Are Infantilists also (or actually) Transvestites?
The term 'transvestite' generally refers to someone who dresses across gender lines using the clothing and accessories normally associated with the opposite sex. Aren't infantilists (AB's) also 'transvestites' because they dress across age lines using the clothing and accessories normally associated with someone of a different age? e.g. high-heels v. booties, etc.
As a transvestite, I feel feminine when I dress. I use it to relieve stress. Although there is a sexual part, I can spend hours feeling feminine but not aroused.
The same seems to be true of me as an adult baby. Although, for me, there is a sexual part, AB is not about the clothing, it's the child-like feelings that they produce. I can spend hours regressed but not aroused.
For both, it's the clothing and accessories that put me in a different head-space (child-like or feminine). NOTE: I think you could include the 'Sissy' here and the 'sub' headspace.
As for the sexual part, for some (with the exception of the non-sexual AB's), there is also a clothing fetish aspect to both transvestism and infantilism. e.g. diapers (DL) and panties.
How many of you out there have both kinks? Does gender cross-dressing and age cross-dressing play the same role in our life (stress release, etc.)?
