You Feelin' Me ???
There's now a pornographic magazine for the blind. It's co-ed which means the photographs feature both naked men and women. They're in 3-D, with Braille texts describing the bodies. The magazine is the brainchild of artist Lisa Murphy, who says the natural curves of the human body are easily replicated in Braille. She says (quote) "The blind have been left out in a culture saturated with sexual image. We're breaking new ground. I took photographs of my friends in lingerie, blew up the images, and hand-sculpted them into clay for a 3-D effect."
