Base Layers

We went to the park this morning for a brisk walk, reveling in the beauty of January and breathing in the cool morning air. After about five minutes my friend announced that he’s freezing and is going back to the car.

Sure, it was 20 degrees, but I was dressed for the weather wearing several layers of tight, thin clothing commonly known as base layers. Most guys do not wear the right base layers to stay warm and comfortable.

A base layer should be tight fitting so it traps air next to the skin and insulates the body from the cold as demonstrated by this man. Don’t forget a warm, comfortable pair of gloves. Wig, lipstick and adorable necklace are optional but highly recommended.

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.

The King

I was looking forward to the Flea market/craft show that was scheduled to be held today on the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge. Due to rain it was postponed until Saturday October 15th.

With nothing to do and all day to do it, we took a ride to Lake Clarke. Lots of sailboats, kayaks and canoes out despite the weather. On the way home I noticed an interesting statue overlooking the water.

“Go back I wanna take a picture.”

“It’s just a statue Teresa. And besides, it’s private property.

“Just a statue? It’s a statue of a half naked man holding a spear (trident). And that man is a Greek God!”

Yes, yes, it’s King Neptune, but the light is bad and it’s raining. You’re really a bit obsessed with photography aren’t you?

“It’s my hobby and it gives me pleasure. Have I ever asked you why you like to dress up as a girl and prance around the house?”

“Well yes, yes you have. And I don’t prance, it’s more like……ok, I prance. Hey, after this do you want to run across the bridge naked?”

“Definitely not.”

Ten minutes and 20 pictures later we left and headed home. He was right of course, the light wasn’t good and it was just a statue. But one day down the road, when my doctor sits me down and tells me I only have 10 years left to live, I’ll probably look back on my life and wish I did more.

I’ll probably wish I took off my clothes and ran across that bridge with a good friend, not worrying about the rain or getting arrested. Its only life after all.

The Parents Guide to Buying Bras

Ah, if only your Mother had this guide when you were just a little girl. But even though you’re all gown up you’re probably still wearing the wrong bra. Did you know that an estimated 85% of men wear a bra that doesn’t fit properly?

Here are important answers to important questions such as:

  • When should my daughter first be fitted?
  • Why does she need a bra?
  • What should I be looking for when choosing a first bra for my daughter?
  • What’s the difference between a padded and a moulded foam bra?
  • What type of bra should my daughter wear during PE?
  • What if my daughter is feeling shy about having a bra fitting?

Plus four great examples of the right bra for the right reason. Be sure to check out Mish Online for great bras, lingerie, swimwear, and a very easy to understand bra fitting guide.

Teaching the Sissy to Focus

Teaching a sissy is not all about curtseys and spankings you know? Sometimes they want to learn new things, and I’m happy to teach them if they behave themselves.

Today I took my friend to the park for a lesson. He’s very good at learning and paying attention, but sometimes he has trouble focusing. So to make it easy we went and shot flowers with my camera.

Not only did he learn about aperture, but also how to work on a RAW file in Lightroom and Photoshop. He had virtually no experience with either but was very motivated. I promised him that if he took at least one decent photo I’d take him to the mall for a new dress.

These are two out of about 60 shots of all different kinds of young flowers. I don’t know the name of this one but I thought it was the prettiest. The first was shot in Aperture Priority at 1.8. Click on the thumbnails to see the whole thing.

This next one was shot in Aperture Priority at 2.8. A bit more detail but still with that dreamy effect you get shooting almost wide open.

I think these are fantastic photos for someone that drank a huge cup of coffee and did not use a tripod, but he had a brilliant teacher and more important, patience. The light was not great although soft light usually works well with flowers.

Later this afternoon we’ll go in search of the perfect flower print dress for him, maybe a maxi dress which are on sale everywhere now. Something like this wrapped front floral print maxi dress, which is not only sold out but its $90. Plus we need more cowbell, I mean purple.

Lingerie Shopping Tips For Men That Wear Lingerie

You’ve probably seen articles about helping men buy lingerie, and some might be useful to you. The only thing about these tips is that they assume you’re buying the lingerie for someone else, and this can lead to problems, especially when you get flustered in a crowded store.

Lets look at some advice from experts and see how it applies to you.

From Luisa Loveday Founder Loveday London: “My best advice would be to spend time finding out about your partner and her style: girly, bondage, soft, hard, light, bright or dark, and then be sure to match her taste as best as you can.”

The fact that your partner likes the exact same style as you and wears the same size may be hard to explain.

From Fleur Turner CEO and founder Fleur of England: “Is she romantic? Does she like silk? Does she like lace? What colors does she wear?”

So far this advice sounds great, but can you remain cool calm and collected as you talk about silk and lace while holding a pretty babydoll nightie?

From Lucy Litwack Managing director Coco de Mer: “It is important the male customer feels at ease in the store.”

AHA! This is the key. You need to be brave, have confidence that you can comfortably browse all the pretty things, and buy whatever you like in your size. This is intimidating for most of you and many never make it into the store. Of course you can order online but you’ll miss a unique experience, not to mention how great it feels to conquer your fears.

I have an 11 minute recording that I made specifically for crossdressers that want to walk into any lingerie store as easily as walking into a McDonalds. Its called Lingerie Shopping Made Easy and its now free.

Put it on your iPod and listen on the way to the mall. It will be like I’m sitting right there giving you a pep talk.

Remember, the only thing you have to fear is fear itself. That, and maybe having to fight a large woman over the last pair of adorable boy shorts that are on sale.

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!
