A deaf man who can’t get off the fact that there’s no subtitles during his enjoyment of adult films that he’s decided to sue Pornhub over the issue.

The New York Post reported Yaroslav Suris of Brooklyn, N.Y., has filed a class-action lawsuit against the adult video site stating the lack of closed captioning violates his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act because he can’t interpret the sounds of moaning and skin slapping in porn flicks because of his hearing impairment.

In the lawsuit, Suris claimed he viewed a number of sexually-explicit videos on Pornhub, which included such titillating titles as: “Hot Step Aunt Babysits Disobedient Nephew – Sofi Ryan – Family Therapy,” “18 YO Blonde Stripper Samantha DP In Homemade Gangbang Porn,” “A— Lesbian Action and Dirty Talk” and “Sexy Cop Gets Witness To Talk.”


However, because of the lack of captioning in the films, he couldn’t fully enjoy his monkey-spanking sessions.

“The websites are ‘places of public accommodation’ which deny equal access to their video content which is available to hearing individuals and violates the ADA,” the lawsuit stated, as reported by the Post.

The randy Suris also claims he signed up for Pornhub Premium, the adult site’s subscription service which features millions of skin flicks.

According to the United States Department of Labour, the Americans with Disabilities Act forbids discrimination against individuals with disabilities in areas of “employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government programs and services.”

Through the lawsuit, Suris is seeking financial compensation, civil penalties and fines from Pornhub.

In an interview with TMZ, Porhub’s vice president Corey Price said he understands Suris “is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos.”

Price said Pornhub doesn’t normally comment on lawsuits, “we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category.”
The audio wasn't all that much in those films

What's the definition of "abuse"? Asking for a friend...

Abuse = needing to talk to an ED doc about it. As long as you can avoid the lightning strike or other need for an ED visit, it just counts as 'use'.

I've been told that marijuana abuse is not sharing. I suppose the same thing could be said about alcohol or cocaine abuse.
