Durex condoms, KY lubricants and Veet hair removal products saw sales shoot up by nearly a fifth towards the end of last year, according to hygiene giant Reckitt.

Sales of its sex products also rose impressively in China, the US and India.

Sexpert Lacey Haynes said: “Now that we’re on top of Covid, people can finally get out there and get on top of each other again.

It’s no wonder Reckitt has experienced a rise in sales of all their intimate products.

It’s an exciting time where people feel lit up again and ready to hook up.

“Lockdown was a time where sex in long-term relationships took a nosedive and where hooking up was off the cards. People are now experiencing a freedom they’ve been craving for two years.”

The end of lockdown also had an effect on the non-sexy products made by the firm, based in Slough, Berkshire.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
