Wear Me

As a youngster, I became fascinated with female impersonation when I saw advertisements in the Daily News depicting glamorous women who were actually men performing at a nightclub in New York City.

One thing led to another and around age 12, I was home alone one day when I heard a voice call me. It came from my parent's bedroom  specifically, the drawer of my mother's bureau where she kept her unmentionables.

Just like the bottle that invited Alice to "drink me" and the cake that invited her to "eat me," opening the drawer, the voice said "wear me." And just like Alice, I accepted the invitation and removed a pair of nylon stockings from the drawer. Then I sat on the edge of the bed, carefully slid the nylons up each leg, stood up and straightened the seams just as I had seen my mother do countless times.

I examined my legs in the full-length mirror, which was mounted on the inside of my mother's closet door. Since I was still hairless, I thought my legs looked nice, but something was not quite right.

With the closet door now open, I noticed the stack of shoe boxes on the closet floor. I removed the lid from the box on the top of stack to reveal a pair of high heel pumps that my mother had recently purchased.

I slipped them on and they were a perfect fit. Then I reexamined my legs in the mirror and discovered that thanks to the high heels, my legs were now shapely; they had become "gams" and looked as good as any pair I had ever seen on a real life high-heeled woman!

Ever since that first experimentation in femulation, high heels have been an indispensable part of my wardrobe. As a result, I own a lot of high heels ― probably in the neighborhood of 100 pairs and I am always on the lookout to add new neighbors.

Nine West just introduced their new arrivals for the fall and the "lavish T-strap pump" pictured above and below is inviting me to "buy me."

  1. "I was home alone one day when I heard a voice call me." So true. For me, from well before I was 12 and still today, perhaps 50 years later.

  2. Wow, that is also my story. I was around 8 years old and can still remember my parents room and my mother's draw where her stockings and girdle sat waiting for me. I remember opening that tan thin box and pulling out these pretty nylon stockings. Once on, I went into the walk-in closet and put on a pair of her shoes. I remember being 8, because my mother wore size 10 and I said only 2 more years before they fit. I have been hooked ever since. Decades later, my mother thought it was my younger sister messing with her stockings.

  3. I wrote this post. I was the only one who did such a thing in the early 1970s. Both untrue, of course. But I could have written it and my 8th grade self really did figure I was the only boy who so wanted to be one of the girls that I would "practice" with my mother's clothes when she wasn't looking. I had no sister for cover, I'm sure I left signs. She never said a word. I'll never know whether or not she knew.

  4. Whew! I thought I was the only one that women's clothes talked to!! :)
