Transvestism

Nature:

Transvestism, the adoption of the dress and/or behaviour of the opposite sex, is often representative of repressed homosexuality; in addition to its illegal status in many countries, it may be indicative of severe mental imbalance.

For a man or woman who has no doubts as to his or her sex, transvestism is the sometimes erotic pleasure (a form of fetishism) of disguising oneself as a person of the opposite sex.
