It is a strange fact that many men who identify as heterosexual admit their fantasies about transsexuals or male transvestites preoperatively or postoperatively, while they have no attraction to homosexual or heterosexual men. This attraction is known as gynandromorphophilia, although it is generally expressed in crude pornographic terms as an interest for “women”, “girls with cocks” or “girls”.
According to gay journalist Daniel Harris, who has spent time as a drag-queen, such an individual is easy to understand as “an opportunist who is willing to ignore the imperfections of disguise for the sake of a good pipe, that he has “The sexual vine, as everyone knows, is administered more expertly by men than by women.”
Few studies have been conducted on this phenomenon, although a study by Northwestern University suggests that 51% of respondents who admitted to having attracted transsexuals attracted to them were considered heterosexual. While for many, the attraction for transsexuals was expressed by a sexual desire distinct from their heterosexuality, for some it was the central part of their sexuality. One study cited a heterosexual man interested in trans women, who attributes his appeal to “an exoticism, a singularity, which can not be obtained elsewhere. Their sexuality is very unique in the sense that they are both men and women and that they are neither men nor women. For me, it’s my fascination. ”
The study of the phenomenon poses a major problem: many transsexuals rightly oppose to be classified as “fetishistic objects“. attracted to us, but why does society oblige us to justify this attraction in the first place. I think the question arises because people have already prejudged that being sexually or lovingly attracted by people like me was perverse and immoral.
Although she is right in saying that people should not have to justify their attraction to other consenting adults, the question remains psychological in terms of the psychology of sexuality. According to research conducted by Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam, the answer could lie in the effects of the penis on the male sexual brain. The psychology of evolution suggests that the presence of an erect phallus may indeed have stimulating effects on men, as it is associated with male aggression, territorialism and the attraction of women. The combination of female secondary sexual characteristics with the phallus may have the effect of activating the primitive responses of combat or flight and also orgasm via the sympathetic nervous system.
