Chus Martinez On Panty FetishismPosted: February 2, 2013
Underwear fetishism is a sexual fetishism relating to undergarments, and refers to the sexual excitement which some people experience from observing or handling certain types of underwear.
Some perverts experience sexual excitement from wearing certain types of underwear. Other people experience sexual excitement when observing or handling certain types of underwear worn by others, or watching somebody putting underwear on, or taking it off. As well as this, other perverts experience sexual excitement from printed or electronic material that depicts underwear.
Panty fetishism is a paraphilia in which one eroticizes panties (or similar styles of underwear). Some individuals have a paraphilia for a specific type of panty. A common fetishism is for panties that show the exposed buttocks (i.e. thongs and g-strings). However, some individuals have the opposite preference, and are attracted to panties that cover the buttocks.
Pantyhose fetishism is a very common fetish involving women’s pantyhose (known as “tights” in the UK). Many pantyhose enthusiasts are also stocking fetishists, the unique silky sheer aspect and allure of both items being the common denominator. Many current day males’ fetishistic preferences for pantyhose over stockings may be related to the fact that pantyhose are, unlike stockings, in virtual direct contact with female genitalia and/or are the preferred hosiery for most women when skirts and dresses are worn.
In very basic simple terms pantyhose fetishism most commonly manifests itself in one or more of the following ways: Wearing of pantyhose by either or both partners during sexual activity. Males wearing pantyhose while alone and sexually aroused. Interacting with pantyhose in any other way or form during sexual activity. Simply observing/admiring and experiencing heightened arousal/interest of females who are wearing pantyhose. Viewing and collection of photography, video or pornography of both professional and amateur models wearing pantyhose.
Young pantyhose fetishists in their formative years sometimes prefer it if the pantyhose they don has already been worn by a specific ‘role model’, be it a family member such as their mother, an aunt or grandmother; or others such as a neighbour, family friend or teacher.
Sub-categories of pantyhose fetishism include: 1. A focus on certain areas of the body while wearing pantyhose, e.g. feet a variation of the very common foot fetishism. 2. Wearing pantyhose with other specific garments, e.g. shoes, boots, or skirts, uniforms that usually include pantyhose (girl at work, secretary, flight stewardess, policewoman, Hooters waitress, girl next door etc.,). 3. Certain styles e.g. sheer-to-waist, opaque, patterned or specific deniers; certain brands or shades. 4. Simply admiring women who wear pantyhose (a mild form of voyeurism). 5. Finding the wearing of pantyhose to be a primarily sensual comforting experience, rather than sexual.
The pantyhose covered foot can be extremely arousing to men who find who are turned on by feet. They may also enjoy their love muscle being rubbed and massaged by nylon clad feet. Many perverts are also aroused by sniffing the soles of feet that have become sweaty and smelly after being encased in pantyhose.
Men who are discovered wearing women’s pantyhose for fetishistic reasons may be labelled as transvestites by their partners, families, workmates and society. The act of purchasing pantyhose, especially the item is being sold by a female shop assistant, can also generate a degree of arousal.
Typically, a man who shares his pantyhose fetish with his partner wants to believe that the fetish generates as much arousal for her as it does for him. He may like his partner to encourage him in his fetish to the extent of her buying him pantyhose to wear and encouraging him to wear them. Sexual activity with his partner will likely be heightened if both parties are wearing pantyhose. Any feeling that his fetish is amusing to his partner or that she is only grudgingly accepting of it is likely to cause the wearer to stop and return to wearing his pantyhose in private.
Stocking fetishism may include other feminine clothing that contributes to enhance the fantasy. Some men find it arousing to collect and wear stockings, panties and suspender belts. In some cases, this is done for the purpose of momentary sexual stimulation. Others wear such a complete combination under a pair of trousers or beneath a business suit on a regular daily basis. Men who regularly wear lingerie and other feminine items, usually refer to sensual, rather than sexual stimulus, with an overall feeling of relaxation and well-being. Some find fishnet stockings more arousing compared to other forms of stockings, for example. Other preferences include fully fashioned (seamed) stockings, seamless stockings, designer stockings, luxury stockings, reinforced heel and toe stockings (RHT), stay-ups, etc.
Some perverts experience sexual excitement from the look or feel of bras. The attraction may be to the look or feel of the material, such as lace, or how it looks on a person. Some people get excitement from removing a bra. Other perverts experience sexual excitement from the look or feel of articles made of silk or satin fabric. Such interest is usually directed towards the person wearing silk or satin, but it can also be directed towards the garment itself, or to the feel of the garment when worn. The attraction can be to the physical properties of the garment, such as softness, smoothness, drape and shine, and to its association with elegance, glamour, romance and opulence.
