Isabel Posada wasn't always so confident about her relationship with Gabriel Paboga.

On Sunday night's episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, the Colombia native recounted having some major nerves the first time she was intimate with her boyfriend. Isabel remembered she didn't know what to expect during a sexual experience with the American man, who is transgender — but she was ultimately pleasantly surprised.

"Truthfully, I was a bit scared," Isabel said in Spanish of her first intimate encounter with Gabe. "I didn't know what I was going to find in a physical sense. I didn't even know what those surgeries entailed. For me, it was something incredible — and still is."

Isabel shared more details about their sex life — noting that Gabe feels pleasure in the ways she expected any man would. However, Isabel still had more questions that she hadn't addressed with Gabe — in particular, how he would be able to ejaculate. "Clinically, medically, it's so perfect," she said. "He can be stimulated. I touch him and he feels it."

Their intimate chemistry isn't the only thing Isabel loves about Gabe. She also told her friends her two children adore Gabe — and constantly ask when he's coming to visit.

Isabel and Gabe met through mutual friends at a party when Gabe was visiting Colombia. The duo immediately hit it off and both expressed a strong attraction to the other. Gabe came out as transgender to Isabel shortly after — though she discovered he was trans first by scrolling through his Instagram.

Though Isabel told Gabe she accepted him fully as a man, she previously expressed some concerns about the relationship. "To be honest, I was very nervous," she said on a previous episode. "It was mostly my fear because never in my life did I think that I was going to like a trans guy."

Now engaged and starting a life together in Colombia, Gabe must tell Isabel's family he's transgender. While he's already been welcomed into the family, he worries his truth will cause them to reject him.
