Paralysed Bride – Would You Hit it?

Disabled and sexy. The two words are rarely seen together, according to Rachelle Chapman, who decided to change that with a racy photo shoot.

Five years after being paralyzed from the chest down following an accident at her bachelorette party, the 29-year-old North Carolina wife and new mom known worldwide as the “paralyzed bride” now wants to be known as something else: a sexy, young woman.

In a series of professional boudoir photographs she released on her Facebook page to encourage people to see beyond her wheelchair, Chapman poses in nothing but lacy lingerie. She hopes the photos will help people see the romantic potential of people with disabilities.

“With these images, I’m saying, this is who I am, this is what I look like, this is what I feel like. I’m still sexy, I’m still a woman, I can still be intimate, but I’m still the exact same person when I get in my chair every morning,” she told “It was a good, positive image to show who I am and what I look like and give a different face to disability.”

It took a long time before Chapman felt confident enough to both take the photos and share them with the public.

On May 23, 2010, Chapman fell into a swimming pool after being playfully pushed by one of her bridesmaids. She fractured the C6 vertebra in her neck.

“After an injury like this, you wonder how can you be sexy and intimate again, and I think after five years, I’ve figured it out,” she said. “I’m happy as I can be, and I want to show other women, not only in my exact situation but also anyone who thinks there’s something ‘wrong’ with them, that’s not who they are. I don’t like the disability that I have, at all, but my disability is not who I am.”
