I rewatched episode 2 of the Korean drama Come Back Mister and
cracked up at the part when Gi-Tak wakes up in his new female body
and goes to the bathroom and tries to grab his package and realizes
that it's not there. He says something like "I don't have it" and
"the thing I'm suppose to have isn't there". With that being said,
how long would it take someone to realize that they had changed
genders especially if the person is a man transforming into a
woman? Wouldn't it be instantly? Wouldn't the loss of mass and
weight in the crotch section be obvious and not to mention being
flat down there? Also, having more weight and mass in the chest

Considering that sometimes I forget things that normal people
don't, like eating or drinking once in a while, I think that I
wouldn't see it instantly, unless such body were a lot different
from mine or the feedback, internal and external, were too.|
Example... I'm 6'9", so, if suddenly things started to be difficult
to reach and appeared to be in higher places, that would trigger a
contemplation moment. However, I doubt that I would feel much
difference going to, let's say, 5'9" if I were playing at the PC or
watching a movie in my bed.
Human cognition take shortcuts whenever it's possible. For
thousands of years, we didn't have abundance of energy, so
evolution lead our bodies to those shortcuts and tricks, saving up
energy. One of those is that we don't need to check every muscle
involved with the action of riding a bike every time we wanna ride.
We just ride. If one muscle has problem, it will trigger a feeling,
usually pain, that will induce us, our conscience, to analyze it.
That was different when we were learning how to ride, when we
consciously payed attention to everything we could.
So, anything that made those shortcuts fail, would makes us unaware
of the changes for awhile.

Wouldn't the voice be an instant giveaway that you were now a
woman? I know in movies and tv shows logic doesn't flow the way it
does in real life but I just don't see how any man could get out of
their bed and not immediately realize that there are two breasts on
his chest and also that his penis has been replaced with a vagina.|

Interesting #5. Never had that sensation - a "ghost penis". Glad
that it IS a ghost now, though.|

Why do writers of TG TV episodes and movies keep going for the
bathroom joke? Maybe it's an easy gag and they aren't familiar with
the genre to realize how unrealistic and overused it really is. I'd
say any major body change would be noticeable really quickly...
height, weight, longer hair, breasts, genitals.|
I like the reveal scenes where the character notices before they
even get out of bed. James' movies and Memory Run/Synapse come to
mind. Cleo/Leo on the other hand had the character drive across
town and carry on complete conversations without ever noticing. The
reveal to the audience and reveal to the character were nice but

I don't think it would be super noticeable at first. But the things
that would call attention to it would be the fact that your thighs
could touch each other unobstructed. Then there's the very slight
weight difference, so also a lack of a jiggle from an organ being
The "wake-up call" would probably be as soon as you thought of
something arousing and things begin happening, but differently.
Also, although a naturally born woman probably wouldn't notice it,
you'd definitely notice the slight rubbing of two parts against
Yes, I've fantasized about this many times. Using the bathroom too.

Ever chip a tooth? Doesn’t it drive you up the wall? It does for me
anyway. My tongue keeps noticing the difference. Even a new haircut
feels definitely different. I have to imagine that waking up in a
completely new body would be even more stranger.|

If you have a beard or goatee, you would definitely be able to tell
instantly. I would also say if you have any noticeable scars,
birthmarks, and tattoos on your hands and fingers, you would know
right away that you're not yourself. I mean if you wake up and see
that your hands are soft, smooth, and not super soft and your
finger nails are painted red or bright pink then you have likely
either become a woman or a drag queen.|

I've noticed that trope used numerous times at this point across
many different mediums. I guess it's a go-to. Character goes to bed
a male, wakes up the next day female and somehow manages to get as
far as the toilet before realizing they're not who they went to bed
Heck, some even have the character go so far as to start urinating
before they finally notice, like the beginning of MentalCrash's
ongoing comic. One wonders just how dangerous a character like that
would be inebriated in public.
Either way, the way I conjure up an answer to that question is ask
myself "what if I woke up missing my hand or having grown an extra
appendage?" or some other impossible-to-miss body alteration. Even
if my mind is still programmed to think something that should be
there is still there, I think as soon as I started doing stuff and
moving around, I'd notice some shenanigans were afoot.
That's assuming the hair, height difference, breasts and voice
didn't tip me off first.

if it was a transformation I'm a side sleeper and shirtless so the
breasts would come into view pretty quickly or be a problem
instantly, i'd probably notice the extra hair on top of my head as
well since sadly I have to shave my head. Then I'd probably reach
down there to confirm, jump up out of bed and go to the nearest
A body swap I'd probably notice the room and blankets changed, then
the same exact order of what i'd notice in a transformation only if
a man is sleeping next to me I'd just slip out of bed. Then I'd
probably try to act like the woman until I could figure out what
happened, trying to find out details as I go.
I'd probably be more scared of a transformation into a girl then a
body swap, because a body swap I still have an identity, it's just
not my own. A transformation, if it wasn't a transformation into
another person, I'd have no identity and wouldn't know what to do.
How do I get my money out of my bank, I wouldn't go to my job, I'd
probably try to find some way to earn money quickly or I just might
show up at a hospital and go from there. Without an identity a
person is pretty much screwed, limited on a job, or a place to live

In reality, I noticed right away. Of course I was expecting to wake
up (from anaesthesia) with some changes. To answer the idea of the
main question, I would have noticed immediately even though I
didn't get out of bed for hours. It's pretty hard to not notice.|
