mysteryfag

Does anyone know what ever happened to mysteryfag? I really enjoyed his writing, and have often wondered what has happened to him?

porn and post op
Really can anyone give any feedback on how likely it is I'll be able to get into porn post op? I'm scheduled for the op this September and having once dreamt of pornstardom (corny I know) I have rediscovered that goal in some sense.

I had asked previously about porn a while ago and I know that trans porn, specifically transwoman porn, is a rather large market but I don't hear much about post op trans people in the industry.

Any feedback?

toys.
hey there.
The reason I am posting this here is because in the last few years these lj communities have done nothing but good for me, so this is me giving back.

First, a bit about me..
I am currently 1 year and 6 months into medical transition. I take 100 mg of injectable testosterone every ten days. I am 3 months post chest reconstruction surgery. Since starting on hormones my entire sexual world has opened and my likes/dislikes have changed completely. With my ever changing body I am more in tune to explore and that's why I am here.. to share my experiences. Basically I took another job up.. testing out sex toys. I have created this on-line journal in order to post about toys I have tested in order to broaden a perspective from someone who identifies as FTM. There are many sex toys out there and the growing trans community seems to be at a loss as to what might better work for their bodies and minds. I would like to be another voice in the mix to help people who might need a reference. If you'd like to add me ([info]toys_for_t_boys) please feel free. I promise I wont fill your page with loads of crap, as I really only do about 3 reviews a week. Usually under cuts as to not take up too much space. anyway, I hope my reviews help in your search for the perfect toy!
ps. I just got started on this project so there really isn't much to read yet.

x-posted. Apologies if you see this a few times.

moral/ethical question
I am getting back into sex work and I have a client for Friday who is HIV positive and shows on his post (squirt) that he always bearbacks. He has agreed to use condoms for sucking and fucking but I still have some concerns.

Does anyone have any knowledge/advice on what risks I might possibly be taking here?

Thanks, Noah

Trans Sex Worker Photography Project
HO: TRANS SEXWORKER PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT



CALL OUT FOR SUBMISSIONS



This photographic project will document transgender sexworkers who work presenting as the gender they were assigned at birth and no longer identify with. I will be applying to exhibit the series at different events in Australia, mostly at queer and sexworker arts events and also online. Since the photos will be released publicly, contributors will have to be comfortable with disclosure to some extent. However, I will not use your legal name and I’m open to negotiating measures to protect your identity if you would like to contribute but have privacy concerns.



To participate, you will have to consider the implications of the associations of your image and the content.



I am a transgender hustler who works as a lady babe. Primarily, this pays the bills. It also has been both affirming and dysphoria exacerbating, a result of limited financially viable representation options, the safest option, performative and an opportunity to max out lessons in the behavioral codes of feminine wiles. It’s creating a stronger affiliation with femmes and my class background. I feel moments of concern for my safety if a client recognises my face on the street and feels betrayed, and moments of satisfying queer subversion when being told, “You’re the hottest chick I’ve ever seen”, accompanied with a wad of cash.



I’m interested in documenting the process of embodying the rentboy/stripper minx/mistress/etc within, the transformation, the relationship that incurs with our bodies, the culture of trans people sexworking to pay for their medical transition, the connections between transgender identity and class, sexwork and class. I am really happy to have any discussions about representation.



The requirements:

· Email self portrait photographs (taken by you, either by holding the camera or with a self timer) taken while you’re in your ho persona, preferably at work but about to head to work is fine too. Around 5 photos would be great.

· Do not change the resolution settings on the photos

· Working photographs taken in the past are fine if you are not currently working

· Give me the following info in the body of the email:

your working name (this can be the one you use or one made up for the project),

your contact info

the text “I consent to the use and publication by Warren Gracie of the attached photographs of me”. Include any conditions you have (eg. No online publishing)

A short blurb on who you are/your experiences or thoughts on working as the gender you were assigned at birth/why you wanted to participate (this part is optional)

· The deadline is May 30 2009.



This project is inclusive of pre, post and non medical transition transgender people, including but not limited to female-to-male, male-to-female and genderqueer transgender people. If you identify as trans, you are welcome to participate.



The term ‘sex-worker’ is an umbrella term, including but not limited to dance, full-service, porn, domination, submission, fetish, gf/bf experience and peepshow workers.



Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Dear Penny Arcade
Way to make me really, really sad.

I was so much looking forward to seeing someone who is such an engaging performer and sex worker ally talk about their history in queer worlds, about going through the AID's crisis, about being around the drag queens and trans women who fucked shit up at stonewall.

And you were amazing! You drew me in and almost made me cry while talking about seeing your friends die and how the overwhelming devastation of "gay cancer" has almost been forgotten today, even as we are still catching it. Of course, I may have been so affected because five minutes into the show after you started making racially fetishistic remarks I took mushrooms so as to make a surreal experience at least a little interesting as well.

Referring to your white stripper accompaniments as "smart", "academic", and "pretty" and then turning around and introducing the dancers who were people of color primarily by talking about their racial background and the color of their skin is like, really really tacky. Has nobody ever pointed that out to you? If you're the fag hag you say you are I would have imagined that someone would have remarked on such an unclassy act. Have you ever talked to your dancers about how they feel about being talked about as examples of their race rather than as complex human beings?

Rest of rage under cutCollapse )

Sex Work Panels at Critical Resistance in Oakland. Sep 25-28
mmm, it's been hurting to walk down stairs again, & the silver lining to the aging body is that when one gets busy & forgets self care, the vulnerabilities of the mortal flesh will holler for stage. My knees have been hurting again & that has become, in the last couple of years, my body's hints that I'm overbooked & under-nursed.

I've slept alot of the day & picked up some supplements & am sitting down after this to chart out my week in effort to take care while I have an anatomy exam on Thursday & CR10 sessions this weekend.

SEX WORKERS & anyone really: please tell BayArea folx about the Critical Resistance Conference happening in Oakland, at Laney College, Sep. 25-28. This prison abolition conference marks the 10th yr. anniversary for this organization, founded by Angela Davis, that will prove to be instigating & inspiring! I don't know how often I hear people talk about the end times, & I witness people sinking deeper into their mattresses, while there are considerable actions, perspectives & ideologies that can lift the apathy from our follicles, & damn-if that doesn't feel better than bitterness, believe.
there will be more than 200 workshops, as well as incredible performances from across the nation & I believe world. & there's an amazing medical/healing space with free body work! It is free, no excuses to not come out & learn how the p.i.c. impacts all people in the u.s. & abroad. How we can remove its joints.

criticalresistance.org/article.php

I have organized & will facilitate a session called:

"Sex Workers Buck & Behead the Criminalization of their Trade," that will take place Saturday, September 27, 4-530pm.

Prop K Street Action
........the prop k art action faction did our first number today, by the Castro Muni station & the passerbys were very interested & were unanimously not aware of Prop K, the San Francisco decriminalization bill that will be on the Nov. election ballot. I came out, with one of those ridiculous halloween costumes turned cheap disco, with a cheap pair of gold 1" heals, to DANCE. I think the outfit was originally designed to be a Star Wars costume, gold, buckle print on the nylon shirt, & crease lines. But, really does look solid gold with the heals. Alas, the emergency phone call last night, tore me away from  pulling together a couple of synchronized moves with the others in the fetal dance troupe. So, there was no dancing today. Instead a performance about how decrim can lessen violence to hustlers.

This is only the second proposition I've organized around since 1999's Prop 21. It is a test in my familiarity with the political process, inspired by curiosity of how informal trades & those that advocate for people that work in informal trades, are located in our false democracy. I am interested to know if prostitution, like gay marriage, could be used as a campaign strategy, & if not, are the informal trades, like transgender people, too left. Bodies are political lines.

Also, how do trades that do not produce a product reduced within capitalism?

Right, so while I ponder the big questions, articulation of prostitution in the current economic framework is necessary.

On another angle, how political players that work in informal trades independently do, or do not come together to do political work? How would the tactics here look if we had a communist or socialist history?

Hustler talk at SF State, student's responses
I joined other current/former hustler/hookers in a presentation of sex work to a "variations of human sexuality" class on tuesday.

Here are some of the things folks learned, then suggestions for future presentations:

"Nothing surprises me anymore."

"Not all sex workers are just slutty females and reasons they do it were surprising."

"I was uber surprised that pandering laws could be applied to spouses & dependents of sex workers. That's outrageous, yet at the same time, relatively congruent with the hypocrisy & discrimination (based on Judeo-Christian sexual repression) already prevalent in our society."

"That all of you are educated, intelligent, and responsible loving individuals."

"Sex workers are actually clean."

"Not all sex workers are rich & famous or they make a lot of money. Actually they are just like other people."

"Learned not all sex workers are rich because I always thought that they made a lot of money. Was surprised that some sex workers are actually well educated because I thought that people who got into sex work had a lack of education so they just do the work for the money."

Suggestions:
"There is still a dark side of sex work. Violence & drugs still are involved, and none of that story was really told."

"Make me feel more comfortable with the exploitation of sex...sex is something I feel is very intimate and special. I feel that sex work is like the jock who lives to just take sex for material gain causing the emotional aspect of sex to be killed. I feel that stereotype activity is invalid." (we did an excercise where we listed about 20[from us & the class] stereotypes of sex workers on the board, then discussed such stereotypes)

"State what gender each of you service, and what your personal sexual preference is"

"I think what can improve is if everyone can speak about a negative experiences that involved a client that became violent such as raping, beating or not paying them after the service was given."

Geographically Based Inquiry
Is anyone on this list currently living/working in Providence RI?

We discovered recently that prostitution is indeed legal thier, within certain bounds (the catch phrase is "if there's four walls and a door that closes, its all good.)

My lover and I both need to get to work doing "the ho work" a.s.a.p., in order to begin a whore-path journey across the nation/continent over the next year (end up in SF, but for now, we need to get started, and live in western MA.)

Also, does anyone know the subtext of the RI laws? How the work differs for cis vs. trans persons? Trends in the local industry?

Jumping back in
hey all the brilliance, I'm jumping back in the hustle, unable to erase hustling money from my memories, and my current budget pitfalls.

I'm in SF. I have experience working at hot tubs or doing outcall. Wondering if anyone in SF knows of websites to post ads in that are cheaper and possibly more effective than rentboy(i saw a boi post there, but the cisgendered guys i know on there say they don't see transmen there).

i know shit is competitive, i only want to know if there is some option between the B.A.R. type classified and Rent boy?

thanks, blake

Baphomet's Sanctuary- Western Mass., Aug 17-19
Baphomet's Sanctuary (feel free to crosspost as is appropriate)

An Exploration of Third Gender Sacred Sexuality

Sex is sacred, and can be a source of great spiritual power and beauty. Walking the path of being the Sacred Third in this world can also be an integral and powerful part of one's spirituality. Yet in general, few know what a cross-section of those two paths would look like. The surviving traditions of sacred sex and sex magic do not have clear guidelines for the work of those of us whose souls, energy, and sometimes our bodies exist somewhere between male and female. What does sacred sexuality look like when we do it, in all our ambivalent glory?

This weekend will explore these possibilities in depth, with three full days of workshops, rituals, and activities. Some proposed workshops are:

Shapeshifting and Astral Sex
Sexual Energy and Breathwork for the Third Space
Sacred Toys: The Original Meaning of "Fetish"
Sacred Dance As An Erotic Offering
The Hermaphrodeities Of Sex
Touch, Dysphoria and Body Congruence
Energy Work Within Boundaries and Barriers: Safe Sex and Issues of Consent
Kurgarra and Galatur: Opening the Underworld

When: August 17-19, Friday noon to Sunday 6 p.m. You must arrive by noon on Friday, because that is when we discuss rules for the weekend. You can leave whenever you want. If you would like to come in Thursday night and camp over, there is no extra charge, just let us know when you will be coming in.

Where: Cauldron Farm in Hubbardston, Massachusetts.

What to Bring: This is a camping event, so bring a tent, camping gear, food for the weekend, flashlights, sunscreen, bug repellent, and appropriate clothing for the woods in August. There is a cold shower, a latrine, and a fire circle for cooking campfire food, but this is a no-frills gathering, which is why we can keep the price low. You might also want to bring: Large cushions. Soft mats. (There will be a lot of sitting on the ground for classes.) Backjacks. Folding chairs. Sex toys and other implements, if you have them. Sacred or festive clothing for dancing. Drums and musical instruments. Books on sacred sexuality that you think might be useful for other attendees. Towels and blankets. Donations of latex (unlubed comdoms, dental dams, and especially gloves), or towels, or blankets, or wet-wipes, are welcomed enthusiastically by the staff. Thank you!

Price: $25 for the weekend. Registration is due by August 1st. (We will have PayPal for registrations set up on the Cauldron Farm website soon.) Your fee goes entirely for such things as toilet paper, trash bags, soap, water, rehydration fluids, latex, towels, printed handouts, etc. The staff is unpaid and no one is making a profit here. Those who donate healthy snack food to the general table will be blessed.

I plan on attending and likely I'll be teaching something, so for info on me, visit: www.PassionAndSoul.com

sex worker radio
1. Sex Workers’ Internet Radio Lounge seeks audio

"SWIRL" stands for Sex Workers' Internet Radio Lounge. SWIRL will be an audio-only webcast where sex workers will have the opportunity to air their own "radio" programs, present their own songs and poetry (and other audio art) and share helpful community information. SWIRL will be both a fun gathering place for sex workers and their friends, and a place where you can hear important information about sex worker issues from around the world. For more information about the project, go to:

Curious about porn actors
Heya all.
I am a full time erotic eduactor, porn actress, Dominatrix, occassional sex worker, and pornographer. Full time in the industry, varying sides of it. My websites are here:
http://www.ropelover.com
http://www.bridgettharrington.com

I have always been hyper femme in my porn, and since my head shave 2+ years ago, have started doing more and more gender blurring smut on RopeLover- but have heard no feedback either way about the issue from my fan base. However, I have lost a great bulk of my work as a vanilla porn actress because, well, I'm not girly girl enough most of the time any more... I can be, and I'm good at it, but I think the word has gotten out (probably from my big mouth) about my gender issues at large. Do I plan on transitioning- no idea... but that is not the issue.

The question-
Are there any porn actor/resses on the list, or hell, sex workers of any field, that have stayed in the field pre through post op? I know Buck Angel (www.buckangel.com), but his porn in that name and ID started post top op. Tara Emory (mtf/gender fucker- www.tara-ts.com), the same. I am curious if you or anyone you know in the biz that appeared in front of the camera has covered both sides of the porn gender range on film. Writers like Pat Califia, though being sex workers, are a differnt category because their bodies are not their way of life.

My body is, and I am slowly changing parts of my body and my way of living... so I am curious. I have also been debating about starting up a trans, punk and gender fucker escort agency in Australia... but am still stateside.

un question
i want to get started doing massage. i've got some training, but no license or anything like that. i also don't have a car and can't use my own place. is it really dangerous doing outcalls? esp considering i'd probably be going to hotels and stuff, just cause their easier to get to by pub transport? i want to get a partner to work with, so i can feel a little safer, and because i don't really know how not to get myself arrested, but i don't know how to go about doing that either.

what i do have is a couple of interesting ideas for marketing the sensual side of things. i inherited a violet wand, and using it i can conduct current thru my hands, which some people really dig. i'd like to market that as an unusual kind of sensual massage.

oh ps i'm ftm. i don't quite pass, so i guess i've got to make that a selling point too.

i'd love to talk to other ftm pros, esp bodyworkers, so if you want email me at male.r.daemon at gmaildotcom

newbie
So I'm brand-y new to this. The idea has always intrigued me, and I just recently got an offer. But I got the offer as a girl. I'm not out to him as trans. I mean, all the body parts he's looking for will be there but...

I dunno guys. As odd as it sounds, it's something that I've always wanted to do, atleast to try and have the experience. And the more I think about it, the more it turns me on. (and rent/bills are fucking out of control) But really? I have no idea where to start.

Help a brother out? What on earth am I doing?
