Wow~ I'm grateful for all the responses!
CDNBear, what's BDSM stand for btw? I've seen it while I was perusing websites but haven't foudn the definition for it.
OK before I go any further, I'll just reveal a little why I'm writing this story. Guess I've always had a little androgyny in me....a 'maleness' you could say. I've always been a tomboy but even now, there are times when I scoff at true soft femininity...I feel that it's too sissy for me..
and hence I've always wondered about men having this desire to cross dress, straight men and gay men. OK, I'm learning to accept 100& masculinity or femininity but I do believe that whatever sex you are there are hormones of the opposite sex that affect our behaviours, after all all males were once females in the first 6 weeks of life having XX chromosomes in them.
So is the world predominantly female? I dunno.
So the story is about 2 couples and their lives interweaved. One is a straight man with a straight wife, who has a family and a high-flying career who secretly cross-dresses but falls in love with a transgender (gay man) who is in an abusive relationship with his partner, a bisexual. Yeah, complicated, right? But the story explores how alienated these characters can be in society and even then can't seem to get it right in their own alternative-world relationships.
Moral of the story: A rel'ship is a rel'ship. It's gonna take work and courage whether it's straight or gay.
CNDBear, there are some things I still need to know like what goes through a cross dresser's mind when he wears woman's clothing and why exactly is he drawn to them besides the softness of the material?
And you know how some prance around the mirror? Wonder if that's true and how are some straight men cross dressers able to hide their fetish from their wives?
Would appreciate the help! Thanks!
