Abigail and brittany hensel dating
The promise of learning about the twins’ love/sex lives was what initially motivated me to watch their TLC series. If a partner touches one genital does the other feel it? I stopped watching “Abby & Brittany” after a few episodes when it became clear that anything having to do with sex wasn’t going to be addressed and that the most titillating bits I would see would involve Abby and Brittany riding Segways and eating pizza.
My questions were endless: If the twins have sex with a guy, is it considered a threesome? (No mention of what happened when they article, author Alice Dreger, a professor at Northwestern University and expert on conjoined twins, points out that what’s more interesting than the actual sex lives of conjoined twins is our obsession with their sex lives.
“Although there are no real studies of the sex lives of conjoined twins, we can safely assume that conjoined twins want — and occasionally feel conflicted about wanting — sex, as we all do.
But not as conflicted as we singletons seem to feel about them having sex.” You mean, I wasn’t the only one who was being driven mad trying to figure this stuff out? In the end, Dreger does provide an answer that satisfies me: “Based on what we know about the significant variability of one conjoined twin to feel a body part (e.g., an arm) that putatively ‘belongs’ to the other twin, it’s hard to guess how any conjoinment will turn out in practice.
As one of their friends points out on the show, they are stared at and commented upon, constantly.
Roughly 40 percent of all conjoined twins are thoracopagus.
