Is etiquette outdated? Often this esoteric topic seems to be
more of a "dinosaur" concept from the past that should be
relegated for all time to Jurassic Park as irrelevant
today. But is it?
Some say that knowing the acceptable rules
and procedures of local or national
etiquette provide for comfortable
social interaction and easier, faster, and more
accurate communication. Since women
tend to guard and advance culture,
women are usually the ones
concerned about etiquette. Women more quickly notice faux
pas when they occur. Therefore, if you wish genetic women to be
more, rather than less, comfortable in your presence as
a transwoman, and if you are determined not to bring
unfavorable negative attention to yourself in public, information
presented in this unique class can help!
Witness Ann's mom's comments that,
"She eats like a man!" She was referring to an elderly
resident who was living in her senior community, a lady who was not
much appreciated by her peers or by my mom. Thus started
our quest to understand what "eating
like a man" meant, and how "eating like a woman"
compared. (And yes, we quickly observed that bad dining etiquette
is not owned by genetic men!)
You may have heard Ann and Rona mention some
etiquette tips at other Southern Comfort Conference seminars they have taught
over the past six years, but this class is much more
detailed and extends the discussion
beyond the horizon of bite size and
chewing with the mouth closed. Our research expanded this
class into other social and business day-to-day
transactions that make our interactions with each other easier
and more enjoyable. The class will reach back to
explore the definition
and history of etiquette so we understand more about how
etiquette has changed but is still relevant today. The class
will explores practical examples
of "how to proceed" in many situations.
for their seventh annual visit to present at the
Southern Comfort conference,
joined by two models, Michelle and Lola. They will
assist demonstrate proper etiquette not only
in dining situations, but also involving proper
introductions, social manners for party and business
situations, gifting, and netiquette. Students will become
more secure in a variety of social situations, and enjoy
the company of 19 others at breakfast. We'd love to have you
join us and help evaluate our brand new class!

"Waist-training and Rib Reduction with Fashionable
and Fun Corsets"
Enrollment not limited; fee included with conference
You've invested time and money to achieve an attractive
female image via cosmetics, hair styling, and possibly
by expensive cosmetic surgery, but how will you guard the
results? What if your face is feminine, but you still have
a boy's figure?
Can that be changed? If you prefer to
comfortably blend into
female society rather than stand out, why sport a beer
belly when it's rather easily converted into a champagne
Corset waist-training is
a reasonably-priced, fun and fashionable way to ensure
continuity of your other investments in image, and align your figure correctly with the
quintessential female hourglass silhouette and narrowed
ribcage and torso. Both temporary AND permanent figure
re-shaping are possible without surgery or pain.
learn the specific "how to" details and see images of those
who have discovered what Ann calls the "magic of corsets
and waist-training." Both transsexuals and crossdressers
can immediately achieve visual reduction of their figure
by choosing the correct style of corset, and they can achieve
permanent results in an amazingly short period of time.
Ann is author of the
seminal book on the topic,
"Corset Magic: A Fun Way
Trim Your Figure". She joins her partner, Rona, and
models Michelle and Toni, to
bring up updated information on healthy and comfortable ways to trim
learn the six elements of effective waist-training, see
inspirational 'before' and 'after' images of students
whom she coaches in the process, and learn detailed ways
to achieve results in pound and inch loss around your
waistline in about three months, or in your ribcage in
about one year of dedicated corseting. It's not difficult,
and it works -- if you work it!
