All You Need to Know about the Pantyhose Fetish

Man Pulling Woman in Garters to Him

When I was a young teen, I came across a strange book at a yard sale. It showed really tacky and artsy softcore shots of women in pantyhose.

Elmer Batters, a pioneering fetish photographer, made his name focusing on women’s feet in pantyhose. His pictures were of toes spread under nylons or feet positioned for a back view—always under pantyhose—or a shoe slipping off.

Now, I don’t know many women who love wearing nylons. They make my thighs clammy and ride down my waist or thighs. They twist and slide around so the seams wrap around the leg and pinch. They don’t breathe. They “run” at the slightest snag!

I always prefer to get away with worn jeans, dreading events that require pantyhose decorum.

Still, I know who does like pantyhose. Men. A lot of men.

As far as fetishes go, nylon love is  pretty tame. We all know that most men love the various undergarments worn by women. But it’s also one of the strongest and most widespread kinks!

Whether you want to ejaculate all over my pantyhose-covered thighs or wear them yourself, here are some interesting tidbits about this fetish.

Fascinating Facts about the Panthose Fetish

It’s a New(ish) Fetish

Some fetishes and kinks have deep evolutionary roots, or a long and colorful history. For example, rape fantasies and group sex and exhibitionism have all shown up in many cultures and eras, and can be traced back to the mating dynamics of our dawn.

But a fetish can’t exist without its source, and sheer tights are brand new. Nylon was invented in 1938.

Prior to this, showgirls and courtesans wore silk stockings, as did the liberated women in The Great Gatsby, set in the ’20s when hemlines rose above the ground. But the popular nylon pantyhose only hit the market in 1959.

It Wasn’t always Pantyhose. 

The first name for pantyhose was Panti-Legs. The product was a combination of stockings and panties.

Why Men are Horny for Hosiery

A simple explanation for this one is what psychologists call “imprinting.” That just means that during early episodes of sexual excitement, the object or experience present becomes imprinted on the psyche.

It’s no big shocker that young boys experience their first arousals to teachers, to mother, and to babysitters. And in a certain era, most of these women were wearing pantyhose.

Hose Perfects Female Legs

In addition to maintaining a simple, discreet barrier between bare legs and the world,  pantyhose creates the illusion of flawlessness. This is how such uncomfortable garments become popular! Scars, stubble, veins, and cellulite is magically airbrushed to a single tone, and flesh appears firmer.

Variety Is the Spice of  the Pantyhose Fetish

How pantyhose fetishism is played out is surprisingly varied. Some men get off while fantasizing about women wearing pantyhose. For others, cross-dressing, and even being humiliated while wearing them is a big turn on.

Some guys just love the sensation of nylon against their cock and want to rub themselves against the fabric.

Others love the sight of spread pussy partially veiled, or the glimpse of dark pubic hair underneath shrouding the ultimate goal.

For a foot fetishist, it’s mostly to do with a woman’s tender tootsies bound inside the hose.

Others  like to rip the crotch out and dine in paradise through the opening. Bon appétit!
