From cross-dressing to altering one's sex by undergoing
hormone therapy and radical surgery, "gender blending"
has reached new levels of popularity. Gender Blending is an up-to-date

frontiers of human sexuality. The changes occurring in this area
of lifestyle research are vast and rapid. This book looks at biological,
sociological, psychological, historical, anthropological, religious,
and other aspects of gender blending to find common ground among
researchers in all areas. By representing a unique collaboration
of experts and those involved in gender blending, this groundbreaking
work could spell the beginning of a sexual renaissance.
Gender Blending includes essays on transvestism (cross-dressing),
gender heresy, androgyny, religion and the cross-dresser, transgender
healthcare, free expression, sex change surgery, loving transvestites,
gender blending in literature, virtual gender, counseling and
treatment, the law and transsexuals, and much more.
