A transgender teen couple have held themselves together under pressure when quizzed about the mechanics of their sex life during a television interview in the US.
Katie Hill, 19, and Arin Andrews, 17, spoke candidly to host Trisha Goddard about their transgender journeys – Katie male-to-female and Arin female-to-male – while appearing on her daytime show.
However, during the interview, the sweethearts were caught off guard when Ms Goddard asked the minors whether they were yet to consummate their relationship.
Katie was first to respond, acknowledging that it was a question on many people's lips.
"Does that leave out a love life?" Goddard pressed, pointing out that Arin was yet to undergo sex reassignment surgery.
"It's never about that, really for us," Arin replied.
"It's about the connection and the love that we have."
The story of Katie Hill and Arin Andrew's romance went viral last year after the two met through a support group for young transsexuals in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The couple are hoping to raise awareness of trans issues by sharing their own experiences.
