When it comes to popular culture and human sexuality, few bodies are lower on the sexual totem pole than trans women. Up until recently, trans women were often poorly depicted and overtly sexualized by media: exploitative and problematic “she-male” porn; sitcoms and movies joking about discovering the woman a character was dating was “really” a man; Craigslist personal encounters demanding “passable” trans women, conflating trans people and cross-dressers; the list goes on and on.
Trans Women + Sex = Awesome is written in the hopes of combating all that cultural bullshit, at least a little bit. Specifically, the author hopes to address two major topics:
- Physical intimacy with trans women
- Physical intimacy as trans women, both solo and with partners
