Sex chat for the deaf
By the time I was 18 months old, I was declared profoundly deaf, meaning I cannot hear anything.
Woman C: I was born with hearing, but I gradually lost it over time.
Sexually, there was always the issue of whether I should keep my hearing aids (and later, cochlear implants) on or not.
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 A: If I wear my cochlear implants, they usually fall off or the magnets get stuck on something.Sign language requires high quality video without dropped frames.That is why oo Voo is getting buzz in the deaf community. It works great if you are deaf or just like to see your friends clearly when you chat online. You've found a super-old post here on Buzz Feed, from an earlier era of the site.Woman A: Prior to getting my cochlear implants, it was hard for me to date the guy I was seeing at the time because I couldn't hear him well and he'd get frustrated.
I'd also have to try and find a well-lit place so I could see him and read his lips.
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.
