Obscene Pantyhose

Is it art or is it porn?  That is the question.  Unfortunately, the question is misstated.  I believe the true question is - Is it artistic or is it obscene? - but more on that later.

Porn is defined as an object that creates or satisfies an excessive desire for something, so I suppose if we all stop eating for a few days food becomes pornographic.  If only you stop eating and I continue with my normal food intake, a few days later you find food to be pornographic and I still just consider it food.  In other words, what is pornographic to you is different than what is pornographic to me because the same object might not hold the same appeal for me.

The distinction between pornography and obscenity is subtle.  Where pornography creates an excessive desire for something, that which is obscene is offensive to morality or decency.  So a pornographic object creates desire and that object is considered obscene if it is deemed offensive or immoral.  In my view, we as individuals label the objects we consider pornographic, this is a subjective determination of the individual, whereas our societal values and morals label such objects obscene, this is a subjective determination of the collective.

For the most part, our society and the values and morals of the community in which we live put both labels - pornographic and obscene - on most of what is presented within the Pantyhose Share Club galleries.  So my effort to bear out the distinction between these two terms is all for naught, right?  Not so.  I'm not addressing your local PTA here, I'm reaching out to pantyhose lovers and others with a deep interest in the pantyhose lifestyle.

The values of our community are likely more liberal than those of the larger community in which you live, so I believe it is important for each of us to understand the distinction between these terms.  Not so we can pose a more learned argument in an attempt to sway the opinion of others or convince them that our love of pantyhose and images portraying pantyhose are moral, but so we can understand and be more accepting of the subtle differences among others within our pantyhose community. 

I find pantyhose in and of themselves to be pornographic because, by the very definition of this term, pantyhose hold a very strong appeal for me.  If you're reading this, then I suppose you might feel the same way.  I don't find pantyhose to be inherently obscene but I admit that I consider some of the images appearing within the Pantyhose Share Club galleries to be obscene.  I am accepting of the differing tastes and opinions of others, so I don't bar this material from appearing on our site, but you've probably noticed that I do protect the general public with warning signs upon initial entry to the site because I realize that not everyone wants to be exposed to this type of material.

Each of us must define for ourselves what is pornographic to us.  For me, that includes nearly any image of a woman or man wearing pantyhose, and this label applies primarily because of the extraordinary obsession that this diaphanous covering holds over me.  I don't find these images objectionable, on the contrary, these images are very pleasing to my eye so I label them artistic.  If viewing pantyhose images causes you to get an erection or otherwise stimulates you sexually, then it is very likely you consider these images pornographic.  Whether or not that same reaction also leads you to believe these images are obscene is a wholly separate matter, motivated more by your perceptions of morality when such feelings stir inside you.

If we are both obsessively drawn to the same image, then that image can clearly be labeled pornographic for both of us.   If you are uncomfortable with the feelings that stir within you as a result of viewing that image, then you likely label the image obscene whereas I call it art.  Regardless of the various labels placed on these images, I am pleased to bring our Pantyhose Share Club community together to celebrate them and I am comfortable both with how they affect you and how you label them.  Be it art or be it obscene, it is all porn and it is all worth celebrating.

I'm looking forward to sharing more with you soon.

  1. On women, pantyhose are not concidered a fetish. Although.in some context, one could say they are merely accentuating the look of ones legs. If one has a hang up, then its a problem. I enjoy the look of nice legs inpantyhose. It is natural to me

  2. as a teen i grew up with a half sister 7 yrs older. When i was 10 she was 17. I delighted in exploring her frilly bedroom. She wore lace blue panties regular stockings and later pantyhose. She was so hot looking. I enjoyed the smooth feel of her nylons and satin panties caressing my penis. I wore her things frequently. She knew and started leaving her wet panties for my delight!

  3. The scent of a woman is a turn on. At 10, you explore the vast array of testosterone enduced sexuality. Where ever that is. A natural curiously young guy will gain excitement from the sexy outfits wherever they are. I was fortunate to have a half sister willing to oblige my fetishes for her intimates. I had a nice little stash of her panties and nylons among others for my pleasure. She commented on my masturbaton once. I often let a nice sample of cum on her satin panties.

  4. Well, if masturbaton in pantyhose is porno, then count me in. As far as I am concerned, anything erogenous that has to do with erotica and nylons or high heels, or lingerie is fine and dandy candy.

  5. Good taste isn't a perverse thing. If you do something that seems less than typical, then it is maybe unusual. Many are quick to jump to a conclusion that someone cross dressing is a transvestite turning hay tricks or a prostitute. How untrue.

  6. If their's money to be made, even hosiery could be made pornographic. Someone said:" It's NOT THE CASING it's the sausage. In other words, whatever makes someone's legs MORE beautiful, is nice. It ISN'T THE attire that adorns the sexy legs in the final way. We add expensive diamonds and gold, we wear attire to flatter and make our selves better looking. Have million dollar homes. Drive Mercedes, have our nail and hair done. Plastic surgery, you name it- IS the accessories and the additions that offer even more esthetic beautifully designs and "VIVA LA DIFFERENCE".

  7. ADDENDUM: WOW-it takes hours of preparation to get a woman or a guy in the final stages of precise readiness for a special event or date. As a guy, I am greatly glad I don't have all that extra stuff to adorn myself. Makeup, hair, ALL THAT EXTRA STUFF TO ADDRESS THE final outcome. Hours and hours of extreme measures to look "just right". My God what a list of things a gal has to do to get presented. With me, shower shave, dress and go!

  8. "As a caricature ,some people may imitate the complete female in full dress attire. The affection those males have are usually a measure of compliment or fasination. They aren't mocking or trying to degrade women by dressing as one. The stereotypically cross dresser is not gay or bi. They express a degree of comparative understanding of them and the way they go about this undergoing of the degree of just how it really is out there on uncomfy shoes, the tedious regimen, and the long timecomsuming fashion trends that designate the "modern woman".

  9. I believe that the perversely opinionated view of what some people regard as a person who is tagged abnormal because of this hosiery issue are over critical of a harmless hobby that has zealous overtones to those that are not cognizant of the totality of a new idea or something else untoward the prevailing idealism.
