Bongo book for the blind raises eyebrows, but what else will it raise?

13 April 2010


You might be a blind chap or chapette who is having this website read to you by a kindly person or clever computer but is actually bored senseless with it all and looking for something a bit racier instead.

If that’s the case, you probably need porn for the blind – and yes, such a thing does exist. A book, ‘Tactile Minds’ has been launched, designed especially for the blind and visually impaired. It contains 17 raised images of humans in varying stages of the act of yankee doodle. They include 'disco pose', a woman with 'perfect breasts' and a 'male love robot'.

Canadian Lisa Murphy is behind the book and she says that she made the book after realising that the 'blind have been left out in a culture saturated with sexual images'. She’s also realised that they’ll be prepared to pay £150 for an experience they can more or less get from touching up the naked dummies in C&A. We’re not entirely sure she’s right.

Meanwhile, in other filth-related news, Bulgarian do-gooders have banned a billboard ad for Penthouse magazine that featured a woman's eye rotated by 90 degreees to make it look like a woman's doo-dah. You can see it here if you've got a strong enough stomach.

    i think for £150 they could pay a few people to act it out for them instead of touching a crappy book
