Transvestic fetishism: arousal from cross dressing. (Impersonators not TF unless X-dressing ass. W/ arousal.) Surveys: 87% hetero, 60% married, 65% college ed, 40% experience arousal/ orgasm during, 93% prefer complete x- dress, but only 14% went out in public Many (20-30%) heterosexual men engage in partial or full X- dressing as a turn-on. Similar to use of porn for arousal and autosexual release, not a gender identity issue. As transvestic males mature, perhaps 1/10th of them (2% to 3% of all males) progress to occasional full X-dressing in private, or clubs for X-dressers.
