(These children were essentially two people on top and one on the bottom.) In fact, this has been done in two cases.In one case, the "girl" is said to have reverted to being a boy, and in the other, the child-left-as-male died, leaving the parents who came to the hospital with two sons to go home with one daughter.When filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod set out to do an A&E Channel program about Lori and Reba Schappell, who are conjoined at the face, Weissbrod showed raw footage of the twins to New Yorkers on the street, without explanation, to gauge their reactions.Upon figuring out what she was looking at, one woman said only, "I mean ...but morally there was a most decided one." When, in the 1930s, Violet Hilton sought to get a marriage license while conjoined to her sister Daisy, she was repeatedly refused.
Typically, people who are close to conjoined twins come to adjust and see them as different but normal; they seem fairly untroubled by the idea of conjoined twins pursuing sex and romance. The best example of this would probably be the story of Chang and Eng Bunker, "the Siamese Twins," so called because they were from Siam (now Thailand).Yes, this was considered better than leaving the children alone.So, I suppose I should get to what the people really want to know: what do conjoined twins feel when they have sex?Not every school has sex education, and many parents feel uncomfortable talking with their children about the birds and the bees.For girls, who mature earlier than boys, the lack of information can be especially confusing.
