About Hope

Hope Alexander is an unlikely fashion guru, pseudo philosopher, and lady who likes men who wear lingerie. Some say that Hope Alexander once round housed Chuck Norris. (After he claimed that public health care would have invariably resulted in the Virgin Mary aborting Jesus.) Others say she eats LOL cats on toast for breakfast and that she once scaled Notre Dame holding a freedom fry in one hand and a baguette in the other. It later turned out that the whole stunt had been filmed not a mile from a major road, which caused a major backlash against her popular bounty hunting tv series in which she bailed out ice heads, then tracked them down whilst wearing feathers and beads in her hair. Today, a shadow of her former self, she writes on the Internet.

Ermagherd, Eberjey Boythong Beige Panties

boythong panties for men

Two instances of beige within one week? Do my eyes decieve me? They do not, because there is a lot of mesh and lace going on in a very small amount of surface area here, which makes these panties highly technical and probably suited to anyone in the fields of Engineering or Entropy or English. Or Eneything. You see what I did there and you wish I hadn’t. But look, pretty panties!

Chirping Sunshine Hanky Panky Thong

chirpy pantiesOkay, this thong is seriously cute, and the reason it is seriously cute isn’t the birdies fluttering around the flowers. It’s the fact that these are high waisted panties in the front and cheeky thongs in the back, with a thick waistband sitting above the scrap of fabric which tucks neatly in between the wearer’s cheeks. Very light, very summery, and fashionably on-trend! The only possible problem you might find with these is that they are one-size fits all, so if you’re much bigger than a 12, it could be a stretch.

The Thrill of Secret Panties

There are a lot of reasons why men like to wear lingerie. In some cases it is about tactile sensation, in other it is a feeling of femininity, and for some men it is all about the taboo – the secret breaking of the social contract which says men’s underwear should be nothing but functional. For men who wear lingerie for the taboo, sharing their fetish might very well defeat the purpose entirely. After all, it’s hard to get a thrill from rebellion if those around you know about it and don’t mind it.

This creates quite a quandary for some panty wearing men. In order to enjoy a dirty little secret, it must stay a dirty little secret. And are we entitled to such secrets in our lives? Surely we must be. There is no law, written or unwritten that says we must be an open book to the world.

Now, I’m well aware that this contradicts 90% of my previous advice about wearing lingerie and having an intimate relationship. I still do think that it is a good idea to share one’s love of lingerie when and where possible, for the betterment of the relationship and for the expressing of the self. At the end of the day, or indeed, at the bottom of the panty drawer, it may not be the secret that matters. The motivation might be the more important thing. It’s one thing to hide a lingerie fetish because one enjoys it. It’s quite something else to be hiding one out of shame.

And now… for our Featured Panties!

In this post I’m also breaking a taboo of my own: I’m featuring a beige pair of panties. The first such pair of panties I’ve liked in a very, very long time. These panties managed to charm me with mesh detailing and original embroidery, not to mention darker chocolate accents. These are made by Intimates Boutique, which is such a generic name for a lingerie house that I’m mildly suspicious it could be a front for something even more deliciously lacy and deviant. (I say deviant in a good way of course, the earth would not exist if it weren’t for the willingness of all creatures great and small to deviate from the norm once in a while.)

Peachy Keen Bliss Mesh Briefs

These adorable mesh panties are just some of a very colorful range from Natori. Some of the patterns and colors are almost good enough to eat. They’re also wonderful for adding some seasoning and spice to your lingerie collection, with colors like a lime green ‘lemongrass’, which is really quite hard to collect. There are also a couple of pattern prints there, both animalistic and primal in nature. And of course, Natori represents quality, so you know that these will be heavenly comfortable to wear.

New! Wacoal Full Bloom Hipster Panties

wacoal hipster panties for men

New from Wacoal, these pretty panties come in a range of lace lined color combinations. The ‘Amparo Blue’ as seen above is only the beginning of a light and airy summer line, which ranges from the playful to the conservative. There are even two beige / brown options, tastefully labelled as Cinnamon and Coffee Bean, presumably because you’ll want to grind them up and drink them, they’re just that gosh darn delicious to behold. These panties feature a full lace front, but there won’t be a lot of modesty coverage for your behind thanks to the all mesh back which keeps your cheeks securely contained, but visible should inspection be necessary.

Romantic Panties

These super low cut panties will provide male wearers with the same conundrum many women have when squeezing into romantic clothing – just where are you supposed to put everything? Turns out, that’s a trick question. It doesn’t much matter which way you choose to arrange yourself, the sheer mesh of these panties ensures that your secrets are secret no more! With ribbon side accents and the requisite blue bow, these are panties for summer romance. These run in sizes from xsmall to xlarge, so everyone can share the spirit of pale panty romance.

Panty Adventures! Vintage Rose Panties

vintage rose panties for men

Look at these panties! I love them because not only are they pretty, but they have a certain subversiveness to them. It’s like they’ve taken note of the ubiquitous floral theme that creeps through the world of lingerie, and instead of bucking the trend, have decided to go large with it. Like Lady Gaga in a meat dress, but more appealing to General Tastes. (General Tastes loves his panties, you know ;)

The Importance Of Men Wearing Lingerie

This is part of the series of articles being re-posted from their original location.

Men wearing lingerie. Some might say that this sort of thing is heralding the decline of Western Civilization, (along with the atheist homosexual agenda, whatever that may be), but it is undeniable that many things that once were firmly stuck in the closet have been coming to light over the last decade or so. Just a few months ago, same sex couples were granted the right to marry in California, and in the years prior to that, same sex marriage, or civil unions became a reality in several countries. It’s not just the gay community which has benefited from this new freedom however, it is also the straight community, who can now be freer about their proclivities and desires in ways that would have been career destroying in the 1980’s.

Men who like to wear lingerie, for instance, can now do so more openly than ever before. Several of my readers have written to me, or commented on how they quite often shop for lingerie in stores, not in a surreptitious manner, but openly and forthrightly. Not only are they not demonized and cast out of the store for wanting to purchase bras or panties, they quite often report receiving exemplary service from the store clerks. Whilst not all men who like lingerie may enjoy this extent of purchasing freedom, it is none the less a step in the right direction that those souls who do brave the public eye, are more often than not, treated no differently from any other customer.

With increased exposure comes increased understanding, not just of others, but of ourselves, and the way society works.

Though you probably wouldn’t think it to read all these articles, the wearing of panties or a bra by a heterosexual man is hardly what I would call red letter news. They’re simply scraps of fabric which mean nothing in themselves, but which have been invested with meaning and significance by society at large. For a man to wear them, taboos and boundaries must be stretched, if not shattered. Some people find this disturbing. The idea of a man in lingerie can even be sickening to these people – yet if you covered the same guy with a T-shirt instead – simply a differently shaped piece of fabric, everything would be okay.

Men wearing lingerie pushes our ideas of masculinity, and challenges the inbuilt social programming which we are subjected to from an early age. This is not always pleasant, and many people will reject the idea, calling it gross, and even ‘wrong’. If they took the time to think about it in a more abstract sense, they might be surprised at the vehemence they reacted with. If we’d been raised from babies to believe that men wore skirts and women wore slacks and that lacy panties were imbued with inherent masculinity, would we then be ‘disgusted’ to see a man in a pair of boxer shorts? Probably.

The choice then is do we see beyond the artificial constructs which frame society, forcing us all into little boxes denoted by dress, accessories, and toys, or do we look beyond those things to the things that matter: kindness, humanity, love, acceptance, tolerance and lace.

Fruit Of The Loom Panties For Sex

The title of this post is somewhat misleading, but that’s because Amazon’s search results are misleading these days. I typed ‘panties’ into the search bar and Amazon suggested that I try ‘panties for sex’ – because apparently that’s a common search term on Amazon.

So, of course, being only human, I tried the panties for sex search. And I got this:

This six pack of Fruit of the Loom panties which come with the mysterious, yet common customer review: I received pastel colored solids and returned them.

In addition to sexiness, these panties occasionally come in pastels, not the pictured ‘heather patterns’. Be warned. Warned! Warned of their sexiness, warned of their cotton polyester blend and warned of potential pastelness.

Pearl G-String Bikini

pearl g string pantiesFew panties offer the wearer the opportunity to wear a string of pearls in the crevice of one’s derriere, but these ones do. I can’t guarantee that these will be the utmost comfortable panties, owing to the pearl string extending past all sorts of immeasurably sensitive areas. These aren’t cheap either, but the chance to bejewel one’s buttocks never is.

Stepping Out Of The Panty Closet

This is one of a series of reposted articles taken from my original Hub Pages site, which is currently being decimated in an attempt to cleanse the internet of anything that might offend people who think that the world should be santized for the benefit of their offspring. I’m rehosting them here, a location where adults are free to be adults and discuss adult topics and ‘mature’ isn’t a dirty word.

This article relates to an issue that I know affects a great deal of men who like to wear women’s lingerie. You meet someone, she’s beautiful, and she’s sweet, and she is smart, she’s everything you want in a woman. There’s just one problem – she either doesn’t know about your proclivities towards wearing women’s lingerie, or she can’t stand you wearing it. In either case, you’ve run up against a very sticky problem. What do you do?

There are two levels of problem here, the first one is more easily solved than the second. The first one is that she isn’t into it because you haven’t told her about it. Many men avoid telling their partners until later on in the relationship because they fear rejection. This is a mistake for a couple of reasons. One, there is a stage in a relationship, usually around the time that things start getting intimate, when it is only fair to her and you to reveal this desire.

The second reason it is a mistake to withold the fact that you wear lingerie is illustrated by comments on some of these hubs from women who say things like “Well if he wore lingerie, he better tell me on the first date, because I’ll never see him again.”

Tell me, do those women sound like nice people? Do they sound like someone you’d be happy in a relationship with? Chances are, if a woman rejects a potential mate based on what they wear regardless of their personality or any other characteristics, then she is more than likely going to be one of those soul sucking succubi who will consume you from the inside out.

People who are that narrow minded when it comes to someone they care about will have a hard time accommodating other life problems. If you can’t wear panties, then what else isn’t going to be acceptable in her world? What unrealistic expectations is she going to put on you as a man? If you lose your job and can no longer afford to buy nice clothes, will she leave you?

I am not saying that simply because a woman doesn’t want to be with a man who wears panties sometimes that she is evil, I am saying that the type of thinking that leads a person to reject a loving, caring, smart, etc guy based on his underwear is so flawed that it cannot help but have a negative impact in other areas of their life. Bottom line, if you tell her and she reacts like that, then she would make you miserable anyway.

Here’s a secret guys… if a woman loves you, she won’t care if you want to wear a dinosaur suit while making love, as long as its not all the time, and as long as you are equally accommodating of her needs and desires as she is going to have to be of yours.

I’m going to let you in on a little personal story… I wasn’t always a fan of men who wore lingerie. I didn’t even think about it. It just wasn’t something that had ever come up. Then one day I met a man, grew to like him, and at an appropriate point in our relationship, as we began to get intimate and share our desires, he shared the fact that he liked to wear womens lingerie sometimes. It was a little odd at first, but I loved him, and I soon grew to like the lingerie, to the point that I now write about it extensively.

If you’re in the closet and it doesn’t affect you, if you’re happy in your relationships, and you can live with there being a significant facet of your life that your significant other doesn’t know about, then fine, but if it is eating away at you any making you unsatisfied, then coming out of the closet isn’t just something you need to do for you, its something you need to do for your partner too. If she refuses to accept it at first, there may still be a way forward if you are willing to discuss the matter and perhaps negotiate with her. If this is a revelation you have sprung on her after several years of marriage, or if you’ve been together for several years, then be prepared to take the heat, you do deserve it.

Relationships are about negotiation and fufiling one another’s desires. Seek to find a way that you can pursue your lingerie wearing interests to the benefit of both of you.

Seamless Lace Panties, Comfort and Allure Collide

seamless lace panties

Panties without the seams are like bread without the crusts, or silver linings without the clouds – better in every way. Most seamless panties tend to be fairly boring and monochrome, designed for people who sort of wish they didn’t have to wear underwear. But these panties, these panties are sexy, gorgeous, alluring and a little bit naughty. You don’t need me to tell you that though, because you can see them and come up with your own adjectives. Check out the link below to see a few more angles on this fine speciment of super comfortable, super sexy lingerie.
