We couldn't be more thrilled for her!

By Anka Radakovich

Caitlyn Jenner has finally done it; she has cut off her manhood (AKA penis) to become the woman she always wanted to be, but couldn’t.

In her new upcoming book The Secrets of My Life, she says, “The surgery was a success and I feel liberated.”

The book will be released on April 25th. According to her publisher, “In The Secrets Of My Life, Caitlyn reflects on the inner conflict she experienced growing up in an era of rigidly defined gender identities, and the cruel irony of being hailed by an entire nation as the ultimate symbol of manhood.”

Formerly known as getting a “sex change,” the procedure is now most often called Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) — or sometimes also gender reassignment surgery, genital reconstruction surgery, gender confirmation surgery or sex realignment surgery.

People who have completed SRS are sometimes referred to as transsexed.

The term transsexed is not to be confused with the terms transgender or transsexual, which may also refer to people who have not undergone SRS, yet whose anatomical sex may not match their psychological sense of personal gender identity.

Confusing? If you think your sex life is confusing, try being transgender or transsexual.

And we applaud her courage.

So what actually goes on down there during sexual reassignment surgery?

For trans women, genital reconstruction usually involves the surgical construction of a vagina, by means of penile inversion, which is using some of the penile tissue to construct the new vag.

According to Brownstein and Crane Surgical Services:

“In penile inversion vaginoplasty, the testicles are removed (orchiectomy) and the scrotal skin is used to make labia majora (labiaplasty). The nerves to the the sensitive glans penis and the corresponding skin is preserved and used to make a clitoris. The skin of the penis and, in most cases, skin grafts from the scrotum are used to make a vaginal “vault.”

The urethra is shortened and placed in the female position. Sensitive urethral mucosa is placed in between the labia minora. Penile inversion vaginoplasty is typically a one stage procedure, however, occasionally secondary procedures are preferred to maximize the aesthetic appearance of the vulva.”

The big question everyone wants to know the answer to is can you have an orgasm afterward?

One woman who went through the operation told Vogue, “As a woman, it’s hard to reach that point,” which is a bit sad.

But Jenner says in her book that she is now truly happy and writes, “I was tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time ... I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life."

Plus, she got $4 million for the book, which is a good deal.

In the book, she recounts her Olympic triumph, her rise to fame, and relates how her sense of frustration and shame grew with the passing years and the lengths to which she had to go to conceal her true self. Caitlyn, in turn, uncovers the toll that these personal struggles had on her three marriages and, subsequently, her relationships with her children.

She also talks candidly about her life in the public eye as a member of the Kardashian clan, what led to her decision to become Caitlyn, and how she, her family, the transgender community, and the rest of the world has since embraced her new life.
