is a very common fetish involving women’s pantyhose (known as “tights” in the UK). As with many other common fetishes it has been suggested that it first surfaces in early childhood and/or during adolescence. The unique silky sheer aspect is the allure of these items. Many current day males’ fetishistic preferences for pantyhose is related to the fact that they are in virtual direct contact with female genitalia and/or perhaps even more important are the preferred hosiery for most women when skirts and dresses are worn.
Often a lover of this fetish may also engage in stocking fetishism.
