Dear Jean Marie:
I am a crossdresser, maybe a transsexual, I don’t know for sure. I have a problem I have never seen mentioned in any transgender magazines. I am pretty passable. But, sometimes when I am out in makeup, skirt, blouse, pantyhose, panties and heels-maybe walking on the street or at a nightclub-I get erections. And even tight panties and a skirt won’t hide the noticeable bulge that develops. It’s humiliating and it “outs” me instantly as being, physically at least, a male. Do you know of a cure for this-or have any suggestions?
Yours is not an unusual case. It’s a problem that has afflicted every crossdresser or transsexual at sometime or other.
There is one sure cure, of course. Have a sex change, bingo no more panty bulging penis to worry about. But that is rather extreme, and not too practical if you are a CD. Another sure cure is getting a doctor to write you a prescription for a high-level of female hormones like estrogen. In no time, you will find erections are few and far between. This is not as hard as it sounds. These days there are trans-friendly social workers and endocrinologists who will help you. I have also heard that many men who like being women have had good luck keeping their penis soft by taking mammary extracts orally and rubbing mammary creams on their dick (both are estrogen rich, and order forms for both can be found in this magazine). Or, you might try “tucking.” Tuck your testacles and penis far back between your legs and pull on tight panties. Bingo, you can wear much shorter skirts and if your penis can bulge in that position, it sure won’t show.
Yet another solution is to purchase a prosthetic vagina. (You will find them in Transformation’s Transvestite catalog, for instance.) Not only are they realistic looking, so you can wear short-shorts, but the prosthetic does the tucking for you, and keeps your penis safely confined beneath it.
