Sulka: A Vintage Shemale

byCal Y. Pygia©

Sulka is difficult, but not impossible, to find on the Internet. Her heyday is long past, after all. For many oldsters, however, this vintage shemale was their first exposure to the phenomenon of transsexual sex. In 1980, she starred in her first feature film, Dream Lovers. Thereafter, she starred in Transformation of Sulka (1981), Sulka and Candy (1982), Divine Atrocities (1983), Sulka's Daughter (1984), She-Male Toga Party (1988), Sulka's Nightclub (1989), She-Male Tales (1990), Beauty and the Beast (1995), Prime Cuts of Sulka (1999), Sulka Superstar (2002), Paul Barresi Superstar (2003), She-Male Sperm Whores 5 (2004), and Sulka's Shemale Encounters (2008).

She also appears in a number of sleazy magazines devoted to, or featuring, transsexuals. One of these publications, Sensuous Sulka, informs potential readers that "Only Sulka could offer a man the big breasts of a girl and the hot, hard penis of a man" and includes photographs of her masturbating, showering, baring her body outdoors, wearing lingerie, and performing as a dominatrix. Sulka also appears in such other magazines as Sensuous Sulka: Superstar, and The Best of Club International 13.

Most often, Sulka appears as a redhead, but she also goes blonde at times. The surviving photographs of her are of poor quality, with a grainy look that makes it difficult to determine for certain even whether she is circumcised or not (she appears to be in some pictures, but not in others). She is an exotic-looking tranny, of Asian ethnicity, it seems. She frequently outlines her small, narrow, almond-shaped eyes in thick, heavy mascara. She has an oval face with a pointed chin and high cheekbones. The bridge of her nose is thin, and the tip is small and button-like. Although her mouth is small, she has sensuous, full lips, which she generally colors red.

Her breasts are large and, despite their being artificial, appear natural. Her hips are narrow, as is her waist. Her legs, although slender, are shapely and of average length. Most of her photographs show her from the front, probably to accentuate the incongruity of her having both breasts and male genitals (in her pre-op days, anyway), but those that provide viewers a glimpse of her delightful derriere show that her fanny is firm, round, sleek, and inviting. Overall, Sulka has an exquisitely lovely body, and her face, despite its exotic features, is attractive. Sulka is certainly not a shemale whom any sane man would kick out of his bed.

Sulka's face, although attractive, is unusual. She looks, in fact, a bit like a porcelain doll come to life. The artificiality of her appearance suggests that there may be more false about her than meets the eye (especially when she is dressed), and, of course, there is: she's a chick with a dick (or, if one prefers, a dude with boobs). Her exotic looks remind viewers that she is a man-made woman, rather than a God- or nature-made woman, and the oddity of her being, as it were, both male and female and, at the same time, neither sex makes her fascinating and alluring. After all, were the truth to be told, most (maybe all) men who delight in shemales like a little man in their woman--and a little woman in their man.

Sadly, of the person Sulka herself, little is known, despite the hyperbolic references on some websites and DVD cases to her having been "the world's most famous [or, sometimes, beautiful] transsexual." Biographical information concerning her is lacking, to say the least. What is known is precious little: Sulka started out as a transvestite, but underwent a complete and successful sex change, eventually trading her male genitals for a man-made cunt, the operative condition of which she proves in Sulka's Wedding. In fact, her artificial pussy works so well, Sulka's Daughter (starring born-again Christian Desiree Lane as the fruit of Sulka's loins) alleges, that Sulka is able to conceive, bear, and deliver a child--anything is possible in the movies!

The surviving pictures of Sulka usually show her alone, posing nude, rather than participating (even with only herself) in sexual acts, although at least one shows her being sucked off by a handsome stud. Sulka starred with such other vintage shemales as the late Julie Bond, post-operative Carnal Candy, Jennifer Thomas, the late Dana Douglas, Angelique Ricard, and African-Americans Sylvia and Lisa Lawrence (the latter of whom, still active, has her own official website).

Perhaps the two most widely known and appreciated of Sulka's films are Sulka's Wedding and Sulka's Daughter.

In the former film, Sulka has finally undergone her sex-change operation and is eager to try out her new genitals before getting married. Directed by Mike Styker, Sulka's Wedding, which runs 80 minutes, was released in 1983 by Caballero.

The latter movie, which predates Transamerica, has a plot that is similar to that of the mainstream movie: When a young woman leaves home to go it alone, her parents decide that it's high time that she learned the truth about her true mother, the transsexual Sulka, who partners with Ron Jeremy's character, with whom she owns an adult movie business. Their leading lady has just quit, and they must find someone else to star in their films. Directed by Kim Christy, Sulka's Daughter, which runs 86 minutes, was released in 1985 by Caballero.

Although she hasn't been in a movie in years, Sulka's films can still be ordered online; a diligent search of the Web will link you to newly released DVDs that star her and her transsexual, straight, and gay friends.
