This article is about sex, and will probably be one of most read articles, and for some, probably one of the most disappointing. And if you feel you may be offended, look away now. I once remarked in a previous article that there is a sexual dynamic to crossdressing, and added that the sex can be fantastic, and I fully stand by that statement. However, there are those who try to claim that all crossdressers are sexual fetishtists, or even perverts. Not only is this untrue, but as to the sexual dynamic attached to crossdressing, I say so what, would like to know just what business it is of the accuser, and would ask them who gave them the right to judge?
Crossdressers Assemble! Is it a Fetish?
Transvestic fetishism - Wikipedia
What causes a heterosexual male to cross-dress? Do cross dressers share any characteristics other than the desire to cross-dress and the guilt that usually accompanies such desire? Are there any reliable therapies to help the cross-dresser resist and overcome his cross-dressing urges? Will the urge to cross-dress dissipate with age? Are there any good books or articles that explain the cross-dressing urge in a sympathetic way, such that a wife may come to understand this phenomenon?
In the last few weeks I have been in conversation with my partner and other couples who have been discussing fetishes and how it applies to the act or art of crossdressing. As shown below, a fetish is a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc. Based on that definition, it would seem that crossdressing could be a fetish if it was used primarily as a way to achieve a sexual release. I do admit that there is sensuality to dressing as a woman.
