porn for the blind?

Pornographic magazine for the blind launchedapparently, a pornographic magazine of the blind has been launched. i’m not making this up.

the pages come complete with explicit text written in braille, and with raised images including those of a naked woman in a ‘disco pose’, a woman with ‘perfect breasts,’ and a ‘male love robot’.

i’ll leave the jokes about ‘raised pages’ and claims of total deprivation to others. but i will ask who in their right mind would fund a business model for a new print magazine (porn or otherwise) when print magazines are in decline (even in the porn industry), when the internet is on the rise? from a business standpoint, i’d imagine a blind consumer would prefer free explicit sounds on the internet (or so i am told that stuff is available online) over the costly printed, ‘raised’ page. (again, purely from a hypothetical business standpoint.)

(i know, i know, i doth protest too much… i just think it’s an odd and hilarious idea.)

here’s an idea: try the bible. there are plenty of evocative verses there:

  • ‘There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.’ ezek 23:20 (niv)
  • ‘My beloved thrust his hand into the opening, and my inmost being yearned for him. I arose to open to my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, upon the handles of the bolt. ‘ song of songs 5:4-5 (nrsv)
