Within the “new terms” in sexuality is usually talking about crossdressing. ¿Do you know what it is? Do you want to know who practices it? I tell you everything in the following lines.
Crossdressing means dressing as the opposite gender would: if you are a man you dress as you would typically do, and if you are a woman you dress as a man would. Usually the term used to talk about this has been transvestism.
Generally, it is usually men who practice crossdressing more frequently, wearing skirts, heels, makeup … In women it is less common, but it can also happen. Why not? It is simply a form of expression and of living that man / woman duality that we all have in our person.
Of course, it is very important to bear in mind that being a transvestite or practicing crossdressing has nothing to do with your sexual orientation or sexual identity:
That a person likes to wear a skirt, pants or whatever has nothing to do with that you like men or women. It is generally thought that, for example, a man who enjoys dressing up in heels has to be gay, but he has the same logic as thinking that because I like football, I have to like lentils. Tastes are just that, tastes.
That a person likes to dress like the opposite gender does not mean that he feels the opposite gender. Personal / sexual identity is not related to sexual preferences.
Generally, this type of “costume changes” are made in privacy, to enjoy one alone or as a couple. Look, a “role play” would be exactly the same, in this case the only extra are the complements. Another alternative is the premises and spaces designed for this type of practice.
