The Sensational Tasha Jones: Exclusive Interview

2015-06-03_15-21-54The star of a new Kennston Productions film, Tasha Jones talks about issues that are as important to adult entertainers as they are to the fans who watch it. While some stars may have a split personality when it comes to performing and real life, Tasha Jones can’t help but be anyone but herself, all the time. We were happy she agreed to talk with us about her experiences in the industry, her outside interests and upcoming projects, as well as what keeps her focused in this sometimes crazy profession.

You are the star of the newly released Oral Sensation in which you are in all five scenes. You get to be the hot girlfriend, the elegant lady in lingerie, and the temptress next door. What is your favorite on-screen role to play? Do you have any favorite scenarios?

I loved making this movie. It is my first adult DVD where I am the star. To be honest I do not have a favorite on screen role. I love it all. As for scenarios, I have always loved real homemade type of movies. You find a guy online, bring him over, turn the camera on, and just go at it. That really turns me on.

tj8You have a great scene with Eddie Wood in Oral Sensation. Your banter and chemistry is really intimate. Was working with him your first female-to-male on-camera sexual experience?

It was my first time being with a F2M. I prefer the term “being with” rather than “working with.” I do not like to think of my filming as “work.” I enjoy it too much. Eddie was amazing to work with, we came up with the concept of how our scene would play out while Michelle Austin was taking a bath, and it took 10 minutes. Then we started to film and ad-libbed most of it. It pretty much happened all in one take.

The sex was amazing! It was so interesting to me to play with someone who looks so manly yet he has a pussy. I am a Trysexual type of person; nothing is off limits to me sexually. But this was something I had never done and really wanted to. Again, the sex was amazing.

Who would your dream co-star be, and who have you loved working with?

My dream co-star was Christian XXX and I got to shoot with him twice so far this year. I have jerked off watching him in videos wishing it was me he was fucking more times than I can count. After years of missing out we were finally in the same city together. We had no plans to shoot, but once we met face to face there was no question it was going to happen. Maybe me more than him but I had to have his cock…even just once.

What made it really special for me was that it was my birthday. I went out to Club Cobra on Thursday night and ran into him. We hung out and made plans for the next day. Before the shoot he took me out to Mel’s Diner and we had breakfast and then we walked around and he showed me places he used to live and told me stories about LA. We talked and got to see a side of each other that was more personal than online. That made the actual scene we shot more intense. He is a really big guy in more ways the one. What really turned me on was that he is a really nice guy and I felt really lucky to experience him and get to live out my fantasy!

You’ve been in the adult industry since the 1990s. There have been several technological changes in the way people watch and access porn. What changes have you seen due to this new technology? Has your content changed because viewers want to see something different than before?

Gosh, what a way to age me…lol. Yea, things have really changed over the years, some are good changes and others are really bad changes. The biggest change I see today is more with the girls. Everyone is a porn star these days. You go on webcam or take a selfie and now that gives you a label of a porn star. Sadly that has taken the “star” away from porn. Now anyone can do it. This really effects how much money you can make doing porn, which then affects the effort people put in making a good porn movie. I miss the old days.

But for the guys, it is great. No longer do they have to leave their house-they can turn on their computer or even their phone now and boom you have all the porn you want at your fingertips. Again, pretty much for free. Reality is that people are getting bored, you have to really do something different to get noticed. How many times can you hear “I have a special surprise for you” or “Oh daddy it feels so good,” when you know that girl is making a shopping list in between moans? Lol. I just think the adult industry is too saturated with underrated basic porn and really bad attempts at acting. Girls are more worried about how they look rather than enjoying having a huge cock spread them open.

tj6You have several interviews available for your fans to read on different websites like Real TrannyLives.com, TransEthics.wordpress.com, and your own blog is full of personal insights. While many performers have on-screen personae while hiding their real personalities, you are very candid about your life, your history and your past. Why did you make a conscious decision to be transparent with your fan base, and let people know the real you?

I have known no other way to be. I have also, since the first day I started doing webcam shows in 1997,  have been myself on and off camera. Meeting me in person or online–it does not matter, I am always just me. I also think my fans have come to expect that from me and it would be disrespectful to them to change that. Has it hurt me in the long run? Yes! Have I changed a bit of how open I am? Sadly yes.

Fans want the fantasy, the untouchable girl they can admire, but know nothing about. As much as my fans love that I am honest, they also would rather spend money on other girls who are not. I have seen it when I am watching another girl’s webcam show and see one of my fans tipping up a storm, but when they are in my room they just want to talk to me for free. Or if I have a personal issue like the discrimination I have had to deal with YouTube, Plenty of Fish, even Grindr. I get no support from my fans. I tested it, I posted a real story about my life and waited an hour. I got 20-30 likes/favorites. Then I posted a picture of my tits within 15 minutes I had over 100 likes and favorites.  Does it disappoint me? Of course. But if you have noticed, I have been less forthcoming on social media these days. Posting less selfies and a lot less nude photos. I feel, if you’re only going to support me when I give your spank bank a free deposit then you will get a lot less spank bank deposits until you learn you have to give me something in return 🙂

tj4Do you ever feel like you are pigeonholed in real life because of any of your on-screen personae?

Dating. I have always had a very hard time dating anyone because like you said above, I am so open about who I am. Guys think that all I wanted was sex. They would fuck me, but would never date me. I have had so many guys over the years tell me that, to my face. It really was disappointing and honestly this may shock some of your readers but, I was single and alone most of my life. I always privately hoped I would have a partner who would accept me for who I am, that we could have an honest relationship and be ourselves.

The truth is it is hard enough dating when you’re Trans let alone a very open sex worker/adult star. That is just too much for most guys to handle. So I went from one bad relationship to another filling the void with guys who were more fucked up then I was. But it was better than being alone. It was also easier for me to not feel less than or rejected. The really sad part was I was open to dating older guys or guys with no money. I just wanted to be accepted.

Then when I was at my lowest and I truly had given up all hope, I married my best friend. We do not have a conventional relationship. But it works for us. We are happy and accept each other’s issues and never judge each other. We allow each other to live life to the fullest. He knows I am a very sexual person, and [I] love my dick, so he has no issues with my life choice. I think that is more important than the fairy tale you grew up being told was the norm.

tj5You’ve mentioned in previous interviews that you are writing a book about your life. What is your motivation for getting your life story out there?

I think I have been writing this book since I was in my 20’s. It hopefully will get done, but every time I think it is finished, life changes and it seems my story is not done yet. I have two reasons for writing my life story. I am writing it to help others who might be going through what I had had to go through in my life. If I can help and save someone the pain, it will make everything I have been through worth it. I also think because I starting transitioning at the age of nine I have a lot of years of life lessons that could be very helpful to younger and now older Trans just starting to transition.

My main reason for writing it is for myself. It is very therapeutic for me to relive my life as I write. It answers questions for me and allows me to see things now that I am older differently. Some things are still just too painful to write and others I want to write about them but it might do more harm than good. It is a very hard thing to write about your life, but I choose to focus on the therapeutic, and the positive benefits I get when writing a chapter.

What are some questions that you wish interviewers would ask you, but they never do?

That is a hard one. I almost live two lives. People never know which way to go with me. Do they focus on my adult life or my personal life? As well, most interviewers who have dealt with the other girls find they want to stay away from personal questions, they do not understand that I am OK with both sides of my life being exposed.

I have read some interviews were personal questions were asked and I could tell that the answers were bullshit. They either lied to get attention or they embellished to make themselves look better. That is not me. I might answer a personal question with too much honesty than most porn readers wish to know about me. They cannot deal with that much truth. They would not be able to look at me as a sexual object knowing my personal life or issues. But again, I do not want to be fake, or play the role that works for others. I am me, I am a very complicated person, but at least I am a sexy one. 🙂

tj3What would you like to film if money was no matter? Would it be a big budget film, documentary, or maybe an avant garde, experimental scene? Would it be pornographic at all?

All of the above. I love to try new things and experience new adventures. This will sound bad, but I film what I want to film because I enjoy it. I will never do something I do not enjoy–money or no money. I have money. I have been in this business since 1998 so I better have a nest egg. I am the type of person money has never meant anything to me and it never will. I will do scenes for free because I just want to experience it. Some may judge me because of this, but at least I have the memory.

If you look at my Youtube channel it really shows my personality. I do a cooking show, a vlog, a first time show where I interview people about their first time having sex, just me driving around, crazy Trans adventure videos of me cruising for cock, music videos with my best friend Corey. I do it all and I made no money off of any of it; it cost me money, but I loved every second of it and I plan to do lots more.

People focus on money and limits way too much–as well as what other people think. I live for me and do what makes me happy. Do I like when people compliment my work on any level? Of course I do. But that is not why I do it and it should never be why anyone does anything in life.

I’ve read that you are a gamer, and especially enjoy Massively Multiplayer Online games. What are your favorite games, and when did you start playing?

I started playing in 1998, Resident Evil was my first game. Then Tomb Raider was my second, Now I love playing Black Ops. I love to play on the computer or my XBox. But I have not played in a very long time. In fact, now I want to play, but cannot because I have to answer these stupid questions…lololol.

tj2What are your plans for this year? Is there anywhere we can look for your work?

I will have 1 or 2 more DVDs coming out this year; a crossdresser video where I dominate sissy sluts and use my strap-on to fuck them raw. Then Oral Sensation 2 is in the works. It will either come out late this year or early next year.

I also have my new website through Grooby, Club Tasha.XXX that will have tons of updated content and a place for my fans to watch me on webcam. Lots of new content that will be uploaded this summer will be just me and a camera finding guys online, in parking lots, or in the woods, and filming me having sex with them, total strangers. It will be

My social networks always have updates. Twitter, Instagram and Facebook all @TsTashaJones

How can your fans be good to you in your new ventures?

Support me by retweeting, commenting, or I don’t know…buying something..lol.

On your T-girls Radio show, you say that you want your conversations to sound like conversations with your girlfriends. Have you met many good friends in the adult industry, and how do you support each other?

To be honest I only have a handful of people I have in my personal life. Michelle Austin, Dicky Johnson, Eddie Wood, Dan & Kristal from Grooby, Tyra Scott and Christian XXX are the main people I would consider friends. I talk to lots of other people, but I would not consider them friends. This is from the adult world only.

2015-06-11_13-10-07Earlier this year your YouTube account was terminated, yet the content you had online followed YouTube’s user agreements. What type of recourse do you have when mainstream censorship prevents you from self-promotion? Have you seen this kind of censorship happening to other trans stars?

I am really disappointed with YouTube. I did nothing wrong yet they suspended my account for 6 months, not terminated. I tweeted them every day for a week. Wrote letters. Followed the worthless option they give you to fight the suspension, but it was a waste of time and they knew that. But they have to give us something. I begged my fans to support me because power is in numbers. But little did. Like I mentioned before, show something real—nothing, but if I attached a naked picture it would have went viral, but then that would have not supported my cause.

This is common with sites like that. We are adult stars, so we must be uploading something porn related. Yet, Mary Sue down the road can upload her ass shakin’ all over the place and that is OK? Females can do a cooking naked show with nothing but whipped cream covering their nips and pussy and that is OK? Yet mine, where I am covering everything, they had issues with. I submitted those videos in my email to them to show why I felt like they were discriminating against me, those videos are still up there today, yet my account is suspended?

I could write a book on the issues I have faced with some of the websites and apps. But it will not change a thing. Without the support from my fans I am just a nobody to them. Not worth their time. It is very sad, disappointing and frustrating.

Cosmopolitan Magazine writes excellent article about transgender

I just wanted to post a quick blurb about how proud I am of the human race today.  There have been many days (maybe even this morning) that I have wondered where the human race was going.  Actually it was this morning, when I read about a teen who killed herself because she was gang raped by 4 peers, who took a picture of it which went viral, but i digress….)

Then I came across this great article that Cosmopolitan Magazine wrote about Tom Gabel (punk rocker from About Me!) and their first year living as a woman, Laura Jane Grace.  I am so proud that mainstream media has taken the time to write and post an article about something that affects nearly 700,000 people.  I feel that mainstream media has shyed away from posting about the transgender community and it’s about time I see that they are including them!

Bravo Comso, and I hope that this is a true sign of humanity and where we are headed as a more accepting human race.

Spermy Shrines and Parents Who Do Porn – Link Love

Happy Humpday!  Welcome back to the midweek stretch.  Man, this week as been a doozie!  It’s been raining off and on here in Philly, and the lack of consistent sunshine is starting to take its toll in the form of exhaustion and a general feeling of life going in slow motion.  The weather better knock it off soon or I’m gonna need to go get one of those desktop light boxes to kick start my brain back into focus…  Alright, enough about my week and the gloom of the cloudy weather, let’s get to celebrating the fact that it is HUMP DAY!  We’ve gathered lots of links and love to get us through to Friday.  Who’s ready?  Let’s get to it!


– Whether this is an art instillation or a shrine to semen past, there is something so dynamic and interesting about this picture.  I love it.

–  Well, it finally happened.  After refusing offers for years, Nadya “Octomom” Suleman has shot her first porno scene.

– Scientists have discovered that instead of swimming, sperm actually do something closer to crawling through a woman’s body to reach their eggy destination.  Sure, that may be more “scientifically” correct, but honestly, it’s super creepy to picture, don’t you think?

– Fleshbot rounded up some of the hottest female orgasms that television has offered us.  Thanks Fleshbot!

Lead singer of the band Against Me! came out as transgender in a Rolling Stone article that posted last night.  After years of privately dealing with gender dysphoria, the singer who is transitioning to the name Laura Jane Grace, has gone public with her gender journey and soon plans to begin her medical transition.  We are in awe of her bravery and wish her the very best!  And so do these random Against Me! fans and supporters!

– Director Madison Young sat down with The Rumpus for an awesome interview… and Marie Claire Spain did an interview with director Erika Lust about creating porn and being a parent.

– And speaking of porn making mamas, check out this awesome documentary about porn and parenting that Jiz Lee wrote about – “Born Into Porn.”

Hope this gets you through til the weekend!

Unsexy Songs and European Cum Shots – Link Love Is Here!

Happy Humpday!  Welcome to the midweek stretch.  It’s that weirdo week for us here at HotMoviesforHer, where we are coming off the high of The Dinah and reaching a lull before shooting right up again to kick it into gear for the Feminist Porn Awards.  It’s that recovery/getting stuff ready period that’s extra exhausting, so I don’t have much energy to think of something dynamic to say here.  Well, that or it’s the brand new BRIGHT florescent light in our office bathroom that’s sucking the will to live right out of me.  Either way, let’s get to the Link Love!


– Check out pictures from Japan’s closed-down hihōkan sex museum.  Both creepy and awesome.

– Porno crossed into pop culture recently when Mike John Productions/Jules Jordan Video’s POV Pervert 8 found its way into the new comedy American Reunion.  You know, another sequel to the movie with Jason Biggs screwing a warm pastry. I guess things aren’t quite as PG as they once were, huh?

– Music and sexy times go together like peanut butter and jelly… unless, that is, you think it’s a good idea to mix peanut butter with mint jelly, which ends up to be an awful mess.  You know, kind of like trying to fuck to these 50 Worst Songs To Have Sex To.

– Wow.  I never thought I’d ever have to hear someone tell someone else that their vagina is not a substitute for a purse, but no, it looks like some ladies are shoving all sorts of random crap up their pussies.

– Speaking of putting less-than-desirable stuff inside your bits, check out Dangerous Lilly’s flame test silicone experimenting.  Quite enlightening!

– Also enlightening – this awesome list of examples of cisgender privilege.  If you don’t know what cisgender means, definitely take a look and learn something new and important about how to make the world a better and easier place for trans and gender-nonconforming folks everywhere.

– Sometimes porn stars go out to dinner… and sometimes they are the cutest while they do it.  Just look at Kimberly Kane in this gallery of dinner with porn stars.

– And lastly, awesomely vulgar condom ads from Europe.  Love it!

Hope this gets you through til the weekend!

TS Seduction #7 Featuring Mistress Soleli and Dietrich

One of the things I love about my life is that all of the parts of it randomly intersect when I least expect it.  I was out the other night and I met a friend of friends that was talking about how she just retired from the porn industry.  We talked for a few minutes and she told me that she had shot a bunch for Kink.com, so of course I took to HM4Her to check out that awesomeness, and luckily, we happen to have one of her movies!  Hello Mistress Soleli!

I’ll be the first person to say that I don’t review movies with trans women all that often, unless they are queer movies, made by queers for queers.  Most of the movies we have featuring trans women are made for hetero dudes and I find them kind of fucked up and exploitative.  I’m not saying that you shouldn’t enjoy them if you do – I’m just letting you know my own feelings on the matter.  And while Kink.com doesn’t necessarily identify as a queer studio, a bunch of queer stars shoot for them, and I trust that they treat performers well.  Hell, from what I can tell, the Armory that they run out in SF is pretty much heaven.  Anyway, that’s my initial rant – now let’s get to the sexin!

Kink’s TS Seduction (or Transsexual Seduction) has a newcomer in its midst. Dietrich has not only never been on film before, he’s never had sex with a trans woman and never been penetrated by a cock (in his mouth or his butt).  Boy, oh boy is he in for a good time!  He calls Mistress Soleli to come over, and come over she does, wearing a tight mini-dress with heels – a combo that offers up her long legs for days.  She starts out sweetly with Dietrich, kissing him, having him suck on her nipples, and giving him a blowjob. It seems that Dietrich doesn’t know that Mistress Soleli is trans, so is surprised when she takes her cock out. It only take a second for Dietrich to put her cock in his mouth and go right to town on it.  As he sucks, Mistress Soleli  gets a little rougher, slapping him in the face and pushing him head down on her cock.  She just gets hotter and hotter the meaner she gets. Yum.

Dietrich continues to suck her cock for a long time, all the while stroking his own cock.  She handcuffs him and beats him a little with a short flogger before gloving up and sticking her fingers up his ass to warm him up.  It’s so much fun watching her pop is ass cherry.  Whether or not he really is an anal virgin, it’s definitely believable that’s the case here.  Before long her hard cock is thrusting into his tight asshole.  I love the upward angle the camera person shoots from, allowing us to see Mistress Soleli’s perfectly painted French manicure cup her balls.

Dietrich can’t seem to get enough, whimpering and moaning the whole time his ass is filled.  His dick is as stiff as his little mohawk.  It’s sweet and a little innocent how he keeps saying ‘yes Mistress’ with his voice cracking a little.  What can I say, I’m a sucker for when porno gets cute.

All-in-all, this is an awesome half-hour flick from Kink.com.  And Mistress Soleli, even though you are retired from porno, I am so glad I got to take a look at how amazing you were on screen.  Thank you!

Buck Angel’s Sexing The Trasman XXX – Revisited!

Yes, it is possible that you’ve read this review before.  J.D. wrote is back in September, but since this movie is nominated for Best Transsexual Release I wanted to repost it.  Buck Angel is a good friend of ours and I wanted to show him some love.  During my very first week here at HotMoviesForHer I was lucky enough to tag along for an interview.  J.D. did the talking, I just held the camera and sat there being star struck.  Still, it was a great experience – both educational and just effing awesome.  The review is posted below, but you should also check out the interview that I’m talking about.  Enjoy! Love, Ginger xoxoxo

Buck Angel Interview Part 1

Buck Angel Interview Part 2

Buck Angel Interview Part 3

When folks think of Buck Angel, I’m sure their first thoughts go to porn star – the man with a pussy. Me? My mind goes straight to educator and activist. Sure, I’ve seen Buck Angel in just about every sexy position I can imagine, but when I get to the crux of his latest work, it’s all about the education and activist. I’ll admit that this may be directly tied to originally watching the non-porno version of this video during Buck’s workshop of the same name, which I was lucky enough to attend when he made his way to Philly earlier this year, but still, Buck’s overwhelming care in bringing awareness to transgender male sexuality makes him so much more than just a porn star (and filmmaker) in my eyes.

Buck Angel’s Sexing The Transman XXX is a collection of interviews and masturbation scenes featuring four different transmen (as well as one last scene that stars Buck and Fallen fucking, sans interview). Each dude talks a little bit about how and who he likes to have sex with, and how his sexuality has changed since starting hormones (T, or Testosterone). During the interviews, Buck also touches on language – what these guys like their genitals called – and gets a little bit of history around their transition and identity, all before having them strip down and get to jerkin’!

I really enjoyed watching all the different ways that each performer got off, as well as the variety in their bits. I think it’s so exciting when folks can talk about all the ways they like to be stimulated, especially if they have already been pigeon-holed by society (such as people assuming that just because a transdude doesn’t identify as a woman the he doesn’t want to be penetrated “vaginally”). It’s also so important for other transguys to see people like them enjoying their sexuality. Never underestimate the empowerment of recognition and the indirect permission that comes along with it. Also, it’s fucking hot watching these four dudes get off. A boner both in my pants and in my brain – my favorite kind.

The one thing that made me a little sad about this documentary is that it only featured transmen that are taking hormones and have had chest surgery. There are so many varied transmasculine experiences that it seems a shame to focus only on guys that fit into this specific category. I assume that Buck Angel made that decision for a reason, so I’m not going to get all frustrated about it, but I definitely wanted to note that these are only the experiences that fit into those boxes.

If you are hot for transmen, curious about the intersections of testosterone and sexually, or both… or just really like watching hot people get off, this is a fabulous addition to the Buck Angel Entertainment library! Thanks Buck!

Private Silicone Packer

A while back, HM4Her delved into the fabulous world of adding gender expression items into our pool of general sex toy to review. Yes, we’ve been reviewing dildos and harnesses, which can also fall under the gender expression umbrella, for a long time, but in those instances, they’ve been used during actual sexual activity.  The gender expression ‘toys’ that we are highlighting are something a little different.  Before I get into the review, let me first explain a bit about gender expression – a refresher for the folks that read our other gender expression toy posts.

Recap:  When it comes to breaking down sex, gender and orientation, I’ve always found this nerdy tech analogy to be helpful.   Sex = Hardware; Gender = Software; Orientation = Networking.  Basically, Sex is the biological body – the physical; Gender is how you feel internally and how you present yourself to the world; and Orientation is the ways you interact with others.  In many instances Sex and Gender match up (known as being “cis-gendered”), and in other cases, they do not.  When someone’s body/sex assigned at birth do not match up to their gender identity (how they feel inside), some folks decide to live as the gender they identify as, which is called transitioning, or transgendered.  And when folks are transitioning, sometimes they use items that help them express the gender that they identify – hence the name gender expression.  Now, there is definitely more to it that just that, but as far as the basics go, that should work.

Onward to the review!  Up today is the Private Silicone Packer, a packer designed by the awesome folks at Good Vibrations.  Ok, time for another quick recap: a packer is a soft dildo that some trans guys (or other gender variant folks) wear to further feel and outwardly express masculinity – and create a handsome bulge in the front of their pants.  While packers are not hard penises or acceptable for sexual penetration, they are usually made of the same quality materials that traditional dildos are made from.

We had an amazing trans guy come in to help out on this one, generously trying this packer out and giving us all the info on the pros and cons of this particular bulge in his briefs.  To start off, let’s take a gander at the stats, shall we? The Private Silicone Packer is a 5” x 1 3/8” ‘soft’ dildo sporting realistic (I wanted to type realisdick SO badly!) phallic features and a ball sack.  I say soft in quotes, because there really isn’t anything too ‘soft’ about this guy – in fact, he’s pretty firm.

The rigid silicone means that there is no repositioning or dressing to one side (aka. the side of your pants your cock hangs down) – the Private Packer is smack dab in the middle of your pants, parallel to your zipper.  And it’s not going anywhere.  While our reviewer really enjoyed the way this looked while wearing pants, he wasn’t so keen on how the Private presented in just underwear.   While some folks may love it, for him, the bulge was too big and sat unnaturally in his boxers.

A plus of this packer is the defined lip at the base.  It keeps the Private held tightly in a packing jock or strap (or harness) and helps to keep it from wandering, as packers sometimes tend to do.  Our tester said he felt very secure that the Private wasn’t going to shift or fall out while he was wearing it.  The downside of the defined lip is that the whole back of the packer is just as rigid as the shaft, and our reviewer said that while he was wearing it, he could feel it the whole time, reminding him that he was packing.  He said that some people may be totally turned on by feeling their packer at all times, but it just didn’t work for him.

When asked to sum it up, our friend shrugged and said that while it’s a decent packer, he is still on the prowl for something that feels more realistic and meets more of his own needs.  Well, there you have it.

I really enjoyed watching all the different ways that each performer got off, as well as the variety in their bits.  I think it’s so exciting when folks can talk about all the ways they like to be stimulated, especially if they have already been pigeon-holed by society (such as people assuming that just because a transdude doesn’t identify as a woman the he doesn’t want to be penetrated “vaginally”).  It’s also so important for other transguys to see people like them enjoying their sexuality.  Never underestimate the empowerment of recognition and the indirect permission that comes along with it. Also, it’s fucking hot watching these four dudes get off.  A boner both in my pants and in my brain – my favorite kind.

The one thing that made me a little sad about this documentary is that it only featured transmen that are taking hormones and have had chest surgery.  There are so many varied transmasculine experiences that it seems a shame to focus only on guys that fit into this specific category.  I assume that Buck Angel made that decision for a reason, so I’m not going to get all frustrated about it, but I definitely wanted to note that these are only the experiences that fit into those boxes.

If you are hot for transmen, curious about the intersections of testosterone and sexually, or both… or just really like watching hot people get off, this is a fabulous addition to the Buck Angel Entertainment library!  Thanks Buck!

A few weeks back, HM4Her delved into the wonderful world of adding gender expression items into our pool of general sex toy to review.  While we’ve been reviewing dildos and harness, which can also fall under the gender expression umbrella, for a while, but in those instances, they’ve been used during actual sexual activity.  The gender expression ‘toys’ that we are highlighting are something a little different.  Before I get into the review, let me first explain a bit about gender expression – a refresher for the folks that read our compression shirt review.

Recap:  When it comes to breaking down sex, gender and orientation, I’ve always found this nerdy tech analogy to be helpful.   Sex = Hardware; Gender = Software; Orientation = Networking.  Basically, Sex is the biological body – the physical; Gender is how you feel internally and how you present yourself to the world; and Orientation is the ways you interact with others.  In many instances Sex and Gender match up (known as being “cis-gendered”), and in other cases, they do not.  When someone’s body/sex assigned at birth do not match up to their gender identity (how they feel inside), some folks decide to live as the gender they identify as, which is called transitioning, or transgendered.  And when folks are transitioning, sometimes they use items that help them express the gender that they identify – hence the name gender expression.

Today we are reviewing a special kind of dildo called a packer.  A packer is a soft dildo that some trans guys (or other gender variant folks) wear to further feel and outwardly express masculinity – and create a handsome bulge in the front of their pants.  While packers are not hard penises or acceptable for sexual penetration, they are usually made of the same quality materials that traditional dildos are made from.  This time we are reviewing Vixen Creations’ Mr. Right packer, a 4 ¼ by 1 ¼ Vixskin silicone dick, complete with a flat back and a pair of testicles.
