What Is Your Place In The Panty Revolution?

First things first, what is the panty revolution? On a practical level, it is a revolution in the way men are 'allowed' to dress. On a higher level, it is a revolution in the way we think of men and women. Western women have made great strides in breaking out of the gender boxes which were so strongly enforced for centuries, however men have yet to make the same progress. Even a very conservative non lingerie wearing male friend of mine commented how unfair it was that I could wear a guy's jersey and jeans without any issue, but there is no way he could go out wearing women's clothing.

 

Those men who have a yearning to wear women's clothing are even less well off, whilst the majority of men may not feel the chains that bind their wardrobes, you panty wearers are all too well aware of the double standards that surround the issue of dressing the sexes. The panty revolution is about effecting the way we look at men and women, it's about allowing both sexes the freedom to wear whatever they want to wear. It's about truly being able to express oneself through one's clothing. It's about freedom.

 

A few readers have mentioned that reading these articles makes them feel militant about their lingerie wearing and cross dressing, whilst others have mentioned that the very same articles have made them feel a little bad about the fact that they are still 'in the closet' about their lingerie wearing.

 

I have some good news for shy and retiring panty wearing men. There is no need to take to the streets in drag to effect the panty revolution. The most effective and long lasting revolutions are those that occur quietly, person by person at a grass roots level. There's no need to flash your panties in the public's face if you're not the exhibitionist type. (There are enough trouble making types among you who will do that anyway ;) Just being who you are is enough to make a little difference to the world.

 

Perhaps for the moment you want to keep your panty wearing to yourself. That is okay. Perhaps you will always want to keep your panty wearing to yourself. That is okay too. But if these articles give you the courage to share a little, to experiment a little, or even just to feel more comfortable with your lingerie desires, then the panty revolution has worked its work, because at the end of the day, it's okay to be you.

My role is to read Hope's blogs and comment when appropriate. It's much easier than painting my nails. :)

I don't quite know my place in the panty reveloution

I keep mine pretty well hidden and if anyone sees them, then hopefully they will try them as well.

I love panties and it's all i wear. I do have some mens underwear but it rarely ever gets worn and it's only the sexiest that gets chosen.

I could never understand why men always had cotton undies or those god forbiden boxer shorts. I still don't understand those. It's like a Soviet designed tap panty.

Panties are so nice and soft against ones tackle it's almost a crime agaist yourself not to be wearing them. Of course a close shave of the pubic region makes wearing soft panties that much better.

I've worn panties off and on since I was 4 years old. Grandma put me in my first pair. I remember they were yellow and frilly and felt soooo cool on my little weenie. I loved it. She never said anything when I continued wearing them until I was about 8. Then she bought me some boys wear. Rough and uncomfortable, I went back to panties. Grandma just gave up after awhile. She told me when I was 30 that Grandpa and Uncle Carl chuckled at me. It seems they wore panties too and thought we must have had a rather interesting gene pool since we all served in the armed forces, with distinction. Both Grandpa and Uncle Carl were buried in panties.

I sleep in nightgowns and were lingerie whenever I can to work or to play. My weight is a nice 178 for my 6' frame and I keep my muscles toned, better to show off my legs. Only one of my four kids knows. She is the youngest (16) and thinks her dad is the coolest because of it. She kids me that if her friends only knew that her dad picks her up 'enfemme' underneath, they'd be in shock.

My wife also buys me gifts that are really in good taste and fit perfectly.

What more can a guy ask for? Oh yeah, when we travel by car, I'm always dressed completely. Gives my wife 'easy access' when it's just the two of us.

I absolutely LOVE the feeling of the satin and lace of lingerie. Add a short skirt and some stockings to the bras and panties or cami's, or a teddy with the skirt and stockings, and I'm in heaven! I don't often wear the lingerie in public, and NEVER the skirts or visible things, but it's the greatest feeling in the world on the rare occasions I go out in my panties and stockings.

Like robin48 said, it's definitely nice to see so many other men wear lingerie. It gives me hope for society. Maybe one day the 'social restrictions' just won't exist anymore, and men and women alike can just wear what they feel comfortable in, instead of the things everyone else says is acceptable, and everyone will be comfortable with everyone else. Just another step on the road to bringing humanity together as a whole! :)

My only real problem is finding a good fit. I'm 5'9, and weigh in at around 200lbs. I was getting downright fat for a while there, but my job now has me pretty muscular, and getting the right fit is difficult, since it's just not all made for people with the kind of build I have.
