    Hello Everyone!

    I’m sitting here in bed being pretty brave by using my phone on CDH while my wife sleeps a foot away…

    I was going through Kindle and Audible looking for books on crossdressing. Unfortunately (for me, maybe not for you?) there were a ton of erotic stories and forced feminization stories but the few non-fiction books I found either didn’t have good reviews or the descriptions of the books content was not helpful in making a decision.

    The kind of books I am looking for would include subjects like-

    The psychology behind crossdressing

    Beginner makeup and presentation tips for men who crossdress

    What do I do when I find out my husband is a crossdresser….

    Not limited to these 3 examples…..

    If you have read any good books on crossdressing please reply with titles and authors and such. I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you all for being so wonderful!

      I’d like a fiction book with a character that is a “normal” maybe even part-time CD. I’d especially like a space on ship based Sci-Fi book with such a character.

      Thanks to everyone for these suggestions, I’ve also been looking for such books!

      I think that only book I’ve ever read about crossdressing is “My husband Betty : Love, Sex, and Life With a Crossdresser” by Helen Boyd.  I was looking more for a book by a crossdresser, or about crossdressing.  Nevertheless, an interesting perspective from the wife of a crossdresser.

      Helen Boyd has also written “She’s Not the Man I Married: My Life with a Transgender Husband,” which I have not read.

      I may have also read “Vested Interests:  Cross-dressing and Cultural Anxiety” by Marjorie Garber.  If so, I don’t remember anything about it.

      The crossdresser and his wife,  My husband wears my clothes both books by Peggy Rudd. They are both very good books to introduce your wife to your crossdressing.

        OMG I NEED Alice in Genderland if for no other reason than the title. I have what could be considered an unhealthy obsession with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Like tattoos and collectibles obsession.

      Hi Autumn,

      To be honest , I haven’t looked far, but someone recommended (it must have been on cdh) “Living with Cross Dressing” by Savannah Hauk, and I’ve bought and read it It’s not ‘make up’ oriented and some things might seem a bit introductory for those of us who regularly come to cdh for words of wisdom, but maybe give it a look?

      I’m not at all recommending amazon, but their (uk) listing for this book is useful in that there’s a 4.5 star rating from 32 reviewers – see what they have to say too.

          The very best book on cross-dressing Ive read so far is “Satisfying Your Female Alter Ego” by Stephanie Kingpin. Got it as an ebook through Amazon.com. It covers alot of information and advice, also delves into the history and perspectives on CD. Aurora Borealis

        This is the only one I have read.  My wife also read it as her intro into cding.  I told her not all of it applied but let her read it through and ask questions.  It was a good introduction for her reiterating some of the things that I have explained or tried to explain.  It does not try to explain why we do it in any depth.  It helped us talk about it more.
