Thai Surgeons Work Wonders! Girls Who Used To Be Boys Are Practically Undistinguishable

Date July 11, 2019 17:23

Many of you must have heard that there are quite a few representatives of the so-called “third sex” in Thailand. These people are women who used to be men. In their homeland, they are referred to as “kathoey,” but to the rest of the world, they are better known as “ladyboys.”

Most often, ladyboys work in beauty salons, restaurants, as well as in entertainment, tourist centers, bars, and cabarets. The main reason for Thai men’s gender change is the lack of decent and well-paid jobs.

In recent years, the skills of local plastic surgeons have reached such a high level that telling modern ladyboys from ordinary girls is practically impossible. Can you do it? We invite you to test your intuition with the help of a quick mock test!
