Woman Creates 3-D Erotic Book For the Blind

April 12th, 2010 04:49 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

Lisa J. Murphy has written an erotic book with tactile images for that special visually impaired porn connoisseur in your life. Tactile Mind contains explicit softcore raised images, along with Braille text and photos. From the article: “A photographer with a certificate in Tactile Graphics from the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Murphy learned to create touchable images of animals for books for visually impaired children. Then she realized that there was a lack of such books for adults only. ‘There are no books of tactile pictures of nudes for adults, at least the last time I looked around,’ says Murphy. ‘We’re breaking new ground. Playboy has [an edition with] Braille wording, but there are no pictures.’ She says that while we live in a culture saturated with sexual images, the blind have been ‘left out.’”

    Thank you for your article.
    I just wanted to let you know,as I am letting everyone know – I have never referred to this work as porn – people everywhere have expressed their own opinions on my work, and are entitled to their own opinions.
