Every time I go to a porn store there is like a huge wall of it! Obviously, the porn industry is an industry of supply and demand, so this is saying something about the demand. But seriously, what is going on? It can't simply be for the novelty value.
Is it a way of watching cock-on-cock action with out admitting you are watching gay porn? Are some men so conflicted about how they feel about cock (because let's face it, it's not chicks buying this stuff), that they need it with a gender-identified woman to make it okay? This is a similar issue many men have who like "forced bi" scenarios. They need the context of being "forced" into it, so that they can separate themselves from having to confront the possibility that they might not be all that straight. Because hey, if there's a woman in the room who is forcing you to do it for her own enjoyment, then you're not really gay, right? But you asked for it, but in the context of the role play, she is making you, but you originally asked for it, but, but...!!! (Unless your mistress really does force you to do it and you don't ask- that's different)
Isn't it possible that you can love cock and want to watch it explode bucketloads of cum all over an ass, and not be G-A-Y? Gayness is a culture, and I don't think wanting a big fatty in your mouth qualifies you to belong to that culture. For instance, a client will ask me, "Does this make me gay?" I'm just like, "I don't know, does it?" Ultimately, you make that decision for yourself, and no one can make it for you. Why does it always have to be a black or white question anyway? Who even cares if you're gay or not? Isn't it just an umbrella term anyway? Sexuality is so multi-faceted, what is the use in trying to compartmentalize everything? How about, "I love women, but I also love cock." There should be a name for that, because it's ubiquitous, and perhaps isolating not to know that one could identify as such. Perhaps that is the real reason why tranny porn is so popular. There are many men who want femininity and also the added bonus of a long, luscious cock. One of my girlfriends who dates a FTM transgender person, said that she likes Him because you get the masculinity without the cock (and the asshole-ishness, but that's beside the point). Could it be possible that people who love trannies are simply the inverse of that?
In theory, I should find tranny porn pretty hot. However, when I watch it, I always find myself trying to look for the person (or the man) underneath the makeup. I'm not sure why I do that, but inevitably, whenever I can see traces of the biological man peeping through (whether in the thickness of his neck, his jawline, the defined muscularity of his physique) I can't get turned on by it. This is nothing against trannies, but possibly my own curiosity about the whole pathos behind gender transformation. This, of course, says more about my own preconceived notions about that "pathos"- whether it even exists- but I can't help projecting an internal struggle onto them, and perhaps that prevents me from being able to objectify them, and hence, jerk off. I watched some vanilla porn the other day, where a biological girl was sucking cock. It didn't do much for me either, perhaps for similar reasons. Or maybe because vanilla stuff is boring as hell.
I would like to hear from people who love tranny porn. Do you simply find trannies aesthetically pleasing? What other theories do people have? What literature has been written on it, if any?
