Artbreeder AI turns men into women


Here's another find from the Crossdream Life forum: A new artificial intelligence driven web site called Artbreeder allows you to change the gender, age and color of images of people.

Gulliver Arkham writes:

I imagine many here have already heard about Faceapp, however, there is a new site on the web that I personally think is far better, it's called Artbreeder and you can do all sorts of arty things on it.

Including changing faces, it takes anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on where your upload is in the queue, at the end of which you get not the picture as is, but “an approximation” but oh, the things you can do with that approximation.

With faces, can looks at Children Crossbreed or Edit-Genes and do all kinds of things. 
Over at Crossdreamers Jack Molay has used Artbreeder the site to explore our understanding of what it means to be feminine or masculine.

The Crossdressing Sherlock Holmes



Over at Crossdream Life gulliver.arkham has published a comprehensive overview over the times Sherlock Holmes has crossdressed as a woman:

Along with being the working definition of THE master detective, one of the things you soon learn on reading the original stories about Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about Sherlock Holmes, hereafter known as “The Canon,” is that he was also a master of disguise. Appearing in disguise in 10 stories in The Canon, unless I miscounted, he is so good at the craft that not even Watson is able to tell who he was when playing at being someone else.

There are also crossdressing stories outside the canon, i.e. in stories not written by Conan Doyle.

The discussion also reveals that there has been a female Watson on TV (Elementary) and even a Japanese female Sherlock Holmes (Miss Sherlock).

Testing out new Discord chat room for sharing TG images and videos


I am testing out a new Discord chat room for transgender and crossdreamer fantasies, images, captions, stories and videos, and you can join it here.

If you are not a member of Discord, you should sign up first.

The new Discord "server"  was born out of a discussion over at the Crossdream Life forum, where many felt there was a need to make a clear divide between general discussions about crossdreamer sexuality and fantasies and the posting of erotic images for the sake of enjoying those images.

The Crossdream Life chat room remains the place to discuss transgender, queer, crossdresser and crossdreamer issues.

If you want to explore TG erotica just for the fun of it, however, you may join Xdreams.

Gender Bending in Electric Dreams


The very first episode of Amazon's TV series Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams has a gender bender theme.

(This post contains spoilers, be warned!).

Electric Dreams is a series in the same tradition as The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, with freestanding episodes with a science fiction or fantasy theme.


The script writers have made a clever use of the science fiction reality concept of virtual reality. In this case the virtual reality is so real that it is indistinguishable from real life.

The main character, which starts out as the future cop Sarah, uses a VR machine for therapeutic purposes and finds herself in the past, as a man.

So is it a male to female transformation story? Maybe not. That's the clever part of this story.

In any case, even if the gender change is not the main topic here, there are some interesting reflections of why the virtual reality is relevant for readers of this blog.

Please note that in some countries this episode is listed as episode 5 of season 1.

Is BDSMLR the new tumblr for TG and "sissy" captioning?

TG caption found over at BDSMLR

BDSMLR is not a good name for a site. That being said, it looks like it is on the verge on becoming the new haven for "sissy caption" sites, now that tumblr has banned all porn.

BDSMLR has definitely seen a significant increase in traffic after the tumblr porn ban on December 17, as reflected in this Alexa graph:


BDSMLR has spent a lot of time and money on upgrading the site in order to tackle the new traffic. There are still glitches and bugs, but the site seems to be stable at the time of writing.

The old tumblr TG and "sissy" blogs  are still found over at tumblr, but if you want to access any blog that is considered explicit, you will have to go through your tumblr member panel. The blogs can no longer be accessed via the blog's regular web site. 

Relevant search terms no longer give any useful results and tumblr is blocking any posts its robot think is in violation of the new terms. In other words: It is only a matter of time before it becomes completely useless for the publication of explicit erotic photos and captions.

BDSMLR bans revenge porn, zoophilia, necrophilia, pedophilia, graphic violence and/or "any other type of obscene and/or illegal material." What the latter means is unclear. Since they actively promote their site as an open alternative to tumblr and accepts a wide variety of porn, I suppose TG and feminization material should be safe. 

Below  find some examples of feminization blogs found over at BDSMLR. 

From what I can see the site is dominated by femdom, "shemale" and "sissy" TG sites, as opposed to classical TG caption sites. (I am using quotation marks around "shemale" and "sissy", as I find both terms quite problematic.). 

I suspect the traditional TG caption sites, with less humiliation and more text, are more likely to chose Blogger as their publishing platform. Let us know what you think!

If you have moved your site from tumblr to BDSMLR or somewhere else, let us know by adding the new name and URL in a comment below.

Tumblr bans porn blogs, and destroys a whole tg subculture


Tumblr has decided to close down all porn blogs from December 17, and is even banning images with "female-presenting nipples". That term is as stupid as tumblr's move.

Blogger presented a similar plan some years ago, but Google changed their minds, apparently concluding that erotic adult subcultures could be a good thing, and the erotic Blogger blogs survived.

This means that the tg caption and fiction blogs hosted by Blogger survive, while the tg and "sissy" blogs found over at tumblr will die.

There is a kind of generational divide between the transgender fantasy blogs found over at Blogger and the caption blogs found over at tumblr. The blogger blogs often contain longer texts or stories about male to female transformation. The tumblr blogs are more slogan-like: erotic memes meant for quick consumption.

There exists, to my knowledge, no realistic alternative to tumblr for these blogs at this point. Blogger lacks the social sharing function found on tumblr.

Sexual Chemistry, end of the century sex change fantasy

In 1999  Mike Sedan directed and presented a sex comedy called "Sexual Chemistry." It was one of many softcore straight to DVD films made by him, but this was, I believe, the only one that had a sex change as its main theme.

The movie is set in a company that is trying to produced a libido-enhancing drug, and the scientists are competing to find a solution.

The main character, Robert, has stored a few potions from a previous relationship with a witch, and decided to adopt that potion to this new purpose. It turns out the new drug works as announced, but it has also has a serious side effect: It transforms Robert into a woman.

Sure, this is a B movie, it uses the old mad scientist scenario, and the script and the acting are so and so, but compared to many other movies of this kind, I think it is fun to watch.

I especially liked the way Robert shamelessly enjoy's his newfound female sexuality.

The DVD may be bought through some of Amazon's resellers.
