Balenciaga designs at Paris Fashion Week set some legwear trends

July 11, 2017 under Runway

All the lovers of tight pants are just going to love this. Balenciaga, a French designer label, put out some models on the runway wearing tight shoe pants (as the tights are actually attached to the shoes) and spandex.

Some writers refer to these designs as fetishistic because of the tightness of the garments. It does make sense, especially by having the shoes made out of the same shade and fabric as the pants, an illusion of super long legs is created.

I read up a little bit on the founder of this almost a 100 year old label. Cristobal Balenciaga started out nicely, but then had to close his boutiques because of war. Obviously this didn’t stop him from making a come back. Just think about it for a minute, whatever obstacles our modern entrepreneurs are faced with are nothing like what he had. I guess that those who are meant to survive somehow will, no matter what walls keep them out.

Pierre Molinier’s work at an Art Exhibit at PhotoEspaña 2017 in Madrid

June 15, 2017 under Art

fetish, Madrid, artist, photographyPhotoEspaña, Círculo de Bellas Artes, hosting an art exhibition of many artists, including the French photographer and painter, Pierre Molinier, who was an avid black stockings fetishist and a transvestite.

This exhibit takes place in Madrid from May 31st to August 27th, 2017.

Is anyone currently in Spain now? Can you visit and tell me what it was like? I wrote about him earlier, his work is for sure a bit of a taboo, don’t go with your children.

There is a lot of explicit nudity and maybe even violence from what I’ve read about the artist. This would be an 18+ exhibit.This French artist was considered completely shameless, or perhaps just way too progressive for his era.

Crystal Renn in Pantyhose and Stockings

Perhaps this model grabs my attention for the only reason that she poses in pantyhose and stockings. Otherwise, I find her quite unbalanced in her looks and in her ways.

Crystal Renn used to be a skinny model with eating disorders, then she wanted to get healthy and gained enough weight to be plus size. Later she went back to being skinny again. Now she is somewhere in between.

She did a provocative domatrix fetish-oriented photoshoot in Falke pantyhose. Pantyhose part attracts me, violence – not at all.

Taboo Show in Vancouver

January 31, 2014 under News

This weekend I attended Vancouver’s Taboo show and got to take some photos of people in tights and stockings.

The photo below is of my legs in Apriel tights by Fiore and another girl in cross-patterned tights.  I was so excited that I was literally screaming.  Her boyfriend took a photo of us posing together and she even instructed him on how to take a decent shot to show off the legs.  Don’t we look like pantyhose sisters?  She’s in purple, I’m in pink!  We are a team!

I asked this model to take a photo of her stockings and panties.  She looked so cute in this costume outfit!

This is more of a punk girl look, there were plenty of those at the show.  Not my style, but I enjoyed seeing such a fashion statement.

I couldn’t resist to take a photo of these Gladiator Boots, or whatever they are called.  I personally don’t wear such styles, but I thought it looked very nice on this person because of her neat manicure.  Of course, I asked for permission.

I saw this girl wearing these sheer patterned pantyhose and I asked her if I could take a photo of her legs for my blog.  She was quite nice about it and even waited for me to go grab my camera.

At the show there was a huge line up to take photos and get autographs from Alexis Texas and Ron Jeremy.  I managed to take a semi-decent shot of them posing with a fan, but I didn’t have the time to wait for such a long line up.  Alexis looked great, but Ron Jeremy came in wearing green crocks – seriously, couldn’t he dress up a little bit more?

I couldn’t resist to take a photo of these sparkly shoes.  There was a group of Latin American girls all dressed up in leggings and pantyhose, walking as a group and singing songs in Spanish.  I asked one of them to pose for a photo and she right away informed me that she just bought these shoes at a great price.

I saw this couple and asked them if I could get a photo of the stockings.  They were so excited and the boyfriend said to me – “you should get a shot of her frilly panties too!” and pulled up the girl’s skirt.  She was totally cool with that and enjoyed the attention.

This woman posed for this amazing photo!  She was one of the exhibitors for the fetish booth and she was wearing Sunita backseam hold ups by Fiore.

I can’t remember for sure, but I think this was a sexy tranny wearing these white stockings imitation tights at the show.  I asked for permission to take a photo.

At some point I decided to experiment with the layering look – I pulled a garter belt over my pantyhose and attacked backseam stockings.  Some people actually told me that this way it emphasized the stockings much more than if I would not have anything under.

This lady came by with her “Spank Me” pantyhose and I couldn’t resist to take a photo with her.  So far not a single woman refused to have her fabulous legs photographed.

I love these “Spank Me Tights”!  This woman came with her husband (or maybe boyfriend) looking so glamorous.

In this  photo you can see my legs in Wolford Neon 40 beside a Ferrari car.  I wore these because they look so good, but at the same time cover the leg well and are very resistant.

My legs in Apriel tights by Fiore – aren’t those awesome?  I was wearing these mock stocking pantyhose and got plenty of comments from people.

This is my first time attending and I am thrilled with the atmosphere.  People are totally open-minded,walking around in latex, stockings, underwear. If you get a chance to attend, I totally recommend it!

Shoe Fetish Dating Disaster Episode

September 4, 2013 under What to Avoid
ekaterina upset about foot fetish boyfriend

screen shot from the show

Recently I was watching a show where this beautiful 20 year old woman said that she is still a virgin because she just can’t find a normal boyfriend and she shared a laughable experience about a shoe fetish disaster.  I thought to share this with you and see what you think.

Turns out that one of her dates after their first outing stopped the car 200 meters from her residence when driving her home and asked her if she would take off her shoe.  It was a strange request for her, but she took it with humour and handed him one of her heels.

To her surprise and shock her date started kissing her shoe in front of her.  Imagine, he hasn’t even kissed her, but he already went for the shoe.  She realized that this man is some serious fetishist and quickly jumped out of the car wearing only one heel.

Obviously, since she would not go far in one shoe, she took it off and threw it back in the car, telling him that this is a bonus for him and walked the rest of the distance to her building barefoot.

Would you say that such a shoe fetish act is inappropriate on a first date?  I think so personally because I believe that at least the girl would deserve to get a kiss first rather than have her shoes get it ahead of her.  Perhaps he would even last long enough in the relationship to find out that this young lady prides herself on having 30 pairs of shoes at home.

Fetish and Dating advice from Juicy Life

April 24, 2012 under Love

I had a pleasure to talk about dating with a sexual health educator, Jane Langton, from a Juicy Life.  She is a friendly person with a modern outlook on sexuality.  I decided to ask her about common questions that I get through this blog.

Since this blog is about hosiery, we get a lot of male visitors who have a fetish for pantyhose or stockings and are sometimes afraid to admit to it when they start dating.

Due to the nature of the garment, most of hosiery fetishists are male, but advice given in this article is applicable to any gender.

 

When is it best to tell the partner about your sexual preferences and fetishes, right away or when there is already a deep emotional attachment?  Sometimes I get people telling me that their wife does not want to share their sexual preferences and that causes a lot of tension in the family.

 Jane’s Answer:

It is more challenging to introduce something that is considered by some as kinky later on in the relationship.  We don’t always have the courage to tell our partner who we really are, so we open up later. 

Don’t be upset if the partner is not comfortable with this new addition to your repertoire, because you didn’t tell them upfront about your preference.  Be mindful of their thoughts and put yourself in their shoes. 

Being honest is important.  If your partner is committed to being with you, you can take it slowly and introduce things, create a way to express your fetish in a way that appeals to both of you.Checking in along the way. Explore together.

Take small steps.  It also helps to do research together. It can be fear preventing  your partner from saying “yes” to something out of their comfort zone.  They don’t know what it means if their male partner is wearing stockings.

In fact, it doesn’t mean anything.  It is exploration, role-playing, and it’s normal.  It doesn’t imply their sexuality or gender at all.  For example, look at the Kinsey scale that was created by Albert Kinsey in 1948 to represent sexuality, 0 being heterosexual and 6 being homosexual.  According to Kinsey many of us are between 1 and 5 and not are not 0 or 6!  Also, within our lifetime, we will change. Our preferences will change.  So do your best to be honest with your partner early on in your relationship and most importantly have fun!

 

Please visit Jane’s website for more information about her.  She has a free newsletter and an online store full of fun products for your bedroom.  Even though she is Vancouver based, she offers virtual sessions over skype or phone to people from other areas.

___________________________________________________________________________

I asked for an opinion from men who have a fetish and it looked like all of them (those who answered me, of course) agreed with Jane about honesty being the best policy.  Here is what they said.

What do you think?  Do you tell your partner about your sexual preferences upfront?  Can our peers offer some dating advice?

Gentleman A

To me it just seems like common sense. If you’re trying to be in a stable relationship, 100% honesty is key. If you’re just in it for the sex… well, it’s only logical to admit to a fetish.  Either way it’s not only a good idea to be up front, it’s quite important to.

I told my wife about my fetishes (I have foot fetish as well as a pantyhose fetish) early on when we were dating.  She wasn’t put off at all; she was rather intrigued by it.  She asked me questions and I was open and honest. Our sex life was better off for it, as was our emotional attachment to each other.

Gentleman B

Your relationship with a particular woman needs to be honest and sincere. Your true feelings for her – (sexually and non sexually) need and should come first!  Early on your dating/courtship, it should surface. Don’t be forceful, rude, or anything like that. From her point of view, a pantyhose fetish can be welcomed, as long as it’s not extreme.  Good luck.

 Gentleman C

I have always expressed it within the first couple of dates.  Never had anyone freak out or leave me because of it.  Most are really accepting.

 Gentleman D

You’d be surprised of the number of ladies I’ve dated and shared my fetish and love of pantyhose on women. I’d usually tell them about it, right after the first sexual encounter.
I learned early:  first satisfy a women in bed and she’ll be most willing to satisfy your every wish.  Within reason, of course.  When sharing my fetish, many were aroused by the thought and some had some kinky wishes, too.  I’ve never had any bad experiences in sharing this with women I’ve dated.  All in all, it’s been a lot of fun and I’d do it all again.

 Gentleman E

As long as you trust her, have genuine feelings for her and truly want be with her and she feels the same way about you, by all means tell her about your fetish before it’s too late. Not when proposing or after marriage. Common sense prevails.

 Gentleman F

I’m upfront with the women I date, and they all are fine with it. Best to be honest with them about it, and if they like you, then they would be more than happy to wear pantyhose for you.

Pierre Molinier – artist with a hosiery fetish

March 11, 2012 under Art

Some call it Fetish, some call it Art.  Recently I went to visit Vancouver Art Gallery with my friend to see surreal art exhibit and one photograph left an impression on me, it was by Pierre Molinier.

Pierre Molinier and Stockings

Pierre Molinier has many photographs featuring black stockings.

I came across two photos of a man and a woman, both wearing black fishnet stockings – that caught my eye right away.  I went to that spot twice to write down the name and look at the picture one more time.

The artist, Pierre Molinier (1900 – 1976), was obsessed with black stockings and shapely legs – both male and female.  He admitted that there is nothing more sexual for him then a shapely leg covered in black nylon.

I advise you not to check his work too much if you are sensitive to sexual content.  I am myself quite sensitive to violence and explicit nudity in art galleries.  However, I figure I’ll let you know that there was an artist who was seriously into hosiery and even our local art gallery finds him worth displaying!

Pantyhose Obsession and Fetish

June 4, 2011 under Love

black opaque pantyhose

f-e-t-i-s-h …  dangerous topic.  Yes, pantyhose obsession is not uncommon.  #1 obsession in the world is shoes.  #2 is pantyhose and stockings.

I had a lot of men telling me that they have a love for hosiery.  Why wouldn’t a man be attracted to such a feminine garment?  I think this is the most classiest kink out there.

Some have difficulty explaining to their partner about why they like it so much.  You can’t explain it, it’s just the way you are!  How can we possibly give rational explanations to our sexual preferences?  Some men tell me that they were attracted to pantyhose since the age of 4 or 5.

If a woman truly loves her man, of course she’d be dying to dress up in clothes that make him want her so badly!  If you think about it, who else would be more important to impress with your outfit than your own lover?  Wouldn’t you want to be attractive for her too?

But what if she is not attentive to your needs and tells you that she doesn’t want to wear this kind of clothing for you, no matter how nicely you ask her?  Well, if she is your girlfriend, as hard as it is to say, I suggest you move on and find another girl that would love to please you.  If this is your wife, it’s time to have a serious conversation – could that be that she feels that her needs are not met, therefore she became cold to your desires?

The reason why I believe that couples should be absolutely compatible when it comes to sexuality is because once you marry, you can’t ask any other person for sexual satisfaction except for your own spouse.  This is what makes this union special – romance, love, sexuality.  Great conversations can exist between friends and co-workers, but sexual  intimacy is something else.
