So Who is This XoYo Character Anyway?

Well, in real life I'm a professional computer nerd, currently working in London, but Scottish by origin. I'm somewhere in my early thirties and have been writing, off and on, for around twenty years. Some years ago I had a few stories published under my real name, but not anywhere you'd be likely to have seen them. I'm planning on getting around to collecting rejection slips again pretty soon, but not with any of the stories you see on this site. These are too personal to send out under my real name. They're also written with a particular audience in mind and, if you've made it this far, that probably means you.

Unlike many TG or transformation story writers, I have no desire to be anything other than what I am (well, except for maybe losing a few pounds). I've been fascinated with the idea of transformations, particularly those of men into women, since an early age. Despite this fascination, I don't consider myself to be anything other than male and have no real leaning towards transsexualism or transvestism. My interest in transformations doesn't end with the transgender types, as some of the stories here may indicate. The first time I can remember having inkling about my fetish was at around age four, when I fantasised about becoming a sparrow.

You may have noticed that the stories in this archive differ from most TG fiction in that they are not written as erotica. There are two main reasons for this. The first is that there are enough people out there writing TG and transformation fiction that works well as erotica. I'm more interested in using my obsession to explore the whole idea of what it means to be male or female and what it means to be transformed or want to be transformed. The other reason is that I'm no damn good at writing erotica. I love reading it, but can't take it seriously when I write it and it just plain turns out badly. Ho hum.

The name XoYo comes from a song by a band called The Passage, who, sadly, split up in 1985. XoYo was probably their best known song, and was released as a single in 1982. I don't think it was any kind of hit, but it got a fair amount of airplay on alternative radio shows (John Peel played it to death!). The song itself is a celebration of sexuality in all its forms, but with special emphasis on bisexuality and the break down of divisions between male and female. It's also really catchy.
