ith the news of Gal Gadot’s AI-made porno tape, the world just became a slightly scarier place. Thanks to technology, some perv has finally found a way to pull out (no pun intended) the actors from the art that is pornography. I’m talking about AI-assisted porn, which uses machine-learning to swap a pornstar’s face onto any person’s body, seamlessly. This essentially means we can take movie stars from the silver screen to blue films with simply a laptop, image-editing software, and some machine learning know-how (although I wager it would take a laptop a couple of days to pull off such a render.)

This is great news if you’re into that sort of stuff, but frightening because everyone’s face is all over the internet. Who knows someday I might be the star of my very own sordid porno produced by AI in a bid to make the world a weirder place. What if watching pornography starring yourself is the final porn-tier? It certainly would make for the ultimate gift for a narcissist, but it wouldn’t be the weirdest thing in the world. Because we have the internet, a place where life goes to dip its nutsack in peanut butter while doing the Macarena with a three-legged dog named Tripod who’s probably eating out of the same jar of peanut butter. Sounds fucked? It probably exists.

Enter rule 34. Rule 34 began as a simple meme on the internet message board of 4chan, before it was overrun with a whole lot of NSFW-ness.
