    So after many year of setting up and then running Transtastic it's time for me to leave. It's been totally amazing, but the time is right for me to step aside and let more new and exciting people take over.   Katie Glover who is the Editor of Frock, and also operates Gender Society will be be taking over the reins from now on. We've known each other for years, and I've been talking about this for a number of month with her.   I've got so much to do in my personal life and Transtastic - all it's members have really helped me developed in the person I am today - thank-you.   I have so many other projects I work on, include Sparkle, the largest transgender celebration in the world (www.sparkle.org.uk) - and now also the UK National Transgender Awards. Oh, and I volunteer as a mentor for trans people locally... and I also work. So I'm a busy woman - I simply can't dedicated the time Transtastic needs, that you need as members.   So the time is right - thank-you all so much, and especially thanks to Pauline who has been a rock to me personally and to this site.   I'll be around for a while still - but for now over to Katie and her team.     Take care     Beckie

    I know this is late in tribute terms, but I’ve been staggering around Europe with travel/work recently and had no time to sit down and think this through! It is hard to underestimate the affect David Bowie had on my early life, it is a cliché that he gave thousands of androgynous souls at the time the permission to be themselves rather than wear the beige uniform expected by the social ‘normals’ of the time. He was the pathfinder, the squadron leader, the ringmaster, the starship captain, the volunteer, the our androgynous agent and representative…..the David against society’s goliath…..and I for one, happily, gleefully, prettily trotted along in his wake. I felt the growing confidence sitting in a dreary West London 1970’s flat, stick thin legs poking out of my skirt at the crappy wooden dressing table, thick long curly hair dyed red and lashings of mascara with Ziggy calling to me from the Dansette record player on my unmade bedsit bed and shouting encouragement to reach out and slide into a skin-tight pair women’s midnight blue with stars all over, velvet trousers, a loose lace blouse and setting of into the cold night air to meet a group of friends and lovers in the basement of the Sussex pub in Covent Garden, then after drinking white wine and getting mellow with some large shared spliffs, moving on to a party at some friend’s house in Camden and being seduced by excitable boys with moppet haircuts! He lit up this period of time with a delicious glamour and creativity that was unlike anything that had been before or to be honest, that has come after. He was an artist who blended music, theatre, fashion, sexuality and social style into his own lexicon of art, part of his magic was that he seemed to change alongside your own developing life-story. I was living in Germany when his album Heroes came out, it seemed magically to be synchronised precisely and emotionally to my own life and experiences and became literally the soundtrack to my life.

    Being accepted as transgendered in British society is an ongoing process, which is sometimes 2 steps forwards and 1 step back and sometimes sadly it is 1 step forward and 2 backwards.   I have been ill with the flu for about a week but I have sort of glanced at things on my Ipad and found out that Jeremy Clarkson wrote a transphobic article in last Sunday's (24th Jan 2016) Sunday Times. Now we all know that Jeremy has form as a racist and a bully...but this is a new low, even for him.   His article, in the Sunday Times, is very sarcastic about us trans folk,   "The media have now decided that we must all feel "sympathy" about people who change their name from Stan to Loretta; after likening us all to "ladyboys" or stagnight assignations he also went on to denigrate trans children and their parents......."   More specifically, he then went on to criticise the parents of transgender children, for “poisoning the minds” of their families, by allowing their children to live their life as their preferred gender. He added: “I wanted to seek out [the parents] and explain that they were free to live a lunatic life, they must not – and I was going to emphasise this with spittle - be allowed to poison the mind of a child... “[Children] dream impossible dreams. You don’t actually take them seriously. You don’t take them to a hospital when they’re 10 and say, ‘He wants to be a girl, so can you lop his todger off?’”   The man - Clarkson - has been criticized on social media, and rightly so, including requests that Amazon fire him for his views.   The links to Clarkson are here http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2016/01/25/jeremy-clarkson-transgender-offensive-column_n_9067190.html?ir=UK+Entertainment https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/people-want-amazon-fire-jeremy-101739670.html     In addition Richard Littlejohn, the hounder of Lucy Meadows, is back even nastier than Clarkson. He is now accusing us of being "terrorists"or for being responsible for allowing men in burkhas to slip past passport control, because trans people are allowed through. Facts have little to do with reality in Littlejohn's world - like maybe one man in a burkha avoided passport control.Anyone who has been through passport control knows that.   'We've got enough trouble already with male jihadis trying to sneak across borders by disguising themselves under burkas. We don't need long queues at airport security behind men and women who refuse to declare their gender to immigration officials, even though it's bleedin' obvious to a myopic mole in bottle-top bi-focals.' 'You can't say you weren't warned. I've been writing for the past ten years about 'trans' being the next frontier for the diversity warriors.'   And he goes on to say....   'It's been full steam ahead to adapt society in line with the demands of a noisy, belligerent, but minuscule number of people -- with the police and local councils, naturally, in the vanguard.' 'We have now ended up with an official approach which turns nature, reason and common-sense upside down.'    Like Clarkson Littlejohn is a racist, homophobic, transphobic bigot. One lives in the UK, the other lives in a tax exile where he rants at will about a Britain that never existed and is, contrary to both their dinosaur views, becoming more tolerant.   Here is the link which shows both their mysognist, transphobic views http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/emily-brothers/emily-brothers-trans_b_9091410.html   So you may ask  - Why have I bothered to write this blog.   We clearly are never going to convince these 2 old farts (both younger than me) that they are out of step in modern Britain.   The key is that all of us transgendered people should be able to protest about their views - either by joining protest votes or refusing to buy the Sunday Times, or to watch Amazon Gear, or looking at the Daily Mail website.  There are many ways to protest as Emmeline Pankhurst showed.   Transphobia will always be out there brothers and sisters, and it pays us all to be vigilant. Maybe these two throwbacks meant two steps back...I happen to think its only half a step. Why? Because they are out of step with the society we are living in in the UK. No it is not perfection, irrespective of your political views, but its more tolerant towards transpeople than it was even 5 years ago.   Stay positive.     hugs     Pauline xxx

    So I was playing away from home on another site and a message popped into my inbox there. “How do you do it?” My first thoughts were that conversations that start this way don’t always end well. And besides what exactly is “it.” This could be referring to anything know to women or it could just be as simple as IT(Information Technology). There was a clue, the person who sent me the message had a T by their name which on the site concerned identifies you as being from the Trans community and as I am on that site as Hannah there could be a connection there. Maybe! So how to answer such a question when you are not 100% sure you know what is going on. For one my brain came up with an answer pretty quickly; “I would like to say naturally, but I have to work at it.” Now I am well aware that it is possible to hold a conversation on line were neither of you know what the other is really talking about, was this going to end up like that. No, it was going to be a lot better that that. It quickly transpired that in this case “it” referred to presenting oneself as female. I really wasn’t expecting what came next, upon seeing a picture of me (the photo below) I received the comment “Wow you’re so female I can’t believe you were born male!” Now forget about doing a Naomi Campbell and falling off platform heels, if I hadn’t been sitting down at the time I think I could possibly have fallen off my ballet pumps! I did not see this coming. Now I have had comments on here saying I look natural and (no disrespect to the people making them) I have never really believed them. Whereas I am happy with the girl that looks back at me from the mirror there is a little voice inside my head that says “you’re a man in a dress” and I am sure that I am not the only one who has experienced that. There are times when I lack self-belief and maybe I should have more belief in myself. The conversation went on, “are you on hormones, have you had the operation?” and my head started to spin, in a good way! What if everybody is right. What if I do look natural as a female? I certainly feel natural and comfortable dressed and living that way. Then the thought about transitioning crept into my head. Those thoughts have filled my mind many times but this time it seems to be different. It seems more serious and less of a “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” fairly tail. I am the only person who can make that decision about myself. And I know that I need to do a great deal of thinking about it, after all it is life changing. When I look back over my life, do I really believe and I mean REALLY believe that I am a female trapped in a male body and that my feelings are more than just a desire to connect with my female side. I don’t think I can answer this right now. But what I do know is that the time is right to sit down and put a lot of serious thought and consideration into how the rest of my life is going to pan out.

    I love to write,I should have taken journalism in college.its great that there are places where you can blog that saves me and feeds my writing needs. One of the things I was just discussing was how some people of the male gender just want sex because your mysterious,whatever that means and the other was how some just expect you to be a drag queen.to me we are all born people.Humans.I know that I've been a girl since the day I Was born but lived a very Catholic lifestyle so you can take it from there. Don't get me wrong on the whole drag queen thing.rupaul nuff said. But to truly be a woman or a male it's not about sex or just looking sexy for me.heck I just love lace and silk.the way it feels against my skin and how light and free I feel.I hate clothes anyway.lol But I will sit around like any normal person in my home in bra and panties sleep pants and a tank top.I do not believe that clothes make the person it's who you are inside. So guys yes we love to doll up and we sometimes aren't shy.but we are people and should be treated as such.like a lady not a whore...(not in public anyhow unless the place is right)am I alone in this or is this common.whats your take.I just do what I do and am the person I am ..but I do like to be pretty. I believe that there is a huge difference between drag queen and transgender.but I'm sure still having a penis confuses things....lol....feedback anyone. Thank you for your love and your friendship.

    Hello world,this is my first blog here.i am michaela.or kaylynn.for as far back as I can remember I recall questioning my role in the world.dont get me wrong,I am the flower child of my family so I wasn't questioning me as much as my body vs my mind. Never thought about it,but very young I was searching for the woman inside,at first this started with trying on clothes,the usual cross dress and such.but that was occasional as I lived a life where it was hard to experiment and find.by the time I was 18 I was still questioning this and just thinking it was a deviation of sort.not even noticing my appearance at times was so feminine that in public sometimes a person would say excuse me miss,I knew I was different at this point and looked deeper. Through my 20s and 30s this continued but grew stronger,it wasn't clear until some years back when I dressed not for the sexual excitement,but because it just made me feel better somehow.I began to take more time with this and in recent years realized all that I assumed years previous.I am a woman,I live 60 percent or more of my life as a woman and find the arousal of clothing secondary to the deep femininity that I have pounding inside of me. So I am a woman ...who knew.and I thought I might just be a cross dresser ..either way wonderful forms of expressing femininity.i am currently working on make up with a girlfriend of mine and different forms of expression and hormone options.this is what feels normal and I am finally one person.complete.my pics have been play but I'm growing my hair naturally long and plan to style...these things don't happen overnight .well they kinda do...I went from toying and questioning a couple years ago to fully embracing my inner woman and it did just seem to all come together quickly and strongly.I have sought guidance with this ..but the more I searched,the more I found me.No more inner fight,no more questions.just a woman that's been trying to break free for years ..and this girl is on fire

    St Audries Bay holiday camp   This was my first visit to St Audries Bay and as the title suggest it a holiday camp but with a difference, a little bit of magic for every TG girl who has wanted to be whom they really want to be 24/7 set in the beautiful county of Somerset.   If you are familiar with Trans living or the Belmont Society, or tvChix then possibly you may have heard of this event which has taken place twice a year in May and September for the last 10 years. I only aware of this amazing situation through playing with the band KinkyMinx who I also accompanied at this year’s Sparkle.   St Audries is in a remote area and described as a wonderful, sleepy location by the sea on the north Somerset coastline. The holiday camp taken over by t girl’s, their partners and admirers for a week, have chalet, although basic , are very passable and the cost is very reasonable, basically about £160 for the week shared accommodation.   They have a Restaurant, bar and dance hall where they have a DJ plus entertainment.  There is self-service breakfast with a waiter who serves the food to the table. There are stalls selling wigs, dresses and beauty products and a reception shop which sells stationery.   In the grounds there is mini golf, or should that be putting green? Croquet, and tennis, there is also an indoor swimming and sauna, and to top this there are steps leading to a quiet secluded beach which I spent time enjoying as my photos show   Unfortunately rather than looking after this amazing situation, there are those who post negative write ups, mainly to do with disagreements between the entertainments management and various organisations     Most of the complaints seem to me to be from people possibly expecting too much and forgetting that it is far from a normal situation.   The nearest village is Willinton a couple of miles from the camp, with a pub called the Foresters Where I played with KinkyMinx on the 22nd September which can be seen again in my photos with some of the girls from the camp who support the band, and the nearest Town is Watchet where we played on the Friday at a pub called the Esplanade.   It really is amazing walking around in broad daylight and being accepted by shop assistances as though thing‘s are normal apart from a few humorous glances from passes by and I would recommend this holiday to everyone and I am in the process trying to reserve accommodation, and hope to be back in May    Hi, thanks for all the feedback I received for my blog. I am including the full address for those wanting to contact the camp and find out more.   Kentisbury week at St Audries St Audries Bay holiday camp West Quantoxhead Nr Minehead Somerset TR4 4DY  Telephone: 01984632515 Website: www.staudriesbay.co.uk

    I’ve just had one of the most amazing experience’s since my days as a professional musician in the 1980’s with a with a beautifully Transsexual called Lora G and GG Nikki Lunden and their Band, although Lora and everyone are now back in LAI will be returning to the UK next year, and hopefully I will be playing with the band then   It is funny how things work, if it hadn't been for Beckie running Transtastic which I joined a few years ago, and last year Fiona Cole accepted me as one of the DJ’s on Transtastic radio which reached worldwide and I invited people to send in their own music and had response from Columbia, the UK and the USA, which is when a friend of the Lora G band JONIE VOIX got in touch asking me to play Lora G’s music on the radio   Shortly afterwards Lora introduced herself in the hope that I could help to put her in contact others able to give the band work, or if I was able to help get them work. I haven’t been active in the scene she needed for many years and was unable to help. They came from the States on a promotion tour with just two London gig’s and one gig in Edinburgh   Although well-known on LA scene with the original singer being Nate Tao who was a top 40 male contestant on America Idol.   It would be easier to say who Lora G hasn’t been in contact with, she has 5 Emmy Awards, 3 Edward R. Murrow Awards, Scripps Howard Award, NAPTE IRIS Award, Community & Government Service honors.  http://www.linkedin.com/pub/lora-g/51/259/8a2   Nikki Lunden merged with Lora G replacing Nate Tao as lead singer: Nikki Lunden opened for David Lowry and Johnny Hickman of Cracker, Devon Allman’s Honeytribe, Melissa Ferrick, Pieta Brown and Bo Ramsey, sharing festival bills with Spin Doctors, Gin Blossoms, 7 Mary Three, and has recently performed with Micki Free of Shalamar.)   Although I didn’t have a lot of time to find out much about Kimberley Smith, who is an extremely good backing vocalist, again was such a great person to be with one couldn’t help but feel love all for those that made up the band   The Lora G drummer is Gerry Doot who was in a British Punk band back in 1977 called Animal Games and released an album by the same name, which was then included on the compilation album called ‘London The Punk Rock collection’   Andy Catt The bass player with the Lora G band is Norwegian living in the States and what a talented bassist, Joco, Stanly, Na Andy Catt and very cool   Description of the Lora G band The Lora G and Nikki Lunden Band is comprised of a group of incredibly talent musicians and singers—all who have their own bands and/or solo albums or individual recording projects. These core members come together because of their love of creating original music, love of each other and belief in the band. Because their material is so varied, they call it: Alternative Eclectic Rock The members of Lora G Band and Nikki Lunden who played in the UK are: Lora G—Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals, Songwriter, Co-Producer Nikki Lunden -Lead Singer, Songwriter, Guitar Kimberley Smith—Vocals  Andy Catt—Bass, Vocals, Guitar Gerry Doot-drums and percussion Business Manager: Dennis Kennelly   On arrival at Heathrow Airport they spent 30 hours trying to get through custom’s being held because they were here to promote the band instead of to earn loads of money from the gig’s No one would believe them which is when they first made contact with me, but again I was not in a position to help them, and all I could do was suggest they get in contact with one of the gig’s they were playing at to see if they would stand as guarantor, and they were fortunate the Landlord from the Patricks Bar Crystal Palace was able to help   Although it was slow going for them when they first arrived, and only had two gigs when they first touched down, through their own determination and hard work spending hours searching the net, managed to achieve more than many bands resident in London and the UK. They were here for 18 days and ended up doing 17 gigs, by the time they left, 2 of these on the same day. They played at the Edinburgh Fringe festival the world's largest arts festival, all the time staying in contact with the bands followers back in LA,   Nikki Lunden knackered still found time to smile whilst making a video of their arrival to Edinburgh, ‘after a 12 hour drive on the wrong side of the road in the rain, narrow roads, oncoming traffic, ugghh what a night!! Way to go Andy for getting us here and not knocking me out for my back seat driving!! – Nikki’   Returning to London, they played the New Cross Inn which was my chance to meet up with them. But before the band arrived this much taller person than I (being only 5’8”) introduced themselves, who was our very own Beckie Cannon in drab, who I didn’t recognise, never seen before lol I was also in drab, and Lora later in the week would asked where are all the TG’s in the UK not having met a single one the whole time she was here? and I had to agree with her that the Transgender scene in the States seems a lot more open than here.   Shortly after the Lora G and Nikki Lunden band turned up, which gave me a very brief moment to introduce Beckie who Lora thought was really handsome, and I introduced myself as Jady from Transtastic. Lora G was pleased to meet us, then went to work organising and setting up to play, and asked me to video the show which was a 40 minutes set which although not a Hugh audience went down really well, however I missed saying goodbye to Beckie when she left, becoming very involved with the band   Once the band had completed the set, I mentioned that I would really enjoy playing with the band and Lora knowing I was a sax playing through my profile on Transtastic said ‘what would you play’ Having played her music on Transtastic radio I knew one of the songs that rocked called ‘Hear Me’ which I suggested to Lora who turned to bass player Andy Catt, who had joined us, both said he knows the number, and Lora replied ‘yeah come on down to Patricks Bar in Crystal Palace on Saturday   Being a 67 OAP and at times feeling my age I almost didn’t bother to go but thought why not go along even if I didn’t play but as I walked into Patrick’s Bar Lora came forward making me feel part of what was happening by giving me a hug and straight away introduced me to everyone saying here’s our sax player.   They played 3 numbers before inviting me to play their song ‘Here Me’, and partly to cover themselves because they didn’t know me but were confident in themselves to give me a chance to prove myself Nikki Lunden introduce me by saying give Jady a big welcome it’s his first time playing with us so we don’t know what’s going to happen.    After the song finished which went down really well, she was full of praise and having been introduced to their finance manager who come up giving praise saying ‘wow you rock you really took the roof off’ and everyone made me feel so good, that when Lora invited to play their next gig in East London I was more than happy   Although I didn’t have too much time to ask Lora questions I asked her had she transitioned and she said ‘yes completely’ and was a woman, and the only thing she was unable to do was give birth, although she does have 3 grown up daughters, one of which is at University here in the UK   Lora G is such an amazing person I don’t think there was anyone she didn’t touch, who didn’t end up thinking they were sharing a very special moment. The next gig was at the George Tavern, which Pauline Forster an English artist, performer, musician, designer and landlady of The Tavern in the East End of London, and where Jamie Lovatt a singer and frontman of the band Romance works running the bar, was to meet Lora G and Nikki Lunden then  join the Abbey Road session backing vocals on Nikki Lunden’s new release ‘Where Love Lie’s’   Although I wasn’t asked at this time to go into the Abbey studio, I was invited to play at the club Proud in Camden which was the first of two gigs’ in one evening about 4 miles apart, so I decided to use my car to get to the first gig which is about 7 miles from me, to start at 8 pm, and then onto the 12 Bar Club in Denmark Street with some of the bands gear to originally start at 10,20 pm   We got to the 12 Bar club (2nd gig) at 10pm when as I pulled up to unload my car, an African traffic warden moved in and said ‘you cannot park there’ but I said 'I am only going to be a couple of minutes' his reply 'well make sure you are' we unloaded and went in the club just after 10 pm expecting to play at 10.20 but didn’t go on until gone 11..25 pm because another act was booked and Lora G was the main act of the evening   At 11.22 the c--- of a warden put a parking ticket on the car stating I was unlawfully parked in a disabled bay for 2 minutes until 11.24, however I’ve appealed against the ticket because 1/ there is no disabled bay in Denmark Street the bay I had pulled into was a Permit Holders Only bay and 2/ at 11.22 I took a photo with my mobile phone of the act performing before Lora G went on stage.   Then at 11.25 took another photo of the Lora G bands first number and then shortly after was playing with the band which the whole club could prove, that I was in the club taking photos of the band before performing the numbers that I was playing, and even have the time of the shot’s on the phone lol    The gig went great and Lora said are you coming to the Abbey Road studios? And thinking only vocals were being recorded for their new song said ‘I don’t know maybe if I can get there, but it would be later than they started. I decided to go and give support to the band   I thought I can’t walk into the most famous studio in the world without my instrument, you never know there may be a band that wants some sax, and even when I got to the reception desk I wasn’t sure if my name had been left, or if I would even get in and meekly said I’m with the Lora G band   She replied ‘oh yes you are expected’ (which made me feel really chuffed) ‘I will call them and get one of the studio staff to take you through’ when they came I said ‘Is there any where I can leave my sax cause I don’t think I am playing’ and he replied ‘You can leave it there but I thought they said that you are recording’, which made me perk even up more then said ‘oh alright I will bring it with me’.   The last time I stood in a studio at Abbey Road was about 1972 with a band called ‘The Soul Stars’ given a chance with a free recording session by EMI, but messed it up and lost out. So by now I am feeling really good, here I was having just meet this band, had played 4 gig’s and in the most famous studio’s in the world, All in just one week     By now my feelings for Lora G had grown so much for this very special person, I really can’t say enough about her or the whole band, and when I walked into the studio everyone who respected her automatically accepted me, and I was made to feel very welcomed by Lora who gave me with a hug   When I went down to play I had no idea what was expected. The bass player and second vocalist Kimberly had left the UK early, who’s parts were to be added at a later date once back in LA, so first Lora G and Gerry Doot the drummer had laid down a guide for the vocals to sing over, then Nikki Lunden and Jamie Lovatt had laid down their parts and finally I went down to play.   Being a Nikki Lunden composition I asked her to go down into the studio booth and conduct where she wanted me to play then it was 1, 2, 3, 4, blow, I think most artist are their own worst critics and I really didn’t think I played good, but we played through the song about 4 times and everyone said ok that’s sounds good, and that was it   Then Tony Billings Station Manager & Presenter at Exosphere Radio, Gerry, Jamie, Lora plus the two recording engineers, then came down into the studio and Nikki Lunden then got down on one knee and proposed to Lora G who accepted with the rest of us applauding and congratulating,   Lora then took us all out for a slap up meal with a magnum of Champaign, when I was able to learn a little bit about her past, those that she’s played with, plus some of the missions, beliefs, and the things that matter to her   She has an Amy of loyal followers, and helpers and although I’ve meet many ‘STARS’ during my 40 years of playing none have been as beautiful a person as Lora G. Her trails have given her strength without the nastiness that often ambitious people become and everyone agreed that we had shared a very special moment in time   It wasn’t to be the total end of my involvement with Lora G, on the Saturday I had gone to Denmark Street in the West End to take some photo evidence for the parking ticket Had I gone into the street the way I normally do which is from the other end; what happened next was so unbelievable it questioned my belief regards fate, I had cycled up to the street in the West End, and as I went into that end of the street I just about heard a voice call out Jady   Something made me look around and standing on the corner with a load of band gear was Lora G, Nikki Lunden and Gerry Doot, who should have flown to Paris but because they had so much gear had to rebook a flight from Luton Airport instead of Heathrow, and were in the process of selling gear unable to take it with having received sponsored from Hiwatt amplifiers who had given Lora a whole new bass stack, so I looking after the gear they couldn’t take back for them    I’ve never been one for fate but a string of coincidence or what? I do know my feelings well up inside when I think that I’ve had this amazing ride with very beautiful TS, and a great band, witnessed an engagement and just keep thinking wow, what a ride every time I think about having played 4 gigs and recorded in the most famous studio’s in the world, all in one week.

There are no suspicious circumstances and a file will be prepared and passed to the coroner."In a statement on the school website, head teacher Karen Hardman said: "It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the death of Miss Lucy Meadows."Our staff will be working closely with bereavement teams and are here to offer the children and yourselves any support in any way we can."

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to find out just how many of us fit into another small community known as ASMR? If you don't know what ASMR is, there's still a chance that you get it but you've never heard it given a name before. ASMR is basically when a (usually) audio stimulus triggers a pleasurable response in your brain... the closest anyone's been able to get to describing it is a 'brain orgasm'... But it is NOT a sex thing... I first experienced this when I was about 13 and my geography teacher was talking in a really quiet way... I just sat there with this incredible fuzzy feeling in my head that lasted the entire lesson. I know I'm not alone in getting this but I know that a lot of people don't recognise it. So I wanted to ask you all... Do any of you get this sensation? I figure that as a community we have to be pretty open to admitting things that other people might not understand ;)
