A friend just passed this along to me, and it sounds like an EXCELLENT project. Please take a look and forward to anyone you think may be interested:
Sex with trans women can be a challenging experience for new partners, and even for the trans woman in question. We learn things about our bodies as we go because there’s no instruction manual, no guidebook for how we’re supposed to be fucking. All sorts of assumptions about
our bodies and how we have sex or fuck can keep potential lovers wary or from expressing the interest they feel for us. And we don’t all fuck the same way, so even if someone has been with a few of us their experiences might be totally different and not helpful to the next,
and the next.
It can be hard to name our bodies in ways that we feel are authentic but that also feel sexy. It can be difficult to claim our bodies and our pleasure for ourselves when we might not feel as much ownership for them as we would like. Sometimes, at least for me, I can feel very frustrated trying to explain myself through metaphor, analogy,
and comparison because there simply is no vocabulary to explain my body the way I want to explain it.
I want to start a serious conversation between trans women to share information about how we’re fucking, no matter *who* we’re fucking or what fucking means to us. I’m not naive enough to believe that this hasn’t been attempted before, but I am humble enough to admit that I
haven’t been successful at finding those previous efforts. I’m also smart enough to know that I can’t be the only one out there who feels like she is routinely reinventing what should have, and probably was, already discovered, documented, and discussed. Old information is *definitely* welcome; this is about sharing information, not
(necessarily) sharing new information.
This is a preliminary call for submissions for a pamphlet or zine, to be distributed as widely as possible in every and any format available, with very humble goals: to start a conversation about how trans women are having sex. This is meant to be a conversation that includes trans women and our lovers. It can be as specific as you like, and it is NOT a problem if you want to contribute anonymously.
All sorts of contributions would be and will be valued, including drawings and schematics (!!!), sex stories about good sex, essays, “what to do” and “what not to do” lists, safer sex guides, … anything really, but with the acknowledgment that while a lot of us will learn something about ourselves or find some really helpful advice, there’s no *one way* to fuck a trans lady, any more than
there’s any *one way* to fuck anyone else. Our goal should be to learn as *many ways* to have good sex as possible.
The first issue of this zine will be distributed electronically and in print by request; submissions are due *really really soon*: July 21st for the first issue, which will be released August 1st, no matter how much or how little content has been collected.
