00:00 Introduction
16:58 Question of the Week:
I am a 49 y.o. CD/TV. I am married with two kids at home ages 16, a son and 12, a daughter. I have told my wife of 28 years that I enjoy dressing in women's clothes and belong to a transgender support group. She wasn't thrilled with all of this because now she's afraid that I am having sex with men now and I might come home with something like HIV. How can I ease her mind that I am doing this a recreational and not to hurt anyone.
(From Jenny in Calimesa, Ca.)
