The Lure of Lingerie
By Em Petrova
Men stand in the doorway of Victoria’s Secret and drool over it. They ogle silken garments in your underwear drawer. So what’s the allure of lingerie? I explored this question and here’s what I found.
Women’s bodies are a marvel anyway, but slip into something that leaves—or doesn’t leave—something to the imagination and your man will fall at your feet. It’s like garnishing an already delicious dish. Men love a show, and the visual addition will amp up your sex.
Dressing up for hot sex especially in an established relationship can add new spark to your lives. Reviving your sex life with lingerie is something many couples try—and succeed at. Whether you’re role-playing with costumes or simply sliding into a new negligee, your man will definitely thank you, and you’ll reap the benefits of your creativity.
So what are the top pieces of lingerie? According to a study in “Ask Men” magazine, these are the little bitties that rev their engines:
Chemise—a short, slinky nightie worn with nothing underneath will titillate his senses. Add the tempting treat of you sans panties and the decadent feel of silk or satin and you’re asking for an amazing encounter.
Babydoll—made to enhance a woman’s breasts, these little numbers are just what men want.
Teddy—a garment that opens at the crotch turns every man into a rabid animal. And believe me—you want him to be.
Camisole and Thong—these go together like bread and jam. Give your lover a terrific view of your backside, while still playing peek-a-boo with your other parts.
Push-up Bra, Garter Belts and Stockings—these are erotic accoutrements every man has fantasized about at one time or another. And women, who knew that you could feel so sensuous and powerful in so little?
When writing erotic romance, I often forget about the foreplay that can be achieved by adding a sexy wardrobe to the scene, but now that I’ve spent some time inside a male’s head, I know I’ve got to give my heroes what they want—lingerie!
Do you own any lingerie? If so, what pieces are your favorites? And if not, what would you love to purchase? Personally I’m dying to own a corset. Something about the classic hourglass figure in a racy red color excites me…
