If I let this cat out of the bag, what would women think of me? Would I ever be able to get a date, let alone have a relationship or get married? Much of my intellectual development is due to wrestling with this question.
The bottom line, is that everyone is wondering what women think of it. She gets to the heart of the matter in a rare way. Obviously, I do not speak for all women. However, pantyhose issue aside, I believe that what I have to say may give a very generalized understanding of what women see in a man—pantyhose or not.
Do I like men in pantyhose? Before I answer that, I want to make clear that for the few of us women that actually like pantyhose, our reasons are probably very different from the reasons men may like to wear them.
I consider myself to be very perceptive. From what I have gathered in the months that I have been here and elswhere , it appears that many pantyhose-wearing men wear pantyhose for one or more of the following reasons excluding any medical reasons: It is a fetish There is some sort of thrill to wearing them in public It is one element of a broader desire to crossdress Do any of those reasons sound familiar?
So, do I like men in pantyhose? I debated whether or not to touch this subject. It is not important to reveal what prompted this to become a blog topic. Suffice it to say, I have decided to air my thoughts on the matter because I think it may help some men understand, in some small way, what makes me tick.
I think this would also be a good opportunity for me to give some gentle fashion advice to men who may be considering wearing pantyhose publicly. Those who have read my humble words here on EP already know that I like to wear pantyhose.
With that in mind, what I have to say regarding men in pantyhose may surprise you. While there may be women like that out there, in my humble opinion, such women are exceedingly rare. It is true that I love pantyhose. However, if I were to come across a man openly wearing pantyhose, how would I react?
I have no problem with the fact that some men like to wear pantyhose. The real issue for me would probably be that in most cases, it would probably look very odd. From what I gather, it seems to me that many pantyhose-wearing men would like to just throw on a pair of pantyhose, throw on a skirt or some shorts, go walking down the street, and be accepted by everybody. My hope for men who would openly wear pantyhose is that they not get so caught up in the thrill that they lose sight of their overall look.
Done smartly, properly shaved, and with great care and coordination, I do believe it is possible for a man to achieve a stylish look with fashionable hosiery. If a man wishes to openly wear pantyhose in public, I feel that he is obliged to show some class and sensibility when assembling his outfit.
Why such a high standard for men? Because there is basically no paradigm for such accessorization for men. I instinctively know how to coordinate pantyhose with my own outfits. I do have a general idea of what might look good or bad.
Even so, it is hard to say without actually seeing it in practice. Thus, I feel the safest place to start in terms of attire would have to be the most conservative. But if he is going to wear them in an unfashionable manner while in public, I have no desire to see it. Mind you, the same goes for women, as they are sometimes just as guilty.
In fact, some women may be even worse—since they are women, they think they can get away with anything. Fashion considerations aside, I am sure that some men would have great legs in pantyhose. It is probably no surprise that, yes, my husband does wear pantyhose. I will only reveal that: I mentioned my husband because there is a certain duality with my attitude towards pantyhose-wearing men.
Do I find my husband appealing? Yes, but not because he is wearing pantyhose. True, I happen to think my husband looks really good in pantyhose. Thus, in the privacy of our own home, he looks good in virtually any kind of pantyhose. Admittedly, I am sure a lot of my biased perception stems from the immense love we have for each other.
So, is this a double standard? It is completely natural to be wholly enamored with the one you love. Traits that you look upon with ambivalence in other people are seen under a very different light with your loved one.
That is the nature of love; it cannot be rationalized. If you truly love your partner, you will know exactly what I am talking about. And, if you are completely committed to your spouse, nobody will light your fire in quite the same way that he or she does.
On a final note, I must point out to pantyhose-wearing men who have accepting wives that there is a difference between loving your wife, and loving your wife because she wears pantyhose or accepts your wearing of pantyhose. This is something I hope to address in a future post. Share this with your people:
