For many trans people who have not had gender-affirming bottom surgery, sex and masturbation can be a minefield. ‘Traditional’ ways of masturbating - especially with your hands - can trigger feelings of gender dysphoria, ranging from mild discomfort to utter revulsion.

There are endless studies that show sex makes us happier.
