The recent post on the ban on accessing pornography unearthed another aspect of ‘viewing’ pornography through one of the ‘possibly related posts’ that WordPress started featuring on the blogs that appear on its respective sites. This time the one that grabbed my attention was Sex Drive: Talk Dirty, Descriptively in Porn for the Blind and brought into focus one aspect that neither Java nor I had even stopped to consider in the past.

We’re not going to be politically correct and do the ‘visually impaired’ number here, as for us ‘blind’ pretty much cuts across the bullshit and is the most appropriate word to describe a person who can not see. Anyway, although we knew that blind folk are also subject to sexual urges and fantasies, we never really stopped to consider the dilemma they would be in if they wanted to ‘see’ pornographic material.

As the site describes it, Porn for the Blind “..is a nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Mass., was established for the sole purpose of making the millions of free porn clips available online accessible to people with visual impairments”. There are more interesting observations on Sex Drive regarding the methods and procedures involved in creating opportunities for blind folk who are into ‘porn’ to get their rocks off.

And why not?
