Caitlyn Jenner made headlines a couple of years ago when she announced that she would be transitioning, since then however, she has not spoken often in interviews about the gender reassignment surgery she underwent.


When asked why she doesn't often share the details of the surgery in an interview with Larry King, Jenner said that it came down to a matter of respect.

"Out of respect. Not just for me - because those things are very personal, wouldn't you agree?" Jenner described. "And just because you're trans doesn't mean that you have to ask every question... I understand that people are fascinated by that kind of stuff." 

Jenner was asked to further discuss the process she went through and finally spoke about it.

"It's not as bad as you think. I'll go with that," Jenner explained. "It's not quite as bad as you think, but most trans women do not have surgery. It's only about I think 32 percent."

"What's between your legs doesn't define who you  are," she added. 

On the topic of her sexual orientation, Jenner simply says "I don't know," and that "I don't even go there." After explaining the difference between sexuality and gender, she asked King if she had any hope for her future sexual endeavors in her later years.

King replied "yeah, you do."
