"You should be so lucky I gave you the time," or, "You're deaf, so you shouldn't have unrealistic expectations." I also can't really do hookups at parties because I have to recharge the batteries in my cochlear implants and I never want to wake up completely deaf the next day in an unfamiliar setting. I can hear very well through my cochlear implants, but prior to my implants, most of my communication was through text or Facebook messages.

Woman B: My current partner and I tend to speak or sign beforehand about what we like/don't like.

In this week's Sex Talk Realness, spoke with three women who are deaf to find out what it's really like to date as someone who is differently abled. Now, I have started to refer to myself as deaf because I no longer think it's such a bad thing.

Woman A: In the past, I liked "hearing impaired" or "hard of hearing." I didn't like to refer to myself as being deaf because to me, being deaf meant I had absolutely no hearing.

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 A: I had my first boyfriend at 14, but not a "real" one until I was 21. Woman C: I didn't have an official date until my freshman year of high school.

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'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.

Woman C: I was born with hearing, but I gradually lost it over time.

Woman B: I've been deaf since I was about 2 years old.

If I take them off, I can't hear, which makes it nearly impossible to communicate.

I don't think my hearing impairment gives me any added benefits. Woman B: The challenges come about when you meet someone with an unwillingness to sign or be a part of the conversation.

If it's in the act, I'll usually just say "nope." There's really no need to articulate why it isn't working right in the moment, since it kills the mood.
