Wow Mona – great discussion.
This is something I’ve actually thought about a lot – and I still don’t think I’ve figured it out.
But you are onto something – it’s not just the clothes. I think when I started I thought it was. But as I allowed myself to do more with it, and realized I could get wigs, and corsets, and shoes that actually fit, and everything else, well. It went from it sure is fun to put on the wife’s slip on heels and a short skirt to OMG it’s so fun to actually look like a woman!
I think I’ve always thought it would be fun to “be” a woman or a girl. I’ve always fantasized about what it must feel like to walk about in just a skirt and your undies (now I know!), and to have breasts (not really, but they LOOK pretty good!) and to be pretty (now we’re stretching, but I do try).
As I believe I’ve stated before, I don’t really see myself as a female, but just as me – a guy who likes to “imitate” females, and to do the best he can at it. Once I started going down the path I just seem to enjoy it more, and I want to keep doing a better job of it. There’s just something thrilling that comes over me when I begin to get dressed, and do my makeup, and the wig, and the jewelry! And the few times I’ve been out – well, I suppose part of it is I’ve just not done it much, and there is risk, so it’s partly just the thrill of getting away with it. But even apart from that, the feeling of walking along in a skirt with the fabric swishing across your bare legs and a nice pair of heels, your hair brushing your neck, your earrings moving just a little, your shoulders and upper back open to the sun – it’s something divine.
So thanks for the topic – made me think!
