Taylor drift: Finally, a use for AI emerges? Cyber-smut star films fsck-flick in Tesla with Autopilot, warns: 'I wouldn't recommend it'

Model X? More like Model XXX

A blue-movie actress skyrocketed to internet fame overnight this week as a video of her having sex inside a Tesla Model X on Autopilot mode went viral on Pornhub.

The nine-minute clip (and, no we aren’t linking to the video, find it yourself) has a whopping 1.9m views and counting on the world's most popular porno site. You may think that Pornhub must be flooded with racy content filmed in autonomous cars, so what’s special about this one? Well, it appears to be the first X-rated flick filmed using Tesla's super-cruise-control neural-network-based Autopilot on the road.

“Earlier this year I was on a road trip with my boyfriend and he asked me to have sex with him while driving,” the independent porn star known as Taylor Jackson told El Reg on Friday.

“We both thought it was hot and joked about doing it again and putting it on Pornhub. We thought someone had to have done it before so we looked it up, but we couldn't find a single video. A few weeks later I signed up for a Pornhub account and this video was one of the first few videos I made.”


FYI: You could make Tesla's Autopilot swerve into traffic with a few stickers on the road


Autopilot, at the moment, requires the driver to keep their hands on the wheel while it autosteers, though Tesla hopes to eventually fill out its technology to fully hands-free. If you watch the XXX vids, which we did in the interests of investigative journalism and data science, you'll see Taylor's boyfriend in the driver seat with Taylor, well, on top, and um, while there's a lot of hand movements, there's not always a lot hands on the wheel.

The hardcore scene, uploaded a month ago, has gone viral, making Tesla the number-one search term on the X-rated website on Thursday night. The video was inundated with comments from online onanists. PornHub user RadDad76 wrote in this delicately put, highly thumbed-up post: “What a f*****g day and age we live in where we can watch a man **** some **** in a car that drives itself. Brings a tear to my eye.”

Here's Taylor breaking the good news to her followers on Twitter – and be aware her Twitter feed is filled with over-18s-only NSFW-grade material:

Although the idea of copulating in a self-driving car speeding down a highway may seem amusing, it’s not for the fainthearted, Jackson warned.

“I have experienced Autopilot a lot so I did feel safe," she told us. "Most of the highway we were on was straight. We did have one scare where I hit the steering wheel and knocked it out of Autopilot mode. I wouldn't recommend it since it is dangerous.”

The Autopilot function helps drivers automatically steer, accelerate, and brake. But “current autopilot features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous,” Tesla warned in its vehicle documentation.

We have asked Tesla for comment. We're not holding our breath for a response. ®

  • Meet Wizard Spider, the multimillion-dollar gang behind Conti, Ryuk malware
    Russia-linked crime-as-a-service crew is rich, professional – and investing in R&D

    Analysis Wizard Spider, the Russia-linked crew behind high-profile malware Conti, Ryuk and Trickbot, has grown over the past five years into a multimillion-dollar organization that has built a corporate-like operating model, a year-long study has found.

    In a technical report this week, the folks at Prodaft, which has been tracking the cybercrime gang since 2021, outlined its own findings on Wizard Spider, supplemented by info that leaked about the Conti operation in February after the crooks publicly sided with Russia during the illegal invasion of Ukraine.

    What Prodaft found was a gang sitting on assets worth hundreds of millions of dollars funneled from multiple sophisticated malware variants. Wizard Spider, we're told, runs as a business with a complex network of subgroups and teams that target specific types of software, and has associations with other well-known miscreants, including those behind REvil and Qbot (also known as Qakbot or Pinkslipbot).

  • Supreme Court urged to halt 'unconstitutional' Texas content-no-moderation law
    Everyone's entitled to a viewpoint but what's your viewpoint on what exactly is and isn't a viewpoint?

    A coalition of advocacy groups on Tuesday asked the US Supreme Court to block Texas' social media law HB 20 after the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals last week lifted a preliminary injunction that had kept it from taking effect.

    The Lone Star State law, which forbids large social media platforms from moderating content that's "lawful-but-awful," as advocacy group the Center for Democracy and Technology puts it, was approved last September by Governor Greg Abbott (R). It was immediately challenged in court and the judge hearing the case imposed a preliminary injunction, preventing the legislation from being enforced, on the basis that the trade groups opposing it – NetChoice and CCIA – were likely to prevail.

    But that injunction was lifted on appeal. That case continues to be litigated, but thanks to the Fifth Circuit, HB 20 can be enforced even as its constitutionality remains in dispute, hence the coalition's application [PDF] this month to the Supreme Court.

    FBI and co blow lid off latest PHP tampering scam

    The FBI and its friends have warned businesses of crooks scraping people's credit-card details from tampered payment pages on compromised websites.

    It's an age-old problem: someone breaks into your online store and alters the code so that as your customers enter their info, copies of their data is siphoned to fraudsters to exploit. The Feds this week have detailed one such effort that reared its head lately.

    As early as September 2020, we're told, miscreants compromised at least one American company's vulnerable website from three IP addresses: 80[.]249.207.19, 80[.]82.64.211 and 80[.]249.206.197. The intruders modified the web script TempOrders.php in an attempt to inject malicious code into the checkout.php page.
