Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Zerophilia

Already playing in New York, opening tomorrow in Chicago and next week in L.A., Zerophilia is a movie I think I might put on my To-B-Seen list.
"Androgyny rules in “Zerophilia,” Martin Curland’s audacious feature about a fictional chromosomal abnormality that wreaks havoc with one’s genitals. When the virginal Luke (Taylor Handley) is energetically deflowered by a mysterious Englishwoman he encounters while camping, the incident triggers a dormant condition known as zerophilia, which causes sufferers — if that’s the word — to spontaneously change their sex. Thereafter, every orgasm comes with a price, and it’s not one you can charge to your credit card."
The rest of the NY Times review of the movie is here.

    Of course this is merely an example of art imitating biology since serial hermaphrodites are known from various fish and other creatures. See for example:
