Earlier this year cases of super gonorrhoea were detected in the UK, with people urged to be on the look out for the illness.

Before the pandemic, cases of syphilis had also increased by 86 per cent in those 65 and over, Public Health England data showed.

And it’s no wonder infections are easily spread in this age group, when two thirds of Brits are uneasy when it comes to talking about STIs.

Research of 2,000 adults found half of Brits (51 per cent) find it difficult to have conversations about intercourse – 38 per cent of over 65s – with adults avoiding the topic because it makes them feel awkward.

Relationship charity, Relate, has teamed up with the The Hornicultural Society to end stigma among older generations when it comes to talking about sex.

Their study found that 43 per cent of those aged 65 and over feel more confident and liberated now when it comes to sex than at any other point in their lives.

While more than half consider themselves to be adventurous in the bedroom.

The study also found 16 per cent of over 65s have purchased or considered buying sex toys for themselves or their partner during the past 12 months.

More than half this age group (52 per cent) have sex once to twice a week – with 12 per cent claiming to have intercourse more now than at any other time in their lives.

However, the research carried out through OnePoll found 80 per cent of over 65s haven’t bought condoms in the past six months.

That’s why the society has now launched a new range of condoms to encourage older age groups to stay protected.

They come in garden seed-style packaging and will be available in six naughty veg themes, including onions, avocado, plums, artichokes, courgette and aubergine.

The free condoms are also sustainable and can be planted in a pot to degrade.

Relationship psychotherapist and Relate president, Anjula Mutand said sex and intimacy can be as adventurous and fulfilling in later life as it can be at any age.

She explained: “It might be different – for physical or other reasons – but it’s brilliant that our research showed it’s still a significant part of life for those who want it to be.

“And we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about the importance of safe sex, regardless of age.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 45

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.
