Dressing up for sex is one of those things which still remains a slightly taboo subject. I often wonder why these things are not more openly discussed in today’s society.
Let us break the taboo and get the saucy stockings out in the open for all to see (I don’t mean this literally of course!).
The thing with dressing up for sex is that it is often though to be solely for the benefit of the man. This is far from the truth.
Obviously the man finds a woman who has dressed for sex very appealing but why is this? There is an element of psychology to this question but I wont bore you with that.
Before we begin to look at this properly I want to point out that this is about dressing up, not role play/fantasy/fetish. For the purpose of this blog I want you to think of dressing up in terms of sexy lingerie, Stockings, Suspenders etc. We will cover the other topics in future posts.
The big thing with dressing for sex is anticipation! Imagine waking up on Christmas day to find none of the presents are wrapped, it works in the same way. Yes your partner may know exactly what every inch of your body looks like (he damn well should do!) but it is still fun to unwrap the gift!
Men also like to know that you have made an effort for them. We all know how the male ego works (and often how big it can be) and every now and then this ego needs massaging. I think even the guys reading this would have to agree!
Dressing up for sex can also help to revive a stale relationship. Adding a little spice to a relationship can be like a breath of fresh air for your partner.
From the point of view of a woman, dressing up for sex can be a little daunting at first. This is often forgotten when the look of pure animal hunger is seen in the eyes of their partner.
The other reason women should try dressing up at least once is how it makes you feel. As long as there is no pressure from the man, dressing up can make a woman feel more sexy than usual. The first time is often the most awkward, however the rewards are often great (mind blowing sex) which makes it more pleasurable the second, third and fourth time around.
As you can see, the benefits of dressing up for sex are there for both of you. As with everything it has to be something you both enjoy or there is just no point.
The only advice i can give on this subject is to try it. You don’t know until you try and you have nothing to lose but so much to gain!
