Lingerie Secrets Revealed: The Three Types of Men Who Wear Lingerie
Let's Get Statistical...

Apologies, you should probably ignore that title. In reality there are at least as many types of men as there are types of lingerie, and probably more. However, for the sake of discussion and disclosure we're going to lump all of you into one of three categories. Pigeon holing people is super fun. If you vote on which of the listed types you are in the poll, we can make a graph with statistics. Statistics are also fun.
Seriously though, many people think that all men who wear lingerie are the same – raving gay crossdressers. That is totally not the case, and this article will expose a little more truth about men who wear lingerie.
The Strictly Panties Man\
The strictly panties man just wears one kind of lingerie. Some men only like the feeling of hosiery, for isntance, and never wear any other kind of lingerie or women's clothing. Other men might feel the same way about panties, or bras. This type of lingerie wearer is almost always exclusively heterosexual and might even be offended at the thought of being branded 'feminine'.
The Lingerie Afficionado
The lingerie afficionado loves all kinds of lingerie, but does not necessarily identify as being feminine whilst wearing it. For the lingerie afficionado, wearing lingerie is simply a means to visual and tactile pleasure, it is not a means to get in touch with a softer, feminine side. Lingerie afficionados own plenty of lacy, silky, and satiny lingerie. They will often have large collections of lingerie that exceeds those owned by the average woman.

On the internet at least, this seems to form a large part of the male panty wearing population. Men who enjoy feeling feminine will wear women's undergarments, often have an alternate female name and/or persona, and quite often wear other types of women's clothing including shoes, skirts and dresses. Men who wear lingerie for the feeling of being feminine may also enjoy being submissive to a partner.
If you're not familiar with this phenomenon you might be surprised to find out that a great deal of these men identify as being straight and are often happily married family men. Not all are straight however, many of these men are bisexual, and sometimes they are gay.
If you're a man who wears womens lingerie...
you may fit into one of these categories, but it is more than likely you fit a couple of them and several more I haven't mentioned here. Perhaps you'd like to think that you're in one category, but secretly you're really in another (it doesn't take much for an afficionado to become a feminist), perhaps you'd like to have your say. If so, do it below...
