videos featuring porn stars Zoey Monroe, Jade Nile and Blair Williams.
The first and original clip stars only Monroe and Nile, while the second edited deepfake film introduces “a fun threesome VR experience” by blending in Williams’ face.
Fusion of identities, however, isn’t the only thing that the service provides. Naughty America aims to insert any of its customers into a scene that includes his or her favorite actress or actor. Those with physical limitations could find themselves in sexual encounters otherwise impossible in reality.
Transporting viewers to any location of their liking
What’s more, the brand is offering computer vision technology that transports its viewers to any location or scene of their preference. Its subsequent two NSFW videos demonstrate this with help from porn star Nicole Aniston, who is seen inside the bedroom and later at a beach.
Naughty America’s CEO Andreas Hronopoulos believes the technology has great potential for the porn industry, provided it is used for personal pleasure and not exploited to somebody else’s expense and humiliation.
“Deepfakes don’t hurt people, people using deepfakes hurt people,” said Hronopoulos.
The process of creating these consensual, customized porn videos, though, sounds anything but straightforward. Naughty America’s legal team and third-party AI researchers will have to be involved to develop the custom clips that won’t come cheap.
Background swops, for instance, could cost hundreds of dollars for simple replacements and go up to the thousands for more complex requests.
Those who are interested can contact Naughty America with ideas for their personalized videos. Hronopoulos, for one, is “really excited” to see what customers will ask for in their bid to fulfill wild sexual fantasies.
