Why Do Men Crossdress?

By Zoe

why-do-men-crossdress-shoes If you want to know why men crossdress then the answers are below. These have been taken from a survey that was completed on over 400 men who crossdress. As you read through the list you may be suprised at some of the reasons but none the less it goes to show the complexity of the reasons behind why men choose to wear clothes of the opposite sex.

It is very easy for loved ones or close family members to naturaly think that men who crossdress are Gay or don’t enjoy being a man. These assumptions are true for some but for a majority of others could not be further from the truth.

All of the reasons why men crossdress below are from readers of Crossdressing Freedom who completed the survey. Only personal information has been removed.
