Rachel Cox's Profile
My name is Rachel Cox. I am a bisexual
tranny, living in the West Country, Bristol. I am 37 years old. I come
from a working class background. I have been employed in the engineering
industry since school. I can remember my childhood playing with the
two girls who lived next door trying on their dresses, etc. But I have
only been cross dressing at a serious level since I turned 30. I only
dress once or twice a year.
What is your name and what is your background?
My name is Rachel Cox. I live in the
West Country, Bristol. I come from a working class background. I have
been employed in the engineering industry since school. I am currently
Is your name an alter ego
"femme" name - why did you choose that name?
I saw a picture of a beautiful model
in a Transgendered magazine called Rachel, such a lovely name. It fixed
in my mind straight away. It's also easier to correspond with, as its
the same initial as my drab male name.
Are you happy to be called
a tranny and what does this name mean to you?
I love the term Tranny, I associate
the name as a short hand version for transvestite. Although I think
Tranny sounds much nicer.
How old are you and how young
were you when you first thought about or actually cross-dressed?
I am 37 years old. I can remember as far back as childhood playing with
the two girls who lived next door trying on their dresses etc. I have
only been cross dressing at a serious level since I turned 30. Please
remember girls you are never to old, when Rachel becomes alive I feel
and think the looks become 10 years younger.
Where do you buy your clothes?
Occasionally I like to buy clothes
in a little boutique in Bristol. They stock many lines including, fun
fashion, club wear, gothic & sexy wear. I have a love for girly shoes
and own quite a collection. I like going into modern fashion shoe shops
and have no problem trying on shoes. I also love to wear and model lovely
What leads you to choose the
styles you wear?
I am mainly inspired with pictures in books, catalogues & magazines
for the looks & styles I like to wear.
Is make-up and hair important
to you and if so how do you achieve your look?
Make-up & hair is extremely important to me. In order for Rachel to
achieve her looks, I love to visit a top class professional dressing
service when time & cost permits.
To what degree do you practice
hair removal, and other body feminisation?
I absolutely loathe body hair, I like to shave my legs, bottom & genitals
on a regular basis. I also visit a lady beautician to have my upper
body waxed. My ears have been pierced for many years & I like to wear
girly earrings. Manicures & pedicures are extremely important to me.
I visit a nail technician & love to have creative nail extensions, painted
bright colours, the longer the better. Nail extensions help me to feel
more feminine, no girl should be without them.
Who knows you dress?
A close male friend of mine knows about
my femme side. He was my former boyfriend & he encouraged me to cross
dress when we were involved in a relationship. Other girls also know
of me, who I have met subscribing to a membership club for transgendered
How often do you dress and
if you go out where to?
Because I am happy in general, I only
feel the need to cross dress once or twice a year, this enables me to
treat myself to a professional photo shoot. I seldom dress when I am
alone. When my friend visits me for a evening only once every few months
these days, I like to be en-femme for him. Rachel likes to mix & socialise
with others & visit some of the transgendered venues in London, normally
about once or twice a year.
Is cross dressing in itself
a sexual turn on for you?
I do get sexually turned on trannying,
even just wearing a pair of sexy heels spices up things for me in the
Are your sexual preferences
changed by your TG experiences?
I am a bisexual tranny & love to take
up the ladies role when with a guy. My sexual preference is greatly
changed when I become Rachel & find that I am attracted to men a lot
What is your definition of
My definition of femininity is to become
very sexual, to beautify one's self, to look sexy, smart & sophisticated
& be soft sweetly spoken. A feminine body in my opinion should be immaculately
turned out dressed in beautiful clothes & stiletto heels.
What individual has inspired
you most in relation to your TG inclinations?
A former boyfriend
of mine was the person who has inspired me most with my transgendered
inclinations, we still remain close friends.
To what degree do you feel gender
dysphoric (i.e. that your brain is feminine)?
I only try to think
& act feminine when cross-dressed. I find that most of the time I can
completely turn off from being Rachel. It is then something to look
forward to on another occasion. When Rachel comes out to play I feel
& act much more feminine.
Do you feel you have any choice
in your TG thoughts and actions?
As an individual
I do think I have a choice in my transgendered thoughts. I am quite
happy going through life in my male role most of the time.
To what degree would you consider
permanent hair removal, hormones, surgery?
I have not considered
hormone treatment or gender reassignment surgery. However I have thought
about permanent hair removal, I find it such a repetitive task shaving
especially the genital areas, I may go for a consultation.
Have you ever suffered harassment
has never caused me illness, depression or relationship problems, I
only look forward to becoming Rachel each time.
Have you tried to stop?
I would never
stop cross-dressing as I enjoy it immensely. I adore the transgendered
scene and all who are involved.
If you could relive your life
without the TG experience would you choose to?
I would not want
to relive my life without the transgendered experience.
What outstanding TG experiences
stand out in your mind?
Dressing up for
my boyfriend is one of the best experiences that stands out in my mind,
the first time we ever went out as a couple was a joyful occasion. My
first ever visit to a dressing service was an exciting experience. Being
able to meet other like minded transgendered people is a great experience
that sticks in my mind.
What one piece of advice would
you give to someone that has just found they are not the only tranny
in the world?
The best advice I can give to other
girls out there is that trannying should be looked upon in a positive
way & not a shameful thing. Trannying is there to be enjoyed, creating
wonderful happy occasions. You only pass this way once, go for it darlings
get out there and meet others, and have a good time before its all to
