I think it’s pretty safe to say, we want to make our men happy. We probably drive them crazy in the process but we genuinely want to make them happy, even if it means stepping a little outside our comfort zone.

Guys think lingerie is so easy, and in theory it’s great. You slip into something lacy, put a string of pearls between your teeth, and confidently saunter around like a pouty model in a fancy boudoir photo shoot. Sounds like fun for everyone, but the whole sexy outfit thing is far more complicated and potentially embarrassing than anyone realizes.
Ladies, if you weren’t already hesitant to surprise your guy with thigh highs and stilettos, this week’s column might make you think twice before you attempt to fulfill his fantasy. And gentlemen, hold onto your hats, because you might think twice before even asking.
When it comes to sexy lingerie, the basics are pretty easy to obtain at your local mall – think Victoria’s Secret or Frederick’s of Hollywood. It’s not particularly embarrassing to walk in and browse the merchandise at either of these locations. You can also shamelessly walk around with your hot pink striped bag and continue shopping elsewhere without feeling the least bit embarrassed.
But when he requests something more… ummm… complicated… say a slutty nurse’s uniform or vinyl catsuit, my first thought is always, “Where the hell am I supposed to find THAT?!?” There are actually plenty of places, but unfortunately they are often located in shady areas, like right off the highway next to the adult movie store with the broken neon sign flashing overhead.
