Actually, it is possible to do the I/O in application code, using
any "write some data down a socket" API of the application's choice.


In particular, the OP could use sendmsg() to move data between the
SSL layer and the network.

For a complete example, see network_biopair_interop() function in
Postfix 2.3 (recent Postfix releases no longer use this approach).
