Hi there, I was reccomend to look through your blog by someone after having a conversation about me wishing for pretty much the exact opposite of what you’ve had done. Judging by your pictures I would probably need my scrotum reduced in size to fit a full set of vulva. I’m guessing you would have some resources on the subject? All I’ve been able to find is “Some providers have recently begun offering this procedure.” Without anywhere else to go from there.
Hey, Anon. I seriously do apologize for making you wait since February for such a lackluster answer: I honestly have no idea.
Believe me, it wasn’t for lack of trying. Night after night since I got your comment, I stared at the blank answer screen before me, wondering how I might find out this info myself. I did something I’ve never done before, not in all the years I’ve been running this blog, whether on Tumblr or here on its own site:
I Googled “phalloplasty info site.”
And… I have no words.
Other than THERE’S SO MANY NOW!!!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to be That Guy and be all “Oh, I did it before it was cool” about any of this, but. Please understand. When I set up ‘chinchilla-meat’ over on Tumblr in 2015, there was nothing in the landscape of the Internet about getting a phalloplasty with no vaginectomy. Nada. ZERO.
Now, I’m not only one of several sites for this particular hookup, there’s one person who’s done entire Reddit Ask Me Anything threads about the procedure! Who has FAQs set up on their site and everything! Why didn’t I ever think of that?! That’s GENIUS!
There’s a FACEBOOK GROUP for folks who’ve either had, or want, a phalloplasty with no vaginectomy! There’s thousands of us out there, now!
Some people are having the same procedure done that I had– y’know, the one that had me carrying around my pee in a bag for years?– with no complications.
The technology is improving, more surgeons are offering the procedure– there is no way I can keep on top of it all, balancing going back to college at age 40 to finish my mortician degree vs. keeping up with each new surgery innovation.
All I can say is, there was no data on how my surgery was going to turn out. I was apparently the first to try it. And that was only five years ago.
I say this with no sarcasm whatsoever, pure sincerity here: I CANNOT WAIT to see how obsolete my information is going to seem, five years from now.
I don’t know when I’ll update this blog next, to be honest. I’ll definitely keep it up, and if there are more questions folks have, I’ll be sure to answer them. But from here on out, there are enough voices speaking up about this procedure that I don’t know if folks need to hear mine anymore. My knowledge has barely changed since 2015.
So I’ll say it again, Anon: I’m sorry I don’t have an answer for you. You are speaking to the Wright Brothers, while there are spaceships launching to the stars.
I do hope you won’t have long to wait.
But, yes. My goal in running this info site was to raise awareness that this procedure existed, and I can see now, that very thing has happened. I’m excited beyond words to see where things go from here.
Heart hands, everybody. Thanks for letting me share, all this time. ❤
