5 Ways to Love Yourself as a Trans Person

Trans folks need self love, and I'm not talking about masturbation. Here's a couple of helpful ways for us queers to indulge in positivity and self love. 

When your orgasm sneaks up on you

Sometimes, we need to be reminded that not everyone is cisgender. It's helpful to read trans-centric work, make your own art or explore the creations of other tans people.

2. It\u2019s larger than you might think

Find an animal — preferrably domesticated — and give it some serious attention and a good belly rub. If you don't have a pet, someone you know will surely let you snuggle with theirs. That positive interaction will give you life. 

3. When you see a hickey on his neck

Organize a dinner party or a queer brunch. Start a trans book club or host a scary movie night. Creating bonds that don't depend on alcohol, drugs or your phone is a good thing. 

7. Prostate orgasms are full-body orgasms

While it may be cliché, you should look in the mirror and say to yourself, "Damn, I am sexy!" at least once a day. And, share your trans hotness with the world (or your friends and family) on Instagram.
