Who Wears The Panties In The Family?
I just posted my Advice Goddess column on crossdressing. Here's an excerpt:

There’s a U.S. senator who can’t speak publicly unless he’s wearing pantyhose. He was a patient of Dr. William Stayton, a psychologist and leading expert on cross-dressing. “Underneath his blue suit and tie he wore pantyhose and a bra and women’s underwear,” Stayton told me in a recent interview. “He was always worried somebody would lift his pant leg and see his pantyhose. But it was the only way he could calmly speak before the Senate.”

So, one man’s Prozac is another man’s pantyhose. So what? My boyfriend compared the senator’s cross-dressing to his own penchant for hats. “When I wear my Henschel High Roller I have a totally different outlook. You swagger a bit, you just know you’re cool. I take the hat off, and I’m just another guy.”

The rest is here.

I've known a couple of guys who were very comfortable in their masculinity, but who would use every costume party as a opportunity to cross dress. I don't know what they wore under their clothes every day. They were pretty open about enjoying cross-dressing for fun to express a different side of themselves. It always seemed fairly harmless to me, as long as the signifigant other isn't trying to hide it from you.

Have a costume party and invite Brits, and a large portion, or all, or most, of them will come dressed as chicks. Seen it time and time again. Weird!
