The Masker is an unusual addition to the shelves of transgender erotica. It is a dark, smart sort of literature that reminds me of Mykola Dementiuk.
Torrey Peters has written a story about the intersection of fantasy and reality. It is a story that takes an honest (and often painful) look at the many sides of transgender culture, including crossdressers, sissies, forced feminization, female masking, and transsexualism. It is a story of egos, attitudes, opinions, and stereotypes that manages to expose a little darkness in all of its characters.
Ironically, it is an angry conversation between a female masker and a sissy, brought on by the scorn of a transsexual, that exposes the heart of the story. Felix (the masker) talks about the fetish side of transgender expression as a gift, a sort of super-power, that provides the same escape or stress relief as alcohol, cocaine, and physical violence do for others. More importantly, he insists his sissy be grateful for it.
"You think it means something is wrong with you, that you should be a woman. Actually, you are as you were intended to be. Every transsexual I have met has wasted their gift and picked up so many worse habits to replace it. But our gift can bring us joy.”
The story is darker than I expected, with some moments of cruelty and betrayal that saddened me, but it is also far more authentic that I expected. The Masker feels almost autobiographical, and contains a great deal of thought and philosophy in so few pages.

It seemed like just another story of a self-hating crossdresser and his cruel, unforgiving wife. As much as I love stories of female domination, I do get tired of seeing sissies cruelly punished for something that should be a pleasure.
Fortunately, Shaun Putaine shares that disdain for the cliche, redeeming it with a surprise twist, and then breathing new life into the genre with some lovely sentiments.
While Scott's wife needs time to cope with the discovery, it is the lies and the secrets that bother her, not the crossdressing itself. Fortunately, her sister and brother-in-law have some experience with alternative lifestyles, and they are prepared to guide Scott (now Sallyann) into a new life as a sissy, while her wife assumes her role as dominant cuckoldress.
Where Putaine breathes new life into the genre is with the focus on self-acceptance. Sallyann has to recognize that she's the one being intolerant, that her guilt and shame are self-imposed. Once she does that, she can really settle in to her dreams and enjoy being pampered (and punished) as a sissy by her new Auntie, who makes a girl of her, and by her new Uncle, who makes a woman of her. The level of detail there, both physical and emotional is just delightful, as Sallyann really gets indulged in her femininity.
This is only the first part of her story, howver - it is A Sissy Story where her wife takes control.
Thirds: A Leather and Lace Collection is an altogether lovely little anthology, consisting of three interconnected short stories. All taking place witThirds: A Leather and Lace Collection is an altogether lovely little anthology, consisting of three interconnected short stories. All taking place within the same hotel, over the same night, characters come and go, taking us from one story to another. J.B. Rogers has really done something special here, taking things to the next level.
The first story, Just Peachy, introduces us to a hunky escort by the name of Kevin. I loved the interplay with his client - a wealthy older woman, way out of his league, who just wants to be used hard. The arrival of her husband on the scene is a pleasant surprise, and the transition to bisexual exploration is fantastic, especially with the little romantic touches.
Strictly Business follows that client, Joanna, as she seeks out a replacement lover for her otherwise occupied gigolo. What initially seems to be a simple story of a hotel hookup ends up adding two sexy layers, first as her erotic past is exposed, and then as a voyeuristic element takes center stage.
The final story, Room Service, finds its connection through a hotel employee named Stacy. Not surprisingly, this was my favorite story in the collection, a romantic slice of erotica involving a crossdressing husband's first public outing, his crossdressing wife, and the woman who dominates them both. There is so much gender bending fun here that it is almost overwhelming, but Rogers keeps it all straight (so to speak).
If you have yet to read J.B. Rogers, then Thirds: A Leather and Lace Collection is a wonderful place to begin. And, if you are already a fan, it is a delicious helping of the storytelling talents you already know and love.
Despite it's deliberately obscene title and rather suggestive cover, Diary of a Black Cock Hungry White Sissy is a surprisingly well-written story ofDespite it's deliberately obscene title and rather suggestive cover, Diary of a Black Cock Hungry White Sissy is a surprisingly well-written story of one sissy's journey towards self-discovery that is just as romantic as it is erotic. I fully admit to buying Part One on a late night whim, but Marci Wilcox impressed me so much, I had to buy Part Two as soon as I was done.
As Part Two of the story begins, Cole has already been initiated into his new life as a sex slave, and it is time to begin his transformation into a sissy. It is in this chapter that we discover the truth of his situation, and the irony of his offer to take his wife's place. As a gay man with a fetish for turning white boys into white sissies, Rodney expects far more of Cole than he ever would of Cole's wife.
Cole's transition to a new life is not an easy one, but Rodney's has several transsexual friends ready to help teach the sissy everything he needs to know. Half the joy here is in watching Cole slowly overcome his fears and his inhibitions to embrace the sissy inside, learning to accept the fact that he enjoys his new role. The other half is in realizing this whole story is not some sordid tale of sexual humiliation and degradation, but a transgender romance.
I know, not at all what you expect of a title like Diary of a Black Cock Hungry White Sissy, but this is a story of revelation and romance, with a suitably kinky happily-ever-after. It is a testament to Wilcox's writing that the tender, romantic, one-on-one encounters between Cole and Rodney in Part Two are far more erotic and exciting than the gangbang shower scene that concluded Part One. There is even more plot and character development here as well, with Rodney's past coming back to threaten them both, and a final, explosive confrontation that reveals just how far they came come together.
Although I had a few issues with terminology in this book, and felt the ending was really rushed (and unclear as a result), Gates of Submission was anAlthough I had a few issues with terminology in this book, and felt the ending was really rushed (and unclear as a result), Gates of Submission was an interesting story with some well-developed characters and a nice balance of fantasy drama and real life romance. Nikki DiCaro works a lot of elements into her plot, from the politics of divorce, to workplace harassment, to LGBT issues, to issues of friendship and romance, creating a story that is almost bigger than itself.
Russell is an interesting character, but also an exasperating one. He wants the best of all words, but often doesn't know what that means. Clearly, this is a man struggling with some deep-seated issues, and it is very easy to sympathize with his gender identity struggles, but sometimes I just wanted to shake him and make him confront the women in his life. Barb was probably favorite character in the novel, a true transsexual woman who has deal with her pain, challenged her tormentors, and come out of it a stronger woman. At times it seems as if she is more than Russell deserves, but precisely what he needs.
Sylvia was over-the-top, the kind of villainous, sexually harassing boss who can only be found within the pages of an erotic fantasy, but important to the plot. It is important that we be conflicted about her, a little aroused by her fetishistic power games, but horrified by the impact they have on Russell. Bethany was a difficult character for me, in that I liked the way she was developed, loved the initial twist surrouding her, but thought her final actions were too much for the story.
As for that terminology I mentioned, it bothered me that Russell referred to Barb on more than one occasion as "a woman who was a guy" (he should understand her situation better than anybody), and there were several instances of "transgenders" that bothered me (it is an adjective, not a noun), but otherwise this was a very respectful, largely positive exploration of gender and gender identity.
Oh my goodness, Meido was such a fun, sexy story! Combining fetishes for anime cosplay, French maid crossdressing, and absolute submission, this is aOh my goodness, Meido was such a fun, sexy story! Combining fetishes for anime cosplay, French maid crossdressing, and absolute submission, this is a story where execution is everything. There may not be a lot of surprises to the plot, but Lyka Bloom can build characters and set a scene like few others in the genre.
It all starts when Derek tries to order the perfect maid's costume for his girlfriend. Not wanting to go traditional and slutty, he gathers individual pieces online to create the perfect Japanese-inspired costume. When one of his orders prompts a bright red warning message that he cannot read, he proceeds anyway, assuming it is just your standard shopping car warning. First mistake.
He thinks nothing of the fact that the bonnet arrives in a completely unnecessary, well-decorated wooden box; ignores the Japanese warning note contained inside; dismisses the thrum of power that emanates from the bonnet; and decides to try it on himself. Second mistake.
With the bonnet in place, Derek's mind and body transform into those of a petite Japanese maid. Completely feminine, completely submissive, and wholly Japanese, he very quickly forgets himself and sets about cleaning the house and making dinner for Casey-san. After a comical misunderstanding with this intruder in her house, Casey eventually tries the bonnet on herself, and the two lovers share a wonderful night . . . before she convinces Derek to try it again. Last mistake.
I loved the magic involved here, and the shift in personality that Derek undergoes. Watching him struggle to remember himself, even as he finds perfect happiness and contentment as a maid, makes for a delicious story. The erotic moments are, as always, gorgeous detailed and sensuous, but this is really a story that works best in the mind. As for the final twist, even if you see it coming (as I am sure most readers will), the way it is handled really ends the story on a high note.
Although it starts out as a standard gender-swap revenge tale (only with a female-to-male twist), The Freshman's Curse: The Complete Novel (With ExtraAlthough it starts out as a standard gender-swap revenge tale (only with a female-to-male twist), The Freshman's Curse: The Complete Novel (With Extra Parts) is a rather massive, well-layered story of a romantic threesome and their wider community of kink. J.B. Rogers throws a lot into the story in terms of gender, sexuality, and fetishes, but it all works beautifully.
As it turns out, that revenge aspect is really just the catalyst for the story, although it does have significant bearing on what happens throughout. It is what transforms Jenny/Jimmy into a character we truly care about; it is what propels Sheila into a kinky kind of love; and it is what allows Mia to claim both her identity as well as her own happiness. The three-way relationship between gender-swapped cheerleader, bisexual submissive, and transgender sweetie, is (in a word) glorious. It is honest and sincere, with real emotion tied up with the passion, and just a much romance as eroticism.
On that note, I must say I adore what Rogers has done here with the whole question of gender, gender identity, and gender expression. There is a genuine fluidity to the whole tale that it is hard to talk about without spoiling the story. When it comes to Jimmy and Mia, Jenny and Manuel are never far from their thoughts. There is a lot of crossdressing, reverse crossdressing, and partial gender expression that allows them to better understand one another, and prove that their love goes beyond the state of their bodies. It is a relationship that could become comical in the wrong hands, but here it never strays from being genuinely passionate and respectful.
As for the wider community of kink, Rogers really knows how to explore that defining line between mere bdsm and true dominance/submission. Even when the story is at its most extreme, with rough, public, anonymous, sex, we are never allowed to lose sight of the psychological aspects at work. I don't want to potentially spoil anything, but there is a prolonged scene with Sheila in the second half of the book that is better than most erotic novels as a whole. It is extreme and taboo, with just about every kind of abuse and penetration you can imagine, along with some bondage equipment you probably cannot, but what makes it all work is the emotional and psychological transformation that Sheila undergoes. Powerful stuff.
If you choose to pick up The Complete Novel (With Extra Parts), Rogers has formatted the book with two ways to enjoy it. You can either read the two halves of the novel first, and the three short stories after, or read all five pieces where they fit in the overall narrative. Personally, I recommend the latter option, as those stories (especially the first two) really do have a significant bearing on the novel, and certainly add to the experience.
You know that old saying, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave: When first we practice to deceive?" Well, despite it being written by Sir Walter Scott oveYou know that old saying, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave: When first we practice to deceive?" Well, despite it being written by Sir Walter Scott over 50 years ago, I doubt it has ever been quite as apropos as it is in describing A Lie Within A Lie - The Spy. This, the second half of Ghostly Writer's epic masking novel, is almost bewildering in the amount of lies within lies, deceptions within deceptions, and masks within masks.
The first book was a fun story about masking, romance, and eroticism that really played with roles and identities. A natural mimic, expert study of human behavior, and master craftsman when it comes to masking and bodysuits, Dominic closed out that book with plans to follow Ethan to American - not as another stranger, but as his Aunt Gillian.
As this story opens, Ethan has just arrived home, and is anxiously awaiting the completion of Dominic's latest identity. While we are waiting for them to be reunited, we learn that Ethan's stepsister is a high-tech voyeur with a passion for disguises. She has never experienced the thrill of deception quite like Ethan has, but Nicole is addicted to the stories of Diane St. Cloud, mistress of disguise, and actually arouses herself to the scenes of unmasking in those novels. Her very presence in the house adds a whole new level of danger for Dominic, who must not only be convincing enough to fool Gillian's brother, but to escape a horny teenage girl with webcams in every room.
As you can imagine, this is a story that gets very intense, very quickly. In case you thought it would be easy for Aunt Gillian to breeze in, get access to her brother's office laptop, log in, and embezzle a fortune, the reality is far more complicated. Dominic plays so many roles in this one, often at the same time, that it is remarkable that the story holds together so well. There are times where he is playing the role of the real Aunt Gillian for Nicole's cameras, while simultaneously role-playing Aunt Gillian for Ethan, but doing so with Marla's voice, while speaking as Dominic. He eventually lets Nicole in on the secret of his masking, but concocts a whole new deception to hide the truth, and even initiates the young woman in exploring her own disguise fetish.
I love that Ghostly Writer keeps so much of Dominic's plans from the reader, only giving us as much insight and knowledge as Ethan and Nicole share. As a result, we share each of their fears and hopes, and really do have to wonder what the climax could possibly be. Of course, I love even more than the story indulges the erotic side of masking so intensely, really driving home the fantasy element of being intimate with someone who can become anyone. It gets intense, and turns very dark in the latter parts of the novel, but you really do get a sense of how much arousal comes from our mind as opposed to our genitals.
Admittedly, it is a very small literary niche, but I do believe A Lie Within A Lie is the finest example of masking fiction you are ever likely to come across. It is a story to be appreciated even as it is enjoyed, with more twists and surprises than even the wildest of masks can disguise.
Whether your tastes in erotic fiction run more to submissive sissies, elegant transwomen, or fetishistic futas, Kella Z. Driel has a flair for capturiWhether your tastes in erotic fiction run more to submissive sissies, elegant transwomen, or fetishistic futas, Kella Z. Driel has a flair for capturing the essence of each fantasy. Her stories are just that – stories – complete with well-developed characters, complete plot arcs, and (of course) erotic moments. There is a certain narrative style that connects them all, but each is shaped around a main character, whose feminine personality drives the telling.
Given that she pops up in all four stories, it makes sense that the collection opens with From Thomas to Thérèse, the origin story (if you will) of this pivotal sissy. Filled with a myriad of little details and nuances, it captures the French culture and language beautifully. Readers who are tired of the rich relative trope and the false promise of instant feminine perfection will appreciate how both the story and Thérèse so carefully develop. It is a story of layers, with each new revelation about the characters adding realism to the erotic details of their fetish club.
Keeping with the Thérèse connection, From Juan to Juanita tells the story of a nervous young man who is about to embark upon his dreams of feminization at the hands of a dominant Mistress. The uncertainty, the potential humiliation, the fear, and (yes) the excitement all ring true here. It is a difficult step to take, to give up so much control to a woman you have never met, but having a fellow sissy around to serve as an example certainly makes this easier. This one incorporates a little more bondage and discipline than the first but, as we all know, pain only accentuates the pleasure.
With Turned by the Brat, Driel changes things up slightly, providing us with a tale that walks several lines in terms of taboos. Here, the generic fantasy of the horny dad lusting after his new step-daughter is given new life . . . along with a crossdressing twist. It is probably the most ‘fantastic’ of the four stories, with the girls more sexually (and fetishistically) mature than we might expect, and a too-neat solution to the mother issue, but somehow it works.
Topping it all off, Sissy Camp is far-and-away the most fun and most feminine story in the collection. It is a bit silly and ridiculous, but so are our most girlish fantasies. Although it is a story about extreme sissification, with a strong humiliation element at the start, it is also an extremely empowering tale. The way Violetta comes to terms with her femininity, and learns to accept that it is okay to be a sissy, is really quite marvelous. It is such an innocent little scene, but when we see the happy, giggling campers rush into a toy store, eager to buy (and play with) the dolls they were denied as boys, you cannot help but smile.
What defines all these stories, and what makes them so memorable, is the very essence of femininity in each. Driel does a wonderful job of capturing the innocence and freedom of blossoming girlishness, complete with the mannerisms, language, and behavior. At the same time, the theme of acceptance and focus on sissy empowerment is wonderful. These are stories where our identity defines us, and where questions of gender or orientation rightfully laid aside, along with the discarded trappings of masculinity. It is okay to be a sexual sissy....more
Of all the stories I have read from Courtney Captisa and Claire Bear, I do have to say that Son to Daughter: A Mother's Day Special Gift is their oddeOf all the stories I have read from Courtney Captisa and Claire Bear, I do have to say that Son to Daughter: A Mother's Day Special Gift is their oddest yet.
The story opens innocently enough (and on a rather sweet note) with a mother's discovery of her 19 year-old son's crossdressing. While shocked and initially confused, she does some research before confronting him about it, and ends up taking a very supportive role in helping him to express that side of himself. It makes for a lovely few chapters, a dream that I am sure many of us have had, culminating in Connor going all out to provide a special mother-daughter Mother's Day adventure.
All is good and sweet up to that point, but then it gets odd. As the cover blurb promises, mom decides that she really likes the idea, and starts pushing Connor (now Caitlyn) into some rather extreme age play - right from diapered infant girl to sweet sixteen princess. The story actually goes even farther to solidify that mother-daughter bond, but the ending is something you must grow into yourselves.
Like I said, it is an odd story, but never icky or creepy. Despite the age play and some public humiliations, Courtney and Claire maintain the sweet-and-innocent feel, and do a lovely job of portraying the mother we have all dreamed of.

Fetish Content: It all begins with some convenient crossdressing, leads into some erotic pegging, involves some intense squirting, develops into a first gay experience, and ends with the promise of some female domination and humiliation. Fun stuff.
Literary Quality: Other than the fact that Charlie voluntarily adopts a second career as a sissy maid (and passes) much too easily, this was a well-written piece of erotica. There's a sold narrative, character development, and interesting dialogue, all wrapped up with nicely details scenes of eroticism.
Spank Bank Rating: This was one sexy read, with a little something to offer for all tastes. The emphasis is heavy on oral pleasure, but there's more fun to be had.
Overall: WOther than wishing there was some sort of explanation or justification offered for Charlie's sudden crossdressing, I thoroughly enjoyed this, and found myself envying his new life as a paid sissy maid.

That man not only knows hIt has been far too long since I last kicked my heels off, hiked up my skirt, and enjoyed the one-handed joys of Paul Zante. That man not only knows how to write a story, he knows how to write sissy crossdressers to whom we can relate.
Sissy Dreams: Chris & Chyna opens the collection with a tale that's cute, funny, sexy, and sweet. Chyna is a closeted fetish crossdresser who has a serious crush on the young woman downstairs. When she comes to him for comfort after a big fight, and he's still dressed in stiletto heels and white PVC, a rather amusing bit of slapstick takes place before his drunken neighbor begins playing the John to his whore. It gets rather hot and heated, but I loved the sweet way it ended.
Office Sissy: Company Policy is actually a continuation of a pair of stories that I had some issues with, but they're forgiven and forgotten here. As Steve prepares for another day at work, with some odd lingerie-themed instructions from his boss, the tone and feel of the story feels just right. Here is a man in an impossible situation, being pushed even farther, and blackmailed into a future he can only imagine. It's a dark story, but incredibly erotic.
For Hire: My First Time was, far and away, my favorite story here. Peter is such a cute little sissy, far too innocent and naive to be real, but exactly the kind of sissy we dream of becoming. This is a story that just heaps one surprise on top of another, getting kinkier and sexier as it goes. I will not spoil the fun, but know that a submissive sissy, a dominant shemale, and room full of bikers makes for one heck of a party.
If you’ve never experienced Paul Zante before, then this is a great place to begin.
