This allows the male to attain the transformation that they normally would like to achieve. Though society is yet to understand and accept this, feminization continues to be prevalent especially in the world of transsexuals.
Feminization has several types. It could be temporary or permanent. The temporary types include cross-dressing, changing names, forced and hypnotic feminization. Cross-dressing is where the male wears feminine clothing to appear feminine. This provides him satisfaction and considers the act gratifying for he gets to experience how it is to be feminine even for a short period of time.
Forced feminization, on the other hand, is forcing your subject to appear and behave more feminine. It highlights the appearance of the male – he is asked to portray typical female characters; usually the adapting the domestic looks of females such as that of a secretary, house help, or nurse. He is then asked to follow instructions, at times from a female. This is a role-playing act that satisfies their desire to achieve change in dominance. The shift in power from male to female provides them with the adventure and provides them the opportunity to fulfill their hidden fantasies and desires.
As some studies conclude, refusal from the one asked to follow is more or less superficial for both parties enjoy the act. But there are also cases where forced feminization is part of abuse and brutality as in the case of imprisoned males where they are forced to be feminine to provide satisfaction to their superiors.
Hypnotic feminization is using hypnosis to allow the subject to find himself in a superficial environment where he gets to appear, talk and behave like a female; helping him realize his desires of actually becoming a woman even for a short period of time.
