Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

There is no need to have a sex change operation unless you want one.

And if you want to wear pantyhose and girdles that is perfectly OK and up to you.

It is, when things are all said and done, a perfectly harmless thing to do.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

I am male and would rather crossdress than have sex. Does this mean I have a fetish orentail disorder?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 1 year ago.

I would not call it a disorder.....just a variation of human sexuality.

If, however, this activity is causing problems in your life then you might want to discuss your desires with a psychologist so you can better integrate you wearing of pantyhose and girdles with your daily life.

Does this make sense to you?
