Question of the Week
"Well, I have a few questions. I'm female. If I were to get an operation and (for lack of better words,) get a penis, would I be able to feel stuff? What I mean is; During sexual intercourse, would I feel what other males (who were born male) feel? Would it be any different? Like the sensations, intensity of it, etc? Oh, and this is probably a stupid question, but would I be able to ejaculate? And would you happen to know what the success rate of the FTM (Female to Male) operation is? I heard it is a lot riskier than a MTF operation."
Evelien's Diary, entry 32: "Trapped"
Evelien's website: www.eveliensnel.com
The first 5 women who succeeded in climbing to the summit of the world's most dangerous mountain, K-2, all died while climbing. A sixth has recently succeeded in this most difficult challenge. Will she succumb to her sport? Jennifer Jordan, author of Savage Summit: the Life and Death of the First Women of K-2, tells us a bit of their stories.
Jordan is a writer, producer, public speaker, reporter and former anchor for NPR's "All things Considered" at WGBH FM in Boston. She has twice lived at the base of K-2 while writing and researching Savage Summit as well as writing and producing the award-winning "Women of K-2" for the National Geographic Channel.
