Characterizing Pantyhose Consumerism

Note: These November 2011 survey results are also published on PantyhoseShareClub.net.  Visit our site to review survey results and participate in our latest survey.  New surveys start on the 1st of each month - http://www.pantyhoseshareclub.net/ 

Pantyhose lovers are consumers and, just like anyone else, we spend money on the things we love. But as with other addictions, pantyhose addiction can drive us to over spend or sometimes spend more than we can afford.  The aim of this survey is to identify how our community of hose lovers tend to spend on pantyhose-related purchases and whether or not our collective spending is driven by our addiction to out of control proportions.

SURVEY RESULTS

Total number of respondents = 45

Gender of Respondents


















Age of Respondents


















The survey results show that the bulk of our spending is on apparel purchases. Pantyhose and other clothing items such as shoes, dresses and skirts to be worn with and to compliment our wearing of pantyhose. The majority of us spend nothing on pantyhose entertainment. The survey results show a small propensity to subscribe to a paid pantyhose website on average about 1-month per year, but overall very little of our spending is directed towards entertainment.
The majority of self-proclaimed pantyhose addicts taking our survey indicated that their pantyhose spending is under control and within their financial means. About 20% of us over spend on pantyhose-related purchases, indicative of our obsessive behavior with repsect to pantyhose in general. A very small number within our community (in this case, only 1 survey respondent) are spending beyond their means to satisfy their pantyhose addiction. Unlike drug and gambling addictions which often lead to financially destructive habits, pantyhose addiction does not seem to exhibit the same destructive tendencies within our community.
