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.

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. 

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

Corey Price, Vice President of Pornhub, said in a statement: ‘We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing impaired access to our videos. 

‘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.’ 

There does appear to be a ‘closed captioning’ section on Pornhub’s website, containing a little more than 400 videos.
