    Photomania

    This is a poll for those of us who like to see MtF CD transformation pics, with or without the "added value" of panty flashing, stocking tops etc.

    Bonus question: Why do you/do you not like seeing CD's showing a little extra?

    My opinion: I love art, and artful porn, but there are few and far between who can pull it off. In the absence of art or artful porn, I would prefer to see CD's making a real effort to present themselves as GG's in the moste tasteful manner possible.

    PLEASE POST A COMMENT!

    There is a time and place for everything. In this forum I feel that we are trying to put a positive light on our CDing and offer a site where non Cds can get an idea what its all about. There are other sites that are available to titilate.

    I see nothing wrong with a little stocking top showing if it's done in a tasteful manner.

    I wouldn't consider posting a pic without trying to look as much like a GG as I possibly can. That requires dressing to the "T" every time. Which I do.

    I certainly don't expect everyone to do that. But u can certainly tell the CDs that try to present themselves as authentically and as stylishly as possible.

    As u do, Em, I REALLY appreciate their pics! I KNOW the time and effort envolved is often tremendous!
    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!

    So who's the 12 that voted they don't like it? you can't comment? bok bok bok...

    I don't mind either way, I think on some it's very sexy and I won't name names, that would be unfair... I love seeing Tam in her little skirts and stockings... and as long as she and others are happy, who cares?

    I'm one of the 12 who don't like it. My comment is in the original post. I can't vouch for the 11 others.

    I really don't mind either way...AS LONG...as it is tasteful. There are plenty of other sites where you can get an eyeful, if that is your desire. In this site I like the fact that members present themselves well.

    There's no more to it than what I consider an art form versus gratuitous vulgarity, or somewhere in between. It's all a question of personal taste.

    I don't mind one way or the other. This site is a cut above the others and we should keep it that way, but, being a huge fan of the classic pinup, there's nothing wrong with a bit of innocent, tastefully done, cheesecake.

    I'll go with Jenni and Shelly on this one.

    Jenni: Indeed, getting an eyeful can happen on thousands of sites... Not what I would consider classy.

    Shelly: The Moulin Rouge is a favorite of mine. Knickers, yes, but it's more about the artistic "ensemble" than the thrill.

    Funny I enjoy taking photos and I post a lot but I rarely go out seeking to view other CD's photos... I love looking at womens photos mainly photos of their makeup... Guess I'm always striving to better my self in that way and in some twisted way.. I'd rather spend my time looking at what I'm trying to emulate than a copy of what I'm tryng to emulate... Weird huh?

    I just voted and I voted that I don't like to see "A little Extra".
    I think many people on the Internet have the view that cross dressing is all about sex and a good deal of pornography. They reach this conclusion because of all of the pictures out there that are readily available showing cross dressers with their ******s hanging out, wet panties, or even in the sexual act.
    It bothers me that due to this kind of stuff, many people are led to believe that this is what cross dressing is all about. This is not what I think it is all about and I dislike the way it represents us.

    I don't like the panty/stocking top photos. Not just on this forum but anywhere. It does not offend me but it does look tacky.

    For me -

    Stockings are kind of tacky. I prefer pantyhose, and seeing stocking tops just ruins the look.

    Panty - I wear them cause they are woman but I have no sexual thing about panties [I know I risk being banned for even saying such a thing]. Plus, as pretty as some CDs are, seeing her undies somehow reminds me it is a male underneath.
    It takes a true Erin to be a pain in the assatar.

    [SIZE=4]I rarely look at sites that promote any type of porn, I feel it is degrading to most women. When I look at pictures, I am trying to see how they did their makeup, hair and pose, not looking for odd panties, flashing of peticoats or anything like that. I never see real women showing such things. To me it is a male trait and is not that flattering. But that is just my opinion.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]If your trip is simply to show something, fine. I personally appreciate those that actually emulate the feminine, not make fun of it.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4]Except for nipples that appear to be ready to burst through my top, I have never shown pictures of incomplete looks or what I feel don't really amount to anything, no real effort on their part.[/SIZE]

    My opinion why I don't care to see panties on CDs...

    Well, if the picture is about flashing panties or stocking tops, then the picture is about sex. Tastefully done or not, it still comes down to titilating with sexual inclination.

    I am not sexually interested in CDs, so don't care to see such pics.

    I actually like to look at CDs pics to see how well they can appear female. Maybe more like a professional interest.

    Then there IS the fact that it's hard enough for most of us to look like women, but then you throw in the aspect that they are trying to look sexy at the same time.... I don't know many men who can pull that off successfully (to my standards anyway).

    Hugz, Lori

    What? so CD's in magazines selling stockings and lingerie is all about sex then? *shakes head* Isn't the point of flashing a bit of stocking top trying to be sexy and not about actual sex? Jeez... you'd have everyone in a nun outfit wouldn't you....

    Interesting question. I don't really mind either way. However, I think a still photo showing stocking top or panties is extremely hard to get right without it looking gratuitous, unless it's a fashion shoot. I think the subject needs an air of not knowing what may be showing and the viewer needs a sense of seeing something no-one else has seen. So, subject, viewer and photographer all have to get it right before you get a great picture. Any image in the style of Cartier-Bresson springs to mind as examples of what I mean. As a part-time photographer I think I could struggle for years before I could capture such an image.
