Pioneers of Transgender Porn Discuss Genre’s Growth

Genres tend to ebb and flow in popularity. Parodies were ubiquitous late in the last decade, but now they’re mostly reserved to a scattered array of big-budget blockbusters each year. More recently, glam interracial and family roleplay have surged in popularity. One category that has grown and developed into a consistent winner over the years is the transgender genre. Things didn’t always look so rosy, though, as detailed in an in-depth article from AVN that discusses the expansion of the genre over the past two decades.

When Rodney Moore started the now well-known brand Shemale Strokers in 2002, he noted that “the genre was not that popular. . . I saw an opportunity to grab an audience not only wanting trans solos, but also to be able to watch the videos online.”

The pendulum soon began to swing, a change that popular transgender-genre director Jay Sin attributes partially to new TS performers. “There is a lot more TS talent available it seems these days, with a lot of T-girls with blogs and sites—it seems most professional T-girls got their own site or are getting more work from the many TS sites out there,” Sin said. “Also, being labeled a porn star is attractive for T-girls making a name for themselves. And for the many that escort and travel, the ones who’ve been seen can keep busy due to the exposure.”

The increased popularity of the genre has also put a spotlight on terminology. ““Words that were very popular and totally acceptable back then— ‘shemale’ and ‘tranny’—have now become politically incorrect,” said Moore. “Many, though not all, trans performers find these words offensive.” (Similarly, tn a 2015 interview with Adult Empire, popular trans performer Venus Lux – pictured in the featured image – noted that her preferred term is “transgender.”)

“Transsexuals are just like genetic female talent and should be treated as such,” said Josh Stone of Trans 500. “I have learned there was no special formula when shooting them than I was before. My camera lens is capturing either a hot solo or hardcore scene with a hot woman who happens to have a penis. Though I date genetic females I can appreciate the beauty in how they live their lives.”
