Wearing sunglasses makes people much likelier to ogle, researchers find 0 160

WEARING sunglasses makes people much likelier to ogle, researchers have found.

Those in shades lech over the scantily clad more often and for longer when nobody can see them doing it, they discovered.

And oglers were even found to turn their heads away to disguise further what they were looking at. 

The researchers asked volunteers to gaze at images of fully dressed models and those posing in underwear.

Participants were secretly filmed doing the test while wearing sunglasses and also specs with clear lenses.

When people wore see-through glasses, they kept their gaze on the clothed figures.

But once the shades were on, they ogled the undressed models more and for 20 per cent longer.

Writing in the journal Cognition, researcher Professor Veronica Dudarev, from the University of British Columbia, Canada, said: “People spontaneously looked more and for longer at the sexually provocative images when their eyes were camouflaged by sunglasses.”

The study involved 52 men and women aged between 18 and 28.

Sex therapist Phillip Hodson said: “Whether we are on the beach or in the pub, our eyes home in explicitly on bottoms and bosoms.

“It’s mainly an unconscious quest driven no doubt by the force of the mating-game.”

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.
