This is the best harness EVER! I ordered the size A (Belt 20”-50” hips) in black from Amazon.com and am very satisfied with my purchase. I had heard a lot great things about this harness from lesbians and other trans guys, so I was eager to see what all the talk was about. Boy does this live up to its reputation. Putting it on for the first time was slightly confusing, but once I figured out how to adjust the velcro and thigh straps I was good to go. There’s not a lot of buckles or straps, so this harness can be worn by itself or under boxers. I instantly noticed that it fit close to my body, was extremely comfortable and I found it easy to forget it was actually there. (The jock strap style also made my ass look even more awesome.)

The cock ring stretches to about 2”, anything bigger will be difficult to fit through. I liked the pouch design, its great for balls as well as holding bullets for stimulation for both partners. The position of everything makes it very easy to feel every moment and the experience was very realistic.

Overall this is a great harness, especially for trans guys. I would recommend it to anyone whose looking for an exceptional harness. I guarantee you’ll feel sexy while wearing it, as well as have an amazing time.

Rating: 5/5

Harkins Theatres (Employer)

i spoke with the general manager about my being trans

my intention was simply to discuss bathroom cleaning and usage. she told me right off the bat that she had been meaning to discuss my being transgender with me and wanted to ask me what i am comfortable with as far as the schedule goes.

she told me she had already spoken with corporate about the situation since she has never hired a trans-person before, and she wanted to treat me properly. she always referred to me as he. i thought i was going to have to over explain that bathrooms are a sticky situation for me since my anatomy would dictate that i go to the womyn’s room (in a society that conflates sex and gender) but my appearance and identity would make womyn possibly feel as though i am a predator in their space, which is the last thing i want especially since i’m a feminist. i didn’t have to explain anything. she was like you live as a male, you dress as a male, you’re male. you use/clean the men’s room.

she said she may have to manually put my name into the schedule every week since it’s a computer system that automatically puts your legal name in but that it wasn’t a problem. she also said that if anything happened in the men’s room (like me being assaulted or something) that i would just not have to do restroom checks anymore. she also said that she’d like to avoid that to keep my privacy intact.

my rating for harkins, especially since this particular location has never had to deal with trans-persons before, is 5/5.



Realistic Cock

I purchased a new hard packer last week from PinkCherry.com . I got the Realistic Cock in caramel; I was kinda skeptical about the color matching my own skin tone, but to my surprise it looks quite natural next to my thighs. I recommend any brothers of color who are in need of a more realistic hard packer to check out their selection. It comes in chocolate (for darker skinned folks) and caramel (for medium to light skinned folks). Besides looks, it feels natural too and its completely harness compatible—with or without the suction cup.

I couldn’t be more satisfied, it’s great to look down and see a dick that looks like it belongs to me. I’m a lot more confident in just whipping it out or not immediately switching back to soft packing after sex.

When asked, he gave the packer a 5/5 rating.



MTF Bottom Surgery with Dr. McGinn

Some background info. about the surgery itself:
Penis head tissue makes the clitoris. Shaft tissue and scrotal tissue makes the tunnel. Most of the erectile tissue is gone though some peoeple can still experience a tiny bit of stiffening.

Sensation is nearly 100% based on how sensitive you are down there now. I was put on a medically mandated masturbation regimine to increase sensitivity prior to surgery. My girlfriend’s is wonderfully sensitive and I love her orgasms. Depth is based on what material you have to work with. I was told I have plenty and I was not some kind of Mr. Universe down there. The gf’s is deep enough to have fun but not so much as to be a bottomless pit. You have to maintain depth with dilation or it goes away. You don’t dilate for three days cuz you’re filled with packing like I am right now. Think how brand new shoes come to maintain their shape. You start out doing it twice a day, then once, then every other… Eventually it’s not to life impeding. You can trade dilation for penetrative sex. Aww yeah.

Urinary tract infections are so common you’re told you can expect one. Vaginal anal fistulas are so rare that my surgeon has never seen one in her (tens of?) thousands of procedures.

After the surgery:

No pain before you go under. They give you anesthesia through an IV so you just drift off into sleepy land. My surgeon Dr. Mcginn played Hedwig for me as I went under after seeing my tattoo. Owns.

I woke up to soreness and confusion. Asked right away if everything went ok. They told me the procedure didn’t have so much as a typo in paperwork in terms of problems. It steadily got worse, then they put me on morphine so now the physical pain is just a light annoyance.

Emotional pain through the roof. They told me I’m kinda having something like post partem I guess? Everything makes me cry. Mostly my mom who’s here taking care of me and sleeping in the hospital room with me. So far she set me off balling helping me put my piercings back in despite admitting she thinks they’re really unnattractive. And because she called my girlfriend to let her know I’m ok before anyone else. And because she gave me a teddy bear with a flannel heart.

Yesterday it was no moving. Today I can have the bed propped up 30%. Tomorrow I can sit up. Then I can stand. Next week they’ll let me walk to the bathroom and back. Not much mobility at all. I did check in with the surgeon today; they were able to get great depth, didn’t need any extra tissue from other parts of me.

Day 3 with vagina. I itch all over. The soreness is pretty steady but tolerable. My mom is hanging out in my private hospital room, watching True Blood and wishing our respective SOs were here. I should be allowed to sit up more today. I keep wanting to ask for a spiro with my morning pills and have to be reminded I no longer produce T.

Vagina Update: Day three with my new hole. They had me stand for the first time today. Which I was able to do, and then promptly blacked out. We’ll try again tomorrow. I’m off morphine, more coherent, and doing much better. I can’t wait for my first shower with the new gear, and getting to go to the bathroom without a catheter.

I seen to have run into an issue with misgendering here. The receptionists who checked me in on Monday, and the nurses again today, are using male pronouns for me. Now, my legal name and gender, on every inch of paperwork, is Stephanie and female. And I’m clearly here because I had vaginoplasty. So I’m at a loss. I’ve made one complaint already and sounds like I’ll have to make another. I haven’t heard male pronouns for me in months so this is really jarring considering the circumstance.

Vagina [day 5]

I’m leaving the hospital tonight; going to a hotel to chill and check in every couple days as outpatient. Big step!!

I walked more yesterday. First to the end of the room, then out into the hall. Going to try to do more today; maybe see if I can scope out the other tranny here. Here’s hoping she’s not a leatherface.

Pain is way down, discomfort from being immobile is up. My vagina’s pretty sensitive. I ended up getting some hints of arousal last night and it was a trip. Engorged with blood, all tingly inside, swollen and puffy feeling but not stiff. Fun stuff.

I still have packing inside, and bandaging over my clit. The catheter stays until some time next week.

Quick update: catheter out, packing out, dilating is a go. Follow up appointment today gave me info on my depth: plenty! And nerve response: full! Clitoral especially Feeling much healthier, super happy to know I got all the promised features, and can’t wait to get back on estrogen.

Stephanie rated Dr. McGinn a 6 out of 5, but this will be classified as 5/5 for the sake of organization. Also, the hospital is Lower Bucks Hospital and is not associated with Dr. McGinn’s private practice. It was the employees of the hospital itself that disregarded Stephanie’s true gender.

Lastly, Stephanie gave me permission to post this here, which was originally posted in the form of a thread on Something Awful’s Transgender megathread.
