Episode 53: Autogynephilia with J Michael Bailey

J Michael Bailey authored the seminal The Man Who Would Be Queen, which attempted to bring to a mainstream audience Blachard’s “Two Types” of male transsexuality: effeminate homosexuals, and autogynephiles, men sexually aroused at the idea of themselves as women. Is autogynephilia (AGP) a sexuality, a paraphilia, or both? Is male bisexuality linked to AGP? How common is AGP? (Bailey: “We don’t know.” Corinna: “Very, at tech conferences.”) What are the similarities between autogynephiles, furries, wannabe amputees, and “adult babies”? Can women be GAMPs? Are traps gay? What is up with adult AGP men favoring castrating AGP boys? Questions abound, but one thing is for certain: it’s one hell of a paraphilia.
