The photos were obtained from the females’ social media accounts and then analyzed by an AI software, which generated a fictitious image of the person without clothes.

Residents in a Spanish village are shocked and distressed after several AI-generated sexual photographs of local teenagers circulated online. According to a BBC story, AI-generated naked photographs of adolescent girls in Almendralejo, aged 11 to 17, have been circulating on social media sites without their knowledge or agreement.

Notably, the images were largely acquired from the ladies’ social media accounts before being processed by an AI tool that generated a bogus image of the individual without clothes. Approximately 20-30 females between the ages of 11 and 17 have come forward as victims.

“One day my daughter came out of school and she said ‘Mum, there are photos circulating of me topless,'” Mara Blanco Rayo, the mother of a 14-year-old, told the BBC. I asked her if she had taken any naked images of herself, and she answered, ‘No, Mum, these are phony photos of females that are being generated a lot right now, and there are other girls in my class that this has occurred to as well.’

Dr. Miriam Al Adib, the mother of one of the victims, stated in an Instagram video that the modified images are disturbing everyone, especially her 14-year-old daughter.

”If I didn’t know my daughter’s body, this shot would appear to be real. You (the perpetrators) are unaware of the harm you are causing. ”Using photographs to make and distribute this filthy content is a severe crime,’ she said. 

“Don’t be afraid to report such acts, girls.” Inform your mothers. “Affected mothers, please contact me so that you can join the group that we’ve formed,” she continued.

Local authorities are currently working with 11 complaints from victims, all of whom are children. The parents of the affected children have also formed a support group to assist them in their ordeal. 

According to the BBC, at least 11 local lads were involved in the fabrication of the photographs or their distribution via the WhatsApp and Telegram apps. They are also investigating a report that a bogus image of one of the girls was used to extort her.

A local police spokesperson told AFP that the persons behind the “manipulated photos of underage girls” pasted their innocent features onto the “bodies of other people” in other images.
