  • CatalystCon East: Myths & Realities of Consensual Nonmonogamy

    This past weekend, I went to CatalystCon East, a conference for sex educators, writers, activists etc. in Arlington, Virginia.

Survey data collected before #surgery and 1 year later revealed that psychological symptoms, #bodyimage, and #selfesteem did not change pre- to post-surgery. Despite this, after surgery participants were more sexually active (both by themselves and with a partner) and used their genitals more frequently during sex compared with before surgery. Furthermore, participants generally reported high satisfaction with their penile function (although they did report problems with urination). The takeaway? #Transgender men who choose to undergo bottom surgery do indeed benefit psychosexually.
