Caitlyn Jenner Sex Surgery Vanity Fair Interview

(Vanity Fair)

Caitlyn Jenner candidly talks about her genitals and sex life in her Vanity Fair cover story, explaining why gender reassignment surgery isn’t a priority. Gossip Cop exclusively corrected a story last week that falsely claimed Jenner had secretly undergone a procedure to remove her penis, and now the new interview confirms our reporting.

“If you have a list of 10 reasons to transition, sex would be number 10,” Jenner says. She further tells the magazine that there aren’t any immediate plans in the works for such an operation. But Jenner has already had other procedures, including a facial reconstruction surgery that was supposed to take five hours and ended up lasting for 10.

Jenner confesses she had a panic attack afterward, recalling she asked herself, “What did I just do? What did I just do to myself?” Through the help of a Los Angeles Gender Center counselor, who came to her Malibu home, Jenner learned that “such reactions were often induced by pain medication, and that second-guessing was human and temporary,” as Vanity Fair puts it.

With her gold medal Olympic career and her famous Wheaties box, Jenner was often held up as a symbol of the perfect male body. It’s only now, though, that she feels comfortable saying how difficult that was. “People say, ‘Oh my God, what a body—you look great.’ That wasn’t what I was going for,” recalls Jenner. “I could not really cross-dress. I tried to grow my hair out as much as I could without getting yelled at.”

Some of that yelling was actually featured on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” such as an episode last year that Gossip Cop noted at the time showcased Jenner getting teased by Kris Jenner and others for highlighting her longer hair. As Gossip Cop previously reported, elsewhere in the Vanity Fair cover story, Jenner blames Kris’ “mistreatment” for their divorce. What do you think of Jenner’s interview?
