Why we love spandex

Postby DynamicTorque » Thu Jun 01, 2017 12:20 am

We don't need to cover the obvious answer....the shiny-smooth texture, the tight fit, how it looks on a woman's body, how it feels, how it accentuates features, etc...that's pretty much a given. Let's delve further.

The term fetish has a perverted ring to it, it conjures up thoughts of perversions, shameful desires, disgusting notions and being deviant in a manner that would be less then acceptable. I don't think anyone likes the moniker....it's far easier to say you have a 'thing for spandex', an appreciation of it or you find it very fascinating. We assume any parent wouldn't want their kid around us any sooner then a drug dealer or child molester....but wtf, we just like spandex, is that REALLY so deviant or socially awkward? Personally, when I'm scouring through YouTube for videos related to spandex and I stumble across some video of a young gymnast seeing how many leotards she can try on in less then a minute, I quickly move to another video...I want NOTHING to do with anything other then attractive women. Any thoughts to share on that?

Beyond that, I often find myself wondering why....just why...do I love wearing spandex so much? I'm fairly certain my own wearing it is simply relates to an associative tangible effect of wearing something I've come to admire so much on women. My own desire to wear it has almost exceeded seeing it on women...but it evens out at the end of the day being about even. But still, why is it so fulfilling??? Psychology suggest that it's an associated sexual thing and it starts early in life. Indeed, most the stories I've read here suggest that most of us saw or experienced something back in early elementary school. We all have our stories but the commonality is that it seems to have originated in our youth and when our sexual desires were just developing. It's like our sexual desire started growing and the spandex bug got intertwined and got tied into it. Anyone care to really divvy this up and explore just what makes us tick on this level?

This is well written and sums up nicely what probably a lot of us has gone thru over the years and/or had thoughts about our "thing" for spandex. Fetish does bring up negative images about a behavior. But I'm at a point in my life I don't care anymore, anyone can call it what they want. I just know I like wearing it, have been doing it for a long time and it's a totally harmless thing that I like to do in private. For some reason it just feels good. I don't even care to about why, its been ingrained in me since I was real little. No different than a guy preferring blondes over brunettes. If I'm at home watching TV sporting a unitard, so what, who will ever know. I'm totally straight and the one thing I like more than wearing spandex is seeing women in spandex. It's like the greatest invention ever. Whoever invented yoga pants, I want to shake their hand!

Some very good points.

A fetish in the sexual sense, strictly speaking, as I understand it, means something without which you can't get sexually aroused. I'm sure that for many of us, we can get aroused without spandex, it's just that spandex adds something else to the experience, like the icing on the cake? I know I've met women who I wasn't really interested in sexually, but then you'd catch them in some shiny leggings or cycling shorts, and POW!
I also subscribe to the theory it's something that you're exposed to when you're young, because, at least in my experience, it's not an artificial affection. When I see a woman in spandex, it's almost like I can't look away. It has an almost magic attraction to me, which I guess means it must be quite deeply embedded. Wearing spandex is perhaps a way to get closer to that desire.
Everyone has certain things that turn them on. For men who came of age in the 40s and 50s it might be stockings and suspenders, something which I like, but have never felt a very strong desire for. There was a period post war when denim jeans were seen as sexual because it was unusual to see women in tighter fitting trousers, and the seams on jeans really delineate the buttocks and genital area, so some men could hooked on that. Some men like pantyhose, others like short skirts, some like women to be smartly dressed. There's been more of a move with younger women for more androgynous dress, again, nothing for me, but maybe there's a generation of young guys growing up who love that!

What I find strange though is, as a child of the 70s, the earliest memories I have of spandex etc is older girls at school - I must have been 6, earring black leotards for gym, and seeing them and thinking they looked incredible. And my mum used to go to a yoga class dressed in a black leotard and tights. Her friends would drop around before the class and you'd have three or four women in the house chatting about everyday life whilst wearing leotards and tights and to me they'd transformed from my mum's friends into these incredible looking women who I thought looked awesome. This was when I was six or seven. So it wasn't really a sexual response, I was too young for that, but I just remember being entranced by them. So where did that desire come from?

Your point about attractive women, that is obviously down to each of us find attractive. I happened to like fuller figured women in spandex, I know some prefer the classic athletic or lean look. But yes, not interested in girls or young women in spandex!

Speaking of which, if you like classic 80s era spandex, GLOW on Netflix is a must watch!

We have similar stories. I love lycra leggings on girls from when I was 10-15 years old. Girls wore them in my school and in free time and I begin to love this leggings then.
And it is the same on me like one guy said before. This leggings makes one not so much attractive women to me attractive. I specially think this leggings makes sooo much hotter women which are 40-55 age. Girls 20-29 don't look so attractive with this leggings like those 30-55.

I just don't like that some gay males wear lycra leggings and show them, because maybe because of that other people think that if you like lycra leggings then you maybe like also men. But in my case this is totaly not true. I love only girls.

I'm really happy to see some people responded to this thread...for a while there I was afraid the forum was just full of lurker perv's and people who don't think much. I think most of us are on the same page with our thoughts and origins. I often wonder if I'll ever burn-out or get tired of wearing spandex and noticing a world of others wearing spandex...but no, it never seems to fade or become boring. Over the last year I've become less and less concerned about what others may think. What I've come to experience is that women are entirely nonjudgmental and unassuming...they're the first to say "wear whatever you like wear what's comfortable, wear what you prefer...and who cares what anyone else will think". If anything, it seems to be our brethren who'll look at us with that odd "wtf are you wearing and why"...but even that gets old and dismissed once they get to know you or just get over it.

My local gym is closing and it's almost frustrating to report that after 10 years of wearing just a triathlon suit in spin class (twice a week, 2 classes back to back)...I've NOT ONCE had anyone comment, compliment, criticize or make any dialog directed at my choice of attire. It's a gym, it's a place of fitness and the outfit works for the activity: end of story. Honestly, I was always hoping that some gal would enjoy seeing a guy in spandex as much we enjoy seeing a gal in spandex...but no, to them it's merely clothing and on account of this they can't even conceive the notion of someone 'enjoying' wearing spandex for any gratifying reason. It's almost alarming how we perceive and project our worlds based almost exclusively on our own thoughts and perspective.

One other thing to mention. I spend a lot of time at a 10-acre property I own where we have a rental listed on Airbnb. We have guest coming almost every week and quite often I'll have come from the gym and still have my spandex peering out from under my shirt. I routinely greet guest, show them around and generally just mention that I came from the gym to explain/excuse my attire: to date NOBODY has cared, they just shrug and say no problem. The one interesting thing I do know is that women will almost always glance, look or even stare a bit....maybe it's the sporty logo or perhaps they just enjoy the snug fit...but I do suspect that gals seem to enjoy, to some extent, when we adorn the spandex that generally is reserved for only gals to wear on a casual basis.

Hey what's up Dynamic spandex King! Great post and I do get how women do take a second look. But why would it be any different from them in the gym versus outside in a normal setting? Hmmm ya know what I've seen women look at me in spandex at the gym and some who just don't give a shit! Hahaha in the end ya never know what they think and as long as you wear what you want and happy then who cares. When I'm in the gym doing leg day with leggings even dudes don't seem to care or mind so ya know what I'll keep wearing them. Lastly it's true that we project our own thoughts into what others are thinking when in reality it could be the total opposite! 😜😀😀

Lastly forgot to mention there was a post on Facebook or the Internet of cops from either Sweden or Finland or some other Scandinavia country who were wearing just spandex shorts and the typical policeman top and gear and the comments on women were like men. Horny and down right good I was so surprised but pleased!

You know the funny thing....it's not what we think, it's not what they think...it's what we think they are thinking. If we walk by some group of gals and as we pass we hear some snickering, the arrogant guy things they're admiring him, the insecure guy thinks they're laughing at him and in reality they may be snickering over some unrelated comment that one of the other gals said and we were never on their radar.

Perfect example, some time ago I went to Sharkey's to get lunch after a workout...I had on a long shirt with my spandex on the bottom. Nothing was really showing or looking overtly wrong but the shorts had the brand name along the leg gripper and the fabric/pattern almost looked like underwear. Some gal standing next to me was looking at my shorts and had a smirky-smile on her face. I was figuring she was liking or admiring what she saw...but weeks later some friends pointed-out that it truly looks like underwear and in hindsight I now realize she must have thought I had forgotten my shorts and was rolling around in just undie's. My story went from "some chick was checking me out" to "some chick was amused that I was wearing underwear". Point is, my 'reality' was based on what I thought she was thinking....

I couldn't figure out how to multi-quote so I'm hitting this separately. Yeah, funny thing....we're sometimes led to believe that women love it when men wear spandex and other times we hear them bitching about how men should NOT wear spandex. It's definitely mixed reviews and it probably goes back to how good-looking the guy is and how fit his body is. I mean, nobody wants to see some fat chick stuffed into spandex...so why should some overweight couch-blob expect chicks to get excited over his shiny mess?

The delineating factor is that these gals are really admiring the body...what's under the spandex. In my opinion it's not the tight, shiny fabric but rather what's being revealed underneath. That's the odd thing about us guys, we want to get some hot chick into spandex and get all intimate with her while she wearing it. The typical guy wants the girl to get naked when they hit the bedroom. It's a complicated thing for certain.
