Furthermore the phalloplasty penis is basically a “dead” piece of flesh between your legs. It has no sensational value whatsoever. [BLAH, BLAH, BULL SHIT - added by transman]
That’s not true. In some cases sensation can be lost, but in general the penis is sensitive like any other part of the body (to cold, heat, pain…)… It’s also possible to connect nerves from the clitoris to the tissue so that the penis has the same kind of sensitivity everywhere
Yes, there are phalloplasty procedures that offer tactile sensation in the penis, and there are also phalloplasty procedures that offer both tactile and erotic sensation in the penis. There are several types of phalloplasty!
The dissemination of false information about bottom surgery, and phalloplasty in particular, MUST STOP!! If you don’t want bottom surgery, fine, but for fuck’s sake don’t spread false information in some ridiculous effort to validate your decision. (Gawd, is this as big a problem in MTF circles as it is with trans guys?!) Unless you know what you’re talking about, STFU and LISTEN.
I have emailed the author of the (now defunct) FTM Newsletter blog politely and have asked that they remove or edit this problematic post. I encourage you to do the same: FTM@fnbconnect.co.za
Oh, and why exactly did Big Brother Transmen share this post in the first place? It’s a disservice to your Little Bros.
