Yes, (probably) often. While you're at it can we have cheap, reversible, etc. fertile<->infertile too?

The contraceptive pill is pretty damn close to that, once you've found the right one for the individual.

I'm very fond of my endocrine system, but it's not the best in the world, and I don't think it would appreciate being constantly bombarded with hormones for no good reason, so no.

Would be idly curious, but not curious enough to go and make an appointment, I think. If I could change sex by force of will fast enough to go there and back in a single day (like the Culture, but much quicker), I'd probably give it a try one weekend when I had nothing better to be doing. But if I had to faff about making appointments, going to clinics, sitting on the waiting list for a few weeks before I could get it reversed, etc, then I don't think it'd be worth the hassle.

Is that cheap and easy enough to be portable for home use?

Maybe. Could be interesting.

It would be pretty cool to swap genders with your significant other for a bit, for experimental purposes.

This is assuming your significant other has a different gender to you...

People whose SOs have the same gender can already perform this operation.

But in that situation it isn't particularly interesting; so rjw76 is correct in stating that pavanne's assertion that "it would be pretty cool" depends on the assumption that the genders involved are distinct. :-P

Subject to claroscuro being OK with it, probably yes, to see what it was like at least...

Wouldn't bother me in the slightest! Be interesting to discover if you then became a gay woman?!

I can't really answer your poll, though. I think if I weren't married to you, I would indubitably try it. Since I am, and would rather be than anything, and you are straight, I almost certainly wouldn't, 'cos I'd be too worried I wouldn't want to reverse it. IYSWIM.

Yes... it would be great fun. Provided it continued to be cheap, reversible, safe etc.

I'd certainly want to try it. Now, if it was _irreversible_ I wouldn't go anywhere near it...

There is something incredibly seductive about the idea of switching sexes long enough to have my partner do the pregnancy bit, rather than me, but as I don't have a partner likely to agree to that any time soon, I'm still in the no camp.
