Generally I will buy and wear men's or unisex spandex bike shorts, tights, capris, shirts, etc. from companies such as Under Armour, etc. However, if I see spandex that is intended for women, but can be passed off as unisex, I will get those as well. Recently, I purchased 2 pairs of NordicTrack polyester/lycra tights from Sears in the womenswear section of the store. On sale, too (they discounted them so low I paid $10 for both pairs! Whoo-hoo!). One was black with white stripe and multi-colored reflective stripe on the sides; the other was dark blue with royal blue stripe and mc reflective stripe. The lady at the checkout counter handled the purchase like it was nothing at all, and my wife upon seeing me in the pants thought that I looked great in them. Even though they are gusseted, it wasn't and isn't an issue with anyone. If I wear them in public I will hide the gusset. If not then no one will know or care. So, if they look unisex, then yes I will get them, whether they are intended for women only or not. Floral prints, swimsuits and such, however, are not an interest of mine.

Great topic. ;)

It is pretty much 100% women's spandex for me. I love leotards, unitards, one-piece swimwear, and tights/stockings the best and I find it very erotic. I wear the men's stuff sometimes, for practical reasons like sports, but I don't find it arousing at all. I got interested in spandex at a very young age, it evolved into full on drag for awhile. I wish I could say it is just a casual interest, but I have had some gender identity issues over the years. I quit altogether and got rid of all my drag clothes, wigs and lingerie and got married about 5 years ago. After awhile though, the spandex fetish came back big time so I do spandex only and in private now. Wife is okay with it, and wears it for me sometimes, but I have never worn it with her...feels weird.

I can totally relate to the feeling of guilt after orgasm and then be back in the spandex a week, day or even hours later. Pity I got rid of some really great pieces in guilt purges over the years. I have come to pretty good grips with it lately, have a nice collection going and keeping a healthy balance. I just store them out-of-sight and out-of-mind when I am not in the mood for it. Overall, spandex is a much easier interest to manage, than doing drag or gender identity counseling, and it is very satisfying!! :D

Hey I can't blame anybody for not doing drag as it's not an easy road nor an inexpensive activity, and certainly not for everyone. I got so sick of shaving that I have had a full beard ever since I quit! Good grief my friends and I party'ed like rock stars though, have to say it was a lot of fun while I did it. That said, I was ready to quit when I did. You lose all of your credibility of being 'straight' that is for sure. I don't live with any regrets, I wanted to do it and I did it! Saw some crazy ass stuff that I will never forget. :?

I'm not really into guy's spandex at all. Only women's spandex will do. I love bikini swimsuits as well as 1pc/bodysuits. I've also been getting out more and more in public in cloths like the spandex disco pants or minidresses. It's been turning into a total addiction for me. I now have a wardrobe in which I could go for more than 4 months without wearing the same outfit twice.
All hot women should be in shiny spandex. So I'm getting changed into one so I can show off my wardrobe fulltime!

Boy I love wearing my lycra attire! :) The gender based thing is false because all lycra clothes are really unisex. :)

Leotards were originally made just for men, but, somehow ladies wore them too, then came companies saying that leotards are for women, overtaking the original purpose for the garment. It's always been a marketing failure that has been recently detected as late as I believe 2009.

So the next time you wear a leotard, think that it's not just for ladies, but, really for us men too! :)

Whether people say certain lycra attire I wear is for men or ladies, I just wear it loudly and proudly because it's unisex as I knew all along! I wear it anyway I feel like it! :) For exercise, swimming, dance, laying out, sports, and alot more! :)

Yeah, I'll go ahead and take a crack at this....

First-off, the forum is about the Power of WOMEN in spandex and you'll find several refences about keeping the stories relevent to women and not describing men & spandex.

Secondly, the few of us active members generally had our start secretly wearing spandex that was feminine...but today we've evolved to continue admiring women in spandex and more so relating to them by wearing spandex ourselves...but the spandex we wear is generally designed, made and intended for men: triathlon suits, wrestling singlets, running tights, jammers, cycling shorts. It's not my forum per se, but I really don't like seeing a cross-dresser peddle his antics here.

Next, the leotard was invented by some guy who was an acrobat and the garment carries his name-sake...but the leotards he wore were almost short-legged wrestling singlets, hardly the high-legged, V-shape shiny-tight garments that have prevailed as women's gear today.

Conclusively, yes...you can argue that fabric is fabric and how can it be gender specific. Scottish men wear skirts and whose to say what pattern, design and shape a male or female garment is.........but yeah, today's leotard is cut to highlight the beautiful shape of a women's body whereas IT LOOKS RIDICULOUS AND UNFLATTERING on a man, especially and in particularly a men who is fat, out of shape and heavy-set. Dude, I couldn't drink, sniff, snort or shoot my way into digging your avatar...that shit is wrong in every way. I mean, .yellow & gray? Shit.....

There are social norms and you've more then crossed the boundaries. You may be straight, hetero and even a nice guy...but in that outfit 99.9% of society would label you a cross-dresser and I for one don't appreciate your bringing your freakshow to this forum and making the rest of us feel like people like yourself are part of our thing. You write like you've got it all figured-out and have it together but that fascade ain't worth the text you dribbled. You'll find no santuary here and please do not pm me with some lengthy explanation. Again, this forum is about women in spandex and perhaps a bit how some of us have assimilated spandex into our lives...but not crossdressing men. Because, DAMN!!!!

Well Torque,

That's your opinion and you're entitled to it, also, you can keep saying that opinion to yourself! What you said is very offensive to me, but, to anybody that would do the same thing as me! But, I'm not moved or hurt by your rude words at all!

Who are you to tell people what to wear, and you don't know me, I'm not fat and out of shape, and even if I was, I'd still wear what I please. I have as much a right to post here as you do and everybody else, being that I haven't and never intend to do anything wrong on here.

I hope my words to you will knock some sense into you.

Chris:

I think DT has a big point. I don't know if he meant to offend you or otherwise, but your avatar can be considered out of bounds with this forum. DT's avatar has him in one of his tri suits, though this is a forum for women in spandex, but it's more gender-appropriate, and his face is cut off. I, on the other hand, have an avatar of my head in a zentai. Again, gender-appropriate despite the board's aims. My identity is obscured. However, you're in a yellow leotard flaunting yourself. I can't tell if you have tights on or not, but you're displaying yourself in all your glory, including being open with your identity. Despite what you say, you do look a bit rolly-polly.

Now, I'm not saying you shouldn't wear a leotard the way you do. It's your preference, and since the ladies in your class don't mind you wearing your dancewear the way you do, you're OK. My yoga teacher put a kibosh on my wearing unitards in her classes because she said it was a distraction to the other students. She didn't ban me from wearing any spandex, just as long as it is thick enough not to expose my butt. I just think you might need to tone down your enthusiasm about wearing spandex.
Zentai wearer since 2002, spandex wearer since 1988. ゼンタイ RULES!

Guys, read the thread title. Chris, thank you for telling us how you wear your spandex and being honest. I think DT should be banned from not only this thread but this entire site. 90% of your posts are about you and your silly tri suits. Nobody cares about your tri-suits dude. You are so quick to offend other members of this forum. Go fuck yourself.

Why don't you stop using this alias and use your original s/n....Monkeyboy, it's absurdly obvious that it's you, you're not fooling anyone. No doubt you can relate to this yellow-leotard clown.

It's bad enough we had to endure your antics and pictures of your women's swimsuit clad ass...not to mention your elaborate descriptions of how masturbating in a spandex-sleeve was the best....you're just as disgusting if not more so then this tool. Seriously, GO FUCK YOURSELF you little perverted freak. You were the one who gave rise to "Forum rules
Pornographic descriptions of male masturbatory actions are not permitted. "

I mean, I get it...the both of you see women in their one piece bathing suits and leotards and you so badly want to feel part of it that you wear the stuff to emulate it. Do it in your own bedroom, nobody wants to see either of you crossdressing and looking perverted and ridiculous. And for the record, my contributions span well beyond talking about my tri-suits and what not. So yeah, sorry guys...this site is about women in spandex and we tangent about how we acceptiably integrate it into our waredrobe....but pictures of yourselves wearing women's clothing....take it somewhere else!!!


DT, I'm not a licensed psychotherapist, but I think it's safe to say you're delusional. Kilatron had mentioned months ago that I am not MB. With that being said, more than half of your previous post that I have reluctantly quoted above is completely invalid because you're referring to things MB discussed. I think you are insecure about something(maybe your personality) and stressed out in life(your personality negatively affecting your life), therefor, it makes you feel better to offend other people. I feel sorry for the people that know you in real life. Where do you get off on ridiculing other men wearing spandex and having their avatar depict that, and yet you have done the same thing? Ok, I get that some spandex is designed and cut for men, and, well let's face it, most of it is cut for women. You mentioned that HS and college athletes wear tri suits. Do you fit into either one of those categories? Yeah, I didn't think so. I have never seen any man wear a tri suit at 24 hr fitness. I guarantee you the people at the gym, men and women, that see you wearing that thing are intrigued by it, but its disgusted and this guy's a wierdo sort of way. Because let's face it, it's not normal to see a guy at a public gym wearing a tri suit. Maybe you work out at the high-school with all those other boys in their tri suits. But hey, I'm sure that wearing your spandex is a way of peacocking because your personality doesn't get you far. Ok, now I'm really dizzy. ;)

Moving forward. I have been with my girlfriend for 2 years. She is totally ok with my enjoy of wearing spandex. She tells me to wear it, and as a favor, wears it as well. What she doesn't really care for is me visiting this site and looking at other women wearing spandex. Their are many men out there that enjoy wearing spandex. For you to ridicule that is completely childish. Do they need to let the whole world know? No. Should they feel comfortable discussing it on a spandex fetish website? I'll let you answer that one pal. I already know your answer though. It's blah blah blah blah blah blah look at me in my tri suit blah blah blah blah etc.... It's a shame that you don't accept that there are many types of people in this world with all sorts of interests. And by the way Delusional Toy (DT), it's freakin' 2011. Wake up and smell the diversity. Now I agree with you to a small extent, some fetishes are weird, but I don't spit in that person's face and tell them that they are weird.

Chris - You're welcome. I'm sorry you have experienced this type of bullying here. Wear it proud and wear it loud. Don't let this immature little bitch get to you.

Tron - Thank you for this wonderful website. My girlfriend doesn't have to know about me visiting it as often as I do. :D

MB - Oh wait, nevermind, that's me. hahahahahahahaha j/k. Where are you at?

Long Live Spandex!!!! and tri-suits too I guess ;) :roll:

Steve from Woodland Hills, California you really got angry.
Could you be wrong mistaking the post being paranoid of sorts? On another forum I which don't ever registered or partake had a post and believe torque accused the poster as me Mack. At least I know torque you can be wrong on occasion.

BeDitzy,

You're not legit, you came along out of nowhere and supported MB with intimate knowledge of his situation. You write like him, support him as if you know him, take his same views...typical ploy to create an alias who supports you. Having another IP Address is as easy as having your distant boyfriend sign into the site and copy & paste your words. 85% sure you're MB and I really don't care. MB was actually a good guy, while he had a thing for wearing women's one-piece swimsuits as underwear everyday, at least he refrained from his masturbatory commentary and removed an avatar of his ass in an electric blue high-cut women's swimsuit (is that turning you on, do anything for ya?...I bet) :?

Let me try to address you on an adult level and stop the slanderous ridicule.

As for Chris....believe it or not, I'm NOT happy about hurting his feelings. I'll be honest, I was involved in anothe forum where the head bully took his focus on me and it was a horrible feeling...in hindsight I feel bad that I may have done unto someone else the similar thing that was done to me. That should count for something as few people would either take the time to reflect on their actions and acknowledge it.

Words are cheap, so it wouldn't mean anything if I told you that I own & run a very successful business, own a huge home, vacation home and have several vehicles...one of which is a Ferrari. As for psychology, we all have our issues, but I'm far from delusional (except for my strong belief that the calories that come from chocolate don't count). My "issue" with Chris is that he's openly portraying an avatar which is unacceptable by the guidelines of this forum. If you don't like the forum, you can leave...but it is clearly stipulated that this forum is about Women in spandex and in several areas it is made abundantly clear that stories, pictures and anything related to men wearing spandex is discouraged. There is no arguing that Chris violated that; forum policy is clear.

Where is my passion in "attacking" lovely Chris? Well...to analyze:

So far as I know, all of us here are straight...and yet we all despise and hate when our interest in spandex unfairly clumps us into the category of being homosexual...or worse, some kind of child-molesting pervert. I very much do not like the assocation of being part of any group that is considered perverted, illegal, criminal or of a freakshow nature. Before you calculate your retort, why don't you give that some serious thought. It's not too unlike the many peaceful, friendly and nice Muslims who equally hate being clumped into being terrorist bent on strapping bombs onto children.

Now. forum policy should be enough and it need not be explained or defended...but to explain my personal issue, Chris entirely portrays the kind of spandex fetishist that I don't want to be clumped with. He's loud, he's proud, he's promoting his crossdressing position and he's clearly wearing a leotard that was absolutely designed, cut, manufactured, sold and fully intended to be slid onto a women's beautiful curvaceous body. I guarantee you he didn't find it in the men's section of a catelog...and before you go scurring-off to find a website that has a pic of a guy in a similar leotard, you'll notice it's a gay website...which just further goes to substantiate the connection between men who wear spandex and homosexuality. In short, Chris is flamboyantly being the very type of person I least want to be associated with. Using the Muslim analogy, I'm the peaceful Muslim who is upset with the Muslim who is calling for death to all non-Muslims and encouraging terrorism.

I will concede, my problem with Chris is MY problem....I don't want to be assimilated with, part of or feel like this kind of activity & behavior is part of what I'm into...just as I don't want to be associated with gays, child molestors, animal abusers or any of the other freakshows that we are clumped with. I've gone to great lengths to be able to feel comfortable about the spandex I wear and not feel like I'm a perv...and Chris rocks that boat loud & hard. I will apologize for hurting his feelings, but I won't apologize for my position.

Now, beyond that....you're confused. My avatar happens to be an Addidas Response-2 wrestling singlet....an outfit that tens of thousands of wrestlers have worn. It's FAR from being a yellow thong leotard. I've actually seen a few guys wearing a singlet around the gym but I agree, it's quite infrequent....and so my singlet-wearing is done in the privacy of my own home gym where my former female personal trainer loved them and even helped me pick some on the Internet. The wrestling singlet was designed, manufactured, cut and intended for MEN; end of story.

In so far as the gym...yes, I do wear a tri-suit...but I wear a shirt over the suit and it looks like cycling shorts with a top: nobody even so much as looks at me funny. In spin class, once the lights go down, I've removed my shirt. I never did this until the majority of people in the class knew me and see me running 5k on the treadmill and swimming a mile in the pool along with my cycling; the tri-suit clearly serves a purpose and much like Mack, I'm in good-enough condition such that I can pull it off. I'm not looking like a freak and you're dead wrong to suggest other gym members are looking at me funny. I am respected, liked and nobody feels uncomfortable around me. I have NEVER met a gal who okay with a guy being dressed like Chris...that picture looks like a drunk Puerto Rican at a Halloween party....which is about the ONLY day a guy can wear such a ridiculous get-up and not be labeled a freak. My gear is made for men, his gear is made for women who are in great shape. And speaking of shape, I do a full spin class, run 2 miles on the T-mill, take a 2nd spin class and then swim a mile....3.25 hours of cardio and I can move iron like the muscle-heads....look at my avatar, like Mack I'm a machine and I've earned the privelege to wear spandex. I'll spare the analysis of Chris.

In so far as my participation on this forum, I've had several pm's from various members who have thanked me for all my writing...I've helped a lot of people understand why they wore their mom's leotard when they were young and several people even joined this forum on account of finding some of what I wrote. I may be passionate about my position, but I love spandex and I want to wear it without feeling like I'm a sicko.

If you get what I'm saying and where I'm coming from....that's great. If you don't get it at this point, I couldn't explain it to ya. I will apologize to Chris for hurting his feelings. I think his claim that he'll take down this website gives us a glimpse into his mental integrity. Deep down, he knows he's freakshowing it and it probably never occurred to him that it'd tug at serious mental strings with others. There are plenty of people who agree with me and are supportive, but they don't want to get in the mix. In fact, Chris was brought to my attention by another member who wanted him tamed/censored.

In the end, if you wear your spandex in a manner that is offensive to me and 99.9% of society, I'm going to exercise my right to say something. I'm well within social norms, can't say the same for Chris.

Mack,

You've several times made reference to me as being "Steve". I work in an office out of Woodland Hills (actually, West Hills). Anyone can look-up an IP-address and this particular Internet connection, I guess, is registered to someone named Steve. Your attempt to reveal my identity is trivial, pointless and kinda creepy. On another forum we back-tracked the IP addy to some guy named Bob and we started calling the troll by that name to freak him out. The troll would later mellow and we met him a year later while, of all things, off-roading...his name was Scott. Whatever.

You and I have had our disagreements...but we've always maintained a mutual respect and understanding for each other. Yeah, I got upset...but my previous post well explains it. In short, it rattles my cage when someone crossdressing comes along and says "I'm part of your thing". But yes, I'm sometimes (and even often) wrong...but again, whatever.

I have nothing to hide. I passionately wear cycling shorts, cycling bibs, running tights, jammers, wrestling singlets, triathlon suits and other spandex-based garments that were made and intended for men. I've nothing to be embarrased or ashamed of. When you're next in L.A. give me a shout...I live a bit closer to Studio City, we can go for a bike ride, check-out Venice beach and laugh over a drink. I'm right here.

I've made the best peace I can with Chris. My issue with him is my issue, but I'll take a stand on forum policy. I'm often wrong, but not in this case.

Oh geeze, what do you know, a new flame war... and in this sub forum again...

The site rules are in place to maintain the theme of the site in it's purist form. If it were purely my decision, I would say no male avatars of any kind. But at the same time, I know that many people simply want to use their own real photo as an avatar. The problem of course arises because many of the users of this site also get thrills from wearing spandex. Now for some, that thrill is enhanced when they get a response from others when they are seen wearing spandex. I don't know how many times Ive been asked for a sub form of sorts, or a thread even, where guys can show off their collections. To that I said fine, lay out your items on a rack, floor, the bed, and take photos of them. Suddenly the appeal of showing off that collection vanished. Anyway, in the attempt to please everyone, someone is inevitably going to get most displeased.

The rules are to prevent any aspect of this site from being a place for men to show themselves off in spandex. The avatar is the only place you can do so and as such, we place limits on exactly what can and can not be in an avatar. It now appears to be time to further define the rules of the avatar. Right now we had a straight forward rule that the avatar can be of yourself, but it may not feature any close ups of any body parts. Chris's avatar was not in direct violation of the rules, but it was enough of an "exhibitionist" nature and did offend a number of forum patrons. As a free service we of course reserve the right to exclude whatever we deem inappropriate. As result, Chris's avatar was removed.

The bottom line, we come here to share photos of women in spandex and talk about anything relating to women in spandex. That is the primary function of this forum.

So, as I mentioned, it is time to redefine exactly what is and is not permitted in an avatar. To that end, I will hear suggestions and such on the matter in the rules thread here.

As for Chris, you are clearly out of line with that last post you made, I should ban you flat out for such an outburst. But I have hope that you will perhaps see the logic behind the rules and be reasonable. We just will not have you using this site as a means to show off your desire to wear women's spandex.

DT, while harsh at times, I have to agree with your overall message. You fight the good fight for men's right to wear spandex. However, when you can clearly see a flame war brewing, don't pour gasoline on it, even if it is premium grade, well thought out fuel. (besides, isn't gasoline bad for lycra fibers?)

Well said Torque:

Maybe it's none of my business but i had issues on another forum from people posing as someone there not, in rouse to have me open up on specific topics.
Maybe my reaction would be different then yours torque, again i'm not you. Sometimes its better to be calm and let them have it. Exposing truth about people trying to fool you or making fun of you in forums, (talking about me) is very annoying makes me angry as well. Especially when they see me at the gym, thinking i'm oblivious to there games of me on the forum. God only knows how many people i see suspect me posting stuff on this forum or others. Partially heard a man talking about me about my clothing at the gym and think he said i may have a fetish on wearing it,while the person listening said, not caring "maybe your right". We make ourselves targets online and in life to criticize when sharing are beliefs or actions or my case experiences. Not difficult for anyone to type words in a browser and find this forum. Wish this forum was closed for people to read unless they registered protects some of us from outsiders who are haters.

I don't need to look up ip addresss or interested on how. I have good instincts and keep that as my tech savvy way of putting the pieces together like a puzzle. Sometimes you can tell if it's someone you know or see on the way they write including there gender.
Surfing looking online for spandex wearing keywords or just finding a forum in training fitness people make honest posts and ask for advice then you get someone flaming them using my name Mack trying to divulge there true identity. Seams to me like a coincidence but don't believe in it. Sometimes people get things wrong and are paranoid when some freak posts a dumb message to discuss, found the conclusion reply comment funny, "Give it a rest, Mack". :lol: :lol: I suppose the poor freak was a bit put off of from the comments and didn't reply back. I should of registered on that forum and gave my two cents worth, but to lazy to do it.

Lot controversy on the avatar but i'm sure i had my share of complaints, if people remembered when i joined this forum. People didn't like it or my honest look of me even though they didn't believe it was. Maybe today people may hate my avatar not making a proper identifying image of me or again some think they really do? Or i'm just to lazy to find the picture of the mack truck grill sizing it down.

If i ever get to LaLa land i probably be at the North Hollywood YMCA i no ;) or down in Diego on Black beach.

Leave you with this link below they say it's leggings but to correct that it's running tights. Although i'm sick can't go to the gym only doing shopping. Seeing lot of chicks in there leather jeggings or tight jeans who have no business in. Talk about elephant legs, it startles me while walking in the aisles coming around the corner in Marshalls but nobody said or looked at me the same way wearing my cigarette tight women jeans, maybe i just look better.

Image Or seeing nice and nasty pair of toned legs in spandex tight short shorts outside running with there baby carriage (wish i had a camera to share what i seen from this asian moma :shock: ) makes me want to workout badly, guess i have do what i can from keeping my mack from rising. :D :D Seen this attractive women in running tights before in the hood thinking she's hiding lot of fat on her thighs how could i've been so wrong? :o Now i'm just envious, wow. Talk about being creepy looked at her while driving in my car at slow rate couldn't keep my eyes off her to the point she stared back at me. Maybe i should go running with her in the hood but i don't know if i could wear this if she would run away from me or not, what you think? Image

Re: How do you wear your lycra? Let's be honest!

Postby BeDizzy » Fri Oct 14, 2011 5:17 pm

How do I wear my spandex? Hmm let's see
Along with my ace bandage around my knee, my ghetto ass sneakers, and my chest sticking out, I like to wear my black spandex biketard. :lol:
^Avatar coming soon, I bet you all can't wait^

OK, although I don't give a spandex-covered gerbals ass about all of your assets (a ferrari hahahaha, who cares) I'd be bummed if you lost all of them in a lawsuit because of you committing a hate crime. Anyways, I will admit that after reading some of chris' other posts and threads he also, like you, has the potential of offending other members of this forum.

Now, about my opinion of men in spandex. Are you ready for this? I think a juiced up meathead looks completely repulsive in any type of spandex, as do chubsters. You don't have the right body for it. I'm not saying you don't take care of your body, you're just too bulked up for public wearing imo. I don't discriminate and I keep those knee-jerk, irrational opinions to myself, but I think it's safe to say this response was warranted. Even if it's a biketard with a label on it, made up of a poly blend or whatever. You should go for more the t-shirt with the arms cut out down to the waistband of the shirt look.....much more douchebag-like, it would match your personality well. Ok, I don't really know you and that might be a false accusation. But with the pages and pages of your posts on here and how you turn the discussion back to being about you, I think you might be guilty as charged.

So, If you'd like to keep this spirited discussion or "flame war" going, I'm game. Just try to hold back on the highly inaccurate assumptions about this, that and the other.
With that said, your last post has marginally decreased my amount of disrespect towards you somehow. In the end you might turn out to be an alright person, keep working on it buddy.

I will wrap this up with this hottie in her grey "tri-suit"

Postby DynamicTorque » Sat Oct 15, 2011 3:14 am

Killa.....well said and right to the point. I apologize for throwing high-octane gas on the flame war....but you gotta admit, with his telling us to suck his d!ck and conveying his eternal damnation of our soul and all his infantile antics, it was kinda hard to resist.

Mack...you never cease to amuse & amaze me, wezza good. -Steve

BeDiz...well I have to admit a few things. I rather felt I threw-up the white flag but your last post didn't hesitate to rip right into me with more hatred, despise and slanderous remarks. You're pretty good but you really need to step-up your game if you ever want to be truly ruthless. FWIW, the ace bandage was because I had torn my posterior menicus ...it happened while playing racquetball. The shoes....New Balance 456's, just some basic shoes for the gym, far from flashy. As for my chest, it's been 50" for a long time, it's just my build...I really don't push iron that hard and for the love of spandex, it's a wrestling singlet; Say what you will of me but please respect the spandex!!! 8-)

Oh...and I'd be remiss if I didn't address your assessment that I don't have the body to wear spandex. :o Honestly, credit to you...I'm glad you don't have an appreciation or fondness for men in spandex (or men's bodies in general)...I find comfort that you don't like what you see when you look at me...but then again, your comment was merely intended to rattle my cage from the depths of my spandex interest. I've had more then enough positive feedback from women to ever question myself on that call. FWIW, since that pic I've leaned-out and traded some muscle for less bulk and better performance on the bike & run....but dude, seriously...I'm not even the least bit concerned about winning your approval or gaining your respect, at least not until you lose the hositility and slanderous rampage afforded in my direction. Btw, did I mention my tri-suit lately? ;)

Well....perhaps I'm playing into it too much, at the end of your post you offered some peace and proclaimed I just might one day, with hard work and determination, earn your toleration of me. There's hope and promise yet, it'd mean the world to me!!! And also fwiw, I'm now fairly certain you're not MB...the writing style is too different, but it was just strange that you showed-up out of nowhere and it's a common tact for a person to create another s/n and lend support to his other s/n. Kinda seems like you only show-up to hassle me, support MB or Chris, almost makes ya go hmmmm.

I'm willing to further comment that I feel, in hindsight, bad that I was so harsh on Chris. I think I already explained it, but we've all had to face our inner demons when it comes to figuring-out why we crave to wear spandex and the thought that we may be somehow classified as sick, perverted, warped, wrong or even some kind of shiny-material crossdresser. It's the same way we hate when people immediately assume we're homosexual, want to be a woman and dangerous to leave alone with kids.

I want to feel good about my wearing spandex and I want to feel distanced from the negative or perverted connotations....and then Chris comes along blantantly wearing a bright high-cut shiny yellow thong leotard...clearly crossdressing in pure women's garb and pretty much telling us "I'm one of you, brother". It's like when you browse the Spandexman website and see their photo gallery and quickly realize that all the pics are pretty much of gay and CD men....
http://spandexman.com/gallery/main.php

I click out of there and it makes me feel sick to feel that I'm somehow part of this group....and this is what Chris brought to our forum AND it was a clear violation of forum rules. Still, I could have approached him in a less hostile manner...so somebody go find the little fruitbag and tell him to come back, but maybe wear a tri-suit? :D

But how do I wear my spandex?

1) Frequently
2) In a manner that 99% of society finds acceptable
3) In a manner that doesn't offend people
4) In appropriate situations (gym, cycling, swimming, running)
5) Without later feeling as though I made a specticle of myself

It's always my topics that end up with flamewars. I think I'm poison to this forum. If anyone should be banned it should be me, I think.. :?

On the positive side it's good to know it's not iLycra and monkeyboy involved.. :lol:

Maybe the idea of asking people how they wear their lycra was a bad one? I realise the forum is for women in spandex so maybe this topic was a bad idea.
