Porn for the blind

Embossed booby mags for blind people

Need I say more? Why should blind people miss out on the action? Ok so maybe the category is a little ironic but it was the closest match I could find...

       I was thinking more along the lines of porn audio books, I don't think this would work very well. Are there any blind people reading this who could give us their opinion?
wagster, Sep 15 2005
  

       I can't see this working somehow.
skinflaps, Sep 15 2005
  

       Yes, it lacks vision ...

       Consider, perhaps, that someone who is free of the unavoidable prejudices of appearances by which the rest of us are dogged, and who is restricted to explore the pleasures of tactile sensation, and who, in the dark, is not at all in the dark, has a better lot in that sphere of interaction than most people.   

       Love is, after all, blind.

       [Murdoch], rearrange the following words : pot, kettle, black. Fanny assisted oven ? (see link).
neilp, Sep 15 2005
  

       rearrange the following words: hah hah.
skinflaps, Sep 15 2005
  

       I'll rearrange you, punk.
Detly, Sep 15 2005
  

       Punk, you.

       I think they already market latex and silicone models of the necessarily erotic body parts that blind people could certainly use to get that ultimate participation in the baser enjoyments of society. However, I can imagine a magazine such as Playboy or Esquire publishing an embossed photo spread as a gimmic. I'm voting for this idea just on it's novelty. Erotic embossed post cards? Hmmm...This really has certain advertising charm.

       Photos for the blind -- thick?
reensure, Sep 15 2005
  

       given that a google search produces multiple entries, and that tactile feedback devices with Internet capabilities already exist, I would think that this is an idea whose time has come, and gone.
theircompetitor, Sep 15 2005
  

       After eyeballing this idea and the caning it got, I agree it's a dog.

       <and wondering what he heck 'mags' are>

       I like it. There is a long line of wonderful ideas of this ilk on the HB, and this concept is clearly a scion of that tree. An ugly cousin, admittedly. Similar ideas, in my opinion, include sign language poetry /yodelling (seperate ideas, although poetry yodelling...hmmm...) and the many fine braille spinoffs.   

       I also like the idea of erotic embossing. I envision this as gold and scarlet curves and nubbins: sort of a textural Klimt painting.

       can be read one handed?
schmendrick, Sep 15 2005
  

       Scratch and sniff. Who needs to see?
Dasher, Sep 16 2005
  

       Pornography is the reason I went blind in the first place.

       [kaeru]Do you want some "ille"?

Fishrat, Sep 17 2005
  

       [Dub] I give up. What is "ille"? And yes I want some.
kaeru, Sep 17 2005
  

       Clearly.

       Robin Hood Men in Tight's (Mel Brooks film, hilarious)   

       In the beginning, when Robin Hood just gets home (which has been towed away) finds Blinken (the blind guy) feeling an embossed picture of a nude woman.   

       I'd say that this is baked.
DesertFox, Sep 17 2005
  

       [kaeru] Bra-less Braille, of course! Sad, I know. It was late.
Dub, Sep 17 2005
  

       Suppose you could merge this with all those runway ideas and have a Pamela Anderson shaped runway...
