There’s definitely a sexual and sexually submissive element. My wife had some issues from being domineered in previous marriages so early on I said she should be the shot-caller in the bedroom and that empowerment really paid off. Later, when me being en femme in the bedroom came to be, her being the lead merged well with the new aspect.
But there’s more to it than that. There’s a desire in me and a fulfillment that comes from crossdressing that isn’t sexual. It’s a more sublime feeling of this being the right and proper way for me to dress.
Sometimes I just sit in my chair, feeling the sensation of my bra and panties on my body and think, “Yes!” I’m so very thankful to have my mind expressed on my body in ways my body itself cannot express.
Maybe that’s just a very long way of saying, “It makes me happy.”
