Firstly I would like to clear up any confusion around the term Tranny. By this I mean Transgender (TG), which includes Transvestites, Cross Dressers,
Pre and Post Op Transsexuals, Drag Queens and so on. Go to Wiki if you want to get the low-down on all the sub-classifications.
A few years ago I had a wacky girlfriend who liked to dress me up in her clothes. She had a lot of wigs too so it was easy to achieve the whole Drag
Queen effect. I thought it was a bit of good clean fun - she had some pretty groovy outfits. It wasn’t really a sexually stimulating activity for me
or for her (ie we did not do this as foreplay to sex or in love making role-play).
As a prank I thought I would go to one of my friend’s birthday parties dressed like Ginger from Gilligan's Island. It was a beach party and the
middle of summer. I wore a stuffed bikini top and a short sari skirt (for obvious reasons). My wig was just like Ginger's hairstyle. My girlfriend
did the make-up so I looked quite glamorous - something like this :-
I sauntered in to the party by myself (my girlfriend didn't like my friends), carrying an esky (cooler) full of beer and with a sultry look on my
face. Well you could have heard a pin drop. I have never seen so many chins hit the ground all at once. I noticed some of my mates do a double take,
trying hard to work out if it was 'me' in the get-up. Once they did recognize me, the laughter started and things cooled down a bit. There were a
lot of people at the party that I didn't know so it was a bit confronting for me and for them. I was getting a lot of leering glances.
A few hours on, and with much alcohol consumed, everyone was in the mood to party. It was then that many guys started to hit on me. My bum was getting
pinched a lot and my fake boobs continually being groped at. I was a bit drunk myself but still lucid enough to know that something really strange was
happening. I was turning these guys on. Some of them were close supposedly straight friends. It finally got to the point where I had had enough of the
harassment so I took my wig off and removed my make-up. I had often seen straight guys chatting up the drag queens in the dance clubs on a week-end,
but now I had experienced this sexual flirtation first hand.
So my question is this. Why do some men (mostly those who would consider themselves to be straight) get so turned on by transgender people?
Could it be latent homosexuality?
Could there be an anomaly in man's psyche. ie - the man is turned on by the feminine features, although subconsciously he knows it is a male body
Could the physical combination of masculine and feminine in the transgender person, be triggering something that's been hidden in our DNA?
Is it just the mystery of having both male and female sexuality in the one person?
Is sexual attraction and/or the yearning for physical intimacy much more complex than what our social norms perceive it to be? ie - we are just sexual
beings attracted to other sexual beings.
For you guys – have a look at this image and tell me your thoughts. Sorry didn’t mean to exclude women, but from my research it seems like that
this is pretty much just a guy thing going on. If you are a TG person I'd like to hear your opinions too, as it is common for TG's to form
relationships with each other.
Before I sign off I should disclose how I feel personally when I look at a Transgender person, either an image or in the flesh. I do feel some sexual
arousal when I see what I consider to be a beautiful TG person. I have not however been sexually intimate with a TG person in this life time. If I had
to guess as to why I feel this way, I would say that it’s the androgynous aspect of this person that I find alluring, and this feeling is accessed
through my sexuality, because there is no other social norm or function to help me process this.
For those who might think that this issue is only for the perverted minority, then I would draw your attention to the fact that many well known
‘straight’ men have been caught with TG’s unwittingly, such as the comedian Eddie Murphy and famous soccer player Ronaldo.
