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.

Wicked on a Gender Bender

It isn't often the porn industry goes on a gender bender, and when  it does the results are rarely impressive. Wicked recently presented a male to female transformation story called Cursed, and it is a mixed blessing.

For some reason nearly all movies of this kind starts out with a misogynistic man offending women with his clueless and sexist behavior.

In this movie, as in many others, a witch decides to teach him a lesson. The witch in this movie is of a younger and more sexy model, that is true, but the basic storyline is the same.

Since this is a porn movie, the acting is pretty bad. There is one exception, though: Whitney Wright does a  good  job playing the role of post-transformation, post-traumatic, Ryan.

There are no bathroom scenes of the "oh God, where did my cock go" type. It actually takes some time before he realizes what has happened, and that is when his ex-girlfriend Alexa turns up at his door. This obviously ends up with him cheating on his male self as Alexa's lesbian lover.

Porn movies including gender changes most often stay away from the male to female transformer having sex with a man.

I guess this might cause some serious identity conflicts in the regular straight male audience watching the film.  This was what happened in Wicked's previous gender bender movie, Switch, where a man swapped bodies with his wife (played political porn celebrity Stormy Daniels.

Cursed, however, ends with a bizarre scene where the female Ryan meets the male Ryan and have sex together in the hope of merging their two bodies into one male one. This never makes any sense, and even less so when we find out that the witch intended to switch him back, anyway.

In other words: The gender change is mainly a silly plot device that does not really do it for people who are looking for transgender erotica.

Destiny – a TG trip back to the 1960s

TG fiction and comics are full of clichés, and that is fine with me. But sometimes there comes a long a completely original concept that blows your mind. The latest comic by Femur and Smooch is like that.

I have never seen anything like it. The storytelling is great, the illustrations spot on, and the historical settings impeccable.

There are limits to what I can tell you without giving the game away, but the story takes place in the late 1960s in USA. Chad is searching for his missing brother Jeremy, and a meeting with a girl in San Fransisco leads him to a hippie commune in a remote part of Marine County. This collective seems to be run by a man called Max, but for some reason all the other members are women – sexy women, beautiful women, attractive women.
