triplea85 asked: Do you feel that there's a level of marginalization that takes place when trans people are fetishized? For the record, I do not, but I believe that this is a common question in a lot of ways: whether we do a disservice to (insert minority here) stories by making them into fetishes in porn and such.

I guess my question would be what does it mean to be fetishized and how does that contribute to marginalization? I think when people talk about the fetishization of trans people they might mean easily digestible porn “tropes” that contribute to the erasure of trans people’s humanity, which yes I do think can contribute to marginalization. I make porn, first and foremost. As a sex worker and pornographer, one part of my job is to create fantasies for other people. What people do with those fantasies is beyond my control. I try my best to do so in responsible ways that reflect my ethics while still making porn that will get people off. It is not an easy line to walk. I would consider the kind of porn I make to be sexualizing a type of trans body because the porn I make is about trans men. Is it a bad thing to sexualize trans bodies? Some people feel this is true, but I do not. I think it boils down to the way porn is made and how a companies ethics are reflected in their work. The way I shoot is largely left up to the way the performers choose to have sex, I am not invested in a certain type of trans body or way of showing trans men having sex because it might make me more money, I let performers choose who they want to work with & I don’t pay people more to do things they wouldn’t want to do. I want to make a trans guy porn site that is more than just trans men bottoming with their front holes, because that is just not how the trans men I know express their sexualities and do feel like that would be a disservice if I chose to only show one type of thing. I’ve come to terms with the fact that the porn I make is not going to be to everyone’s liking and might make people uncomfortable or angry and that is totally ok!  No one has to buy a membership and watch it if it’s not their thing! In a world where people (especially trans people) are told to be ashamed of their bodies, I don’t think it is a disservice to show a wide range of trans men enjoying their bodies in a variety of ways.

"LOS ANGELES—Gay studio Alternadudes.com is bridging the gap of FTM transgender porn by hiring celebrated transgender performer, James Darling. Darling is a multiple award-winning performer/director currently nominated by Tranny Awards for FTM performer of the year. 

Alternadudes President, Chris Koloff, is happy about the new pairing. “James came to us and the minute he did there wasn’t a doubt that he’d be great on the site,” he said. “It’s always interesting when you forge into new territory.  People are scared of what may happen if you color outside the lines. As people find out about James working for Alternadudes I’ve been hearing about how ‘brave’ we are. I don’t think that’s the case at all. If someone doesn’t like the idea or isn’t into it, then they can watch the other few hundred scenes we have. There’s plenty of alt guys of all sorts to go around, and James is now one of those guys.”

Darling is equally enthusiastic about working with Alternadudes. “I think it will get a lot of exposure. A lot of my fans are excited and there seems to already be a buzz about it out there,” he said. “I picked Alternadudes because I’ve always liked their work and the way they devote their site to the guys that are sometimes too ‘out there’ for other companies to feature. I fit in with the guys of Alternadudes. I look a lot like many hip punkish guys my age, but one thing that sets me apart is that I’m a female to male trans person, meaning that I was assigned female at birth and later transitioned to male. I still have my ‘original plumbing’ and I love my extra hole and have no desire to change it. I identify and live my life as a man. Most people would have no idea I’m trans unless I told them (or they watch a lot of internet porn!) and it’s not something I think about as much anymore outside of porn.”

The new full length scene featuring Darling and his tatted co-star, Ruckus, is currently the featured scene on Alternadudes.com.”
