Scrolling through my Facebook (soon TikTok) feed yesterday, a saw a post my friend shared. It was about a website that sells nude photos of women for $1, but there’s a catch – none of those women exist. Similar to these portraits or these cameras, all of the nude women are AI-generated.
Like a hamster running frantically inside its little wheel, my brain started processing this information and I spent the rest of the day thinking about it. AI-generated nudes… Why? When? How? I was kind of disgusted and impressed at the same time and I knew I had to write about it. I gave it a good thought and now I want to present you with two things. First, the very fact that AI-generated nudes exist, and second, my opinion on the whole thing.
