I've been told that people often forget that I'm deaf and my cochlear implants are pretty hidden underneath my curly hair. Sometimes they'd get frustrated and lose their cool with me if I needed them to repeat something more than once.I was nervous that they'd see them and think, "Oh man, I'm about to be with a disabled person. I had a few people scream at me, which was very upsetting, especially since often times I could hear them but I couldn't understand anything they are saying. Woman B: Again, there's no difference in my sex life with a hearing man or d/Deaf man.The differences have come out of different personality types and levels of self-awareness.
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.They'd fall off or get bumped off a lot, so I'd usually take them off before, but then communication was a challenge because I couldn't hear.Woman B: Sexual challenges as a teen were the same as most young woman in terms of wondering what positions I should do and if something would hurt or not.I don't use Deaf with a capital D because those who use Deaf with a capital D are part of a specific community, with sign language as their primarily means of communication.I'm deaf with a lower case d because I can't hear without the use of cochlear implants, but I never learned sign language and don't have much of a desire to.
