More About Shemale

Shemales often turn to surgery or hormonal treatments to enhance their bodies to ensure that they look as feminine as possible. Unlike transwomen, shemales maintain their male genitalia. By this token, shemales are often considered as multisexual. They can engage in romantic or sexual relationships with heterosexuals, gays, lesbians, or transvestites.

Shemales are also extremely present in pornography. Indeed, it is also considered as a fetish for both heterosexual and homosexual males. However, this term can be considered as derogatory for most transgendered women.
