I know it’s pornography when I see it

But what if you don’t? That’s exactly the case when you pick up a copy of Playboy in braille. Launched by Playboy Enterprises, Braille Playboy (as the magazine for the unsighted is known) raises many questions, among them: How do you explain a naked woman to a pubescent, visually-impaired teen? Of course, if you don’t know how to read braille, you won’t know the difference between an ad and a description of something naughty.

I know it's pornography when I see it 1The braille edition includes raised concentric circles, similar to contour maps, to suggest a woman’s contours. By counting the raised circles, the reader will be able to determine any model’s bra size and have a good idea of the approximate dimension of her breasts.

Proof that blind people enjoy pornography too, although they are the only ones who can truly claim that they read it just for the articles.
