Pantyhose! Pantyhose! Pantyhose!

Everybody has a hobby. Mine is collecting images of pantyhose packages, as well as pantyhose ads from magazines and catalogs. (geocities, NSFW? Guess.) We've previously discussed vintage skivvies for men here, but the gallery of packages is kind of interesting. Or maybe you just Hate Pantyhose.

Yeeesh... those geocities sites go down quick. Sorry, that's why I posted it on a Saturday afternoon, you people are supposed to have lives. Well here, here's a link I didn't post: Vintagepantyhose.com. That'll have to do until the other site comes back up.

Sheesh...the site creator couldn't even spell Joe Namath's last name correctly...how does he expect us to take him seriously on the subject of pantyhose?!

Huh? The Geocities site has a seemingly strong aversion to stockings, placing them in the same disclaimer as pornography, while the vintagepantyhose.com site is all for them. Er ... I have no life.

Got onto the Strom Thurmond and US Writers in Cultural Battle sites with one click. The pantyhose site? Unavailable due to overload. You bunch of sickies.
Me, i'm of the hate pantyhose category...even when i was still young and so slender that the most petite size came up to my armpits, the darn things felt like constrictive torture devices of doom. i didn't realize that there was such a thing as an actual pantyhose fetish until i was googling for some excercise videos by cynthia kereluk, afer lifetime cancelled her show. the first 17,596 hits i got back were folks buying, sellling and trading pantyhose pix of cynthia - no shoes in this she wears sheer from tummy to toe nylons!

I recently noticed in passing that there is a (most assuredly not safe for work or anywhere else really) p0rn site devoted to this fetish, as there is for pretty much anything these days I guess : pantyhoseface.com.

"One step beyond in your fantasies about nylon clad women. One final step to logically complete your dreams about pantyhosewearing girls. You feel that just wearing pantyhose on legs, however good, is not enough to show the admiration by this part of women’s clothes we all stick our fantasies to. When you see a woman putting pantyhose over her head your heart skips a bit and pulse stops. Now you’re sure that she surrendered to the same pantyhose fantasies that make you sleepless."

Each to their own, I guess. They really need a copy editor, though.

So many flat asses. Sad. The goony-cheap seventies typography makes up for it however.

I am not a fan of pantyhose. It's a rare pair that I can wear more than once without them ripping or running.
