I love him completely for who he is, I just worry if I might have trouble getting turned on when it comes to sex because unlike other gay men I've dated, his body isn't the first thing that attracted me to him.
If only I understood women as much as people may think I do! but we want someone who supports our transition, not someone who is embarrassed of it.8. Going through the wrong puberty would give anyone certain body hangups. It's good to be open and honest with one another about what triggers them.9. Most people know about the phalloplasty - where a skin graft is used to create a penis.
Our bodies change on testosterone treatment to become more masculine. I am really comfortable with myself as a guy, so I often joke about my transition with my girlfriend and friends. Retro hair needn't always mean rolls and finger waves.
It means you're seeing them for the man that they are.2. I've heard some girls say a trans man would be the perfect man because they can relate to women. Some people struggle with this one but the thing to remember is your sexual orientation is a totally separate thing from your gender. Sure, that makes a difference physically but it doesn't make them any less of a guy! but then again it's nerve-wracking with anyone for the first time! If we're open about being trans, there's no reason for you to hide it either. There are so many other aspects that are more important - our personalities, interests, sense of humour... I can't speak for everyone but I can tell you that being with a trans guy isn't all about walking on egg shells.12.

Someone could be in the process of waiting to get on testosterone, or have their own reasons not to be on it. It's understandable to feel nervous before your first time with a trans guy... I'm always camping it up and am not afraid to be feminine! being with a trans guy is really just like being with any guy.

This is from the perspectives of four trans-identified people who offer up their own experiences as personal advice.)Rudy is 25, Middle Eastern and identifies as a straight male. Going in for revision to fix nipples after I hit 1 year. Anyone else have a surgeon that left part of the nipples right above the incision line? You're a savvy queer who's been eyeing a hot trans guy at the monthly dance parties, or the regular cutie you see at all the fundraising events, but how you make the approach?Many people are unaware that the clitoris grows into a small penis on testosterone, and there is a surgery that works to enhance what you have naturally, called the metoidioplasty. He's also a transgender advocate and ambassador for All About Trans, and co-created the series of short documentary films 'My Trans Story' which is available to watch on 4OD.I just want to be the best boyfriend I can possibly be, while giving him the reassurance and confidence in his masculinity that he needs. I'd feel pretty bad if I wasn't, because I love him so much, and while I think that should be enough, what if it isn't?
