Having sex with a one legged woman.....

I was wondering how does one have comfortable sex when one of the partners only has one leg. I was thinking about Paul McCartney and his peg legged second wife, and wondered how that worked.

Wouldn't the man be off balance in the missionary position? The legs of the woman keep the man in balance. I guess if the woman has one leg, the man can do it somewhat sideways because there isn't a limb that is in the way.

The "stump" would be a turnoff, not that I would turn away a beautiful woman. But the knowing after a date that she has one leg would be something to overcome. Maybe, maybe not.

Could a one legged woman do it doggy style? Or would she tip over? If she is in top, then she would have to work her one remaining leg twice as hard making that position more painful than pleasurable.

The legs seem to be a very important part of the sex act, outside the sexual organs themselves. How do one legged people counteract this?

You're assuming, of course, that a respectable one-legged woman would have sex with you at all.

I suppose she could leave her prosthesis on; or have a special one made.

It seems like you used to hear a lot about amputee porn in the context of "weird stuff you can find on this newfangled internet thing." Haven't heard much about it lately, but perhaps the answer to your questions is still a (safe-search disabled) search away!

Captain Midnight --why would you be thinking about that one-legged pirate & the poor, deluded old man she took to the cleaners?

Back in the 70s or 80s there used to be letters to Penthouse about having sex with one-legged women. Apparently it was a turn-on to a lot of guys (probably because they were imagining greater access). There was undoubtedly a high fantasy content to submissions to the Penthouse letters section, but some of these were probably for real. If memory serves, there used to be ads in the back of the magazine for contact lists or videos or something with one-legged women, which showed up after the letters started appearing.

I think you can have sex in the missionary position without using the woman's legs to keep you in place.


And now that you've brought up the subject (which I'd never have thought about independently) it would actually be a boon for my favorite position, which is both of us on our side, facing eachother (less physically draining than staying in the pushups position), and her knees up, top leg wrapped around my lower back and me lying over her lower leg. If there were no lower leg, we'd both probably be even more comfortable.

First of all, "one legged woman" might actually be "one and half legged woman" or some variant, since amputations can occur below the knee, above the knee, or at the hip, all of which yields different results. If the amputation was below the knee it might not be that much different than sex with a woman with two full legs and kneeling positions shouldn't be a problem.

If the leg is missing all the way up to the hip, that's a little different. Maybe strategic use of pillows or couch cushions would come into play to help support one or both partners in a comfortable position. I don't know, I've never had sex with a one legged person of either gender.

However, positions where the remaining leg has to do extra work, such as woman on top, might not be as much of a problem as you think as her remaining leg might well be stronger than average in compensation for lacking the other one. She might also have better than average upper body strength if she spends significant time using crutches, so she might have little trouble supporting herself with one leg and the opposite side arm.

One legged women do have sex, so it's possible. I just never asked any of them for details.

A-good-friend-of-mine's wife had a hip replacement in her 30s. I used to joke with them that when they're were feeling 'in the mood' they'd have to adjust a dial and put her hip in 'Sex' mode.

There was an absolutely stunning woman in Portland who had no arms. She was so friggin good looking that you could look at her for 20 minutes without noticing anything other than how beautiful she was.

Since I look like Seth Rogan on a bad day, I was always afraid to to talk to her. "So you think just because I have no arms it somehow makes me 'in your league'".

Almost all the letters in Penthouse Letters and its many, many imitators were written by freelancers. That's why they were all so grammatical.

Long Jeanne Silver never found her stump a hindrance to sex. Quite the contrary, she did rather unusual things with it.

I came across an article on a no-legged woman (she was born with a deformed pelvis and vestigial legs, which were amputated shortly after birth) a while back. She's been pregnant and given birth twice. She was asked about sex and her response was something like, "It's just like having sex with any other woman, except there are no legs to get in the way."

I've had the experience with a woman who lost a leg due to a train accident when she was a child.

If anything, I felt a greater degree of intimacy by her sharing her "different" body with me.

I'll bet if you do an IP search, that is, search the Internet of Porn, you can find some videos illustrating exactly what you want to know. I've stopped doing that, cause once I ran across a guy with 2 penises {shudder}.

Yeah, they both worked...just imagine...

How would she know what it was like having sex with a two legged woman?
Actually, I think I saw a special on her and it was her husband who said that.

If he/she has 4 legs & 2 arms, your sexuality is off-centaur.

Want to see how one-legged sex is done? Have a look at many of the American films from the mid30s to the mid-60s under the Hays Code, when often during love scenes, three legs would be in bed, while a fourth leg would remain on the floor.

You stole my post. She had a stump about seven inches below one knee, and she used it for insertion. Her appendage was (based on external observation) both larger and firmer than the ones wielded by either Ron Jeremy or John Holmes. She had a wonderfully positive attitude about her supposed "handicap".

Why would you be off balance? If you're having sex with someone from behind, do you lose your balance and fall over? No, you don't.
