So I ask you people of tumblr, when a girl gets a sex change how do they sort out the downstairs department. I understand with a man they slice his member in half and shove it up inside. But with a girl what happens?
Do they yank our innerds out and graft it all together in some cool high tech way?
Do they simply build it from skin elsewhere, but if that is done how do they get it to function like a normal penis eg going erect.
Is there a way of receiving donor penis’ just like other organs. Like is there a form you can sign to have your penis passed on. What would be the legal requirements for this? Also if this is a thing why do you never see people going all mixed and matched. Yanno white person, black dick etc.
Or finally is it completely prosthetic, where they literally surgically attach a dildo to your whoha?
Please someone explain this to me! It has confused me for weeks now, I need answers.
Howdy, lemme jump on this grenade.
First off, it’s polite to refer to transexual people by their chosen gender. So you’re not asking about a ‘girl’ getting a sex change, you’re wondering about a guy. I am one such guy, so I feel qualified to answer this. If you Google “female-to-male genital surgery,” you’ll get much more comprehensive information than the ten cent tour I’m about to give ya.
Not all trans guys get genital surgery of any type. Personally, I got better uses for $15,000. I’m OK with what nature gave me, and I’ve got a vast collection of dildos, so I’m good.
If a trans man wants to go the surgical route, there are two basic options: phalloplasty and metoidioplasty. ‘Phalloplasty’ means ‘building a penis,’ ‘metoidioplasty’ means ‘becoming-more-like surgery.’ In a phalloplasty, the surgeon does indeed take skin and tissue from elsewhere on the body- often the forearm, sometimes the thigh or belly- attaches it to the groin, and shapes it into a penis over the course of three or four surgeries. Because this new dick doesn’t have the internal structure of a factory-installed model, there are a couple of different methods of getting it erect: the Nike Air and the Bendy Toy. Dudes can have a tiny pump installed in their brand new balls, or else a poseable surgical-silver wire implanted along the core of the new wang. This only sounds gross and silly until you consider how erections usually work.
Metoidioplasty uses what’s already there. Generally, the vagina is closed up, the urethra is extended to the tip of the clitoris, and the labia are reshaped into a ball sack. Some surgeons insert silicone balls in the new sack to make it look more scrotacular, and some just use the fat at hand in the labia. There is a short ligament that keeps the clit tucked up close to the pelvis, and some surgeries include cutting this ligament to let the wang swang low. Dudes who choose this surgery are never going to be hung like a horse, but neither are a lot of cis men, so, okay.
There’s no way to switch in a penis from an organ donor. The risk of your body rejecting a donor organ is too great to be worth it unless it’s a life-or-death situation, like with heart or kidney transplants. Because there are the other options I mentioned, nobody’s going to fool around with an insanely difficult, dangerous surgery with a wicked low chance of success.
I’ve never heard of a prosthetic penis being permanently attached. Most prostheses- arms, legs, noses- aren’t permanently attached, anyway. There are some extremely realistic packers/dildos that dudes can attach with surgical adhesive, and apparently you can then pass stark-fuckin-naked in a cruisy locker room, if that’s important to you.
So yeah. That’s the options for trans dudes, in a nutshell. I’m pretty shameless about answering whatever anyone wants to ask, so let me know if you have any other questions.
