Page 6: “Four months before I’d started college, I’d had GRS (gender reassignment surgery) in which my penis had been turned surgically into a vagina.”

Page 187: “A couple of weeks earlier Arin and I had tried having intercourse- as in penis-invagina sex- which had been a little weird, since in our case the penis was on the female and the vagina belonged to a boy.”

Page 217: “Todd rolled on top of me, putting his hands all over my body. It felt so good. He started to take off my clothes, and I could feel myself getting really turned on. It was as if nothing could stop this. He took off my pants, and I though, Are we actually doing this? Am I ready? Yes. We started having sex, and it was the sex I’d been waiting years to be able to have, the sex I fantasized about for so long and that for son long had seemed an impossible wish. It was finally actually happening, and it felt amazing.”
