You Are Already Having Sex With Robots

Henry the sex robot is the “mind” of a “woman” trapped in the “body” of a “man.” When you talk to Henry, you’re really talking to the artificial intelligence database Realbotix developed for its female predecessor, Harmony. To masculinize Henry, Realbotix founder and CEO Matt McMullen and five other “robot heads” sit with Henry doing R&D, which amounts to chatting Henry up. “Henry, how was your day?” McMullen asks. “Just fine, baby,” Henry says. “But when are you going to take me out to dinner?” The humans all look at each other. “That didn’t sound quite right,” McMullen says, and the others agree. The language database they’re developing for Henry shouldn’t include soliciting nights out on the town. “Sometimes Henry …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: Oh No Nene, What Is You Doin? | Betches

Celebrities and Facetune are the new bread and butter, or peanut butter and jelly, of thirst traps and daddy issues. They just seem to go together in every situation. However, when done correctly, most celeb Facetune jobs are pretty undetectable, unless you’re a crazy person like me and dissect it to find the problems. Celebs will fix things like lighting, highlight the eyes, hair flyaways, acne, etc. Some of the more extreme ones edit their bodies and make themselves look thinner or more fit. But there are a select few that use Facetune to make themselves look like Michael Jackson, and then they go, “Yes, this is amazing. Let’s do more of this.” So, Nene Leakes is really into Facetune. …

Over the past few weeks, keeping up with the developments in Tyler Cameron and Gigi Hadid’s relationship has made up approximately 60% of my job.

To make your life easier (and honestly, mine too), I decided to put together a full timeline of what TyGi have been up to. And yes I said TyGi, just let it happen. Here’s the official timeline of everything we know about, so you can really see what …

Sauce and sensuality: TV drama adds extra mischief to Austen

As the authors final work, Sanditon, starts on television, the acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies talks about the joy of Jane Hes the king of the period drama, the man who infamously sexed up everything from Pride and Prejudice to War and Peace, but Andrew Davies says that the key to his success lies not in nudity but in a good sense of humour. I think people dont often realise that a lot of the joy of Jane Austen is that these books are funny, he says. People think that, to adapt her, youve got to use long words and fancy sentences, and thats not the case at all. She could be very succinct and to the point and had a …

Taylor Swift: Lover review a return to past glories

Taylor Swifts latest album revisits the catchy pop and romantic concerns that made her name Taylor Swift is more of a lover than a fighter. The singer-songwriter doesnt say it out loud on her seventh album the successor to 2017s 1989 via the confessionals of Jack Antonoff, producer of Lordes 2017 album ME! a duet with You Need to Calm Down, a fabulously pitched takedown of haters, bigots and internet trolls, have exuded playfulness, tunefulness and wit in equal measure. An album so long is bound to be a mixed bag. Strong opener I Forgot That You Existed is a breezy kiss-off to an old flame or, perhaps the whole Kimye era: Lived in the shade you were throwing till …

The machine always wins: what drives our addiction to social media

The long read: Social media was supposed to liberate us, but for many people it has proved addictive, punishing and toxic. What keeps us hooked? We are swimming in writing. Our lives have become, in the words of the author and academic Shoshana Zuboff, an electronic text. Facebook for just 99 days. Many of these determined quitters couldnt even make the first few days. And many of those who successfully quit had access to another social networking site, like Twitter, so that they had simply displaced their addiction. Those who stayed away, however, were typically in a happier frame of mind and less interested in controlling how other people thought of them, thus implying that social media addiction is partly …

Is Simon Cowell’s surprising new face a vision of our deepfake future?

In the future, we might all embark on a side-slide not into younger, prettier people, but whole new personae The human face, that subsection of appendages living just south of our eyebrows, has rarely been under such attack. Take the deepfake Red Room reverse speech. Surely, there should be some law to stop this; some guidelines. But the horse has already bolted. Our faces can be used for anything. The future will be one long and terrifying version of ShaggysIt Wasnt Me. Elsewhere, as Cruise was having his face faked, Simon Cowell unveiled his new tight-and-bright visage on the Americas Got Talent red carpet, and caused shockwaves of his own. This isnt my moment to snipe at silly celebrities for …

Did This Influencer Fake A Crash For Instagram Likes? | Betches

When it comes to getting Instagram likes, you have to constantly up the ante, influencers especially. Whereas once influencers invented and perfected the art of posing in front of a brightly colored wall with one leg bent, foot planted against the wall, that’s not enough. Just like Oscar de la Renta’s cerulean blue, Instagram poses have trickled down from the elite (celebrities and mega-influencers) to the plebeians (everybody else with a smart phone and an Instagram account). It’s not enough to just post a pretty, bright photo of a pretty white girl in front of an aesthetically pleasing backdrop anymore. You have to get creative, which influencers have been doing in perplexing and dangerous ways, from posing at toxic lakes …

The Best ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Recap You’ll Ever Read: Does Christian Even Go Here? Betches

She should have smashed that guitar. Meanwhile, Kevin is walking around asking why everyone likes Blake when he’s not even that good looking. GREAT QUESTION, SIR. You can sit with us, Kevin. The girls get together and start sh*t talking Hannah G, and I’ve been wondering when the women would start to realize that little miss innocent over here was actually just a life-size doll commissioned by ABC execs, designed to every man’s dream measurements, and intended to f*ck up all the women’s good times. Dylan, like the sad sad soul he is, decides to approach Hannah to find out what’s going on between her and Blake. Because I guess the BDSM madam that usually beats the sh*t out of …
