Why PVC?

As I stepped out of the shower, following a vigorous workout with Sebastian, I saw a message come in on my tablet. Pulling on a lovely pink robe, I took the tablet down to the living room, where Sebastian was sitting drinking an energy drink. As you probably know, Sebastian is my personal trainer.

“Oh, look,” I said. “ my friend’s looking for a cool black and white PVC sissy maids outfit.”

Sebastian looked at me, and said, “I’m never really got the whole PVC outfit thing.  It’s a bit unusual for me. I just can’t imagine a situation in which one would wear such a thing.”

“Well, I’m a bit unusual. It seems a lovely idea to me!” I said.

Now, we’ve had what can best be described as an interesting week. There’s been a few struggles and some  painful learning. One of the images we used some time ago came from a source that hadn’t cleared copyright, so we got a little hurt there, but I hope we’ve resolved that without anyone getting too upset. Should you be aware of any images used inappropriately be sure to let me know.

As I told Sebastian “This weeks been a challenge, but people seem to love the idea of a ‘Man Of The Year’, which is running on the website.”

“And who’s winning that?” asked Sebastian.

“Well, at present I think it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders, actually. She’s beating off stiff competition from Ray Gillette and Bernard the photographer.” I replied, sounding a little confused.

“Ahhhh… Well, maybe I can imagine a situation one would wear a PVC costume. Beating off Ray Gillette and Bernard would be the perfect opportunity.”

“Sebastian,” I replid, “please don’t be so crass!”

On my website you’ll find a nice link to some PVC maids outfits. Perfect for Christmas, don’t you think?

Now, I wanted to give a special shout out to Joni, from Toronto, who is a member of My Little Black book.

She’s delighted to hear from other CDs to chat and connect with. But the main reason I am mentioning her is that she sent this lovely image following a makeup session with Amy. Joni’s picture is delightful and here’s a link to Amy – http://crossdresslasvegas.com/Amy/Amy/DearAmy.html – who is in Las Vegas and evidently does a great job in the make over she provides. I’m thrilled to mention her to you, because she’s clearly very helpful and does a great job.

This week I also had a little push – calm down Amber – into my German friends. We’re expanding and welcoming new members from Germany into My Little Black Book. That gave me the perfect excuse to use the music below. You can learn why I used it here!

Have a great week, and remember if you want to connect with Joni just join My Little Black Book if you haven’t done so already. It’s just $2.95 for CD membersand $4.95 for Admirers each month.

Just too good not to share.  I used this recently in a reach to my German members. Read about it here.
Have you voted in our  ‘Man Of The Year’ poll? Now might be a good time to.

Reach out to my German Members

As we approach the end of the year I’ve been having Max do some data work on some of our projects. One of our most successful is My Little Black Book – it’s connecting many people here in Canada, the US and Mexico. However, I notice that there are just two German members at present.

Now, you and I both know how lonely the CD world can be. My Little Black Book is a great way to connect with others, either for support or for the pleasure of their company, if you should choose to meet. However, being isolated is really not a good feeling. That’s why My Little Black Book is so very helpful.

As you likely know, it’s not exactly overpriced at just US$2.95 a month for CD members, and for Admirers the cost comes in at just $4.95 a month.

I’d really like to be able to give my German friends the kind of support we offer the members in North America. So, consider this a chance to join in my efforts to make our lives just a little better and a little more fun. 🙂

Now,  I usually add a music track to the emails I send. I was looking for something suitable, and stumbled over this live performance by Nena, in the video below. So many of the tracks I include are special to me, and this is no exception. Years ago, before I really found my way, I was dating a wonderful girl who gave me two incredible gifts.

The first was a Sony Walkman and headset. Now, this was no small thing. It was 1983 and I’d never owned a Walkman or any personal player like it. When I listened using a headset for the first time it was like a whole new world of sound opened up for me. Never  before had the music been so very vivid, except in a live performance. Today it seems a little archaic to say it, but at the time it was a truly extraordinary experience. We just hadn’t heard music in such detail that way before.

It was really quite breathtaking. And the tape she gave me was an early release copy of Nena’s album, with 99 Luftballons. It was the perfect sound for this new experience. For those of us who grew up in that time, the message of the song resonated. For cold war kids, four minutes was a long time – just long enough to be nuked. Now, I happen to know the average age of my German friends getting this is 32, so this may sound a little unusual, but that was the reality in which we lived. At the time I was protesting at US Airbases, as many of my friends were, against the arrival of American Cruise Missiles at airbases in England. We were all very political. The sentiment of 99 Luftballons could have been written for us. It was as if Nena were speaking directly to us, and standing there with us in the protest marches.

So, this email gives me an excuse to include something from Nena, now a grandmother, and one of the dearest formative influences that forms part of the background music of my life. She, like my friends and I, has evolved and adapted and grown in many extraordinary ways, and continues to enrich the lives of so many of us. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Think about joining My Little Black Book, and let me know if you do so. You can see the members here.

🙂

Your friend,

Fiona

Everybody Ought To Have A Maid.

It goes without saying that everybody out to have a maid, but when one of my friends recently mentioned the matter of a PVC maids costume, I felt compelled to put this on the site. Enjoy! FD


Images? Urgh… We’ve been had!

You know, one of the greatest challenges in running a site like this is the supply of creative content. It seems a batch of images that we obtained were from a source that failed to check the proper copyright status. As a result we’ve had some awkwardness around those images.

While it’s a tough task, we want to do it right.  With this in mind, I’d love you to help us out. If you see an image on FionaDobson.com that you are concerned about, please email me directly at fdobson@zoho.com – we’d like to do this right and avoid causing any offence or upset.

My regular gurls understand how very seriously we take our program, and being supportive to the crossdressing community. So, with your help I am sure we’ll be able to square things away.

😊

Now it’s easier than ever to find Crossdresser friends!

My little Black Book now has over 500 members. It’s an easy way to meet new friends, and connect with CDs across the globe or around the corner.

I’ve recently added some ways features that make it easier to see profiles and find the people you’re looking for. Check it out below if you like, and then join for as little as $2.95 a month HERE.

Thrusting ourselves deeper!

Thrusting ourselves deeper!

Hi,

I was a little surprised when I arrived at work this morning and found Fiona very excited. She was just back from her yoga class, dressed in that tight fitting pair of yoga pants she loves so much.

“It’s time for us to thrust ourselves deeper into our Admirers!” she said. “I want you to encourage a few more into My Little Black Book – the girls are just desperate to hear from them. It’s like they are all too shy, or something.”

Fiona has a bee in her bonnet because she’s been answering some of the emails from our members who live far from the cities with a CD scene. Some are very lonely and really could use someone to talk to. The Little Black Book is the perfect way to connect with these members.

Now, I know it’s daunting reaching out for the first time, however, once you get a good grip on it, it soon becomes a habit. Before long you’ll be connecting and chatting all the time. What we’re really keen on at the moment is helping you find long distance friendships.

The best dress crossdressers look well dressed – however little we wear.

What many admirers don’t realise is that there are so many CDs who want to form friendships and chat intimately with an admirer, a confidante that they can rely on for friendship and moral support, as they’re slipping into the silkiest of stockings. Crossdressing can be quite an isolated and lonely exercise. We have members as far afield as northern Australia and Zambia – where wandering down to the local bar might earn them something other than admiring glances.

Sometimes when we form distant friendships we can change a life. The keys that jingle in your pocket, the words that jangle in your head, nothing compares to the sadness of the words left unsaid. It’s time to reach out and find new friends.

So today I’m suggesting you join our Little Black Book and contact a few of our more distant members. They’re looking for friends and would love to hear from you. Remember, FionaDobson.com is all about helping our friends and members find their joy. This Thanksgiving, maybe you can help us do that.

You can join our Admirer’s Club for just $49.95 a year or $4.95 a month. Just make your payment here – http://genr8tor.com/fdlbb_noncd/ and then email me and I’ll get you set up.

Julie Renner.

Oakley Dale – Feminize your man Part 4

You’ll see from the first 3 periscopes in this series that you’ve got him used to taking instruction from you by now. You can find those easily by going to fionadobson.com and using the search box to find ‘Feminize your man’. So, your little gurl is behaving pretty well by this stage. She has a good idea that she’s never going to have sex in the way he used to have in his previous life. Now everything’s different.
And this is when you introduce – very gently – the idea that as a complete sissy her usefulness is defined entirely by her ability to give pleasure to others. This is going to take the form of service – doing chores, cleaning the house in a suitable costume, perhaps, but also sexually.
Introducing the idea by this stage is not really that difficult. By this time your sissy only has orgasms at your choice of time and means, and she should be entirely trained to know that she’s never going to have sex with you – unless it’s entirely your own choice.
As a woman this is likely to make you feel quite empowered, to say the least. You can always threaten to tell his friends, and you should have a nice selection of pictures to help convince him to be co operative by now. Ideally, though, what you should start to find is that he doesn’t really need to be threatened at all. Mostly, I find that my sissy’s want to do as I tell them. They are completely driven to please me.
At this point you’re going to suggest that maybe it would be better if he try satisfying a man. After all, he’s such a gurl now! Looking after just one man, for a little fun, would be the most natural thing in the world. In fact, it’s a reward for him.
He’s pretty well prepared physically to be able to do this by this stage, of course. He’s probably going to enjoy it. But, you retain all the control. Make it quite clear that you get to choose who he is going to satisfy.
It’s also important you explain that, however he feel, he’s to make your chosen stud believe he loves it. He should be told to gush over the man – ‘what a big dick! Oh my god, I just love it! I want it so bad!’
Make sure he’s prepared with instructions to tell the chosen stud how wonderful it is.
Now all you have to do is choose someone. I always choose an exboy friend. It seems appropriate. Of course, you could have someone in mind – it’s always fun to choose someone he works with, or sees regularly. It’s like a constant reminder of his feminine self and how it’s there at your disposal, not his.
I’ve told him so many times, by this stage, that the previous guy was so much more of a man, and that he is sweet – “but like a girlfriend really. And, I’m sorry, but you never really satisfied me as a man. And you’re doing so well as a woman.”
Now, when she performs for your chosen stud, you’ll want to help and encourage her. You may even find a nice pic or two helps keep him focused, and after all what better way to help her than share it with some friends of Facebook. And in the end, your helping her. She’s find out who she really is!
Now, I’d like to remind you that you can find some great help feminizing your boyfriend, or even finding crossdressers to date, on FionaCobson.com – In Fiona’s Little Black Book there’s hundreds of crossdressers just waiting to chat or even meet you.
You can always find more of me on OakleyDale.com – and I’ve got a special thing for you today. I’d love to hear from any of you who want to be a ‘special friend’ for me. My special friends are called Pay Pigs – and you send me something to get my attention. You can start by sending me a little tribute to oakleyxdale@gmail.com – you can learn more about how I can help you with this on OakleyDale.com

Winter knitwear for crossdressers

There’s a fresh edge to the weather here in Montreal, and I got up this morning and got dressed all toasty, and went out to visit my friends after plunging my hands in my nice furry muff. It’s so nice to just slide my hand right in there.

And of course, this time of year is wonderful for those of us who love to experiment with wool and knitwear. The feeling of wool against the skin is so sensual, of course. So soft and yielding. I’ve got a friend in Wales who was saying much the same thing recently. At least, I think that’s what he meant. Sometimes it’s so hard to tell.

So today I have three things for you to think about adding to your wardrobe.

The first is a high waisted ‘midi’ skirt. This one is a cotton blend, but you can see it’s lovely and warm and also simply a comfortable fit. Just right for a look of elegance but that’s also very practical.

The second, continuing the knitted theme is this great sweater dress. The wonderful thing about a sweater dress like this is the way it can emphasise your shape. Of course, it’s look wonderful with it’s full collar, but additionally it’s delightful with the right nylons and warm as toast.

And finally I have this delightful knitted long sleeve wrap dress, that’s both warm and comfortable and adds a quiet sense of conservatism, while maintaining a feminine look.

Max is getting busy.

Hi,

Max has been busy up in his bedroom this week, his hands a blur on the keyboard, as he works away like a busy little beaver upgrading parts of My Little Black Book. At least I think that’s what he’s doing up there.

“I hope you’re banging away at this. You know how much I want to get it up,” I told him.

He gets very intense when he’s working away at the computer. He works up quite a sweat sometimes, and even has to towel himself off.

“Oh, yes. I swear if I keep doing this I’m going to go blind!”

“What do you mean,” I asked.

“I’m spending so much time in front of the screen…”

“Oh, I see.”

Max is adding some chat functionality to My Little Black Book, so members can participate in an open chat with anyone else online. It’s in it’s beta test stage at present, but should be complete in about a week. Feel free to go in and play around with it, if you are a member. If not, you can join for a monthly fee of just $2.95 as a CD or $4.95 as an admirer.

As you know, Max has recently started working with my wife’s appalling friend, Amanda on Pig and Pig Farmer Weekly. You’d think she could find a busy beaver of her own, wouldn’t you? Instead Max is burning the candle at both ends.

However, that’s not the only reason I’m writing to you today.  I am so excited to tell you about some lovely new bras specifically for crossdressers that are coming on my radar. Several of my members having been trying out some of the ones available on my site and coming back with great feedback.

Mildred from Colorado Springs writes “My breasts are now bigger than those of most of the women I find attractive. I so want to find a suitable bra, but get very worried about buying them locally. I’m very shy and I feel there’s very little customer support for someone like me!”

Mildred, as you know bras are all about support. And there’s no reason in the world why you shouldn’t have a nice silky or lacy bra to wear either beneath your clothes at home – or all day for that matter. Here’s a link to my website that will help you find bras specifically designed for gurls like us. http://fionadobson.com/clothes/bra-gurl-like/    Have a browse around. The more you explore the more you’ll be able to nip those fears in the bud!

Thank you for the lovely comments I got about the Ghost story I wrote. The Foreshore Light went down well for many of my members.

Have a wonderful weekend, and if you check us out online you’ll likely find Julie or myself answering questions there this weekend and most evenings this week. Just look for the pop up box saying we’re there, and join us for a chat!

Chastity Devices – Breast Forms – Wigs – Corsets

Strip Twister? Huh?

 ‘Imagine,’ Julie said, ‘if our Little Black Book members could post a chat message with a pic of themselves right there.’

I should say that on Julie’s insistence we’ve been playing a very intricate game of Twister with Sylvester and Sebastian. Now, I must admit that while Sebastian is very flexible, Sylvester is about as loose limbed as a fridge. In fact, now that I think about it, I have compared Sylvester to a fridge on several occasions.

Julie, by the way has a very mischievous way of playing Twister. It’s quite simple. She calls it Strip Twister, and one can only touch the floor with one’s hands or feet. Any slip up results in the loss of an article of clothing. Now, imagine that image uploaded to My Little Black Book.

Max was so intrigued by the idea that he got to work on it and now we have exactly what Julie was looking for. You can now log in to My Little Black Bookand chat with others, and upload images of yourself in the middle of a Strip Twister game, or anything else you feel like.

Don’t worry, the images scroll off after a while. You might post what you’re wearing right now, or how you’re doing some eye makeup or even a pic of your cat in drag, if that’s your thing… (Ilena!).

If you’re not already a member of My Little Black Book and would like to join the fun, why not go and sign up tonight.  You never know what’s going to pop up next!

Now, Sylvester is trying to get his leg over Julie. I think I’d better intervene.

The importance of charity.

I hope you’ve been practicing your makeup routine, in preparation for Halloween. So many crossdressers spend time on their clothes without realising that the most attractive thing a gurl can wear is a smile… preferably under a nice coating of YSL or Chanel lipstick.

The best dress crossdressers look well dressed – however little we wear.

Practicing working at your makeup is the single thing most likely to result in a great femme look. Well applied contouring and blush can completely change the shape of the male face, but do require practice. Quiet night in?  Perfect. You can even listen to one of my great self hypnosis videos here to help get in the mood.

This week has been far from quiet. As you doubtless know, I am generous with my time for charities and helping those less fortunate than myself. The advertising agency I work at has many large clients and from time to time they have a few give-aways, which I always do my best to secure, to donate to worthy causes.

This week I was fortunate enough to secure a very nice piano and of all things a mechanical bull. Perhaps you remember that there used to be software companies around that would try to be particularly cool by having a pool table in the reception area, or even a mechanical bull. All very cool, until the insurance company had to make the first pay out. So now, one of the software companies we look after wants rid of the mechanical bull!

I called up Sylvester, who has a great truck and arranged for him to swing by their office and pick up the mechanical bull, and then go on to pick up the piano from another company. Sylvester, being smarter than he looks, got some help from Sebastian, my personal trainer, Max my neighbours son, and Ali my gardener. Between the four of them they got things well organised and loaded while I chatted to the seniors home near Hucklebery Close, who were very pleased to have the piano. A few minutes later the local hockey team returned my call saying they’d love a mechanical bull for fundraising events.

I found myself basking in a sense of self satisfied appreciation until later that day Sylvester swung by and described the difficulty they’d had loading the piano into the elevator at the skating arena. Apparently loading the mechanical bull into the seniors home had gone of without a hitch, though.

Don’t forget to look out for our crossdressing ghost story, this week. Part 1 will appear on the website on Sunday evening. Part 2 is on Monday evening and part 3 comes out on Halloween (Tuesday) evening.

Marjorie has an infestation!

Hi,

Sitting in my kitchen, enjoying a quiet cup of tea, wearing my favorite kimono, I was surprised to see Ali hurrying through the gate in the fence between my garden and my neighbors. Ali, you’ll remember is my wonderful gardener. He’s a Syrian refugee, and the nicest man you can imagine.

He bustled into the kitchen looking flustered.

“It’s Marjorie,” he said looking worried.  “She has the most terrible infestation!”

“She has?” I said, a little puzzled.

“Yes, in her bush. It’s very distressing.”

“Well, it would be,” I replied.

Ali is a gardener, but he was a professor at Damascus University prior to the war.  He is very knowledgeable about botany. When it comes to making my garden bloom, he’s sure to be all over it.

“If her problem spreads to our garden it’s going to be horrible. Aphids are little monsters! I think I should take care of it. If I don’t everyone in Huckleberry Close is going to get it.”

“That’s a wonderful idea,” I said.

Sure enough, later that evening, when Sylvester and Bernard were over enjoying a drink with me at the end of the day, Ali came back happily convinced he’d resolved the issue. He had used some sprays, a little trimming and Marjorie’s bush was looking very thoroughly groomed.

Well, done, Ali,” I said. “After rooting around in Marjory’s bush all afternoon, I think you deserve a little clap.”

As you can see, my life is never dull. By the way, some of you have asked where I get the ideas for the music I usually place in these emails. They are usually special songs for me, each with it’s own story and special meaning. I hope you enjoy them too. Today’s is a special one.

Halloween Story – The Foreshore Light – Part 3

Part 3.

After school I walked home, at first with my friend Tom Silver and his little sister, Jennifer. I left them at their house on the outskirts of the village and then continued on toward the light alone. This was quite usual.

I remember Mrs. Worsely seeing me coming up from the gate and hurrying up to meet me. I knew something was wrong immediately.

“You can’t go in there,” she said firmly. “You just wait outside here with me.”

“What am I waiting for?” I asked.

“You’re waiting for your aunt. She’s coming to get you.”

“But where’s father?” I demanded.

Mrs Worsely looked ashen. “You just wait with me out here.”

Knowing something terrible had happened I easily ducked under Mrs. Worsely’s outstretched arm. I ran the last few steps to the house and then burst through front door. That’s when I saw my father’s lifeless body hanging from the top of the stairs up to the Light room.

He had attached a rope to the bannister and his body was suspended high in the empty hallway. It was a grotesque sight, and one I will never be able to remove from my memory. I have thought about it many times since, and in a strange way it seemed almost like a piece of performance art suspended there, for an audience below that did not exist.

By the time Mrs. Worsely caught up with me and tried to hustle me away to the kitchen, I was transfixed.

“He didn’t want you to find him like this,” she kept saying. “He knew I’d be here. I was late this morning, and the police haven’t got here yet. They’re on their way.”

She was very calm really. I later learned that she suspected something like this may happen.

Time seemed frozen, and all I really remember after that was my aunt’s car arriving at the gate. Mrs. Worsely made a huge pot of tea for me, and the three policemen that were trying to ‘sort things out’ on the landing. Retrieving a body is not as simple as you might assume.

Soon I was bundled out of the house and into the car, where I sat in the back seat, along with my aunt’s collie. The dog seemed indifferent to the confusion and excitement outside. I waited in the car as first Mrs. Worsely and then the policemen spoke to my aunt.

Then we were driving, the soft slap slap of the windscreen wipers and the dim headlights, and then her house. A warm bed, and the emptiness of being alone.

+++

In the coming months I tried to picture what my father had experienced. What had led him to this?

He was not a bad person, after all. He was certainly not selfish, as some have said of those that commit suicide. He was simply disappointed.

Eventually there came a day, months later, when it was time to clear my last few belongings from the old house. Mrs Worsely had packed up most of the things into old tea chests and cardboard boxes. My aunt and I picked up a couple of men from the village who had agreed to help load things into a van my aunt had hired. The driver was to take it and put it in storage near my aunt’s house.

I sat on the dock once my room was clear. I didn’t want to spend a moment longer in the place. One or two locals had come up to talk to my aunt, the local lawyer and someone from the school. It was hardly a festive crowd, but there was more activity at the Foreshore Light than there had been in all the previous months combined.

Wanting to be away from people I sat on the dock alone, and watched as a small launch motored over from the cottage across the bay. Turning, I looked back at the light house. To my surprise I thought I glimpsed someone up in the Light room. By the huge windows I recognized for a moment the form of the woman in black, her hair just as I’d seen it that rainy night months ago. I think she was watching me, intruding on my solitude.

In that moment, I can remember thinking how much I resented that. ‘Just give me some space,’ I thought silently to myself, and turned back to watch the launch.

As it drew closer I could make out a single man in it. I guessed that must be Mr. Grady, probably coming to pick up his wife.

I remember that moment well, because there was an overwhelming sense of grief that broke over me like a wave. We’d had just the one visitor in all those months. How had I not seen that as a warning sign? I now realise that those who remain behind always indulge themselves with blame.

As the little launch tied up at the dock a spritely man stepped of the boat and walked in my direction.

“I’m sorry about what happened, young man,” he said and held out his hand for me to shake.

“Yeah,” I said.  “Me too.” It all sounded hollow, but what else can you say. I shook his hand, which seemed very adult.

“I’m Jeff Grady,” he said.  “I live over there,” and he pointed across the bay.

“Yes,” I replied. “My father mentioned you and your wife.”

“Oh, I don’t think so. I’ve never been married,” he replied, and then added as an after thought, “and thank heaven for that.”

“Oh,” I said puzzled. “I must have misunderstood.”

“Well, not to worry. I just have to wrap up some business with Mrs. Grady. I am very sorry for your loss.”

He walked off, and I turned to watch. The window up at the light was now quite empty.

Soon I was back in my aunt’s car leaving the village. There were no goodbyes, and no lingering last look at the Foreshore Light receding behind the car. Only a feeling that I was pleased to leave the place.

+++

It was late summer when I decided to go through my father’s chest of things. My aunt was out. She’d been reluctant to allow me to go through his belongings, thinking me too young to be exposed to things that might affect me badly. I knew she was trying to be kind, and so when she was out of the house one afternoon I went to the basement, found a screwdriver and began to work at the lock.

Perhaps you can imagine the scene. My father’s sea chest, the empty garage, and me, barely thirteen years old under the single bulb that lit up the room. It didn’t take much work to level the lock off the chest.

I opened up the chest, revealing a tray of papers. I could see there were some old charts, a log book and a journal. I lifted out the tray, and found a collection of uniforms and clothes beneath. There, neatly folded and placed with care was a black dress.

I lifted it out. It was silky and beautiful. Holding it against my young form, I could see it was for someone much bigger than I. I glanced back into the chest, and there revealed beneath the dress was a carefully combed black wig. I suddenly realised I’d seen this dress before, on that rain soaked afternoon walking home from school.

I felt a chill as I recollected the form in the window that day as I stood on the dock, and the house was being cleared. So, my father had returned for one last look at his son. And he’d returned in that sinister form most befitting of the moment, though I’d not realised it at the time.

Beneath the dress, in a small bag, was a some lipstick, some blush and some foundation. A pearl handled comb, and mirror completed the collection. It could almost have been my mothers. And in that moment I could see that my fathers strange exploration was somehow related to lover he felt for his wife. Perhaps, in his own strange way he was honoring her with this unusual manifestation.

So, here in the chest lay ‘Mrs. Grady’, the one and only visitor to The Foreshore Light. She would never be acknowledged, never buried. Though, in some remote and strange way, I felt sure that now she could rest in peace.

The End.

Halloween Story – The Foreshore Light – Part 2

Part 2

(You can find Part 1 here)

One rainy afternoon in spring I was walking home from school and something rather unusual happened. It wouldn’t be something that would stick in my mind, but for the fact that it was so out of place. In the rainy light, which flattened everything and was like a great grey curtain pulled across my view, I trudged my way up the muddy path.

My father had spent the morning mending the gate and replacing the rotten timber with some new beams. It swung closed behind me as I made my way up the road. The thin rain seemed to run down my neck and infiltrate my collar. East coast rain gets everywhere.

Now and then a flash of lightning would light up the house, and in one bright flash I caught sight of a figure outlined against the frame of the huge window in the light room. Standing there, suddenly revealed by the flash of lightning was a tall and statuesque lady, as still as if she’d been cast in stone.

She wore a long black dress, and her hair tumbled over her shoulders. For a moment I thought it could almost have been my mother, but this woman was taller. I was transfixed, but the lightning vanished and with it her silhouette, as though it had never been there at all.

I continued to stare at the big windows, but from this distance and in the sheets of rain, it was impossible to see who the visitor was. I tried to keep sight of her, but as I walked along the road the rain intensified. I knew she could not have missed me, though. The view from there was uninterrupted, and she’d likely be telling my father I was walking up the road. He’d put on the kettle and have a hot chocolate waiting for me., whoever she was.

I hurried along through the rain and by the time I reached the front door sure enough, my father was there with a towel in one hand and a hot chocolate for me in the other.

“Dry your hair,” he said.  “Where’s your hat? I’ve told you, you’ll get sick if you don’t wear it.”

“I’m sorry,” I said.  “Who did I see up in the light room?”

“Oh, that was just Mrs. Grady, from across the bay. She wanted to talk about the dock.”

Father had been talking about building a new dock, so that some of the bigger vessels could land easily.

“She’ll have a wet trip home,” I said as I went to my room and began changing into dry clothes. By the time I came back to the kitchen the rain had become a full on downpour.

I glanced out of the window, and said, “I don’t see a boat.”

“No, she came around on foot. It’s too unpredictable to row over in this.”

I pulled my homework from my bag and laid it out on the kitchen table, as I did every day.

“That’s odd,” I said absently. “I didn’t see her.” I then got on with my studies. Yes, it was a small incident, but I’d never seen Mrs. Grady before.  Come to that, other than Mrs. Worsely, I’d never seen any visitor to the Foreshore lighthouse before.

+++

Winter meanders slowly into springtime in The Maritimes. In the little towns the warm lights of a bar room spill into the street and in the windows are friendly faces talking to one another, staving off the chill north Atlantic wind. In the empty windows of the old foreshore lighthouse no such cheer was to be found.

Some mornings the sea was slate like, grey and flat. A lifeless image in monotone, with just the occasional fishing boat moving out with the dawn.

That last morning was no exception. The radio playing, a voice reading the news. Porridge, some hot chocolate, and the thick cut sandwiches my father made for my lunch, and then out the door with my school books in my satchel. A twenty five minute walk through the dank air to the village school, and as much as I try to hang on to that last day all that was remarkable about it, was how unremarkable it was.

Sometimes, however much you want something to be special, all you are left with is ‘ordinary’. And that’s what that last day was.

The concluding part of The Foreshore Light will be published tomorrow (Halloween) at 6 pm EST.

Halloween Story – The Foreshore Light – Part 1

I can tell this story now, after all these years. Most of the family are long dead, and I’ve never been blessed with children of my own. What little family I have that are still alive are long estranged from me. The events I am going to relate took place sixty years ago, so I know you’ll appreciate that I am not breaking any confidences. However, to a young twelve year old the episode remains one I have struggled with for decades, but perhaps I am getting ahead of myself.

That winter was a cold one, and my mother fell ill with bronchial pneumonia.

The Foreshore Light.

The Atlantic gales would rip in off the Grand Banks and chill us to the bone. Mother was a slight woman, and one day she simply started coughing. Who would think that so quickly she could slide into first exhaustion, and then a swift descent to a wheezing fever. And quite suddenly she was gone, like a candle extinguished in a gust of wind.

At first I was sent to live down the coast with my aunt, but within a couple of months my father managed to get assigned to a lighthouse on the coast, and transferred from a ship board posting, to a land based one, and returned to shore. That was long after the funeral, of course. Mother had been buried with just my aunt, her husband and I at her graveside one rainy fall afternoon.

I don’t remember much about my father’s arrival ashore. There are still vague images of loading up the car, an old Landrover, and leaving aunties house to drive down the coast. Then entering a broken down gate, and driving up a muddy unmade road to the Foreshore Lighthouse.

I quickly learned that all the local people called the building The Foreshore Light. It had been built before the nearby village and was constructed as a remote and self contained lighthouse some hundred years before. The stone and wood construction creaked in the winds, like the ships it had been built to save, and was now close to being decommissioned as the new automated lighthouses were becoming more common place. It was more like a museum than a functional government building.

The wind would whistle through the exposed structure and make sounds like a giant flute for the amusement of the gods. Father and I unpacked, and made the place as comfortable as we could. I can remember trying to find dry kindling from the leaky shed at the end of the overgrown garden, and setting the fire in the hearth.

The Foreshore Light was one of the last of the old lighthouses to be manned, and in retrospect I think the authorities positioned my father there thinking it would help him get over the loss of his wife. He’d worked for the marine authorities since the end of the war, when he was demobbed from the navy. He had many friends in the service, and I suspect it was something of a sympathy posting.

My father had longed for retirement with his wife, while still quite young he was what was once described as ‘world weary’. For the love of his life to be so cruelly snatched away by fate was a blow he struggled to recover from. Yet we did our best to create our new life there, minding the light, with me going down to the village school each day and beginning to make new friends.

It was a remote life, though. I played alone on the rocky shore most days after school, the light from across the bay, a remote house, the only visible neighbour. My father was quite adamant that I should hurry home after school, which I later realised was likely because he was afraid to lose his last remaining close family.

He  would mind the light, manage the radio calls, and maintain the building. He was often in the workshop, the chatter of marine traffic on the radio in the background. We’d gather the weather readings from met instruments twice a day and radio them in, but other than that the work was undemanding.

There were many empty rooms in the old lighthouse, from the days when it had been manned by a staff of four. There was no point heating the whole place, so we lived simply in the kitchen, two bedrooms and the workshop. I would sometimes explore the dusty old rooms, many of which hadn’t been used in thirty years. A few books remained on a bookshelf, and handwritten notes speckled the margins of some. Way back the Foreshore Light had been used as a training location for a trade that was now a fast disappearing lifestyle.

My father wasn’t a very sociable individual. Perhaps he once had been, but the loss of my mother was written all over his face and I now realise he was a severely depressed man. The time I was at home was spent generally alone, except for mealtimes, when father would eat in silence.

I don’t want to paint a sad picture here. I was actually quite happy, but for the fact I missed my mother. I am able to amuse myself perfectly well, and even at that age I realised my father was going through a difficult time. In the village he was known to be a little bit of a recluse, though no one was unkind about it.  At school the other kids would ask me about him, but never unkindly. People considered him a mystery, and somehow that was translated by the local rumour mill into a shadowy past including some heroic, though dark, exploits during the war. I don’t think any of that was true, but I really don’t know. Perhaps it was. No one can tell from this great distance.

Left largely to ourselves, the only regular visitor was Mrs. Worsely, who would walk up from the village daily and cook and clean for father. I can remember thinking her so old that she’d probably been around when the foundations of the old building were laid, but that sort of talk would get me a sharp clip round the ear from my father, and a stiff talking to about showing respect to those older than myself.

I would sit and eat dinner with father, Mrs. Worsely’s form framed in the window as she walked back down the muddy road toward the village in the failing light. It’s strange how those images stay with us over the years. It’s almost as if I can see her before me now, shambling away down the path.

Most evenings I’d be in bed by 7.30, father sitting up in the light room at the top of the house, and listening to the radio. The huge windows of the light room afforded an uninterrupted view of the night sky, and the surrounding sea. He’d have a brandy, though not too much, and his memories. He seemed consumed by the memory of my mother. He didn’t say much, but sometimes I’d find one of our old photo albums up there, or her letters beside an easy chair, where he’d fallen asleep and they’d fallen from his hand. He’d sit there and snore till he woke with the dawn.

At night I’d sometimes wake and climb the stairs to the light room, and see him asleep, the empty glass in his lap. I don’t think he ever saw me there, and as much as I wanted to toss a blanket over him, I felt I shouldn’t let him know I’d seen him like this. He still had his dignity, if not his wife. I wouldn’t take that form him.

The second episode of this three part series will be released tomorrow night.

Heels – The world looks better from 3 inches higher.

Put your best foot forward and enjoy the heels you deserve!

“I think another inch or two might be nice,” I said to Julie, stepping my legs a little wider apart.

“Does it feel good,” she asked, running her crimson red nails up my fishnet clad leg and smothing the line of the nylons.

“Oh, yes,” I replied. I bent further forward and adjusted the strap on the heels I was trying on.

A good pair of heels brings out the shape of your legs, accentuates your bum and introduces a new and challenging posture, that will help you find that feminine look you crave.

Many people wish to look feminine, more than feel feminine. Heels are a challenge for many men who chose to crossdress, however they can be rewarding and when mastered give you a sense of self assurance that brings your crossdressing to a new level.

Enjoy some of the lovely shoes below, and then take your time first wearing, and then practicing your posture and walk in stunning heels.

 

It’s Lipstick Time!

Don’t be caught out with a cheap lipstick on Halloween night! A high quality lipstick is a great way to lift your game. Try treating yourself to a great lipstick like the one listed here. There’s a self hypnosis video below to help make the most of it!

Welcome Rini…

Rini – one of my newest members.

What a delightful surprise to find a lovely new member, Rini, today, who kindly sent this lovely pic. I look forward to all email from my members and try to answer each and every one. Sometimes that not easy, as I usually have to field around 130 emails a day. If I get a little behind (phrasing), don’t be too surprised. However, I do eventually get to everyone.

I’ve been amazed by the growth on the site. We are now listed as one of the top crossdresser websites in the world. That’s due to the loyalty and kindness of all my followers.

Don’t forget your rape whistle!

Hi,

Such wonderful correspondence I’ve been receiving recently. Julie and I have been bending over backwards to get on top of it, and we’ve had almost all we can take. I have to say, some really is hard to swallow!

Mildred in Colorado Springs writes:

“I have been so happy dressing lately, and one of my recent accessories is a lovely rape whistle on a silver chain. It looks wonderful, but no matter how long I spend blowing the whistle so far I’ve had no luck!”

Mildred, that’s not how the whole rape whistle thing works, darling, however I love the creativity of having it on a nice ornamental chain. Keep at it and I’m sure you’ll eventually find what you’re looking for.

Now, whilst I suspect you would find this very hard to believe, there are some people who have described me as being a trifle insensitive. This is something I find very hurtful, as I really do attempt to go through life shining light on those dark corners into which a little joy and happiness would be appreciated.

It is with a degree of disappointment and embarrassment that I have to relate the events of this week. In my defense I would say that this could have happened to anyone!

It all started when Max, my neighbours son, came over to my house along with one of his childhood toys. Perhaps you remember the particular toy. It’s even sold today, surprisingly. It’s called ‘Tickle me Elmo’.  The big thing about this cuddly pink toy was that if you touched it, it would start start giggling and shaking violently. This in turn starts the child giggling and usually everyone in the room laughing. It was very popular when it came out years ago.

Now, like many toys, over the years it broke. In the case of Max’s Tickle Me Elmo, it was dyed brown, to be like Paddington Bear – that Max enjoyed as a little boy. So, this now brown bear like creature was renamed ‘Parkinson’. Well, it could hardly be named Paddington, as it was slightly different. And so Parkinson came into being. Max played with Parkinson throughout his early childhood, and then he was consigned to the bottom of a toybox and forgotten. At least, until my good friend Sylvester offered to fix the thing and return it’s voice and movement.

“You can do that?” said Max.

“I love fixing old toys,” said Sylvester. “Let me play around with it and see what I can do.”

Now, it so happened that Sylvester left the partially restored creature in my kitchen last time he came over, knowing Max was sure to be by, and that I’d pass it on to him when he arrived. It turned out he was unable to fix the voice, but was able to get the toy to shake and tremble every time one touched it. It was rather a strange effect, I admit, but I suppose he did his best. So, Parkinson sat on the side in my kitchen for a few days waiting for Max.

None of this should be a problem, of course, were it not for my wife’s appalling friend, Amanda. She dropped in unexpectedly, my wife being away on an unplanned business trip in Poughkeepsie.

As she came my in back entrance, I said to her, ”I’m sorry, Amanda, she’s not home. She’s in Poughkeepsie.”

“That’s not even a real place!” she replied, making herself at home in the kitchen. I poured her some coffee from the freshly made pot.

“Well, I’m just stopping for a moment. I have my father outside in the car. I’m taking him down for his check up. I wondered if your wife wanted to meet for lunch one day next week. There’s that new Korean restaurant. I know she likes Asian.”

“Of course,” I said. “The one next to the pet shop.  If you give her a call tonight I’m sure she’ll be able to talk.”

Amanda glanced across the kitchen counter at the toy sitting there. “What on earth is that?”

“Oh, that’s Parkinson.”

“You are a strange and complicated person,” she said reaching out for it. As she touched it the toy began shaking and convulsing violently.

The next thing I knew she slammed her coffee on the counter, muttered something about me being a monster and stormed out before I could say a word. I was left staring at her retreating form wondering what I’d said that she found so offensive.

The next moment in walked Max. He often swings by around the time I do my yoga workout. I think the yoga pants are more of a draw than the yoga itself, with Max. My downward dog has caused a certain degree of upset for Max – See the episode with the carrot.

“Amanda left in a hurry,” he said as he wandered in.

“I can’t think what got into her,” I said.

“Not much, I should say. I saw her father in the car as I came in. He’s a lovely man. I’ve met him a couple of times since I started working with her. Such a shame about his health.”

“Oh, really? What’s the problem?”

“He has Parkinson’s disease. Terrible shame.”

I shuddered and handed Max Parkinson. I think I may have to start avoiding Amanda.

Chastity time.

Just the other day I mislaid my keys, which is very unlike me. Sylvester happened to be round at my place, and as I explained, it was a great inconvenience.

He whipped out his tool, and before I knew it was grunting and gasping as he worked away, pumping to and fro as he hacksawed off the lock on my bicycle.

Which brings me to this afternoon’s offering from my shopping list. Below is a delightful selection of chastity devices, for those so inclined. Don’t loose your key!


Get ready to swallow!

Sebastian was almost gagging.

“That’s it,” I said. “Take it all in…”

“I can’t,” he stammered, resisting.

“You’re going to swallow, all of it,” I insisted. “Open wide.”

Let me explain, Sebastian has been suffering from a bit of a cold lately and is having trouble getting over it. I decided a nice Kale-Ginger smoothie would give him a little help.

Sebastian doesn’t like either kale or ginger. As he reluctantly gulped it down, I told him what a good boy he was.

“Shall I get you a towel?” I asked noticing a little of the creamy liquid on his chin.

As you know, I am very mindful of the health of my friends. However, that’s not the main reason I’m writing to you today. Today I wanted to draw your attention to something I found interesting and feel sure you’ll share my enthusiasm for.

When we dress, feminine or otherwise, we are saying a great deal about who we are. Our entire presentation to the world is reflected in our clothing. The way we offer ourselves to the world has a huge impact on how accepting the world is of us, as crossdressers or simply individuals. In the talk below Jen Rozenbaum explores some of these ideas, and talks about boudoir photography.

Some of her tips are very interesting, especially if you’re creating great CD pics either online or for My Little Black Book. One of her points is about how, as a photographer she finds ways to bring out the positive aspects of her subjects. There’s a lot to be said for the idea that whatever we choose to wear, we can bring out the very best side of ourselves by presenting ourselves in a positive and empowered way.

I would suggest we can take this a step further. For example, if you feel you’re a different person to the one you were three years ago, then why are you wearing the same clothes? Why are you not presenting yourself to your world (CD or otherwise) in a new more developed manner?

While I wouldn’t suggest we should trash all our clothes every year, there’s a lot to be said for the idea of giving serious consideration to the way we present ourselves as we grow and discover ourselves. Personally, I know I dress with more confidence today than when I first guiltily played with my cousin’s panties.

So, here’s a fun thing to do this weekend. Take a look at your wardrobe (femme or otherwise) and select a few things that no longer reflect who you are and toss them out. Refining your wardrobe is liberating and leaves space for some new expressions of who you are becoming.

Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens

I have read this and can only recommend it in the highest terms. Not only does Eddie Izzard tell his own poignant story, he also helps the many men that love to crossdress understand what they are doing.

Eddie is like a beacon, guiding others as they explore this unusual and joyful experience. His honesty and sincerity shine through on every page. The book is filled with humor, understanding and the deep authenticity of one has has walked a challenging path.

As I finally placed this book for the last time by my bedside, lying in my silky nightie, my thoughts were of my gratitude to Eddie, and how I wish I could get a little more of him… No, wait… You know what I mean.
