My Handout That Describes What 'The West Marches' Style Game Is. Open To All Feedback.

2020.01.28 19:35 JordanEBailey2 My Handout That Describes What 'The West Marches' Style Game Is. Open To All Feedback.

This is going to be my second West Marches handout. I posted my first one yesterday:
https://www.reddit.com/mattcolville/comments/euqhji/this_is_my_west_marches_player_handout_id_love_to/
Because my last post kind of blew up I thought I would post this one as well. Here it is:

What is The West Marches? (Summary)

My Inspiration To Run This:
Central Tenants of The West Marches:
  1. The West Marches is a style of play that encourages player led exploration. There is no regular plot; the players decide what to do and where to go. You drive the action.
  2. There is no regular time: every session is scheduled by the players on the fly.
  3. There was no regular party: each game has different players from the party. The party is drawn out of the group.
  4. Adventuring is not a common or safe profession, so the you are the only ones interested in risking their lives in the wilderness in hopes of making a fortune (Or you may have different goals).
  5. PCs get to explore anywhere they want, the only rule being that — there are no adventures in the civilized lands, just peaceful retirement.
  6. PCs have to work together or they are going to get destroyed. They also have to think and pick their battles — since they can go anywhere, there is nothing stopping them from strolling into areas that will wipe them out.
  7. In a West Marches style game, the direction is determined by the players and is focused on world exploration. The story is told by the characters and their actions in the game.

Players' Responsibilities

The difference between the West Marches and home campaigns is how the players interact with each other between games to achieve goals or explore the wilderness together. In order to do this the players are in charge of creating and joining games as well as making After Action Reports to keep other players up to date. As a player you are expected to do this:

Adventuring

After Action Reports (AARs)

It is up to the players to write AARs. Writing After Action Reports is a very important part of sharing information with the other players in the land of the West Marches. AARs usually contain information on what happened on the mission and often includes the character's outlook on the mission. Feel free to make this an "In Character" report or an "Out of Character" report. Common things to include are: locations visited, NPCs encountered, monsters encountered, points of interest, events of interest.

Character Information

This an experiment. If I have to ask you to change your character because they are too O.P. or because I overlooked something please understand that I am trying to make the game fair and balanced for everyone. I don’t think I will need to make any drastic changes but we will see.
We will use the standard array stats (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8). We do this to keep the entry point the same for all players

Races

The current races that we allow are as follows:
Races: https://www.dndbeyond.com/races
Subclasses
I allow subclasses from the PHB, Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide, Xanathar's Guide to Everything. UA Revised Ranger is not allowed, except the subclass Beast Conclave. If you wish to play Beast Conclave you may apply the UA Beast Conclave to the normal ranger base class. Subclass race restrictions do not apply. For example, you can play a Gnome Bladesinger. I am treating Xanathar's as a playtest, if any of these subclasses too overpowered I might ask you to rebuild your character.
Eberron and Critical Role is not included.
Classes: https://www.dndbeyond.com/classes
Things I watched and read (This is only if you’re interested:)

2019.11.29 00:04 x3Jazzyx3 Not trans but thank you

Hello! Since it’s thanksgiving I thought I would say thank you to this community, I am not transgender however my girlfriend is MtoF (I think that’s how it goes) She didn’t tell me until a little after 2 years of dating and while she was afraid to tell me she could come to places like this and feel accepted. I still don’t fully understand what is going on through her head and the daily struggles she faces but I love her and she is my best friend and I’m glad that she was finally able to come out to a lot of her friends and she feels okay to be herself. So thank you for just being supportive and encouraging others 🙂

2019.08.18 23:36 V2Blast The new Eberron book by WotC is now listed on Amazon: "Eberron: Rising from the Last War (D&D Campaign Setting and Adventure Book)". Its release date is listed as November 19, 2019.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0786966890/
Explore the lands of Eberron in this campaign sourcebook for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.
This book provides everything players and Dungeon Masters need to play Dungeons & Dragons in Eberron—a war-torn world filled with magic-fueled technology, airships and lightning trains, where noir-inspired mystery meets swashbuckling adventure. Will Eberron enter a prosperous new age or will the shadow of war descend once again?
  • Dive straight into your pulp adventures with easy-to-use locations, complete with maps of floating castles, skyscrapers, and more.
  • Explore Sharn, a city of skyscrapers, airships, and noirish intrigue and a crossroads for the world’s war-ravaged peoples.
  • Include a campaign for characters venturing into the Mournland, a mist-cloaked, corpse-littered land twisted by magic.
  • Meld magic and invention to craft objects of wonder as an artificer—the first official class to be released for fifth edition D&D since the Player’s Handbook.
  • Flesh out your characters with a new D&D game element called a group patron—a background for your whole party.
  • Explore 16 new race/subrace options including dragonmarks, which magically transform certain members of the races in the Player’s Handbook.
  • Confront horrific monsters born from the world’s devastating wars.
EDIT: The book's been officially announced now, so there's a bit more info out about it.
There's a product page on WotC's website here: https://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/eberron
It shows off this beautiful alternate cover by Vance Kelly, who also did the MTOF alt-cover (alt-cover version only available at game stores): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ECWHqFcU4AAvUYP?format=jpg&name=large
The standard cover is by Ben Oliver, who apparently did the covers for Curse of Strahd and Tomb of Annihilation.
Adam Bradford goes over how WGTE content interacts with content from this new book for those who own one or the other on D&D Beyond in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNTeJCoY6BE
A summary from Twitter: https://twitter.com/DnDBeyond/status/1163508557121298432
TL;DW If you own content (like a race, spell, magic item, feat, etc.) on DDB, you will always get the most up-to-date version. Ex. If you own a warforged from Wayfinder's, if Rising from the Last War updates the race, your Wayfinder's copy of the race will reflect the updates.
With the above in mind, Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron and Eberron: Rising from the Last War are separate purchases everywhere they are sold.
And in response to a question about content overlap: https://twitter.com/DnDBeyond/status/1163515110251474945
In the event that the new release contains everything that was in Wayfinders, would there be any discount for purchasing the new Eberron book?
We have 100% confirmation that what you describe is not the case - Rising from the Last War will not contain everything that was in Wayfinder's. They are two separate products.
Jeremy Crawford talks about the playable races here: https://twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/1163510004353081344
The official versions of several playable races appear in "Eberron: Rising from the Last War":
  • Warforged
  • Changelings
  • Kalashtar
  • Shifters
The book also contains playable goblins, bugbears, hobgoblins, and orcs.
In response to a question about whether the last few are reprints from Volo's: https://twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/1163511538650505216
The playable orc in "Eberron" is a bit different from the orc in "Volo's Guide to Monster's."
The playable goblinoids in "Eberron" use the same traits as the ones in "Volo's."
And for AL players asking about artificers: https://twitter.com/DnD_AdvLeague/status/1163530378734424067
The Artificer will be a valid class choice for Eberron characters.
EDIT 2: Some more info...
About the book's style/organization: https://twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/1163846221062033409
"Eberron: Rising from the Last War" has nearly a hundred pages on building adventures in Khorvaire, the continent scarred by the Last War. That chapter includes a 1st-level adventure in the towering city of Sharn. [...] It's a new adventure.
About the cover: https://twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/1163861437376151552
I'm happy you're excited! I'm excited for everyone to see the goodies we've cooked up.
And that's not the cover. It's an interior illustration serving as a placeholder.
Now that's big news for everyone complaining about the cover. Makes sense, given that the full interior illustration looks a lot more natural in its full width. He adds:
That warforged has customized itself in unusual ways. Each warforged can alter how it looks. That said, the book has plenty of traditional-looking warforged.
That warforged hasn't removed [its ghulra].
EDIT 2: Greg Tito previewed the new book on D&D News on 8/20: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HZ7ZSA_7EU
Summarized here: https://www.enworld.org/threads/greg-tito-gives-first-look-at-eberron-rising-from-the-last-war.666850/
WotC's Greg Tito in this week's D&D News had some information to drop on the upcoming book, Eberron: Rising from the Last War, including a wallpaper background for his show, and a first look at the back of the special edition cover.
  • The artificer in this book has 3 subclasses (unnamed): WotC's Jeremy Crawford had said previously that the alchemist was the low scorer of the last batch, so that might not have made the cut.
  • Group patrons excite Greg Tito, a traditional quest giver who adopts the adventuring party is the background, but now with weighty mechanics: used the example of being a team working for a University.
  • Eberron creator Keith Baker contributed a lot to this book, Jeremy Crawford was the lead, James Wyatt also worked on the book, as did a number of freelancers.
  • There is a chapter that is a Gazetteer of Sharn.
If anyone has a link to information not mentioned here, let me know and I'll edit it in!

2019.01.25 15:51 mz4250 Tomb of Annihilation - 3D Printed! A six month project I'm proud to share with you all!

Hello friends! In this gallery I present to you all the interesting creatures from the amazing D&D book "Tomb of Annihilation", 3D modeled and printed by myself! The link to the free stl files for each creature is under each image if you'd like to 3D print your own. I modeled them all in Blender. I printed the small and medium sized creatures with resin, and the big ones with PLA.
This is a project I started six months ago and I'm pretty happy with how it came out! Your feedback and comments are appreciated. My next project will now be the book "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes". I think MTOF will be my greatest challenge to date, given the insane amount of detail needed to pull those off. But I'm ready. Oh so ready.
In calse you haven't seen my works before, I've been 3D modeling and printing my own DnD minis for the past four years. I always share the files for free. Here are my galleies so far, with free access to the files under each image:
Monster Manual A-Z
Appendix A
Appendix B
Updated Chromatic Dragons
"Princes of the Apocalypse"
"Out of the Abysss"
"Curse of Strahd"
"Storm King's Thunder"
You asked for them so I modeled them!
The Acquisitions Incorporated Cast
"Volo's Guide to Monsters"
"Tales from the Yawning portal"
Tiamat!
Bahamut!
Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The Nightman Cometh 3D printed D&D minis!
The "Dice, Camera, Action!" Cast
Time to start MTOF! My patreon is here if you'd like to support my efforts and have access to my Google Drive with all my files. See you all around!

2019.01.09 19:31 Hokiloki8 I am sooo confused about Abyssal Tiefling, Old UA and Tiefling Subrace in general, help :(

So I am working on an Excel Sheet that has all the playable and official races of DnD (up to date). I had no problems with any other race since most originated from released, official books or at least didn't change since their release.
But once I got to Tieflings I got so confused, I just researched for 2 hours and I can't really say I am smarter now..
Sooo here are my questions... :
  1. How many subraces do Tieflings officially have at the moment?
  2. After the release of MToF, does every Devil Bloodline count as a subrace? (So they have the most with like 12 subraces??)
  3. Is the Abyssal Tiefling still "official"? Or has it never been? Since it originates from UA:TOBM (2015)
  4. Did the UA:Fiendish Options (2017) "overwrite" the previous UA?
  5. Did MToF then also "overwrite" the previous UAs?
  6. How does one select a subrace with Tiefling? Can I be Variant, Feral and of a devil bloodline?
Like.. there is so much, all over the place, in multiple different books and I dont know how I haven't found a single post on reddit or another forum about any of my questions. I feel like I am the only person who doesn't get it xD
So please, if anyone can clear up some of the questions I'd be very grateful haha

2018.10.17 03:20 CGEmmett Bisexual vs. Pansexual? (Differences, not a battle)

What is the real difference between being bisexual and pansexual? When I googled it, it specified that pansexual implies there are more than two genders. I believe gender isn't always binary, but I still identify as bi. I guess I don't really see the difference between the two, does that mean bi people have to believe in a binary gender system? Do pan people like all genders equally? Like for pan people it doesn't matter at all? Because that's not me either, I usually have preferences.
I would date people who identify as something other than M/F including trans people. But I don't get why that would require a distinction, I mean a MtoF person is really just female when it comes to gender. Does that mean I'm pan? Would it be pan erasure if I called myself bi because I didn't want to explain my sexuality to everyone who didn't know what pan meant?
Sorry if this is vague and confusing, I hope you guys get me.

ASIC turns MEMS scanner into lidar
May 16, 2018 // By Peter Clarke
MicroVision has provides samples of the ASIC for customer evaluation.
The MicroVision Time-of-Flight (MToF) ASIC was developed on a high-performance RF process. The company is working on lidar sensors with point cloud densities of 5 million to 20 million points per second in resolutions of approximately 720 vertical lines. The products are expected to be available in volume production early in 2019.
"Our MTOF ASICS represent a tangible step forward in our goal to bring small, inexpensive lidar-based products to the consumer, smart home, and automotive markets. Our interactive projector for IoT applications, and our consumer lidar for smart home and office applications will use these ASICS," said Perry Mulligan, MicroVision’s CEO, in a statement.

2018.05.20 11:59 Dr_Oatker amazon UK seem to have failed with yet another WOTC release pre-order​

Hi gang
I've been keeping an eye on my amazon UK pre-order of MTOF and recently it changed to an ambiguous 'we'll email you when we have a date' instead of 'delivered on or just after release'. This same thing happened with XGTE and it was an indication that they had been taking orders on stock they were never getting and couldn't deliver on. It's pretty bullshit.
I'm looking at ordering from the US store. Last time with XGTE there was a coupon deal on that meant that I didn't actually pay any extra for the international order. Can any US redditors hook a brother up with a similar deal? Money's a little tight now but I really want some of the material in this book to plan a campaign I'm working on so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also any UK gamers in a similar position? It sucks, and I can't justify the expense from my FLGS - they mean well but the retail markup is just insane.

With the release of MToF, I have been increasingly curious about the planes and What you could expect to see in there.
There are a few references in MToF to creatures and places that I haven’t really found described anywhere in other 5e sourcebooks. (like the Marut and the City of Sigil)

2015.10.28 01:49 me_irl_wa_wa Used to be transgender ( MtoF ) dating advice.

Last year after 13 years of feeling like I was a lesbian trapped in a guys body, I came out as trans. My gf of 4 years left me 2 weeks later and after about 3 months of dressing up and going out as a woman and dating other girls, I woke up one day and felt totally comfortable as a man. I like feeling that I'm a man now but suffer from severe deprssion as I lost my gf for something that is no longer part of me. When I finally start dating again, should I explain all of this or just leave it in the past?

2015.09.21 05:33 jthrillzyou Comfortable and experienced Pansexual guy here, maybe I can help field some questions

Pansexual male here, very experience, and currently dating a guy. I've dated women, MtoF trans people, gender queer, other gender and non binary. I've had few serious relationships, but I don't fault it to my sexuality. My sister is straight and she has the same dating issues as me.
I know understanding your own sexuality is hard. But take it from me...
Rule number one, you define what pansexual (or any label you choose or not choose) means to you.
Number two, no one can define it for you.
Number three, when you feel you don't sit on any end of any spectrum, the world is your oyster and take it as a blessing. Because yes, some days you do get to "choose" what you like and other days you don't choose, and other days you just don't know.
Number four, rule number three may not apply universally.
Number five, and this is the most important rule, be yourself, because you can only be you. When I was first experimenting, I put on a more stereotypical effeminate character a few times, it wasn't me. Nor was being a beefy stereotypical masculine type. If walking around with a tree costume asking Australians if there is a garden somewhere to take up root is comfortable to you, then be that. Because with 7 billion people, statistically there are at least a few people that dig that. I put right on my dating apps that I like weird people, because they are awesome.
Number six, there isn't any more rules, because unfortunately it is up to you to rationalize what makes sense and what you like and don't like. Moreover, how other sexual identities understand themselves likely don't apply because of how fluid it can be. That said, I've found bits and pieces from many sources about known gender and sexuality types can be relatable, when you piece it together as a whole. Perfect example of how different Pansexuality can be, I feel I have spheres of preferences that can be as specific as a body oder, emotional, dates, cuddles, bed fun etc. Generally I prefer Trans body smells, cuddles with Women, and taking a sub role with Men. But those preferences are often found unreliable, as I am frequently pleased in unexpected combinations of spheres. At least.. that is how I rationalize it, and I never know what the future holds.
Yes the village can sometimes be scary. It isn't, but it's not easy when you feel you are forced into one sexuality type. Just remember, a lot of this is self inflicted. Yes there are people that will stick this idea into your head, I know this because I have a very good friend whom genuinely believes I will end up fully Gay, from his own experiences. But only you are in control of you, not them. Overcoming this, makes any Village show it's true colours, a place of welcoming.
Last bit of advice, when you feel ready, put right on your profile for Tinder, OkCupid, whatever app you use that you are Pansexual. Because if they aren't ok with that from the profile, hiding it and reviling it later wont work either. I put right on my profile that I am (and I'm paraphrasing here) Open, pansexual, and Trans friendly. The guy that I am seeing was drawn to me because of this. He had a limited understanding of what pan was at the time, but his curiosity only drew him closer as I explained. We've been dating 7 weeks now.
So with that said, I'm sure many people are scared, worried, confused, or even just curious. But maybe I can help. Please ask me anything and I will try to answer. Please keep this thread a safe space for everyone.

2013.12.18 20:49 tabledresser [Table] IAmA: We are five hitchhikers who have used our thumbs to travel over 270,000 km collectively in 30 countries. AuA about hitchhiking!

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2013-12-18
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
Obviously, a big part of hitchhiking is the human aspect, but let's talk about vehicles. You've spent more time in the passenger seats of more vehicle types and makes than most. Have you developed a preference? Freightliner vs. Mac., which is the better truck? Strangest vehicle you've ridden in? Most luxurious? Smoothest suspension? Most likely to be driven by somebody who will pick up hitchhikers? Love this question! Honestly, any time a truck stops it's one of the best feelings you can know. Last summer I was in south east california and the sun was almost down. I was just about to go set up camp when a huge 18 wheeler pulls over. You always have this moment of frantic euphoria as you run towards the truck where you think to yourself "HOLY SHIT HE ACTUALLY STOPPED FOR ME". Riding in the back of a pick up truck is a close second for most fun. Got a long ride (also last summer) in a pick up from Arizona to New Mexico. Felt so good to have the wind in my hair as we blazed through the desert. Good times! Strangest Vehicle? Freight train, 60s VW beetle, minivan piled high with birdfeeders one time. Smoothest suspension? Trucks aren't bad, had some very nice luxury 4x4s which were great. Most likely to be driven by a hitcher-picker-upper? Beat up cars are slightly more likely I suppose. Pretty rare to get picked up by a flashy sports care. In general not too much of an obvious trend. Preference? Trucks are comfier and offer better views... but cars are faster. 80kmph vs 130-220kmph can make a big difference if you have a long way to go. Depends on how much of a rush or sightseeing mode I am in. However a car with heated seats is fantastic when you are cold! :) Most luxurious? Several high-end Mercedes sports cars or similar and I hitched a chauffeur driven luxury car. Most often the really nice cars are high-end busniess saloons with a big engine and all mod cons. A mate this month hitched two jaguars in one day(!) and a Porsche two weeks later. Suspension? Well, that would depend on the road. Some of the best cars you will mostly just see on autobahns etc, where you have no way to judge it. Most likely to pick up hitchers? In Europe Polish trucks are pretty good for picking up hitchers (especially if you speak Polish) assuming there is only one driver in the cab already. Other countries, moreso in western Europe and especially in the UK often cannot for insurance reasons. Likewise any trucks carrying flammable or dangerous goods cannot pick up hitchers, and will actually risk being stopped by the cops if there are two people in the cab. Trucker's rides are the best: so comfy, so much view, so much distance, some times a bed, and that oh-so-appreciated little-yellow-thingy that lets you adjust the tightness of your seat-belt (to the ones that have ridden a truck, you know what I'm talking about). Most luxurious: I got picked up by a few sports car, one had retractable ceiling. Not like I cared, really, though... I would still say a truck is the best because of the awesome seat, the yellow-thingy, and the bed. Trucks are nice but in America they don't stop much for you. Been in maybe 2 altogether. For regular vehicles, I've gotten rides in everything from oldschool Porches to the Tesla and everything in between. Amazing Chevys with 800,000 miles on them, a Jaguar with 3000 miles on it (the driver cracked the block on that ride, too!), even got to drive a newer mustang as well. I rarely ever get picked up by VWs, which always throws me off. Don't really have a preference for vehicles. Anything with space works for me! Most luxurious: One of those hummers. They have enough room for your feet to fit two more full on yous. Smoothest ride: The big rigs I've ridden in were really, really comfortable. The best trucks are the ones with two bunks and a driver who is willing to let you sleep in one of them and continue driving in the morning.
How did you guys get the idea to do this? What percentage of drivers do you estimate actually gave you guys rides? I think we all had different reasons. I was in Tasmania and there was no other way to travel as I didn't have a driver's licence. It was either hitchhike or don't go. Once I started though I realized how much fun it is, and was hooked right away! The percentage of drivers varies incredibly from place to place. New Zealand and Bhutan were the best. You'd wait 5 minutes max (Maybe 1 in 4 cars would pick you up). Mississippi and Western Ontario were the worst, huge wait times (1 in a couple hundred I'd guess).
A) A desire to travel and really see the country and meet the people rather than just out of bus/train/plane windows. Also, I hate long cramped public transport journeys and was aware that by making my money last I could travel further and for longer.
B) Depends on country, the area of the country, the weather, the time of day, how you are dressed, if you are alone or in a group, the spot you are hitching from, the number of upcoming turnoffs from the road etc etc. You have to be patient and you will often get a ride quicker from a small village with almost no traffic that you will with a city. That said, I have also been offered lifts by people before I even got a chance to finish making a sign or approach and ask them! :) Percentage? Anything from 100% some days to 0% others.
Free transportation. on average maybe 0.5-5% will pick you up depending on location.
I live in a pretty rural area, so getting around wasn't easy for a broke teenager in high school. Eventually I fell in love with the people and the experiences and decided with hitchhiking I could go anywhere I wanted. All it takes is a bag and some gumption.
Ride percentage strongly changes based on location. In Utah the rides were extremely few and I only got rides from people not from Utah. In Colorado they lined up for me.
My father hitch-hiked a bunch when he was younger. When I learned about this, it impressed me. I thought the adventures I would get out of such a trip would be pretty awesome.
The other side of it is that I had been refusing to get my driver's license because I believed we could organize ourselves as a society in such a more efficient way than by simply all having our individual car. I thus tried to opt out of the system by trying hitch-hiking as it created absolutely no economic demand that would stimulate the oil-economy or the car-economy (unless we count the (small, I believe) amount of extra fuel burned caused by my extra weight in a car). Nowadays, I wish I had my driver's license already because I would have been able to help out certain sleepy drivers and thus give them a pay-back, in a certain way. Hell, a trucker in Ontario this year even asked me if I wanted to take the wheel, but then he ended up denying me the opportunity due to my license-free condition. Ah, the errors of the youth! However, no regrets: the last three years of hitch-hiking have been totally awesome.
Another point would be the cost of travelling while hitch-hiking: the difference is so enormous you wouldn't believe it. If you adopt a rent-free life-style as well, you are looking at an extension of your trip possibly by over 200% (if not way more, depending on the current way you travel/budget). I mostly only pay for food when I am on the road: this means I can easily budget to around 10$/day. Actually, this year I decided to come back to Montreal from Western-Canada by going through the US: the whole trip lasted 32 days (I took my time to take a look at the wonderful National Parks) and cost me 200$... that's a single day of work as a tree planter. (But keep in mind that I also practice dumpster-diving out of disgust toward the horrible amounts of food that can be wasted... and for budget purposes as well.)
The last point would be about the travel itself. When taking a bus, a plane, or whatever, you usually only get to see Point A and Point B. Now if you think about it, hitch-hiking from Point A to Point B has many advantages: it gives you more time to explore the in-between, it lets you meet the locals and talk with them about their political issues and views, and they also tell you about all those little secret places that the bigger crowd doesn't necessarily get to see, and finally there is a chance for you to find a random adventure to be proposed to you.
For your second question, I am afraid it'd be too hard to give you a correct answer. A "percentage" wouldn't be representative of any situation in particular: "waiting time" is a more precise data to ask, if you want my opinion. In terms of that, I would say that I can wait anywhere in between 1 to 75 minutes on average (I mostly wait 30-55 minutes), with a fairly high probability of waiting several hours when you are trying to get out of a big city (higher demographic densities usually correlate with less trust toward each other). That and my love for wilderness makes it so that I tend to avoid big cities as much as possible. The smaller towns have the best adventures and people. :)
How do you handle safety concerns? As a woman, I would be paranoid about getting robbed/kidnapped/etc. I have met a lot of women who hitchhike alone and say they've never had a bad experience. They carry phones, a knife or can of mace, and let people know their route before leaving. That being said it is probably best for women to hitch in pairs, or with a male friend if possible. When I discuss with solo female hitchers, they are not denying that there is a risk to hitching solo, but they're not convinced it's any more dangerous than walking alone downtown at night.
I generally do not worry too much, though if my spidey-senses tingled I'd decline the lift. Besides, there are far wealthier looking people to rob than me! I do understand the worries about the safety of hitchers as we never know who will stop for us, and while some female hitching friends prefer to hitch solo, some will only hitch with guys. Again, this varies upon where they are hitching, as some areas are safer than others (often for cultural reasons).
Most of us dont bring any sort of self defense other than a good head on our shoulders. that is the only weapon which cant be used against you.
If you feel threatened and someone doesn't pull over you always have the option of grabbing their steering wheel and causing a wreck. they will have a hard time kidnapping you.
Never had any violent situations. I've always carried a knife but its never been anything but a tool. I've travelled with and talked to female hitchhikers and they also never had any real violent experiences. I can imagine it being much more scary for them, but females also tend to get rides faster since people tend to want to try and help them.
From my personal experience, the solo-hitching women that I've discussed with told me they some times meet jerks or perverts, but that those persons never tried to be forceful about anything. As soon as you identify their "little game", simply let them know you are not in their car for that and they usually either drop you, or drive you safely.
As a general rule, it seems like for girls, you will have to cover up (don't hitch with a skirt kind of thing).
In terms of safety in general, I have never felt threatened. People usually assume that a hitch-hiker is pretty poor, so robbing is kind of a ridiculous thought that doesn't come to their mind. In terms of being kidnapped, as TheWindAndRain said, you do have a certain control over your situation: when someone goes away from the planned route, ask them why, and if it sounds fishy, asked to be dropped right away (most of the people are aware that a hitch-hiker may be stressed a bit if they move away from the planned route so they will explain it ahead of time anyways)... and if they refuse, that's when you indeed want to turn to wheel, or use the hand break, or whatever. Realize that they have to keep driving safely so they can't concentrate all their energy on defending themselves from your attacks. Also, if you carry a knife, please make sure you know how to use it for self-defence: else it is too easy to be turned against you.
But really, I don't think you should be worried about that too much, though it's always good to be prepared.
To be fair, you wouldn't have much chance to talk to a woman who had a very negative experience. This is a good point. I would imagine, however, that these dangers exist in many aspects of traveling solo, not just hitchhiking. That being said, if you ever did want to try it, find a friend and hit the road!
Have there been times where the person picking you up seemed a bit off, and so you decided to wait for another driver? Or do you guys pretty much get into the vehicle of whoever stops? There have been a few odd ones, but nobody that has made me feel threatened. If ever I do feel threatened in future I will definitely not get in the car. It's a good policy to say you're not going to the same destination if you feel threatened.
Turned down lifts because of tingling Spidey-senses, though it happens rarely. I have also accepted lifts from what are called 'The Travelling Community' in the UK/Ireland (Gypsies basically) who have a bad reputation. They were mostly lovely, with one exception in Scotland. Was offered to go to a party with one set in Ireland, offered work by ones in England and other in Scotland saw me getting out of a car in my destination city and asked if I was looking for casual work! :-D.
Generally though we are fine, my way of looking at it is the assholes drive past. Lots of nice people too, but virtually no assholes will stop.
I have never turned down a ride that was going where i wanted to go. plenty of times i have gotten bad vibes and no one has ever tried to hurt me.
Yeah you gotta get a vibe for the people. Its really rare to turn one down, though. You can't go on visuals, either. One ride looked like an axe murderer but was the nicest guy with the softest voice. I've had uncomfortable rides, but never felt in fear for my life. People are generally good.
I have refused very few lifts, maybe 4?
Two of them were refused because they weren't driving very far (under 5 km) and the further point was not going to add any new traffic, and I was hitch-hiking at a very good spot (you never know if where you'll be dropped will be a bad spot, so some times it is in your interest to stick with a good shoulder).
One was because she asked me right away that I would have to split half-half the gas cost if I wanted to enter her car, and it's not like she looked like she was part of the lower socioeconomic classes. To me, that didn't sound like a person that I wanted to meet, so I just refused.
The last one was because I had been given 3 lifts over 1 km each (without having to wait a single minute in between!), and that one was also going only 1 km ahead, so I decided I had had enough of those lifts. Luckily enough, right after she departed, a guy did a U-turn for me and decided to go for a 14-hours detour to drive me to my destination.
EDIT: I'm forgetting a lift where I was simply not headed the way it was going.
What is the longest you've waited for someone to give you a ride? What's the longest distance someone drove you? Longest wait time: about 24 hours in the Australian Outback. I was well stocked with water, and I had a tent, so I knew I wouldn't die. If ever I started running low on supplies I would stand in the road and flag down a car. If a car sees you are in distress (or waving an empty water bottle) they will stop right away. Longest distance, probably North Carolina to Syracuse, whatever that was. Though I did have 1200km on the east coast. I think payne007 had a massive one down the west coast from Alaska to California or something.
A) Spain, 2 days. I hate hitching in Spain.
B) From near Nimes in France to a bit north of Valentia in Spain. About 700km, including an overnight stop in Barcelona. Also been offered, but had to decline, a lift from Poland to London (about 1200km). Had a football game to go to, so only went the first few hundred km with them.
3 days in phoenix. other than that my longest wait is 8 hours in kansas.
My longest distance ride was from palmer alaska to bakersfield california, 3,250 miles.
The longest I've ever waited was about 2 days. Finally got a ride by pouring out my water and waiving someone down. Had to sit on someone's lap for over an hour and hang my head out the window but a ride is a ride!! Longest ride was San Francisco to LA. Awesome dude, I still keep in touch with him.
11 hours, up in Watson Lake (Yukon). After that it's 9 hours out of Vancouver (BC), and 7 hours out of Winnipeg (BC). 6 hours out of Calgary (BC).
As you can see, it's mostly with big cities that you wait several hours. The Yukon one was because I wasn't trying too hard: I was reading, or juggling.
You can assume you'll have a ride under 75 minutes for sure generally.
This year, I got a few pretty (some times only potential) good rides: I had a trucker that went all the way from Hearst (Ontario) to Edmonton (Alberta), and another trucker from Oklahoma to New York. I also had a ride from Whitehorse (Yukon) to Kitwanga (BC), but she was actually going all the way to Sudbury (Ontario), and I had to get off there to go to Terrace. From that same spot she dropped me, as I was hitching to Terrace, I had to turn down another epic ride that was going all the way to California! That damned detour to Terrace was pretty awesome though: I met a nice family that hosted me for a few days and we went hiking around and stuff. Last year and the year before, I also had a trucker that went from Montreal to Winnipeg.
Really?! You just walk up to the locomative's driver and ask them? By that time, you are already trespassing, I believe, so the good old white-truck can bust you, no? There was no barrier where I was between the tracks and the road, so yeah, I just walked up and said "Sorry to bother you, I don't want to do anything illegal or dangerous, but I'm trying to get east, could I ride with you?" The guy set me up in my own cabin with water and AC. Sweet deal!
Jeez! Whereabout? Got pictures? New Mexico. Here's my only pic. Typewriting in the cabin.
You had the typewriting machine with you? Or it was already there? EDIT: Funnily, my only chance to hop on a train was right out of New Mexico, in Hereford (Texas). I brought it. I love typewriting and wanted to write about things as they were happening, as opposed to after having got back. It was a bit of extra weight, but worth it.
I remember someone posting on digihitch a long time ago about hitching with a typewriter, was that you? by the way I have heard from multiple people that just walking up the the conductor and asking for a ride does indeed work. Nope, wasn't me. There must be at least two of us.
Did all the people that picked you up fit into a particular demographic? Personality type? Not at all! And this is one of the best thing about hitching. The only similarity is that they are all profoundly good people, but other than that they come from all walks of life. I've had soccer moms, architects, physicists, a fashion designer, single dads, other hitchhikers, mexican refugees, religious, atheists, people driving to find themselves, a math teacher, a set designer for HBO, one of the merry pranksters, and honestly this list could go on forever. Because of the huge diversity of people you learn so much that you wouldn't have considered otherwise. It's a great way to introduce yourself to different worldviews.
Never! Its always such a variety, all good people coming from different walks of life. You never know who you're gonna meet and the variety of people broaden your understanding of the world around you. You start seeing every individual differently.
Most of my lifts were from a male of about 35-40 years old. - About 60% of those were self-employed. - 85-90% of my lifts had hitch-hiked at least once in their life. - 5% of my lifts had never picked up hitch-hikers before. - 15-20% of my lifts were from woman (ranged mostly from 30 to 55 years old, and the fact that they some times tend to be older is probably due to their motherly nature?). - 75% of my lifts had been in contact with marijuana at least once in their life-time. And 65% of those had been/were actual drug dealers. - 5% of my lifts did a U-turn to come back to pick me up. - Only 4 or 5 lifts had a baby in their car.
(This is, obviously, very subjective and approximate.)
I can't think of other categorization, but if you ask specifically, I could probably give you a number.
What's the most unexpected thing you've used your towel for? Haha, I loved the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy series. Honest answer: nothing especially interesting comes to mind besides drying myself off.
Hmm... Aside from the regular drying myself or lying on at the beach/park? Can't think of one thing, but other uses mine has achieved are...
Wringing with met clothes inside to dry them quickly (quick-drying travel towels rock), head/neck-protecting bandanna, to tie things together (when twisted into a rope-like thing), to carry stuff (holding all 4 corners), across the top of my sleeping bag to catch some of the morning dew, pillow/cushion, to prevent unwanted complaints about my sexy nudity, to block cold drafts from under a door, to create shade on a hot day...and of course as an emergency cape! :)
I came to believe that a towel is fairly useless. If you have enough clothing, you can simply use clothing to dry yourself out.
I always carry a towel in my banjo case! Keeps the snare drum dry!
I've always wondered. What about money for your bills? (School loans, credit cards, phone, etc) How do you deal with that while traveling? I have no debts nor contracts. I also hate owing money to anyone. When I am travelling I am usually on longer trips and thus have no rent/electricity/gas bills to pay either as I move out of my rented accommodation. Just day-to-day living costs. I have a bank account, so I can access funds whether I am in the country or not, so long as I don't loose my cards. Which I usually do not.
I usually make sure I'm square with everything at the homestead before I leave. I have very little, and it frees me up. I don't really have an address, I don't have any credit cards, my expenses are few and I like it that way. My phone and expenses on the road are taken care of by saving up some money and busking my banjo. Finding work on the road is also an excellent way to go.
I am homeless and have no bills whatsoever other than a storage unit and a gym membership to shower at, and even that is temporary. Any company that wants to collect a debt from me would find me impossible to contact or find. I am entirely untraceable. I never stay in one place longer than 7 months and often that means no longer than one day.
When I need to provide an address for something, I make one up.
I stay away from periodic payments: any interests on payments, rent, phone, etc..
I work as a tree planter 2 months per year, and as a cherry picker for 2 to 3 weeks per year. Then I pick up any job offered to me on the road.
Since I usually budget to 10$/day, if not lower, it is very easy for me to have no debts, and yet even actually build up my bank account for the day I'll be done with the road-life.
That bolt of fear that shoots through you when you're hundreds or thousands of miles away from home and you can't find your card! Ahhh! Or drunkenly put the wring code into a cash machine thrice when it is your only card, you are on the opposite end of the continent from home...And you have only €0.07 in your pocket. :(
What was the best story you heard from the people you were traveling with? Heard stories from people being abducted by ufos to someone supposedly hitchhiking and having someone pull a gun and try to shoot them as they ran. Most of the stories were probably bullshit. Everyone wants to tell you a story, or be told one. There are some good ones, one dude launched sattelites for a living. Worked with NASA. That was neat. One guy was musician and went into detail on some mothedaughter groupie hookup threesome. Are they true? I don't know but I choose to believe them because that makes life more fun. I had one recently who had dropped out of school and hitched from England to India when he was young. Great to hear people do these things, as it is far better to regret the things you have done than the things you haven't. Not that he regretted doing this! :-D.
Also I thought the title said: We are five Hijackers who have used our thumbs to travel over 270,000 km collectively in 30 countries. With the plane in the image icon I was confused for a bit. A few good ones come to mind. I had a brit pick me up in Australia who wasn't happy with his life in the UK, so he quit his job, bought a ship and sailed to Australia to start a new life. I was picked up by a 'prison architect' (that's a thing apparently) once who had amazing stories about every pub we passed. He had once picked up a hitchhiker who had left home at 16 in France and had traveled nonstop ever since. He was 35 when the drive had picked him up. An Ecuadorian man who picked me up in Louisiana had ran away from home (also at 16) and lived for a year on top of a bakery. Heaps of good ones!
Share a interesting story/experience! Interesting experience? Many of them, it's one of the reasons I hitch. I'll give one coincidence story, one funny story and one sad. There are not many sad stories, but I feel this story gives a good indication of the openness of conversations you can have with a stranger.
EDIT: also, sign or thumb. What do you prefer? What do you think gets more rides? I prefer signs, though sometimes when there is only really one place the road leads I won't bother. Like physicshipster I usually prefer signs, unless the road only goes to one place. Coincidence story: In rural Morocco, just south of the Atlas mountains. Passed the same Polish car and van twice in a day in rural Morocco, first in the morning in the same town as we had stayed in the night before when going to our hitching spot. The second time could see they were just stopped for photographs, and I knew we had about 5km before we were getting out. I quickly made up a sign in Polish on the (correct) assumption that that the car and van would be there soon after us, and going to the gorge at the end of the road. When the car we were in stopped I hopped out, grabbed my bag and while my friend was still getting her bag out of the car spotted the Polish vehicles. I held out the sign and saw the most stunned look on the drivers space before they pulled over and screeched to a halt next to us. Their confusion was compounded by me being a Celt and my friend being Lithuanian - neither being Polish! :-D Anyway, they too were going to Ouarzazate - our destination city a few hundred km away. They not only found space for us but also we went and saw both this gorge and another we wanted to see (the second we had not expected to have time to see, but it turned out they were going to see it too en-route) and we stopped and ate together. The driver of the car knew one guy in Ouarzazate whom he had met before (he did regular charity drives from northern Europe to Senegambia region of Africa). We had a CS host in Ouarzazate, so we were delighted to have a lift to the city. We got to the city and it turned out our host lived almost opposite the hotel our drivers were staying at. Shortly after we got to our hosts place there was a knock at the door - and it turned out that the one guy the Pole knew was our host! :-D It's a small world as they say! :) Sad story: Again with a Polish link. This lift involved a long conversation in broken Polish with a guy with his life in the back of his car who was moving to Germany to work to support his wife and kid. His wife was an extreme alcoholic. I felt really sad for him, I wished I was so much more fluent to be able to speak better with him, to be more comfort to him. I think it was gong him good to talk about it to a stranger, but I felt so sad for him. One of the truly heartbreaking experiences I had hitching. He loved his wife and small son so much, but was being put through the emotional grinder by the wife. He was welling up at times while speaking. I sometimes think about him. I really hope his life has picked up. He didn't even want to move to Germany, he just had to in order to earn a decent wage. Poor guy. generally thumb over sign except when going long distance between major cities.
Have you ever had any sexual encounters or proposals through hitchhiking, if so details? I ended up skinny dipping with a MtoF transsexual in California once. There was nothing sexual about it, but wow did the surgeon do a good job on her boobs.
Only once: I was hitching out of Oklahoma City (waited 3 hours there) and this black guy picked me up (the very first black man to pick me up in 3 years). He was maybe 35-40 years old? Middle-class. He was headed to a casino to the East.
We started talking about segregation (I had so many questions: I was quite excited to meet someone that had gone through it). Then once that topic wore out, he asked me if I had a girlfriend. And then if I had ever been picked up by gay drivers. I said yes, and that I had no problem with it at all.
I'm fairly open-minded, so I simply assumed he must've had a few experiences, so I asked him about that. He said he did, back when he was travelling with the military forces.
The whole time, he looked very stressed (I initially thought it was simply his way of being, and it might have been, who knows). By that, I mean he was changing which hands he was holding the wheel with very often. Anyways, he ended up asking me if I needed to take a shower, and that he could pay for a motel room. I had previously mentioned that I was open to the idea of sexual relations with men though hadn't been presented with much opportunities. That's why he asked me if I wanted to have some fun as well. He then proceeded to mention that he wasn't into "ass" but that he loved sucking dicks (as he said, "sex is sex").
Anyways, I refused his offer, and he dropped me at his exit. I still don't consider this to have been stressful in any way: as I have often said, no one wants to be forceful about those things... simply refuse will remaining open-minded and everything will be fine. I was actually cracking up a smile when he specifically asked me, thinking "well, it took 3 years to be asked that question".
Obviously, I eased him into asking me that question. It was fairly easy to guess that he was getting to that, but I didn't care. Had I not been so vocal about my open-minded point of view, maybe he would've simply asked me quickly as he was dropping me anyways. But yeah, I broke a few rules for when it comes to trying to avoid this kind of proposal, and I consciously knew it.
One older lady in Colorado. It was gonna be a cold night so I took her up on the offer more for the nice warm bed than the sex, but it was a bonus.
A younger, prettier lady in Colorado. She gave me a ride to her hometown and I wound up sticking around for a few days. Saw her again and we wound up watching a movie and going out for dinner. Next thing ya know!
In Santa Cruz I met a travelling girl from Ireland and we hooked up. We traveled together and she was a lot of fun to be around. The sex was a bonus.
On the other hand...
I've had a few guys proposition me in one way or another. Some even offer to pay me, but I've never took them up on it.
Sexual encounters aren't too common, but they do happen. At least for me. If you look like a movie star I'm sure it would happen more.
I have had a dozen or so propositions from men which i had no interest in.
Have had two opportunities to get with women on the road (maybe more for the subtle ones that I didn't catch on to) but my crippling social and performance anxiety meant that it has never happened.
That's amazing because that is exactly what happened in a scene from the movie Transamerica (2005) starring Felicity Huffman. Haha, never heard of it. Who woulda thunk.
That actually sounds like a hilarious story. She was great, we camped together by the Pacific and shared stories about our lives by the campfire. Shame I'll probably never see her again. Oh, I should also mention I only discovered she was transsexual when we first got in the water. A wee bit of a surprise to say the least, haha.
MtoF? Male to Female.
Have you ever paid for a motel room on the road? I like "spaghetti + tomato sauce + canned tuna + celery + carrot + garlic + onion" (all those things can be carried nearly eternally except for celery/carrot which you can simply munch on if they're getting old... also, that recipe is a perfect mix of carbohydrates/proteins/, and is cheap). Trail mix peanuts. PBJ sandwhiches. Vanilla yogourt + Granola cereals. Else, always keep in mind the dumpster diving option! Motels, never, although if I'm traveling somewhere cheap where a hotel room is 5-10 dollars a night sometimes my gf and I will splurge. Couchsurifing is always my first choice though.
What are your classics in terms of food? What is your average daily budget? Food classics - peanuts, bread, canned chicken, multivitamins - Patience brings you what you want. And also that you can learn to adapt yourself. That we are capable of doing whatever we want, generally. That it is important to do what you love in life. That psychedelics are seen too poorly by (or are scaring too much the) current society. That it's better to live by your own set of morals rather than someone else's, hence civil disobedience.
What is the most unusual pet you've encountered on the road? What has The Road taught you? What has the road taught me? People are good. Before I headed out on the road I had become cynical about modern life and the way it was turning people into money chasing pricks. After hitching though I am very happy to say I was wrong on this, that people are still good. Yeah, there are still jackasses out there, and yeah there will always be greedy people - but at the end of the day most people are good! :) Unusual Pets: Only dogs so far, though I heard of a guy who traveled with a pet squirrel.

Questions Answers
No he is not Gay. :( He likes women and some of the ones he dates have penises. The missing link you need to understand is Gay men are rarely if ever attracted to passable Transwomen. They like men. And above all, don't you think its up to the OP what his orientation is? I'm as turned on by a transwoman's tits as I am by her cock. Know any gay guys that get turned on by tits? I didn't think so!
> her cock Lol. I can't stop laughing right now. That is hilarious.
I like tits... Me too!
Ladyboys, huh? At what age did you say phuket and decide to bangkok? I'd love to go to Phuket, but I'd rather go to Pattaya.
I have known pre-op mtf people that were somehow embarrassed by their genitals, and wouldn't want to have them be focused on during sex. Have you encountered anything like that? Or are your girlfriends/hookups down with their junk? Again, while I totally respect everyone's personal right to choice, I only date chicks who are down with their junk.
Mac? I'm just putting in my time, dude. Also, Brittany Daniel is amazingly gorgeous. If she had a dick, I'd marry her.
Did they still have dongs while you dated? Yes. I should have clarified: Pre-op MtF transgender women.
What happens after they get the surgery? While I totally respect the fact that many of these women wish to have SRS/GRS, I'm only interested in girls who opt not to have surgery.
So... you're gay. I don't identify as gay. If I had to choose a label, I think that "pansexual" would be most appropriate. I'd rather not choose a label, though. Though I am still very much attracted to genetic women, and I am in rare cases attracted to men, I am mostly attracted to transwomen. Has society come up with a term for that yet?
doesn't pansexual just sound so wanky? Yeah, it definitely does.
Certainly you can understand why it would seem to other people that you are basically a gay man. You say that your sexual behavior is mainly "them fucking me in the ass and sucking them off". This is the behavior of a gay man with another gay man, and you're the bottom, no less. If it was reversed you might have a more realistic case; you would be doing something that you actually could do with a woman. Can you explain to me why you are not simply a gay man who has sex with gay men that may have surgically (?) added breasts and - presumably - facial cosmetic surgery and makeup? You make a very valid point. I can totally see where people would identify me as gay. The main counter-argument that I will make is that I am attracted mainly to WOMEN. Granted, women with penises, but women. I am very much attracted to the fact that they are feminine.
What, specifically, do you find the most attractive in transgender women? That's tough to say. I love how feminine they are, I love their dicks (insensitive, possibly, but it's the truth), and beyond their exterior, they tend to be amazing people. Every trans-person has likely endured a ridiculous amount of prejudice and criticism in their lifetimes, and I think that the fact that they still continue to go on with their transitions despite said prejudice is an amazing thing.
Do you bottom? I prefer to be the bottom ;)
Have you ever been pegged by a woman? No, but I'm sure I'd enjoy it.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaat. Yup. Deal with it.
Where do you find/meet them? The internet is a wonderful and vast place.
Fetish or coincidence? I don't think it fits into either of those categories. MtF transwomen are what I'm most attracted to.
Would you actively try and date MtF transwomen? Or is is just by chance that you have have dated a couple? As in have you known that they are MtF before you begin the relationship? :) I DO actively try to date MtF transwomen.
How do you identify a MtoF transgender?Do you consider yourself a homosexual? Do I consider myself a homosexual? No. Do I care if ignorant people like to label me as a homosexual? Also no.
How do you think they compare in bed to non-transgenders? Like genetic women, it varies on a case-by-case basis. They can be incredibly amazing, or absolute shit. Or any shade of grey in between.
What was your first experience with dating a transgender woman like? Also, it seems like transgender people aren't very common, so how did you find out that you were attracted to them? Sorry I didn't reply to this sooner. It was amazing. She was gorgeous, funny, fun to hang out with, and just an all-around great person. We had a lot of fun and she was a total sweet heart. She lived too far away to make it work, though, and I didn't have the means to move closer to her, so it ended. I honestly wish it didn't. She was one of the few people I've ever cared for that much. How did I find out I was attracted to them? I suppose it was a lot of little things that eventually just started to make sense to me. I can't really put my finger on an exact moment or anything.
Did any of the trans women you've dated worry about the possibility that you or other partners were fetishizing them? To your first question: no, that was never really an issue.
Also, were they more or less "girly" on average compared to the non-trans women you've dated? Or was it completely individual? Individual to a degree, but they all tend to be very girly. I mean, that's kinda what they're going for;)
How much do you respect the women you date? In one answer you said they were "very convincing" which I guess just seems rude to me... like you're saying they were good at passing for women, not being real women. How many have you dated, and what was the cause of each relationship to end? I'm not sure that I understand what you're trying to say. The fact that the transwomen I date are "very convincing" simply means that if said transwomen were mixed in with a crowd of genetic women, I think that most people would have a tough time telling the difference. And I don't see how that's rude.
How convincing are most the "women" and has your friends/family ever suspected something strange? How did they respond? My family doesn't know. They are strictly Catholic, and I'm not sure that I could ever tell them. Actually, I was drunk like four nights ago, and I almost came out to my mom about it. It didn't seem like she was going to be ok with it, though, so I changed the topic. The women that I date are generally VERY convincing.
Do the women you date have generally smaller than average penises because of any hormone treatments? Does this bother you? Hormone treatments don't really affect the size of the penis, but they do sometimes make it hard for a girl to maintain an erection and/or orgasm.
Have you ever been tempted to become transgender yourself? Nope, I am, and only wish to be male.
Have you been in a three-way with a biological female and ummm...a girl with a dick? No, but I imagine that would be FANTASTIC!
Are you wealthy, by any chance? No, I'm not wealthy.
Very interesting AMA! Do your friends know, or do you keep it a secret? I actually came out to my friends about it like 4 years ago. They are all totally supportive.
So i am also bisexual, and i find it really interesting that you are bisexual yet only go for "the complete package" so to speak. do you have preferences for buff women also? would a buff woman with a strap on be just as fun for you in bed? or does the fake cock ruin it? I'm into everything, honestly. It just so happens that the thing that makes me happiest is transwomen.
As someone who has been curious in dating a pre-op MtF, how did you go on about in meeting one? Did you use a website, go to particular clubs? I mostly use websites. Clubs from time to time, but mostly websites.
Have you ever fallen in love with a mtf lady? Not as of yet, but I hope to. One day.
Hypothetically: 1) a very feminine gay guy (who maybe even into cross dressing), but doesn't identify as a woman. are you into that? 2) a person with a dick who DOES identify as a woman, but has no tits. are you into that? I'm into anyone who I am attracted to, genitalia or gender aside. I just prefer MtF transwomen who like to be on top.
How do you meet them? Coincidence, or do you seek out transgenders specifically? Certain websites.
How do you protect yourself from STDs? What precautions do you take? Condoms mostly. Common sense helps too. If I get a random cut in my mouth, I'm not sucking and random girl's dick until said cut is fully healed.
I was under the understanding that transgender women wanted to be treated like women. You suck and they fuck though? They do wanted to be treated like women in almost all parts of a relationship. In the bedroom, though, some of them like to play the dominant role.
You truly believe it's not just a novelty? Since I've had a few serious relationships with transwomen, no, I don't think that it's a novelty. I really hope that I find a transwoman who I end up marrying one day.
When did you find out if you are attracted to transsexuals? I am a virgin so I haven't had sex with "normal" (I feel bad typing normal I don't know what else to call it) or transsexuals. I do watch transsexual porn sometimes, but I don't know if I am attracted to them. Can you PM about this? It was a long process. Feel free to PM me. Just know that it's not only OK to watch that kind of porn, it's GREAT if you like it.
Given you're dating a sexual minority, albeit a mainstream one, whats your opinion of other sexual minorities(outside of lbgt)? should they hide, repress their feelings or phuck da law? Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiX7GTelTPM.
When did you realize, or come to terms with, your sexual orientation? Around when I was 19-20.
She is, isn't she? :) OH. MY. GOD. SOOOOOOOO gorgeous.
When you are having intercourse with them, in the ass right, and you give them a reach around, when they come and orgasm they contract their asshole rhythmically, right, at least 3 or more times, how does that feel on your cock? Feels great. But normally, it's my ass contracting on their cocks.
Why do you like being penetrated, is it like a prostate stimulation thing and your orgasm is much better or something else? Prostate simulation is a huge part of it, and yeah, it feels fucking awesome. I've had sex with plenty of genetic women where I was obviously the one doing the penetrating. But I've NEVER had an orgasm as amazing as the ones where I've had a transwoman's cock in my ass.
I noticed something watching shemale porn, there seems to be a majority of interest about very feminine trannies but with huge cocks. For me it is the same, I enjoy watching that kind of stuff, but I don't get why I like it, maybe I am just looking for a "girl" that enjoys sex. Your best opinion about this phenomenon? Does the "why" really matter? If you like it, you like it! Fuck what society or anyone else thinks. Go with what feels right!
Have you ever dated a post-op woman? Nope.
Ewwww. Do you like cheese?
There is nothing wrong with being gay. there is nothing wrong with people who don't fit into man/woman. I just don't see how someone confesses thier love of cock, and gets offended when called gay. I am not saying gay is bad, so why be so defensive? I don't think "gay" is bad either. I just don't think it's an appropriate term to describe me.
