Thanks to the technology, people who feel that they are in the wrong bodies now have the option to undergo sex change surgery. And that's great because it allows people to be who they want to be, whether they want to be a female or a male, regardless of sexual orientation. But is it really that easy?
Do you just fall asleep and suddenly your penis becomes a vagina through a painless operation? Well, here's a quick explanation of how a penis turns into a vagina and how the scrotum creates the clitoris.
Science and biology, let's have some knowledge sharing!
First of all, the surgeons remove the man's penis and testicles. Ouch. You still want to know more? You're on.
Surgeons begin to cut the scrotum (the skin of your testicles) and pull back the skin to remove the testicles.
Here, the skin of the penis gets cut around the head. Okay, so now you'll have a vagina, but what about the important clitoris that is essentially the sensitive part that allows women to become extremely aroused, just as much as when getting a really good oral service? Well, the head of the penis, called the glans, becomes the clitoris.
Using an extremely sharp dissecting process, the glans, the urethra with the corpora cavernosa, and the dorsal nerve bundle (which makes your penis sensitive) are precisely cut away. Next, your scrotum creates the vaginal lips, also known as the labia. The labia is also essential for one's sex lives since oral service wouldn't be the same for women if they didn't have vaginal lips.
Basically, a male-to-female sex change surgery involves taking out the penis and the testicles to have enough material for the creation of a vagina with a sensitive, working clitoris, and vaginal lips.
YES. After the operation, research has shown that most patients are actually happy with their new sex lives. A German study even noted that every patient was able to achieve orgasms. Thanks, Science!
