Transgender porn and the Caitlyn Jenner effect

QUEBEC — “Transgender porn quickly gaining in popularity,” reads the headline over an article on the CNBC site.

Does that surprise anybody?

The article points out that trans porn has always been popular, but with the publicity surrounding Caitlyn Jenner and the growing acceptance of transgender people, “it has grown into a full-fledged phenomenon.”

I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not. Personally, I don’t watch porn or click onto porn websites. But, in my experience on dating and hookup websites where there are lots of trans people as well has hetero men, I learned a few things about men who are attracted to transwomen.

Being the reporter type that I am, I conducted interview-style chats with many of these guys — sometimes in open forums in which many people participated — and they all said they would not be interested in transwomen after they became “chicks without dicks,” i.e. after they had sexual reassignment surgery.

Why?

Because post-op transwomen would be too much like the other 4 billion women on the planet. Which, of course, is what transwomen who have SRS want, yes? The idea is to reconcile body and mind and blend in with all the other women.

And the majority of men I interviewed who get their fetish kicks from watching trans porn — or illicitly participating in it — wouldn’t openly date a transwoman, whether she has had GRS or not.

And that is a subject for another post, I suppose. In brief, the vast majority of hetero men won’t date transwomen. But there are some who will. I doubt that the media’s almost insane coverage of every breath Caitlyn Jenner takes will encourage more men to openly date transwomen. In fact, I think the coverage may do the opposite, even if it does inadvertently boost sales of trans porn.

One thought on “Transgender porn and the Caitlyn Jenner effect”

  1. Transsexual porn is huge and will probably always be huge, I’m not calling it transgender porn because it’s not It its either called tranny porn, shemale porn or transsexual porn. And I don’t think Catilyn Jenner had anything to do with it to be honest.
