T-girls can be also categorised in different type depending on: ethnicity, then geographical position, and what kind of lifestyle they living. Let’s see now what is this about.
Ladyboys, transsexual, transex, shemale, what’s the difference?
Have you noticed on shemale porn website there are categories with these terms / names? Many associate these terms in most cases with what they see on internet porn sites, thinking that these words are all terms related to pornography and prostitution. That’s wrong! ( We will get into details about sex industry and transsexuals next articles )
The reality is that not all transsexual women are into sex business. It is just a stereotype that Internet is spreading due to the growing sex industry. There are so many transgender women out there who live a decent, respectable life out of sex work.
This is the first thing you always have to bear in mind! Forget what you see on shemale porn websites! When you date a trans woman out of red light districts, you will discover right away how different the reality is!
So, now you have to separate the contest from what is porn, and what is dating ( same goes for on-line dating ). When you are looking for a date with a transsexual woman, remember there are different types of girls as now following.
FIRST thing, we are speaking about transsexual male to female ( MTF, not FTM, different case ). Let’s now make some example of different girls to make clear some points:
- Ladyboy is employed to refer at Asian transsexual
- Transex it is intended to referring to westerner transgender / transwomen
- Shemale shall be never used into dating context because it’s strongly related to porn and prostitution. Tough, it could be tolerated if you are looking for a one night stand with an escort prostitute, who usually doesn’t mind about these details.
Now that you understood a little the meaning of these terms, you will also understand why on our website there are these three different page categories.
Date an Asian transsexual, ladyboy
Transsexuals in Asia are best known as ladyboys. The international name they are also called, which has been introduced in Thailand between 60-70 years to have better communication with westerner tourists.
When it comes to dating scene with an Asian ts, you can use the term ladyboy without so many worries. Asian t.girls are quite familiar with it and is pretty tolerated, but bear in mind that some of them may still find it a bit offensive.
If you want to avoid any risk, only employ transgender woman or local names as Kathoey or Katoi in Thailand.

Date a westerner transsexual, transex
Transex or trans is the contraction of transsexual. These are terms commonly used to address westerner transsexual women from Europe or America. As you can notice, these terms are quite similar and can be exchanged without offending anyone.
So, when you are talking about transsexual women, if you want to point out your preference for a westerner, or when you are looking for a date with a westerner t-girl, is correct to employ: Transex. Instead, if you like Asian TS: Ladyboy

Date a Shemale hooker or tranny
The terms shemale and tranny comes both from America and are mostly associated with USA shemale, and Brazilian trannies. Have been widely used to categorize and advertise American transsexual porn movies by a long time.
With the boom of the porn industry in the 80s, and still nowadays, the shemale term became popular even in Asia, Europe and rest of the world. In fact, you may find t-girls who address oneself as shemale, but the majority of transsexual women will tell you they don’t like to be called such. It’s quite offensive for t-girls who are not sex workers.
Obviously, because it is deeply associated with porn, prostitution, cam sex, which is quite vulgar and offensive. Then you have been warned now!
Dating tip: Why All those terms which add the label of male, as lady-boy or she-male, are sometimes not so tolerated to transgender girls? Aside the sex industry, another reason is due to usually tgirls only wish to be addressed as women! And not a hermaphrodite or hybrid.
The freedom to be with who you like
With all being said, the term shemale somehow represents also an ideal of liberty. The freedom of being with a partner that could be a sex worker, or just that doesn’t want anything more than some fun and complicity with a partner that share the same desire.
