Warning for this episode that we are talking at length about reproductive anatomy and genitals, particularly vaginoplasty as a gender-affirming surgery. This episode includes frank discussion of vaginoplasty as a procedure, as well as Tessa's personal experience.
The first in a two-part series on trans people and genitals, this episode focuses on vaginoplasty, with an explanation of embryonic sexual differentiation, a brief history of vaginoplasty in the 20th century as part of medical transition, and the primary method used up to the present day.
