An able-bodied woman has hit back at trolls who don't think she can be satisfied by her disabled husband.
Shane and Hannah Burcaw got together after she watched him in a documentary and reached out. Now they're married and opening up about their relationship.
Taking part in the StyleLikeU series - which is part of DIPSEA - Shane and Hannah opened up about their sex life.
The episode, called Laughing At Your Ableist BS, Hannah said: "Often people will assume that I’m Shane’s sister or mom.
“We definitely get a lot of comments from straight men thinking that it’s not fair that I’m with Shane and that I should be with them.
“People say that I couldn’t possibly be satisfied, we get that every day.”
Shane, who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), then added: "They perceive that I can’t have sex in their very limited, missionary man f***s woman. They think that is the be all and end all of sex.
“Little do they know… Our intimacy benefits from my disability and our intimacy is not just me enjoying it.
“It doesn’t look like what you see in the movies but I can totally do it."
He went on to say: "I am more often that not, the initiator.
“A non-disabled man might come up to Hannah and start rubbing her shoulders and I just say ‘hey, do you wanna go have sex?’ and I know that that probably shakes people as like ‘oh that must be not romantic’ but take our word for it.
“After I ask that, we are romantic.
“When we are in bed together I can ask her ‘will you roll me towards you’ or ‘can you move my arm so I can reach your neck or cheek.’"
Going into more detail, Hannah said: "In general Shane uses his voice in ways that other people might just physically do something.”
The couple are so comfortable and in tune with one another that Hannah believes she 'knows his body and preferences' just as well as knowing her own.
The pair have also previously spoken about how things 'down there' work, and look just as they should.
Shane said: "My head is not proportional to the size of my body... and one other part of me is not quite proportional. I'll let you assume what it is. It's not my toes."
