Why should the blind miss out on all the fun? Braille editions of the famous magazine are being printed since 1970. Read more

I have seen this but I had no idea it was for real. Blind people read adult magazines too...

The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) has started publishing a Braille edition of the famous Playboy magazine in 1970. The Braille version includes all the written words in the non-Braille magazine, but no pictorial representations. That has to be a little frustrating.

Congress cut off funding for the Braille magazine translation in 1985, but a U.S. Federal District Court Judge reversed the decision on First Amendment grounds.
