I occasionally get comments from people who haven’t bothered to read all 1,000 of my hubs that ask if the lingerie I’m discussing can be worn by men, then why it is advertised by women? I imagine they type this with a smug sort of satisfaction, as if they’ve proved some deeper point about the inherent femininity of lingerie. They haven’t, they’ve simply replaced their ability to think independently with marketing. I imagine they also drive by McDonalds chanting ‘have it your way’, and occasionally shriek ‘I’m lovin’ it!’ for no apparent reason whenever they view a larger than normal M.
This saucy little number was available from Elegantly Scant, an independent designer of lingerie that uses silks, cottons, and vintage laces in ways that will blow your mind. Ye gods, how lovely is that lingerie? Hmm? Can we quantify it? Where are the panty scientists when you need them?
Nothing is so fine as a man who knows how to wear frills with style. Whether about the neck, the wrists, or beneath his clothing about his waist and legs, a man who wears frills is a man with an eye for classic ornamental style.
Unfortunately, unless one wears a frilled cravat and or perhaps pretends one is a pirate (a practice legitimized by thousands of screaming Johnny Depp fans,) one must keep ones frills confined to one’s underwear.
Okay men who like to wear women’s clothing, here’s a challenge for you: looking better in lingerie than women do. Is it possible? I say yes. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so this is always going to be a subjective matter, but let’s not allow that to hold us back in the quest to make men look good in their lingerie.
Now here’s a way of wearing the cool touch of lingerie without anyone throwing a broken social norm induced fit at you. Silk scarves are the perfect accompaniment for any outfit, can be worn close around your neck where you can feel the light and silky touch, and will not cause any controversy whatsoever unless you happen to be digging ditches and you choose a mauve scarf that clashes with your overalls. Also, bondage!
People sometimes wonder what the future will look like. Politicians and scientists paint an ominous picture of a burned out husk of a planet covered with ashes. Religious folk will have you believe that a Sky King will come down and torture the baddies whilst the goodies float up to heaven to receive harps and vapor based real estate. I’m here to tell you that the future probably involves a lot of lace. Am I right? Who knows. What I can tell you is this article will be substantially less depressing than most articles that peddle in fortune telling and won’t require you to separate glass and plastic.
Most men, whether they wear panties or not, have a weakness for ruffles. Why? Because ruffles are eye catching, feminine and somehow classical. They also accentuate the booty region, which is alluring for all genders. Combining ruffles with panties creates a sort of uber panty, in much the same way that ‘Underworld’ (that vampire movie with Kate Beckinsale,) made the product of crossing Werewolves and Vampires a sort of uber Vampywolf creature that was inexplicably blue and had most excellent wings. Ruffled panties are just like that, except they are cute and alluring and all kinds of desirable.
So, now that we have discussed and agreed upon the general excellence of ruffled panties (I did say that they accentuate the butt, right? Because they really do, and men who want to look feminine will want to accentuate their butts and hips. Which, as I may have mentioned, ruffled panties are excellent at.) Continue reading
One of the most interesting aspects of the man who wears lingerie is his capacity for stealth. It’s hard to gather relevant statistical facts on this issue, so I’ll just make them up and say that 50% of men who wear lingerie do so secretly.
After all, lingerie is easy to hide. It can be easily hidden under everyday clothing, it can be crumpled up and shoved into wall crevices…
A few men have asked me questions about wig selection, so here is some advice for the chap going off to buy his first female wig. First of all, not all wigs are created equal. A high quality wig can set you back hundreds of dollars, but an equally serviceable cheap one, usually made from synthetic fibers, not human hair can be obtained rather cheaply.
What better time of day to enjoy lingerie than at night, when the world has gone to bed, the land is cloaked in darkness and the realm of dreams takes over, for a few short hours to become reality. If you’re not yet enjoying lingerie as part of your nighttime routine, you can be in very short order.
My recent article, You Men and Your Panties, asked my readers why they were so interested in feminine clothing yet apparently not so interested in make up and hair, which are two very important facets of feminine appearance.
Many men responded that they are interested in make up, but find it difficult to apply, and once applied, difficult to hide. This makes sense, however there are ways around these problems. The first thing you have to remember when applying make up is that well applied make up should make it look as if you are not wearing any at all. It is very possible to wear make up without being obvious about it.
It may surprise you to learn that I’ve been studying you, dear readers, lurking in a lurky fashion and discovering what interests you and what leaves you cold based on how many of you come along to various articles and how many of you are so inspired by the articles that you take time to add your voices to the fray.
Based on these factors, I have determined what seems to interest your average man who wears women’s clothing, and what does not.
