Dating a girl with hearing aids
A recent thread on Reddit featured a 20-year-old deaf woman who said she really wanted to have sex, but she was scared to. I was legally deaf, but I had a tiny bit of hearing.She said she worried about how she would sound to the people she had sex with, especially since she'd read a lot of comments online that mocked deaf people having sex. Referring to myself as deaf made me feel like all hope for me ever being able to hear was lost.There's never really a point when I asked myself, "Will my lack of hearing impact this experience?
The best part is I don't have to listen to anyone's weird sex noises. It has some challenges, but for the most part it's pretty much the same.
Woman C: I was so nervous I wouldn't be able to hear the guys I went out with and they'd think I was ditzy, but most of the guys I went on dates with didn't seem to mind repeating themselves. The only difference I could think of would be a deaf person would have less awareness about noise level, but it does depend on your partner. Woman A: The benefits were that they could help me to order food in restaurants and communicate with people.
When I began having sex as a teenager, I was really nervous that they'd accidentally see my cochlear implants and be weirded out. They might say I took advantage of her because of her disability." I've never had a guy say those things to me, but that was my biggest worry. If they know they're noisy, they'll just restrain it as much as possible. The drawbacks were that they didn't understand what it is like to not be able to hear.
Woman C: Whether I have cochlear implants on or not, I just tell them.
Sometimes if I'm not wearing them, my husband will use Siri Voice to tell me something if there's an emergency.
