For kinksters into crossdressing

'Crossdressing' is a slightly archaic term these days, though some people - usually those who identify definitively with one binary gender but enjoy wearing the clothes of and playing the role of the other for social, sexual, personal or performative purposes - find it one they identify with more than any other. Drag kings and queens are often thought of as crossdressers, as are transvestites - though be very careful when describing someone as a transvestite, as while some crossdressing people self-identify that way it has been used as a slur often enough that it's a word best avoided unless you know someone likes it.

What is crossdressing?

Dressing in the clothing commonly associated with the opposite sex, especially for sexual gratification. This can be done in private or can be more public, eg Drag kings and queens. So a guy dressed in traditionally feminine clothes or a woman dressed in traditionally male outfits would be crossdressing.

I like crossdressing does that make me gay?

Not necessarily, no. Some people just really like the feeling of wearing certain clothes such as lacy, or silky underwear or enjoy looking at themselves dressed as a woman if they’re a man. This doesn’t affect their sexuality at all. You can be straight and like dressing as the opposite gender. However, you identify is the thing that matters.

How do I tell my partner that I crossdress in secret?

It is always good to be honest with your partner, letting them know all about your wants and desires. Answer all your partner’s questions, be ready to accept they might be angry for a time, you have been keeping a big secret after all. It might be a difficult conversation to have, but it is never good to hide your real self from someone you love.

Are crossdressers transgender?

No. Transgender people dress in the clothes of the sex with which they identify. So they’re not really crossdressing at all, they’re expressing their true selves with the clothes they wear. That is very different to crossdressing, when the person is enjoying dressing as a different to the sex they really are. So a transgender person could crossdress if they wanted to, everyone can if they want to!

Our magazine section has plenty of articles on how to find clothes you love, even in sizes that are sometimes difficult to track down or styles that aren't always super common.
    Cosplay is playing dress up with a purpose. It’s not just a generic costume, it’s a representation of a character from a book or a movie. When you dress up as a character who is a different gender to you, this is known as crossplay! Get it? A Mixture of Crossdressing and cosplay. It is something that is growing in popularity and although it can be a perfectly vanilla pastime it can have a wonderfully kinky twist too, when the crossplay is not just for a convention but for sexual role play too. It’s fun to play around with who gets to be the superhero sometimes!
    Sexual role play is a staple of pornography, but all kinds of folks love it out here in the real world too. Plenty of people find that certain things are sexier in imagination than they are in reality; non-consent fantasies are a classic example of this. Other role play ideas are fantasies involving certain stereotyped roles (police officers, schoolgirls, hot mysterious strangers). With role playing games, or RPG, you can explore these things in safety and in comfort, alongside someone who in reality you already know and trust.
