For a minute there I thought he was suing over lack of subtleties.

Let's be honest, does he really think he is going to gain any insight by hearing the dialogue? Anyone? Bueller?

Subtitles for what? Explaining the plot of a porn film?
'Dangerous Liaisons' it ain't.

I read Playboy for the articles and watch Pornhub for the sparkling dialogue. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

I don't even want to know what accommodations a blind man would demand.

One of the subtitles would have to be "[Cheesy repetitive music]".

Plot? This is Pornhub. They don't need no stinkin' plot.

What happened to lip reading ?

"Alleged" lack of subtitles? The reporter didn't check it out? Riiiiight..

This is definitely a case that epitomizes the old axiom whereby "actions speak louder than words."

Robin Williams once said it might be a good idea to hire Shakespearean actors for porn movies:
“Surely I shalt mount thee and ride till cometh the dawn!”
“Oh, but flaccid member thou art not mine!”

I think that PornHub should hire a person using the sign language to translate the conversation.

I envision the Garrett Morris closed-captioning skit from the original SNL.

Let's see..."Yes! Yes! Yes!"

There. All done!
