Porn juggernaut and gift from above PornHub is giving back to the community in a big way. To let blind viewers (listeners?) enjoy their hot content, the Hub has implemented “descriptive videos.” These videos will give blind jackers a live narration of the scene they want to partake in.
From Hip Daily:
“It’s our way of giving back and we really want to know what people think,” said Corey Price, who is Vice President of Operations at PornHub. “With over 60 million people visiting our site each day, we did feel it important to start to include this type of more accessible content on our platform although given the relative ambiguity of the concept and the sheer number of people who are visually impaired around the world.”
Scripting and having the clips narrated seemed quite the challenge, relates Price.
“We put a considerable amount of effort into having the scripts for the loaded audio tracks to be descriptive and enticing; adding enough while leaving enough space for the video’s original audio and have everything matching up just right.”
It’s a suave move by the sultans of smut. Everyone loves porn, and not being able to see shouldn’t prevent someone from getting their rocks off like everyone else. Sex sells, and bringing in a new medium is opening up clicks to a whole new demographic.
The real beauty of PornHub’s new feature is that it’s maintaining its core viewership. After years of screen glare and masturbation-induced blindness, porn enthusiasts will still be able to “watch” busty babes take mammoth loads in their free time. Retention is a must in the porn community, and giving avid viewers the ability to do what they love until their arms fall off is the right thing to do.
Now, I haven’t given these scenes a listen yet. However, if my predisposition to dirty talk is any indication, something tells me they’re pretty awesome. I can’t tell you exactly where to find them, but you know where to start searching. Also, if you feel embarrassed for the blind folks that might stumble upon this, just know that they can’t read it anyway.
