Frank is a 35 year old Caucasian male who presented to your office with concerns over some of his sexual interests and behaviors. Ever since he can remember he has
been interested in womens clothing. At the age of 14 he started masturbating while wearing his sisters dresses. He has kept this a secret from his family and
friends. In school he was well liked and had a few girlfriends. It wasnt until he went to college did he start wearing his girlfriends clothing in secret. He
feels fortunate that he was never caught. He is married now and has 2 children. He wears his wifes dresses while masturbating in the privacy of his own home. He
loves his wife but he is concerned that if she ever found out that she would leave him. For this he feels bad and believes that he is sick. He only participates in
this behavior once in a while like when his wife takes the children to visit their grandparents. He has a good sex life with his wife and does not require the use of
female clothing. He has a good job working as a paramedic and has lots of friends. Frank is coming to you for help. How would you work with him? Does he require
treatment? What would you tell him about his sexual behavior? What is it called? Would you diagnose him with a disorder? Why or why not? Does he have a problem?
Why or why not?
