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.”

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. ®

  • Minimal, systemd-free Alpine Linux releases version 3.16
    A widespread distro that many of its users don't even know they have

    Version 3.16.0 of Alpine Linux is out – one of the most significant of the many lightweight distros.

    Version 3.16.0 is worth a look, especially if you want to broaden your skills.

    Alpine is interesting because it's not just another me-too distro. It bucks a lot of the trends in modern Linux, and while it's not the easiest to set up, it's a great deal easier to get it working than it was a few releases ago.

  • Verizon: Ransomware sees biggest jump in five years
    We're only here for DBIRs

    The cybersecurity landscape continues to expand and evolve rapidly, fueled in large part by the cat-and-mouse game between miscreants trying to get into corporate IT environments and those hired by enterprises and security vendors to keep them out.

    Despite all that, Verizon's annual security breach report is again showing that there are constants in the field, including that ransomware continues to be a fast-growing threat and that the "human element" still plays a central role in most security breaches, whether it's through social engineering, bad decisions, or similar.

    According to the US carrier's 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) released this week [PDF], ransomware accounted for 25 percent of the observed security incidents that occurred between November 1, 2020, and October 31, 2021, and was present in 70 percent of all malware infections. Ransomware outbreaks increased 13 percent year-over-year, a larger increase than the previous five years combined.

    These were the words of communication and collaboration platform Mattermost's founder and CTO, Corey Hulen, speaking to The Register about open source, sovereignty and audio bridges.

    "Some of the history of Mattermost is exactly that problem," says Hulen of the issue of closed source software. "We were using proprietary tools – we were not a collaboration platform before, we were a games company before – [and] we were extremely frustrated because we couldn't get our intellectual property out of those systems..."
