Legs are designed for mobility, jumping or squatting; that’s it. But human culture over the millennia has also used legs for adornment and a means of attraction by both men and women.
I have always been interested in female looking legs since I was a teenager. I would watch TV sitcoms to see the legs of Mary Ann Summers, Samantha Stevens, Joanie Cunningham and Agent 99. The shows were amusing, but the real reason I watched was for the legs. I’m sure you know the names of those programs. And more recently Moira and Alexis Rose of Schitt’s Creek.
In a high school French class one year, I was seated next to a girl who wore a wide variety of stockings and pantyhose over the days. The colours, textures and stylings were many. I was interested to see if there was a pattern to her choices, so I actually documented what she had on day after day. As the months went by I determined that there was no pattern, just her whim each day.
On the internet a few days ago I discovered the word “crurophilia”; the love of or the erotic fixation on legs. I don’t think I have a fixation or love of legs, but I really appreciate a woman’s legs.
Most woman, cis and trans, have attractive legs. I think mine are OK looking, and I have been told I have fantastic legs, but I think that person was just being kind in saying so.
How do you define great legs? One criteria I have found is the “three diamond test”. When standing straight with legs together there should be three diamond shapes formed by the contours of the legs: between the ankles and the calf, between the calf and the knees, and between the knee and the upper thigh.
I only have one elongated diamond shape above the knee; so not that great. My calves are not sufficiently defined to make the diamond shapes above and below them. But my legs are long, which is another criteria for great legs.
And I do love putting on pantyhose or stay up stockings.
It is a shame that our culture has woman moving away from showing off their legs. When I am out it is usually wearing a skirt or a dress at knee length.
When I look at any woman I first look at their legs. I know most of us sisters like to show off our legs. What’s with that? It is because they are beautiful! Be proud, show the world how beautiful you are, and how feminine.
