Brits are having sex with pals rather than one-night stands, research shows 0 262

ROMPING with pals has replaced one-night stands as Covid makes friends with benefits more popular.

There has been a dramatic fall in singletons looking for one-off sex since the pandemic hit two years ago, researchers say.

But so-called situationship romps — where friends have sex without the romantic commitment — are more common, the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyle found.

Experts say the number of people having one-night stands has fallen from eight per cent to four per cent in ten years.

Research was carried out throughout the pandemic, including during national lockdowns, local lockdowns and periods when rules were eased.

Co-leader of the study Professor Kirstin Mitchell, from the Institute of Health and Well Being at Glasgow University, said: “The restrictions in place in the early part of the pandemic fundamentally altered the opportunities people could have to have sex.

“Covid 19 restrictions led to significant shifts in sexual repertoires, frequency and satisfaction, mostly for those not cohabiting and young people.”

The study also found two thirds of people had sex with someone in their support bubble during the lockdowns.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 41

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.
