Sex dating and amputation
I was desperate for reassurance that I was attractive, and that I was still viewed as a whole woman.My body shape had drastically changed and it took a while to learn and to accept how I looked and felt.He loved me unconditionally and wasn’t “turned off” because I happened to be missing a foot. I didn’t feel attractive and any sense of sensuality seemed to have evaporated.
I have an incomplete paralyzis due to an accident some years ago and need a crutch... But as a sexually active amputee woman who is happily married with two children, I can speak frankly about my experiences.Because it is a sensitive and personal issue, I did not feel comfortable broaching the topic with amputee mentors.Finally, I felt secure enough to become intimate as an amputee. If the liner is on, it is because of the spontaneity of the act versus my desire to keep my limb concealed.Instinctively, my husband knew that the lights were going to be off, and that any touching below my knee was going to happen. I justified the decision through fears that my sensitive limb might get bumped. As my limb healed and my self-esteem recovered, I no longer needed to keep my leg covered. People are often curious about how an amputee has sex.
