  • About Me
    I am a CD who received an invite from a friend here and now I am here too.

    You may be wondering about the dressing part. I first became intrigued by women's clothes when I was about 13. I was all alone and started to experiment with my mom's things, clothes makeup etc. and would practice whenever given the chance. I even went as far as buying some pierced earrings and trying them out since my mom only wore clip ons!

    I was in heaven and did this for a few weeks. I wasn't entirely happy with my appearance and eventually tried to trim up my eyebrows by using a razor. Not the best idea and I bet you know whats coming next, yep I ended up shaving off my eyebrows! and then somehow thought that I could pencil them back in. It looked totally bizarre because even thought the punk thing was around I was NOT a punk (with the razor blades and safety pins etc) The embarrassment and humiliation I endured as a 13 year old was merciless. I gave up on this for quite a long time from then on.

    Fast forward maybe 15 years + and my wife and I are invited to a Halloween party. The suggestion is made that maybe i should go as a women (make that a sort of sl***woman, kind of funny story). I went all out on the costume with my wife's help. Got a wig, makeup, full outfit , shaved legs. Well to make a long story short the party was great and it was a lot of fun, maybe too much fun.


    Originally this was supposed to be a one shot deal. I got rid of some of the stuff acquired for Halloween, but days later reconsidered and told my wife that I wanted to do it again. Its been quite a while since then and some shared fun for my wife and I. Its not something I would do all the time or anything and it is mostly seasonal for me mostly taking summer off since there is my desire to do so is less.

    My wife has asked me to curtail my hobby around my kids as they grow up, (they are teenagers now) and I have complied. I have learned to love makeup and what it can do to create the perfect illusion of looking like a woman so its not purely a fetish type of thing. I know i have much that I can learn & thats why I am here.! thank you!\

    In the short time I have been here I have found everyone to be real accepting. I realize CDs have a huge image problem which is why so many people are so private about their hobby. Let's face there are not a lot of good role models (well maybe Rudy Guiliani :-) but in the movies the TV is usually the psycho killer or something really bad. Well thats in the US but I guess in Great Britain you could possibly make it to Parliament.

    I am trying to develop a sense of style both with outfits and with the look, especially makeup. There are just so many things to consider.

    Finally found a few pics i can put online here. Please be gentle with your comments, but your influence here with makeup is rubbing off on me (hey what a bad pun).

  • Favorite Music
    Check out my music player on my notepad! [url] http://www.makeuptalk.com/reviews/showEditor.php?usernm=Darla_G [/url] I have varied musical tastes my favorite is classic rock (yes and Genesis) but also like current stuff like Coldplay & Evanescence and my kids keep me somewhat current. Also I really like a lot of jazz, especially jazz fusion type stuff & some classical if I'm in the mood. Detest rap that puts down women.

    I collect lots of live music probably have close to 1000 live shows (some are soundboard (TV & radio) , some are user recorded sources (all legal) So i have traded recordings with people all over the world and have met lots of fascinating people.

  3. Pink Viagra: FDA considers libido-boosting pill for women Female version of Viagra, due for FDA consideration this June, is already a subject of controversy. By Stephanie Rogers Wed, May 26 2010 at 9:29 AM EST src Photo: samxmeg/iStockphoto For over a decade, men with less-than-spectacular sex lives have been able to reach for a bottle of little blue pills. But according to the Washington Post, women who have bemoaned the lack of a similar option for ladies may soon get their wish in the form of flibanserin, a drug due for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deliberation this June. Related Links Human gene catalog reveals body is mostly a mystery Walgreens postpones plan to sell DNA kit Alcohol in pregnancy may boost child's leukemia risk Does working nights cause breast cancer? Five minutes outside can boost mental health, self-esteem The FDA's Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee will meet on June 18 to discuss the drug, produced by German pharmaceutical giant Boehringer Ingelheim, but the pills are already considered controversial. Some wonder whether it's a step forward for women or another unnecessary medication. "Achieving a happy and healthy sex life can be a real and important problem for some women," Amy Allina of the National Women's Health Network told the Washington Post. "But we have lots of questions about the 'pink Viagra'." Viagra has been wildly successful over the years, but coming up with a counterpart for women was no easy task because female sexuality is much more complicated than male sexuality. While Viagra simply increases blood flow to male sex organs, a solution to spice up a woman's sex life requires a hormonal approach. Boehringer Ingelheim stumbled on the sexually stimulatory effects of flibanserin by accident, finding through trials that while it didn't work for its original purpose as an antidepressant, the drug had the notable side effect of boosting a woman's libido. Flibanserin will be marketed as treatment for “hypoactive sexual desire disorder” or HSDD, a term used for the unexplained loss of sexual desire in women. Critics are skeptical of the disorder and of the pharmaceutical industry's role in defining HSDD as an official psychiatric disorder. The waning sexual desire in women is complex with many contributing factors including aging, other medical problems or dysfunctional relationships. After a number of studies on more than 5,000 premenopausal women aged 18-50 in the U.S., it's still not clear exactly how flibanserin works beyond slightly adjusting the brain chemicals serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. No serious complications have been reported.
