Packing Tips for FTM Transgender Men

FTM Transgender Men

As a FTM transgender guy, how you feel is equally as important as how you look. Therefore, it is important not only to project a male image but also to feel comfortable in your own skin. One of the places that FTM transgender men have a problem when it comes to feeling like a man is in their nether regions. Given that they have neither a male-looking nor a male-feeling crotch, feeling truly manly can pose some challenges. Luckily, all this can be remedied thanks to packing. In fact, packing is crucial for those who have not undergone a sex reassignment surgery.

Packing, for the uninitiated, is the art of creating a male-looking and male-feeling bulge in the crotch. Packing is essential for FTM transgender guys because it offers them a realistic bulge like that of a regular guy. Some of the terms that are used to refer to a packing device include packy, packer, and STP packer. STP packers are particularly beneficial because you can use them to pee while standing like a man.

It is worth mentioning that not all trans men pack. Some say that packing is too hot or sticky, leading to an uncomfortable feeling. If you find that packing is uncomfortable, you don’t have to do it. Additionally, others do not pack simply because they find it unnecessary.

Occasions that May Warrant Packing

Packing can be particularly advantageous in some specific situations. Even if you don’t like packing, wearing one during these occasions can significantly help you project a strong male image. Many of the occasions that may require you to wear a packing device include times where your crotch area is exposed, such as while swimming. Additionally, if you are the daring type who likes to wear tight fitting pants, packing would be handy because it would help you create a male-looking bulge.

Hard Packing and Soft Packing

FTM Transgender Men

As an FTM transgender men, it is important to understand some of the terms that go with packing. Specifically, you must know how to distinguish between hard packing and soft packing. Packing hard can be defined as the act of wearing a dildo or another prosthetic device that is usually erect. Hard packing is usually done for the purpose of sexual enjoyment. Given that men don’t usually walk about with erect phalluses, it would probably be best to leave hard packing for the bedroom. On the other hand, soft packing simply refers to wearing a packing device simply to create the illusion of a flaccid phallus.

In conclusion, if you are packing for the first time, it would be a good idea to do some research on the products and styles available so that you can create a convincing look with your packing device. Researching online will give you plenty of examples to emulate and teach you how the male scrotum sits under underwear.

Fashion Tips for FTM Transgender Guys

FTM Transgender Guys

As a FTM transgender guy,  projecting a male image is crucial. Your presentation matters. Your style of dress matters. The secret to “passing” as male is wearing men’s clothing. This goes beyond simply going to the men’s department in your local shopping center. It is important to choose male clothes that fit your FTM body well, which could be challenging if you have a small body or other considerations. Here are some tips that can help you choose male clothes for your FTM body.

Do the Clothes Fit?

FTM Transgender Guys

One of the key questions you should ask yourself when shopping for male apparel is whether they fit your body properly. As a rule of thumb, always go for clothes that fit you well. Whether you are just wearing jeans and a t-shirt or something more dressed up, it should be neither too tight nor too baggy. For example, when choosing pants, ensure that it not only has the right cut but also that it sits comfortably at your waistline.

If you have a slightly smaller body, there is no shame in shopping in the boy’s section. All that matters is whether the clothes will fit your frame and body type. Additionally, shopping in the boy’s section comes with a pocket-friendly price tag.

Are You Comfortable?

FTM Transgender GuyFashion is often a personal choice. Therefore, although you want to project a male image, you should always make sure that you are comfortable in whatever you are wearing. Do not wear something uncomfortable just because other guys are wearing it. You should wear clothing that fits you properly and makes you look like the man you want to be.

If you are one of the lucky FTM transgender guy that have small hips, finding male pants that fit you well and are comfortable is plain sailing. However, if you have slightly bigger hips, finding pants that fit you well can be tricky because most male pants don’t have room for larger hips. When looking for pants, ensure that the pants you choose hug your body while still allowing room for movement.

Do the Clothes Have Any Patterns?

The patterns on the clothing you choose are very important, especially when choosing shirts and t-shirts. This is because they can be used to camouflage any bumps on your chest. For many FTM trans guy, hiding their chest under a shirt can be a somewhat tricky. Luckily, patterns can be used to disguise bumps or make them appear less noticeable.

As a final note, never fall for the misconception that baggier clothing will help you hide your chest or your lack of muscles. Despite what most people think, baggy clothing makes you look older and unfashionable. Clothes that fit well complement your figure and show it off to your best advantage.

Transgender FTM Passing

A Trans male is someone who is transitioning from female to male. Often times it is also someone who was born biologically female, but identifies as male, usually because they are unable to transition, for various reasons.

female to male

Most Transgender Female to Male do eventually choose to transition, and will do so by going through HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy. They can go to a doctor to receive a prescription for what is usually biweekly injections, though there are other means of receiving the hormone, through methods like patches, gels, or several other ways.

In order to “pass” as male, some trans males will try to get the testosterone, as it will give them a generally more masculine appearance, and lower their voices. However, many FTM transgender male are unable to start hormone therapy, and instead will find other ways to match a male appearance. Binding is one option, where one will bind their breasts to achieve the look of a flat chest. There are quite a lot of ways to do this, but many of them have been known to be very unsafe. One method is using Ace Bandages, but that has been very well known to cause many health problems, and most people will warn against this method. It is not safe, and can cause serious damage to the ribs and lungs.

The safest known way is to buy a medical chest binder, which can be found rather easily online, and in many different styles. Most, if not all trans men will bind their chests, unless they are able to receive “top” surgery, which is usually a surgery to remove most of the breast tissue from the chest.

Another thing trans men will do in order to pass is packing, where they will put something in their pants to mimic the appearance of the bulge left by male genitalia. Packers are sold online in many places, and often look alike to the male genitalia. A much simpler, cheaper method of packing is to use a rolled up sock and place it properly.

Slightly oversize shirts and loose pants are usually the key to having a masculine appearance, though some FTM trans man are able to take on a masculine appearance without the use of large t-shirts. Buying male clothes alone can help more than one would think they could, and it’s a rather easy thing to achieve, seeing as male clothing is usually much cheaper than woman’s clothing.

Much of appearing male depends on your mannerisms and things that one really wouldn’t think to focus on. Men tend to have a different walk than most women, and focusing on the gait while walking can often give a person a more “masculine” way of walking.

One thing to focus on as well is appearance while sitting. Men tend to take up as much space as they can while sitting, while women do the opposite. Generally just trying to take up as much space as possible while sitting will bring a more masculine appearance, from spreading the legs, to doing something as simple as leaning back more.

Trans men are known to be of many sexualities, though a large amount of them are Pansexual, which is an attraction to someone regardless of their gender identity.

Quite a few transgender men are known to date heterosexual women, while some will date gay men. It all depends mostly on the FTM transgender man themselves, and the people that are interested in dating them.

Quite a few well known trans men include:

Chaz Bono, the son of Cher, who has written a book on his experiences as a trans man. The movie Becoming Chaz came out in 2011, which was also a movie about his transition.

Brandon Teena, who was a young trans man that was murdered in 1993. A movie was made about him, the 1999 film Boys Dont Cry.

And Buck Angel, whom is a film-maker, speaker, and advocate. He stars in a documentary about his life, as well.

Many movies have been made about or starring trans men, including those listed above, as well as the 2002 film Just Call Me Kade, the 2006 movie Boy I Am, and the 2015 movie About Ray.

Many of the movies being created focus on the problems facing transgender youth, which has been an increasing concern in recent years.
