Woman born without vagina raises money so she can have sex

A woman and her family have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to give her a life-changing surgery that would allow her to lose her virginity.

Kaylee Moats, 23, from Gilbert, Arizona, suffers from Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser syndrome (MRKH) -- a disorder that occurs in females, characterized by the absence of a cervix, uterus or vaginal opening.

Moats was just 18 years old when she received the diagnosis. She was alarmed that she had never had a period at her age and made the shocking discovery after undergoing an MRI.

And up until four months ago, Moats lived in fear of people learning about her strange condition.

Now Moats says she's in a loving relationship with her boyfriend, Robbie Limmer, who she says doesn't care about the lack of sex in their relationship and has also been putting aside money to help fund Moats' surgery.

“He doesn’t really focus on the sexual side of our relationship because we can’t do anything since I don’t have a vaginal opening,” Moats, who is also a graphic designer, told the Daily Mail. “But I am looking forward to having a sexual relationship. I’m not sure if I want to wait until marriage, but I think having that option there is a lot more comforting.”

According to Moats, at first glance, her vagina looks like the typical vagina, except she has dimpled skin where the opening is supposed to be. 

Moats also doesn't menstruate. “It was hard being around people in high school and college when the girls would bring up their periods,” she told the outlet. “I would always wonder like where do you even put your tampon if I were to start my period since I couldn’t see where I would put it down there.”

She hopes to have a family in the future and produce children with DNA of her own. "If that doesn’t work . . . because sometimes surrogacy doesn’t work, then I hope to adopt," she told Bancroft TV, "And not have MRKH define me."

Moats said she needs $15,000 to cover the costs of the surgery, and she has raised nearly $17,000 in two months.
