I guarantee that the main motivation for the men creating and/or using this porn is not sexual release. There is literally so much porn, of every type, available at any time from the relative privacy of your phone that no one "needs" this. Deepfakes are created to deliberately circumvent a woman's consent, and to humiliate and degrade her. More than anything, the users are getting a hard-on for the thrill of making a woman a sexual object of consumption outside of her will or control. Even the comments on this article allude to this: "women dress scantily on the beach/Instagram all the time."

This guy's justification is obviously bullshit. He could just as easily advance the technology of deepfakes by creating videos of scenarios where people are doing literally anything else except porn. But he knows that anything beyond porn won't rake in the money from mentally ill men, so of course this is what he chooses to do.

How the fuck isn’t this wildly illegal by now? It seems his identity and arrest would be a few easy clicks away. Do we need some tech savvy radfems to start making deepfake porn of all the male decision makers fucking pigs to get some necessary legislation going?

I think it will be eventually, but only because it affects wealthy and powerful people.

He says he's furthering AI capability through the "porn niche". Ok Bud, that's an inspired mission and all, but why haven't you told your wife what you've been up to?

“I’m afraid of how it would affect her, knowing I work on something like this.” He admits that “the content is actually in a grey area, and I think we’re on a fine line”.

Right. And what she doesn't know won't hurt her or disrupt your mission.
