I just want to say that I have gotten an amazing number of positive responses and thank you's from Heterosexual &
Bi-sexual men and many Couples (male+female, male+t-girl, female+t-girl, lesbian and gay) through phone calls, emails
or in person, about how much this 'Info Page’ and the article based on it in "The Canadian", have informed and helped
them understand T-Girls as well as realize that there are MANY other men & women who are attracted and curious...
SO THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT FEEDBACK & POSITIVE COMMENTS!!
The article that was
written for "The Canadian" focused mainly on defining the VariousT-Girl Terms, whereas the following breakdown is primarily Statistical Info about Male
INTERESTING FACTS & FIGURES
Although there is still a degree of secretiveness about it, the fact is that IN TODAY'S WORLD MORE THAN HALF
OF STRAIGHT MEN HAVE AN ATTRACTION OR CURIOUSITY ABOUT T-GIRLS.
• The number of men who admit to a preference
for T-girls has grown steadily and significantly in the last 10 years due mostly to increased media exposure on such shows
as "Jerry Springer" and "Jennie Jones" as well as the introduction of the internet which allowed for a huge amount of information
to be available on the subject. People became more aware of the subject and thus the number of those curious began to increase.
In fact, during the years going back from about
1998 until 2007, the percentage of Straight Males 18+ with an interest in, or a past experience with a T-Girl went from being
the minority (30-40%) to the very large majority (70% +)- Straight men just seem to be fascinated with ultra feminine T-Girls
and that ‘something extra’ they offer.
• About 99% of the men who are interested
in T-girls are heterosexual or bi-curious, NOT gay. THIS IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST MISPERCEPTION THAT STRAIGHT GUYS HAVE.
These men are looking for feminine qualities
combined with something 'extra' and are NOT attracted to masculine men in any way. It is perhaps moreso, the physical dichotomy
that is driving the attraction. If they were truly gay, they would be pursuing a male with masculine features, not a T-Girl.
I cannot stress this point enough since
so many guys who are into T-girls mistakenly and ashamedly believe that they may be gay. Not so, they may consider themselves
bi-sexual but by general definition, definitely NOT gay.
• There are 2 general types of bi-sexual
men. Some bi-men are attracted to females for their femininity and males for their masculinity. They can appreciate both genders.
The other type of bi-men are attracted to females, as well as, feminine males (or T-girls). They tend to appreciate the feminine
gender more. Both types of men identify themselves as being heterosexual with bi-curiousity, but neither can be considered
GAY, because their attraction is NOT SOLELY to masculine males. Men who are attracted strictly to masculinity usually identify
themsleves as being GAY. This explains why so many gay men find straight men very attractive, because of the strong masculinity
• Most T-girls identify themselves as
being female, but most effeminate gay men still identify themselves as being male. So gay men like MEN (whether masculine
or effeminate), while straight and bi-men can like WOMEN & T-GIRLS or MEN but NOT necessarily all 3. This may all be a
bit confusing but it is a key difference. Straight and bi men are attracted to femininity and, since T-girls purposely heighten
their femininity with makeup, clothing and their general attitude, they would be naturally more attractive to heterosexual
men, NOT gay men.
• Here's another way to put it:
If a straight man were to compare a very
feminine T-girl (with long hair, wearing sexy clothes and heels ) to a very masculine woman (with short hair, wearing overalls
and a man’s shirt), he would MOST likely pick the T-girl as the more attractive because of the femininity factor.
Despite the fact that a woman is female,
it does not make her feminine and just because a T-girl is biologically male does not make her masculine.
In fact, many straight men claim that some
very passable T-girl girls are MORE attractive than some biological women precisely because:
- Heterosexual Men are Attracted to Femininity
- The attraction is both Psychological and Physical
- Increased Femininity is More Physically Attractive to Straight Men
- T-Girls Heighten their Femininity with Clothes, Body Language, etc., therefore:
Heightened Femininity = Heightened
Sexuality = More Physically Attractive to Heterosexual Men
• There seem to be 2 stages that many
(but not all) straight men go through at different times in their lives when they are sexually curious/open to being with
a TV, TS or male, the younger age being at the onset of puberty when most boys ‘mess’ around with their male peers
(about 70% did when they were younger). The older age being around middle age or mid to late 40s or 50s when many men may
become interested in exploring various fetishes, including shemales or kink.
• Despite the positive progression that
T-girls have had recently, it is disturbing to also note that many of the most outwardly 'phobic' individuals, are in fact,
themselves closet shemale lovers or curious about it and feel guilty. As a result, they will portray themselves as anti-trans
or homophobic when in public and amongst friends in order to avoid the truth being known about them. THIS HYPOCRISY
NEEDS TO STOP!
• In the future, T-Girls will be considered
in the same way that inter-racial or May-December romances are, eventually becoming just another dating option for straight
PERSONALITY & STATUS
So who are these men that are attracted to
T-Girls? The fact is the range is so wide, its hard to categorize or pin down any one particular group or common trait, other
than they are male!!
• The average age range for the majority
of men is 25-45, but there are also many who are 18-24 and others who are older than 45.
• The majority of men, about 60% are
single. Another 20% are married and about 30% have a significant partner, but only a very small number of these guys are open
with their partners about their preference.
• About 10% are open or have joked with
their close male friends about their preference. Some are even shocked to discover that one or more of their friends are into
T-Girls as well. Some have even dated the same T-girl (at different times), sometimes without knowing it at the time!!
• Most of the men who are attached claim
that their partners are not as sexually open or adventurous as they would like and they find that frustrating, which is one
of the reasons why they seek out sexual pleasure elsewhere. The other obvious main reason is that their partners do
not have the right 'equipment'.
•For the most part, it seems that men
who are interested in T-Girls are of average and above-average intelligence, attractive, educated, open-minded individuals
who are comfortable enough with their own masculinity to try something exciting and different. Also, the majority (80%) try
it at least once more after their first time and continue to lead a normal, heterosexual life without a problem. It also seems
that once a man tries it for his first time, he is usually relieved to have tried it, and most will try it again.
• Another interesting thing to note is
that some VERY attractive straight men who have many opportunities with women, become bored or feel unchallenged by these
biological females. Being with a T-Girl offers a bit of mystique, adventure and excitement.
• There is also the reversal-of- power
factor. Most dominant guys who usually take charge or have some degree of power/control in their everyday lives (at work,
in a relationship, etc) enjoy giving all that up and being in someone else's hands by being submissive to a T-Girl in private.
• By profession, there is a huge number
of Blue Collar Workers (about 30%) in Construction (Trade Workers & Contractors) as well as about 30% in the Business
Sector (Investment Banking/Stock Brokerage, Business/Financial Consulting).
• Another 30% are mostly in : Tech
Industry, Health/Fitness, Real Estate, Automotive (Sales & Manufacturing), Restaurants, Film and Music Professionals,
Medical Professionals & Lawyers.
The remaining 10% is mostly unique occupations.
• There is a slight majority of men,
overall, who are in high-ranking, white-collar jobs and the rest fall into the blue-collar category including specialty tradesmen.
• Some of the more unique and interesting
Acupuncturist, Airline Pilots, Army
Officer, Celebrity Canadian Musician, Cirque du Soleil Performer, Clown, Cruise Ship Performer, Doctor/Surgeon, Film
Sound Editor, Firefighter,
Fisherman, Helicopter Pilot, Hypnotherapist, Immigration
Officer, Judge, Lumberjack, Music Video Producer, Newscaster, Oil Rig Worker, Police Officer
(Fmr), Professioinal Football Player, Professional Boxer, Professional Hockey Player, Professor (University), Psychologist,
Referee, Reporter, Screenwriter, Tattoo
Artist, Teachers (all levels), Ultimate Fighter, Winter Olympic Gold & Silver Medalist & Zamboni Driver
This shows that straight men who are attracted
to T-Girls are from every walk of life, every level of society and from every age group. There is really no way to narrow
it down to any one specific group.
• In terms of ethnic breakdown, it is
important to note that certain groups are unaware or ignorant of the term 'shemale' and may mistake T-Girls for biological
females, in which case, they are not included in these breakdowns. Also, one must consider the fact that different individuals
attract different kinds of people and these numbers only reflect my experience. Another T-Girl may have completely different
• Caucasians top the list with roughly
90% (this may also be due to and reflect the overall population percentages), and also includes men of European (35%), British
(30%) and Latin (15%) descent.
• The remaining 10% of men can be broken
down into Middle Eastern (5%), East Indian, Native Indian, Black, Asian & Mixed (5%).
• Even though there are many different
Europeans, the order of frequency is somewhat consistent - 1: Italian, 2: Greek, 3: Portugese, 4: Polish, 5: French , 6: Russian
& Ukranian, 7: Hungarian, 8: German, 9: Swiss, 10: other Northern & Eastern European countries
Please note that this breakdown of Europeans
does not just include visitors from those countries but European-Canadians (who grew up in Canada) as well.
• Then there's Latin men who break down
into relative numbers for those from Europe & Spain (60%) and from South America and the Caribbean (40%).
• Toronto GTA and also Barrie, Kitchener,
London, Mississauga, Markham, Newmarket, Oakville, Parry Sound, Richmond Hill, Whitby. Other Canadian cities represented include:
Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver.
• There are also a significant number
from the states of California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York and Texas.
• Visitors from some other countries
include Argentina, Australia, Columbia, France, Germany, Hungary, Isreal, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain and Switzerland
• Most guys think of themselves as being
below average (which is considered about 6"). The largest was about 11", the smallest literally about 2" erect. About 60%
are cut or circumcised, 40% uncut.
• In terms of girth, most men are about
average, maybe 5" around at the base. But some guys are almost as thick as a beer bottle. Many also have large mushroom heads
and a tapered shaft.
• Most guys have average size balls -
about a nice handful with both. Younger guys (but not always) are usually not as low-hanging. A small percentage of guys (various
ages) are extremely low-hanging, although it would depend on how much one pulls them. A small minority have also tried shaving,
which makes them more sensitive to the touch.
• About 40% have fairly smooth bodies
with little or no body hair, while the other 55% have some or little body hair and about 5% have excessive body hair. Most
younger guys have their pubic and body hair shaved or trimmed while more middle-aged and older men do not (but should try).
Clean Shaven heads or very short hair also seem more popular with about 5% of guys with very short hair or completely shaved
(which can both be sexy depending on how its worn)
• About 20-30% have tattoos and about
5-10% have some type of piercing (body, face, nipple and/or cock).
• Many men find secretive cross dressing
very arousing and sometimes wear an article of female clothing underneath their regular clothes while out in public.
• Majority of men involved in high-powered
jobs really do enjoy being submissive.
• Many guys are into ‘partying’
while having fun (maybe 25%). Some enjoy alcohol or 'poppers' while the majority prefer 'party favours & refreshments'.
• The most popular fantasy is mutual
or one-way french (almost 90%), followed by giving or receiving greek (40%). A smaller number (25%) like BDSM which includes
bondage, leather, domination & discipline. Then there's a fair number (20%) who enjoy cross-dressing to some degree (it
could be wearing one piece of lingerie or a full transformation). Here are the rest in descending order: CBT, Forced French,
Body-worship, Golden showers, Bondage, Voyeurism and others.
Please note that some individuals are into
more than one fetish which is why the total % is greater than 100.
As an example of how these figures will differ
depending on the T-Girl, take the percentage for BDSM, which would, of course, be higher for a professional dominatrix, which
I do not consider myself to be, and much lower for a masseuse.
• Some of the more interesting fetish
preferences range from smoking and stilettos to watersports and crossdressing. See below for links to Fetish Definitions.
Also see ‘Introduction’ page of this site for a more detailed list.
• There are a large number of male/female couples, of many ages (usually 30-45), who are into being with a T-girl,
either watching or participating. In fact, even quite a few single heterosexual women are curious and interested in having
a one on one experience (which is not something that I am personally into, but there are some T-Girls who are...no offence
• Men are very sexual beings, and even
though many believe that their preference for T-girls puts them in the minority, it is actually the majority of average straight
males (70-80%) who have at least thought about being with a T-girl, but are afraid to say so. With the number of men who are
into this, it's not unusual for someone you work with, are friends with, or are related to, have a similar preference, but
not be open about it because of societal perceptions.
• As long as partners are consenting,
and safe sex is practised, fetishes are very healthy, completely normal and some, such as the desire to be with T-girls, are
• Just remember this:
IT IS BETTER TO TRY SOMETHING ONCE,
RATHER THAN HAVE LIFELONG REGRETS, WONDERING WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN...
WE ONLY LIVE ONCE !!!
