A 43-year-old Australian woman who hired a male escort to help her lose her v*rg*n*ty claims that she is now ready to use dating apps to find a long-term partner.

Melanie Hawkes has transverse myelitis, which is an inflammation of the spinal cord. She has been in a wheelchair ever since she was a child.

After being convinced that s*x would be off the card for her for most of her life. During the coronavirus outbreak, she went into isolation and promised herself that she would lose her v*rg*n*ty and get over her anxiety of s*x as a disabled person.

Hawkes looked online for a male escort in January 2023 so that she could keep her promise. She eventually found a man named Chayse.

I knew I was out of my depth with sexual knowledge and I felt completely overwhelmed with the expert that was standing in front of me,

she told the BBC.

It was the first time I’d been naked in front of a man outside of a hospital.

She also said that Chayse made her feel better and that “two hours later, they were best friends.”

Hawkes and Chayse have met up with her more than once since she lost her v*rg*n*ty to help her try out s*x and figure out what she likes and doesn’t. She learned that her legs can be “unpredictable” when she’s in a certain mood.

They needed to be fastened to the bed beforehand, and then there’s no worry,

she explained.

Now that the video editor is more sure of herself, she has decided to try out dating apps in the hopes of meeting a long-term partner.

I never thought I would go on dating apps and talk to men online, and now I’m doing it pretty much daily,

she said.

I’m [now] looking for a Chayse replacement. Somebody who loves me and loves what I like and does everything for free!
