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.

The Perfect Bra For Men?

If you were thinking about the perfect bra for a man, what would your criteria be? Would the bra need to be pretty and feminine with unique colors? Would it have to incorporate a little lace? Would it have to have shallow cups which allow it to fit a man’s chest so much better than other women’s bras? Well men, I think I have found a bra that many of you are going to absolutely love! (And best of all, it even comes from a fearsomely masculine sounding designer, ‘Diesel’.)

Molded, contour, underwire cups feature graduated padding for modesty and maximum cleavage. Bra is made of soft, stretch microfiber and has a plunge front, so you can wear your lower-cut fashions.

Pretty Floral Skirts For Men

pretty floral skirtFloral prints, I’ve talked about them at length before, noting their vintage charm, their ye olde appeal and their undeniable association with femininity. Floral print skirts can work for men just as well as they do for women, and come in a wide range of styles and designs.

You Write He Wears Panties

It’s often been remarked, and I quite agree, that it is a wee bit silly having a woman writing He Wears Panties solely. Where are your voices? How can I say you are being quiet if you do not have a chance to voice them? Well, here’s your chance! You can now register on the sidebar at the right. Registering will make you a contributor, and you will be able to post your own articles on He Wears Panties.

Write about what ever you want! Say what you really think, share your thoughts, experiences, joys and fears with the world. If you don’t agree with what I’ve said, post a counter argument.  I won’t moderate anything unless it is disrespectful, obscene or horrifically written (text speak and ‘u’ ‘ur’ is grounds for instant deletion, lesser offenses will simply be edited out.)

I will still write here of course, but I want there to be the opportunity for greater collaboration. Let’s see what happens, shall we?

Gentlemen, the floor is yours…

Men, It’s Not A Big Deal If You Wear A Dress

man_dressSo we’re back here again, in a situation where I’ve written something which tells men who wear women’s clothing to stop hiding mutely in dark corners and a few men reply to me telling me I don’t understand how horrible it is to be a man who wears women’s clothing and how their family’s lives would be ruined by the public revelation.

Tarantino Wears High Heels, Men Wear High Heels

tarantino heelsHollywood director Quentin Tarantino has made it clear that it’s okay for a man to wear high heels by donning a pair and scowling at the camera in a “I’m the Anti-Christ. You got me in a vendetta kind of mood. You tell the angels in heaven you never seen evil so singularly personified as you did in the face of the man who killed you,” sort of way. Very few people laugh at a man’s heels when he looks like that.

Formal Skirts For Men

silk formal skirtI know I said I wasn’t going to be putting these articles on Hub Pages anymore, however though I won’t be writing any lingerie articles there anymore (largely thanks to some puritan twit at Google deciding that panties are adult material, but more on that at a later date,) I will still be writing about feminine men’s fashion. This is one of those articles, and I would be remiss if I did not share it with my readers here.

When it comes to formal attire, men get the short fashion stick in abundance. The only truly acceptable formal attire for men is a penguin style tuxedo. The most we trust men with fashion choices in the formal world is allowing them to occasionally don a coat with a Chinese collar, or picking between a blue or red cummerbund.

Naughty, Naughty Men Who Wear Lingerie

Well I am glad one of you spoke up for the lot of you ;) I received a very sweet email regarding my post (aka: thinly veiled lecture) on men wearing women’s lingerie and keeping silent about it. The writer felt that my scenario of waking up to a world where it was accepted that men wore women’s things would ruin the experience of wearing lingerie and women’s clothing entirely. He was quite right, and I had to remind myself that for many men:

It’s the taboo, stupid!

So please, continue to enjoy your surreptitious sneaking around in lingerie and the fun it brings. Who am I to advocate the end of a practice that brings joy and thrills to so many men. :)

EDIT:

I now see two things, one, that some people have used the comments, which is super, and two, that the comments system I put on is entirely broken and posts all comments ever made on every post. Madness. Utter madness I say!

Cute Lace Embroidered Boyshort Panties

Are these not some of the most darling boyshort panties you ever saw? From Bare Necessities, the Elomi Jasmine panties caught my eye, and I thought they might perhaps catch yours too. Made entirely of embroidered lace (heaven, anyone?) these panties could almost be passed off as men’s shorts, if it weren’t for their hyper feminine charms.  Still, I suppose you could explain them away as being men’s lingerie from Europe – those continentals do crazy things.  (Just click the image to have a better look.)

Oh, and did I forget to mention? These are plus size panties, which means they’ll fit larger lads perfectly.

Are Men Who Wear Women’s Clothing Mute?

Men who wear women’s clothing have been marginalized for a long time. Why? Perhaps it is because for many men the behavior is based on purely fetishistic drives which demand privacy. Perhaps it is because for a long time, homosexual behavior was also marginalized and even criminalized and men feared being misidentified as gay. Perhaps it is because men with the drive to wear women’s clothing sometimes fear being ostracized by those they know and love.

There are many reasons to stay quiet, but they all cost men who wear women’s clothing deeply. Those who enjoy lingerie and panties as a fetish tend to be more open and vocal about it than those who simply enjoy women’s clothing and want to incorporate it into their everyday lives. This has left public perception of men who wear lingerie and women’s clothing as being that of a pack of oversexed perverts.

Even on this blog, even on this site where men are guaranteed to find acceptance and camaraderie, most of you stay silent. As evidenced when I enabled some comments features, no-one had anything to say at all, save for one lone little deviant (and I say that with affection,) who wanted the man in the bikini to show off his butt.

If you will not speak for yourselves, who will speak for you? If you will not speak for yourselves, how can you expect the status quo to change? You don’t need to go marching down the high street in your prettiest pink lingerie and high heels, but if the phenomenon of men’s fashion equality is to have any traction in the world at all, you will need to learn to speak up as a group, and not just on shady (or not so shady) panty fetish sites on the web but in your everyday lives.

Things change because people brave the uncomfortable days and years of being ‘different’, only to wake up one day and find that they are not different any more, they are simply one of the many. Some of you do a brilliant job of being who you are out in the world, some of you are not afraid to live your lives as you wish to live them, some of you are true inspirations to all. But for every man who proudly wears what he wants to, hundreds more quietly skulk about in hiding. Too few of you raise your voices. You are many, yet you hide in the cracks and crevices of cyberspace where nothing can and nothing will change.

If you want to see the day come where it is accepted as common knowledge that men can wear whatever they want, just as women currently can, then you need to quit hiding and speak up.

He Dances On Video Wearing Lingerie (And A Mask)

(If someone doesn’t at least have something to say about this, then I am so dropping the comments again ;) Over four thousand visitors a day and not one of you has anything to say? Tsk tsk. Use it or lose it, my dears.)

UPDATE: *Sigh* Really? One person manages to double post “you need to show your butt?” Seriously? This is why we can’t have nice things like comments on this blog.

You won’t find any further comment facilities here. Feel free to visit the forums if you are a more loquacious gentleman.

Want To Meet Other Men Who Wear Lingerie?

I noticed that there were several posts on the forums made by men who wanted to meet other men who cross dress and wear women’s lingerie. They were rather lost in amongst the other categories, so there is now a totally separate forum for those men who wish to meet other men who wear lingerie for friendship, support or possibly more.
