The advent of deepfakes brings more concerns about the future of revenge porn, but there’s now one additional thing to worry about: 3D avatar recreations.
According to a report by Motherboard, a community of 3D graphics hobbyists are fulfilling their sexual fantasies by building photorealistic models of their exes or celebrities through tools and software that are getting easier for the general public to obtain.
While game and special effects studios usually gain permission to use people’s likeness before rendering them, internet users often don’t see the need for consent in creating lookalike avatars of real people.
Some programs used by hobbyists include Virt-A-Mate, made for designing adult VR simulations and games, and Foto2Vam, where a person’s photograph can be used to automatically generate a 3D avatar that can also appear in VR.
“I use [Foto2Vam] to fulfill my sexual fantasies or replicate sexual encounters with my ex-girlfriends,” one Redditor explained in a dedicated thread. “Foto2Vam has enabled me to literally feel like I’m there again, i.e. getting a handjob/footjob from my ex looking at me with a smile… another ex [riding] me on the floor… the possibilities are endless.”
A like-minded user suggested that “some 3D models turn out better than others depending on how many quality photographs of the person they can work with,” going so far as to encourage fellow hobbyists to “ask girlfriends to pose [in] a few different angles with a blank expression and flat lighting for a few photos.”
He also expressed his enjoyment of “[altering] reality and [giving] them boob implants.”
Motherboard reported that some users removed their posts upon being contacted.
As to when all this might end, one Discord user has presented a grim clue: “It’s human nature… [and] our world and freedom, they can’t stop us from jacking off, nobody can. They can merely choose extreme privacy.”
