Pornhub is Bringing Porn to the Blind

There are certain things in life that no one should miss out on and somewhere in that list you have to include porn. This doesn’t mean you have to consume porn, it just means you should be able to no matter what.

So what about people who can’t actually watch porn; the visually impaired? Have they been missing out on a whole world of dirty goodness? Well if they were Pornhub is making moves to ensure that they aren’t anymore.

On Wednesday the popular porn site released a new category of videos specifically for the visually impaired called “Described Video.”

The idea is essentially a voice over that describes the scene, the people in the scene, and their exact actions, paired with the audio track of the video.

In a statement to CNN Pornhub explained “Each video includes special narration that has been tailored and crafted to give the user full enjoyment of the scene, the original audio remains intact but will act as an underscore to the scene.”

This is a huge leap in inclusivity on all media fronts. Audio porn already exists, and it’s actually kind of awesome and worth giving a shot, but this is a whole new level of ensuring that everyone has access to simple things we don’t even think about.

Porn might be considered a luxury, but sexual health and satisfaction, shouldn’t and giving an entire population access to some more sexual freedom is a step in the right direction.

Right now the project is launching with 50 videos, picked from Pornhub’s most viewed videos, and voice overs are provided by professional actors. The new initiative falls under Pornhub Cares, the platform’s philanthropic group, which has also sponsored things like scholarships, and raised money for breast cancer testicular cancer, and domestic violence awareness.

Props go to Pornhub for reminding us that pleasure is for everyone!
