Woman born with no legs has ‘wonderful sex life’ after defying bullies and finding love
Piyah Martell, from California, was born with a rare condition known as sacral agenesis.
She admits her congenital birth defect made it difficult to settle down.
But after a while in the dating game, the 27-year-old has finally met her perfect match.
Growing up with the defect was difficult, especially as some of her classmates taunted her for being different.
She added: “Going to high school was where a lot of bullying happened.
“Some of the difficulties in school was having to deal with people talking behind my back.
“They were rude, and called me names, saying, ‘You have no legs, you are an amputee.’
“I am just like, ‘Oh dear’, pushing all those mean people away.”
She said: “My disability affects me outside of my house because I have to use a skateboard to get around.
“I have my nice little shoes that I wear inside and out of the house so that I don’t hurt my hands.
“I always make sure either I have gloves, slippers or some type of things on my hands to keep myself safe.”
While Piyah says her condition can make dating difficult, it hasn’t held her back.
She remembered: “My first impression of him was – what am I getting myself into?
“But then he has this, like, charm. He had this charm that I was really attracted to.
“Just like every normal couple we fight, we argue, we bicker but we always end up together and we make it work.
“That’s the thing about relationships, we communicate.”
He confessed: “I thought she is a very beautiful girl. She is sweet. She was nice. And I don’t know, she is just wonderful.
“She just brightens up the day every day.”
The California-based man added that the pair enjoy a healthy sexy life.
He added: “Me and Piyah have a wonderful sex life. I see life as wonderful.”
