A book which features straight, gay and lesbian porn for blind people published in Sweden

Porn For The Blind?

29 October 2015

Over in Europe, Swedish artist Nina Linde created an X-rated book for the blind in which a diverse range of people engaged in sex acts featuring straight, gay and lesbian porn.

The revolutionary book ‘Occasionally Blind’ features illustrations in tactile picture form – raised from the page to allow blind people to experience them – with descriptions in Braille.

A number of sexual scenarios are featured, including BDSM and bondage, gay sex, lesbian sex and group sex.

The artist told the Swedish Metro:
“I discovered that there is no porn or erotica at all for the visually impaired. Everyone needs some sexual stimulation!

The book has earned praise from Hakan Thomsson, president of Sweden’s National Federation of the Visually Impaired who said:
“The visually impaired will be able to take part in the book, both through audio and Braille.

“I think that some people imagine that we have no sexuality, which is not true. Visually impaired people are just as sexual as any other!”
