BRAILLE GAY SEX BOOK CREATED FOR THE BLIND


When it comes to erotica and pornography, the blind and visually impaired have been kept in the dark – until now.

Swedish artist Nina Linde has created a Braille sex book which features straight, gay and lesbian porn.

The X-rated book Occasionally Blind features images that are raised from the page and descriptions in Braille to allow blind people to experience them.

The book is about sexual stimulation – I don’t think ‘porn’ is the right word,” Ms Linde said.

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.

The visually impaired will be able to take part in the book, both through audio and Braille.” he said.

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.”

Currently, the book is only available in Swedish, but Ms Linde hopes it may be translated in to other languages.
