dc.description.abstract Some men experience sexual interest in MtF (male-to-feminine) transgender individuals, known as gynandromorphophilia. This sexual interest has received little academic attention. My thesis includes (a) a review of the literature pertaining to gynandromorphophilia; (b) studies characterizing Samoan gynandromorphophilic men; (c) a study assessing whether Canadian heterosexual men experience some degree of gynandromorphophilia; (d) studies examining the relevance of culture to men’s perception of, and sexual interest in, MtF transgender individuals; (e) a study exploring the relationship between individual factors and gynandromorphophilia; and (f) a discussion of whether gynandromorphophilia is a paraphilia. Broadly, this research suggests that gynandromorphophilic men are predominantly attracted to women, but they differ from exclusively heterosexual men in their elevated response to MtF transgender individuals. Heterosexual men may, however, have a general capacity to experience sexual interest in MtF transgender individuals. This interest may be expressed or inhibited by individual and cultural factors. en_US
