Re: How does STD testing work?

I'm going to link you two different articles, and let me know if you still have more questions! For Austria, I'm not familiar with any specific places to go - do you know of any clinics that do it? Most doctor's offices do too, if you're okay with your primary care doctor doing it. But you might alr...

Re: Moving & friends

Hi Hel, I'm sorry to hear you're feeling upset about leaving your friends, I get it! It's hard to move and leave friends behind. The good thing about 2021 is the many ways in which we can stay in touch--I know it's not the same and will require extra effort, but it is doable! You can use WhatsApp or...

Re: Bottom Dysphoria Weirdness

Yep, I do recommend you bring it up, this is something that is normal but does need to be unpacked and worked through with a professional. I'm glad you are seeing someone new; talking about these topics in therapy is important as long as you feel safe in that environment.

I just want to say I'm so sorry you went through that and like Elise said, that is not okay. I'm glad it was in the past and you're not in that situation right now, but that doesn't make it NOT a big deal. It is perfectly valid for you to still have unresolved feelings about that.

Re: Sore clit a couple of days after masturbation

Hi, welcome to the boards! It is normal for people to experience some discomfort after masturbating, especially if it's going away within a couple of days, but there are definitely some tips to at least reduce it because of course it's not ideal. First of all, the clit is very sensitive and more so ...

As a former college student who lived with my mom at 22, I relate to your struggle and echo everything said - finding even just 30 minutes a day (some days are really busy!) to yourself for pleasureable activities, even if that day it isn't masturbation and it's just watching music v...

Re: Where do I can masturbate?

Hi, welcome to the boards. Where you masturbate is more about your comfort in that space than anything else--if the space is private and safe, that's most important, the cleaning is something you can adapt to. For example, if you do it in your bed, you can grab a washcloth or other similar towel and...

Re: Penis Size

I'll echo Sam - you're still at an age where you can keep growing and changing and your body, genitals included, might look very different in a few years. I understand it can be frustrating to sit around and wait, but you're definitely not running out of time, everyone's timeline is different.

Hi BlueFlower823 welcome to the boards! From what you're describing, it sounds like there's a very low risk you could get pregnant that way. While technically semen could travel from the clit area to the vagina on its own, it would be more so if you're in a position where it could run down into it, ...

Best of luck with that, I think it'll be a great step. In the meantime I just wanted to reassure you again that feeling it or touching it won't make it stop working or become less effective. Let us know at any time if there's any other questions we can answer for you!

Re: Masturbating as a pre-op trans woman

You're not weird for that at all! How great orgasms are is subjective, also. For some people it's the best thing in the world, for others they're not a big deal at all, and everything in between. I'm glad you're on the way to experiencing it, though, and deciding for yourself! Wish you the best of l...

Re: When I try to finger myself I don’t feel stimulated

There's not really an alternative that's safe enough, but you can check out your local Planned Parenthood, other sexual health clinics or even a school nurse's office. Most of them give condoms out for free, so you don't have to worry about buying them. Same thing with lube!
