Wasteland.com Now Offering Closed Captioned BDSM Content

LOS ANGELES — Wasteland.com has announced its addition of closed captioning for the hearing impaired on its BDSM content.

The seminal site recently made two captioned titles available, “The Interrogation of Delirious Hunter” and “Vyxen Steel — BDSM Test Pilot,” and is working steadily to increase the number of captioned titles available in its library. 

“So much of what makes a BDSM scene erotic and intense is the dialogue between performers,” says Wasteland CEO Colin Rowntree. “We want all our Wasteland.com members to be able to enjoy the full experience of our content, so making captioning available only makes sense.”

Rowntree says “The Interrogation of Delirious Hunter” and “Vyxen Steel — BDSM Test Pilot” are two of Wasteland’s most popular and dialogue-intensive recent releases, which prompted him to make these among the first captioned titles available.

“The manual workflow to add captioning to plot-heavy titles like ‘The Interrogation’ and ‘BDSM Test Pilot’ is pretty intense,” Rowntree adds. “We feel very strongly about making our films accessible though, so it’s worth the effort!” 

Wasteland is also in the process of adding audio versions of all their fiction and how-to articles, specifically for the vision impaired.

Cutting-edge since the 1990s, Wasteland is committed first and foremost to member experiences via safe, sane, ethical, and authentic BDSM content. Closed captioning content to better meet members’ needs is a natural extension of this wider commitment.
