Glasses Pornhub now offers porn for visually impaired

Pornhub wants to make its videos accessible to everyone.

The porn site released a new category of videos for people who are visually impaired called "Described Video" on Wednesday.

Wouldn't written porn stories make more sense. While not every porn writer is fluidly descriptive, as a general matter, I would expect people who are trying to write things interestingly would be better at it. OTOH, professional copy writers may have honed their skills to be able to translate things from image to words better than the average amateur to semi-professional porn story writer, including knowing more synonyms (and let's face it, there are a few basic concepts that will need a TON of synonyms!).

Do you mean a written story that is then recorded as an erotic reading? Because a written porn story would be most likely be read by an unemotional text-to-reader.

Well, yes, that is what I meant, but why should it be read any more unemotionally than the narrative description of porn films?

Of course, there is probably a fetish for dirty talk via electronic voice, a la Stephen Hawking. But I'll bet most of us cannot think of dirty talk in that voice without laughing.

I could see it coming. I mean it. Seriously.
Several months ago I made reference in some discussion (it may even have been here) to providing descriptive service for the blind on porn videos as an interesting, eyebrow raising job description to list. I wasn't being wholly serious, but I'm not surprised to read that such a profession now exists.
I feel a bit as if someone stole my idea.
