Redditors Are Using Deepfakes To Make Witcher Porn To Nobody’s Surprise

If you’ve played the Witcher games, you’re probably familiar with the various sexual exploits of its sterile protagonist, Geralt of Rivia. The game makes something of a habit out of Geralt being able to hire prostitutes or get into bed with various women, and now various Redditors are making Witcher porn.

They’re able to accomplish this through making use of a process called deadfakes, which use AIs in order to take the faces of characters from one video and put them on the faces of people in another video. In this case they’ve been using characters like Triss Merigold or Yennifer of Vengerberg, Geralt’s two sorceress paramours in the Witcher games. The two are unfortunately finding themselves superimposed onto actual porn (and if we know the internet it’s likely lesbian porn).

While deadfaking isn’t exactly perfect (it sometimes slips, meaning that it distorts the faces, often horrifically, if it can’t keep up), it’s also not exactly ethical. After all, I highly doubt that Yennefer and Triss’s actresses would like their likenesses being put in a porn video for some horny teenager to jack off on.

The Witcher porn idea also brings up a lot more disturbing implications; there’s plenty of weird fetishes throughout the internet, and if Yennefer and Triss can be used in deepfake, there’s nothing stopping gamers from being able to deepfake other characters into porn as well, human (like in Overwatch) or otherwise. Can you guys say Sonic the Hedgehog porn?

Either way, there’s a lot of disturbing things that can be done both in terms of the actors that play these characters, and the characters themselves. So far Witcher porn seems to be our only worry, but considering there’s now a deadfaking subreddit there’s no telling what other stuff might come up in the future.

That’s the risk you run with the Internet, it seems.
