Great podcast. The complexity of gender expression makes it a difficult topic. I am a trans woman and an age player. For for me ageplay is a way to revisit a part of myself I partially shut off.

I never really thought of myself as a boy when I was younger, and having accommodating parents meant that while I wasn’t wearing dresses and pink I still got to play princess, have tea parties with my stuffed toys and bake cakes without it being perceived as inappropriate. I don’t feel like I missed out quite as much as some others may have. However, as I got older a lot of that spirit was replaced by a growing bitterness built up in school. I became closed off , unavailable, and defensive. I was harassed for my effeminacy and as a result it had a strong impact on my personality.

While I am much, much happier now it can still be hard for me to open up. Ageplay allows me to do that. It lets me embrace a part of my personality that I miss and have difficulty expressing. In my daily life I tend to be very assertive and aggressive in my interactions, something I developed as a defense. The trappings of ageplay help me move past that and to reclaim a bit of something I feel like I lost. It doesn’t take a lot for me day to day. The right pair of shoes, the right jewelry, just something to act as a reminder. It makes me a much more pleasant person to be around!

I enjoy the more involved aspects of roleplay as well, but I find the way it informs my daily life the most interesting.

Also your store rocks Benny.
