Precious Men's Panties
A man's panties are precious. Women may sometimes fail to understand the importance of panties to a man who loves to wear lingerie, because to us women, panties are really a practical item of every day existence. Sure, they can be used for appealing effect, and it is certainly true that not all panties are created equal, but nevertheless, panties are, for most women, just panties.
For a man however, panties can be much more. If he wears panties because he likes to feel feminine, then panties can act as physical, material conduits to feelings within himself of softness and femininity. Without them he feels bare and masculine. Alone with his own body it is more difficult to access the cascading feelings of joyful well being which come when he dons his panties.
We can all relate to putting on nice clothes and feeling good. Well, the same applies to men who wear panties and other items of women's lingerie. The panties aren't mere scraps of cloth, they represent a part of his personality, of who he is.
Interestingly enough, it is often for this reason that women object to the men in their lives wearing panties. It is not the panties that the woman really dislikes, but the creature which her mate becomes when he is in his panties. When a man feels differently, he behaves differently, and it is possible that the softer gentler male is not what the lady in his life is looking for.
Fortunately with a little bit of time and just a skerrick of mutual understanding, these issues can often be overcome. People are multi-faceted beings, and to expect the one you spend your life with to behave within the confines of some imagined role is a recipe for disaster at the best of times. That's a sword that cuts both ways.
Men can sometimes feel guilty for wearing lingerie quite independent of women of course. The self is usually the harshest judge (unless you're an American Idol contestant,) and many men are quite capable of independently whipping up a storm of self recrimination and loathing large enough to consume them. At these times, a man often purges his panty collection, throwing them away. Of course, what he is really trying to throw away isn't the panties, it's a part of himself, a part less easily stuffed at the bottom of the trash can. For this reason I recommend that men never throw away a lingerie collection. It's a waste of time and money and it can never achieve the goal they want it to achieve.
The solution, of course, is to simply relax and accept oneself for who one is. An interesting creature, walking the gender lines with the alacrity of an acrobat. One moment, totally masculine, the next bathing in the warm waters of the feminine. Yes, you really can have both.
