Who's Your Porn Star Doppelganger?

Did you ever wonder what adult film star you most resemble? No? Well, maybe some perv you've encountered in your personal life would like to know so that he can jerk off to you with some visual aids. That's basically how two porn sites—that use facial-recognition technology to match user-submitted photos of regular people to porn stars—are marketing their services, urging customers to upload pictures of their "fantasy girls" to find her hot lookalike. Of course, it's sketchier and more insidious than that.

Face Match, a feature of the site Naughty America allows users to submit a picture URL or upload photos from their desktops or mobile devices. Then matches are made and the user can then follow links to watch sex scenes of the lookalikes. The problem is that immediately upon doing so, the site says that due to a "high domain volume" they aren't able to process the request immediately and asks for an email address to send you the match. It's a scam to get users' email addresses. As for the examples of previous matches they have on their site, they aren't very good. The matches of "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepson (at left) just bring up brunettes of varying ethnicities. Same deal with Katy Perry, who was matched up with a brown-eyed Latina.

SexFaceFinder works a little differently. Users upload photos and the results are supposed to be actual women available for paid live video chats. The technology seems faulty though. Pictures uploaded of Jenna Jameson and Kim Kardashian—two women who inarguably have the most influential porn looks—yielded no results.

As Live Science points out, while SexFaceFinder isn't as effective, it seems to be on the up-and-up as far as complying with the Federal Trade Commissions recommendations regarding facial-recognition technology. Naughty America seems to be crossing the line a little.

The FTC asks that companies using such technologies "develop reasonable security protections for the information they collect, and sound methods for determining when to keep information and when to dispose of it." Naughty America['s] purportedly user-submitted examples appear to be of private citizens, who may not be aware they've been matched in public to porn stars.
