Indeed, and with that the question becomes, "How does one facilitate the jump?"Grok wrote:Which they haven't experienced.beachlion wrote: With a skirt, it gets only better.
Now, perhaps wrapping a towel around one's self, or even the semi-luxury of a male-marketed bathrobe, isn't the best example possible -- but it is a gateway.
Skirts are an entirely different dimension for most guys -- and it's not merely the (perceived) fear of one tube rather than two. There's also fabric choices involved as well as the myriad of style choices that exist with skirts that just simply don't exist anywhere in the male-marketed world. This, alone, might unhinge some guys. What, for instance, is a guy who's worn nothing but denim in his life going to do when faced with satin or velvet? Panic. That's what. The stuff is absolutely alien. It'll look alien and it'll feel alien until he gets used to it.
However, I believe that it is possible to get guys over the hump. It'd be easier if their girlfriends/partners/wives were on-side, but that's seemingly a long-shot based on the experiences reported here. I seem to be one of the very few that had one on-side, and that was before her brain imploded -- she was leaning anti- late on in things.
Sarongs and the like are probably the best "gateway" target for guys who live in temperate climes. Hard logic and thermal theory might be better for those of us who live in a cold wet Hell like I live in (1 degree C and raining today with 100% humidity -- the cold cut like a knife). There is nothing like a lightweight summer skirt to set one's legs and feelings free! (Six months and counting...)
