Gender Transformation Top List

I've set up a new Gender Transformations top list which I hope will be of interest to anyone who has a related site and wants to have some easy free traffic. I've only switched it on yesterday and am looking to get it populated. If you have a Transvestite, Shemale or Gender Transformation related site please feel free to be umongst the first to join up. It's free and easy to do. All you have to do is fill out your details and supply your banner to get yourself listed. Your position on the list is determined by linking back to the site from your own site with the supplied banner. I've always received good traffic myself from such top lists so I thought it would be fun to have my own. Its a fair and easy way to trade traffic. Don't worry I'm not using any devious code which runs nasty pop-ups or anything like that, it's a clean genuine traffic driving system. Anyway here is the Gender Transformations Top 100 list:

Gender Transformation Top List


Crossdream Life

Great to see that there are new people joining CrossDreamLife, I notice that there are some very frank and honest posts up there already. I'm hoping to publish a detailed bio of myself up there soon. The bios posted there by the new members are most interesting, and it's good to know I share many character traits with others out there. I wish the site every success.

Here is a press release from the team at for their new forum:

An online forum for crossdreamers

A group of trangender people have established a new online forum for what they call crossdreamers, men and women who dream about having the body of the opposite sex.

The founder, organizer and administrator of the site, Jason Ikeda, says that there is no lack of transgender discussion forums out there, being that for crossdressers, transsexual men and women and various gender variant people:

"We have to face that discussing transgender sexual fantasies remain difficult in many of these forums, though, partly because there are a lot of transgender people who do not have such dreams and partly because sexuality remains a taboo in many circles."

Autogynephilia and autoandrophilia

Jack Molay, the man behind the blog Crossdreamers, adds that some of the scientific discussions on this topic have led to further stigmatization:

"The scientific terms that are used are 'autogynephilia' - the love of one self as a woman -- and 'autoandrophilia' -- the love of oneself as a man. The scientists behind these terms have made crossdreamers visible -- which is helpful. Unfortunately, they try as hard as they can to include these terms in the American  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, labeling all crossdreamers as perverts. This  makes it hard for crossdreamers to get a voice, even in transgender circles."

Sharing life stories

The idea behind the new forum, which is called Crossdream Life, is therefore to provide transgender crossdreamers with a place where they can discuss their lives, share coping strategies, inform each others about on- and offline resources, make friends and vent their sorrows and frustrations. 

There is also a chat function, which makes it possible for members to continue their discussions in private.

"We do not expect the participants to agree on one explanation for what crossdreaming is, what it should be or what causes it," Jason says.  "One objective of the forum is to provide an open-minded and tolerant place for exploring what crossdreaming is about. But we do expect everyone to treat each other with respect and empathy."

A little known transgender group

No one knows how many crossdreamers there are in the world.

""There are no world wide mappings of crossdreamers as such," Jack Molay says. "There are some guesstimates for the number of transsexuals, but not all transwomen or transmen have been crossdreamers, and only a minority of crossdreamers transition. Still, I believe there are far more of them that most of us realize.  I have seen some site statistics for some transgender fiction sites that leads me to believe there are many millions in the English speaking world alone."

Lately several new blogs devoted to crossdreaming and related transgender themes have appeared online, which indicates that this group is finding its voice.

Does Jason expect millions of participants over at Crossdream Life?

"No," he says. "But I do hope we can reach the kind of critical mass that leads to interesting, useful and liberating discussions."
