A pornographic magazine for the blind, complete with saucy text and raised pictures of naked men and women, has been launched probably for the first time in the world.

The book, the brainchild of Lisa Murphy and called Tactile Minds, is designed to be "enjoyed" by the blind and visually impaired - and is on sale for 150 pounds.

The 17 raised images include a naked woman in a "disco pose", a woman with "perfect breasts" and a "male love robot", The Daily Telegraph reported.

According to Lisa, she made the book to fill a gap in the market. "There are no books of tactile pictures of nudes for adults. We're breaking new ground. Playboy has an edition with Braille wording, but there are no pictures."

The Canadian said she made the book after realising that the "blind have been left out in a culture saturated with sexual images".

Between 1970 and 1985, Playboy printed copies of its famous magazine in braille - but without raised pictures.
