Quick Answer: Male Reproductive System

No, it is not currently possible for a trans man to have a male reproductive system.  We cannot produce sperm.  We cannot *ejaculate.  Our testicles (if we have them) are silicone.  At the moment the surgical options are something of a trade off between size and the ability to get hard without mechanised assistance, seminal vesicles, vas deferens, etc. aren’t even an afterthought.  Reproduction is still a fairly new consideration for trans people.  Until recently it was assumed that sterility was desired by everyone involved.  If you’re interested in having biological children I suggest finding a doctor who can help you go through your options.

*At least, we cannot ejaculate in the same way cis men can.  I know of a few guys who can in, uh, other ways.

Practical reasons for lower surgery

  1. Public bathrooms and showers would be a hell of a lot easier to deal with.
  2. No more worrying about what would happen if I was in a car accident or something.
  3. Wouldn’t always have to disclose to someone in case of medical emergency.
  4. Less worrying about potential health emergencies in general.
  5. Wouldn’t have to wonder about what’ll happen when I’m old and possibly need to go to a nursing home.

It’s not enough to change my mind (figure I should at least enjoy what I’m adding to my body), but things like this have been kind of nagging me all week.  Just finished a cross-country road trip that required going through the south and having a penis would’ve made that a hell of a lot less stressful.  Not too much more because I’m still…me, but enough that it would’ve been nice.  For all that penises are fun, there are also some decent non-sexual reasons to get one.
