International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XLVI, 1965: Transvestitism as an Impulse and as a Defense. Morey M. Segal. Pp. 209-217.

Transvestitism is an ultimate condensation of the self and object, sucking infant and actively feeding mother, foetus and pregnant mother, a blending of homosexual and heterosexual tendencies (both active and passive), of sadism and masochism, of the little girl, father, and mother. Donning female clothes permits the subject to re-create a symbiotic mother-infant state that prevents inundation of the ego by intense pregenital drives. At the same time the act is an autonomous re-creation of a primary active-passive relationship that nullifies loneliness, emptiness, and agitated tension, and promotes elation and confidence.
