Summer Pantyhose Turn to Fall

If you're a pantyhose lover, summer is not your favorite season.  You know that even girls that will sometimes wear in cool weather, they pack their pantyhose away when the weather is warm.  The calendar is about to roll over to August, so it won't be long now, but we're still right in the middle of what they call the "dog days" of summer.  The most brutal heat and humidity may still be ahead of us. 

This hasn't been a mild summer, at least not in Chicago where I live.  It's been a good summer though, not many stretches of brutal heat, but enough to let you know it's summer and enough to make me long for fall, my favorite season.  I'm not sure why fall wound up at the top of my list of favorite seasons and, by the way, summer is at the bottom.  I love fall colors and just thinking about them now makes me want to turn the calendar ahead quickly!  Fall is the best time to wear earth tones, black is basic and works anytime, but brown hose are best worn in fall.  Last fall it was fashionable to wear mustard and I've got the hose to prove it.  I hope to be wearing those again soon, although I'm not sure they'll remain in fashion for a second season in a row, not that I'm a fashion icon so I can still wear them once or twice this fall season.

If all this talk of fall hasn't yet got you yearning for it, then you must truly love summer.  I've just always felt more comfortable in cooler weather becuase it's easier (and more comfy) to put on an extra layer to keep warm.

Okay, back to reality now for both you and me, it's still summer and even in Chicago we'll have another 6 or maybe even 8 weeks of warm weather before you can truly say fall is here.  After that the pantyhose should return and it seems pantyhose are getting a favorable turn fashion-wise, thanks to the sisters Middleton, so they may return in a big way this year.  I've always enjoyed turning the calendar to August because I know my favorite season is just around the corner.  I hope you'll enjoy turning the calendar to August as well - Happy August everyone!

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

PantyhoseShareClub.net August Updates Arrive Early!

PantyhoseShareClub.net has seen a flurry of activity over the past 24-hours - Updates, Updates, Updates!  We now have a discussion board, Hot or Not? games, a new pantyhose survey along with results to review and if that's not enough, I've expanded the photo gallery and added four pantyhose news stories!

Yes, I've been busy getting this all ready and rolling it out.  I hope you enjoy it. 

I need to get into work early this morning, so I'm going to cut this short and get ready.  I'll write more soon, have a great day everybody!

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

Pantyhose Jackoff

There, I said it.  If you're obsessed with pantyhose then you might use them for self pleasure.  I'm not appalled by that.  In fact, I'm not appalled primarily because I have known many, many pantyhose-loving men that use them for that purpose.  But even though the title of this post is intended to capture your attention, you probably know by now that the content of the post is intended to make you think just a little bit deeper on the subject of pantyhose in our lives. 

So you think you're shallow because you pleasure yourself with pantyhose?  Hardly.  No more shallow than any other man or woman that's ever felt an urge and sought to take care of it.  We are all human beings with a built in sex drive, so we have urges and, believe it or not, we need to take care of them.  In my opinion, it's a healthy part of life.  But does it make you shallow?  Again, say it with me... hardly! 

The key concept I want you to understand is this.  You are not defined by your urges, nor by how you take care of them.  No matter how frequently or infrequently, no matter how mainstream or out of the ordinary.  I would never define your life by that measure and I hope that you will not define yourself in that way.  Recall in an earlier post I talked about feeling "dirty", that is in itself a definition and a description that I believe should be avoided here.

Instead, define your life by what you've accomplished with or without pantyhose on.  Define your life by what you've done for others, with our without pantyhose pleasure after a stressful day at work.  Define your life by the awesome accomplisments of children that you've raised.  These are just some of the amazing things that some in our community are doing. 

Okay, you use pantyhose to jackoff.  So what?  You like to ogle pictures of pantyhose girls while jacking off.  Get over it!  This is not who you are, it's simply what you do and we all do something.  The pantyhose gallery at PantyhoseShareClub.net is the first site feature that I built and that should come as no surprise.  Without a pantyhose gallery offering a pleasurable ogling experience, I didn't think my site would get many visitors.  So browse and enjoy, but don't let your urges define you.  Let your accomplishments define you.  I choose to define you by your accomplishments.

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

Adoring Pantyhose

A friend of mine recently asked if I appreciate adoring glances from men checking out my legs.  My answer to that question is, what's not to appreciate?  One of the reasons I started wearing pantyhose frequently was the recognition that men (well, boys at the time) appreciated and paid more attention to me while wearing them.  That made me feel good for wearing them (a psychological sensation), it wasn't until years later that I came to appreciate that pantyhose simply felt good on me (a tactile sensation).

Years have passed since I dressed up to impress the boys at school and I've been married for many years now, but the thrill from an adoring glance never really goes away (yes, even an adoring glance from my husband!).  But we all do change some as we get older and I'm no exception.  I'm less of a tease now than I was when I was younger.  In fact, I purposely try not to tease men at work or other captive audience situations because I've come to feel that it's not really fair to them.  That means I won't dangle my shoe while sitting in a meeting, something I used to do on purpose years ago while casually scanning the room to watch for reactions.  The same goes for crossing and re-crossing my legs.  If you're a leg lover (and you probably are!), you know these simple leg tease techniques and I'm sure they catch your attention when you're in a room where someone is employing them.  You can probably appreciate the teasing effect, but in my workplace these days I'm more concerned with how people perceive my professional contributions, so that's the biggest reason I've stopped the teasing play.

So now a question for you... I mentioned above that I feel it's not fair to tease men at work.  That's just my opinion and obviously my opinion has changed over the years.  What's your opinion?  Do you feel it's fair to tease in the workplace?  Do you appreciate being teased in the workplace or is that best saved for other settings?  Please comment and discuss!

Don't forget to check out PantyhoseShareClub.net!  We have several new features coming to the site very soon!

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

Wild Pantyhose Adventure

I'm home from work early today and we're packing up to head out on a camping trip for the weekend.  Yes, that is the wild pantyhose adventure that I refer to, but it won't be all that wild since we're not heading very far afield, and I may not be wearing pantyhose much since it's still quite hot and, let's face it, pantyhose and wilderness adventures do not exactly go well together.  Sorry to disappoint, but again I remind you that it's not just wearing pantyhose that defines my addiction, it's the 24/7 pantyhose lifestyle that, in fact, defines who I am.  If you're reading this, I bet there's something about pantyhose that's present with you 24/7 as well, am I right?

Since I'll be away for the weekend, I probably won't get a chance to post anything (even though we have smart phones out in the wilderness!), so I wanted to post just a quick note here so no one would wonder what's happened to me.  We'll be back late Sunday night but I probably won't post again until sometime on Monday.

The new features for PantyhoseShareClub.net are coming along nicely and next time you log-in you'll notice I've started reorganizing the menus to prepare for the next version coming in about a week!  It is very exciting to create something like this and the more features and functions I add to this site, the more thrilled I am with it.

Enjoy the weekend.

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

Are You a Pantyhose Geek?

So you're addicted to pantyhose, but are you a pantyhose geek?  I'm addicted to pantyhose but I am not a pantyhose geek.  Don't get me wrong, I am plenty geeky.  If you've been following my posts and the developments of the website PantyhoseShareClub.net, then you know I'm a computer geek.  Guilty as charged!  But being a computer geek does not automatically qualify me as a pantyhose geek, regardless of how much I love pantyhose.

So what characteristics define a pantyhose geek? Well, you might be a pantyhose geek if you've ever done any of the following things:
  1. Pulled pantyhose over your head.
  2. "Borrowed" pantyhose from a dirty laundry pile to play with them.
  3. Buried your face in a pair of dirty pantyhose and inhaled deeply.
  4. "Borrowed" pantyhose from the underwear drawer of your mom, sister, wife, girlfriend, or anyone else you know.
  5. Stolen pantyhose from a store or the aforementioned underwear drawers (this is "borrowing" without returning).
If you've ever done the activity described in item 5 you are a special type of pantyhose geek - a criminal pantyhose geek - and I strongly advise against such criminal activity.  If you've ever done any of the activities described in items 1 - 4, just because these things are geeky doesn't mean they are bad.  To label them as bad would mean I would have to label my computer geekiness as a bad thing.  It's not. 

You might say that to engage in any of the above activities (yes, even #5) qualifies you as a particularly inspired pantyhose lover and that can only be a good thing.  Please notice my non-judgemental stance on this issue.  Who am I to judge someone that's inspired over the same thing that inspires me? 

I presume that if you've ever been caught "borrowing" pantyhose, or if mom or sis or wife or girlfriend accidentally walked in on you while playing with pantyhose, you might have been instantly judged.  If you've ever been in that kind of embarrassing situation, please take heart.  Put it behind you and continue to enjoy and thrive on the pantyhose lifestyle that is a part of you.  I, for one, will remain non-judgemental and always understanding of those that are afflicted with a pantyhose compulsion.  It makes no difference to me how you carry on with your obsession, provided no one is hurt and you stay within legal boundaries.

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

Busy in Pantyhose

My longest post ever on Monday and then yesterday - nothing!  I've been busy, busy and I'm finding it both challenging and rewarding to juggle my work life, home life and now a very busy online life hosting PantyhoseShareClub.net, along with all the web development and blogging that goes with it.  I hope come August 1st, when I unveil the latest website developments, you'll feel it was worth waiting for me.

Believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to a day when I can settle in to just maintaining the site rather than constantly working to enhance it.  When that day comes I'll be able to enjoy just writing a blog post each day and I am truly looking forward to that.  But if I know me, I won't be satisfied with the site for a long time to come (part of my obsessive nature I guess!), so enjoy the ride cause it's not over yet!

So, here's what you have to look forward to very soon... You already know about Hot or Not? my pantyhose picture rating game.  Testing is almost complete and it's working very nicely, I think you'll have fun playing the game, at least I hope you do!

The very latest development is the addition of the PantyhoseShareClub.net Discussion Board!  Now I can't take credit for all the hard work that goes into creating a discussion board and, to be honest, coding that would be way beyond my abilities.  Instead, I'm integrating the Vanilla discussion board (Vanillaforums.org) into our site and I was just completing some of the final touches this morning.  Now it's time for testing, testing, testing!!  I think you'll like the clean look and ease of use that Vanilla offers.  I've already created groups for general Pantyhose Community discussion along with a Pantyhose Photo group (for pic posts), a Pantyhose Video group ( for posts by link rather than direct upload due to file size limits) and a group called Pantyhose Website Reviews that I hope you'll use to tell us about subscription sites you belong to or have subscribed to in the past.  If you've ever parted with $20 or more to subscribe to a site and then were less than satisfied, I'm sure you recognize the value in sharing that experience with others.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your Wednesday!

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

Pantyhose At Home

So we have this pantyhose obsession.  Notice I said "we" because we're in this together, part of a community, you're not by yourself any longer.  But, if you're not finding any support at home, if those closest to you misunderstand, fail to recognize or refuse to recognize your compulsion, then regardless of how much support our little online community can offer, you're going to feel isolated and alone.  I, for one, do not want you to feel that way, and this was my primary motivation for starting PantyhoseShareClub.net.

One important thing to remember is we cannot change others - you can't make your spouse want to wear pantyhose and you can't make anyone (your spouse, your boss, your friends) accept you for wearing.  There's got to be something more they are willing to accept along with your addiction.  For example, an offer for more frequent erotic interludes in exchange for wearing while playing?  Might not be a bad suggestion to offer your spouse.  What about being a super-duper get-things-done kind of employee?  Might make the boss look the other way next time he spots a nylon clad ankle during casual Friday. 

My point is, you've got to offer something in order to get something in exchange.  I know, you're thinking "I shouldn't have to work harder or make an extra special effort to be accepted for who I am."  Sorry my friend, yes you do!  In my work life I go the extra mile every time, and I do that for one simple reason.  I absolutely, positively do not want to be considered a pantyhose princess.  Actually, I can't even stand typing those words - I dislike the label that much.

Do you think that I'd be recognized on the merits of my work if it were the same quality and volume as my colleagues?  After all, I wear pantyhose nearly every day!  I think not.  There is a pantyhose bias that can be positive for those women that wear only once a month, maybe even up to once a week, but the bias becomes negative for those women that wear more often than that.  I'm not complaining about the bias, I accept it for what it is, and I should point out that not everyone is biased, but I work hard to win over those that are or that might be once they come to realize that pantyhose are part of my lifestyle, not just a part of my wardrobe.

Okay, enough about me, what about you?  If you're not publicly living a pantyhose lifestyle, if you're simply enjoying pantyhose in private, then none of the above really applies to you.  That's okay, it's still good information to be aware of if the day ever comes that you decide to go public.  And maybe you're not out in public but you're out at home and your spouse doesn't accept it.  Then go the extra mile to offer some value to the relationship in exchange for accepting your obsession. 

My spouse is not obsessed with pantyhose - he likes pantyhose, he's just not obsessed with them, and we sometimes struggle with that fine line between understanding and acceptance.  The problem with that line is there's a side of it where people misunderstand you and you feel unaccepted!  Needless to say, we cross over to the wrong side of that line from time to time.  Lately, though, I have felt so awesome about the work I'm doing to develop PantyhoseShareClub.net, mostly because I'm getting encouragement from my spouse!  Finally, I can contribute to our community and further my pantyhose lifestyle without creating waves at home!  I am thrilled!

This topic is not over yet, I will write more, but I must close this for today.  I hope you find some value in the thoughts I've tried to convey.

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

Improvements to PantyhoseShareClub.net

I'm excited to tell you that I've made a few minor changes and one major improvement to PantyhoseShareClub.net this morning! 

32 mb file sharing!! 

I thought it was going to be difficult but it turned out to be very easy.  Just a few little tweaks to the site and we've quadrupled the size of files that can be uploaded using the Share feature. 

But wait, that's not all!  Next time you visit the site you might notice a number of small changes in layout and navigation between pages.  I've been learning about search engine optimization and I'm making changes that will help the site become more visible to Google and other search providers.  I sure hope this works!  I'm putting a lot of time into developing this site and I don't want it to remain invisible!!

So, next time you're on the site, please consider inviting a friend to join Pantyhose Share Club - PantyhoseShareClub.net > Participate > Invite a Friend to Join - and the next time you visit PantyhoseExperience.com or another pantyhose message board, consider mentioning PantyhoseShareClub.net so others will drop by to check us out!

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

A Pantyhose Game

Let me start this out by being perfectly clear.  Pantyhose are not a joke to me, they're not fun and games, this is a lifestyle and if you can identify with that concept then I know you're in the right place (I hope you feel you are too!).  Even though I don't consider this lifestyle a "game", I enjoy games and so I'm creating a pantyhose game that will soon be available on PantyhoseShareClub.net.

The game is called Hot or Not? and as the name implies, this is a pantyhose picture rating game.  The game serves up pictures in pairs and all you have to do is click on the picture you prefer.  Each game takes you through 28 picture pairs and once you're done the reveal shows your preferred images compared to all other players.  Once you play a game you can go back a day or a week or a month later to compare your results against everyone that played the game up to that point, but sorry guys, once you complete a game you don't get a "do over" - you get only one chance to pick your favorite pic!  Don't worry, though, you won't get bored because I can create 100's of  pic sets and each one is a new game!  I'll even ask other members to contribute pic sets (each set has 8 images, by the way) so you can create your very own game and track user preferences as other players post results!

Now I hope all this sounds like fun to you.  I know I'm having a lot of fun creating the game.  For those of you that participated in the pantyhose survey I conducted on PantyhoseExperience.com last year, you'll recognize the picture pairing concept.  There's a slightly different twist in that I'm not planning to complete any serious statistical analysis on the game results (I've learned this is very difficult!) but I've not completely thrown away my stats textbook... All possible paired combinations of 8 pics = 28!!

I should have the game published on the site sometime in August and I'll make an announcement here when it's ready.  I hope you'll stop by to play and enjoy all the other features that PantyhoseShareClub.net has to offer.

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

More on Kate's Pantyhose

I just came across another article on Yahoo! Shine regarding Kate Middleton wearing pantyhose.  I just had to get the word out, so a rare midday post from me!

Pantyhose In The News

Breaking News!  Will and Kate are visiting California!  But you already knew that.  How about this headline...

Is Kate Bringing Back Sheer Pantyhose?

Now that's an eye-catching story!  Seriously, no pun intended.

Simply put, Kate is a beautiful girl, but you knew that too.  Is it possible?  Might this amazingly beautiful Brit, captivating all the world with her glamour and fame, bring about change in leg fashions?  She won't change me, of course, I'm way ahead of her, but fashionistas tend to follow trends and Kate might just be starting a trend.

What do you think?  Do you think it's possible that many will follow or will they simply scoff and make fun of her for wearing?  Let's discuss!

Check out the whole story on PantyhoseShareClub.net > Participate > Read About Pantyhose News.

Have you seen a pantyhose news story in the media lately?  If so, please pass it along > PantyhoseShareClub.net > Contact.

Playing with Pantyhose

Men love to play on the Internet.  Why they even bother printing Playboy and other magazines anymore is beyond me.  Men that love pantyhose are especially drawn to the Internet because it seems these days you can't get your fix seeing women in hose unless you're invited to a wedding or some other formal event.  It's visual stimulation that the Internet serves up so nicely and I think that men are stimulated visually more so than women. 

It's not polite to gawk, so when you're invited to that next wedding, please try to act like a gentleman, but it's okay to gawk at the images on the Internet you can fill your eyes with that candy.  It's a way to relax, refresh, recharge.  You probably need that once in a while, especially if there's some source of stress in your life (and who doesn't have that?).

The tension you build while gawking at all those pretty women in pantyhose.  It feels so sweet to be teased.  You take your time and let it build up.  The storm is always strongest right before the calm.  You're shaking, quivering, you've never been so tense... Then you're relaxed! 

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

Another Hot Weekend in Pantyhose

Enough already!  The heat is becoming just unbearable.  I'm not sure how the weather is where you are, but here in Chicago we're getting temps in the 90's and we don't normally get many days in a row that hot.  Tomorrow will be the third day and I think that means we officially call it a "heat wave". 

I hate to disappoint, but I've been bare legged all weekend.  Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the beach and I've got the sunburn to prove it!  It was hot enough we should've spent the entire weekend at the beach but today I spent more time working on the website just wearing cotton shorts and no hose.

I'm committed to the pantyhose lifestyle but I guess I'm not quite that committed.  But it's not just wearing pantyhose that demonstrates our commitment.  According to the survey I'm currently conducting on PantyhoseShareClub.net, most club members never wear hose yet we all share a common bond to this lifestyle.  I'm proud to say I embrace this lifestyle and prouder still to be part of a community of other hose lovers, celebrating the lifestyle.  Something I've done privately for years and now I'm finally public in a very big way!

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

PantyhoseShareClub.net Version 2011-7.3 is now Live!

Thanks to everyone that's been supportive with kind words and encouraging comments.  I'm really pleased to see how much you're enjoying the site.

For the rest of today, I'm just going to relax.  We're planning an afternoon at the beach with our dogs and it is looking like a beautiful day to do just that.  I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend!

Busy with PantyhoseShareClub.net

Posting late today, sorry for that.  Just now taking a break, just really busy today at work.  I know, that's not the title of my post, it says I'm busy with PantyhoseShareClub.net and that's also true!  The site is starting to get more traffic!  Thanks to all of you that have stopped by to visit!  Users are also starting to share more, so thanks for that too!

I was busy this morning loading all the files that came through last night and I messed up a bunch, so I had to scramble to get that fixed.  If you've been on the site today you might notice some strange behavior in the gallery thumbnails.  I've got it fixed, I just haven't implemented the fix yet so please bear with me!  I'm learning a lot and having a lot of fun creating this website.  I'm just so pleased to see so many people enjoying it!  Still, if you're visiting the site and taking more than you're leaving behind, please consider stopping by to share some pics!  It's all about sharing and enjoying what others have shared!

I'll be uploading a new version of the site over the weekend.  Not much new that you can visibly see, I've been working on improving the log-in, new member registration and invite a friend features.  Mostly behind the scenes stuff but important nonetheless.  Next, I want to start working on a Hot-or-Not section where you see two randomly selected pictures side by side and rate them thumbs up or down.  You like that idea?  Do you have any ideas on how to improve the site?  Please let me know! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

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

Dirty Pantyhose?

A friend of mine recently suggested that he was "dirty" for enjoying the sexual titillation and arousal he gets from ogling pantyhose women.  Your car can get dirty.   When that happens you wash it.  Pantyhose can get dirty and those get washed too.  A person is not dirty and a person's mind is not dirty.  I suggest you not use that term to describe how you feel about pantyhose or the women that wear them.  

Our bodies are made to enter a state of arousal when we're enjoying those things we find sexy.  It's a totally natural state and not dirty at all.  For a pantyhose lover, a simple glance at a pretty leg (or foot or ankle even!) can help to get them into "the mood".  Different from most, but common for those of you that are reading this post. 

Which brings me to my next topic... Is anyone interested in posting a reply to start a discussion around this or any of the other posts I've put here?  If so, please feel free!  Jump in and participate!

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

Pantyhose Survey Geek

Those of you that have known me a while might recall a big survey I was conducting last year on PantyhoseExperience.com.  In that project I was trying to identify specific elements of attraction men have towards women wearing pantyhose.  Now that's a huge undertaking!  I eventually canceled the project mostly because it became incredibly time consuming, and not being a professional surveyor I was afraid my results were going to be worthless.  Nonetheless, I had a lot of fun during the month or so I was running the survey and I learned a lot too. 

One thing I learned about myself is how truly committed I am to this lifestyle.  Committed to the extent that I put in 2 - 4 hours a day everyday for the month I was running the survey.  That's on top of my regular full time job.  I also learned how accepting I am of others with a pantyhose compulsion.  We're all a little different even though we share this one thing in common, and sometimes our differences make it hard to accept one another.  But since only we can truly understand the power that pantyhose have over us, we should try a little harder to overlook the differences and be accepting others in our pantyhose community.  

I'm trying to make http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ a place where all pantyhose lovers can visit and find something of interest that helps bring our community together.  I want to keep surveying pantyhose addicts because I think that's the best way to learn about who we are and the survey results will help me further develop the website.  I won't duplicate or continue my survey from last year, that was just too much work, but I will create short surveys, post them on the website and invite participation from club members as well as others that might be interested in joining the club (or at least willing to take the surveys!). 

I've created the first pantyhose survey and posted it on the site.  It will only take a minute or two to complete.  If you'd like to participate in the survey please visit www.PantyhoseShareClub.net/participate.php and click on "Take our July 2011 Pantyhose Survey".  I'll post survey results along with a new survey around the first of each month, so if you're a survey geek like me, check back in early August to review the results and take another survey!

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

A Pantyhose Intellectual

Have you ever seen the movie Top Gun?  It came out over 20 years ago, so if you're under 30 you might not have seen it, but I still remember seeing it for the first time (and I've also seen it a couple of times since).  In the movie, actress Kelly McGillis portrays a physicist working for the Air Force at the Top Gun flight school.  I remember a friend saying how unbelievable her character was.  "A PhD physicist wearing stiletto heels" my friend said while rolling his eyes.  I asked if he thought she was pretty... and the answer was yes, and I asked if he admired her legs and the way she looked in the stilettos... and the answer was yes.  "So what's the problem then?", I asked.  It turns out, there was no problem (but you already guessed that!).

So why is it so difficult to believe that a nicely dressed woman wearing pantyhose and a great pair of shoes could be a PhD-toting intellectual?  Well, I view myself as that woman!!  Not that I consider Kelly McGillis my role model, and I certainly don't have a PhD in physics, but I'm a smart, well-educated, introspective woman that also happens to love pantyhose and all the amazing shoes I can pack into my closet!

I love challenging my brain and I'm finding it incredibly enjoyable to develop the PantyhoseShareClub.net website that I will share freely with our pantyhose community.  Just two years ago I didn't have the first clue how to program a website, but I just kept learning more and more and now I feel confident that I'm producing a website that many people will enjoy.  It's the combination of my love for pantyhose and the intellectual challenge that is truly intoxicating and keeping me totally engaged in this project.  http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ is a labor of love for me and I hope you'll love it too.

Now that the site is officially launched you can drop in and take a more complete test drive.  If you'd like to join our community of pantyhose lovers, just send email to join@pantyhoseshareclub.net. I'm looking for a few web-savvy testers that can dig in, test out the site and tell me what is and is not working right.  Please get in touch if you'd like to be part of this test group.

I'm really hoping our pantyhose community can come together around PantyhoseShareClub.net, enabling us to share our passion for pantyhose in a unique and enjoyable way.

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

Too Hot for Pantyhose?

Yesterday was a very hot day in Chicago and today looks like it will be another scorcher!  But is it too hot for pantyhose?  Well, before I answer that question let me tell you that it was too hot to go bike riding yesterday.  My husband and I were planning a long bike ride but we decided to postpone that and wait for a cooler day. 

So, if it's too hot to go outside and get some exercise, is it too hot for pantyhose?  Well, I am a compulsive lover and wearer of pantyhose but there are certain times when I abstain.  If I'd gone on that bike ride, for example, whether it was 90-degrees or 50-degrees, I would not have worn pantyhose.  I love my legs and I love keeping my body in shape and my legs nicely toned, but when I'm out doing that I'm not dressing to show them off and let's face it, one of the primary reasons women wear pantyhose is to show off their legs. 

But there's more to it than that.  I'm not just into hose to show off, I love the feeling of wearing and I love how they make me feel when I wear them.  But when it's 90-degrees out and the humidity is way up there too, that lovely feeling of wearing doesn't feel so lovely anymore.  The thing is, whether I'm wearing or not, I still love them, and that's what makes me the pantyhose addict that I am.  I have a pantyhose state of mind 100% of the time even though I may not be wearing them all the time.

I had a nice chunk of time to work on the website yesterday, it's coming along nicely and I think I'll have it ready for launch by next weekend.  Stop by and take a look! - http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ 

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

How do you get hooked on pantyhose?

Getting hooked on pantyhose isn't something that you just decide to do one day when you wake up.  I'm sure it's different for just about everyone, but for me it took place over about 8 years.  I know now that it really got started when I was about 14, though I didn't realize it at the time.  I was interested in boys (like any 14 year old girl!) but they didn't always show interest in me.  At least the ones I wanted to show interest weren't always showing it.  Then I noticed one day, when I was wearing hose, that more guys would talk to me, smile at me, want to walk with me.  More than the day before, and more than the day after cause on both of those days I wasn't wearing hose. 

Now it probably wasn't just the hose because I was dressing up while wearing them (that was back in the days when I didn't wear hose with blue jeans!), so the guys might have been attracted to what I was wearing in addition to the hose, but I remember thinking that if they liked hose then I was going to wear hose!  Still, I wasn't hooked on wearing them because I only wore when I went to school or other places where there was a possibility to meet boys. 

It was a gradual process going from wearing hose out of a desire to look appealing to boys to finally getting to a point where I wore them everyday just because it felt right.  I was nearly finished with college and 22 at the time when a friend asked me outright (the first time anyone was ever so bold) if I was a pantyhose addict.  By then I was definintely wearing every day, not every minute of every day but for some time nearly every day, but I'd still not put that label on myself.  And you know what I did?  I denied it!  I didn't want anyone to brand me with that label so I flat out denied it.  Well, as you can see I'm not denying it any more - I am a pantyhose addict.

It's the 4th of July long weekend and a beautiful summer in Chicago!  My hub and I will be shopping for a new sofa today and we'll take a long bike ride (about 20 miles!) on Sunday.  Not sure what is shaping up for the 4th yet.  Please stop by and visit http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ over the weekend, the site is still under constrction but it will be up and running soon!  I hope everyone enjoys a safe and happy 4th!

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

A Pantyhose Life

I want to share a secret... I LOVE pantyhose!!  I've been sharing my pantyhose life with a select group of online friends for more than 10 years and I think it's time to share my passion for pantyhose with the world.

I've encountered so many amazing people that share this passion for pantyhose, and nearly every pantyhose lover I've had the good fortune to meet has become an instant friend.  There's something about a hose lover, something that draws us together through common experience and a sense of community.  Believe me, it was such a relief to learn I was not alone!  To realize that there is a community of pantyhose lovers that understand my passion and accept me for who I am. 

I want to share my pantyhose passion with each of you personally while drawing us together collectively as a community of pantyhose lovers, so I am preparing to launch my latest creation - a website called http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/.  I hope you'll drop by, take a look around and spend some time on the site.  I hope you'll also return here each day to catch up with my latest posts on the subject of pantyhose - celebrating our collective lust for the art, beauty and passion of pantyhose.

http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ will be fully functional in about a week, but feel free to click through now and preview the site.  I hope you'll stop back and help me celebrate once the site is launched.

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