Sexual Role Reversals — The Tiresias Project

For those not steeped in Greek history, Tiresias was changed into a woman for seven years for having killed a female snake. Whence, the name. Woman for Life would like to be a man for a day. There have been Hollywood treatments of this theme, but they have always been pretty light, and always comedic. But seriously, what if you and your partner were to switch bodies (but not brains) for a week. Come on, stay with me here. If you don’t have a partner, fabricate one. I say a week because a day just doesn’t seem to be enough to give this thought experiment justice. It’s a week off from week in a foreign land. Nobody but you will be any the wiser. Having an existing partner gives that added benefit of having to walk in the other person’s shoes. Also, now that the tables have been turned, will you follow through on your expectations of how the other sex should act?

So, guys, on Day 1 you wake up, and you’ve got no cock; you’ve got no balls—not so much raging testosterone. Instead you’ve got a new vagina accessorised appropriately with a well-functioning clitoris. Anorgasm is not an issue in this experiment. And look breasts. Nice. Girls? Now you’ve got this thing dangling between your legs, and it is erect and looking for a warm home. Now what? You both immediately realise—and accept—what has happened. How long until you use your new-found equipment? Do you, in light if the warm vagina on a person you know, take a dip?

I am not going to extend this to the end. I just wanted to prompt some questions. Since I am a guy, I have some particular thoughts. In the scenario of now being a woman—but with the same brain—, do I suck his cock? Would I deepthroat? Do I let him cum in my mouth? Do I swallow? These are all the things I would expect a woman to do? Would I do the same?

Do I let him fuck me—to break in my new pussy. Like new. Never been used. 😉 I feel like I need an orgasm, you know. Would I let him fuck me in the ass?

Now, of course, coming from being a guy my experience is with women? Do I try the lesbian thing? It sounds appealing now. Women (now men), do you do the gay thing? After all, most of your experience would be with men. What would Jesus do? What would you do? It makes me wonder…

  1. There was an interesting take on this done by Thorne Smith (“Nightlife of the Gods”, “Topper”) in which a couple was switched. Even more interesting was that he wrote “Turnabout” back in 1931, and was probably a bit risque at the time.
    has a description of the book.

  2. I think I’d do as much stuff with my new cock as I could if I had a mere week to try it out and had to give it back later. Cram as many different experiences into that week as I could manage, and hopefully come out actually knowing what the hell men are on about.. 🙂 I’d try girls, boys, bj’s and hand-jobs – anything I could come up with.

    Does this experiment extend to a mind-pattern swap too? If so, it would be really helpful. We may actually “get” each other for the first time in gender history!

  3. Thanks, Tom, I found an online version of Turnabout. I’ll take a look.

    WFL, it is amazing that you feel you would cram it any place it might fit. I suppose that’s how woman think most men feel about their equipment. No, wait. It’s true. 😉

    Mind swap, eh? I remember hearing a piece on hormones. Pump a chick full of testosterone, and she pretty quickly starts thinking (or reacting) like a guy. Reduce the testosterone of a guy to nearly zero, and he becomes selfless, more like a Buddha or Jesus than a woman. I don’t think a mind swap is necessary for the experience.

  4. So.. if you’re switching bodies with your partner, and then having sex with your parter… you’re having sex with your own body.

    So the question is .. would you go down on yourself?

    Normally I’d say no.. but if that could *actually* happen, I think I’d just have to do everything that’s possible, just for the hell of it, cuz I mean… come on. If that actually happened? How could you not? When else would you have the chance to literally fuck yourself?
