Before I met my
wife, I was going out with a really wild young lady named Majel who indulged my
fantasy for stockings. She loved it more than I did in some ways cuz she was a
real exhibitionist. Back in the 70’s, it was easy to find sexy lingerie and
even easier to find sheer dresses. I bought her a complete wardrobe, including
a special one that was VERY sheer and buttoned all the way down the front. She
agreed to wear any dress I bought and I was permitted to choose the dress she
It became a very enjoyable contest to pick out her wardrobe. I made sure that she wore stockings and a garter belt whenever we went shopping. She would try on the dresses I selected; making sure that the dressing room curtains remained open to my view. Majel complied and often smiled in the mirror as she saw other men staring into the dressing room as she changed.
Once purchase, Majel wore her dresses without a slip - always in stockings and a garter belt to turn me on! For those that have read my stories, it was Majel who introduced me to Megan when she wandered toward a new boyfriend. She was very helpful in converting Megan from her shy personality to the wonderful exhibitionist she has come to be. So as we realized we would soon be going our separate ways, there was a night when we went to the movies. I was feeling particularly horny and suggested we go to an “adult” theater. Majel agreed to indulge me with a fantasy night.
So I picked her up that evening and she was wearing that “special” sheer dress. It was black and so limited the view underneath. But she also wore my favorite lingerie comprised of a skimpy black half-bra with lace cups that listed and fully displayed her breasts. Of course there was a matching lace garter belt slung low about her hips and hitched to marvelously sheer black Hanes stockings. Finally the matching panties were crotchless with a small black silk ribbon tied in a bow across the “point of not return”.
We went out drinking and enjoyed several drinks at a local pub with Majel allowing her skirt to slide up and show off her stockings. She kept asking if I found Megan attractive and how I felt about her. Signals were flying, and I finally realized this might be our last date. Majel smiled as I admitted my feelings for Megan and she squeezed my hand.
Then she laughed and pulled up her skirt! “So this will be a night to remember!”
Her dress slid up past her stockings and the guy sitting next to us was totally flustered as her stockings and garters flashed into view! It was still early and Majel actually asked me to dance – normally I am a klutz, but I loved watching her dance. The bar was crowded with guys and she took full advantage. Halfway into the song, she looked at me, reached down, and pulled her skirt to her hips! Her black stockings and black garters were instantly displayed! Afterwards, we had another drink at the bar and Majel allowed me to slide her dress up to her hips, exposing her stockings and the taut black lace garter straps that hugged her thighs until they disappeared beneath her panties! We had several men buying us drinks and Majel teased them with her dress – even holding hands with a guy and pulling his fingers down onto her stocking tops! She loved the attention and I enjoyed the display of stockings until we left for the movie.
The theater was rundown and showing a triple x movie, but Majel was grinning from ear to ear as we bought our tickets. I mentioned that her dress was very sheer, but didn’t mention the reaction it got from men who saw it. Her dress was black lace and – at first glance – it didn’t attract attention. But for those who paid attention, her body was completely visible underneath! And when Majel wore sexy lingerie, it was completely exposed. Tonight she had worn my favorites and they were fully displayed! As she stood in the brightly lit lobby, her stockings and garter were fully visible under her skirt. Ever more exciting, for those who stood in front of her, they could see her exposed breasts, delightfully presented in her half bra. We saw a few couples, but otherwise, the theater was full of single men – most of whom had enjoyed Majel’s display of stockings and black lingerie as we stopped at the snack bar before entering the theater. Although the men in the lobby stared at her, Majel casually ignored them as we entered the theater. We sat toward the front – seen by all as we sat down, but surrounded by none. The only other couples were seated way in the back. . I was curious and didn’t know why, but we soon found out!
I had enjoyed Majel’s stocking tease at the bar and we were soon making out in our seats even before the movie began. She allowed me to slide one hand onto her barely covered breast and the other onto her thinly veiled, stocking clad thigh. I didn’t think we would be noticed in the dark theater, but didn’t care. I quickly exposed her stocking tops and toyed with the top buttons of her dress. I leaned back in my chair to enjoy her exposure and started to get hard. And then I realized why sitting down front wasn’t the best idea. I saw heads turning our way and the single men spread around the theater began changing seats so they could get closer and watch what we did.
Frankly, I didn’t care and as Majel concentrated watching the movie, I reached down into her lap and ever so slowly began to unbutton her dress. I kissed her neck and stoked her thigh, pulling her skirt up past her stocking tops and unbuttoning it as I went. As each button popped open, I would pause and then pull her dress farther apart. Her stockings were now totally exposed and the straps of her lacy garter belt lay exposed in the dark, stretched tautly from her dark stocking tops up to her panties! Majel’s creamy thighs contrasted with the dark nylon, making both more visible
It was then that I noticed several other men quietly changing their seats, moving behind us and closer in than before. Majel was now breathing heavily, knowing that she was being undressed and getting turned on by it. Soon we had five or six men sitting in our row or just behind staring at her increasing exposure! I paused for a while, as I enjoyed seeing her exposed and enjoyed seeing the men voyeuring her. Majel was very much aware of the men that began to surround us. At one point, after a passionate kiss and the opening of a button of her bodice, she whispered that we were being watched. I asked if she wanted to stop and she stunned me by saying, “No!”
So – knowing that the men were watching her, Majel allowed me to undress her. I moved to her thighs and unbuttoned another button, exposing her panties, and then another, until her dress slid away from her hips to display her garter belt! Then I felt a soft touch on my cock. Majel’s fingers gently toyed with me and began a subtle massage as she had done many times before, but in private! I caught my breath and lifted my arm around her shoulder and cupped her breast in my hand. It was her turn to catch her breath and she involuntarily squeezed my prick in her growing excitement. I could feel her nipples growing rigid between my fingers and knew it was time to continue our show! The movie was only half over, but we were growing ever more excited. I wanted to smother her with an embrace, but held back, enjoying the erotic feelings of undressing her in public!
Majel stared faithfully at the movie screen; acting just is if nothing happening. She knew there were seven or eight men watching us now, but she didn't let on! Then I shifted my fingers to the bodice of her dress and slipped open the top button. Her pale skin shown against the contrast of the dark sheer print of her dress. It was very easy to see the growing cleavage and as I undid the next button, her bodice began to fall away from her bra-clad breasts! I slipped my hand inside her dress and began stroking her nipples! Majel actually shivered and her eyes closed involuntarily as she edged closed against me. At the same time, I felt her fingers stroke me as she unzipped my pants!
Majel’s move did not go unnoticed! Several heads leaned forward over the seats in front to get a better view. The men gave up any pretense of watching the movie as they concentrated on our show! In fact, out of the corner of my eye, I saw several more bodies moving across the aisle to settle in behind us. No one said a word and they were silent as ghosts, but we now had an audience of more than a dozen men staring at Majel’s half naked body. I was now hard as a rock and as Majel finished unzipping my pants and slid her cool fingers onto my throbbing cock. Then men had a clear view of my exposed cock and Majel’s stockings and breasts and the thought excited me ever more. I decided the take the next step!
In a moment or two, I had undone two more buttons and her bodice now lay open to her waist! Her breasts were more than half exposed, with the edge of her dress hanging delicately across her nipples, but revealing the swell of her fantastic cleavage! Finally, with a methodical and very deliberate motion, I popped that last button of her dress and it opened wide! She was finally exposed from top to bottom. Her panties and garter belt were now in full view and her luscious stockings glinted in the dim light of the movie! In a final gesture as I pulled my hand back from her waist, I caught hold of her bodice and pulled it back to finally expose her rock hard nipples, nestled in the half cups of her black lace half-bra!
Majel simply lay back stroking my cock, fully displayed to the men around her in the dark theater! As I grew more excited, I slid my hand down to Majel’s panties and began to spread her thighs. She was incredibly wet and actually thrust her hips against my fingers as the last remnants of her dress fell away. I pulled the dress down off her shoulders and she readily complied, slipping her arms free and letting me pull her dress completely away from her body. I gently laid it across the chair in front of her, signaling to one and all that she was now almost completely undressed, totally naked except for her half-bra, garter belt and stockings!
Majel closed her eyes as I stroked her stocking clad thighs with one hand and squeezed her swollen breasts with the other! Suddenly we were swarmed by the men around us who had kept their distance up to this point. Most just stood over our shoulders and stared at Majel’s stocking clad body. Others, however, couldn’t resist reaching down to touch her half naked body! The men around us looked in awe and she lay naked, stroking my cock with her fingers. ! Amazingly, like me, they were drawn to the display of her stockings more than her breasts!
Majel allowed me to gently push her panties down as I caressed her stocking clad thighs. Then one the boldest men reached over and touched her thigh. Instinctively Majel knew it was not me who was groping her and – to my amazement – she lifted her hips and spread her thighs! Another hand reached to touch her stocking tops and she quivered with growing excitement. I finally understood that it was the stockings and garters that were exciting her. As I stroked the dark nylon of her stocking tops, she shivered and pressed against the fingers that groped her. Finally, their fingers touched her privates and Majel squealed as her hips lifted into the air with an orgasm. The sight of her stocking framed cunt flashing into view brought me - and several men around us - to climax. Majel simply surrendered to the men stroking her stockings and garters.
Afterwards - it was as if this never happened. The movie ended and we were suddenly alone. We simply left the theater and melted away in the darkness!
So when I was 37 and Megan was 27, we decided to take trip to Chicago to play
around. This would be about 1978 when Disco was king. We checked into a hotel
and went shopping on Michigan Avenue looking for something sexy for Megan to
wear out that night. We found a wonderful dress shop with my favorite style of
dresses (wrap around and very sheer). Megan had worn a wonderful lingerie set
with stockings and I enjoyed watching her try on different outfits.
Unfortunately, our sales assistant was "matronly" and kept pushing Megan to wear
a slip beneath her dresses as she presented them to me for approval. I enjoyed
the flip of her skirt - flashing her stocking tops and so did the other men in
the shop, but nothing more. Finally I say the perfect dress - sheer and black
and held together by a sash wrapped across her bodice under her breasts. We
bought the obligatory slip with it, but I already had other plans.
Our next stop was a lingerie shop in the Hancock Tower I had heard about. WE had lunch and several drinks and began to get a bit romantic. This was our fifth anniversary as a couple (marriage was just around the corner) and Meg had consented to give me a "special present". Simply put, she would give me a fantasy weekend come true. So we rode the open glass elevator to the third level and I began playing with her skirt - pulling it up to flash her stockings and garters to the shoppers below. She slapped my hand away as the door opened and we found the lingerie shop. I had the perfect outfit in mind and we found it without difficulty: French seamed nylons and a matching set of lingerie with sheer black lace bikini panties, low slung - hip hugging garter belt with six straps, and a marvelous quarter cup shelf bra that lifted and displayed her breasts like nothing she'd ever worn before. It increased her apparent cup size from B to C+ and offered her bare presented her nipples in full view! Sadly, she couldn't show me at the store, but her description was exciting enough to carry us to the evening!
We returned to our hotel room and cracked open a bottle of champagne. Dinner seemed unnecessary by then and she teased me constantly as we dressed for the evening. When Megan finally presented herself, I was VERY pleased. She wore a velvet choker and, coupled with her ankle strap heels, offered a subtle S&M flavor to her outfit. I couldn't see her stockings and lingerie and could only hope for the best. But her lovely sheer disco dress was all that was advertised. The dress cut low in front, revealing just a hint of her black bra, and the straps were set wide on her shoulders making it even more suggestive. The skirt was modest length - cut just at the knee - but was filmy and almost floated away from her legs as she twirled about for my approval. Finally, the dress was virtually sheer, but for a matching black mini slip she wore underneath. The slip covered the curve of her breasts and stopped just below her stocking tops. Though it was also quite filmy, it managed to blend in under her dress to create a seamless vision of excitement without display. That made me all the more excited!!!
Finally we left to party. We took a cab to North Wells Street and arrived at a wonderful disco bar - two stories with a spiral staircase leading to a clear glass reinforced dance floor above the main bar. I had a friend who made special arrangements for me with the bartender. He reserved two chairs at the bar right by the stairs for Megan and me and greeted me with a smile as he saw Megan's dress. I slipped him a twenty and he pushed it back. Glancing at Megan, he simply said that her "beauty" was payment enough. I helped Megan onto her bar stool and she responded with a playful tug of her skirt for the benefit of our bartender. Her black stockings flashed into view and she tugged her hemline up past her garters for his enjoyment!
The evening was wonderful! Within the hour we were both pleasantly tipsy and Megan was beginning to get quite sassy! We danced on the main floor and she teased me and the men watching her filmy dress. She spun around , letting her dress fly up to show her stocking tops and sometimes allowed the straps of her dress to slide off her shoulders. As her bodice slipped, her decolletage was displayed for all to see and only rescued at the last moment before it slipped from her breasts! I was already getting hard and the night was still young! Back at the bar, Megan was increasingly casual about her skirt. I help it slide up past her knees and she allowed me to push her hemline to mid-thigh to enjoy the display of her stocking tops and garters! Also - as you might expect - the single guys started to gather, offering to buy us drinks as they enjoyed Megan's increasing display. She smiled and laughed and accepted their favors, even taking their hands and laying them on her knee as we talked. It wasn't long before the boldest began stroking her thighs. I watch in stunned amazement as Megan allowed him to push her skirt nearly up to her panties as he caressed her stocking tops and fingered her glistening garters! But Meg gave me a knowing wink to show me that she was in control and I just sat beside her and got more excited!!
We were both enjoying the evening to my heart's content when Megan leaned over and whispered in my ear that she had finally decided to offer me "a fantasy I couldn't refuse"!! With that, she slipped off her bar stool and disappeared to the ladies lounge. I ordered another round - graciously returned on the house by our bartender - and waited for her to return. As Megan reappeared through the crowd, I almost fell off me stool! It was dark on the main floor, but I could instantly see that she had removed her slip. She stepped to me and wrapped me in a smothering kiss! "Happy Anniversary!" she whispered as she hopped back onto the bar stool. To my amazement, noone noticed! It was probably because they were already used to her dress and didn't pay attention, but I could now clearly see her exposed uplifted breasts through the bodice of her dress. Lower down, her stockings and garters showed delightfully through the filmy layers of her skirt, fully displayed even though the skirt rested down across her knees. Then Megan lifted her glass and we toasted our anniversary. Megan chugged her gin & tonic and then slipped off her stool. She took my hand and pulled me toward the glass stairs.
As she started up the stairs, I followed and stared at her display! I watched as the lights quickly displayed her stockings and garters! She didn't need to pull her dress up because everyone below her could see through her dress. And it wasn't long before they noticed! In spite of the crowd, when the guys realized that a half-naked woman was dancing above their heads, they spread the word! On the upper level, Megan gave me the MOST evil smile I'd ever seen and she began dancing in the middle of the glass dance floor! She didn't have to lift her dress to show off. Her stockings and garters were visible both from underneath and through her sheer skirt. I could see her breasts swelling over the top of her bra cups, nipples must barely concealed by her bodice. But then - with a last smile - Megan pushed the strps of her dress down off her shoulders. The crowd around me on the dance floor was simply frozen in place as Megan let her bodice slide off her breasts. From underneath, they could see her stockings and garters.
I was now totally hard and could barely finish the dance and then escort her down the stairs, pay our tab, and then return to our room for an incredible night of lovemaking!!
I had been driving for about 5 hours and it was nearing dinner time so I
pulled off I-40 and started looking for someplace to eat. I spotted a “Logans
Roadhouse”. The lot was pretty much empty so I figured to get in and out pretty
I went inside and was seated. Lisa was the server and she took my order and went on with her chores of getting ready for the dinner rush.
Every time that she walked by, she smiled and I smiled back. I really liked the way she moved. She had the walk of a 50s movie actress. Her ass moved as if she were dancing. She had on tight Levis and a form fitting T-shirt. She was very trim at about 100 lbs. She stood about 5’2”.
I finished my steak and when she brought the check to me she said ” I have noticed that you liked to look at me while I work. It would be nice if you bought me a drink. I get off in 10 minutes”. Of course I said, ” Yes, I would love to”. I had another cup of coffee and waited. Lisa came to the table and asked what I was driving? She told me to go to the car and she would be out shortly. When she got into the car I noticed that she had changed clothing. She was wearing a tight dark blue “Slip dress”. As she goes into the seat next to me she let it ride up showing Black FF nylon stockings. It had been a long time ago that I was in the company of a beautiful young woman in nylons and high heels.
I asked her where to go to have that drink and she told me that she lived a few blocks away and that she had a pretty well stocked bar.
When we go to her apartment she told me to make myself comfortable while she took a shower and made herself more presentable. I couldn’t how that could be possible, but I did as I was told. I found some Bushmills Irish, ice and a tall Glass and mixed myself a drink. I yelled to Lori “Can I fix you something?” She replied “Not just now. Later”.
I turned on some soft music and lit a few candles. I turned the lights down and made myself comfortable. I was tired from the ling drive but I stayed alert, as I had no idea what was to happen next.
I had “Mellowed out” when Lori came into the room. She was absolutely beautiful. She was wearing a sheer black slip, a black satin garter belt and black FF nylons. She had on black sandals with 6”heels.
She said, ”You like?” I could barely talk but I said, “I think that I have died and gone to Heaven”. She smiled and asks, ”If that offer of a drink was still open?” I replied, “You bet”.
I fixed her drink and we sat on the couch and relaxed for a few minutes. We made small talk for a while then she slid next to me and asked “if I liked the was she dressed?” I told her that she is the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen and that I had a Fetish for Slips, Nylons and High heels and that Black is my favorite color. She leaned over and gave me a hot kiss.
I put my arms around her and we kissed for a while and then she stood up and took my hand a led me to the bedroom.
Music was piped throughout the house and again the bedroom was lit only by candlelight. I don’t have words to tell you what it felt like to be with this beautiful, sensual creature.
Lori took me into her closet and showed me the many nylon slips, slip dresses and high heel shoes. She had every color and every style. She said, “They are Old fashioned now and no one wears them”. She told me that the young boys that she has met have no interest in these clothes. We talked about the way it used to be when women dressed to please the men in their lives. I told her that it is strange that we met and those we both have the same taste in clothes.
We went back into the bedroom and lie on the bed. We kissed and made love. She is like a cat in bed. Her moves are so sensual. Lori knows exactly what do and how to do it. She is the Best .
I love the feel of a nylon slip when it rubs on FF nylons. I love the way a woman’s foot looks in black nylons and sandal high heels.
Lori is really a generation out of step and I guess I am also. She said she is 22 and I am 69.
I love to look at the photos of Mercedes and I think Lori and Mercedes with their collection of erotic lingerie ever teamed up for a photo shoot – It would be too hot for the internet to handle.
We see each other every other week and sometimes sooner if I get nostalgic and want to return to 1945. That’s when my Fetish for these things began……
TRUE STOCKING LOVERS REFRAIN
NIGHT OUT by Anonymous in NC
As we neared the restaurant, I was able to find a parking space entrance. As I shut off the engine my wife said, “You know a gentleman would open the door for a lady.”
In my usual comedic way, I responded by looking around and said, “Don’t see one around. Guess I’ll have to do.”
I walked around and opened the passenger door. I looked down and got a nice surprise. Usually, my wife wears pantyhose; always nice and sheer, but always pantyhose. But as she pulled her dress up a bit and I could see the tops of stockings and a reflection of a metal garter fastened securely. She looked up at me, grinned and held up her hand. I took her hand to help her out of the car. As she got up out of the car, she made an exaggerated motion that caused her dress skirt to rise up and show more of her bare thigh.
We entered the restaurant. It has cozy booths and candle lit tables. I gave the hostess my name which she found on the reservation list. She led us to a booth off in a corner of the restaurant. We slid into the seat side by side as the hostess handed us menus and a wine list. Our server (well, in my opinion, waitress) took our wine and appetizer order.
As we sat, I asked, “So, why the stockings? You a bit frisky?”
“Could be,” she replied. “I never really was into wearing stockings. They always seemed like such a bother. But when I was shopping for lingerie, I picked up a garter belt and thought, why not. The clerk helped me pick out the stockings. Did you notice they are seamed?”
Her revealing these facts sent a rush of blood to my crotch. I must have stammered my answer that I hadn’t noticed because she giggled.
“Here, let me show you,” she said. She then took my hand and lowered it to the seat. She raised her leg up slightly so that she could put my hand under her leg.
“Feel it?”, she asked. As I gently rubbed my hand under her leg, I could feel the tell-tale bump of the seam.
“So, what do you think? Like them?”, she asked.
In a kidding manner raised my hand and whispered, “Check please.”
“Not so fast, tiger,” she giggled. “You don’t think you can have your way with me that easily?”
She moved my hand from under her leg to the top and slid it slightly inside of her leg. “You can play with my leg a bit if you’d like.”
I gently caressed her nylon clad leg with my fingers. I moved them up and down her thigh, teasing the bare skin above the tops of the stocking. Occasionally I would slip a finger under the stocking and garter feeling the warmth of her leg. I looked around and saw that even though the restaurant was crowded, we were secluded and out of sight of most of the others. I daringly slid my hand further up her leg approaching her crotch. Just before my hand brushed against her panties, she clamped her legs together.
She gently pulled my hand up and whispered, “Tsk, tsk. A bit bold aren’t we. Think you can get your way with me that easily?”
About that time the waitress brought our wine and served it. She took our order and left us alone.
“So, do you like the idea of me wearing stockings?”, she asked.
“Well, I think a woman in daring lingerie is a sexy sight. And you know what a leg man I am.”
“That’s true”, she said in agreement.
I tried to get my hand back onto her legs but every time I tried it seem our server came by to refill drinks or ask if everything was all right. So, I gave up thinking that later on at home I would not be interrupted.
We finished eating and paid for our meal. As e headed for the car, I took the opportunity to watch as my wife walked in front of me. The seam of her stocking ran straight up the middle of her leg. The nylon hugged her shapely legs. The curve of her leg was accented because of the high heeled shoe she wore.
Hoping that I would get another little show, I opened the passenger door for her. Just before she got in she said, “Unhook and unzip my dress.”
I didn’t need to be told twice. While I wasn’t sure what to expect, I did as she asked. As the back of the dress opened into a V, I saw her bra strap and noticed it didn’t have any hooks. I thought to myself, “So, wearing a hook in front job, eh… all right.”
As I hoped, she took her time getting settled into her seat. She pulled her dress up and again showed me her nylon clad legs which abruptly ended in the tops of stockings. She made it a point of adjusting a garter, pulling it tight. The stocking moved slightly up her leg as she did so. She tugged on the strap a bit more. The metal clasp glinted and flashed.
I closed her door and almost ran around to my side of the car. I got in started up and pulled out into traffic.
“Drive around the Beltway”, she said. “No need to be in a hurry to get home.”
I headed to the Beltway. In the evening, traffic on the Beltway was never heavy. I guessed she had something in mind and it didn’t take long for me to find out what that something was. As we drove, she leaned her seat back. She didn’t go quite all the way back, but far enough that her body was below the edge of the window.
She grinned at me. “I’ll have to admit. These stockings do make me feel sexy. The material is so smooth.” She placed her foot on dashboard and ran her hands along her leg. As her hands slid up her leg, she pushed the hem of her skirt up. This action exposed the tops of the stockings on both of her legs. She then grabbed the top of a stocking and pulled it up tighter. She repeated that action with the other leg. “I would have thought the garter belt to be uncomfortable, but it’s not. It fits just right..” She twisted her leg a bit and ran her finger delicately up and down the seam. “It took a bit to get the seam straight. But once I got it straight and pulled the garter tight, it stays in place pretty well. What do you think?”
I was glad that traffic was lighter than usual. I set the cruise control so that I could didn’t have to worry about my speed. All I had to do was keep one eye on the road so to speak. Of course, sometimes both eyes were on my wife.
She continued her teasing. “I did find this very sexy bra. Would you like to see it?”
I nodded my head. She reached up and turned the dome light on. Then, she took her hands and slowly pulled the top of her dress down off her shoulder.. As she did, black straps appeared. She inched her dress down further revealing her black bra.
In the glow of the dome light I could see that it was very sheer. It was obvious that the bra had an under wire that lifted her breasts. Her nipples were pressing the material, stretching it slightly. I could see her nipples through the sheer nylon material.
She smiled seductively. “Of course I couldn’t just get a bra,” she said. She continued to slide her dress down. She raised her rear slightly so the dress could slide under her. She guided the dress down her legs and took it completely off. “See, the panties match.”
Sure, enough, the panties were of the same see through material as the bra. They were a very sexy brief that was cut high on the leg. She ran her fingers along the edges of the panty. The elastic of the legs and the waist crossed over the garter belt straps. My wife slid her fingers under the elastic pulling from her skin a bit. She continued her teasing and talking. “They say that good girls wear the garters over their panties; girls that are good where their panties over the garters. I think I’m a girl that’s good, don’t you?”
Glancing at her, I grinned and nodded. “Actually, you’re fantastic.”
“And, I’m quite horny, too. Take me home, or lose me forever.”
With that I headed for home. But my wife continued her tease. She told me how the nylons will feel as she rubbed them all over my body and how hot it would be when she clamped her legs around me and moved her nylon-covered, smooth legs up and down my legs and butt.
You know, she was right.

liked going to my basketball and baseball games. I liked watching her
volleyball games because of the short uniforms they wore.
Brenda was five feet nine inches tall. She looked like Marsha Brady. Her legs were long, lean, and shapely. She styled her long hair straight like lots of other girls in 1967. Every guy in my class envied my relationship with Brenda.
friends called me “Opie”. My goofy “aw shucks” personality and my
red hair resembled “Opie” on Andy Griffith’s, Mayberry USA TV show. My
Irish heritage had cursed me with fair skin, reddish hair, and a face with a few
freckles that brought out the resemblance to “Opie Taylor”. I know my
looks never buckled a female’s knees.
Nobody knew what Brenda had done at the frat party but, Brenda, Bettie, Bettie’s brother, and me. I told my mother and father that Brenda said she need “more space”. Mom and Dad took that to mean Brenda tired of me. Mom made me hot chocolate – her antidote for all sad times when I was a kid.
All the turmoil in my life disappeared when I stepped on a baseball field. The baseball looked like a beach ball all summer. I hit over .500 and I slugged a homerun once every eight at bats. I loved hoops, but I knew after my first varsity game my sophomore year that my basketball ceiling might be at a small college.
could hit, my arm caught half the runners that tried to steal, and I handled
pitchers well. Scouts talked to me after games and talked with Pop.
The Pittsburgh Pirates invited me to two tryouts after a scout watched me play a
couple times. Going into the “Visitor’s” locker room at Forbes Field was
the biggest deal of my life. Baseball was going so well I was convinced I
would get drafted the next spring by a MLB team.
I played baseball with often ventured to Hank’s Frozen Custard on the Junction
Stretch after games. Hank’s had killer cold treats, leading-edge Mexican
food we called “Tacos”, and was a place where guys and girls met. My
buddy, Chad Calaberia, introduced me to a girl he knew from
big brown eyes, long dark hair, and a very small waist accented her fall-in-love
looks. She stood barely five feet tall, and her petite frame gave her a
fragile look. I was almost speechless by Paula’s beauty when we were
I worked for the local newspaper in a job that paid just minimum wage. However, I often got free tickets to sporting and entertainment events. I carried lead ingots to line-o-type machines late at night, but every once in a while I got to write obituaries just before deadlines. I craved a “by-line” assignment as I had pulled an “A” in high school journalism. Local restaurants hounded the editor to start a restaurant’s critic’s feature. In search of “by line” opportunities in print, I pounded the editor he should let me write a once-a-week restaurant critique. To prove my point, I’d offer him my personal feedback on restaurants the
When I regained control of my speech after meeting Paula, I remembered I was holding two tickets a concert at the Civic Light Opera in
whole evening was above me. I was afraid I mess up my first “by line”. When
I picked Paula up and met her parents earlier that night, I was stunned. She
wore a white linen suit with a straight skirt, and deep purple pumps. Paula wore
a strand of pearls around her neck and she looked out of my league. Paula
was simply drop-dead gorgeous.
At Poli's, I ordered for both of us. I convinced Paula to try lobster. Watching her eat lobster lessened her intimidating drop-dead looks. She asked me to open the tail for her, and crack the lobster’s claws. That evening’s lobster was just the third time I’d enjoyed the treat, and helping Paula helped me feel sophisticated.
Paula mistook me for being cool. When I revealed that we were eating free lobsters as the paper’s restaurant critics, Paula got more excited. Unlike Brenda, Paula was really practical about money. Before I took her home, I drove into
Since Paula found me so sophisticated, I felt compelled to live up to the image. Within five minutes, my grouping had worked its way up Paula’s thigh. When I didn’t catch a garter clip, I kept going. Soon, I was exploring the area around “home plate”. I was clumsy and asked, “What’s that?”
Paula’s response was, “That’s a gusset. I’m wearing pantyhose. Pantyhose are the latest fashion phenom”. I had taken off my suit coat and loosened my tie. I made a decision I was going too fast, and would use the opportunity to ask Paula out for the weekend.
I asked her if she’d like to go out again before I proposed where we were going. She said, “Yes” so fast I hadn’t proposed an activity. I asked her where she wanted to go. Paula said, “Let’s go to the drive in. We can make out, watch the movie, and I’ll make popcorn at home to save money”.
I picked Paula up she was wearing a yellow oxford blouse, and short straight
madras skirt. Her blouse was tucked into the skirt and her breasts looked like
they had grown an inch since we went out earlier in the week. I couldn’t
figure out why she was going out with me for a second time. Her mother
reviewed the movie for us because her older sister had seen it the night before.
Soon after the movie started, Paula and I started making out. Brenda was the only girl I had experienced making out with for more than a party kiss. I kept expecting Paula to stop me as I caressed her breasts, and stroked her panty hosed legs. Paula’s reactions only fed my hormones.
and her older sister came to watch me play baseball the next night. On my
first trip to the plate I hit a home run. The next time up the pitcher
drilled me in the ribs with his first pitch. The guy hitting behind me
lashed a single and I scampered to third base. I tried to take home on a
wild pitch. The catcher made a quick throw to the pitcher covering and the
ball got there 10 feet ahead of me. I had no choice but to barrel into the
pitcher. The collision caused his hat to go one direction, the ball
another, and his glove another.
told me she thought I was crazy for causing such a collision. I made sure
she understood my team needed the run. Also, I told her I was getting my
payback for the pitcher’s fastball in my ribs. Her sister drove us to
Hank’s after the game, and then drove me home.
our fourth date, Paula and I succumbed to our passion at a drive-in movie.
Like most 17-year-olds, I carried protection. But, I had not expected to use it
that night. As I started to take Paula’s blouse off, Paula told me she had
never “done it” before. She said she was afraid. I stopped, but Paula
pulled me closer to her.
Paula’s blood-stained pantyhose were proof she was truthful with me about her prior experience. She had just turned 16 the prior month. I felt terrible. I barely knew her, I still carried a torch for Brenda, but I had touched a button in her that lit up passion I didn’t understand.
When I got home from church the next day, Paula called to ask me to her house for dinner with her family. Brenda’s mom had already asked my whole family to their house for desert after Sunday Night church. Paula’s invite let me slide out of going to Brenda’s house.
Even though I was still in love with Brenda, Paula could light my fire with her big brown eyes. I didn’t understand why Paula delighted in delighting me.
doctor told Dad the next day he couldn’t go back to work in the warehouse.
This meant some serious belt tightening at home. Mom got a job as a cook,
and money Dad sat aside for my college was diverted to keep the family afloat.
After I returned from Eugene Curcci’s military funeral, Mom dropped the news on me about household finances. She led with the part about college. At dinner that night, Dad suggested I give up basketball and baseball. He felt I should concentrate only on football. He said with my size and athleticism that some college coach might offer me a full scholarship.
argued our area didn’t produce many basketball scholarships, while every one
of the 16 high schools in the county produced three or four football
scholarships every year. We talked about me getting drafted to play
baseball, but he quickly reminded me that only college students could defer
military service. He said, “Make your choice. Go to college next year or
I told Dad about Norm Vanlier, Simmie Hill, Billy Zoph, Dick DeVinzio, Chad Calaberia, Butch Zatazelo, and other guys at the playground that got hoops scholarships. I shared with Pop that Dennis Wuychick and Mickey Davis thought they were going to get basketball scholarships.
Pop and I compromised. I agreed to go out for football, but he’d have to let me play basketball and baseball. Dad knew I’d get stretched. He also knew he I would capitulate on anything he said. I had never questioned Dad, and I wasn’t going to question him at the start of a crisis.
Brenda’s friends told her about Paula. My friends told her that no girl in our school had looks as good as Paula. Her mother started asking me to join my parents for apple pie and ice cream after church on Sunday nights. I knew Brenda could wink and pull me back with temptation to kiss her thighs. After I started to date Paula, Brenda made a point of playing with my emotions.
I really felt guilty about Paula. Paula was in love with me, and I knew it. I wouldn’t tell her I loved her because I couldn’t lie to her verbally -- even though making love to her was a bigger lie.
I honored my promise to Brenda not call Brenda in July and August. Brenda was still mad at me for not forgiving her actions under the “spell” of alcohol. She controlled me by telling me not to call her during the summer.
relationship with Paula fed my ego, but I had grown really depressed. Dad
was scared he was going to die on the operating table during his October bypass
surgery. Mom was worried about Dad, and was tired every night from working eight
hours as a cook at the YMCA. On top of all that, the football coach didn’t
want me on his team because I hadn’t played football since grade school.
called me every night before I headed to the paper for work. She’d tell
me she loved me. I felt moral pressure from my training to be honest with Paula,
but I was overwhelmed by her physical charms. The only fault I could find
with Paula was the guilt I had about not feeling for her what she felt for me.
Brenda’s mom cornered me after church Labor Day Sunday. She told me August was behind us, and it was okay to call Brenda. I told her my feelings for Brenda were still strong, but I was seeing another girl. I gave her I was compelled to “do the honest thing” because she couldn’t refute what was taught at church.
mom told me my parents were going to her house after church that night.
She smiled “big” when she told me she was making apple pie just for me that
afternoon. I refused to commit. At lunch, Mom told me I was joining the
family at Brenda’s house after church. She had committed I would be
At church Sunday Night, I sat with a teammate from basketball and baseball in the last row of pews. When she finished singing with the choir, Brenda walked straight to my pew and asked me to move over so we could worship together like we used to.
Pastor Thomas preached about the evils of lust that night. All I could think of was that someone had spilled the details about Paula and me to him. Brenda sat on my left at the end of the pew. She crossed legs, and dangled her navy high-heeled pump on the end of her foot. As soon as she knew she had my attention she slid off her other high-heeled shoe, and caressed my lower right leg with her stocking-clad foot.
Pastor Thomas looked right at me at the exact moment Brenda raised a reaction from me. The very second after he turned away, he looked right back toward me and said, “The Bible says that man that looks upon a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery in his heart”. Here I was sitting in Church on Sunday Night and I learned I was breaking one of the Ten Commandments just by thinking about sex. By that logic, I was sinful at least half of every day.
wasn’t paying attention to Pastor Thomas’ sermon on lust. Instead, she
stoked my lust, and her lust. I knew every word from his mouth was aimed
at me. Brenda slid over and positioned her left leg against me so our
thighs and knees were directly touching. I could feel her garter against my
thigh, and her silky stockings sliding against me set my body on fire.
When the pastor issued the invitation for sinners to seek forgiveness, I almost sprinted out of the pew to the front of the church to confess my sins. Brenda had grown adept at reading my thoughts when we were intimate. She whispered in my ear, “Don’t you dare. I don’t want my parents to think we’re doing it. Besides, you won’t really need forgiveness until later.” The arrogance of her sureness angered me.
ate two pieces of apple pie at Brenda’s house, and I ate them slowly. Brenda
slid her shoes off as we entered her parents’ house, and made sure I saw the
reinforced toes and heels of her tan stockings. As I slowly nibbled on the pie,
she did her best to crumble my resistance by rubbing her foot up and down my
calf. She got her foot between my thighs, and her silky calf rubbed
against my inner thigh. Her toes rubbed my crotch.
had me so lathered up my zipper hardly contained the force of the bulge she
worked up. I couldn’t get up from the table because of the fear of
embarrassment. Brenda had tangible feedback of her impact on me that I
Brenda’s knew Miss Daquilla flirted with me, but didn’t know I weakened when I helped Miss Daquilla move into her new apartment. Brenda was so confident of my "puppy-dog love" for her that she could walk me on a leash. She owned that "Marsha Brady, I'm the fairest damsel in the land attitude." Crushing my heart a few weeks earlier had fed her ego.
I loved the determination I mustered to ignore Brenda’s seduction that night. The full-court press she had used with her mother and my mother had pissed me off. Neither of our mothers believed their little babies had been doing the dirty deed. Brenda’s family doctor assured her mother of Brenda’s virginity status earlier in the year. My father sensed what was going on, but he was unsure because I never used the condoms he had purchased. All the little ladies in the church saw Brenda and me as a cute couple. If the little ladies at church knew “Opie” was an almost insatiable “horn dog”, they surely would have disdained me.
I got up Labor Day morning, I had no idea what kind of day I was in for. I
encountered so many surprises that day, it became the longest day of my life.
It also was the most physically draining day I ever experienced.
tensions erupted over the weekend in
economic strata were 95 percent working class, with those neighbors that
belonged to the United Steel Workers union representing what we called
The racial tensions shook me. I didn’t know how it affected my friends from baseball, basketball and football. Italians, Serbs, Blacks, and German farmers had grown to be my close friends since first grade in my small town. I wondered if the race riots would change my comfortable world of relationships.
started the day after Labor Day each year. Coach had scheduled two
football practices. Guys on the team weren’t looking forward to the morning
practice. After breaking camp on Friday, our scrimmage Saturday Night against
Farrell revealed a lot of weaknesses in our team. Coach was red-faced, and
cussing mad Saturday night.
I had to work in the lumber yard and didn’t get to go to summer camp. I didn’t get off the bench in Saturday night’s scrimmage. I looked forward to practice until I heard we nearly had race riots. I wondered how my close friends that were Black would react to me. Would they be angry? Would they be tense? Would our friendships change? I wanted the status quo, but I wanted to protect the feelings of my friends, too. While there was race bias in
After sled drills, we broke into a scrimmage to work on the aspects of our game that broke down in Saturday. Our head coach took the varsity players, and sent the junior varsity with a young assistant, Don Yanessa. Yanni was two parts Howie Long, one part Barry Switzer, and one part, Ken Howard from the 70s sitcom, “White Shadow”. Girls in school moaned when "Yanni" walked by them in the halls. I got placed with the junior varsity, which I felt was an insult to an All-Conference basketball player.
The offense lined up on its 50 yard line, and had 10 plays to go in for a touchdown. Most of the varsity guys thought it would take them four or five plays to score on me and ten sophomores.
was in Coach’s office when I begged Coach to let me try out. He’d heard me
tell Coach I wanted to play football because several guys on the team had
taunted me when I was 70 pounds lighter and a foot shorter in 9th grade.
He umpired baseball in the summer and was behind the plate one night when two
guys from an opponent tried to dislodge the ball on close plays at the plate.
He remembered I met the second guy square on and leveled him four feet in front
of the plate.
Yanni got in my face. When the offense came up to the ball, Yanni yelled, “They won’t respect you, Opie!” Then Yanni said loud enough for everyone in the county to hear, “Coach thinks you’re a pussy, and you aren’t good enough to be on his field”.
Yanni set me up at a middle linebacker. I was completely clueless about what I was supposed to do. I asked Yanni what I should do. He said when the center snaps the ball to the quarterback you tackle the quarterback before he hands the ball off.
hadn’t played football since grade school, except in the streets. The center
snapped the ball and I shot through a gap. I tackled the quarterback
before he could hand the ball off. It felt good to hit him.
hollered at Yanni, “No, No, No, and a hundred thousand f---ing times no. We
don’t want any f---ing blitzes."
Yanni was just 22 or 23 at the time, and his pride was hurt. He looked at me and said, “Get in a 3-point stance, get in a center-guard gap, and blast the gap as soon as the center snaps the ball. I want you to hit the quarterback so hard he won’t want to take another breath until this afternoon.”
I did just was Yanni told me. Coach got red-faced and started cussing at me. He put a red vest on the quarterback and said the quarterback couldn’t get tackled when he had on a red vest. Yanni’s pride was stoked, and I loved laying a breath-taking hit on the prima donna quarterback that picked on me when he was five inches taller and 40 pounds heavier.
Now, the tables were turned. I was bigger, yet my basketball quickness and catcher toughness provided me a miss-match advantage. I hollered at Yanni, “Look coach, they put the pussy in a petticoat so we could kiss him instead of tackle him.” Coach flipped out at me and called me a smart ass.
loved the competitive fire he stoked in me so easy. Yanni wasn’t aware Pop had
stoked that fire every day since I was born. Sometimes that fire burned
too hot, but the football field was the place for it. I loved how it felt
to get even with folks that had teased me when I was smaller. When I
exploded my violence upon them, I was just doing my job for my team.
gathered us into a huddle, and quickly explained to me an “ice play” was
coming. He said Coach was going to test my toughness. “Ice”
is short for isolation. In this play, two backs block the linebacker, and the
down linemen double team block on the defensive tackles. It’s a violent play.
our “ice” play, our fullback was the lead blocker that hit the hole first.
Our FB was a big guy – about 6’6” and 220 pounds. The wingback was
the second blocker and blocked me after going in motion.
gave me a quick demonstration on how to take on the lead blocker and split the
double team. Yanni’s demo seemed simple to me. Yanni said, “Dig
in, and meet the first guy into the whole with your best forearm shiver”.
The he smiled and said, “Kick their ass”.
big fullback plowed into me just like Yanni promised. I got lower than the
fullback and used the jam technique Yanni had just showed me. I stood the big
guy straight up. The second back hit me in the back, but a 130 pound sophomore
tackled the ball carrier four yards behind the line of scrimmage. I had
jammed the play.
After ten plays, the varsity was on back on their 40 yard line -- suffering 10 yards of net losses. I had made six tackles and knocked down a pass. Yanni was beside himself. He kept hollering at the offense, “Opie’s gonna get yas, Opie’s gonna to get yas.” Coach was red faced, and tight lipped. I knew Yanni was going to get it after practice, but I figured he knew better than me what was coming.
Coach made us start from the 50 yard line again.. He said, “Gentlemen, if we don’t do it right this time, we're doing grass drills for the rest of practice.” After the next ten plays, the varsity had gained three yards. I made several more tackles and broke up three more “Ice” plays where other guys made tackles. My confidence showed, and none of the varsity hot shots were able to block me.
Coach ran us through grass drills for 70 minutes. Grass drills make your lungs burn. Every muscle in your body screams “quit” during grass drills. In Coach’s version of grass drills we jumped face first into the ground; got up and sprinted five yards; jumped face first into the ground again, got back up and sprinted back to the starting point; then he had us jumped face first into the ground, get up, and sprint ten yards. At that point we jumped face first into the ground, again; got up, and sprinted back to starting point. The drill progresses until you get to a hundred yards in five yard increments.
I had experienced in basketball and baseball compared to this torture.
Some guys didn’t like the contact of football. I loved the contact, but
grass drills were my enemy. I admit, though, that those grass drills made
us mentally tougher.
The grass drills kicked my ass, but I was on top of the world because I had made such an impression in our scrimmage. I really didn’t know what to expect with contact. I didn’t realize the fire and courage it took to confront the violent contact of football. Basketball and baseball were contact sports, but football is a violent sport. I had made Yanni’s day with my kinship with football contact. Yanni and I became friends.
I got home from practice, Paula’s Dad, Mr., Pucci, had left a message with Mom
for me to call him. Mr. Pucci ask me to meet him at the Sons of Italy Hall for
lunch. I was concerned. Mr. Pucci had the worst LMS (Little Man
Syndrome) I had every encountered. I was afraid he learned Paula and I
were doing the dirty deed.
Pucci worked at the J & L Aliquippa Works, and served as the union as
vice-president of USW Local 412. Mr. Pucci ordered lasagna for me. He told
me the SOI's lasagna was even better than his wife’s. He ordered Italian
sausage, “Dago Red homemade wine”, and ate Italian bread for himself. He
looked me right in the eye, and said, “My wife tells me you took Paula’s
virtue, and you’re doing Paula two or three times a week”. At that
point, the lasagna didn’t taste as good as what Mrs. Pucci had made.
Pucci told me Paula had approached her mother for birth control pills. He
told me he was absolutely against it, and wanted me to stop seeing his
daughter. Mr. Pucci had taken me by surprise. My worst fear was playing
didn’t know Paula had told her mother about our relationship. In 1967,
young gentlemen didn’t kiss and tell. Proper young ladies denied even thinking
about sex – even though I later learned a lot more “did it” than I
Two of Mr. Pucci’s friends came to our table from the bar. They asked him if he was okay, and Mr. Pucci spouted about me stealing his daughter’s virtue. The guys asked him, “You want for us to take him outside and teach him a lesson, Mr. Pucci?”
I thanked Mr. Pucci for lunch and scurried out of the S.O.I. as fast as I could walk. I was glad I had said nothing to Mr. Pucci. Mr. Pucci’s friends followed me. I took them for Mafia guys. They didn’t know when they caught up with me I had picked up a brick. When the bigger of the two guys grabbed me by shoulder, I turned into him with the brick like I was swing at a belt-high fastball. Blood gushed from his nose and his mouth. He screamed in pain, and fell to the sidewalk.
Not knowing what was next, I kicked the other guy between his legs, and ran home as fast as I could. My heart was racing with the most fear I had experienced in 17 years. Before I caught my breath and my mother knocked on the door to tell me, “That girl, Paula” was on the telephone holding for me.
Dad had come home and told her mother about his meeting with me and telling me
to stay away from Paula. He hadn’t told Mrs. Pucci about bringing his
goons along.Mr. Pucci didn’t know what happened when his friends followed me
down the street.
exploded into shrieks when I described what happened. Her mother took the phone,
and asked me to talk with Mr. Pucci. When I told Mr. Pucci the story
about hitting one of the guys with a brick, and kicking the other one between
the legs, he said he said, “Shit”.
There was no doubt in my mind that some “wise guy” was going to burst through the front door of my parents’ home any second and shoot us all into a puddle of blood. Mr. Pucci just said, Shit!” and handed the phone to Mrs. Pucci. She said, “Opie, I’m sorry, but Paula can’t talk with you now.”
Since I thought the mafia was less than five minutes away, I knew I had to come clean with Dad. I told Pop about Paula and Mr. Pucci. “Son”, he said, “a man always gets in trouble when the blood rushes from his big brain to his little brain. You’re in trouble, but I believe I can take care of this thing.”
he said, “You did the right thing with the wise guys. I don’t want you
starting trouble, but you’ll always be on the run from those guys if you
aren’t respected. You made it easier to fix this since they have learned
you didn’t run and hide”.
was a Democrat precinct chairman. He called the chairman from Mr. Pucci’s
precinct, and told him some of the details. My dad’s associate called a
state senator, and set a dinner meeting set for Wednesday at the Serbian Club in
and I sat at the table with the state senator. Mr. and Mrs. Pucci showed
up, and they brought Paula. Mrs. Pucci sat Paula between me and her, and
next to Mr. Pucci. The state senator sat between Dad and Mr. Pucci.
After Mr. Pucci apologized to me, Mrs. Pucci hugged me, Paula cried, and we ate
learned I had, in fact, busted a brick on a low-level mafia wise guy. Mr. Pucci
paid the doctor bills for more than 50 stitches, and bought the guy off with
$500 cash. I also learned Mr. Pucci crossed a line. Mrs. Pucci’s father
was a “Mafia Don” and Mr. Pucci was in big-time hot water with his wife.
Dad told me not to breathe a word to anyone about the dinner – especially to
I got promoted to the first team in football when we returned for the second practice Monday, Yanni and Coach told me I was playing middle linebacker in the season opener Saturday night. I practiced with the first team all week.
Mr. and Mrs. Pucci took Paula and me to the SOI for dinner Friday night. Paula looked exactly like a miniature Natalie Wood, a Hollywood star at the time. She wore a white silk dress, with white gloves, and white pumps. At barely five feet tall and right at 100 pounds. Her eyes and face were so beautiful I was astounded.
Paula made me feel special like no other member of the opposite sex had ever done. It made no sense for a gal that looked so drop-dead gorgeous to even go out with me, let alone fawn over me. At dinner she moved her legs next to mine under the table, but her awareness of her father was never in doubt.
Mr. Pucci told me at dinner that he, Mrs. Pucci, Paula, and Paula’s sister were coming to my football game the next night. He mustered a sly grin, and said, “If you hit on the field like you hit on the street, your rivals will put up the white flag by halftime”. I pretended I wasn’t sure I knew what he meant.
Paula walked me to my door when Mr. and Mrs. Pucci drove me home. She had no problem laying a long passionate kiss on me with her parents less than 50 feet away. At 15 inches taller, I had to slide down to kiss her – even with her 3-inch heels. I told her I’d try to get the family car for after the game if she could get a curfew.
In the 62 games my school had previously played against our hated rival, the good guys had won just seven times. The previous season, our rival had embarrassed us 60-6. We were underdogs – big time underdogs. A writer for the paper I worked for mentioned it might be hard for our rival’s coach to hold the score down to last year’s drubbing.
knew about the scrimmage beating we had sustained a week earlier. Our
rivals returned most of their starters from the prior year. I knew their
quarterback from hoops at the waterworks.
As we were dressing, Yanni called me outside the locker room. He said, "You’re going to be nervous. Don’t think. You’re playing over an All-State center, but he’s not quick enough to handle you. They won’t read our stunts and blitzes, and you’re gonna get a lot of clean shots. “
Yanni smiled. He slapped my back on my shoulder pads and looked right into my eyes. “I know this doesn’t make sense since you were 3rd string just a week ago, but you are our hammer, Op. You’ll be the difference between us winning and losing. Our team has to have the confidence that comes from big hits. You're our hitter, Op. If you don’t slam the hammer, it could be ugly.”
The heat was oppressive. Our offense couldn’t move the ball, and the all-state center wasn’t as slow as Yanni promised. It seemed like we were playing defense the whole game.
I found out I was stronger, and quick enough to force Mr. All State into two yip snaps. We recovered both fumbles. We beat our rivals 7-0, but I had dropped nearly 15 pounds of fluids.
I punished their guys when I had clear shots. Our lone touchdown was the result of an intercepted after I hit their quarterback on a blitz. Medics carries him off the field on a stretcher before we kicked the extra point. The ambulance’s flashing lights going off the field was the symbol guys on our team needed to believe.
was beside himself at halftime. He asked for a head butt from me on his
forehead. The butt opened a cut and he wiped his blood on each of the
defensive front seven. We played nasty defense the second half. Our
opponents didn’t get past the 50-yard line and only got one first down.
I got past Mr. All State twice on blitzes, and snuff every “Ice” play they
ran at us.
told us after the game that their team had scored four touchdowns and gained 238
yards last year on “Ice” plays. He reminded us the “grass drills”
we did Monday made us tough enough to win. I didn’t buy Coach’s logic.
I thought Yanni had been the difference in convincing us we could win.
Paula’s parents let her go to the dance with me after the game. She wore the madras skirt and yellow oxford blouse she had worn on our second date. Of course, she wore pantyhose. We made love in the front seat of the car while parked in her parents’ driveway. I kissed her goodnight two minutes before her midnight curfew.
with Paula’s parents didn’t add up just like things with Paula and I
didn’t add up. Her mother called Sunday afternoon and asked me to Sunday
dinner. Paula’s grandparents from both sides were at dinner to meet me.
Both of her grandmothers fussed over Paula, and both of them went out of their way to treat me nice. Paula’s grandfather on her bother’s side didn’t talk much. He sat directly across from me at dinner. The only thing he said was, “Son, I understand you’re good at contact sports”. He put his head down and smiled.
than a week before, Paula’s dad had a pair of goons try to scare me away, and
now I was an honored guess in his home. He went on all through dinner about my
“vicious” play in the football game the night before. I was confused.
Brenda had enlisted my mother in her full court press. My mother tried to tell me I couldn’t go to Paula’s for Sunday dinner, but Dad put his foot down. After I took Paula home after the Saturday game, I went straight to the newspaper to work. I got off at 6 a.m. and slept for two hours sleep before rising for Church. After church, I crashed again.
Dad got me up at 4 p.m. to get ready to go to Paula’s. He, Mom, and I talked about Paula and Brenda. I made it clear my choice in girlfriends was my call. Dad supported me. Mom griped about differences in faiths, and told me Catholics were going to Hell. Like always, Dad pulled out a "win" when he needed one. He taught me to pick my battles.
Paula was wearing shorts when I got to her house – the first time in three months I saw her without a skirt and pantyhose. The 1-10 numbering system guys used to rate girls looks had already gained traction in 1967. If Bo Derek was a true 10, Paula was every bit a 12 - or higher. Paula was eye candy before there was eye candy.
Paula and I washed dishes and I served coffee and desert to her grandparents. We talked that night about subjects we hadn’t talked about before. I learned Paula had repeated first grade, and was just starting 10th grade. She told me she had little confidence in her intelligence.
her grandparents went home, Paula and I retreated to the porch swing in front of
her house. We talked about our dreams and aspirations – something we hadn’t
shared previously. We teased each other, and I found her “tickle spots” for
the first time. Paula asked me a lot of questions about Brenda, and if I thought
I’d ever get over Brenda.
I hadn’t seen the paper that day. Paula had cut out the article about our game the night before. Coach’s made comments in the first paragraph about the difference in “Ice” play stats from last season. Coach singled me out, and the paper mentioned my name. I told Paula I was most proud of getting accepted by my teammates since I was third string just a week ago.
Paula asked me if the contact scared me. I admitted to her I was scared “shitless” before the game, but I forgot my fears once we kicked off. Paula kissed my forehead and squeezed my hand. The next thing I remember was that Paula was shaking me. I had fallen asleep in her lap.
this day I remember it was nearly 10 o’clock when I got home. Paula lived
fifteen minutes from my house, and during the ride home I realized I had fallen
in love with her.
As soon as I got home I rushed to call her. Paula answered the phone, and I announced, “Paula, I’m in love with you”. I hung up right away, but I sent her a dozen yellow roses the next day. The roses took half of my paycheck for a weekend night at the paper.
Mr. White let me clean the offices and the lumber yard after football practice four nights a week. I gave that money to Mom for household expenses and used money from my night at the paper for spending money. The guys in Dad’s union local each kicked in a dollar a week to buy groceries and pay our utilities. My contribution from the lumber yard made the $60 per month house payment.
My studying got done in two one-hour study halls I had each day. Paula and I helped each other with Spanish on the phone each night from 10 – 11. Yanni was the only coach that knew I had an after-practice job. He was also my history teacher and gave me every break possible. He gave me “A’s” inspite of the fact that my work deserved “B” grades.
Paula flipped out about the flowers. I knew yellow was her favorite color from her clothes. She told me she had felt second-class as “Brenda’s back up in my heart”, and told me she was glad she had finally switched places with Brenda. I corrected her, and told her she was alone in my heart now. Paula cried. I told her I had not gotten as mentally close with Brenda as I was with her. I told her I felt she opened her heart to me, and Brenda hadn’t learned to do that.
Pop survived the heart by-pass surgery. Dr. McGovern told him to pay when he could. My restaurant critic column grew popular with readers, and the editor sent me out one night a week. He paid me for eight hours, and I got a free dinner for Paula and I.. Football went well. Our team finished the season with our school's best record in five years, and I made All-Conference teams. Colleges were visiting school and talking with me.
Paula and I talked every night, and helped each other with Spanish. When the first nine weeks ended, Paula and I each got A’s in Spanish. Paula had her best report card ever. By Thanksgiving, Mom and Pop had burned all their savings on Dad’s doctor bills. My college account was the only money left.
at Dad’s work went out on strike, and their financial support dried up. When
you’re young and in love everything is right in life. Football had helped my
confidence so much. My reputation as a tough guy grew, and I liked it. I broke
my right hand in the fourth game. Yanni taped it tight enough that I lost all
feeling – so it never hurt. .I missed five plays all season, but couldn't
write for six weeks. I used by left hand to gently stroke and caress
Paula’s mother had won the battle for birth control pills, and I convinced Paula to wear stockings when we went out for my restaurant critic dinners. Our relationship grew more intense each week. She never missed one of my games, and her parents often came to the games, too. Mom got to know Paula, and learned to accept the “cute little Catholic girl”.
Paula’s parents let her join me for church Sunday night’s if I went to Mass with her Sunday mornings. At Thanksgiving, Paula shared with me sensitive family issues.
Things that never added up came together quickly. Paula told me her father kept a mistress on the side, and her mother was aware of his infidelity. She told me it was sort of an old-world tradition with blue-collar Italian men. Her mother’s father had done the same.
I wasn't surprised when Paula told me her dad was a bookie, and ran a loan shark business out of the mill. She had been her father’s little princess until her 16th birthday when she learned of her Dad’s second life. Our first night of passion resulted from her rebellion, the fact I made her feel so special, and that I was so different from her father.
Paula admired her mother so much for her strength. When her mother learned of her father’s attempts to scare me off, she grew even more determined to get Paula birth control pills to exercise her power. Her mother’s power was backed by Paula’s grandfather’s high-level Mafia role.
I have to admit my ego was somewhat deflated when Paula didn’t tell me some magical power I owned overcame her and made her want me sexually. When she finally revealed my tenderness and honesty with her won her over, I forgot my early guilt for my loveless lust.
Paula had become the best friend I ever had. I helped Paula believe in herself, and her confidence grew. She no longer saw herself as a petite “Barbie” doll, but as an assertive young lady that believed she could achieve. Her assertiveness grew weekly, and she took pleasure in challenging me on politics and sports. Still, she fawned on me in ways I have never experienced since then.
Before we got serious, Paula never considered college. Her father discouraged her from any thoughts of an education. Her mother had convinced her that an Italian woman’s only place was in the home.
Paula loved coming to my parents’ home. My younger sister was in awe of Paula’s appearance, and loved the attention Paula paid to her. Mom and Dad really grew to like her, and soon she surpassed Brenda in Mom’s eyes. I got my taste for apple pie and chocolate chip cookies from Dad. Paula fussed over Pop like she did her Grandfathers. She never came to the house without giving pop a kiss and a sweet treat she had made for him.
ran the scoreboard at basketball games. He teased me about “playing up in
class” in reference to Paula. He accused me of head butting her so she
couldn’t see me when we went out. When basketball season started, life
had grown really good -- except for the financial crunch at home.
"grim reaper" visited Mom and Dad in the form of a mortgage
foreclosure letter just after Thanksgiving. Dad held a family meeting after
dinner and alerted us Santa Claus wasn't coming to town in 1967. Pop told me he
needed every penny I had available. Dad assured us he felt better physically,
but our financial future looked bleak. He had been turned down for Social
Disability since he was qualified physically to work in an office – even
though he wasn’t qualified educationally.
Pop allowed me to keep $20 for Paula’s Christmas present, but he instructed me to ask Mr. White for more hours. I suggested to Dad I could drop out of school and support the family. Pop got mad and told me he’d figure something else out.
Dad’s brother was president of a United Mine Workers Local, and knew Paula’s father. Uncle Bud suggested Mr. Pucci might be able to get me into J & L Steel and that I could trade out daylight shifts so I could finish school. Entry-level jobs at J & L paid better than Dad made after 17 years in his job.
That night I called Paula’s Dad, and told him my problem. I asked him for instructions on submitting an application and getting hired at J & L. He told me J & L hired through the Pennsylvania Bureau of Employment, and I’d have to score better than other applicants on a test to get hired.
He said if I scored well on the test he knew people in personnel that would help me. Most of the other guys taking the test the morning I applied looked hung over, and without purpose. Two days later I got called to take a physical, and was instructed to report work at midnight.
I called Paula with my excitement. The job meant Santa Claus could visit my sister, and Dad could save the house. Paula wasn’t enthused. In fact, she was very negative about the whole idea. Her attitude shocked me. When things didn’t add up, I suspected Paula’s father was at the root of the problem.
When I reported to work I got sent to the finishing mill -- where Paula’s father worked. Mr. Pucci had arranged for me to work in the crane which took political bending of the union’s bidding rules. He also arranged for me to work the midnight shift on Sunday’s through Thursday’s. I’d trade shifts with the other two crane operators who were glad to rid themselves of midnight shifts for daylight and twilight.
Mr. Pucci told me the job had the added benefit of working for him on paydays – collecting from guys that owed him money by hanging out at the paymaster’s office on payday. He paid me $50 cash every other Thursday for just a few hours effort. I knew Mr. Pucci had pulled strings to help me, but I also knew what he wanted me to do was wrong.
I wasn’t aware, but Mrs. Pucci continuously threw my “aw shucks, do right” honesty in Mr. Pucci’s face. I learned he put a face on for Paula's sake, but he really resented my values and the fact I had embarrassed his goons on Labor Day when they followed me out of the SOI. . Mr. Pucci knew he’d achieved leverage over me, but I didn't know how he was about to impact me.
I attended Midnight Mass with Paula and her mother on Christmas Eve. Mrs. Pucci arranged a ride home with friends from church so Paula and I could be alone. It snowed earlier that day -- providing
She wanted “us” to talk, but I got left out of “us”. After Paula stopped crying, she punched me with clenched fists as hard as she could until she tired. Then, Paula drifted into a half crying – half screaming – rant for nearly an hour.
Paula told me she was afraid I would break her heart like her father and grandfathers had broken the hearts of their women. She told me she feared her father would get a grip on me in the mill that I couldn’t escape. She said her mother had seen her father pull so many other people into his web of deceit with his power at the mill.
Paula and I talked many times about our future. We talked of getting married after she I finished my sophomore year in college and she graduated from college. Paula reminded me I promised her a life where good beat evil.
After Christmas Day basketball practice, I went to Paula’s house to pick her up for Christmas Dinner with my family. We exchanged presents in front of her parents, but said little on the 15 minute drive to my house.
Paula and I washed dishes and cleaned the kitchen after Christmas Dinner. We talked while we washed dishes, and Paula told me she felt I had given up my soul to her father. When we got to her door that night, Paula said, “I love you, but I’m afraid to watch you grow into what he is.” She hugged me hard and walked into her house.
The next night I got knocked to the floor in the Holiday Basketball Tournament, and got sent to the hospital with a concussion. Paula visited me that evening, and sat on my bed. She told me she was worried about me. She asked me to quit basketball and get a job in another mill.
was right. Her father owned me. When I got back to work he tried twice to get me
to drop hot loads on guys in the mill he wanted to kill. Saying no wasn't an
option. Refusing Mr. Pucci just meant I'd become a target for an
“accident”. Rarely a month went expired that someone didn't die at J & L
- and I learned most of the accidental deaths weren’t really accidents.
I shouldn't have been surprised. Steel haulers were killed in my county every month by snipers. I had friends that paid their way through college starting cars in
I told Paula what was going on, she flipped out. At dinner the next Sunday
at my home, she told my parents how her father’s influence had affected me.
She point-blank told me and my parents she would break up with me if I didn’t
quit the mill by the end of the month. She told Mom and Pop I should quit
basketball and work in another mill.

free to get another job after basketball season, but men at our house didn’t
quit what they started. He said, “We tough things out”. Paula
asked me to take her home. She cried the whole way. Paula told me we
were through, and she had to move forward in her life. She said her mother
and her had talked through the issue.

was working in the mill. College football coaches called, but no big schools
brought offers prior to national signing day. When national signing day came in
February, I didn’t get a scholarship offer.
A small private college ten miles away offered me a partial football scholarship if I’d sign right away. Dad felt the pressure, and told me I could continue working at the mill this way. He encouraged me to sign, and said I could afford to buy a car if I lived at home.
Basketball progressed as projected. Our team broke the school’s 20-year conference championship drought and won our first two playoff games in the Pitt Field House.
I had lost nearly 20 pounds since Thanksgiving. My play dropped off from the prior season. I was always tired and my fatigue from working in the mill, going to school, and playing ball got to me. My basketball coach thought I might have fallen prey to drugs. Yanni convinced him the financial strain at home wore on me.
Paula broke up with me, I was crushed. Mom called Paula’s mother without
my knowledge, and her mother blamed everything on my Dad and her husband.
She told Mom of my two ill-fated load drops in the mill.
my knowledge, Paula made it to our playoff games at Pitt’s Field House.
I hurt for Paula more than I had hurt for Brenda. Our next game was at the
Civic Arena, a 13,000 seat arena in downtown
The nurse at the Civic arena’s first aid office stitched hockey players, and said I could get back for the second half if I wanted her to stitch me. I asked why it took so long and she told me it took time for the pain killer to set up.
“Damn, the pain killer,” I said, “I waited for this night all my life. I don’t want to miss a second”. I was on the floor for the start of the second quarter, with a shaved eyebrow, five stitches, and a budging shiner.
When I ran out the runway toward the Civic Arena floor, I thought I saw Paula. When I was sure it was her, my heart started racing. Paula reached out and grabbed my arm as I ran by the seats going back to the bench. She yelled at me, "You’ve dreamed of playing here your whole life. Be my hero one more time. Tough it out, Opie.”
My team was down by nine points when we started the second quarter. On the second trip down the floor I blocked the shot of their best inside player. I got high enough, and enough of the ball, that I pulled us both to the floor. The refs called a jump ball, and in those days you actually jumped for possession.
Even though I was three inches shorter, I knew I could control the tip with jumping quickness and my long arms. I winked to my sixth grade buddy, James, which meant take a flyer on my jump ball. I won the tap to everyone’s surprise and James delivered an uncontested slam dunk.
Everyone in our small town was at the game, and our cross-river rivals played the second game of the evening. James’ dunk electrified the crowd, and converted our rivals across the river to our friends for the night. Paula's encouragement set me on fire! I was all over the floor. I only scored six points, but I grabbed 11 rebounds and helped hold Mr. All State to just 13 points.
in the Civic Arena was one of the dreams I had shared with Paula during our
endless talks. By the end of the game it was clear I had taken away his
game and his fight. Coach decided to stay through the second game so we could
return support to our cross-river rivals.
knew I needed to be at work at midnight, and offered to drive me there to help
me keep my job. She kissed me long and hard after laughing at my shaved
eyebrow and told me how good she felt watching me experience my dream.
When we got to her mother’s car, Paula told me she was lonely and wanted me. She said, “I still love you, but this isn’t love. I’m horny”. We made love, but Paula made it clear she wasn’t turning back. Our relationship was over.
month later, Brenda got to me at a weak moment. I had sex with her at our tree
house on a warm night in May. I was still in love with Paula, and Brenda
knew it. Paula never returned any of my calls after the game in the
Civic Arena. Paula didn't play games. She said what she meant, and meant
what she said.

relationship with Brenda was purely physical and social for the next nine
months. I wasn’t able to get Paula out of my heart, or my mind. My hurt

before his death..

I had played college football in the fall of 1968, and kept my job in the mill at midnight. The physical demands of college football were greater than any high school sport. I got drafted in later rounds, but Dad didn’t let me sign because the bonus was too low.
The world got crazier after Paula broke up with me. Martin Luther King was shot, and race riots destroyed much of
The first time I didn't deliver on the accident I told Mr. Pucci I got cold feet. He was red-faced angry and let me know there were consequences for not meeting his expectations. The second time I dropped a load but I had the load swinging so I knew it would miss his target.

wore a white linen suit like she wore on our fist date, and she wore stockings.
After we had shared a bottled of wine, she slid her skirt high enough to reveal
the top of her stocking welt, and said, “Can I tempt you?”
“Am I tempted? Yes,”, I replied, “but I'm in love with my best friend. You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on, but I made a death do us part promise”.

and garters in “Crunch Time”
the pantyhose craze swept the
The fact girls seemed less concerned keeping their thighs covered when they wore pantyhose was something I liked. Also, I liked that pantyhose eliminated panty girdles. Panty girdles covered thighs, and usually covered stocking welts. But mostly, panty girdles appeared to me to be the chastity belts that suffocated my fantasies.
During my freshman year of high school, a girl in my English class with long, lithe legs accidentally provided me a vision I can vividly recall to this day. The edge of her pleated gray wool skirt got caught on the edge of her desk. Her mishap provided me a look at her spectacular legs. Her sheer tan stockings were affixed with white garters. I was hypnotized.
The first time she crossed her legs, I saw her garter belt outlined under her white nylon panties. I was seated to her left, and I was in the last seat of my row. I was the only person in class that caught this great leg shot.
When she crossed her legs, the swishing sound of her stockings rubbing together grabbed my attention. Her skirt did not separate from the desk the entire class period. English was the last thing on my mind. I felt guilty thinking the thoughts brought up by my view of her legs. We had been close friends since fifth grade.
All I could think about at that moment was getting lost between her legs. She had matured faster than me. She got invited to parties by guys two grades ahead of us in school. At my public school, social rules didn’t allow freshman guys to move up in class. Undoubtedly, her status was beyond my class.
To make my concentration even more difficult, the girl seated in front of her wore a short skirt. Her skirt had risen to expose the panty edge in her pantyhose. I glanced at her gams. When she intercepted my glance, I turned my head away. I had been caught looking, and my red face showed I was embarrassed. Still, the girl she didn’t pull her skirt down.
Our teacher noticed of my lack of attention to her lecture. Just before the bell to end the class, she asked me what was so interesting I had paid no attention for the entire period. The girl seated ahead of spoke before I could, and said, “He’s been day dreaming, and he’s popped a boner”.
The class exploded in laughter. I wanted to find a place to go hide -- and die. The bulge in my pants was obvious to all those that looked - which seemed liked everyone. When the bell rang to end class, I couldn’t get to my study period fast enough.
My closest friend slid into the seat beside me, and asked me if what he heard on the way to study period was true. I nodded affirmatively. Instead of being the friend I needed at that moment, he coolly informed me I had become the new school “fool”.
The freshman basketball coach was the study period monitor. He called me out of the cafeteria and he asked me if the rumor about me was true. I nodded my head affirmatively. He gave me a disgusted look and said, “If you had a brain, you’d be dangerous”.
My ensuing look must have tipped him off to the impact of his ridicule. He said, “You must put this out of your mind. We play in two hours. Today’s game is our biggest game of the season so far. I don’t want you playing with snakes in your head. “
For most of the game I forgot about my “boner”. My bad luck appeared to change until the last minute of the game. Our opponent was undefeated, and our biggest rival. I had stopped their top scorer cold – holding him scoreless to that point in the game. We clung to a small lead. And, I had scored most points I ever scored in my life.
With less than 30 seconds remaining in the game, our team had the ball. We enjoyed a two-point lead when our coach called a time out. When we got to the bench for instructions I caught a glimpse of “my friend” from English class in the gray skirt three rows up in the bleachers. She crossed her legs and the swishing sound of her stockings claimed all of my attention.
I didn’t hear a thing the coach said. I was focused on her beautiful legs. I was sure I saw her bottom garter and stocking welt as the ref blew the whistle to end the timeout.
The in-bounds pass came right to me, and the opposing team fouled me right away. I made the first free throw, and the opposing coach called a time out to “ice” my second shot.
When we got to our huddle, all I could think about was confirming my garter and stocking welt sighting from a minute earlier. My friend was now dangling her shoe on the end of her foot. I saw the heel of her stocking, and confirmed my view of her stocking welt and garter.
I remember the coach giving us specific instructions to not foul because we had a three-point lead. The vision of the tan stocking welt and garter clip had overcome me. As I stepped to the free throw line, an erection was fighting to get out of my athletic supporter.
Panic set in. I leaned over and faked taking a deep breath. I hoped my erection would subside. My coach hollered at me to shoot. I did, and put up a “brick” that bounced off the front of the rim. The ball came right back to me. I wanted to hide under the bleachers – knowing every person in the gym could see my erection.
At that moment, the opponent I had shut out stole the ball from me and dribbled toward his basket. Just as he left the floor to shoot, I fouled him in an attempt to block his shot. His shot fell through the hoop as the buzzer sounded. He caught nothing but net with his free throw to force the game into overtime.
My teammates and I were huddled at our bench as he shot his after-the-buzzer free throw. Our coach kicked the bleachers when the game-tying free through chewed through the net.
At the second the free throw dropped through, coach hollered my name at the top of his voice. Just as everything in the gym went absolutely silent, he said, “You’re so dumb that if you had a brain, you’d be dangerous.”
gym erupted in laughter. While my English class ridicule was scarring –
Coach’s put down was worse than any death I could imagine.
We played four overtimes. Finally, we lost the game by two points. The opponent I had shut down earlier scored 12 points for his team during the four overtimes. I scored two points for my team.
My teammates blamed the loss on me. Coach pointed me out in the locker room for stupid play, and choking. I knew the loss was my fault. Our hated rivals had their way because I came undone by stockings and garters during crunch time.
TO BE CONTINUED
showering, I decided to walk home instead of hanging around to watch the
junior varsity and varsity games. I stopped at the local hang out for my
favorite milk shake – hoping to forget about the day. My friend in the gray
skirt walked past the hang out, and waved. Just as I finished my shake, I
looked up to see her standing next to me.
She said, “You look like you need a friend. Why don’t you come over to my house?” She told me her mother was making pizza, and two girls were going to her house to study for the test the next day. I wanted to go home and hide, but I couldn’t erase the images of her sheer tan stockings and white garters in my mind.
When I got to her house, her mother greeted me at the door and asked if I was hungry. Her mother told me she heard I had a tough day. I said, “That’s life” and smiled. She said her daughter would be down soon. She was polite enough to inform me the girl that embarrassed me in English was also coming over, and that she hoped I might not carry a grudge. I told my friend’s mother I passed the event off as “contemporary girl-boy politics”.
Just as the pizza was coming out of the oven, the second girl showed up, and my friend came down from changing clothes. Both were dressed in plaid skirts and sweaters. They both wore stockings and the flat leather shoes of the era that barely covered their feet. I was worried about another embarrassing eruption.
We ate pizza and studied for less than an hour. The second girl said she had forgotten her history book and needed to get home to study for a history test. My friend asked me if I wanted to go to her family’s basement game room to watch a television program coming on in color. She was the only person I knew with a color television in 1966.
After she turned on the television, she asked me for the details about what had happened to me that day. I explained to her about her skirt getting caught on the desk, and my reaction to seeing her stockings, garter belt, thigh, and panties. At first she didn’t believe me, but relented when I described a gray flower on her panties. I told her the reaction I had to seeing her legs, and how seeing it again during the game created the same reaction all over again.
She told me how sorry she was for all the ridicule I had taken that day, and how bad she felt for being part of the cause. She told me she’d do anything to make me feel better. She followed that up with an, “I’m serious”.
Less than six hours earlier my thoughts about her stockings-clad legs had led to the worst day in my life. For reasons I don’t understand to this day, I looked her in her eyes and said, “I want to kiss your thigh”. She asked what that meant, and I explained I wanted to kiss her thighs above her stocking tops.
To my absolute surprise she agreed to let me kiss her thighs and feel her stockings. She made me promise not to tell anyone as long as I lived. (After 38 years, I’m breaking the promise.) When I kissed her thigh and she started to rub my head with the stockings on both thighs, I almost lost it. From the worst feelings I had experienced in fifteen years, to the best feelings of my life, I had gone around the world in less than a day.
She was excited by the impact she had on me. She slid her foot outside my pants to measure the reaction she had on me. Just as things were getting out of control, her mother opened the door and hollered down to tell her she had a telephone call.
While she was taking the call I got composed, tucked my shirt in, and went upstairs to thank her mother for the pizza and compassion. When she got off the phone, she said, “See you tomorrow”.
you tomorrow,” meant exactly that. When I called out to my friend as we each
entered school, she looked at me, and turned away. She was engaged in a
conversation with the girl that called me a pervert in the day before, and
just ignored me.
She sat down next to me at lunch. “I can’t stay”, she said. “Forget what we did last night. I like you, but Bettie really, really, likes you. She told me to stay away from you. Bettie and I have been friends too long to let a boy come between us.”
Bettie was the girl that called me a pervert in English class. If she could put me down if she liked me, what would she do if she didn’t like me? I was confused - really confused! And, I didn’t like how Bettie showed her affection!
I had always heard guys were the ones that forgot about the night before. My feelings for my friend were stronger the day after my reaction had worn off. I hadn’t noticed the sub-zero temperatures on the walk home the night before. My thoughts alternated between our shared stockings experience in her basement and our many grade-school conversations and experiences together.
Even more confusing was that Bettie was the ultimate babe in our class. She had a gymnast’s body - with giggle. She was the prettiest girl in our class, and her family wealth enabled her to wear the latest fashions. My folks’ modest means made it easy to disdain her “have it all” attitude.
Today, I acknowledge that Bettie just intimidated me with her looks, sexy body, always-right clothes, and popularity with guys older, smarter, better looking, and wealthier than me.
She had upper class guys with social clout falling at her feet. She had dated the varsity quarterback for 6 weeks, and cut his heart out when he started to express feelings for her. She broke up a relationship between the junior class president and his girlfriend of a year, and then dropped him two weeks later.
Freshman guys that just blown a win for the basketball team against its most hated rival, simply didn’t have the strength to ignore Bettie’s overture. Her legs were spectacular. Her long blonde hair was beautiful. Her healthy “lungs” awed every freshman guy.
Her most outstanding feature was her pretty face. She possessed the biggest blue eyes I had ever seen. God didn’t make many with the physical attributes he gave Bettie, and she already had the total looks package as a high school freshman.
When I got home the night before, my father asked me how I was doing. My response of “fine” was met with his stare that told me he didn’t believe my answer.
Dad said he had taken two calls about the game. He told me one father told him Coach had ripped me, and embarrassed me with his tirade. He said both callers told him I had carried the team with my hustle and my performance until coach ripped me. Then he said, “I heard you choked”.
Pop apologized for not being able to make my games that season. Dad was handicapped and worked as an appliance repairman for a local utiility. He wasn’t allowed to punch out until 5 o’clock, and our games started at 4 o’clock.
Pop said, “Son, there are two issues here”. He reminded me Coach had made the same mistake at the end of the game as a college player. He cost his team a trip to the national championship tourney with a last-second foul when his team was leading. The second issue was Pop’s demand that I expect respect. Handicapped men in the 1960’s were treated as second-class men. I had grown aware of people suddenly whispering when Pop came around. He had a chip on his shoulder about put down’s.
Pop told me said the second issue was to get Coach to apologize to me in front of the other players. Pop told me it was important to not to lose the trust of my teammates, and Coach’s actions might cause that reaction. Pop reminded me coach was human, and that he was a decent guy.
I approached Coach before the study hall the next day, and ask him to step outside so we could speak privately. When I asked for an apology at practice in front of the team, Coach exploded. In 1966, high school freshman NEVER questioned what a coach said – or did. Coach reminded me angrily that I had “blown the game” with my stupid play.
A giant apple grew in my throat. I had tears just at the edge of my eyes, but I stepped right up to his face. I quietly reminded him I remembered him making the same mistake three years ago in the game I saw, and that I would not allow him to steal my dignity. I insisted he be “man enough” to apologize at the start of practice.
He told me, “You just cost the team 10 minutes of extra sprints”. I didn’t retreat. I said, “Coach, you make the rules. I give you my best effort every minute every second I’m on the court, and I’ll learn from my mistakes. But, I expect you to treat me with respect.”
I went to my seat in study hall, fully expecting to get tossed off the team. Just as I sat down, Bettie slid in beside me. She got real close, and rubbed her left leg against my right leg. She said, “I overheard you giving it to Coach for the way he treated you yesterday. You sure told him”.
The prospect of somebody hearing my conversation with coach didn’t dawn on me. I looked into her big blue eyes and said, “That conversation was private. It was none of your business. If you mention it to anyone, you’ll get me kicked off the team. Forget you heard the conversation, or you just made an enemy.”
Bettie was surprised with my forcefulness with her. Guys usually rolled over to get her attention and guys in my class were supposed to bow in her presence. She moved closer, and I could feel nylon rub against my leg. She passed me a note telling me she really liked the reaction she got out of me in English class the day she caught me looking at her legs.
Again, I looked down those spectacular big baby blue eyes, and said, “I don’t like how you put me down. It doesn’t feel any better today than yesterday. You owe me an apology, and a promise you will never embarrass me for the sake of getting a laugh.”
The bell rang to end study hall. As I got up, Bettie looked to see if she had gotten a reaction. She didn’t know I had worn an athletic supporter to prevent embarrassment like I experienced the previous day? Like many guys, I placed my books in front of my crotch to mask any reaction. She smiled, thinking I was hiding a reaction from her.
At practice, Coach made us run suicide sprints, and told the team I was the cause. He announced a new starting five for the next game. I was sentenced to the bench.. He told me during drills that there would be no apology.
When I got home after practice, Bettie called. She invited me to her house for a holiday open house Saturday night. She told me appropriate attire included coat and tie. She asked how I had done on the English test, and I told her I thought I got an “A”. I credited my studying with our friend.
At study hall the next day, Bettie really poured it on. She wore a very short skirt, and she crossed her legs every 30 seconds – rubbing against my leg with her beautiful nylon-clad legs. My athletic supporter prevented embarrassing evidence from showing, but it also caused me very real pain as it restrained my normal reaction to such teasing.
My friends were more thrilled with Bettie’s interest in me than I. They continued to remind me about her “exploits” with sophomores and juniors, and how large her “lungs” looked under her sweaters. My best friend knew I found legs more attractive than “lungs”, and reminded me of her perfectly shaped gams.
When Bettie’s father was introduced to me Saturday, he made a point of telling me Coach had done the same thing to his son two years earlier. As President of the School Board, he would make sure Coach never got the varsity-coaching job he coveted. He invited me to have a good time at the party, and moved to greet other guests.
I was furious with Bettie for violating a confidence. Our mutual friend attended the party, but wouldn’t talk with me. Bettie took me to the game room in the basement to shoot pool. The walls of the game room were paneled with oak judge’s paneling, and the room included a poker table and pictures of Bettie’s father during his college football career lined the paneled walls.
Bettie looked just like her mother. Her mother didn’t appear old enough to have a 17-year-old son, and a 15-year-old daughter. She was every bit as fit as Bettie. It was clear Bettie’s personality traits were inherited from her father. Her mother was demure, sweet, and quietly friendly. Bettie’s mother asked me to be their guest the next Saturday at the Christmas dance at their country club.
Bettie acted surprised her mother had extended that invitation. Later, she pushed me into a basement closet. We engaged in the teen grouping, but Bettie’s hands were much faster than mine were. She slid her hands behind my belt, and down my pants. She got an immediate reaction, and cooed.
When I tried to slide my hands to her legs, she moved them to her “lungs”. While her “lungs” were impressive, I was more interested in her legs. I was worried about an explosive second-stage reaction to Bettie’s hand, and moved her hand to a safer place.
I told Bettie my concerns about going to the country club because I didn’t know the “rules”. The night of the dance, Bettie’s parents sensed my uneasiness. They made graceful efforts to make me feel comfortable. Her father told me he heard I addressed coach. He assured me Bettie had made it clear nobody else was to know, and he respected my confidence request. Mr. White told me he was impressed that I didn’t retreat from Coach, but I dealt with the matter discreetly. I had to look up “discreetly” in the dictionary.
When I danced with Bettie, her father cut in. I danced with her mother, and noticed her front garter as we moved across the floor. The music ended just in time for me. Bettie had become aware of my practice of suppressing reaction to my hormone by wearing an athletic supporter, and informed me it was not part of accepted evening attire.
Bettie’s brother’s girlfriend was ill, and our mutual friend stood in as a last minute escort. Bettie’s brother didn’t dance, so Bettie’s mother insisted I dance with our friend. She too, had on stockings and garters. When we danced, she was very aware of my immediate reaction. Instead of pulling back as I expected, she moved even closer to me. We talked, but Bettie soon cut in.
Fortunately, the band finished playing for a break just as Bettie cut in. I thought I was caught. When we left that evening, we rode home in Bettie’s brother’s car. When he walked our friend up her long driveway to her door, Bettie and I took advantage of privacy. She walked me to my door, and during our extended goodnight kiss, she got the reaction she tried to get in the family game room. Fortunately for me, my parents had retreated to bed before I got home, and I was spared tough questions.
The evening had been very nice. My first country club dinner was enjoyable, and Bettie’s family was very nice. But, all I could think about was dancing with my friend, and her reaction to my reaction.
I knew I was Bettie’s “boy of the month”. I knew it had been closed to a month since Bettie had first declared me “off limits”. I was hoping she’d tire of me soon, and move on.
I called our mutual friend Sunday afternoon. I told her my feelings for her, and my expectations for Bettie’s pending move. She allowed she was confused, but her friendship with Bettie was more important than a short-term relationship with me. She told me Bettie gave her second-by-second accounts of each time Bettie and I were together. She warned me, “If you and Bettie do it, we can never get together.”
During English class the next Monday, my friend flashed me a shot at her stockings welt. My. Throughout class, she allowed me great looks at her great legs. It’s a good thing I had worn an athletic supporter.
At the end of English class Bettie asked me to stay for a moment. She told me the captain of the varsity basketball team had asked her out, and she said yes. She quickly said, “I hope I haven’t hurt you”, and walked away.
hormones, sudden awareness that adults don’t always play fair and confusing
signals from girls upset my simple vision of life.
I learned Dad’s steadiness was a constant I could rely on. Dad always had simple answers to complex problems. He never showed panic. Dad had a simple outlook on life. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated. Give your best effort in anything you undertake. Follow principles - not the crowd. Alct from honesty and those four rules will work for you".
angered me for using me for thrills. But, I used Bettie to experience things
that her wealth offered. I was guilty, too. Bettie made me real
happy when she pulled the plug on her first freshman boy experience. I really
wanted to talk with Brenda, and now the door was open.
Basketball practice that day quickly turned bad for me. Coach yelled at me every time I missed a shot in drills. He blamed me any time a team drill didn’t work as he drew it up. When we scrimmaged, he cussed at me and tossed ugly personal insults at me that made my teammates laugh at me.
Dad sensed something was wrong at dinner, and asked me if I wanted to talk with him after doing my homework. Pop usually had answers for my problems. When I told him about Coach’s tirades at practice there was no shoulder to cry on. He said, “Son, you earn the respect you get. You’ve either done something wrong, or haven’t done enough right to win the respect of your Coach. Take your medicine and work harder. In time, everything works out."
Dad had taught me to work hard. Pop made it clear Coach couldn’t put me down, or keep me out of games, if I exceeded Coach's standards.
I was still on the bench at the end of the first quarter of our game the next night. We were playing away, and we were getting some “home cooking” from the officials. The other team’s star was lighting us up. When our best player got his third foul called on him a minute into the second period, Coach put me in. Coach told me to stay on their star like a “cheap suit”.
My mind told me this might be my last chance. Just as I went into the game, my friend Brenda, Bettie, and Bettie’s father walked into the gym. They sat in the second row behind our bench. The first trip down the court our opponents passed the ball toward their big guy - just like earlier in the game. Sitting on the bench made it easy to see what they were doing. I exploded into the passing lane, stole the ball, and dribbled the ball down the court.
Just short of the elbow at the foul line I pulled up, faked a shot, and laid a bounce pass into the hands of a teammate for a lay up. That score juiced me, and my teammates. I sped back down the floor, and met my opponent at the time line. He faked left and took off down the right side. I had noticed on the bench he almost always went right. I anticipated where he was going, and I intercepted their pass to him – again!
One of my teammates had taken a flight toward our basket. I nailed him with a baseball pass, and took off down the floor to follow up. He missed the lay up, but the rebound came right to me. I put it back up for two points.
Coach went wild hollering, “Press, Press, PRESS”. My job was to press the ball out of bounce. When they threw the in-bounds pass it hit the top of my hands, and I slapped it off the head of their guy standing out of bounds.
Our ball! In just three trips down the court I had got our offense going with my defensive effort. The best feeling in the world was my teammates pounding my back.
Their coach called a time out. As Coach drew up our defense on his chalkboard, I heard swishing sounds behind the bench. I knew better than to look up. I couldn't get distracted.
Coach looked right at me and said, “If you mess this play up, you’ll pick splinters out of you ass until March”. Looking at me he said, "You still scare me. If you had a brain, you’d be dangerous”.
My job was to set a screen. As our best shooter cut around me, the guy guarding him ran right into me. He bounced off me, and I was scared the refs were going to call a foul on me.
I just knew I was going to the bench – sentenced to a season of splinters and Coach's wrath. The officials called the foul on the other guy, and sent me to the foul line.
Bettie’s father said, “You'll nail em” just loud enough for me to hear his voice. I was shaking like a leaf in a winter wind.
Coach didn't suffer free throw misses without a verbal rebuke. I caught a rim bounce to make the first free throw. I hit nothing but net on the second shot. What relief!
Just like Coach ordered, I hung on my guy like a cheap suit. After reporting in the game, I held my opponent scoreless, grabbed six rebounds, and scored four points. We went into half with a four-point lead, after trailing by six when I wntered the game.
When we came out for the second half, Coach sat me on the bench. He said at halt time that he wanted our best five players in the game to start the second half.
When I took my seat at the end of the bench, I heard the swishing behind me. I turned ever so slightly. Bettie had on a short skirt, but the pantyhose queen was wearing stockings with garters. I almost went into shock.
The second half started just like the first half had begun, and we were down by six points when the third quarter ended. Coach called my name and told me to report to start the fourth quarter. When we got to the huddle, I thought I saw Brenda’s garter on the bottom of her crossed leg.
Coach looked right at me and said, “If you don’t choke, we'll win this game.” Talk about programming me to fail. The sequence of events after seeing Brenda’s garter was lined up just like in my “choke game”.
In his talk with me at breakfast, Pop told me to expect good things to happen. He encouraged me to see myself succeed, and to deny every negative thought.
Coach had failed to tell us who was "checking" their hot shot. Coach's standing rule was to guard the opponent that was guarded by the player you replaced. I followed the rule, but our guy guarding their star thought I was supposed to be on the star.
Their center won the toss and tipped the ball right to their star. He drove right to the hoop. I played back, and blocked his shot just before he laid it in. We got the rebound, and Coach called a time out.
As soon as we got to the huddle he grabbed my jersey and jerked me to the bench. Again, he hollered, “If you had a brain you’d be dangerous”. The guy who was supposed be guarding their star spoke up and said, “it’s my fault coach. I missed my assignment”.
Coach chaged our defensive roles at that moment. We battled back. I didn’t get an opportunity for a clear shot, and knew better than to force up any wild shots. Our shooting was cold, and we scored and scored just eight points in the fourth quarter.
But, we held our opponent to just two points with in-their-face defensive pressure. To my surprise, coach kept me in for the start of the overtime period.
They scored off the tip, and threw a full-court press on us after their basket. Their hot-shot stole our in-bounds pass and dropped in an easy lay up. We were down four points just 15 seconds into overtime. We missed our shot next shot, and they went into a two-minute freeze.
With 30 seconds left they called a timeout. Coach was frantic. He told us we couldn’t afford a foul and we had to get a steal. The last thing he said was, “Call a timeout if we score”.
They set a pick on me, and passed the ball toward "hot shot". I fought through the screen and deflected the ball just enough that the ball hit one of their players and fell out of bounce. Our ball! We passed the ball to our best shooter, and they let him drive the floor for an easy basket.
Five seconds left on the clock. Coach called a time out. He said told me, “You press the baseline. They like to throw it up, and when they do, you knock the pass down. Just don’t do something stupid!”
As we went out to set up press I heard a voice near the bench say, “See it”. I looked up, thinking it was Bettie’s father offering encouragement.
At a second glace, I saw Pop. He was standing by the door of the gym. He pointed to his eyes, and smiled.
Just as coach said, they tried to throw the pass over me. I timed my jump and I caught their pass in mid air. I took two quick dribbles and went up for a shot.
I heard a roaring voice from their bench holler, “Foul him!” One of their defenders lunged at me, and another guy hit my arm and shoulder from behind just as I released the ball.
I hit the floor face first. The guy that hit my arm fell on top of me, and I heard a whistle. Everything went dark. My head was throbbing in the worst pain I experienced in my life.
The reason everything had gone dark was because I had a cut over my eye. Blood gushed into both of my eyes, all over my uniform, and on the court. The trainer put iced towels above my eye, and asked me if I was okay.
The ref stood over me and asked Coach, “Can you put gauze over his cut, and tape him up?” Coach said, “I don’t think so”.
I asked, “Why?” The ref said, “Son you have to shoot a free throw”. I begged Coach to let me shoot the free throws. They taped me up, and told Coach, "I can make them.”
Coach said, “Just make the first one”. I was confused. I knew we were behind by two points, and we needed both free throws. I heard Pop's earlier encourgement to "see it".
I closed my eyes. Oh, the pain. The pain couldn't get out, and I couldn't get it out of my mind. Everthing on my face was throbbing. I was in a daze, but I saw myself take the shot and I could “see it” go in – just like my Pop told me.
The ref asked me if I was okay, and gave me the ball. He said, “You have ten seconds to shoot”.
I took two rhythm dribbles, and drilled the free throw. The scoreboard buzzer rang, and somebody slapped my ass. My replacement tossed me a towel and said, “I’ll hold em for you”.
The dazed state I experienced just got worse. I thought I was supposed to get another free throw, and I didn’t want to miss the third overtime.
When I looked at the clock, it showed two seconds. I failed to look at the score. Dad took me off to the hospital. It took seven stitches to close the cut over my eye.
Pop pushed his elbow into to my midsection, and said, “One stitch for every point you scored ”.
He started to say something else, but just went silent. I looked at him as we walked out of the hospital. He had a tear in his eye. But he faked a cough, and told me he was proud I had hung tough.
When we got home, Mom grabbed me and gave me a huge hug as I walked in. She said she heard all about the game from all the people that called. She told me she had taken four messages.
I called Brenda first. She wanted to know how I felt. I told her it had been the best day of my life – next to when she helped through my worst day. We both laughed at my incoherent reply. After gushing about how I played, she asked if I heard the swishes. “Yes, but what’s up with the pantyhose queen wearing stockings,” I asked. Brenda said, let her tell you.
When Bettie got on the line, she said, “I’m sorry about English class today. I lied to you. The captain of the varsity hasn’t asked me out. I saw you and Brenda dance at the Country Club. I knew it was her you cared for. I couldn’t accept a boy might like somebody else more than me. I should have told you both the truth. I’m really sorry. Can we be friends?”
To Be Continued
status didn't last long. We won our next game, but I played poorly. Coach got on
me, and the cut on my eye got opened by an opponent's elbow. I got
stitched up - again. Pop couldn’t get out of work to see this game so Bettie's
Dad took me to the hospital. It took “Old Sawbones” fifteen minutes to
close my cut. While my mother soothed “hurts” with hot chocolate,
Bettie’s Dad saw pizza as the solution to teen pains. He took Bettie,
Brenda, and I for pizza after I got seven more stitches.
Bettie and Brenda sandwiched me between them in the back seat of Bettie’s father’s car.. Bettie’s ever-present mini skirt did not provide her much modesty. She slid in first, and I could tell she was sans panties under her pantyhose. Even though her aggressiveness had turned me off, I couldn’t deny that her package got my motor running. Bettie’s legs were slim and muscled. She knew how to swish to get my attention and loved the feeling of power she could grab with just a “swish”..
After I moved to the middle, and sat on the hump of the big Cadillac, Brenda slid in real close to me. Brenda took my hand and slid it to the top of her knees. The outside temperature was in the low 20’s, and she was more interested in the warming potential of my hand than allowing me to explore her stockings.
Our school colors were red, white, and black. Brenda wore a pleated red, black, and white plaid skirt. Almost every girl in school owned one just like it - except Bettie. Bettie set her own fashion path, and was bold enough not to follow the crowd. Brenda wore a red wool v-neck sweater, and a white oxford blouse. At 5’ 8’ tall, Brenda's long legs had nowhere to go except against mine.
Bettie’s father brought up how Coach bullied me that day. He said Coach picked a player each year to bully. He told me, again, his son had been that player two years before. I could tell Bettie’s Dad didn’t see Coach’s good side. While Mr. White treated me well, he needed another example unrelated to him so he would be credible when he went after coach’s job with the school board.
Bettie’s father had just won a seat on the school board, and had been elected President at the new Board’s first meeting. He said, “There is a credible rumor Coach Hennon is going to resign as the varsity coach at the end of the season. I promise you your Coach Maravich won’t get past nomination for the varsity job”. As he spoke, Bettie’s father grew angrier with each word.
I was too happy to give much thought to Mr. White’s rants about Coach. We’d won the game, I’d won respect from my teammates, and I was free to pursue my feelings for Brenda. Life was as good as it gets for a high school freshman with red hair.
Bettie was a head turner. She had the All American girl-next-door looks. Her mini skirts were modest by standards of the time. But her total package was “finished” more than any 15-year-old girl I had seen. I had not heard locker room stories of Bettie with older guys. Everything I heard was that she was a heartbreaker that just “teased”. Still, every guy on the team was awed by her presence.
Brenda also owned All-American girl fresh faced beauty. She treated almost everyone with a naïve sweetness. While she claimed she was 5’ 8 1/2, her mother whispered once, "she's really 5'9" or 5'10". Brenda hadn’t developed as fast as Bettie. Also, Bettie’s family wealth enabled her to wear designer clothes that gave Bettie a polished and sophisticated appearance that belied her 15-year age.
Despite her self-consciousness about her height, Brenda possessed drop-dead good looks. She weighed 120 pounds, and she had no soft spots. Her breasts were firm. Next to Bettie’s bounce, Brenda’s breasts were modest.
My friendship with Brenda blossomed in fifth grade - the product of all the Sunday School picnics, Vacation Bible Schools, and Christmas parties we’d attended together.
During a fifth grade recess, I shared with Brenda my dream of playing professional baseball.
told me her dream was to teach elementary school. By the sixth grade, were we
sharing with each other our hopes and fears about many things in life. Brenda
was very much my buddy.. We shared our secret crushes classmates of the
opposite sex. Our secrets created a bond that demanded loyalty I embraced.
Until our first year of high school, there was no sexual tension between us. After the night in her basement when we almost lost ourselves, my fantasies confused me. What 15-year-old boy could resist a very pretty All-American girl with a perfect complexion, and legs that never ended. Gee, my hormones raced when I thought about Brenda.
As I was getting out of the car, Brenda whispered to me to call her in one hour. Mom greeted me at the door with a June Cleaver hug. She made me a hot chocolate, and piled on marshmallows. Mom made me hot chocolate to celebrate good happenings and to soothe bad circumstances.
Dad sat down, and talked with me about the game. Pop told me he was told about the effort I extended. He said he heard Coach dad shown me up. Pop explained how he grew strong by people like Coach. Pop told me it was important to not make Coach “look small” or try to get even when I got embarrassed. He told me my peers knew I was getting bullied, but they would respect me more if I didn’t let Coach see my frustration.
He told me that when I made the free throw with blood dripping in my eyes, I had won the respect of teammates and opponents. But, he warned me, “You have to win respect everyday.
At precisely an hour after I got out of Bettie’s car, I called Brenda. She apologized to me for how she handled the triangle between Bettie, her, and I. She also told me Bettie really didn’t have a date with the captain of the varsity basketball team, but backed off her pursuit of me after seeing Brenda and I dance at the Country Club Christmas party.
Brenda said she was pretty sure Bettie had real feelings for me, but backed away because of the importance of their friendship. Brenda went on to say Bettie was used to boys falling over themselves because of her looks and she really was used to getting her way.
I changed the subject to Brenda. I told her how great she looked, and how good she made me feel. When I brought up the subject of the evening in her basement, Brenda recoiled. She said, she got carried away because she had fantasized about being desired by boys. Brenda told me she hated to see me hurt like I seemed to be that night and she had felt sorry for me. That sure broke my “bubble”. I thought there was something between us.
Brenda asked me to promise to not pressure her to do that again. She told me, as much as she liked the feeling she had when we were lost in our lust, she feared it would lead us to trouble. She reminded me how we learned together in
I told Brenda the feelings I had for her were feelings I had never experienced. She mentioned her feelings for me were stronger than the feelings of our friendship. She suggested we not allow ourselves to be alone together for a month. While I didn’t like the prospect of not being alone with Brenda, I knew we had to understand our feelings before we went too far.
For the next month Brenda and I talked everyday. Brenda, Bettie and I sat next to each other at lunch, and in study hall. Coach made references every day at practice about my girlfriend, but my playing time increased significantly. We won nine straight games.
I followed Pop’s advice to a “T”. I was the first player on the court, the last player off the court, and I had learned to run my motor at 78 rpm. (Those of you of age in the late 60’s know 45 rpm’s were the standard, with 33-rpm albums entering the pop culture.)
Coach was too proud to let me start games, but I rarely came out of a game once I got in. We weren’t an athletic team. We didn’t shoot well. Our aggressive close-quarters defense carried us. Coach got us submarine sandwiches for lunch every day we had a game, and got the cafeteria workers to load them with onions. He really thought the onions made a difference. They made my stomach hurt.
We readied to play our hated rival in the last game of the season. They were undefeated in the conference and had blown every other team off the court since my “nightmare” game. A win against us sealed the conference championship for them. If we won the game, we finished the season as co-champs. The varsity coach at their school had resigned, and the rumor mill said their freshmen coach would likely get promoted if they beat us and finished with an undefeated season.
Coach lived in the community of our hated rival. He had been an All-State player at that high school. He, too, really wanted the varsity-coaching job at his alma mater. Coach worked us harder to prepare for that game than any previous game. He told us after our last practice we could win the game if I was able to shut down their hot shot.
told me at our team meeting that I would start. Privately, he told me he
would jerk me out the first time I even hinted at experiencing a "brain
burp". Our opponent never got close to us. We won by 16 points,
which was our largest margin of victory of the season. I held “hot shot”
scoreless by hanging on him all game like a cheap suit.
showed us film of our first game. Hot shot was quick, but he used the same
two moves every trip down the floor. Holding him down was easier than
taking an open-book test.
I scored 15 points which was a life-time best for me. My feet were blistered front and back from starting and stopping with hot shot’s cuts, and I was as tired as I had ever felt.
But, the tired was a good tired. Guys on the team gave me so much encouragement.
Coach kept me in for the entire game. In the locker room after the game, Coach told us we won because we had played at 78 rpm’s. Then, Coach looked at me. He said, “You played at 80 rpm’s today”. He complimented each player, and walked out of the locker room.
Brenda and Bettie were waiting for me when I came out of the locker room after showering. Bettie planted a big kiss on my cheek, and told me I played great. Brenda planted a kiss on my other cheek, and said, “You really were great out there”.
Our self-imposed month of physical separation had elapsed, and Brenda invited me over to her house to study for an English test the next day. She told me her parents would be out, but Bettie was going to chaperone us to keep us honest.
I arrived at Brenda’s house early; hoping to be alone with her before Bettie got there. Bettie answered the door when I knocked, and told me she knew why I was early. We studied at the dining room table. Brenda slipped off her shoe, and rubbed her foot on my calf. I slid my hand under the table, and stroked her leg until I reached the place where her stockings stopped.
Brenda moved closer, and allowed my hand to slide to the meeting of her stocking top, thigh, and garter. I thought I my zipper would bust with my reaction to touching Brenda’s leg at her stocking top. Bettie sensed Brenda and I were getting lost in each other and she went home an hour before Brenda’s parents were due home.
Brenda must have read my mind. She invited me to her bedroom, and we made emergency escape plans for me in case her parent came home early. Once in her bedroom, we fell into long passionate kisses. It was really the first time we kissed for a prolonged period. I took off Brenda’s sweater, and explored the outside of her bra with my fingers. When she moaned, I unfastened her bra.
Brenda resisted for a second, and said, “No”! I retreated on her command. After what seemed like minutes of silence, I kissed Brenda’s breasts. Without her bra, Brenda’s breasts appeared much larger than when she was dressed. As I kissed her breasts, I also rubbed the top of her stockings, and thigh. I tried to go further, but she begged me not to “push her”.
I honored Brenda”s request. She rolled me over on my back and got on top of me. I pushed her thighs and backside on top of me without removing my pants. Right then, we heard he parents drive up. We both jumped up. I tucked my shirt in, grabbed my coat and books, and kissed her quickly. While she dressed quickly, I stepped from her bedroom window, onto the roof of her front porch. When the front door closed, and I heard her greet each of her parents, I jumped off the roof and ran home.
When I looked at my watch, I discovered her parents were 30 minutes late getting home. I was 15 minutes past my curfew, and I knew Pop would be waiting for me. To my surprise, Dad wasn’t home when I got home. Mom told me he was meeting with Mr. White about politics.
Brenda and I prayed together the next night, and asked God to forgive us for our lust. We made rules about making out. Brenda made me promise to not to kiss her breasts. I wasn’t allowed to touch her thighs beyond her stocking tops. We also made a pack that we would never make out at each other’s house. Twice, we were within a minute of going the whole way, and getting caught.
I got a job at the local lumberyard after the season. My job enabled me to make some badly needed spending money, and still have time for baseball practice. I also worked Thursday evenings after practice, helping the cutter prep for the next day’s deliveries. My job was to bring wood to the cutter, and to throw away scraps.
away scrap lumber bothered me. It made no sense to me to throw away good
lumber. The cutter told me the customers paid for the whole piece, and it was
unethical to sell scraps somebody had paid for. I asked the owner if I could
have the scraps. He asked why, and I told him I wanted to build a tree house. He
found it amusing I was 15, and wanted a tree house. He gave me a tree house
plan, and offered me a 20% discount on extra lumber I needed.
I later found out he thought I might steal wood from him, and could tell by what I purchased if I stole from him. He even offered to let me take lumber I needed before I had cash. He let me work off what I owed him. With the help of a friend, I built a tree house on top of the hill over looking the river. Nobody knew who owned the land, and I was ready to tear my project down if the owner emerged and challenged me.
I finished the tree house just before school was out. Brenda and I went there after church on Sundays to talk. Brenda always dressed up for church, and she started wearing high heels when I grew past 6’ feet tall. I have vivid memories of the views I got climbing the ladder below Brenda each Sunday.
We undid all the good we did by going to church every Sunday that summer. I loved kissing her thighs. Brenda found extra long stockings in a department store in the city, and my “legal limit” was extended 3-4 inches. Rarely would she allow me to kiss her breasts because she told me what she feared it would lead to.
Pop was onto the tree house. He gave me his “birds and bees talk”. He also bought me three condoms. We called them rubbers in those days. Pop threatened to cut off my inheritance if I used one, but threatened to cut off my “kahunas” off if I had sex without one. Brenda and I got very passionate, but we felt we could control our passions.
Brenda was a month older than me, and had her sweet 16 birthday a month after the new school year started. Brenda, her parents, and I celebrated at a restaurant in the big city 22 miles up river. I spent $40 on Brenda’s present – which is like spending $250 today.
The next day Brenda’s mother took her to get her driver’s permit, and took her to the doctor. Brenda was surprised. her mother wanted to know if her daughter had lost her virginity. When the doctor told her mother everything was in the same place as the day she was born, Brenda exhaled. Her mother then asked the physician to prescribe birth control pills for Brenda.
Brenda was excited about getting her driver’s permit. Her father had been promoted to sales manager at the car dealership he worked for, and got a demo to drive home every night. This left a car for Brenda’s mother, who didn’t work. It also meant Brenda had access to a car when she passed her driver’s test.
Brenda told me about the birth control pills, but said she was confused. Her mother wouldn’t talk with her about her reasons for the pills. The doctor told Brenda the pills didn’t take effect for a month after she started using them.
My parents arranged a dinner for my 16th birthday at our house. They invited Brenda, and she gave me a really nice shirt as a present.
She had passed her driver’s test that afternoon, and took me for a ride after dinner. When we got into the car she gave me a small box wrapped in gold foil wrapping paper and a gold bow. Brenda drove to the town across the river. She drove up the hill, and to the motel that had its name etched on the key in the box she gave me.
I finally figured out what my birthday gift really was. Brenda gave me her virginity (and took mine) as my real 16th birthday present. The Monday after my birthday surprise from Brenda, tryouts started for basketball. The coach of our rival’s freshman team won out for the varsity-coaching job at my school.
The new coach organized tryouts to the second. Drills were posted in the locker room before practice. An equipment manager ran the clock during practice to keep everything on schedule.
Coach expected us to be physical and fearless. Physical play was an advantage for me because I didn’t have the speed or skill of the older players. I dove for loose balls on the floor without consideration for pain, and set hard picks. I soon earned the nickname “Polio” because I had “straw berries” on my legs that caused me to limp like a “cripple”.
When cuts were posted I was shocked I wasn’t on the list of junior varsity players. How could the coach forget that I shut out his hot shot scorer last season? I was destroyed. I was sure I had a good tryout. A senior saw my disappointed look and pointed to the varsity roster. He told me to take a closer look. I had been selected to play on the varsity.
Brenda knew I made the team before I did. Bettie’s brother was a returning starter, and team captain. He drove to school and told Bettie when he got home that I had made varsity. Bettie immediately called Brenda. As I walked home after practice Brenda met me near the school.
She greeted me with a hug, and told me she had heard the news about making the varsity. She suggested we stop and get a Coke at the hang out. Brenda often offered me a Coke before dropping bad news on me. She told me she had made a mistake with my birthday present and we couldn’t “do it” again.
Brenda said she had told her mother about her birthday present to me. She made me promise not to pressure her for sex. Needless to say, Brenda’s news was not what I wanted to hear.
Brenda had told Bettie about the birthday “present” that she had given me. Bettie delighted in teasing me about “Brenda’s present”. When I informed Bettie that Brenda and I were "on the wagon" Bettie said Brenda and I wouldn’t last two weeks before we did it again. Bettie reminded me I couldn’t think of anything but sex BEFORE Brenda's present. I let Bettie know I had promised to not pressure Brenda for sex. She laughed at me.
Bettie asked me if I really thought I could abstain. She reminded me how easy it had been for her to embarrass me with her swishes. Bettie’s teasing made it easier to deal with the celibacy I faced.
The start of the season was very exciting. In fact I was so wired for the first game that I collected three fouls in the first five minutes. We lost the game by 15 points. I had won a starting position, but my contributions that night were meager. I played like a nervous sophomore.
Brenda borrowed the family car and told her mom she, Bettie, and I were going for pizza after the game. This started a tradition for Brenda, Bettie and I. Bettie rode with us to get pizza, but her folks met us at the pizzeria and took Bettie home that night.
Brenda drove up to the tree house after pizza. We “parked”. In less than five minutes we had forgotten our pledges to each other to not “do it” again. Brenda asked if I still carried the protection in my wallet. I reached into my wallet, and our hormone-driven passions took over. My month-long celibacy ended quickly. Brenda convinced me to “play” a doubleheader.
Brenda erupted during the second half of our doubleheader. I was afraid I had hurt her. I didn’t understand. On the way home I asked Brenda to tell me if "it hurt" when we “did it”. Brenda gave me a surprising lesson in understanding the biological side of the opposite sex.
explained the “Q-Tip” theory to me. She asked me if I knew what felt
better when I scratched the inside of my ear with a “Q-Tip” – my ear –
or the Q-Tip. I told Brenda “my ear” and suddenly Brenda’s point
sunk in. She laughed at me.
Brenda’s stockings and garters were never more than 30 seconds from my thoughts. We visited the tree house often. I seemed to play better basketball after Brenda and I shared a passionate encounter. Brenda caught on. We often sandwiched in a “doubleheader” before and after Friday night games.
Bettie’s flirting regressed. She lost her freshman reputation as a “ball buster”. Bettie usually double dated with Brenda and I, and she grew to become a close friend of mine, too. For some reason, Bettie rarely went out with the same guy more than two times.
Brenda detailed every encounter to Bettie. Bettie often teased me about playing doubleheaders. I never shared with teammates or friends what went on between Brenda and I, and I resented Bettie knowing the details Brenda and I shared.
The intensity of the relationship Brenda and I shared continued for the next two school years. My skills and basketball performance continued to grow, although I stopped growing at 6’3”.
Bettie’s brother attended the
At Mineos, Bettie’s brother talked Bettie and Brenda into visiting Pitt for a weekend. He promised to get them dorm rooms with girls he knew, and meal passes. He even promised to take them to a party at his fraternity. I felt Bettie’s brother would protect my interests if some college guy started moving on Brenda.
Our team made it to Regional Play Offs and we opened the playoofs with a rare Saturday game.. Bettie and Brenda had gone to the
Brenda wasn’t there for support for the first time in two and a half years. She knew just what to say to after a loss, and she knew how to coax a smile from me. Brenda didn’t make church the next morning. I was bummed out. Brenda’s mother told me Brenda called and asked her to tell me she would get home that afternoon.
Brenda called me at five-thirty and asked me to come over after dinner. When I got to her house, Brenda ran to me and gave me a long hug. She said she heard I taken an elbow during the game and got groggy. She got a forced smile out of me, and then she dropped a “nuke” right into my heart.
Brenda said she had gone to the frat party. She told me she got drunk at they party, and then Brenda exploded in tears. When she stopped crying, she told me she had sex the night before with a guy she met at the fraternity party.
knew me well, and knew what my reaction would be to her submission to
temptation. The only emotion I expressed was sadness. I didn't make a scene.
She pleaded for forgiveness. I forgave her, but she knew my feelings
about loyalty. I fell into a deep funk that lasted past the prom and into
Brenda had already bought her dress for the prom. I never told anyone except Pop what happened. Pain, respect for Brenda, and wounded pride kept me quiet after our break up. I still loved her deeply when we went to the prom, and the flame stilled burned for Brenda into the summer.
Our parents tried to put us back together. My mother and father often told me how much they liked Brenda, and my mother often reminded me she had talked with Brenda. She told me dozens of times Brenda did not have another boyfriend. .
Brenda told her mother what happened, and her mother told her father. Brenda’s father worked long hours, but often attended sporting events I participated in. Brenda was the apple of his eye, and it pained him to see her hurt.
During the summer, he and Brenda came to a lot of my baseball games. He asked me to join them for Cokes after one game. He called me from work one day to talk with me about forgiving Brenda.
After church the next Sunday I told him that I had forgiven Brenda, but that I’d never get over my inability to trust her again. He said he understood, but reminded me what great a girl she was.
The breakup with Brenda provided me the opportunity to play in two baseball leagues that summer. I played American Legion baseball, and I got invited to play in the “steel league” sponsored by the steel mills. Playing in the “steel league” enabled me to get a summer job in the steel mill – which paid great money.
Two years after graduation, Bettie visited me for a weekend at college. She worked in her father’s business instead of going to college. Bettie told me during her visit she had set Brenda up at the Pitt frat party get Brenda seduced. Bettie and I fell in love the following summer. We married a year later, and have remained married for 33 years.

"THE QUEEN OF STOCKINGS"
By Paul L. Brenner
A brilliant collogue of color radiated in the summer evening sky like delicate fingers gently trace the curves of a lovers body. Evening darkness covered Mercedes as she floated in her new red German engineering wonder through the posh Minnesota resort neighborhood. The local oldie station boomed through an expensive surround sound system designed to pump reality into the soul of its listener. The familiar lyrics rang through the quiet night foretelling of events to yet to transpire. Though the poet’s popularity had waned, the song continued to hold its seductive allure "playing with the Queen of Hearts…". After what seemed an eternity at the office, her haven of rest and relaxation was now within reach. Art is both pleasure and a savage task master to the sensitive commercial artist. A longer than usual day produced some well deserved overtime on the paycheck now tucked neatly in an almost new black Gucci purse. Matching black four inch spiked heels completed the exterior picture of fashionable grace. Though not thrilled about spending so much time away from her domain, the welcomed opportunity for some extra cash, was especially appreciated, especially considering her immanent plans to spend the long upcoming three day weekend shopping at the new lingerie store in town. "Nothing was really quite as satisfying as a new pair of black seamed slinky stockings clinging to shapely legs," she breathed to herself under her breath, "especially the old fashioned sheer nylon stockings that would soon be attached to a lacy matching garter belt that in turn would be framed by the new fashioned beauty of a matching back lace thong." Breathless, was a single word that told the story. The old world of stockings and garter merged with the new world thong forming the artist’s creation and her lover’s delight.
To the normally shy and reserved Mercedes, today was a landmark in discovery. Today, Mercedes became intoxicated for the first time as she witnessed confused and irrational responses from her co-workers. The unusual response by the office crowd formed its root by a seemingly innocent unpremeditated act. Exposed to slight evidence of unmentionables on such a sleek firm body, like the form possessed by Mercedes sent shockwaves through the imaginations of those brave enough to savor such wickedly delightful thoughts. Eyes betrayed thoughts telling Mercedes that she was the object of their affection, as they fantasized that she must be cloaked in matching undergarment accessories found only in the likes of recent issues of Victoria Secrets. Her secret seemed safe enough while dressing in front of the full length mirror that morning; it apparently was no longer a secret in the minds of her new admirers. A curious world fantasized about what lovely feminine attire must be securely hidden beneath that lovely flowing veneer. The thought made her angel nature blush; all while a devilish smile turned up at the prospect of repeating her recent office show case performance. She would never return to mundane cotton; on the contrary, she would forever favor silk, lace and the pure sensual pleasures yielded to the owner and observer alike.
As Mercedes turned the two-seat magic carpet onto the long winding drive, the path meandered through the long lavish front yard like a placid stream flowing slowly but deliberately to its final destination; the entrance of her long awaited sanctuary. Keenly aware of the sensation of a second skin made of silk and nylon, she surrendered to the caress as she would a gentle lover. This was the first time she ventured into such decadence at work; she decided at the thought, this would not be her last. That morning she had made a spontaneous decision, after treating herself an unusually long hot bubble bath. Tom, her husband and lover of fourteen short years often encouraged his loving wife to live life fully, even a little on the wild side, that is, if it fancied her. The fragrance of her flowery scent caused a temporary lapse in judgment as she opened the secret drawer carefully arranged with naughty but elegant lingerie. These lavish garments were meant for those especially wonderful evenings when she teased her lover into submission as he pleaded for mercy before surrendering to her tender passion. The fabric had been careful crafted into sensual patterns and shapes that contained a magical substance whose power had yet to be unleashed on the world. At least until today.
The meticulously matched black lacy bra, garters and thong fit lightly against her smooth unblemished skin. The thought that she was wearing Tom’s favorite outfit, only heightened her mounting anticipation. It now served as an ever present reminder of her femininity and now her premeditated motive burst forth in a panoramic vision of passion. Her thoughts carried her away; in shear delight she observed men, and sometimes women starring eagerly at her long well toned legs or glancing down her black slightly opened, near transparent matching silk blouse. At lunch before leaving the ladies room in route back to the salt mines, she purposefully released one extra button of her flimsy blouse allowing any wayward eye to steal a fledging glimpse of her amply rounded cleavage. She delighted in the attention, though seldom returning advancing glances; knowing they longed to experience more. She was now content to bask in their adoration, and yielding no further to the demands of their eyes, and hopes of their imaginations.
Thoughts and memories from today served as a catalyst to fan the flames of delightful flowering fantasies that were even now being conjuring as a mystical potion. Considering the real possibilities of an evening filled with wanton pleasure with her loving mate and friend, she fanned the flames of love that swelled in her nurturing bosom. He would have his fill, she thought with a twinkle in her eye.
Her dream state came unexpectedly to at abrupt halt as her fantasy stopped cold in its tracks, she recognized three familiar vehicles lying in front of her nest like unwanted vagrants at a black tie event. "It can’t be" she moaned as she bites her lower lip furrowing her brow in disbelief. In the fleeting instant that followed, one of the vagrants caught her eye, only slightly peaked her curiosity as her disappoint continued its crescendo. A new additional vehicle seemed to have found its way into the lineup of usual suspects that appeared as if by magic in front of her home every forth Thursday evening of each month. They rested quietly, awaiting the return of their friendly but sometimes over energetic and boisterous owners. "Oh no!" Her voice finally broke again in grave disappointment; "its card night for the boys". How could she have forgotten? This ritual seemed to follow the pattern of the full moon, with much the same effect, unpredictable!
Traffic was a bit trying but tonight even that hadn’t dampen her resilient spirit. She fully anticipated living out her fantasy of today’s wonder. Fantasy had nearly been turned into a reality, at least as much of one as she thought she could live. She had been conjuring up an evening of epic proportions for Tom on the on the long pilgrimage back to reality. He would never know what had hit him; she had only a few moments prior being plotting. She had thought, perhaps she would have him role play one of the handsome co-workers who seemed to give her all the attention she dared accept for one day. She wanted desperately to tell him about all the glances and stares and all the flirtatious comments from Bill, John and yes even the new girl Sherri.
Sherri is the new administrative assistant in the office, to say she is well proportioned is an understatement of cosmic proportions. She possessed a natural beauty observed by women who know potential but missed by men without perception. Sherri seems to limit her appeal to the male masses by purposefully sparing portions of makeup and engineering her attire in such an unflattering way that it would take superman to see the potential, let alone her shapely frame. She is the type who should own stock in a cotton underwear company given her apparent fixation on "the blah" and comfort factor. To the unaware observer, Sherri seems an innocent young newly married woman seeking to be accepted, but not achieving the desired result. The young woman lowered herself to engaging in colorful and sometimes seeming flirtatious comments to men in the office, only to receive a penitence of acceptance. Most men really didn’t take her very seriously, which seemed to openly disappoint the young women’s starving ego. Women on the contrary knew the potential that lay wasted on the naive owner of such an underutilized asset. She really could be a striking beauty many would say to closed doors or being veiled smiles. Few could compete if she would only release her power from within.
Today, with the magic turned to full volume, Mercedes for the first time caught the young veiled beauty looking longingly at her slightly open blouse. Sherri is married; though today she seemed to have more than a passing interest in Mercedes. Surely Sherri was not attracted to her, was she? Mercedes was amused at that thought; why are women even under what seems like a magic spell. Tom would get a kick out of this revelation. Before today, she wondered about the sixty four thousand dollar question, "Why are men so fixated on woman to woman relationships, especially when stockings and garters are so prominent in the fantasy? Perhaps it is the doubling of power that holds its seductive spell" This was clearly not Mercedes’ cup of tea so to speak, but it would make for interesting conversation, perhaps more heated than usual. Mercedes is a student of her lover and knows how to exploit his desires to heighten his and her own pleasures. The loving couple often fantasizes openly about what would happen if she wore her special outfits to work, how people would respond to a seductive flash and how she would react to a come-on from some handsome guy. Fantasy had made a journey to the side of reality and may never go back again. She hoped that it would not.
Well, fantasy had become reality in a small way today and she craved the privacy of their bedroom to share it all with him; slowly, spilling every juicy detail on the table, creating and winding her own embellishments of flirtatious come-ons, invitations and "innocent" hugs, prying eyes that seemed to undress her, slowly and gently. Today, she even surprised herself by allowing her short split skirt to rise up to her stocking tops for a few moments when she sat on the high stool positioned at the drafting table. This antic did not go without notice and delight of a few of her peers. This would be etched in their dreams tonight.
Well, so much for the fun an excitement she had already lived out in her imagination during the day and in the quite moments between songs on the now lonely remaining pilgrimage into the house. "So, we will just have to wait" she sighed to herself as the garage door rose to welcome her return to the castle. Mercedes slid from behind the driver’s seat scooping a bag of groceries that had been riding comfortably the one passenger seat. Her skirt slipped up revealing lacy and wonton desire. Feeling almost betrayed by her rising passion, she regained her composure, tugged at the hem of her stylish skirt, picked up the packaged contents she had acquired at the local market on the way home. These were to have been the elements needed in preparation of a lovely candle light dinner that would not happen; at least not tonight. As she struggled with the burden, she whispered out loud, "Where is a bag boy when you need him?" It seemed that she received a great deal more service than usual as she finished her shopping at the local supermarket as two young bag boys fought over the privilege to escort her to the parking lot. She rewarded the winning young man as she took precious time leaning over adjusting her cargo just so. She was breathing heavier as hungry eyes explored the curves of her breasts down to the lacy low cut bra protecting its charge. He was in shock, she was in heaven; she senses the strong direct control she now had, for an instant, she shared her passion and delight with the young suitor. She now tucked the makings of what would have been a romantic dinner close to her side with her left arm, picking up her art case, fumbled with the door and with both grace and balance making her entrance known.
As the door knob turned, so did the heads of every man around the heavily populated game table. The sounds of oldie rock music filled the room, creating a festive setting for all to enjoy. It was obvious from the half devoured potato chip bag and fully consumed pitcher of beer that the occupants of the dormant vehicles started playing their game of skill and chance earlier than usual. Plastic poker clips of red, white and blue were stacked neatly in front of each challenger as they guarded their horde of treasure until the next hand would either diminish or replenish its contents. The men were all dressed in summer card game casual attire of tee shirts and shorts. The stakes were usually five or ten dollar limit depending on the mood and well being of each household represented. Tonight the stakes were higher that anyone would ever know. The sound of rushing water coming from the direction of bathroom announced that Tom would soon emerge since his presence was not accounted for among the regular den of gamblers and owners of vagrant vehicles.
It was obvious that no one was concentrating on the cards clutched tightly and upright in their now sweaty hands. Mercedes gracefully sashayed from the entrance and approached the table where Tom’s regulars and a handsome young stranger were congregated. This must be the owner of the unaccounted for vintage vehicle perched like a vulture in a tree filled with dove. Each man present stared open mouthed and hypnotically nodded a greeting to their host’s arriving wife as she set the unwieldy burden on the bar directly in front of the now enchanted men. All was a little too quite for her immediate comfort. Their attention was intensely focused in the direction of a heaving bust line. Quickly glancing in the direction of their unexpected attention, Mercedes only then noticed her blouse had taken a mind of its own and had somehow became further unleashed by the package cradled protectively at her side. Her intentional action after lunch had now produced an unexpected benefit for the mesmerized men caught in her unintentionally constructed web of lace, silk and black straps. She was their capturer and they her prisoners, she was now experiencing more than she had originally purposed with an audience who would not soon forget this instant in time. By accident or unconscious intent, she was now fully revealing her round luscious right breast that was trying desperately to escape the lacy nearly see through super low cut push-up bra. She felt their eyes roam over and caress her exposed flesh; her nipple was now pressing against the elastic material and nearly earned its freedom and exposure to hungry eyes and dry mouths. In an instant, Mercedes boiled with both uncontrolled excitement and embarrassment; her cheeks blushed crimson, her body burned with a mounting pressure that made her knees slightly buckle. In an unappreciated reflex that she wished she could have controlled longer, her hand flew to the rescue of the wayward treasure of delight. She quickly turned around, secured her blouse; much to the disappointment of everyone in the room, including Mercedes and the handsome young stranger, who only smiled a sheepish shy smile in her direction, then cast his eyes down as if a scolded school boy seeing something forbidden. Her eyes were captured by the depth and honesty of his slate blue eyes; she was intrigued by his strong chiseled face. In an instant, her embarrassment was transformed to attraction; breathlessly; she was deeply aroused by this brief unexpected moment in time that would soon become her secret fantasy. Mercedes loved her husband but somehow this new power gave her new freedom to captivate and control those around her, especially this handsome young stranger. She would never betray the love of her life, but she is a woman with deep passions and desires and loved the attention brought by her new power. She enjoyed the control and dominance that her presence commanded. She was forever transformed into a new woman.
No sooner had Mercedes started to recover from her bitter sweet experience than Tom, emerged as predicted to bring order from chaos. He was delighted to witness the presence of his sweet wife, home from a hard day at work. His job was more flexible then hers since he owned a business employing technicians such as those gathering their senses from a recent revelation not shared by their boss. He knew Mercedes well and immediately sensed something was not quite normal. However, today he was stunned even more by her beauty than normal; something was unusual, not quite in place, his desire for his beautiful wife seemed more intense today for some reason; her countenance was sexy, confident, innocent and devilish all at the same time. He froze as if shot with liquid nitrogen; as Mercedes turned and begun unloading the contents of her trouble making bundle, he traced her body line down, like every other man in the room. His eyes pleasant journey stopped as his heart skipped a beat; he witnessed seemed black slinky stockings usually reserved for private moments, clinging tightly to his lover’s legs. As Mercedes head turned half around sensing each man undress her with their eyes, Mercedes locked on to Tom’s as if to say "Yes my darling, your fantasy is reality, I am adorned in delight for you tonight." His mind froze at the prospect as he was torn between kicking out his buddies and winning back his diminished pile of chips and equally diminished pride. He was clearly not the winner tonight, at least not right now.
Tom’s buddies were acting more like little boys whose hand was caught in the cookie jar, than his long time amigos or employees. These same guys only a few minutes earlier were joking and conducting themselves like adolescent teenagers on a rampage rather than the full grown men they physically appeared to be. "So what gives" was his best shot at uncovering the truth cloaked in crimson faces. To their delight and relief, Mercedes came to their rescue. "Boys will be boys Tom and men are just little naughty curious boys". Tom really did not get her meaning nor did he seem that interested in uncovering more of the matter just now. His mind raced to prospects of monetary gain in the night; after all there were cards still to deal and money to win back. Today was not his lucky day, he thought to himself. Little did he know that his luck would soon be turning for the better! He had actually lost most of his loot and was eager to retrieve his money from the hands of these turkeys he claimed as both employees and friends. He especially wanted to capture the tall pile of winnings that filled his newest part-time employee’s stronghold.
Everyone’s attention was reluctantly diverted back to the cards, beer and poker chips; their shocking reward for merely being alert and in the right place at the right time was becoming a faint fantasy in the night; everyone’s attention was redirected from their boss’ wife’s revealed beauty, that is except for the attention of the young stranger. His eyes continued to linger on Mercedes’ firm figure, eyes that seemed to slowly undress and caress her, strangely enough, not in a lewd or disrespectful way but clearly with the unlikely hope of another glimpse of Mercedes’ beauty in lace. A simple slight smile from Mercedes’ full luscious lips and sparkle of lingering eye contact sparked a passionately deep hope within his very being. His mind no longer on the game in front of him, was diverted to the game being played out beyond the table. Mercedes ignited his passion further as she joined in and began to win at his game. "How could I be so bold with my new bosses’ wife?" He scolded himself in thought. After all Dan and his wife were new to the community, having moved to the resort town temporarily to so he could complete his first novel and to work part time as a ski instructor and part time in Tom’s technology company. His wife, a secretary for a web development and internet service provider company in the area, seemed to have a hard time making friends. Now here he was flirting with a woman ten years his senior though she looked to be his own wife’s age. She was certainly more famine, confident and sexy than his wife. Somehow, she was powerful, in control, and in a strange but wonderful inexplicit way held his imagination in high gear. He felt dizzy, as he listened to the sound of his own heart pounding. If only his twenty-five year old wife looked this good, he pondered over the next hand of cards. She is really wonderful, cute, in a boyish kind of way. If only she was brave enough, or sexy enough to dress in such a stimulating manner. The young man’s imagination drifted to the events earlier as he played and replayed the experience over and over in his impressionable mind. Yes that would be an unforgettable event; to see his own wife partially exposed and remain confident enough to control the situation that would be an experience to savor for his life. Surely she would do that if she only understood the power it held over him and the men around him. He would have to somehow tell her, encourage her. But his dilemma was to discover how? She was very straight laced woman; she actually wore very conservative underwear even on their wedding day. The night that followed was no better, she took forever to get her into bed. That experience was not exactly exciting for her. She seemed to bare it but not enjoy the experience. Her idea of sexy was an up the neck gown with the lights out. No, he corrected himself; lace was not in the picture. She was too shy to even change in front of him. He was clearly her first and only lover, for that he was grateful. But he longed for a more passionate relationship. They had to make love in with the lights out and in silence. Was it him, was he so grotesque to her that she did not find him attractive. But here is a wonderfully sexy woman who had captured his imagination, his passion, his desire to experience and see more. Perhaps he could find the courage or perhaps have someone help her to discover this power. But who? Mercedes image burned forever in his memory, much the way any incredible event or image becomes an integral part of your soul. It was much like the first date, the first love of your life, or the first time you are brave enough to kiss your date and you receive a kiss in return. It was what he longed for his own bride. He felt both guilt and excitement both intensely and both at the same moment.
After a few hands, some bad jokes and a quick sandwich, Mercedes opened a fresh bottle of Riesling wine and retired into the living room to catch up on a little reading. Her mind was not on the book but on the experiences leading up to the trill of having Tom’s friends catch her in the compromising pose. As she lingered on the thought, she pondered the events recently laid behind her. Wasn’t she supposed to feel guilty for enjoying the events? She concluded that they were harmless accidents, or were they? She confessed to herself that she had enjoyed them fully, wonderfully and wanted them to happen again and again. Her thoughts sorted out the events of fellow co-workers, the bag boys, and familiar strangers at lunch, her husband’s buddies and yes now her young admirer entwined in her web of lace, silk and black nylon stockings. It had all been a rush of pleasure and power; she wanted more. Her senses were aroused and she knew the young challenger wanted to play a new game.
Perhaps it was best to reveal her treasures to complete strangers, like Tom encouraged in their fantasies when they made love. So, she concluded, she is not alone, he also enjoys that fantasy. How would he react when she told him of her office escapades, the bag boy and now the "accident" with his friends? She would have to tell him, wouldn’t she? Yes, of course. They had no secrets between them. After the second glass of wine, she knew that she would have to tell him about Dan and her response to him and his apparent response to her. Would he be jealous and angry or would it be a thrill for him to think that this young man was attracted to this loving wife.
As the night progressed, two of Tom’s friends were cleaned out by the young bandit as he swept their holdings to his side of the table further building his war chest. Two of Tom’s oldest friends and remaining amigos tried to repartition the chips more evenly, both failed at their hard fought struggle. Tom had regained some of his losses but not enough to come back to even. Finally, Bill, Tom’s long time fishing buddy had his clock cleaned by the young stranger in one daring hand as he tried and failed in a bluff that even a blind dog could see through. He departed for home with his tail between his legs leaving the stranger with his extra cash and Tom with a growing intent to continue and prevail in their struggle to capture the now massive stack of chips accounting now to a little over five thousand dollars between them. Tom was impressed by the skill and cunning of his young challenger. Tom was usually the "big dog" at the table but tonight he had finally met a worthy opponent. Bent to leather on winning more than a fair share of the chips lying docile on the table, he was also aware that time was not his friend. His mind had not been on the game all night. He like the stranger was considering the slender goddess in black as she came into the game room to watch the final payoff between the two titans.
As Mercedes poured the final contents from the bottle into her wine glass, it did not go unnoticed by Tom. This was out of character for the usually conservative lady of the house, who seldom drank more than one glass at dinner. The wine had its desired effect, as Mercedes leaned against bar immediately behind Tom so she could read his cards in an attempt to help her judge the potential outcome and reward of the next hand. This placed her strategically in line of sight with the stranger and where Tom, unless he turned fully around, could not see his lovely wife. He sensed her presence none the less. Her thoughts drifted to the events earlier in the evening. She was hooked on the feeling of sensual power. She also had concocted a mischievous plan to help her husband in his desperate struggle with the young stranger, she would help him over his challenger and capture his treasure; the one on the table and the one perched on the bar stool immediately behind him. As Tom dealt the cards, his attention was intensely focused on the table, the stranger and the action taking place in front of him. Dan’s attention was distracted to the game immediately in front of him, beyond the card table, and behind his host.
Mercedes "innocently" leaned forward as is if to see her husband’s card hand. As she did so, she intentionally caught Dan’s eyes as he explored the richness of her firm breasts, partially exposed, visible through the fine translucent fabric; the tops of her firm breasts now peeking out of her flowing black low buttoned blouse. His heart nearly stopped as Mercedes lifted his eyes with her own as her right hand, moved under a power of its own. Her long red painted finger tips playfully released another button expanding the view of an already dangerously low position. This strategic move gave both of her lace covered breasts opportunity to slowly dance into full view of the half open, dry mouthed stranger. Though still partially covered by her favorite low cut push up lacy bra, the act served the immediate purpose of distracting the concentration of the young man well enough for Tom to take the hand with little resistance; much to Mercedes’, Dan’s and Tom’s delight. All were pleased with the outcome but for far different but equally satisfying motives. Mercedes returned to the refrigerator and opened a second bottle of wine. The stakes were now rising. Dan thoroughly enjoying the exchange dealt the cards with a new zeal. This time, he won a small pot in a quick exchange of wills. Mercedes punished his victory mercilessly by buttoning one button of her flimsy nearly transparent blouse and winked at the disappointed young man wagging her sensual finger at him then running it along her lip line. She ran her tongue over her glistening red lips covered with gloss applied in an ample amount to stimulate the senses for the next exchange. Tom not wanting to be outdone by this young buck so he dealt the next hand with deep intensity, as Mercedes leaned over, unbuttoned her black silk blouse slowly once again to reveal the treasures within as her eye captured the young man’s intensity. She ran her painted nails over the intersection between lace and smooth skin, tracing the curve of her breast with her long painted finger nail. She then lifted her finger to her matching red lips to wet her finger. The intended effect was immediate. This time, the young novelist lost, and he lost big time. Mercedes feeling especially generous delighted the growing fan by running her wet finger once again across her red lips and began treating her hidden hardened nipple to a sensual message beneath her thin lacy bra. She looked Dan straight in his bewildered eyes and in one smooth motion, slipped the cup of her bra down her ample breast stopping just short of revealing her wet, hard nipple. Dan’s eye followed the sensual curve of her breast to the point where reality turned to imagination as he completed in his mind the motion that Mercedes had abruptly stopped. Like magic, he could see her lovely full sensitive nurturing curves beneath the now punishing lace that separated his reality from her full delight. She could see in his eyes that his imagination had finished what she had started and his mind’s eye was not far from reality. It was absolute delight for both.
She had never done anything like this and he had never witnessed anything like this before. Was it the wine, the day dressed in such a sexy sensual way, or some new power that wielded up within her heart? Dan almost lost control of his faculties, as another hand fell victim to Tom’s skill and Mercedes’ much appreciated attention. His loss was his reward. Mercedes moved like a sleek cat around the bar, with the unveiling action behind still undetected by the new winner. As the cards were being divided for another round, she established herself on the bar stool behind Tom once again. This gave Dan a clear shot of her long silky legs. As Dan’s treasure diminished on the table, his reward was being reaped in clear view, in front of him as Mercedes raised her skirt to reveal the tops of her stockings, up to her garters, with the great reward including the fully exposure of her lacy thong. Turning she provided a view of her lovely hips and bottom. She fully rose up to give him a picture perfect view. Mercedes and her prey were both captivated and entangled by the events unfolding before them. With this new danger for both of them, doing something so dangerous and intriguing, their passion rollup together as one. If they survived, neither would be the same after tonight. Tom was winning and he was delighted, he did not want the magic to stop. Nor did they.
Then like mystical orchestration to a dance of sensual pleasure, the song "Queen of Hearts" entered her new realm again for the second time tonight, as if on queue Mercedes finger traced under the top and leg bands of her black thong with her right wet finger. She shook her long hair down until it covered the tips of her breasts, much to Dan’s disappointment. But his patience was rewarded as Mercedes released her front bra clasp, allowing it to fall free to fully expose the bottom of her other jealous breasts, both passionate treasures struggling with no success to allow open access for her captive’s viewing pleasure. She kept the final destination of exploration for herself. She messaged her hard nipple under the cover of her golden long locks as the young man continued to bet heavily, betting most that he had, hoping against all odds to get a glimpse of one of her lovely nipples. Mercedes passion built as her free hand disappeared into the semi-transparent silk lace thong as her hand and breathing keep time with her new theme song flowing freely from the radio. Her head back; most of her breasts and all of her black stocking clad legs exposed in front of the young man’s pleading eyes. It was beyond intoxicating, it was the place where fantasy becomes reality, where dreams are never forgotten, all apparently to her disappointment, beyond the immediate knowledge of her loving husband who was playing out his hand like a starving shark attaching its unknowing prey. As the music struck its final notes, Mercedes quickly gathered herself together, not wanting the moment to be spoiled by a shocked response. She took one last risk by quickly turning around removing her bra completely, buttoning her silk blouse to the position that started this unexpected evening. Pointed nipples pressed through the thin divine material, leaving the young man with a complete picture of sexual elegance.
As Tom racked in the last pot from the middle of the table, he took the last of the stranger’s fortune, he smiled, shock hands with the younger man across the battlefield that had now reverted back to a game table; both men smiled at one another, as both men had Mercedes on his mind. Dan thought to himself, Tom sorely neglected his sweet wife all night; he must have thought she was bored stiff. In reality, Tom was really looking forward to sharing a warm bed with his lover as soon as he could get the young man on his way. The phone in the back room rang as the young man got up to leave empty handed, but not empty hearted. Much to his excitement and delight as Dan walked toward the door, Tom asked Mercedes of she would be so kind as to show the young man to the door while he answered the phone in the back. "After all, it’s only polite to show our guest out properly," Mercedes reasoned out loud.
Mercedes seemed to have a supernatural power; she sensed that Dan would be the perfect gentleman. This new and growing power grew strong and her senses were perplexing, but perhaps it had been granted her somehow. She almost seemed to assume a royal command. Her sense was right, Dan thanked Mercedes for the wonderful evening, extending his hand as a gentlemen. In fact, he was so intoxicated from the experience that he began to believe what had happened was a dream, a fantasy of some type. He told her that although he was leaving empty handed, he was now really leaving with a new appreciation for her power, he was a now a devoted subject of Mercedes, as he proclaimed her "Queen of Stockings".
Mercedes leaned close to the young man, he felt as if she almost melted into him. He could sense her sweet breath on his cheek, the sharp firm tips of her nipples pressed through her black silk blouse and his thin cotton tee shirt. Her stocking clad right leg slipped slightly between his legs. His senses exploded with the feel of her nylon stockings on his bare legs. She felt his response, and enjoyed the sensation of his leg pressing against her leg, then garter and thong. She took control and kissed him feather lightly on the cheek leaving a perfect impression of her luscious lips. His mind imagined how it would be if she would only kiss him on the lips and allow her sharp tongue to part his lips seeking a deeper joy. He would never experience this delight. She slowly pulled away looking intently in the young man’s longing eyes that cried desperately for more, but knowing that she could never be his prize. Surprising Dan and herself, from a deep power from within, she guided his trembling hand as it made its long journey inside of her half opened blouse, coming to rest against her warm beating heart at the top of her curved breast. He was powerless and almost fainted from her presence as he felt the warmth of her gentle but strong spirit. She surprised herself again and her devoted follower by lifting her black split skirt taking his free hand guiding it over the long silky road to the top of her stocking where the journey ended at the refreshing oasis where the stocking and garter become one. She boldly slipped his now trembling hand under the black lacy garter strap and held it there as she again leaned into him and seductively whispered to him, you are my captive, my new royal subject "Secret Subject of the Queen of Stockings". She then kissed him lightly on the cheek, leaving a second red imprint on the opposite side of where her lips had once been. She lowered both of his hands and whispered that she would be his fantasy but that he must now go home and make passionate and gentle love to his wife. The young man slighted turned as if to leave, and then returning to face his unusual hostess, in a boyishly shy way. "Would you and Tom consider coming over to my house for dinner tomorrow night. I would deeply appreciate it if you could meet my wife. We are new in town and she really needs a friend." Mercedes smiled at him extended her hand to shake his establishing a new and permanent boundary. Dan immediately received the unspoken message. "We would be delighted to accept your invitation" Mercedes purred "what is the dress attire?" "What about I leave that to your capable hands Dan responded departing a happy and somehow magically fully satisfied man. Clearly Mercedes was now in possession of an unusual super power that must be used wisely.
Mercedes had her own reward to give to the victor of treasures. He was about to cash in on the best hand he held all night. Tom would never believe that not just one but two of his favorite fantasies had become reality tonight. Mercedes strolled through the game room, walked over to the bar stool where her wildest fantasy was played out. She froze in her tracks. As her hand tightly gripped the arm on the bar stool. There it was, on the wall behind where the young man sat; she was stunned to see a perfect reflection of her own image in the mirror across the room. How could she have not seen it before? Tom would have had to be blind not to see the whole show, right before his very eyes. As she stood and pondered this new startling revelation, her growing fears were soon forgotten; she felt the familiar warm embrace of the true love of her life as he embraced her from the back, kissing the back of her neck. His hand explored familiar but still newly exciting territory as he reach around her waist, found the top button on her blouse and released it to allow him easier access to his treasure. He gently slipped his hand over her heart, cupping her willing left breast in his hand. Her nipple surrendered to his gentle touch. "We have an invitation for dinner tomorrow night" Mercedes hoarsely whispered to her life partner and soul mate. "So you know". "I know" was his quite but excited response. "What shall we wear?" Mercedes considered as she contemplated to herself in a dream like state. He reached around sporting her lacy bra in his hand, a wicked smile appearing on his face, his cell phone in the other. He did know how to speed dial. She slowly lifted her skirt it to expose the tops of her stockings while pressing harder against him and to her relief and delight felt his growing excitement against her firm uncovered buttocks. He was captivated by a growing intense passion devouring her clear image in the mirror strategically positioned across the room. Fantasies of his own playing like a wonderfully familiar movie in his mind, but this time it was recounting an experience not a dream. She took his hand in hers guiding it along the familiar silk road with the journey ending at the oasis were her stocking met the smooth flesh of her leg at the clasp of her garter. She slipped his hand under the black lacy garter strap and held it there with her own covering it. He whispered in her ear how he won a treasure tonight and how he had become "Captain of the guard for the Queen of Stockings". She giggled, smiled faintly to herself and eagerly yielded to his advance.
As the morning sky exploded in brilliant colors, Mercedes traveled back in time to the evening’s events. The wonderful selection of intimate pink lingerie that her captain had laid out during her morning shower met her highness’ willing approval. How thoughtful she concluded as she contemplated a lovely evening getting to know new friends.
Mercedes floated on air, lost in thought, half present in the future and half in the thoughts of the night’s events. She strolled past the new office administer who was obvious locked in a more than casual conversation, with one of their co-workers Ann. With grate disappointment Sherri mourned, "I can’t believe he forgot our anniversary!" was all Mercedes caught as she strolled by. Ann further invaded Mercedes thought as she echoed a tone of encouragement, trying to lift the spirits of her young friend. "Well at his Dan’s new friends are coming to dinner tonight, that sounds fun" Sherri’s face seemed to reflect a ray of hope but countered with her on volley, "He invited them without asking me first, just like a man, forgetting our most important day together. I don’t understand why he’s so insensitive, it’s like he doesn’t even see me." Ann dragged Mercedes from the fringe of conversation into the middle. Mercedes, what would you suggest Sherri do?" Sherri chimed in with more hope. "What should I wear?" "Dan really likes his new friend and his friend’s wife made a positive impression on him, he said I could learn a lot from her." The overhead page boomed Ann’s name sending her dashing to her office to catch the phone, leaving Sherri and Mercedes locked in conversation. Customers seemed to have such poor timing she thought.
Sherri’s eyes turned to Mercedes, this time with a little more sparkle as she returned her new friend’s smile. Then she confessed her fears in trust as if to a life long friend. "Last night, Dan came home with red lipstick on both of creeks. I confronted him and he gave me a lame excuse that his hostess kissed his cheeks as he departed. But he was so affectionate last night, he couldn’t have been messing around, at least I hope not. Mercedes what do you think? Can you help me with what to prepare tonight, I want this to be a special night?"
Mercedes’ head was spinning with anticipation. Was she ready for a student? Perhaps her new power would help; she couldn’t wait to discover where this new adventure would lead.

We meet at bar in Chicago. It was cold and wintry night, but she was wearing a short skirt and nylon stockings. That is what caught my eye. Her name was Carol. I bought her a drink, and told her how refreshing it is to see a woman who knows what vintage glamour is. She smiled and said are you a leg man? By far legs are the best part of the female anatomy was my reply. She was wearing spiked high heel pumps that really made her legs look good. After a while she invited up to her place on north Michigan avenue for a night cap. When we arrived she pointed to the bar and said make me a vodka martini. She said she had been in those nylons all day and had to freshen up. As I made her drink I could hear the shower running. It took some time before she came out. But I could hear the slapping of her shoe's on the floor and the bottom of her feet. She was wearing spiked high heel mules and RH&T off black stockings and a black slip. We sat down on the couch, then she removed one mule. This may be shocking to non leg men. But she put the sole of her foot, in stockings, in my face and said make love to me. I have never been so aroused in my life. We are married with children now, but still her feet in rh&t stockings....George
INFATUATION Part 3 by Tony
The year passed very quickly and we were into December. Jane’s outfits were more severe in the winter but were invariably complemented by knee length skirts that, on occasions, offered me, and her work colleagues, the odd sighting of a dark welt of stocking top.
Some of my horny male colleagues had taken notice of Jane’s liking of stockings and would follow her up stairs and take opportunities to sit opposite her at meetings. Jane was unaware of her fan club and would cross her legs to give us a glimpse of white skin above her stocking tops when we had our team meetings. I think that, when she took notes and minutes, she would wear her contact lenses and could not focus on the direction of our stares opposite her. Simon, our manager, would make a point of ensuring he had a vantage point view. However, these sightings were rare and would depend on the length of skirt.
The Christmas party was the event we all looked forward to, as it was our chance to let our hair down and neck with the girls we had fancied through the year. The party was open to partners and I had hoped Jane would not be able to bring Alan, although I had looked forward to meeting him as we had one thing in common: we both fancied Jane and we had both seen her in her under things.
The day of the party Jane confirmed that Alan would be coming but may be a little late. She had brought her outfit with her in a large dress bag and would not let on what it was like in spite of my pleading.
At lunch that day we all went to the local for a drink and Jane was in good spirits and chatting to her boss, Simon, and another senior manager, Richard.
Richard was getting a little friendly and kept putting his hand on Jane’s knee. Every time he did this she would remove it and smile. Then I noticed that her skirt has risen somewhat and her brown stockings were on view up to the first dark welt. Simon too had noticed and I saw him put his fingers onto her skirt and try to lift it. He managed to raise the skirt so that the black fabric of the suspenders was just visible above the whole band of the dark brown tops. Jane slapped his hand and he apologized but the atmosphere was becoming very sexy. As we walked back Jane was sandwiched between Simon and Richard and her arms were linked in theirs. I was insanely jealous and sulked all afternoon.
Jane spent much of the afternoon around the office making sure everyone had sorted their tasks for the year and that Simon had received the completed files. She was still a little tipsy from our lunch drinks and tended to be a little careless over her sitting position when she finally returned to her desk. She was wearing a light beige linen suit under which her suspender clips were clearly visible. The skirt tended to ride up as she sat as it had in the pub, and, as she sat down the hem was, again, showing the first dark welt. She looked over at me and exhaled to demonstrate her seeming exhaustion and then slid down in the seat. This movement caused her skirt to slide up her dark brown stocking tops to the suspender tabs.
I looked across taking in the scene; the suspenders were pulling her nylons and I could clearly make out the tension across the tops of the stockings. My groin started to harden. "Take care," I called softly, "that skirt has a mind of its own."
"Oh, goodness, thank you." She replied as she straightened herself. "You know, Richard would have given his eye teeth to have seen that. Did you know what he did at the pub? He tried to lift my skirt."
"I believe he succeeded. I certainly saw a good deal."
Jane rose and walked over to my desk and perched on the edge facing me. Her waist was in my direct line of vision and she was no more than two feet away. Her skirt was tight across her thighs and I could see, not only the suspender straps and buttons quite clearly but also the line of the stocking tops.
"How much did you see?"
"Up to here." I pointed to her suspender buttons and, making sure no one was looking, flicked one with my finger.
"Do you think anyone else saw?" Jane asked, ignoring my touch.
"Would you have liked them to?" I traced my finger up the suspender tab and Jane took my hand away.
"Naughty boy. No, of course not, apart from you, of course."
That made me feel better. "Ready for this evening, are you?"
"It’ll take me some time as I have to change everything."
"Will I like the outfit?" I was fishing for information.
"Alan does and you have similar tastes I think." With that she left me and went back to her desk. She sat carefully, this time and, turning her back to me started to make some calls.
The party was due to start at seven thirty and everyone drifted off before to change or assist in getting everything ready.
Our company occupied two whole floors of the office block and we had secure access to both floors preventing any strangers from gate crashing. The party was to be held on the floor below ours, mainly in the boardroom where we had a band. All the other meeting rooms were set out for food and small groups to chat.
I had gone home to change and returned closer to eight. I arrived at the office at the same time as a tall slightly graying man with very striking looks. He wore a dark suit that looked very expensive. He turned and asked where the SPA party was and I suggested he followed me.
As we left the lift we turned to the boardroom and I could see Jane holding conversation with Simon and Richard: neither had brought their wives. She looked stunning in a black velvet dress that was scooped at the neck and stopped an inch above her knees. She wore black nylons and black high heels.
As I appeared she broke away and hurried over. "So you’ve met then?"
I looked at the other chap and he had as surprised a look on his face as I think I had. "Humm. Pardon?" I muttered.
"Oh Alan, you should have introduced yourself. This is David. I’ve told you so much about him." Still he looked nonplussed. "I work with David. He is the one who helps me with the computer." That was the first I new of this but was happy that I had been mentioned in dispatches.
We shook hands. Alan then followed Jane as she walked over to Simon and Richard for introductions.
I looked down at Jane’s legs and realized that her outfit was completed by black fully-fashioned nylons, those with a seam and Cuban heels. She looked unbelievably sexy.
We met up again a short time later when we were filling our glasses. None of us was drinking much as we all had cars to drive home. Jane and Alan had arrived separately and I understood that, rather than leave Jane’s car in the car park for the weekend they would go back home the same way.
Jane moved over to the far wall and we followed.
"So what do you do in your spare time?" asked Alan.
"I enjoy photography," I replied noticing Jane suddenly widening her gaze. I told Alan about my hobby and that I belonged to a local group that got together monthly to photograph scenic views and sometimes studio models. Alan smiled, "You should take some photos of Jane. I think she’d make a great model. Look at her in this dress. She looks fantastic."
I had to agree with him and wished I could take him up on the offer. Jane was blushing and asking us to change the subject.
"Why don’t we invite David over for dinner sometime Jane and he could bring his camera? Perhaps he could teach me some tricks. I’d love to become more competent. Actually Jane you’d have to be careful in that dress. You know David, when she sits it tends to rise up to her thighs. I find it most distracting."
Jane turned to face Alan. "We are definitely changing the subject. We can have a dance now the band’s started."
With that she grabbed Alan’s hand and left the room. As she turned the corner she looked over her shoulder and looked over to me. I detected a sly smile.
I followed some fifteen minutes later and stood with Simon and Richard. They couldn’t take their eyes off Jane’s body as it glided round the floor. Her black seams were great to watch as her legs passed by. Her skirt lifted slightly in the movements but not high enough to catch a glimpse of welt. That was until a closer number when I could see Alan’s hand drift over Jane’s buttocks and lift her skirt some three or so inches.
Fully-fashioned stockings are very different from other styles. There is a distinct pattern of horizontal lines before the very dark welt and, as Jane’s skirt rose I could make out this distinct shading on both legs. Jane broke away and her skirt resumed its place. I could see Alan laughing and Jane scolding him but with a wide grin.
They stopped dancing and walked back to where we were standing. Richard immediately walked over and took Jane in his arms for the next dance. It was then Simon’s turn and back to Richard. Jane did not stop for a breather.
As they danced slow numbers I could see that both bosses were trying to get their hands around and below Jane’s waist, their fingers touching her thighs where it was obvious her suspenders would be. Alan didn’t seem to object and whilst we watched the antics of Simon and Richard engaged me in the subject of photography again. He was most interested in the types of lenses I would use for indoor shots and asked me about the models. I told him that we used our club members as models and that we always kept our clothes on. He laughed and repeated that I should come over sometime.
Meanwhile Richard had been to get drinks and Jane went to sit with hers. Alan and I turned, "Do you see what I mean about the dress?" he asked nodding at Jane.
Jane was sitting with her legs crossed and had turned to Simon, seated next to her. Her skirt had pulled back to show the tops of her black nylons and a hint of white thigh. "That’s one reason I married her. Fantastic thighs and a liking for nylon stockings. You know that we first met when she was going out with a mate and she and my girlfriend, at that time, traveled by train to Gatwick. She sat opposite me and for the duration of the journey I was treated to a clear, unobstructed view of her tan nylon stockings with a white suspender clip and wonderful thighs. I studied the suspender and the taughtness of the dark tops for almost an hour and the vision has remained in my mind for decades. I still love that view, what about you, David?"
I couldn’t speak. The sight of Jane’s stocking tops and Alan’s frankness had taken me aback and I was stuck for words. "Yes, very nice." I managed to mutter.
Alan laughed, "Why don’t you try your hand at dancing with Jane, she’s a good mover and it will get her away from that lecherous old codger.
I did as suggested and Jane joined me on the floor.
I held her hands and we shuffled into a space. "How are you getting on with Alan? I notice you were deep in conversation. He can be a little shy."
"He’s not at all shy. He most certainly still fancies you and makes loads of comments about your stockings."
"Yes, he likes me in nylons. By the way," she pulled me closer for a slow number, "what do think of my outfit?" As my arms wet around her waist I was aware of a foundation garment. Her dress was lined and was silky over what I assumed to be a corset.
"That’s nice feel. You’ve got something nice on underneath."
"Yes, that’s what Simon and Richard have noticed. I’m wearing my black basque. Have you noticed my stockings?"
God, had I? "They’re very sexy. I noticed that Alan was trying to lift your skirt."
"He does that so he can draw attention to my stocking tops and it makes me angry. Well fairly angry." She smiled.
As we continued I was increasingly aware of ensuring my hands didn’t creep down to her suspenders, it was as if a magnet was drawing them down. I was also aware that her neckline was quite low and, on occasions, as she moved I would get a pleasant view of her bust and the sight of the black lace covering her nipples. I was getting hard.
"I can feel your erection young man. I think we’d best move apart and sit down."
"Can we wait until it subsides? I think it may notice."
"Okay, but I think you may have to sort that out without me. I’m sorted for the evening." She smiled again and, after a while we managed to return to the sets and her husband. As we did Alan’s mobile rang and he excused himself to take the call. Richard came over to talk with Jane and I could see that his eyes and hands were itching to see and touch more of Jane. She was obviously somewhat uncomfortable in his company but this did not deter our Richard.
As he went to take her hand for another smooch, Alan returned. "I’m so sorry, I have to leave. Someone’s tried to break into my office and I need to double check the locks and alarms." Jane looked peeved. "Look it’s ten now. By the time I’m done it’ll be gone eleven and I’ll make my way home. You stay as long as you wish and drive safely. David!" I looked up. "You just make sure that these old lechers don’t get their wicked way with my wife. It looks as though you’ve a tough job on your hands." We all laughed, Simon and Richard too.
Following Alan’s departure Richard and Simon attempted to monopolize Jane but she managed to join other groups and they finally gave up.
After a half hour with the party in full swing I had boogied with a few of the office girlies and was in a great mood. Jane appeared at my side and said that she would have a few more dances and then make a move.
The next few numbers were real smooches and we got really close. Here I was again, my hands drifting down and around as if I were acquainting myself with the terrain under Jane’s dress.
"You’ll know every square inch soon."
" I wish I did," I murmured in her ear.
"Remember, you’ve seen quite a lot of me."
"Not in this outfit, I haven’t." I said as my left hand swept over her buttock and onto her suspender. I could feel where the basque finished and where her flimsy knickers ended.
"You’re making me a little excited, young man. In fact, what with Richard’s hands at lunchtime and all you boys this evening I’ve had a most exciting day."
"Why don’t you pop back to my place tonight. Alan won’t know will he?" this was my chance and I was getting really bold.
"I can’t come back to your place. Not tonight, and there’s nowhere in the office."
As she spoke I realized that, as I had become the key holder of the stock room, I was able to go onto the floor above and without being seen enter the stock room with my key. No one would see us and no one would know.
"What if I was able to use a room and no one find out?" I suggested softly.
"How?" she looked at me and we stopped moving.
I told her about the key and we hatched a plan that involved getting our coats and going separately onto the next floor. The room was around a corner from the main lobby and no one went that way.
I arrived first and opened the door and turned on the light. It was a large room stacked with racks and shelves. There was a table and a few chairs at one end and I perched on the edge as Jane pushed open the door and entered the room glancing behind her as she closed the door.
"I suggest that you lock it Jane." She turned the key and walked towards me.
"Why lock it? Am I about to be ravished?"
"Give me half a chance and I shall." I reached out and took her in my arms.
"No, look but don’t touch, remember?" She perched on the table and slid back so that her legs were straight ahead and flat on the table. Very slowly she raised her left leg until her shoe was flat on the table and her skirt had slid up her thighs.
Her legs were now fully visible: her right leg flat on the table and the other raised. I could see everything all the way to her black nylon knickers, past the taught stocking tops, her black rouched suspender tab and strap. Her legs widened slightly and I could make out the dark shadow between her legs under the transparent black nylon. I could also see that her knickers were damp.
"How’s that for starters?" She leant back on her elbows and closed her eyes.
I stood transfixed taking in one of the most erotic sights of my life. Here was the woman of my dreams having spent the day being touched, leered at and propositioned by managers and husband alike with her legs open in font of me dressed in the most suggestive and erotic underwear ever.
I put my hand on her left ankle and moved it over the silky nylons up to the black welts and on to the suspender clip. My hand then passed onto the bare skin and up to her now very damp knickers. I her moan with a deep pleasure. As my fingers passed over the front of her mound she shuddered. "David, I need to take this dress off before it gets dirty. She slid to the floor and turned her back to me. I started to undo her zip that went all the way to her waist. As the zip slid down the dress fell forward and I looked over her shoulders onto the black lace cups of the basque. The lace barely covered her nipples, which were puckered and as tight as possible. They protruded and stretched the black lace exposing her breasts: like alabaster against the black fabric. I peeled the dress away and Jane stepped out. I put the dress over a chair. With her back to me I, again, took in her immodesty. The basque had a black lace top with a transparent body that scooped to accommodate her rouched suspenders. Her black pants were totally transparent and could clearly see her bum cheeks. The suspenders gripped the black nylon tops where there was a keyhole above the seam. The stockings were high on her thighs and, as she turned, I could hear that familiar rasp of nylon.
Jane got back on the table and I laid her back. I parted her legs and, with both hands, passed them over her ankles, up her shins, onto her thighs, hesitating as I fondled the tops of the stockings and, with my fingers, traced them up her suspenders onto her pants.
The light was better now and I could clearly make out her cunny lips and the light hairs above. Jane was obviously in to shaving. I touched her lips and, once again, she shuddered.
As my finger started to move over her knickers I heard voices outside the room. I couldn’t quite make out who it was but there were two men talking about the stock room.
"I need to get some files for my work over the holiday. How do I get in?"
Jane and I froze.
"There’s a key holder. I think it is that chap David in Registration. You know, he sits by that new woman, Jane."
"Jane! Isn’t she the one that Simon and Richard were making a play for, tonight?"
"Yes, the good-looking woman with those seamed stockings. God, I’d like a chance to get her into my department. She’d make coming to work a pleasure."
"You just fantasize, Jim. I’ll find David and get the key. Come with me. We’ll have a better chance of finding him." The voices faded.
Jane looked at me; there was both fear and disappointment in her eyes. "Another time I think, David. Let’s get out of here and quickly"
Jane dressed and made sure she was tidy. I checked outside the door and we walked back into the party. Thankfully, no one noticed. Jim found me and I went up with him to open the stockroom door once more. I could sense Jane’s perfume and it brought the sensation back to me. Perhaps it had been better that we were interrupted, as I don’t think that we would have behaved ourselves.
When I got back to the party Jane was ready to leave.
She gave me a peck on the cheek. "Thanks for almost taking care of me."
"You know Jane you are the sexiest woman I’ve ever met. You’re my Mrs. Robinson. You remember she also wore nylons."
"Thanks for the compliment. I’ve always enjoyed that film and Anne Bancroft is a great actress." She swept into the lift and turned towards me. There was no one about and she slowly lifted the skirt of her dress above the tops of her black nylons just as the doors closed."
I went home from the party with the memory of those stocking tops.
For Christmas I bought Jane a copy of the Graduate.
THE CHAUFFER by CityBoy
"OK Michelle, I'll do it, but don't tell your sister" Ken said, "I don't know if Mercedes would care or not, but I don't want to take any chances". Michelle shook her head and told Ken not to worry, why would she tell her sister that the camera man hired for the day spent time taking pictures of her. Anyway, Michelle knew Mercedes wouldn't care. "Are you ready?" Michelle asked Ken, and when he gave her the thumbs up sign, Michelle started into the garage.
The premises for Michelle being there at all was the contest that Mercedes had held on her site. All of her thousands of fans were invited to participate. One lucky fan would win and be invited to actually watch a Mercedes photo shoot, and that shoot was today. Michelle, Mercedes' younger sister was posing as the limo driver and chaperone. Since the winner was to be treated like royalty, Michelle was also dressing to be a sexy limo driver, not just someone in a black suit and tie. And, since Michelle really looked up to her sister and all the fabulous videos and pictures she produced, she wanted to try some on her own. Heck, who knows, Mercedes might like them and do a sister site. But anyway, Michelle was ready, the camera was rolling, and she needed to concentrate on making this video great. With confidence and pride, Michelle walked into the garage along side the long, sleek limo. The camera picks her up, as well as her reflection in the shinny black paint of the car. She is dressed in white jacket, black skirt, black stockings and heels. Her long blonde hair is pulled up elegantly, and as she approaches the desk you can see she is wearing a bow tie. Oh yea, quite the picture of seduction. As Michelle is sitting there, posing, pandering to the camera, the phone rings. Not wanting to stop filming, she picks it up and almost busts out laughing to find it is Mercedes on the other end. Michelle has to fight to keep from giggling and laughing as she assures her sister that everything is fine, the car is ready, and she will be there as planned to pick her up and take her to meet the winner of the contest. Hanging up the phone, Michelle thinks that she had better give one last check of the car... she knows how particular Mercedes is and she doesn't want to let her down.
Michelle notices some smudges on the windows, so she goes to get the cleaner and figures this will make great video footage... all the stretching and bending around the car, her short black skirt sliding up her long legs, teasing the camera with glimpses of the tops of her stockings. Just the thought of all that was making her feel very sexy, very seductive, and frankly a little hot! Playing to the camera Michelle runs her hands along her shapely long legs, her soft fingers so gently gliding along the nylon stockings, up over her knees, along her thighs. After the windows are clean, it is time for more, much more fun with the camera. Michelle sits in the driver seat, slowly reaching down to remove the white high heel shoes she has on, and replacing them with black ones. Once again straightening and smoothing her silky black stockings, Michelle stands and turns from the camera, bending over to allow her tiny skirt to slowly rise along her legs, teasing the camera as the tops of the stockings are revealed. Watching herself in the shinny black paint of the long limousine, Michelle caresses her legs, adjusts her skirt, and succeeds in getting herself into the spirit of the video. She no longer feels like she is being video taped, but rather that she is there with her lover, slowly trying to seduce him, to lure him into the limo with her where she can finally have him.
Michelle, now in character in more than just body, begins to do a seductive striptease for her imaginary lover. The white jacket slides off her body, down her lovely arms and is placed over the stool at the desk. Next is the first blouse to come off... again as if telling the lover that isn't there "I'm yours, all yours, but you have to wait for me". As the blouse comes from her feminine shape, her vest and last blouse are revealed, but the vest quickly is gone. Now the real seduction begins. Michelle is feeling more erotic and feminine than ever, almost oblivious to the camera now. You can almost hear her moans of delight as she begins to slide her hands over her curvaceous body. There is a silent gasp of breath as she reaches her large, plump breasts, gently caressing them feeling them, massaging them. Her hands slide down her front, over her flat stomach as she savors the feel of her shiny satin slip in her fingers. Her body tingles with excitement as she caresses herself, her breasts, her ass, her thighs. It is almost too much for Michelle to stand, and she decides she had better sit down before she gets so weak in the knees that she falls. Lowering herself slowly into the drivers seat of the limousine her long slender legs are left out of the car providing a very classic pose, that if the seductress teasing her prey with a lasting look of her stockings as she pulls them into the car, to drive off into the sunset. By now, Michelle is totally lost in the fantasy, and instinctively begins caressing herself again, fantasizing that her lover is now touching her. Her hands slid over the shinny white slip, along her smooth black stocking, along her bare inner thighs, over her heaving breasts, over her arms and shoulders. Now, totally aroused, Michelle opens her vivid blue eyes and looks directly into the camera, piercing the lens with her gaze, smiling seductively, caressing her large breasts caringly. In her mind, it is no longer her fingers touching and playing with her now hard nipples, but the hands of a lover. Those same hands move down her body, to her tender, bare inner thighs, over her panties. She is even hotter now, more adventuresome, and the blouse comes off. It isn't long before she is clad only in her bra, panties, stockings and shoes while she continues to touch, caress, explore the erotic pleasures of her fantasy. As she leans forward toward the camera, exposing her ample cleavage Ken can barely control his self and keep the camera still.
Almost as if awakened from her dream, Michelle realizes that she does have work to do, and, still dressed in just her heels, stockings, panties and bra, she walks around the car to fill it up with gas. No filling station attendant EVER looked this good, and luckily, Ken keeps the camera rolling. After the limo is filled and the hose returned to it's hook, Michelle walks around the limo, opens the door and gets in. "Whew!" Ken gasps as he turns the camera off and grabs a drink... "Michelle, that was HOT!". Michelle smiles at him... "I'm not done yet" she says with a smile and a wink. I've got some more... get in" and she points to the front seat.
In the back seat there is a fluffy black blanket, and Michelle takes full advantage of it. As she lays across it, her soft, supple skin is almost tickled by the feel, which only increases the stimulating sensations she has been feeling. As she begins to caress herself again, as if the break in the action never occurred. Michelle's eyes are on fire, passion flowing from them like water falling over a cascading waterfall. It is obvious that she is no longer just "acting", but she is experiencing her fantasy. Her hands slide slowly over her firm, round ass, over her legs, along her soft stockings. As she continues as if her lover and she are engaged in a long episode of foreplay, the lacey black bra is soon on the floor of the limo. Michelle cups and caresses her large, plump breasts, teasing the camera with them, almost exposing them, yet turning away just before her lover can see them. Her smile is intoxicating, her eyes inviting, her look perfect. This goes on and on, Michelle almost completely loosing track of time as she caresses her breasts, as the fluffy blanket gently tickles her skin, as the imaginary lover seduces her with her own touches.
Ken, not wanting to turn off the camera and end the erotic experience, nods his head toward the clock, silently telling Michelle that she had better get going or she will be late picking up Mercedes. Camera still rolling, Michelle turns away from the camera and puts her bra back on. Ken captures the seductive way Michelle puts her clothes back on, almost as seductively as the earlier striptease she performed. As she checks her look one more time in the shinny black limousine, Michelle gets into the car and drives away. Ken, on the other hand jumps into his car and follows... so that Mercedes will have no idea what her younger sister was up to. As they arrive at the Sawmill Inn where they are to meet Mercedes, Ken pulls out his camera, goes to the limo and opens the door for Michelle. "Girl, you are awesome!" he tells her. Michelle smiles back at him, reaches up and gives him a gently kiss on the cheek... "Thanks Ken... you're the best. I just hope Mercedes likes it... and that I have the nerve to show it to her". Ken stands up, backs away from the car and gets his camera ready. "Here she comes", Ken says as he sees Mercedes coming out the Sawmill Inn door, "rolling".
Ken begins filming Mercedes, her hair flowing over her shoulders, done in long twisting curls, her long black dress, cut low with spaghetti straps, full view of her wonderful cleavage. She is wearing a necklace, black gloves and stockings, and has a drink in her hand. Ken can't help but think how much Michelle and Mercedes look alike. If he didn't know better, they could be twins. Ken jumps in the car and films from the front seat. He senses Michelle next to him, she is still radiating her passion and desires she built up with her filming. The atmosphere in the limousine was filled with eroticism and passion. Mercedes herself had that special air about her, the look of someone ready to seduce a lover, and she had just entered the car. "Take me to my retreat" Mercedes said as the limo lunged forward and began to drive away. All the way to the retreat the camera stays on Mercedes as she sips her drink, removes her gloves, and begins to ready herself for the special photo session that awaits her with her special guest. But to see that my friends, you have to buy the video.
My Awakening by Jhon SEPTEMBER'S WINNER
When I was in high school, I lived in Switzerland where my father had been transferred to work in the European headquarters of an American company. At first I went to a private Swiss school, but changed to a Catholic boarding school after my first year. The Catholic school was in a nearby city, an easy train ride of about an hour.
The train is where the fun began for me. I can remember relishing the thought of taking the train because of the unique seating pattern—and the potential to enjoy views of women’s legs and stockings! Swiss trains in the early 1970s were still designed so passengers faced each other, three to a row. Swiss women often wore skirts and nylons.
I would start my trips by scouting out the crowd waiting for the train. Were there any particularly attractive females waiting to board? If so, I would linger in the vicinity of the pretty passenger in hopes of taking a seat across from her on the train. After several trips, I was adept at finding my way to the most pleasant of surprises—the presence of an unsuspecting, attractive woman sitting in my view.
Naturally, I was very self-conscious and did not want to be caught spying on pretty woman. Sometimes it would take me fifteen minutes to catch a furtive look at the particular woman across from me. It was always easier to look at her shoes and ankles, as I could fake a snooze or a seemingly natural downward-cast glance. I wanted to look at legs and study the stockings and the skirts covering them. And yes, the difficulty in casting a bold look at the target of my interest made the situation that much more exciting. When I did catch a look, I usually reveled in the mysterious beauty of the opposite sex and retreated into fantasy. I never dared speak nor look for too long.
One particular ride I happened to face a very relaxed, attractive woman down two seats from me in the same compartment area. She was of medium stature and brown hair, maybe 35 to 40 years old. She smiled at me as soon as she noticed me—and I was just a sixteen-year-old adolescent enthralled by the marvels of women’s legs, shoes, stockings—and more! Her friendliness emboldened me to notice what she was wearing. I remember the loose red blouse, opened an extra button and pushed firmly out despite a loose fit. Over the blouse was an open navy jacket, which was often pulled back to allow for a crossing of legs and a repositioning of her bottom, an exciting movement in itself! Her openness did not relax me at all: I was too young, anxious, and sexually immature to ever dream of smiling back. No, I was locked into stealing looks at her and her tight skirt over nylons.
The first surprise to me was that this woman was, as I mentioned, so carefree in her body language, not typical of Swiss women. She frequently crossed her legs, and I could hear the rustling of her hose and skirt. I was amazed to discover, eventually, that her skirt showed both the firm roundness of her thighs and derriere, as was as the outline of what I could see were garters under the skirt.
With someone so confident and free as she was, I did begin to look at her more boldly and frequently, enjoying the wonderful sexiness of her look, manner and dress. My sneak-looks at her made for an immediate physical reaction, and I became aware of revealing my own sexuality--with my penis growing and pushing against my pants.
As the trip advanced, the other passengers seemed oblivious to both me and her, and I started to look at her more and more. I noticed that her skirt was rising ever so little—but noticeably, nevertheless. For a good while, she closed her eyes to sleep, but she surprised me suddenly when she opened her eyes and found me looking at her legs. My visual intrusion did not affect her negatively at all; in fact, she seemed to relax more into her seat and then smiled gently off into the other direction.
I renewed my stares, and imagined the incredible experience of touching her legs and stockings, reaching for the garter and beyond—or, more precisely, above. My sexual awakening was so intense, and I enjoyed it with abandon and lust as I had never known.
After another prolonged period of studying her, I looked out the window next to where she was sitting, saw her reflection and realized that she was watching me stare at her. Again, she did not react negatively. She crossed her legs once again, but this time I could actually see the top of a stocking; as she relaxed, her skirt lifted to where I detected her garter connected to her stocking.
By this time I could feel my own wetness. My arousal was full and deep. I looked at my passenger whenever I wanted. She never flinched. I looked and looked and looked. She let me. She smiled off in the other direction but for me.
Finally, I could feel the train momentum change, and instead of the free moving, heavy, slick and determined weight of the engine’s moving forward, there was a slow decline, with a release of speed and motion as we came to the station.
The passengers around me quickly stood and exited, except for the woman. She gathered her blouse, touched her skirt and pulled her jacket a little as she stood. As I sat there transfixed, she left me with a wide, loving, accepting smile—unprovoked by anything more than her having enjoyed being the object of my longings.
From that day, I have worshiped the woman who dresses in fine clothes and loves the presence of an adoring male. My awakenings on that train are my full joy today as I am a man who adores stockings, garters, blouses on the woman who adores wearing them for me.
GETTING THAT RISE OUT OF MR M
My favorite stockings story is I admit almost thirty years old but goes back to the days – the early seventies - soon after we got married. I don’t honestly know why Phil and me got married. Yes, we were in love with each other but in the permissiveness of those birth pill times we had come to value our freedom – of thought, action and sex! We were both very much party animals and we loved sex, our friends were great company, libidinous and all good looking yet here we were, in a one-to-one relationship. It didn’t make an awful lot of sense and it didn’t take long before we started to swing with other the marrieds in our group of friends, eventually widening it out to meet and enjoy the company of total strangers, young marrieds like us, as well as mid-aged couples.
Soon after Phil and I got hitched, he bought me some black seamed stockings, black garter belt and matching panties and bra. Since, like most females, I’d switched in the mid sixties to pantyhose to facilitate enjoying wearing mini and micro-length skirts as well as cutaway hot pants, wearing stockings in public was a ‘no-no’. So, I put them on for him in bed. I couldn’t believe the transformation. He went from a great lover to a fabulous lover! His manhood was decidedly bigger, he launched into some great, almost endless and very satisfying foreplay, some amazing cunnilingus, kissing the pointed heels of my stockings, then the welts, garter hooks, before easing away my panties and consummating his desire, delaying his orgasm far longer than I’d expected. I was suitably impressed!
A few days later he came home with some more goodies – dark brown seamed stockings - this time paired with a full set of dark brown lingerie and a little fine gold chain which he clipped onto my left ankle. Once again, the sex was truly amazing. The foreplay was out of this world. I’d been serviced like this by other men, mainly older more suave and sophisticated types I’d swung with, but never experienced anything like this with Phil before and – for a second night - wished for it not to end!
It didn’t take me too long to start thinking about wearing stockings on other occasions than in bed to fire Phil’s libido. In my naivety I had absolutely no idea that stockings turned men on in such a way! I’d worn stockings with seams in the late fifties, when I first started working, and recall countless young cute guys off the shop floor, older married ones from the offices, groping me, fumbling over stockings and hooks, but I paid no real heed to that since I assumed that all they really wanted to do was get into my panties. The good looking ones invariably did, while the older guys and not so good-lookers got a blow job!
So, I asked Phil if he’d object to me occasionally wearing stockings to work. His eyes lit up! Bingo! “No, honey, you go right ahead!” So I bought four skirts, all knee length, in flannel, black, tan and plaid, a Stewart tartan. Two were tight, pencil numbers with back slits, the other two were flounced ‘A’ line designs. I also invested in more seamed stockings – black, dark brown, mid brown, nude, white – in a variety of heels from pointed to Cuban, along with a new wardrobe of lingerie to match my new collection of stockings.
When he got home I showed Phil my day’s shopping. He was ecstatic! He demanded that I lengthen the back slits on the pencil skirts. “Really? Won’t that show too much darling?” He smiled knowingly. The rascal! What did he want his wife to look like? You couldn’t obviously see stocking seams below the hem of the skirt but above - well, the lengthened slit appeared to reveal stocking tops as I walked, like some dumb model, up and down, across the bedroom floor, Phil sitting in the armchair obviously relishing the moment. It didn’t take long before he had his pants open and his burgeoning manhood on display. I slipped out of the skirt, fell on the floor in front of him, brought my mouth down over Phil’s long fat girth and gave him some slow, relaxing, enjoyable head.
Now in the early seventies life was pretty uptight. The swinging sixties had come and gone and people were just as repressed as ever. I worked in a small family law firm. The senior partner was old man Joe McCloughlin, the junior partners were his son Troy and Rosita, and I guess Joe was late fifties, while Troy and Rosita were early thirties. The core value of the firm was gravitas at all times, along with dedication to the client and a complete lack of emotion. Not surprisingly, nobody noticed that I had switched overnight from wearing short skirts to long skirts teamed with black seamed stockings, the gilt ankle chain - barely perceptible under the nylon of my stockings -and high heels. Or so I thought.
About three weeks later I was in with Joe taking some dictation when he asked me to go and get a law book from the top shelf of his bookcase. Up the ladder I went and eventually found the volume. Then I realized why he had asked me to go and get the book! He wanted to get a good view of my seamed stockings! I laughed silently to myself and put out a leg to ensure the deep slit at the back fully opened to reveal stocking tops, garter hooks and thigh! Then I turned. He was sat there with mouth wide open, gaping in disbelieve. Then he looked at me and dropped his head in embarrassment, quickly fumbling for his cigar.
I got back down, walked to the desk and pushed the book towards him, “You OK Mr McCloughlin?”
“Yes, yes,” he spluttered, lighting up his cigar. “I didn’t know you wore stockings, Ann, when did you start that?”
“You don’t like me wearing them, Mr McCloughlin?”
“No, I didn’t say that. I love stockings.”
“Well, Phil, my husband, suggested it. I guess he wanted to remember the days when all the ladies wore stockings with seams.”
“Yes, I remember when my wife wore stockings, now she wears these awful pantyhose! They are so sexless, don’t you find?”
“Well, Mr McCloughlin, I used to wear pantyhose all the time, still do when I wear my short skirts or jeans. But you’re right, stockings are very sexy to wear, sexy to look at, and they certainly excite Phil!”
“Well, they are certainly exciting me so I suggest we progress at a slow pace on this one.”
“What do you mean Mr McCloughlin?”
“Well, you cannot wear stockings to the office, almost give me a heart attack without my having some enjoyment.”
“Yes, Ann, enjoyment.”
“You’ve lost me Mr M. Please explain.”
He inhaled on the cigar and blew out a shaft of slate-colored smoke. “You can’t take your skirt off here, can you? So, I’m suggesting we take off one afternoon and go get ourselves a motel room where I can admire your stockings without any busybodies knowing!”
I walked round his desk and sat on the edge and feigned shock. “Mr M! Really now, we are both married! We cannot go off and get a motel room just like that!”
“Why not, girly?” He asked, his finger playing with the chain on my left ankle, locked under the soft sensuousness of my nylons.
“Because you’re married – and old enough to be my dad!”
“Bah! That’s bull! Bet if you were honest, you’d enjoy making love to me as much as me doing you!” He chortled, his hands pushing the hem of my skirt up until it revealed the twin-banded welts of my stocking tops and garter hooks. His fingers played with the hooks, eventually sliding across the nylon of the stocking tops and onto my thighs, “And why does Mrs M wear pantyhose? Doesn’t she ever wear stockings?” His fingers had now reached the edge of my panties. I threw the hem of my skirt over his hands and arms just in case someone walked in without knocking. He looked me in the eye. “You shave down there, do you?”
“Mr M! That’s a very personal question!”
“Well – do you?!” His finger slid inside the front of my panties.
“Well, do I?”
“Guess you do, girly. Why’s that?” His finger followed the twin vertical lips of my pussy.
“Why do you think? I do it for Phil. He doesn’t like a forest down there, and neither do I! Very un-hygienic, I reckon, so I trim it, not really shave it all off. I guess I trim two or three times a week. Phil likes to tongue me down there so - ”
“ – who’s Phil?!”
“Jeez! You’re married!” His face contorted into a look of aggrieved pain while his hands slid down my thighs to rest once again on my stocking tops and garter hooks
“Sure I am! So are you! Why don’t you go home and shave Mrs M?!”
“Why don’t we go to that motel? Have a bit of fun!”
“OK, I’ll go but if I’m gonna give you a rise then you can give me one. A pay rise!”
“Jeez, you must be joking!”
“No, deadly serious Mr M. Twenty dollars a month!”
“Shit! Where d’ya think that sort of money’s going to come from?”
“Mr M I do a lot round here! Fix meetings. Do the diaries. Make the coffee. Clean the office. Keep all the law books in order, in their right place on these shelves…” He eased the hem of my skirt up and, deftly dropping his head, ran his tongue across my stocking tops onto my skin, then across to garter hooks. It felt good, horny.
I fixed my make-up, took off my blouse, skirt and panties, straightened my seams and came out of the bathroom. In the half light I could make out Mr M on his back naked, his manhood tall and proud. I stopped by the bed’s edge and dropped my head, first kissing his enlarged appendage, then taking it completely in my mouth. “Hey, girly!” he shouted, “don’t want none of that blowing. The real thing!” I laughed, climbed onto the bed, legs across Mr M’s hips, easing my self slowly down on his erect truncheon. His eyes closed and his face went into a dream-like trance, his hands caressing my stockings, fingers playing with garter hooks, fumbling for the seams. Five or so minutes later Mr M’s spunk was inside me. I looked at his contented face. “Hey Mr M, you done well!”
I got home a little later than normal, minus panties under my long pencil skirt, a trophy for Mr M. Phil was out back of the house with a beer, flicking through that month’s “Hustler”. He looked up, “Hi sweety! Good day?”
“You bet darling. You’ll never guess what?”
“What, doll? Tell me!”
“I got a rise out of old Mr M today! Twenty dollars extra a month!”
“Hey, clever girl! You’re worth every penny to those guys down there too!”
“You bet! I’m their slave, you know!”
Phil eyed my legs, “Your seams darling…they don’t look straight. Not like you to have wonky seams! Looks like the guy who humped you didn’t have an eye for detail!” We laughed, then kissed. He looked at me, “So, how is old Mr M these days?”
“Well, today it’s been pretty hectic, lot going on, big case to research…guess you could say we finished the afternoon pretty orgasmically!”
Saturday Night Live – Having Fun in ‘92
By the Bear
For my birthday, Megan promised to make a fantasy come true. She packed in
secret, telling me only that I'd be turned on and ignoring my questions
about what she might do or wear that evening. Simply put, my fantasies
involved Megan showing off to tease me, please me, and then share the
excitement of the evening. It was something special that we both enjoyed!
I could tell she was wearing classic stockings from the enticing nylon
“wrinkles” about her ankles and knees as she slid into the driver’s seat.
Though they might not fit the current fashion statement, they are a turn-on
I’ve enjoyed since my teen years. In the sixties, it was a thrill to catch
a girl reaching down to smooth her stockings, tugging them up until they lay
smooth about her trim shapely legs. Sometimes, if I was lucky, I caught a
glimpse of dark stocking tops as she reached up under her skirt to adjust
her garter straps. Such a thrill at such an age! I just never outgrew it!
But I am distracted. Megan’s playful sense of self-confidence allowed her
to turn my fantasies for her own enjoyment because she simply loves being
admired by other men! So when she slipped gently into the driver’s seat,
flashing her stockings with a flip of her short skirt, I settled on the
passenger side to see what she had planned for the weekend.
Megan headed for the city (more fun and fewer chances to be recognized!) to
a high class shopping mall. She passed up the conservative shops for a
trendy boutique and waded into the crowd as I watched from the sidelines.
She eventually surfaced with a half-dozen inexpensive, but very intriguing
party dresses with short hemlines, low-cut necklines, and filmy material
that peaked my interest before she even tried them on!
Megan then led me back to the dressing rooms, barely covered by loosely hung
curtains and I realized that she had done her homework very well!. She
paused until a dressing room in front opened up and as she stepped inside, I
looked forward to a bit of flashing as she changed her clothes. So my total
surprise, Megan smiled and then slowly and very carefully tugged the curtain
completely closed! I was stunned and almost turned to leave until she
softly called my name.
Sliding the curtains apart, Megan asked me to take her purse and then turned
away with a wink, this time leaving the curtains wide open! Her wink said a
lot and the half-open curtain said the rest! Meg simply ignored her
exposure as she changed clothes. With each new dress, Megan fully displayed
her lingerie, nylons, and garter belt for me and anyone standing nearby! It
was like a style show where she didn't care who noticed! I only wished that
I’d had my camera!
After shopping, we drove to a motel before going out bar hopping and the
game moved on to the next level! We had a great room with windows on both
sides – small ones facing the parking lot and large sliding glass doors
other side, facing a beautiful patio indoor swimming pool. There was
already a party going on. Meg unpacked and changed, dropping her skirt to
prance about in her glistening soft dark stockings, garter belt, and sheer
lace demi-bra. Only the translucent “day curtains” kept her hidden from the
crowd just outside our patio door! Eventually, Megan slipped into a short,
split front skirt and a sheer pink blouse that more than showed off her
stockings and her bra-clad breasts. Then she gave me a passionate kiss,
curtsied in her short skirt and told me that she’d picked out the perfect
bar for drinks and pool!
As we entered, we pretended we'd never laid eyes on each other before. Megan
picked out a guy at the bar and sat down alongside, allowing her skirt to
open up so he couldn't help but see her nylons. Of course it appeared
accidental, but as she ordered a drink, Megan's stockings were bared almost
to her garters as she sat calmly showing off for his pleasure! I chose a
table nearby and sat down to watch. Megan began to flirt and soon got him
to buy her a drink. She kept tugging her skirt up higher until he was
staring at the straps of her garter belt and even turned away from the bar
so that the entire crowd could see her nylons and garters!
Megan enjoyed the increasing attention, but - in the dim light - no one had
yet noticed her thinly veiled bra. Then I pointed at the vacant pool table.
Megan gave me her secret smile and we both moved toward the light,
pretending to confront each other for rights to the table! It wasn’t a
moment before I offered her a challenge of “strip pool” and she agreed!
First, it caught the attention of everyone in the bar. Second, it allowed
Megan to walk about in front of a crowd of admirer. Third, it shed a bright
light on her sexy and very filmy blouse!
This was when I first understood Megan was really running the show! She
pretended to challenge me and I bet my shirt against her blouse that she
couldn’t! The challenge instantly drew the bar crowd and they began staring
at Megan’s sheer white blouse and half exposed breasts with every shot.
Even more exciting to me, I could see Megan’s short skirt hiked constantly
hiked up to display her sexy dark tan stockings with each shot that she
I was better at pool and decided to show her! I was in charge of the
event, but Megan was in charge of the game. Even as I sank the first shot,
Megan took matters into her own hands by slipping the first button of her
semi-sheer blouse. When I sank the next shot, she grinned at me and undid a
second button! As if to confirm my growing excitement, I sank one more
shot – only to see her slyly push her bra down so far that her admirer could
see almost her bra-clad breasts!
I surrendered as she smiled at me and suggested that we go out dancing!
Megan gave me an evil grin and agreed, but mentioned that she wanted to
change clothes for the evening. Since “her” room was just down the next
block, she asked her new “friend” if he might drive her over to change
clothes. I followed them back and arrived as Megan disappeared into the
motel. As her “friend” stood outside, I pulled in where I could see our
room and then invited him over for a beer.
Then, as I hoped, a light came on and we saw Megan walk into her motel room.
Megan was making things exciting and she made no move to close the curtains
as she moved about getting ready to change. I pretended not to notice what
was going on. Then the stranger suddenly grabbed my arm and pointed to the
"Holy shit! She's taking off her clothes!" he choked and I turned to see
Megan begin to strip!
Meg pretended not to notice the open curtain by her patio and casually
unbuttoned her blouse, exposing her sexy lace bra. Then she unbuttoned her
skirt and let it fall to the floor. Megan stood there dressed only in her
bra, garter belt, stockings, and high heels. She picked up a sheer purple
dress that we could see right through, but then paused and appeared to
change her mind. She turned and disappeared into the bathroom. The guy let
out his breath and I offered him a beer.
Just then, Megan reappeared and laid out something sheer and black. Turning
to face the window, she dropped her bra and unhooked her garter belt. As we
watched in fascination, Megan slowly changed into black lingerie and garter
belt. Then she put on the black demi bra and adjusted it so that her
breasts were exposed. Remarkably, as if to give me more time to watch her
in her high heels and sexy lingerie, she walked over to the mirror by the
window to fix her makeup, standing before us in nothing but her black
half-bra, panties, garter belt and stockings.
She walked past the window a couple of times to make sure we could see her.
Then, finally, she put on her dress, grabbed her coat, and turned out the
lights as she left, pretending that she never knew we were out there
We all went dancing together. Again, Megan rode with the other guy and I
could only imagine what she was showing as I followed them to the dance
club. Megan decided to really teach me a lesson when they arrived and
slipped off to a private table without me. As I was forced to watch, Megan
continued to play up to him just to make me jealous. She kept flashing her
black stockings and allowed him to keep pulling up her skirt so he could see
her stockings and garters.
When I finally asked her to dance, Megan forgave me for giving her a hard
time and hugged me as the lights from the dance floor made her silvery dress
almost see through. When the bright lights came up again, I finally got the
chance to enjoy her fabulous black nylons, garter belt and lacy half-bra as
they showed through her sheer nylon dress! But, even as I began to enjoy my
special night, Megan had a few more surprises. By the end of the night, I
had to suggest we return to our room to keep her from taking her whole dress
Finally, we returned to our suite along the swimming pool, focused on
romance even as others partied outside our door. We began making love in
the dark until Megan pulled away to point out the crowd outside our door.
Then, she slipped off the bed and turned on the reading lamp. It wasn’t a
lot, but enough to be seen by the pool party crowd if they happened to look
Meg pulled two beers from the cooler we traveled with and strolled over by
the sliding glass door, casually peeking through the semi-sheer curtains and
then pulling them aside. I sipped on my beer, just watching her move as she
gracefully toyed with her skirt & blouse. Megan leaned forward to look out
onto the pool patio, letting her hemline hike up her behind and flashing her
trim upper thighs for my enjoyment, encased in luscious classic Hanes,
accented by her lacy black garters!
Then Megan turned and asked, cryptically, if I was ready for bed. I was
already more than excited and my answer was obvious. She smiled this time
and began to unbutton her blouse as she stood by the open curtains and
deliberately began to strip in full view of the pool partygoers outside our
Megan's black lingerie was again incredible! As her blouse dropped to the
floor, her breasts thrust forward over her half bra, nipples jutting over
the lacy cups! As her skirt unraveled and fell away, Megan’s dark lace
panties accented the dark V between her thighs and her low slung garter
belt simply highlighted her shapely thighs and the sexy black welts of her
glistening nylon stockings! It was then that she was noticed! I could see
past her as two guys climbing out of the pool looked square inside our room.
Their reaction said it! Trying not to stare, it was obvious they were
passing the word to their buddies as Megan came around the bed and stood in
front of me by the lamp, facing the sliding glass doors! I didn’t even have
a chance to speak before nodded and whispered, “I know! Just slowly reach up
and turn off the light!
I did as she asked and Megan smiled as she pushed down her panties just a
moment before the light went off! She knelt in front of me and unzipped my
pants! What followed boggled my mind. Somehow, the bathroom light was still
on and the pale light shown out across the room, highlighting us in shadows
that were just enough for privacy, but more than enough for an erotic
display of lingerie for to the gawkers outside by the pool!
Without the slightest concern for the strangers outside, Megan displayed
her long stocking clad thighs, trim black lace garter belt, and sheer bra to
turn me on before she finally slid on top and fulfilled my ultimate
“Happy Birthday”, she cooed!
A Halloween Costume Party
My girlfriend and her roommate had been planning their Halloween party all month. Everybody talked about what costume they would wear. After some convincing, Susan and I decided to dress as each other. I brought over a business suit with a white shirt, tie, and black shoes. I arrived in the early afternoon to help Sue and her roommate, Sharon, decorate. When it was time to get ready, I took a shower. After I finished, I went into Susan’s bedroom and couldn’t believe the outfit she had laid out on her bed! She was going to make me dress the part inside and out. She started with a pair of her red satin panties. I told her that would be too slutty. She reminded that I told her they were my favorites. You see, I had been in them before, but not actually wearing them (if you know what I mean). I told her the black thong panties would be good, but she insisted on some color. She wanted me to wear her shiny silver satin panties. I stayed with the black ones. As I slid them on, I felt how soft and slippery they were. They felt so good I began to get an erection. I was pushing out the small triangle of black satin, it didn’t cover me very much. She made me put on her black lace brassiere next. As she hooked it in the back, Sue told me to stuff the bra cups with her other black panties. Next she wanted me to put on her glimmering black pantyhose. They were very sheer and had a French cut panty woven into them. I always thought Sue looked her sexiest in them. I never dreamed I would be wearing them instead. As Sue helped me on with her pantyhose, she said they didn’t look quite right. The problem was my hairy legs! Sue told me I had to shave my legs. I refused! I was willing to go along with her switch in dressing, but there was no way I was going to shave my legs. A few minutes later I removed the pantyhose and we were in the bathroom with Sue doing a skillful job of removing all the hair from my legs. She put some cream on them when she was finished. I found the whole process quite enjoyable, in fact. I never had anyone shave my legs before! I especially enjoyed when she got to the upper parts of my thighs. The insides of my upper thighs seem to be very sensitive to the female touch. Sue teased about wanting to remove all of the hair below my waist. I drew the line. This time, I won the disagreement. After I had the black pantyhose on, Sue said makeup was next. She said she always put her makeup on in her underwear. That way she wouldn’t get her outfit soiled.
At this point Sharon came in and decided to help with my makeup. As Susan and Sharon put mascara, eye shadow, blush, and lipstick on me, I became aroused because of all the attention I was getting. I was sitting there with my eyes closed and a full erection in my girlfriend’s thong panties and pantyhose! Those black thong panties certainly didn’t cover very much. On Sue I thought that was great. However, when the tables were turned, I was feeling differently. Sharon asked if I was enjoying the attention. Sue was a little upset that her roommate was getting a free show. I couldn’t help it, the underwear was skimpy, and I was sticking out. Fortunately the pantyhose held me together somewhat. Sue then put the blonde wig on me. She and Sharon did my hair and finished with clip-on earrings. As I got up to put on Sue’s skirt, I snagged the pantyhose and made a run. It then traveled all the way down my leg. Sue said that was her last pair of pantyhose. She had not planned for a clumsy male to ruin her last pair of pantyhose. Sharon said she had an extra pair of stockings. Susan and Sharon always disagreed on whether to wear pantyhose or stockings. Susan was a fan of pantyhose while Sharon preferred stockings. Sharon rushed back with a pair of very fine sheer black stockings with seams up the back. After I put them on Sharon reached around my waist and hooked the black lace garter belt in the back. It was pretty tight, as Sharon was smaller than Sue was. She then hooked each of the four garters to the shiny black stocking tops. We had to adjust the garters to their full length to hook up with the stockings because I was taller than Sharon was. Sharon kept on adjusting the seams in the back, making sure they were perfectly straight. Sue did not like the way her black thong panties did not hold in my erection. She said I would have a bulge under her skirt. Sharon volunteered a black panty girdle of hers. When I put it on it was too tight. Although it did the job of holding me in, I was choking. There was no way I could wear it the entire night. Sue said her silver satin panties, which she reminded me were her previous choice for me to wear, would be the best. Reluctantly I removed the black thong panties and put on the silver satin ones over top of the garter belt. They were more comfortable. The back of the thong panties was giving me a wedgie anyway. It was at this point that I also appreciated how much better it was to wear stockings than pantyhose. The pantyhose felt so restrictive. The stockings with a garter belt and panties felt so much freer.
At this point Sharon said the bra was not stuffed big enough. She came in with a few pair of her own black satin and lace panties for me to stuff in Sue’s bra. They really made my “tits” stand out. Sue helped me on with her black leather mini skirt. Then came the sheer white blouse I gave Sue for her birthday. Although Sue always wore a lacy white camisole underneath it (for modesty’s sake), she thought it would complete the look if I were to wear it with the black brassiere showing underneath. Sue strained with the blouse to button it up the front. The sheer white blouse could hardly contain the size of my “breasts” thanks to Sharon. Sue tucked it into the skirt and zipped up the zipper. Then I crammed my feet into Sue’s strappy black high heels. As I stood up I almost lost my balance. Walking in high heels is not an easy thing. Sue put her pearl necklace and I was ready. Sue was next.
First I made Sue wear the black silk boxer shorts she had given to me as a present. Then I put my shirt on her without a bra. I buttoned up the front and tried to press down her pert breasts with their erect nipples. I told Sue she would not make a very good-looking man with erect nipples. Then on went the pants and shoes and socks. My jacket was a little large but finished off her costume well.
Sharon was finished putting on her French Maid’s costume also. Her breasts were falling out of the top and the skirt was so short that, every time she reached over or sat down, her stocking tops and garters showed. While I am critical of that now, I will soon find out, first hand, how hard it is to pull down a leather skirt to cover up your stocking tops!
The party was a lot of fun because everyone dressed in costume. It was mainly Sue and Sharon’s friends. Most of the women were boyfriend-less at the moment. They came to the party to let go and have a good time. At first the few guys who were there were shocked at my outfit. Then they realized that Sue and I switched identities and they were comfortable with it. They would squeeze my “tits” and ask me out on a date. The women, however, were subtler. At first, when I sat down, I crossed my legs as I usually do. Then Wonder Woman came into the room and whispered in my ear that she had on a pair of silver satin panties under her costume just like I did! I quickly closed my legs but had trouble stretching the leather of the skirt down far enough to cover my stocking tops. The vampiress sat next to me on the couch and put her hand on my thigh. She gently felt from the soft supple leather of the mini skirt to the shiny sheerness of the stocking. She said she always wears stockings and that sometimes her skirt is so short that she can’t help the stocking tops from peeking out from underneath, either. The panties I was wearing were getting very wet. I was afraid to stand up for fear of the bulge that would be under the leather of my skirt. Sue came into the room and quickly rescued me.
The Witch cornered me in the kitchen and started to rub her tits on mine. Then she said wanted to reach under my skirt and feel what was under there. She said she noticed a bulge and that woman don’t usually have a bulge underneath their skirts! As she was about to lift my skirt, Sue came into the kitchen and again rescued me. When the Witch left, Sue asked me what was going on? I said that her idea of going to the party dressed as each other seemed to be working out quite well. Her friends were curious about a man dressed as a woman and wanted to know exactly what lingerie I was wearing or did I have on men’s underwear underneath? Sue was beginning to regret her decision to dress me all the way. I, however, was having a blast!
The remainder of the night went well. All in all we have a great time throwing a very fun party
Subway Surprise by Jay
John was just getting on the subway on his way home
from work. It was a long day and he was very tired
from working late. "At least it's not too crowded" he
thought. He found a seat and sat down and looked
nonchalantly out the window. He thought for a moment
about Julia, an attractive woman at work he was dying
to go out with but never had the courage to ask. He
though of the sexy blue suit she wore today with black
stockings. He was a little depressed and decided to
stay on the subway and just ride for a while and
relax, something he often did. John was in his late
20s and had a good job and nice place to live but was
pretty lonely. He rarely had any female company. He
looked around and noticed a couple of attractive women
on the train and fantasized about being with them.
Then the train came to a stop and a few people got on.
John looked attentively but no one really stood out.
He looked back to the other side and stared out the
window again. Just as the train was about to take
off he heard a nice soft voice. "Is this seat taken,"
it said. John looked around and couldn't believe his
eyes. A very attractive lady was smiling at him and
wanted to sit down. "Uh, no, go ahead" he muttered.
John couldn't help but to look at her. She was
gorgeous. She had nice shoulder length brown hair.
Pretty big, dark brown eyes. Sexy lips with slight
rouge lipstick. And an overall pretty face. She had
her makeup perfect, just enough but not too much.
Then he noticed her figure. She had a nice curvaceous
body. She had on a tight purple sweater that she
filled out very fully, and a kind of short black
leather skirt. She also had on a pair of off black
stockings and black high heels. "Hi I'm Mandy" she
said. "I'm John" he said nervously. "Well, John you
looked like you needed a little company, so I sat
here. Plus you are kind of cute," she said with a
sexy smile. John got a big grin on his face he
couldn't have wiped off if he had tried. Mandy began
to talk and John listened as best he could but he was
in a trance. He kept up some part of the conversation
but not that much. A few minutes later Mandy said she
had to get off soon. She crossed her legs over
towards John. "Oops, I just had problem" she said.
"What?" asked John. "My garter belt just came
unsnapped" she answered. John got more excited than
ever. He looked down at her sexy legs and quickly got
a big erection. To his amazement she then slowly
pulled her skirt up revealing her lacey topped
stockings. John almost hit the roof, he was
delighted. "Could you help me adjust my hose" Mandy
asked. John got even more excited. "Yeah," he moaned
in awe. John reached over and gently slid his finger
under her smooth stocking top and held it up. Then he
watched in sheer ecstasy as she got her loose garter
and snapped it back in place. "Thank You," Mandy
said. "Your stockings are so smooth," John said not
wanting to let go. Mandy smiled. She got his hand
and gently rubbed it on her thighs. Her stocking felt
so smooth John could have just died happily right
there. He closed his eyes. "Just relax" said Mandy.
He was totally in heaven feeling the touch of this
beautiful lady's smooth stockings. Then the train
came to a halt. John let out a big sigh as he felt a
big wet spot form in his trousers. It was a mess but
he didn't care. "Well John this is my stop, goodbye"
Said Mandy. She pulled her skirt back down and got up
and walked out. John Smiled all the way home.
