Will genetics progress make sex bygone?

According to Hank Greely, the director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Law and Biosciences, human reproduction may become automated faster than you realize.
Greely believes that within three decades, people will no longer have sex as a way to reproduce, and instead rely on genetically edited embryos grown from skin-derived stem cells, not the combination of an egg or sperm, The Independent reported.

According to Greely, this process ensures that the embryo is free from any devastating genetic diseases, and would also be cheaper in the long run because of the money it would save in healthcare over the years. What’s more, Greely predicts that couples would be able to choose other genetic traits in their children, such as physical features and intelligence.

“I don’t think we’re going to be able to say this embryo will get a 1550 on its two-part SAT,” Greely said this week at Aspen Ideas Festival, Quartz reported, “But, this embryo has a 60% chance of being in the top half, this embryo has a 13% chance of being in the top 10%—I think that’s really possible.”

This may sound far-fetched, but the gap between sex and procreation has been widening for the past 50 years thanks to the rise of fertility drugs, embroynic genetic testing, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Over the last ten years in the UK, egg freezing has increased tenfold, from just under 230 cycles in 2009 to almost 2,400 cycles in 2019. IVF birth rates in 2019 were three times higher than in 1991, and the use of egg and sperm donors has risen, too. “Now, maybe three or four per cent of the babies born in the developed world are conceived in some manner other than sexual intercourse, and I think in the future that percentage will go up,” Greely adds.

When scientists figure out how to make this work for humans, infertile and queer couples could have biological babies without needing to go through costly and risky procedures like IVF, donors or surrogates. Single people, meanwhile, could produce ‘uni babies’, using both eggs and sperm grown from their cells.

The idea may sound far-out, but according to Quartz, it already happens on a much smaller and limited scale as a way to prevent certain diseases. Although extremely expensive at the moment, advances in stem cell technology will help to drive down the cost. In addition, the amount that the government would save on not having to take care of sick babies would also make this more cost-efficient.
As many of you may worry, this is not the end of sex because recreational sex will always be with us, but it’s the end of sex as a way of procreating.
It will not be the complete end. People will still get pregnant the old-fashioned way, maybe for religious reasons, for philosophical reasons, for romantic reasons or maybe because they are teenagers and the back seat of the car is there.

“Eugenics is a slippery word; it means many things to different people. To some, it’s state-enforced reproductive control. To some, what we had was state-enforced sterilization. To some, it’s any kind of reproductive choice, but those are different things. For me, I think coercion is much more important than the issues of selection. The concern about the state or the insurance company or someone else, forcing you to pick particular babies, worries me a lot more than having parents make choices, though that raises its own set of questions.” Greely said.

An interview with Caitlyn Brooks, Official ModelSearcher Ambassador

We had the great pleasure of meeting up and speaking with Caitlyn lately. 

At the age of nineteen, she entered the challenging role of a single mother responsible for supporting her child. She decided to start webcam modeling to make ends meet. Very soon, as honestly, she has the best personality, Caitlyn became a successful model in the industry! As a result of her dedication and determination, she became a role model for new and upcoming content creators.

She currently represents ModelSearcher as a brand ambassador. Our social media network is made especially for adult material users and producers, and Caitlyn is more than happy to assist creators in growing their following and traffic. 

Here is a full interview with Caitlyn. 

💬Could you tell us a little about yourself and how you started as a webcam model? 

As a newly single mother, I entered the sex industry as a survival sex worker to support myself and my child simultaneously. 

💬When you first started webcam modeling, what were your initial reactions and thoughts? 

Since I became more active online, my attitude toward Cam has changed. I used to be shy, and it took me some time to accept myself. 

💬When did you first start to see actual success in this field? 

I lived in a bubble during my first four years of internet use and had no idea there was an awards and events world. Thus, the first step toward my achievement was making my bill payments on time, and building my home came first. 

💬In what ways has the way you view your work evolved? 

My knowledge and confidence have primarily developed. I now have fantastic role models and influencers, and I trust my instincts more—I’m building a community. 

On her regular workdays… 

💬Which streaming platforms do you use? 

As a part of Streamate, Jerkmate and I have been collaborating closely. I also occasionally log into CamSoda. In addition, I produce SFW content on my fan sites and frequently share content on Instagram and TikTok live feeds. 

💬As a webcam model, could you describe a typical day? 

Housework and cooking in the morning. My daily schedule usually consists of responding to messages, checking emails, doing yoga, and doing my hair and makeup before heading out for a few hours of afternoon video recording. I also have a cat. In the late afternoon, I log off to attend to dinner and other matters at home. In addition, I usually continue streaming or making content throughout the night. 

💨How do you emotionally and physically get ready for a session? 

Haha, it’s hype time. I enjoy dancing, doing my hair and makeup, and listening to music. That helps me focus! 

💬Which techniques do you employ to draw in and hold on to your audience? 

Introduce yourself and engage in a discussion. Being myself makes it so much easier, as I’m sharing my inner light. 

💬Do you have a specific area of expertise? 

I didn’t think so, haha. However, the more I go online, the more femdom and enjoyable roles like that appear in my area of work.

💬About Caitlyn’s abilities and growth as a person… Which abilities are necessary for webcam modeling success? 

Honesty, being someone people want to interact with or talk to, drive, consistency, and having a thick skin to deal with the other side are the most critical factors. 

💬How do you continue to be inspired and driven at work? 

Even if I’m only sometimes motivated, my success comes from keeping my word and being there. On my bad days, I seek inspiration from other creators or appreciate their accomplishments. 

💬Are there any mentors or resources that have significantly impacted your career? 

All of the classic bombshells of the 1990s. I admire the girls who made porn, and I believe everyone I meet in my line of work has something inspiring to say. 

Obstacles and How to Overcome Them 

💬In your professional life, what have been the primary obstacles you’ve had to overcome? 

I remind myself that life is not a single day when I’m having a difficult day with little traffic. All that matters is a career and the ability to enjoy life. 

💬How do you respond to criticism or unfavorable comments from viewers? 

Nobody can please everyone; for every individual who finds fault with me, there is a passionate follower who adores me. I lean toward the people who love me, disregarding the hate. 

Regarding her position as a ModelSearcher brand ambassador

💬Congratulations on being named ModelSearcher’s official brand ambassador! Could you explain your new position’s role and responsibilities? 

I’m grateful. It makes me very glad to be able to assist models in finding other ways to market themselves without having to deal with social media censorship. For those of us who create pornographic content, ModelSearcher is a free marketing tool. It’s a crowded market, you know. We also constantly battle censorship. This kind of thing drives more natural traffic to creators’ OnlyFans pages and helps them stand out in the congested market. I can’t wait to tell the industry how ModelSearcher was helpful to me. My traffic has increased, and my brand is flourishing thanks to it.

💬ModelSearcher, an adult-oriented social media site that allows free speech, is renowned for its distinct methodology. What was your first impression of ModelSearcher, and what makes you think it is unique among the competition? 

I was impressed with it. I had an excellent first impression. ModelSearcher is all about expressing yourself freely and working as you are. I sought a space where you could embrace your uniqueness and showcase your efforts without worrying about limitations. Plus, it is free. Plus, there is real user traffic exposure. 

💬Which features of ModelSearcher do you find most valuable, and in what ways do you think it helps models in business? 

I really appreciate ModelSearcher’s commitment to offering secure and welcoming social networking platforms for content creators in the adult content creator field. We need this! It helps models because it gives them a platform where they can freely interact with their audience and sell their work without restrictions.

💬It is required of you as an ambassador to advertise ModelSearcher at different events and on various platforms. Could you describe your strategy for going after this promotion?

I want to get the word out about ModelSearcher! Through various events and platforms, I want to spread the word about what we have to offer to as many people as possible. This entails participating in podcasts and other media platforms so that I can discuss how ModelSearcher can assist budding models and share a few of our past success stories. Also, we are creating podcasts sessions with part of the marketing team to make the voice of the most successful OnlyFans models be heard.

💬Do you want to draw attention to any messages or values associated with ModelSearcher? 

Just to be clear, ModelSearcher’s whole idea is to reclaim the power of artists and foster an inclusive environment where anyone may work and express themselves regardless of circumstances. They enjoy having no limitations because this is about labor, and they aim to draw in models that share this sentiment. If this is what you’re looking for, this is a pretty excellent place to be! 

💬You will interact with WarehouseX as part of your employment with ModelSearcher. What role do you envision yourself playing there? Do you think models can market themselves using ModelSearcher as a platform? 

Models can use ModelSearcher to advertise themselves and increase their income online. It is a one-stop shop with all the materials and tools required to improve their online profile. So yeah, ModelSearcher is undoubtedly worth checking out if you’re a model trying to develop your brand and boost your income! 

💬At the Lalexpo event, in Colombia, you spoke on behalf of ModelSearcher recently. What did the audience think of ModelSearcher and the services it provides? And how did you find the experience? 

It was a blast to represent ModelSearcher at the Lalexpo event. The models were excited to be part of a platform encouraging free speech and supporting their development as creators. They genuinely wanted to know more about ModelSearcher and its capabilities. It’s beautiful to be able to assist them in showcasing their work and increasing traffic to their business. 

Regarding her opinions about the sector

💬How do you envision the webcam sector changing over the coming years? 

Creators are creating amazing things, and I can’t wait to see how well-known brands interact with our sector’s innovative concepts and individuals. We’ve always been leaders in technology and other fields, and I do not doubt we will be. 

💬What common misunderstandings exist around webcam modeling, and how can you dispel them? 

They often think we’re crazy party girls or constantly sexual mood. Many of us are more shy or homemakers, and I don’t even consider having sex when I’m not working. 

Regarding her future and career

💬 Where do you see yourself in a few years? Do you have any particular objectives in mind? 

I want to stay and pass on my experience to others so that I can succeed in the business side of the adult industry and help upcoming females succeed. 

💬What guidance would you offer someone considering becoming a webcam model? 

Be yourself; don’t be afraid to say no. Change your thoughts if an opportunity isn’t right for you. Feel free to try new things or something else if something doesn’t work. 

💬Is there anything about your line of work that you wish more people knew about? 

Like everyone else, we are genuine, honest people. Please treat us with the same respect and kindness you expect from others.

💬Through this interview, what message would you like to share with your fans and supporters? 

I make mistakes. Like everyone else, I’ve had highs and lows, but you can always talk to me, discuss, or reflect on your thoughts. Since I sincerely enjoy my work, I’m here to offer support. Get used to seeing Ms. Caitlyn Brooks, as I won’t leave for a while.

OnlyFans Under Fire for Verification Issues

The U.K.’s communications regulator, Ofcom, is investigating OnlyFans for not effectively preventing minors from accessing its adult content. The probe focuses on whether OnlyFans’ parent company, Fenix International Limited, adequately implemented age checks and whether it submitted complete and accurate information to the regulatory body.

The U.K. regulator, Ofcom, is currently examining OnlyFans, a subscription-based platform known for its adult content, due to failures in preventing underage access to pornography. The concern is that OnlyFans’ parent company, Fenix International Limited, might not have sufficiently enforced age-verification measures.

Further, the investigation by Ofcom includes whether Fenix provided incomplete or inaccurate details in response to two official requests for information—one in June 2022 and another in June 2023. These requests were part of Ofcom’s efforts to assess how video-sharing platforms like OnlyFans are protecting minors from inappropriate content.

OnlyFans claims it requires all users to provide identification, such as a name and payment card details. Additionally, it employs age-verification technology through Yoti, a government-approved provider that uses facial scans to estimate age. However, OnlyFans admitted to a mistake in their report, which incorrectly stated a minimum age threshold of 23, instead of the actual 20, although both are above the legal requirement of 18. After discovering this error, OnlyFans said it corrected the information in its report to Ofcom.

As part of its commitment to safety, OnlyFans highlighted its ongoing collaboration with Ofcom to develop and refine online safety best practices, including implementing sophisticated age-verification technologies.

The backdrop to this scrutiny is the U.K.’s recent rollout of the Online Safety Act, which will soon govern online speech and media standards. However, Ofcom’s current investigation is based on existing regulations under the Communications Act 2003, updated in 2020, which mandates that U.K.-based video-sharing platforms take appropriate steps to prevent children under 18 from accessing pornographic material. Notably, Ofcom’s probe focuses solely on the viewers of the OnlyFans platform in the U.K., not the content creators, who must already verify their identities during the onboarding process.

Pornhub Faces Lawsuit Over Data Privacy Breaches

A class action lawsuit accuses the popular adult site Pornhub of improperly sharing users’ personal data with Google for targeted ads. Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on April 19 by several California law firms on behalf of “Jane Doe”, the lawsuit alleges serious privacy violations.

According to the lawsuit, Pornhub collects extensive user data—including browser and operating system details, device information, video viewing choices, and even IP addresses—and uses this data to tailor advertisements specifically to users. When users log into their Google accounts, Pornhub allegedly tracks their activity across the web using a unique user ID, then shares this data with advertisers to enable more precise marketing strategies.

The complaint asserts that Pornhub does this without user consent, misleading users by claiming the data is anonymized before sharing. This practice potentially violates the Video Privacy Protection Act, which requires explicit, informed consent from users before sharing such data. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief to stop Pornhub from continuing this practice, demands destruction of the data already collected, and calls for compensation for affected users, citing damages, restitution, and legal costs.

Pornhub’s parent company, Aylo Holdings, has not commented on the ongoing litigation but faces serious accusations of breaching privacy norms. The case underlines the critical importance of user privacy, especially in sensitive contexts involving personal data related to sexual preferences.
