“I thought that I've got to be the only person on the planet that has these feelings and these interests,” [Kerry] said. It wasn’t until the birth of the Internet two decades [after he became fascinated by rubber masks worn by female characters on the TV show 'Mission: Impossible'] that he discovered there was a thriving community of men who also enjoyed wearing female masks — which offered him both solace and an exciting business opportunity.We're told that Kerry is married to a woman, that she's creeped out by the lined-up women's faces in his mask-making workshop, and that he therefore refrains from asking her to allow him to wear one of these masks while having sex with her. He fantasizes about it but figures that "the reality would be really, really disappointing."
"In a way I don't want to fetishize my wife. You know, I have sex with my wife because I love her. And I don't want to turn her into a sex object, if that makes any sense at all. Because the mask is a fetish object, that's the only thing it really exists for. Among cross-dressers and the like, there is often the thought that masking is a farce. That if a person were truly serious, they wouldn't hide behind a mask."...Yes, isn't that always the question? What would you do if you were truly serious?
"It does strike me odd though that people who practice some of the most socially unacceptable behaviors can also be the most prejudiced,” said T-Vyrus, 34 “in doll years,” a self-described “drag queen, tranny, female masker” and editor of masking magazine Hot Girls. “Among cross-dressers, shemales, trannies and the like, there is often the thought that masking isn't real, that it's a put on, a surrogate, a farce. The thought that if a person were truly serious, they wouldn't hide behind a mask."
