A conjoined twin has explained how she still has s** despite her brother being there.

If you are unsure what conjoined twins are, it is when two babies are born physically connected to each other.

According to Mayo Clinic, this happens when ‘an early embryo only partially separates to form two individuals’ – leading to them remaining physically connected.

They are largely the chest, abdomen or pelvis, as well as possibly sharing one or more internal body organs.

Lori and George Schappell, 61, are the oldest living conjoined twins in the world and despite the fact that they are joined at the head, they have managed to live separate lives.

The twins, from Pennsylvania, share 30 per cent of their frontal lobe brain tissue and critical blood tissue.

While Lori, who is 5ft 1in, was born able-bodied, George is 4ft 4in and suffers from spina bifida – which has led to him not being able to walk.

Due to this, he sits on a wheelchair-type stool which Lori pushes so the two can move together.

They were also born as sisters with the names Lori and Dori – but Dori started identifying as a man in 2007 and is now known as George.

This made George and his sister Lori the first same-sex conjoined twins to identify as different genders.

The pair have opened up about how their condition impacts their dating life when speaking to The Sun.

Lori revealed that she lost her virginity at the age of 23 to her second boyfriend and has a desire to one day have kids and find a husband.

George is supportive of his sister going on dates – but he gives her privacy during her intimate moments with her partners.

Speaking to the outlet, Lori said: “When I went on dates, George would bring along books to read and, as we don’t face each other, he could ignore any kissing.

“I don’t see why being a conjoined twin should stop me having a love life and feeling like a woman.”

Lori was engaged back in 2006, but four months before the couple were set to get married her fiancé was sadly killed by a drunk driver.

She admitted that her fiancé’s death was ‘devastating’ and that she has only just started dating again.

This is not the first time that Lori has spoken about her ambition to have a family one day, as she mentioned this in the 1997 documentary interview for Our Life.

She said: “I would love to have myself a family – a husband and children of mine.”

George added: “Well, he [Lori’s future husband] would be like a brother-in-law to me that is it.

“They can do whatever they do and I’ll act like I’m not even there. I would block out.”

When they were born, a court ruled that their parents were not fit enough to look after the conjoined twins and they were placed in an institution.

Despite this, they learnt to look after themselves and received excellent grades at school.

Once they turned 21, the Schappell twins entered into a legal battle with the institution so Lori could attend secretarial college – which they would end up winning.

After college Lori worked in a hospital laundry room and while she was working, George would read or listen to music.

The pair also take part in their own activities as Lori is a champion ten-pin bowler while George performs as a country and western singer.
