If I Could Be A Man For A Day
This request intrigued me. It was something different; something that really made me think. If I could be a man for a day, what would I do? I had to give this a lot of thought. Do I get to choose who I am, or am I just a random guy, who kind of looks like me, just manly? So many questions and thoughts ran through my head. I had to take a break before I wrote this, to gather my thoughts together.
After Much Thought
Allright, I am back. I have given this a lot of thought. There, of course, would be a long session of examining, and hopefully admiring, my temporary new body in the mirror. I imagine I would look a little like myself. My eye color would be the same, maybe my hair is darker. I think I would look a little like my brother. I have no idea what he looks like naked, so this is all just a guess. I am in decent shape now, so I don't see how that would change much. I can't imagine going from the fit, curves-in-the-right-places woman that I am now, to an over-weight, out of shape man, but who knows... Breasts have slimmed down to nice pectorals, hips have slimmed a little, as well. Overall, I am happy with the way I look. Now I had better get dressed! I am generally a casual girl, so as a guy, I would probably dress maybe in a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, whatever. Casual and comfortable.
Now that I have given myself a thorough once-over, and have managed to dress myself. What exactly would I do? Hmmm....
A Woman's Mind in a Man's Body
I have often wondered what life is like on the other side of the gender gap. I have often been told by many of my male friends that I think more like a guy than any woman they have met. I don't know if this is a good thing or not. Coming from a guy, I would assume that it is a compliment. I think this mindset would make me uniquely suited to being in the body of a man, just for one day, of course. I love being a woman, and would never change it for anything in the world.
I think, for starters, I would venture out into the world, and just wander around. I love to simply walk about and people watch. Sometimes I will head to a park, sit on a bench with my book, and pretend to read. Instead of absorbing myself in the book, I observe the world around me. It's so much easier to watch people when they think that you aren't watching them. It's nothing creepy, I just feel I can better understand the world around me by watching and observing the people who surround me every day.
I want to see the sort of reactions I get in this alien body. How do people perceive me? Am I noticed, or am I just a face in the crowd? I would carry about my normal activities as someone else. The ultimate disguise. How does the lady at the grocery store react to this man before her? How different is it from the way she reacts to the real me?
I am fascinated by human behavior and social interactions. I know how I see things when I am a woman, and I see how I am looked at. I am rarely taken seriously, I am often confronted with rudeness, disgust and all manners of attitudes. How would life be different if I had been born a man? These things intrigue me. I thirst for knowledge, I hunger for it. What better way to understand men, than to be one, just for a day?
Thank You, Cris A, for letting me know about this!
A Little Deception?
I know that if I were given this ability to be a man for a day, I could certainly use it to my advantage. But, there is a certain point where it can be taken too far. I could easily imagine myself using this manly form to gain certain information, and who knows what else, that would otherwise be off limits for me.
I could gain the confidence of my own boyfriend, and find out what secrets lie there. That may take longer than a day, but I can imagine the information that could be gathered, even in that short amount of time. I could even make specific problems in my life go away, permanently. Money issues gone, my brother-in-law, taken care of. How can the police find a bank robber, if by the next day, he doesn't even exist anymore? I would never do these things, but when you let your mind wander, the possibilities are endless, and all sorts of nefarious behavior and ideas have a tendency to creep in.
The Matter of Sex
Admit it, men and women alike have all wondered, at some point, what sex is like for the other person involved. If you are gay or lesbian, of course, this is an easier thing to figure out. If you are straight, however, it's a much more difficult puzzle to solve. What does sex feel like for a man? I have no idea, and when I ask my male friends, or my lovers, I get a generalized answer. "It feels really good!" Well, OK. It feels really good for me, too. But what does it feel like? What goes through your head? What does your body feel?
I won't go into a great deal of detail, here. Adult content, and all. I just wonder what that is like from the other side of things. I think, if I had the chance to be a guy for a day, that is one thing I would definitely explore. And, after reading Pest's hub on Self-love (which sadly, is no more), I may just have to explore that, as well. Thank you in advance, Pest, for the useful tips!
After that rather full, and exciting day as a man, I am sure I will be more than ready to crawl into bed, and wake up, refreshed, in the morning, once again the woman I love being. Men, I love you!!! All of you, but you can't beat being a woman!!
