Trans sexual dating
We receive subtle and overt messages that we are, by default, unattractive and are consistently exposed to implications that trans men are inadequate sexual partners.
Your trans body is beautiful, whether or not it is fat, elderly, disabled, hairy, scarred, unreconstructed, readably trans, feminine, Black, or brown.
Since I identify as a transgender man, I’m going to center the rest of my thoughts on trans men here and hopefully open space for trans women to talk about their own gender-specific experiences.
From such a vantage point, I can honestly say: Most out trans boys, trans men, and trans masculine people I know receive inadequate, if not wholly non-existent, sex talks.
Or maybe his first “first time” has already come and gone — but his gender transition has prompted the need for an all-new sex talk that encompasses his maleness.
So, I’ve asked myself, what are some key things a trans man needs to know before diving into sex for the first time? And what social messages have kept other trans men from knowing them? TV, movies, books, and mainstream media tend to desexualize trans men and our bodies.
