Thailand considers a cross-dressing waiting period,before sex change surgery.
By Jane Fugal, AP

Thailand looks to limit sex change surgery

BANGKOK — Thailand has issued rules making sex change surgery more difficult — including a requirement that potential candidates cross-dress for a year — over fears that some patients are rushing into the operation, a medical association said Thursday.

Transsexuals and transgendered men are a common sight in Thailand, appearing on soap operas and working at all levels of Bangkok society, from department store cosmetics counters and popular restaurants to corporate offices and red-light districts. A national transgendered beauty pageant draws thousands to the beach side town of Pattaya every year.

But over the past two years, a rash of castrations, especially among young men, has alarmed the medical establishment and prompted the new rules.

Dr. Sampandh Komrit of the Medical Council of Thailand said the new rules went into effect Wednesday and require a person to wait a year after deciding on the surgery. The applicants must be over 18 and are required to dress in women’s clothing for the year before surgery. It also requires a mental evaluation before the surgery and continued follow-up visits with a psychiatrist after getting the sex change.

“This is a very important decision in their life,” Sampandh said. “After the operation, there is no way to fix it.”

Last year, Thailand’s Health Ministry ordered hospitals and medical clinics to temporarily stop performing non-medical castrations. The ministry said that the procedure needed stricter monitoring.

Sampandh said he understood the motivation for sex change surgery, adding that he has met many men who insist they would be happier being a woman. But he said the new regulations give them the opportunity to think through their decision.

“This is not a small thing, not like going shopping. Especially the teenagers, think carefully. Don’t do it because your friend did it,” Sampandh said.

Patients with a long history as cross-dressers would be exempt from the one-year waiting period, he said.

pretty good idea, especially of a decision of this magnitude....

a year is enough time to be sure that you really want the change...

Hi fellow panty lover,

I live in Minnesota where it's so cold I wear long underwear when I go outside.  Inside my apartment, I enjoy wearing full cut granny type panties.  They have more nylon and therefore more "skin-to-nylon" contact.

Greetings from nippleplayer88

Absolutely a good ruling, the waiting period is there to benefit the people choosing to undertake the procedure

i don't think i would want to get it all Wacked off,,, ,, I still like cumming,,, and i have heard that even if the doctor can reattach the nerves, at best you only have a couple of years of orgasams before your body starts rejecting the surgery,, ,,,,,, (just what i heard) i am not a Dr or a professional. but i wouldn't want to take my chances either.



PLUS,,,, I love Women too..

panty-wearing is much fun even without changing sex. Why bother?

One year wait doesn't seem unreasonable to me.  If you want it bad enough, then one year will go by quickly.

Better than just letting anyone change whenever they want. You guys should see the South Park episode about implants and reconstructions.
