Default Weird question.. don't judge plx

Hey y'all!

I've been trying to figure something out, thought maybe someone here can help! My grandfather had a stroke 2 years ago, he was the kinda guy that got me a car on my 18th birthday, always there 4 me. Now he's in a nursing home, total paralysis on half of his body. Life turned to ****, and in finding something to do he's been very awkward about asking me for help, but did so anyway: he wanted to watch porn. He was pretty much a Don Juan as a adult, not so much now ofc. And yeah it's sad, but it's porn is pretty much all he enjoys now, the stroke made him super depressed.

So yeah, I fixed that for him, got some channels with a TV subscription, the nurses don't like it much though (he jokingly turns it on sometimes when they clean his *** haha) So, he did like that 4 a while, but it's unskippable, and not always to his tastes. He started asking 4 alternatives, so i got him a Ipad. Thing is: he's NOT handy! Like i tried to teach him browsing pornhub (awkward as that was..) but since he has 1 hand and bad hand-eye co÷rdination, he keeps opening adds or misclicking eternally until it crashes or freezes. Because of this, i'm looking for a way to make this more accessible to him.

Things i need to figure out:
1 - He can't hold the ipad bc of one functional hand. Is there some sort of sturdy standard for an ipad? He's ofc always in a elevated hospital ish bed so itl need to be able to bend.

2 - It will be impossible for him to learn to browse, so i thought that i'd prolly download some stuff to his taste (mostly gender fluid midget BDSM, lul jk). With that in regard: any tips for good software, maybe a program, where i can like create a registry in so he can easily press 'next vid' with a big button or something? As easy as possible.

3 - He sometimes even has trouble with turning the tablet on, i heard of ipads with special 'old people' software, does that exist?

4 - ANY other ideas next to a ipad are welcome as well! Maybe if u know something i could buy that's better and more accessible, i'll do anything for my grandfather

Thanks to anyone who might be able to help!

Default Re: Weird question.. don't judge plx

can he use a phone?

Get the dude a jailbroken firestick or any device that plays kodi on tv.

Put kodi kore remote app on phone.

Install porn video addons in kodi and I am assuming some kind of tarp or cleaning system, and he's good to go.

That bites about his health but at least his weiner still works, sometimes stroke takes that away

FWIW you are doing the right thing, I am sure he felt embarrassed to ask you just like you are embarrassed to ask us. Good looking out man. I miss my grandparents all the time.
