What is a transvestic fetishist?

Answer:

A transvestic fetischist is a person who gets sexually aroused by fantasies about wearing clothes of the opposite sex. This is different from a transsexual (More) who feels born in the wrong body and wants to belong to the other gender permanently. There are also people who want to experience the world as from another gender, but who do not want to switch gender permanently. They are sometimes labelled transvestics, but are not sexually aroused in the same way as fetishists.
