Are Men In Lingerie Perverted?

Updated on November 13, 2010

You Want To Wear Panties? Naughty Boy!

When the issue of men wearing lingerie is discussed, there are two often heard counterpoints, or slurs that are thrown in the direction of such men. One of these is that the man in questions must be gay. This issue has been addressed more fully in another article, but suffice to say, most men who wear women's lingerie are straight men. Most cross dressers in fact, tend to be straight. When the gay objection is dismissed as being untrue, doubters and haters tend to fall back on the 'perverted' argument.

It's just wrong they say. Wrong for a man to wear, or perhaps to even think about wearing women's lingerie. Let's think about that statement for a moment. Though it might be tempting to dismiss such accusations out of hand for being facile and ignorant, I believe it is worth looking at this issue as it is one that many men cite as the reason for holding back from wearing women's lingerie, or the reason that they did hold back for so long.

Is it perverted for men to wear lingerie? We can explore this issue, by looking at the flip side. Is it wrong for a woman to wear men's underwear? Or outerwear for that matter? Clearly this is not a widely held perception in Western society. In fact, the sight of a woman in an oversized T Shirt and men's boxer shorts has become mainstream, cute even. And why not? Women often cite that they enjoy wearing men's boxers due to the comfort factor. At the all girl school I attended, men's boxers became a popular fad for a while, every girl owned at least one pair. I doubt a single reader is currently recoiling in disgust at having read that, yet if I related a story of a boy's school where all the boys took to wearing lace panties, the reaction would most likely be notably different.

The fact is that there is an unequal and unfair taboo in our Western society when it comes to men expressing anything remotely feminine. It is considered almost unnatural. How strange that we should have accepted the movement of women into more masculine roles and modes of dress, but that we still so staunchly resist the reverse.

Of course, perhaps we should not complain too loudly about this fact. For many men, breaking the taboo is exactly what makes wearing women's lingerie so naughty and pleasurable. In fact, one could say that every person staunchly clinging to a thought system that leads them to find the notion of men wearing panties to be perverted, actually adds a little to the forbidden, naughty nature of the act itself.

Clearly there is nothing perverted about men wearing women's lingerie. The millions of men around the world who like to wear women's lingerie speak by their sheer volume. This is not an unnatural desire. This is a desire driven (for most) by tactile pleasure first and foremost, and a naughty thrill secondly. Wearing women's lingerie is an activity that certainly hurts no-one, and adds spice and vigor to the sex and every day lives of many men and women on a daily basis.

      To me personally clothes are clothes and should never be labeled for men only or for women only. If you find you prefer and like the benefits of a certain article of clothing if your a man or women you should wear the clothing and not worry about what society thinks. As a man for myself I found wearing a vintage girdles everyday very beneficial. I happen to have a mild case of scolosis plus weak stomach mucles with poor posture and lower back pains. I went to a professional corsetiere for a fitting and girdle trainng. She fit me in a Rago 6210 girdle, which is a very firm vintage style long legged high waisted boned and zippered panty girdle. Once the Corsetiere had me put on the girdle and stand up I was amazed how great I felt being all well encased support it felt great, my posture was 100 perecent improved, my clothes fit better, no more lower back pains, and my stomach was firmly and well supported. I came to the conclusion it is not right for clothes to be labeled per sex I to just like women can also benefits from being girdled everyday. A girdle back during the Golden Age of Girdles 40ties, 50ties, and 60ties was a women best kept secret and I can see why, you really do feel great when daily girdled, with much more energy and confidence, it is rather amazing the benefits from being daily girdled. I am convienced that after wearing a girdle daily that women today really make a major mistake not wearing a girdle, they will wear a bra, but a bra and a girdle together and actually compliment each other. In my case I do not need a bra, but there are some men that do, but I sure need a girdle and for good reason.

      There are also health benefits that came from a research done at Cornell Unversity concerning health benefits of foundation wear back in the 1958 which actually applies to today:

      No it is not wrong for a man to wear woman's lingerie I have been wearing it for several years and only twice did I have any one say anything negative about it. To me they are more comfortable than some of the men's clothing. If you wear the things properly no one can tell if you have them on. Some of the names given to us because we do wear them are wrong, and the people that come up with them are just closed minded people and just ignore them. Enjoy what you want,if it is comfortable then it's good. The ladies wear what they wont and feel comfortable in so why can'y we?

      For a male to wear what is labeled as "Women's Clothing" is only that society lables the clothing. Just because a male happens to like to wear a girdle panty hose tight pencil skirt doesn't make him gay. If a male happens to be comfortable wearing girdle, panty hose, tight skirt just like if a woman likes to wear pants tie etc there really is nothing wrong with that and that does not make you gay cd or tv or anything else that society wants to label you.

      I personally found that a girdle panty hose happen to be very comfortable and to me has always been a "Woman's Best Kept Secret".

      The first pair of panties I wore were my sister's when I was 11. All throughout my teens I wore lingerie and secretly wore dresses. When I went to college I slept in nightgowns. Once one of my room mates found some lingerie and a dress of mine. He wrote in very small letters on our desk that his roommate was a queer. I was mortified but very excited. Not too long after that I had my first sexual experience with a man. I fantasized myself as a woman making love to a man. For many years after that I dressed as femininely as possible and satisfied men, beliving I was their "girl". After some time, I did not care if people calle dme a queer, gay or worse. I became a drag queen and had several boyfriends. Eventually after moving out of town due to work, I gravitated away from my "gay" life. I began dating a woman who owned a dress shop where I bought many of my dresses. Eventually she and I satisfied men together. I continued to interject men into our relationship until she tired of it. She gave me an ultimatum and I complied. I loved my female personna and my clothes but as I have grown older I have all but quit dressing. I still fantasize about men and looking like a sexy woman for them.

      Delighted to say that i also wear lingerie every day and have been for 25 years nothing wrong with it and i enjoy it very much. Oh by the way nothing will stop me from enjoying doing it. One thing puzzles me is why do Women complain about the Bra being uncomfortable i have been wearing one for about 25 years and find it one of the most comfortable garments that i have ever worn.

      I have been wearing girdles about every day for 3 years. Yes it does take a some getting use to. Interesting as I did some reserch into both males and females wearing girdles I found that girdles really do not have any gender, it is whatever you are comfortable in.

      I found once I was fitted and became use to the support that a firm girdle offers I now do not wear a girdle when going out but even when I just relax around the house.

      As a male as I have gotten older I now have a small stomach, even though I exercise daily, once my stomach became use to the support a girdle offers it feels really great to let the girdle just hold and support me, I like what it does for my posture and I feel much more energy and confidence.

      A girdle to me has always been in the past "A Woman's Best Kept Secret", and males are beginning to learn about this secret.

      Paul, I strongly suggest to wax. I do this in a monthly base. After a while you get accustomed. The sensation and pleasure afterwards one cannot describe.

      Compared razing it is more secure.

      It's all about comfort and how your clothes feel. Appearance, visual appeal and sensuousness are bonuses.

      I have been enjoying silky and lacy lingerie nearly everyday for nearly ten years. I wish I had worn these regularly much earlier. When I wear jeans, the pleasure of pettipants is wonderful. And a nylon camisole helps my shirts feel more comfortable. Even a short full slip feels better on very cool days.

      I am a male who has for 3 years been wearing a long legged high waisted boned and zippered panty girdle every day. As I became older I was getting a small stomach plus a mild case of scolosis plus lower back pains. I went to a "Male Friendly Corsetier" who fit me in a girdle plus did some consulting. I am convinced that wearing a girdle does not have any gender (male or female), society has just labeled a girdle is for women only, this not true a girdle should be actually worn by everybody.

      I found to my pleasant surprise once I became use to wearing a girdle that I had a dramatic increase in energy and confidence, I have never felt so great, I like how I look and feel when girdled. I was really amazed.

      It does take some getting use to and the key is to relax your stomach muscles and let the girdle just hold and support you, you will be pleasantly surprised how great you will feel.

      What I have discovered is that there are some serious health benefits to daily being girdled, a girdle couteracts the negatives effects of standing erect, and will support your internal organs, hold both your organs and you muscles in their natural position. Wearing a girdle daily also helps curb your diet and helps you eat smaller portions.

      To me a girdle has been a "Woman's Best Kept Secret" and now men are starting to discover that secret.

      If you decide to wear a girdle it is very important at least for the first time to find a professional corsetier to help fit you and consult you as to the right kind of make and model girdle, how to put on a girdle. There is lots more to it wearing a girdle and it does take some education. The benefits are most definitly there.

      We are talking of two different issues.

      I have learnt that more an more men use mantyhoses, due to confort it gives. This is independent whether you are a female or male. I would recommend to have a look in the net for this point.

      In respect to your point, I think it is another issue (not my main is here), which is the focus on the last mile. This naturally is ok for me too for [for the obvious reasons], since is what makes our lifes more happy and more healthy (Dr. Ozz recommmends sex exactly so your body is more sound)

      To each his own, but for me a man's virility is what gets and keeps my attention. It isn't a matter a judging what a person wants to do on their own time--their choice, but for me the sex appeal of a guy in women's lingerie is non-existent.

      Thanks for all your feedbacks. I am 51. When I was in my teens I went to school with my mother's corset and silk stockings and found the feeling great, despite risky, but highly sexy. I was more or less caught by my mother, that is she knew, but never told. One understands...

      The fact is that all these years I have always thought I was gay, so I never tried this again. One advantage of the net is that you may order online and get your goods without anybody knowing. I told my wife of my interests and she was very supportive, even we has help us a lot in our relationship.

      But now checking out this hub it has been so stimulating and assuring that many other men have the same interest, feel comfortable using "women's" lingerie, that it has relaxed and increase my interest.

      Thanks to all, both men and women, for your feedback and encourage

      Nylon and satin panties are just way more comfortable then the traditional cotton mens underwear. I have been wearing womens panties 24/7 for almost 30yrs. Were them at the gym to the doctors. No lace just all nylon or satin. I know sometimes others guys are curious but never ask. I am 100% straight. In all my relationships my other half girlfriend or wife liked it and in some cases think it is cool and makes for better sex.

      I had lots of sisters at home back in the 50's and it seemed they lived in their silky slips and nighties, and that had a BIG impact on my adolescent fescination with feminine apparel. My mom also had some beautiful satin nightgowns which, I confess, I "borrowed" along with my sisters' lingerie. It wasn't that I wanted to be female, just that the tactile feel was oh so very pleasurable.

      Been maried 40 years now, and my wife and our four kids are aware that I still like wearing silky satin clothing and that I'd NEVER embarass them by doing so publicly. But, in the privacy of our bedroom, whatever facilitates intimacy is encouraged.

      My wife calls me a closet "lipstick" lesbian as I like us both to be as feminine as we can. Outside the bedroom I'm as masculine as can be, so I guess I've got two personas. As Matt previously posted, I too would never need to cheat on my wife as, indeed, the "other woman" has been within me most of my life.

      Trish: I hope you check back. What kind of comfort do you want from your underwear? A lot of men ar wiseing up that traditional designed-for-male briefs and boxers are too thick, bulky and UN-comfortable. Why shouldn't men enjoy the comfort of panties? It may be different from the predominant practice but it is not wrong any more than females wearing jeans, bib overalls, coveralls, sweatshirts, tanktops, boots, baseball caps, etc.

      Society doesn't allow or like this because not everyone is open minded about this.

      Personally, I've been wearing a bra since high school because of the size of my chest (wear 44c). Some men wear bra's not for sex/sentuality but because makes the chest feel better (research Gynecomastia). I wear my bra everyday w/out anyone noticing and only wear plain tshirts. My wife knows and is ok so I don't have to wory about that. I prefer women's underwear over mens because mens just really don't feel good at all. I buy my bras/underwear from Lane Bryant and have never had a prob from anyone there helping me out w/ sizing.

      I do agree that society is very biased that women can wear ANYTHING they want, yet men are "not allowed" to wear womens clothing. I like the tshirt bra, but cannot wear them due to being molded cups -cant exactally hide them, but if society (and my inlaws lol) were more excepting, then wouldn't worry about it as much :) I say good luck to anyone that wears what they want or makes them feel good. If its not hurtting anyone... then why should it make a difference?

      I buy my panties from Victoria Secret, on line. My bras i buy at kohls, in store. I love the rush of energy i first get nervous when i go in but after a few minutes at the Bra rack it seems to fade. Clothes are the hardest part, Pants at Target for sure! Cheap and the Sonoma fit is great. I have a 34 waist jeans so i buy womens 10. Dress's are the hard part because of the size of the upper body. Girls is small upper bone and bigger at the hips, when the fellas have the opposite, big at the top and slimmer at the hip. Summer dresses work well and feel great. Denim skirts work great too, and are exceptable in public. wear the Mini Skirt or you will look as if you are "testing the grounds" to say. A nice Button shirt with sleeves rolled half way up is nice. and put on some Eye Liner on the inside of your lower eye lids. you can lean this one on the internet. Buy some Obsession perfume (womens) at Sears and wear it. even the womon love the smell. you will do fine. Go For It!!

      Perversion ?? Women have been openly crossdressing for decades !!! Slacks, suits, boxers, shirts, all clothing designed for the " man " at the time. Mens clothing is now a uni-sex fashion worn all over the world. Men's bikini underwear is labeled MEN, but have the exact same cut and style as the womens. Guys just don't have the sexy lacy and soft silky stuff that makes a person feel good about them selves. That goes the same for bra's and nylons. I'll wear these at home, sometimes the wifes Slip as well. I just imagine us being intimate in our ligerie items and the items feel even better on me. But when she's home I'll keep it to panties only which she accepts. I really am looking forward to the day / evening when she will want me in lingerie items that make us both feel good. Until the I wear her stuff, she knows it but really doesn't want to see it all - yet.

      Hi, I am a man that wears lingerie. I wear girls underwear and bras all the time. I feel there is nothing "perverted" about it. I know some people will think that. Guess what, I don't even care. It is personal if men want to wear bras and girls panties. Besides, there are girls that wear mens clothing, I don't even care. Those girls that do, have at it, it is personal choice for them just like some men like me like wearing girls underwear/panties and bras.

      Actually, what most people don't realize, for retailers, its easier for them to classify Women's department, and Men's Department, rather than making a huge Unisex department.

      Retailers most often, with open arms, welcome any type of sales, regardless of what the customer's belief system is.

      A sale is a sale...once you walk out their door with your purchase in hand, they are happy.

      Now when consumers walk into a department store, they see that there is a distinct segregation of Men's and Womens...and then childrens. That sets a lightbulb off in their heads thinking that men's stuff is for men only, and women's stuff is for women only.

      Its this same type of segregation that lead to Martin Luther King's famous speech about White and Black coexisting.

      They see this imaginary line, and think that's the natural way of things, but don't realize that anything in the store is up for grabs, regardless of gender.

      And just to note, I have been wearing thigh high stockings for over 10 years, and still very much love women.

      I am a man that enjoys wearing Womens panties both because of the way they look and the way they feel. I maintain a strict workout routine and remove all hair from the neck down. What this leaves is a firm smooth body that should not be covered by boxer shorts but instead looks good with just a small amount of coverage.

      Most men who wear lingerie, stockings and girdles started at a young age. And in most cases they never gave up this habit. Isn´t it interesting that once you have discovered the wunderfull world of women clothes it becomes part of your daily life? And the desire to wear womens clothes increases. I started decades ago with my mothers stockings and obg. First it was the feeling of stockings on my legs. Then I realised how much I liked to be in a girdle. Years later this fascination is still there. I love the support a girdle gives me. Then out of curiosity I tried a bra. Fantastic. These days I wear a bra and girdle with stockings under my male clothes daily. And I love to fill my cups so I feel the weight and bounce of my boobs. The next step was trying a skirt. I feel so comfortable wearing a skirt. I don´t understand why most women wear trousers these days. What a pity that I can´t go to work wearing skirt and stockings. But as a man in a skirt you get a lot of curious looks. The first thought seems always to be this man is gay. I don´t know where this misunderstanding comes from. It is ok for a woman to show her string and most parts of her naked belly. But a man wearing a skirt breaks a barrier. It is not socially acceptable. What is so wrong wearing a skirt and stockings as a man. Maybe this would change if more man would show the courage to present themselves that way.

      I agree that women have been liberated and men have a social expectation placed upon them. I for one do wear panties 24/7 and there have been times I have wished that it were permisable for a guy to wear a skirt without social stigmas. I think that there are a lot of khaki and blue jean skirts with some length to them that appear to be for men and they look like they would be very comfortable especially on a hot summer day. I do know the freedom of wearing knee length and floor length nylon and polyester night shirts in the evening while lounging around and also wearing them to bed and it is great!

      I don´t know how many men love wearing lingerie and stockings. As a boy one day I couldn´t resist any longer and tried my moms stockings and girdle. I did it once and was hooked for life. Of course there were days I felt guilty or supposed that there was something wrong with me. This is a matter of the past now. For more than 20 years I´m wearing panties, girdles and stockings. And feel simply very well i it. There is no reason why a man in stockings is perverted or what ever. And today I´m happy about the support I get from my wife. For both of us it is perfectly normal to wear girdles and nice lingerie. I know, a lot of women have problems with the thought of their men in lingerie. But if a guy wears lingerie, he is the same person after all. And a good fitting girdle does the same for a man as for a women. It helps to support one´s shape. Nothing wrong with it.

      nylon panties 9 years ago

      I have been wearing nylon bikini panties for over 17 years and as a "baby-boomer", I can recall as a youngster how my mom & sisters panties had a double layer of nylon in the crotch area. Which is one of the feelings that I enjoyed the most. Up to this day, as soon as I get my new panties home, the first I do is to remove the cotton fabrick from the crotch area. I have ALWAYS worn panties under my street clothes at my regular job as well as during my military obligation.

      I have been wearing panties for about 50 years now, and I enjoy it very much. I am not gay at all. Some day men wearing panties, etc. will become accepted, but for now, I guess we have to pretty much keep it a secret.

      all you have to do is have the sexy panty, say mens on it. yes there are more and more sexy mens underware available. but still haven't found any in nylon or silky materials. most largely sold underware in the mens department are cotton or spandex....nothing in nylon, or smooth shiny type. I doesn't make you gay to wear womans underware, its just a choice....

      Hi,

      I love wearing panties, bras and nylons, however that is about as far as I would like to go in public, however I like wearing sexy lady things in private....I like women and would like to hear... what they think of men like me I value their opinion and I would very much like your honest opinion.

      Thank you, Teri

      THANX for sharing

      I love my panties and lingerie ..have worn privately for yrs and have worn them to work.One day I wore a beige half slip to work with pink panties. My female boss wore a split skirt that day and I noticed she wore a beige slip with same laced seam as mine.Too Funnny.

      I wonder if she shops at the same place.

      I love my panties and bras. Would love my bras even more if I had larger breasts, cuz I love those too. I get a charge out of wearing them to work, on the job site, and no one knows any different. It pays to be discreet, so as not to bring on any macho b.s. drama from the "good ol' boys club"... Either way, I like how I look in women's underthings, I like how they feel, and with respect to boxers or briefs, I can only say "who knows", I don't own any....

      Amen! Women's lingerie is just damn sexzy period. And much more varied and interesting. I will admit to enjoying crossdressing at home and find it a turn on. Been "playing" with womens things since I was 8 or 9 and don't think I could ever stop. Women also have much greater variety in clothes and color, and wearing makeup.

      It's only since I've been playing with more complete outfits have I discovered the POWER that women can possess in enhancing their (sexual) appearance and appeal. They have many more options than men do. Could be an interesting subjecta for a blog???

      What does it matter, most men cant become a woman even if they want to, so why not accept them as female anyway, because that's what they crave.

      Hi trish, thanks for sharing your story, and sorry to hear about your divorce. Not all men who wear lingerie end up as cross dressers however, or want to be women. This will also be a great topic for the blog, and we will see what men have to say. How do you tell the difference between a man who wears lingerie, and a man who wants to be a full blown cross dresser and/or a woman?

      i agree with satin jenni , whatever floats your boat , i don't see mself as perverted , i am a very loving person in my own right , i love the feel of lingerei and i do look sexy in front of the mirror as i am not overweight and consider myself good looking , it wouldn't matter if i was overweight or considered unattractive , but that is not the issue , i like and get turned on wearing womans , ive seen many men in sexy lingerei on the net and there is many of us out there so i reckon it is very common for guys to be attracted to this fetish

      Double standards are definitely at play in society. I however have chosen to ignore these false expectations of others and I wear that which pleases me. Don't look for me in a dress and heels at the office anytime soon(although I own both items a few times over).

      I believe societal attitudes are changing. Thanks to the Internet and forums such as this one, a guy in a dress or lingerie for that matter is just not as shocking as it once was. Most people are adopting a position of indifference, "hey if it floats your boat...go for it"

      Personally, I think I will :)

      It is very interesting how women have been somewhat 'liberated' from having to dress in solely feminine garments, whereas men remain to all intents and purposes trapped in their male attire. I could wear a suit and and tie to work and not get funny looks, but if a man showed up in a dress.. well... somehow I think he might have some problems at the office that day :)

      I think it is just a matter of taste whether a man wears masculine or feminine undergarments. You are right, some women wear boxers and other masculine-type pants... so why not?

      Laughing at your analogy of the school in which the boys have taken to wearing panties. All I can think of is .... I want to go, well atleast when I was in high school I would have wanted to transfer there...how cool!
