How Does Hope Know What I (A Man) Like About Wearing Lingerie?

Updated on October 15, 2009

My secrets, revealed...

Men often comment on the way I am uncannily able to reach into the recesses of their minds and pull out little gems about lingerie only they thought they knew. They ask how I could possibly know these things. They ask and then I cackle and disappear in a cloud of smoke, like all true professionals.

It's a fair question, though I warn you, reading this article may be akin to seeing David Blaine hanging pathetically from some wires in the middle of a packed auditorium. Still, if you want to know how the magic is done, I have no problem telling you.

Some men think I can understand the thoughts and desires of men who wear lingerie because secretly I am one. I suppose it's possible that I'm secretly a man, but if so, I'm damn good at it. Good enough to fool my mother and the attending doctor at my birth good. Still, I did have a whole nine months to plan the charade whilst in the womb (most babies sit around knitting together cells and neurons and growing a spine, apaprently I was planning the world's greatest subterfuge ever.)

That theory aside, perhaps I am simply a crazed stalker of men who love lingerie. Maybe I'm behind the curtain right now, or perhaps lurking inside your wardrobe. Was that a creak you just heard? Don't go and check, like Santa Claus, I'll be heading up the chimney to escape detection.

The truth of the matter is far less glamorous however. The truth is simply that I've been listening and paying attention for quite some time. First because a man I cared deeply about was into lingerie and then because I came to care about the community of men who wear lingerie as a whole. The men who read these articles have fortunately not been shy about sharing their feelings and opinions, and so the understanding has grown.

Fortunately, I think the message is spreading, and I think men who wear womens lingerie and other forms of womens clothing will soon find that there are many women who also mysteriously understand the urges that drive them. It's not such a strange thing for a man to want to wear lingerie or womens clothing. It makes a great deal of sense on many levels. All it takes to understand it is a willingness to understand that a societal norm is not equivalent to some great gender truth. It's amazing what you can do when you open your ears and find a little compassion in your heart.

Also, I'm probably very often wrong, but sheer volume makes me right some of the time. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

      I think you are just "one of the good ones", Hope. A give and take on an equal scale woman. I find your open mind and talent has been used for the good of creating a place for those, who would feel locked out, a place to fit in.

      Out of 8 relationships I have encountered in my life 5 were accepting of this little quirk I have. 3 were major participants, meaning they enjoyed it as much as I do.

      Imagine, opening gifts, finding assorted styles of lingerie chosen for you to wear, by the woman in your life. From my perspective I'd say the times are changing and it may not be as hard as one thinks to find an accepting partener.

      Hope, you just help the cause in so many ways. If one were to just use this hub to show their mate that there exists more participants than just themselves, and move forward. As this is something that caught my interest before puberty and is alive and well years later, I would have to ask "why drag out the inevitable?" Let the cat out of the bag and if she can't deal with it try again, don't live hiding in the corner, live happy.

      I'm so lucky to have met someone with that open and understanding mind you write about.

      When you think about it, it does no harm, and women get a lot more choice in clothing than men do - is it any wonder they get curious and wonder what the lovely materials feel like? Of course not!

      Hope, you are also wonderful and I've met a number of women in my life who could take a leaf or two out of your book, that's for sure!

      Have a great day! :)
