The Different types of shemales
There are different types of shemales so a head this warning. It is important to have at least a basic understanding of the various types of shemales. A common mistake is to assume that all shemales are the same. This is a risky business and your misunderstanding could cause you to miss out on an opportunity to meet the girl of your dreams. We are quite a varied breed!
Some shemales are heterosexual male crossdressers. They simply aren’t interested in men, so you probably shouldn’t waste your time. Others are bisexual. Some shemales are looking for men, others are looking for women. There are also others who don’t identify as shemale at all, such as transsexuals who are preparing for complete sex changes. Some transgender women live full-time as females. There are trans women who also live part-time as females and switch back and forth between male and female. See general types of shemales and trans women below.
