Google has a pretty strong anti-porn, anti-nudity, and anti-profanity stance regarding Glass. The safe-search controls are a lot stricter, and if you try to curse, it cleans it up with little asterisks. That's not unheard of with dictation features, but with Glass, there's no way to turn off the censor. So, understandably, porn isn't too welcome. Because sometimes there's nudity. And profanity.

James Deen imagined what this all might look like, and the (hilarious) video is here. It's technically nsfw, but there's no real nudity. All thanks to adult app company MiKandi.

What worries me is the control that Google would, or wouldn't have, over video shot with Google Glass. What if someone chooses to save and share a video shot with Glance? Does Google get any say in how its company or products are being represented or used? Remember when a man used the "Playroom" feature on his PlayStation 4 to live-stream his drunk wife as he stripped her?
The app is available for iPhone for free right now, and soon to be launched for Glass. I downloaded it for my phone (blog research, I swear), and it's pretty useless. I can't sync with anyone (that's the app's problem, not mine), so the only thing I can do is record two separate videos and watch them side by side. Which is, ok? I guess? Kinda pointless? Ok, really pointless?
Once it actually comes out, if you do try it with Google Glass and a lover, when you're done, all you have to say is "OK Glass, pull out." Stay classy, Glass.
