When I think of pantyhose, I think of grandmothers wearing their church clothes, the misguided fashion sense present in most corporate office parks and how weird it is that you can buy packages of them at drugstores. But if conducting these “That’s My Fetish” interviews has taught me anything (besides how hot it can be to see a woman pump her car’s brakes), it’s that we all associate with seemingly random objects very differently. So for every “yuck” response to the notion of a woman wearing pantyhose comes (or better put, cums) a “yum” from the men who find this particular type of hosiery insanely sexy.
No one knows this better than porn performer/producer Ashley Sinclair. Earlier this year, she launched Nylons4K, a pantyhose and lingerie-themed adult site. Her inspiration was a simple case of supply-and-demand. “When I began making custom clips for my clients, tons of guys asked me for pantyhose and nylons content,” she tells me. “These guys are super specific about what they like. In fact, many of my clients can look at a photo or video I post and know what brand I’m wearing. A lot of guys also ask me to wear the dark tan, shiny pantyhose worn by the waitresses at Hooters.”
“They always want to see my feet, too,” Sinclair continues. “They always want to see me touching my hands against the pantyhose as well. There’s some submissive guys who want to worship my feet and the pantyhose, or who want to be humiliated by getting the pantyhose stuffed in their mouths. Some guys just think pantyhose are sexy and want to see my ass in them. Others want me to masturbate while in the pantyhose — both by slipping my hand underneath them and rubbing myself over them. Once in a while, someone asks me to rip them open in a custom video, but when I do, I make sure they buy me a new pair first.”
Among Sinclair’s biggest fans is Derek, a 44-year-old educator from Chicago, who was kind enough to talk to me about why such sheer, seemingly static material gets him — and his fellow pantyhose fetishists — off. Here’s what he had to say…
I first realized pantyhose turned me on in my 30s, but my first erotic experiences with them began about three years ago. That’s when I first saw a picture of Ashley Sinclair in a pair of white thigh-high pantyhose. I loved the way her legs looked in them and felt really aroused. After that, I began camming with her regularly.
Overall, I love the way a woman’s legs look in pantyhose. I feel like they make a woman’s legs much more defined. I also enjoy wondering whether or not a woman is wearing panties with her pantyhose. Also, I love the feel of pantyhose. Smooth and silky does it for me.
I’m not sure why my interest in pantyhose began in my 30s, but my guess is that it’s because I began having more experience in the business world. There’s nothing better than seeing a beautiful, extremely successful business woman in a pair of Wolford pantyhose. (Wolford is my favorite brand because I know that’s what Ashley likes to wear.)
When you and your friends talk about sex, do you ever mention your pantyhose fetish?
No. I’m not open about my pantyhose fetish with my friends. It’s more of a personal thing.
Have you ever asked a girlfriend, lover or date to wear pantyhose and explore this fetish with you?
I’ve asked a girlfriend to wear pantyhose, but we never explored my sexual interest in them in the way that I do with Ashley. It was enough of a turn-on to just see my girlfriend wearing them. Now that I’m a little older, I’d love to explore this fetish more with a partner, but honestly, the custom videos Ashley makes for me allows me all of the satisfaction I need.
What sort of things do you request in your custom clips?
The majority of them include her wearing a sexy dress and a pair of pantyhose. I’ve bought her a few dresses and pairs of pantyhose, so she’ll usually wear those in the clips. I love to see her dance and do a striptease, too. The way she dances is what makes me feel like I’m there with her. Her body is amazing, but it looks even more incredible when she’s wearing pantyhose. After dancing, she starts masturbating. There’s nothing sexier than seeing Ashley making herself cum while she wears black pantyhose.
Another scenario we’ve explored is this idea that I come home early from a trip and catch her in the middle of getting dressed, when she’s completely naked except for the pantyhose.
One of my favorite custom clips features Ashley in the corner of her bedroom getting dressed. She has on a pair of black thigh-high stockings and black panties. Next, she puts on a sexy gray and black dress and black high heels. We were supposed to go out for date night, but instead, she climbs on the bed and suggests we have a little fun first. She turns on some music and starts to dance while slowly removing her dress. She continues to dance until she notices how turned on I am. She is too and suggests we masturbate together. We continue until both of us orgasm at the same time. Amazing.
Do you consider your pantyhose obsession part of a larger foot fetish?
No, I don’t have a foot fetish. I fetishize legs more than feet. Pantyhose really accentuate toned, fit legs.
Say you’re at a department store. Can you pass the hosiery display without becoming turned on?
Oh, I can absolutely pass a display without getting turned on.
Do you ever like wearing a pair of pantyhose?
Haha, no. Not my thing.
You mentioned wondering about whether or not a woman is wearing panties with her pantyhose. Do you have a preference either way?
My curiosity regarding whether or not women pair their pantyhose with panties is the same as wondering if women wear underwear with certain kinds of dresses. When I see a beautiful woman wearing a skirt or dress, I always find myself trying to guess if they have underwear on. I get turned on when women don’t wear any underwear at all. I’ve always found it sexy when I’m being intimate with a date and discover they aren’t wearing underwear once I slide my hand under their skirt — pantyhose or not. Ashley and I have talked a lot about what kind of outfits she wears panties with and what kind she doesn’t. I love trying to guess when I see her post pictures. I do, though, like it best when she isn’t wearing them.
