Man wor­ries that his wife can’t ac­cept his cross-dress­ing urges

The China Post - - TV & COMICS -

DEAR AN­NIE: I am 50 years old. Af­ter 10 years of mar­riage, I feel I must tell my wife of the rea­son for my de­clin­ing abil­ity to per­form in the bed­room.

Af­ter three months with­out in­ti­macy, she re­quested that I see a doc­tor and I agreed to do so. How­ever, what she doesn’t know is that in or­der to have a mar­riage with this won­der­ful woman, I have been sup­press­ing my de­sire to cross- dress.

I have been search­ing the In­ter­net for days to find a ther­a­pist who can help me bring this is­sue out in an ap­pro­pri­ate way. Many of the web­sites I’ve seen don’t ap­pear to be pro­fes­sional.

I don’t want to talk to my wife with­out a pro­fes­sional present be­cause I fear dis­as­trous re­sults. I love her dearly. What do you sug­gest?

— No Life With­out Wife

Dear No Life: We sug­gest you con­tact The So­ci­ety for the Sec­ond Self at Tri- ess. org and ask whether they can re­fer you to a ther­a­pist. You also can look online or in your phone book for a gen­der ther­a­pist or ask your doc­tor to re­fer you to some­one.

Please don’t keep your wife in the dark. She de­serves to know the truth about what’s go­ing on, and she can also be a source of sup­port.
