A certain Yaroslav Suris, a US citizen, filed a lawsuit against Pornhub due to the fact that it is difficult for deaf and hard of hearing people like him to figure out the subjects of porn videos since they lack subtitles.

The plaintiff claims that in this way the platform infringes people with similar restrictions. Moreover, this is a violation of the American Disability Act. According to him, without subtitles it is usually difficult for him to make out the dialogs — abstract headers do not really say anything.

He believes that in this scenario, the premium account loses all meaning. Therefore, in court, he wants to ensure that Pornhub adds subtitles (they are available in some videos) and compensate for the purchased subscription to the porn site.

Representatives of the company did not comment directly on the lawsuit, but noted that the service has a category of clips with subtitles. However, there were a few of them — only 410. For comparison, in the “Amateur” section alone there are more than 287 thousand adult videos.
