Y: My name is Yegi and I’m originally from Iran. I came here about 20 years ago. I’m 36. I identify as a trans person, as a transguy to be more specific. And I identify as queer.
SF: And what does sex mean to you? How would you define it?
Y: Sex? That’s actually pretty loaded. It can mean a lot of things, right? But, it depends on where you are on your life, I guess. It sometimes can just mean fun, but most of time for me personally, it’s just a connection. It’s a really deep connection.
SF: And how did you first learn about sex? And how did you feel in that first moment, when you first learned about it?
Y: [laughs] I was actually I think 12 or 13. And I was actually looking at some books that I found around, lying around. And I was like hmm, this is interesting, and I looked at it and I’m like, wow, I had no idea it could happen this way, and I had that surprise moment. And then, as I got older, about 16, 17 and I got to experience it and I’m like,tThis is totally different from what I saw in that picture.
SF: How is it different?
Y: Well, because it’s more of a personal experience than anything else, right? The picture is just a picture, it shows you basically how it’s done kind of thing, but when you get into it it’s a whole different story, because it’s - especially for the first time, I’m sure a lot of people might this experience - you’re completely nervous, you don’t know what to do, you’re a wreck, and then things happen and you’re like oh my God, this is awesome! or, not so good. For me, it was awesome.
SF: What do you wish you’d been told about sex?
S: Well, when I had my first experience I wish I was told that there could be sex with a same sex partner. Yeah. So, ‘cause, my first experience wasn’t with a woman, and I was, yeah. And then when I had sex with a woman it was a completely a different story. I was like okay, yeah, this is what I’m talking about! [laughs]
