Research Shows Many Trans Folks’ Sexual Attractions Change After Transition

According to research, it isn’t uncommon for sexual attraction or orientation to change after transitioning from one gender to another.

Most of these changes include shifts from exclusive attraction to one gender pre-transition toward some level of bisexuality post-transition…But some people claim almost complete reversal of their sexual orientation. For example, 13% of the trans women in the 2005 study switched from exclusive or primary attraction to women to exclusive or primary attraction to men (there were no such drastic changes among those who were initially attracted to men). Of the trans men in the 2013 study who were initially attracted to either men or women, 6-7% experienced a complete reversal.

It’s not clear why these changes occur, but there could definitely be more than one correct answer. Sexual attraction and orientation is not necessarily something that is fixed at birth. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that it is fluid.

    For many couples, pregnancy puts a stop to sex, often driven by the stigma around pregnancy sex. A recent study found that a couple’s attitude toward pregnancy sex affected their overall sexual satisfaction, such that couples with positive attitudes were more satisfied. The study also found that negative attitudes often stem from myths or other cultural beliefs that have no basis in science. As I urged in my recent newsletter, if you’re pregnant give yourself the right to be a sexual being and if your partner is pregnant work on overcoming the harmful beliefs and make your partner feel desired
