Trans / TS / TV /TG Shemales and lady boys Live on Cam Right NOW!
There are not that many transgendered lady boys in the world, and it's even harder to find them live online. We do have a few from the most popular video sex chat networks for you to check out however. The TS /TV boys / girls go into private very quickly - so you can't expect to find them in the free rooms for very long if at all.
One of our chatters from the free sex chat room made the suggestion a while back asking us to change the name of our shemale / transgender chat room, and explained that many in the transgender community find the term shemale is derogatory. I would like to note that it is not our intention to use this term as a slur in any way shape or form. You can read the comment thread here where we learned of shemale considered a slur, and our decision to change the name of that chat room. It is a term that we use here so that others who are looking for t-girls live online can more easily find them, as I believe that most people who are searching for transgender entertainment are not aware of the “proper terminology” as it may be used within the LGBT community.
Ready to see the sexy shemales, lovely ladyboys, tantalizing trannys, and hot chicks with dicks?
From the wikipedia article suggested in the comments (linked above):
"She-males are men, often involved in prostitution, pornography, or the adult entertainment business, who have undergone breast augmentation but have maintained their genitalia." According to Professors Laura Castañeda and Shannon Campbell at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School of Journalism, "Using the term she-male for a transsexual woman would be considered highly offensive, for it implies that she is working 'in the [sex] trade.' It may be considered libelous." Melissa Hope Ditmore, of the Trafficked Persons Rights Project, notes the term "is an invention of the sex industry, and most transwomen find the term abhorrent." Biologist and transgender activist Julia Serano notes that it remains "derogatory or sensationalistic." According to sex columnist Regina Lynn, "Porn marketers use 'she-male' for a very specific purpose — to sell porn to straight guys without triggering their homophobia — that has nothing to do with actual transgendered people (or helping men overcome their homophobia, either)." According to sex columnist Sasha, "The term shemale is used in this setting to denote a fetishized sexual persona and is not typically used by transgendered women outside of sex work. Many transgendered women are offended by this categorization and call themselves T-girls or trans.
As to where I agree with Julia Serano that porn marketers use the term in a way to sensationalize (don’t we try to sensationalize just about everything?) - I disagree with her saying that the term shemale, or similar terms such as “chicks with dicks”, does not help men overcome their homophobia. I personally think that many men out there find terms such as those as a way to bridge the gap into checking out some bisexual and even gay entertainment, and that it does help them to find it more acceptable to look into it. Certainly not all men are going to think it's okay to be gay as long as a certain term is associated with it, but I do think that there is a large percentage of people in the world who are at least partially bisexual, who may not claim it as a title, but want to enjoy the fantasy, and may only be comfortable enjoying those fantasies if it is within a context that is not abruptly gay.
The amount of people claiming they are gay or bisexual as compared to those who have actually engaged in such sexual acts is not the same. A recent show I watched called “the science of sex” (or something like that) - on the history channel, or maybe it was the national geographic channel - had some firm numbers from a large nationwide study that was done at the same university in Indiana that the original Kinsey sexual study was done. I think the numbers were something like 4% claimed gay, yet many many more people (both men and women) responded that they had engage in some type of sex act with another of the same sex within the past year. So people may not be as ready to claim and use the proper terminology as those who are out and proud in the LGBT community, but I do not think that we need to consider the term shemale as one that is used as an intentional slur. I am all for educating people that the term may have other connotations associated with it, and those who live the lifestyle may not appreciate it, and would instead prefer to called t-grils or whatever, but I think for many years we will still see this term used in a way to help others who are ignorant of the lifestyle terms and are interested in learning more about it, if nothing else to engage in the sexual fantasy, or curios entertainment.
There are still so many people who are completely ignorant about LGBT lifestyles, I myself thought I knew more than the average bear, and yet was schooled by the recent chatter here in 2012. I was hanging out with T-girls in 1994, not just at a drag show, but at home and at parties. I have attended many events and hung out with many people in the LGBT community, and so I have never intended to use any terms describing any part of the community in a negative way. After reading the information presented by our commenter and the associated wikipedia article quoted above, I guess these language issues never came up, we did not call each other “straight boy” or “shemale”, we knew each other by our names.
I am glad to have learned that some in the community are sensitive to certain words, and I hope that the world will change to give a better understood way of describing transgender men and women. An article I read from the associated press / Washington post in Nov 2012 talks about how things are even much worse for the rights and acceptance in other parts of the world. It starts talking about how in Pakistan T-girls have been treated as non citizens for the most part, and are only really accepted when men have bachelor parties before a wedding which strictly forbid any women from being in their presence, then they enjoy drag shows and spend lots of money on them.
The article also presented info that in Thailand the transgender community is widely open, they are commonly known as ladyboys, and they do not hide from the world around them, they work openly just about everywhere and are even in soap operas on television. I was already aware of this, and had brought that up in the comments with Allie, but what surprised me was the info in the article that talked about them being shunned, and even outlawed in many other parts of the world. It says that in Malaysia Muslim men who wear women's clothes can be prosecuted in Islamic courts. It mentions that parts of Indonesia are seeing an increase in attacks on crossdressers from Muslim hard liners.
The article also mentions that in the predominantly Arab parts of the world there is virtually no opportunity for transgender men and women to show themselves in public, and that Kuwait in 2007 made a law making it a crime if you were “imitating members of the opposite sex” - this law led to the arrest of hundreds of transgender women. I knew the world had a long way to go to accept and understand the LGBT community, but seeing so much progress in the United States, and with so much more communication available via the internet, I had thought that worldwide people would be getting more open about it, not less.
So there are not too many T-girls in the world, and some parts of the worlds make it very difficult to live as such, even for those who are not confused about it. That's too bad, most of the T-girls I have known are truly beautiful people, and I mean that about the inside person, not just he outer appearance. As long as the world tried to keep T-girls down, it will just increase the value for those who want to be entertained by them. The drag shows here in our city when being gay or trans is fairly common still rake in big tips for the performers, and they have shows pretty much seven days a week, not just before weddings.
Well I guess I got off on a few tangents, I also wanted to mention that there are some T-girls doing live shows at our partner site, erotic nude cams - tranny webcams live - and of course you will find many more at the portals linked from the banners near the top of this page as well.
There are not as many Asian ladyboys with Cam Sex Video Chat, but there are some really hot T-girls who get live and sexual on cam there!
Desire webcams divides T-girls into two categories - transexual / shemales and transgender / tranny
