You can now watch Kim K.'s sex tape with narration.

Pornhub is making its sexxxy material accessible to even more users wanting to get off. 

On Wednesday morning, the triple-X behemoth launched its Described Video category, which features audio descriptions of every bump and grind happening for 50 of its top-viewed videos—spanning the straight, female-friendly, gay, bi, and trans categories. Geared toward the visually impaired, the videos feature narrations from professional voice actors and even Pornhub Aria, so that those unable to watch the video can follow along audibly and not miss a nipple fondle or pelvic thrust.

The campaign is part of the adult entertainment website's Pornhub Cares, its philanthropic division that has sponsored other campaigns such as Save the Boobs to spread breast cancer awareness and the $25,000 Pornhub Cares Sponsorship

"The voiceovers provide visually impaired listeners with enhanced descriptions of things like what the models look like, what they are wearing, how they are moving and when they switch positions in each scene that they normally wouldn’t necessarily gather from listening to the original audio alone," Pornhub Vice President Corey Price told the Daily Dot in an email. "Your average video doesn’t provide such descriptors in dialogue. It might include conversation and dialogue among actors, but not in depth descriptions, setting the scene verbally."

Pornhub's Described Audio section (link obviously NSFW) features the multi-genre videos available that are with the feature. There's even some pretty famous sex tapes in the mix, including Kim Kardashian's. Yup, now people can get a play-by-play of what goes down in this legendary piece of pop culture.

Outside of Pornhub, there are other resources for getting off via audible moaning and narration on how the fucking's going. Tumblr blog Audio Porn has an archive full of intimate, orgasming tracks. And the first site that comes up when you Google "audio porn" is ListenToPo.com, a similar site that lets masturbators stimulate themselves with erotic sounds.

But as Price points out, Pornhub's new category differs from these other options because you're getting such specific descriptions of "the plot," if you will. Listeners are told what's going in what hole and how fast or how hard—painting the entire naughty scene. Because grunts and "Oh, my gods" of ecstasy can only communicate so much. 

In non-porn entertainment, other companies have also launched similar projects to make their content more accessible by the visually impaired community. In April 2015, Netflix started adding audio descriptions to various series, starting with Daredevil, which features a Marvel superhero who lost his eyesight as a child. Since then, the streaming service has added the feature to even more titles, including other Netflix originals such as Fuller House and classics such as Arrested Development and Disney's Tarzan

In the scenes Pornhub made available in its press release, all the narrations were spot on. But a couple of the videos didn't balance the descriptive audio track and original audio tracks too well. Some of the original audio tracks were turned down so low that it was hard to hear what was going on between the narrated parts. That could also be attributed to uneven levels in the original audio tracks. Others were better balanced, with the sounds of bodies smanging and sultry, heavy breathing in harmony with the voiceovers. 

"This initiative is meant to mark the start of a larger dialogue surrounding accessibility and our site and how we can do better," Price says. 

Not only is Pornhub sparking conversations about bringing in differently abled users, but the site has backed its talk with its actual executables. They also hope that users will send their feedback and comments to accessibility@pornhub.com.

All of this sounds like the beginning to a happy ending for everyone.

How a porn director and a disabled activist are making panic attacks sexy
There’s nothing sexy about a panic attack. They manifest differently for different people, but in general a panic attack can feel like drowning without air, like a million tiny needles entering the brain, like waves of heat and freezing cold on the skin. Panic attacks often accompany diagnosable mental health conditions like PTSD and anxiety—and frankly, they suck.
