Terminolgy

Being a sex worker who is also in the process of transitioning, sometimes I find myself being in an uneasy alliance with the tools of the trade. Terminolgy.

Shemale. Chick with a dick. Fully Functional. Tranny.

I don’t identify with any of those terms full stop once I leave the hotel room or finish replying to a email or updating my website. I identify as a woman, no more, no less. The male appendage between my legs is my ticket to a successful transition, and at the end, will be no more.

There is no such thing as a women with a penis. Yet I feel stuck at the moment inbetween worlds, because to a lot of guys, being with a transsexual is all about the penis. We’re vessels, a delivery system, a feminine, non-threatening method of delivering a cock to the hungry mouths and holes of guys.

I’m going to explore this a lot in later posts. Thanks for reading.

    Many of us do what we have to do to get to the other side. That’s something that far too many “middleclass” transitioners forget. Blessings to you and keep growing your surgery fund dear…..in a safe place.

    Hmmm, the needs must as the Devil drives or so they say in the UK. Thank you catkisser, yes it is all about the surgery fund, an more importantly, the plan behind the fund. Getting into sex work without a long-term plan (or plans) can just put you onto the Downward Spiral before you even know it.
