Audio erotic stories for the blind

By | July 26, 2007

Dashiell Bennett, over at Fleshbot wrote providing porn for the visually impaired. The post seemed a bit flippant, but he does have a point. If there are over 140 million visually impaired people in the world, they could potentially enjoy audio erotic stories. And it would be great to be able to reach that market.

I would love to market my erotic hypnosis recordings as “porn for the blind”. They are, after all, audio stories. But I have to ask: How do you attract blind people to a web site? To find my (or any) web site, you have to see the computer screen, see the text that links to my pages, and the buttons that will play the samples. So how do you get the word to blind people that these recordings are available to them? And once they find my web site, how do they know to play the samples or press the “buy now” button?

I can design the pages for better accessibility, but still, how do I get visually impaired people to my site in the first place?
