A deaf man is suing Pornhub for violating the American Disabilities Act (ADA) by not having subtitles on their salacious videos.

Yaroslav Suris has filed a class-action lawsuit against the international porn site claiming its lack of subtitles is a denial of access, TMZ reports.

Suris shared that he had tried to watch titles that included ‘Hot Step Aunt Babysits Disobedient Nephew,’ ‘Sexy Cop Gets Witness to Talk’ and ‘Daddy 4K — Allison comes to Talk About Money to Her Boys’ Naughty Father,’ but couldn’t get through the dialogue in the flicks for lack of subtitles.

Pornhub announced in 2018 that they were putting closed captioning with some videos.
Inquiries to similar websites RedTube, YouPorn and Brazzers found that only the latter had an actual ‘closed caption’ section – but only with 12 videos. RedTube had 1226 that were searchable under closed caption while YouPorn also allowed for closed caption videos to be searched.

Court documents state that Suris believes a lack of closed captioning violates their rights under ADA.

According to the US Department of Labor, the ADA ‘prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government’ programs and services.’

The disgruntled porn seeker also said that he and others have purchased Pornhub’s premium subscription, hoping that would alleviate the issue but it did not.

Suris is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages and for Pornhub to add closed captioning to its videos.
