Burning man would be a lot of fun if it wasn't in the desert and they weren't based off of a terrible Nick Cage movie.

Or, I suppose, current users who are in the process of going blind.

Braille for 'porn' is sticky.

a "Described Video" category, in which videos include a scripted voiceover that describes each scene in extensive detail.

That sounds like a fun job.

That photo serves as both the beginning and the end of the Internet.

so, now there's porn for blind people, after you've gone blind through masturbation, what happens next?

Quite possibly

I feel bad for all the blind people who don't know that someone walked in on them flapping.

And what about Anne Frank? Blind and deaf, she would be entirely unaware that someone is a few feet away while she is jilling off.

And yet, she was still able to write a diary.

The video opens with a young white girl wearing a t-shirt and short-shorts sitting in her apartment. There is a knock on the door. She opens it to reveal a pizza deliveryman...

Snark aside.  I read the article, and they are making a conscious effort to make their site more accessible for the visually impaired.

Pornhub embracing accessibility matters more than you might think, and not just because of the titillating content. According to analytics service Alexa, Pornhub is the 38th largest site on the internet. More people visit it on a daily basis than do Ebay, or Imgur, or Wordpress. When web properties of that size act, it has an immediate, tangible impact for millions of people.

"Accessibility obviously is very important," says Danielsen. "We believe that all websites that are providing products or services to the public should use accessibility best practices."

Now, the world's largest porn site has done just that, with particularly challenging content. And with the upgrade, whatever excuses the rest of the web may have had not to do the same have officially faded from view.

Good for Pornhub

Insensitive if you ask me. How do you think they got that way in the first place?

Besides making the site accessible to more users, most of the W3C and Section 508 checkpoints are good from an SEO perspective as well. So making your site accessible is a win/win proposal.

In my day, we had alt.sex.stories.

And we liked it fine.

/As long as you didn't go too deep into the subthreads. Ick.
//Alternatively, like half of the Urban fantasy books and almost all "Romance" novels will fit the bill.
