You don't need to see porn in order to enjoy it.

There's one thing about porn and porn sites: they really try to have something for everybody, no matter what your taste is (as long as it isn't illegal). Unfortunately, that "something for everybody" attitude didn't include the blind or the visually impaired.

But the popular adult entertainment site, Pornhub, has changed all that. They've added a NSFW described video category to their list of offerings. Described video is an entire channel of audio-focused content for the visually impaired.

"It's our way of giving back, and we're excited to hear what people think," Pornhub Vice President Corey Price told The Huffington Post. "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, given the relative ambiguity of the concept and the sheer number of people who are visually impaired around the world."

Pornhub offers 50 described videos made from its top-viewed straight, female-friendly, gay, and bi videos, and includes the Kim Kardashian sex tape, a Star Wars porn parody, and a take off on Full House called Air Full Holes (as far as porn titles go, that one sucks).

These new videos include a verbal description of exactly what's happening, down to every position change and detailed descriptions of the scene, costumes, bodies, plot and actors. The original audio remains as an underscore to the scene, but the added narration helps to give a fuller experience for the blind and visually impaired audience.

The audio-enhanced videos use professional voice talent Pornhub Aria, the site's social media personality to narrate the scene.

To get a taste of what the described videos are like, Pornhub created this SFW sizzle reel with excerpts from a few of the films included in the described video library.

"We encourage our users to check out our newest category and provide feedback based on their experience. With programs like this, we hope to open the door and inspire our communicty members, content partners and other platforms to create more content with the differently-abled user in mind," Price told The Daily Mail.

If the described videos go over well, Pornhub is considering adding some closed-captions grunts and moans for the hearing-impaired audience.
