The Attraction of Men In Lingerie

Updated on October 13, 2009

Hope's Anecdote

Back in the days before we all got our jet packs, when we still used cassette tapes in our VCR's (it's terrifying to think that I have not hit 30 yet and that technology has already come and gone in my life time, at least, I think it did.)

Anyway, back when it was all about the VCR, I watched the Rocky Horror Picture show on tape until that tape degraded into a fuzzy staticy mess, so strong was the allure of the Frankenfurter. If I'm not mistaken, a great deal of women felt that way. Tim Curry was magnetic and powerful in that get up, the feminine attire and make up enhanced his masculinity rather than hid it.

Recently I have gotten some great emails, and one question that came up in them was to do with why I find men in lingerie attractive. What is it about these men in panties that keeps me coming back and writing more about them, perhaps one could say, long after the point has perhaps been made? It is a goodly question, and I shall attempt to answer it here. I can only speak for myself of course, but I am sure there are others who feel the same way, that tends to be the way the human animal works.

So without further ado, why do I find men in lingerie attractive?

Well, I believe that there is a certain attraction that men in lingerie have, men in any form of women's clothing that is. Perhaps it's the contrast of lace against muscle, the juxtaposition of hard and soft. when you want something to really stand out, you put it against its diametric opposite. This page you're reading now features black text on white space, because that is the most noticeable and readable format.

I'm probably going to lose a lot of the 'sissy' crowd here, but that's okay, to each their own. Personally I find that there is something about a man expressing a feminine side that enhances his masculinity. (Unless he does a really great job of blending in as a woman, in which case I have been known to innocently comment "Why, what big hands she has", and go merrily about my business like some kind of particularly dim red riding hood.)

I could perhaps be accused of trying to subvert males into females with these articles in some kind of Machiavellian plot to subjugate men and take over the world in a kind of amazonian conquest. Hey, if that happens, so be it. I'm free to play Supreme Empress of Earth if anyone's looking for one. In the meantime however, the aim is simply to create a greater space for the enjoyment of men wearing traditionally feminine clothing.

      Supreme Empresses, forever plotting. :) The answer to why you are attracted to men in lingerie, at least in part, can be found in a June 1922 Scientific Armenien magazine article, "Why crossdressing men kiss better" by Dr Freidrich Wilhelm Von Stuuck. It's spelled out there in black n' white. There's no disputing it. It's fact. Simple as that. Case closed.

      You can't help yourself Hope. It's over. Oh well, at least you'll have someone who'll help you with the housework as long as you provide him with the appropriate heels. :)

      Perhaps your attraction is due in part because males who embrace their feminine nature tend to be less threatening? I know that when I am dressed I feel calmer, more centered and less action/reaction oriented. Even if it is simply wearing panties under my work clothes I find that I tend to listen more and say less while at work - often with the end result that I understand the issues better and am able to see the crux of a problem clearer. The end result is that I trouble shoot better and make more concise recommendations to solve issues. I'm not saying that all women are consensus builders or that only women have this trait, but I think it's fair to say that it's a more feminine character trait shared by both genders that is more pronounced in those who lean that way.

      On some level I believe that there is less distance between males and females on a gender basis but more on a psychological one - that male and female identity is expressed more a personality basis as a sum of all traits that form and direct our behavior. It's most likely someone somewhere has studied this and given it a name, but I'm not aware of it if they have.

      In any case - I wish there were more open minds out there about modes and styles of dress!

      A healthy dose of meglomania, Hope. Don't worry I am cool with you being the Supreme Empress of the Earth. Just be careful though, be sure to look for the tall skinny mouse and the short fat serious little mousce running around in frenzy trying steal your dastardly plan. They're notorious for it.
