Maybe it is because so many people are treating us rough and often reduce us to sexual objects. But if katoeys are among themselves they treat each other very fond and soft. There is a lot of hugging and holding hands and when we sleep together in one bed, we will often cross legs. So there is a lot of physical contact, that won`t find with other people. Everything is very close.
As an example I post today a picture of me kissing my friend Ay. It is not that we are a couple, but we are just very close friends.
Call it Ladyboy Love if you want.
