Great news! Porn isn't just for people who can watch porn anymore. In a new endeavor branded with the altruistic phrase "PornHub Cares," PornHub is making a move that is equal parts ingenuity and brute capitalism by appealing to the one audience base it hasn't been able to capture yet: the visually impaired.

For obvious reasons, there's a lot to be missed in porn if you are limited visually. Sure, you can hear the occasional sex sounds, but if you can't see, how are you supposed to be able to tell the difference between the sound of slapping balls and somebody forming hamburger patties?

PornHub has decided they can do better.

Enter their new porn category, "Descriptive Porn." Pornhub's taken their most popular films in varying genres and described them in detail for those who can't see.

"Each video includes special narration that has been tailored and crafted to give the user full enjoyment of the scene," CNN reported based on a statement from PornHub. "The original audio remains intact but will act as an underscore to the scene."

So basically, descriptive porn is to the blind as closed captioning is to the deaf.

Here's their safe for work YouTube demo so you can see what its like to hear what the stars are doing and wearing as described by professional voice actors. (If porn has taught us anything, it's that amateur voice actors are coming next.)

"A white woman in a cheap-looking red power suit..." Damn, this narrator is savage af.

Strictly out of journalistic integrity, Someecards has decided to check out the NSFW versions, just to make sure PornHub is really doing its job.

Here's a still image and related caption from a particularly artistic film. Enjoy.

"...You can also see the silhouette of a coniferous tree beside her– or a bush– so it looks like she is outside of an apartment, doing a dance for us."

Yup, it's all there, even acknowledgment for all the hard work of the porn set designer.

Of course, descriptive porn has applications beyond meeting the needs of the visually impaired. This is something you can listen to on your headphones at work while your screen shows you are writing an article, for example. Your bosses will never know.
