May I ask a question about the after effects of gender reassignment surgery? Post surgery, male to female, is it possible for a person to have an orgasm?

Obviously a question of this nature is best directed to a surgeon who specializes in the art and skill of gender reassignment surgery (GRS). However, on an anecdotal note, I have had several clients who have now pursued GRS and the reports I have received from them are mixed. I have had some clients report improved orgasms, with even greater sensitity and intesity of orgasm, while I have heard others report some, or all, loss of sensation. There are several variables that affect this, including scar tissue, and nerve damage and placement. Most of the people with whom I have worked, however, are so uncomfortable with their gender that the possibility of not having future orgasms is worth the risk so that they can live the life more congruently, more true to their true gender.

There are orgasms and there are orgasms -- I'm a "versatile" gay male (no surgery). I often 'get off' while bottoming - it doesnt involve my penile stimulation. True, most of my orgasms involve penile stimulation but I suppose if I didnt have "it", I'd still get off while being pleasured with other parts of my nervous system.

I suspect there are immense psychological factors involved in post-op surgery and orgasms which are over-riding the nervous system. Physiologically, a DNA-male doesnt need a dick to get off!
