What's under the hood

Recommended Posts

(Pun intended in the title.) 

I found my clitoris!  Okay, that may not sound like big news, but it is for me.  It's a part of the female anatomy that I was not very familiar with. 

 

I kind of knew roughly where it was supposed to be, and I could tell it was there, because it hurt when it got aroused.  Which happened a lot, because it was trapped under the clitoral hood.  The sensation was like having an erection while wearing a gaff that was too tight.

 

According to the written instructions from my surgeon, I was supposed to start "exploring" it at about week 8.  I had actually emailed my surgeon's office to ask if it there was a problem, because it had become so uncomfortable.  But they only have one nurse on duty during the shutdown, who answers emails once a week.  I got back a generic "keep exploring" response that was not particularly helpful. 

 

After googling up various poorly-drawn diagrams, and photographs that didn't correspond to what I could (or couldn't) see, I finally came across some "explore your clitoris" instructions for cis women.  Turns out you are supposed to pull the inner labia out and up.  And there it is!  Doing that has un-trapped it, and it is no longer uncomfortable.  Yay!  I intend to take it for a test drive soon. ;)

 

My reason for posting is that many of us are mostly asexual, and do not have a lot of experience with this particular part of the female anatomy.  I wish I had known this a month or more ago.

Interesting post.  Never thought that sort of exploration. 

 

Always assumed that if climax is is attainable, all is well & as it should be.

 

[Reminds me of a story I once heard about an American Tourist at a formal dinner in Scotland.  The host was properly dressed in a kilt, and during after-dinner conversation the tourist inquired of her host about what was worn underneath.  The host huffed up and stated, "Madam, I assure you that nothing is worn; everything is functioning as it should." 🤔]

Pain is a strong motivator.  I had to find out why it hurt.

I’m glad you were able to find it and now you can start enjoying it. Hopefully one day I will be able to do the same.

      Well that sounds like it went good I’m glad the management is going to correct the inappropriate talk. Hopefully you can get your employee file changed quickly. I’m sorry to hear that your wife is not supportive. I could only hope when I come out at work it goes that smooth I’m afraid not just because of the industry I’m in.

      First, it's not "transgendered", it's just transgender. No need for the -ed.   A transgender guy, is typically referred to as a trans man (FtM). Transfeminine may be a more accurate term as it's used by those who are AMAB (assigned male at birth), but may not fully identify as binary women, or just want to partially transition. I think the terms transfeminine/transmasculine are labels that are used more by Non-Binary trans people.

      i was just telling my wife i remember hearing Take It Easy for the first time on vacation with my mom and older brother on the only family vacation in North Carolina at some camp,ground in the north west corner, cant remember name but there was a dam nearby. i also aaw the movie Andromeda Strain at the campgrounds on a large white sheet. Wrote some of my first decent songs back then. ah memories...

      I was chatting with a friend this morning and she brought up this song. Great bass line, and the message rings true today, post transition...So here it is, their catalog (Eagles) is deep and wide....

      The whole question of how you identify is inherently confusing.  My brother highlighted it for me one time when he asked me what the difference was between feeling like a man and feeling like a woman.  I realized that the question was impossible to answer.   Initially, I thought it was unanswerable because I thought I had, until then, only been male.  But, since then, I realized that our gender identity doesn't change throughout our lives.  I have only ever been a woman.    At first, I was a woman pretending to be a man.  Now, I am a woman who knows she is a woman.  The only part that changed was the pretense.    What convinced me was trying it.  Acting like a man felt forced and unpleasant.  Acting like a woman was natural, easy and comfortable.  That is the difference.   If that describes you, then there is a good chance that you are transgender, though you might not be at one end or the other of the spectrum.  You might be somewhere in the middle.  Whatever feels unforced and natural is where you belong.    On the other hand, if what feels happy is being a guy, then you might not be trans.

      Great idea - I haven't jounaled since my first wife left and I'd hate to read those now - I was in hell and don't want to remember but I kept them just in case someday I might  want to what those days were like.   Since being drawn to Transpulse and found you tremendous women - you have changed my life in the matter of a month and I have a LOT to write about now that I have found kindred spirits.
