Crystal Warren appeared on This Morning to talk about her sex addiction – but did not reveal that she had been born a man
Warren knows people call her ‘easy’, but she insists her desire for sex is something she cannot control
A woman who revealed she has slept with 1,000 men has made another startling confession – she used to be a man herself.
Crystal Warren admits that there could be ‘a lot of angry men out there’ after they learn her secret.
The 42-year-old appeared on This Morning earlier this week to discuss her sex addiction – prompting Eamonn Holmes to ask why she hadn’t turned to prostitution
But she chose not to reveal her true identity until now, though insists she wasn’t ‘trying to hide anything’.
Miss Warren was born Christopher Snowden and changed gender in 2005, she has admitted.
She told The Sun: ‘I’m scared there will be a lot of angry men out there reading this but I have to tell the truth.
‘A lot of people will think I’ve lied to those I’ve had sex with. But I don’t feel I have because I’m a woman and my past is all behind me.
‘I don’t want any man I’ve ever been with to doubt his sexuality now because of this. They didn’t know they were sleeping with somebody like me.’
She says that even when she was young she felt as though she was a female trapped in a boy’s body – a condition known as gender dysphoria.
Miss Warren said her parents realised from a young age – and her dad even bought her a skirt for her fourth birthday.
And she has revealed that as a teenager she would stay at home to try on his mother’s clothes, when her parents were out of the house.
She said: One day when I was 14 I was at the swimming pool with my mum and feeling very depressed and she just told me, “Don’t worry, I know what’s going on. You’re not gay — you’re just not in the right body”.’
Eventually, in 2002 Miss Warren began having hormone and laser treatment to remove body hair and develop a 38B bust.
She underwent counselling before finally having full gender reassignment surgery seven years ago.
She was issued with a Gender Recognition Certificate after the operation, which allowed her to legally change her birth certificate to reflect her new name and sex.
Even before the operation the former shop worker from Brighton, East Sussex, would sleep with men, but says she has bedded most her lovers since she took her decision to become a woman.
She says she admitted to some of them that she was born male.
Miss Warren, who grew up in Bridgwater, in Somerset, told The Sun: ‘I first had sex when I was 17 or 18. I didn’t feel it was right because I was in a man’s body. But I was at the age when you want to experiment sexually and it was the only way I could.
When Crystal Warren appeared on TV to discuss her sex addiction Eamonn Holmes stunned viewers by asking her why she hadn’t turned to prostitution.
The This Morning host (pictured with co-presenter Holly Willoughby) was interviewing Miss Warren after her who claim to have slept with more than 1,000 men emerged.
The 42-year-old revealed on live television how she was unable to keep a job as a result of her constant need for sex.
During the candid discussion, Holmes queried: ‘If you need this five or six times a day, have you never thought about making a business of it? Charging for it?’
To which, Miss Warren replied: ‘What, becoming a prostitute?’
‘Then it becomes a business, then I become maybe like a robot.
‘This way I am enjoying it, I do it when I want to do it, I get to choose who I sleep with.’
Holmes’ interrogation led to an outrage on Twitter with TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh amongst those to vent her anger.
She said: “Omg !! Can’t believe eamon holmes just said to a sex addict on this morning ‘y dont you start a business , and charge for it !’ illegal !”
Harry Bradshaw added: “The awkward momentEamonn Holmes asks you why don’t you just become a prostitute live on TV. #thismorning.”
Whilst another person wrote: “Eamonn Holmes is disgusting! #EndOf”
.’All the men I had sex with knew I was born male, though, until after my surgery.’
Most of the men she met were in gay bars and clubs because that was where she felt ‘most comfortable’.
She admits sleeping with a different man every night was ‘brilliant’, but says it wasn’t as simple as her being gay.
After moving to Brighton Miss Warren began the process of gender reassignment.’
She added: ‘I’m now just like any other girl who wants to enjoy my life after many years without the right body. Now I’ve got the body I want to use it all the time.’
‘I slept with a hell of a lot of men before my operation but once I had the body I’d always wanted my sex drive went crazy.’
