So, a Couple Finally Used Tesla Autopilot in Porn

We knew this day would come. Though, perhaps not this soon.

It didn’t take long for the first mainstream drivers to realize the automobile’s potential as a place where they could get busy. The early 20th century was a much more puritanical time. Cars meant that you could get away from mom and dad to get some much-needed alone time with that cute neighbor who was making eyes at you during last weekend’s box social.

These early horndog motorists were also very quick to realize the potential of self-driving to take these rudimentary fuck machines to the next level. In 1983’s The Automobile and American Culture, Ford historian David Lewis describes a postcard from the 1930s where a female passenger asks the male driver to keep both hands on the wheel. “If only the car would steer itself,” was his reply. Those 1930s ad-men knew their way around a euphemism.

As mainstream cars with ever-greater autonomous capabilities hit the roads, then, it was only a matter of time before people started banging in them. Some of these sex-havers think there’s money to be made. These naturally include adult performers, who are always interested in finding new sources of novelty and who are starting to seize on this opportunity by using increasingly autonomous cars. Most recently, an adult performer named Taylor Jackson went viral (on Pornhub, at least) after filming a scene in what appears to be a Tesla driving on Autopilot.

Taylor didn’t immediately respond to our request for comment, but it does appear that she is something of a self-driving-car-sex pioneer. Though it’s illegal, it definitely appears that her partner takes his hands off the wheel for at least part of the encounter, and when Pornhub’s (somewhat) SFW Instagram account tweeted an image from the video, they said they were “reporting” her to “Elon.”

Tesla Autopilot has been in the news more than usual recently, and it was even the subject of a special investor event at Tesla, where CEO Elon Musk said the self-driving capabilities would be safe enough for passengers to remove their hands from the wheel by the end of the year.

He also announced that Tesla’s self-driving capabilities would be so much more advanced than competitors that present-day Teslas would actually grow in value as more autonomy capabilities are added, an idea that’s been treated as something of an anathema in the automotive industry.

With boasts like that, it’s little surprise that some entrepreneurial-minded adult entertainers are looking to carve out followings using this emerging new technology.

After all, adult content has often been at the technological foreground for the very simple reason that it has to be. When an industry is stigmatized, it needs to be innovative, and when you need to innovate, you come up with ideas like how to process online credit card transactions anonymously, or how to invest and build wealth using bitcoin.

Though likely illegal and extremely dangerous, Jackson (or the performer who goes by Jackson) is carrying on that spirit of innovation by pushing the limits of new tech and seeing just what Musk’s self-driving robo-Teslas are capable of. We just hope she was on an empty road, and that her scene partner was paying more attention to his driving than he seemed.
