Porn for Data Nerds

Do you like big data and machine learning? Do you like Porn?

Caution: deplorable language

If your answer was yes to those two questions, I think I found something you’re going to love. I am a lover of AI, big data, machine intelligence, etc. and I’ve been researching it for years. The most important thing about machine intelligence is: what do you train it on?

Over the years, I’ve seen people train AIs on a slew of things, from politics data, to twitter, to matching people up for a date. This is the first time I’ve seen it for porn!

QuickFap.co is a new site that learns what turns you on, gets you off, and gets your blood flowing. It uses a simple interface to create a map of your libido as you navigate through the vast cloud of porn that is indexed from PornHub. The cool part is that it plays out like Tinder: you swipe right or left on a video you’d “fap” to or not. It gives you about 10 seconds to decide, but lets you use the seek feature at the bottom of the video to look through and make your choice. The system reacts to you and tries to find you better porn more suited to your tastes and fetishes automatically.

Here’s the cool part. After a couple of minutes of swiping through different porn, you can click the menu (top left) and click on a button called “My Libido”. This will render for you a full network graph of what makes you randy and what doesn’t. It’s like I can finally see the little brain inside my penis! The graph even shows how different tags are connected in the porn that you’re watching. It really is a site to see, as you can keep playing and come back to your map to see how it has changed.

It seems also that the site has a couple of unfinished features that I’d for one love to see, like making an anonymous user account (to keep your “fappable” videos in one place [The spank bank?]), the pornstars feature, I think that will show you what pornstars are your favorite and my fetishes. I’m not sure what that’s going to be.

I think this is a great new approach to watching porn, and indeed, within a short while, the system was pulling up way more videos that I’d actually wank it to! I’m not sure if I like the custom tailored porn more or the cool data visualization, but one thing I do know… I’m now a libido hacker!

The Future

What are the implications of this technology in the future? I think everybody knows that sex robots are coming. They’ve been a sci-fi concept for something like 70 years. There are now life-like sex dolls and much more sophisticated techniques for robotics. People are even printing robots now! I can imagine playing something like QuickFap for a couple of minutes, the system analyzing all of the data, and then printing out a custom sexbot ^_^

Either way it goes, QF is just fun, and it’s definitely going in my favorites!
