How Popular is Ladyboy Porn?

I have met lots of Thai ladyboys over the years who have done porn. A few have regretted it despite them being hookers because of the visibility and the chance that their family may see it. That seems unlikely but once something is on film, it’s there forever or almost ever.

Almost every ladyboy I know loves watching porn as do all the older ladies in the massage shop Annie and I always visit. they ask her to show them how to get it on their phone browsers. They all love Farang porn because they love big, white cocks (not joking) whereas ladyboys also like farang porn but the gay variety!

 

There were a couple of outfits making porn in Bangkok the last time I discussed it with anyone. They both rented or used a condo in Bangkok and arranged for the ladyboys to come and make a movie over a period of a few days. The going rate a few years ago was between 3k for solo Ladyboy jerk-off movies to 5k for fucking movies. There were stories of more with specific kinds of sex. The money is not life changing so do only the desperate cash hungry agree to do porn?

Recently I started to wonder about that and did a little research about porn habits.

 

Intuitively knew this already but read an article about Evil Angels a porn producer and it’s director of business development said:

Trans Porn Is Hugely Popular Among Hetero Men

 What’s often called Shemale porn is consistently among most popular

and its most loyal viewers tend to be heterosexual men.

Years ago we had trans material only listed on the gay website but experimented and moved trans content onto the straight site. Sales shot up by 50%. Today it’s one of our top 10 most popular categories

These movies are by far the best selling at Evil Angel, across DVD, web, VOD, television, you name it.

An hour of good trans content is like gold in our business, often generating two times the revenue of an hour of more traditional adult fare. he added.

The owners of RedTube tell us that searches for trans porn have grown dramatically since 2013. See below:

Over at Pornhub, the “Shemale” category features just under 15,000 videos. That’s more than the For Women, BBW and Bondage categories combined. It also tops other popular genres like rough sex, orgy and webcam.

Of course, hammering out the appeal is a complicated task. Different people can be doing the same thing for different reasons. One theory revolves around the idea of fetish. Straight guys fetishize body parts. Even though they are straight in the sense that they only fall in love with women, they only want to have relationships with women, the penis might be arousing to them. The penis is a powerful symbol in all societies and I have often thought part if not all the appeal of ladyboys is in that they possess all the sexual cues of women; lips, breasts, buttocks and a phallus. Think about porn and what is it we see most? It’s a cock entering a female mouth, cunt or ass. The guy who the cock belongs to is usually absent. We learn to be aroused by the sight of a cock and an orifice together. There is something vitally powerful and intoxicating about an erect penis entering an orifice, especially but not exclusively, if it’s our own penis.

It seems that kind of novelty goes a long way in the porn universe. The consumer is always looking for that kind of taboo. Say experts. Browsers may watch something that they would never do themselves, but it being taboo makes it more attractive to them, because it’s not their everyday, normal life

If the numbers tell us anything, it’s that fantasies surrounding trans women are largely entertained through porn consumption. Though there are also those who choose to take things offline and into real life. That’s us.

In the words of a trans sex worker……

There are gay identified men out there that are attracted to trans women and a few will have relationships, but this is still minimal compared to straight identified men, and few to no gay dudes pay trans women for sex.

Most straight identified men begin their attraction with the simple magnetism of the mystery of sex with someone who is so feminine but also has a penis. Oral sex involving a penis other than their own or being fucked by a woman with a penis gives men new body territory and feelings to explore… It’s a multisensory experience, she said.

 

Could the increasing interest in trans porn suggest that people are more accepting and tolerant. I doubt it, personally but a USC scholar said recently that, Porn is part and parcel of society, and our culture is getting more aware and understanding. Even though transsexual porn has existed forever, as the world and our culture is becoming more accepting, it looks at and interacts with this content in a way that is more savvy and forthcoming. In that way, the content has to step up its game.

While I don’t think that the uptake in trans porn suggests more tolerance in society at large I do think, or at least I have noticed an increase in interest in ladyboys in the last 5 or 6 years. Perhaps the SKY TV series ladyboys was even more influential than those of us involved thought. It did break viewing records for it’s time slot by a surprising amount and that is statistically true. Maybe more men felt emboldened to express a desire for ladyboys after watching the show. Anecdotally, several guys have told me that it changed their lives.

Studies have been performed about the effects of porn both negative and positive but most of them are just masturbation as no strong evidence is found either way. Ironic because masturbation is what porn is all about. We all watch or have watched porn, we all jerk off and yet there is such a stigma about it as if jerking off means one cannot get a real girl. Those (it’s usually women) who complain about porn have no idea how it feels to be horny 24/7 like most teenagers and they also don’t understand that jerking off is just easy. Sex with a real person (I’m sure we’d all agree is far more fulfilling) requires effort, energy and negotiation and sometimes all men want is to cum and get on with their day without any bullshit. That’s why living in Thailand is so ‘sabai’. Within 20 minutes of feeling the urge a guy can be getting blown for 800 baht! And getting on with his day! But when we can’t do that, porn is the next best thing and it also allows us to explore different ‘fetishes’ safely. I’m all for it!

The most interesting thing I found was written by an exec from Grooby Productions, the biggest producers of transgender porn in the world. What she said went some way to making sense of the reason Thai ladyboys make porn in the face of Thai conservatism and poor paychecks. She said that ‘Some transgirls use porn for validation and reflection. Some use it for self-exploration. That’s profound and logical especially when we consider what drives ladyboys to be ladyboys and drives them, in many cases, into prostitution. Apart from money we know that ladyboys desire the male gaze. It validates them as feminine and passable or desirable to men. It makes sense that starring in a porn movie fulfills many fantasies for Ladyboys. It’s male attention and desirability on a larger stage!

Grooby also raises money and donates it to organisations that provide emergency services to the adult trans community. They also co-founded ShameKillsLove.com, a project which encourages people to live authentically and unashamed. Now this is interesting:

We ask people to ask themselves, what would it feel like to be free of shame? Whether it’s shame about body, sex, sexuality, or whatever prevents you from living as your most authentic self. The concept of living and loving as our authentic selves is overpowering in its simplicity but incredibly difficult for individuals to achieve. It struck such a chord with me that I joined a couple of trans porn sites a thing I have never done before. I know it is also a concept that all of us who love ladyboys will have struggled with.

As far as porn goes, there is lots of it free online but what I liked about Ladyboy-Ladyboy and Ladyboy XXX, both Grooby websites is that the Thai ladyboys are not anonymous, they are identified with little profile things, albeit with fake names for the most part. You can search for ladyboys from Cascade, Casanova, Temptations etc . . .I like that. Some of the girls are easy to recognize if one has been around a while but I also kinda like that. Some of the direction is very dodgy, the girls are trying desperately to comply with requests the cameraman is making and often getting it wrong, (he is obviously miming some action which they don’t understand) which is funny and also adds to the attraction for me. It’s not entirely plastic and fake. It’s also typical of Thai ladyboys which is endearing, at least to me. The videos are exciting though and a great sub for the real thing!

 

They were shot in Bangkok and Pattaya and so you know that when you watch a ladyboy doing her thing, she is doing it in some condo in Ekkamai, Pinklao or Bang Rak! Finally, if you click through an ad on my website I get commission and you could consider it as a way of contributing to the Real Ladyboy channel AND buying something fun for yourselves at the same time . . .so go ahead, you know you want to!!
