It's hard to get tested in Covid times.
Two pilots are now open to the public, with limited kits available:

- STI, to lab: early everyday before they hit their limit:

- HIV, at home: early every Tuesday only:

The first one is restricted to some geographical locations, so I used my work address...

Don't need to, haven't had physical human contact in over 2 years so STI's aren't really a worry for me

Interestingly the ordering form of the STI kit is very trans-conscious, given that two types of tests are available: swab or urine, depending on how "vaginal" someone is.

I can't see how a swab test would be any good to a post-op transsexual, assuming it is the vagina that is swabbed, since it is a closed system. It's not an actual vagina, It's just a cavity created using the balls sack and the skin from the penis shaft so there are no glands or anything that would give access to the blood stream. I'm not deliberately trying to be crass or anything but it is essentially like cumming into a bag made of skin. It can't lubricate itself or anything so I can't see how a swab would work with a Transsexual unless it's intention is to swab the urinary tract and not the business end of the vagina

@KF,
You are right, of course.
There are more than 1 use-case for trans people.

Someone said :
If you are a trans woman we recommend testing for these infections with a urine sample, even if you have had vaginoplasty.

If you are a trans man who has vaginal sex and you have a uterus and fallopian tubes, then we would recommend a vaginal swab. If you do not have a vagina or do not have vaginal sex then we recommend a urine sample.

That's exactly why I found it interesting that they went through the trouble of asking first if you are male, female, other, and then if it matches your birth gender, and then give easy to follow technical guidelines on how to provide samples.

By the way they just got their max today, so early birds can get one tomorrow morning.

Sometimes yeah, I miss affection more than sex. I don't mind sex if I am dating someone but when I'm on my own and not dating anyone I don't even think about it, I can generally just take it or leave it, it's not really something I consider important. Affection on the other hand, or lack thereof, I think about a lot. That's something that's really important to me. It's pretty much why I'm single, pretty hot as Transsexual go and yet still don't sleep around even though it would be easy for me, because the truth is I couldn't have sex with someone unless I felt something for them.

Yeah I understand what you are saying. It's a tough one.

Ahh I'm not madly bothered by it or anything, I like my own company it's just every now and again I miss little things like kissing and hugging and small stuff like that. To be honest if my landlord allowed me to have a dog I'd probably never date again since I'd get all the affection I wanted off the dog and chances are it would be a better conversationalist than have the people I have dated too

The landlord scene would have made a good opening to some soft porn, but you ruined it with the dog bit

True.
For those with enough disposable income. Or an emergency...
I prefer to go public, in general. Even when I can afford private.
