Sissy-Story The premise for this book is fairly original and erotic. A somewhat androgynous-looking guy and a lesbian meet through a mutual friend at a neighborhood pub and really hit it off. They have lots in common and enjoy each other’s company. There’s just that little problem of conflicting sexual orientations that’s a barrier to them becoming the perfect couple.

Since Connie is the more forceful of the two, she quickly decides that they can make this work. All Peter has to do is let her feminize him and place his penis in a chastity device. Peter isn’t altogether keen on the idea, but his strong attraction to Connie and a fair amount of alcohol break down his resistance; before he knows it he’s wearing makeup and dressed in sexy lingerie engaging in lesbian-style sex with his new lover.

To this point the story is fun, sexy and more or less plausible. Where it begins to break down is when Connie immediately pushes Peter to totally relinquish his male identity and accept that he’ll have to undergo sexual reassignment surgery in order to be her girl friend. They meet on Friday night and by Monday he’s going into work dressed as a woman. The pace of his transformation is just a little too far-fetched and interferes with the reader’s ability to buy into the believe-ability of the scenario.

Lamentably, the period leading up to and following Peter’s sex change is not developed in much depth. Eventually the idyllic relationship hits a rocky patch: Connie has an affair with a heterosexual man, for whom she nearly leaves the “girl friend” who has given up so much for her. In an effort to stay together, they give ménage a trois a try, but that ends badly when Gary rapes Peter (now Petra). Although it is somewhat soul-satisfying, the couple’s revenge that provides the interloper with his comeuppance is way too fanciful to be realistic. All the romantics out there will enjoy the HEA ending though.

Although it is flawed as noted, A Sissy Story: Feminized For Her is mostly an enjoyable short read. One technical issue with this book is its sloppy copy editing. There are numerous missing or incorrect words in the text and the formatting and punctuation of the dialogue is often choppy, almost to the point of being garbled.

About Jim Lyon

Jim Lyon began writing erotica in the mid 1990s and served as story editor for the now-defunct Ownme.com before his first femdom-themed erotic novellas, Uncharted Territory and The Accidental Domme, were published as e-books by Sizzler Editions. Jim is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. He left high school in his senior year to live the bohemian life in New York City's Greenwich Village and Lower East Side. Not being a big fan of cold weather and crowded tenements, Jim returned to the West Coast within six months and lived in Berkeley during the tumultuous mid to late 1960s and early 1970s. While there, his claims to fame include being folksinger Malvina Reynolds' neighbor/tenant and part owner of the Northside Theater, a repertory cinema of considerable renown. After leaving Berkeley, Jim put himself through college and earned a B.A. in Journalism from USC. His eclectic career since then has encompassed editing, writing, business management, social work, teaching, and web publishing, with stops in northern and southern California, Hawaii, Florida and Oregon.
