Pornographic magazine for the blind launched
The Telegraph ^ | 12 Apr 2010

Posted on 04/12/2010 10:13:09 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A pornographic magazine for the blind has been launched - complete with explicit text and raised pictures of naked men and women.

The book, the brainchild of Lisa Murphy and called Tactile Minds, is designed to be 'enjoyed' by the blind and visually impaired - and is on sale for £150. Among the 17 raised images include a naked woman in a 'disco pose', a woman with 'perfect breasts' and a 'male love robot'.

Canadian Lisa says that she made the book to fill a gap in the market, adding: "There are no books of tactile pictures of nudes for adults.

"We're breaking new ground. Playboy has an edition with Braille wording, but there are no pictures." She said that she made the book after realising that the 'blind have been left out in a culture saturated with sexual images'.

Between 1970 and 1985 Playboy printed copies of its famous magazine in braille - but without raised pictures.

I guess they don’t have to worry about it making them go blind.

I am afraid we will need some consumer protection agency to be sure the blind are not “looking” at ugly naked people . Unfettered capitalism can be cruel .

I’ve actually seen a Braille Playboy magazine. It was printed on what looked like paper bag material. I wonder if the blind were just as bored as I was with the Norman Mailer articles.

Will there be soft porn versions for the slightly sensitive blind and hard core for the depraved blind?

Indeed....the blind can be mentally ill as well.
Unfortunately, they also vote as we found out back in 2008.
