Hey Mans Man, give it up already. It's only a piece of clothing. One that has been marketed to women for so long that it's been ingrained in us that it's taboo for men to wear them. Truth is, it's just a piece of fabric and yes they can add extra warmth for cold days. UnderArmor now markets tights and puts a masculine spin on them betting that most men feel the way you do and will pay the extra $30 per pair not to feel like a sissy. Truth be told, It's all in how secure you are in your masculinity. If you're totally secure then all the hype doesn't matter. If not, then you lash out at people to make yourself feel more manly. But, most of us oil workers here in Alaska wear them, AND tights, just to keep our manhood from freezing solid, and Roughnecks are not the kind of people you want to be calling sissys. So come on up and we'll have a little chit chat about it. Just make sure all of your affairs are in order before you do.

I was advised, while in the Marines, to wear pantyhose in swampy areas where leaches were a problem. They worked very well for something they were not intended. Now I just wear them because I like the way the feel!

I'm 47, straight, and have a family...and yes, I wear pantyhose occasionally. They feel good and look good if you're brave enough to wear them under shorts. They only look good on male or female legs if the legs are toned. I've worn them openly under shorts several times.

Im a 50 year old guy that wears pantyhose all the time. Ive worn them for years. They feel great even to sleep in! My girlfriend thinks they're sexy.
Perfect under jeans at work for support and on the motorcycle for extra warmth. Buy the ones with Lycra that are shiny or smooth so they glide easily under your pants.
I love to wear two pairs at a time for more compression while at work on my feet all day. They're are also great for lounging around the house, just have a pair of pants nearby in case someone shows up at your door if your worried about it.

Tights/pantyhose and leggings are unisex for men and women to wear, it not gay or anything and think about your own health include legs need energy to aviod from weak,cramps,blood clots and keep warm that important. i would say both men and women are equal as crossdressing, im wear black tights with denim shorts that look nice also short skirts as well for keep cool when it hot weather plus nice warm leggings as well that ok to wear as it your business to buy and wear never mind people staring or anything as it not thier business to tell you what to wear. wear it and go out in public and feel relax walking :-)

I often wear opaque tights and sometimes to work under my trousers, even sleep in them ocassionally. I work with women, i am not sure if they know or if there is any way to tell. I just feel comfortable wearing them, i love the soft feeling they have. I am 100% straight and in no way a crossdresser although i do get a little turned on. I like seeing women wearing tights or leggings. I also have support tights as well and i have noticed my legs being less tired after being on my feet all day. I work in the healthcare sector and i know some people have to wear to wear stockings/tights to help with circulation, etc. With the opaque tights, they are good in the winter as they keep you warm which helps when you don't use the car.

My boyfriend wears smooth Pantyhose for me, and of course I wear silky ones for him - yes they help with circulation and thrombosis and warmth and the fit of your outer clothes and exercise, but we wear them for the sexy texture. Feeling eachother through them and against eachother is ultra erotic. The biggest piece of advice I can give on this topic is to try many different pairs. 9 times out of 10 the higher quality pairs will feel and fit best.
As for the 1 (or 2)'guys' that think it's actually 'gay'(?) or ...whatever - they are obviously not too intelligent. MEN have worn Pantyhose/Tights for approx. 1 Thousand years.
Women have worn them for approx 70 years. And if you are so afraid of something that is silky & sexy (and simply nothing but a man made material) then you obviously have security issues on yourself.'Mans Man' was correct in choosing his screen name. Women wouldn't be into him. "Watch the 'man show'" "man-up"? This 'guy'(not a 'Man') will buy anything *they* tell him. We know who he voted for!
My girlfriend got me to wear sheer pantihose for her also. She finds it sexy! It started out one night just to see how it would feel with our silky legs and privates rubbing together throuth the hose. We both loved the feell and I loved just the feel of the hose on. Next day she had bought me a dozen pair and also shaved my legs for me! We had a great time in bed that night and did not sleep much! I now wear pantihose under my trousers most days. It is amazing how much more confortable trousers are on with pantihose under. She has said she would love to see how my legs would look in high heels, but her shoes are too small for me to try on. OMG do I dare ask her to buy me a pair, or would that develop into something wierd?

I really love the feel of pantyhose but I am concerned that others will know of my wearing them under my clothes. Nylons seem to have a order about them that is feminine. I am here tring to get past this issue but so far I won't wear them in "public". Anyone can help? I appreciate the help a lot. rk

OJ Simpson (before he got Infamous) wore pantyhose during football games for warmth without the bulk and swore by them.

I honestly thing that mens should wear pantyhose. I love the way it feels and how it looks. I love wearing woman's thong and the best pantyhose out there. I love to have a woman in my life to accept that and wear them with me.

I do wear hose for about few years now for support and wife is fine with it. Shorts and hose at home a year around and in spring and summer after office work. I had to explain to my son that I have to wear it for support, and he is small kid, but said "ah ok". My parents and relatives fine with it as well.
purchase them: Support hose or thigh highs are great, I buy them on eBay - cheaper than if my insurance cover part of the cost.

My wife encourage me not to worry about it, if I wear hose with shorts, she now says who cares? she don't want me to sweat in pants in summer, she saying that she needs me healthy.
I would say dont worry about what other might think, if you need it for your reason, go and ware it. I wear it with church retreat in summer, pastor did not said a word, but it was visible and obvious. No one said a word, but everyone noticed. So what does that say to you? that says that if you need to wear it, do it and make sure you are comfortable.
