Reddit bans users posting NSFW cyber-porn made with AI image generator

A number of subreddits set up to share AI-generated pornographic images have been shut down by the site.

The ‘front page of the internet’ has blocked at least four forums responsbile for sharing images created with the Stable Diffusion artificial intelligence tool.

Similar to Dall-E Mini, Stable Diffusion creates (sometimes photorealistic) images from text prompts submitted by the user.

While the Dall-E Mini image generator has limits imposed on what users can create, Stable Diffusion does not.

But its creators have implored people not to use it for generating porn.

Despite the warning, plenty of images have been created – including faked celebrity nudes or freaky cyber porn pictures of distorted bodies and faces, often of people that don’t even exist.

Two of the main subreddits where these images have been shared, r/UnstableDiffusion and r/stablediffusionnsfw have been blocked. As have two others: r/PornDiffusion, r/HentaiDiffusion.

Users attempting to access the site are greeted with the message: ‘This subreddit was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s rules against non-consensual intimate media.’

Between them, the four subreddits had around 2,000 members.

‘After hearing from multiple redditors over the years (including recent feedback from some of you who like to read these posts), we’ve learned that unexpectedly stumbling across sexually explicit content is jarring and uncomfortable for a lot of people,’ moderators for the site wrote in 2019 when they embarked on removing porn from r/all, the feed of most popular posts on the platform.
