YOU are the next big thing in porn

This week, [Naughty America] launched a service that lets customers pay to customize adult clips to their liking using AI. They’ll be able to insert themselves into scenes alongside their favorite actor or actress or edit the background of an existing clip.

The process is called “deepfakes” and it came about last year when a bunch of devs figured out a way of using AI to face-swap celebs into porn videos.

Naturally, porn companies being on the forefront of any technology likely to see mass-adoption, saw an opportunity for the tech and are now offering “personalised” services to custom a clip for you own personal consumption with the faces you want to insert.

The fear is that the tech is used for nefarious purposes such as revenge porn or celebs fakes but Naughty America (NA) seem unfazed with NA CEO, Andreas Hronopoulos, saying: “It’s just editing, that’s all it is. People have been editing people’s faces on pictures since the internet started.”

The services requires you send a series of specific photos and videos that are likely to be difficult to source if you’re not the applicant but still, NA have said nothing about verifying they belong to the submitter and only that their legal team will seek consent.

Official pricing for the service is yet to be released but NA have said it will start in the hundreds and end in the thousands depending on the length of the video being requested from their catalogue.
