So I've been trying to get into pansexuality. I'm trying to break that societal barrier that's instilled in us as we grow up but it just seems so awkward. It's like trying to obtain an interest in something you've never liked or thought about. I don't have any bi- or pan- friends that could help me along. Most of them are strict hetero types and it would jus seem awkward as hell discussing it with them, but there are two questions that seem like they would get said hetero person thinking about it. 1) Let's say the person you loved for many years, the one you planned to live with the rest of your life, decides to get a gender change. Would you stay or leave? 2) Let's say we find some alien civilization that is similar to us. Would you have any sexual relations with them? Who would declare their sexes male or female? Would people just make up more labels and then the general populous follows suit?
Idk. I feel completely fine as a hetero. It's just that I've been trying to expand my open-mindedness as much as possible. From what I've witnessed, interests are subjective. I guess I'm just looking for others that think this way because there seems to be a lot of negative people out there. Reminds me of story "The Lottery."

pansexuals are unique in the sense that they feel they don't accurately meet the physical or psychological criteria of any particular sexual orientation... typically they are either physical or psychological androgyne's or both... they can have sexual relations with anyone, if there's an attraction but it's not unusual for a pansexual to remain celibate... i've known three during my lifetime, two were celibate and one was extremely promiscuous... "she" tended to prefer relationships with trans-sexual women but would mix it up with others from time to time...
i'm a physical and psychological androgyne myself, i've always been... i have a highly androgynous look, the soft bone features of my face make me look much more like a woman then a man and i've always been a blend of both sexes psychologically as far back as i can remember being tested as a child... i'm not pansexual though because i began identifying as a bisexual at 14... i gravitated toward women only in my late 20's but still consider myself bisexual because i still find myself attracted toward specific men...
to answer your first question, if my wife decided she wanted to become a trans man it would probably break my heart to some degree because i absolutely adore her for who she is and i love her hard body... typically, but not always a trans man or woman becomes body dysphoric, meaning they can begin to hate their natural body parts and may become psychologically repulsed if a lover handles their penis, vagina or breasts... the great majority of trans women have reassignment surgery where their penis is sliced in such a way and forced inwards to form a vagina... i know one transwoman personally who claimed to have a vaginal depth of seven inches... transmen almost always have their breasts removed... it's the psychological hangups transgenders have regarding their biological body parts probably bother me a bit but i would never leave her because i love her too deeply...
to answer your second... if an alien looked like this i'd not only do that shit hard, i'd tell them don't worry about me, i'll be fine as they board the ship to head home.... if she looked like this i'd probably have to place a burlap bag over her head... for the second part, their own biologic orientation has already determined this long before we ever showed up... for the third part, labels are sometimes necessary but i don't see any need for them in this case...
done a bit of experimentation myself. found i could enjoy quite a repertoire of sexuality. but i found its just plenty easier for me to get into doing the typical hetro relationship. as their are far less guys i am attracted to and as statistics will tell ya only about 1/10 are gay or bi or pan
if someone i been with for a long time got a sex change, umm the concept doesnt bother me but in all honesty i havent seen many if any transexuals that looked good for my sexual appetite
i appreciated the garden before, but i understood it now

Damn it, they really have to stop calling things LSD that aren't really LSD. That goes for dealers, police, and the media. Stop it, stop it, stop it. It makes the real LSD look bad.[/quote]
