My Flings With Female Impersonators

Posted by:

We used to call them “female impersonators”. I think that’s still politically correct today although you almost never hear it anymore. Everyone wants to sound either indignantly hip, or clinical, as if they were wearing white lab coats when speaking of trans-genders and transsexuals.

I’ve always liked them.

For one, they never carried a chip on their shoulder, as male homosexuals do. I have an entirely different theory about lesbian women after having seen up-close the brutish sorts of men Asian and Middle ...

The Time I Took my Wife to Meet the Girls at Manos

Posted by:

You already know the story of my first visit to Manos, the Russian spy-restaurant in Tokyo. It was 1972. It was run by two brothers from Pittsburgh, former OSS officers during WWII, and within shouting distance of the Soviet embassy, where, at the end of every visit, I’d pause to take a leak on their gate.

A small restaurant, Manos was known Tokyo-wide not for its borscht, which was horrible, but that it was the single place in all Tokyo ...

Putting a Tuk-Tuk Into the Wall

Posted by:

It must have been 1990 or 91, my battalion was in Thailand for a training deployment.  They worked the hell out of us and made us hurt.  I learned first hand about the nasty things that live in jungles.  After 23 days in the jungle the entire crotch fell out of my trousers, it was cooler that way but still somewhat embarrassing.  I wasn’t the only one, that helped a little.  The Wolfhounds finally got me a shower and decided ...

My First Adventure at Manos in Tokyo, 1972

Posted by:

(ed note: There is today a Manos Russian restaurant in the Asakusa area of Tokyo, but the one of which I speak here was just a short walk from the original Sanno Hotel in Akasaka, who’s history can be seen here.)

I could tell a dozen stories about Manos, a little Russian restaurant in the Akasaka District of Tokyo, about 200 feet from the Soviet Embassy.

My best friend in Japan was Maj Guy, living next door in our 12 family ...

Wenching on the DMZ; the Owner’s Manual

Posted by:

 

Stormy Daniels brings to mind the ancient and universal definition of “wench”, a woman of low repute one would not like to be seen with in public.

Politics aside, she’s made public a side of life few Americans, unless born on the wrong side of the tracks know very little about. Still, it seems every American soldier, as far back as the Civil War, when the term “camp follower” became synonymous with off-duty recreation for soldiers, and were a fixture outside ...

In Search of the Beautiful Lt Chiquita, My Affair with Prostitution, continued

Posted by:

To have any street cred about prostitution, I have to have had some personal experiences with those long-legged females up ahead.

I had that chance, as an unmarried man, during my college days. So, I’m not telling anything out of school here.

In the mid-60s I formed a romance with those beautiful black-eyed Mexican women embedded by Hollywood in so many Western films, and one in particular, the beautiful, busty Lieutenant Chiquita, Mexican Juarista extraordinaire. Continue Reading →
