It does not follow that you are doing anything wrong. Purestorm is a bit quiet lately anyhow even for young female models, which is the overwhelming area of photography on a site like this. The demand for male models is extremely small. I suspect that for transgender demand is almost non existent. It is not an area I have any expertise in but I suspect you will have to cast the net wide and look out for opportunities where there is an interest in you particular niche. Are their publications coveing this for example. If so are any of the photographers named? Fetlife.com and erolife.co.uk/ may be worth joining as they specialise in the fetish community..And yes I'm aware it is not a fetish for you but that is how the sites describe themselves and I believe both have transgender membership.

I'm not sure if it helps but I did see your casting and felt it was pitched very well.

That's hugely reassuring!

Thank you so much for your advice and your kind words.

I'll refresh my Fetlife profile and try erolife too - good thinking!

So pleased you feel my casting call was pitched well - I was beginning to have second thoughts!

Thanks again and have a fabulous Bank Holiday!

Kisses!

I think it might be useful to explain how transgender you are.

Are you going through gender reassignment surgery?

Your casting is fine, but you cater to a teeny tiny % of the market, even less than male models. And as said, PS is quiet but even then, the fact is that most photographers are here to shoot women. As a long term fetish scene "member" (!) I'd agree that you are probably far far better off on FL>

That's such a shame if true, because I've had a greater response from other (lilac-coloured ) modelling sites.

FL is good too, as are other modelling sites.

I'm a little confused as I was told by other fetish models that PS was where the majority of Adult work was....

...were they wrong? Or is PS just temporarily quiet? X

Whoever told you that is either having a joke or being a pain in the ass. PS has never really been about "the adult work" at all.
