Why I Like My Men To Wear Lingerie

Updated on November 15, 2010

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, but it wasn't always that way. This is the story of how I came upon this phenomenon of men who like to wear lingerie, and how I came to love a man who wore panties. In the beginning, I was introduced to men wearing lingerie by a wonderful man who hesitantly revealed his proclivity towards wearing lingerie after several dates.

I don't know if I would have responded so well on the first date, but by the time he told me I liked the guy, and I wanted to get to know him better. It didn't really seem like it would be that big of a deal if he wanted to wear lingerie, after all, we all have our little likes and dislikes, don't we? My biggest fear came about from hoping that I wouldn't laugh if he looked silly in it. After all, a big hairy man wearing a camisole, bra, and stretching out a pair of ladies panties in all the wrong places isn't exactly the image most women have of their boyfriend.

I'm not going to lie and say I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I didn't. It looked odd, and yeah it was a tad strange. But then I got up the courage to touch him whilst he was wearing his lingerie, and oh dear lord. There is something about the feel of satin sliding over a hard muscled body that is just amazingly sensual. I won't be crude, but I will say that there was an added dimension to our love making that came both from the feel of the lingerie, and no doubt, also from the freedom he was allowed just to be himself. It might not be your ideal of a perfect mate to have a man who wears lingerie, but trying to shove men into boxes and make them live some role like walking Ken dolls isn't a healthy way to be, and believe me when I say he was all man between the sheets.

There is a common misconception that men who wear lingerie are somehow effeminate, or even gay. However, as the poll on the men in panties blog demonstrates, most men wear lingerie for the the feeling. They like the way that the satin and lace feel against their skin. Why shouldn't they? Lingerie does feel good. It feels sexy, and having two bodies clad in silky smooth material only adds to the fun.

It may not be your thing to have a man who wears lingerie, and that is fine. Just be aware that there are quite literally thousands of men who hide this side of themselves from their female partners because they fear losing them if it were revealed. You may already have a man who wears lingerie and not even know it.

I don't often get biblical, but I am reminded of a story in the bible where a man goes to a dinner party and omits to change his work clothes before going. He is turned away at the door because he is not dressed properly, so goes home, changes into his finest garments, and returns to the party. This time he is allowed in, and he sits down and promptly begins "feeding" his clothes, putting food in the pockets and talking to his clothes at the same time. His host and the other guests look at him as if he is mad of course, and eventually his host asks him what on earth he is doing. The man then replies "When I came in my old clothes, you wouldn't let me in, so I assume it is my clothes you have invited to your home, and not me."

It's the man under the panties that counts.

      Slips and dresses are so comfortable. I wish I could wear them in public. Yet, being a man doesn't really make this appropriate. I have Crohn's Disease and sometimes during a flare, pants does not really seem to be my best friend. I live with my father, and I do own one dress and slip that I bought for a Halloween costume and I could wear it around the house when he's not around or sleeping and I do, but he shames me when he sees his son in a dress. I don't know what the big deal really is. It's only clothing and as long as you're comfortable, who cares.

      Why is it wrong for men to wear lingerie,if it makes them feel good wear what you want. I have been wearing girdles since I have been 17 years old. My current girl friend accepts this and even suggests I do more which I will do. I am girdle and stocking dependent.

      As a hetero man I wear female silk nylon panties all the time underneath my nightgowns or sleepshirts. I work from home so I'm not required to go outside everyday for work or whatever so this is pretty much what I wear like 80% of the time if not 100% of the time during the week. The only time I don't wear this stuff is when I have company over at the house. I live by myself so I have the freedom and right to wear this every single day if I wanted to. I have respect for people so I choose not to wear this stuff in front of them making them feel awkward or uncomfortable so I usually wear more appropriate attire. I know it looks strange and awkward so I don't try to push it as being something that people should have to see. The only types of people I would wear this in front of is somebody who would be comfortable with it and understand it.

      This is pretty much my home at work attire everyday as a matter of fact I'm wearing silk nylon panties right now underneath my new tank knee-length sleepshirt that I just brought last week and it all feels so comfortable. Everything on me feels so light right now that it feels like I have nothing else on. I get aroused in it all the time so I love the feminine feel to this.

      My best experience with wearing this kind of feminine attire is around a lady friend I had a while ago who accepted me for wearing this. She knew I wasn't gay and thought that was the best part of me getting in touch of my feminine side because everything else I did in my life was on the manly side. She would visit me all the time while I wore my nightgowns and sleepshirts with the panties on underneath. It was even better when she wore certain outfits that turned me on when she came over like sexy dresses and stuff and even better since I had a fetish for overalls she would wear those sometimes and get me turned on as she could be dominant in that kind of attire. We would have sleepovers and stuff like that where she wore her nightgowns and stuff around me and lounge all day in our attire. Boy I miss her a lot but she had to move to a different country because of her job. That time with her was awesome and it makes me think that I won't find quite another woman like her anytime soon so if you're a male that's lucky enough to share this with another woman or even man definitely take advantage of it and count your blessings.

      At the end of the day I'm living out a fantasy everyday of having the freedom to experience my fetish on a regular basis I know most men aren't as lucky as I am with this role of attire. I'm going to live my life the way I want to since it's my life but I'm also going to have respect for people and not sharing this aspect of my life with them unless they're open to it.

      My lovely wife has known about my crossdressing since before we married. She does not encourage me or participate in any way. I keep my body and legs smooth shaven, and would love for my wife to encourage; even better; order me to wear sheer nylons on a regular basis for her inspection, seeing as I keep my legs so feminine. Thus; I would enjoy a dominant side to her nature. She could even tease me about my crossdressing; calling me her feminine "bitch husband". Also; I've always had fantasies and thoughts of my wife having an intimate relationship with another man. I've had these feelings since before we were married; but could never tell her, as I never thought she could be open-minded or accepting enough to include them in our marriage. Maybe too little; too late!

      My spouse and myself have enjoyed our love of stylish, feminine, beautiful, sensuously arousing attire. We especially adore our collection of high heels.(At least 4 to 6 inch stilettos) They make our legs look longer and with the enhancement of our tights and pantyhose, the look is more complete. We usually just dress in our pretty attire at home. We have a motor home and we have gone out in our attire and traveled full on in sexy, exotic attire. It is so expressive of our indulging in our years of this now more acceptable lifestyle. It may be a bit over the top but we none the less find this extremely fun and it spices up our sex lives.

      Dear Hope,

      I came across your Hub about a year ago and have been hooked ever since. I slowly introduced the practice of draping my man in Lingerie and it became a semi regular event in the bedroom and when I just wanted to be close and sit on the couch wrapped in the arms of the man I had just spent 2 hours making into my best girlfriend ha ha.

      My partner recently had a very stressful time at work and some health problems and we had not dressed for a long time.

      I begun to share the stress and started to really miss my best girlfriend as he was somehow a different person when dressed, just more relaxed and easy going and open. I love both of him so I didn't push for my female companion. Then he lost his job and I had the idea of the century.

      I suggested we go on holidays to our time share place on the beach but he detach himself from his illness and his job loss stress and allow me to dress him as my best girlfriend the entire two weeks of the vacation.

      He thought about it and decided to try it but take enough male clothes as well if we wanted to go out for dinner or he wanted to be himself. I also did some extra shopping for him in the female clothing department cause I wanted to spoil him with new stuff. I feel good in new stuff so he should too.

      After the first 2 days of being dressed from head to toe as a girl 24hrs a day, he slipped rite into the role and started to really relax, forget about the world and just be together with me and be open and loving and happy. For the rest of the vacation he didn't open his male suitcase even until we pulled into the garage at home & then he went to bed in a red silky nightie and dressed as a man again the next day. A few weeks later and he is still calling it the best holiday he has ever had away from himself. His health is better and he is happy & looking for a new job.

      There are lots of good reasons for a man to dress in lingerie or as someone else and escapism, even if temporary is the best one I have found so far.

      Thanks for all your well thought out & well written articles.

      I have worn women's clothes for 30 years now and can't imagine life any other way. What started with pantyhose in my hormone raged teens, has grown into full transitions that include dresses, high heels, bra with forms, wig, make up, etc when I met my wife. Little did I know that she too has a huge passion for pantyhose and likes to see her man turn into her woman. I am very passable so maybe that's why. Either way, my dressing provides me a balance and calm that I just can't explain. And most of all, having my wife love, accept, and desire my fem side is the foundation that it's all built upon. My first wife was not accepting, so I told myself that whoever I meet and am attracted to, I'm going to throw caution to the wind and show all of my cards. I did on our 2nd date. I told her I didn't really know why I liked these things, but I do and that they are a part of me. I also assured her that I had no hidden motives to sneak out or do anything stupid like that. Honesty up front made all this work. She taught me how to apply make up, dress, and polish up my fem side to the point that we can go out and hardly anyone notices that I'm actually male. So much fun! Thank you Lord for sending her to me!

      Delighted with this site must say that i do also enjoy wearing lingerie and have done so for over 40 years but am still terified of been caught out.I wear girdles bras tights knicers slips camisoles chemise's on a daily basis. And would wear skirts as well but am afreid ao getting caught out as i live in a small town and am known by everyone and could not live it down. The sooner that people both women and men allow us to dress as we like without ridducule the better. Sad to say that there are still some self propclamed people who think that they have thr right to assault us for wearing lingerie what right do they have we do not tell them what they can wear so just lweave us alone.

      I to wear panties 24/7. They are so much more comforting then mens boxers or tighty-whiteys. The ones I wear are nylon size 7 briefs or bikini cut briefs. I enjoy them tremendously. Recently however my girlfriend has been wanting me to extend my wardrobe to include skirts and dresses. She bought me 2 skorts (1 navy blue, 1 khaki)and 3 plaid skirts. I tried them on for her and they did fit. How she knew what sizes to get I'll never know. She stated to me that men can now wear skirts and wanted to go out for the evening. After she showed me several articles of guys out and about in cities, I agreed to try it. WE went to a restaurant. I wore the navy blue skort, a light blue mens shirt and a navy sports coat. Believe it or not I was botherted by anyone while at the restaurant, later we went to a movie with the same reactions. I was amazed. Now she wants to try a dark blue dress she purchased, What do you think? I'm against it, although I did like the feelings the skirt gave me.

      I couldn't agree more with you about not putting men in boxes. I have to admit I was taken somewhat by surprise when I first discovered my husband in lingerie. I wish he would have felt that he could trust be enough to have trusted me with his secret but I can somewhat understand his fear.

      At first I have to admit at first for some reason I was a bit angry and had a lot of unanswered questions about this man. But the more I thought about it the sillier my fears seemed, as you say just because a man wears lingerie that doesn't make him any less of a man. Now I actually encourage him a bit by buying him gifts of lingerie.

      I love my manly man but I also love his demeanor when he is in a camisole and bra. He seems so much more attentive and demure, it is during some of these moments when we have had some of our deepest conversations. I did lay the law down to him though, this is our little secret, I won't have his so called friends laughing at him behind his back.

      In addition he has agreed to keep his legs, arms, chest and back hair free and since I have no intention of shaving his back he goes to my salon for waxing. The girls there are friends of mine and are quite discreet. It just looked too silly wearing a lacy bra on a hairy chest.

      He really does look quite cute when he's dressed in his lingerie and we have played around with makeup and hair to accentuate his appearance when he dresses. I really wanted to see what his limits were so on a couple of occasions for fun we experimented with a few other articles of clothing. The only objection I have gotten to date was when I suggested it would be a lot easier if he would come with me to buy his lingerie so he could be fitted. He told me he didn't think he could, but I have gotten him to go out dressed with me to a gay bar one night for a drag show. I just thought he might find the experience freeing, but instead he just sat there like a deer in headlights.

      I love the man I married and I have accepted that we all have our peculiarities. I wouldn't expect him to tell me what to wear or not to wear and I wouldn't trade this man who likes lingerie for all the manly men in the world.

      I love to wear panties. They are just nice underwear and comfortable. My wife sometimes buys them for me and she thinks they look good on me. what's the big deal? I guess there's this notion that it's not masculine or something. Maybe it falls into the same category as men shouldn't cry either. Who gives a flip. It's a fee country and since I started looking into this stuff on line, it seems that many men wear panties.

      Hey Hope, I hope this picture is suitable for your hub. I have started all over again with a new account. I wish my wife was as understanding as you are. It is nice to hear something positive about a man that likes to wear lingerie. I would have to agree with some of your viewers, if it is not infringing on, or hurting anyone else and trying to change someone, what does it hurt? Is it bad for a man to try and feel sexy? Yes I like to feel sexy and a nice pair of panties does that for me, but I am more comfort driven though. Personally I do not want to be viewed or view others it is just something I love to do and in formats as this, to even talk about it where it is safe, and secure. Anyway I like for my lingerie to be neat, not saggy, bulging, or frilly etc. I just like to keep it simple and I think most guys on the web get carried away to a point of now it looks ugly. Nice neat firm fitting panties or lingerie that is appropriate for your occasion and location is the key.

      I am married and have worn panties & some other lingerie items (corsets, girdles, nylons, camisoles, but no bras) for > 20 years. Wife bought me some nice panties in the past and played along in bed. For serveral years she is no longer interested in intimacy or even just talking about intimate things. It may be a MUTUAL communication problem.

      It's the feeling, the sensations, the thoughts, the desires, the sound of nylons stocking rustling under my trousers. It's imagining that, like the magic panties story, that I could have something less bulky, inconspicuous and rounded between my legs.

      I am semi-retired and working part time. I have recently bought and wear some skirts around the house, especially when I do housework. Wife was shocked the first time she saw me in my pretty floral skirt. However, no questions were asked. In the recent past she ridiculed ME about several things.

      For about 2 years I have been wearing custom-made panties with satin sleeves. A pity I did not know about these sooner. They are very, very erotic. You may say they are an "Ersatz"; for me they have become the "real thing," since the wife has almost 0 interest. The sleeve panties never say no, they are never too tired, never too sore, never talk back, never ridicule me, never throw me out and they are ready whenever I am. They are simply very comforting and comfortable to wear, day and nite. Who needs a woman?

      Hi Hope,

      Yep I wear lingerie too.Been cought twice in many years of wearing.Once was fun(:)once wasn't but I just shruged it off.Had a girl friend years ago that just loved to dress us both up in it.She had great stuff and lots of it because she modeled it for catalogs.Only once hav I had a store cleck be less than happy to help with my selections and most never even bat an eye over my purchases.To me no big deal.But from my guy stand point why do women get all the pretty, lacey, colorful, soft underthings?Till internet shopping came in you should have tried to get something"guy sexy",boxers and a vest in silk or satin.6 months at one time.Final found a pair of red womens boxers a box of dye and a costume (pirates vest)from a holloween shop.It is better now and mostly due to the net.Still womens clothes are much sexier than guys still.

      Keep writing Hope your great for the ego and maybe some will see better after read your posts.

      I am a married male who love panties and lingerie on me and women . I do not understand why women think it may be a gay thing. Most Gay men want nothing to do with women much less their panties.

      My first wife was very into it She would suprize me with new gifts all the time. We had much fun with it . She is no longer with us du to a drunk driver.

      5 years later I remarried and my current wife knows all about it, However she is much less receptive.I am pretty sure she wishes i didn't do it .

      As for why i like to wear panties . Well for one it feels so much better. They look nicer. When i wear them all day its a constant reminder of just how sexy women really are. Sometimes i like to feel as if my women is in control and the dominant one . I love it when we both slip into bed wearing mathcing nighties and pantyhose the feeling of all that silkyness rubbing on eachother is a feeling that is out of this world!

      Although I wish more women were into this sort of thing . I really do not care if the women do not like it because there is a women out there who will and she is the women who will take your panty husband from you . I think the main problem women have with it is this " what would my friends think if they knew my man did this ?" my answer is Who says they have to know ?

      I do love and adore women I am totally straight 100 percent !

      I've gotta chime in too. I've been cross dressing since my early teen and with my first and second wives. The first thought it was funny at first and could be a bit cruel about it but in the end she was supportive and went shopping with me, we just had other issues. My second wife was and is still a little concerned that I'll "come out" or something and start living as a women. I reassure her that I'm not interested in that and we pretty much have a good time with it. I wear corsets to bed with stockings etc. There is a bit of a d/s thing going on too similar to other posters. I'm a big guy (6' 1" and 200 lbs) with muscles and a hairy body (most of the time). The best I've ever felt in womens underwear is when I've shaved my legs and then put on stockings, oh man that feels freakin' amazing. I've also noticed that it alters my mood, I'm far more calm and loving when wearing panties and I wear them for the feel and the feminization mostly rarely for the thrill of being caught. Having said that, when the light is getting low in the evening I sometimes walk the dogs with a camisole or bra on under my white tee shirt, it would be pretty obvious if someone walked up to me. Any way thanks for discussing this!

I have been married for over 40 years and my wife is ok with my wearing panties 24/7 but i wish i could wear more then panties. Several women at work ,know my desire for female lingerie and we talk quite a bit about my desire. they know i have satin or silk panties on and one even buys me new panties. i have told them i wish i could wear a bra with the panties but wife raised a big fuss when she found some false breast in my dresser. i have reach ed the point where i don't care if any females know i wear panties and female lingerie. the clerk at victorias secrete with help fit me the dressing room with panties and bras but have to hide the bras at home.

      to you younger men, let your partner know of your desires and where what you enjoy, i wish i did when was younger . i am not gay, but enjoy so much to be with a female when wearing female lingerie. next doctor visit, i am going to wear my panties, doctor is a female also.

      Im 63 and wear pretty panties 24/7 and have for about 20 years, wore them part time since I was about 23. I also love to wear nylons and garter belts. My wife of couse knows since I wear my pretty girly panties 24/7. The first time we went on a cruise I packed my suit case with mens underwear but the first time I opened my suit case on ship I realized my wife had taken all those old male underwear out and replaced them all with my pretty panties and I have not worn anything for underwear than my pretty girly panties since.

      I am a very married man I own 15 bras and over 70 pairs of panties. At least once a month I have to go and see what lacy/frilly/cheekie panty just hit the shelves. The more girly the better. I love shopping for lingerie also. The excitement is almost unbearable when I get home to put on a new bra or panty.

      I like to wear womens lingerie too, I like the feel of the soft silky fabric and the sexy look of it. I am a straight male and I would never tell my girlfriend. She just wouldn't understand. For me a nice slinky chemise is amazing and when I'm wearing it I just can't resist looking in the mirror. I also own a corset too and the feeling of that being tightened against my body is amazing. There's no harm in it I think and it's nice to know that there's other guys out there in healthy relationships doing the same thing.

      My panty fetish goes back as far as I can remember. I loved the feel of them and the thrill of wearing them. The first time I left the house wearing panties the rush was unbelieveable. Over the years I would wear them whenever to opportunity arose. My first wife wouldn't accept it and threatened to expose me on several occasions. My present wife tolerates it and has purchased panties for me in the pasr, but doesn't like me to be in her face with it. I now wear them 24/7. Don't care who knows. Doctors visits, massage, noboby ever says a word.

      It is interesting that this Hub still gets comments a long time after it was posted.

      That in itself proves lots of the comments that indicate that lots of men wear panties and other lingerie.

      I wear primarily for the tactile part. Right now I'm dressed from head to foot in lingerie. A pair of lace topped stockings, a lacy garter belt with matching panties, a black satin nightie, and a black satin dressing gown/robe.

      I'm 61 years old and have been wearing panties since I was quite young -- probably 8 years old. I don't own any male underwear .

      My reaction from ladies has been mixed. There is no middle ground. They either like it or hate it, Those that like it don't just like it, they get quite aroused by it. Those that hate it are quite repuksed and most have connected to the (very wrong) stereotype that men who dress in soft sexy lingerie are gay,

      I've actually seen statistics that show that the vast majority of those of us who wear panties are in fact heterosexual. I've also seen surveys that remind the readers that gay men are generally attracted to the traditional image of males, and are in fact less likely to be interested in anything feminine.

      I've posted some of my thoughts on my blog if anyone is interested.

      Loveto be bad 8 years ago

      Been wearing panties off and on for 40 years. I've had great experiences with women actually liking me to wear them. My last marriage ended over them though.

      I've been married 5 years to my current wife. I like to do a lot of cooking and while making lasagna the sauce popped and splattered my shirt. My wife suggested she make me an apron. I jokingly said "yeah make it frilly and with matching panties".

      The old thoughts I had been fighting came back, that night I snuck into her panty drawer and put them on under my sleep pants for a quick feel of the slick sexy material. Un known to me she saw them peeking out from under the top edge of my sleep pants when she came to bed. The next day I found 7 pair in my underwear drawer and all the mens missing. I also have a frilly apron that I now have to cook in with panties only. It's been interesting to say the least, as I sip my morning coffee with a locked on collar in my panties and silky nighty, now a requirement. Seems she had a dominant streak in her and we both love it.

      Great post! I'd suggest anyone wanting to should at least give it a go. 4 out of 5 women in my past have thought it was great. One insisted I wear her panties the day after she wore them, it turned her on to know i was wearing her dirty panties.

      Better to live a life fullfilled than to die wishing you had.

      I have been wearing nylon panties, pantyhose and camisoles for about 25 years. Within the last five years, I have been wearing these items under my work clothes. Nylon underwear is some much more comfortable! The taboo aspect of wearing lingerie at work is very exciting. When I sit at my desk, the cuffs of my pants raise above my ankles exposing my nylons. At the same time, I cannot wait for the day when I can sit at my desk with my exposed nylon-clad ankles and nobody thinks twice about it. I hope this day comes soon.

      YES I AGREE there are some sext babydoll nighties out there here's my story, wife says she is tired of me wearing t shirt and underwear to bed. She says she wants to spice up our love life. So i put on a babydoll nighty and wear it to bed. She sees it and says that's different nothing else is said. It has been a month and even though i don't think she really likes to see me in the nighty she doesn't say i cant wear it. I love the feel of the nighty it feels so good and she has given me backrubs with it on and no big deal. Wide says she doesn't mind but i think shes not really saying what's on her mind though. Hope what should i do i have tried to talk to her and yet she doesn't say alot she knows i love to wear it for her and it is sexy on me she said that in a nice way is she tryng to get used to this? what would you recommend? We have been married 16 years. I also wear nylon panties and she does not mind those at all she has told me i look good in panties hope i love to wear the nighty for her and it feels good on me a part of me says keep wearing it she will get used to it.

      I wear nylon panties 24/7 as they are so much more comfortable than men's. My wife doesn't mind at all. We share the same underwear drawer. Occasionally I'll put on a pair of her stockings and either a long slip or nightgown just to spice things up and we both enjoy it. Nylon nightgowns are also much more comfortable than men's pajamas. She doesn't mind this either and we are closer now more than ever. I even have my own french maids outfit.

      I have been wearing silky panties and slips since I was a very young lad, probably from about the age of 8 or so. Mom and older sis's things had to suffice at first, but I will never forget the first time I worked up the courage to enter a lingerie boutique to purchase my first slip and pantie set.The saleslady was so helpful!Not only do I enjoy the feel of soft silky lingerie - it's also the "prettiness" of the clothing I adore as well.

      I have been with 4 women who knew of my panty fetish. One didn't really like it but tolerated it on occasion... the other three loved it! I'm all man but just love the feel and look of satin, what can I say? The taboo aspect makes it exciting and spices up our sexlives. My current girlfriend (4yrs now) loves it. She buys me panties all the time. Sometimes I find a sexy pair of panties on my pillow with a note saying "Put these on and nothing else. I want you to walk around the house in these until I get home!".... wow. She'll even buy 2 sets of the same style in different colors - his & hers. I feel totally comfortable and free with my woman as a result and I would want her to feel the same way too.

      I've worn panties 24/7 for approximately 5 years now. Being single, I have to buy my own.For me it's mainly about the feel and how I feel about myself wearing them. I feel calmer and more self confident.

      I do enjoy wearing skirts from time to time not that I'm opposed to wearing shorts or trousers where that's more practical .

I had a lot of them nevered asked or any thing just started buying, she found out the first day I wore them, so guys don't be ashamed just do it she'll either like it or not, it's your life.

      I am now in my sisties. I began wearing panties and other lingerie when I was ten years old. I had a battle over tis with my mother but after many unsuccesful attempts she finally gave in to my desires. Since this time I have never worn a pair of men's underpants. I love the soft feel of panties rather than the somewhat rough feel of underpants. Even the fancy, designer stle underpants don't feel very good. At times I just wear simple, plain panties at other times I prefer something fancy. I am a psychologist and see nothing detrimental to men who chose panties over underpants. Please continue submitting comments since I do enjoy reading them.

      It's always fun when I read incredulos men's comments which imply that any man who wears panties must be gay. For one, it is simply untrue, a fact which is born out by the evidence of the hundreds of men who read these articles, and for two, it assumes an overwhelming arrogance that gay men would want to pretend to be straight. This isn't the 1950's chaps, there are gay men all over the show, they don't need to pretend to be straight and then sneak into women's underwear drawers. They can purchase their own lingerie online.

      Wearing panties is a wonderful experience, and if your partner is into it, so much the better. I do believe men have to be a little selective about the cut of the lingerie, we need to leave room for our bits. I find stretchy material like Spandex and nylon blends to be most accomidating while an all lace pantie is probaly not going to work unless they put some stretch in it. And if you are going to wear lingerie, you should give serious consideratoin to shaving your body hair, it just adds the perfect touch.

      Being an inveterate crossdresser, panties and other delicates have been a big part of my life. They are an outward manifestation of my sex as it were. They also feel good and make me feel good.

      Yes, it's strange but then, if you're not afflicted with a particular fetish, then it's difficult to explain and even harder to understand.

      Ain't it great though that we're not all the same? It takes all kinds.

      For me (a guy who likes wearing them), it would be a cop out to say that I just like the feeling. Although my attractions run 98% toward the female gender, another part of me is thrilled by the idea of adopting a female role. In those fantasies, I guess I would most closely identify myself with a Lesbian, in that I fantasize about the experience being "all woman". Of course, that just can't happen, but anything that approaches it gets me excited.

      That's part of the time. The rest of the time, I like feeling dominant over my woman, who shares all of my fantasies with me.

      I guess I mean to say that it's somewhat complicated, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with it either. It's something that excites me, something that my wife can use to excite me, and also something that doesn't overwhelm or distract from other modes of expressing our affection for each other.

      Well, divorce comes to mind. Though that really is the last step, and I wouldn't recommend it just because of the fact that you like to wear lingerie and she doesn't like it. It's more the fact that you feel trapped and alone. This goes beyond the boundaries of just wearing lingerie, and into the realm of relationship counselling, which I am imminently NOT qualified for.

      Sounds like you have a communication problem though, and it probably extends to a lot of things. So it may be time for professional counselling anyway.

      There's yet another option too, and that's just to wear the lingerie sometimes, regardless of what she thinks. Is life really so long that you have time to spend it miserable and denying yourself something so inherently innocent and harmless as wearing lingerie?

      Then again, you evidently chose to marry this woman for some reason, and if we assume that reason was love, then as we all know, love isn't perfect. But love should be about coming to understand one another's imperfections.

      There's so much amiss in this situation that it is quite impossible to offer any real advice, and I'd take what I have said with a pinch of salt. When it comes down to it, life is about choices. You could tell your wife that you feel trapped and alone, there is a chance she may feel the same way. Also, 10 years ago is a long time to have told someone something, her feelings may have mellowed and changed in that time, who knows.

      At the end of the day, you're both human being with needs that probably aren't being met. What more could you do for her? Does she have any secret desires and fantasies? Could you help one another explore and live them?

      Talking to your wife, not just about the lingerie, but about your mutual desires, dreams, and the things you feel you're both missing out on may be a step forward.

      I hate to be a stickler for superfluous things like detail, but if you read the Hub (I know, what a concept!) and perhaps any of the others associated with it, or even the comments above your own, you'll notice that there are a significant number of straight men who get into lingerie quite happily by themselves.

      Also, it's probably worth noting that there are a great deal of men who would LOVE to hear their date ask them to wear panties later on. There was even an episode of Friends where Chandler ended up in women's underwear in a not dissimilar fashion, and I believe Joey also put on a pair of panties at one time or other.

      The ones that have to be forced into lingerie sometimes enjoy it a little too much - but that's another (much more R Rated) topic.

      Gender-bending is fun because it can feel so good, and it is especially thrilling if what one is doing is hidden and secret--you feel sooo naughty and aroused, knowing that you've got a secret. So good for you for allowing the magic to happen. If the world is a stage, the least we can do is choose a portion of our costume.

      Very good article. Hopefully it'll encourage all genders to accept their partners for who they are -- even if they don't perfectly fit in society's mold.

      I enjoy the feel of girly undies, and I admit the fact that another reason is that it is "naughty". My wife knows that I like to wear female undies and tolerated me wearing them in bed. When I added a bra she was quite cross. She said that it spoiled sex because it made her feel like a lesbian. I find it a huge turn on especially when she would caress the suspender straps and bra. She seems very reluctant to do this though. What harm am I doing? Why can't she just occasionally say: "Put your sexy undies on, I'm feeling randy....."
