Kink Dictionary – Pantyhose/Stockings
What are Pantyhose/Stockings?
Pantyhose and stockings are hosiery that cover the legs and sometimes the feet. They are made of various materials, including nylon, silk, and cotton. Pantyhose are a one-piece garment that cover both the legs and the waist, while stockings are separate garments that cover just the legs and require a garter belt or suspenders to hold them up.
Why are Pantyhose/Stockings a Fetish?
Pantyhose and stockings are often fetishized due to their association with femininity and sexuality. The smooth, silky texture of the material can be a turn-on for some people, as well as the way they accentuate the curves of the legs. Additionally, the act of putting on or taking off pantyhose or stockings can be a sensual experience for both the wearer and their partner.
Types of Pantyhose/Stockings
Nylon is the most common material used for pantyhose and stockings. It is stretchy, lightweight, and has a smooth, shiny finish that is popular among fetishists.
Silk is a luxurious material that is often used for high-end pantyhose and stockings. It has a soft, silky feel and a subtle sheen that is both elegant and sexy.
Cotton is a breathable, comfortable material that is often used for everyday wear. While not as popular among fetishists, cotton pantyhose and stockings can still be a turn-on for some people.
Ways to Incorporate Pantyhose/Stockings into Play
The most obvious way to incorporate pantyhose or stockings into play is to wear them. This can be done as part of a lingerie ensemble or on their own. Some people enjoy the feeling of the material against their skin, while others like the way they look on their partner.
For some people, the act of ripping pantyhose or stockings can be a turn-on. This can be done as part of a BDSM scene or as a spontaneous act of passion.
Because pantyhose and stockings cover the feet, they can be a focal point for foot fetishists. Some people enjoy worshipping their partner’s feet while they are wearing pantyhose or stockings.
