A transgender woman has opened up about how she chose to remain a virgin until she was 25 as she was scared that she might be attacked by partners.She said despite being fully transitioned, she lived in fear of being attacked, and chose not to have any romantic involvement with men or to have sex with anyone because she felt she might be attacked.Now having had her first boyfriend at 33, Call says she feels “10 years behind” her friends, despite beginning hormone replacement therapy at 17, and undergoing gender reassignment surgery at 22.She says: “Even once I had transitioned I shied away from relationships and being intimate with men for a long time out of fear of being attacked. Being a transgender woman can be terrifying.“I feel like I am 10 years behind my friends in terms of relationships and experience and sometimes I still feel like that sensitive 16-year-old trying to figure out who I am – and I worry men will take advantage of that naivety.”

Adding: “Then in those formative late teen and early 20s years when people do start to explore their sexuality and have relationships, I was just trying to become who I always should have been.”Of not feeling comfortable doing the same activities as her male twin brother, Call, of Exeter, said she would “play hopscotch instead of football” and “with dolls instead of action figures”.
