porn for the blind…i just can’t see it being any good!

September 11th, 2008


Porn for the Blind is a non-profit organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts which offers sexual stimuli for blind people over the internet. Created in 2005, it has become a fast-growing phenomenon, providing an otherwise unavailable service for millions of people. The service operates through the medium of a website, Pornfortheblind.org, [CAUTION: link has sexual content] composed of links to mp3 sound clips of pornographic content contributed by volunteers.

Since pornography is primarily designed for visual media, there have been few methods for the sightless to enjoy this type of entertainment. A ‘translator’ will watch existing clips or videos and give a play-by-play of the events. In order to maintain the feeling and mood of the program, very descriptive detail will be given to parts that enhance the mood, while other details, such as curtain color or other unimportant items, will be left out of the scene. This helps the listener follow the action, and enjoy this type of program that has been mostly unavailable to them.

So I ask you, do you think this is really something that is helpful to blind people?

    Helpful in what sense? What makes porn helpful for those that can see? If you argue educational purposes, I suppose it’s just a matter of how well this “translator” can convey what’s going on. As far as entertainment…why not?
