As an erotica writer, I read erotica frequently, and have a rather sizeable collection of print anthologies in particular. On a forum I follow, someone requested resources for ftm/cisgender man pairings in erotica and visual porn. When I saw it, no one had posted about written erotica. So, I took the time to put together a rather lengthy response. I thought I would also share it with you. (If you have resources to add, feel free to comment; I’d be glad to hear about more stories.)
I write kinky queer erotic stories under the name Xan West, many of which feature trans and genderqueer characters. You can find my full list of stories by looking at my LJ profile page, but I will list some that may interest you here, before naming other sources for written erotica.
For ftm/cisgender man pairings, my stories include:
-“Willing”, about a cisgender gay vampire who picks up an ftm boy in a bar, which is printed in the collections Leathermen; Blood Sacraments; and Men at Noon, Monsters at Midnight
-“Kneeling for Him”, about an ftm who picks up a top in a gay leatherbar in SF, which is printed in the collections In Plain View, and Bondage by the Bay
-“A Lesson about Gender”, about a genderqueer submissive reminscing about a cisgender man ze used to play with, which is printed in Pleasure Bound
For ftm/ftm pairings, my stories include:
-“Alley Obsession”, about two ftms doing cocksucking in an alley, printed in Got a Minute?
-“Nervous Boy”, about a first date between two ftms, printed in Love at First Sting
-“Missing Daddy” about an ftm/ftm bear/cub couple, printed in Daddies
-“A Large Full Meal”, about two transmasculine tops getting it on in a bathroom, printed in Salacious Magazine and the collection Cruising for Bad Boys
-“Strong”, from the POV of a transgender top playing with a genderfluid bottom, printed in Say Please
(One thing I try to do is write erotica that is accessible to trans readers, where the descriptions do not jar us out of our bodies, so my other gay work may be of interest as well. My profile lists it.)
Now for other sources. I know print sources more than online ones for erotica, so I can tell you about that.
If you are interested in kink erotica, you may also want to read:
-Patrick Califia’s work, especially his collection Boy in the Middle (“Gender Queer”, “Boy in the Middle”, and “Who Casts the First Stone”); it also includes “Above All the Lights”, but I would not characterize that story as body positive—there is some intense self loathing for the intersex character. Also, his collection No Mercy (“Love Sees No Gender”).
-Carol Queen’s The Leather Daddy and the Femme (a series of vignettes about a genderqueer submissive who picks up a cisgender gay leatherman).
-You may also want to check out the recent collection Say Please, ed by Sinclair Sexsmith (in addition to my story, “Strong”, it has two other stories of trans/genderqueer pairings you might be interested in, “Black Hanky”, by Sassafras Lowrey, and “Feathers Have Weight” by Alysia Angel.)
-The collection Bi Guys includes a couple stories of note. (Patrick Califia’s story “Daddy’s Boy Meets Daddy’s Girl”, and “Switching” by S. Bear Bergman)
-“Puppy Slut” by Michelle Brennan has a cisgender gay man/genderqueer boy pairing. It was printed in Best Lesbian Erotica 2006.
For a wider range of options that includes vanilla, I would recommend the following print sources:
-Tristan Taormino’s latest collection, Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica
-there are also older out of print trans erotica collections that you may be able to get used: Transgender Erotica ed. by M. Christian, Best Transgender Erotica ed. by Hanne Blank and Raven Kaldera
-Circlet Press has printed a few sci fi trans and genderqueer erotica collections, some of which are still in print (Up for Grabs, Up for Grabs 2) and a favorite of mine that you may be able to get used (Genderflex).
While lesbian collections frequently include ftm/dyke and occasionally ftm/ftm pairings, gay collections include ftms much less frequently. My stories (and Patrick Califia’s on occasion) are often the only ones I see with trans characters in them. The only one I have found is Greg Wharton’s story, “Butterflies and Myths”, which appeared in Best Gay Erotica 2004. (Gay erotica collections are a lot more prolific, though so I may have missed some.)
You may also be interested in stories printed in lesbian collections, as they include ftm/ftm pairings. I would esp. recommend looking at Best Lesbian Erotica 2002 (“Johnny” by Alison L. Smith, and “The Word Nebraska” by Tennessee Jones) & Best Lesbian Erotica 2005 (“Fags Like Us” by Zane Jackson).
