A nylon fetish is a sexual interest centered around wearing — or seeing others wear — nylons or pantyhose. People with a nylon fetish are sometimes called nylon fetishists.

Some activities commonly enjoyed by nylon fetishists include:

  • Wearing pantyhose during sexual activity.
  • Having their partner wear pantyhose during masturbation or sex.
  • Watching or engaging in BDSM scenes of humiliation where a male submissive must wear pantyhose or a submissive is gagged by pantyhose.
  • Looking at people wearing pantyhose, either in person or in photographs or videos.
  • Becoming aroused by the sight and sound of pantyhose ripping or tearing.
  • Smelling nylons someone has worn.
  • Ejaculating on nylons or watching others wearing nylons being ejaculated on.

People with a nylon fetish usually have a preference of nylon type. Some such preferences are:

  • Nude, opaque or colored nylons.
  • Stockings, thigh highs or suspenders.
  • With or without garter belts.
  • Modern or vintage nylons.

Additionally, people who get turned on by others wearing nylons may also have preferences such as:

  • Who they want to see wearing them — They may enjoy seeing people of a particular gender, age or body type wearing nylons.
  • What clothing the nylons are paired with — They may enjoy seeing people dressed up for the office or wearing casual skirts with nylons underneath, or prefer seeing people wearing nylons and nothing else.

It’s worth noting, though, that nylons tend to flatter all people. People of any gender, age, shape, size or height can wear them and feel confident the undergarment makes their legs look nice.

A nylon fetish is a very normal and healthy sexual interest. As nylons are so accessible, it’s also a very easy fetish to indulge in. People can easily buy nylons for themselves or an intimate partner. Several websites appeal to nylon fetishists, with provocative images and videos of different types of people in various states of undress wearing different types of nylons.

A nylon fetish is also called a nylon stocking fetish, pantyhose fetish, tights fetish or leggings fetish.

More About Nylon Fetish

People with a nylon fetish get aroused by nylon for different reasons, depending on what turns them on. People aroused by wearing pantyhose typically enjoy the way the fabric feels on their skin. Nylons slightly compress the skin, creating a sensation that can be very sensual. New sensations occur when legs clad in nylon come in contact with clothes layered over the top, or even with a cool breeze.

People may also love wearing nylons because they’re conscious of the way others view them. They may get turned on because they think they’re arousing others by wearing nylons, especially if they reveal the top of the stockings or their garter belt.

People aroused by others wearing pantyhose love the way the undergarments define and shape the legs. They also love the way that pantyhose can hide things they consider to be blemishes and flaws, such as cellulite and scarring, and even out or changed skin tone making the legs seem even more visually striking. They may also love the feel of touching a partner while they’re wearing nylons.

Some people attribute certain qualities to people wearing nylons that they find appealing. For example, some people feel women wearing nylons are sophisticated and accomplished, while others feel nylons can be sexually provocative. The nylons also hide the legs, making a person seem more mysterious. The combination of all these qualities can be especially alluring.

Some people enjoy their nylon fetish alone, while others like to involve another person. As with every sexual preference, honesty is the best policy when involving a partner with a nylon fetish. The fetishist should explain their interest in nylon and anything they might like to try with their partner. The fetishist may like to start with a fairly small request, like asking the partner to wear a particular outfit with nylons on a future date. If this goes well, they might consider ways to introduce nylon into the bedroom — for example, wearing crotchless nylons during sex or using nylons as a bondage tool.

Alternatively, some like to keep their nylon fetish separate from their relationships. Some people with private nylon fetishes interact with cam models and other sex workers who indulge their fantasies. For example, online content creators may video themselves masturbating while wearing their client’s choice of nylons.
