Tranny Fans, I Want to Hear From You

Tranny
There are a lot of misconceptions about guys who like tranny porn – the main one being that they’re gay. I’d just like to open the comments to folks who appreciate and enjoy tranny/shemale/tgirl porn to give their 2 cents. What kinds of movies do you like? Does the intense negativity in the reviews of tranny porn get you down? What do you wish non-fans knew about people who dig tranny porn? Keep in mind, you can comment on the blog with any name you like, not just your VideoBox username.

This post is really for fans, so if you don’t like this genre that’s okay, but I’m really hoping to hear from those who do.

    Alison:

    i neither oppose or support TS DVD’s. it seems the dilemna for you and VB administrators is that of whether it should be placed on the regular site or the gay site. there is controversy both ways.
    i don’t see what the big deal is,other than that there are lots of members that just simply enjoy complaining. if i run across that i have downloaded a tranny video and i don’t wish to watch it all i have to do is delete it.
    I try to be tolerant of those that have differing lifestyles than me,and i think more people should do the same.
    I am not gay or do i care for tranny videos but hey i will defend the rights of those that are gay,or enjoy tranny videos. Gays are just as much human as any so called straight person.
    Gay bashing sickens me.ok go ahead and everyone bash me for my statements if that is what you wish to do. but i would hope that my words may make you think.
    As a child of the 60’s i learned about human compassion on the positive side,and between Nam and the civil rights movement i learned how bad hatred can get. Gay bashing is that same kind of hatred. End of speech.
    Alison i admire your addressing this very controversial issue

  2. HotScooter2 Says:

    let me clarify my statement about civil rights movement. the hatred was mostly on the side of the ones opposing african americans from obtaining their civil rights.

  3. zarafan Says:

    I agree with HotScooter 100%; if there are customers out there who really want tranny vids, why the heck not: I won’t try to shout them down if they won’t try to interfere with my Europorn preferences. There should be two mottos for this site–something for everyone, and live and let live!

    Cheers, hats off, and thanks Alison and ContentDude!!

    And please see my posting in the last entry about new content requests!!!! :-)

  4. Klinkertim Says:

    Even the gay community will tell you that there is a big difference between gay and TS/TG. In fact a lot of the gay community do not except the TS/TG community. I for one am a fan of some TS/TG films, just like i enjoy strait sex and everything else this site has to offer. As I get older I realize that less and less is in black and white and that sometimes many shades are kind of beautiful.

  5. ropeadope Says:

    Hey Alison,

    No question in my mind that the “intense negativity of the tranny reviews”, as you so aptly phrased it, is responsible for suppressing many positive comments that would otherwise show up. Additionally, I’ve always held the belief that only a minute fraction of the VideoBox membership involve themselves with the movie reviews or the blog articles. My guess is 5% maximum and that may be overstating the level of participation. This would explain the popularity of the tranny downloads and large number of emails requesting tranny vids despite the negative commentary.

    I would like to encourage all members who have thus far been “lurkers”, to begin joining the discussions. Both here on the blog and over in the movie review section.

    As to the question at hand, I am a fan of the tranny genre. I believe the best tranny video on the site is My Girlfriends Cock from Red Light District. My favorite scenes in the tranny category are tranny-girl (scroll down here for my blog review of Tails of Perversity 11 scene 2 with Christie Lee & Vicki Richter), but I enjoy all tranny variations.

    Devil’s Film has several good tranny lines (I don’t believe they’re currently available for licensing). Ava Devine took on three trannies in a volume of Transsexual Gang Bangers and Desire Moore has done a couple of scenes for the Transsexual Prostitutes series.

  6. fedor Says:

    Well…its not my thing. People are into what the are into but I have a hard time not seeing how its not gay. If their are two dicks in a porn and no female…well…

  7. whackitgood Says:

    I like tranny porn, but only if they cum (the TS I mean).

    Now, I’m married and straight. However, I also wish VB has gay porn. The whole idea of porn is to whack off to things that you wouldn’t normally do (i.e. Jenna Haze). Don’t get me wrong, if it weren’t for the whole aids things, herpes, etc., oh adultery, oh and Jenna Haze isn’t interested in me, I would totally fuck her…but alas that’s not happening.

    Also, I wouldn’t dare fuck a Brazilian tranny, nor would I fuck a dude, but I’d spank it to it…it’s fantasy.

  8. greywind57 Says:

    I know these posts are supposed to be from fans of the genre, but screw that. I wanted to put my 2 cents in.
    I am not a fan of tranny porn, but it does not bother me that it’s on the site. I would prefer that such updates to be held to a small percentage of the overall updates just because it does not interest me (and I would venture to guess that most users feel the same way).
    That said, great site!

  9. alison Says:

    HotScooter2 – I think it’s really cool that you were the first commenter on this subject. I wish more folks (not just VB members) had views as tolerant and accepting as yours.

    zarafan – It’s awesome that you are supportive of other peoples’ kinks even if they don’t overlap with yours. And don’t worry, your suggestion was definitely noted :)

    Klinkertim – Thanks for commenting. I think it helps other members to hear the perspective of guys who enjoy a variety of different types of porn without worrying about what it means about them.

    rope – Thanks for sharing those suggestions! It’s awesome that you’re willing to go out on a bit of a limb like that. Devil’s is known as having some of the best tranny stuff out there. As is Evil Angel (another studio I wish we had!). Nacho Vidal is supposed to be making some top notch tranny stuff. Have you seen any of it/have an opinion?

    fedor – I think there’s a lot more to sexuality than just gay and straight.

    whackitgood – I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Porn is about fantasy. I know for a fact that there are things that I think are hot in porn that I would never ever do in real life. That’s what’s so great about it!

    greywind57 – Do you think we do a good job at keeping them a small percentage? Looking at the total number on the site, the tranny category comprises about 1% of all of the DVDs we offer. And thanks very much!

  10. angel64 Says:

    I enjoy the TS/TV videos. I might not have said so a few years ago, but they’ve grown on me. Please keep bringing them in — I would be very disappointed if they stopped!

  11. fedor Says:

    “fedor – I think there’s a lot more to sexuality than just gay and straight.”

    I’m not sure what you mean here. And by no means am I attacking gays here because I could not care less what ones sexuality is. It doesn’t bother me in the least. But I can’t wrap my brain around how two guys having sex isn’t gay. I’m not saying that someone is gay if that like it, just a fan of unique porn that falls somewhere in a sub category under the larger category of gay sex.

  12. greywind57 Says:

    alison Said: “greywind57 – Do you think we do a good job at keeping them a small percentage? Looking at the total number on the site, the tranny category comprises about 1% of all of the DVDs we offer.”

    Yes, I think it’s just fine.

  13. mister H Says:

    I’m a big fan of tranny films; probably about 1/5 of my collection at home is them. I like them, especially US-shot ones – while the ubiquitous brazillian t-girls in many films are hot (and often very passable) the films don’t do as much for me.

    As for the gay/straight question, I think the attraction of tranny films is that pasable girls DO blur the line – the fantasy is of “a chick with a cock,” and if the girl is hot enough to push the “female” buttons, that’s what turns me on.

    I don’t enjoy gay films – I’ve watched a few – and am turned off by guy-only scenes in bi films. But I enjoy guy-girl-guy bi scenes, occasionally, and tranny films more often.

    Anyway, I’d love to see more TS films here at Videobox, or at least more US/European ones (the Shemale Jet Set films are A++…) and fewer Brazilian ones.

  14. mister H Says:

    Oh – the best Tranny stuff I’ve found overall is Joey Silvera’s Rogue Adventures/Shemale Roadtrip series, although it’s a little brazil-heavy (can’t imagine it’s licenseable, though, given how heavily he pushes his own web site.)

    The one Nacho Vidal/Evil Angel film I saw wasn’t great, and what I’ve seen from Devil’s Films has been pretty mixed – some really good stuff, some annoyingly low-production-values stuff. There are some really good older films from Kim Christy productions. Ditto Androgeny, Bizarre and Totally Tasteless.

    Oh, lastly – have to agree with Rope about Tranny-Girl scenes being particularly great, and they seem to be getting more common in videos than in the past.

  15. whatever Says:

    You know, if you’re a fan of anal, TS/TG films cut out all the bullshit.

    Keep it up guys.

  16. G man Says:

    As much as I find the gay-bashing, tranny-hating, racist, chauvinist and otherwise narrow-minded remarks offensive, most of all I feel sorry for the people who make them: 1) what a boring, uptight sexuality you most have if anything but one-white-cock-in-one-white-pussy feels threatening and 2) what a sad little life you must have if you get off on spewing your venom on a porn site review board.
    Having said that it also worries me that those retarded comments are so aggressive and numerous that they may make some fans of tranny vids (and other non-vanilla categories) worry that there is actually something “wrong” with them.
    Tranny sex is not one of my biggest turn-ons – but I can get into it. Given the chance (and the acceptance of my hot and wonderful wife) I would also try it in real life. I would even be happy to try an interracial fetish tranny threesome involving anal … so go on you bigots … hate away!
    The problem with the tranny category is that it actually comprises some very different sub-categories: trannies doing women, trannies doing each other, trannies doing guys and guys doing trannies … and even some quite different styles within each of those sub-categories. Therefore you presumably need quite a few scenes to keep the diffent types of tranny fans happy.
    My personal preference would be trannies and guys doing each other. But I am really, really picky … the trannies must be hot and feminine looking (rather than dudes with long hair, bad boob jobs and collagen lips from hell) and they need to be sporting more than a semi-withered cock which is only hard for half of the scene. So for me there are actually not many of the scenes on VB which get me breathing heavily.
    There are other things I would like to see more of on VB: more naturally curvaceous women, more peeing, more titty-fucking, more rough sex / domination of the intelligent and non-abusive kind.
    But you know … it’s hard to get upset about the stuff that one would like more off when there are constantly so many scenes of splendid wankability added … when content quality keeps improving … when the super people at VB put so much effort into keeping us happy … and when the site is even developing into an interesting debate forum.
    There is actually only one thing I can truly gripe about … one type of scene that is unacceptably missing on VB … one oversight that must be put right: I am (obviously) referring to Bree Olsen, Vanessa Blue, Natasha Nice and myself getting down to business in the mother of all foursomes … when oh when will VB and Porn Valley address this tragic and inexplicable omission?! (I’ll even bring the whipped cream and nipple clamps.)

  17. jimmyhc Says:

    A solution for all parties that would cater to both the interest in dudes with tits, and the interest in NOT seeing dudes with tits get fucked by other dudes, is a profile based content filter/promoter. eh?
    honestly, quickest boner kill

  18. nova1972 Says:

    Well, tranny vids.
    I already posted, a few months ago, that there is not enough of it. I keep paying another 25 something $ a month to download tranny vids from another site. (No worries my VB membership is still active) Of course instead of paying two sites I’d prefer just paying one (VB) but at least the weak dollar helps lowering the cost.(I live in Europe.)
    So do I want more TS stuff? Yes.
    And I would like the idea of Bi stuff and of Gay stuff too. But I don’t think I would ever pay to become a member to a Gay site.
    About the TS stuff I like more: Orgies TS with men…
    Major turn offs: TS with girls, TS doing guys.
    Fortunately the TS I subscripted gives me access to another TS site, with different stuff, and to a Bi site with the same membership. 3 with only 25$.
    Well that’s all for now.
    I have to keep on dl from the TS site, maybe I have to buy another external HD…then I have to dl the Bi stuff… a lot of work to do.
    Well C ya!

  19. passport1 Says:

    Totally agree with Whackitgood…I enjoy watching them when the TS comes

  20. halin Says:

    Don’t mind it but rarely download any.
    I did have a quick look on gayvideobox preview site just now and must say some of the bisexual porn looks pretty interesting. Perhaps some bi movies could be samples over here?

  21. papayaman Says:

    I pretty much agree with G man about the rabid homophobic comments you see when a tranny update is posted. But unfortunately, the nature of a site like this is that a hell of a lot of morons are going to post comments (eg the monkeys who seem to think that anal sex with a woman is gay). Although there are a lot of minority interests that I just dont engage with (eg chubby girls, foot fetish, the elderly) there are things I like that others dislike (eg anal, lesbian and gaping). It is a matter of mutual tolerance. I might not be able to understand why somebody would want to see fat girls, but others would likely not be able to understand why I like seeing Aurora Snow’s orifices gaped really wide. Just as I would hate anal and some other things being eliminated from the site I am sure others would hate the chubby and foot fetish videos being taken off. So it is a good thing that VB caters for a variety of interests.
    I have never actually seen a tranny video on VB that really grabbed me, but as a regular visitor to Thailand I can tell you some of the ladyboys can look very very attractive indeed. So I am happy to see some tranny additions. I would also heartily second G man’s request for more tit-fucking and peeing videos. The latter because I know some of my favourite stars have done peeing videos (eg Jade Marcella and Annette Schwartz) and the former because one of my fetishes is women with lovely tits (eg Daria Glower, Lucy Thai, Jane Darling) getting them covered with sperm. Best of luck to G man in his request for the foursome scene featuring himself. If VB take this concept on board I will happily feature in a threesome with Sabrine Maui and Lucy Thai – and I’ll even supply my own viagra.

  22. ropeadope Says:

    Alison – I was not aware that Nacho Vidal was involved in producing videos of this nature. I checked with iafd and a few items look quite intriguing. She Male Domination Nation includes a scene in which Nacho and a tranny DP and double anal Bella Donna! Also of interest is Bang Bang She Male: Ariana Jollee, where Nacho and fifteen trannies gangbang Ariana. I understand these vids are from Evil Angel and won’t be making their way to VideoBox in the near future, but I appreciate the heads-up.

    Wonderful to see all the input that this post has generated, both from veteran and new participants to the blog. Excellent discussion handled in a professional manner without the unnecessary insults and aggressiveness that are typically found in the tranny movie review comments.

  23. CMoney Says:

    It doesn’t bother me. I’ve watch some of them from time to time. Some of them looks really good & some don’t. People have a right to watch what they please.

    Just an FYI, people can be born Transexual, so not all are sex operations.

  24. Charts Says:

    I am not always into the tranny/guy scenes- I find myself watching them more out of a weird sense of curiosity than anything else, but I definitely do like tranny/tranny scenes as well as tranny/girl scenes. I’d say that tranny/girl scenes can be some of the hottest ones, and the fact they are really rather rare makes it all the better once you find one

  25. Me4U2NV Says:

    I really enjoy the tranny vids, especially the ones where the tranny is fucking a male, just my preference. I think it has to do with the role play. I myself would like to see more of Susanna/Joanna Holmes, the big dick black tranny, but all in all, keep the tranny vids coming.

  26. CNote Says:

    I am very respectful of peoples views and sexual orientation, but I have to be honest, the whole tranny genre disgusts me. I mean, chicks with dicks? How sexually confused do you have to be to like that? Im not TRYING to be mean, but thats really messed up. I have a few gay friends and I asked one of them if they like tranny porn, and it was a resounding HELL NO. I can handle the gay lifestyle, but trannys, in my opinion, is right up there with beastiality (I think thats how its spelled). I understand its a fantasy, but damn, thats very abnormal. Id rather watch a years worth of gay porn than watch 10 minutes of tranny porn, and I am 100% straight.

    And Im sorry, if you are a guy, and you enjoy beating off to gay porn or other men, you have some gayness in you. I have no problem with it, but there is no point in denying it. Maybe you arent completely gay, but if you have sexual desires for other men and you beat off to it, you are at least somewhat bi. Completely straight men dont have sexual feelings for other men.

    Again, let me say this isnt meant to bash anyone for their tastes. I could care less what people do with their private time. Those are just my God’s honest views.

  27. papayaman Says:

    Earlier I wrote that I’d not seen a tranny scene that I liked on VB, but thanks to Ropeadope’s recommendation I have now found the incredibly hot scene with Christie Lee in Tails of Perversity. Very much like a lesbian scene with two hot girls, but one of them has a dick. Many thanks Rope.
    Cnote, I think the whole issue is whether in fact anybody can really be described as 100% straight. I tend to think not. As others have pointed out human sexuality is not divided between two polar opposites of straight and gay – rather it is a continuum and we are all located somewhere along that continuum. But this implies that in all probability none of us are wholly straight or wholly gay. It doesn’t mean any of us who are basically oriented towards girls are suddenly going to become gay or that we are desperately repressing a desire for men. But I think it does mean that we should be a little bit more careful about drawing hard and fast lines between ourselves and others who have different tastes that are (at least implicitly) less acceptable in some way.
    Myself, I think the whole straight/gay issue is a lot less important than considerations like whether or not the sex (whatever type it may be) is consensual. All participants have to be capable of consent and consenting. That is why I dont like the scenes where it looks like girls are actually distressed by what is happening to them and it is of course why most of us find things like bestiality and anything that might involve children completely unacceptable. If something is done to somebody (or indeed a beast) that is incapable of giving their informed consent, or that has not given consent, then that for me is violence. Compared with this question of consent it seems to me that whether something is gay or straight is just unimportant. Like Cnote, I’m not trying to put anybody down here, its just my opinion.

  28. Strangepork Says:

    I was one who posted a somewhat negative comment on the last tranny video, but I have since deleted it. I don’t like the idea that anyone should feel bad about the kind of porn that they want to watch, and when I notice that something I like has a lot of negative comments, I try to make a point of saying something positive about it. There are enough videos here that I want to watch, that it really seems petty to complain about the ones I don’t want. If I ever run out of good stuff, maybe that attitude will change….
    But……
    I am still of the mind that any movie without biological women in it is kind of out of place here. You say that gay men don’t like transsexuals, and I understand that. A transsexual is someone changing their gender, after all. To a gay man, that’s got to seem like they are changing teams. Likewise, just because gay guys don’t like it, it doesn’t make it a completely “straight” fetish either – I believe that they appeal to men who identify themselves as straight, but who are a bit more “curious” or adventurous than the average straight guy. Whatever you want to call it, two people with matching genitals having sex does not fit that standard definition of heterosexuality.
    But……
    I’ve got plenty of other good stuff to watch, so I should just shut the fuck up.

  29. Greg Says:

    Although I dislike the tranny videos, I have to give thanks that you only have girls with dicks rather than guys without them. I would hate to stumble across that….

  30. whackitgood Says:

    While we’re at it… Who also likes:
    1) Peeing videos ???
    2) Gay videos?
    3) Lactating videos?
    4) Midgets… sure why not
    5) I even like the bongwater butt babe pooping scene

    I’ll tell you what I could do without:
    1) If they weigh over 175 (and that’s pushing it) – then please don’t add these.

    2) others???

  31. CNote Says:

    papayaman,
    That does make sense, but in the end, you are either straight, gay or bi. If a person never had a gay thought in their life, Id say that makes them 100% straight. Maybe its a little more complicated than that, but I dont like to over complicate things that are actually pretty simple.

    Again, I have nothing against the gay or bi communities. I actually have 6 gay friends and 1 bi friend. I get along with them well because they respect who I am and I respect them.

    I personally just think trannies are disgusting. I think I am a very tolerant person. Im not racist, sexist or any kind of -ist. Im not intolerant of people who like that stuff, but I am very disgusted by it. I dont even know what it is. I just find it appalling and honestly dont understand how anyone can like it. Doesnt mean I dont respect peoples tastes, thats just how I feel.

  32. dreamstate Says:

    I have seen a number of tranny scenes on VB and I am straight. Most of the scenes I enjoy are the ones with the tranny and a regular girl having sex. Vag, anal even straight girl with toys to tranny makes for interesting viewing. I am not turned on by tranny anal on a guy. A guy doing a tranny is OK, but does not do it for me as much as a regular girl.
    Am I opposed to tranny vids? NO! Please do not eliminate this category on VB. Other fetish/kink has a place here too. For some, it is their main thing. For me, it depends on my mood. I love variety in fantasy and that is not a bad thing.
    I took a quick look at the selection at my local video store (which has a very large selection- about half the store which is the size of Blockbuster) and their selection in comparison to everything else is small also, but is not going to be eliminated. They have told me that there is enough consistent interest to pay for the cost of the DVDs and then some. These are NOT going to make more than say a Red Light District vid but enough to keep the niche alive. I think it is the same for VB. Thanks Alison and VB!

  33. KyonoRocks Says:

    I think a main problem with the tranny vids is that they take the place of a normal vid. With such a touchy subject I think a lot of people are bitter because they expect some good old fashioned straight porn and instead they get something that they can’t watch. I guess this applies to BBWs, Midgets and ethnic focussed tapes, but the key point here is that people are on a straight porn site and want straight porn. Personally I don’t watch Tranny vids, if they’ve still got a dick then they’re a man IMO. This is a case that borders on the gay/straight line and while I don’t mind having tranny vids on the site, I think they should be a minority update as they alienate a lot of customers

  34. papayaman Says:

    Cnote I guess I can understand just not liking something and finding it disgusting. Like yourself, I have a number of gay friends that I like and respect. But I have no desire whatever to see porn depicting what gays do together and find the idea pretty disgusting. This is despite the fact that if a tranny looks female and pretty enough (and especially if they are performing with a girl) I can get off on that. Even though I find the idea of watching gay porn rather repellent, I would not want to ban gay sites. Which I guess is much the way you feel about tranny videos so I think we are actually on much the same page here.

    KyonoRocks, I agree that most people want straight porn – but even if the site restricted itself completely to straight porn (I know that is not what you are advocating, but stay with me) a hell of a lot of us would find some updates disappointing. For example some guys love big tit updates, but if they are silicon heavy its going to do nothing for me. Its all a matter of taste and what particular kinks turn you on. Somebody who wants to see a girl swallow a load will probably wonder what the hell is wrong with me for wanting see come land on a girl’s tits. The thing is that when the latest update does not satisfy your tastes go back to the archives. I have been a member of this site for a couple of years now and I am still being surprised by the treasures I am discovering on the back-pages. Like most people I feel a degree of disappointment when I see a midget or fatty update (I’ll never be able to see what is supposed to be sexy about those), but some people do like them – and there is more than enough in the archives to keep just about any taste satisfied.

  35. fj Says:

    I’m not into tranny vids, but nevertheless I would like to see more diverse content on this site. For my taste there could be more peeing stuff and some sploshing. Others may miss other stuff I perhaps do not like. But nevertheless this would make the site even more interesting to explore. The amount of content is great, but most of it is quite plain and vanilla.

    To easy search there should be an option to exclude tags from the search. Perhaps I missed it, but all I found up so far is the option to refine search requiring additional tags, not excluding them.

  36. firesnype Says:

    Hey allison,
    I’m not one for tranny porn but if it’s posted guess what I do… I just don’t watch, Simply because it’s not my thing. There are people out there that like it so by all means you have to serve their needs too because they, just as everyone who doesn’t like tranny porn pay a membership fee and keep this site going. This was a good Subject but I find it kinda funny that the same people that hate tranny porn always, always have time to “review” I mean they actually look at the scenes or at least the screen caps to do you. I one despised it so much why even acknowledge it? Like I said great post and maybe you should do one on why so many people here hate interracial but always seem to watch anyway.

  37. Toby Kulture Says:

    I don’t have any issue with other peoples sexuality. You could be into guys, girls, trannies, animals, aliens, that’s your business. However I just don’t get the appeal of she-males. Psychologically I get what would make a person gay. But to me there has to be a screw loose in your brain to like a sex that doesn’t exist in nature(I guess Hermaphrodites are kind of like trannies and exist in nature).

    I think she-males are kind of like the Heroin of porn. Once teens, milfs, anal, threesomes, and gang bangs aren’t doing it for you anymore. You got to up the dosage.

  38. Boss Says:

    Ill Pass

  39. jcather Says:

    I for one like some of the tranny movies, these chicks are real and very attractive for the most part. I think that those of us who like them are hesitant to post posative comments because of all the neg comments. but hey, a hot chici is a hot chick even if she has a dick, and many of you wouldn’t agree, but you think so too.

  40. zarafan Says:

    I guess it all comes down to the fact that our tastes, whatever they are, are often more complicated and idiosyncratic than some of us would care to admit. Personally, I find little out there more boring than standard USDA government-issue missionary-style porn: if all the girls are American and all the sex is oral + vaginal, it’s almost certainly not something I would download–or perhaps I should say that it’s no more likely that I would download it than if it were a tranny vid. So why would we stigmatize the tranny vid–which is, what, 2% of the content here; 1%??–and say that’s something we shouldn’t have on our site when some of us are just as turned off by a genre of porn that’s maybe 60-70% of the videos here?
    While we’re at it, if I liked EVERY video on the site, I’d quickly run out of time for other things and space on my computer: sometimes it’s actually a relief when an update is so clearly out of my interest-range, whether too tame or too far on the edge or an Audrey Hollander feature ;-) that I don’t have to think about watching it. Though I admit that after 2 weeks of a dry spell even I get restless….
    But as I said previously, the remarkable strength of this site is how well it caters to so many of us, and it can only do so if it provides some content that some of us will like and others won’t–that’s in the nature of desire, right? Variety is what makes this site what it is, and tranny vids are part of the self-designated varieties. Part of the appeal is trying out things on video that wouldn’t necessarily interest you in real life. Another part is finding out about stuff that you didn’t previously know was out there; before subscribing to VB, for example, I had never heard of Brianna Love or Sasha Grey, or a whole lot of other performers who currently rank among my favorites.
    So stick around for the ride, folks: VB is a lot like the weather in Connecticut–if you don’t like it right now, wait a few hours and it changes!
    Best wishes, one and all….

    has the negativity really been intense? its abundant, i can grant you that..but (imo) its trivial too. i dont think its any more negative than the flogging those goes on around an Audrey Hollander scene. but this is really post for those who enjoy the genre (different than a category, i feel) ..i just appreciate when a Trans vid makes it obvious. show some pride, ..lulz.

  42. Badabing Says:

    The tranny vids don’t do anything for me, but I’m fine with them being on the site. With, what, five updates a day, I think we can stand one update every week or two that satisfies a niche I don’t care for. And, frankly, I doubt that anyone who downloads the TS vids really cares about the seven or eight latently gay 16 year olds who feel compelled to make homophobic comments about how liking chicks with dicks makes you a “fag.” Guys who are into trannies have, I’m guessing, heard it all before.

    Personally, I’m much more bothered by the fact that porn in general has been taken over by such a homogeneous looking group of women: Blond, boob-jobs, plastic surgery on the rest of their bodies. I swear, if you covered their faces, it would look like 90% of the videos produced starred the same three women. Which is why, even though I’ve never been much of a fan of Amateur porn, I now look forward to amateur updates (and “classic” updates) just so I can see something that looks different. It would be nice if VB could buy some content like that produced by Channel 69 (”Amazons” and “Big Clit & Big Lips”) or anything where “natural” didn’t just mean giant boobs without silocone.

    All that being said, there is enough here for everyone, and I love that the people who run this site look for so much feedback and try hard to be responsive.

    CNote, if there only exist three categories, which one would a hermaphrodite fucking a hermaphrodite go under?

    Categories are concepts used to simplify reality. Reality has no categories.

    Let’s put it this way. If I would like to see them, I would be subscribed to other site.

    Im not a tranny fan at all but if I’m gonna be honest I have browsed the titles and screencaps and I have even downloaded a few. If its male and shemale Im not a fan full stop! (period for the american readers) although I can quite quite happily watch a shemale with a gil Take this scene for example

    BTW Great topic Alison.

  47. Boots Says:

    Sturgeon’s Law applies. 90% of porn is crap, and it doesn’t much matter to me what my reason for rejecting a given video is. I don’t like trannies, but I don’t like big boobs either, or pure lesbian scenes or tattoos or a number of other things which I know others love. I expect to skim through a lot of videos before finding one that hits my buttons.

    I like this site partly because it does a good job of making the skimming easy: through the 6 initial screen shots, more screen shots on the “edit” page, and “view it now”. It doesn’t take me long to filter out what I don’t like.

    I applaud the diversity of this site, and I’d like to see more minority interests in the hope some of them do appeal to me. Sex is very individual and we all have kinks and interests that can be very specific.

  48. BB Says:

    ‘Regular’ porn basically involves a man fucking a woman on some level.

    Tranny porn involves a half-man / half woman person fucking, therefore it should be classified as another branch of porn. Just as gay porn is.

    I dont mind tranny videos being on here, but it does annoy me when Im eagerly waiting for a new DVD and it turns out to be a tranny video. This is probably the case for a lot of members.

    Here are two possible solutions:

    1. Whenever a tranny dvd is added to this site, also add a regular DVD at the same time to keep everyone happy.

    2. Make a separate tranny videobox website (like gay videobox) and update it daily for say $5/month subscription. Then offer a discount to anyone who also has a subscription to this site, for e.g. just $2 extra per month. Just like people who want high quality pay $5 extra for DVD quality movies…

    Hope this helps.

    I would like to see more TS on girl stuff. Now that would get some supporters. I think people have hangups with femdom (i.e., girls pegging dudes)…

    Thanks to everyone who’s contributed and please keep it going. The dialogue is really fascinating and I’d love to hear more peoples’ comments.

    one thing i gotta know,today i met up with Erica Campbell,and yep i have found the Lord,and yea i do mean the Lord. Now i gotta know can i still keep my membership. knowing full well that this whole site is possessed by demons.And we all know watching porn makes one go blind. How about it if i just watch with one eye? Alison would that work? Inquiring minds like mine just gotta know.
    I gotta go i got so many heathen souls to save. And anybody that don’t see things my way going to hell. Yep i walkk the path of the straight and narrow.
    Oh fuck it i can’t keep up the pretenses any longer,i think i go back to watching more porn

  53. alison Says:

    HotScooter – You’re a trip :) You wouldn’t believe how many unsubscribe emails I’ve seen that sound a lot like that…

  54. Sensei Says:

    As someone who is married to a Thai ladyboy, all I can say guys is if you haven’t tried it don’t knock it. For the record I know a significant number of guys that are into TG’s and I don’t know one that considers himself as being gay.

    For those of you closet admirers of TG’s I suggest you check out http://www.asianTS.com, especially their forums (you don’t need to subscribe to the site to become a member of the forum), where you will find a warm welcome from like-minded people.

  55. jaykay Says:

    Although I didn’t join this website for the tranny section, it’s still a section that I can choose to go to if I get fed up with the “regular” stuff I watch. I’ve never really bothered looking at the reviews as I noticed early on that people couldn’t play nice. Although I do read this blog from time to time (awesome job btw, I always love getting behind the scenes or getting closer to the people who administer a site), it’s the first time I ever commented anything here.

    If you notice, femdom-ish porn where a guy gets it in the ass with a dildo from a girl, or asslicking is something that gets more and more common. The step from this and the tranny genre isn’t all that huge imo.

    A lot of japanese anime porn (straight) features girls with dicks without ever identifying itself as being in the gay genre and has gotten very popular from the audience.

    I wouldn’t mind paying a few extra bucks for getting more regular updated transexual vids, if it would ever come. Either in a seperate section or whatever you decide.

  56. Jambi Says:

    I think rope is right, its always the same big mouths complaining about any video that is not straight sex/one on one vanilla flavor porn, now i dont want to watch tranny stuff but i bet there are a lot of peeps that do and im not going to hate on them for watching what they enjoy. Personally i like the rough stuff and anal but every time theres the same people in the reviews going on about how badly the women are treated and how people that like it are gay or hate women, the funny thing is my gf loves the rough stuff more than me, try to get her to watch tame porn and she is not interested. Anyway i think you should have regular polls to see what everybody wants not just the same old moaners.

  57. MrTolerant Says:

    As a straight guy, I’m going to have to agree with a few of the other reviewers in saying that porn is fantasy material that allows you to explore outlets you may not normally have in your day to day life. I’m a very big fan of T/S porn because it allows you to see something that normally isn’t what you’d behold, for instance, a gorgeous woman with a large member having her way with another woman. My favorite is not too far from ropeadope’s but with a little addition. I like, the sadly not too often seen, daisy chain t/s porn. Male-TS-Female is what sparks my intrigue. I think the main reason people complain so violently about the t/s porn is they’re afraid they may like it, while the people to whom it simply does not appeal, just wait for the next posting.

  58. starfucker Says:

    I have to agree with MrTolerant. “I think the main reason people complain so violently about the t/s porn is they’re afraid they may like it, while the people to whom it simply does not appeal, just wait for the next posting”. All you dudes who complain about ts or dp scenes crack me up. Watching a video of a guy fucking a girl is kinda gay to begin with. You don’t need 2 dicks or a tranny to make it so. maybe all you haters should stick to the lesbian videos or else you might turn gay. look out!!!

  59. DP Says:

    Thanks for the question. I happen to love tranny movies and have never had a gay encounter in my life, nor do I have a desire to. I think in my life I’ve seen so much porn, that transexual porn just gives me something completely different. Once I get past the ‘hey that chick looks like someone from my past’, non-trans porn gets a little boring for me, especially when 90% of it is pure gonzo. Plus, there is guaranteed anal and the t-girls really know how to suck a cock. I like extremely feminine looking tranny pornstars, with the more natural-looking breasts, small statured, tan lines, and make-up. I don’t mind the t-girl on male anal, but generally prefer the male-on-t-girl action. While I really love the brazilian t-girl flicks, having some genuine role-play scenes in english is also a wonderful thing for me.

    I’ve pretty much stopped posting reviews or reading them when you guys release a tranny DVD. The negativity and combativeness is something that I am not paying to read, so I don’t. I’m really not sure how people are threatened by trans porn, although most of the complaints seem to be focused on a ‘wasted update’ or being fooled by the cover. Maybe the “Transexual” tag underneath the cover should be placed in large red font.

    The few times I have commented on it, I’ve gotten some positive bangs on my comments. As much as I’d like to see weekly tranny releases, I respect that this is a genre that has a lot of hate, so a few months ago I wrote to you and kindly requested 1 quality tranny release per month. I like the releases that you have made since that point. I like the rogue adventures series, sineplex, colossal, etc.

    There have been some comments that all tranny releases should go to gayvideobox. I won’t join that site to get tranny releases because I don’t consider myself gay. I appreciate those that are released here.

  60. 4More_of_the_less Says:

    i have to say that im a straight guy who gets with girls
    and thats it i have never experienced TS/TG or Gay.However I would like to see alot more of it on VB as sum1 said before porns about jerkin off 2 shit u wudnt usually do.And if ppl dnt want gay on the site just have a seperate login page like xtube have.When loggin in click either gay,straight or both that way the content u want is shown.

  61. Damon Says:

    I have to say I am pleasantly surprised that members did not just bash the genre in this blog entry. Let it be known that I am not for or against tranny porn. I have on the infrequent occasion watched a scene on this site but am mostly not turned on by it. However I appreciate that I can watch some if I crave on this site. I am surprised at the amount of negative comments when it comes to videos with girls using strap-ons on guys and how it is lumped in many member’s mind with tranny content. There is no question that a girl and a guy having sex with the aid of a sex toy is straight sex which is what this is. It excites me the concept of a woman who wants to give a man as much pleasure as possible by stimulating erogenous areas more directly then exterior stimulation ever could. I would therefore would like the percentage of female with strap-ons pleasuring males to go up on this site. I have been previously subscribed to guysgetfucked site while being subscribed to videobox to get this content but found the content there to be repetitious but also to fuel negative stereotypes that it is painful, men who like it are more femine and that it is the same as being raped. More diversity is what is needed on this site not less.

  62. My2Cents Says:

    I personally like Tranny Videos! As long as they are good looking and are either doing other trannys or doing chicks. (this may be ignorant) but when it is a tranny and a dude … i think that sorta crosses my comfort line!

    SO MORE tranny videos please! I wish we could see 1 a week!

    p.s. ummm yeah how about we start a war against the overwhelming number of anal videos on this site! whats the number of anal videos a day! we must see like 2 or 3 a day?

  63. zarafan Says:

    But there’s one she-male whom I REALLY can’t stand: Ann Coulter!!! Her writings are more pornographic than anything on VB…. :-)

  64. chris Says:

    The internet is for two things. Porn and complaining. The people who hate tranny porn are much more vocal than the ones who like or are indifferent to it.

    I myself like tranny porn. More specifically, The “natural” breasted trannies (estrogen pill induced small breasts) over the boob-job trannies.

    I’m kind of an oxymoron though, because I’m a gay guy, but I love straight porn. Particularly with flat and small breasted women. (go figure)

    I hope I illustrate the point that everyone’s different, and I for one am glad that VB offers something for everyone.

    Great blog topic, Alison

  65. dave Says:

    personally, i love it. especially when a tran is f’ing a woman. i dont think theres enough of that. its like a chick with a strap-on, only better in some way.

  66. Ben Morgan Says:

    Got to agree with Rope. I like tranny vids and I prefer tranny-girl combos.

  67. pornluver Says:

    Watching tranny vids is something I’ve always had a “thing” for though I’m not sure why. Possibly because of the extreme nature of the subject and the “kinkiness” of what I’m seeing onscreen.
    Also, depending on my mood, I have to admit that sometimes I find trannys that get me aroused.
    I would like to see more offered at the site.

  68. ukidd Says:

    I dont find Tranny Vids offensive but I do prefer the Tranny Scenes with Tranny’s and Females more so than those with Males.

  69. Chief Says:

    I love them. What I really love is couple on tranny. It is so hot to see a 3some with a tranny and a woman.

  70. BB Says:

    Im not trying being offensive or anything, but can I ask why you guys like tranny porn? I really cant get my head round it and Im honestly curious.
    Lots of the comments state “Im not gay…” but you are watching a “woman” with a dick or a man with breasts have sex?? If I cut my dick off and had implants would you fancy me? lol
    Could it be some suppressed homosexual feelings? I believe most people are bisexual to some degree. Sexuality cant be that black and white that you are either gay or not, maybe tranny porn is a grey area where you can feel comfortable watching a man have sex and not feel gay?
    Or is it just the kinkiness of it that does it for you? Or have you watched so much regular porn that its got boring now? Maybe I will go the same way. I admit I am actually scared to watch a tranny movie incase I DO like it!
    Thanks for any replies. Again, no offence intended…

  71. dave Says:

    @BB

    why do people like egg salad sandwiches? i think its the most foul concoction ever invented. i love smoked oyster sandwiches with stone mustard. my point is, to question ones appetite is to question the idiosyncrasies that make us human. i like tranny movies. they do it for me. can’t explain it, won’t try to. i imagine they taste like smoked oyster sandwiches with stone mustard.

  72. marty Says:

    I LOVE tranny porn, I find them trannies really sexy (well, there are ugly trannies, but there are ugly girls/mens too !), they have something extra, which is cool, I’m not the only one, even some girls fantasizes about trannies…
    So that’s it… and I’m not gay, I’m bisexual, but loving trannies does not mean being gay, the gay community don’t even count trannies as gay people, SO if you don’t like transexual movies then CLICK ON ANOTHER CATEGORY, that’s it…
    Sorry if I lose my temper, but all that controversy about transexual / bisexual / homosexual juste makes me want to get out and shout loudly “let them live they’re lives the way they like it”

  73. papayaman Says:

    Dear Zarafan,
    Yet another very apt observation – although I dont find myself thinking of Ann Coulter as a shemale, I tend to think of her as being more on a par with the ghost of Christmas past.

  74. carsenome2 Says:

    TS porn is something I discovered fairly recently and it’s a fringe interest of mine, but I like all combinations of it, and the guy who gets to be the meat in a female-tranny sandwich strikes me as a very lucky guy indeed. The trouble is, to appeal it really needs to be the best quality movies with the best performers involved. The vocal minority who complain about these things will still do it even if you have a flashing neon sign saying ‘Tranny Alert’, so just concentrate on making any transsexual updates top-notch ones.

    Mind you, you could say the same of a lot of other sub-genres on here. I’d like to see more in the realms of fetish, particularly femdom porn where the women are into it and don’t limply thrust a strap-on into a guy’s ass and pretend to be ‘dominant’. It’s funny to see people complain about anything in the least bit unusual, when at times I grow weary of Vol. 20 of Oh Yes Please Lots More Anal Sex Thank You Very Much Sir, et al. But then paradoxically, some consumers of porn can be the most conversative of all in their sexual tastes. When you get 20 negative responses to a guy kissing a woman with his cum in her mouth, as though that was a really ‘out there’ thing to do, you can see how rigidly defined their view of sex is.

    Women with a phallus of some kind who really do get into it are a big turn-on to me, so that may help provide an answer to the poster above wondering what the appeal of trannies is. Actually, it doesn’t at all, as you’ll then wonder why they’re a turn-on to me, and I’m not sure I can explain. So, never mind. As I said, I like all combinations, but to me there’s no point in having a guy be with a TS if he’s not going to get fucked by her at some stage.

  75. carsenome2 Says:

    The only updates I feel are a real waste are those BBW movies that seem to be posted simply to provide the opportunity for smart-alec reviews – I’m thinking specifically of that one video with the woman on the cover who clearly belongs in the emergency room of a hospital, not in porn. And even then, that’s the most extreme example, I wouldn’t want to start dictating content entirely according to my tastes.

  76. BB Says:

    @ carsenome2; Thanks for trying, in part, to answer my question as to why you like tranny porn.
    I follow your logic in the section about how you like women with a phallus and how this could have processed into liking transsexuals.
    When you say ‘phallus’, do you basically mean a woman with a large clitoris? Does it become erect when aroused? I am actually curious to see this for myself now – do you know of any scenes on here which features this?
    Thanks.

  77. glacierkid Says:

    as a gay man i find offence that one would want to group transgender porn with gay porn. gay does not equal tranny. i personally dont care for chicks with dicks but hey who the hell am i to tell someone what they should be into.

    gay porn to me menas that there are men, not (as some of you put it so eloquently, half man) people who look like women.

  78. Triplewinger Says:

    I don’t like some of the genres like blowjob only, bbw, cumshot only vids, and others. But I can understand why vidbox has them because people like different things. But IMHO tranny videos are different. I expect videos that are geared towards heterosexual males on videobox. There is no way around it a scene involving two people, that both have male genitalia is gay. I don’t care how hot one of the faces of the people involved may look.

  79. gayJ Says:

    Like Chris, I’m gay and I like straight porn…almost exclusively anal and with the skinny, flat chested types especially. I don’t know if liking tranny vids indicates that you’re gay. Personally, I can’t stand them, so there you go.

    I like some gay porn too. But like every gay, I was raised in a straight world and, like many, I was in the closet most of that time trying to think only about girls. Whatever it is that makes me like watching a girl take it up the butt and doing stuff I like to do, I don’t really care! That’s why I’m with VB.

    (My partner, on the other hand, thinks it’s bizarre to watch straight porn….though, like me, he does like many of the dicks…!)

  80. sharpshooter Says:

    I’m a straight male, but i love the tranny updates, and i wish there were more, maybe once a week would be great. Also i’d love to see more american tranny porn and less of the brazilian or asian variety. Theres some really high quality high production shemale porn that is put out by american and british studios. Anyway, keep up the tranny updates, and it would be awesome to see more of it, even if its just one DVD a week.

  81. Tim Says:

    so why do we have two videoboxes? why cant there be one?

  82. BB Says:

    gayJ I think you maybe a closet hetrosexual ;)

  83. hmmm Says:

    I’m straight and I like them because its something different but I can only watch the ones where the shemale is very femine otherwise I can’t watch it…For me I digg them especially when its a really hot shemale with a really hot female dats a winner for me all the way…I know theres alot of haters about tranny porn…but don’t knock it till you try watching it you might actually like it.

  84. sikampret Says:

    I really enjoy the tranny vids, especially the ones where the tranny is fucking female, just my preference. I hope VB add title like Best of Transsexuals – All Girl Edition DVD from Devil’s Film.

  85. A Lurker Says:

    I’m straight, engaged, and i like them. But I’m picky with mine, i like the vids where the tranny basically looks like a girl, a very very hot girl, i hate the ones where they look like a guy, and only like it when the tranny is getting fucked and cums while being fucked.

  86. Ticl Says:

    Let the haters filter out tranny vids. Problem solved. I personally like to watch a little guys-on-tranny action from time to time. When I say action, I mean where they get pounded and manhandled ^_^

  87. Ulybnis Says:

    I like either of the male on tranny or the female on tranny, with female on tranny preferred. I’m not gay. It’s just the unusual manner of the transexual gets me off, and I wish it’d become more of a regular update.

  88. Izobad12 Says:

    LOVE the stuff!!! c’mon, all porn is about fantasy… how many real women take two…IN THE BUTT!!! How many women in the real world can swallow a 10 inch log???
    get over it! some folks like to fantasize about huge tits, bbw, trannis… something more or different than the day to day sex they’re getting! I may not get turned on by your kink, but the point is we both get turned on by kink, so lighten up!!!

  89. johnsmith44 Says:

    This is a really good forum. I consider myself straight as they come. However I found tranny porn about 5 years ago. It was mostly by accident. I was on consumptionjuction.com and I saw a few clips from trannytrick.com. I was new to internet porn,so I watched a few clips for humor, but then I discovered that it was quite sexy. I am not attracted to men at all, but there is something about tranny porn that stimulates me. I probably watch more straight porn than tranny porn, but I do like to have one or two tranny vids to watch during a session by myself. I also have a cum shot fetish as many of you do.I have questioned my sexuality numerous times in the past 5 years due to the fact that I like to watch tranny porn. It is good to know that I am not alone in my fantasy. I have never really felt gay, but I think that my ex found some tranny porn on my computer. I believe that she ultimately left me due to that. I have never admitted it until right now. I am not positive that she knows, but I think that she does. I wish that she could have been as opened minded about this as most of you posting on here. I was and I guess that I am still in love with her. We are from the South and it is not as socially acceptable down here. Oh well you live and learn. I am just more careful about hiding it these days.It is just a fantasy. I moved back to the big city after we broke up and I have looked at tranny prostitutes online.While I find some attractive, I can not bring myself to even go there.Hell Danielle Foxxx was in my town a couple of months ago and I could not do it.It is kind of like watching a gang bang scene. It turns me on, but I don’ want to participate in one. That is the beauty of porn. It is just a fantasy for almost everyone that watches it. I would give my left nut to bang Amy Reid or Monica Sweetheart, but I know that it is not going to happen.So be open minded when it comes to what turns some people on, because I cant do the whole peeing thing, fat girls,or black chicks, that i know some people get into. So don’t hate on the guys that want to watch a hot chick with a dick fuck someone. Especially if it is only a small part of what they like. I never in a million years thought that I would like it!
    Peace.

  90. bk669 Says:

    I agree with a few of the recent comments (couldn’t read them all!) in that I love tranny porn. obviously some doesn’t do it for me, but i love the t-girls that are feminine and hot with big tities (hopefully not a deep voice). but as long as they look like a hot chick, i generally love ‘em. i especially love seeing a tranny girl with a real girl; that way i basically get to fantasize about a couple of hot chicks but there’s an extra cock thrown in for fun.

  91. savage Says:
