    Pornhub sued by deaf man over adult video site's alleged lack of subtitles

    A deaf man has reportedly filed a lawsuit against a popular adult video website for alleged rights violations because he says it doesn't provide closed captioning on its videos.

    Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub, which hosts millions of adult videos, claiming the site's lack of subtitles violates the rights of deaf and hearing impaired under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

    The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in areas of "employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government programs and services," according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

    Suris argues that the deaf and hearing impaired can't understand the audio portions of the videos on the site, thus denying them similar access to the content, according to TMZ.

    Pornhub vice president Corey Price -- who says the company usually doesn't comment on pending litigation -- responded to the allegations.

    "We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos," he told the outlet. "While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category."

    In the court documents, Suris listed numerous titles that he watched, such as "Sexy Cop Gets Witness to Talk," but he was completely lost when it came to the dialogue, TMZ said.

    He also claimed that it's pointless for him or others in a similar situation to purchase a premium subscription to the website without the subtitles, according to FOX 10 of Phoenix.

    The blind should sue that they can't see the videos.

    Unbelievable plots, poor dialogue and terrible acting is a major turn off. Unfortunately this is the bulk of porn available these days and this guy should be thankful that there's no captions. Remember '80s porn?

    Just lip read. Here I will watch one right now with the volume down and write the dialogue.

    Woman: Oh oh.
    Dude: Ye-ah.
    Woman: Oh f- yes.
    Dude: mm hm. Ye-ah
    (Spanking sound)
    Woman: Uh uh oh.
    Man: Ye-ah.

    It keeps going on like that.

    I watch it without sound all the time. I'd hate to think Alexa was listening in. She might become jealous. And then who knows what she'd do. Probably order some expensive jewelry off Amazon or have me SWAT'ed.

    Close captions are only mandatory on TV broadcasts. The dude has no standing.

    The government could not even force blu ray player manufactures to reproduce close captions from DVDs. All you can get is subtitles. Too bad if the DVD has only CCs.
