Oh My God ...That is an interesting question . Thinking back I remember when I was around 10 sneaking into my mom's closet and slipping on a pair of her black high heel pumps. I had never felt anything so incredible in my life. They gave me tingles. Over the years I managed to "borrow" a few pair of her silk stockings (I kept the stockings hidden in my room. Even as a young child I was bigger than my mom and clearly stretched them out.) Any time I was left home alone I would slip those on and make my way to the closet to walk around and enjoy the feeling.
The first time I was fully cross dressed was in my late 20s ... it was a role switching party and I absolutely loved it. I knew then that I was in trouble ... one of my life long fetishes turned out to be even more fun than I could have imagined.
I still dress today although not as much. I really want to look better than I do but don't have the patience to take hours applying make up or the money to buy expensive corsets and body shapers. So I do enjoy the feel of silk and satin on my body and dress enough to get my engine going but not nearly as often as I would like to.
