John Irving: Why Men Like To Dress In Women's Clothing

There's a lot of cross-dressing in Irving's new book, Until I Find You. I simply have never quite understood why men would want to dress in our EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE CLOTHES. I know why I like to dress in men's clothes -- they are about 100x more comfortable.

I don't mean to sound naive here ... but is part of the turn-on for men wearing girly clothes the standard old S&M urge? It's definately slightly punishing to wear thongs, high heels, push-up bras and all my usual equipment. I gotta wonder if men design these things to make women's urge to rip off all their clothes that much more urgent.
