We present some sites that discuss the nature of cross-gender fantasies and what they may mean for those who have them.
Followers of this side are what some people call "cross-dreamers", i.e. people who like to fantasize about being some other gender.
For many this is just a pleasurable "kink", for others it may be a sign of some kind of transgender nature.
Given that there is so little known about such fantasies, and that so much of what is written is blatantly transphobic and stigmatizing, it is good to know that there is information out there presented by other cross-dreamers - people who know what they are talking about.
If you are questioning your own dreams and fantasies, here are a few sites that can be of help.
Crossdream Life is an online forum for all kinds of queer, trans and nonbinary people, but it is known for its open discussions about crossdressing and cross-gender fantasies.
r/crossdreaming is a subreddit devoted to this topic. There is not as much activity as on Crossdream Life, but there are a lot of interesting entries and discussions.
Note that neither of these forums are for selfies and the sharing of erotic content. They are more like places where you discuss the role such fantasies play in our life and what to do about this side of yourself.
Novagirl presents a rather unusual mix of erotic content on the one hand and thorough discussions about the nature of cross-dreaming on the other. So an article about "Feminization Training for Girly Girls" is followed by a critical discussion about why certain parts of sissy fantasies should be avoided. There is a lot of interesting stuff about transgender issues, dysphoria and why "autogynephilia" is a bad concept.
Crossdreamers is a site that was started back in 2008, and it is packed with information about cross-dreaming, research on this type of gender diversity, discussions about art that presents such fantasies, as well as more general discussions on transgender and queer issues. Like Novagirl, the site is highly critical of the autogynephilia theory, while discussing the reality of erotic cross-gender fantasies in accepting ways. See for instance this post: "I feel pretty!" (On the "Autogynephilic" Woman and More)
Lost in Transgender is a site that focuses on the way cross-gender and transgender topics have been covered in the arts, and in particular in movies. There are also articles about how to handle more intense cross-dreaming, including the use of hormones.
Rachel's Haven is an old school forum for people who make and share TG captions. However, it also has a forum sections where members discuss everything related to captioning and crossdressing.
