Transgender Women Satisfied with Neoclitoris, Study Says
What's New in the VJPU?
Transgender women tend to be satisfied with their neoclitoris after male-to-female gender reassignment surgery (GRS), new research suggests.
In a study published online last month by the Journal of Sexual Medicine, 86% of trans women said they were satisfied with their GRS.
Creation of a neoclitoris is a standard part of male-to-female GRS. The new clitoris is usually formed from tissue from the glans penis.
The study involved 22 transgender women between the ages of 23 and 63. The average post-surgical follow-up period was 37 months.
The women answered questions about orgasms, pain, and satisfaction with GRS. Researchers also assessed the women's neo-clitoral tactile sensitivity by applying filaments to the skin.
Eighty-six percent of the women said they had been able to reach orgasm. The same percentage said they were pain-free with the rest reporting minimal pain.
Complications from surgery did not appear to affect clitoral sensation, the authors said.
