Teen nymphette

With barely three weeks to go before the op, I am at last discerning an effect from cutting-off the feminising hormones.

No, it's not dark bristles sprouting again on my upper lip, nor hairy legs or muscular arms. Nor have I become moody and irritable, or inclined to pick fights. Nor do I scream or cry, or speak in a savage manner. Nor have I taken up an obsessive interest in power tools and their use.

No, it's quite unexpected. I've become physically aware of myself to an unprecedented extent. I mean the whole me, not just the bits that are shortly to be transformed. It's catching sight of my arms and legs, and my diminishing but strangely more feminine chest, and the waist, and those curving hips, and even my lips and the way my hair falls. The diet has made my limbs more slender than they were, and the look of them is not only fascinating, I actually feel that I'm going through an accelerating physical transformation. And - unheard of this - I feel positively randy at times. And I don't mean as a male on the rampage. I mean as a female wanting to be seduced and taken. And soon I will in reality have the right equipment for that.

This is terra incognita indeed. I must get a grip on myself. I don't feel like this all the time, and I'm in control, but a powerful volcano, that may erupt rather messily, has clearly emerged from lifelong dormancy. I can't say yet what kind of person may abet me in these fantasies, and I have positively no plans to instigate anything, but I'm treating these strange sensations as a wake-up call. I'm saying to myself: 'Watch out - you see your ugly face and think you'll be immune from all problems. But your body is not listening. It thinks it's a contender. You'll have to take care.'

Someone tell me it's just a temporary effect of unchecked testosterone, and that post-op, with a bruised, swollen donut down there, and a clitoris I can't use for months, I won't feel quite so much like a slightly improbable teen nymphomaniac!


  1. Have you been dipping into those Danger Man videos already!?

    Not sure that I would be too pleased to be having those thoughts myself, I love this calm bliss which I live now even though I was never driven like you seem to be now!

    What an interesting process we put ourselves through.

  2. Hi Lucy,
    Perhaps you need some very cold showers.
    Seriously, I hope everything goes well over the next few months.
    Look after yourself and all the best.

  3. An interesting phenomenon! Can't say that's what happened to me, but then I was and am randy most of the time. I think it's a positive thing. You are loving your own body! And even if you have no plans, don't be surprised if, once you are recovered, someone else thinks you're a contender.

  4. Can Lucy resist the urge to hang out in clubs in fishnets, mini skirts, and spike heels? Enquiring minds want to know!

    Only three weeks to go? Time flys!

  5. I'll aim to avoid both cold showers and sex slavery! Interesting that nobody else admits to pre-op libido resurgence. Perhaps I'm just unusual.

    I bet it's testosterone's last throw of the dice after all.


  6. Lucy, my libido never really desurged. I don't remember feeling hornier in the lead-up to surgery. :)

  7. Perhaps it's just as well it's not long till the op, . ‘Teen nymphette’? I was expecting to read more of ‘menopausal misery’.


This blog is public, and I expect comments from many sources and points of view. They will be welcome if sincere, well-expressed and add something worthwhile to the post. If not, they face removal.

Ideally I want to hear from bloggers, who, like myself, are knowable as real people and can be contacted. Anyone whose identity is questionable or impossible to verify may have their comments removed. Commercially-inspired comments will certainly be deleted - I do not allow free advertising.

Whoever you are, if you wish to make a private comment, rather than a public one, then do consider emailing me - see my Blogger Profile for the address.
