Bee Armitage is one of my favorite girls , not just because of her work in the adult entertainment industry, but because of her wonderful personality. I knew she was straight forward and direct, but I wanted to find out more about her. So here we go!
Caramel: Hi, Bee. My first question is, what was your motivation behind choosing the name Bee Armitage other than the fact that it has a nice ring to it?
Bee: Bee is a nickname a lot of friends gave me because of my random and busy attitude. Armitage is actually my last name! haha craziness.
Caramel: You’re living in Vegas, having left L.A., but were raised in North Carolina. I know the South pretty well and assuming you’re feeling a lot more free being yourself in Hollywood than you did in N.C. Was there a burning desire for you to get out of there and move to a big city?
Bee: There are so many differences between the west coast and the South where I lived. Once Grooby offered to fly me to LA and shoot me a bunch of times for Shemale Yum and Frank’s T-Girl World, I went for it instantly. People that I have become close to on the west coast are much busier and more motivated, which is great because they aren’t constantly gossiping and caring so much about what other people are doing. They have their own ambitions to see through to the end.
Caramel: When you were very young, did you relate more to girls more than boys and were you more interested in what they were doing?
Bee: I always related more towards girls from as early as I can remember. It mostly started off as confusion, then lead to jealousy as I became more aware of my feelings.
Caramel: Did you use the Internet a lot to try to figure out what was going on with you mentally and emotionally and find out via the Net that you identified with other transgenders?
Bee: When I first learned what being transgendered was, it definitely resonated. I scoured the Internet and met various people on forums and such, just trying to learn a little about myself. I made some mistakes, as children are wont to do. You have to be careful on the Internet! It’s sort of an imaginary world that can become real if you let it, you know?
Caramel:: I certainly do, Bee. I often think of The Net is like a vacuum designed to devour your mind and it’s so easy to get sucked in. You have to know how to control it or it will control you. For many of us, our first time dressing up is sort of a test run. Your first time was just a silly play event with your sister, but when was the first time you dressed alone and took it seriously?
Bee: The first time I dressed alone and took it seriously was some time early on in my teen years, and some of my friends knew about it and helped out. It was secretive, but fun!
Caramel: How did you first acquire your first feminine wardrobe and how did you manage to hide it from your family?
Bee: I just went out and bought it from stores. I always kinda looked like a girl, so I got away with it. If I tried at all to make myself look feminine, it worked out. I was blessed with a very well off family, so living in a huge house made it easy to hide things. I dressed up somewhat secretly. I mean, even as a boy I wore girls pants and make up. So, I guess I only secretly would wear dresses. When you look like a girl even dressed as a boy, it makes it easier, but blurs the lines of what constitutes “dressing up”.
Caramel: Did you ever wish you were born a genetic female?
Bee: I used to wish I was born a genetic female, but I like being transgendered way more now. I am very happy with it.
Caramel: Did you ever go through purging stages – trying to deny your femininity and throwing away female clothing only to start a new wardrobe again from scratch?
Bee: Like I said earlier, being feminine or looking like a girl didn’t depend so much on the clothes, so purging wouldn’t exactly matter. I did try looking and acting more masculine for a while to give it an honest go, but it didn’t feel natural.
Caramel: Your roommate was a genetic female and you went from being just friends to being involved in a relationship after 8 months. Did she see you in both girl and boy modes and have an understanding about what you were going through?
Bee: She saw me at my most feminine and my most masculine. When she met me she didn’t know that I was born a boy. Transition was always very simple for me, so it wasn’t an issue or something I was going through. It really didn’t get talked about a lot.
Caramel: Were you also interested in guys and if so, did your girlfriend know about it?
Bee: I have always been interested in guys. Since puberty, they are what I am most attracted to. I have never really been in serious relationships with guys because they kinda scare me. Every now and then an awesome girl will come along and things work out. My ex gf knew about that, I mean, she dated guys too.
Caramel: How did you meet Bailey Jay and end up working with her?
Bee: I met Bailey when Joey Silvera was going to do another DVD with her and they needed another transgirl to shoot with. I don’t think she had even heard of me at this point, but Joey championed for me to be the other girl. Bailey and I talked on the phone a couple times and were on the same page and got along very well. We did the scene and became fast friends and now we live together. She is an amazing person.
Caramel: Your hardcore scene with Bailey is a cult porn classic already. With all due respect to Bailey, you’re no less exciting and attractive than she is. You two both have different a different vibe. Did you ever consider launching an adult website of your own?
Bee: I did consider launching a site, but now I am content with not being an adult film actress at all. I kinda want to settle down with someone, travel a bit, etc. I have enough money to live a comfortable life and just do other things. I don’t regret doing porn, though.
Caramel: So you don’t identify as being a transbian. Do you think the person you’ll end up settling down with will be a man?
Bee: I will probably end up with a man. Though, I do think girls are amazing in their own right. Who knows!
Caramel: Well, you certainly have some great options. Are you currently on hormones?
Bee: I am sort of on hormones! It’s a random thing. I can be forgetful.
Caramel: I can relate to that. Do you ever consider undergoing SRS (Sex Reassignment Surgery)?
Bee: I will never have SRS unless they can make me able to birth a child.
Caramel: LOL Wouldn’t that be great? Do you plan to have breast surgery? Personally, I prefer natural hormonal tits and I like the way you look now and not sure you’d look better with a boob job. Ultimately, you’re going to do what feels best for you, but I just had to ask.
Bee: I like my natural hormone chest, I doubt I will get breast surgery ever. They are what they are.
Caramel: What are your favorite physical attributes?
Bee: I personally like broad shoulders and wrists the most. And I like overly tall people.
Caramel: You must know that a lot of transgenders would kill and die to look as “passable” as you. Do you find it strange that you look so feminine and that matches your inner being?
Bee: I used to think about that a lot. Maybe I am just blessed and it’s totally random. Or maybe I really was meant to be a girl and something went crazy at the last second. I’m not sure how it went down, but I am grateful.
Caramel: Your voice is ultra-feminine. Did you ever use some sort of voice-training system?
Bee: I didn’t use any kind of training system. Again, just very blessed!
Caramel: You can say that again. I’m sure a lot of transbians out there will be thinking, “I don’t know if I want to sleep with her or be her.” Do you have any particular fetishes and are you into BDSM at all?
Bee: I don’t really have any fetishes to speak of. I mean, things can get wild sometimes and that’s cool, but I am pretty dull when it comes to sex; as I have a painfully low sex drive.
Caramel: Do you prefer to top or bottom in bed?
Bee: I am always a bottom.
Bee: Five years from now I will be doing the same thing I do now: Whatever I want.
Bee. Thanks for the questions! I hope I answered them well.
Caramel: You answered every question I had candidly. Some people think that good looks are the best currency, but I think it’s honesty.
You can find Bee at Model Mayhem.
