It’s The Little Things…

Among the challenges of genital reassignment surgery is re-learning how to go to the toilet. At home I installed a Western-style bidet* (based on advice I’d gotten), but here at the hotel, there’s a simple spray nozzle. The trick is to wash away the fecal matter without spraying everywhere else. 😬

Then there’s the issue of wiping oneself. After a lifetime of wiping back to front, I need to re-learn to wipe front to back — so that I don’t get… ahem… foreign matter…. into the new parts. Definitely a bit harder in that direction.

*Definitely worth it, and I’m told it works even better without the dangly bits getting in the way.
