A couple have shot an explicit sex scene while cruising down the highway in a self-driving car.
The video, filmed inside a #Tesla Model X set on ‘Autopilot’ mode went viral on Pornhub last week and made ‘Tesla’ the trending search term on the site.
While the car drives itself, independent porn star Taylor Jackson and her boyfriend get down to business in front of the camera for almost ten minutes.
‘Earlier this year I was on a road trip with my boyfriend and he asked me to have sex with him while driving,’ Jackson told tech site The Register.
‘We both thought it was hot and joked about doing it again and putting it on Pornhub. We thought someone had to have done it before so we looked it up, but we couldn’t find a single video. A few weeks later I signed up for a Pornhub account and this video was one of the first few videos I made.’
The video notched up over two million views in a couple of days and attracted a flood of comments from PornHub’s users.

Pornhub posted a screengrab of the video to Instagram and commented that it would report Jackson to Tesla CEO Elon Musk for ‘not having two hands on the wheel with autopilot enabled’.
Tesla has been slowly adding software updates to its cars to make the Autopilot feature more autonomous. Once enabled, it allows Teslas to keep pace with other cars as well as change lanes and merge with traffic without any input from the driver.
However, Autopilot is designed to help people drive, not fully take over control. In the Autopilot manual, Tesla reminds customers: ‘Never depend on these components to keep you safe. ‘It is the driver’s responsibility to stay alert, drive safely and be in control of the vehicle at all times.’
The company has also added a prompt for drivers to keep their hands on the wheel after several accidents caused by people who thought the car would drive itself.
Back in March, jaw-dropping footage emerged showing a Tesla driver fast asleep behind the wheelof his car as it traveled down a busy freeway at 75mph. The unidentified man was pictured snoozing while the dark electric car drove down an interstate in La Puente, California, using the autopilot feature.
And as for Jackson and her boyfriend, they caution against enjoying a quickie in a self-driving car.
‘I have experienced Autopilot a lot so I did feel safe,’ she told The Register. ‘Most of the highway we were on was straight. We did have one scare where I hit the steering wheel and knocked it out of Autopilot mode. I wouldn’t recommend it since it is dangerous.’
Tesla, predictably, hasn’t commented on the video yet.
