Arayat Escapade

Originally posted 2016-03-07 10:32:53.

A couple of weeks ago I went to Mount Arayat National Park in Pampanga, here in the Philippines.

I’d been invited by some friends to spend the day, with a walk in the mountain park in the morning followed by socialising later. This meant first taking a bus to San Fernando and then another, local bus. We wanted to be there for sunrise, which is why I found myself sitting in a taxi at 3.30 am, hurtling through Quezon City at speeds in excess of 100 kph. It was a good adrenaline rush to start the day.

Sex with a ladyboy – is it gay?

Originally posted 2017-03-21 21:33:39.

Okay. So, maybe you just woke up after a wild night, looked over the bed and there beside you, happily dreaming away without a care in the world and looking as though butter wouldn’t melt, was a ladyboy; or, if you prefer, a transsexual. Possibly you’re just considering doing this. Maybe you did already,  liked it, and are wondering about yourself. Maybe you’re in a relationship with a ladyboy and still confused. So I’m going to answer the question, ‘Am I gay for having sex with a ladyboy’?

This is a pretty popular question, as you’ll see from a casual Google of the terms, but almost none of the answers make any sense. They’re either written by people who have no experience of transsexuals, ladyboys, bonecas — call them as you will, they’re all the same — or they’re written by people with a hidden agenda, trying to promote a particular political point of view.

Baklas and Beer in the Afternoon: A Tale of Manila

I have just been to the Bureau of Immigration Visa Extension Office in Makati. I have to do this once every two months, for the economy of the Philippines.

My papers are in and my money has been paid, but for unknown reasons, they’re not handing the passports with the new visas out yet. I have plans for the afternoon so will have to come back on Tuesday. I sigh and decide to get a beer and some food. I had no plans, then, to meet baklas.

Baklas, to let you know, are the local ersion of the ubiquitous ladyboy, the transwomen found all over southeast Asia, under different names. They are highly feminised males who live as women and seek straight men for partners. They are often as beautiful as natal women — or more so.

I head for Market! Market! in Taguig. It’s my favourite mall in Manila by far, partly because half of it is actually outside. Unlike some malls, there are plenty of beer-bars and small restos too, serving a myriad array of meals in price bands to suit any bakla’s pocket, as they say. So I indulge in a taxi — 105 pesos — and, once I’m there, head for the bars at the back, near the van depot. I know from experience that these are good and cheap and so, attract locals — including baklas.

Bakla: explaining the transwoman of the Philippines

All humans, with the exceptions of a tiny minority with disorders of sexual development (DSDs) or Intersex, are either male or female. So there are two sexes.

We are not tilapia, frogs or molluscs, and these sexes are fixed for life. Sex can never be changed. The nonsense that biological sex has no basis in reality and can be changed from male to female is just that, nonsense. It derives from Post-Modernism; a rotten, toxic ideology. But that means we must explain the phenomenon of transsexualism, and to do that we’ll focus on the form found in Luzon in the Philippines, the bakla.

The explanation hinges on the critical difference between sex and gender. These are not the same.

Women: Adults of feminine gender.

I’ve been running a feature on my You Tube Community page called Women: Adults of feminine gender.. Which is of course true but the twist is that all the women I feature have XY chromosomes. I thought I’d feature some of them here since not everyone goes on my YT channel (the link is above in the menu bar.)

I defy anyone to look at these beautiful women and say that they are anything else. They’re women. They look like women, they act like women. And they are more beautiful and more feminine, with a better attitude than most Western women today. It’s nice to know that there are still real women out there, those who love men and know that they are intrinsically different from them.

This series was prompted by the rise of TERF/GC intolerance and bigotry in the UK. I’d like to know how anyone could possibly be better off living as a fucked-up, miserable gay, suffering emotional, sexual and physical abuse, when they could be happy, fulfilled women like these. Someone out there is lying and it ain’t me.

Bakla to Kabaklaan: the way of beauty

Transwomen in the Philippines are classified locally as ‘gay’. The specific word used might be ‘bakla’, ‘beki’, ‘bayot’, ‘bading’ or any one of several others, depending on location and dialect.

Here, ‘gay’ does not mean what it does in the West. It means you are male but not a man; that you have ‘green blood’. You are an unmasculine male. In Luzon, the most popular local term is ‘bakla’. Their lifestyle is called ‘kabaklaan’.

A bakla starts on the life of kabaklaan when she is young, perhaps five or six. This type is called the ‘batang bakla’. Girls who ‘come out’ in later adolescence are known as ‘late bloomers’.

Brazilian Transsexuals: travesti sex workers

Brazilian Transsexuals

Originally posted 2022-03-25 15:17:16.

Brazilian transsexuals, males who present as often highly desirable women, have become a well-known phenomenon. They accept themselves as submissive homosexuals and call themselves travestis.

Their cultural understanding of the nature of homosexual sex means that they have thus rescinded, effectively, their status as ‘men’. They have become part of an intermediary class of ‘not-men’ who are enabled to leave go their  masculine identities to adopt feminine ones. However the majority believe that they can never be complete women, and that those Brazilian transsexuals who think they can, are suffering from delusions to the point of having a screw loose.

I wrote this piece while I was researching The Warm Pink Jelly Express Train, which is about the lives of Brazilian Transsexuals. You can get the paperback at any good bookshop or via Amazon in your area: https://www.amazon.com/Warm-Pink-Jelly-Express-Train/dp/0956500722   You can get the Kindle there too

How to make love to (more) ladyboys.

Originally posted 2022-03-25 08:21:53.

Here’s an awesome new video following up on the theme ‘How to make love to ladyboys’.

Making love with a pre-op ladyboy, or any other intact trans woman, requires the use of the rear entrance. This is delightful, to put it mildly, for the man penetrating it, but there are some complications and some precautions that should be taken with ladyboys.
