It's almost a porno film ,even porn star (Harry Reems) of Deep Throat fame is in it ,as they reinact how a trans woman has sex too soon and he leaves her in a small pool of blood after intercourse. They actually show a full sex change surgery blow by blow. Then show the results weeks after with her spread eagle! I must say they have certainly come along way in the surgery department! Now with the new technology the vagina is aesthetically pleasing and one would never know it was created and not genetic.
But this film is just for shock value although most of the information as to the mindset of transgender individuals is accurate. Not for the squeamish or closed minded.
Leslie, the main Trans woman in the film is fabulous. She's beautiful, determined and profound. She came basically from nothing in Puerto Rico, and explains in detail what it was like growing up with her feelings, and even about her contemplation of suicide. I had to admire the tenacity of the woman, because she accomplished what she set out to do.
Other parts of the film are quite gross and graphic. Stock footage of vaginas being constructed, the doctor examing Transgender vaginas, simulated sex scenes, and a whole lot more lol.
The one thing positive I can say about this film is that it may assist someone should they be struggling with this. They can see all the ups and downs in transitioning. It may be overdramatic at times and even camp, but I think their intentions were in the right place even though they exploited these women.
You know what they say...You can't be exploited unless YOU allow it. I mean no one is forcing any of those women to be on The Real Housewivess shows.
Just be warned...this film can be quite graphic at times. I do not recommend it for ANYONE under 18.
