Characterizing Our Formative Pantyhose Identity

Note: These October 2011 survey results are also published on - 

As a community of hose lovers, it is helpful to recognize we are not unique (otherwise known as "odd"). Most others among us
have had similar experiences that contribute or lead to our obsession with pantyhose. This survey is intended to characterize the point in our lives where pantyhose became a part of us, through identifying our desire to enjoy pantyhose and through integrating pantyhose in our sexual
self expression.


Total number of respondents = 84

Gender of Respondents

Age of Respondents

The survey results show that the majority of us formed our obsession with pantyhose in our formative years - 30% under the age of 10, an age at which we have not yet formed a sexual identity, and 38% between 10 and 14, an age at which we are encountering our sexuality for the very first time.
Those with a diaphanous obsession recognize that pantyhose are not simply another article of clothing, we tend to identify with pantyhose as a part of our sexual self expression. The survey results seem to indicate that the integration of pantyhose into our sexual self expression occurred at a time in our lives when we were first forming our sexual identity.

None of us live in a vacuum. We are influenced by others and at no time is this influence more pronounced than in our formative years. The survey results indicate that our mother's influence, possibly with respect to clothing choice, greatly instigated our feelings toward pantyhose.

Primary Influencer

Whether your primary influence came from your mother or someone else, it is very likely that the person responsible for triggering your pantyhose addiction wore hose more than once per week.

Influencer Pantyhose Use Frequency

Even though our primary influencers were frequent hose wearers, most of us do not believe that this person was addicted to pantyhose.

Suspect Influencer Was a Pantyhose Addict?

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

Halloween Hose

Okay guys, I think I finally understand why Halloween is your favorite holiday!  This past weekend was Halloween weekend, the weekend to party in costume, and believe it or not, Saturday night my husband and I made a rare appearance at a nightclub!

Sure, we used to go to the clubs quite often... in our 20's!!  That was many years ago.  Now it's a once in a great while thing and I honestly can't remember the last time we went out to a place I'd call a nightclub, but this past Saturday night, the perfect night for a party, we were out mixing it up with the 20-somethings!!  It was a slight deviation from plan.  We met two other couples for dinner and it turned out they wanted to go "clubbin" afterwards, so off we went on an impromptu adventure!

I wasn't wearing a costume but I was wearing hose, of course, and it was Halloween weekend so you know I wasn't the only one.  If you don't want to feel singled out for wearing, Halloween is definitely a time to wear hose.  Even I was shocked at the saturation level.  Literally every female 20-something had hose on!!  Let me say that again for emphasis... I am serious... EVERY female had hose on.  So yes, now I know why you guys want to go out on Halloween.  It was truly a sight to see, the girls were beautiful, many of the costumes were amazing and I really enjoyed seeing all the young people dancing and we jumped right in there with them because, believe it or not, we like to dance too!!

So now, the other side of the story.  I still don't like Halloween.  I know everyone is just having a little fun, and I did too, it was a really great night out, a rare Saturday night when we stayed up well past midnight and didn't fall asleep on the couch hoping to make it through a full episode of Saturday Night Live.  But I don't like the image portrayed by the girls in their costumes, regardless of how much fun they were having.  Slutty Witch, Slutty Nurse, Slutty Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.  Put on pantyhose and add the prefix "slutty" to the name of your costume.  It's degrading to the girls, but they're just having a little fun.  They won't be wearing hose once they get back to work or school on Monday morning.  The problem is, I feel degraded for wearing, because I wear pantyhose everyday and I never want to put that prefix in front of my name.  That's how I feel about the Halloween hose fix.

So you see, I am so obsessive over pantyhose I can't even enjoy the one weekend per year that everyone seems to be wearing them.  No one ever said this hose obsession of mine was going to be a joy ride, but I did enjoy myself, it was a really fun weekend.

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