A Survey of 40 Transoriented Men on Having Serious Relationships with trans womenMar 5th, 2011 | By Admin | Category: Articles about TO Men, Relationship Advice to TO Men, Surveys / Studies
This survey was a pleasant surprise to me, particularly as it was conducted amongst a forum of transoriented men, most of whom are or have been regular visitors to Thailand’s ‘ladyboy’ bars, as they are referred to there. The forum tends to be a place to share war stories and links to pornography and has historically taken aim at naive newbies who fall in love on their first journey, warning them of the risks and low probability of achieving relationship success.
However, the mood has changed in recent times as more men have found themselves in relationships and as some tire of the prostitution scene. I think it bids well for the future of such relationships. Anyway, here are the results of the survey!
I AM in a ‘long term’ relationship: 9
I tried it before and I WOULD do it again: 7
EVENTUALLY I do want a serious relationship: 2
Maybe. If it happens, it happens: 8
I tried it before… so NEVER again: 1
Transwomen are for sexual purposes ONLY: 7
I’ve NEVER considered it. It’s a crazy notion: 2
I’ll stick with the GGs* for relationships: 4
*GGs = Genetic Girls, a term often used to refer to women assigned female at birth.
To summarize, nearly half are in or would like to be in a serious relationship with a transwoman and another 20% would consider it if they meet the right girl. About one third ruled it out as an option.
