Three Reasons Why Men Wear Bras

As a woman, I write a great deal about men who wear lingerie. To be honest, it has become rather a passion of mine over the past few years.

Sexy fun!

Sexy fun!

Sometimes, a man feels the desire to wear a bra. This can be for a variety of reasons, including fetishism, medical reasons, bedroom games, and simply because he likes it. Bras can be objects of comfort, desire, humiliation and punishment depending on the context in which they are used.

This article looks at a few of the fun reasons that a man might don a bra. In the spirit of equality, if women can wear pants, why shouldn't men be able to wear bras?

1. Crossdresser/Sweet Transvestite

Crossdressers often don a bra to enhance their female image. Indeed, crossdressers wearing bras is so common that it's hard to imagine that the outfit could be complete without this garment. After all, what good would a drag queen be without a silicone stuffed brassiere?

2. Feminization/Forced Feminization

Men who enjoy feminization, or forced feminization, find that wearing a bra makes them feel much more feminine than simply wearing panties alone. Oftentimes the brassiere is just part of a complete outfit which may include stockings, suspenders, a garter, teddies or camisoles, high heels—the list goes on. A man who enjoys forced feminization may enjoy being compelled to don these feminine accessories, and to wear lipstick and other makeup. These acts are often carried out in the context of punishment, and the resulting humiliation both cows and arouses the subject.

3. Because It Just Feels Good

Other men simply enjoy the feeling of wearing a brassiere. It may remind them of a partner or lover, or perhaps simply provide a feminine touch to their day. The old joke about finding a husband dressing in his wife's underwear applies equally to brassieres as it does panties, though many find the donning of a bra to be a step further than panties alone. It is unfortunate that many men feel compelled to hide this side of their sexuality from their partners for fear of being thought of as gay.

Does Wearing a Bra Make Him Gay?

Wearing a bra is not necessarily linked with being gay. For some men perhaps it is, but for many others it is not. What is true, however, is that wearing a bra is much more taboo for straight men—whereas their gay counterparts can revel in their lingerie as much as they desire. Straight men, on the other hand, are forced to hide in dark corners, flirting with their desire.

It is certainly true that life is not fair, and that sexuality is still an arena fraught with prejudice, but the more men free themselves to explore their desires, the more fun there is to be had for all!
