That sounds interesting, love the fact of self lubrication.  I wonder what depth can be achieved?
Wanting that, Jessica

... it's like running a car on ethanol when it's supposed to take gasoline... it'll work, but it's eventually gonna break down until you put it on the proper fuel.

Sounds cool

Sounds great but the article seems to imply that following the usual method of SRS, trans women have hair growing inside their vaginas.  I hadn't heard or read about that before.

  Yes Mary it can happen and can be quite devastating if it does. To lessen the possibility many opt to do permanent hair removal down south as insurance. Some doctors even require it be done.

PI and colon approaches have been used without hair problems. The issues started happening when the  scrotum was used in the vagina instead of using it only to construct the labia. Using the  scrotum helped solve the depth problem without visible graft scars but introduced the new one of hair in unwanted places. It's best to learn all you can about the doctors approach so you can properly prepare for the surgery.

I'm glad that this topic was posted, as I have found it enlightening apart from the new technique.  The linked article didn't explain much about the vaginal hair problem, so thanks to Laurie and Dena for shedding light on it.  It seems to me that a hairless scrotum might be a good idea even if it is just used for the labia.  (Those poor electrolysists.  Still, I suppose that they get used to that sort of thing.)

I doubt that the new technique will be available on the NHS for quite a while.  I don't mind as I doubt that I will ever have a lover, but I feel sorry for young trans women who might want the technique but not have access to it.

Uterus transplant produces live birth.

Interesting.  Perhaps trans women could benefit in the future.  The anti-rejection drugs mentioned by the article are worth thinking about, though.  I don't know about nowadays but in the past they reduced resistance to disease.   It is nice when children have mothers who live long and heathy lives.
