Pandemic vs. Crossdressing

August 18, 2020


I have avoided discussing the COVID-19 pandemic on my blog.  I guess I just was not interested in going there…  Being locked in at home has had a profound impact on my opportunities to go out and wear something pretty.  I assume that I am not the only crossdresser who is feeling this.  This is tough.

My wife knows that I am a crossdresser.  She does not love it.  She does love me.  Sometimes, I will wear a skirt or dress in the evening after our kids (who do not know that I crossdress) are in bed.  Dressing like this is not particularly pleasant.  I feel awkward about dressing up very much, so I will wear a T-shirt with a skirt while barefoot, or something limited like that.

If you are new to my story, I am a man who sometimes incorporates women’s wear into my male life.  I try to maintain my masculinity while wearing something pretty.

My wife does not make negative comments when I dress around her.  Yet, I feel that she is uncomfortable about it.  In truth, she really has become rather comfortable with it all.  She sits by me on the bed and we watch TV.  She seldom touches me when I am dressed like this.  Maybe we will hold hands.  Ultimately, I feel like she wants less of me when I am dressed pretty.  That is OK.  I understand.

I guess what I am trying to express is: Wearing something pretty to only sit on the bed and watch television is about as fulfilling as going out into the garage and sitting on a parked motorcycle.  Going out in public is a special part of wearing nice clothing.  This virus and our failed efforts to contain it has stolen this special part of crossdressing from us, for the most part.

Occasionally, I will drive to a far-away grocery store and do some shopping.  That takes FOREVER because of the long drive.  Otherwise, I would have to leave the family to go out in public for no apparent reason.  Purpose is very nice to have…  Furthermore, going out for any reason is an opportunity to catch/spread this virus.  The responsible thing to do is to stay at home.

So, maybe this is a matter of responsibility vs. crossdressing…  blech.

    I feel for you.

    Luckily we have no lockdown here so I can go out whenever and wherever I like, and I am a widower so I don’t have to worry about my wife’s disapproval. Unfortunately my grown children are still living at home so I can’t dress at home at all!

    Well, I said wherever but in fact I can’t easily travel to another country because of the pesky virus so I am stuck in one country while friends and family who I want to visit are in several others. I suppose it might seem a bit much to complain about being confined when I have over 350 thousand square kilometres to roam in but it is playing havoc with visits to family and old friends not to mention cross-dressing and newer friends and my sex life (ha! what sex life?)!
