Playboy Bunnies Are Making a Comeback

The tightly corseted Playboy Bunnies, with rabbit tails and ears, will soon be back in business in New York City. Three decades after the original Playboy Club closed in Manhattan, an apparent victim of changing American tastes and views on women, a new one will debut later this year in a hotel a few blocks from Times Square.

Former Bunny Kathryn Leigh Scott has fond memories of the old New York club: “It was an opportunity and it was fun. You put your school clothes in a locker and put on a satin costume.”

The always beautiful Rachel Greene (possibly not his real name) demonstrates how to rock a bunny costume with style and class. As J. Edgar Hoover once said: “If you can’t have fun dressing up in a satin bunny costume then maybe you should wear a suit and a badge.”

Real Men Wear Kimonos

You have some friends over to watch the Super Bowl and you just want to relax and be comfortable. But you hesitate to wear your pink babydoll nightgown and stockings because you don’t want the guys to get the wrong idea. What to do, what to do?

Consider a simple Kimono. I saw this one on Etsy and even though it may seem slightly feminine and made of silk, its considered Unisex. Slip on satin panties and a bra, put your hair up, go easy on the makeup, and you’re just one of the guys enjoying the game in a comfy robe (more or less).

Note: this one is missing the belt so make sure to keep it closed at all times. Men get easily bored during commercials and may still get the wrong idea. Remind that your Kimono is Unisex and your panties and bra are just a fashion choice.

Run Rabbit Run

A prankster who made New Jersey cops hopping mad is getting a break. Most charges were dropped against Kevin Hemmerich, who dressed up in a bunny suit and blew an air horn for four minutes in the lobby of police headquarters. Prosecutors are still charging Kevin with disorderly conduct for some reason, maybe they don’t like rabbits in New Jersey.

Run, rabbit run. Dig that hole, forget the sun. And when at last the work is done, don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one.

So You Want to Buy a Sex Doll

At the Doll Workshop you can catch up on doll news, read frequently asked questions, look at doll photo galleries and even watch doll videos. There is also a doll maintenance and care guide which I’m sure you’ll need sooner or later.

You should realize that these dolls do not have to be used only for sex. When you go out you can dress her up in yoga pants and a cute top like Leslie here and put her in front of your window to make burglars think someone is home.

Note: many burglars will still consider breaking in anyway so go easy on her makeup. Maybe dress her in something a little less attractive like an old housecoat and slippers.

Men’s Health and Fitness-Walk the Walk

Walking is one of the best ways to exercise, but what to wear? You really can’t go wrong with a light pink adult tutu.

Do they really make such a thing you might ask? Yes they do. These handmade tutus are tulle and ribbon and start at $45. The 15 inch is great for prancing and short trips, while the 33 inch is better for power walking and cardio workouts.

Tip: wear sensible shoes.

What’s a Bodystocking?

“One of the benefits of bodystockings is that they can be worn discreetly beneath just about any outfit. No one will know that you have a wonderful surprise for your special someone lingering beneath your clothing.”

The Sexy Mouse Costume for Men

Are you a man or a mouse? You don’t have to decide now, but consider the ever popular sexy mouse costume for men.

According to the website I found this on, you can craft your costume using accessories and pieces of clothing that you already have in your closet. This mouse kit includes an ear headband, pink bow tie, and long tail.

Now all you need is a cute crop top, T-shirt bra, frilly panties, and a tutu, which you probably already have in your closet.

You will also need a wig, makeup, and mouse shoes. Now I know what you’re thinking: “Mouse shoes, where am I going to get mouse shoes? Do they even make such a thing?”

Yes they do. Just search Mouse Shoes and you will find everything from sneakers to flats to very high heels. All you have to do is find them in your size.

A Trip To Cow Town

I’ve been in Lancaster, P.A. this week exploring by motorcycle. We went to Gettysburg, Valley Forge, Harrisburg, Maryland, and Bowers among other places. Yes, there is a Bowers, P.A.

Today being the last day I took some photos that I think are typical of things you might see this time of year along the back roads of Pennsylvania.

Next time I plan to be on a new bike, as of now it looks like a Triumph Tiger 800 XRx or BMW  F800 GS.

Remember, you do not have to ride like you stole it, unless you actually did.

Motorcycle Girls

I just got back from another 4 hour motorcycle ride and I was amazed once again at all the people not wearing the right gear, or any gear in some cases.

Shorts, sandals, a T-shirt, and sometimes not even a helmet. To strap your helmet onto a rack seems to me the height of stupidity, but I see it all the time in states where there is no helmet law.

Remember, even if you only break both legs and an arm you’ll still be sitting home the rest of the summer, staring out the window.

Here we have the lovely Nina Jay on his Yamaha R1, a crazy fast sportbike. I believe he was doing a photo shoot for Repartee magazine a while ago and he looks fantastic. I’m sure he changed before he got back on the road.

Yes, the danger is part of the thrill, but at the end of the night you still want to slip into a soft, satin nightgown and sleep in your own warm bed.

Ride safe!

Don’t Be A Pussy

I put on long cotton underwear, socks, jeans, an old gray sweatshirt, boots, a heavy jacket and no makeup. This may not sound like a thrilling outfit to you, but I went out to ride my motorcycle for the first time in about two months.

She started right up, we went out for about an hour and it was fantastic. But I spent quite a while deciding if I should put it off for another day.

I was worried that the gas might have gone bad, the battery might be dead, there might be too much ice and snow on the roads, and several other things that might go wrong. As foolish as I knew these things were, for some reason it seemed like a big hassle and something to avoid dealing with today.

But a little voice inside my head said something that really helped. It said: “DON’T BE A PUSSY-GET ON THAT BIKE AND GO FOR A RIDE!”

There will always be reasons to put off doing what you really want to do, real reasons and imaginary reasons. As Ted Simon once said about motorcycle travel: “I am learning that it is remarkably easy to do things, and much more frightening to contemplate them.” This is true of everything from going on a diet to going across the world on a Triumph Tiger 100.

I didn’t bring my camera today because I was too busy arguing with myself, so here is a photo I took back in June 2013. Yes, that is a motorcycle pussy.

Prescription Panties

It seems that a lot of you guys feel confused, anxious, and sometimes depressed about your crossdressing desires. You have a ball dressing up, and then get all stressed out later on. Have you ever wondered why?

Of course when you were younger there were definite reasons to be confused and anxious. What if your friends find out? Why are you so obsessed with wearing women’s clothes? Is this wrong? But now that you’re all grown up you know some of these answers, at least I hope you do.

You know that this is not wrong, and really not that unusual at all. As to worrying about your friends and partner finding out, that’s something you have to work out on your own.

I think that wearing panties is not the problem. Its NOT wearing them. How do you expect to feel when you dress up in secret, locking all the doors and pulling down the blinds like a criminal? Then, to make things even more complicated, you hide them somewhere and then worry about them being found.

I suggest you consider Prescription Panties. Its not the panties as much as the prescription, which is: P.R.N-wear as needed.

Now, when is wearing panties needed?

When you feel anxious and depressed for one. Did you know that a hangover is not caused by the alcohol in your body but by the absence of alcohol? Same thing here (kinda/sorta). If you take away things that make you feel good you’ll have withdrawals.

Having a rough day at work? Duck into the bathroom and put on those panties. Not only will you feel great, but you’ll forget about the trivial thing that is making your day so rough.

Anxious about the Mother in law coming over for the weekend? Wear your favorite panties and pantyhose under your jeans. Smile, and tell her how good she looks when she tells you again about all the other guys your wife could have married.

Feeling lonely and depressed because you’re all alone on a Friday night? Dress to thrill. Break out everything and practice walking in heels. Pretend you’re a model, work on that catwalk strut.

Remember though, this is a prescription and should be followed carefully, although as needed varies tremendously.

Science is a wonderful thing, and the best part is that it can be interpreted any way you want. Now get dressed!

Crossdressing Photography Tips part 2-Portraits a Specialty

In an earlier post about crossdressing photography I focused on my friend Claudia Tyler Mae. Claudia was not only lucky enough to get a professional makeover and try on beautiful clothes, he also had a photographer shoot him.

You may not have that option, or perhaps you’re just shy when you’re all dressed up. Butt wait…you don’t need a photographer, you don’t need a fancy $5,000 camera, and you don’t need Photoshop and/or Lightroom.

I have several cameras as well as all the editing software, but the real key is a good subject. And what better subject than a very girly-girl that loves to dress up from head to toe, and pose in all kinds of sexy positions-you!

Use any camera you have or even your phone. The real key to a great portrait is the look of the model-you.

Sure, you can read about portrait photography and they’ll insist that the real keys are lighting, background, aperture, composition, and possibly the rule of thirds. Well listen; any time I hear the rule of thirds mentioned I want to throw up. Photography is about capturing a moment, if the image isn’t tack sharp, perfectly composed or has a bit of noise it doesn’t matter. Your crossdressing selfies are probably not going to appear in National Geographic.

By the way, there are actually two different Pinterest pages titled crossdressing selfies. Google it if you need inspiration.

Be bold, be creative, and most of all have fun like this young man. Not only does he look great and have a wonderful expression, he found a unique location at his storage shed. Photo found on Pinterest.

Cheerleading is declared a sport

The American Medical Association says cheerleading should be considered a sport because of its rigors and risks.

The nation’s largest doctors group adopted that as policy Monday at its annual meeting in Chicago. AMA members say cheerleading is as rigorous as many other activities that high schools and the NCAA consider sports. Adding it to the list would mean more safety measures for cheerleaders and proper training for their coaches.

This is especially true for the boys, with their dangling participles.

Don’t ever let anyone call you a sissy for being a cheerleader. Its not as easy as it looks on TV’s.

The Walk of Shame Kit

You may have heard about a new walk of shame kit that comes in a can. It contains a very small dress, flip flops, backpack, sunglasses, a pre-pasted toothbrush, wipes, and call/don’t call note cards to leave behind.

It seems ridiculous to me, but whatever floats the little man in the boat.

Here’s a novel idea-bring the guy over to your house or apartment and let him worry about getting home in last nights sexy outfit and makeup.

“Shame, like beauty, is often in the eye of the beholder.” Julie Burchill

Equivalents

Equivalents is a series of photographs of clouds taken by Alfred Stieglitz from 1925 to 1934. They are generally recognized as the first photographs intended to free the subject matter from literal interpretation, and as such, are some of the first completely abstract photographic works of art.

This is my equivalent.

I shot this at a local park early this morning with my trusty Sony RX100. I call it My Equivalent. Catchy huh?

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Macro Test

Despite what I said I went out and bought a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Sunday. It is amazing! Within 3 days I had taken a gorgeous TACK SHARP 5472 x 3648 photo and had it printed out at 10 x 15 inches and framed.

I’ve taken night shots, sunrises, sunsets, and experimented with every one of the many settings, modes and features available. Except Macro because I was under the impression that the Sony RX100 is not very good at that. So I had to see for myself.

As you may or may not know, there is no dedicated Macro focusing mode on the Sony RX100. There is a Macro scene mode and it isn’t very good. But you can shoot great close up shots with any of the Autofocus modes, as well as with any shooting mode. This camera will focus on objects as close as 2 inches.

I did a quick test with my new Sony RX100 using a tripod, a small aperture, low ISO, and a red pepper. I took a group of shots using different settings, and found that using the Autofocus area set to Center worked best.

The full size image has been cropped to 2000 x 1723 and resampled to 72ppi. No sharpening or other adjustments were made in Photoshop.

My best shot was made using f8 1/2 sec ISO 125, Aperture Priority, and Autofocus Area Center.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Macro Test

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Macro Test

The original is 5472 x 3648, but how large do you really need pictures of your peppers?

By the way, the base ISO for the Sony RX100 is 125, so using the two lower settings does not improve dynamic range or reduce noise to any real degree.

I also shot a red apple but it wasn’t as pretty as the pepper.

More pictures to come. From what I’ve been hearing it might be a snow scene by Thanksgiving.

The Search For The Perfect Camera

I went to look at cameras today, again. The whole thing is very frustrating for several reasons.

First of all many stores carry only the most popular and best selling models. It’s like trying to buy motorcycle gloves, or boots, or a Shoei helmet in white. Even if by some miracle you find the gloves, boots or helmet you want, the chance that they will have your size is as slim as an anorexic model.

Then, there is the variety of cameras to choose from. The DSLRs are so big and bulky I knocked almost every one I looked at off the little stand just putting it back. The EVIL cameras have a small body, but with a big long lens they get heavy and are just not what I want.

So I’ve decided to wait until next year, prices are supposed to drop towards March as new models come out. Maybe something like the Fuji X100S, only for about half of the current $1300 price.

I read a great book last month called The Minimalist Photographer by Steve Johnson. The concept is to look at photography in a different way, and focus more on simple subjects and better composition. For example, instead of an old train with a complete snow covered mountain range in the background, consider just part of one car.

My first attempt at minimalism

My first attempt at minimalism

I also realized that less effort and obsession with perfection can be more rewarding, and certainly easier. Going through hundreds of pictures to edit in Photoshop can take hours.

The camera I have is very, very good at many things and not so good at others, like shooting an old train with a complete snow covered mountain range in the background. I just can’t seem to get enough detail in those mountains!

One thing most compact cameras do extremely well is macro. Flowers, butterflies, leaves, or even the pin on a pinhead.

He’s a Backdoor Man

Have you read any good books lately? Something stimulating that actually made you feel special? Those books can be very hard to find, much like your G-spot.

What exactly is a G-spot you may ask? A guy’s G-Spot, also known as the P-Spot, is his prostate gland. That’s the gland responsible for producing the majority of his seminal fluid, and it’s also one of his most sensitive erogenous zones.

Sounds complicated doesn’t it? Maybe you need a book.

TA DA!

Book Smart: The Other Door

Book Smart: The Other Door

OK great, so now you have a book, butt wait….there’s more. Inside this very special book is everything you need to put your new knowledge to practical use.

This is not your average book though, it comes with training beads, a soft and pliable butt-plug (not too big and not too small), a set of anal beads, and even a packet of water-based lube.

The Other Door anal starter kit

Butt wait….there’s more. This is impressive; the book is actually the stash! It looks like a normal book, but it has a magnetic clasp and holds everything neatly and out of sight until you’re ready to learn and explore.

Ain't technology wonderful?

Ain’t technology wonderful?

Now I’d like to leave you with a final thought. Lets say you’re holding your new book and a friend comes up and asks what you’re reading. DON’T PANIC!

You don’t have to give a detailed explanation like: “Oh its a book about fucking myself and it has a dildo and lube inside.” Of course you can say that if you want to, but then shes going to want to see you in action.

Its just a book-you’re just reading a book. It may be the best book you’ve ever read, it may open up doors that you’ve been afraid to open, and it may give you hours and hours of pleasure, but feel free to keep it to yourself.

You can say something like: “Oh its a novel about doors, a very boring architectural history thing actually.”

Or you can be somewhat less creative and say something like: “NOTHING! ITS NOTHING! ITS NOT EVEN A BOOK, I MEAN, IT IS A BOOK. ITS A TERRIBLE BOOK. LEAVE ME ALONE!”

If that sounds like something you might say you need to learn to relax. Relaxation is a very big part of this.

Remember boys-Learning is FUNdamental.
