I have a friend thats a hermaphrodite. He has both parts. He has a complete vagina, and small penis and testicles. But has lived his life as a man. im trying to find ways for him to start dating more. Im lesbian, so i take him to the gay clubs and such all the time. But are there any dating sites for inter sex people? ive looked and looked but cant find anything. Can anyone help? He'd like to find someone who shares this gender identity struggle, and i know it would be so good for him.
Hi there. Thank you for posting your interesting question on Ehealthforum. Your friend would appear to have what today is termed Inter-sexuality or Ambiguous Genitalia. This is an exceedingly rare and mostly congenitally determined condition. The most common cause of this rare condition is Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. There are other too of course including Turners Syndrome.
To try and answer your question though. Your friend will have been seen by specialists in this area or medicine. Indeed he probably still attends such specialists. He will have had chromosome analysis and will know the exact name of his particular anomaly.You are not going to find dating sites as such. What I suggest is you search for a support group in your country for this particular chromosomal anomaly and that you take it from there. I hope that is of some help.
It's really not appropriate to provide links to sites of this nature on this forum, especially given their often explicit adult nature, but many BDSM and Transexual networking sites are very supportive of intersex people. It would likely be a good place for your friend to meet people who are more likely to be comfortable with their unique gender.
