For most cisgender straight people, the first time they have sex makes a relative degree of sense to them. They identify with the gender they were assigned, so sex feels mostly natural and comfortable. For transgender or genderqueer people, however, this comfort is often lacking in their first sexual experiences. Thankfully, having sex after they begin their transition can be a completely different experience. It's almost like losing your virginity for a second time.
Sex Reassignment Surgery is the final step in the process of assisting people who have experienced conflicts between their sexual perceptions and their physical characteristics since birth, which in medical terminology is Gender Dysphoria. The sex reassignment surgery will transform the sexual organ to conform to the desired inner state of mind in order for the person to lead a happier life with the new chosen gender. Therefore, in order to undergo Sex Reassignment Surgery which is considered the most important surgery, paving the way to a new way of life, it is necessary to prepare individuals by seeking pertinent information about the surgery before making a decision. This is especially important when selecting the right surgeon equipped with appropriate experience and expertise in Sex Reassignment Surgery who can then create a female sexual organ which looks beautiful and natural, with a deep vagina, proportionate to the physical condition, capable of better perceiving sexual sensations. This will help the patient who has undergone surgery connect her physical and mental state of mind, and be capable of leading a normal happy life. Characteristics of those who qualify for Sex Reassignment Surgery from male to female are as follows:. The patient must be at least 20 years of age.
Next Thursday, I will get a vagina. The procedure will last around six hours, and I will be in recovery for at least three months. Until the day I die, my body will regard the vagina as a wound; as a result, it will require regular, painful attention to maintain. This is what I want, but there is no guarantee it will make me happier. I like to say that being trans is the second-worst thing that ever happened to me.
