Sex with Siamese Twins
In August, the show “Abby & Brittany” debuted on The Learning Channel and finally gave viewers a glimpse into the lives of conjoined twins, once referred to as Siamese twins. Abby and Brittany are 22-year-old women who have their own head, heart, spine, lungs, gallbladder, stomach and small intestine, but share nearly everything else.
Conjoined twins are very rare. occurring only once in every 200,000 live births. And the odds of them surviving for very long are slim. Most arrive stillborn, while roughly 35% live for only one day. Overall, the survival rate falls between 5-25%. And roughly 70% of all conjoined twins are female.
The most famous conjoined twins are, of course, Chang and Eng Bunker from Siam, hence the term Siamese twins. They married sisters Adelaide and Sallie Yates and produced 22 children, as well as up to 1,500 descendants, many of whom live in North Carolina.
This obviously begs the question that most of us likely wonder: How do conjoined twins have sex?
“Very carefully” would be a funny response and may indeed be the case, but there is a lot more to it than that.
When I think about conjoined twins having sex, a number of strange and even kinky scenarios come to mind. Finding a willing participant must be challenging since one twin having sex while the other sits idly by is bizarre by anyone’s standards. And if two participants are found, then questions of incest and group sex inevitably arise.
I could go on and on.
Oddly enough, though, most reports of sex with conjoined twins are rather tame. And since few ever speak of their sexual exploits, it can be difficult to determine answers to all our questions.
You also never see porn sites devoted to sex with conjoined twins, at least not in my own “research” (for lack of a better word).
What all of this means to me is this: What conjoined twins do in the bedroom is their own business. We can speculate about this and that, assume more deviant behaviors are in play or doubt that sex with conjoined twins can ever be anything but strange, but who are we to judge?
After all, these twins deserve some of the normalcy they were denied at birth. And having sex with people they love is a great way to equalize things.
Chang and Eng obviously enjoyed it!
