All Dolled Up In Bellhop Drag

Transvestites make me hot.

I mean, look at them! Eddie Izzard, Tim Curry. Men in stockings and lingerie, makeup, that come-hither look. My little snoopy is sweating just thinking about being near them.

I’m really comfortable with my sexuality, thankyouverymuch. I loves the mens. I loves the ladies, but in a different way. And I can tell (and often shout it out loud) when a woman is looking especially sexy. It’s a purely aesthetic quality I admire, and why not tell your gal-pal, “You look HOT today!”

I’m still sort of puzzled on the transvestite thing, though.

Why do I have that attraction? And don’t tell me, ladies, that your little throbby areas didn’t go wild when you first saw those fuck-me pumps keeping time with the drumbeat when Frank-N-Furter was making his first entrance in the elevator. Sexy, no? Sexy, YES!

Is it because they remind us of…well…us? Is it the fact that, aesthetically, they look pretty darn luscious in the clothing (their legs generally look better in fishnet stockings than mine…but that’s jealousy talkin’)? Is it just that these men are daring enough and comfortable enough with who they are to dress like that in public, and don’t hide? Or are we simply hoping that, in our fantasies, they’ll go shopping with us and be truthful when those pants really do make our asses look huge?

I read an article yesterday at Shades of Grey that discusses a study on bisexuality and whether or not it’s a real phenomenon in men. I love Charlie’s post, the study itself is fraught with peril…FRAUGHT, I tell you! The act of measuring a man’s reaction to various types of porn and how hard he gets really tells you…mmm…not much about his sexual preferences, IMHO. But the post got me thinking…we’re all supposedly a teeny-weeny bit bisexual, in some fashion (repressed or not). So, is my lust for transvestites a function of the inate bisexual traits that we all have? Or is it, as I stated above, a function of aesthetics? Or does it really matter, as long as it turns me on and I have great sex with Sergei? (CLARIFICATION: Sergei does NOT dress in drag, or any sort of women's clothing. I just get turned on watching trannies, go find Sergei, and jump his bone.)

Oh, and to clarify, Eddie and Tim are my top trannies. I didn’t mean to overlook the original drag queens…Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, and Bugs Bunny. Love ya!

I've got it, too, Mona.... I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. I am also unclear on the reasons why. I find it *hot* and I also find it very intriguing to think about a friendship/relationship with someone TV/TS, for all the reasons you proposed and more.

All right, for the record, I do not help Mona out with this particular fantasy. I am the appreciative beneficiary of whatever she plays out in that wonderful little head of hers, but I do not, myself, engage in transvestism for her or my benefit. I do occasionally dance to Erasure and Abba, am the occasional target of flirtatious banter from players for the other team, and I can recognize many male professional athletes by their build alone, but these things make me - well rounded, not light in the loafers.

I think it's a couple things. One, women's clothing is deliberately designed to be sensually attractive--tactile fabrics, drape, body-conscious, and so on. High heels draw attention to the legs and ass. Basically, high-femme clothes = body-conscious clothes. So there's that.

Two, we're all trained to respond to women as sex objects, men and women alike. The "women = sex" equation is pretty deeply engrained in our culture (back in the day, women were politely! referred to as "the sex," even). So yeah, het women recognize and respond to "sexy" images of women because that's what "sexy" means. So it makes sense that het women would respond to the combination of man + "sexy" in that sense.

Those are my theories, and I'm stickin' with 'em.

Btw, Sergei, for the record: wearing women's clothing doesn't make guys gay ;)

I'm familiar with that record, B, thank you. I am comfortable with my sexuality. I am not, however, comfortable in women's clothing.

LoL, well, really, who is? It's not about comfort!

(I'm kidding. I actually think it's quite possible to be femme and wear comfortable clothes--right now I am wearing a sarong because it is a ZILLION DEGREES and I pity anyone who has to wear pants and a shirt--but I can't pass up the joke.)

i can't say i've ever been turned on by a man in drag, but i've always had the desire to play dress up with a guy...
i should go find me a playmate now :)

I don't find transvestites attractive in any way, but now transexuals are a whole different story!!!

As old as I am (and maybe this is the problem), I can't seem to recall Sid Caesar dressing in women's clothes...

Bob Hope in "Road To Morocco" on the other hand, did play his and Bing's aunt.

And remember, I can always be reached talking to myself during TCM marathons... ;>

You must have gone nuts with "Some Like It Hot" and "Bosom Buddies," huh? The only sex appeal I see with men in drag, personally, is that skirts lend easy access to the naughty bits. That's the extent of it for me. No snoopy involvement.

Of course, Eddie and Tim don't go full-out drag. The fellas in my neighborhood who walk down Halsted in drag tend to go with the high heels, spangly dress, giant boobs, trashy makeup, big wig. A little more 6'4" Tammy Faye, a little less Frank N. Furter. Would a 6'4" Tammy Faye get you interested in Sergei, too?

Midwest: Yes, there was sex. No womens clothing. No clothing of ANY kind!

Julie: If you find a TV/TS, ask them how to accessorize...I STILL haven't figured that one out.

Sergei: I added clarification..."Sergei does NOT dress in drag". BTW, I love it when you dance to Erasure, it's a beautiful thing!

BitchPhD: Oh yes, women's clothing does have a much more sensuous feel than mens. I'm getting out my own sarong to wear this weekend, you fashion trend-setter you!

Annush: I've always wanted to try to put makeup on a guy, but, alas, the closest I got was putting eye shadow and mascara on my girl-child for a dance recital...sorta like trying to put makeup on a jumpy cat.

Jay: You should post on this, I'm intrigued!

Mr. Jones: I have an image in my head of Sid and Imogene dressed up in sort of Carmen Miranda headgear and dresses and Sid with a high squeaky voice. Fiddlesticks, I'll have to check that DVD-wise this weekend.... Ooh, heads-up, check out "Caesars Writers" if you haven't...the FUNNIEST thing EVER!

Orange: 'Some Like It Hot' is one of my favorite movies! Tony Curtis, I'm sorry, he was beautiful! And yes, unfortunately, I think a 6'4" Tammy Faye would probably get my vag flowing pretty liberally. Dang it all...!
