How You’d Hook up with a Shemale in London

There’s one thing quite a few Paris, New York, San Francisco, Madrid, and London shemales have in common and that’s distaste for such terminology. It’s important to be respectful, especially after you meet someone you’re interested in. This even includes the use of pronouns. A preferred pronoun might be the gender-neutral ‘they’. Address your partner using their name or ask them about their pronoun of choice.

To hook up, you need to take care to interact with the person in a kind and courteous manner. “Shemales” may have male sex organs, but they don’t necessarily want them played with, exposed, or even touched right from the start. Everyone is different. They might not want to use them for penetration either.

“Shemale” describes trans women with secondary sex features typical for the female sex, like breasts, but who have male genitals. You’d be surprised to learn this term goes all the way back to the mid-1800s! Back then, it was an ironic colloquialism for women who were perceived as aggressive. This use of the term has kind of stuck around as today.

London lives up to its reputation as an LGBT-friendly European capital. There are plenty of places to meet and hook up with trans women, from the hip bars and clubs of Soho to the buzzing venues of the East End. Some places to take your trans date include Heaven’s G-A-Y Club, KuKlub, Circa, and G-A-Y Late. Eagle London is famous for its trans parties and Vauxhall is a fabulous after-hours scene.

If you’re stumped on a place to stay, one of our suggestions is Travelodge, a big, modern, trans-friendly hotel franchise with basic, but sufficient amenities. Fun spots like RVT and Fire are within walking distance. It’s an excellent choice for travelers on a shoestring budget.

If you want to hook up with a trans person in the English capital, dating sites that target the trans community are a popular option. On these sites, you can share what kind of relationship you’re looking for. Two of the most widely recommended sites are Transdr and My Transgender Cupid. The latter caters exclusively to transgender women and men who’re interested in dating them. It takes only minutes to join both.

On a final note, some trans people actually support the use of the word “shemale.” They believe it has acquired an unfair stigma from activists who believe trans porn is harmful to the community.
