I Am a Straight Man That Likes Wearing Lingerie

To My Surprise, I Got Lucky

I obviously didn't know what I was getting into when I first slipped on those panties years back..and by that I mean, at that age, I couldn't fathom actually trying other kinds of lingerie on. But once I got to looking at those catalogues and saw the panties, bras, hosiery, etc, I got curious to see how those other kinds of lingerie felt.

Sometime while I was in high school, I finally got some panties after a long time of not having them, but I also got some bras. The panties ranged from cotton to nylon, from briefs to thongs. Then there were the bras. The first bra I ever tried on was a silky black Victoria's Secret demi bra. To my surprise, I got lucky and the band fit me perfectly. I got it in an A cup so even though I don't have anything there to support, the cups were at least small enough to form to my "chest". While wearing it, I felt just about the same as when I first slipped on panties. Speaking of panties, I had a pair on before I put on the bra, adding to the excitement and the experience. Some nights, I would sleep in just a bra and panties since they are very comfy and feel great. However, not long after this all started, I started having doubts as to if what I was doing was right.

I struggled with this issue as I'm sure a lot of guys that wear lingerie do. Being a teen and feeling like there was nobody I could go to for advice made things even worse. On one hand I thought, this isn't right. Lingerie is made for women. Guys don't wear feminine clothes. Guys that wear feminine clothes can't exactly be straight in any case. On the other hand, I thought, what's so wrong about wearing lingerie? Sure I'm a guy but it hasn't made me any less of the guy that I am (not saying or implying that gay or bi guys are lesser men that I am). I'm still interested in women. I just so happen to have a thing for women's lingerie. Each time I struggled with my conscience over this, I started to learn that I needed to make a choice on whether I'm going to stick with it or give it up.

There Are Much Worse Things I Could Be Doing

 Having these struggles, I have thrown out lingerie a few times and, ridiculously enough, considered the money spent on the lingerie a punishment as well as a loss. It sounds very stupid and each time I threw out lingerie, I felt stupid. Although when I was throwing lingerie out, I thought I felt stupid for even having bought it and having this fetish for it. I looked back on each time and realized that I really should have found a place to donate the lingerie if I was going to throw it out. It would have at least gone to somebody who needed it. But what's done is done.

After each time I threw out lingerie, I would be good for a while without having it. Then one day I would see a Victoria's Secret commercial and I would start wanting to wear lingerie again. I could have looked away or walked out of the room, but I wanted to watch the commercial. Same goes for any other commercial that had lingerie in it. I may have thrown out lingerie but that doesn't mean I don't have a thing for it. Not long ago, I decided that it was pointless to keep fighting it, since each time I went without it, I would find myself wanting to wear it again. The more I tried to suppress it, the more I wanted to wear it. In the end, I chose to stick with it and wear my lingerie. The way I see it, if wearing lingerie is wrong for a guy, there are much worse things I could be doing like drinking excessively and going absolutely nowhere with my life or getting myself into a mess I can't get get myself out of.

That's pretty much been my experience so far as being a man who wears lingerie. There are other things I could add but this hub is long enough as it is. Once again I would love to see comments and thanks for reading again.

      I too wear panties and bras I also like to wear dresses now. I remember as a child around 10 trying on my moms panties. I have been married 25 years and my wife knows about my fettish. The truth is I have always loved wearing women’s panties bras and slips. I find myself sitting up at night late just to play dress up. I really appreciate this site for all the help in coming out about this. I think men should wear what they want if it means ladies panties then do it. I prefer to wear my panties at night in the bedroom with my wife. I would love to go further with her on wearing dresses but don’t know what she would think I am scared to ask that she might push me away. I think it’s time to pursue it though? Any advise?

      My wife and I have a favorite wayside to try out the outfit we put together, she would dress me up then watch from a distance while I walked by the parked cars waiting for people to show up,one such outing Iwas followed down through a trail to the lake by the picnic tables, I placed my hand bag on the table and bent forward to adjust my heel strap and felt warm hands on my hips and a voice of man saying how sexy i looked walking down to the lake, at the time I was just getting used to heels, I was wearing a short black skirt matching top and red bra and panties

      I have been wearing women's underwear for only a few years now but before that I would rip up and abuse men's underwear but now that its much easier to buy women's panties I can't help myself. It makes me very happy to see other straight guys posting about this topic ans knowing its not only me who does this.

      All material is gender free, until it is shaped into something else. Then, alas, most peoples brains are shaped along with it. Let everyone wear whatever they like, who cares? Men used to wear silks & heels, even make-up, women now wear trousers & suits. If people are uncomfortable with someone else's life choices, which obviously don't involve any harm to another person, then there's something wrong with them, not the person who chooses to be free. I really don't see the big deal allowing someone to wear whatever they like, and not doing so is just discrimination. Black, white, yellow, red, brown, straight, gay, bisexual, transgender, all accepted for who they are, as it should be, except for transvestite, so it seems, if that's really what they are. Material is gender free, remember? Your brains have been moulded, just like the materials that created the clothing. There's no male or female, it's just fabric.

      So what is normal and who cares? I have known my wife for 23 years and not disclosed my love of female attire. I feel like a caged animal so tightly bound to keep it under wraps. Lately I just want to tell her what I have desired since I was a young boy. I have always been fascinated by female fashion. They are so lucky that society accepts them wearing anything they want.

      I just want to wear ladies lingerie and high heels all the time. Recently have been experimenting with makeup and find that liberating to. Started wearing foundation and penciling my eyebrows and eyes at work and that makes me feel great too.

      I have been wearing women's lingerie secretly for years. I love how it feels and how sensuous it makes me feel. I am completely straight, but my wife caught me once with a nightgown on and got mad and called me gay. I long for an opportunity to make love to a women with both of us wearing sexy lingerie, but don't think my wife will ever change her attitude about it. I do struggle sometimes with thinking there is something wrong with me for wanting to wear lingerie and throw everything I have away, but then the desire comes over me again and I go shopping or get into the wife's clothes. It is good to know there are other straight guys out there that feel the same as me.

My wife has often caught me putting on pantyhose and thinks it’s a crazy idea. I know she just can’t understand why. I often dress fully in silk skirts, slips, panty and pantyhose and high heels when she is away. It’s a great feeling. Will not stop. I have recently purchased four pairs of stay-ups wow

My wife is ok with that part but when it comes to wearing full on lingerie she doesn't want to see me in it though she enjoys how turned on I get while wearing nighties or teddies as I am attacking her from behind... :D. I thoroughly enjoy buying and wearing all sorts of lingerie under my uniform.

      I don't have much of a story. I'm in a committed lifelong partnership with a wonderful woman. My adventure began what's a pair of Iron Maiden cotton briefs for women. She bought them for her and they didn't fit. At that point they were put aside for several months and one day she pulled them out and asked me to try them on. And they fit like a glove. as a gesture that we have between each other she " squeaked ". I told her how great they felt and I really like them period after that it was a Snowball Effect she was picking out lingerie for me I was picking out lingerie for her to the point we're picking out matching lingerie. It is probably the most inspiring intriguing loving part of our lives that has grown us stronger as a couple. I don't wear bras she finally talked me into a pair of shoes heels. I wear camisole's silky robes, garters, stockings, fishnet we even have gotten into cosplay where I am the schoolgirl and she is the French maid. Mind you she is bisexual but we have never had a female in her life together. And that's not important what's important is what we are doing now constantly shopping for each other to where sexy beautiful amazing feeling undergarments. So for those men that want this in their life who have women and their lives that can't quite grasp it. Maybe she will be into it maybe she will not. Maybe I'm a select few then I'm lucky to have a woman in my life that enjoys me being happy wearing women's lingerie and again it was only because she wanted me to try on a pair of her underwear that didn't fit.

      I’ve been wearing bra/panty/slip/d cup breast forms for over 2 years to ged/around house alone when I’m off. Love love love it!!! Also started wearing dresses/women’s clothes/slacks/ankle/knee high boots with leggings/women’s turtleneck sweaters/blouses. At this point I don’t care as it’s who I am and become. My masseuse told me I have perfect bike and has taken pictures of me with her phone. She even bought me perfume and dress for my birthday. She said to accept who I am and become and not worry about her husband or care what anyone thinks.

      I have souly worn panties for close to 40 Years . I am a panty-a-holic and without any question I have well and I do mean well! Over 400 pairs of panties.

      Being from the bikini generation they are my daily wearers . I also like thongs and hiphuggers and cheekinis only nylon and satin no cotton. I do occasionally crossdress all the way.

      I love my demi bras and either crotchless pantyhose or garterhose .

      And I love sexy strappy open toe

      Stilettoes which I have many pairs. I am as straight as straight can be. It has never crossed my mind to want to be with someone of my same sex. So all you narrow minded people and so called macho men out there who are clueless and like to point fingers. Get real you are the one who have the problems and insecurities .

      Don't judge yourself too harshly. I, for one, enjoy the selection and various cuts that accompany women's underwear. Women's underwear are simply more comfortable and support me better than men's underwear. I wear panties everyday and have actually stopped wearing men's underwear all together. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be more comfortable. It doesn't mean you're less of a man...if anything, you're more comfortable and secure with your own sexuality and masculinity. After all, only a MAN is man enough to wear panties. :)

I feel comfortable going out to purchase ladies panties and the ladies who work in lingerie shops are very helpful. My lady friends who I have told when asked about my panty wearing are ok with it and it has made my life with ladies knowing that I wear ladies panties instead of men's so uncomfortable undies a no big deal thing. They actually find I look sexy in ladies panties. Definitely not gay and it doesn't mean a guy is gay just because he likes to wear ladies panties

She asked if I'd try a pair of sexy ladies panties on and wear them for a day and took her dare and slid on a pair of ladies panties sje bought for me to try on and wear. I admit they felt sexy amd comfy and a totally different feeling as the ladies panties felt so wonderful and great wearing them. Now I do wear sexy ladies panties on occasion most of the time and feel great about it

      I'm straight and my wife is a tomboy. When I started putting on weight due to a back injury, I started developing breasts, sizeable ones too. It was becoming very obvious when wearing tee shirts in public. My wife bought me some sports bras to wear and I've been wearing them for the past few years. I'm not interested in other women's clothes, but I do have an interest in getting earrings. Am I traveling down a wrong path here. My wife is bald by choice and we love each other dearly.

      glad to hear things are ok with your lingerie wearing.

      I am 80 yo and have been wearing lingerie for over 70 years

      I got started wear my mothers pink lace JCP panties. A friend and I were dressed in panties and nasturbating and were caught by my mother. I was wearing her pink JCP nylon panties, he was in his older sisters panties. My mother did not get upset that I was wearing panties and never said a word. But later 2-3 weeks JCP pink nylon panties showed up in my under ware drawer. And about every 2-3 months ,afterward 2 or 3 new one's showed up in my under ware , this continues until I went in the Military.

      I have worn panties 24/7. I even wear then to the doctors.

      Yes, I've done the same. But I kept buying lingerie. I love it too much to stop wearing it. It makes me feel sort of naughty knowing that no one can see it while I'm out in public! Seems to keep me very horny too. Not unusual for me to go to a clothing store, go into a fitting room, strip down to my lingerie and jerk off! Just one of my many quirky fetishes!

      I've done exactly the same, throwing away my gorgeous suspender belts, stockings and panties. The belts cost a fortune, proper posh stuff. My wife hated this side of me so it was a very private thing. She wants a man and a man who wears lingerie is gay in her eyes but I'm a sensual man and I know it. I also know I look ridiculous in it but the feel of real high class stockings on my (hairy) thighs is wonderful.

      My wife held a pair of her brand new panties open for me to step into last week so I could feel how good they felt so there's hope yet. Its only taken thirty years.

      My husband and I got married when I was 24 and he was 22.

      He had a terrible back injury at work at age 26 and had to wear the most horible back brace devices and garments I have ever seen. When the injury settled down and he had to wear a back support all the available garments were bulky velcro wrap around things that cost a fortune, made of uncomfortable fabrics with lots of overlapping velcro and were just hot and uncomfortable for him.

      It was my idea to buy him a well made corset that was light weight, breathed and had possibly more support than the back support garments from the physio and chemists.

      He balked at the idea at first of wearing "Womens Lingerie" but he trusted me and tried it for a day, then a week, then a month. After the month he tried one of his original back support belt garments as we were heading out for the night with friends. 10 minutes into the car ride out he asked me to go home so he could slip in to something more comfortable and less scratchy and irritating. Simce then he has a fine collection of corsets.

      Unfortunately he also developed some kidney and prostate issues 2 years after the back injury and had to go on so really strong meds to shrink his prostate and prevent cancer. We were lucky we caught it early but the meds had an unforseen effect and he started to grow breasts.

      Because he wore a female corset we didnt really notice it at first. It was one day when he asked me to tighten his corset because he thought it had become looser that I noticed his silhouette looked distinctively female in figure. He had a thinner waist, bigger hips and bum and he looked like he was filling the B cup on the corset. Sure enough within 3 more months he was spilling over the B cup and we knew something was wrong.

      His Dr confirmed it was the meddication having a feminising efect and that the changes in body matched with the lacing of the corset had given him a sexy hourglass figure that a lot of women would kill for.

      He had a bit of a meltdown and refused to wear the corset or take his meds for a few months. After landing in hospital with complications from an enlarged prostate and a really irritated lower back.He was put on an even larger dose of the meds via a drip in hospital and was wearing their uncomfortable back supports. He asked me to bring him one of his plain corsets in hospital as he was so uncomfortable which I did. A few days later on my daily visit to my husband I found him smiling and sitting up in bed being chatted up by 2 beautiful nurses on his ward. They were complimenting him on his figure and I heard one of them tell him she thought it was sexy as hell. Luckily a few days later he was released from hospital and all the nurses said goodbye with a huge smile as he walked down the hall and one of them even gave us both a slap on the behind and said "See you 2 gorgeous girls later" at which my husband laughed.

      All that was 6 years ago and my husband looks more like my girlfriend than a husband but their flirting gave him the confidence to be who he is and who he was becoming. He is still the same man I married and whom I love and adore. He is still just as thoughtful and reliable as he always was. Only difference now is that he can wear anything he likes and can and does on occasion go out on the town with me and the girls dressed in heels and a mini skirt and he fets hit on just as much as the rest of us.

      There is no shame in a man wearing lingerie because clothing is optional and removable. Its the person wearing the skirt or pants that counts and who they are in their heart.

      I'm a straight man in my 40's. I'm single and I live alone. I prefer to remain single because I've spent FAR too much of my life in relationships being a "counselor" to troubled women. But I still miss having a lady in my life, and a part of me would love to spend time with a pretty, fit, less-troubled lady half my age. I don't see that happening in reality, so I can at least buy and wear 20-something-year-old women's clothes. So, I currently spend my free time around the house wearing Jockey French-cut cotton panties and a "Soft and Sexy" scoop-neck crop top from American Eagle Outfitters. This stuff just feels SO nice and soft! I'm starting to shop around online for sundress-type things...maybe some skinny jeans...sneakers with some pink design on them...an A-cup bra or sports bra, yoga pants, and athletic wear.

      I'm a straight guy. I tried on a pair of panties at my friends house when I was about 6. Many years later I went to Gadzooks and would get a hard-on just from looking at the thongs hanging on the racks. Eventually I started to steal them (because I was way too embarrassed to buy them) . I would see different girls at school with their thongs hanging out and get home and find one that looked the most like the one she was wearing and do what 13 yr olds do best. Well one day, I went to sell something ( that comes from South America) to this old guy. He answered the door in full drag. It freaked me out but, every since then I feel this urge to wear panties especially thongs, when I do blow. Lately I've even taken it further with bras, heels and wigs. I'm pretty sure I'm not gay, because I love vagina and I'm not attracted to men at all (except myself) What's wrong with me? Can anyone else relate to this?

      I have been wearing womens lingerie for a coupla years now(4 to b exact) and it was my wife who actually nagged at me to do it as she read stories etc online of couples who did it and had excellent sex lives. she bought me matching lace lingerie with her own and then diabetes hit her and eventually it got so bad that it took her ability to walk and her eyesight from her.we had to sleep sepatrately. ymy wife took really ill and went onto dialysis .one day out of the blue she was sitting on her hospital bed waiting to ggo for dialysis and she all of a sudden blurted out at the top of her voice shouting at me asking " WHAT THE HELL DO U WEAR WOMENS UNDERWEAR FOR" . neighbours heard this and evr since ive been getting a lot of verbal abuse and been made an outcast in my own (so called) community. my wife died 2 days later of a massive brain haemmorrage. now I'm scared to go out in public in case the verbal abuse turns to physical abuse. I still wear my lingerie though and like most men love the feel of it next to my skin.

Wear a thong every day in secrete, I think feeling sexy is good, we ain't doing anything wrong, but if you leave dressing up, all you do is think about is dressing up again, I no that's what I think about.

I am married and my wife discovered my fetish when she saw my collection inside my car..at first she was in disbelief and mad at me..but now I'm comfortable wearing lingerie and even pantyhose in front of her, whether it's for work, at home, or our sexy time together. I really don't know why but I do seem to find it extremely sexy and comfortable wearing lingerie, especially thongs! It's like you're wearing nothing! Cheers to us who finds nothing wrong in wearing sexy lingerie!

      I don't want to be caught out but it bothers me that I can't express myself as who I am. We grow up in cages, denied our real selves, constrained by society into roles. Who's hurt if I wear a bra? Panties?

      If it helps me access a side of myself which has been denied me, who is to say that's a bad thing?

      My wife supports me and wearing lingerie has made our relationship closer and more relaxed.

      Have courage! Be who you REALLY are! Anyone who can't accept that [you] doesn't belong in your life! Give them time but be YOU!

      A well written article. Most of us who love to wear women´s lingerie made similiar experiences. I started young with my mother´s girdle and stockings as a teen. And although I tried to give up the urge to wear lingerie came back and became stronger. In my midthirthies I decided to fight no longer. Since then I have been wearing lingerie, stockings and foundation garments. For the last 25 years there was hardly a day that I did not wear a girdle and nylon. My favourite is still obg with stockings. Easy to wear under my suit and a great feeling. A few years ago I started to wear a bra regularly. For me the most feminine piece of clothing. Wearing bra and girdle became a lifelong habit. It may be unusual but I think it´s nothing wrong if a guy wears feminine lingerie.

      Nothing wrong if a man likes to wear lingerie and nylon. I mean it´s only clothes and everybody should wear what he likes. I started early and till today over the years women´s lingerie, shapewear and nylons have never lost their magic for me. It is such a great feeling to wear a good fitting bra the cups nicely filled with forms. And with it a girdle with stockings. Wearing a skirt and pumps is so relaxing and comfortable. Especially during summer I would love to wear skirt and stockings instead of my suit at the office.

      IMHO there is nothing wrong if a guy likes to wear women´s lingerie. During puberty I started with my mom´s girdle and stockings. I was hooked at once. Wearing lingerie became a lifelong habit for me.

      Now almost 4 decades later I still enjoy girdles, bras and stockings. I feel so well wearing bra and girdle. And I love the ritual to don my girdle and stockings every morning after showers. And then my bra. At the beginning I was afraid that I would be noticed wearing my bra in public. But now I no longer care. I wear my cups filled with forms and enjoy the weight and bounce with every step.

      Have you considered that the wearing of the bras means you may be a woman that society calls a man? (You may not have come out to yourself yet on this issue). Try on woman's jeans, underpants and shirt and paint your nails . Then lay in bed in your new outfit for at least 30 minutes. If your body, mind and soul is screaming "CURE CURE" consider buying more clothes to feed your feminine side and become a transwoman with help from a therapist. (Or not) People do it all the time to build a better life for themselves. Go google the term "Transwoman"

At first i was shy or embarresed to wear them in public but now i have no choice cause i don't go a day without wearing one. I have moved on to wearing a one piece body suit with extreme push ups. I now go out in public every day with it on and don't care what people think. I keep it from my friends my wife don't like it but accepts it she even does them up for me at times.

      I'm a guy, 34, and can Completely relate. Years ago, I threw out my small collection also, only to buy more clothing. I have much more now, including shoes, 2 custom made, lockable french maid dresses, etc... I'm not passable, nor do I try to be. The obsession/fetish comes and goes with me. I don't know when or why it happens, but it does.

      I'm a single guy, and not the most outgoing. I did admit my "problem" to girlfriends in the past, and although a couple of them did play with it a little, I have never been able to find a woman completely accepting of my wanting to wear nice things occasionally. I don't know if talking to someone about this would help, as I don't think it will ever go away. I enjoy wearing a bra the most, and have worn one plenty of times in public, with it not really visible. Although, if I know I am going to see friends, I take it off because I'm not brave enough, or accepting enough of it to let other people find out.

      I wish I could find a girl like "Kathleen D." myself! I envy her boyfriend, and hope that maybe somehow, someday, I can find a woman that would be ok with this side of me.

      I started dressing up @ 10 years old and have been doin it ever since. I used to feel the same way about "if it was wrong " or "am I gay" but after discovering the internet I didn't feel alone. I've had a few girlfriends who knew about it and didn't care and that takes a lot of tension off. But now my most recent girlfriend loves it. We go on shopping trips buying me lingerie and leggings and whatever I feel is going to be comfortable. The only thing is we keep it under the roof. There's times when I wish I had breasts but I don't think she would take that well and on top of all that I don't think anyone in my family would except it but as long as the one I love is OK with it its fine with me. I remember the first time I tried on panties, they were my sisters and fortunately for me she always had satin panties and I've been attracted to satin as long as I can remember. It was so exciting that first time, slipping on a pair of satin panties, then came the bras after a few weeks of wearing panties and they felt so comfortable and right

      I would wear them whenever I got the chance. I've almost been caught a few times but that didn't stop me and now me and girlfriend share the underwear drawer 2gether and its great we share underwear all the time. Its like a dream come true. So 4 all u panty guys don't give up on your feelings and there's a lot of help out there. I hope this post helps anyone out there who feels alone cause your not!

      I have had several past boyfriends that would wear panties and sometimes a bra. My current boyfriend and I went to the Dominican Republic on vacation and he wore panties the entire trip. Sometimes he would wear a bra too, but only if it could be hidden by a jacket, etc. I encourage him and buy him things sometimes too. It's our little secret and it helps our relationship. Guys should be more open about this with their girlfriends so it can be a fun bonding part of the relationship.

      Over the years I've had several boyfriends that I've discussed crossdressing with. While most of them wouldn't let me put a bra on them, they usually accepted wearing panties if I asked. It's something romantic and special that a guy can do for me that I find sexy. It something romantic because they are doing it to please me. My current boyfriend thinks it's kinky, but he wears panties under his guy clothes whenever we are on a date. I bought him a bra and panty set as a present and he wore it when we went out to dinner under his male clothes. Now he wears lingerie whenever I ask-I think he's a keeper! He said he was surprised at how much he liked wearing pantyhose and the feeling under his pants.I have a teenage daughter from a prior relationship, and I don't tell her about it though. I probably will when she is a little older.

      At a very young (elementary school) age I discovered the appeal of underwear intended for women and asked myself why males had to wear cotton briefs with thick piping edges and thick wide elastic waistbands.

      I suppressed this while occasionally and secretly trying panties, slips and bras. The older I got the more I wanted to wear them regularly until about twenty years ago began acquiring my own. It has been very satisfying. Now I have oodles of panties (thongs, bikinis, briefs and pettipants) as well as bras and slips (half and full). I wear panties all the time and select other lingeries according to my mood.

      Just yesterday I got a bargain on a beautiful Wacoal bra with matching panties at The Rack. They really look good.

      I firmly believe this topic needs to be more openly discussed. This week (Jan. 3, 2011) I watched a mother sit on a morning network news show and discuss how her 4-5 yr old son likes to wear colorful clothes regarded as 'feminine.' He says he feels better wearing them. He is affectionately called Princess Boy and she has written an excellent book titled Princess Boy. Her support and nurture is admirable. I hope this helps the multitude who are similar. We should all feel better because of what we prefer to wear.

      I have "purged" and thrown out many items of lingerie, clothing, shoes, and wigs over the years, only to turn around and purchase it all again. You just have to come to a level of self acceptance with your crossdressing desires, even if you still keep it a secret. Once you find that level of self acceptance, you will realize that as long as you aren't harming anyone else or breaking the law, dressing in feminine attire is truly a relaxing, rewarding, and erotic experience, for men and women alike.

Why is it girl's have been able to slip into guys attire & no one even cares. Non of us are born with cloths on so who is to say who should wear what. anyway dresses high heels dresses lets put them on love A

      Anyway What can compare with slipping into a nice pair of lacey panties lace top stocking & a really pretty dress ( why woould any girl want to turn her back on that)Thev only person who knows is my girl friend & she will buy underware with me but she doe's not approve of my interest in dressing up

      I'm 37 and yes, I to have struggled with subject for many years. I never went as far as to toss out my collection. But do find myself wondering just about everyday if this is right. I do have a couple plus's about this issue. 1. My wife is totally into me wearing bras, panties and yes I even wear the lowrise jeans(they fit so much better than mens) And 2. I work from home. This gives me more ops to wear what feels best to me.

      Still, everyday I find myself asking if it's right. Until recently, I didn't talk about the fact that I enjoy feeling "Sexy" and achieving this by following, what some would call, a fetish. For me it's not that way. It's the way I've been for 20+ years. My wife tells me every time I ask her if she really thinks this is right or if I look gay for doing, " No dear! You look good in womens garb, it's hot and shows that your secure enough to wear the items you wear."

      I think maybe all of us (straight, gay or bi)should just relax about this subject in general. The times have changed over the years. What we do is something that a great many men do. Only, we are among few that have come forward with the info.
