Unfortunately, even sex researchers do not have a clear answer to this question. If there is, you won’t be reading this article.
As a crossdresser, I’d like to start with my own experience. The obsession towards female clothes started when I was little, about 7 years old. I liked wearing my mom’s bras and under wears very much. When I was 14 years old, I saved my packet money for weeks just to buy a pantynose. Then I took it to a restroom nearby and wear it under my pants and went home.
Up to now, I still enjoy wearing female clothes, especially bras and panties. I can’t explain where this feeling comes from. It’s beyond my control after not wearing it for a few days. The public consider this behavior as a kind of parasexuality. As far as they concern, it is pure for sexual satisfactory. But it is definitely not that simple. When I was 7 years old, I did not have the concept of sex. I just think those women who dressed in pantynose are so pretty and irresistible.
I have several friends who have the same hobby as me. They said that they feel more confortable in women’s clothes. Some said they want to be viewed as women. As a result, they not only dress like women, they also act like women. Wearing makeup, wearing bras, high-heels and so on. While others said it’s just for their sexual desire. There are some men think that they do not like to be men. Some do not mind being a man, but still like dressing like women occasionally. Some of them just looking for the experience of social contact or fashion.
Despite all of the theories, it is still a mystery why some men like crossdressing. Even some of the crossdressers are confused about themselves, some even feel guilty. With the increasing acceptance of people feel about the various expression of sex, more and more crossdresser and transgender people come to the public to share their story and even discuss it with their family and friends. They no longer defend for themselves and no longer humiliated as well.
Crossdressing is another term for transvestism. The difference between crossdressing and trans-sexuality as well as between the two between homosexuality often get confused with one another. A typical crossdresser should be a normal person when he’s not wearing female clothes. He may not be gay and more likely to have woman to be his sexual partner. More importantly, he love his penis.
For many crossdresser, most of them had at least tried once to wear female clothes. It was maybe for the purpose of sexual stimulus. While for typical transgender men, they believe they are women who are trapped inside of a man’s body. They think it is a mistake that they have men’s reproductive organ and do not accept it. They want to get rid of it.
I hope the researchers can quickly find out the cause of crossdresser, homosexuality and transgender. I always believe that these behaviors are not abnormal, but has something to do with our DNA or something. We are not pervert.
