When it comes to dating transgender women there are always miss understanding related to sexual roles, sexual preferences, and non the less understanding the meaning of some terms related to LGBT lingo, which are also commonly used in transsexual world.

These 3 terms, are all about one specific thing: sex change. It is related to her most intimate part, her genitalia. If she is a pre-op, this means she still has her male genitalia, or not having plans to remove them in case she is a non-op transsexual. We will be covering this topic pretty soon with more detailed explanations (if you are interest join our news letter to don’t miss it!) .
In case you like to have a versatile intimate relationship, you shall avoid transgender women who are pre-op or post-op. Note that some pre-op transgender not always end to undergo sex change surgery, which make them fall into the category of non-op transsexual, that wants to keep their natural genitalia.
There are also other things that you shall be aware, if wish to make sure you are going to date the right transgender women for you. T-girls can be also categorized in different type depending on : ethnicity, then geographical position, and what kind of life they living. Let’s see now what is this about.
Ladyboys, transsexual, transex, shemale, what’s the difference?
Have you noticed that on shemale porn website there are categories with these terms / names? Many associate these terms in most cases with what they see on internet on porn web sites thinking that these are all terms related to pornography and prostitution. That’s wrong! ( We will get into details about sex industry and transsexual next articles )
The reality is that, not all transsexual women are into sex business, there are so many transgender out there who live a respectable decent life out of sex work. This is the first thing you always have to bear in mind! Forget what you see on porn shemale websites! When you date a real trans woman out of red light districts, you will discover how different the reality is!
So, now you have to separate the contest from what is porn, and what is dating ( same goes for on line dating ). When you looking for a date with a transsexual woman, remember there are different meanings.
FIRST thing, we are speaking about transsexual male to female ( MTF ). Lets now make some example of different girls once again :
- Ladyboy is employed to refer at Asian transsexual
- Transex it is intended to referring for westerner transgender women
- Shemale shall be never used into dating context, because it’s strongly related to porn. Tough, could be tolerated in case you are looking for a one night stand with an escort prostitute which usually doesn’t mind about these details.
Now that you understood a little the meaning of these terms, you will also understand why on our website there are these 3 different categories.
Date an Asian transsexual, ladyboy
Transsexual in Asia are best known as ladyboys. This is also the international name they are called, which has been introduced for the first time in Thailand between 60-70 years to have better communication with westerner tourists.
When it comes at dating scene with an Asian ts, you can use the term ladyboy without so much worries, Asian t.girls are quite familiar with it, but bear in mind that some of them may still find it a bit offensive.
If you want to avoid any risk, simply employ transgender woman, or local names as Kathoey or Katoi in Thailand for example.
Date a westerner transsexual, transex
Transex or trans is the contraction of transsexual. These are terms commonly used to address westerner transsexual women from Europe or America. As you can notice, these terms are quite similar and can be exchanged without offending anyone.
So, when you are talking about transsexual women, if you want to point out your preference, or when you looking for a date with a westerner t-girl is correct to employ : Transex, instead if you like Asian tS : Ladyboy
Lets see the next and last!
Date a shemale hooker or tranny
The terms shemale and tranny comes both from America, and are mostly associated with USA shemale and Brazilian trannies. Have been widely used to categorize and advertise American transsexual porn movies by long time.
With the boom of porn industry in 80s, and still nowadays, the shemale term became popular even in Asia, Europe and rest of the world. In fact you may find t-grils who actually address oneself as shemale, but the majority of transsexual women, will tell you they dont’t really like to be called a such. It’s quite offensive for t-girls who are not sex worker.
Obviously because it is deeply associated with porn, prostitution, cam sex, which is quite vulgar and offensive. Then you have been warned now!
The freedom to be with who you like
With all being said, the term shemale somehow represent also and ideal of freedom. The liberty of being with a partner that could be a sex worker, or simply, that doesn’t want anything more than some fun and complicity with a partner that share the same desire.
