Two deaf people get married.
Two deaf people get married. During the first week of marriage, they find that they are unable to communicate in the bedroom with the lights out, since they can’t see each other signing.
After several nights of fumbling around and many misunderstandings, the wife figures out a solution.
“Honey, why don’t we agree on some simple signals? For instance, at night, if you want to have sex with me, reach over and squeeze my left breast one time. If you don’t want to have sex, reach over and squeeze my right breast two times.”
“Great idea!” the husband signs to her.
Then he thinks about how to make up a signal for her. The “A-ha!” look flashes over his face.
“And if you want to have sex with me,” he replies, “reach over and pull on my organ one time. If you don’t want to have sex, pull on my organ two hundred and fifty times.”
