Playboy Website Sued For Not Being Accessible To The Blind; Hef's Auction

You may not be aware, but Playboy has a huge fanbase of blind readers. While some may joke that they only buy the adult magazine for the articles, that's actually true. Playboy even puts out a braille edition.

So as crazy as it sounds, there's some merit to the case. A blind man is suing Playboy under the American with Disabilities Act, claiming that their website doesn't work with screen reading software.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Donald Nixon filed the class action suit alleging that he and other visually impaired people "cannot fully and equally use or enjoy the facilities, products, and services."

Nixon is asking for "unspecified damages" and to have update its accessibility.

Do you think Nixon has a point? Can he win? Have you come across any good articles in the magazine? Do people believe you when you say you actually read Playboy?

In other Playboy news (because we keep ), founder Hugh Hefner's signature pipe, slippers, and robe are some of the hundreds of items going up for auction this week.  

The late Hefner's red smoking jacket and captain's hat are among more than 800 personal items on the auction block at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles.  The auction house will be selling the items Friday and Saturday.  Buyers who aren't able to get to L.A. can make bids online.  Hefner died last year at age 91.
