And Caitlyn says “gender reassignment surgery” is not as bad as you think. I guarantee you every man reading this will have a different opinion.
From Daily Mail: Caitlyn Jenner spoke candidly about her sex life and gender reassignment surgery in an interview with friend and TV legend Larry King on Thursday. When King asked Jenner why she has elected to not speak about her surgery, which she underwent this past January, the former Olympian said it was out of ‘respect’ that she elected to stay quiet.
She later said of the procedure: ‘It’s not as bad as you think.’
Jenner was also asked to speak about her sexual orientation, and revealed that she still was not sure which sex she was attracted to at this time.
That is when King, 83, told Jenner that she still had some ‘pretty good sexual years’ left at the age of 67 before asking: ‘What are you doing later?’
This caused Caitlyn to light up, laughing and blushing as she said: ‘I just got hit on by Larry King!’
‘Who do you desire? Do you desire women or men?’ asked King. ‘I don’t know. I don’t really know. I don’t even go there Larry,’ said Jenner.
King then asked Jenner how old she was, before stating she had ‘good sexual years’ ahead of her, which made Jenner smile. ‘Do you want to talk about that? Do I have hope?’ asked Jenner, who paused for a few seconds and looked at King before bursting out in laughter. ‘Yeah,’ said King, before asking Jenner about her plans later that day.
Jenner only recently announced that she had undergone reassignment surgery, sharing the news in her recently released memoir. She has been reluctant to speak in depth about what she underwent in her recent wave of interviews, but did open up a bit while speaking with King. ‘Those things are very personal, wouldn’t you agree,’ said Jenner.
‘Just because your trans doesn’t mean you have to answer every question. I understand that people are fascinated by that stuff.’
King then interjected to explain that the he was only interested in the subject for one reason, asking: ‘What is the surgery like, what is it like to go through with it.’
King also made a point of noting that he had previously asked other transgender individuals the same question and that many told him: ‘It’s not as bad as you think.’
Jenner echoed that sentiment, adding that despite that fact approximately 68 percent of transgender women do not get reassignment surgery to her knowledge. It is unclear where Jenner got that number or its accuracy.
When asked about why less than half of transgender women elect to undergo the surgery, Jenner said because it was ‘expensive.’
King then pointed out that the expense was not an issue for Jenner, who appeared to get a bit riled up by that statement. ‘Well no, fortunately I work,’ said Jenner. ‘And I’m not going to apologize, I worked all my life.’
Jenner later told King however that ‘what’s between your legs doesn’t define who you are.’
She also said that ‘a lot’ of transgender women ‘like their own parts.’
